               SGC. GATEROOM. Resume.

               
                                     YU
                         We are political dignitaries! How dare 
                         you prevent us from leaving!
 
                                     WEIR
                         Sending ships here to attack us is an 
                         act of war, and a foolish one at that, 
                         given what our defences are capable 
                         of.
 
                                     OSHU
                         My lord did not order such action.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Then undo it. Tell the System Lords 
                         to call the ship back.
 
                                     AMATERASU
                         The decision they have made is one of 
                         desperation, forced upon them by your 
                         unwillingness to help. Persuading them 
                         to change course can only be done in 
                         person.
 
                                     OSHU
                         With a full Council vote.

                                     WEIR
                         Even if I did believe you, all good 
                         faith is out the window at this point. 
                         Youíre our prisoners. Take them away!
 
                         
               (Guards escort them out of the Gateroom.)

               
               THORíS SHIP. The ship exits hyperspace at Orilla. An Asgard appears 
               on the viewscreen.
 
                                     PENEGAL
                         Greetings, Thor.

                                     THOR
                         Greetings. Tealíc, this is Penegal of 
                         the Asgard High Council.
 
                                     PENEGAL
                         I regret to report that the debris from 
                         the destroyed Replicator ship cannot 
                         be contained. We were unable to prevent 
                         countless Replicator blocks from raining 
                         down on Orilla. They have already begun 
                         replicating and infesting our systems. 
                         Control of the city is in jeopardy.
 
                         
                                     TEAL'C
                         Should you not consider evacuating your 
                         people?
 
                                     PENEGAL
                         That is no longer possible.

                                     THOR
                         There are too many. We carried numerous 
                         stored minds aboard the computers of 
                         our ships when we fled our homeworld. 
                         When Orilla was finally found, we were 
                         able to place those minds into cloned 
                         bodies so that we could build our new 
                         colony.
 
                                     PENEGAL
                         The Replicators have already infected 
                         systems needed to save those minds. 
                         If we lose this battle, they will perish 
                         along with their bodies, taking with 
                         them the hopes of the Asgard race.
 
                         
                                     THOR
                         Orilla is the last chance of ever rebuilding 
                         our empire.
 
                                     TEAL'C
                         Then we must find a way to save it.

                         This is Colonel Lionel Pendergast of 
                         the United States Air Force Prometheus. 
                         Unidentified vessel, failure to reply 
                         will constitute an act of aggression 
                         and we will respond with the full force 
                         of our weapons.

                         That will be unnecessary.

               (Pendergast and his crew grin in relief.)

                                     OFFICER

                         I offer greetings from Thor, the Supreme 
                         Commander of the Asgard fleet. We are 
                         aboard the ĎDaniel Jacksoní.
 
               
               SGC. BRIEFING ROOM. The System Lords are under guard. Doctor 
               Weir comes in.
 
                                     WEIR
                         I have just received word that the Asgard 
                         have arrived. They want to witness the 
                         demonstration of our new Ancient defence 
                         technology that you have forced us into. 
                         Thereís still time to call off the attack.
 
                         
                                     AMATERASU
                         We would also like to witness the demonstration.
 
                         
               (Daniel comes up from the Control Room.)

                                     DANIEL
                         Your ship isnít coming. It was destroyed 
                         en route by Baíal. The collective forces 
                         of the System Lords are bowing, and 
                         youíre losing the war.

               (A transporter beam envelops Daniel and he appears on ...)

               
               THORíS SHIP.

                                     DANIEL
                         Hey guys!

                                     THOR
                         Our new colony is in grave jeopardy. 
                         The Replicators escaped from the time 
                         dilation device and are threatening 
                         to destroy the Asgard.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         OK, so what can we do?

                                     TEAL'C
                         Thor believes the Ancient knowledge 
                         stored in OíNeillís mind may be the 
                         key to defeating the Replicators once 
                         and for all.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Jackís frozen down in Antarc ... (Thor 
                         operates a control and Jackís body appears 
                         in a stasis capsule on the bridge.) 
                         ... tica. (He walks over and looks down 
                         at Jack, then turns to Tealíc.) As I 
                         was saying, whereís Sam?
 
