                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 414

                                   "SERPENT'S VENOM"

                                           By

                                     Peter DeLuise




               We begin on the lovely planet of Chulak. A child walks thru a 
               tent.
 
               
                                     CHILD
                         Father, he's coming!

               
                                     FATHER
                         Yes, I know. You are not to be here.
 
                         
               
                                     CHILD
                         But, Father ---

               
                                     FATHER
                         (A Serpent guard) Go! Now!

               
               The child leaves , meeting Teal'C at the door. Teal'C removes 
               his hat and smiles at the serpent guard. Another man is there. 
               He has had his tattoo removed, but the scar shows that he was 
               also a serpent guard.
 
               
                                     FATHER
                         After all this time, it is really you.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Ma'kar of the Gomai Foothills. (He bows)
 
                         
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You are the one called Rak'Nor.

               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         (Shaking Teal'C hand) It is an honor 
                         to finally meet you.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         And I , you.

               
                                     MA'KAR
                         We have heard much of your return to 
                         Chulak.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is time for Jaffa to stop whispering 
                         about freedom, and begin to show our 
                         true power.
 
               
                                     MA'KAR
                         A power we can only hope is greater 
                         than that of the gods.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         FALSE gods.

               
                                     MA'KAR
                         Their power is real, and stronger than 
                         ever. Even Heru-Ur, and the other System 
                         Lords fear Apophis. (AQ! Says He! He!) 
                         He commands the vast army of Sokar.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         An army of Jaffa.

               
                                     MA'KAR
                         You KNOW of what happened here on Chulak 
                         at the hands of Apophis.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Yes, I know how many were slaughtered. 
                         But, I also know that those left alive 
                         are ready to rise against him. The Jaffa 
                         are the foundation upon which the false 
                         gods have built their empires. We can 
                         tear them down.
 
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         To do so, We will have to fight our 
                         own kind.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         As the Goa'Uld have forced us to do 
                         in their names for countless generations. 
                         Only now, we will fight for the freedom 
                         of ALL Jaffa.
 
               
                                     MA'KAR
                         Rak'Nor has the loyalty of a great many 
                         here on Chulak.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         So, Bra'Tac has heard from you, and 
                         I from him. It is the word of our friend 
                         Ma'Kar that has brought me here tonight. 
                         In their hearts, many Jaffa believe 
                         as we do. Those with the strength and 
                         the courage must speak out. We must 
                         fear the Goa'Uld no longer. Those who 
                         wish to join our cause must be united. 
                         (Teal'C's 2 companions nervously look 
                         @ each other) Kol'Na of the High Cliffs 
                         Hak'Nor of the Cordi Plains have already 
                         agreed to meet at the Chapa Groves tomorrow.
 
                         
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         Then I will --- meet with THEM as well. 
                         (Teal'C smiles and nods his head) And 
                         this (Stands up) --- blasphemous rebellion 
                         will finally be crushed. (Teal'C looks 
                         confused) Hash'Ak Cree! (Teal'C stands 
                         and is shot by another Jaffa at the 
                         door with a ZAT gun!) (He falls, shaking) 
                         (Ma'Kar is emotionless) Shol'Va!
 
               
               OPENING CREDITS!

               
               The next shot goes to the gateroom. The camera is scanning the 
               monitors, which indicate that a traveler is coming. Klaxons are 
               going off. General Hammond, Sam, and Jacob are running down the 
               steps. The gate is dialing. It opens.

                         Receiving IDC transmission. It's the 
                         Tok'Ra.

                         (Walking in the room) Teal'C?

               
                                     SAM
                         Tok'Ra.

               
                                     JACK
                         Too bad.

               
                                     TECH
                         There's no traveler en route, Sir, but 
                         there's a transmission being sent.
 
