Landry steps off elevator. Carter just turning corner.
*hands him file* I need you to read
Oh...Good morning to you too Colonel.
Sorry sir...how are you?
What is it?
It's a report from the Tok'ra...they've
discovered a gravitational disturbance

if the correct authorization code is

uh well...I have a theory about that

the correct code isn't received it dials
a random address and empties the buffer
into the new wormhole.

I mean...initial telemetry confirmed
that it was on the right planet?
my guess is the 584 security system

of trouble to keep people out.

a set of rings...
Wow...it's amazing what people leave

Only one way to find out...*Teal'c fiddling

Mitchell shines torch on a man, in a box much like the ancient

hits a button on the side.

him? *they walks over to Khalek.* Hello...

you understand me...?
good...try to relax...there's nothing
to be afraid of...you're safe... you're
on a planet called Earth.
I'm Lt Colonel Samantha Carter...of
the United States Air force...
Cameron Mitchell. Ditto on the other
Can you tell us your name?
it's *swallows* Khalek...
Khalek. We found you on another planet...in
stasis in what looked like some sort
of science lab...
Earth? *Lam nods*
Yeah that's right.
I want to go home...
Home? Where is home?
He took me...I was a prisoner...s'been
so long...he did experiments on me...
I never knew his name... please...I
just want to go home
Can you tell us what this guy looks
do you have the gate address for the
place you call home? The symbols to
Ok...when you're feeling better we'll
see what we can do...
Mitchell and Carter head out to hallway...
So...not an ancient.
Poor guy... this is exactly what Nirti
did...kidnapped people and then experimented
Yeah but Khalek there said he.
Well I'm sure Nirti wasn't the only
Goa'uld with an interest in evolved
That lab looked more ancient than Goa'uld...
You think it was an ancient experimenting
I don't know...but I'm sure Jackson
will get to the bottom of it.
In the mean time we'll get the address
to Khalek's Home world...and send a
MALP. Hopefully it will still be somewhere
he wants to go back to...
Jackson in the Ancient Lab...the screen has ancient text on it
but its flickering. Rings activate...
Hey what's up...?
Well...it looks like that black holes
just...a regular old black hole...no
giant Ori super gate...
Teal'c said you could use some help
Yeah there's something wrong with the
power supply...its driving me nuts...
Oh well...we'll look into it.
Colonel Mitchell says that the man we
found in stasis is not an ancient. He
was being held prisoner and being experimented
upon... we do not believe that he knew
his captor...Have you found anything
Uh...just pages and pages of logs...*flicks
page* not about the experi---*trails
off, staring, reads*
What is it?
Uh...oh...this is bad.
Teal'c and Jackson come through the Gate, walk down the Ramp
Where is he?
Isolation room one.
Why? What did you find?
I should of known when I saw the ancient
writing... he used to use it as code
on his ships...
The lab does not belong to an ancient.
It belonged to Anubis.
But he's long gone now.
Yes but the man he left behind is not
a victim of experiments...he's a genetic
hybrid...he was grown in that lab.
Whatever he told you he's lying. The
Goa'uld pass on genetic memory...now
he may not have a snake in his head
but the man we defrosted and brought
back here has Goa'uld DNA intermingled
with his own. He may as well be the...be
the Son of Anubis...
Briefing room, a monitor shows Khalek in a separate room tied
to a chair.
The log entry said Anubis managed to
replicate his pre ascension DNA using
the genetic manipulation device...then
he combined it with human DNA and was
able to rapidly grow our...our friend
The analysis I did suggests that Khalek
is significantly more evolved then we
are...much more inline with the human
form of the ancients prior to ascension...
so he could have all kinds of super
Well the subjects Nirti manipulated
demonstrated telekinetic and psychic
Like the priors? *she nods*
The Goal of the experiment seems to
be to create an advanced human...
With a little Anubis blended in...
You said he used his pre-ascended DNA.
Do you think he was doing these experiments
before he ascended?
No see that timeline doesn't track with
the log...plus it says he had to reproduce
his DNA Which means he was doing all
this after he ascended...and was sent
back by the ancients...well...half way.
But that does make any sense... even
a highly evolved human host wouldn't
be advanced as he was...why bother...?
Maybe he didn't like being stuck in
Limbo...Maybe even a small step back
to mortality was worth it to him on
Perhaps he was intending on creating
an even more powerful servant than the
No matter what Anubis' ultimate goal
was...Khalek is extremely dangerous...
Put him back in his Pod.