                                     TEAL'C
                         She was captured by the Replicators. 
                         Their ship was destroyed.
 
               
               BEDROOM. Sam wakes up in a pretty sunlit bedroom. After looking 
               around in confusion, she sits up, and we see that she has long 
               hair and is wearing a nightdress. She gets out of bed and walks 
               across to the mirror on the closet door, staring at herself in 
               disbelief.
 
               
               KITCHEN. Sam, now dressed in slacks and a short-sleeved shirt, 
               comes downstairs into the kitchen and looks around.
 
               
               OUTDOORS. Now wearing a coat over her clothes, Sam comes out 
               and investigates. A dog comes over to greet her and she strokes 
               it before walking on. Horses can be heard neighing nearby. She 
               walks over to where a pony is grazing in a paddock by a barn. 
               She hears somebody coming out of the barn and turns to look. 
               Itís Pete.
 
                                     PETE
                         Hey, sleepyhead! Didnít think youíd 
                         ever get up! It *was* kinda a long night, 
                         huh?! (He nudges her as he walks past 
                         her.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Pete.

                                     PETE
                         Whatís up? Are you OK? Something wrong?
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Yes! *Everything!*

                                     PETE
                         What do you mean?

                                     CARTER
                         *This!* What are you doing here? What 
                         am *I* doing here?! Where the hell *is* 
                         here?!
 
                                     PETE
                         That was good. You had me Ė you really 
                         had me! Of course, Iíve been up since 
                         five feeding the pigs and chickens.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         No, Pete, honestly, I donít ...

                                     PETE
                         What? You donít what?

                                     CARTER
                         Think this is real.

                                     PETE
                         You hungry? Iím starving. Címon, weíll 
                         go inside, Iíll whip you up some pancakes.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         You donít understand. This isnít happening. 
                         The last thing I remember, I was onboard 
                         a Replicator ship. This is just another 
                         way of screwing with my mind.
 
                                     PETE
                         OK, hereís what I got. This is not SGC, 
                         itís Montana. Nothing weird happens 
                         here Ė not like youíre used to. A year 
                         ago you left the Stargate programme 
                         because of mental stress, and because 
                         you wanted to be with me and a farm 
                         full of really stinky animals. Since 
                         then youíve been seeing a shrink because 
                         you canít seem to shake the nightmares. 
                         Youíve had a bad one, OK? Thatís it.

                         do I have to call the doctor?

               THORíS SHIP Ė THE DANIEL JACKSON. The ship is in hyperspace on 
               its way back to Orilla. Thor walks towards the stasis capsule.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What are you gonna do?

                                     THOR
                         Iím going to merge OíNeillís mind with 
                         the shipís computer.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         To do that, youíre gonna have to defrost 
                         him first, right? I bring this up because 
                         he was near death when we froze him.
 
                         
                                     THOR
                         Hopefully the pod will sustain his life.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL

                         What other choice do we have?

                                     DANIEL
                         Well canít you just save him, like the 
                         last time this happened? Just wipe the 
                         Ancient knowledge from his mind.
 
                                     THOR
                         And lose any chance of finding a means 
                         to defeat the Replicators.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         You have no right to risk his life.

                         I believe OíNeill would approve.

                                     DANIEL
                         We canít make that choice for him, no 
                         matter whatís at stake. Canít you just 
                         extract the Ancient information into 
                         the shipís computer? Then we can all 
                         benefit from it, even learn how to use 
                         the Ancient weapons on Earth.

                         You cannot even begin to comprehend 
                         the extent of what was unfolding in 
                         OíNeillís mind. Our scientists, long 
                         ago, extracted parts of the Ancient 
                         library of knowledge and learned much 
                         from it. But we have been studying it 
                         for as long as I can remember, and *we* 
                         have barely scratched the surface.

                         I am hoping OíNeillís conscious mind 
                         can provide us with a direct conduit 
                         to the information we need.

                         the System Lords at bay. The fleet he 
                         used to attack Earth was small compared 
                         to that which Baíal will command should 
                         he defeat the System Lords. He will 
                         rule the galaxy. No weapons will be

                         be more useful to you out there. Perhaps 
                         I could be of some use to you here.
 
