Int, CASSANDRA in Sickbay, sitting in a bed. On a retractable
table in front of her sits a traveling chessboard, a little above
it floats a chess piece in mid-air, spinning top over bottom.
The girl's gaze is focused on it as DR. FRAISER enters, looking
at the chess piece in a chiding manner.
Cassandra, what are you doing?
It helps to do this.
Int, The briefing room, we see Daniel Jackson in BDUs, sitting
at the table and deeply in one of his lectures.
Hok'Taur is actually a hybrid of two
Goa'uld words, "Hok" which means advanced,
and "Taur", which, I believe, is a sort
So essentially, it's advanced human:
Such an advanced human will represent
a powerful host for the Goa'uld.
Which explains why Nirrti was performing
Int, Nirrti's fortress from "Metamorphosis". We see Jack behind
the column, aiming his rifle, firing. The bullet is stopped magically
in thin air just inches from a surprised Jaffa's face by one
of the mutated aliens. We see the bullet in the air, then the
camera refocuses and shows us O'Neill's unbelieving face as he
lowers his rifle. Nirrti gives O'Neill a condescending look,
and then we see that, at a motion of the alien's hand, the bullet
drops to the carpet. We jump in time, to see Jonas in the "DNA
machine", his face taking on a look of surprised intrigue as
he sees the projection of his DNA around him, spinning, then
zooming in on a particular section of a helix when the camera
zooms back to show the two aliens beside the machine, staring
in awe at their goddess's miraculous machine. Nirrti steps into
the picture, addressing Jonas.
Those few thousand years on another
world have changed you more than you
Another jump, and we see Nirrti close to Jonas, trying to lure
him into helping her, her face only inches from his, looking
at him, while he's turning away his head.
I could make you more powerful than
you could imagine. The powers you've
seen in Wodan and the others - only
a fraction of what I could give you.
Ext, the present, a planet with grey skies and a bright white
glaring sun, above a maze of pipes in rust-brown color, probably
a refinery or some sort of mine. Underneath a number of pipes
sticking out to the side before leading into the ground we see
a group of one or two dozen green tents.
I must apologize, Colonel. This is a
meager feast to offer visitors from
We look inside one of the tents, where O'Neill and Sam are sitting
at a table, eating sinewy and gooey meat from metal plates. O'Neill
has a determined look on his face as he battles a piece of meat,
while Sam looks like she's going to throw up any minute.
No need to apologize. It ap-- (he swallows)
--pears delicious. He and Sam exchange
We are a poor people. We are forced
to spend most of our time in the mines.
For the greater glory of Baal.
We see Teal'c and Jonas at the other side of the table, who are
less than pleased about CHAZEN's smile and his belief in these
That's interesting. Because, according
to our information, Baal abandoned this
place a hundred years ago when the Naqadah
mines ran dry.
The Naqadah is scarce and difficult
to extract, but there are still deposits.
In the background, we see Jonas fidgeting
a little, looking rather pale. Teal'c
notices and addresses him.
Are you feeling unwell, Jonas Quinn?
I'm fine, just ... uh ... it's hot.
It is true we have not seen Lord Baal
in many generations, but we continue
to pay him tribute through his emissary,
You expecting this guy anytime soon?
He will arrive in twelve days, at the
rising of the full moon. We pan across
Elori and CHAZEN, then we see Jonas,
who is noticeably flushed. He seems
to be weary, then blinks to clear his
view. A flash of light, and we see a
vague "flashback"-style sequence. We
see CHAZEN, sternly addressing Elori.
Stop talking like an old fool. It'd
be madness to defy Lord Mot! We flash
back to Jonas, who closes his eyes for
a moment, obviously trying to compose
himself, rubbing his eyes. CHAZEN doesn't
seem happy at the turn of the conversation
as Elori continues...
With each passing year, the mining grows
more difficult. Soon it may be impossible
to meet Lord Mot's demands. But we have
no choice. They are gods, after all.
Are they not?
Teal'c, and O'Neill look up at this.
Well, they have great power, that's
all we need to know.
That is true, however...
Elori! Teal'c, Sam and Jack have gained
interest, and so...
We have an ancient prophecy, that one
day strangers would come through the
Chappa'ai to slay the gods, and free
our people. Now, you have arrived. And
you also carry weapons of great power.
Stop talking like an old fool. It'd
be madness to defy Lord Mot! Jonas is
looking a little surprised at hearing
this very phrase. He gets up painfully,
turning from the table.