I doubt we'd be able to get the one
from 584 back here
If we leave him there others could circumvent
the security... and find him as we did...
We could post Guards...
What about the Antarctic pod?
*short laugh* Look I think we need to
consider whether we want to preserve
him at all
*Sighs* Lo-ook the fact is we don't
know how successful Anubis was...Khalek
is advanced...yes. But we don't know
how far along he actually is... now
if he is aware of his own state of evolutionary
advancement and I'll bet you anything
he is...its possible the only thing
keeping him from ascending right now
is that he hasn't figured out how...
What would that take?
I-I don't know...uh Buh... But if he
can do it...If-if...if he knows how
or figures out how at the very least
we're gonna have another Anubis on our
hands...and at that point it's gonna
be too late to stop him
Well he could progress his state of
being while he was is stasis...
Look you know I would never suggest
this lightly...but he is what he is.
And given the danger he poses I think
we have to ask ourselves what is the
point... in keeping him alive at all...
All stay silent contemplating what he's said,
I hear ya Dr Jackson...for the moment
we're taking every security precaution
we can... *Lam obviously not comfortable
about the idea Jackson's put forward*
I'll contact Washington...discuss how
we're going to proceed...in the mean
time...I suggest all of you learn as
much as you can...including what Khalek
does and doesn't know.
Jackson enters Observation room, sitting above Khalek who's tied
to the chair.
Khalek can you hear me?
*Wakes* yes... *notices bindings*
My name is Dr Daniel Jackson...
why have you restrained me like this?
*panicked* why is everyone suddenly
acting like they fear me?
look you can drop the act...
I don't understand...have you contacted
my home world?
we found you on your home world... I
understand ancient. Those research notes...Anubis
left...*Khalek looks really confused...*
we know that you were grown in that
lab... that you possess Anubis' DNA...
and his genetic memories...
*goes all evil eyed..., smirks* my memories
do include you Dr Jackson...a confrontation
you had with my father...I sense it
is some time since I was last awake...what
has become of him.
I'm not here to answer your questions...
the others...they wish to study me don't
they? Why else would I be here given
the danger you know I pose... they want
to learn what I am...how I came to be...
but you...have you ever taken a life
Dr Jackson? I believe you have...killed
a man...*closes eyes* my memories are
so sharp and clear... as if they happened
only moments ago... the countless live
my father extinguished...of those that
came before him and did the same...*gasps*...such
pleasure it gave them...but I have not
experienced it myself yet... does it
really feel that good? *Jackson rolls
eyes* millions of slaves bowing before
me...a galaxy of desperate pitiful life
forms at my feet...that's clearly intoxicating...
I can almost taste it as if it was me
there and not those whose memories I
possess. Oh but nothing...nothing do
I anticipate more than the sweetness
I know I will feel when I kill for the
first time. I can hardly wait to watch
as fear stops a mans heart...so much
more intimate...one on one...to watch
as the blood flows from his veins...and
savor his ever fading hope for life...
there's only one way to stop it... I
know you wish to take my life... and
I promise you...before this is over...one
of us will feel the pleasure...
Jackson grabs notes and walks off.
Woolsey walks into Landry's office, Jackson and Landry going
Mr. Woolsey...given the timing this
can't be a good sign...
The international committee overseeing
the SGC has read and considered your
recommendation to place the prisoner
back in stasis.
At least until we can decide what to
do with him...
... we think that's a mistake...
oh...you think we should kill him?
*frowns* on the contrary...we think
he must be studied...
You understand how dangerous he is...?
we understand how dangerous you seem
to think he is...there's very little
cohobating evidence at this point...that's
why more study is required...
Jackson can't believe this he turns away to lean on cabinet behind.
is this a joke? Cause if you look closely
I'm not laughing...
*bites lip* you and your people went
before the senate appropriations committee
and demanded that the budget for this
facility not be cut in half...why? Because
of a formidable new enemy that now threatens
what would we do without you?
...all we have heard...is that the Ori
must be taken more seriously than the
Goa'uld...that the priors that represent
them are extremely powerful and dangerous
in their own right... And yet in the
months since this threat emerged not
one proposed counter measure... not
one shred of technology...not even so
much as a theory or strategy to fight
