                                      STARGATE SG1

                                      Episode 201

                                  "THE SERPENTS LAIR"

                                           By

                                       Brad Wright




               The team are on the Goa'uld mothership

               
                                     JACK
                         Captain Carter?

               
                                     SAM
                         Sir?

               
                                     JACK
                         Were you able to put enough C4 around 
                         this ship to make a dent?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         We placed charges where they should 
                         generate secondary explosions. So, yes, 
                         sir. Should make a helluva dent.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Thank you Captain.

               
                                     SAM
                         Given enough time, I might be able to 
                         figure out..
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Negative. We should expect some of their 
                         reinforcements through that door any 
                         second. Stand by to detonate your charges 
                         on my order.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Yes, sir.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Wait.

               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel, if we don't stop them now, we 
                         may never stop them.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, I know that.

               
               
               
               He get's out some C4 and places it for maximum damage

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Let's just make as big a dent as possible. 
                         Okay?
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Ready and awaiting your order, sir.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Okay. Well, I suppose now is the time 
                         for me to say something profound. Nothing 
                         comes to mind. Let's do it.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         O'Neill. Apophis' ship approaches.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         We overheard in the Gateroom he said 
                         he would rejoin Klorel once they came 
                         out of the shadows.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'c, if we can knock out this ship, 
                         will it stop them?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         It will not. Apophis' vessel is equipped 
                         with defence shields. He will still 
                         be able to destroy your cities from 
                         high above.
 
               
               
               
               Jaffa are trying to get into the room

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Tell me those C4 charges are on automatic 
                         timer.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         They're on automatic timer.

               
                                     JACK
                         Good, how long do we have?

               
                                     SAM
                         24 hours.

               
                                     JACK
                         24 hours?

               
                                     SAM
                         At the time, sir, I thought we were 
                         still light years away.
 
               
               
               
               The Jaffa are banging on the door

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Just a minute! Teal'c, work with me 
                         buddy. Is there any other way outta 
                         here?
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         None.

               
               
               
               The Jaffa are coming through

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Cover up. This is turning out to be 
                         a bad day.
 
               
               
               
               A shock grenade is thrown into the room

               
               Titles

               
               The team are in a cell

               
               
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         O'Neill?

               
                                     JACK
                         Teal'c. Teal'c, I can't see.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I am blinded as well. It will pass.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         What the hell was that?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         A Goa'uld shock grenade. Though extremely 
                         painful, its effects are temporary.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         That's good to hear.

               
               
               
               Jack put's his hand on Sam. She bites it

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Ow! God! Ow!

               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel? Sorry, sir. It's just so dark.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Oh, Carter! It's all right. I like your 
                         attitude.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         It isn't dark. We're blind. And we failed.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         All right, take it easy Daniel. We've 
                         been in worse situations than this.
 
                         
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         Not to my knowledge.

               
                                     JACK
                         Thanks Teal'c.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Right now, they're getting ready to 
                         wipe out the major cities of Earth. 
                         They'll do it from orbit, out of reach.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel..

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Jack, I've already been through this 
                         once before. I've seen this before.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel, will you relax? You've been 
                         through it before and you survived. 
                         We're just having a bad day.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel, I think I'm starting to see 
                         something.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         My sight returns as well.

               
                                     JACK
                         Now that's what I wanna hear. Carter, 
                         if someone comes in here, you bite them 
                         in the hand.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Yes, sir.

               
               
               
               Klorel is placed in the sarcophagus. Bra'tac is there

               
               
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Tal kree, shak!

               
                                     JAFFA
                         Forgive me, master. I will not fail 
                         Klorel again.
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         No. You will not.

               
               
               
               Bra'tac kills him

               
               
               
               
               
               SGC Control Room

               
               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         What the hell are you doing here?

               
                                     SAMUELS
                         Reporting for duty, sir. I'm to co-ordinate 
                         with the Pentagon.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         By whose order?

