                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 704

                                       "ORPHEUS"

                                           By

                                     Peter DeLuise

               
               
               SGC Alarms announcing unscheduled off-world activation are blaring 
               and the Stargate is dialing.
 
               
                                     DAVIS
                         (heard over the speakers) Unscheduled 
                         off-world activation.
 
               
               We see soldiers running through the corridors and taking up defensive 
               positions at the base of the ramp. The seventh chevron locks 
               and the wormhole is established behind the iris.
 
               
                                     DAVIS
                         It's SG-1's IDC, Sir. Hammond comes 
                         up behind him. Receiving audio, Sir.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         On speaker.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (over the speaker) Close quarters withdrawal! 
                         It's gonna get ugly!
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Acknowledged, Colonel. We'll be ready, 
                         just give us the word. Then to those 
                         standing guard in the 'gate room: Watch 
                         your friendlies, safeties off, clean 
                         targets, clean backgrounds.
 
               
               We hear explosions as we see a shot of the 'gate and iris.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (over speakers) Teal'c! Let's go! Base, 
                         this is it! We're on our way!
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Open the iris.

               
               We see the iris open. Then several staff blasts come through 
               and explode against the control room wall. Next we see Jack, 
               Daniel and Sam come through the 'gate.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         (running down the ramp) Teal'c's right 
                         behind us!
 
               
               The trio takes up defensive positions at the base of the ramp. 
               Then we see Teal'c come through the 'gate followed by several 
               more staff shots. O'Neill takes aim at what he know will be following 
               and we see a Jaffa come through. Jack shoots the Jaffa. The Jaffa 
               falls back as the wormhole is disconnected. Two soldier's rush 
               up to check the Jaffa and Jack keeps his weapon aimed for a second 
               until he's sure the Jaffa is down. Then he turns to see Teal'c. 
               We see smoke rising around Teal'c and hear him make a wheezing 
               sound. He is staring straight ahead, though he doesn't appear 
               to be seeing anything. Then he falls straight back and his teammates 
               rise in concern.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Med team! Get in there!

               
               Janet arrives almost immediately. She kneels down beside Teal'c. 
               We can now see that he has taken a staff shot to the abdomen.
 
               
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Teal'c? She leans her ear to his mouth 
                         to hear if he is breathing. Then turns 
                         to one of her assistants: Come on.
 
                         
               
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Start CPR. Give me one milligram Epi. 
                         Prepare to intubate.
 
               
               The scene fades out as the Assistant begins chest compressions.
 
               
               
               OPENING CREDITS

               
               SGC - Infirmary Janet picks up a vial of Tretonin and walks over 
               to a still unconscious Teal'c. She injects the Tretonin into 
               Teal'c's wrist. Teal'c regains consciousness while she is injecting 
               the Tretonin.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         You had us all very worried.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         That was not my intention.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         The staff blast hit you directly in 
                         the symbiote pouch. If you weren't on 
                         Tretonin..
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I would be dead. Ironic.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Well, you're not out of the woods yet.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Woods?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         You have more healing to do. The staff 
                         blast passed through the empty symbiote 
                         pouch and did some damage to your spine 
                         and surrounding soft tissue. In the 
                         past, I could have let your symbiote 
                         regenerate the damage. With work, you 
                         should be able to make a full recovery. 
                         Teal'c?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The Jaffa that wounded me...

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Died. His symbiote was damaged beyond 
                         repair. Look, I know this is hard for 
                         you, but you're very lucky to be alive.
 
                         
               
               SGC - Hammond's Office Sam and Daniel are reporting to the General.
 
               
               
                                     CARTER
                         Colonel O'Neill planted my radio in 
                         the underbrush away from our position 
                         and began broadcasting to create a distraction. 
                         The Jaffa fell for this diversion and 
                         half of them left the temple. We engaged 
                         the rest and escaped.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Were you able to ascertain who these 
                         Jaffa were loyal to?
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         The forehead tattoos were that of various 
                         system lords, but the majority wore 
                         the symbol of Ba'al.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Ba'al?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         His empire has expanded further and 
                         faster than anyone could have expected. 
                         Which shouldn't be a surprise to us 
                         since he now controls the combined forces 
                         of the United Alliance of the System 
                         Lords. Something we're responsible for.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         To level the playing field against Anubis.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         So, in a way, we did it to ourselves.
 
                         
               
               Just then, Janet walks in from behind Sam and Daniel.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Sir...

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         How is he?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         It's gonna be a long road back...certainly 
                         longer than Teal'c is used to, but he 
                         should get there. I've boosted his Tretonin 
                         dosage to stem off any residual infection.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Can we see him?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Yeah.

               
               Daniel looks at the General, who nods.

