Opens on a sand planet. Stargate is active with a Prior standing
before it. some Jaffa head towards him with there Staff weapons.
You show no fear Latal
He is one man what is there to fear?
He promised retribution if we did not
bow to their Gods upon his return.
The Jaffa have shed too much blood to
replace one false God with another.
we have made our decision and we will
Sanctus of all Ori. sanctumus Ori. (chanting)
*stops, as Jaffa open up staff weapons.*
Have you come alone?
The Ori are with me always. you have
read from the book of origin?
What say you to the promise of the Ori.
*glances at the other Jaffa* we will
hear no more of false Gods. Go now and
we will spare your life.
You speak for all?
one way or another. this world will
serve their purpose.
His Stick glows bright blue
They open fire on him but shots are blocked by a personal force
shield, he smacks his stick on the ground and the light gets
even brighter as he shifts it forward, the Jaffa are thrown back
and a blue shield starts to form around the area. The Prior begins
Stargate Command. Control room. The Gate activates.
unscheduled offworld activation.
what have we got chief?
receiving a message sir. its text only
*Text whizzes down screen. Gate shuts
down, Harriman frowns* Itís in Goaíuld.
*looks up at Landry*
None of you folks read Goaíuld do you?
On Base. Jackson, Mitchell, Tealíc and Vala playing basketball.
Aliens verses the Humans. Jackson passes to Mitchell it rebounds
Vala grabbing it as Tealíc lifts her into the air and she drop
the ball through the hoop.
Yeah! Woo!! *Tealíc drops her and they
bop hips, Jackson and Mitchell laughing*
You boys arenít going to let people
from two different planets beat you
at your own silly game are you?
Silly game isnít over yet.
Thatís my wing man *throws him the ball*
You need a new wing man *turns to Jackson*
Iím gonna kick your ass
*shaking hips* promises. Promises.
Vala tries to make a jump for the ball as Jackson throws it to
Mitchell, Mitchell goes for the net but a slight push from Tealíc
throws him off balance. The ball heads into Hallway where Landry
grabs it and heads in. Mitchell jumping to attention.
As you were colonel. Actually I was
looking for Tealíc. we received a communicate
from a Goaíuld named Nerous ring any
I am aware of his identity. *glances
at Vala* He was a minor Goaíuld who
served Baíal for many centuries.
What can you tell me about him?
*Tealíc about to answer but she cuts
him off* Honestly you donít want to
Honestly I do.
What do you say we go with the idea
that Iím in charge and Iíve asked a
hmm. *looks at Tealíc* Nerous defines
avarice and gluttony, a simple answer?
mmmm *nods* He is a Goaíuld known for
his many...*thinks* appetites.
Heís also known as an inventor responsible
for a host of Goaíuld technologies.
Thatís when I started paying attention
to him too...weird as it sounds heís
offering to work for us.
Nerous is not to be trusted.
Funny...he had nice things to say about
you. *throws the ball getting it straight
through the hoop with a swish, he leaves*
Briefing room. Tealíc and Mitchell sit on one side Vala behind
them. Jackson on other side reading the text.
...No, he really did. He said some very
nice things. ďI would consider it a
great honor to meet the heroes of the
Tau'ri, who brought the Goa'uld to their
Yeah... that is nice.
*walks round table to Danielís side*
No, he's disgusting. You can't honestly
open the doors to a pathetic, minor
Goa'uld, posing as one of the big boy's.
*sighs* Well at least promise me you're
intending on torturing him. *Daniel
gives her a look*
We're setting him up in the VIP suite.
Sir, if you don't mind my asking...
Well, according to his communicate,
he's in possession of military intelligence
*reads* of the utmost urgency.
Sounded like it was worth a listen.
Still... Why throw in with us? Why not
stay with Baíal or work for some other
Well...look at it in terms of optics.
We must look like major players now.
By defeating Anubis.
and... Most of the System Lords were
killed by the Replicators, then we defeated
the Replicators... *waveís hand*
*hint of sarcasm* Wow... we look cool.
Don't let it go to your head *looks
at Vala as she laughs*
*reading file she swiped from Jackson*
Have you seen his list of dietary requirements?
*looks up, Jackson tearing the file
from her hands, taking a better hold
Already taken care of.
Ripened Traqeel eggs?
Weíve got eggs. I don't know if they're
ripe or not... SG-3 is with him on a
neutral planet, doing a security check
as we speak. As soon as they give the
green light, I want you to.... *gates
Speak of the devil *heads off*
Jackson looks at Vala whose shaking head in disbelief.
Nerous comes through with SG-3 flanking his sides. SG-1 are lined
with Landry at the base of the ramp. Landry walks up ramp.
Heís clean sir.
Thank you Sergeant weíll take it from
I am Nerous.
*bowing slightly* Major General Hank
Landry. I'm in command of Stargate C--....
NEROUS: *in Goaíuld voice thing* yyyeess.
*waves him off walking past him* Yes,
I'm sure you're a very important person
and you had very important reasons to
subject me to your security precautions.
But to meet you. *walks up to Tealíc*
To look upon the face of the one.
*looks at Tealíc* The one what?
The one who inspired the great uprising,
of course. oh The time of false Gods
is at an end and no small part because
of this man! *points at Tealíc, turns
to Jackson* Nerous: Dr Daniel Jackson!
It is rumored among the Goa'uld, that
you alone defeated Anubis. Is that true?
*dumbfounded, Vala smirks at him* Where'd
you hear that?
Oh, I hear everything. *laughs, heads
over to Mitchell*
Ltd Colonel Cameron Mitchell. leader
Will he be here?
*looks disappointer, looks at Mitchell
again, walks over to Vala* And....and...You...
you're not even Colonel Carter, are
you??! This isn't at all the way I imagined
it would be.