               
                                     SAMUELS
                         The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. At 
                         the request of Senator Kinsey. He did 
                         try to contact you.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Maybe you can tell me why our forces 
                         haven't gone on full alert? If we don't 
                         get our assets moving now, they'll be 
                         caught on the ground.

                         The current thinking at the Pentagon 
                         is to do nothing that would alert the 
                         Goa'uld we know they're there.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Let me guess whose bright idea that 
                         was.
 
               
                                     SAMUELS
                         General Hammond, may I speak freely? 
                         I know I seem to have lost your respect, 
                         sir, for whatever reason, but we wouldn't 
                         be in this situation, that is, at the 
                         brink of war with the Goa'uld, if you 
                         had heeded my advice and buried the 
                         Stargate in the first place.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Was that, I told you so, Colonel Samuels?
 
                         
               
                                     SAMUELS
                         I'm not here to point fingers. Sir. 
                         I'm here to co-ordinate out pre-emptive 
                         strike against the Goa'uld ships. That's 
                         if the President approves. The Joint 
                         Chiefs are briefing him now.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         And with what do you intend to strike?
 
                         
               
                                     SAMUELS
                         A new weapon, sir. I've helped to oversee 
                         its development at Area 51 with Colonel 
                         Maybourne. Two prototypes are being 
                         prepared for launch at Vandenberg Air 
                         Force base as we speak. If all goes 
                         well, history should mark this day by 
                         two brilliant and unexplained flashes 
                         in the night sky. The world should never 
                         know how close we came to Armageddon.

                                     BRA'TAC
                         Your son was struck down by the humans 
                         on Klorel's vessel.
 
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         He has been placed in his sarcophagus?
 
                         
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Yes my Lord, but his wounds were great. 
                         It will take time to revive him.
 
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         What of the humans?

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         I thought to wait until Klorel.

               
                                     APOPHIS
                         No! Execute them now!

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         I will see to it myself.

                         We hold our position. The humans of 
                         this world still send no challenge.

                         Yet they find their way to my son. We 
                         will attack their world when Klorel 
                         has risen again. They will pay a hundredfold 
                         for their insolence.

                         The Goa'uld's unexplained delay is buying 
                         us the necessary time to prepare. We'll 
                         launch a strike as soon as they enter

                         What makes this weapon of yours so special?

                         An otherwise ordinary Mark 12A warhead 
                         has been enriched by the alien material, 
                         naqahdah.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         The Stargate element?

               
                                     SAMUELS
                         Yes sir. As you know, a small amount 
                         of the raw ore was found by SG5 and 
                         brought back some months ago. The warheads 
                         should now yield in excess of 1000 megatons. 
                         each. We call them our Goa'uld busters. 
                         Our plan is to launch two rockets simultaneously 
                         into retrograde orbit. Now, the naqahdah-enriched 
                         warheads themselves are made of the 
                         same material as our stealth aircraft 
                         and should go undetected by their radar.
 
                         
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Assuming the Goa'uld have anything remotely 
                         like radar.
 
               
                                     SAMUELS
                         It's our best shot, sir. And I'm sure 
                         the President agrees or he wouldn't 
                         have initiated countdown. Currently 
                         we stand at T minus 3 hours. We'll hold 
                         at two minutes while the Goa'uld come 
                         within range. It's going to work Sir. 
                         The Goa'uld should be taken completely 
                         off guard.

                         If you're wrong, every country on Earth 
                         will be caught off guard. If it were 
                         up to me, I'd strongly recommend ..

                         blurry any more.

                         Do you know all I have done to regain 
                         the trust of Apophis and join this campaign?

                         Hello again, old friend. Your son grows 
                         strong. One day, he will be a great 
                         warrior. But you should not have come.

                         I stand by my friends. I believe this 
                         world may be our only hope in one day 
                         overcoming the false gods.
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Yes. As pathetic as that might seem 
                         at the moment, I agree.
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         You do?

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         I may have even been able to save this 
                         world had you not interfered.

