               GOA’ULD SPACE STATION (last seen in “Summit” and “Last Stand”). 
               A female Goa’uld stands in the conference room addressing Lord 
               Yu and two other male System Lords. Oshu, Yu’s First Prime, stands 
               at Yu’s side.
 
                                     GOA’ULD
                         The System Lords are no longer. You 
                         have become a meaningless coalition 
                         that cannot resist the power of my master, 
                         Lord Ba’al.
 
               (Yu whispers to Oshu, who then delivers Yu’s message.)

                                     OSHU
                         Your master has no honour. The System 
                         Lords have not weakened in their resolve.
 
                         
                                     GOA’ULD
                         The Jaffa are weak-willed and fallible. 
                         Is it any wonder they’ve begun to doubt 
                         their faith in the gods? So many Goa’uld 
                         have fallen.
 
                                     OSHU
                         Ba’al was wise to send a representative.
 
                         
                                     YU
                         I would have killed him with my own 
                         hands!
 
                                     GOA’ULD
                         Despite your ill will, Lord Ba’al wishes 
                         to extend a most generous offer. In 
                         exchange for your surrender, Ba’al will 
                         allow you to keep your armies and continue 
                         to administrate your territories under 
                         his authority. You will be permitted 
                         to live, so long as you bow before him 
                         as the supreme commander of the entire 
                         Goa’uld domain. (Yu looks furious at 
                         this offer.) Refusal to accept the terms 
                         of this offer will result in the resumption 
                         of hostilities, and ultimately your 
                         death. (A Jaffa hurries in and stands 
                         by the female Goa’uld’s side, waiting 
                         to give her a message. She leans towards 
                         him and he whispers in her ear.) Bring 
                         her.
 
                                     YU
                         What is the meaning of this?

                                     GOA’ULD
                         I should ask you the same thing.

               (Two super-soldiers escort Sam Carter into the room. She is wearing 
               a jacket - rather more ornate than the usual Air Force jackets 
               - with SGC patches on the sleeves.)
 
                                     GOA’ULD
                         Major Samantha Carter.

                                     CARTER
                         Actually, I’m a colonel now.

               (The super-soldiers push her to her knees.)

                                     GOA’ULD
                         Her cargo ship was intercepted by my 
                         sentries when it violated the proximity 
                         zone around this station. (She looks 
                         at Yu.) I am well aware of your past 
                         relationship with SG-1 and the Tau’ri. 
                         Would you have me believe that her sudden 
                         appearance here is nothing more than 
                         mere coincidence?
 
               (Yu gets to his feet and approaches Sam.)

                                     YU
                         What are you doing here?

               (With no warning, Sam plunges a sword through Yu’s chest. As 
               he collapses to the ground, the others stare in disbelief. Sam 
               gets to her feet and we see that the sword is growing straight 
               out of her arm. She’s the RepliCarter. Yu’s blood covers the 
               sword. She walks towards the female Goa’uld.)
 
               (Outside the space station, the Replicator ship is approaching.)
 
               
               
               SPACE. A Goa’uld mothership is in orbit around a planet. Inside 
               the ship, Bra’tac is on the pel’tak. Teal’c, Sam and Daniel come 
               to join him.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         They are late.

                                     DANIEL
                         Or they’re not coming.

                                     TEAL’C
                         Were that the case, Rak’nor would have 
                         sent word.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         If he were able to do so.

                                     CARTER
                         Maybe we should reconsider the mission.
 
                         
                                     TEAL’C
                         This is not an SGC mission. Reconsidering 
                         is not an option.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Look, I know the timing of these first 
                         few surprise attacks is crucial, but 
                         ...
 
                                     CARTER
                         ... and we’re just here as observers, 
                         but right now I’m observing the fact 
                         that if you take on one of Amateratsu’s 
                         motherships without proper backup, you 
                         could get yourself killed.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Us observers too!

                                     BRA’TAC
                         Many such attacks have been co-ordinated 
                         simultaneously across the galaxy - each 
                         one designed to create a strategic weakness 
                         in the forces of the System Lords.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         And if even one fails ... I know!

                                     TEAL’C
                         The rebel Jaffa have gone to great lengths 
                         to acquire the security codes currently 
                         being used by the System Lords. If all 
                         goes according to plan, they will believe 
                         we are allies and lower the shields.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         If all goes according to plan.

                                     TEAL’C
                         Once the shields are lowered, the Jaffa 
                         contingent aboard this vessel should 
                         be sufficient to overwhelm any initial 
                         resistance we may encounter.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         We have allies within the ranks of Amateratsu’s 
                         Jaffa who will also help facilitate 
                         our attacks. Once the others witness 
                         the death of their false god, they will 
                         realise the truth and join our ranks.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         Isn’t the fact that we haven’t heard 
                         from Rak’nor kind of a bad sign?
 
               (Bra’tac and Teal’c look at each other. At that moment read-outs 
               appear superimposed over the viewscreen and beeping can be heard.)
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What is it?

                                     BRA’TAC
                         Ship’s sensors have detected a vessel 
                         closing in on our position. (The read-out 
                         changes to show the ship.) Ha’tak class.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         Rak’nor?

                                     TEAL’C
                         Unlikely. Rak’nor would have hailed 
                         long before his approach.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Then it has to be Amateratsu. Shouldn’t 
                         we get outta here?
 
               (Bra’tac and Teal’c look at each other again. Clearly they are 
               reluctant to retreat.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Teal’c, the odds are not in our favour.
 
                         
                                     TEAL’C
                         They never are, Daniel Jackson.

               (Daniel shrugs in agreement. Outside the ship, the ha’tak gets 
               closer.)
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         I am hailing them and transmitting the 
                         security codes. (After a moment, the 
                         ship jolts.) They have fired on us. 
                         (The ship jolts again.) Shield strength 
                         is down sixty percent.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         How is that possible?

