                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 705

                                      "REVISIONS"

                                           By

                             Joseph Mallozzi & Paul Mullie

               
               
                                     JACKSON
                         What's going on?

               
                                     CARTER
                         We're getting MALP telemetry from P3X-289. 
                         Atmosphere is completely toxic: sulfur 
                         dioxide, carbon monoxide, methane, ammonia...
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Well, if there was a 'gate there, then 
                         chances are good there was life there 
                         at some point.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, I think that's a safe assumption. 
                         Look at this.
 
               
               We see a picture on the computer monitor of what appears to be 
               a fuzzy dome in the middle of a white fog. There are rocky outcroppings 
               surrounding the fog and sparsely protruding from the foggy area.
 
               
               
                                     CARTER
                         We got these images two hour ago, just 
                         after the MALP went through. The dome 
                         seems to be the only structure that's 
                         managed to withstand the corrosive effects 
                         of the atmosphere.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         How big is it?

               
                                     CARTER
                         It's about 2.2 kilometers wide and 500 
                         meters high.
 
               
                                     DAVIS
                         The MALP's giving us a proximity alert. 
                         Three meters...and we're picking up 
                         a static charge.
 
               
               We see video of the end of the MALP arm on the monitor. The MALP 
               is in the foggy area.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Stop. Extend the arm.

               
               We see the arm extend and it appears to push through a barrier 
               of some kind. There is a bit of a rainbow shimmer as it passes 
               through the barrier. The part of the arm that is through the 
               barrier is no longer visible.
 
               
                                     DAVIS
                         It went right through.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Well, whatever it is, it's not solid.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Move forward.

               
               On the monitor we see the MALP camera push through the barrier. 
               Once on the other side, we see terrain that is reminiscent of 
               the garden area from The Gamekeeper. Sam and Daniel both watch 
               the MALP progress intently. Then the monitor goes black.
 
               
                                     DAVIS
                         Uh, we've lost contact. The MALP's not 
                         responding.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Bring up that last image.

               
               We see an image of the nice terrain...water, green grass, trees, 
               etc. again.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         How is that possible?

               
                                     CARTER
                         I have no idea.

               
               OPENING CREDITS

               
               SGC - Control Room The alarms are blaring again and the 'gate 
               is active. General Hammond walks up to stand behind Davis.
 
               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Colonel O'Neill...report.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         We're good, Sir. Although, there's not 
                         much of a view.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What about suit integrity?

               
                                     CARTER
                         According to my readings, the hazmats 
                         could withstand about 12 hours of exposure 
                         before there was any serious degradation.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Shouldn't be a problem, Sir. We can 
                         make it to the dome and back inside 
                         an hour.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Understood, Hammond out.

               
               Alien Planet SG-1, in full hazmat gear (red suits, hoods, breathing 
               apparatus, etc.) are walking through a very dense fog or smoke. 
               The fog has a slight brown tint to it. There is little visibility, 
               though remains of structures and trees can be seen if they are 
               in close proximity.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Picking up a static charge.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Yeah, I can feel it.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         So, what do we do...just walk through?
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         The MALP encountered no resistance.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Then it disappeared.

               
                                     CARTER
                         It did transmit for a few seconds before 
                         we lost the signal, which suggests it 
                         got through.
 
               
               Jack unhooks his P-90 and extends it through the barrier for 
               a few seconds. He pulls it back. Then he walks right through. 
               Once through, he is in a beautiful landscape. He sees what the 
               MALP transmitted just before they lost contact with it. He walks 
               up to the MALP and a few seconds later the rest of SG-1 comes 
               through the barrier.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I'm reading normal atmosphere. Oxygen, 
                         nitrogen... (She turns her scanning 
                         device toward Daniel) We're clean too.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         It's like the barrier scrubbed the suits 
                         when we passed through.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         The inside of the barrier seems to be 
                         some kind of hologram.
 
               
               She reaches her hand back in the direction they came from and 
               where she touches the barrier, the landscape seems to blur. Daniel 
               sticks his whole forearm back through the barrier.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         You can feel the resistance.

               
                                     CARTER
                         That combined with the static charge 
                         must act as a warning. (She pulls off 
                         her hood.) So you don't accidentally 
                         step through.
 
               
               Jack pulls off his hood too and takes a look around. Teal'c takes 
               off his hood as well and does a quick check of the MALP.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The MALP appears to be fully operational.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         The barrier must block the signal. Sir, 
                         this is an amazing piece of technology. 
                         Permeable to large solid objects, but 
                         won't allow the poisonous atmosphere 
                         in. We really need to study this further.
 
                         
               
               Sam and Jack continue to walk away from the MALP with Teal'c 
               and Daniel bringing up the rear. Then they hear a twig snap. 
               Jack uses a hand signal to tell the other's to hang back while 
               he investigates. He walks toward a large pine tree, weapon raised.
 
               
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right, come on out. Let's go.

               
               A young boy walks out from behind the tree. He pulls down on 
               a branch to look over it at the strangers. Jack puts his gun 
               down. Sam smiles.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Hello.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         We're not gonna hurt you.

               
                                     NEVIN
                         You came from outside.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yes...we did. What's your name?

               
                                     NEVIN
                         What's yours?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         I asked you first.

               
                                     NEVIN
                         I'm called Nevin.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Hello, Nevin. I'm Jack. That's Sam, 
                         Daniel and Teal'c.
 
