                         Better hang on to something Mr. Secretary. 
                         This is how we open the front door around 
                         here.

                         My God, General it.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I thought you might be impressed.

               
                                     SECRETARY
                         What exactly am I looking at?

               
                                     SAM
                         We think your looking at an even horizon 
                         of an artificial-created wormhole, through 
                         our space time to a point tens, even 
                         hundreds of light years away. Sir.
 
                         
               
                                     SECRETARY
                         Uh-huh.

               
                                     HARRIMAN
                         SG-5, the mission is a go for standard 
                         recon.
 
               
                                     SECRETARY
                         And do we know where they’re going?
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         The planets designation is P3C-117.
 
                         
               
                                     SECRETARY
                         Do you have any idea what's out there?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         No sir that would be why we're going.
 
                         
               
                                     SECRETARY
                         I'm not sure Colonel, is it? Because 
                         to be perfectly frank this administration 
                         is not satisfied with the current progress 
                         of the Stargate program.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Begging the secretary’s pardon, sir, 
                         but we've already visited 19 separate 
                         worlds.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I believe he is referring specifically 
                         to the volume of technology being returned 
                         on your planetary missions.
 
               
                                     SECRETARY
                         The president and Joint Chiefs were 
                         under the impression that the SG teams 
                         would bring back superior technologies.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         I'm sorry, I thought we were explorers.
 
                         
               
                                     SECRETARY
                         Oh you are Dr. Jackson, but even Marco 
                         Polo when he came back from the far 
                         east brought more then just a few exotic 
                         spices.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Mr. Secretary, it's been my observation, 
                         that, whether it's out here on earth 
                         or out there, cultures with advanced 
                         technology tend not to like to share 
                         it.
 
               
                                     SECRETARY
                         So we're wasting our time?

               
                                     JACK
                         Would you interpret what I just said 
                         as.?
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Colonel.

               
                                     SAM
                         Sir, with respect, this program is quite 
                         probably humanities most important endeavor.
 
                         
               
                                     SECRETARY
                         They said the something about the Apollo 
                         program, they brought back moon rocks. 
                         You may have noticed we haven't been 
                         to the moon in 25 years.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What kind of comparison is that?'

               
                                     SECRETARY
                         Colonel, if one of those Goa'uld ships 
                         were coming here right now, have you 
                         brought back one thing we can fight 
                         them off with?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         What technology do you seek?

               
                                     SECRETARY
                         You tell me, what's out there?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         There are still technologies even the 
                         Goa'uld seek. There is a creator that 
                         lives on an unpopulated world, it possesses 
                         powers of invisibility.
 
               
                                     SECRETARY
                         Invisibility? As in stealth?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         That is correct, it can appear and disappear 
                         at will. I was once commanded to retrieve 
                         the creature, to leer it's secrets. 
                         Apophis took the lives of two of my 
                         men as punishment for failure to retrieve 
                         it.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         If we manage to capture one alive, it 
                         could provide us with a serious tactical 
                         advantage the next time we came against 
                         the Goa'uld.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Sounds like a mission to me.

               
               
               
               SG1 go through the gate. Jack is the last one through

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Carter? Daniel! Teal'c!

               
                                     SAM
                         Here sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         What have we got?

               
                                     SAM
                         I thought I saw something just as we 
                         came through, sir.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'c? Did we score already?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I saw movement as well, this way.

               
                                     JACK
                         I hope these things are as big as you 
                         say they are. There is enough tranquilizer 
                         in these darts to knock out a Rhino.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         They are very large, but extremely maneuverable 
                         in the air. We will find them most vulnerable 
                         when they hover.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Hover? Like a hummingbird?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         With teeth.

               
                                     JACK
                         Alright, well there's nothing out there.Let's 
                         get back to the gear and...where's the 
                         Stargate?
 
               
               
               
               The Stargate has disappeared

               
               Titles

               
               
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         I don't like this.

               
                                     DANNY
                         To Teal'c, Did anything like this ever 
                         happen to you before?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It has not, if we became misdirected, 
                         and needed to locate the Stargate, we 
                         had a Goa'uld homing device to find 
                         it.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Do we have a homing device?

               
                                     JACK
                         Course we do, it's with the gear.

               
                                     DANNY
                         Which is by the Stargate.

               
                                     JACK
                         Captain, let's start a box search. You 
                         and Teal'c take off in that direction, 
                         stay in radio contact.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Yes, Sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel, you're with me.

               
               
               
               Jack and Daniel head off. Daniel see's something and stops Jack
 
               
               
               
               
                                     DANNY
                         There.

