                                Katharyn Michaelian Powers




               Offworld

               
               A mothership is chasing a glider

               
               Down on the planet, the team are waiting by the gate

               
               
               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Shouldn't they be here by now?

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Yes.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I do not believe the Tok'ra would mislead 
                         us.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, assuming it was the Tok'ra who 
                         sent us the message to meet them here 
                         in the first place. I mean all we really 
                         received was a set of co-ordinates.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         But on our radio frequencies, who else 
                         would send us a signal like that
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You know I'm not really too crazy about, 
                         this don't call us we'll call you policy.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There!

               
               
               
               They all look up and see the glider coming in fast

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Cover up!!

               
               
               
               The glider crashes and the team run over. Someone is crawling 
               away and as he looks at Jack, we see it is Apophis
 
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Holy Buckets

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         help me.

                         Well.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Wow! Is that who I think it is?

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Tau'ri please

                                     SAM
                         Teal'c! Apophis is much more valuable 
                         to us alive than dead.

               Gliders are heading their way

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Oy. Alright, Dial us up, get us out 
                         of here!
 
               
                                     SAM
                         What are they doing?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They wish to take Apophis alive.

                         Colonel?

               
                                     JACK
                         General Hammond.... Apophis. Apophis. 
                         General Hammond.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         We've met.

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         I demand Kel'mac!

               
               
               
               Jack looks at Daniel

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm not really sure but I think what 
                         he's asking for is...
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Sanctuary.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Right.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Why?

               
                                     JACK
                         I think some rival Goa'uld just kicked 
                         his ass.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         There were several other death gliders 
                         in pursuit when we took him prisoner, 
                         sir.
 
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         I demand Kel'mac

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         You're not in a position to demand anything, 
                         sir. Lock him up.
 
               
                                     JANET
                         Sir, with all due respect, he is badly 
                         injured he is not going to be any use 
                         to you if we don't get him to the OR 
                         right now.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Do what you need to keep him alive doctor. 
                         We got a lot of questions that need 
                         answers.
 
               
                                     JANET
                         Yes sir. OK lets move him. Let him start 
                         on two IV's and I wanna run ringer's 
                         lactate wide open. Lets go.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I want four SF's posted at all times, 
                         if he attempts to escape, you're authorized 
                         to do what ever is necessary to stop 
                         him.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         We'll debrief at 1100hrs.

               
                                     JACK
                         Yes sir.

               
               
               
               Infirmary

               
               Apophis is strapped to a bed

               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         Both femurs were smashed and there was 
                         eternal bleeding, Surgery and transfusions 
                         have stabilized him for now.
 
               
               
               
               Hammond, Janet and the team are watching him from the observation 
               room
 
               
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The Goa'uld symbiote within him will 
                         repair those injuries
 
               
                                     JANET
                         Well, I think it's kept him alive so 
                         far Teal'c. but take a look at his monitors. 
                         See what you're looking at is the actual 
                         symbiote attached to the Hosts brainstem. 
                         Have you seen these lesions? I mean 
                         these dozens of them. I can treat the 
                         Human part but as for the symbiote itself.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         There is no treatment. He's been tortured.

                         Sam?

               
                                     SAM
                         I just had a memory of Jolinar in pain, 
                         when she was killed by the Ashrak.The 
                         ashrak had this device. He used it on 
                         us. It was used to cause incredible 
                         pain. Apophis was tortured by the same 
                         thing.

                         Yes sir

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         you're sure about this?

               
                                     JANET
                         As sure as I can be sir. Considering 
                         what we know of Goa'uld physiology.

                         Good. When?

                         Without access to a sarcoughacus the 
                         Goa'uld body will continue to deteriorate, 
                         we're looking at days, weeks certainly.

                         This kind of torture wasn't designed 
                         to extract information, it's a method 
                         of execution.