               
                                     NEVIN
                         You wear strange clothes.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Caught us on a bad day.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Nevin, where are your parents?

               
                                     NEVIN
                         My father's in the town.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Can you show us?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         We just want to talk to him.

               
                                     NEVIN
                         Maybe we could trade.

               
               Next we see SG-1, the hazmat suits shed (Teal'c is carrying one), 
               walking along. Jack and Sam are walking nearly side by side and 
               Teal'c and Daniel are nearly side by side behind them. The camera 
               pans out to reveal Nevin up ahead of them wearing one of the 
               suits and carrying the hood. They are walking through the town. 
               It is heavy on stone and brick construction. It's a very quaint 
               and attractive town.

                         You know, Sir, we probably could have 
                         found the town without his help.

                         I found some people in the gardeNEVIN: 
                         Jack, Sam, Daniel and Teal'c.

                         I'm Kendrick, Nevin's father.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         I assume you don't get many visitors 
                         in these parts.
 
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         We thought we were the only survivors.

                         Survivors of what, exactly?

               
                                     KENDRICK
                         You'd better speak to the Council.
 
                         
               
               Council Chamber SG-1 are standing in the room which has windows 
               all around. There are three men and one woman seated at a table 
               in front of SG-1. Jack is looking around because there are people 
               crowded up to the windows all around peeking inside.

                         You say you came from outside the dome...
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         That's right.

               
               But the atmosphere is toxic. Anyone who stepped outside would 
               die almost instantly.

                                     JACKSON
                         Uh, no, we came through the Stargate. 
                         It's that-that big circular object...uh, 
                         symbols carved on it. It's right outside 
                         the dome. (The council members stare 
                         blankly back at him.) There must be 
                         some sort of historical reference to...

                         fingers up to touch the device on his 
                         temple. All the citizens stop, as though 
                         in suspended animation. Then seconds

               Alien Planet Jack and Teal'c are back in the garden. They are 
               walking to the MALP.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         You really think this is gonna work?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The signal was lost only when the transmitter 
                         crossed the barrier. We need only maneuver 
                         the MALP into the correct position.
 
                         
               
               Jack holds Teal'c's staff weapon as Teal'c uses a remote control 
               to move the MALP back through the barrier far enough that the 
               transmitter is on the outside of the dome. He looks at Jack, 
               signaling that they are ready to receive a transmission from 
               the SGC.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Nice. (He gives Teal'c back his staff 
                         weapon.)
 
               
               Meanwhile back in the SGC control room, the alarms are going 
               off because the 'gate is going to be active again. Sgt. Davis 
               and General Hammond walk toward the computer console from separate 
               areas.
 
               
                                     DAVIS
                         We have a scheduled radio contact with 
                         SG-1, Sir.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Dial the 'gate.

               
               Back on the planet, Jack is swinging his arms as he awaits the 
               transmission.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         (over the MALP radio) SG-1, this is 
                         General Hammond. Come in.
 
               
               Jack leans his face into the camera, filling the computer screen 
               with his face.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yes, Sir. We read ya, loud and clear. 
                         (He whips his sunglasses off. He has 
                         a distinct drawl in his voice.) Loud 
                         and clear.

                         Well, it turns out this planet's not 
                         so dead after all, Sir.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I take it the dome's inhabited.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yes, Sir. So far, the natives are very 
                         friendly, if...a bit odd, if you know 
                         what I mean.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Are they willing to share information?
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         They're gonna show Carter all the technical 
                         stuff tomorrow. In the meantime, they've 
                         offered to put us up for the night.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         All right, next contact in 24 hours.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yes, Sir. (He salutes.)

               
               Alien Planet - Night Jack, Teal'c and Nevin are seated at a dining 
               table and Kendrick is putting bowls on the table.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Thank you. Teal'c nods at Kendrick and 
                         then Kendrick goes into another room 
                         (the kitchen?) Jack looks at his bowl, 
                         then looks at Teal'c's as Teal'c watches. 
                         A few seconds later, Jack signals Teal'c 
                         to trade bowls with him. Nevin just 
                         stares at Jack as he prepares to eat 
                         the meal Kendrick has prepared. Then 
                         Jack notices him staring, so he stares 
                         back. Then Teal'c notices Jack staring.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (to Nevin) What?

               
                                     NEVIN
                         How many planets have you been to?
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         I don't know...lots.

               
                                     NEVIN
                         More than 10?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yeah.

               
                                     NEVIN
                         More than 20?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yes.

               
                                     NEVIN
                         More than 30?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yeah.

               
                                     NEVIN
                         More than 40?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yes.

               
                                     NEVIN
                         More than 50?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Maybe...

               
                                     KENDRICK
                         (peeking into the room) Nevin...let 
                         the poor man eat.
 
               
                                     NEVIN
                         It's more than 50, isn't it?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (to Teal'c) Think it's too late to pitch 
                         a tent?
 
               
               Meanwhile, Sam and Daniel are seated in another home at another 
               dinner table.

                         Are you sure you've had enough to eat?
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Yes, it was, uh, it was delicious.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         You obviously don't have any trouble 
                         growing enough food.
 
               
                                     EVALLA
                         Everything in the dome is completely 
                         self-sufficient.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         What about power?