               
               
               
               You can just make out that one of the invisible creatures is 
               there
 
               
               
               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I just hope it becomes visible once 
                         we traq it, otherwise will never be 
                         able find it.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'c, what the hell are you doing?
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It did not come from me.

               
                                     JACK
                         Oh.

               
               
               
               Apophis is also tracking the creatures

               
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You are certain it was Apophis?

               
                                     JACK
                         Oh yeah.

               
                                     DANNY
                         Okay, what are we gonna do? We have 
                         to do something.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         That's not our mission.

               
                                     DANNY
                         Ah, just forget our mission. Now he's 
                         the only one who knows where Sha're 
                         and Skaara are, we may not get another 
                         chance like this.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What kind of entourage is he gonna have 
                         with him?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Two perhaps three Jaffa guards.

               
                                     SAM
                         Are we seriously entertaining the idea 
                         of going after Apophis? Sir, we're not 
                         prepared for an attack! Half the ordnance 
                         we're carrying is tranquilizer guns.
 
                         
               
                                     DANNY
                         So we use one of them to knock him out. 
                         He will wake up in a holding cell with 
                         out his guards, without his technology, 
                         he will have no choice but to tell us 
                         everything we want to know about Goa'uld 
                         technology, about were Sha're is.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Can I remind you that we don't know 
                         where the Stargate is?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         He will have the Goa'uld homing device 
                         I spoke of.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         There you are.

               
                                     JACK
                         Alright, you know what were up against 
                         better then anyone, can we do what Daniel 
                         is talking about?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         We have the element of surprise, I have 
                         my staff weapon. If we eliminate his 
                         personal guard quickly, I believe so.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'c, this character used to be a 
                         God to you, you're sure you're okay 
                         with this?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I am okay.

               
                                     JACK
                         Okay, Carter?

               
                                     SAM
                         If were going to do this we better plan 
                         the attack very carefully.
 
               
               
               
               Apophis and his guards are walking through the tree's. They notice 
               a footprint belong to SG1. Teal'c jumps out of the tree's and 
               shoots at the Jaffa, but misses. Sam starts to fire her gun and 
               Jack and Daniel join in. Jack walks up to Apophis and tries to 
               get some tranquilliser into him, but Apophis has his shield up. 
               A Jaffa throws a staff weapon to him and he shoot's Jack in the 
               chest.
 
               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel!

               
               
               
               She jumps up and is also killed by Apophis, followed by Daniel 
               who is shot in the chest.
 
               
               
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Teal'c, Sholva!

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Tal'shek 'ka mel. I die free.

               
               
               
               Apophis turns and prepares to fire, but when he looks, Teal'c 
               and the bodies of SG1 have disappeared.
 
               
               
               
               The team are inside some sort of hut. Daniel wakes first and 
               goes over to check on Sam's wound.
 
               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Hey, what are you doing?

               
                                     DANNY
                         I felt that blast kill me, I mean, I 
                         thought I thought we were dead, weren't 
                         we dead?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah.

               
                                     DANNY
                         Okay, well I thought Heaven would be 
                         a little more upscale.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Oh, I don't think this is Heaven.

               
                                     DANNY
                         Jack?Jack.

               
                                     JACK
                         What? God.

               
                                     DANNY
                         It's okay.

               
                                     JACK
                         What the hell was that?

               
                                     DANNY
                         It's okay.

               
                                     JACK
                         Wasn't I just?

               
                                     SAM
                         Killed.

               
                                     JACK
                         Killed as in.

               
                                     SAM
                         Dead.

               
                                     JACK
                         Dead.

               
                                     SAM
                         Yeah, we know we saw it happen. Same 
                         thing happened to us.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, this is a surprise then.

               
                                     DANNY
                         I don't know what happened to Teal'c.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel, my side arm’s gone.

               
                                     JACK
                         So is mine.

               
               
               
               One of the Nox enters

               
               
               
                                     DANNY
                         Hello.Hi, I'm Daniel Jackson. This is 
                         Captain Carter and this is...
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Colonel Jack O'Neill, SG-1. Sorry to 
                         drop in on you like this but we were 
                         dead.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Do you know where our friend is? Another 
                         like us.
 
               
               
               
               Lya motions for them to follow her

               
               
               
                                     DANNY
                         Is this your village? Aresh? Tao Aki? 
                         We need to find our friend, Teal'c.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Ah...fruit. Nothing like coming back 
                         from the dead to build up an apetite. 
                         Thank you, thank you very much.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         Did you do this? Did you heal us? I 
                         think they're a family.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Speaks softly back, of what?