               
               SGC - Infirmary

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         My son? Why do you ask?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Oh, I don't know, I just thought you'd 
                         be sick of how you feeling again.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Indeed.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         No, I was just thinkin' about him recently.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Ry'ac is with Bra'tac. They are attempting 
                         to recruit rebel Jaffa. I have not heard 
                         from them and do not expect to for some 
                         time.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         (nods) What's with the uh... We see 
                         the four cups on the bedside tray. Three 
                         are empty and the fourth is still full 
                         of green jello.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         O'Neill. I believe his offering of colored 
                         gelatin was his attempt to sympathize.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Ah, well, he's thoughtful that way.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There's no need. I blame only myself.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         How is it your fault?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I fell behind. I was...

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Covering us. Teal'c?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I wish to be alone, Daniel Jackson.
 
                         
               
               Daniel doesn't immediately take Teal'c seriously, but when Teal'c 
               turns his head away, Daniel gets it.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Okay. He gets up off the stool he's 
                         been sitting on. Okay. He walks out 
                         the door. As he is entering the hallway 
                         outside the infirmary, he hears a voice 
                         say No, Master!. He looks around, but 
                         sees no one. He looks back toward Teal'c 
                         and then shakes his head, not quite 
                         sure what to think about the voice he 
                         heard.
 
               
               SGC - Work Our Center (Gym?) We see Teal'c with a brace around 
               his abdomen and back. He is between two bars, using them to support 
               the majority of his weight as he walks a few steps. A therapist 
               is standing hear the bars. Sam and Daniel are also in the room, 
               working out.

                         So they fly half-way across the galaxy 
                         in an highly advanced spaceship, but 
                         they don't use their technology to take 
                         over the planet. You know what their 
                         weakness turned out to be? Water. I 
                         mean, if that's true, why go to all 
                         the trouble to invade a planet that's 
                         two-thirds water? Not to mention the 
                         rain.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Why do you watch those movies if all 
                         you're gonna do is cut 'em up?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Come on, don't you occasionally like 
                         to see if they're getting it anywhere 
                         close to right? Daniel does not respond 
                         right away, but rather stares off into 
                         space. Hello?
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         What?

               
                                     CARTER
                         You okay?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Ever feel like you've forgotten something 
                         really important?
 
               
               C; What'd you mean?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Well, I can remember almost everything 
                         from before I died, but uh, I still 
                         can't remember anything from when I 
                         was ascended. Lately, something's been 
                         nagging at me, I guess. Something specific, 
                         I just can't pin it down.
 
               
               The camera shifts back to Teal'c and his therapist.

               
                                     THERAPIST
                         Very good, Teal'c. Okay, you're done. 
                         Teal'c doesn't stop. Instead, he turns 
                         around and prepares to go back the way 
                         he just came. Teal'c...
 
               
               That gets Sam and Daniel's attention. They get off their machines 
               and walk to the bars where Teal'c is walking again. Sam takes 
               the left side and Daniel walks to the right, next to the Therapist.
 
               
               
                                     CARTER
                         Look's like you're doing better.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         You know, there is such a thing as over 
                         doing it.
 
               
               Teal'c ignores them and continues to walk, though he is obviously 
               struggling.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, Teal'c, it is possible to aggravate 
                         your condition by pushing too hard.
 
                         
               
               Teal'c pushes himself toward the bar that Daniel is standing 
               next to. He appears to be turning for another pass. Daniel reaches 
               out to him and Teal'c grabs his hand.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         (glaring at Daniel) Leave me be.

               SGC - Control Room We see Siler and (I think it's Martin Wood 
               - I don't know what name he has given to Siler's sidekick) walking 
               in the background. Sam and Daniel are looking at a computer monitor.

                         Yeah, I've been over those.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Well, if I knew what you were looking 
                         for...
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         You wouldn't be doing this.

               
                                     CARTER
                         What makes you think the answer's here?
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         I just have this feeling it has something 
                         to do with an incoming wormhole. I was 
                         hoping that looking at some of this 
                         stuff might jog my memory somehow. CARTER: 
                         It must be tough.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         I think the hardest part is not knowing 
                         whether or not I...chose to be here 
                         like this. You know, whether I could...be 
                         doing more good if I was still...
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER

                                     JACKSON
                         Yeah.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Well, this should be everything you 
                         need. Good luck.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Thanks.

               
               Sam gets up and leaves Daniel to the computer.

               
               SGC - Work Out Center (Gym?) Teal'c is working on another strengthening 
               machine. Both Janet and the Therapist are with him.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Well, that's the last of the physical 
                         examination. You have just lifted, pushed 
                         and pulled more weight than anyone on 
                         this base ever has, alien technology 
                         not withstanding. Teal'c gets up and 
                         goes to another machine. Teal'c... Janet 
                         looks a little concerned. I'm clearing 
                         you for active duty.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I am not ready.