                         
               
               MONTANA FARMHOUSE. Sam and Pete are finishing breakfast.

                                     CARTER
                         Thanks. That was great. (Pete picks 
                         up the plates and takes them to the 
                         sink.) Tasted very real.
 
                                     PETE
                         Hey, I was thinking we could go into 
                         town tonight Ė have dinner, see a movie.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Come on, you canít really expect me 
                         to just play along.
 
                                     PETE
                         I gave up my job for this! I gave up 
                         my *life* for you!
 
                                     CARTER
                         See, that is definitely not Pete.

                                     PETE
                         How patient do you expect me to be?
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Nothing you say is gonna convince me. 
                         I know who you are, I just donít understand 
                         why. What do you want from me? Why are 
                         you doing this?
 
               (Pete walks towards her and, as he does, transforms into Fifth.)
 
               
                                     FIFTH
                         Because I love you. (He smiles sweetly.)
 
                         
               
               THE DANIEL JACKSON. Thor and Tealíc are looking at a monitor.

                         What is it?

                                     THOR
                         I am unsure. It seems OíNeillís mind 
                         is building something, virtually, in 
                         conjunction with the shipís computer. 
                         (He and the others look at the stasis 
                         capsule.) I do not know how much longer 
                         his life can be sustained.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Jack, can you hear me?

               (Alarms go off.)

                                     THOR
                         I must revive him now.

                                     OíNEILLíS VOICE
                         Wait! Not yet!

               (Thor operates controls which remove the Ancient knowledge from 
               Jackís brain, then revive him. The lid of the stasis capsule 
               slides open and Jack opens his eyes and immediately lifts his 
               hand to his head.)
 
                                     O'NEILL
                         Oy! What a headache!

                                     DANIEL
                         Take it easy. Youíve been through a 
                         lot.
 
               (Jack takes his hand away from his head and looks at Daniel, 
               then realises that heís on an Asgard ship.)
 
                                     O'NEILL
                         What now?!

                                     DANIEL
                         Er, whatís the last thing you remember?
 
                         
                                     O'NEILL
                         Getting my head sucked by one of those 
                         damned Ancient head-suckers. And something 
                         about twins. (He looks at Tealíc.) Tealíc 
                         Ė whatís with the hair?
 
                                     THOR
                         OíNeill.

                                     O'NEILL
                         Thor. You got aspirin?

                                     THOR
                         You should feel better momentarily and 
                         your memory will slowly return.
 
               (Jack nods, then looks at Tealíc again.)

                                     O'NEILL
                         Tealíc Ė whatís with the hair?

               (Tealíc opens his mouth but Thor interrupts.)

                                     THOR
                         The specifications for the device you 
                         created remain in the computer. I believe 
                         I can synthesise it.
 
               (The device appears on the bridge.)

                                     O'NEILL
                         Sweet. What is it?

                                     DANIEL
                         We donít know, but you made it.

                                     O'NEILL
                         No.

                                     DANIEL
                         Yes.

                                     O'NEILL
                         No.

                                     DANIEL
                         Yes.

                                     O'NEILL
                         No.

                                     DANIEL
                         Yes.

                                     THOR
                         You accessed the Ancient knowledge in 
                         your mind and instructed the shipís 
                         computer to design it.
 
                                     O'NEILL
                         Doesnít mean I know what it is.

                                     THOR
                         It was doubtful at best that he would 
                         remember. The knowledge of the Ancients 
                         is gone.
 
                                     O'NEILL
                         Alright, let me have a look. (He climbs 
                         out of the stasis capsule but his legs 
                         buckle. Daniel and Tealíc support him 
                         on either side.) Ah, got legs. Iíve 
                         got it, Iíve got it. (His legs become 
                         steadier as he shakes them out. He walks 
                         closer to the device and looks at it, 
                         then taps part of it.) Yeah. I got nothing.
 
                         
               (The ship comes out of hyperspace. Penegal appears on the viewscreen, 
               though the image is broken up with static.)
 
                                     THOR
                         Penegal, I am relieved you are still 
                         able to communicate.
 
                                     PENEGAL
                         It may not last long. Were you able 
                         to procure a means of fighting the Replicators?
 
                         
                                     THOR
                         Possibly. It still requires more research.
 
