                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 621

                                       "PROPHECY"

                                           By

                             Joseph Mallozzi & Paul Mullie




               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.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Cassandra, what are you doing?

               
                                     CASSANDRA
                         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.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Hok'Taur is actually a hybrid of two 
                         Goa'uld words, "Hok" which means advanced, 
                         and "Taur", which, I believe, is a sort 
                         of slang...
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         For ...?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Human.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         So essentially, it's advanced human: 
                         "Hok Tauri"
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Such an advanced human will represent 
                         a powerful host for the Goa'uld.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Which explains why Nirrti was performing 
                         the experiments.
 
               
               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.
 
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         Those few thousand years on another 
                         world have changed you more than you 
                         know...
 
               
               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.
 
               
                                     NIRRTI
                         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.
 
               
                                     ELORI
                         I must apologize, Colonel. This is a 
                         meager feast to offer visitors from 
                         another world.
 
               
               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.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         No need to apologize. It ap-- (he swallows) 
                         --pears delicious. He and Sam exchange 
                         pleading looks.
 
               
                                     ELORI
                         We are a poor people. We are forced 
                         to spend most of our time in the mines.
 
                         
               
                                     CHAZEN
                         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 
               words.
 
               
                                     ELORI
                         Of course.

               
                                     SAM
                         That's interesting. Because, according 
                         to our information, Baal abandoned this 
                         place a hundred years ago when the Naqadah 
                         mines ran dry.
 
               
                                     ELORI
                         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.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Are you feeling unwell, Jonas Quinn?
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         I'm fine, just ... uh ... it's hot. 
                         Carter reacts.
 
               
                                     CHAZEN
                         It is true we have not seen Lord Baal 
                         in many generations, but we continue 
                         to pay him tribute through his emissary, 
                         Lord Mot.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         You expecting this guy anytime soon?
 
                         
               
                                     ELORI
                         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.
 
                         
               
                                     CHAZEN
                         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...
 
               
                                     ELORI
                         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.

               
                                     CHAZEN
                         Well, they have great power, that's 
                         all we need to know.
 
               
                                     ELORI
                         That is true, however...

               
                                     CHAZEN
                         Elori! Teal'c, Sam and Jack have gained 
                         interest, and so...
 
               
                                     JACK
                         However... what?

               
                                     ELORI
                         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.
 
                         
               
                                     CHAZEN
                         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.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Jonas?

               
                                     JONAS
                         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 
                         his temperature...
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Jonas!

               
               BLACK OUT and...

               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).
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         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.

                         Any explanation?

                         No sir. In fact I don't even know if 
                         this has anything to do with what happened 
                         on the planet.

                         chances. I've scheduled a series of 
                         follow-up exams.

                         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.

                         He was the, uh... Canaanite god of death. 
                         According to mythology, he was defeated 
                         by Baal and then forced to live in the 
                         underworld.

                         In all likelihood, there was a power 
                         struggle. Baal defeated Mot and forced 
                         him into servitude.

                         If he is stockpiling Naquadah without 
                         Baal's knowledge, he may well be planning 
                         to move against him.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         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.

                         I think they were afraid to come out 
                         and ask directly, but they did hint 
                         that they no longer believed the Goa'uld 
                         were gods.

                         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...
 
               
               
                                     SAM
                         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...
 
               
                                     SAM
                         According to Elori, Mot isn't due to 
                         return for another twelve days, that 
                         gives us plenty of time.

                         I'll contact the Pentagon. He gets up, 
                         and we see Jonas, still perplexed by 
                         his vision.
 
               
               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...

                         Mexican today. Jonas is visibly spooked, 
                         staring at his teammate, the book still 
                         in his hand. Sam lowers her head, staring 
                         back in confusion.

                         What are you talking about? She walks 
                         around him as he turns back to the desk, 
                         him looking at the book, her at the 
                         table.

                         was like a vision ... He flaps the book 
                         shut, holding it closed with both hands

                         of it at the time, but now it's happened 
                         twice. Sam reacts, looking concerned.

                         Sir? We just completed a second MRI. 
                         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.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         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. 
                         There is, however, a small spot on this 
                         MRI that has me worried. She hands him 
                         the sheet.

                         I'm not sure, but it could be a tumor.

                                     JONAS
                         What? You guys didn't believe me when 
                         I saw those alien creatures. They turned 
                         out to be real. They exchange a pointed 
                         look.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         So... you're seeing things before they 
                         happen?
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         ... That's right.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Like ... what's for lunch? Sam shoots 
                         him a LOOK, sighs soundlessly. O'Neill 
                         reacts. Jonas begins looking a little 
                         dizzy again, blinking more often. He 
                         sits down as he answers...
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         No, I can't control it, they're just 
                         ... flashes.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         We have encountered many strange Phenomena, 
                         Jonas Quinn, but ... we have yet to 
                         meet anyone that can see the future.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         It ... goes against all the laws of 
                         physics as we understand it. Have you 
                         had any more? Jonas is staring ahead 
                         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...
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Jonas? Jonas looks around a little disorientedly, 
                         then looks ahead again as he announces...
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         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, 
                         Teal'c and Sam glancing at the P.A. 
                         somewhere above as O'Neill is wearing 
                         his "I'm not going to admit that I'm 
                         wrong"-look.
 
