SGC Alarms announcing unscheduled off-world activation are blaring
and the Stargate is dialing.
(heard over the speakers) Unscheduled
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.
It's SG-1's IDC, Sir. Hammond comes
up behind him. Receiving audio, Sir.
(over the speaker) Close quarters withdrawal!
It's gonna get ugly!
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.
(over speakers) Teal'c! Let's go! Base,
this is it! We're on our way!
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.
(running down the ramp) Teal'c's right
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.
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.
Teal'c? She leans her ear to his mouth
to hear if he is breathing. Then turns
to one of her assistants: Come on.
Start CPR. Give me one milligram Epi.
Prepare to intubate.
The scene fades out as the Assistant begins chest compressions.
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
You had us all very worried.
That was not my intention.
The staff blast hit you directly in
the symbiote pouch. If you weren't on
I would be dead. Ironic.
Well, you're not out of the woods yet.
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.
The Jaffa that wounded me...
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.
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.
Were you able to ascertain who these
Jaffa were loyal to?
The forehead tattoos were that of various
system lords, but the majority wore
the symbol of Ba'al.
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.
To level the playing field against Anubis.
So, in a way, we did it to ourselves.
Just then, Janet walks in from behind Sam and Daniel.
How is he?
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.
Can we see him?
Daniel looks at the General, who nods.
SGC - Infirmary
My son? Why do you ask?
Oh, I don't know, I just thought you'd
be sick of how you feeling again.
No, I was just thinkin' about him recently.
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
(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.
O'Neill. I believe his offering of colored
gelatin was his attempt to sympathize.
Ah, well, he's thoughtful that way.
There's no need. I blame only myself.
How is it your fault?
I fell behind. I was...
Covering us. 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.
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
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,
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
Why do you watch those movies if all
you're gonna do is cut 'em up?
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
Ever feel like you've forgotten something
C; What'd you mean?
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.
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.
Look's like you're doing better.
You know, there is such a thing as over
Teal'c ignores them and continues to walk, though he is obviously
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.
(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.
Any technical anomalies during an incoming
wormhole are noted in this box and then
cross-referenced and detailed here.
It's pretty dry. The corresponding mission
files cover any general points of interest.
Yeah, I've been over those.
Well, if I knew what you were looking
You wouldn't be doing this.
What makes you think the answer's here?
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.
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...
Well, this should be everything you
need. Good luck.
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.
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.
I am not ready.
Scene SGC - Control Room Daniel and Walter are still looking
at computer readouts when Jack walks in,
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.
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.
Not peppy enough?
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.
Don't give me the eyebrow.
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.
Then there is no mystery.
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.
Frasier says you're ready for duty now.
Is that true?
(bowind his head) I have been dishonest
It is unacceptable. All Jaffa children
know this without being told. They are
born with the knowledge. It will not
Jack looks to Daniel.
Death. Death? You mean death?
Weakness. We use one word for both,
for if one is weak, one may as well
You're talkin' about the Tretonin.
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
Forgive me, O'Neill, I should have...
No. There's nothing to forgive. You're
still...twice as strong as I'll ever
be and you've got two good knees...
Then the answer to your question is
no. I do not feel that I am fit for
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.
(whispering) Yeah, you're right...not
(whispering) Oh, what'd you want me
to say to the guy?
(whispering) Well, he's lost his confidence.
I think he was looking for you to re-instill
(whispering) Well, if he really has
lost his mojo, there's nothing I can
say that's gonna get it back for him.
(whispering) It's all in his head.
(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.
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.
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...
Daniel Jackson...for a successful Kelnoreem,
there is one element required above
Ry'ac is whipped twice by another Jaffa.
Leave him alone.
The flashback ends and we see Daniel's concerned face as the
images have been disturbing.
(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
Are you familiar with the ambush of
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.
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.
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
SGC - Briefing Room
So, you believe me too?
The things I've heard sitting in this
If this happened before you retook human
form, then, whatever supply of Tretonin
Bra'tac had would almost surely be depleted
That is why we must act immediately.
Daniel, you said you thought all this
had to so with 'gate records. Perhaps
you innately knew to look for a location?
I've been through those records upside
down and backwards. I still haven't
Teal'c, is there anything familiar about
the planet Daniel described?
There is not. General Hammond, I request
that we send for Rak'nor immediately.
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.
You grow more and more weak each day.
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.
A kek hasshak. Ya duru!
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.
If you do not work...you will die. They
do not work hard enough.
(whispering to Bra'tac) No rescue is
forthcoming, and you're supply of Tretonin
Kreeka! We see the four executioners
lift their staffs as the four laborers
await their fate.
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
(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.
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.
Ry'ac turns away as the three are shot. Bra'tac, however, watches
with anger in his eyes.
The dead are left where they lay and the others get back to work
as the scene fades out.
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.
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?
I know the planet of which you describe...Erebus.
According to Greek mythology, Erebus
is a place where condemned souls pass
as soon as they die.
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
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.
Which would make it the perfect place
to recruit rebels, but...something must
have gone wrong.
The planet was recently taken by Ba'al.
If Bra'tac and Ry'ac were in the camp
when Ba'al's forces arrived, perhaps
they were trapped.
Then they are lost.
The Stargate on Erebus is impenetrable.
A force field, much like your iris,
blocks the Erebus Stargate, making attack
or rescue through it impossible.
Someone must get through it somehow.
We believe as signal must be used to
power down the force field, but we have
no way of knowing what that signal is.