these missionaries has resulted from
ongoing Stargate operations...until
now... and you want to freeze him...
*waves* go go ...you're on a roll
based on your report the only thing
we do know about this Khalek is that
physiologically he may be very much
like the priors of the Ori...an advanced
form of human...far along...in evolutionary
development...first and foremost...studying
him maybe the key to learning a way
to fight the priors...
...actually that had not escaped me...
not to mention the fact that he might
be the missing link... between ourselves
and ascension...certainly that merits
more research. The members of the committee
feel very strongly about this...
Then neither they nor you understand
Oh we do...*leans forward* the issue
is...if this command doesn't have the
ability...and security in place to take
full advantage of an opportunity like
this...then we believe we need to reevaluate
its leadership and ultimately......its
In ancient lab.
If Woolsey and the Bean counters are
gonna force us to keep Khalek conscious
maybe we better figure out what he's
capable of...and fast
it was like he was goading me into killing
him... like he wanted us to do it.
He knows he's on the path to ascension
maybe he thinks that the final step.
If that's the case, we may have no other
choice but to freeze him again.
with strict instructions never to defrost.
Indeed. Unfortunately we must now convince
others that this is the prudent course
*Albant signals to Jackson* Major Albant
seems to think he has something that'll
Yeah this unit...it seems to be self
contained...well its what analyses a
subjects current physiological status
and feeds back into the... DNA manipulator.
We should be able to bring it back and
rid it to give us a better idea how
advanced Khalek really is...
that'd be good... Nice work...
I'm gonna keep working on the translation...
Teal'c, Mitchell and Albant head to the rings. Mitchell waves.
In the Isolation room, Albant is setting up the device over Khalek's
head... Lam and Carter stand by a screen. Mitchell has a Zat
trained on Khalek who is slumped in his seat. Landry and Woolsey
are sitting in the observation room.
He's out cold Colonel. I gave him enough
sedative to keep him out for hours.
Can't be too sure.
*Fiddling* that...*turns it on, several
rays come out aimed at Khalek's head*
should be good.
The screen beside Lam and Carter comes on showing a view of his
brain. Several red spots.
We're pretty sure these red patches
indicate areas of the brain where synaptic
activity is maximized. A normal human
brain, *to Mitchell* you or I say should
show roughly 5-10% Coverage>
Me being five...you being 10. *Carter
So what's that at now? *looks at screen*
68 exactly...Daniel says that the research
theorizes that 80 possibly 90% activity
was required...for conscious willful
So he's not there yet...
Well no butó
*points* wait a minute...what's that...that
wasn't there a minute again...
No...the percentage just jumped to 71...
are you saying this guy is just evolving
before out eyes?
*beeping sound* His heart rates increasing...
I wonder if that has something to do
with the brain scan device. *moves over
to check it out.*
I'm going to administer some more sedative...
*heads over to get some*
No no no...just a second...let me just
make sure that there's no interference
with the lines here...
Khalek's eyes open, the screen beside Albant explodes. Khalek
breaks the binds as Mitchell moves to Zat him, but with Just
a swipe of his hand the Zat flies into Khalek's hand. Mitchell
dives out of the way as Khalek fires but Caret and Lam aren't
so lucky. Just as they hit the floor Mitchell fires two shots
at Khalek, hitting him. He drops.
Briefing room, on the monitor Khalek sits in chair, Mitchell
points at screen...
I shot him...Twice. At point blank range...
*rubbing neck* and he appears to be
healing. *to Landry* very quickly...
I should have emptied the clip. I don't
get it...sir. How can Woolsey not know
that keeping this guy around is a bad
He's an ass.
So what? He's risking a catastrophe
just to embarrass us?
Woolsey's a pretty straight shooter...I
think he...really believes this is gonna
be of benefit...we're the ones who have
spent the last 8 years justifying enormous
risks for the advancements we've made...
The fact is we are recording some incredible
data... Khalek's healing ability...his
advanced brain activity... That scanner
was still operating when he was using
his telekinetic ability and we've been
able to isolate the areas of the brain
that he was maximizing at the time...
See I think the point is...is that he
has telekinetic abilities and he's continuing
to evolve...while we sit around yammering
All the while he's getting closer...and
Isolating room. Khalek wakes, Woolsey and Lam are in the Observation
You should know there are now 50,000

