                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 602

                                    "REDEMPTION II"

                                           By

                                    Robert C. Cooper




               A shot of the X-302 is shown being wheeled on a runway.

               
                                     SAM VOICEOVER
                         The X-302 will be the first human built 
                         spacecraft ... (Shot goes to Sam) Capable 
                         of intersteller travel.
 
               
                                     GENERAL HAMMOND
                         (To Jack, who is shown) Colonel Chekov 
                         feels a Russian officer should be assigned 
                         to join SG-1.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Over my rotting corpse, Sir.

               
                                     JONAS
                         I want to join you.

               
                                     SAM
                         I just don't see it happening. (Another 
                         scene, in the control room, to Jack 
                         and Hammond ) We detected an energy 
                         buildup within the gate.
 
               
                                     JAFFA
                         (On another planet, to Teal'C and Bratac.) 
                         The Tauri are in danger ... they are 
                         under attack from Anubis.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         (To Jack and Hammond) We're talking 
                         about a blast 2,000 to 3,000 megatons.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         There's worse??

               
                                     SAM
                         We have no idea how to stop it.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         If the X-302 fails, this planet will 
                         be destroyed.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         (Climbing in the spacecraft, to Jack) 
                         Even if we do manage to contact the 
                         Asguard, there's a chance (Voiceover, 
                         the plane is shown taking off) they 
                         won't be able to help us.
 
               
                                     BRATAC
                         (Voiceover; the plane is still being 
                         shown) Anubis has grown powerful; (He's 
                         shown, talking to Teal'C.) but still, 
                         only defends a very small handful of 
                         planets. If one of those stargates also 
                         can not be contacted ...
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         ... It is most likely, the origin of 
                         the attack.
 
               
               The plane is shown flying toward a hyperspace window, but missing.
 
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Mission command, we missed the window.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         (To Hammond and Lemon boy ... uh ... 
                         Dr. McKay) We thought we'd compensated 
                         for the energy fluctuations emitted 
                         by the Naquadria, but apparently not.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Bottom line is, we're on our own.

               
               
                                     JACK
                         (LESS than impressed! ;)) Oh, PLEASE!
 
                         
               
               
                                     MCKAY
                         (Sarcastically, walking up the steps 
                         with Sam) He has a real FLAIR for the 
                         dramatic, doesn't he?? Very theatrical.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah. Pretty much all the Goa'Uld are 
                         like that.
 
               
                                     MCKAY
                         But, why wait? Why does this guy show 
                         up a day and a half after this all starts 
                         to do his whole "Prepare to meet your 
                         doom" thing?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I don't know. Maybe he wanted to make 
                         sure it was gonna work. (Sam smells 
                         the coffee )
 
               
                                     MCKAY
                         Yeah, that WOULD be embarrassing, wouldn't 
                         it? --- (Darth voice again) "Nothing 
                         can stop the destruction That I bring 
                         upon you!" (She makes a face, and put 
                         the coffee down) Then the gate shuts 
                         down. Oops, sorry. Nevermind ...
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah, well, that didn't happen, and 
                         we only have ... 54 hours left.
 
               
                                     GEEK # 1
                         Major, can I see you for a second? When 
                         the gate was connected to the black 
                         hole, a shaped charge was used to disengage 
                         the wormhole.
 
               
                                     GEEK #2
                         Yes, but that was an outgoing wormhole.
 
                         
               
                                     GEEK # 1
                         True, but ...

               
                                     GEEK # 2
                         The blast would detonate the gate. (Sam's 
                         shaking her head)
 
               
                                     MCKAY
                         Wait a minute ...

               
                                     GEEK # 1
                         If you'd just let me FINISH!

               
                                     MCKAY
                         (Walked over to the observation window) 
                         No, you're both horribly wrong, both 
                         of you, but you gave me an idea. (Sam 
                         smiles to herself) We know that certain 
                         waves can travel in both directions 
                         thru a wormhole ... radio signals for 
                         one.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         So, what? We call Anubis up, ask him 
                         to stop?
 
               
                                     MCKAY
                         Yeah, (Sarcastically in a fast talking, 
                         Agent's voice) "Hey, Anubis, this is 
                         you agent, you're playing it way over 
                         the top, can you get serious, please??" 
                         (This gets a smile from Sam)
 
               
                                     SAM
                         You were saying ... ?

               
                                     MCKAY
                         We send a massive EM pulse back thru 
                         the wormhole, knock out whatever it 
                         is that's making this happen on the 
                         other end.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Will that work?

               
                                     SAM
                         No, Sir. I already thought of it, and 
                         the reason I didn't mention it, is because 
                         it would be too problematic.
 
               
                                     MCKAY
                         More so than the gate exploding?