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
Just give me a minute...
See, I knew it had something to do with
'gate records, I just never thought
of checking the Alpha Site 'gate records...
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.
That is the force field deactivation
code I saw Bra'tac send right before
he was captured.
Are you sure?
I can synthesize this energy signature.
If it is the deactivation code, I can
get us through the 'gate.
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.
O'Neill...I must tell you that I believe
I may be a liability on this mission.
If I should die, it is my wish that
you watch over Ry'ac.
Well, let's see it doesn't come to that,
Teal'c nods and walks away. As he passes Daniel, Jack notices
the look he is getting from Daniel.
It's his son...
The wormhole is established.
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.
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
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.
(Whispering) Master Bra'tac, it is difficult
to ration that which you do not have.
If only you had not seen.
I have seen. Now, tell me the truth.
I'm not a child.
The Tretonin is gone.
Then you will die and all your words
of faith will have been for nothing.
No, Ry'ac! Not for nothing...for you.
You might survive.
How long can you live without Tretonin?
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
No sign of Bra'tac. Wait a minute, I've
We see, through Jack's scope, Ry'ac walking into a shelter.
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.
Infiltration is the best option, 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.
Teal'c and Rak'nor head into the shelter they saw Ry'ac enter
earlier. On the bluff, Jack and Daniel are watching.
(into his comms) All right, they're
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.
Come on, come on.
(to a Jaffa) Rin nok!
Oh, he's dressing the warrior down,
I do the bidding of Ba'al. Shut up.
Yeah, I'm paraphrasing...
Kel mar tokeem. Tel mak kree. Meg tal.
You're poisoned, you're...cursed by
the wearer of horns, you're sloppy...
Oh, for cryin' out loud.
Jack looks back through the scope in time to see the White-Haired
Jaffa moving on to another location.
I think they've been made.
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.
Father...I am sorry. Master Bra'tac
said you'd come, but I did not believe.
How is he?
He still lives, but...I fear, not for
Teal'c places his hand on Bra'tac's chest.
Tek' matte, Master Bra'tac.
Teal'c pulls out a vial of Tretonin and holds it up to Bra'tac.
There is enough for both of us.
Teal'c injects Bra'tac with the Tretonin.
We cannot hide here for long. It will
take too much time for him to regain
his strength to walk.
Then we will carry him.
We've come to take you and Bra'tac away
from this place.
What about them? What about all the
There are too many.
They can fight.
And they will die.
If they stay, they will die.
Meanwhile, Jack notices a laborer approaching the White-Haired
(into his comms) Teal'c, you've been
made. Get outta there. Get out of there!
Teal'c hears O'Neill's warning just in time to turn and see the
White-Haired Jaffa entering the tent with his guards.
Erebus Teal'c and Rak'nor are being led through the camp. Their
wrists are bound to bars that are resting on their shoulders.
(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
Just hold your position.
Sam slumps back and closes her eyes in frustration.
We're just gonna sit here?
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.
(wheezing and struggling to talk) Ry'ac...you
are still alive?
That is all that matters. What of Bra'tac?
The Tretonin has helped. What of you,
father? Can you walk?
Not at the moment.
You must. Those who cannot work are
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,
heading for the Stargate.
Ah, they don't believe Teal'c and Rak'nor
are working alone.
(visibly upset) This is my fault.
Because I should have done something
when I had the chance...when I had the
I think we've already established that
wouldn't have worked out either. No,
it's time for plan B.
We have a plan B?
No...but it's time for one.
We've already determined there are too
many guards for us to take out the whole
camp with our current numbers.
We need a distraction.
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.
(to the Major next to him) Major, target
The Major nods.
Meanwhile, back in the tent, Rak'nor is nearly fully recovered.
Teal'c is still down.
(speaking of Bra'tac) His strength still
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.
How will they know when?
When the time is right, they will know.
Can you fight?
I am...not the Jaffa I once was.
No. You are Teal'c. There is no greater
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
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.
It has been difficult...for both of
You are feeling better.
You will not be rid of me so easily.
When the time comes, I will be ready,
As will I.
I am not so sure. This Tretonin seems
to have had an effect on your memory.
Why would you say such a thing?
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
Because for years, old man, I have let
(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.
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.
This is not your work station. (Then
to the Jaffa who has accompanied 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
Erebus - Labor Camp Ry'ac has been taken to the execution spot.
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
(coming up weakly, from behind) But
he is young and still able to work.
He is flanked on either side by Rak'nor
You dare to speak to me?
Only to ask that I take his place.
So be it.
A Jaffa comes and moves Ry'ac from where he standing. He protests.
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
You are barely able to stand. You would
not have lasted another day. It was
(over comms) Carter, what's the hold
We're a go in 30 seconds, Sir.
Assume we do not have 30 seconds.
You were once the first prime of Apophis.
Now you're nothing but a weak, pathetic
Ry'ac turns his head away, he can't bear to watch what is happening.
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
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.
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.
(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.
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.
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.
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.
The camp has been liberated, Sir, all
the prisoners relocated to the Alpha
They are anxious to join the rebellion.
Then my mission has been a success.
Hammond, of Texas, I find myself once
more in your debt.
I think it's Dr. Jackson you owe on
Teal'c nods at Daniel and Daniel nods back.
SGC - Teal'c's Quarters Once again, the room is full of lit candles.
Kelnoreem is unnecessary, although it
does make me feel...better. Colonel
O'Neill has officially informed me that...I
have my...Mojo back.
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
As do I.