                                     CARTER
                         What the hell did they hit us with?
 
                         
               (Teal’c goes to the weapons console.)

                                     TEAL’C
                         Returning fire. (He fires on the ha’tak, 
                         but it is undamaged.) Our weapons are 
                         ineffective.
 
               (The ship jolts again.)

                                     BRA’TAC
                         We have lost shields.

                                     CARTER
                         Now can we get out of here?

                                     BRA’TAC
                         Navigational controls are not responding. 
                         We must evacuate.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Glider bay?

                                     TEAL’C
                         We can use the rings to transport to 
                         the planet below and escape through 
                         the Stargate.
 
               (They head off towards the ring room. As they’re walking along 
               a corridor, Teal’c hears something and raises his hand to stop 
               the others.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         What is it?

               (Up ahead of them, a door opens and a lot of Replicator bugs 
               come scampering through.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         That’s not good.

                                     TEAL’C
                         This way.

               (He leads them off in another direction. The Replicators follow. 
               Sam and Daniel stop to fire at them but their bullets have no 
               effect. We see a Replicator’s eye view of Daniel. The view homes 
               in on him, and then an Asgard-type transporter beam whisks him 
               away.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Daniel!

                                     TEAL’C
                         Colonel Carter. (He, Sam and Bra’tac 
                         hurry away.)
 
               
               SGC. GATEROOM. Jacob Carter comes through the Stargate. As he 
               walks down the ramp, Jack comes into the Gateroom with his arms 
               wide.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Jacob!

                                     JACOB
                         Jack, we got a problem. We need to talk.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         Hi! Hello! How are ya?! Long time no 
                         see! What’s doin’?! What’s up?! Hey, 
                         buddy!
 
                                     JACOB
                         I’m sorry, Jack. It’s good to see you 
                         again. Congratulations on your promotion. 
                         (He offers Jack his hand.)
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Thanks!

                                     JACOB
                         You deserve it.

                                     O’NEILL
                         Yes, well. What’s up?

                                     JACOB
                         The Replicators - they’ve launched an 
                         all-out attack on the Goa’uld. If the 
                         Goa’uld can’t find a way to stop them, 
                         the Replicators will easily overrun 
                         our galaxy in a matter of weeks.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Why didn’t you say so?

               (Jacob tilts his head in an “I think I just did!” kind of way, 
               then turns and walks out of the Gateroom. Jack hurries along 
               behind him.)
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         I’m sorry. You said we had a “problem”, 
                         not a big galactic emergency!
 
               
               SGC. LAB. Jacob is working at a console while Jack stands nearby, 
               playing with a device that Jacob must have given him to hold. 
               An SGC technician brings something over to Jacob.
 
                                     JACOB
                         Our operatives have spent the past several 
                         years tagging as many Goa’uld ships 
                         as possible in an effort to track their 
                         movements. Today we have beacons on 
                         more than a hundred motherships transmitting 
                         their location via subspace to an encoded 
                         Tok’Ra network.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         And this?

                                     JACOB
                         It’s a receiver that will allow me to 
                         tap into the subspace network. We can 
                         keep tabs on Ba’al’s fleet, see how 
                         their battle with the Replicators is 
                         faring; we can also get up to the minute 
                         Tok’Ra intelligence reports from our 
                         agents in the field.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         You know, we could have used something 
                         like this a long time ago.
 
                                     JACOB
                         The High Council never thought they 
                         could trust you with it.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         What changed their mind?

                                     JACOB
                         Nothing. They don’t know I took it.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         Ah!

               (Jacob attaches a lead to the receiver.)

                                     JACOB
                         My relationship with the Council’s still 
                         a little strained.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         It’s not gonna get any better if you 
                         keep stealing stuff. (Jacob looks at 
                         him. Jack puts a hand on his shoulder.) 
                         No complaints! I’ll take anything I 
                         can get: weapons, receivers, silverware 
                         ...
 
               (Jacob finishes linking the receiver in with the SGC computers. 
               A star map comes up on a screen on the wall showing many red 
               dots.)
 
                                     JACOB
                         Each dot represents a Goa’uld ship.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         That’s a lot of dots.

                                     JACOB
                         That’s just one small quadrant of the 
                         galaxy. (He types.) Watch.
 
               (The map zooms out, then homes in on another area. Again, the 
               Goa’uld ships are marked by red dots. As they watch, one of the 
               dots flashes for a couple of seconds, then goes out. The message 
               “lost signal” appears next to where the dot was. Immediately, 
               a second dot flashes and then goes out, replaced with the message 
               “lost signal”.)
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         What just happened?

                                     JACOB
                         The beacons stopped transmitting their 
                         signals, likely meaning those ships 
                         were either destroyed or taken over 
                         by the Replicators. (On the screen, 
                         another ship’s beacon is lost.) Battles 
                         like the ones you just witnessed are 
                         taking place across the galaxy. Several 
                         Goa’uld territories are now entirely 
                         in Replicator hands. (Another ship disappears 
                         off the screen.) As I said, given the 
                         progress of these battles, the Goa’uld 
                         will be wiped out in a matter of weeks. 
                         (Another ship disappears.)
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Y’know, I have to admit, I have some 
                         mixed feelings about this.
 
                                     JACOB
                         Well, we all wanna see the Goa’uld’s 
                         stranglehold on the galaxy broken, (another 
                         ship disappears) but not if they’re 
                         just gonna be replaced by something 
                         worse.
 
               (Alarms sound.)

                         Hey, kid. (He kisses her as she reaches 
                         the bottom of the ramp.)
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         So ... what the heck happened? Didn’t 
                         you guys have a ship? (The Gate closes 
                         down.) And by the way, where’s Daniel?
 
                         
                                     BRA’TAC

                                     JACOB
                         Just Daniel?