                         Hey! What do you think we've been trying 
                         to do? It is our world you're talking 
                         about.
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Enough, human! This is not the place 
                         to talk of these things. I have been 
                         ordered by Apophis himself to execute 
                         you. An order I intend to disregard.

                         What in God's name are they waiting 
                         for?
 
               
                                     SAMUELS
                         My mission analysis team at the Pentagon 
                         believes they're waiting to see what 
                         moves we make. Amazingly, neither the 
                         Russians nor the Chinese have detected 
                         the Goa'uld presence yet. Of course, 
                         they're not looking. So, from space, 
                         we should appear to be a vulnerable 
                         and unsuspecting world.

                         Sir, there may be another reason why 
                         they haven't attacked. WE just completed 
                         the computer enhancement. There was 
                         an energy burst; coming from what we 
                         think may be the bridge of one of the 
                         ships, recorded at 1750 hours. Just 
                         before they stopped.

                         For all we know that flash, whatever 
                         it was, could be part of the ships normal 
                         function.

                         Except that the burst came from within 
                         the ship itself, sir, and it was fairly 
                         powerful.

                         I hardly think so. For one thing, it's 
                         impossible to gate to a ship. Forgive 
                         me, sir, I know how important SG-1 is

                         Here are you weapons. You will need 
                         them.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Bra'tac, you mentioned something about 
                         saving the world. Care to elaborate 
                         on that?
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         By assaulting Klorel, you have made 
                         that impossible.
 
               
                                     DANIEL

                         Among the Goa'uld, a Pharaoh's power 
                         is more often challenged by their son's 
                         than by their enemies. Once we had joined 
                         battle with your world, I was prepared 
                         to lead my wing against Apophis, in 
                         Klorel's name.

                         Apophis would assume your attack was 
                         ordered by Klorel and reciprocate. A 
                         daring plan.
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         I had hoped to drive a stake of mistrust 
                         between them. Now I fear they will bond 
                         against their common enemy.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         What bond? Klorel's dead.

                         Wait a minute. You put him in that thing 
                         to bring him back?

                         I knew it would delay the attack until 
                         he arose. Perhaps when the warships 
                         of your world attack.

                         say slim.

                         Okay, with any luck at all, this ship 
                         is gonna blow within the hour. It might 
                         be a good idea for us to get to the 
                         other one. Can you do that?

                         That's it. They're in a geo-synchronus 
                         orbit over the United States. Lock in 
                         that attack profile and advise the President 
                         we are go for launch.

                         Yes! I'm sorry sir. For what it's worth, 
                         I seriously doubt SG1 is aboard those 
                         alien ships.

                         has already affected our satellite communications. 
                         It will be difficult to warn the general 
                         public in time to do anything but cause 
                         mass panic. Mr President, I strongly 
                         recommend that we maintain the highest 
                         defence condition at this time and you 
                         should board Air Force One. Yes, sir.

                         How?

               
                                     SAMUELS
                         By sending a bomb to the co- ordinates 
                         that Dr Jackson was talking about. Or 
                         to Chulak.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         We already tried to send a team through 
                         to Dr Jackson's co- ordinates, it won't 
                         work. And I can't think of any military 
                         reason to wipe out the people of Chulak.

                         Well sir, since I am no longer wanted 
                         or needed here, I respectfully request 
                         permission to join one of the teams 
                         headed for the Alpha site, at least 
                         there...
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Permission denied. The idea is to send 
                         the best and brightest, Colonel. When 
                         the time comes, you will stand alongside 
                         the men and women of this command, in 
                         defence of this facility.

                         I ask no more or less of myself. Dismissed!
 
                         
               
               
               
               SG1 stop in the corridor

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         All right, here's what we do...

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         I will lead. You will follow.

               
                                     JACK
                         Right.

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         You will know when it is time.

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Whoa. You're just gonna walk in there 
                         alone?
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         I am Klorel's loyal servant.

               
               
               
               Brat'ac walks into the room and speaks with Klorel

               
               
               
                                     KLOREL
                         Bra'tac.

