                         There's no-one scheduled to come back 
                         for 24 hours. Who is it?
 
               
                                     TECH
                         It's SG-1's remote access code, Sir.

                         'gate is showing twice the power as 
                         normal, and it's increasing!
 
               
               
               
               Daniel and Teal'c are thrown through the gate. Daniel is unconscious

                         Get a medical team in here now! Teal'c, 
                         are you alright?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I am.

                         Where are Colonel O'Neill and Captain 
                         Carter?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They could not have been more than two 
                         metres behind. I do not know.

               Infirmary. Teal'c has his arm in a sling

               
               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Doctor Jackson's still unconscious but 
                         Doctor Warner thinks he'll be alright. 
                         I need to know what went on back there 
                         Teal'c.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         We were under fire. Distant. Energy 
                         weapons of some kind. Possibly Goa'uld 
                         technology.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         So it's possible Colonel O'Neill and 
                         Captain Carter were struck by enemy 
                         fire?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I do not believe so. They were but a 
                         few metres behind me as we passed through 
                         the Stargate.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         How many hostiles were there?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They were some distance away. But we 
                         appeared to be surrounded. We were there 
                         only moments. Colonel O'Neill ordered 
                         us to lay down cover fire while Daniel 
                         Jackson dialled home. General Hammond, 
                         I believe they should have made it through 
                         the gate. I do not understand why they 
                         did not.

                         Preliminary report on the Stargate repairs, 
                         Sir.

                                     HAMMOND
                         There was some kind of overload during 
                         transit, we don't know why.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I must return immediately.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Not with an army waiting on the other 
                         side, sorry.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         General Hammond, I suggest a second 
                         probe be sent through.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         As soon as the Stargate's working again 
                         we'll do just that.
 
               
               
               
               Jack begins to wake up

               
               
               
                                     JACK

                         Carter.

               
                                     SAM
                         Try to stay put Sir, I think your leg's 
                         broken.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         No, my leg's definitely broken. This 
                         is bad news, because unless they've 
                         redecorated the 'gate room I don't think 
                         we're in Kansas anymore.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Daniel must have misdialled.

               
                                     JACK
                         Misdialled? You mean this place is a 
                         wrong number? Ah, for crying out loud. 
                         Where is he?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         He's not here, Sir, neither is Teal'c.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         No, he has to be.

               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah, I tried that. You've been unconscious 
                         for nearly two hours.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         They came through the gate before we 
                         did.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I know that, I also know we're alone 
                         here, wherever here is.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Ice. Nice.

               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah, I think we're inside a deep crevasse 
                         of a glacier. If their Stargate's been 
                         overrun by ice, possibly on a planet 
                         in the middle of an ice age. Now, there 
                         is some light filtering through up there 
                         and there are some fissures in the ice, 
                         but all of them are too narrow to follow 
                         very far. We're in trouble, Sir.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Oh, nonsense. We'll just dial home and 
                         straighten all this out. Where's the 
                         DHD?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Can't find that either.

               
                                     JACK
                         Oh, so we're in trouble.

               
                                     SAM
                         We're in trouble.

                         We've almost replaced all the super 
                         conductive interface elements, Sir. 
                         The old ones all melted. It's going 
                         to take some time to load test them 
                         though.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Just tell me the minute we can send 
                         a probe through.
 
               
                                     SILER
                         That'll be 24 hours General, minimum.

                         Captain Carter and Colonel O'Neill do 
                         not have that long.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I'll give you half that.

               
                                     SILER
                         No Sir, it doesn't work that way. 24 
                         hours is the best I can do.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Then you'd better get back to it.

               
                                     SILER
                         Yes Sir! Come on, let's go.

               
               Sam is putting a splint on Jack's leg

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Oh, God

               
                                     SAM
                         Okay, I think it's set.

               
                                     JACK
                         You think it's set?

               
                                     SAM
                         I'm positive. All we have to do is put 
                         a splint on it and you'll be as good 
                         as new.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Just take it easy, Doctor.

                         Wrong kind of doctor, I'm afraid.

               
                                     JACK
                         You wouldn't think jagged bone digging 
                         into raw nerves would hurt, but it does.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Sorry Sir, but I've never done this 
                         before in my life. Is this your first 
                         broken bone?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Ah, no, this would be if you count skull 
                         fractures.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         How did you manage that?

               
                                     JACK
                         Little parachuting mishap, over the 
                         borders of Iran and Iraq, in 1980.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Okay, this is gonna hurt, Sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         Ah! I know,I know.

               
                                     SAM
                         So, what happened?

               
                                     JACK
                         I hit the ground. Go figure. God. My 
                         chute opened late, and it hurt, just 
                         like that.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I'm sorry Colonel, I'm doing the best 
                         I can.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I know you are, Captain, can you just 
                         be done?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         So you hit the ground, and.?