               
                                     P.A.
                         Unscheduled off-world activation.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Her name is Sina. We end on a shot at 
                         Jonas as he rubs his forehead and announces 
                         this.
 
               
               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.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         SG-1, this is Sina, of the Tok'ra.
 
                         
               
                                     SINA
                         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.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Is there a problem?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         No Sir.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         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.
 
               
                                     SINA
                         Baal has suffered a recent military 
                         defeat at the hands of Lord Yu. Anubis 
                         is said to be very disappointed.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         It's hard to believe that Yu hasn't 
                         been destroyed yet.
 
               
                                     SINA
                         Given that he is the only System Lord 
                         still in opposition to Anubis, his persistence 
                         is remarkable.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         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.
 
                         
               
                                     SINA
                         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.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         So, he screwed up and his boss is pissed 
                         at him now, eh?
 
               
                                     SINA
                         If I understand you correctly, yes. 
                         That would be a fair assessment.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Clearly, Baal is in a vulnerable position. 
                         This may be an ideal time for Mot to 
                         move against him.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         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 
                         the planet.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         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.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Another headache?

               
                                     JONAS
                         (Nodding painfully) ... yeah. He rubs 
                         his forehead as Sam approaches. This 
                         situation has clearly caught her fancy.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Jonas, none of us had ever met that 
                         Tok'ra before. There's no way you could 
                         have known her name.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         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 
                         abilities, right?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah, we haven't.

               
                                     JONAS
                         But we have come across other psychic 
                         powers.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         On P3X-367.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Wodan was telekinetic, Eggar was telepathic. 
                         Then there was Cassandra.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         You think that Nirrti has something 
                         to do with this.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         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.
 
               
               
                                     FRAISER
                         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.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Then what is it?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         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 
                         like it.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What can we do?

               
                                     FRAISER
                         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.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         I've called in a neuro-surgeon. Her 
                         name is Sandy van Densen. She's the 
                         best there is.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         I'm not completely convinced that surgery 
                         is the right way to deal with this.
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Jonas, it's going to kill you.

               
                                     JONAS
                         You don't know that. We don't even know 
                         what it is!
 
               
                                     SAM
                         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.
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         So you think this is the result of genetic 
                         manipulation?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Jonas thinks the new tissue in his brain 
                         is somehow giving him pre-cognitive 
                         abilities.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Well, for all I know you may be right. 
                         But that doesn't change the fact that 
                         if this tumor continues to grow at its 
                         current rate, it is still going to kill 
                         you.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         It may stabilize.

               
                                     JACK
                         Nirrti never did anything to anyone 
                         that didn't turn out badly.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Colonel, you of all people should realize 
                         what an advantage this could be. Imagine 
                         if we could know in advance when and 
                         where the next Goa'uld attack would 
                         come from.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You have yet to provide such valuable 
                         information.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         All I'm saying is just give me some 
                         more time. At least ... forty-eight 
                         hours.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Make it twenty-four, and you remain 
                         on-base for observation.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         What about the mission?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         You're going to sit this one out. Colonel, 
                         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.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Yes, Sir.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         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.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Blood pressure's a little high. (she 
                         takes off the blood pressure measuring 
                         "bandage") How are the headaches?
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         Not good.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Jonas, why are you doing this?

               
                                     JONAS
                         Even limited precognitive abilities 
                         would be invaluable to our work.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         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 
                         another EEG.
 
               
                                     FEMALE NURSE
                         Yes, Doctor. Jonas is sitting there, 
                         staring vacantly ahead again. Fraiser 
                         notices, looks at him in concern. He 
                         doesn't notice her.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         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.
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         How's she doing?

               
                                     FEMALE NURSE
                         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' 
                         shoulder.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Sam, can you hear me? Sam?

               
                                     FEMALE NURSE
                         I've lost the pulse.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         She's in V-fib! (Janet thumps Sam on 
                         the chest.) Anything?
 
               
                                     FEMALE NURSE
                         Nothing.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         Charge to two hundred.

               
                                     FEMALE NURSE
                         Charging.

               
                                     FRAISER
                         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.
 
               
               
                                     FRAISER
                         Jonas!

               
               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...
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Colonel! Colonel! (He has reached them) 
                         You have to scrub the mission.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Why?

               
                                     JONAS
                         Major Carter gets hurt, I saw it.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         (up in the control room, via PA) Colonel 
                         O'Neill, what the hell is going on down 
                         there?
 