                         
                                     PENEGAL
                         You should know those infesting the 
                         colony are behaving in an organised 
                         fashion unlike any Replicators we have 
                         encountered before.
 
                                     THOR
                         Perhaps they are being controlled by 
                         a human-form leader who has yet to reveal 
                         itself.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         If a human-form Replicator survived, 
                         itís possible Sam survived too, isnít 
                         it?
 
                                     THOR
                         It is also possible the old-version 
                         Replicators created a new human form 
                         to lead them as before.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, but thereís a chance. Can you 
                         scan the planet for life signs?
 
                                     PENEGAL
                         We already have. There are none. (His 
                         transmission breaks up and disappears.)
 
                         
                                     THOR
                         Penegal, can you hear me? (No response.) 
                         We have lost contact.

                         Did you really think you could convince 
                         me that this illusion was my life? That 
                         I would just accept it?
 
                                     FIFTH
                         If it was something you wanted badly 
                         enough in your mind.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Is that why you tortured me for so long? 
                         So I would want this as an alternative?
 
                         
                                     FIFTH
                         No, I tortured you because I was mad. 
                         Why do you think I hated you so much 
                         for what you did to me? From the first 
                         moment we met, when you let me inside 
                         your mind, I saw you like no-one else 
                         ever could.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Human emotions can be very overwhelming. 
                         The fact that you feel anything at all 
                         is a miracle. It makes you very special.
 
                         
                                     FIFTH
                         Iím glad you see that.

                                     CARTER
                         No, you donít understand. I could never 
                         be happy this way.
 
                                     FIFTH
                         Then you will be unhappy for a very 
                         long time.
 
               (We see where Sam really is Ė in a Replicator facility, held 
               against the wall by Replicator blocks covering almost her entire 
               body. Only her head is free, and she is staring off into space 
               as she lives the fantasy that Fifth has created for her. Near 
               her head, Replicator bugs stand guard.)
 
               
               SGC. GATEROOM. The Gate is open. Doctor Weir stands at the foot 
               of the ramp as Yu, Oshu and Amaterasu come in and walk up the 
               ramp. Oshu turns his head and nods slightly to Weir in acknowledgement. 
               She returns the nod. Amaterasu turns near the top of the ramp 
               and walks back a few steps.

                         be branded a traitor and a coward. (She 
                         turns and follows Yu and Oshu through 
                         the Gate.)

                         Most intriguing.

                                     DANIEL
                         Can you make it work?

                                     THOR
                         To be honest, I am still unsure of exactly 
                         what *it* is.
 
               (Daniel turns and looks at Jack. Jack shrugs.)

                         Thor, this is Commander Aegir of the 
                         Valhalla. We have lost contact with 
                         the colony.
 
                                     THOR
                         Aegir, communications are down. What 
                         have you to report?
 
                                     AEGIR
                         We have located what appears to be the 
                         remains of a human-form Replicator floating 
                         in space. It obviously survived the 
                         destruction of its ship. By all appearances, 
                         it is currently inactive.

                         I am going to transport it aboard.
 
                         
                                     O'NEILL
                         Why?

                                     THOR
                         We must learn the location of the human 
                         form controlling the Replicators on 
                         the planet.
 
               (The human Replicator is beamed into the capsule. Itís badly 
               damaged, frozen in space. Itís male, but isnít First or Third 
               from ďUnnatural SelectionĒ.)

                         No.

                                     THOR
                         Hopefully not completely. All Replicators 
                         are linked by a sophisticated communication 
                         system. If we can use this one to tap 
                         into the network, we will be able to 
                         see what any of the Replicators can 
                         see.
 
                                     O'NEILL

                         him?

                         Then perhaps there is no great wisdom 
                         in this.

                         I will transport it back into space 
                         if necessary, but we must take the risk.

                         picks up two more rifles, handing one 
                         to Daniel. A distorted image appears 
                         on the computer screen.)

                         She is in a small Replicator structure 
                         on the planet. It is some distance outside 
                         the colony, near a rich vein of neutronium.

                         I thought the ship was destroyed.

                                     THOR
                         At least one of the human Replicators 
                         must have separated from the main ship 
                         with Major Carter prior to exiting hyperspace.
 