               
               COMMERCIAL BREAK

               
               Scene SGC - Control Room Daniel and Walter are still looking 
               at computer readouts when Jack walks in,
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Still nothing?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Well, I've broadened my search to any 
                         'gate activity, including outgoing wormholes 
                         and unauthorized activations. I still 
                         have no idea what I'm looking for.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Maybe if you stop thinkin' about it, 
                         it'll come to you. Daniel looks quizzically 
                         at Jack, Jack shrugs. Take a break. 
                         Fraiser says Teal'c needs a little pep 
                         talk. I've been practicing in front 
                         of a mirror for an hour.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Not peppy enough?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Not really. Daniel nods and gets up.
 
                         
               
               SGC - Infirmary We see Teal'c sitting on a bed. His back is visible. 
               There is a burn on his left lower back and there are electrodes 
               attached on either side of his spine. A technician is hooking 
               up some wires to the electrodes. Then the camera moves to the 
               front of Teal'c and we can see a burn on his lower left abdomen, 
               just below and to the left of his pouch opening. Next the camera 
               pans up to Teal'c's face. He slightly raises one brow.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Don't give me the eyebrow.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Look, Teal'c, something's bothering 
                         you. Something's been bothering you 
                         since before this injury. We're pretty 
                         sure we know what it is.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Then there is no mystery.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Yeah, but the point is you have to talk 
                         about it. Teal'c gives him a stare. 
                         Okay, you don't have to talk about it, 
                         but...you'll feel better if you do.
 
                         
               
               His expression does not change.

                         You know, forget that crap...I'm you're

                         And you must be kept informed of the 
                         fitness of all those under your command.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Frasier says you're ready for duty now. 
                         Is that true?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         (bowind his head) I have been dishonest 
                         with you.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Oh?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is unacceptable. All Jaffa children 
                         know this without being told. They are 
                         born with the knowledge. It will not 
                         be tolerated.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         What?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Kek.

               
               Jack looks to Daniel.

                         Death. Death? You mean death?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Weakness. We use one word for both, 
                         for if one is weak, one may as well 
                         be dead.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         You're talkin' about the Tretonin.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         In the beginning I believed it to be 
                         the answer of liberation for all Jaffa 
                         from the Goa'uld and the reliance on 
                         symbiotes. But as soon as I began to 
                         take it, things changed. I felt my capability 
                         was being compromised, but I said nothing, 
                         hoping the effects were only temporary 
                         and my strength would return. It did 
                         not.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Okay...

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Forgive me, O'Neill, I should have...
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         No. There's nothing to forgive. You're 
                         still...twice as strong as I'll ever 
                         be and you've got two good knees...
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Then the answer to your question is 
                         no. I do not feel that I am fit for 
                         duty.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Okay...I can accept that...for now.
 
                         
               
               Jack nods his head, indicating that Daniel should follow him. 
               They get up and walk to another part of the room, near the shelves 
               of medical supplies. Jack doesn't look very happy.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         (whispering) Yeah, you're right...not 
                         exactly peppy.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (whispering) Oh, what'd you want me 
                         to say to the guy?
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         (whispering) Well, he's lost his confidence. 
                         I think he was looking for you to re-instill 
                         some.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (whispering) Well, if he really has 
                         lost his mojo, there's nothing I can 
                         say that's gonna get it back for him.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         (whispering) It's all in his head.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (whispering) If he doesn't think he's 
                         ready, he's not ready.
 
               
               Jack walks away leaving Daniel looking back at Teal'c.

               
               SGC - Teal'c's Quarters We see many lit candles around the room.
 
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Without a symbiote, Kelnoreem is unnecessary. 
                         In fact, I have discontinued the practice. 
                         Teal'c is sitting on the floor leaning 
                         up against a piece of furniture. Daniel 
                         has just finished lighting a candle 
                         and has joined Teal'c on the floor.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Yeah, I know you don't actually need 
                         to Kelnoreem anymore, but, uh...just 
                         indulge me. See, humans sometimes meditate 
                         even thought they still require REM 
                         sleep, and I really think this thing 
                         I can't remember...
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Daniel Jackson...for a successful Kelnoreem, 
                         there is one element required above 
                         all others...
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         What?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Silence.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Right.

               Ry'ac is whipped twice by another Jaffa.

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Leave him alone.

               
               
               The flashback ends and we see Daniel's concerned face as the 
               images have been disturbing.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Ry'ac?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         (His elbow propped on his knee and his 
                         head resting on his hand) Yeah...Yeah, 
                         I saw him and Bra'tac. I think they're 
                         in danger.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Are you familiar with the ambush of 
                         Kresh'taa?
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Uh...yeah, the meeting of the Jaffa 
                         rebel tribes. I read the report. 106 
                         warriors slaughtered. Only you and Bra'tac 
                         survived. You sustained both of your 
                         lived by...passing a symbiote between 
                         the two of you.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There is something that is not in the 
                         report. As I lay near death, I began 
                         to dream. You used your abilities and 
                         appeared to me in that dream.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         I did?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Indeed. When I had sufficiently recovered, 
                         you appeared to me again. And that is 
                         when I knew. You had stayed with me 
                         and watched over me for three days. 
                         And that is the reason I am eternally 
                         grateful to you, Daniel Jackson, and 
                         why I whole- heartedly believe you concerning 
                         Ry'ac.