                         
               
                                     JACOB
                         Looks like my vacation is over. (The 
                         taped transmission is being played back) 
                         Thanks to our good friend, Tannith, 
                         we were able to intercept this conversation 
                         between Apophis & Heru-Ur. It took place 
                         less than an hour ago.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         (Listening to the Goa'Uld) Sounds like 
                         they've agreed to meet.
 
               
                                     SELMACK
                         (No caps, because, although he's a snake 
                         head, he's not a Goa'Uld. When you see 
                         caps, I'm not yelling at you, it's just 
                         a Goa'Uld talking, OK? When Selmack 
                         is talking, I'll specify it same as 
                         with Jacob.) Currently, Heru-Ur is aligned 
                         with the System Lords against Apophis.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Or so the System Lords presume.

               
                                     SELMACK
                         Exactly. An alliance between Apophis 
                         and Heru-Ur could overwhelm all the 
                         other system lords combined.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         And that would be --- bad?

               
                                     SELMACK
                         One enemy is easier to target than many. 
                         Our spies believe that Apophis has agreed 
                         to the meeting because he is willing 
                         to use such an alliance to topple the 
                         system lords. Afterwards, he will deal 
                         with Heru-Ur. If he succeeds ---
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Galactic badness! Huge!

               
                                     DANNY
                         So, what do we do?!

               
                                     SAM
                         Find a way to sabotage the alliance. 
                         (She types something, and stuff comes 
                         on the screen)
 
               
                                     SELMACK
                         Doctor Jackson, Have you seen symbols 
                         like this before?
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Well, it looks similar to Phoenician 
                         letters, but I can't be sure.
 
               
                                     SELMACK
                         We believe it is a technical manual. 
                         None of our Tok'Ra linguists could translate 
                         it.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Um, excuse my denseness, but --- what 
                         does this have to do with --- anything?
 
                         
               
                                     SELMACK
                         The hatred and mistrust between Apophis 
                         and Heru-Ur goes back a long time.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         So, if we can get them to fight each 
                         other ---
 
               
                                     SELMACK
                         They both control the 2 largest armies 
                         of the Goa'Uld. A war between them would 
                         decimate both sides, and return the 
                         balance of power back to the system 
                         lords. Which, for now, is much more 
                         preferable to one all-powerful Goa'Uld.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         Wait, I think I've got it! It's uh --- 
                         3 to the blue, 4 to the orange, and 
                         --- and 3 to the blue. Sounds like some 
                         sort of color coated combination for 
                         a lock.

                         Excellent! We may have a chance now. 
                         (To Sam) If you will accompany me ---
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         AH! Wait a minute! Just--- stop, hold 
                         it. If you're about to say you're gonna 
                         explain along the way , I'm gonna lose 
                         it! I've just about had it with the 
                         way the Tok'Ra do business. I wanna 
                         know EXACTLY what we're dealing with 
                         here. Every mission detail you've got 
                         right now, or we go NOWHERE!
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         (Smiling) I was gonna tell ya, Jack. 
                         (LOL@ JACOB!!!!)
 
               
                                     JACK
                         (Quietly) OK! Never mind.

               
                                     DANNY
                         The meeting will be taking place at 
                         a region of space known as the Tobin 
                         System. The Tobin Civilization, originating 
                         from Earth thousands of years ago, has 
                         been extinct for a number of centuries, 
                         but one of their legacies is the equivalent 
                         of a large mine field in space.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         As close as you can get to neutral territory, 
                         Sir.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         The mines, originally designed to protect 
                         the planet will actually hone in on 
                         a wide variety of energy signals, including 
                         that of Goa'Uld weaponry.
 
               
                                     GH
                         So, if either Heru-Ur or Apophis decided 
                         to open fire, they would be destroyed 
                         by the mines.?
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         We'll take the cargo ship I came in. 
                         If we leave immediately, we can reach 
                         the minefield before the meeting, and 
                         reprogram the mine to hit Apophis's 
                         ship.
 
               
                                     GH
                         So, he'll thing Heru-Ur's behind it?
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Exactly.

