               A member of an SGC team is running through the woods, offworld.There 
               is a man running behind him and they are being chased.
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         Come on, Franks, let's go!

               
                                     FRANKS
                         Connor! Connor! I dropped my remote!
 
                         
               
                                     CONNOR
                         Got it!

               
               
               
               Franks is hit with a dart

               
               
               
                                     FRANKS
                         Ah!

               
               Connor runs to the gate and begins to dial. He turns and notices 
               that the other man is not there.
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         Franks! Franks!

               
               
               
               The other men catch up with Franks. Another member of the SGC 
               grabs him by the hair.
 
               
               
               
                                     MAN
                         Franks, Franks, Franks. I'm disappointed 
                         you, my son.
 
               
               
               
               He shoots Franks in the head

               
               
               
                                     MAN
                         So, Conner got through.

               
                                     MAN 2
                         What about this one?

               
                                     MAN
                         Burn him.

               
               
               
               They set fire to Franks

               
               Titles

               
               
               
               SG1 come through the gate

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         For a planet with a UV radiation as 
                         high as this one is supposed to have, 
                         the plant life seems to be doing very 
                         well.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Apparently Abydos was the exception, 
                         not the rule, as far as tree's are concerned.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well that makes since, for a plant to 
                         support human life there must be some 
                         sort of Carbon-based vegetation, right?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is no accident. Many Stargate worlds 
                         were tare-formed by the Goa'ulds, centuries 
                         ago.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Okay, let's take a quick look around 
                         the gate, before we move out to find 
                         SG-9.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         It can't be that far.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I don't know, this Stargate is literally 
                         out in the middle of nowhere, I doubt 
                         it plays an active role in anybody's 
                         cultural.
 
               
               
               
               Sam seems to sense something is wrong

               
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Is there a problem Dr. Carter?

               
                                     SAM
                         No birds.

               
               
               
               Daniel is walking through the tree's, alone

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         There should be a road up here or something 
                         or...Jack? Guys?
 
               
               
               
               Connor appears and holds a gun at his throat.

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Ah! Okay, okay, don't shoot.

               
               
               
               Jack appears behind him and points a gun at Connor

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         That's very sound advice.

               
               
               
               Jack takes his gun. Connor turns around

               
               
               
                                     CONNOR
                         Colonel O'Neill.

               
                                     JACK
                         Lieutenant Connor?"

               
               
               
               Connor falls to the ground

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Alright, alright, come-on. Alright Connor, 
                         what's going on? Command received your 
                         signal six hours ago, and no one came 
                         through. Why?
 
               
                                     CANNOR
                         Hanson.

               
                                     SAM
                         Where is he, we need to talk.

               
                                     CONNOR
                         No, don't.

               
                                     JACK
                         Why?

               
                                     CONNOR
                         Franks, he...

               
               
               
               Connor runs to where Franks body is

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Conner? Conner, I need to know what 
                         happened.
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         Permission to speak freely about a superior 
                         officer, sir?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, go ahead.

               
                                     CONNOR
                         He's lost it, he's out of control.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Captain Hanson?

               
                                     CONNOR
                         Maybe it was the sun, radiation.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Wait, are you saying the sun did this 
                         to Franks?
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         No, sir. Captain Hanson did that to 
                         Franks.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         What?

               
                                     CONNOR
                         For trying to get back through the gate.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         I don't buy that.

               
                                     CONNOR
                         Sir, we were trying to warn command 
                         about what's really going on, the people 
                         here, they believe he's their God!
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Because you came through the Stargate?
 
                         
               
                                     CONNOR
                         No, no, you don't get it. Hanson believes 
                         it too.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Carter? I want you to take Conner back 
                         through the Stargate, report to General 
                         Hammond what's happened here.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         No, sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         No, Sir?

               
                                     SAM
                         If you are going after Captain, I should 
                         go with you, I can get to him.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Look, Captain, either were bringing 
                         him back to face a court- marshal, or 
                         not. I think we both know what the not 
                         means.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I know him, Colonel.