               
                                     JACK
                         And they all lived happily ever after.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Almost there, almost there.

               
                                     JACK
                         No, you're there Captain, you're there. 
                         That's a great splint. Stop! Stop!
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         So, how long before you were rescued?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         No rescue. It wasn't exactly an official 
                         mission, if you know what I mean, so 
                         I had to make it out on my own. It took 
                         nine days.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Wow, what got you through it?

               
                                     JACK
                         Sara.

               
                                     SAM
                         Your wife.

               
                                     JACK
                         At the time. I needed to see her again. 
                         You tallied our supplies yet?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah, Sir, supplied for three days, 
                         but we can stretch that. We've got a 
                         little drinking water, but...
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Ice melts.

               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah, and we've got our field cooking 
                         gear to melt it. Flashlight batteries 
                         are gonna be a problem. We've got thermal 
                         blankets.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         That's great. By the way, Captain, we 
                         are going to get out of here, that's 
                         an order.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         How's the splint feel?

               
                                     JACK
                         Captain, you have to believe me.

               
                                     SAM
                         I want to, Sir, I just don't see how.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Then we'd better start looking for a 
                         way. Because I'll be damned if I'm going 
                         to die on some god-forsaken block of 
                         ice a million light years from home. 
                         Is that clear?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Yes Sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         Good. Now help me up.

               
                                     SAM
                         I don't think you should move.

               
                                     JACK
                         Probably not, but my butt's freezing 
                         to the ground. Come on. A little paint, 
                         a coupla windows, maybe a fireplace 
                         in the corner, it'll be just like home.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Back at the SGC infirmary. Daniel is in bed and is just waking 
               up. Teal'c is standing beside him
 
               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Teal'c?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The Stargate has malfunctioned. We came 
                         through the 'gate at too great a velocity.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Jack and Sam?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They did not follow.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes they did. I know they did. They 
                         were right behind us. That doesn't make 
                         any sense.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I concur. In a few hours a probe will 
                         be sent back in an attempt to determine 
                         their fate.
 
               
               
               
               Jack and Sam continue to figure out a way to get home

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         We might be able to climb out of here. 
                         You might, anyway.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         What?

               
                                     JACK
                         I said, you might be able to climb outta 
                         here.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel, I've found it!

               
                                     JACK
                         Found what?

               
                                     SAM
                         The DHD, I figure the glacial flow must 
                         have separated the Stargate from its 
                         Dial Home Device, but it looks like 
                         it might be intact.
 
               
               
               
               The DHD is buried under ice

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         God. Oh. Can we dig it out?

               
                                     SAM
                         Even if it doesn't work, we can use 
                         the chopped ice to melt drinking water.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Alright.

               
                                     SAM
                         What's wrong with your chest?

               
                                     JACK
                         I think I cracked a rib too.

               
                                     SAM
                         Why didn't you say something?

               
                                     JACK
                         I was afraid you'd try to put a splint 
                         on it. I'll be fine.
 
               
               
               
               He helps her try to remove the ice

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         I've been thinking about where Daniel 
                         and Teal'c might be.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah?

               
                                     SAM
                         So far, I count three possible explanations. 
                         One, Daniel misdialled and they're here, 
                         somewhere we haven't found.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I don't see 'em.

               
                                     SAM
                         Right. Two, Daniel didn't misdial but 
                         for some reason the Stargate malfunctioned 
                         during transit. Don't ask me how, I 
                         haven't figured that part out yet. Anyway, 
                         they got sent back to Earth, but for 
                         some reason we got sent here.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What's three?

               
                                     SAM
                         Three. The Stargate malfunctioned. We 
                         got sent to this planet, Daniel and 
                         Teal'c got sent to another one.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What's four?

               
                                     SAM
                         There is no four.

               
                                     JACK

                         Alright, we'll assume they made it back 
                         to Earth. They'll start sending search 
                         parties.

                         Where would they begin? They have no 
                         idea where we are. With all the possible 
                         Stargates a random search could easily 
                         take ten years!

                         Even if all SG teams started searching 
                         right now, the mathematical probability

                         might have malfunctioned.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah?

               
                                     SAM
                         Well, we don't totally understand how 
                         it works, but the theory we have so 
                         far is that the 'gate creates an artificial 
                         wormhole, that somehow transfers an 
                         energised matter stream in one direction 
                         along an extra-dimensional conduit. 
                         I think the matter stream between Stargates 
                         got redirected, kind of like a lightning 
                         bolt jumping from one point to another 
                         in mid-strike. Now, I figure it had 
                         to have been the attack on P4A-771. 
                         The gate itself was probably struck 
                         by enough energy during the firefight 
                         to influence the direction of the matter 
                         stream before we reached the other side. 
                         Colonel?
 