                                     CARTER
                         There’s only one reason I can think 
                         of: my duplicate. She knows the greatest 
                         threat the Replicators have ever known 
                         is the disrupter technology that you 
                         built (looking at Jack) using Ancient 
                         knowledge.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         So? She’s immune to that now.

                                     CARTER
                         Yes, but Replicators always seek out 
                         the most advanced technology. She may 
                         be worried that there’s other Ancient 
                         technology out there that could be a 
                         threat to her and the rest of the Replicators.
 
                         
                                     TEAL’C
                         Daniel Jackson had access to the knowledge 
                         of the Ancients when he was ascended.
 
                         
                                     JACOB
                         I thought he didn’t retain those memories?
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         We don’t know that for sure. Daniel 
                         has remembered certain things from when 
                         he was ascended. She may think that 
                         everything she needs to know about the 
                         Ancients is buried in his subconscious. 
                         If it is, she’ll find it.

               LATER. BRIEFING ROOM.

                                     JACOB
                         The Tok’Ra have operatives in Ba’al’s 
                         inner circle, including one of his high-ranking 
                         lieutenants. According to the latest 
                         intelligence, the ranks of the Jaffa 
                         rebellion are re-pledging their loyalty 
                         to the Goa’uld by the thousands.
 
                                     CARTER
                         But the Goa’uld are losing the war.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         Yeah. You’d think that’d make ‘em look 
                         weaker.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         The Jaffa have never seen the likes 
                         of such creatures. Many could see these 
                         Replicators as a plague, an evil punishment 
                         brought upon all for daring to stray 
                         in their beliefs and betray their gods.
 
                         
                                     TEAL’C
                         This situation has dealt the Jaffa rebellion 
                         a serious blow. Even if we were to somehow 
                         defeat the Replicators, the Goa’uld 
                         would undoubtedly take credit, thereby 
                         solidifying Jaffa loyalty as well as 
                         their belief in the Goa’uld as gods.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         I think the key phrase in there was 
                         “somehow defeat the Replicators”.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         We haven’t had much luck, sir. The inert 
                         Replicator cells left behind by my duplicate 
                         haven’t given us any clues as to how 
                         to fight the immunity she’s developed. 
                         As far as I know, Thor hasn’t made much 
                         progress in modifying the disrupter 
                         technology either.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Well, let him know what’s goin’ on ... 
                         (he stands up and starts to walk towards 
                         his office) ... and don’t be afraid 
                         to remind him that we’ve saved his cute 
                         little grey bum several times.

                         Years of effort, all but undone in a 
                         matter of days. It will now be almost 
                         impossible to turn so many of our brothers 
                         back to our cause. (He turns to face 
                         Teal’c, who does not look so concerned.)

                                     BRA’TAC
                         Even if we can, I wonder: will it make 
                         a difference? These machines are unlike 
                         anything I have seen.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         We must proceed in the belief that Colonel 
                         Carter and Thor will devise a means 
                         to destroy the Replicators.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         How then can we prevent the Goa’uld 
                         from taking credit and solidifying their 
                         position as gods in the eyes of all 
                         Jaffa?
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         We must act now, before this conflict 
                         is resolved; win back the hearts and 
                         minds of those who waver before they 
                         are lost to us. We must once and for 
                         all destroy the Goa’uld image as gods 
                         forever.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         How?

                                     TEAL’C
                         By capturing the temple at Dakara. (Bra’tac 
                         stares at him in amazement.) Everything 
                         we have fought for hangs in the balance.
 
                         
                                     BRA’TAC
                         Yes. But Dakara?!

                                     TEAL’C
                         Capture it, and never again will a Jaffa 
                         worship a false god.
 
               
               JACK’S OFFICE. Jack is sitting at his desk. Sam comes to the 
               door.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Sir. (She walks into the room.) I’m 
                         sorry to bother you but ...
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         I’m only gonna say this once, Carter: 
                         what happened to Daniel was not your 
                         fault.
 
                                     CARTER
                         She knows he may hold key Ancient knowledge 
                         because of me. She’s out there because 
                         of me. I basically gave her the means 
                         to counter the only effective weapon 
                         we have against her.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         I also gave you permission to work with 
                         her. It’s not gonna change anything. 
                         (Sam looks down. Jack looks at her for 
                         a moment.) Unless you’re suggesting 
                         we use that time machine to go back 
                         and fix it?
 
                                     CARTER
                         No, sir. We all agreed we would never 
                         do that. I mean, for all we know, it 
                         could just make things worse.
 
               (Walter taps on the door.)

                         Sir, we’re receiving a message from 
                         Thor. He said he’s ready to trans...
 
                         
               (An Asgard transporter beam envelops Sam and whisks her away.)
 
               
                                     O’NEILL
                         You were saying?

                                     HARRIMAN
                         Never mind. (He turns and walks away.)

                                     THOR
                         Hello again, Samantha Carter.

                                     CARTER
                         Hi, Thor.

                                     THOR
                         I have already transported your research 
                         and the remains of the human form Replicator 
                         to this lab. We may continue our work 
                         from here.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Any progress on your end?

                                     THOR
                         I have yet to isolate the cipher the 
                         human form Replicator introduced to 
                         render the disrupter weapon ineffective.
 
                         
               (Sam is standing in front of a small table which has the remains 
               of the RepliCarter’s arm on it.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         Well, given the situation, I think it’s 
                         time to take more drastic steps.
 
                                     THOR
                         You are suggesting we attempt to trigger 
                         a subspace connection between the remains 
                         of the arm and the rest of the Replicators 
                         so that we may search for the cipher 
                         among their communications data.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Too wild and crazy?

                                     THOR
                         In order to do that, we must reactivate 
                         the cells.
 
                                     CARTER
                         I know.

               (Thor activates his console, and a beam starts to play over the 
               Replicator cells.)
 