               
                                     JACOB
                         The problem is , the mines are in constant 
                         motion. Repositioning themselves randomly.
 
                         
               
                                     GH
                         So, how can you reprogram them?

               
                                     JACK
                         That's a little bit of a concern for 
                         me, (Looks at Jacob) Sir.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         The mines have sophisticated inertial 
                         engines that are unaffected by gravitational 
                         conditions.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Basically, we should be able to safely 
                         use the cargo ship's rings to pull a 
                         mine inside.
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         At which point, I'll pattern the ship 
                         to match it's movements.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         The Tok'Ra have what they believe is 
                         the Tobin manual to how the mines work.
 
                         
               
                                     JACOB
                         Yeah, unfortunately, certain aspects 
                         of the translation have previously eluded 
                         us. Now, with Dr. Jackson's help, we 
                         can use the manual to reprogram the 
                         mine to hone in on a specific energy 
                         signal. One of our operatives aboard 
                         Apophis's ship will have planted a beacon 
                         that will broadcast that energy signal.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         The mine will think that Apophis's ship 
                         is firing a weapon, move towards it, 
                         and explode.
 
               
                                     GH
                         Sounds very risky.

               
                                     JACK
                         Insane might be another word. (Looks 
                         at Sam) (Sam smiles at Jack)
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Obviously, I'm gonna need Dr. Jackson, 
                         and there might be some complicated 
                         mathematical calculations to be done, 
                         Sam would be a big help, too. (Jack 
                         clears his throat) Of course, Colonel 
                         O'Neill is --- always fun to have around. 
                         (Jack grins, then looks at Jacob) The 
                         timing is critical, George.
 
               
                                     GH
                         Then, you have a go.

               
               Teal'c is being pulled into a room by Rak'Nor and another Jaffa. 
               They shackle his hands. Rak'Nor throws water on Teal'C's face.
 
               
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         Do not think your punishment is over, 
                         Shol'Va!
 
               
                                     GOA'ULD 
                         (In caps, because he is a Goa'Uld, and 
                         he sounds like he's yelling, OK? I'm 
                         NOT yelling @ you.) BACK AWAY! WELCOME 
                         TEAL'C! I AM TER'OK. (You see his head, 
                         he has NO tattoo, so he's not a Jaffa. 
                         His voice echo's so, he IS a Goa'Uld.) 
                         (He does a bad thing with a taser, involving 
                         Junior, that's all I'm saying, if you 
                         didn't see it, and want to know, mail 
                         me privately. I'll just say, he's hurting 
                         Teal'C.) (The 2 Jaffa are kneeling) 
                         WHO DO YOU SUPPOSE IS MORE WELL-KNOW 
                         (Punches Teal'C) AMONG JAFFA? YOU --- 
                         (laughs evilly) OR I? (To Rak'Nor) TER'OK 
                         OR THE SHOL'VA?
 
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         Many know of Teal'C, but all Jaffa fear 
                         you, My Lord.
 
               
                                     TER'OK
                         AFTER ALL, I HAVE BEEN AROUND, MUCH, 
                         MUCH LONGER. AND FROM THE LOOKS OF THINGS, 
                         I WILL BE AROUND LONG AFTER YOU'RE GONE. 
                         (Teal'C spits in his face) (He wipes 
                         the spit from his face, and tastes it, 
                         spiting out in disgust) FROM THIS MOMENT 
                         ON, EVERY TEAR YOU SHED --- WILL BE

                         GREAT AND POWERFUL TEAL'C REALLY WAS 
                         BEFORE HE DIED. THEY'LL SEE HOW HE CAME 
                         TO UNDERSTAND HOW WRONG HE WAS ABOUT 
                         THE GOA'ULD. THEY WILL SEE YOU--- PRAY

                         Jacob, do you really think the Goa'Uld 
                         are stupid enough to fire on each other 
                         in a mine field?
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         No, and we don't want them to. The ultimate 
                         goal is to get them into an all-out 
                         war, where both their fleets will be 
                         seriously weakened.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         You think that's gonna happen?