I need some air... Sam looks up at her
teammate, surprised. He takes a step
from the table, then slumps to the ground.
Sam immediately runs up to him, checking

INT, one of the tunnels at the SGC from what looks like the security
camera's viewpoint. A guard walks away from the camera just as
Hammond, Fraiser (with a huge folder) and Jonas head towards
us. Fraiser is flipping through X-Rays. The camera heads sideways
as they head around a corner, showing we've been looking at a
monitor in a side corridor until now. They are again heading
towards the camera. Fraiser is talking all the time.
They turn again and we find them in some part of the lab, where
Fraiser turns on one of those light-thingies at the wall and
hangs X-Rays (or should that be MRIs?) of Jonas' brain on it
(about twelve or sixteen slices of brain on each).
Preliminary tests seem to indicate that
Jonas is in perfect health. But given
his history with Naquadria research
I thought it would be prudent to do
an MRI. Now, it shows an area of unusual
brain activity right about here.

INT, briefing room. SG-1 and Hammond are debriefing, Jonas is
looking rather tired, distracted.
According to Tok'Ra intelligence, not
only did Baal abandon P4S-237 over a
hundred years ago, but to the best of
their knowledge he no longer receives
any Naquadah shipments from the planet.
So where is it going?
Well, perhaps this Lord Mot is keeping
it for himself?
What do we know about him?
He was the, uh... Canaanite god of death.
According to mythology, he was defeated
by Baal and then forced to live in the
In all likelihood, there was a power
struggle. Baal defeated Mot and forced
him into servitude.
Maybe he... doesn't wanna serve anymore...
If he is stockpiling Naquadah without
Baal's knowledge, he may well be planning
to move against him.
Sir, if we're right about this and Baal
no longer has any knowledge of what's
happening on the planet, it's possible
we could free these people. (Hammond
considers it) If the system lords think
this planet's worthless, then we wouldn't
have to worry about someone coming in
to take his place.
Did they ask for our help?
mmm.... Not exactly.
I think they were afraid to come out
and ask directly, but they did hint
that they no longer believed the Goa'uld
What do you think, Colonel?
I think we're going to need a lot more
We focus on Jonas, who is resting his head on one hand, as another
Flashback hits him. We see a look at a table in Jonas' lab, where
a notebook (one of Daniel's diaries?) is lying next to what appears
to be a sink. From Jonas' point of view, we see that he picks
up the book (he uses his left hand, where he's wearing his watch).
There appears to be a woman drawn on the page, arms raised, holding
something (an Ankh or something), owls at her feet, lots of writing.
There is a pen clipped to the book. The camera turns at...
Hey, you wanna get some lunch? It's
Mexican today. The flashback ends on
Jonas, who is in the same position as
before, while we hear...
According to Elori, Mot isn't due to

INT, Jonas is coming round a corridor, still scratching his head,
as he's been doing so often during the episode. He stops, looking
at something off-camera, brow furrowed. The camera turns to reveal
the book, lying open in a very similar fashion as in his vision.
We turn with him, at the sound of footsteps, and in comes...
Hey, you wanna get some lunch? It's
Mexican today. Jonas is visibly spooked,
staring at his teammate, the book still
in his hand. Sam lowers her head, staring
back in confusion.

around him as he turns back to the desk,

enters with a huge white sheet in front of her. Hammond puts
down his file as...

There's still nothing to suggest that
Jonas's previous exposure to Naquadria
has anything to do with this.
According to Major Carter, he claims
to be having visions.
H-hm. He's also beginning to suffer
from headaches. I know the symptoms
appear to be similar to what happened
to these scientists on Kelowna, but
there are no indications of schizophrenia.

in concentration, focusing on a couple
of air molecules inches before his nose.
Sam lowers her head, Jack looks concerned.
He raises his eyebrows as he says...
Jonas? Jonas looks around a little disorientedly,
then looks ahead again as he announces...
The Tok'ra are coming. Jack looks at
him skeptically, Teal'c raises an eyebrow
and inclines his head (wow! such emotion!),
Sam exchanges a glance with O'Neill.
(wow, this must be the most cliche moment
in SG-1 history...). Suddenly, Klaxons
go off in the background. We see Jonas,

INT, SG-1 enters the briefing room, walking past a guard at the
door. Hammond is there with a reddish-blond random Tok'ra babe
we've never seen before. She is dressed much more tasteful than
Anise, and it seems this time they actually got a Tok'Ra a jacket
to go with the Vorash bear skins.
