A man is standing talking to a large crowd of what looks like
My name is Kytano. The once First Prime
of Imhotep. A false God. A false God
who has died by my own hand. Now I am
free. I am a free Jaffa. If you have
come to this place, then you wish to
know freedom as I do. If you have come
to hear me, then you know in your heart
and your mind that the Goa'uld are not
Still, I am but one warrior. Only together,
we are an army of warriors
An army has weapons. An army has food.
(This sounds suspiciously like Peter
In time we shall have weapons and enough
food and drink to sustain us for as
long as it takes to achieve victory.
Until then, we have our freedom. We
have our brother and sisters. I do not
say that this will be easy. There will
be sacrifice. But for each of you who
dies in the name of freedom, your souls
will be sent to Kheb. The place of freedom
everlasting. Until then, if you seek
freedom, if you seek sanctuary, know
that this place is sanctuary. This is
I declare this world a free world for
all jaffa. Let no Goa'uld challenge
us. The time has come for jaffa to claim
their rightful place among the stars.
As warriors who live and as warriors
who die free!
We then see Teal'c and Bra'tac in the crowd in ceremonial robes.
What say you Teal'c? Is he not the means
of our deliverance?
Teal'c and Bra'tac are in ceremonial robes. The rest of SG1 and
Hammond are sat around the table.
Deliverance? Do you have any idea what
happened to the guys in that movie?
I do not.
Master Bra'tac, that's a very strong
Yet the rewards of such an alliance
would be great.
Many of our allies have fallen General
Hammond. The Tollan may be gone forever.
The Tok'ra are severely weakened. Kytano
offers an army.
An army that needs our help.
Major Carter, have the jaffa not helped
Teal'c, please don't misunderstand me.
You and Bra'tac have done more for us
than anyone could have asked. I owe
you both my life at least a dozen times
over, that's not what I'm saying.
O'NEILL What she's saying is, if this guys coming to us, he's
gotta be pretty desperate.
Wait a minute. I don't think we should
underestimate this opportunity. An army
of jaffa actually challenging the power
structure of the Goa'uld. It could be
an inspiration to every jaffa out there.
Word of it's very existence is a threat
to the Goa'uld.
You don't think the Goa'uld are just
going to sit around and let it happen?
We do not. Which makes Kytano's need
His army has grown from many different
System Lords. And more flock to him
with each raid he makes. But an army
cannot live on courage alone.
Dr Jackson, what can you tell us about
this Imhotep? This is the first I've
heard of him.
Well, during the third dynasty of ancient
Egypt, Imhotep was credited as being
the first pyramid builder. He was later
deified amongst the ancient Egyptians
but amongst the Goa'uld as least as
far as I know he never achieved power
of any kind.
He was never a System Lord?
In fact I think Imhotep was probably
an insignificant Goa'uld from a backwater
Which explains how Kytano's managed
He took out a nobody.
Which probably only buys us some time.
If we don't help, the Goa'uld will eventually
see this as the threat it really is.
Imhotep may have been a minor Goa'uld
but Kytano is a great leader of men.
I believe him bold enough to lead his
rebel army to victory over those who
would deny us freedom.
I've already ordered food and medical
supplies prepared for transport. What
we need to discuss in more detail is
what kind of weapons and how many.
Your projectile weapons have proven
to be effective in battle.
P90's, MP5's, Spaz 12's.
For several hundred warriors.
That may take some doing.
General Hammond. If we may send a smaller
number of weapons, as a gesture of good
I think we owe these folks. To a point.
Very well. You have a go.
The Gate is dialling.
O'Neill. Before we leave. You should
know that some of the jaffa you are
about to meet, you may have met before.
Yeah. I thought about that.
Jaffa have long memories.
Well that's all right, because I don't.
That's a joke.
The FRED moves up the ramp.
Master Bra'tac. Lets hope your faith
in this man is well deserved.
I would stake my life on it.
Teal'c and Bra'tac walk up the ramp.
Ours too, apparently.
SG1 come through the Gate to be met by jaffa.
I am Master BRA'TAC of Chulak. I have
come with warriors of the Tau'ri.
Jack drops his backpack. Everyone looks at him.
Tek ma tek.
(To Jack) It means friends well meant.
He's saying we come in peace.
A jaffa walks forward. He was last seen in The Serpent's Venom
Teal'c. Tek ma tek. It was Teal'c who
gave me my first taste of freedom. It
is because of you I am here. Tek ma
Tek ma tay is a greeting of respect.
I'm just saying.
I don't care.