               
                                     JACOB
                         If he thinks Heru-Ur's ambushing him, 
                         Apophis will most likely retreat. However, 
                         his next move will be to order his armies 
                         to attack Heru-Ur's planet.

                         I had the bulk head removed. Once we've 
                         moved the mine inside, we're gonna need 
                         all the room we can get.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         What about the escape pods?

               
                                     JACOB
                         If that mine touches anything in here, 
                         the escape pods aren't gonna do us any 
                         good.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         (A few seconds later) (To him self) 
                         Oh.
 
               
               Scene of ship flying in Hyper-space. Danny's sitting on the floor 
               reading with an ink pen in his mouth. A whole buncha books are 
               on the floor. Sam's reading a book also. Jack's playing with 
               the Velcro on his watch. He looks at Sam over his shoulder, next 
               to him.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Do you understand any of that?

               
                                     SAM
                         It's all Phoenician to me, Sir. (She 
                         smiles. He frowns)
 
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         Drink! It is only water. Do you not 
                         drink because you wish to die sooner? 
                         (Teal'C looks at the recorder) It is 
                         not recording now. You will not appear 
                         weak by quenching your thirst. (Teal'C 
                         looks at him in the eye) Surely, you 
                         must realize that Ter'Ok will not let 
                         you die before he has gotten what he 
                         wants from you. I swear on my father's 
                         name that this is only water. (Teal'C 
                         puts his head down. Rak'Nor walks away 
                         from him)
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         What is the name of your father?

               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         (Turns) Swearing on his name means nothing 
                         if you do not know who he was. My father 
                         was called Delnor. (Throws the cup)
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         (Thinks) I know that name!

               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         Yes, when you were first prime, you 
                         spared his life after Apophis ordered 
                         him killed.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I remember.

               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         When you turned against Apophis, my 
                         father believed it was a sign. He spoke 
                         out against the gods, and supported 
                         you. He seared the mark of the serpent 
                         from my forehead. He --- He said I was 
                         free!
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You are!

               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         Other Jaffa worriers began to believe. 
                         Like my father, they followed Bra'Tac, 
                         who said what you had done would begin 
                         a Jaffa rebellion. He said, that one 
                         day, all Jaffa would be free from enslavement 
                         at the hands of the Goa'Uld.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         He spoke of the truth.

               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         No! It was blasphemy! The Goa'Uld are 
                         GODS! Look at yourself now! Why will 
                         you not admit it?!
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Why do you not believe as your father 
                         believes?
 
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         My father believes nothing anymore! 
                         He is dead! My father was a stupid fool, 
                         and Apophis killed my whole family because 
                         of it. He who died him self , and was 
                         reborn. Returning to slay Sokar --- 
                         He with the power to slaughter millions 
                         in a instant. He commands the greatest 
                         army the Goa'Uld have ever known, how 
                         could he be anything BUT a god?! I was 
                         fortunate enough to realize that in 
                         time to save myself. (The door opens)
 
                         
               
                                     TOR'AK
                         LISTEN TO RAK'NOR, TEAL'C! (The Jaffa 
                         kneel again, he turns on the recording 
                         device) NO ONE CAN HELP YOU BUT YOURSELF! 
                         NOT EVEN BRA'TAC LASTED THIS LONG. (Smiling) 
                         (Teal'c looks at him with a sorrowful 
                         expression) WITH PITYFUL TEARS STREAMING 
                         DOWN HIS FACE, HE ADMITED WE WERE ALL 
                         POWERFUL GODS.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         He would die first!