               
                                     PALLAN
                         We draw energy from geo-thermal vents 
                         located beneath the town. Tomorrow I 
                         can show you the-the generators.
 
               
                                     EVALLA
                         Pallan's one of the technicians who 
                         maintains the system.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Well, you're obviously very advanced, 
                         but you're level of architecture seems 
                         to...be out of step with your level 
                         of technology.
 
               
                                     EVALLA
                         Technology's what destroyed our world. 
                         The dome was created because industrial 
                         growth poisoned the air and the water. 
                         Our people were dying from disease and 
                         starvation so...the survivors made a 
                         deliberate choice to simplify their 
                         lives.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         We have our own environmental problems. 
                         Perhaps if we learned about your history, 
                         it might help us avoid a similar fate.
 
                         
               
                                     EVALLA
                         Well, the easiest way for you to learn 
                         about our history is through the link.
 
                         
               
               Daniel and Sam look at each other. Then Daniel turns back to 
               V.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Is that possible?

               
                                     EVALLA
                         Of course. (She takes her temple device 
                         off and hands it to Daniel.) Thousands 
                         of historical books are on file.
 
               
               Daniel looks the device over.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Uh...maybe that isn't such a good idea. 
                         (Pallan and Evalla look at her, puzzled.) 
                         We have no way of knowing if our brain 
                         physiology if compatible with the technology.
 
                         
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Ah...

               
                                     JACKSON
                         (handing the device back to Evalla) 
                         Thanks...maybe later.
 
               
               Elsewhere in the town, the Council Woman is sleeping in her bed. 
               Suddenly, she wakes up and we see that the device is still on 
               her temple. She gets out of bed, picks up a suitcase, puts it 
               on the bed and kneels down as she opens it. Then she looks up. 
               Next we see her exiting her home, carrying the suitcase. She 
               walks down and ally and through the barrier.
 
               
               COMMERCIAL BREAK

               
               Alien Planet - Day Two Jack wakes to see his hazmat helmet staring 
               him in the face.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Hello Nevin.

               
                                     NEVIN
                         I'm not Nevin. I'm Colonel O'Neill from 
                         Stargate Command.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right, Colonel O'Neill... (he sits 
                         up and flicks the face plate on the 
                         mask) ...will you please take off my 
                         hood?
 
               
               Nevin complies and then his dad comes into the room. We also 
               see that Teal'c is sitting in a chair in the same room.
 
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         Nevin, it's time for school. Go into 
                         your room and access your lessons.
 
                         
               
                                     NEVIN
                         (still clutching the hood) When I grow 
                         up, can I be an explorer?
 
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         We'll talk about it later.

               
               Elsewhere in the town, Sam and Pallan are walking.

               
                                     CARTER
                         So none of you has ever been outside 
                         the dome?
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Not in over 400 years. We monitor the 
                         levels of toxicity, but we've never 
                         actually seen it. What's it like?
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         It's not very pretty.

               
                                     PALLAN
                         I've seen images on the link of a great 
                         city with tall building made of glass 
                         and steel.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I'm afraid there's not much left but 
                         rubble.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         I suppose... (he bends down and picks 
                         up a rock) ...that's why they created 
                         this...
 
               
               He throws the rock down a short arched tunnel. More of the town 
               can be seen through the tunnel, but the rock passes through the 
               barrier and it becomes obvious the barrier is closer than Sam 
               had thought.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         So we're not constantly reminded of 
                         what happened.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         It's a pretty convincing illusion. I'd 
                         love to see how it's made.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Well, the control room's underground, 
                         but the entrance is this way. (He points 
                         in the direction opposite of they way 
                         he threw the stone.)
 
               
               Later, Sam and Pallan descend a staircase into the control room. 
               The technology in this room is a bit more advanced than the stuff 
               we see on the Prometheus, but not as advances as the stuff we 
               see on an Asgard ship.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         As you can see, Major, we haven't abandoned 
                         technology all together.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah.

               
               Elsewhere, Daniel and Evalla are walking.

               
                                     EVALLA
                         If using the link is out of the question, 
                         then this is your only option.
 
               
               She opens the door to a room that is filled with books. There 
               are books on shelves and books stacked on every available horizontal 
               surface. It appears as though no one has disturbed a one of them 
               in a very long time.
 
               
                                     EVALLA
                         Mmm...we don't have much need for books 
                         anymore. (She picks one up) These are 
                         all that's left from the old world.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         It's interesting, uhm...the writing's 
                         similar to a language we've encountered 
                         before.
 
               
                                     EVALLA
                         Can you translate it?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         With your help?

               
                                     EVALLA
                         Let's get started.

               
               Back in the control room, Pallan is showing Sam around.

               
                                     PALLAN
                         Atmospheric analysis, dome integrity... 
                         (he uses his hand to point to different 
                         computer displays) ...power utilization.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Very impressive.

               
                                     PALLAN
                         If you don't mind, I just have to check 
                         the coolant pressure. Please...
 
               
               He gestures, inviting Sam to further examine the displays he 
               has just shown her. He walks to another console. As she is looking 
               at the three displays, suddenly all three go black and then white 
               writing appears on the screen (like machine code). The same code 
               is on all three monitors.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Pallan... She turns to look at him, 
                         he doesn't respond.
 
               
               
                                     JACKSON
                         This looks like some kind of religious 
                         text...Evalla?
 