                         
               (The map disappears. Thor looks over to the human Replicator 
               in the stasis capsule, which opens its eyes and looks over at 
               the crew. Then all the damage on its body disappears.)

                                     THOR
                         I am trying. It has made itself resistant. 
                         (The transporter beam shuts off, and 
                         all power goes down.) It has breached 
                         the internal barrier and interfaced 
                         with my shipís computer.
 
               (The lid of the capsule slides open and the Replicator climbs 
               out. Jack, Tealíc and Daniel fire at it repeatedly but the Replicator 
               takes all the blasts. It looks down at the bullet holes in its 
               body, and all the holes heal. Tealíc throws himself at the Replicator 
               but it throws him aside, snatching his rifle at the same time. 
               It primes the rifle and aims at Daniel. As it fires, Daniel dives 
               for cover. Meanwhile Jack runs over to the device he created. 
               He picks it up, aims it at the Replicator and fires. The Replicator 
               disintegrates into tiny bits, even smaller than the usual single 
               blocks. Thor, who had ducked behind the control console, comes 
               back up again and looks at Jack, who shrugs.)

               which are all that is left of the Replicator and retrieves his 
               rifle.)

                         It seems to have permanently disrupted 
                         communication between the individual 
                         cells, rendering each one inert. We 
                         explored such a technology in the past

                         Even better, OíNeill. Now that I have 
                         seen what the device does, I may be 
                         able to modify a larger version to broadcast 
                         a disruption wave over all of Orilla.

               ORILLA. FOREST. Jack, Daniel and Tealíc are beamed down. Jack 
               has the Ancient Replicator-busting device. They make their way 
               through the trees. A Replicator crawls down a tree behind Tealíc, 
               who turns and blasts it into bits. More Replicators appear and 
               Daniel and Tealíc fire at them until Jack can turn his device 
               on them and obliterate them.

                         The one you call OíNeill.

                         What?!

                                     FIFTH
                         So many of us are left in the city. 
                         We cannot wait for them. They will be 
                         killed.

                         Donít expect me to be sorry.

                         Your friends. They are killing ...
 
                         
               (We see Tealíc and Daniel firing their weapons at the fleeing 
               Replicators, then Jack uses his Ancient weapon and hundreds of 
               them crumble to nothing.)
 
                                     FIFTH
                         ... trying to stop us.

                                     CARTER
                         Trying to save me.

                                     FIFTH
                         No. They do not care about you. I told 
                         them I would kill you if they did not 
                         stop. (His attention is distracted again 
                         as he receives input from the other 
                         Replicators.)
 
               (On Orilla, SG-1 finally catch up with the fleeing Replicators 
               and find where theyíve been headed. They are building themselves 
               into a Replicator-shaped (i.e. bug-shaped) spaceship.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Then why donít you kill me? You know 
                         why my friends wonít stop just to save 
                         me?
 
                                     FIFTH
                         No.

                                     CARTER
                         Because they know, when it comes right 
                         down to it, I would rather be dead than 
                         be trapped like this forever. No matter 
                         what you feel for me, I will *never* 
                         love you back. Kill me if you want, 
                         but if you have even one shred of humanity 
                         in you, if you really truly love me, 
                         youíll let me go.

               ORILLA. The Replicator ship jumps into the air, curls its legs 
               under itself and shoots into hyperspace. Moments later, Thorís 
               Replicator-buster comes to full power and he activates it. The 
               beam washes over the planet.

                         OíNeill, the weapon worked. Reports 
                         from the colony say all the remaining 
                         Replicators have been neutralised. While 
                         the ship did escape, at least we have 
                         an effective means of fighting them 
                         now.

                         asked me to supervise the research of 
                         the Ancient outpost. Itís gonna be a 
                         bit of a delicate situation, given all 
                         the various international claims already 
                         being made on the site.

                         The Pentagon has convinced the President 
                         that there is one man who could run 
                         the SGC and make it politically viable 
                         from an international perspective, despite 
                         the fact that he is part of the American

                         looks at her. She cringes.) OK, that 
                         didnít come out right.
 
                                     TEAL'C
                         I, for one, will miss you accompanying 
                         us on our missions, OíNeill.
 