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, that would be the problem.

               
                                     SAM
                         I gave him back the ring because I know 
                         him. I know how he thinks, how he operates.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         How he likes to play god?

               
                                     SAM
                         Look, I don't understand how that could 
                         happen, any more then you do, but if 
                         SG-1 is going after him then I am going 
                         with you.
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         Wait a minute, you, you, you can't do 
                         that, there hundreds, probably thousands 
                         of them. He's their god. They'll die 
                         for him, they'll kill for him in a heartbeat.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         That's not your problem, now I need 
                         someone to report back to the General, 
                         and that is you.
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         No, sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         No sir? Dose it say Colonel anywhere 
                         on my uniform?
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         I know the planet, the situation, I 
                         think it's suicide. But if your going, 
                         I'm going, sir.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         But you are not physically able.

               
                                     CONNOR
                         Frank was my friend.

               
                                     SAM
                         This isn't about revenge.

               
                                     CONNOR
                         Maybe not for you. We got to move now, 
                         in daylight.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, we're off to see the wizard.
 
                         
               
                                     CONNOR
                         I hope you packed lot's of sun block.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well, were mostly undercover

               
                                     SAM
                         The probe's data indicated that shade, 
                         even heavy cloud cover won't protect 
                         us, it can be pouring rain, and we'll 
                         still burn.
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         She's right.

               
                                     JACK
                         Then why on Earth, are we travelling 
                         during the day?
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         Were not on Earth, people here live 
                         in caves. I think they used to be mines; 
                         they only come out at night. There probably 
                         still after me, sir.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         To OZ

                         Your right, they sent SG-1.

               
               
               
               Hanson throws his dog tags away

               
               Back with SG1. Daniel and Sam are eating

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL

                                     SAM
                         So what's wrong with it?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's macaroni and cheese.

               
                                     JACK

                                     JACK
                         Perfect.If any little rocks sneak up 
                         on us, we'll have plenty of warning.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         So, any ingenious Lion's, tigers, or 
                         bears I should lying awake worrying 
                         about?
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         The plant life is all that seems to 
                         live in the sun.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You know how could something like this 
                         actually happen. The SG teams are supposed 
                         to be made of well-trained professionals.
 
                         
               
                                     CONNOR
                         Well when we first met the cave dwellers, 
                         they immediately bowed down to us, thought 
                         we were Gods.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well that's a fairly common phenomenon, 
                         I mean , it happens.
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         Except Hanson didn't deny it. Told us 
                         it might be safe if we allowed them 
                         to believe he was god for a while. He 
                         said it was the system of government 
                         they needed to retake their world.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         And, you were okay with that?

               
                                     CONNOR
                         Franks was our anthropologist, he agreed 
                         with Hanson, that might be safer. But 
                         the longer we stayed here, the stronger 
                         they believed. On our forth or fifth 
                         week here, a young child wanted out 
                         of the caves, and must've gotten lost, 
                         Hanson went on after him, he was gone 
                         for two full days before he came back. 
                         Carrying the child, barley alive in 
                         his arms.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         The cave dwellers must have loved him 
                         for that.
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         Yeah, they did, he wasn't the same after 
                         that.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Your saying that's what sent him over 
                         the edge, the sun?
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         It want any one thing, if it was, me 
                         and Franks, we could of seen it coming. 
                         Done something about it before.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Before what?

               
                                     CONNOR
                         There were a few cave dwellers that 
                         got the ides the Hanson was just a man, 
                         like they were, thanks to Franks and 
                         I. He had them tied to stakes and left 
                         out in direct sunlight, if they lived 
                         seven days, they were allowed back in 
                         the caves.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         A number of certain Biblical events 
                         took place over the course of seven 
                         days.
 
               
                                     CONNOR
                         By then they were blind. Giant bleeding 
                         burns all over them. Just took them 
                         a little longer to die. Personally, 
                         I'd rather eat a bullet.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I'll take first watch.