               
               She is sitting in a chair, motionless, staring off into space. 
               Daniel puts a hand on her shoulder.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Evalla...

               
               Back in the control room, Sam has not gotten a response from 
               Pallan, who is still standing still with his back toward Sam.
 
               
               
                                     CARTER
                         Pallan?

               
               She turns her attention back to the displays. Suddenly, they 
               all return to normal.
 
               
               In the book room, Evalla is back to normal too. She looks at 
               Daniel's hand and then up at Daniel.
 
               
                                     EVALLA
                         Yes?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         You okay?

               
                                     EVALLA
                         Of course...let me see.

               
               Daniel hands her the book he is holding.

               
               In the control room, Pallan finishes checking his readings and 
               walks back to Sam.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Did you see that?

               
                                     PALLAN
                         See what?

               
                                     CARTER
                         The screens changed. Th-they were filled 
                         with some sort of streaming code.
 
                         
               
                                     PALLAN
                         That's impossible. They always display 
                         the status of these specific systems.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Uh...I know what I saw, Pallan.

               
                                     PALLAN
                         I'm afraid you must be mistaken. He 
                         walks back to the other console.
 
               
               Later Sam and Daniel are walking in the garden area. They meet 
               Jack and Teal'c.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         So, what do we know?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Well, their technology's incredible. 
                         At least what's left of it. Right now, 
                         Pallan and I are trying to rig up a 
                         computer interface so I can download 
                         some of the specs.
 
               
               They notice people walking very near by. This prompts O'Neill 
               to walk away from them. The rest of SG-1 follows. Once again, 
               Sam and Jack are walking and Teal'c and Daniel are walking behind 
               them.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Do they wish anything in return?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Apparently not. They seem quite happy 
                         with their situation as it is.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Now, see, that makes no sense to me. 
                         These people live in a bubble.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Well, they have managed to survive for 
                         over 400 years.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Sometimes there is more to life than 
                         mere survival.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         We could offer them relocation.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yeah, I s'pose.

               
               Alien Planet - Council Chambers Today there are only the three 
               male Council members present.
 
               
                                     COUNCIL MAN #1
                         Are you suggesting we leave the dome?
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         We're just saying it's possible.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There are many suitable worlds where 
                         your people could live.
 
               
                                     COUNCIL MAN #3
                         But we have everything we need right 
                         here.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Except room to grow.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         We're talking about fresh water, fresh 
                         air, mountains, trees...
 
               
                                     COUNCIL MAN #1
                         We can experience all these things through 
                         the link.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         You gotta be kiddin' me.

               
                                     COUNCIL MAN #4
                         It is a very generous offer, Colonel, 
                         but this is our home.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         What about the other folks in the town? 
                         Some of them have to think differently.
 
                         
               
                                     COUNCIL MAN #4
                         The Council speaks for the town...and 
                         the Council's decision is unanimous.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Well, what about the other Council member? 
                         The woman that was here?
 
               
                                     COUNCIL MAN #4
                         Uh, there hasn't been a woman on the 
                         Council since the last election...and 
                         that was two years ago.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         What're you talkin' about? There was 
                         a woman sittin' there yesterday.
 
               
                                     COUNCIL MAN #1
                         Colonel, I can assure you the Council 
                         has always consisted of three members. 
                         The three Council members look at each 
                         other and then back to SG-1 in unison.
 
                         
               
               COMMERCIAL BREAK

               
               Alien Planet Sam catches up with the rest of SG-1 in the town 
               square.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I spoke to Pallan. He claims to have 
                         no memory of there ever being a fourth 
                         Council member.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         She was just there yesterday.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Maybe the link has something to do with 
                         this? If it can be used to download 
                         information directly into a people's 
                         brains, maybe it can also be used to 
                         alter their perceptions or memories.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Perhaps the Councilwoman opposed the 
                         others and they felt it necessary to 
                         be rid of her.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         So they erased her from existence? That 
                         seems a little harsh, don't you think?
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Well, the bottom line is we can't trust 
                         these people.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Well, Sir, I'd still like to finish 
                         my research on the dome technology.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Yeah, maybe there's something in the 
                         archive that can shed some light on 
                         this.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The behavior of the townspeople does 
                         seem odd, but they don't appear to be 
                         an immediate threat.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right...see what you can find out.
 
                         
               
               Later in the book room, Evalla comes in while Daniel is still 
               perusing books.
 
               
                                     EVALLA
                         How's it coming?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Well...I still can't find any historical 
                         reference to the time period when the 
                         dome was first created.
 
               
                                     EVALLA
                         By that time our people had begun using 
                         the link. It's possible not much written 
                         material survives from that era.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Let me ask you something, uhm...if you 
                         had the chance to-to leave the dome 
                         and, uh...and go live on another planet, 
                         would you take it?
 
               
                                     EVALLA
                         Pallan told me about the conversation 
                         you had with the Council.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Ah...and?

               
                                     EVALLA
                         We have everything we need right here.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         That's what they said.

               
                                     EVALLA
                         We hope that some day, the poison in 
                         the outside atmosphere will dissipate 
                         and we'll be able to reclaim the planet.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         But not in your lifetime.

               
                                     EVALLA
                         No.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         What about...children? I mean, don't 
                         you and Pallan want to have a family?
 