               
               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 
               is...
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         It was a medical emergency. Major Carter 
                         was being rushed to the infirmary with 
                         what appeared to be a staff blast wound.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         According to the villagers, we will 
                         not encounter any Jaffa for many days.
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         Well, maybe they're wrong, or maybe 
                         they lied, we can't know for sure.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         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.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         I don't think I can see that far ahead.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         The point is we can't start second-guessing 
                         every decision. It's a calculated risk 
                         every time we step through that gate.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I agree Major. However, until I have 
                         a better understanding of what's going 
                         on, I'd prefer to err on the side of 
                         caution.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Was ... anybody else hurt on this ... 
                         thing?
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         I only saw Major Carter.

               
                                     JACK
                         Well, then she can sit this one out 
                         ... just ... to be on the safe side.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Agreed. But Colonel, be careful.

               
                                     JACK
                         ... 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.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Major Pierce, report!

               
                                     PIERCE
                         We swept the whole building, Sir. There's 
                         no sign of any Jaffa activity.
 
               
                                     ELORI
                         As I said, Lord Mot will not arrive 
                         for many days.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (to the radio) All right, stay sharp.

                                     O'NEILL
                         Are you sure this is what you want?

                         It is as the prophecy foretold.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         No, screw the prophecy! I need to know 
                         your people are willing to follow through 
                         on this.

                         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.

               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.

                         "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 
                         Jonas' shoulder.

                         on the chest.) "Anything?"

                         "Clear." Janet zaps Sam with the defibrillator 
                         paddles.

                         "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.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         "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.

                         would have gone on the mission. None

                         "I envisioned it exactly the way it

                         I misinterpreted the vision. I won't

                         I see details that other people miss. 
                         I see patterns. Maybe predicting the

                         hand to reveal a Goa'uld sonic grenade. 
                         It detonates in a brilliant flash of 
                         white.

                         drops down to feel for a pulse. We see 
                         Jonas lying on his side, his eyes open, 
                         but not really seeing anything and his

                         "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 
               again.

               "PRISON" CARRYING A TRAY OF LIQUID REFRESHMENT FOR THE JAFFA. 
               THE JAFFA IMMEDIATELY TAKE CONTAINERS OFF THE TRAY AND BEGIN 
               DRINKING.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         "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, 
                         collapses.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         "...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."

                         "He is being held in the village. Lord

                         have to get to the 'gate to get some 
                         reinforcements here."
 
               
                                     NATANIA
                         "I understand."

               
                                     JACK
                         "How do we get out?"

               
                                     NATANIA
                         "This way."

                         "Boys..."

               
               They all follow Natania.

               
               SGC - INFIRMARY JONAS HAS LIT SEVERAL CANDLES. HE BLOWS OUT THE 
               MATCH.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         "You think that'll help?"

               
                                     JONAS
                         "It works for Teal'c." He starts swaying.
 
                         
               
                                     FRAISER
                         "Jonas...?"

               
                                     JONAS
                         "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 
                         vision:
 
               
               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.
 
               
                                     PIERCE
                         "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.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         "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.

                         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?"

                         (Jack motions for the others to continue 
                         down the path.) "Colonel, I fear Mot 
                         will execute my father. There is not 
                         much time."

               He leaves her standing there to join his team.

                         hand. She takes a hold of it and leans 
                         closer to him.) "I saw it. I know what's

                         you read me?" (then, as Chazen picks 
                         up the radio) "Jonas believes there 
                         may be a Jaffa presence awaiting your

               We see the computer monitor displaying the NO SIGNAL message.

                         be sending them into an ambush. We're 
                         just going to have to hope Colonel O'Neill 
                         gets the message." Sam nods, but looks

               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.
 
               
                                     SENDEAR
                         "The prisoners have escaped."

               
                                     CHAZEN
                         "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.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         "Pierce..."

               
               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.
 
               
                                     MOT
                         "Who gave the order to sound the alarm?"

                                     MOT
                         "Idiot. I allowed that foolish girl 
                         to help them. My Jaffa are waiting at 
                         the 'gate."
 
               
                                     CHAZEN
                         "Oh, I could not have known. Y-you must 
                         forgive me."
 
               
                                     MOT
                         "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.

               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.

               The iris opens and all is tense for those at the SGC. Then Jack,

                         Medical personnel beat them to the ramp 
                         and take the wounded man away.

                         then look around at all the personnel 
                         and weapons in the 'gate room.

                         "We're bringing the food this time."
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         "That's a good idea." Just then, Janet 
                         walks in.
 
               
                                     FRAISER
                         "All right. Visiting hours are over. 
                         Jonas, you need your rest."
 
               
                                     JACK
                         "Well...get well soon. We need you out 
                         there."
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         "Yes, Sir." Teal'c bows and takes his 
                         leave behind O'Neill. Sam hangs back 
                         for a minute. Janet follows Teal'c.
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         "Is he feeling all right?"

               
                                     SAM
                         "I knew he'd warm up to you eventually."
 
                         
               
                                     JONAS
                         "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 
                         that?"
 
               
                                     SAM
                         "Maybe it was just a lucky guess."
 
                         
               
               Jonas smiles and nods.

               
               THE END