                         So what does he want?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         You heard him yourself, he wants sanctuary.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         I'm not buying that.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         He gambled that we would show compassion 
                         even to our worst enemy, and he was 
                         right.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You think he orchestrated this. Let 
                         me tell you something. The only compassion 
                         I showed was not blowing his head off.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I have witnessed once powerful Goa'uld 
                         enter the service of their conquerors 
                         in exchange for life. When Apophis himself, 
                         was a conqueror it gave him great pleasure 
                         to see his enemy so weakened.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         But we're along way from being his conquerors.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         But we are greatly responsible for his 
                         downfall.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         He lost an Army when you destroyed those 
                         two ships in orbit.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Bra'tac did say that that seriously 
                         weakened his place amongst the Goa'uld.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         So his blood is in the water and all 
                         the other sharks are having a feeding 
                         frenzy.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         And he has come here seeking refuge.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, that's tough. I say we beat any 
                         information we can out of old snake 
                         boy and toss him back to the sharks.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Not so fast colonel. He's essentially 
                         a prisoner of war. That gives him certain 
                         rights.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Rights, General?

               
                                     SAM
                         We also have to consider the host, I'm 
                         sorry sir but we are dealing with two 
                         beings within one body. The symbiote 
                         may be an enemy but the host is innocent.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Oh, come on, how much of the host do 
                         you think is still around after all 
                         this time.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Apophis will have that knowledge.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         We also need to consider military intelligence. 
                         I have informed my superiors about our 
                         situation. My orders are to extract 
                         whatever information we can in the short 
                         time we may have.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         He will tell you nothing of use General 
                         Hammond.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         If he believes it's in his own interest 
                         he might.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         We are the only thing that stands between 
                         him and whatever Goa'uld is after him 
                         on that planet.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         We need answers. Let me know when he's 
                         conscious.
 
               
                                     JANET
                         I'll inform you the moment he's ready 
                         for questioning sir.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Dismissed.

               
                                     SAM
                         Sir?

               
                                     JACK
                         Should of shot him.

               
               
               
               Jack is in the observation room. He notices Apophis is waking 
               up
 
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Dr. Frasier. He's awake.

               
               
               
               Janet goes over to him

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Don't get too close doc.

               
                                     JANET
                         He's not strong enough to do anything 
                         to hurt me colonel. He wants to talk 
                         to you.
 
               
               
               
               Jack goes into the Infirmary

               
               
               
                                     JANET
                         He asked to speak to you by name.

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         O'Neill I am dying.

               
                                     JACK
                         My heart bleeds for you.

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         You lie poorly. It is you who have done 
                         this. You rejoice.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Not really. What do you want?

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         To live.

               
                                     JACK
                         Can't help you out there. That's between 
                         you and your God.Oh wait a minute. You 
                         are your God. That's a problem.
 
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         I'm worth far more to you than you will 
                         admit.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You tell me what are you worth?

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         You are still primitive you will be 
                         destroyed.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You don't look like you're up to it.
 
                         
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Not me. There is another

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah. Who?

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         There is much you will learn from me 
                         Tau'ri. For that knowledge there is 
                         a price. A new host.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         A host?

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         So that I may live, in exchange for 
                         all the knowledge of the Goa'uld, secrets 
                         of star travel, weapons, our power.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         All that?

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         in time more.

               
                                     JACK
                         Go to Hell

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         A sake of a human life is worth so much. 
                         You would risk a world.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         That's right. That's why they call us 
                         the good guys. Doc. let me know when 
                         he dies.

                                     JACK
                         What?

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         An ancient and powerful Goa'uld. You 
                         have helped him to be come strong. Last 
                         of my loyal Jaffa died stealing me from 
                         his grasp. He will not rest until I 
                         am found, that is why I came here. So 
                         that in death I can be assured that 
                         you can die with me.
 
               
               
               
               The team are all in Daniel's office

                         Sokar is a Goa'uld of ancient times. 
                         He once was ruler of the system lords 
                         but was defeated by an alliance of Goa'uld 
                         many centuries ago. Apophis and Ra were 
                         among his conquerors.

                         Where did he go?

                         Apophis himself believed him destroyed, 
                         but obviously he was mistaken.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, if he was almost wiped out how 
                         bad could he be now.

