                                     "REDEMPTION I"

               PLANET P2X-374

               
               Captain Hagman is helping Jack run down a sandy slope toward 
               the gate. Sam and Teal'c are already near the gate.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         "Dial the gate! Dial it now!"

               
                                     CAPT. HAGMAN 
                         "I swear, sir, I thought they wanted 
                         to smoke a peace pipe."
 
               
               Sam approaches the DHD and quickly dials Earth. Suddenly, a swarm 
               of natives appear on the hills surrounding the valley where the 
               Stargate sits, yelling, and carrying spears and dart guns. Teal'c 
               joins Capt. Hagman in helping Jack as the natives descend in 
               pursuit.
 
               
               SGC

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         " 'Morning Sergeant."

               
                                     SGT. DAVIS
                         " 'Morning, Sir."

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         "When is SG-1 due back?"

               
                                     SGT. DAVIS
                         "Hour and 22 minutes from now, sir."
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         " When they get back, tell Major Carter 
                         I have a message."
 
               
                                     SGT. DAVIS
                         "Yes, sir."

               
               Suddenly the 'gate activates and the alarms go off.

               
                                     SGT. DAVIS
                         "Incoming wormhole, sir."

               
               Davis sits down at the computer as General Hammond comes to stand 
               behind him.
 
               
                                     SGT. DAVIS
                         "Receiving SG-1's identification code. 
                         It's a code red sir. Looks like they're 
                         under fire."
 
               
               Hammond picks up a handset on the wall.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         "Defense unit and medical team to the 
                         gateroom."
 
                                     SGT. DAVIS
                         "Opening the iris."

               
               Hammond heads down to the gateroom. He follows a couple of armed 
               personnel into the gate room just as SG-1 walks through the 'gate. 
               A spear flies through behind SG-1 and lands at the General's 
               feet. He reaches down to pick it up. He looks up to see Jack 
               being helped by Teal'c as they head past him toward the infirmary.
 
               
               
                                     JACK
                         "Next."

               
               General Hammond approaches Major Carter and Capt. Hagman on the 
               ramp. Capt. Hagman pulls a dart out of his leg as a medic approaches.
 
               
               
                                     CAPT. HAGMAN
                         "I've been shot."

               
               Sam pulls another dart out of his shoulder as the Lt. sits down 
               heavily on his rear.
 
               
                                     CAPT. HAGMAN
                         "Some sort of tranquilizers..."

               
               The Lt. passes out. The medic checks his pulse.

               
                                     MEDIC
                         "Steady pulse. He's just unconscious, 
                         sir."
 
               
               Sam stands up, holding the dart and approaches Hammond.

               
                                     SAM
                         "I'd classify P2X-374 as unfriendly, 
                         sir...fairly, primitive from the looks 
                         of it."
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         "I presume Captain Hagman will need 
                         to be reassigned?"
 
               
                                     SAM
                         "I'd say so, sir."

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         "We'll debrief in one hour. Dismissed...Oh, 
                         Major, I got a call this morning from 
                         Area 51. It's done."
 
               
               General Hammond returns to the ramp. Sam mouths the word Wow 
               and heads out the door of the gateroom.

               DANIEL'S LAB

               
               Jonas now occupies Daniel's lab. The TV is tuned to the weather 
               channel and he is listening to classical music while reading 
               and eating grapes. Sam approaches slowly, looking around the 
               lab and smiling.
 
               
                                     SAM

               Sam stops and turns to face him.

               approached by Dr. Larry Murphy.

               Jack (limping) climbs up the steps to the cockpit of the aircraft 
               and begins to climb in. Jonas climbs up the stairs after him. 
               Teal'c walks to check out the underside of the craft and Sam 
               and the Dr. Murphy at the foot of the stairs.

               Hammond and Sam leave the office. Col. Checkov looks at Jonas, 
               who smiles at him.

                         Jaffa Planet

               
               Teal'c and Brata'c walk through a Jaffa camp as they converse. 
               At one point, another Jaffa leaves the place he occupies and 
               bumps Teal'c as he moves to his new location. Teal'c pauses and 
               looks at the Jaffa, but says nothing. You get the feeling that 
               these Jaffa do not hold Teal'c in high regard. Teal'c and Brata'c 
               continue until they stop in front of a tent.
 
               
                                     BRATA'C
                         "As you see, conditions are harsh, but 
                         they have been safe here."
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         "They must be moved to the new outpost 
                         built by the Tau'ri. All Jaffa who support 
                         our cause are welcome there."
 
               
                                     BRATA'C
                         "Drey'auc is in no state to be moved 
                         now."

                         "She refused to accept the new symbiote."
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C

                                     BRATA'C
                         "No. She did not wish us to sacrifice 
                         the life of another Jaffa to save her 
                         own, even one who still foolishly worships 
                         the false gods. We would all chose the 
                         same fate."
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         "In the past..."

               
                                     BRATA'C
                         "It is not the past, my friend. The 
                         descent we have bred has brought around 
                         many changes. The Goa'uld no longer 
                         trust the Jaffa priests with their young 
                         as they once did..."
 
               
               Rya'c emerges from the tent.

                         "You dare show your face here? She is 
                         dead...because of you."
 
               
               Rya'c shoves Teal'c as he walks past him, obviously upset. Teal'c 
               is stunned into silence.

               He kneels beside the cot and pulls back the cloth that is covering

               does nothing to retaliate, but allows

               Teal'c regains his feet.

                         that Apophis was my god. Whether you

               A colorful "cloud" appears in front of the 302. Suddenly master