                         
               
                                     EVALLA
                         Of course.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         But there must be some sort of population 
                         controls.
 
               
                                     EVALLA
                         Each couple's allowed a maximum of two 
                         children.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         And you're okay with that?

               
                                     EVALLA
                         Limited resources dictate that we maintain 
                         the population at a certain level.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         How many people are we talking about 
                         here, exactly?
 
               
                                     EVALLA
                         At this precise moment? One thousand, 
                         three hundred and seventy-three.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         And what would happen if someone...you 
                         know, decided to break the rules and 
                         have more than two children?
 
               
                                     EVALLA
                         I don't know. No one ever has.

               
               In the control room, Sam has her laptop hooked up to a panel. 
               Pallan is working on the opposite side of the panel.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Try the interface now...

               
                                     CARTER
                         We got it.

               
               Pallen walks around and sits down next to Sam.

               
                                     PALLAN
                         You believe this technology will be 
                         useful on your world?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Why don't you and your wife come back 
                         with us and see for yourselves?
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Oh...

               
                                     CARTER
                         Just for a visit.

               
                                     PALLAN
                         Do you have oceans?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Oceans, deserts, rainforests...it would 
                         take a lifetime to see it all.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         It sounds wonderful.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Wait a minute... (pointing to her laptop) 
                         You said these were the power utilization 
                         figures, right?
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         That's right.

               
                                     CARTER
                         What's a normal variation?

               
                                     PALLAN
                         Between .01 and .07 percent.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Well, then we've got a problem. These 
                         levels are least 2% lower than when 
                         we came down here.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         No, that can't be. (He gets up and goes 
                         to his own power utilization display.) 
                         No, you're mistaken. These figures are 
                         within normal range.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Do you have the readings from this morning?
 
                         
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Of course. (He brings up the readings.) 
                         You see? No variation.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         This is wrong.

               
                                     PALLAN
                         These measurements are foreign to you.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Well, it doesn't mean I can't recognize 
                         a relative drop.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Major, I can access 400 years of recorded 
                         power utilization figures on the link. 
                         There's never been or than a 0.1% variation.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Hypothetically speaking, if there was...would 
                         it threaten the integrity of the force 
                         field?
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         I suppose it might. But it's never come 
                         up.
 
               
               In the garden, Jack and Teal'c are making their way to the MALP 
               for another transmission to the SGC. Kendrick comes running up 
               behind them.
 
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         Colonel O'Neill! Colonel, is it true, 
                         what they're saying? You've offered 
                         to take us through the Gate to another 
                         world?
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yeah, that's right.

               
                                     KENDRICK
                         Then Nevin and I will come with you. 
                         I see the way he is with you and I realize 
                         that Nevin deserves the chance for much 
                         more than this world can ever offer.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Are you certain? This is not a decision 
                         to be taken lightly.
 
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         I want my son to grow up in a world 
                         where the sky and the clouds aren't 
                         part of an illusion created by a computer.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Well, that's good enough for me.

               
               Later, in the control room, Sam is still working with the new 
               interface.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         (into her radio) Colonel, come in.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (over the radio) Go ahead.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Sir, I've been running some calculations 
                         here and I've discovered something.
 
                         
               
               We see Jack and Teal'c walking toward where the MALP was parked.
 
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         O'Neill...

               
               The MALP is no longer parked where they left it.

               
                                     CARTER
                         (over the radio) Sir, are you reading 
                         me?
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (into his radio) Carter, the MALP's 
                         gone?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Say again?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         The MALP...is no longer parked where 
                         we parked it.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It would appear someone does not wish 
                         us to communicate with Stargate Command.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Well, that's not our only problem. The 
                         dome is losing power. I notice a discrepancy 
                         with the output levels, but I wasn't 
                         sure because the computer record showed 
                         no change. So, I converted the units 
                         and compared the current levels with 
                         the readings I took yesterday when we 
                         first came through.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         And?

               
                                     CARTER
                         In the last 24 hours, there's been almost 
                         a 4% drop. Sir, if this continues, the 
                         dome will fail.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         How much time?

               
                                     CARTER
                         It's hard to say. But when it does, 
                         everyone here will die.
 
               
               COMMERCIAL BREAK

               
               Alien Planet - Day Two Continued Sam is still in the control 
               room. Suddenly, the computer monitors do the same thing they 
               did earlier. They go black and then the same streaming code appears 
               on all the screens at the same time. In the book room, Evalla 
               gets a strange look on her face. She turns and walks outside. 
               Daniel is startled from the book he's concentrating on as he 
               hears the door open.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Evalla?

               
               She does not respond, but continues on her way.

               
               In the control room, Sam notices the screen and goes to her laptop 
               to check the power utilization readout.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         (into her radio) Sir, the computer's 
                         giving me new information. The power 
                         level is definitely dropping.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         (over the radio) Major Carter, should 
                         we not warn the townspeople?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I'm not sure we're going to be able 
                         to convince them. The only evidence 
                         we have are the computer readings and...for 
                         some reason, Pallan couldn't see that 
                         they were changing.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Maybe he's in on it.

               
                                     CARTER
                         I don't think so. I think his memories 
                         are being altered and it's possible 
                         that the same hold true for everyone 
                         in this town.
 
               
               Meanwhile in the town square, Daniel had gone after Evalla.
 
               
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Evalla! (He picks up the pace to try 
                         an catch her.) Evalla!
 