               
               
               
               Hansons base. They seem to live in caves that are on ledges in 
               a large clifftop. Natives are working on the ground
 
               
               
               
               Back with the team

               
                                     CONNOR
                         Hey, Colonel, I'll take watch

               
               
               
               The natives have arrived

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Let's go, we've got company

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Are you sure?

               
               
               
               A dart almost hits Daniel

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Pretty sure.

               
               
               
               The team begin shooting and the natives leave

                         They appear to be gone.

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, Conner? Conner?

               
               
               
               Connor has been taken

               
               
               
               Hanson isn't happy at the rate the building work is going

                                     BAKER
                         They'll die.

                         Hanson's in Control.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Sounds familure.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Which part?

               
                                     SAM
                         He likes control.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh. What did you see in him?

               
                                     SAM
                         I don't know. I guess I've always had 
                         a soft spot for the lunatic fringe. 
                         he was charming.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         That's good, charming is good.

               
                                     SAM
                         "I don't no. I should be more surprised 
                         by this then I am, but I'm not. You 
                         know, he had this in him, Daniel. Too 
                         many years of Black Ops.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well that's typical of are government's 
                         evaluation of solders. The crazier they 
                         are, the more extreme situation they 
                         seem to be put in to.
 
               
               
               
               He turns to look at Jack

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         He wasn't happy when I broke off the 
                         engagement, but he seemed like he really 
                         pulled himself together when we met 
                         up a Stargate Command
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Apparently not.

               
                                     JACK
                         What do you got Teal'c?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         This way.

               
               
               
               They look over the clifftop and see the natives working on building 
               the temple. Teal'c gives Jack some binoculars. Connor is tied 
               to a stake in the middle of the complex
 
               
               
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         I'll be back in 30 minutes.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         If your are thinking about rescuing 
                         Conner.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Not yet, Captain? When the time comes 
                         I'll need your help getting in the front 
                         door.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I'm prepared for that, sir.

               
               
               
               Jack leaves

               
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There will be none left to worship if 
                         this continues.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Like Abraham.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Who is Abraham?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         A biblical figure. Believed to be the 
                         father of man, God tested his faith 
                         by instruction him to make a great sacrifice, 
                         his son Isaac.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Did he sacrifice his son?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         He gave it a good shot before a angle 
                         stopped him. At the last minute.
 
               
               
               
               A worker has fallen. Baker goes over to him

               
               
               
                                     BAKER
                         Get up!

               
                                     MAN
                         He's worked straight through the night, 
                         he needs rest.
 
               
                                     BAKER
                         Shut up! Do I have to make an example? 
                         Do I?
 
               
               
               
               Baker begins to hit the man, with his gun

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Hey, look over there.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Whoa. Where are you going?

               
                                     SAM
                         I can't just stay here and watch him 
                         beat that man to death.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You will be captured.

               
                                     SAM
                         Uh-huh.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         You think that's a plan.

               
                                     SAM
                         Daniel, I can get to Hanson, that's 
                         what the Colonel was talking about.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Well can you at least wait until he 
                         gets back?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         A man could be dead by then.

               
               
               
               She leaves

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         We should have stopped her.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         We would have failed.

               
               
               
               Sam reaches the man and punches Baker

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, that was refreshing.

               
               
               
               Jack returns to Daniel and Teal'c

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Conner looks bad, there are two guards 
                         who.
 
               
               
               
               Sam is surrendering

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Uh.

               
                                     JACK
                         Never mind. It's probably are only way 
                         in without a fire fight anyways.
 
               
               
               
               Sam is taken into a cave

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Alright, alright.

                         Well, it's about time.

               
                                     SAM
                         Hello Jonas.

               
                                     HANSON
                         And you never thought I'd amount to 
                         anything. Quite a leap isn't it? From 
                         Captain to
 
               
                                     SAM
                         What's happened to you Jonas?

               
                                     HANSON
                         Please, sit down. These caves were once 
                         mines they primate the hillside for 
                         miles. But these people have been multiplying 
                         like rabbits. They don't have the technology 
                         to dig themselves more space, they don't 
                         have the courage to leave the caves. 
                         It's like a third world country in a 
                         bottle.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         And you think yours saving them?