               
                                     TOR'AK
                         HE DID DIE , TEAL'C. BUT NOT FIRST. 
                         FIRST, HE PRAYED TO ME --- PRAYED TO 
                         THE GOA'ULD FOR FORGIVENESS. AS YOU 
                         WILL! (He motioned for Rak'Nor to remove 
                         Teal'C's black tee shirt! Excuse me 
                         while I drool! Yummy! Shirtless Teal'C!) 
                         (Teal'C body shows burn marks over Junior 
                         and in other places, no more details) 
                         ( The torture continues) 
                         (Teal'C appears to pass out)
 
               
               The ship comes out from Hyper-speed, and approached the planet.

                         We've reached the Tobin System. (Sam 
                         and Danny walk over from the ring area, 
                         Jack was sitting against the control 
                         panel in back of the stick.)
 
               
                                     SAM
                         WOW! That's a lot of mines!

               
                                     JACOB
                         Hundreds of thousands. Prepare to activate 
                         the rings. (Sam presses a sequence on 
                         the control panel.) (Jacob puts something 
                         on his head)
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Jacob, what's with the --- ear thing?

                         It's a heads-up display that'll help 
                         me fly the ship while keeping the mine 
                         centered in the hold.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         And --- how hard is that gonna be?
 
                         
               
                                     JACOB
                         Well, considering what I have to avoid 
                         out there, Hard. (Jack and Daniel look 
                         worrily at each other) (The machine 
                         shows he's honed in on a mine) Clear 
                         the rings! (Jack and Danny go kick the 
                         books off of the rings) (The machine 
                         shows a lock on the mine) Now, Sam. 
                         (Sam presses the button, and the mine 
                         is brought up to the ship.) Alright! 
                         Get on it! (Sam gathers the equipment, 
                         while both Danny and Jack have the cutest 
                         "Oh, My GOD!" Expressions on their faces!) 
                         (Jack's looking under the mine, while 
                         Danny's walking around it, looking at 
                         the exterior)

                                     JACK
                         What?

               
                                     JACOB
                         What? Don't you recognize the symbols?
 
                         
               
               Sam looks confused.

               
                                     DANNY
                         What symbols?! (Jack picks up his head 
                         as if to say, "Tell me you're kidding!"
 
                         
               
               Nice shot of Teal'C's naked, muscular back!

                         LATE. (He does some creative stuff with 
                         a ribbon device. He's not as nice as 
                         Apophis and Osiris was to Danny.) (Yummy 
                         shot of Teal'C's muscular arms as his 
                         head is thrown backwards) (To'Rak is 
                         laughing) ONE SECOND LONGER, AND YOU 
                         WOULD BE DEAD! WHY ADMIT THE GOA'ULDS 
                         ARE GODS? WHY DO I WASTE MY TIME? (Looks 
                         at Teal'C, then holds Teal'C chin up 
                         forcefully) BECAUSE IT IS THE TRUTH! 
                         Another great shot of Teal'C 's back) 
                         (Teal'C grunts) I DO THIS FOR ONE REASON. 
                         NOT TO BREAK YOU! NOT TO TORTURE YOU! 
                         (Whispers) I DO THIS TO SAVE YOU. MAYBE 
                         YOU DO NOT FEAR ME, OR EVEN DEATH IT 
                         SELF, BUT YOU SHOULD FEAR WHAT AWAITS 
                         BEYOND IF YOU DIE THIS WAY. SHA MEL 
                         KALLAH! (Laughing) SAY WHAT NEEDS TO 
                         BE SAID! TO DELIVER YOUR SOUL, AND THE 
                         SOULS OF ALL THOSE THAT HAVE EMBRASED

                         yummy body showing) (He must have said 
                         something to really piss the Goa'Uld 
                         off, because he hits the recording device

                         There should be a panel that opens and

                         Can you raise the bomb any higher? (She 
                         lays down, and gets under the hovering

                         I don't know how. If you enter the wrong 
                         combination, (Jacob looks to the front, 
                         where Jack is shooing the mines outside

                         Apophis is already here. If we release 
                         the mine now, and it explodes, the mission 
                         will be ruined.