               
               She continues as though she hasn't heard him. She goes down narrowed 
               passage and then takes a left. Daniel continues to follow. Up 
               ahead, he sees her turn right and then she is obscured from his 
               view. When he rounds the corner he sees a covered entrance to 
               a building. There is a door on the left at the end of the entrance. 
               Straight ahead is a arched area which echoes the arch he has 
               just passed through, but it has been walled off with bricks and 
               to the left is a set of window, both closed. There is no sign 
               of Evalla. He continues to the door and tries to open it. It 
               will not open. He then walks to the bricked in wall and discovers 
               that it is the barrier. He turns and frowns.
 
               
               Scene changes to Pallan's house (I think). The interior is pretty 
               dark and backlit by open windows. Jack, Sam, Teal'c and Daniel 
               are talking.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         And I called out to her and she just 
                         ignored me. It was like she was in some 
                         sort of trance or something.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Perhaps she was under the influence 
                         of the link.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         There's no telling what level of manipulation 
                         is possible.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         So...brainwashing?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Yeah, that's one way of putting it.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         We have to help these people. I mean, 
                         they're-they're being held against their 
                         will, they don't even know it.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Well, as long as they've got those...things 
                         on their faces, they're not gonna be 
                         convinced of anything.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Is it possible to disable the link?
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         It's part of the same computer system 
                         that controls the dome. If we tamper 
                         with it, we risk bringing the whole 
                         force field down. On the other hand, 
                         if I could use the computer to access 
                         the link, maybe I could reprogram the 
                         information that's being sent out.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         You mean do a little brainwashing of 
                         our own.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         The only problem is, I don't think I 
                         could do it without Pallan's help.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         If I can find historical evidence in 
                         the library that directly contradicts 
                         information available on the link, that 
                         might prove to at least some of these 
                         people that they're being lied to.
 
                         
               
                                     CARTER
                         Like records of the Council meetings. 
                         They would show that there used to be 
                         more than three members.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Exactly.

               
               Daniel looks at Jack. Jack seems to realize that they're finished 
               (almost like he just woke out of his own trance).
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         All right, you two do what you do... 
                         (He looks at his watch.) Teal'c you 
                         and I are late for a radio contact.
 
                         
               
               Teal'c picks up his staff weapon and follows Jack out. Jack and 
               Teal'c walk down one of the passages in the town. The pass by 
               an intersecting passage and Nevin comes running down that passage.
 
               
               
                                     NEVIN
                         Colonel O'Neill! Where are you going?
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         We're going back to the house. We need 
                         those special outfits we had.
 
               
                                     NEVIN
                         (pointing to his right) The house is 
                         this way.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You are mistaken. (Teal'c turns his 
                         head toward the direction they had been 
                         heading - directly in front of Nevin) 
                         It is in that direction.
 
               
                                     NEVIN
                         There's nothing over there. That's the 
                         edge of the dome. (Jack and Teal'c look 
                         at each other) Come on, I'll show you.
 
                         
               
               They follow Nevin. Next we see Nevin open a door and lead the 
               pair in. He goes over to a trunk in the room.
 
               
                                     NEVIN
                         Here it is. See? Right where you left 
                         it.
 
               
               Nevin brings the suit to Jack. Jack and Teal'c look a bit perplexed. 
               Teal'c walks to the door at the front and looks out. The house 
               does not appear as it did before. Jack takes off his cap and 
               scratches his head.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (to Teal'c) Hey...is this where we slept 
                         last night?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is not.

               
               Jack looks back at Nevin.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         What's goin' on here?

               
               Just then, Kendrick arrives through the door they entered earlier.
 
               
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         Colonel...are you going back to Earth 
                         now?
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         No. We were just gonna send a message. 
                         Don't worry, we're not leavin' without 
                         ya.
 
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         Excuse me?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Anyone who wants to leave is welcome 
                         to come with us.
 
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         'Why would I leave?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You have expressed a desire to live 
                         in a world where the sky was not artificial.
 
                         
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         You must have me mistaken for someone 
                         else.
 
               
               Teal'c and Jack look at each other.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Nevin...you wanted to be an explorer, 
                         right?
 
               
                                     NEVIN
                         (who is now standing right in front 
                         of his dad) I'm going to be a gardener, 
                         like my father.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You are under the influence of the link.
 
                         
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         What are you talking about?

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Those things on your head...you gotta 
                         lose 'em.
 
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         No, no.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Yes...they're messin' with your mind 
                         somehow. You've gotta...get rid of them.
 
                         
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         The link gives us everything we need.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Look, just...take it off for a minute. 
                         Just flick it off.
 
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         I can't. To be disconnected from the 
                         link would cause instant death.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Now, see, that's something you've never 
                         said before.
 
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         Colonel, I think you should leave now.
 
                         
               
               Town Exterior Sam is walking around.

               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (over the radio) Carter, what's your 
                         status?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         (into her radio) I'm on my way to the 
                         control room now.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Well, watch yourself. They got to Kendrick.
 
                         
               
               She looks around her and picks up the pace. Next we see her in 
               walking down the stairs to the control room. Pallan is there.
 
               
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Major, I've almost finished downloading 
                         the generator design.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Pallan, we need to talk.

               
                                     PALLAN
                         All right.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Do you remember earlier today, I told 
                         you I noticed a drop in the power levels?
 