               
                                     HANSON
                         I know I am. These people, their human 
                         beings. They're like us. How can we 
                         turn our backs on them? Kidnapped from 
                         Earth, forced into slavery for centuries!
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         We can't change that.

               
                                     HANSON
                         Yes we can, we must help.

               
                                     SAM
                         Well how is posing as a god and slowly 
                         working these people to death going 
                         to helping?
 
               
                                     HANSON
                         "I hate that word, stop using it. I'm 
                         not posing! It is a matter of definition 
                         my people need me. They believe in me, 
                         and because they believe they work.

                         Were building a civilization, Sam. There 
                         are going to be sacrifices. It's better 
                         then rotting in caves, living and dying 
                         in squalor like you've never seen. I'm 
                         creating a great people.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         In your image?

               
                                     HANSON
                         Yes. It's going to be wondrous! You'll 
                         see, you'll see.
 
               
               
               
               The team decide what to do

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Alright, were going to have to get one 
                         of them alone, talk to him.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They could give us away.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Maybe not, maybe not. I think I've got 
                         just the candidate.
 
               
               
               
               One of the natives is at the river, washing. Daniel goes up to 
               him and begins to wash his own hands. He waves to the man, and 
               as the man looks up, he see's Jack. Teal'c also appears
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Shh

               
               
               
               Hanson is showing Sam some drawings on the cave walls

               
               
               
                                     HANSON
                         I really wish I understood these drawings.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Why don't you ask your people?

               
                                     HANSON
                         All knowing.

               
                                     SAM
                         You knew I would come didn't you?

               
                                     HANSON
                         How could you not? Healer of the emotionally 
                         wounded. I was your one failure. The 
                         bird with the broken wing that wouldn't 
                         heal.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         You seem to be flying well enough on 
                         your own.
 
               
                                     HANSON
                         I hoped that you would understand.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Sam grabs a gun and points it at Hanson

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         I do understand, your sick and you need 
                         help.
 
               
                                     HANSON
                         That your idea of help?

               
                                     SAM
                         Yes, you're coming back with me.

               
                                     HANSON
                         Well, your gonna have to use it, Sam. 
                         Go on. It's still loaded, pull the trigger. 
                         So help me, that is the only way your 
                         going to stop me. What's a few deaths 
                         compared to the survival of MY people? 
                         Killing their savior might irritate 
                         them a little, but at least I'd be gone.
 
                         
               
                                     HANSON
                         Go on, pull the trigger, one more fraction 
                         of an inch.
 
               
               
               
               He takes the gun from her

               
               
               
                                     HANSON
                         You had the gun. You appeared to have 
                         all the power. Yet, I was in control. 
                         That is the strength of a God.
 
               
               
               
               Back with the team

               
               
               
                                     JAMALA
                         My name is Jamala, Jamala. Pleas don't 
                         kill me.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, we won't.

               
                                     JAMALA
                         Jonas said you would come. Devils with 
                         power like him here to destroy us.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No! No, were not devils. Were men like 
                         yourself. I'm Daniel, this is Jack and 
                         this is Teal'c.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Hi!

               
                                     JAMALA
                         Is he a Jaffa?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yes.

               
                                     JAMALA
                         Don't kill me!

               
                                     DANIEL
                         No! It's okay! He's friendly, he's a 
                         friend.
 
               
               
               
               Daniel walks up to Teal'c

               
               
               
               Smile, look friendly.

               
                                     JACK
                         Your going to have to work on that a 
                         little bit.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         "How do you know he's a Jaffa, have 
                         you seen one before?
 
               
                                     JAMALA
                         No, just stories from when I was a young 
                         boy. Long ago. He is a servant of the 
                         old Gods, yes?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well yes and no. He's from another place. 
                         So are we.
 
               
                                     JAMALA
                         Another place?

               
                                     JACK
                         Earth. It's way, way out there, where 
                         we're from, Jonas too. See he's not 
                         a God, he's just a man. A crazy man, 
                         granted, but..
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Okay, Okay, Jonas is bad.