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         My lord, Klorel.

               
                                     KLOREL
                         Come. Witness the power of your god.
 
                         
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         I cannot.

               
                                     KLOREL
                         Why do you defy me?

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Because you are not a God. You are a 
                         parasite within a child and I despise 
                         you.
 
               
                                     KLOREL
                         Jaffa, kree ty! I am your god!

               
               
               
               Klorel gets out the ribbon device

               
               
               
                                     KLOREL
                         And you will feel my wrath!

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         I die free!

               
               
               
               Outside the room

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Let's go! Daniel, watch our backs!
 
                         
               
               
               
               Sam gives Daniel her gun and he's left alone outside while the 
               other three help Bra'tac. After taking care of the Jaffa, Teal'c 
               holds Klorel
 
               
               
               
               
               
                                     KLOREL
                         Jaffa, tal'shak!

               
               
               
               Outside in the corridor, two Jaffa appear. Daniel kills them
 
               
               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Jack!

               
               
               
               More come around the bend and Daniel recieves a staff blast
 
               
               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Arrgh!

               
               
               
               Jack rushes out

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Daniel, Dammit!

               
                                     DANIEL
                         I'm dead anyway. Just get outta here!
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         I am not leaving you here, Daniel.
 
                         
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Get outta here! You're just gonna blow 
                         up with the other ship anyway! What 
                         difference does it make? Go! Just go! 
                         I'll stay and watch your back.
 
               
               
               
               
               
               Jack places his hand on Daniel's face and goes back to the others
 
               
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         He's staying behind.

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Come.

               
               
               
               They ring over to Apophis' ship

               
               
               
               Meanwhile Daniel crawls along the corridor.

               
               
               
               
               
               The team use Klorel as a hostage

               
               
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Kree, jaffa!

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Come. Come.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         If you fire upon us, I will kill Klorel!
 
                         
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         Bra'tac, how dare you betray me?

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         I have spent 133 years worshipping false 
                         Gods. No more!
 
               
               
               
               The team get out of the room, pushing Klorel back in, as they 
               go
 
               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel, the C4 on the other ship goes 
                         in six minutes.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         How do we blow this ship?

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         When we were on Klorel's vessel, I directed 
                         it closer to this one.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         If we destroy the shield generator of 
                         this vessel, both will be destroyed 
                         in the explosion. Two birds with but 
                         one stone.
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         This way.

               
               
               
               Back with Apophis and Klorel

               
               
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         You disappoint me, my son.

               
                                     KLOREL
                         Father, please forgive me.

               
               
               
               The team and Bra'tac try to figure out how to destroy the shields
 
               
               
               
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         The shield generators are far below. 
                         There, in the very bowels of the ship. 
                         We must climb down several decks, through 
                         the length of the ship. Then taking 
                         our weapons, we must..
 
               
               
               
               Jack gets out two Earth grenades and drops them into the generators
 
               
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Grenades.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         This vessel is no longer protected by 
                         an energy field.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         So that's it?

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         That is it.

               
                                     JACK
                         I think what the Captain is asking is, 
                         what now?
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Now we die.

               
                                     JACK
                         Well that's a bad plan. Where are the 
                         glider bays from here?

                         Sir, Space Command reports the two ships 
                         seem to be moving closer together.

                         What's the status of the shuttle Endeavor?
 
                         
               
                                     HARRIMAN
                         On the pad and standing by.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         We've got to find out what's going on 
                         up there.
 
               
               
               
               Outside the glider bay

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Carte, you and I will go in first. We'll 
                         take up positions to.... Never mind.
 
                         
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Observe.

               
               
               
               He rolls a shock grenade into the room

               
               
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Now that was a grenade! Come!

               
               
               
               They get into two gliders. Jack and Bra'tac in one. Sam and Teal'c 
               in another
 
               
               
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Human, put this on.

               
                                     JACK
                         Will you please stop calling me human?
 