finally. Dr Lam believes your abilities
can be controlled with a Dopamine inhibitor...a

of your skull and a massive dose will

try anything else
Thanks for the warning Richard...or
do you prefer dick? *Woolsey looks at
Lam* no...you didn't tell me your name.
Shame about Major Altman.
He's going to be fine.
Any further outbursts will not be tolerated.
Whatever you say dick.
Ancient Lab. Rings are activated, Carter appears.
Hey... I heard you guys could use some
yeah... we heard what happened. How's
Oh...he's gonna be ok...the ascendometer
say's Khalek's about 80% there. *Teal'c
and Jackson look at each other*
Mitchell......thought of it...*obviously
not to happy* after Khalek was shot
and started to head it shot up another
5% or so.
Yeah. We're helping him. The healing
process helped him to learn another
aspect of his advancement...I'll bet
anything he wanted to get shot.
*frowns* you think?
well...according to the research the
way it works is... the subject gets
the treatment in this machine...and
certain...physiological changes are
made in the brain...then it takes some
time... weeks months to adjust...the
individual needs to get used to the
changes learn how they work...it's a
gradual process... that's what the scans
are showing us. Khalek is learning to
use the advancements the latest treatment
gave him... now. Eventually with enough
physical evolution and mental control
he will reach a critical stage where
he will shed his physical body and exist
ah...I always felt there was uh...uh
spiritual component to ascension...
that you had to be a good person at
heart to so it...
Yes...certainly... when there's an ancient
helping you. Well... obviously when
the process happens naturally there
Well if you can call this naturally.
Still...the Ori proved you don't have
to be moral to ascend. Who knows...maybe
its part of the grand cosmic balance.
Good and evil have to co-exist on all
well...for now Khalek is still mortal.
I don't think he really wants to die
before he figures it all out.
he's probably been hiding the full extent
of his powers from us...for all we know
he's...he's mocking us because he knows
we can't really hurt him...
what else have you learned?
not much...I don't think this database
is going to be much help anymore...we've
been through it twice now...
well the reason I came is because I
have an idea...based on the data we've
collected from the scans on Khalek's
brain...I'm thinking we can run a simulation
on the DNA machine to see where its
really going... ...to the best of our
knowledge this has never been done before
right? Artificially advance a human
being to ascension using technology
rather than the help of another ascended
The log is incomplete... Anubis seems
to have been stopped before he could
finish his experiments...
lets see if it's really going where
we thing it is...I mean at the very
least...maybe he had a timeframe...
Landry enters Observation room.
I'm reconsidering the arrangement with
the international committee that's keeping
then I suggest you start going through
your budget...because without their
how can you still be convinced that
this is the right course of action.
the scans indicate his advancement has
plateau'd at roughly 80% of potential
That might have something to do with
the dopamine inhibitor...
how long are we going to keep this up?
until we find a way to counteract someone
with his abilities in the field...
according to your own account the man
was able to read your mind... doesn't
that concern you?
gravely. The fact that there are dozens
of priors with abilities like his roaming
the galaxy right now... also concerns
me... And the committee representing
the free nations of this planet general.
For the moment in my opinion this situation
is under control.
A close up on Khalek shows him in deep concentration with a small
I certainly hope that the point at which
you change your mind isn't too late.
The tube for the dopamine just by his neck is starting to melt.
Woolsey walks into Landry's office
you wanted to see me?
I'm pulling the plug. You can notify
the committee that the SGC no longer
requires their support.
General...Khalek's condition is stable...
you've taken ample security precautions...
every minute we have to study him...record
data... the closer we get to a means
of fighting the priors... Not to mention
the possibility of solving the mysteries
of our own existence...
the issues we face are overwhelming
at times...I can see how someone can
lose their perspective...
I haven't lost perspective General.
I recognize the importance of this research...
That's why I'm not gonna let you stand
in the way.
*stands* ultimately the decision is
mine. *walks round desk to door* I'm
having Khalek transferred back to his
stasis pod on 584 immediately... regardless
of the consequences to this command.
Thank you. *waves hand to door, Woolsey
walks out,* Putz.
yeah. According to the log
well...then this is where he should
be now on the chart *points at the bar
does that mean what I think it means?
we need to report this to Landry.
yeah......there's one more thing I think
you should do first.
Khalek sits chained to himself, waiting.
Just to give you a heads up we're gonna
keep you attached all the way home...
you try anything and you're going to
be a drooling idiot in a couple of seconds...
The corporal heads over and binds Khalek's legs, Mitchell and
an SF have their weapons trained on him. Woolsey and Landry watch
from the observation room. Alarms for offworld activation go
Rest of SG-1 return through the Gate,
We were just preparing to send Khalek
through to place him back in stasis.
Bad idea. 584 is the last place we should
be taking him right now...in fact it
was probably what he was hoping for.
*heads over to phone* This is General
Landry...Belay the order... re-secure