               
               SGC. JACK’S OFFICE. Teal’c and Bra’tac have come in to talk to 
               Jack.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         What makes this place so special?

                                     TEAL’C
                         The temple at Dakara is sacred to all 
                         Jaffa.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         It is rich in historical significance. 
                         Legend tells it is the place where Anubis 
                         rose from the dead.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         It is also the site of the first prim’ta 
                         ritual.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         It is that rite of passage that has 
                         bonded us in servitude ever since. For 
                         thousands of years, the Jaffa have viewed 
                         Dakara as the holiest of sites - the 
                         very cradle of our existence. It is 
                         the place where the Goa’uld first gave 
                         Jaffa their strength and longevity.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         And you really think this place is gonna 
                         make a difference?
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         Seizing control of the temple there 
                         would prove beyond a shadow of a doubt 
                         the Goa’uld do not possess the power 
                         of the gods.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         Even the most stubborn Jaffa would have 
                         to question his loyalty to the Goa’uld.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         There has to be a catch, or you guys 
                         would have done this a long time ago.
 
                         
                                     BRA’TAC
                         Dakara is deep within Ba’al’s territory 
                         and under normal circumstances it is 
                         heavily guarded. However, with Ba’al’s 
                         forces deployed throughout the galaxy 
                         battling the Replicators, the temple 
                         is more vulnerable now than it has ever 
                         been.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         Still, our success depends on the element 
                         of surprise and the use of the entire 
                         rebel fleet.
 
               (Jack shakes his head doubtfully.)

                                     BRA’TAC
                         Listen to me, O’Neill. This war must 
                         be fought on two fronts. We will reignite 
                         the uprising and conquer our oppressors 
                         while you find the means to stop these 
                         Replicators. (Jack still looks doubtful. 
                         Bra’tac leans forward to make his point.) 
                         Let us each fight the enemy we know 
                         best.
 
               
               SPACE. REPLICATOR SHIP. Daniel, disarmed, is wandering around 
               a room lined with Replicator blocks. After a while, the RepliCarter 
               appears.
 
                                     REPLICARTER
                         Hello, Daniel.

                                     DANIEL
                         What the hell do you want?

                                     REPLICARTER
                         You have information that I need. (She 
                         starts to walk towards him.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         OK, what do you want to know?

                                     REPLICARTER
                         I’m afraid it’s not that simple.

               (She continues to walk towards him. He starts to back away from 
               her.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         No, no, it is that simple ... (He reaches 
                         the wall and flattens himself against 
                         it as the RepliCarter gets closer) ... 
                         although, if it’s all the same with 
                         you, I’d rather not do the hand in the 
                         head thing, so, uh ... (She looks at 
                         him.) Honestly, I’ll tell you whatever 
                         you wanna know.
 
                                     REPLICARTER
                         Honesty is not the problem.

               (Some of the Replicator blocks in the wall reach out and clamp 
               around Daniel’s wrists. More blocks imprison his ankles.)
 
                                     REPLICARTER
                         Unfortunately, to get what I need, we’re 
                         going to have to dig a little deeper.
 
                         
               (More blocks come out of the wall around Daniel’s head, holding 
               it fixed in one position.)
 
                                     REPLICARTER
                         Shall we begin?

               
               CHULAK. In a tent outside the town, Teal’c and Bra’tac are meeting 
               with a group of rebel Jaffa, including Aron, last seen in “Sacrifices”.
 
               
                                     ARON
                         What you’re proposing is madness. Dakara 
                         cannot be taken.
 
               (Teal’c walks towards Aron angrily. Bra’tac holds up a fist against 
               Teal’c’s chest to prevent him from getting any closer, then turns 
               to another Jaffa.)
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         Tolok - you have not spoken.

                                     TOLOK
                         Aron is right. We would be sacrificing 
                         countless men and ships on a fruitless 
                         mission. We should be concentrating 
                         on the greater threat, the Replicators, 
                         before they destroy us all.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         Jaffa - hear me. I have engaged the 
                         Replicators in battle many times. Believe 
                         me when I say they cannot be defeated 
                         by conventional means.
 
                                     ARON
                         You have faced them in the past and 
                         won.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         Indeed, yet never in such numbers. Those 
                         of you who choose to engage the Replicators 
                         in battle will not survive.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         Teal’c is right. We must fight only 
                         those battles we know we can win.
 
                         
                                     TOLOK
                         Yet you propose an equally impossible 
                         task.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         With Ba’al otherwise occupied, now is 
                         the time to strike.
 
                                     TOLOK
                         No free Jaffa has ever set foot in the 
                         temple and lived.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         Then that is precisely why we must go 
                         there. If we succeed, many will rejoin 
                         our cause.
 
                                     ARON
                         If we succeed.

                                     TEAL’C
                         Were the circumstances different, I 
                         may feel the same as you, brother, but 
                         the situation has changed. We must act 
                         now, or our children will know no future, 
                         let alone the taste of freedom.
 
                                     TOLOK
                         Teal’c, I believe there is wisdom in 
                         these words. However, you are aware 
                         that if we fail, it would effectively 
                         mean the end of the rebellion. Are you 
                         prepared to risk our entire cause on 
                         this one action?
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         Indeed I am.

                                     BRA’TAC
                         So - what say you?

               (Tolok thinks about it for a moment, then raises his head.)
 
               
                                     TOLOK
                         I say we take Dakara!

                                     ARON
                         So be it.

               
               SGC. LAB. On the screen monitoring the Goa’uld/Replicator battle, 
               another Goa’uld ship’s signal flickers and disappears. Jacob 
               is again sitting at the computer while Jack stands next to him.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Five more regions belonging to Ba’al 
                         have fallen in the past twenty-four 
                         hours.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         He’s not putting up much of a fight, 
                         is he?
 