These are among the great warriors of
the Tau'ri. Daniel Jackson, Major Carter
and their leader Colonel O'Neill. Tek
Back atcha. You have come to speak to
He is on a mission and will return very
soon. What is this?
The first shipment of many.
We brought food, supplies and last,
Sam opens the trunk to show P90's.
The crowd murmurs.
Your gesture is appreciated but they
had hoped you would bring staff weapons,
zat'nik'tels, true weapons.
It does not matter friend. Come; see
how our numbers are growing
SG1 walk in past jaffa.
You see, O'Neill. These jaffa were once
sworn, mortal enemies. Each serving
different false gods. Now they work
Our numbers grow with each successful
And you just trust every new arrival
to your cause? I'm just saying, isn't
it possible that some of these jaffa
are still loyal to their gods and are
acting as spies within your ranks?
A warrior of Kytano's experience can
see within the very soul of another
jaffa and know his allegiance.
Kind of a leap of faith isn't it?
No more than when we trusted Bra'tac
when Teal'c went through the Rite of
I saw into his heart and knew he no
longer worshipped Apophis.
That's not quite the same, is it?
Our ways are different to you, O'Neill.
BRA'TAC, TEAL'C AND RAKNOR WALK ALONG TO SEE JAFFA TRAINING.
SAM, JACK AND DANIEL FOLLOW.
The discipline is called mustaba. All
of Imhotep's jaffa were required to
master it. And now we require it of
We then see two jaffa training with wooden staff weapons. Two
of them finish and two more take their place.
Mashak. Training staffs.
Out of necessity Teal'c. There are not
enough staff weapons for all.
You overcommit. (To one of the jaffa)
This young warriors name is Tara'c.
Bra'tac hands his staff to Raknor.
Tek ma tay, master.
If you would allow me? Your weapon is
balanced but the warrior is not. When
one overcommits, one becomes vulnerable
to counterattack. When one achieves
balance in combat, one will survive
to achieve balance in life.
Forgive me master, but Kytano teaches
that one must strike with single-minded
purpose towards victory without regard
for one's survival.
Hey, easy, easy, easy.
Leave them O`Neill.
Tara'c knocks the other jaffa down and prepares to hit him while
he is on the floor.
What the hell are you doing?
We are training.
Where I come from, it's called beating
the crap out of each other.
The boy's symbiote will heal his injuries,
Kytano teaches that we must be willing
to die, as he is if we are to be free.
Well if you all die, you won't have
an army. That's kind of stupid.
Tek ma tay key!
Tara'c moves towards Jack.
Whoa! Hey, what!
You insulted our ways O'Neill. He is
Tek ma te.
Yeah, easy stick boy. All right I'm
just here to help.
Where you going?
Jack checks his breath and follows.
A man walks through cheering jaffa.
You know, we never get this when we
get home. (To Sam)
Kytano stands on a box.
Jaffa. This day, three of our warriors
have fallen in the name of freedom.
They fought fiercely against Zipacna's
forces. And they died bravely. And have
secured a place for themselves in Kheb.
So too have they strengthened our ability
to fight back at the enemy.
A jaffa opens the box they brought back and pulls out zats.
Tek mal te'uc.
He shakes Bra'tac's hand.
Tek ma tay.
You flatter me Master Bra'tac. Ya re
a roo kek a nak. (To Teal'c) I honour
he who would kill his God. And to his
brethren of the Tau'ri. Slayers of Ra,
Hathor, Setesh, Heru'ur, Sokar, Cronos
Well, somebody's been keeping score.
Colonel Jack O'Neill.
A familiar name. Cursed by every Goa'uld.
Imhotep himself declared your days were
Well that's fine. As long as it's a
very big number.
Because of you the armies of these fallen
System Lords now swell the ranks of
Tak ma tak Kytano. (Jack looks pleased
with himself for getting the right greeting)
We also offer an alliance.
Then you are most welcome.
DANIEL We also offer food and supplies for your people.
And of course, weapons.
The cheering stops.
Earth weapons? Take no offence, my friend,
but your weapons are primitive by comparison.
Carter, I think a little demonstration
is in order, don't you?
There is a area with three logs hanging as targets.
This weapon is called a P90. It carries
a 50 round, top loading magazine of
teflon coated ordinance with a cyclical
rate of fire of 900 rounds per minute.
O'NEILL Who here can handle a staff weapon?
Raknor is among our best marksmen.
Carter, that target, what, sixty, seventy
Give or take, Sir.
Fire away, son.