                         
               
                                     PALLAN
                         I remember you being mistaken.

               
                                     CARTER
                         What about now? Do you notice any change?
 
                         
               
                                     PALLAN
                         (he looks back at the monitor) Power 
                         levels are constant.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         No, they're not. It's just that every 
                         time these screens are updated, the 
                         information on the link is updated as 
                         well. It alters your memory so you don't 
                         see what's happening.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Major, this is absurd.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Pallan...the dome is failing.

               
                                     PALLAN
                         I told you you're mistaken.

               
                                     CARTER
                         No. I am not mistaken. Now, if you don't 
                         help me warn the others, then you and 
                         Evalla and everyone in this city will 
                         die.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Who?

               
                                     CARTER
                         Evalla, your wife.

               
                                     PALLAN
                         Major...I don't know what's come over 
                         you but...I've never been married.
 
                         
               
               COMMERCIAL BREAK

               
               Alien Planet - Book Room Daniel is looking through documents. 
               He picks up a rather large set and starts looking through it. 
               It appears he has found something he can use and he leaves. Back 
               in the control room, Sam and Pallan are still at it.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I need you to disconnect yourself from 
                         the link
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         That's insane.

               
                                     CARTER
                         I know that you believe that removing 
                         that node from your forehead will kill 
                         you.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         I've known that since childhood.

               
                                     CARTER
                         But last night, Evalla removed hers 
                         and nothing happened.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         (getting more irritated) Who is this 
                         Evalla?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         (equally as frustrated) I told you. 
                         She's your wife.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Ach...

               
                                     CARTER
                         Your memories of her have been altered 
                         in the same way that you've been kept 
                         from realizing that the dome is deteriorating.
 
                         
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Major...

               
                                     CARTER
                         (keeps on talking) At first, I thought 
                         it was somebody on the Council who was 
                         responsible, but the changes are happening 
                         too quickly. I think it's automatic. 
                         The computer makes changes and then 
                         updates the memories of everyone in 
                         this town so no one's the wiser. Pallan...you 
                         have to disconnect.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         That would be suicide.

               
                                     CARTER
                         No. That's just a lie that's been planted 
                         by the computer. We need to reprogram 
                         the link to convince the others of what's 
                         happening, but I can't do it without 
                         you.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         No.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Sam! (Daniel comes down the stairs into 
                         the control room.) Got it.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         What is that?

               
                                     JACKSON
                         They're legal documents. All I can say 
                         is thank God for lawyers. When everyone 
                         else was converting to the link, they 
                         were still using good, old-fashioned 
                         paper. (He pulls out a few documents.) 
                         See, when the dome was first created, 
                         everyone signed a contract establishing 
                         communal land ownership rights. (He 
                         puts a piece of paper in front of Pallan.) 
                         Look at the number.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         No, that can't be.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         There were originally over a hundred 
                         thousand people living here.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         That's impossible. The dome isn't big 
                         enough to sustain that many.
 
               
                                     JACKSON
                         Not any more.

               
                                     CARTER
                         Oh, my God. All this time, I thought 
                         the power loss would cause the dome 
                         to fail. But the computer found a way 
                         to compensate...the dome is shrinking.
 
                         
               
                                     JACKSON
                         See...that's what happened to the MALP. 
                         It didn't go anywhere. It's right where 
                         we left it, except for now it's on the 
                         outside.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Now, wait a minute...if there were over 
                         100,000 people living here...where did 
                         they all go?
 
               
               Daniel gives him a look. He then turns to look at Sam who raises 
               her brows like she just got it.
 
               
               Outside the Dome Teal'c and Jack are back in hazmats, walking 
               through the fog.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         O'Neill...

               
               Jack joins Teal'c and kneels down to look at the bones Teal'c 
               has pointed out. They are human remains. Teal'c has moved on.
 
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There are other remains here but the 
                         bones have been eaten away by the corrosive 
                         atmosphere.
 
               
               Jack notices something and picks it up. It is one of the temple 
               link devices.
 
               
               Back in the control room, Sam is still trying to get Pallan to 
               help.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I understand why you're reluctant to 
                         believe us, Pallan. You've got things 
                         in your head that must seem like memories 
                         of a lifetime, but they're not. Just 
                         yesterday, you'd never even heard of 
                         the idea that disconnecting from the 
                         link could be fatal.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         You're lying.

               
                                     JACKSON
                         Look at these documents. They're over 
                         400 years old, they're written in your 
                         language. How could we fake this? Why 
                         would be fake this? The only reason 
                         they still exist is because the computer 
                         did not foresee outside interference. 
                         To anyone on the link, they're completely 
                         irrelevant.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         But why?

               
                                     CARTER
                         The computer is programmed to maintain 
                         the community. Individuals had to be 
                         sacrificed for the good of the whole. 
                         Only each time someone disappeared, 
                         no one noticed because all memory of 
                         them was erased. Please...
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         No...

               
                                     CARTER
                         It's all right... (she reaches out to 
                         take the device.)
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         No...I... (he raises his hand up, but 
                         doesn't stop her)
 
               
               She removes the link and he's stunned that he's still alive.
 
               
               
                                     CARTER
                         You see? (He smiles slightly.) Now, 
                         we need your help.
 