Khalek is standing, Mitchell motions to Khalek.
Back in the seat.
Now explain why I just did that...
The reason his advancements have plateau'd
is not because of the dopamine inhibitor...
Khalek is re-secured, he listens to what's being said in the
He's gone as far as he can... now he
may have learned to use the physical
advancement she now had...but he'll
never be able to ascend in his current
state...he needs more treatments in
that machine to make it happen...
*heads out of room to turn on the plate
beneath Khalek* Get clear! *The SFs
leave the room...and turn on force field*
The one place we can't send him to is
the lab on that planet. And I bet he's
been waiting for us to try it...
*on phone* This is Mitchell...tell General
Landry the prisoner is secure.
Khalek's eyes narrow, machine beeps as his heart rate increases,
he looks at the two SFs outside and the two are pulled in through
force shield landing on the electric plate beneath Khalek. Khalek
rips himself from the chair. Mitchell turns off the Main power...
unfortunately too late. He pulls out berretta but Khalek sends
him flying back against the wall. Knocking him out. Two SFs make
their way toward the room, but when they aim at Khalek he knocks
them both back also. Woolsey watches from the observation room
as Khalek moves his hand through the Tok'ra force shield disarming
Seems things are no longer in control
Dick. *he walks off*
Klaxons are blaring as a med team checks out the fallen men.
Jackson and Carter arrive.
Are you ok? *helps Mitchell up*
Yeah I'm fine...just help me up
No you're not...you have a concussion
you need to stay put...
Look my head can wait. We just finished
securing him... he went nuts...and killed
you think he could have heard us?
he'll go for the Gateroom. *Mitchell
starts to head off in the wrong direction.
Jackson grabs him* Gateroom.
Security teams move into place, blast doors slamming shut.
Levels 12 through 28 are now secure.
Full emergency contingent is in position
and on high alert. *flicks through security
feed of various floors*
There... *On screen Khalek strolls down
*on intercom* Target is on level 21!
Hallway B heading north
Khalek comes face to face with four armed SFs, they immediately
open fire, he raises his hands as a imaginary shield deflects
the bullets. They stops and his moves his hands forward sending
them flying back. Khalek moves his hands to some wires going
up the walls and breaks two. Everything goes down and Back up
starts to run.
Security systems down!! We've gone to
Khalek opens an elevator on level 21. down on level 24 Teal'c
and his team move to the elevator waiting. We get a shot of something
behind them. Teal'c senses it and turns in time to be knocked
into the other men. Mitchell and co turn up helping Teal'c up.
He went that way. *he points, Mitchell,
Carter and Jackson hurry off*
*on radio* medical team to level 24
They come to a open shaft.
Meet me at the gate and call this in.
Target has head down emergency exit
To SFs stand in front of the level 28 access to tube 3. The door
propels forward knocking the two over, Khalek steps out. And
six men raise their weapons aiming. He smirks
Control room, the sound of gun fire and men groaning can be heard.
With a swipe of his hand Khalek opens the blast door to the gate
room...we see the 6 men lying on the ground. Khalek shuts the
Get those doors open.
I'm trying sir...the controls are not
working... they're sealed shut.
Khalek walks over to ramp, and looks up at control room as Carter
and Jackson enter. With a nod of his head the keys on the keyboard
seem to move themselves dialing the gate.
Halt the dialing program!!
I can't sir!
Mitchell keeps trying his card, but doors won't open. The last
symbol locks and the wormhole opens.
*looking at Jackson* You should have
killed me when you had the chance. *he
heads up the ramp and steps through.
Gate shuts down.*
He's locked us out of the system
Iris control is still down too...*The
gate activates again* incoming wormhole.
Cutting auxiliary power to the blast
doors. *the blast door opens an inch,
Mitchell and some men pry it open.*
Cameron the electronic locks are down.
You should be able to pry the doors
Yeah... that's easy for you to say.
*Teal'c runs down corridor with large
crowbar* what took you so long?
*Wormhole opens.* Iris will not close!
*Khalek comes back through the gate,
obviously confused. Gate shuts down*
Mitchell squeezes through the small gap Teal'c has made, and
fires, three shots heard, at Khalek but he stops two bullets
shy of his body suspending them in the air. Khalek frowns looking
down and sees he's been shot but at a different angle. Mitchell
looks across at Jackson.
Khalek touches the blood looks up as Mitchell and Jackson take
his moment of confusion to both fire at him. They empty their
clips in to him and he drops.
*to Landry* I rigged the call forwarding
device on 584 to dial back here ...
and you didn't tell me?
we were going to sir but we didn't get
a chance...it's a good thing too or
he would have heard us.
*on intercom* medical team to level
28. Base is secured.
Jackson walks down corridor to elevator, Woolsey walks up behind
Dr Jackson. *Jackson turns to see who
but then turns back to elevator* I just...wanted
you to know...the men who died...I'm
gonna see to it personally that *Jackson
turns* their families are well taken
Look...for what it's worth...I understand
how you felt... and...why you took the
position you did.
...it almost sounds like you might find
it in yourself... to forgive me...
...no. *shakes head* that doesn't mean
we don't all want what you're looking
for...and the answers are still out
...you were right about the risks...
Doors for elevator open, Jackson steps in...
Believe me...I wish I'd been wrong.
*whispers* me too...