                                     JACKSON

                         The things I've heard sitting in this 
                         chair...
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         If this happened before you retook human 
                         form, then, whatever supply of Tretonin 
                         Bra'tac had would almost surely be depleted 
                         by now.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         That is why we must act immediately.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Daniel, you said you thought all this 
                         had to so with 'gate records. Perhaps 
                         you innately knew to look for a location?
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         I've been through those records upside 
                         down and backwards. I still haven't 
                         found anything.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Teal'c, is there anything familiar about 
                         the planet Daniel described?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There is not. General Hammond, I request 
                         that we send for Rak'nor immediately.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Do it.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Yes, Sir.

               
               Alien Planet We see the mothership in the frame that Daniel saw 
               in his vision. A glider swoops out of the ship and flies over 
               the camp that is set under the ship. There are a lot of laborer 
               Jaffa working in the camp. There are tents visible. Then we see 
               six armored Jaffa walking in formation. We hear screams in the 
               background and see the armored Jaffa treating the laborer Jaffa 
               brutally. We see the cogged wheel Daniel had seen in his vision 
               and then we see Bra'tac and Ry'ac digging away with shovels.
 
               
               
                                     RY'AC
                         You grow more and more weak each day.
 
                         
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         You worry to much for me, Ry'ac. Tend 
                         to your own labor.
 
               
               Then we see three male and one female Jaffa trying to move a 
               heavy cart. The White- Haired Jaffa (WHJ) is watching.

               Four armored Jaffa come and pull the four laborer Jaffa away 
               from the cart and escort them to another part of the camp. Ry'ac 
               and Bra'tac stop digging to watch. The four laborers are lined 
               up and the armored Jaffa (each carrying a staff) walk to stand 
               in a line in front of the laborers.

                         do not work hard enough.
 
               
                                     RY'AC
                         (whispering to Bra'tac) No rescue is 
                         forthcoming, and you're supply of Tretonin 
                         runs low...
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Ry'ac...

               
                                     WHJ
                         Kreeka! We see the four executioners 
                         lift their staffs as the four laborers 
                         await their fate.
 
               
                                     RY'AC
                         We will not be able to maintain our 
                         workload. They will execute us next.

               The staff weapons are charged, but then the laborer closest to 
               the camera makes a break for it, running in front of the White-Haired 
               Jaffa.
 
               
                                     WHJ
                         (yells something indistinguishable - 
                         perhaps a name). The Jaffa who had been 
                         ready to shoot the runner, throws his 
                         staff to the White- Haired Jaffa. WHJ 
                         shoots the runner in the back.
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Have faith. I will ration my Tretonin, 
                         until a rescue.
 
               
               The WHJ throws the staff weapon back to the guard. The other 
               three guards take their positions again.
 
               
                                     WHJ
                         Kek.

               
               Ry'ac turns away as the three are shot. Bra'tac, however, watches 
               with anger in his eyes.
 
               
                                     WHJ
                         Shaaaaal vak!

               
               The dead are left where they lay and the others get back to work 
               as the scene fades out.
 
               
               COMMERCIAL BREAK

               
               SGC - Daniel's Lab Rak'nor has joined Teal'c and Daniel in the 
               lab. They are looking at some drawings in Daniel's journal.
 
               
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Is any of this familiar to you? A planet 
                         with two moons, a naquadah refinery 
                         near some sort of anti-gravity dry-dock 
                         with a mother ship under construction?
 
                         
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         I know the planet of which you describe...Erebus.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         According to Greek mythology, Erebus 
                         is a place where condemned souls pass 
                         as soon as they die.
 
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         Then it is aptly named. The planet is 
                         used for the construction of Ha'tak 
                         vessels and the purification of the 
                         Naquadah to build them. Only Jaffa prisoner 
                         labor is used, as only they can withstand 
                         the intense heat and toxic gases of 
                         the blast furnaces fed by underground 
                         volcanic systems. Eventually, even the 
                         Jaffa succumb.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I am aware of such places, where Jaffa 
                         prisoners of war, unwilling to serve 
                         their new Goa'uld masters, are taken 
                         to be worked to death.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Which would make it the perfect place 
                         to recruit rebels, but...something must 
                         have gone wrong.
 
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         The planet was recently taken by Ba'al.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         If Bra'tac and Ry'ac were in the camp 
                         when Ba'al's forces arrived, perhaps 
                         they were trapped.
 