SG-1, this is Sina, of the Tok'ra.
We have further information about the
System Lord Baal. A strange silence
emanates from our main team. O'Neill
stares in surprise, as if going to object,
mouth half-opened. Sam looks at him,
as if dreading what he's about to say.
Is there a problem?
Please. He offers her a seat as they
sit down O'Neill and Teal'c take seats
next to Sina, Hammond is to her right,
at the head of the table. Another SF
is standing in the background as if
this just cost him is washroom break.
O'Neill is looking at the Tok'ra as
if she was contagious.
Baal has suffered a recent military
defeat at the hands of Lord Yu. Anubis
is said to be very disappointed.
It's hard to believe that Yu hasn't
been destroyed yet.
Given that he is the only System Lord
still in opposition to Anubis, his persistence
You go, Yu! There is silence at O'Neill's
quip, Sam smirks a little. O'Neill rolls
his eyes in defeat. The Tok'ra is sporting
a "The Queen is not amused" look.
Baal's recent campaign was meant to
be a final crushing blow, but he allowed
Yu to escape his grasp and suffered
heavy losses in the process.
So, he screwed up and his boss is pissed
at him now, eh?
If I understand you correctly, yes.
That would be a fair assessment.
Clearly, Baal is in a vulnerable position.
This may be an ideal time for Mot to
move against him.
If he moves up to the rank of System
Lord, he won't have to keep his operation
on 237 secret anymore. He could garrison
So, if we're gonna help them, we'd better
do it soon. The Tok'ra nods in assent.
INT, Jonas lab. We see his hands as he pours aspirin from a small
plastic can. He checks out the directions on the label as Sam
enters in the background.
(Nodding painfully) ... yeah. He rubs
his forehead as Sam approaches. This
situation has clearly caught her fancy.
Jonas, none of us had ever met that
Tok'ra before. There's no way you could
have known her name.
I can't explain it. I saw her in the
briefing room, General Hammond said
her name, and then a few minutes later
it happened. Teal'c said that you've
never encountered aliens with precognitive
Yeah, we haven't.
But we have come across other psychic
Wodan was telekinetic, Eggar was telepathic.
Then there was Cassandra.
You think that Nirrti has something
to do with this.
It's very possible. She had me in that
gene spicing machine for over an hour.
What if she did something to me?
INT, Fraiser's lab. We see an MRI of Jonas' head on a display
in a side view, with a spot of the brain in front marked specially.
The camera pans to show Fraiser explaining part of it to Hammond.
It's hard to say without a biopsy, but
all of my tests seem to indicate that
the tumor is not made up of cancer cells.
Then what is it?
I'm not sure. But I do know that it's
grown by over 50 per cent since the
last test. I've never seen anything
What can we do?
I recommend immediate surgery. If we
don't get it out of him soon, the intra-cranial
pressure is going to kill him. Hammond
looks less than happy, and we get a
slightly too loud strings solo.
EXT, Cheyenne Mountain, two guards with rifles on their backs
are approaching the entrance, to the right of it we see a truck
and a humvee.
INT, briefing room. There seems to be a security station with
a guard and lots of monitors in the back. Fraiser, Hammond and
SG-1 are present. Hammond sits opposite her, Jonas is sitting
to her left, to his left is Sam.
I've called in a neuro-surgeon. Her
name is Sandy van Densen. She's the
best there is.
I'm not completely convinced that surgery
is the right way to deal with this.
Jonas, it's going to kill you.
You don't know that. We don't even know
what it is!
Jonas and I have been discussing the
possibility that this has something
to do with Nirrti. That it's another
step towards the creation of Hok'tar.
So you think this is the result of genetic

is somehow giving him pre-cognitive

But that doesn't change the fact that

I want you to take the rest of SG-1
and SG-15 back to the planet for a full
tactical assessment. If there's a real
chance we can free these people from
the Goa'uld, I wanna know about it.
Dismissed. They get up and leave.
INT, Sickbay, Fraiser is checking blood pressure etc. on Jonas,
who is sitting on a bed in sickbay. One male and two female nurses
are also present.
Blood pressure's a little high. (she
takes off the blood pressure measuring
"bandage") How are the headaches?
Jonas, why are you doing this?
Even limited precognitive abilities
would be invaluable to our work.
Hm. You still think you have to keep
proving yourself, don't you? You know,
you might want to consider the possibility
that you're valuable enough already.