                                     JACOB
                         No, he’s making a typical Goa’uld mistake. 
                         He’s defending territory at the expense 
                         of resources. (He sighs.) We can send 
                         him a message through the undercover 
                         Tok’Ra in his midst. We could suggest 
                         a change in strategy.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Like what?

                                     JACOB
                         Typically, the Replicators are patient 
                         and slow-moving when not being engaged. 
                         If Ba’al stops aggressively fighting 
                         them and pulls back, it may give Sam 
                         more time to come up with the solution.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         Forget that!

               (Jacob gestures at the screen as another red dot flashes and 
               goes out.)
 
                                     JACOB
                         Look - there goes another one. (He turns 
                         to Jack, then stands up to face him.) 
                         Jack - he’s thinking like a System Lord 
                         defending himself against another Goa’uld. 
                         He doesn’t know what he’s dealing with.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         And if he retreats, where d’you think 
                         he’s gonna fall back to?
 
                                     JACOB
                         You’re worried about Teal’c and the 
                         rebel Jaffa.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         They’re counting on Ba’al’s fleet being 
                         too busy to even care about anything 
                         else.
 
                                     JACOB
                         The Jaffa rebellion has already failed. 
                         We can’t risk the fate of the galaxy 
                         on one long-shot chance to revive it.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         Is that Jacob talking, or is that Selmak?
 
                         
                                     JACOB
                         Jack, I’m sorry, but the more ships 
                         Ba’al sends out to fight, the faster 
                         the Replicators assimilate them into 
                         their own armada. Their numbers are 
                         growing exponentially. If we don’t do 
                         something about it, by the time we do 
                         come up with a weapon to use against 
                         them, it may be too late.
 
               (Alarms sound.)

                                     HARRIMAN
                         Unscheduled offworld activation.

               (Jack and Jacob leave the room.)

               
               CONTROL ROOM. Jack and Jacob come in.

                                     O’NEILL
                         Now what have you got, Walter?

                                     HARRIMAN
                         Some kind of ...

               (At that moment, a hologram of Ba’al appears on the ramp in the 
               Gateroom. The SFs raise their weapons.)
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Oh! Ba’al! (He heads down to the Gateroom, 
                         followed by Jacob, and addresses the 
                         troops.) Stand down, boys. (He walks 
                         over to face the hologram.) Ba’al, buddy! 
                         We were just talkin’ about you - all 
                         good! (He smiles mock-sweetly.)
 
                                     BA’AL
                         By now you are aware of the Replicator 
                         threat to our galaxy and that my fleet 
                         has engaged them in battle.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         There’s been a little chit (he turns 
                         to Jacob) and chat around the watercooler. 
                         (He smiles sarcastically at Ba’al.) 
                         How’s that goin’?
 
                                     BA’AL
                         We are holding them at bay for the moment. 
                         However, they are a more formidable 
                         force than I first anticipated.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Yeah. Pesky little buggers, aren’t they?
 
                         
                                     BA’AL
                         I am aware that the Asgard have previously 
                         fought the Replicators effectively.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         More or less. I don’t like to toot my 
                         own horn but ...
 
                                     BA’AL
                         I am aware that you assisted the Asgard. 
                         (He looks at Jack. Jack gazes back at 
                         him.)
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Yes?

                                     BA’AL
                         I wish to know what means you possess 
                         to fight this scourge.
 
               (Jack tilts his head, smiling slightly.)

                                     O’NEILL
                         I’m sorry - we must have had a bad connection 
                         there for a second. It almost sounded 
                         like you were asking me for help!
 
                         
                                     BA’AL
                         The Replicators are a threat to everyone, 
                         including the countless humans who populate 
                         worlds throughout this galaxy. Now, 
                         I propose that we work together to defeat 
                         our common enemy.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         My - this is an occasion! (He turns 
                         to Ba’al.) You know that bitter taste 
                         in your throat, it’s kind of wrapped 
                         around your uvula? That’s what’s left 
                         of your pride.
 
                                     BA’AL
                         Perhaps you could curb your amusement 
                         for a moment.
 
                                     JACOB
                         If we’re going to work together, the 
                         first thing we should discuss is strategy. 
                         Now, your attempts at meeting the Replicators 
                         head-on are only going to result ...
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         Jacob. J-J-Jacob. I got it. (He turns 
                         to Ba’al.) I’ve got a better idea. Instead 
                         of helping you, why don’t we sit back 
                         and watch you get your ass kicked? (He 
                         smiles smugly.) That way, you’ll be 
                         dead, and we’ll be glad!
 
                                     BA’AL
                         You cannot be serious.

                                     O’NEILL
                         Yes I can. I just choose not to some 
                         of the time. (He grins.)
 
                                     BA’AL
                         With your insolence you’re dooming not 
                         just your world but all of humanity.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         I think big!

               (Ba’al’s hologram disappears. Jacob walks round to face Jack.)
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         What the hell was that?

                                     O’NEILL
                         I’m sorry, Jacob, but I’m just not quite 
                         ready to sacrifice Teal’c. (He walks 
                         away.)
 
               
               THE DANIEL JACKSON. The beam continues to play over the Replicator 
               cells until they melt into a liquid form.
 
                                     THOR
                         The process is complete. Now we must 
                         re-establish the subspace link between 
                         these cells and the rest of the Replicators.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         What if they receive instructions?
 
                         
                                     THOR
                         It is a risk we will have to take. I 
                         will only maintain the link for microseconds 
                         at a time. It will slow the process, 
                         but I do not believe we have a choice.
 
                         
               (He activates a beam onto the Replicator cells for a couple of 
               seconds. As it fades, Sam looks at the screen behind Thor.)
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         What did we get?

                                     THOR
                         I am processing the data now. (A star 
                         map appears on the screen, covered with 
                         blue dots.) I believe we have pinpointed 
                         the location of the Replicators within 
                         this galaxy.
 