               
                                     JACK

                                     SAM
                         What I'm saying is, we must have emerged 
                         through a Stargate relatively close 
                         to Earth in the 'gate network, somewhere 
                         between P4A-771 and Earth. Now, if the 
                         SG rescue teams reach the same conclusion, 
                         it could significantly reduce their 
                         search.

                         It is possible that they might have 
                         perished within the wormhole.

                         are alive, if there's the least remote 
                         possiblity that this malfunction sent 
                         them to another Stargate.

                         to discharge somewhere.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Like, another Stargate?

               
                                     MAN
                         Yeah, maybe. Sir, it's all theoretical, 
                         but we think that Stargates are basically 
                         giant superconductors. Charged matter 
                         streams along lines of force between 
                         them.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Positive to negative, like electricity. 
                         Right?
 
               
                                     MAN
                         Except for the fact the whole trip happens 
                         outside our dimension, yeah, more or 
                         less.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Okay, what if it jumped. Redirected 
                         itself here, or here, or anywhere along 
                         here.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         You're suggesting we search all these 
                         worlds?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, at least we've narrowed an entire 
                         galaxy of Stargates down to a handful 
                         of possibilities.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Assuming you're right, why haven't they 
                         used that Stargate to come back on their 
                         own?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Teal'c and I were flung out of this 
                         'gate at this end so fast I don't even 
                         remember hitting the ramp. Now, they 
                         could be badly hurt, in which case we 
                         will not have to search far from the 
                         Stargates themselves. I think we owe 
                         it to them to try.

                         Yeah, this one has to be the point of 
                         origin. I've never seen it before. No 
                         batteries. Guess it's now or never.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         I've always preferred now to never.

                                     JACK
                         You dialled the right address?

               
                                     SAM
                         Yes! It has to be something as simple 
                         as the control interface. If we can 
                         dig down to the panel on the DHD I can 
                         fix it.
 
               
                                     JACK

                                     JACK
                         Of course we do. But we've been awake 
                         for a very long time. It'll be there 
                         in the morning. God.

                         I told you we're gonna get out of here. 
                         It's just gonna take longer than we 
                         thought.

                         Dr. Jackson?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         We just received probe telemetry from 
                         P5C-11 and 12, neither of them have 
                         a breathable atmosphere any more. If 
                         they ever did.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I have formally reported Colonel O'Neill 
                         and Captain Carter as missing in action.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Why?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Missing in action doesn't mean we stop 
                         looking, Son.
 
               
               
               
               Hammnd leaves the room and Daniel turns back to the map

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm missing something.

               
               
               
               Sam and Jack huddle together to keep warm

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Captain. Much as I might otherwise think 
                         this is nice.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Try to sleep.

               
                                     JACK
                         Is that what we were doing?

               
                                     SAM
                         You were exhausted, you passed out. 
                         I just thought we had to combine body 
                         heat or we wouldn't make it through 
                         the night.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         That's fine, it's just really hard to 
                         sleep with broken ribs when someone's 
                         lying on you.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Sorry, sorry, sorry.

               
                                     JACK
                         That's better.

               
                                     SAM
                         Sleep for a few hours and I'll fix the 
                         DHD.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Okay. Night.

                         It's my sidearm, I swear. No giggling, 
                         please.!
 
               
                                     SAM
                         If we don't make it, I won't have any 
                         regrets, you?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I'll regret dying.

               
               
               
               Later, Sam continues to try and get the gate to work

                         I'm usually the first one up.

               
                                     SAM
                         You're bleeding internally, I don't 
                         know how badly. Your broken leg may 
                         already be frostbitten, I can't tell. 
                         I've been trying to warm it up with 
                         the last of our cooking sterno but that's 
                         about had it.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What's the bad news? Help me up.

               
                                     SAM
                         No, Sir, you need to heal. That's an 
                         order.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I give the orders around here.

               
                                     SAM
                         Doctor's orders. I want you to drink 
                         as much of this as you can. Once that 
                         dies, we won't be able to thaw any more. 
                         I should have gotten you out of here 
                         by now, I'm sorry.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         You will, you will.

               
                                     SAM
                         I have been working on the control panel 
                         for the last twelve hours, it just, 
                         I don't know why it won't work, it should 
                         work! I'm missing something.
 
               
                                     JACK

                         Sir?

               
                                     JACK
                         It's time to go to plan B.

               
                                     SAM
                         What would plan B be?

               
                                     JACK
                         You take the rest of the supplies and 
                         climb out of here. Take your chances 
                         up on the planet, head towards daylight.

                         If I can't get that Stargate to work, 
                         we will both go.

                         Right, I'll race you. Alright Captain, 
                         make it work.