               
                                     SAM
                         The Iris would have to be opened.

               
                                     MCKAY
                         Well, the gateroom's shielded, isn't 
                         it?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Major, are you saying that this absolutely 
                         won't work?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         What I'm saying is that we have no idea 
                         how much EM would be required to knock 
                         this thing out.
 
               
                                     MCKAY
                         (Sarcastically) So, let's all just go 
                         home. (Sam looks pissed)
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         How long will it take to set up?

               
                                     MCKAY
                         Four hours ,tops.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         (To Sam) That's how long you have to 
                         come up with a better idea.
 
               
               OPENING CREDITS

               
                                     BRATAC
                         (Dialing a planet, getting no response, 
                         to Teal'C Ryac, and the jaffa) I have 
                         tried to connect to this world twice 
                         now. It is the only one I can not make 
                         contact with.

                         Than we must hope that is the location 
                         of the weapon.

                         he stops his father) I'm coming with 
                         you. If the Goa'Uld truly can be defeated, 
                         than I wish to be a part of it. You 
                         said I could not judge this war if I 
                         am yet to fight a battle. (To Bratac) 
                         You've trained me. Now let me fight. 
                         (Teal'c and Bratac share looks) You 
                         said you did not doubt me.

                         Sirs, I've calculated that opening the 
                         iris will increase the flow of energy 
                         to the gate by at least 10 times. Nw, 
                         if this doesn't work, we'll be cutting 
                         as much as half the remaining time before 
                         the gate detonates.

                         I do not understand. There was at least

                         It is always more difficult to hit a

                         (SO not getting what all of us heard! 
                         ;)) I had a not-so- comfortable childhood. 
                         My Parents hated each other, blamed 
                         me. Music was my salvation. It had this 
                         ... perfect order for me.

                         When I was 12, my teacher told me to 
                         quit. A fine clinical player, he said, 
                         but no sense of the art whatsoever.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Why are you telling me this?

                                     SAM
                         Why?

                         Hospital gowns turn me on. (Smiles) 
                         I turned to science because I thought 
                         it would be different than music, but 
                         It isn't. It's just the same, it's just 
                         as much of an art as anything else.

                         You're an artist, Major. Maybe the best 
                         I've ever seen. I'm just critical because 
                         I'm jealous.

                         I'm touched, really. I wish I had a 
                         brilliant plan to draw up for you.

                         And you're funny, too. Even electrocuted. 
                         I mean, I've ... I've got nothing.

                         You're creeping me out, McKay.

                         It's just self preservation, see? I'm 
                         realizing that I won't be able to solve 
                         this, and that one of your insane idea 
                         will be our best chance.

                         You were right, we cut it almost in 
                         half.

                                     SAM
                         Well, first, I thought I'd get dressed.
 
                         
               
                                     MCKAY
                         Right. (He just sits there looking at 
                         her.)
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Leave.

               
                                     MCKAY
                         Right. (Stands) Do you want me to ... 
                         hold anything, or ... (Sam stands looking 
                         like she wants to kick his butt;)) Yeah. 
                         (He runs out the room)
 
               
               Sam winces in pain, holding her hand, smiles, and sits back down.
 
               
               
               Back on the planet. A glider flies overhead. The trio comes up 
               to Anubis's weapon. It's a large circle with statues all around 
               it. In the center is a big statue that's shooting lightning to 
               the opened stargate.(Kinda like in Window of opportunity at the 
               beginning) All around the circle is lightning, protecting the 
               weapon.

                         This weapon is unlike any Goa'Uld design 
                         I have ever seen.

                         I have seen similar a construction before. 
                         It appears to have been built by the

                         The Goa'Uld steal the technology and 
                         claim it as their own.

                         If this is not Goa'Uld technology, then 
                         Anubis has nearly learned to operate

                         Perhaps by destroying it, he will not 
                         be able to rebuilt it quickly.

                         That does not concern you. You are to 
                         remain here. (Getting up)

                         You are injured. You will slow our pace, 
                         and risk giving us away.

                         Ry'Ac, listen to him. This is but one 
                         of many battles to be fought. (Ry'Ac 
                         looks disappointed, but he knows they

                         Sam) If we encase the gate in trinium 
                         alloy, it could reduce the effects of 
                         the explosion by as much as 40 %.