               (Sam stares at the map.)

                                     CARTER
                         They’re everywhere!

               
               HYPERSPACE. The rebel fleet of motherships is making its way 
               towards Dakara. On Bra’tac’s ship, Aron is manning the weapons 
               console.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         We are approaching Dakara. Defences?
 
                         
                                     TEAL’C
                         I am reading only a single ha’tak class 
                         vessel in orbit around the planet.
 
                         
                                     BRA’TAC
                         Ba’al must indeed be desperate. There 
                         are normally a dozen ships patrolling 
                         this system.
 
                                     ARON
                         Then we may yet succeed.

               
               DAKARA. As the single mothership patrols around the planet, the 
               three rebel motherships come out of hyperspace.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         We are in position.

                                     ARON
                         Gliders are ready for launch.

                                     TEAL’C
                         We are being hailed.

                                     JAFFA
                         You have encroached on the domain of 
                         Lord Ba’al. Identify yourselves immediately.
 
                         
                                     TEAL’C
                         Shal’kek nem’ron. (There is no response.) 
                         You are greatly outnumbered. Surrender 
                         now or be destroyed.
 
               
               VIS UBAN (or, rather, the planet that Jonas mistakenly identified 
               as Vis Uban in “Fallen”). Daniel is in the tent that he lived 
               in after he descended. Candles are lit all around the tent. He 
               is wearing the same blue robe he wore while on the planet. He 
               looks around, puzzled. A woman’s voice speaks.
 
                                     WOMAN
                         They called you Arom, did they not ... 
                         (Daniel turns to see Oma Desala, wearing 
                         a light blue hooded robe, standing behind 
                         him) ... after you returned to your 
                         plane of existence?
 
               (Daniel smiles.)

                                     DANIEL
                         Oma!

               (Oma removes her hood.)

                                     OMA
                         Daniel, it is good to see you again.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         I don’t understand. Last thing I remember 
                         ...
 
                                     OMA
                         You are still on the ship. The human 
                         form Replicator is attempting to probe 
                         your mind as we speak.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         So why are you here?

                                     OMA
                         Because when she is done, she will destroy 
                         you, and when that time comes, you will 
                         be faced with a choice.
 
               
               GOA’ULD PLANET. Ba’al walks into a throneroom. There is a Goa’uld 
               sitting on the throne, mostly obscured by a dark robe and hood.
 
               
                                     BA’AL
                         I have received word from the battle. 
                         The bulk of the fleet continues to engage 
                         the Replicators as you have ordered. 
                         However, I believe it would be wise 
                         to pull our forces back. If we stop 
                         confronting the enemy on so wide a front, 
                         it may slow their advance and allow 
                         us a chance to mount a proper defence.
 
                         
               (As Ba’al speaks, we see that the hands of the Goa’uld sitting 
               on the throne are covered with lesions.)
 
                                     GOA’ULD
                         You doubt my power.

                                     BA’AL
                         Of course not. But your fleet is falling 
                         into their hands rapidly. Not even the 
                         Kull warriors ...
 
               (The Goa’uld raises his head and we see that his face is also 
               covered with lesions.)
 
                                     GOA’ULD
                         Do not concern yourself. (He turns his 
                         head towards Ba’al - his eyes are bloodshot 
                         and his face is a mess. It’s Anubis.) 
                         When the time is right, I promise you, 
                         this nuisance will be dealt with. Trust 
                         in me.
 
               (Ba’al tries to hide a grimace.)

                                     BA’AL
                         As always.

               
               SGC. CONTROL ROOM. Sam is reporting to Jack and Jacob on a video 
               link from the Daniel Jackson.
 
                                     CARTER
                         It took several hundred microsecond-long 
                         connections and hours to go through 
                         each subsequent burst of data but eventually 
                         we managed to isolate the cipher that 
                         makes the Replicators immune to the 
                         disrupter and we’ve adjusted it accordingly.
 
                         
               (Jacob smiles and looks round at Jack, who is looking confused.)

                         The weapon works again.

                                     O’NEILL
                         Good job!

                                     CARTER
                         It was an incredibly risky thing to 
                         do, sir, and as it stands, we still 
                         don’t know if we were detected, and 
                         of course the altered disrupter still 
                         needs to be tested under battle conditions.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         Got a plan?

                                     CARTER
                         Thor was able to ascertain the various 
                         positions of the fleet now controlled 
                         by the Replicators. We’re going to engage 
                         a few isolated ships.
 
                                     JACOB
                         Be careful, Sam.

                                     O’NEILL
                         Good luck.

                                     CARTER
                         Thank you, sir.

               (The transmission ends.)

                                     JACOB
                         Never a dull moment.

               
               DANIEL’S TENT.

                                     DANIEL
                         So you’re here to offer me the opportunity 
                         to ascend again.
 
                                     OMA
                         If that is what you wish.

                                     DANIEL
                         What I wish? What are my options?

                                     OMA
                         Personally, I would choose eternal enlightenment 
                         rather than the alternative.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         If it were only that simple.

                                     OMA
                         I admit, the decision is not as easy 
                         as it appears. The last time, for you, 
                         the experience was challenging at the 
                         best of times.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Unfortunately I don’t have any memories 
                         of the last time I was ascended. How 
                         can I make an informed decision if I 
                         don’t remember what it was like?
 
                                     OMA
                         Daniel, I did not take your memories 
                         from you.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         You think I haven’t tried to remember? 
                         Tell me how.
 
                                     OMA
                         I can’t.

                                     DANIEL
                         Then tell me what I need to know.

                                     OMA
                         If you are seeking an absolute truth, 
                         you will not find it. Only truth that 
                         applies to you.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         That is so extremely unhelpful.

                                     OMA
                         When the time comes, you will know.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         What if Replicator Carter finds what 
                         it is she’s looking for?
 