Raknor goes to fire. He fires three times and hits the hanging
log on the first and third go.
Well done. Tai, kree.
Two out of three, that's not bad. Carter?
Major Carter is a formidable warrior.
Yes, of course.
Actually, hold up a second. Hey, you.
In the skirt. Get that target swinging
a little. Little more. All right, step
away. When ready, Major.
Sam takes aim. Jack puts his fingers in his ears. Sam fires and
the bottom half of the log falls off.
Ah, Major, demonstrate the weapon on
Sam fires and the whole log drops as she has shot the rope holding
Jack picks up a staff weapon.
This is a weapon of terror. It's made
to intimidate the enemy. This is a weapon
of war; it's made to kill your enemy.
(Referring to the P90)
And it's capable of doing so at five
times the range I just demonstrated.
We've used it to win about every skirmish
we've had with the Goa'uld and with
the jaffa who served them. Those of
you who have gone up against us and
survived, and you know who you are;
you know what I'm talking about.
We accept your gifts with gratitude
and humility. Now let us celebrate this
The people cheer.
(To Carter) They really like doing that,
Your weapons are formidable, yes but
they lack the endurance of a staff.
That's what these are for.
She holds up ammunition.
And you will provide them freely?
That's the purpose of an alliance, isn't
It places you in a position of power
If Kytano does not do exactly as agreed,
you may withhold ammunition.
Okay, first of all, Teal'c, as long
as you're a member of SG1, you should
use the pronoun we not you. Secondly,
we're not holding back, we're offering
the best we've got. Now you can either
take it or leave it.
Of course, it is only concern for my
people that I raise these questions.
There is no warrior among us who cannot
say my people.
As I also have done.
Colonel O'Neill fears I will seek power
Well you are gathering an army.
And I lead. But there is no warrior
among us who cannot claim jor may sayku.
Challenge of leadership.
To determine the worthiness of the victor
and his right to lead.
To the death, I suppose?
Of course. Yeah, well where I come from,
we do things a little differently.
And you would have us change our ways
to suit yours?
I didn't say that. But if it's not too
Kytano. Colonel O'Neill. It is my hope
that we can learn from our differences.
That they bond us together, make us
Your words are wise Master Bra'tac.
Yes, wise indeed.
Tomorrow, we will bond. In battle. You
are familiar with the System Lord, Nirrti?
Tomorrow we are going to raid a supply
shipment intended for a battalion of
Nirrti's jaffa. Join us.
If we do, what's in it for us?
I see you are one who speaks his mind,
Yes, which is why I don't say much.
A share of the spoils.
Spoils are good. We like spoils.
Teal'c has informed me that you require
several hours of sleep. There is no
shame in doing so.
Teal'c is drinking with Raknor.
Shal met. Have you chosen to join us,
Kytano has yet to ask.
He will. You will take your place as
a leader in the jaffa nation.
I have long dreamed that jaffa would
one day be free. But I free that day
is farther off than Kytano believes.
We have come so far because of you Teal'c.
Kytano could not have hoped to raise
such an army had you not led the way.
And we will grow even stronger now that
the tau'ri have become our allies.
Of that I am not so sure. Kytano's ways
are difficult for the people of the
Tau'ri to understand.
Kytano walks in.
We shall gain our freedom with or without
Teal'c gets up.
Kytano. Forgive me.
There is nothing to forgive.
I do not speak for O'Neill.
What you say is true, they are different.
Cynical of our ways. O'Neill most of
Yet they are my friends.
And we are your brothers. I am not a
fool Teal'c, I know the Tau'ri are strong.
An alliance can make us stronger. But
I abandon nothing of who and what we
are for neither human nor Goa'uld.
Sam walks in, Daniel is writing and Jack is sitting.
I guess Teal'c's staying out all night
with his new buddies?
Well he did get in all that quality
What do you think?
Of Kytano? Well you've got to admit
he's got presence. His followers are
Well it does make him formidable. Ancient
Japanese feudal Lords recognised the
discipline that incorporated indifference
to death as a very effective tool in
What's with this jomo sicko thing anyway?
Jor may seyku.
Like anybody in that crowd's gonna challenge
Kytano's managed to collect jaffa from
at least six different System Lords.
He must be doing something right.
Well, they have no problem with dying.
I have a problem with that.
You have a problem with them dying or
you got a problem with the fact that
they don't have a problem with it.
Both. I think.
He lies down, so does Sam.