(he pauses, nods not very convincingly,
Fraiser turns to the nurse) Let's run
Yes, Doctor. Jonas is sitting there,
staring vacantly ahead again. Fraiser
notices, looks at him in concern. He
doesn't notice her.
Jonas? We get another flashback as Jonas'
eyes widen: One of the SGC corridors.
Fraiser is running towards a stretcher,
another male nurse is with her. A male
and a female nurse are hurrying the
stretcher around the corner in a hurry.
How's she doing?
Respirations are shallow. Pulse is weak.
We see that it is Major Carter on the
stretcher. She appears to have a burnt
wound at her shoulder. We zoom back
to see we've been watching over Jonas'
Sam, can you hear me? Sam?
I've lost the pulse.
She's in V-fib! (Janet thumps Sam on
the chest.) Anything?
Charge to two hundred.
Clear! We see Jonas watching the scene
with frightened calmness, then the flashback
ends and we find ourselves in...
INT, Sickbay, Jonas is still sitting on the bed as sirens go
off in the background. He snaps out of it and looks around, realizing
SG-1 are about to depart. He practically flies out of sickbay.
INT, Gateroom. The Stargate swooshes to life, and we turn to
see Teal'c, Jack and Sam heading up the ramp, more SG-personnel
behind them. They are almost at the top, when we hear...
Colonel! Colonel! (He has reached them)
You have to scrub the mission.
Major Carter gets hurt, I saw it.
(up in the control room, via PA) Colonel
O'Neill, what the hell is going on down
INT, Briefing room, Hammond is standing at the window, looking
down at the gate, where two SG-teamers are standing, waiting
for the gate to be reactivated. Pacing to and fro behind him
It was a medical emergency. Major Carter
was being rushed to the infirmary with
what appeared to be a staff blast wound.
According to the villagers, we will
not encounter any Jaffa for many days.
Well, maybe they're wrong, or maybe
they lied, we can't know for sure.
Well that's just it, Jonas, there's
no way we can know. Maybe it's not even
supposed to happen on this mission,
it could be weeks from now.
I don't think I can see that far ahead.
The point is we can't start second-guessing
every decision. It's a calculated risk
every time we step through that gate.
I agree Major. However, until I have
a better understanding of what's going
on, I'd prefer to err on the side of
Was ... anybody else hurt on this ...
I only saw Major Carter.
Well, then she can sit this one out
... just ... to be on the safe side.
Agreed. But Colonel, be careful.
... Yes, Sir.
FX, We're traveling through the Stargate wormhole tunnel, screeching
sound and all, to exit in a bright light and we're...
EXT, on the planet again. Same refinery, same green tents, same
sun. The camera changes and we get a look out of one of the tents
at Teal'c and O'Neill standing next to something looking like
a rusty petrol barrel. Jack is using his radio, slowly stepping
back into the tent while doing so.
Major Pierce, report!
We swept the whole building, Sir. There's
no sign of any Jaffa activity.
As I said, Lord Mot will not arrive
for many days.
(to the radio) All right, stay sharp.
Have you decided to help us?
Are you sure this is what you want?
It is as the prophecy foretold.
No, screw the prophecy! I need to know
your people are willing to follow through
Last winter, there was a terrible sickness
in the village. Many could not work.
When Lord Mot arrived and there was
not enough Naquadah, we tried to explain.
We begged his forgiveness, but he would
not listen. He took ten of the sickest,
including my daughter's husband, and
executed them in front of the whole
village. We would do anything to be
free of this burden. Jack looks seriously.
That was convincing.
EXT, the tent, CHAZEN is standing in the entrance, looking very
suspicious. Then he turns and heads for the bushes. We see him
heading into a more secluded area of the forest, where he pulls
out a small silver ball, a Goa'uld communications device, probably.
He holds it in his hand with a determined look on his face.
EXT, Cheyenne Mountain, we look from the hill down at the entrance,
where two guards are walking forth and back.
INT, Jonas' lab. Jonas picks up a book on precognition. He is
in pain. There is sweat visible on his brow. He tries to concentrate
on the book, but rubs at his eyes and gives up on the book. He
stands, with difficulty, putting his hand out to a nearby shelf
to steady himself. An alarm claxon starts blaring.
VOICE ON PA
"We have a medical emergency on level

Jonas leaves his lab and we see him get out of an elevator on
level 25. A medic is hurrying down the corridor in front of him.
"What happened?" He catches up with
Siler who is walking to the infirmary.