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         Then they are lost.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Why?

               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         The Stargate on Erebus is impenetrable.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         How so?

               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         A force field, much like your iris, 
                         blocks the Erebus Stargate, making attack 
                         or rescue through it impossible.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Someone must get through it somehow.
 
                         
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         We believe as signal must be used to 
                         power down the force field, but we have 
                         no way of knowing what that signal is.
 
                         
               
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Now! Bra'tac, Ry'ac and a couple other 
                         Jaffa storm those still standing at 
                         the Stargate. Bra'tac takes a device 
                         off the wrist of one of the still-standing 
                         Jaffa and goes to the DHD. He begins 
                         dialing out. A wormhole is established 
                         and then a force field becomes visible 
                         over the Stargate. Bra'tac aims the 
                         device from the Jaffa at the Stargate 
                         and the force field disappears.
 
               
               Suddenly, Bra'tac, Ry'ac and their colleagues are surrounded 
               by more armed Jaffa. Bra'tac pushes buttons on the devices as 
               he is led away. As they walk past the camera, the camera zooms 
               in to show a hooded figure watching from behind the action. The 
               figure is Daniel. The flashback ends.
 
               
               Daniel gets up and leaves the lab. Rak'nor looks at Teal'c, who 
               nods and then they both follow Daniel.
 
               
               SGC - Control Room Rak'nor, Teal'c and Daniel are looking over 
               Sam's shoulder as she works on a computer.

                         I was there. I saw the whole thing happen. 
                         Nothing I could do...just watch. Powerless 
                         to interfere. Come on, it has to be 
                         there.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Just give me a minute...

               
                                     JACKSON
                         See, I knew it had something to do with 
                         'gate records, I just never thought 
                         of checking the Alpha Site 'gate records...
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Here. A coded energy signal was received 
                         and recorded through the Alpha Site 
                         'gate three months ago. It was analyzed, 
                         but no one was able to determine its 
                         origin or its purpose.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         That is the force field deactivation 
                         code I saw Bra'tac send right before 
                         he was captured.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Are you sure?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         I'm sure.

               
                                     CARTER
                         I can synthesize this energy signature. 
                         If it is the deactivation code, I can 
                         get us through the 'gate.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         And I can provide details of their defenses 
                         and the lay of the land.
 
               
               SGC - 'Gate Room Teal'c and Rak'nor are in full Jaffa armor and 
               standing at the base of the ramp when the rest of SG-1 arrives.
 
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         O'Neill...I must tell you that I believe 
                         I may be a liability on this mission.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         I don't.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         If I should die, it is my wish that 
                         you watch over Ry'ac.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Well, let's see it doesn't come to that, 
                         all right?
 
               
               Teal'c nods and walks away. As he passes Daniel, Jack notices 
               the look he is getting from Daniel.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         It's his son...

               
               The wormhole is established.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right, let's do this.

               
               Rak'nor holds up a Goa'uld sonic bomb. Then we see Sam in the 
               control room standing next to Walter at the computer.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Sending signal now.

               
               She nods at Walter and walks down to the 'gate room. We see the 
               Erebus Stargate. There are five Jaffa standing at the ready since 
               the Stargate has been activated. We see the force field disappear. 
               Next, the sonic grenade comes through and detonates, knocking 
               out all the Jaffa. We hear multiple exits from the Stargate as 
               we look at one of the unconscious Jaffa. Then we see Jack's feet 
               at the head of the Jaffa. The camera pans up to show us the SGC 
               personnel.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Clear.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Okay, so, that happened. SG-3 secure 
                         these guys. Then establish a perimeter. 
                         Daniel... He motions for Daniel to lead 
                         the way as they head out.
 
               
               Meanwhile, back at the labor camp, the brutality continues. We 
               see Bra'tac standing with his back to a wall of some kind, injecting 
               Tretonin into his arm. The vial he is holding appears empty. 
               Nothing is injected. He closes his eyes, knowing he will not 
               be able to labor much longer and feeling poorly.
 
               
                                     RY'AC
                         (Whispering) Master Bra'tac, it is difficult 
                         to ration that which you do not have.
 
                         
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         If only you had not seen.

               
                                     RY'AC
                         I have seen. Now, tell me the truth. 
                         I'm not a child.
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         The Tretonin is gone.

               
                                     RY'AC
                         Then you will die and all your words 
                         of faith will have been for nothing.
 
                         
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         No, Ry'ac! Not for nothing...for you. 
                         You might survive.
 
               
                                     RY'AC
                         How long can you live without Tretonin?
 
                         
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         As long as I have to.

               
               Elsewhere on the planet, the SGC personnel are making their way 
               to the area surrounding the camp pit. They crawl on their stomachs 
               to the edge of the bluff overlooking the camp and survey the 
               area. The camp is directly below, the dry-dock is in the sky.