               
                                     DANNY
                         I have no idea.

               
                                     JACK
                         Well we should ask them to give us back 
                         our weapons.Listen, those things you 
                         found on us, those things you took from 
                         us, the big things, they're very dangerous 
                         and.. Hey..Teal'c, thank God.Please 
                         tell me you know what’s going on around 
                         here.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I cannot tell you that.

               
                                     JACK
                         What about Apophis, you got a line on 
                         him?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I do not.

                         Any idea how far away from the Stargate

                         Maybe you should ask them about the

                         they don't really say much at all. At 
                         the moment I'm trying to figure out 
                         if they’re human.

                         However, if Shak'l does survive his 
                         injuries he will tell the Goa'uld where 
                         to find you.

                         Then at least let us help you in exchange 
                         for what you did for us.
 
               
                                     MAN
                         You must go.

               
                                     JACK
                         Right. Well for now, well just go over 
                         here. Excuse me.
 
               
               
               
               They walk away so that they can speak in private

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Alright, do you know this Shak'l?

               
                                     TEAL’C
                         He served in my command when I was first 
                         prime of Apophis.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, we can't just walk away. I mean 
                         if we hadn't attracted Apophis, he wouldn't 
                         even be here.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         And we can't kill him either.I wasn't 
                         considering it, I was just stating a 
                         fact.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Okay, we'll take Shak'l back, it's not 
                         quite as good as having Apophis, but 
                         he can't stay here.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Apophis will not allow us to leave this 
                         world alive. You have challenged him, 
                         and I have betrayed him. Even if we 
                         were to locate the Stargate, leaving 
                         this world will be difficult.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         So we're back to square one. We can't 
                         leave Shak'l here and we can't get him 
                         back to the gate, without running in 
                         to Apophis.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Okay, we'll try and learn everything 
                         we can about the Nox, it's part of why 
                         we came here right? In the meantime, 
                         I think you better check on your friend. 
                         Whatever we end up doing, I don't think 
                         he is going to wake up in a very good 
                         mood. Know what I mean?
 
               
               
               
               A Jaffa runs back to Apophis

               
               
               
                                     JAFFA
                         Apophis, Kree. Shak'l Tak.

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Teal'c was standing before me, waiting 
                         to pay the price of his betrayal, I 
                         had him in my hand!
 
               
                                     JAFFA
                         We have searched.

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Where are the others? Where is Shak'l? 
                         I saw them die, they could not just 
                         disappear. Unless they have learned 
                         the power of the beast.
 
               
               
               
               Lya goes into the hut, where Teal'c is guarding Shak'l

               
               
               
                                     LYA
                         Must he be bound so tight?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         If not, he will escape when he awakens.
 
                         
               
                                     LYA
                         He deceives you, he's awake now!

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Were you waiting for me to turn my back, 
                         Shak'l?
 
               
                                     SHAK'L
                         As you taught me. Have you come to kill 
                         me?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I offer you the chance to join me. The 
                         Goa'uld are not gods.
 
               
                                     SHAK'L
                         Lies.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         These people are that of the first world. 
                         The Tau'ri.
 
               
                                     SHAK'L
                         You waist your breath. I shall rest, 
                         strengthen by the thought of the reword 
                         I shall get when I present your head, 
                         to Apophis.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         The time of Apophis, will soon end. 
                         And on that day, I will return to our 
                         world, and offer freedom to all Jaffa. 
                         It is ashamed you will not live to see 
                         it. For when you fail to kill me, it 
                         will be your head.
 
               
               
               
               Daniel is making an arrow

               
               
               
                                     DANNY
                         I really don't get the point of this.
 
                         
               
               
               
               
               
               Jack has made a bow

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Well, if we run into Apophis again, 
                         will be prepared.
 
               
                                     DANNY
                         But what good are bows and arrows gonna 
                         do against that kind of fire power?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Exactly how I want him to think.

               
                                     DANNY
                         Yeah.

               
                                     SAM
                         Any weapon is better then no weapon 
                         when it comes to survival.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You guys just don't want to give up, 
                         do you?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         No.

               
                                     SAM
                         That's what happens when you spend most 
                         your life in Special Forces.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Somehow I don't think we'd make very 
                         good Nox.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I think you're right

               
                                     NEFRAYU
                         Is that a weapon?

               
                                     JACK
                         Yes, and you can't have it.

               
               
               
               Jack walks away with Nefrayu following him. He practises using 
               the bow and arrow
 
               
               
               
                                     NEFRAYU
                         If you blunted this stick this would 
                         be good for knocking fruit from the 
                         highest branches.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, I bet it would.