                         His names also very old in Earth mythology. 
                         He was the most feared deity in ancient 
                         Egypt, the original God of Death.

                         Got anything a little more up to date.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, I don't know what he's been up 
                         to lately, but according to the book 
                         of the dead, there was a time he ruled 
                         all of Earth, his land around menthes 
                         were covered by darkness and inhabited 
                         by serpents.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Unas. The first host of the Goa'uld.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well that makes sense. I mean if the 
                         Unas were the first ones then there 
                         had to be a time when both form of Goa'uld 
                         host co- existed, Unas and Human. Kind 
                         of like Neanderthals.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Which is he?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know, but his portion of tuat 
                         or the other world was filled with lakes 
                         of fire, the wicked were thrown into 
                         his punishment after torture and mutilation.

                         Yeah. Basically he was the original 
                         Satan.

                         Yes sir. We can get a radiation team 
                         in there to check the decay signature 
                         on the iris.

                         back to the interrogation if I may.

                         Because of what we hold in common. Amaunet 
                         my queen.

                                     APOPHIS

                                     DANIEL
                         Amounet possesses her. Sha're is a Prisoner. 
                         She is somewhere I want you to tell 
                         me where.

                         me.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No. I don't think that's possible.
 
                         
               
                                     APOPHIS

                         Our very being is so much greater, so 
                         much more.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I know where your child is.

                         Yes I brought him into the world with 
                         my own hands on Abydos.

                                     DANIEL
                         No, by me.

                         We have no use for the child now. Amounet, 
                         I knew from the moment I laid eyes on 
                         her, she was a vessel for the queen
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         If you don't tell me where she is. I'll 
                         kill you right here.
 
               
                                     APOPHIS

                                     SAM
                         That the signature matches the Tok'ra? 
                         Yes sir. That it came from them? Theres 
                         no way to be sure.

                         You've shown great skill and cunning 
                         in retrieving Apophis from the hands 
                         of Sokar. However...
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You know as much as I love where you're 
                         going with this, we didn't exactly do 
                         that.
 
               
                                     MARTOUF
                         Our operatives aboard Sokars vessel 
                         witnessed you leave the crash site and 
                         enter the Stargate.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         We received a signal a set of co-ordinates, 
                         we had thought it came from you.
 
               
                                     MARTOUF
                         We sent no such signal.

               
                                     JACK
                         We know that now.

               
                                     MARTOUF
                         Then who?

               
                                     JACK
                         We're going to assume it was Apophis.
 
                         
               
                                     MARTOUF/LANTESH
                         Why would he take refuge among the Tau'ri? 
                         He despises you. More than that you 
                         have nothing of use to him.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         He's going down. He wants to take us 
                         with him.
 
               
                                     LANTESH
                         He has taken advantage of your weakness.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         We don't consider what we did a sign 
                         of weakness.
 
               
                                     LANTESH
                         Then you are fools. Turn him over to 
                         Sokar now. That he may spare you.

                         We can't do that just yet

               
                                     LANTESH
                         If he remains here, you will all die. 
                         if not by the hand of sokar then by 
                         the many Goa'uld who would wish to destroy 
                         Apophis themselves. You do not see what 
                         you have done. You have entered a battle 
                         in which you are ill equipped to fight. 
                         Tipped the balance of power among the 
                         Goa'uld and in so doing worsened the 
                         fortune of your entire race.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         We must know what would happen to him 
                         if we turned him over.
 
               
                                     LANTESH
                         I'm certain he would be executed eventually
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I see.

               
                                     LANTESH
                         surely, you welcome this. His guilt 
                         is clear. He cannot be allowed to escape 
                         punishment.
 
               
                                     JANET
                         He won't. He's dying.

               
                                     LANTESH
                         You are certain of this.

               
                                     JANET
                         Yes. His body has begun to age in an 
                         increasing rate.
 
               
                                     LANTESH
                         Without a sarcaphagous to rejuvenate 
                         him of course.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         In the short time he has remaining. 
                         We may yet learn information to aid 
                         ourselves.
 