                         great, but not great enough to match 
                         the collective army of the system lords.

                         things are at stake here. He's your 
                         friend, I know. But we've both had to 
                         deal with losses like this in battle 
                         situations. Tok'Ra operatives have already 
                         given their lives, and others are at 
                         great risk on those ships right now 
                         --- (While Jacob is saying this, Jack 
                         has that same look he gave Sam in D&C, 
                         and he appears to be blinking back tears. 
                         He cares for Teal'C a lot. He's licking 
                         his lips, and swallowing hard.) All 
                         for the sake of this mission. I'm sorry, 
                         Colonel, but Teal'C is expendable. (Jack's

                         done! (The mine closes almost hitting 
                         the pair.)
 
               
                                     SAM
                         We're done! (She slids from under the 
                         mine, Danny rolls to his feet.)
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         All right! I have to deploy. (Jack still 
                         has the stoic , emotionless look on 
                         his face, and watery eyes)
 
               
                                     JACK
                         If they start shooting at each other 
                         ---
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         They'd better not yet. We're still in 
                         the middle of this minefield. Deploy. 
                         (The rings grab the mine, and send it 
                         out of the ship.)
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Nothing's happening. (Danny opens a 
                         book, and looks thru the pages)
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         Our operative could have been compromised.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         Or, we reprogrammed the mine wrong. 
                         (The Carters look at him) (He looks 
                         between them, then loudly closes the 
                         book.) No! --- I'm --- sure we reprogrammed 
                         --- the mine --- right.

                         ONAK LA HASSA , SLEL APOPHIS. (To Tor'Ak) 
                         SEND THE SHOL'VA TO LORD APOPHIS.
 
                         
               
                                     JACOB
                         Apophis has agreed to the alliance.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Dad, Teal'C risked his life to save 
                         all of us when we came to rescue you 
                         on Netu. You OWE him. We all do.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Wait, how is Heru-Ur gonna transport 
                         Teal'C to Apophis's ship?
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         He would probably use rings.

               
                                     SAM
                         Well, then we can save Teal'C the same 
                         way that he saved us --- by intercepting 
                         the matter stream!
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         It won't work while the ship is in stealth.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Then uncloak it.

               
                                     JACOB
                         It would take some pretty fancy flying.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         (Looks at Jacob) (Hands him the headpiece) 
                         It's you ship!
 
               
               Teal'C, pretty badly beaten up, takes a sip of water held by 
               Rak'Nor.
 
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         I've never seen anyone endure such torture! 
                         Yet, none of it comes CLOSE to what 
                         Apophis will do to you. He will kill 
                         you 1,000 times!
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         (Weakly) Of that I am certain.

               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         And you will NEVER admit that he's a 
                         god?!
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         (Looks at the young jaffa) Never!

               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         You are --- either insane, or ---

               
                                     TER'OK
                         TAKE HIM DOWN! THE SHOL'VA IS TO BE 
                         TRANSPORTED TO APOPHIS! (The other Jaffa 
                         unshackles Teal'C's hand) (Teal'C gets 
                         up, and elbows the Jaffa, who's trying 
                         to hold him from behind.) (Ter'Ak takes 
                         his ribbon device, and throws Teal'C 
                         and the jaffa across the room.) WHAT 
                         DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING --- SHOL'VA?!?!?! 
                         (He pulls an Amunet from FIAD with Teal'C, 
                         putting the light on Teal'C's tattoo.)
 
                         
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         My lord, you are KILLING him!

               
                                     TER'OK
                         I WILL NOT BE DENIED THE SATISFACTION 
                         OF WATCHING HIM DIE AT LEAST ONCE!
 