                         Penhall...trade. Give me that thing. 
                         Jack trades weapons with another SGC 
                         person. He give Penhall his P-90 and 
                         takes Penhall's sniper rifle. It has 
                         a stand and a high-powered scope on 
                         it. Sam is looking through binoculars 
                         beside Jack.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         No sign of Bra'tac. Wait a minute, I've 
                         got Ry'ac.
 
               
               We see, through Jack's scope, Ry'ac walking into a shelter.
 
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         If we can eliminate that guard position, 
                         we can create a blind spot.
 
               
               Jack moves the scope to the guard Teal'c refers to. Then he looks 
               a way and weighs his options.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Infiltration is the best option, O'Neill.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right, it will be dark in an hour. 
                         Everybody, get comfortable.
 
               
               After dark, fires are burning in the labor camp. The humans still 
               wait in the bluff. Suddenly, a Jaffa is zatted from behind. Sam 
               steps over the Jaffa she has just zatted and signals for Teal'c 
               to go ahead.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Go.

               
               Teal'c and Rak'nor head into the shelter they saw Ry'ac enter 
               earlier. On the bluff, Jack and Daniel are watching.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (into his comms) All right, they're 
                         in.
 
               
                                     WHJ
                         Jaffa, hol! Kal vak! Jack sees the White-Haired 
                         Jaffa walking toward the shelter, through 
                         his scope, and they are able to hear 
                         him because of the parabolic dish microphone 
                         that Daniel is holding.

                         I do the bidding of Ba'al. Shut up.

               Jack looks back through the scope in time to see the White-Haired 
               Jaffa moving on to another location.
 
               
                                     WHJ
                         Hol mel!

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Dammit!

               
                                     CARTER
                         I think they've been made.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Just hold on...

               
               The White-Haired Jaffa walks past where Teal'c and Rak'nor are 
               hiding. As soon as he starts talking to another Jaffa, they sneak 
               into the tent where they believe Ry'ac and Bra'tac are. There 
               are many laborers in the tent. Bra'tac is lying on a cot and 
               Ry'ac is at his side. He looks up as Teal'c approaches.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Ry'ac...

               
                                     RY'AC
                         Father...I am sorry. Master Bra'tac 
                         said you'd come, but I did not believe.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         How is he?

               
                                     RY'AC
                         He still lives, but...I fear, not for 
                         long.
 
               
               Teal'c places his hand on Bra'tac's chest.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Tek' matte.

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Old friend...Rak'nor.

               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         Tek' matte, Master Bra'tac.

               
               Teal'c pulls out a vial of Tretonin and holds it up to Bra'tac.
 
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There is enough for both of us.

               
               Teal'c injects Bra'tac with the Tretonin.

               
                                     RY'AC
                         We cannot hide here for long. It will 
                         take too much time for him to regain 
                         his strength to walk.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Then we will carry him.

               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         We've come to take you and Bra'tac away 
                         from this place.
 
               
                                     RY'AC
                         What about them? What about all the 
                         others?
 
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         There are too many.

               
                                     RY'AC
                         They can fight.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         And they will die.

               
                                     RY'AC
                         If they stay, they will die.

               
               Meanwhile, Jack notices a laborer approaching the White-Haired 
               Jaffa.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (into his comms) Teal'c, you've been 
                         made. Get outta there. Get out of there! 
                         Teal'c!
 
               
               Teal'c hears O'Neill's warning just in time to turn and see the 
               White-Haired Jaffa entering the tent with his guards.
 
               
                                     WHJ
                         Kree chok!

               
               COMMERCIAL BREAK

               
               Erebus Teal'c and Rak'nor are being led through the camp. Their 
               wrists are bound to bars that are resting on their shoulders.
 
               
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (into his comms as all see the duo being 
                         herded) Hold your fire, hold your fire.
 
                         
               
               Inside the tent, Bra'tac is growing stronger and Ry'ac is still 
               at his side. They hear the lashes they know Teal'c and Rak'nor 
               are receiving. After a few lashes, they begin to hear grunts 
               of pain.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Just hold your position.

               
               Sam slumps back and closes her eyes in frustration.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         We're just gonna sit here?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yes! We've just got to sit here...until 
                         we can find another way in.
 
               
               Morning light is shining through when Teal'c and Rak'nor are 
               drug into the tent and laid on the floor. Both are barely conscious. 
               Ry'ac immediately tends to his father. Teal'c coughs a few times 
               and then comes to, grabbing Ry'ac's hand.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         (wheezing and struggling to talk) Ry'ac...you 
                         are still alive?
 
               
                                     RY'AC
                         Yes, father.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         That is all that matters. What of Bra'tac?
 
                         
               
                                     RY'AC
                         The Tretonin has helped. What of you, 
                         father? Can you walk?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Not at the moment.