"Ah, we were doing an overhaul of the
'gate generators and there was a power
spike. The capacitor blew."
"Anybody else hurt?"
"Major Carter." Jonas stops and slowly
turns to see the scene he had seen in
his vision play out before him. Fraiser:
"How's she doing?"
"Respirations are shallow. Pulse is
weak." We see that it is Major Carter
on the stretcher. She appears to have
a burnt wound at her shoulder. We zoom
back to see we've been watching over
"Sam, can you hear me? Sam?"
"I've lost the pulse."
"She's in V-fib!" (Janet thumps Sam
on the chest.) "Anything?"
"Charge to two hundred."
"Clear." Janet zaps Sam with the defibrillator
"What've we got?"
"Pulse is back, regular sinus."
"Okay. Let's get them both into the
infirmary. Let's move." Jonas watches
as Siler follows Sam, Janet and the
other medical personnel into the elevator.
SGC - INFIRMARY WE SEE A NURSE CHECKING UP ON SAM WHO IS SITTING
UP ON AN INFIRMARY BED. SHE IS CONNECTED TO I.V.S AND MONITORS.
THE NURSE LEAVES.
"Thanks." Just then Jonas walks up and
leans on a table holding one of the
computer monitors next to Sam's bed.
"How you feeling?" Sam: "Slightly overcooked.
Janet says I'll be fine." She pats the
bed next to her, indicating that he
should have a seat.
"Sam, I'm sorry." Jonas sits on the
bed next to Sam.
"If I had just kept my mouth shut, you
would have gone on the mission. None
of this would have happened."
"I envisioned it exactly the way it
happened, but I didn't understand it.
I misinterpreted the vision. I won't
make that same mistake again."
"Don't do this to yourself."
"I've been thinking about this a lot.
Now, I've always been hyper-observant.
I see details that other people miss.
I see patterns. Maybe predicting the
future is just an extension of that
"It doesn't work that way. According
to Newtonian physics, yes...if you could
know the position and velocity of every
particle in the universe at any given
moment, you could accurately predict
all of their interactions for the rest
"So then, the future is predetermined.
It's just a matter of having enough
information to figure it out."
"Yes, but quantum mechanics blows that
out of the water. According to the Heisenberg
uncertainty principle, it is impossible
to look at a sub-atomic particle and
know both where it is and where it's
going at the same time. The more accurately
you fix its position, the more uncertain
you make its velocity and vice versa.
The best we can do is calculate probabilities."
"Okay, so then, I'm seeing probable

bad is going to happen." Lord Mot enters
and addresses Jack.
"You are the Tau'ri of Stargate Command."
"And you are Lord Mot, come to punish
us for our insolence, et cetera, yadda,
"That is correct."
"Yeah. Well, Mr. Mot, we're onto you.
We know what you've got planned and
we've informed the Tok'ra. If we don't

rat you out. They're gonna tell your
boss. They'll snitch on ya."
"You intend to send a warning to Baal."
"I think that's what I said, isn't it?"
(Teal'c nods, smiling) "I said that."
"I think this is unlikely. You would
not be here if you did not wish to protect
the people of this planet. If Baal discovers
the mines are still active, he will
return. There will be no message."
"Baal is in the service of Anubis. If
you kill him, you will have to answer
"You may be of some assistance in that
"It is well known among the system lords
that an iris protects your 'gate. Obviously,
you must transmit some kind of code
before you return to your planet. I
suspect you use one of these..." (Mot
holds up a GDO - Jack looks decidedly
more serious and Teal'c's smile dissipates)
"You will tell me the code and I will
use it to destroy Stargate Command.
Anubis will congratulate me on my initiative."
"We will tell you nothing."
"Not at first. But eventually. However,
for the moment, I must deal with these
villagers. I cannot let their treachery
"They had nothing to do with this."
"My spy tells me otherwise. Of course,
I could be convinced to spare them some
discomfort..." (Mot smiles and then
chuckles) "Uhn, very well, then. I'll
leave you to think about it." Mot leaves.
Teal'c and Jack share a sideways glance.
SGC - INFIRMARY JONAS IS WAKING UP ON AN INFIRMARY BED.
"What am I doing here?"
"You had a seizure. We can't wait any
longer, Jonas. If this tumor gets much
bigger, we may not be able to remove
"What is it?"
"Sir, we're receiving an I.D.C. It's
"Open the iris."
"Yes, sir." The iris opens. Davis and
Hammond wait...nothing happens,
"SG-15, this is Hammond. Come in. Repeat,
this is General Hammond, please respond."