               
                                     JACK
                         But it's alright, he can't hear you 
                         right now, he can't hurt you.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         But he will if you and your people continue 
                         to believe in him and follow him.
 
                         
               
                                     JAMALA
                         No, he will save us!

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         By laboring you in the sun until extinction?
 
                         
               
                                     JAMALA
                         If we finish the temple, Jonas will 
                         make the sky orange. It will be safe 
                         to come out in the light. There will 
                         be no more sickness.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         The sky, orange?

               
                                     JAMALA
                         The sky. Up there.

               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, I know what the sky is. Why?
 
                         
               
                                     JAMALA
                         When the sky's orange, it's good. There's 
                         no more sickness.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         And Jonas can make the sky orange?
 
                         
               
                                     JAMALA
                         Yes, he can.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         How do you know?

               
                                     JAMALA
                         He say's he can.

               
                                     JACK
                         Do you know what he's talking about?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I believe so.

               
               
               
               Hanson tells Sam of his plans for the temple

               
               
               
                                     HANSON
                         It's going to be magnificent. Isn't 
                         it?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         What's the point Jonas, by the time 
                         it's built there'll be no one left to 
                         worship you.
 
               
                                     HANSON
                         Please. Mere survival for these people 
                         will require unquestioning faith, pure 
                         devotion. They must believe in me, if 
                         I'm to lead them into the desert, to 
                         the promised land. I'm merely separating 
                         the wheat from the chaff. Besides I'm 
                         supposed to be crazy, right?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I never said you were crazy.

               
                                     HANSON
                         But you think it don't you? That's alright. 
                         I still have faith in you even if you 
                         don't believe in me, yet. You'll come 
                         around.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I don't think so, Jonas.

               
                                     HANSON
                         Come here.

               
               
               
               Teal'c draws a picture

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         What is it?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It's is something O have seen the Goa'ulds

                         in the air.

                         What, protection from the radiation, 
                         like this planets sun?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The device I saw appeared to turn the 
                         sky orange.
 
               
                                     JAMALA
                         The cave painting tells of this. They 
                         show this symbol.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Have you ever actually seen one of these 
                         things he's talking about?" Jamala nods.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Where?

               
               
               
               Hanson show's sam a Goa'uld device

                         Looks like something the Goa'ulds left 
                         behind. What I gathered from the local 
                         folklore is that the ancient gods used 
                         it to make the sky orange, to protect 
                         the people from the sun sickness.

                         Yes.

               
                                     SAM
                         You don't know how to work it?

                         You never cared about me coming here 
                         because you wanted me, Jonas, you just 
                         wanted me to figure out how to turn 
                         this thing on for you.
 
               
                                     HANSON
                         Oh no! That's not true, I sincerely 
                         hope that one day you will agree to 
                         be my Goddess. Turn it on.

                         What if I won't?

               
                                     HANSON
                         The we will watch every last cave dweller 
                         die in the sun, before I kill us both.

                         So you betrayed your gods, as I am betraying

                         The beings I betrayed were not Gods. 
                         They had power, but power alone does 
                         not make one a god. Do you understand?

                         We also have to do something about Captain

                         device, we could seriously undermine

                         Yes, I can turn it on. But there must 
                         be two.
 
               
                                     DANIEL

                         Hanson may not no, he needs the second

                         Thank you. Where was the first device 
                         found? Then the second device is...
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Your assuming the Goa'ulds just shut 
                         them down and left them in place.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         That is correct.

               
                                     JACK
                         I'm sorry Teal'c. Your calculations 
                         could be way off. Conner doesn't have 
                         time for us to be wrong. I'll go after 
                         him. You try to find that second device. 
                         I'll try to meet you back here.
 
               
               
               
               Jack leaves. Later, Daniel, Teal'c and Jamala are walking through 
               the tree's. They come to a stone platform

               Jack has managed to sneak into the compound. He walks up to Connor 
               who is still tied to the stake

                         to stick around but some brain dead 
                         sycophant left my buddy out here to 
                         die. So were out of here.