               
                                     NEFRAYU
                         Why do you want to fight them?

               
                                     JACK
                         I don't want to.

               
                                     NEFRAYU
                         Then don't.

               
                                     JACK
                         It's not that simple. Look, I believe 
                         in peace, just like you, I do.
 
               
                                     NEFRAYU
                         Then why do you fight?

               
               
                                     JACK
                         Because our enemy gives us no option, 
                         sometimes turning the other cheek just 
                         doesn't work.
 
               
                                     NEFRAYU
                         I'll learn to understand them better.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         No, I wouldn't do that if I were you.
 
                         
               
               
               
               A Fenri appears above them

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Go on, run. Run!

               
               
               
               Nefrayu runs away. Jack tries to shoot the Fenri, but misses
 
               
               
               
               
               
               
               Daniel is with oper, who is tasting the sap from a tree.

               
               
               
                                     OPER
                         Mmm. You?

               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Oh, no, thank you. I'm trying to quit. 
                         Is that where you get your medicine, 
                         the forest?
 
               
                                     OPER
                         We get life from the forest, from everything.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         But you must have medicine. Or you must 
                         have some knowledge that we don't have, 
                         I guess what I'm saying is, we could 
                         learn a lot from you, I really wish 
                         that we could be friends with the Nox.

                         Well, why don't you teach me now? For 
                         example you seem to have an almost psychic 
                         ability. Are you born with it?

                         How'd you do that?

               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         It is not the Fenri that have the ability 
                         to hide, it is the Nox.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         So you hid the Stargate?

               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         The Fenri was near by when you came 
                         through, attracted by your arrival. 
                         We conceal them until the hunters are 
                         gone.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         We're not hunters.

               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         You tried to kill the Fenri a moment 
                         ago.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         I was trying to protect the boy.

                         You protect his body after poisoning 
                         his mind.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Will you listen to me? The reason the 
                         Goa'uld hunt those flying things is 
                         because they want to know how it's able 
                         to disappear, if they find out it's 
                         you.

                         Our ways have served us for as long

                                     JACK
                         But they didn't know you existed before. 
                         Once they know they'll enslave you, 
                         it's what they do.
 
               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         We are slaves to no-one.

                                     DANIEL
                         How long have the Goa'uld been coming 
                         here to hunt?

                                     DANIEL
                         Why did you not bury the Stargate, do 
                         you know that that would stop them?
 
                         
               
                                     OPER
                         And they would know someone had buried 
                         it.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Right, of course.

               
               
               
               Jack and Daniel talk, back at the village

                                     JACK
                         Well, guess what? They're not human.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         No, they're humanoid, but definitely 
                         more advanced than anything that has 
                         evolved on Earth.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         That creature that we came here for, 
                         it has no power at all. None. Zip.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Well then, how does it become invisible?
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         They do it. The Nox hide it from us.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         They make it invisible to protect it.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Well, this makes things even worse.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         If Apophis finds out that it's them 
                         that have this power.

                         He will try to possess it, if he finds 
                         he cannot he will bombard this planet's 
                         surface from high above. What he cannot 
                         possess he destroys.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         So, we've gotta get Shak'l out of here.

                         My wound will heal. We must find Shak'l.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         We will.

               
               
               
               They perform the healing ceremony

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         You brought us back the same way?

               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         Yes.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         You become visible during the ceremony.
 
                         
               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         When we are performing the ritual of 
                         life we are unable to shield ourselves.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         A weakness.

               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         We are hidden again.

               
               
               
               Teal'c tracks Shak'l

               
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Shak'l has been this way.

               
                                     JACK
                         How long ago was he here? Teal'c?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         He is very skilled at evading capture.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Did you teach him that too?

               
               
               
               Later, Nefrayu talks to Jack

               
               
               
                                     NEFRAYU
                         I am curious to see a Goa'uld, I have 
                         never seen one.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         No. You should go some place where it's 
                         safe, go where the other Nox are.
 
                         
               
                                     NEFRAYU
                         They are far away.

               
                                     JACK
                         Nafrayu, please, go on, scoot. Kids.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Shak'l approaches Apophis

               
               
               
                                     SHAK'L
                         Eis'thra! Eis'thra!

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         He is telling him of the Nox, about 
                         their powers, Apophis will be pleased.
 
                         
               
               
               
               They go back to warn the Nox

               
               
               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         Nothing has changed for us.

               
                                     JACK
                         No, everything has changed.