A staff blast comes through the 'gate, narrowly missing Hammond,
but knocking him down and showering him with shards of glass
as the control room window shatters. Then a Goa'uld sonic grenade
rolls onto the ramp and detonates in a brilliant flash of white.
All the SGC 'gate room guards are rendered unconscious. Next,
Jaffa come through the 'gate, staff weapons blasting away as
new personnel come into the 'gate room, guns firing.
Hammond pulls himself off the floor, and he is nicked all over
his face and arms. He sees David lying unconscious on the floor.
More Jaffa come through. The fire fight continues in the 'gate
room. Both sides have casualties, but then another Jaffa comes
through with a giant ball. He opens it and activates it as more
SGC personnel are taken out. The Jaffa are winning. Hammond is
crawling forward and manages to activate the hand scanner, closing
the iris. He looks up in time to see his personnel down several
of the Jaffa just before the ball device detonates.
The vision ends and we are looking at Jonas in the infirmary
"I need to talk to General Hammond."
(Janet looks at him, puzzled.) "Now!"
SGC - INFIRMARY HAMMOND, SAM AND JANET ARE STANDING NEAR JONAS'
"By the time you closed the iris, it
was too late. They set off some kind
of...bomb that destroyed the entire
'gate room, maybe even the whole mountain."
"You sure it was SG-15's iris code?"
"Sir, we have to warn them."
"Yeah, but maybe sending a message is
what causes this to happen."
"Like when you tried to warn Major Carter
about her injury."
"Jonas, we've been over this. The future
isn't predetermined. Now in the absence
of any other information, the best we
can do is follow normal procedure."
"Yeah, but if I didn't have this vision,
we wouldn't be having this conversation.
We're already beyond normal procedure."
"What do you suggest?"
"We need more information. We need to
know how the Jaffa get the iris code.
Maybe I can find that out."
"I thought you said you couldn't control
"I haven't been trying hard enough..."
"No. Jonas, if we don't get you into
surgery right now, you could die."
"I need just a little more time..."
P4S-237 - THE CELL ELORI'S DAUGHTER, NATANIA, WALKS INTO THE
"PRISON" CARRYING A TRAY OF LIQUID REFRESHMENT FOR THE JAFFA.
THE JAFFA IMMEDIATELY TAKE CONTAINERS OFF THE TRAY AND BEGIN
"Excuse me, miss. How about sending
a little of that our way..." His last
word trails off as he sees the looks
she has thrown at him. Just then, the
first Jaffa to drink collapses into
the second Jaffa which sends him backward
into the bars. Jack and Teal'c act quickly
to restrain the Jaffa and then he, too,
"...or not." (Natania takes the keys
off the Jaffa and begins opening the
cell) "Wow, what'd you put in that?"
"Kelmina root. They will sleep for many
hours." (She opens the door to the cell
and Jack and all the SG personnel walk
out.) "I was able to retrieve this."
(She hands a GDO to Pierce as he walks
past her.) "Chazen has the rest of your
belonging. I dared not take more."
"Where's your father?"
"He is being held in the village. Lord
Mot intends to make an example of him."
"All right, we can help him, but we
have to get to the 'gate to get some
"How do we get out?"
They all follow Natania.
SGC - INFIRMARY JONAS HAS LIT SEVERAL CANDLES. HE BLOWS OUT THE
"You think that'll help?"
"It works for Teal'c." He starts swaying.
"I'm okay." He is able to regain his
balance. He takes a cross-legged seat
on the end of the infirmary bed. He
frowns again as he begins to have another
We see the SGC personnel walking through a grassy field. Back
to Jonas, who is trying to concentrate. He sees the Stargate
on P4S-237. Then he sees Jack walk up to the DHD as Pierce starts
dialing Earth. Back to Jonas, who has another go at it. He sees
Jack standing at he DHD as the 'gate activates and Pierce sends
SG-15's code with the GDO.
"We're good to go." Then Pierce is shot
from behind with a staff blast and Jack
takes cover as a firefight ensues. Both
sides are taking losses. Then Jack and
Teal'c both notice that Pierce is alive.
Teal'c moves to him to try and drag
him out of the line of fire as Jack
covers him with Zat fire. Teal'c is
hit from behind by a staff blast, knocking
him to his knees.