               
                                     LANTESH
                         The knowledge and Technology are too 
                         primitive for any information to be 
                         of any use. Why don't you comprehend 
                         the danger you are in? We cannot defend 
                         you from the Goa'uld. You cannot expect 
                         us too.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         We don't.

                         Overconfidence was their failing O'Neill. 
                         I hope it has not become yours.
 
               
                                     LANTESH/MARTOUF
                         Forgive Lantesh. He is sometimes passionate 
                         in his opinions. We cannot and would 
                         not force you to do anything, but since 
                         we have not convinced you of the danger 
                         you face may we see him?

                         The space between your metal barrier 
                         and the wormhole may be enough for particles 
                         of extremely high energy to reintegrate.

                         Yes.

                         Are you saying he's firing a particle 
                         accelerator at the wormhole?

                         Sir, we may be witnessing the decay 
                         of subatomic particles as they're being 
                         bombarded against the Iris. Small enough 
                         to reintegrate but moving at nearly 
                         light velocity. Sokar can modulate the 
                         particle stream enough to create an 
                         actual image.

                         People of the Tau'ri you have taken 
                         what is mine. For this you will be destroyed.

                         The iris is beginning to heat up sir.

                         How long can they maintain this?

               
                                     SAM
                         The longest single Goa'uld attack against 
                         the iris was 38 minutes, we think that's 
                         the maximum a wormhole can be maintained 
                         before collapsing.

                         don't you see what you can get out of

                         I will accompany you.

               
               
               
               Teal'c is in the infirmary

                         I will not speak to the Shol'va

               
                                     SAM
                         Just answer this. Sokar is firing some 
                         sort of particle beam at the barrier 
                         we've placed within our stargate. How 
                         do we defend against it?
 
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         There is no defense.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         He lies.

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Shol'va kree.

               
                                     SAM
                         How can you be so sure?

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Because he used the weapon against me. 
                          
                         the pain returns.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         We're not going to get anything out 
                         of him in this state. I'll get Dr. Frasier.

                         I have waited many years for this moment.
 
                         
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Do you think you have won Teal'c. You 
                         are about to die.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Perhaps that is so. But my People have 
                         won freedom.

                         The Jaffa will never be free.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They are free even now, as am I. Here 
                         me Apophis. This day will become a holy 
                         day on Chulak. The day of your death.
 
                         
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         The larval Goa'uld you carry within 
                         you is your master even now. All of 
                         you. When the time comes for those children 
                         to take a host you will die.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Then we will find other symbiote to 
                         survive upon. Then disgard them when 
                         they are mature. We will use your kind 
                         as you have used mine.
 
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         No.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The people of chulak no longer worship 
                         you. They no longer fear you. The time 
                         of Apophis has finally come to an end.

                         Tell us how to defend ourselves against 
                         this weapon.
 
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         I will die with a smile on my lips. 
                         Knowing you will die along with me shol'va.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Come no further. Let him suffer and 
                         when he can stand the pain no more, 
                         he will tell us how to defend ourselves

                         Martouf is right, what we really need 
                         to be concerned with here is another 
                         assault from space. That's exactly what 
                         we're inviting by refusing to hand Apophis

                         I'm aware of that doctor. The president 
                         and Joint-chiefs have decided that the 
                         risks are too great not to heed the 
                         Tok'ra's warning. Our orders are to 
                         send Apophis' body back through the 
                         gate to the co-ordinates where you found 
                         him.

                         Sokar is at war with Her'ur, he wants 
                         no part of the Tau'ri for the moment, 
                         but you may have come to your senses 
                         to late. He will soon burn through your 
                         iris.

                         If Sokar wanted him alive then he'll 
                         just start up the attack again.

                         No. I don't believe he will, Sokar has 
                         a sarcaphagous in his possession. With 
                         it he can revive Apophis even through 
                         death and torture him as long as he 
                         pleases. Surely a fate he justly deserves

                         you're going to need one of these. Its 
                         called a G D O, Sends out a signal to 
                         let us know who you are and if its ok 
                         to open the iris, otherwise you could 
                         end up splattered against the wall.