                                     HANSON
                         My children. Today is a great day! The 
                         sun stood still in the heavens, and 
                         hasted not to go down about a whole 
                         day. I have the power to help, and to 
                         cast down. But fear not, stand still, 
                         and see the salvation of the Lord." 
                         Today, we will bury the doorway, that 
                         brings forth demons who threaten to 
                         undo us. But first I will send those 
                         evil undoers who have already invaded 
                         our world, back to the hell from whence 
                         they came.Fear not, for I the lord your 
                         God, control the gateway to the underworld.
 
                         
               
               
               
               He activates the gate, which is lying flat on the ground

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         You said you wouldn't kill them.

               
                                     HANSON
                         I'm not, I'm sending them back to Earth.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Without sending the signal to open the 
                         iris they'll die.
 
               
                                     HANSON
                         Please Sam, I'm having a moment here.I 
                         am the lord your God, there is nothing 
                         I cannot do. No one is greater then 
                         I. No one is more powerful then I. Throw 
                         them in.
 
               
               
               
               Jack and Connor are pushed to the edge of the gate. Daniel suddenly 
               appears and stands on a rock
 
               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Wait! Stop!

               
                                     JAMALA
                         Back away!

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Listen to me, no matter what Jonas has 
                         shown you or done for you, he is not 
                         a God.
 
               
                                     HANSON
                         Don't you listen to him! They are demons, 
                         agents of the devil! I am your savior!
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Were not demons, for crying out loud.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Daniel picks up a gun

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         This is not magical power. It is called 
                         a gun, and it is a machine.
 
               
                                     HANSON
                         Do as I say! Or you will all die!

               
                                     JACK
                         Do as he says and you will die.

               
                                     HANSON
                         Do not betray me, after all I have done 
                         fore you! I promised you I would bring 
                         you out of the caves, into the light. 
                         Today I fulfill that promised. Behold 
                         the magical power that belongs to your 
                         god! I give you the sun.I give you the 
                         world.
 
               
               
               
               The orange light comes out, but nothing else happens

               
               
               
                                     HANSON
                         What's wrong?

               
                                     SAM
                         I don't know!

               
                                     HANSON
                         Fix it!

               
                                     DANIEL
                         It's a machine, I can make it work, 
                         and so can you, just like Jamala there 
                         can fire that staff. Now I'll show you 
                         how, there are two devices. And both 
                         must be turned on for the shield to 
                         work. Watch.
 
               
               
               
               Jamala fires a staff blast into the air. Teal'c switches on the 
               other machine and a protective barrier is formed, against the 
               sun
 
               
               
               
                                     MAN
                         Look! Look!

               
                                     HANSON
                         I'm taking you with me!

               
               
               
               He grabs Sam, but Jack jumps him. Finally the villagers attack 
               him and he is thrown into the stargate
 
               
               
               
               Later, Sam speaks with Jack

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         I think were ready.

               
                                     JACK
                         Think we should tell them to bury the 
                         gate after were gone?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Teal'c seems to think the Goa'uld won't 
                         be back.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         maybe we should come back and check 
                         on these guys.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I think we've done enough, don't you?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Something else on your mind?

               
                                     SAM
                         I had the chance to end this, Colonel, 
                         he literally asked me to do it.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Killing a man is no badge of honor, 
                         captain.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I know.

               
                                     JACK
                         Look, I'm no expert on this thing.
 
                         
               
               
               
               He has the bible

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         I generally read one commandment, and 
                         I think it's the first.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         I am the Lord your God, and you shall 
                         take no other God's before me?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Okay, so it's not the first one. I'm 
                         talking about the No Killing one. No 
                         matter what the reason, every time you 
                         break it, you take one step closer to 
                         Hanson.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Thanks.

               
                                     JACK
                         So, you going to be alright?

               
                                     JAMALA
                         Yes.The world outside the caves, it's 
                         very big, yes?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, it's bigger then you can imagine.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Daniel dials the gate

               
               THE END