"Teal'c!" Teal'c looks up at him, gets
a determined look on his face and tries
to move forward. He is hit twice more
from behind and the look on his face
changes to one of shock. Then he falls
forward, face first. Jack is momentarily
stunned. Then he looks around and sees
Jaffa everywhere. He continues to fire,
valiantly, but he is greatly outnumbered
and being shot at from all directions.
We see Jonas again, sweating, pale and
nearly unconscious. He starts to get
off the bed.
"I need to get to the control room."
"What? Jonas!" (He collapses and she
struggles to keep him from hitting the
ground). "I need some help in here!"
(Several other medical personnel help
her lift him onto a bed). "Get him on
the bed. We gotta get him into surgery.
Grab the gurney. Easy. Jonas? Jonas..."
(She shines a pen light in his eyes,
but he is no longer responsive and blood
is coming out his nose again.) "Jonas,
can you hear me?"
P4S-237 - NATANIA IS LEADING THE SGC PERSONNEL THROUGH THE FOREST.
"This path will take you to the Chappa'ai."
(Jack motions for the others to continue
down the path.) "Colonel, I fear Mot
will execute my father. There is not
(places a hand on her shoulder): "Just
stay out of sight until we get back."
He leaves her standing there to join his team.
SGC - CORRIDOR WE SEE JONAS BEING WHEELED DOWN THE CORRIDOR ON
A GURNEY. HE REGAINS CONSCIOUSNESS AS HE GOES.
"Not yet..." Sam comes up and joins
"We can't wait any longer."
"Sam...Sam..." (He motions with his
hand. She takes a hold of it and leans
closer to him.) "I saw it. I know what's
SGC - CONTROL ROOM SAM ENTERS AS HAMMOND IS TALKING TO ANOTHER
"Sir, they're walking into an ambush.
According to Jonas, the Jaffa will be
waiting for them at the 'gate. We have
to warn them."
The 'gate begins spinning.
SCC - OR JONAS IS ON THE TABLE, STILL SOMEWHAT CONSCIOUS, BUT
LOOKING VERY BAD.
"We're ready, doctor." (She approaches
the bed with Jonas on it and puts her
hand on his shoulder.) "It's okay, just
"It's okay, Jonas."
"What's goin' on?"
"It's okay." (then to a nurse) "Get
the Lorazepam." (Jonas tries to say
something else as he is convulsing,
but Janet reassures him) "It's okay,
Jonas, it's not your problem any more."
P4S-237 - A TENT WE SEE CHAZEN HOLDING A P-90 WHEN HE HEARS HAMMOND'S
VOICE OVER ONE OF THE RADIOS.
"Colonel O'Neill...this is Hammond,
please respond." (Chazen begins walking
toward the radio) "Major Pierce? Do
you read me?" (then, as Chazen picks
up the radio) "Jonas believes there
may be a Jaffa presence awaiting your
arrival at the Stargate. Exercise extreme
caution when approaching the 'gate."
We're now back in the control room. Sam looks at General Hammond,
then back at the 'gate.
"I repeat, exercise extreme caution
when approaching the 'gate. Jonas believes
you may be walking into an ambush. Do
Back on P4S-237, Chazen puts the radio down.
"Sendear..." (He calls a man behind
him who comes immediately to him.) "Check
on the prisoners."
"Colonel O'Neill, do you copy? Major
Pierce, do you read me?"
Back in the control room...
"They could be out of range, sir."
"Or maybe they received the message,
but they can't respond."
"What about the MALP?"
We see the computer monitor displaying the NO SIGNAL message.
"We're not receiving anything, sir."
"Sir, SG-3 is prepped and ready to go..."
"I just can't risk it, Major. I could
be sending them into an ambush. We're
just going to have to hope Colonel O'Neill
gets the message." Sam nods, but looks
none to pleased.
P4S-237 - THE FIELD NEAR THE STARGATE
We see the SGC personnel walking through the grass, just as Jonas
did in his vision. Then we see Sendear return to Chazen.
"The prisoners have escaped."
"Sound the alarm."
We see the P4S-237 Stargate activate, just as we did in Jonas'
vision. Then we hear an alarm sound and we see Jaffa moving into
position near the 'gate. Jack sees them too and he aims just
over Pierce, who ducks.
A firefight ensues. Jack once again takes cover behind the DHD,
Teal'c behind the MALP. Then we see Mot walking into the tent
where Chazen has been.
"Who gave the order to sound the alarm?"
"I did. The prisoners have escaped."