                         
               
               
               
               Meanwhile on Klorels ship, Daniel is healed by the sarcophagus
 
               
               
               
               
               
               
               Apophis' ship. He see's the two ships are too close together
 
               
               
               
               
                                     APOPHIS
                         No!

               
               
               
               Apophis and Klorel ring out

               
               Daniel runs to the DHD on Klorels ship

               
               
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Beta site, beta site.

               
               
               
               Apophis' ships glider bay

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Our time is up. We have got to go.
 
                         
               
                                     SAM
                         Punch it.

               
               
               
               The gliders leave the ship

               
               Daniel opens the gate and runs through

               
               
               
               Shortly afterwards the two ships explode

                                     HARRIMAN
                         Sir, sir, we've got reports from all 
                         over the country. A huge fireball in 
                         the night sky!
 
               
               
               
               On the death gliders

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Bra'tac? Bra'tac! You okay?

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Not bad, for an old man.

               
                                     SAM
                         Colonel? Come in.

               
                                     JACK
                         We're okay, Captain.

               
                                     SAM
                         Same here sir. But I don't think we 
                         bought ourselves much time. Our glider's 
                         had it.
 
               
                                     TEAL'C
                         I concur.

               
                                     SAM
                         We got cooked pretty bad in the explosion.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Captain?

               
                                     SAM
                         We're low on power and in a fairly low 
                         orbit, so I don't imagine it will be 
                         too much longer before we burn up in 
                         Earth's atmosphere.
 
               
                                     JACK
                         Captain, take a look up.

               
               
               
               She see's Earth

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         It's beautiful.

               
                                     JACK
                         Yes, it is.

               
                                     SAM
                         We saved it sir.

               
                                     JACK
                         Yes, we did.

               
               
               
               Control Room

                         Incoming traveller! Incoming traveller! 
                         It's SG-1's signal sir.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Open the iris.

               
               
               
               Daniel comes through the gate

               
               
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Dr Jackson! Was SG-1 aboard one of those 
                         ships?
 
               
                                     DANIEL
                         Ah, yes.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Well, well how did you get

               
                                     DANIEL
                         There was a Stargate aboard the ship 
                         we were on. So once I realised we were 
                         close enough to use Earth as a point 
                         of origin, I dialled P3X 984.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         The Alpha site?

               
                                     DANIEL
                         Yeah, well they called it the Beta site 
                         in the alternate reality.
 
               
                                     HAMMOND
                         Where's the rest of SG-1?

               
               
               
               SG1 are waxing lyrical

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         It's gonna be a beautiful sunset, sir.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         You know, Captain, this wasn't such 
                         a bad day after all.
 
               
                                     SAM
                         Not bad at all.

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         We die well, Teal'c.

               
                                     TEAL'C
                         More than that, old friend. We die free.
 
                         
               
                                     JACK
                         Or not.

               
               
               
               THE END
               
               
               
               " Houston, this is Endeavor. We have them in sight. I repeat, 
               we have them in sight."
 
               
               
               
               The team and Bra'tac enter the gateroom to lot's of cheers and 
               applause

                         Master Bra'tac. Words cannot express 
                         our gratitude.
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         You are Hammond, of Texas?

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I am.

               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         Your warriors serve you well.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         I know they will be sorry to see you 
                         return home so soon.
 
               
                                     BRA'TAC
                         I must return, before word of our rebellion 
                         reaches Chulak. My place is there.
 
                         
               
                                     SOLDIER
                         This way, sir, we want to ask you some 
                         questions before you leave.
 
               
               
               
               Bra'tac leaves the room

               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Not bad at all.

               
                                     HAMMOND
                         SG1, there's someone who'd like to see 
                         you.
 
               
               
               
               Daniel walks out from the crowd

               
               
               
                                     SAM
                         Daniel.

               
               
               
               Jack is beaming and walks up to him. He gives him a big hug
 
               
               
               
               
                                     JACK
                         Space monkey. Yeah!

               
               
               
               THE END