                         
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         (Looking at Teal'C) My lord --- (He 
                         takes the Taser, and puts it in Tor'Ak's 
                         neck  He must have killed the symbiote, 
                         because the Goa'Uld fell down.) (He 
                         looks down on Teal'C, who looks up at 
                         him , confused.)
 
               
               The matter stream connects the two mother ships. Jacob does some 
               fancy flying after uncloaking the cargo ship. They pass thru 
               the stream, and Sam and Jack look to the back of the ship for 
               Teal'C, who doesn't appear. They Missed him! The streams disconnect.
 
               
               
                                     JACK
                         What happened?

               
                                     JACOB
                         We missed him!

               
                                     SAM
                         So, what now?

               
                                     JACOB
                         We'd better get out of here!

               
                                     HERU-UR'S JAFFA
                         My lord, a cargo ship attempted to intercept 
                         the matter stream.
 
               
                                     HERU-UR
                         (Standing) WHAT?!?!?!?!

               
               A serpent guard, OK, someone who APPEARS to be a Serpent guard, 
               presses a button on his arm. I'm gonna assume that he's the Tok'Ra 
               operative!
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         It looks like you programmed the mine 
                         right! It's gone straight for Apophis's 
                         ship.
 
               
               The Serpent guards bring Ter'Ok to my lord. 

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         WHAT IS THIS?!

               
                                     SARPENT GUARD
                         Heru-Ur transported HIM instead of the 
                         Shol'Va.
 
               
               Apophis does NOT look happy! He's so cute when he's mad. BOOM! 
               The mine hits Apophis's ship.
 
               
                                     SERPENT GUARD
                         Heru-Ur attacks!

                         YOU DARE TO ATTACK ME?!
 
               
                                     HERU-UR

                         NOT SEND ME THE SHOL'VA?!
 
               
                                     JACK
                         We gotta go back for Teal'C.

               
                                     JACOB
                         And do what?

               
                                     JACK
                         Something!

               
                                     JACOB
                         It's too late.

               
               Everyone freaks out, as about 10 mother ships appear around Apophis's 
               ship. Heru-Ur's like Uh-Oh! 
 
               
                                     JACOB
                         That's NOT possible!

               
                                     JACK
                         Apparently, it is.

               
                                     JACOB
                         The Goa'Uld have never been able to 
                         cloak an entire mother ship before, 
                         let alone an entire fleet!
 
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         CREE! HERU-UR! SHEL PAC HERAC APOPHIS!
 
                         
               
               Heru-Ur looks down, then up again. A glider is seen escaping 
               from the ship. Apophis shoots 8 shots into Heru-Ur's ship, blowing 
               it up. (Every body now, GOOOOOOOOOO Apophis! )
 
               
                                     SAM
                         They're protecting Apophis's ship!
 
                         
               
                                     JACOB
                         They're allowing him to escape. The 
                         sensors are picking up a glider that 
                         seemed to have escaped from Heru-Ur's 
                         ship before it exploded.

                         I asked him which god he worshiped, 
                         and he answered with a Tok'Ra password.

                         I am the Jaffa who helped Teal'C escape.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         How do we know that?

               
               Scene goes to glider.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is good to hear your voice, O'Neill.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         (Sam smiles) Glad ya made it, Teal'C. 
                         (BIG smile)
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         As am I.

               
                                     JACOB
                         We can rendezvous on the third moon 
                         of Tishner.
 
               
                                     RAK'NOR
                         We will meet you there.

               
                                     DANNY
                         Well, I guess we stopped the alliance.
 
                         
               
                                     SELMACK
                         Unfortunaly, it is the worse possible 
                         result.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         No war.

               
                                     SELMACK
                         No. We could not have predicted that 
                         Apophis would bring a clocked fleet 
                         into the minefield.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         So what now?

               
                                     SELMACK
                         Apophis will easily absorb Heru-Ur's 
                         forces into his own. He is now a bigger 
                         threat than ever before.
 
               
               The three humans look at each other with worried expressions.
 
               
               
               THE END