"Idiot. I allowed that foolish girl
to help them. My Jaffa are waiting at
"Oh, I could not have known. Y-you must
"You are mistaken." Mot begins using
his hand device on Chazen, but then
he is shot by Natania. She is using
one of the SGC pistols. She shoots again
and we hear Mot fall.
"Isn't that unusual?"
"Given that the tissue isn't malignant,
"We didn't see any evidence of it on
the MRI. This must be a recent formation."
"We've got reticular infiltrates. This
could get a little tricky."
P4S-237 - THE STARGATE THE FIREFIGHT CONTINUES. THE SGC PERSONNEL
ARE HOLDING THEIR OWN.
SGC - OR JONAS' SURGERY CONTINUES.
"Blood pressure's dropping. Heart rate
is 120 and climbing."
"I need more suction. I don't see it."
"Blood pressure's 80 on 60. Heart rate's
"We've gotta find the bleeder. He's
"Run a liter of saline and have dopamine
"Get a unit of O-neg."
"Pressure's 60 on 40."
"Doctor, we're losing him."
"Hold on. I see it. Retract this flap.
I think I've got it."
"Pressure's coming up. Heart rate's
"Okay, let's get this thing out of him."
SGC - CORRIDOR OUTSIDE THE 'GATE ROOM WE SEE MULTIPLE TROOPS
WITH DEFENSIVE GEAR HEADING TO THE 'GATE ROOM. THERE ARE A LOT
MORE PERSONNEL THAN JONAS SAW IN HIS VISION. THE 'GATE IS ACTIVE
BUT THE IRIS IS STILL CLOSED. WE SEE SAM (WHO STILL HAS HER ARM
IN A SLING) AND HAMMOND IN THE CONTROL ROOM. SHE LOOKS AT HIM.
HE LOOKS AT HER. THEN WE SEE DAVIS, SHAKING HIS HEAD.
"Still no signal, sir." More shots of
those preparing for what ever comes
through the 'gate.
"Sir, we're receiving an IDC. It's SG-15."
"SG-15...this is Hammond. Come in. Repeat,
this is General Hammond, please respond."
"Sir, if we don't open the iris and
it really is Colonel O'Neill, Teal'c
and SG-15, then..."
"...the second they step through that
puddle, they'll be killed. I'm aware
of that. Open the iris."
The iris opens and all is tense for those at the SGC. Then Jack,
Teal'c and the others step through the iris.
"We've got a wounded man here." Hammond
and Sam rush down to the 'gate room.
Medical personnel beat them to the ramp
and take the wounded man away.
"Clear the ramp."
"Colonel, it's good to see you."
"General, request permission to return
to the planet with SGs 3 and 10. We
have some unfinished business."
"Permission granted." Jack and Teal'c
then look around at all the personnel
and weapons in the 'gate room.
"Expecting someone else, sir?"
"We'll explain later."
Jack looks around again and follows the others out of the room.
SGC - INFIRMARY SOME TIME HAS PASSED. JONAS IS SITTING IN A BED,
A CLOTH COVERING HID HEAD, READING A BOOK. THE REST OF SG-1 COME
"Hey! I thought you were supposed to
be resting that brain."
"How you doing?"
"I'm a little sick of staring at these
walls all the time, but other than that,
I'm fine. Dr. Fraiser thinks they got
it all out."
"I read the post-op analysis. It said
the tumor was similar to ordinary human
brain tissue, but that the neurons were
five times more densely packed."
"Well, Nirrti definitely had to have
had something to do with this. I mean,
this kind of thing just doesn't happen
"Are you still having visions, Jonas
"Not since the surgery, no."
" 'Fraid not."
"No trip to Vegas, just you and me?"
(Then he looks right at Sam.)
"Ah...so how's it going on 237?"
"They are planning a large celebration
in our honor."
"They want to thank us for helping them
get rid of Mot."
"We're bringing the food this time."
"That's a good idea." Just then, Janet
"All right. Visiting hours are over.
Jonas, you need your rest."
"Well...get well soon. We need you out
"Yes, Sir." Teal'c bows and takes his
leave behind O'Neill. Sam hangs back
for a minute. Janet follows Teal'c.
"Is he feeling all right?"
"I knew he'd warm up to you eventually."
"You know, it is interesting. We changed
the way things played out, which would
seem to indicate that the future isn't
predetermined. But by doing so, we fulfilled
an ancient prophecy. A thousand years
ago, someone in that village predicted
that this would happen. How do you explain
"Maybe it was just a lucky guess."
Jonas smiles and nods.