               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         We will take you to the doorway.

               
                                     JACK
                         Look, Anteaus, we can came back through 
                         that gate, we can bring reinforcements.
 
                         
               
                                     OPER
                         Anteaus, where is Nafrayu?

               
               
               
               Apophis comes across Nefrayu

               
               
               
                                     NEFRAYU
                         Nefrayu.

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Nefrayu?

               
               
               
               Apophis uses the ribbon device

               
               
               
               
               
               Jack, Daniel, and Aneaus are searching for Nafrayu.

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         I told him to go home.

               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         I told you the same. The very young 
                         do not always do what they are told.
 
                         
               
               Nefrayu is found

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Feel like a trap to you, Captain?

               
                                     SAM
                         Yes, Sir.

               
                                     LYA
                         We must begin the ritual.

               
                                     JACK
                         No, wait.

               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Jack, they can bring him back.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Shak'l has told Apophis of your ritual, 
                         that you cannot remain hidden when you 
                         perform it.
 
               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         But we must.

               
                                     JACK
                         The minute you start that ritual, they'll 
                         attack.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Give us our weapons, we can defend you.
 
                         
               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         There will be no killing.

               
                                     JACK
                         Alright, fine. We'll find our own way 
                         back to the Stargate, we're certainly 
                         not gonna sit around here and watch 
                         a slaughter.Let's go.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Jack!

               
                                     JACK
                         That's an order.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Please, we were just.We were trying 
                         to help.
 
               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         Goodbye, Daniel.

               
                                     JACK
                         Think they bought it?

               
                                     SAM
                         Almost believed it myself.

               
                                     LYA
                         We could take Nafrayu to the others.
 
                         
               
               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         It would take too long.

               
               
               
               The team prepare to defend the Nox

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Where did that come from?

               
                                     JACK
                         Well, the wee folk missed one. So Shak'l 
                         thinks we're unarmed, Apophis thinks 
                         he's invulnerable.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         And they're right. I think I found a 
                         flaw in your plan.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Their weapons aren't as affective in 
                         close, we'll be better off with hand 
                         to hand.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         What of Apophis? He's protected by an 
                         energy field, we both fired our weapons 
                         directly at it.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Did you see what happened when one of 
                         his guards tossed him a staff weapon?
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Passed right through.So you're guessing 
                         that the shield's deflection capability 
                         is directly proportional to the amount 
                         of kinetic energy being directed at 
                         it?
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         So you're saying that an arrow or dart 
                         being much slower in velocity than, 
                         say, a bullet..
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Just might make it through. It's a big 
                         gamble, Sir.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, you ready?

               
               
               
               The team lay in ambush. Jack is on the ground, covered in leaves
 
               
               
               
               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         They’re coming.

               
               
               
               Apophis arrives and a fight ensues. Jack prepares to kill him
 
               
               
               
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Fool, I will kill you.

               
                                     JACK
                         Again?

               
               
               
               Jack shoots, but the Nox spirit Apophis away

               
               
               
               No! They'll be back! They won't spare you!

               
               
               
               SG1 arrive where the stargate should be

               
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         This is where the Stargate should be.
 
                         
               
               
               
               Anteaus appears in front of them.

               
               
               
               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         We sent your enemy through the doorway.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         They'll be back.

               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         When you are gone we will bury it.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         They'll come in ships next time; they'll 
                         bring an army.
 
               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         Perhaps.He wanted to wish you farewell.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         I'm glad you're okay.

               
                                     NEFRAYU
                         And you. We sent your weapons back through 
                         the doorway.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Yeah, speaking of the Stargate.

               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         You fear for us, yes?

               
                                     JACK
                         Yes.

               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         Why?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It is our way that the strong defend 
                         the weak.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         We're afraid for you.

               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         Before you go, O'Neill, there is something 
                         we would have you see.
 
               
               Anteaus waves his hand and a large city appears in the sky

               
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Oh my God.

               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         Fear not.

               
               
               
               The stargate appears

               
               
               
                                     ANTEAUS
                         Maybe one day you will learn, that your 
                         way is not the only way.
 
               
               
               
               The Nox disappear

               
               
                                     JACK
                         Why didn't he tell us about this before?
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         I think, in their way, they did.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It appears they possess a form of technology 
                         far greater than that of the Goa'uld.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         They looked so helpless.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         And now they're going to bury the Stargate 
                         and we can never come back. We should've 
                         listened.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         The very young do not always do as they're 
                         told.Just a little something the Nox 
                         told me one time. Something worth taking 
                         home.
 
               
               THE END