               
                                     RY'AC
                         You must. Those who cannot work are 
                         killed.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You must not lose your faith, Ry'ac. 
                         Rak'nor and I did not come alone. Even 
                         now, a rescue is underway.
 
               
               Sam has worked her way back up to the bluff and has joined Jack.

                         Search patrol went off in that direction,

                                     JACKSON

                         Because I should have done something 
                         when I had the chance...when I had the 
                         power.

                         I think we've already established that 
                         wouldn't have worked out either. No, 
                         it's time for plan B.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         We have a plan B?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         No...but it's time for one.

               
                                     CARTER
                         We've already determined there are too 
                         many guards for us to take out the whole 
                         camp with our current numbers.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         We need a distraction.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Grenades?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Think bigger.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Claymores?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Much bigger.

               
               Jack looks up to the mother ship in the dry-dock.

               
               Mother Ship Sam and Daniel ring into the mother ship and quickly 
               take hiding positions as a group of Jaffa march by. Then they 
               sneak down the corridor behind the Jaffa.
 
               
               Back on the planet, other SGC personnel are setting up grenade 
               launchers. Jack is still keeping an eye on the camp.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (to the Major next to him) Major, target 
                         TRP-1.
 
               
               The Major nods.

               
               Meanwhile, back in the tent, Rak'nor is nearly fully recovered. 
               Teal'c is still down.
 
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         (speaking of Bra'tac) His strength still 
                         grows.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Good...Ry'ac...you and Rak'nor must 
                         spread the word. If we wish for our 
                         rescue to be successful, the other must 
                         be prepared to fight.
 
               
                                     RY'AC
                         How will they know when?

               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         When the time is right, they will know.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Indeed.

               
                                     RY'AC
                         Can you fight?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I am...not the Jaffa I once was.

               
                                     RY'AC
                         No.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Ry'ac...

               
                                     RY'AC
                         No. You are Teal'c. There is no greater 
                         warrior...
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Ry'ac...I am...weak.

               
                                     RY'AC
                         Father, please...

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Ry'ac! No matter what...you must survive. 
                         You must survive...or I have come for 
                         nothing. No go.
 
               
               Ry'ac looks at his father, then to Bra'tac. Bra'tac nods and 
               Ry'ac leaves, though he is not happy. Bra'tac, who has been listening 
               to the entire conversation, looks after Teal'c with a concerned 
               look on his face.
 
               
               Back on the mother ship, Sam is planting C-4, while Daniel stands 
               guard.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Once this panel goes, it'll only take 
                         a few seconds for the entire anti-gravity 
                         platform to shut down. She sets the 
                         timer at five minutes and starts the 
                         clock ticking before she and Daniel 
                         run out of the room.
 
               
               Back on the planet, in the tent, Teal'c is getting stronger.
 
               
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         It has been difficult...for both of 
                         us.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You are feeling better.

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         You will not be rid of me so easily. 
                         When the time comes, I will be ready, 
                         old friend.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         As will I.

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         I am not so sure. This Tretonin seems 
                         to have had an effect on your memory.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Why would you say such a thing?

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Because you have forgotten that a warrior's 
                         true strength comes from his heart and 
                         his mind. You have had a physical advantage 
                         over me for a long time. And yet, I 
                         have never lost a sparring match to 
                         you.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Because for years, old man, I have let 
                         you win.
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         (smiles) Better...much better.

               
               Back on the ship, Sam and Daniel are making their way back to 
               the ring transporter. Just as the near it, six Jaffa guards come 
               and take up a stance surrounding the transporter.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         This could be a problem.

               
               Back on Erebus, Rak'nor and Ry'ac are circulating among the laborers, 
               spreading the word about the rescue. As Ry'ac is speaking with 
               one laborer, the White-Haired Jaffa comes up behind him.
 
               
                                     WHJ
                         This is not your work station. (Then 
                         to the Jaffa who has accompanied him) 
                         Take him.
 
               
               Ry'ac is led away by the Jaffa. Teal'c has come out of the tent 
               and has seen his son led away. Jack, too, is watching through 
               his scope.
 
               
               COMMERCIAL BREAK

               
               Erebus - Labor Camp Ry'ac has been taken to the execution spot.
 
               
               
                                     WHJ
                         If you do not work, you will die. This 
                         one does not know where is work station 
                         is. He turns to aim a staff weapon at 
                         Ry'ac.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         (coming up weakly, from behind) But 
                         he is young and still able to work. 
                         He is flanked on either side by Rak'nor 
                         and Bra'tac.
 
               
                                     WHJ
                         You dare to speak to me?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Only to ask that I take his place.
 
                         
               
                                     WHJ
                         So be it.

               
               A Jaffa comes and moves Ry'ac from where he standing. He protests.
 
               
               
                                     RY'AC
                         No! Nooo!