               
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (over the radio) Carter, what's your 
                         status?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Pallan's trying to access the link right 
                         now. If he can get in, we might be able 
                         to reprogram it.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Understood. We're comin' to you.

               
               We see that Jack and Teal'c are no longer wearing the hazmats. 
               They are walking in the garden area.
 
               
               Pallan comes around to the console Sam is sitting at and presses 
               keys. The screens go black and the streaming code appears again.
 
               
               
                                     PALLAN
                         What did I do?

               
                                     CARTER
                         It's another update.

               
               Out in the town square, we see the citizens stop moving and stare 
               off into space again. Then we see Kendrick and Nevin in their 
               house doing the same. Seconds later, they continue on.
 
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         Nevin, I want you to stay here.

               
                                     NEVIN
                         Father? Is Colonel O'Neill sick?

               
                                     KENDRICK
                         He is, but we're going to make him better.
 
                         
               
               Out in the town square, Jack and Teal'c have arrived and everything 
               is very deserted and quiet. Back in the control room, Pallan 
               has stopped typing and has pulled back.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         What is it?

               
                                     PALLAN
                         These systems are so complicated. Without 
                         access to the link, I'm not sure I know 
                         what I'm doing.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         Pallan, you've been doing this you're 
                         whole life. You're just gonna have to 
                         try to remember the old-fashioned way.
 
                         
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Right.

               
               He moves to another console and closes a hatch on the way there. 
               He sits down and begins typing again. Meanwhile Jack and Teal'c 
               are exploring the town, weapons ready. They turn a corner and 
               see a lot of citizens coming toward them. They turn back.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Maybe not that way.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Agreed.

               
               The turn another corner and see more people coming. Kendrick 
               is leading this group. They decide to continue straight rather 
               than turn.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Let's keep moving. (Then into his radio) 
                         Uh, Carter, we may have a little problem 
                         here.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         They're being controlled by the computer, 
                         Sir.
 
               
               Teal'c and Jack pick up the pace, but they are still being pursued 
               by the two groups of people. They turn another corner and see 
               their advance blocked by another group. Jack points down the 
               same entrance Evalla had gone into when she disappeared through 
               the barrier. Jack raises his weapon as Teal'c explores the entrance. 
               He taps the same wall Daniel had and discovers the barrier.
 
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         O'Neill...

               
                                     JACKENDRICK
                         (quietly to Teal'c) Heeyy...come here.
 
                         
               
               He aims his weapon at Kendrick. Teal'c rejoins him at the mouth 
               of the entrance, pointing his weapon in the opposite direction 
               from Jack.
 
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         Everything's going to be all right, 
                         Colonel. (he extends his hand and reveals 
                         two devices) These are for you.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         I don't think so.

               
                                     KENDRICK
                         You've been disconnected from the link. 
                         You're not well. Let us help you.
 
                         
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         (into his radio) Carter...now would 
                         be a good time.
 
               
               Back in the control room, Pallan is typing away and then stops.
 
               
               
                                     PALLAN
                         I'm in. Now, what do I tell them?

               
                                     CARTER
                         There's no time to explain everything. 
                         Try to erase all memory of us completely.
 
                         
               
               Pallan nods and starts typing.

               
               In the town, many people are moving closer and closer to Teal'c 
               and Jack. Jack is still staring down the site of his P-90, which 
               is aimed at Kendrick.
 
               
                                     O'NEILL
                         Don't make me shoot you.

               
                                     KENDRICK
                         You're not yourself, Colonel. Without 
                         the link, your mind is playing tricks 
                         on you.
 
               
               In the control room, Pallan moves to another console and types 
               on it. He steps back and watches and the screens go black and 
               the streaming code appears again.
 
               
               In the town, the people stop and stare again. Seconds later, 
               they wake up.
 
               
                                     KENDRICK
                         (to Jack) Who are you?

               
               In the control room, Pallan is stunned.

               
                                     PALLAN
                         I did it. He takes a deep breath and 
                         exhales.
 
               
               Sam smiles up at him.

               
               Later... We see people dressed in hazmats walking in the garden 
               area. They are meeting SG personnel at the barrier. The SG people 
               are not in hazmat gear. Sam and Pallan (also not in hazmat suits) 
               are following a group of people.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         We ran some tests on the geo-thermal 
                         vents that supply the town's power. 
                         Looks like they started cool about 200 
                         years ago. The dome started shrinking 
                         some time after that. We should have 
                         the whole town relocated in a couple 
                         of days.
 
               
                                     PALLAN
                         I think I'm going to miss this garden. 
                         How much longer will the force field 
                         last?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         It's difficult to say. I mean even with 
                         less and less surface area to maintain, 
                         the power would have failed eventually.
 
                         
               
                                     PALLAN
                         And in the meantime, more of us would 
                         have disappeared.
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         You still don't remember her, do you?
 
                         
               
                                     PALLAN
                         No. You know, in a way, I envy the others. 
                         They all, they all must have lost somebody, 
                         but I'm the only one who knows for sure. 
                         And how do you mourn someone when you 
                         can't even picture her face?
 
               
                                     CARTER
                         I'm sorry, Pallan. I wish I could help.
 
                         
               
                                     PALLAN
                         Maybe you can. (he laughs)

               
                                     CARTER
                         How?

               
                                     PALLAN
                         Tell me about her.

               
               Sam nods.

               
               THE END