                         What happened?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         We were exploring a cave not far from 
                         the Stargate. He fell several metres 
                         from a rock ledge. There was no sign 
                         of Captain Carter or Colonel O'Neill.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Are you alright?

                         I am ready to embark again.

                         I'm calling the search off.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         What?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         This was the last of the planets to 
                         fit your theory, Doctor.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, it's been, what, a few days? What 
                         if we stop just short of finding them?
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I'm sorry!

               
               
               
               Sam continues to try and repair the DHD

                         Reset! Why didn't I think! Colonel, 
                         I'm gonna interrupt the power. I'm gonna 
                         shut it all off and turn it on again! 
                         Okay, this better work. Okay, okay.
 
                         
               
               
               
               The gate has power, but is still not working properly. Back at 
               the SGC, a glass on the table by Daniel begins to shake.

                         Teal'c. Did you see that?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Why are you here?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I couldn't sleep. I was thinking that 
                         I must be missing something, and now 
                         I just realised we ruled out a world 
                         we shouldn't have.

                                     JACK
                         I guess it didn't work.

               
                                     SAM
                         I'm sorry.

               
                                     JACK
                         Not your fault.

               
                                     SAM
                         I don't understand why it won't work!

                                     SAM
                         No, Sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         Sam, I'm dying. Follow my order, please.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         Please.

               
                                     SAM
                         Yes Sir.

               
               
               
               Daniel, Teal'c and Hammond talk

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         How many Earth-based cultures have we 
                         encountered from other worlds from periods 
                         both before and after we think the Stargate 
                         was buried?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Several, I think.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Right, and we've probably only scratched 
                         the surface. Now, so far we've tried 
                         to account for these discrepancies with 
                         various theories of parallel or accelerated...
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What's your point, Doctor?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         What if there's a second Stargate here. 
                         What if this energy surge caused the 
                         wormhole to jump from one Stargate to 
                         another, here.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         On Earth?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Teal'c, would the Goa'uld have put more 
                         than one Stargate on a planet?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         If the first became lost to them, it 
                         is possible.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Remember, the one that Ra put here might 
                         not have been the first. The Goa'uld 
                         didn't build the Stargate system.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Then where is it?

               
               
               
               Sam begins to climb out of the cave. She radio's to Jack

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel, I can't see the surface yet, 
                         it looks like it just keeps going up.

                                     SAM
                         Yes Sir?

               
                                     JACK
                         It was an honour serving with you.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Yes Sir.

                                     DANIEL
                         It would have to be in a remote location 
                         otherwise it would have been discovered 
                         by now. It could have even been buried 
                         until recently otherwise the Goa'uld 
                         would have continued to use it.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Let us hope it is not still buried.

                          We're looking for radio transmissions 
                         on SG-1's emergency frequency. Co-ordinate 
                         with air military listening posts around 
                         the entire globe.

                         General, when we first opened our Stargate, 
                         it used to shake A LOT. I mean, the 
                         ground, the whole facility, everything.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         We've installed frequency dampers that 
                         limit that to only a slight vibration.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Okay, but what if the second 'gate doesn't 
                         have those. Would it shake enough to 
                         indicate its location on a seizmometer?
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Damn right it would. Run a search for 
                         all recent seismic activity worldwide. 
                         See if any coincide with the time of 
                         our Stargate malfunction.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         And check about 4am local time. I was 
                         here, I thought someone was trying an 
                         off-world activation, but nothing happened. 
                         Except for the chevrons glowed and there 
                         was a slight vibration.

                                     DANIEL
                         What happens when you dial your own 
                         phone number? Wrong person to ask. What 
                         happens when you dial your own phone 
                         number?

                         You get a busy signal.

                         Exactly. What else could cause a vibration 
                         like that except if they were trying 
                         to dial home? They couldn't get home. 
                         I mean, even if the seventh symbol looked 
                         different, the co-ordinates of the two 
                         gates would still be exactly the same.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Sam is almost at the top

               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel, I'm almost there. I'm gonna 
                         try and bring back help, Sir, I want 
                         you to hold that thought.
 
               
               
               
               She reaches the top. As she climbs out, she is faced with an 
               icy planet.

                         Colonel? It's an ice planet. That's 
                         all there is as far as the eye can see. 
                         No chance. Colonel! I'm coming down! 
                         Colonel. Colonel.

               The rescue team have arrived. Helicopters hover overhead. Daniel

                         Let's get them in the chopper.

                         Colonel. He's bleeding internally.

                         We know, Captain, don't worry, he's 
                         going to be alright.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         General, you came through the Stargate 
                         for us.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Not exactly Captain. A team from the 
                         SGC will be coming within the hour to 
                         secure this area. In the meantime let's 
                         get these people home.
 
               
               
               
               Hammond looks at the Stargate

               
               THE END