                         There isn't time for that plan! If we 
                         detonate the gate ourselves right now, 
                         we could reduce the eventual damage 
                         by as much as 20%. (Sam looks at Hammond,

                         The damage to the planet's atmosphere 
                         would still be irreversible. Any 
                         survivors would be stuck on a world

               Sam looks down to the gate, and Jonas is standing on the ramp, 
               drinking his tea, just looking at the gate. The camera pans around 
               him, down in the gateroom. You get a *REAL* good shot of his 
               body  as the camera moves around him. Sam walks

                         just looks at him) Evidence of how desperate 
                         your pathetic little rebellion is ... 
                         You bring a *BOY* to fight the war of 
                         *MEN*?  (This pisses Teal'C off! 
                         ;) He makes a lunge at the Jaffa)  Or is it something else? 
                         Maybe he is someone to whom you wish 
                         to prove yourself. (He sees it in Teal'C's 
                         eyes) Bring me the old man. Cover the 
                         boy so he will not escape. Unlike you, 
                         he is of little importance to Anubis. 
                         However, on your behalf, I'll be sure 
                         to demonstrate to him how a real warrior 
                         fights ... to the death!
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (To Sam walking the corridor to the 
                         elevators) Is there anything else I 
                         should know?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, there is concern that the 302 
                         may not have the fuel capacity to exit 
                         the atmosphere carrying the weight of 
                         the stargate.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         How is *that* possible??

               
                                     SAM
                         The engines were designed for a craft 
                         with a Alien Inertial dampening system 
                         the effectually reduced it's overall 
                         mass.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yes, and??

               
                                     SAM
                         Well, you'll be carrying a very heavy 
                         load .
 
               
                                     JACK
                         How heavy?

               
                                     SAM
                         The gate ways 64,000 pounds, Sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         That's heavy.

               
                                     SAM
                         And you'll need to reach an altitude 
                         exceeding 180 kilometers ...
 
               
                                     JACK
                         ... At minimum escape velocity before 
                         I release the gate, or it'll fall back 
                         to Earth ... I know, I know.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, based on the X-302 's fuel burn 
                         capacity, even a full burn won't do 
                         it, which means the other engines will 
                         have to get you part ways up, hauling 
                         something that weighs 6 times greater 
                         than it was designed to carry.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, Carter ...

               
                                     SAM
                         Well, the whole rig isn't exactly aerodynamic 
                         either.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Carter ... I'm sure I want to know any 
                         of this.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         They're working on lightning the 302, 
                         but that's why you're going alone. Believe 
                         it or not, every pound counts.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I shouldn't have had that cake.

               
                                     SAM
                         I wish I could go with you Sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         Yes, I'm sure you do. (Stepping in the 
                         elevator) And I find that quite bizarre. 
                         Anything else?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, Sir, if this works, Jonas really 
                         deserves ...
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What? Deserves what?

               
                                     SAM
                         I don't know ... something. He's the 
                         one who gave me the idea to do this. 
                         Sir, he gave up everything to bring 
                         us the Naquadria.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         The hyperspace generator doesn't work.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         That's not his fault. (He nods) Good 
                         luck, Sir.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Hey, what could go wrong, huh? (Presses 
                         the elevator button, nothing happens. 
                         He bangs on it 3 more times, nothing 
                         happens, Sam smiles. The door finally 
                         closes)
 
               
               Ry'Ac is shown waiting impatiently in the dark. He sighs, and 
               runs off.
 
               
               Elsewhere on the planet, a band of Jaffa get to another group 
               of Jaffa.
 
               
               
               
               Ry'Ac is shown listening, and watches a glider pass over him.
 
               
               
               A whole bunch of planes are shown. (Are the F-16's?? I'm not 
               sure)
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (To Murphy) What exactly did you remove?
 
                         
               
                                     MURPHY
                         Weapons, some life support ... don't 
                         worry, there's still more than a day's 
                         worth.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, if we need more than an hour, 
                         we're all in trouble.
 
               
                                     MURPHY
                         Right. We also took out RADAR, some 
                         of the crash safety mechanisms, landing 
                         gear ...
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Looks at him) Excuse me??

               
                                     MURPHY
                         We had to in order to properly accommodate 
                         the clamping system, so once you reenter 
                         the atmosphere, you're gonna have to 
                         eject. That is after you target to spash 
                         down off the coast of Florida.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Just ... when were you gonna tell me 
                         this part?
 
               
                                     MURPHY
                         Just now. We weren't sure any of this 
                         was gonna happen until 5 minutes ago. 
                         You're not gonna believe this ... (They 
                         get to the door of the hanger, Murphy 
                         puts on his hat. Jack stops, looking 
                         at something in awe.)
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Holy Crap!

               
               The X-302 is strapped to the top of a 747.

               
                                     MURPHY
                         They're waiting for you. (Jack climbs 
                         in a jeep) Good luck! (Jack just smiles)
 
                         
               
               Ry'Ac is shown arriving at "Command Central" on the planet. Several 
               gliders are shown on the ground. He looks up as he hears one 
               flying overhead. The boy crawls on the ground.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         They're airborne, Sir.