                                     OMA
                         There is that possibility.

                                     DANIEL
                         You have to stop her.

                                     OMA
                         I can’t.

                                     DANIEL
                         Why not? Offer me ascension now!

                                     OMA
                         You’re not dead yet. All I can do is 
                         prepare you - help you to find your 
                         path to enlightenment, when that time 
                         comes, if that is what you decide you 
                         want.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         There’s a way to defeat the Replicators 
                         hidden somewhere within my memories, 
                         isn’t there?
 
                                     OMA
                         You need only to open your mind to it.
 
                         
               (Daniel frowns.)

               
               DAKARA. We see an overhead shot of the temple area. Then we go 
               down to the temple itself. The rebel Jaffa have overwhelmed the 
               Jaffa defending the temple. Bra’tac is addressing the captured 
               Jaffa.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         Brothers! All of you will be detained. 
                         Have patience. (He puts his hand on 
                         the shoulder of one of the captured 
                         Jaffa.) For all of you who renounce 
                         the Goa’uld as false gods will one day 
                         be free. (To the rebel Jaffa) Take them. 
                         (To the captured Jaffa) Go. You will 
                         not be harmed.
 
               (The captured Jaffa are led away. Teal’c and Aron come over to 
               join Bra’tac. Teal’c smiles.)
 
                                     ARON
                         The last of the garrison have surrendered. 
                         The temple is secure.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         Many lives were spared today. (He clasps 
                         Teal’c’s arm.) Well done.
 
               (Teal’c bows his head in acknowledgement.)

               
               SPACE. The Daniel Jackson comes out of hyperspace and approaches 
               a Replicator-infested mothership.
 
                                     THOR
                         Firing weapon.

               (His screen shows the beam from the disrupter flying towards 
               the mothership. Inside the mothership, Replicator bugs are crawling 
               all over the place. As the beam sweeps through the ship, the 
               Replicators disintegrate.)
 
                                     THOR
                         The ship’s systems have shut down.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         That worked well.

                                     THOR
                         The weapon appears to be effective.
 
                         
               (The screen shows a second ship appearing behind them.)

                                     CARTER
                         Another ship.

                                     THOR
                         They are firing on us. (The ship jolts.) 
                         Targeting the second ship.
 
               (As the second mothership fires again on the Daniel Jackson, 
               the disrupter beam envelops the mothership. However, it continues 
               firing.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         It’s still coming!

                                     THOR
                         They have adapted themselves to our 
                         modifications.
 
                                     CARTER
                         That was fast!

                                     THOR
                         Yes. (The ship jolts again.) Initiating 
                         evasive action.
 
               (The Daniel Jackson goes into hyperspace.)

               
               GOA’ULD PLANET. Ba’al comes into the throneroom to find Anubis 
               facing two super-soldiers holding a male human slave between 
               them.
 
                                     BA’AL
                         Excuse the intrusion. I will return. 
                         (He turns to leave.)
 
                                     ANUBIS
                         Stay.

               (Ba’al turns back and waits. The slave glances at Ba’al pleadingly. 
               Anubis’ current host body tilts his head back as the black cloud 
               that is Anubis comes out of him. The host collapses to the ground 
               as the cloud plunges into the slave. As it takes possession of 
               the slave, he throws off the grasp of the super-soldiers, who 
               pick up the dead body of the previous host and drag it away. 
               Anubis walks over to a window to admire his new reflection.)
 
               
                                     ANUBIS
                         Speak.

                                     BA’AL
                         A force of rebel Jaffa have managed 
                         to take control of the temple at Dakara.
 
                         
                                     ANUBIS
                         As I hoped. They have no doubt gathered 
                         their full force and presented us with 
                         the perfect opportunity to annihilate 
                         them once and for all. Have the fleet 
                         disengage their battle with the Replicators 
                         and move on Dakara. Take it back at 
                         all costs. Leave no survivors.
 
                                     BA’AL
                         As you wish. (He turns, not looking 
                         too pleased at his instructions, and 
                         walks away.)
 
               
               DANIEL’S TENT.

                                     OMA
                         You control the barrier between your 
                         consciousness and what you seek. You 
                         merely need to open your mind. The truth 
                         is, all knowledge, everything that is 
                         and was and will be, is everywhere - 
                         out there, and in all of us.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         If you immediately know the candlelight 
                         is fire, then the meal was cooked a 
                         long time ago.
 
               (Oma blinks a couple of times, apparently baffled by the statement.)
 
               
                                     OMA
                         Yes. (She smiles rather falsely.)

                                     DANIEL
                         No. You’re trying to understand it, 
                         aren’t you?
 
                                     OMA
                         It means what you want it to mean.
 
                         
                                     DANIEL
                         No it doesn’t - and you’re not Oma.
 
                         
               (Oma transforms into the RepliCarter.)

                                     REPLICARTER
                         No, I’m not, but it doesn’t matter. 
                         Thanks to you, I found what I was looking 
                         for.
 
               
               HYPERSPACE. THE DANIEL JACKSON.

                                     THOR
                         We are approaching Earth. We will be 
                         there shortly.
 
               (Controls and lights start to flicker and go off.)

                                     CARTER
                         What’s wrong?

                                     THOR
                         Several of my key systems are no longer 
                         responding. (He calls up an image of 
                         the ship on the viewscreen. Several 
                         parts of the image turn red.) We have 
                         been boarded.
 
               (The ship comes out of hyperspace. The image of the ship on the 
               screen goes fuzzy.)
 
                                     CARTER
                         See if you can modify the disrupter 
                         wave again. I’ll go buy us some time. 
                         (She starts to run from the room.)
 
                         
                                     THOR
                         I have no way of knowing how many Replicators 
                         you will face.
 
                                     CARTER
                         Well, what choice do we have?