               
               Jack is keeping an eye on the action through the scope and is 
               getting edgy. Teal'c is thrown on the spot where Ry'ac just stood. 
               He falls to the ground, face down and then struggle to pull himself 
               up.
 
               
                                     WHJ
                         You are barely able to stand. You would 
                         not have lasted another day. It was 
                         a...good trade.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (over comms) Carter, what's the hold 
                         up?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         We're a go in 30 seconds, Sir.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Assume we do not have 30 seconds.

               
                                     WHJ
                         You were once the first prime of Apophis. 
                         Now you're nothing but a weak, pathetic 
                         sholva.
 
               
               Ry'ac turns his head away, he can't bear to watch what is happening.
 
               
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Do not look away. Be strong for him. 
                         What better way for Teal'c to die that 
                         to be looking upon the face of his son?
 
                         
               
               Back on the ship, the clock is ticking down...3, 2, 1...the C-4 
               detonates. The ship is rocked. The Jaffa surrounding the rings 
               move toward the source of the explosion. Daniel and Sam ring 
               out.
 
               
               Back on Erebus, the White-Haired Jaffa is aiming the staff at 
               Teal'c when the anti- gravity platform begins to malfunction. 
               A Jaffa horn alarm is blown. The Jaffa look to see the mother 
               ship descending to the planet.
 
               
                                     WHJ
                         Kree! Trey long tonok!

               
               Several Jaffa guards begin running up the slope toward where 
               the ship is descending. Jack gives his troops a silent signal 
               and they begin loading their grenade launchers. They fire as 
               the Jaffa start up the slope. They take out several Jaffa. More 
               grenades are launche more Jaffa are killed.
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         (yelling) Take them now!

               
               Teal'c rushes the White-Haired Jaffa, but is quickly thrown to 
               the ground. Bra'tac immediately disarms another Jaffa and dispatches 
               him. More grenades are launched. More laborers begin fighting. 
               The ship crashes on the bluff opposite the SGC personnel.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Come on, boys. Have at 'em!

               
               Jack starts taking out Jaffa with his rifle as Teal'c continues 
               to battle the White-Haired Jaffa. He is currently losing the 
               battle. Then Ry'ac comes to his aid and is cast aside by the 
               White-Haired Jaffa. The SG teams begin laying down serious weapons 
               fire. The laborers are starting to make headway. Bra'tac and 
               Rak'nor are both armed and blowing guards away, but they are 
               keeping an eye on Teal'c. Teal'c has suddenly found the strength 
               to take the White-Haired Jaffa. He doesn't like anybody who messes 
               with Ry'ac. Rak'nor is taking aim at the White-Haired Jaffa, 
               but Ry'ac stops him.
 
               
                                     RY'AC
                         Wait!

               
               Teal'c is putting a serious beating on the White-Haired Jaffa. 
               Finally, he takes the Jaffa's head in his hands and snaps his 
               neck. Ry'ac is pleased. Rak'nor grabs a staff weapon and throws 
               it to Teal'c. Jack is still sniping away at the Jaffa guards, 
               but there is a large group of them descending on Teal'c and his 
               pals. Jack can't take them out fast enough. Ry'ac sees them coming, 
               staff weapons in hand.
 
               
                                     RY'AC
                         Father!

               
               Rak'nor, Teal'c and Bra'tac line up, side by side, aim there 
               weapons and fire in unison. The screen fades to white.
 
               
               SGC - 'Gate Room Sam, Jack and Daniel come through, followed 
               by Teal'c, Rak'nor and Ry'ac. Bra'tac is already on a stretcher 
               at the base of the ramp, next to General Hammond and Janet is 
               looking at wounds on his neck.

                         Welcome back, SG-1.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         The camp has been liberated, Sir, all 
                         the prisoners relocated to the Alpha 
                         Site.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         They are anxious to join the rebellion.
 
                         
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Then my mission has been a success. 
                         Hammond, of Texas, I find myself once 
                         more in your debt.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I think it's Dr. Jackson you owe on 
                         this one.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Indeed.

               
               Teal'c nods at Daniel and Daniel nods back.

               
               SGC - Teal'c's Quarters Once again, the room is full of lit candles.
 
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Kelnoreem is unnecessary, although it 
                         does make me feel...better. Colonel 
                         O'Neill has officially informed me that...I 
                         have my...Mojo back.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         I guess I-I should be thanking you, 
                         actually. You see, I used to...I used 
                         to feel like I didn't belong...anywhere, 
                         really. I think I thought that, uh, 
                         this whole ascension thing would change 
                         that. And now I'm realizing that the 
                         sacrifices were far too great. And my 
                         life here is far too important to just 
                         leave behind. I guess what I'm trying 
                         to say is that, uh, for the first time 
                         in my life, I feel like I'm a part of 
                         something...something important.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         As do I.

               
               THE END