                         we're approaching separation altitude.
 
                         
               
               A good shot of Jack in the cockpit is shown. The gate, apparently, 
               is below the craft between the X-302 and the 747. They're being 
               escorted by a couple of Air Force planes, I'm assuming a F-16 
               s. (I don't know)

                         Proceeding with separation. (He presses 
                         some buttons, and separates from the 
                         plane, taking the gate higher) Separation

                         too shallow to fire the rocket booster.

                         I may have been understating things 
                         ... it feels like this thing's falling 
                         apart. (The joystick is shaking badly, 
                         the craft is shown shooting up at a

                         this working by only activating the

                         was too late for the Tauri.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, it was close there for a minute.

                         permission to land.

                                     JACK
                         Good job!

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         (The beaming proud papa!) It is, in 
                         fact, Ry'Ac, who deserves the honour. 
                         (Ry'Ac is shown next to his father alive 
                         and well.)
 
               
               A good shot of the cargo ship flying into Earth is shown.

               
               The gate is shown being lowered into place. (So they finally 
               with have the seventh symbol that they show on the computer match 
               the gate , the original Giza gate is in the SGC now, the Antarctic 
               gate was destroyed.;))
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Sir, if you don't mind me asking ... 
                         what exactly did we give the Russians?
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND

                         And the plans for the X-302 & X-303.

                                     JACK
                         (To Ry'Ac) So I hear you're a pretty 
                         good pilot.
 
               
                                     RY'AC
                         Master Bratac taught me well. I hope 
                         to be good as my father one day.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Just know that no one is THAT good.
 
                         
               
                                     RY'AC
                         It also helps to be lucky.

               
                                     JACK
                         Don't I know that! Listen, are you sure 
                         you don't wanna stick around for a little 
                         while, maybe hang out?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Ry'Ac has chosen to help Bra'Tac spread 
                         the word of our cause.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, it's good to see you again. (Shakes 
                         his hand)
 
               
               Teal'C looks at his son, and they shake hands, then Teal'C pulls 
               him into a hug.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         (Jack is walking down the hall) Colonel! 
                         Colonel ... have you got a moment?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Carter told me everything you did to 
                         help out. We all appreciate it, thanks 
                         alot. See you later. (Passes his card 
                         to open the elevator)
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         Colonel ... Dr. Jackson is gone.

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, I noticed that.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Not a day goes by when I don't think 
                         about what happened. I stood by and 
                         watched while he saved my people from 
                         disaster. It should have been me who 
                         jumped thru the glass, (Jack looks pissed) 
                         disarmed the device, and he's gone because 
                         I didn't. You have to live with that, 
                         so do I.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You want me to make you feel better? 
                         It wasn't your fault. I don't blame 
                         you.
 
               
                                     JONAS
                         If I could go back and change what happened, 
                         I would do that. (Jack presses the button 
                         again) But I can't. All I can do is 
                         try to change what happens from now 
                         on. I don't want you to exonerate me. 
                         I just want to be given the opportunity 
                         to prove that I can make a difference.
 
                         
               
               The door finally opens, and Jack steps in the elevator, closing 
               it without saying a word. Jonas looks disappointed, and walks 
               down the hall.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Knocking on hammond's door) You wanted 
                         to see me, Sir?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I know this is not what you wanted to 
                         heard, but part of the deal to get the 
                         Stargate from the Russians involved 
                         agreeing to let one of their officers 
                         join SG-1.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Looks disgusted) This is the thanks 
                         I get for saving the world again?
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I'm sorry, Jack. You're going to have 
                         to learn to live with this.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Sir, can't we just throw them a bone? 
                         Give them their own unit. They'd be 
                         happy with that, wouldn't they?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What about SG-1?

               
                                     JACK
                         Actually, General ... I've already chosen 
                         our new team member.
 
               
               Sam , Jack and Teal'C are on the ramp preparing to go thru the 
               gate.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         (Coming in the room) Good luck, Colonel!
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Thank you, Sir.

               
               Jonas comes running in, wearing the same green fatigues as the 
               rest, but instead of a baseball hat, he's wearing a helmet!
 
               
               
                                     JONAS
                         How do I look?                          >
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Uh ... you might want to lose the helmet 
                         . (Jack looks at her, and motions 'No' 
                         with his hands.)
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Good guess on the green.

               
                                     JONAS
                         Thanks.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         SG-1, you have a go.

               
                                     JACK
                         Thank you, Sir.

               
               They line up on the gate. Jonas puts on his baseball hat. Jack 
               smiles at Jonas, and they walk up the ramp then thru the gate 
               together.
 
               
               THE END!