                                     THOR
                         I must return you to Stargate Command 
                         before my transporter systems are affected.
 
                         
                                     CARTER
                         And what about you?

                                     THOR
                         I will attempt to fly this ship as far 
                         away from Earth as possible before it 
                         is completely compromised.
 
                                     CARTER
                         No way. I’m not gonna let you ...

               (A transporter beam envelops her and whisks her away and she 
               reappears in ...)
 
               
               SGC. JACK’S OFFICE. Jack is sitting at his desk. Sam runs out 
               of the beam and stops in front of Jack’s desk.
 
                                     CARTER
                         ... sacrifice yourself. (She realises 
                         where she is.) Dammit!
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Carter?

                                     CARTER
                         The weapon worked at first, but the 
                         Replicators immediately adapted themselves. 
                         They’re immune again.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         No chance you guys could fix this thing 
                         - get it to work?
 
                                     CARTER
                         Sir, Thor’s ship was boarded. He beamed 
                         me down here before all the systems 
                         were compromised. He’s trying to get 
                         his ship as far away from Earth as possible.
 
                         
                                     O’NEILL
                         I’ll take that as a no?

                                     CARTER
                         Yeah.

               
               DAKARA. Aron is admiring the temple walls. He walks over to Teal’c, 
               who is leaning against a pillar and smiling.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         Never in my dreams could I have imagined 
                         I would one day stand beneath these 
                         great columns.
 
                                     ARON
                         Think of it: this is the very spot in 
                         which our enslavement began.
 
                                     TEAL’C
                         Then this sacred temple is an appropriate 
                         place for our enslavement to end. (They 
                         walk over to Bra’tac.) We have won a 
                         great victory here today, old friend.
 
                         
                                     BRA’TAC
                         We have won a battle, Teal’c - nothing 
                         more. Our victory is far from assured.
 
                         
                                     TEAL’C
                         Many of Ba’al’s Jaffa have already pledged 
                         their allegiance to our cause. When 
                         word spreads of what we have accomplished, 
                         many more will follow.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         And their hearts will turn cold again 
                         if they hear our accomplishment lasted 
                         mere hours. (Tolok enters. Bra’tac turns 
                         to greet him.) Tolok. What news?
 
                                     TOLOK
                         We have received word. Ba’al has broken 
                         off his battle with the Replicators. 
                         He is coming.
 
                                     BRA’TAC
                         As we expected. You see - taking the 
                         temple was not our greatest challenge. 
                         Holding it will be.
 
               
               DANIEL’S TENT. All the candles blow out.

                         This Oma character: why do you have 
                         such reverence for her? Those ridiculous 
                         sayings are just nonsense.

                         If she really has as much power as you

                         No. I have no need for you to understand 
                         this.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Why the elaborate ruse? I mean, you 
                         probed my mind at will - I obviously 
                         can’t stop you.
 
                                     REPLICARTER
                         You could have resisted. I needed you 
                         to open up to the possibility of remembering 
                         the knowledge in your subconscious. 
                         It made it much easier for me to find 
                         what I was looking for.
 
                                     DANIEL
                         And what d’you find?

               (The RepliCarter turns to the entrance to the tent. Just outside 
               the tent, the sand rises into an exact replica of the temple 
               at Dakara.)
 
                                     DANIEL
                         Pretty! What is it?

                                     REPLICARTER
                         The ruin is of an Ancient monument on 
                         a planet now called Dakara. Within it 
                         is the one weapon in this galaxy capable 
                         of destroying me. (She gestures, and 
                         the sand blows away. She turns back 
                         to face Daniel.) Thanks to you, it will 
                         soon be no more.
 
               
               SGC. GATEROOM. Walter and Siler are standing facing the foot 
               of the ramp. Walter looks at his watch nervously. He glances 
               at Siler, then turns to face the ramp again.
 
                                     HARRIMAN
                         I’m sure he’ll be here any second now.
 
                         
               (On the ramp, Ba’al’s hologram is standing impatiently. He has 
               obviously been kept waiting there for some time.)
 
                                     HARRIMAN
                         So, um ...

               (At that moment, Jack comes in.)

                                     O’NEILL
                         I am so sorry. I was just finishing 
                         up a lovely brunch.
 
                                     BA’AL
                         Impudence.

                                     O’NEILL
                         No, tuna. So, I hear your fleet is retreating 
                         from the Replicators.
 
                                     BA’AL
                         How could you know that?

                                     O’NEILL
                         I have my sources.

                                     BA’AL
                         My fleet is on its way to recapture 
                         Dakara and destroy the Jaffa who have 
                         dishonoured their true god.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Will you stop with the “true god” crap? 
                         I mean, seriously, what difference will 
                         it make? You’re just delaying the inevitable.
 
                         
                                     BA’AL
                         The Replicators are a formidable enemy 
                         - but I have recently learned of a weapon 
                         hidden on Dakara capable of destroying 
                         them.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Really? And you’re telling me this why?
 
                         
                                     BA’AL
                         Because you must destroy it before my 
                         fleet arrives to claim it.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         Alright - you got me. I haven’t the 
                         slightest idea what you’re talking about.
 
                         
                                     BA’AL
                         The weapon on Dakara was built by the 
                         Ancients. It is not only capable of 
                         destroying Replicators but all life 
                         in the galaxy.
 
                                     O’NEILL
                         And your own sweet self included.

                                     BA’AL
                         Yes.

                                     O’NEILL
                         So why would you use it?

                                     BA’AL
                         I would not, but there is one who would 
                         - one who can survive such pervasive 
                         devastation.
 
               (Jack closes his eyes as he realises who Ba’al is talking about.)
 
               
                                     O’NEILL
                         Oh, please don’t tell me.

                                     BA’AL
                         Anubis.

                                     O’NEILL
                         I asked you not to tell me.

               
               TO BE CONTINUED.