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yeah, now, see, Iím not sure Iím ready 
                         to give that up either Ė sitting back 
                         watching you guys go off and have all 
                         the fun.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Risking our lives in the face of grave 
                         danger ...
 
                                     OíNEILL
                         Yeah, that.

                                     CARTER
                         Well, Iím sure thereíll be situations 
                         in which you can accompany us in the 
                         field, sir.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Youíll be in charge Ė you can do whatever 
                         you want.
 
                                     O'NEILL
                         Iíll be able to do whatever I want.
 
                         
               (Daniel, Sam and Tealíc look worried.)

                                     CARTER
                         Within reason, sir.

               
               SGC. GATEROOM. The handover ceremony is taking place. Sam, Daniel 
               and Tealíc are at the foot of the ramp, with other military personnel 
               ranged across the floor under the Control Room. Elizabeth Weir 
               walks up to the podium at the top of the ramp.
 
                                     WEIR
                         Although my time here has been brief, 
                         it has been without a doubt indelible. 
                         I will remember every one of you, and 
                         I thank you all for your hard work. 
                         Iím not one for long goodbyes, so without 
                         further ado it is with great pleasure 
                         I introduce you to your new commanding 
                         officer, Brigadier General Jack OíNeill.
 
                         
               (The side door opens and Jack, in his new uniform, walks in. 
               Everyone comes to attention. Jack walks up the ramp to the podium 
               as Elizabeth walks down to stand with the rest of SG-1.)
 
                                     O'NEILL
                         At ease. You all know how much I *love* 
                         speeches, so Iíll make this short. I 
                         wish I could say I didnít owe anything 
                         to anyone, but the truth is I wouldnít 
                         be standing here if it wasnít for the 
                         courage and support of each and every 
                         one of you. I hope I can be as good 
                         a leader as weíve had in the past, and 
                         as good as you deserve.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Hear, hear! (He starts to applaud. Everyone 
                         else joins in.)
 
                                     O'NEILL
                         The other reason I took this job was 
                         so I could do really cool stuff like 
                         this: it is with great pride that my 
                         first order of business as commander 
                         of this base is the announcement of 
                         the promotion of Major Samantha Carter 
                         to Lieutenant Colonel.
 
               (Applause. Sam looks delighted and embarrassed. Jack jerks his 
               head at her, mouthing ĎCímereí at her. She walks up the ramp.)
 
               
               (The ceremony continues as Walter reads the commendation.)

                                     DAVIS
                         The President of the United States has 
                         placed special trust and confidence 
                         in the patriotism, integrity and abilities 
                         of Major Samantha Carter. Major Samantha 
                         Carter is promoted to the grade of Lieutenant 
                         Colonel, United States Air Force.
 
                         
               (Jack has finished pinning on Samís new insignia and they now 
               salute each other.)
 
                                     O'NEILL
                         Lieutenant Colonel Samantha Carter. 
                         (Applause.) Now, raise your right hand 
                         (she does so) and repeat after me: I, 
                         insert name.
 
                                     CARTER
                         I, Samantha Carter ... (fade out)

               
               REPLICATOR SHIP. The ship has now taken the form which it had 
               earlier in the episode. Inside, Fifth stands and watches as a 
               bunch of Replicator bugs swarm over a place on the wall.
 
                                     FIFTH
                         Donít be afraid. I know the first moment 
                         of consciousness can be frightening. 
                         I will show you everything, share with 
                         you all I know. You have no idea how 
                         happy I am we were able to collect enough 
                         neutronium.
 
               (A naked human figure steps out from the wall and stands with 
               its back to us. Fifth steps back and gasps at the sight of it. 
               It is female, and has short blonde hair. [Can you guess what 
               it is yet, boys and girls?!])
 
                                     FIFTH
                         We have much time to share. We must 
                         search for a new home for our brethren 
                         to propagate. It will pass quickly for 
                         us, though. Soon enough, *everyone* 
                         will know. (He reaches out to touch 
                         its face.) Together, we *cannot* be 
                         stopped.
 
               (We finally see the face of the new human Replicator. Itís an 
               exact replica of Samantha Carter.)
 
               
               THE END