Get some sleep. We have to bond in the
There is a pyramid and cargo ship there. SG1, Bra'tac, Kytano
and rebel jaffa watch from a hill as the jaffa move towards the
Kree! You are surrounded! Relinquish
Kytano nods to a jaffa who fires into the air. The jaffa fire
back and Jack starts to fire.
Kytano then gets up.
He does not know fear.
Well he knows stupid.
Kytano walks directly into the line of fire.
Kel mak. Hold your fire. I am Kytano.
If you have heard that name, then you
know that there are other jaffa who
believe that the Goa'uld are false gods.
Join us in the struggle against our
oppressors and live to see freedom.
A jaffa gets up and points his staff right at Kytano.
If you do not believe in freedom for
our people brother, then shoot me now.
The jaffa drops his weapon. The rebel jaffa start to cheer.
Do you believe in him now, O'Neill?
JAFFA REBEL PLANET.
The rebels and SG1 walk back into the village with Nirrti's shipment.
Jack hangs back with Teal'c.
Teal'c. You see, I'm a little concerned
Well you know, that stunt he just pulled.
Kytano is driven by the power of his
His beliefs are very impressive but
his tactics could have gotten us all
Kytano was successful.
I say he got lucky.
Then it appears we disagree.
A horn is blown.
Kytano summons us.
Teal'c walks off.
We've got a problem with Teal'c. He's
buying into Kytano's act.
You don't really think it's an act,
do you? Kytano certainly believes in
I think Kytano believes he could walk
Kytano opens up the trunk they stole from Nirrti.
The fruits of our new born alliance.
The cutting edge that is the sword of
Weapons grade naqahdah, sir. A lot of
It's quite a haul.
What are you gonna do with it?
I will give you as much is as fair.
I have plans for the rest. As for the
zat'nik'tels, we require them all. I
will be able to offer you many times
as much once the ha'tak arrives.
You're expecting a mothership?
You chose your allies well. I have just
received news that jaffa, loyal to me
are staging a mutiny as we speak aboard
a powerful mothership. Soon they will
be on their way and unite with us in
A mutiny? That's a little risky. Isn't
There are always risks in war.
But if they fail....
They will succeed because their cause
I wish it worked that way.
Then they will succeed with the strength
of their resolve. Come with me to the
Chaapa'ai. See for yourself. Come.
Kytano dials an address.
Nirrti must not learn of our raid. She
would surely hunt us down. We must cover
He goes over to some jaffa.
Tara'c. I chose you to lead this squad
of brave warriors because I know you
will not fail me. Know that if you are
struck down in battle, you will live
forever in Kheb. Free from Goa'uld oppression
for all time.
The other jaffa line up on either side of the Gate.
Kytano is handed something.
Fight your way as deeply as you can
into Nirrti's force. Show the your resolve.
Kal lak shal ta.
Kal lak shal ta.
Victory or death.
Kytano puts something into a pouch on Tara'c's chest.
Sir, that's a naqahdah enhanced bomb.
He's sending them on a suicide mission.
Hey, wait a minute!
The small squad of jaffa run in between the other jaffa through
the gate as Raknor stops Jack.
The Gate disengages.
What the hell are you doing?
Do you now see the strength of our resolve?
I see the strength of your arrogance.
Do not interfere with things you know
Oh I know exactly what you're about.
We are at war. It is our way.
And I suppose it makes you feel all
powerful to know how eager those boys
are to die for you?
Their souls are on the way to a far
You know, I've heard that before.
You would deny the existence of Kheb?
You would deny that their souls would
I think what Colonel O'Neill is trying
to say is, we do things a little differently.
Yet again you remind me that your ways
are different. We should abandon centuries
of jaffa tradition and follow the ways
of the Tau'ri. Which of us is arrogant?
Look if we're gonna have an alliance
here, we're have to find common ground.
Soon the ha'tak we await will come and
this army will be a true force to be
reckoned with. If you wish to ally yourselves
with that force then accept us for who
and what we are. If not then leave us
Bra'tac, Raknor then Teal'c follow Kytano.
Kytano, Teal'c and Bra'tac are looking at a map.
Expect resistance here and here.
Daniel Jackson witnessed the System
Lord Yu being stabbed by Osiris.
With his sarcophagus, he survived. Still
he was severely weakened by the attack.
His homeworld is ripe for the taking
if his personal guard can be eliminated.
Now is the time when Lord Yu will be
Then now is time to strike.
I have several loyal jaffa among his
court. Many of his jaffa will join us
if he were to be struck down.
WE would be able to commandeer his fleet.
Ships filled with jaffa ready to flock
to our cause. I have dreamed of it but
I never thought it possible.
Jack walks in.
Teal'c? We're packing up. I'd like you
to come with us.
His place is here.
Kytano has entrusted me with a mission
of great importance.
I bet he has.
I have accepted this mission freely.
Don't do it.
Lord Yu's stargate will be unguarded.
The plan is bold enough to succeed,
O'Neill. More so if you join us.
Can't do it.
Teal'c's participation will guarantee
the success of this mission.
On the other hand, Teal'c is a leader
in his own right. You might not want
Teal'c will become one of our greatest
If he lives.
He will succeed.
Because you say so?
Because he is Teal'c.
All right, let me see if I can get this
straight. You assassinate one System
Lord after another, you take all their
ships and warriors, all of whom are
willing to die for you. And this is
different from the way things are now....
The jaffa will be free.
To follow you?
I grow tired of this. It is time.
Teal'c walks along saluting the other jaffa.
Teal'c? I'm not going to recommend an
alliance. Not as long as he's in charge.
We will speak of this when I return
I don't think so. Because if you do
this, I don't think you're coming back.
When I return victorious, will you reconsider.
Trust in me O'Neill.
The gate engages.
All of you.
Teal'c. You are strong and you are wise.
Upon your return you shall be my second
The jaffa and Teal'c go through the Gate.
Teal'c is dragged in by jaffa.
Teal'c. Perhaps I am not as weak as
you were led to believe. My jaffa has
brought you before me because I wanted
it so. Kytano has sent you to kill me.
Your faith is not blind. I know this
of you. I am going to offer you your
life. I will even allow you to return
to your rebel army. But first, there
is something you must know.
Bra'tac and SG1 are walking to the gate.
O'Neill. You will not reconsider?
As Bra'tac said, we are stronger together.
Can we put aside our petty differences?
I'm holding you personally responsible
for whatever happens to Teal'c. Carter,
dial us out of here.
They go to the Gate.
Sam starts dialling but there is an incoming wormhole.
Teal'c comes through the Gate and runs straight to the village.
They chase after him.
Thanks for the update.
Teal'c runs in.
Deceiver! We have been deceived. Deceiver!
Two jaffa grab Teal'c.
I have deceived no one. The ha'tak I
spoke of is just now entering the system.
When it arrives all will become clear.
Lord Yu knows Kelmar is the location
of this rebel army. He knows our numbers.
He knows you have betrayed him. The
mutiny on board Lord Yu's ship has failed.
The ha'tak you await brings doom. Not
salvation. The System Lords merely bided
their time to root out all rebel jaffa
so they may be crushed in one all out
attack. The betrayer has been betrayed.
Jor may seyku.
You challenge me?
Jor may seyku!
He throws him a wooden staff.
They trade blows. Jack looks on and winces.
If you intervene, the challenge will
They continue to fight with some cool Matrix inspired camera
Perhaps you think I will spare you?
This is a fight to the death. Your death.
More cool fighting moves from Kytano and Teal'c is left bending
down on the floor.
Is that the best you can do?
Kytano somersaults and breaks Teal'c's wooden staff in half.
He hits him again.
Beg for mercy.
I die free.
Kytano goes towards him and leans into him.
You die at the hand of your god. (Switches
to Goa'uld voice) Imhotep.
Kytano does some more fancy moves and leaves himself open for
Teal'c to stab him with the broken end of his staff weapon.
Arrggghhh. (Goa'uld voice)
His eyes glow then fade. He hits the floor.
Raknor goes to Kytano and pulls up his tunic.
He is not jaffa. Kytano is not jaffa!
He was a goa'uld. The goa'uld Imhotep.
He used the jaffa's desire for freedom
against them. Probably the only way
he could gain any real power.
Bra'tac picks up Teal'c.
Kytano was a lie. What brought us to
Kelmar is not. Lord Yu's ship will attack
at any moment. Follow us. Leave with
us if you wish to live.
Follow Teal'c. He speaks the truth.
And he has won the right. You all witnessed.
Kytano has been beaten in the rite of
jor may seyku. Teal'c is our rightful
A building behind suddenly explodes.
Way ahead of you Sir.
They run towards the Gate.
Leave with us. Leave with us if you
wish to live.
The Goa'uld continue to bombard the planet.
The Gate engages. Daniel runs through and Sam waits to help people
through. Bra'tac helps Teal'c through and Jack goes through.
Bra'tac and Teal'c pause.
Our time will come old friend. But not
Teal'c and Bra'tac go through the Gate as the Goa'uld continue
to bombard the planet.