Nerous, if you'd follow me to our Briefing
Room. We have much to discuss.
Yes, yes. But first I must have sustenance.
Have you met all my dietary requirements?
As much as humanly possible. *heads
*follows* oh Good, good, because I'm
SG-3 carrying some of Nerous stuff, Sg-1 look between themselves,
Back on the Sand planet, a large number of Jaffa are firing on
the large force shied around the prior and the Gate. Using both
staff weapons and P-90s having no effect.
Neruousí Quarters. A lot of fine food is laid on the table, Nerous
takes some grapes eating them
Mmmmm... No shades!! *turns to them*
How is that possible?
It's a state secret, but we're willing
Itís impossible, but delicious. Mmmm.
hhhmmmm. *clears throat, holds up hand*
Still, *clears throat again, his voice
goes to normal* still we have important
matters to discuss. Donít we?
Vala sits on the table and starts helping herself to some of
Your voice....just changed.
Oh, we don't have to talk that way.
*Chuckles* This *Goes to his case, pulling
something out* is a device that I invented.
What you're about to see *places the
object on the table, turning it on,
a hologram appears above it, of a Planet*
occurred nearly two day's ago. Now the
free Yaffa who claim this planet called
Kalana... *a bright blue shape appears
on a small area of the planet*
*eating* What was that?
The formation of an extremely large
force field around the planet's Stargate.
And you're sharing this information
with us, because?
Why are you so surprised? We joined
forces to destroy the Replicators.
I have no recollection of your participation.
*Vala grins goes for more food*
Teal'c...You wound me. I was the one
who figured out how to activate all
the Stargate's in the galaxy at once!
*silence* Didn't Baal mention that....
That is so like him. *eats, Tealíc giving
her...a look, she motioned the food
Isn't it though? It's alright. Your
adversaries call themselves...the Ori.
We know all about the Ori.
Yes... well thus far I detect only a
single individual, no doubt a Prior,
inside the force field, but *turns off
machine* it is expanding.
Then it will soon be able to accommodate
*sits* Yes... and further more, the
Stargate itself has not shut down since
Wait a minute. You say this happened
two day's ago?
38 minutes is the maximum time a Stargate
can stay open. That's a law of wormhole
Not according to the Ori. *eats, Landry
shooting her a look*
Which means that they have a power source
which can indefinitely maintain a wormhole
from another galaxy, plus this force
field. A...a...a ZPM can't even do that.
How are we to do battle with an enemy
*silence* With my help? Every force
field has a weakness and I'm confident
that I shall find it.
Vala looks at Daniel shaking her head
Sir, if this Intel is correct, it represents
a complete change of tactics. We'll
have to respond.
I agree, Colonel. But if this... Kalana
is a Jaffa world, I'm not sure how this
is our fight.
Not your fight? *stands* You engineered
the downfall of the Goa'uld. This is
very much a galaxy of your own making....General.
And you must take responsibility.
What would you have us do?
Attack them as quickly as possible with
as much force as you can bring to bear.
*Landry turns, Looking at Mitchell before
returning his attention to Nerous* This
is nothing short of an invasion, General.
Like it or not, Youíre in a state of
Landryís office. Landry on the phone to OíNeill
Jack...Jack...Jack! She practically
invented the Mark 9 and youíre the one
who thinks we should use the damn thing!
Why are you wasting valuable time saying
no? *pauses for OíNeill to talk.* Iíve
read enough of your SG-1 mission reports
to know that there were times when no
one else but Samantha carter could have
pulled your ass out of the fire. Well
this is *in the background at the down
we can see the outline of someone in
dress blues* one of those times. *Landry
turns to door, revealing Carter*
Reporting as ordered sir.
......Yeah...sheís standing right here.
Youíre a funny man Jack. *Carter Grins*
very funny. *hangs up turning to carter*
Control room, Tealíc, Jackson, Mitchell and Vala dressed up for
a mission, Vala with a shawl round her neck, playing with the
Chevron four encoded.
I promise you heís lying
about which part?
All of it.
Chevron 5 encoded.
Yet we have been unable to dial the
co-ordinates to Kalana despite several
*Grabs Tealícs arm* Goa'uld don't do
anything for anyone, other than themselves.
Chevron 6 encoded.
Maybe it's in his own interests to stop
Chevron 7 still will not lock.
Alright, we've tried that long enough.
Jackson, Vala, Tealíc, Mitchell and Harriman walk over to Carter
We've revised the original plans slightly
to expedite matters. The Prometheus
is enroute and will rendezvous with
us at P4C-452. Weíll proceed to kalana
from there. Now considering their unique
ability to maintain an active Stargate
indefinitely and their force field capabilities...
the President has authorized any and
all means to complete the mission.
Oh boy. *Mutters to Tealíc* And here
I was trying to have a nuke free career.
We've been developing something at Area
51, that General O'Neill believes will
be our best chance to stop them. right
here. right now.
But you don't agree?
*licks lips, thinking of the best way
to say it* I agree we have to try. I
just don't think it'll be enough.
It's what we've got. Questions?
Vala quickly raises her hand, only for Jackson to grab it pulling
*looks* No sir. *Vala pulls her hand
Still no response from the Jaffa council?
None as of yet.
Well, we can't wait for Gerak. We...
proceed as planned. Chief. dial the
gate! HARRIMAN: Yes sir!
They all head to the Gateroom, Landry taking his place behind
Harriman as the gate is dialed.
Gateroom, Gate opens.
Well, temporary or not, it's good to
have you back. *Carter and Jackson smile
at each other, Vala goes to lean against
the back wall*
How good is this? *Looks at Tealíc*
got the band back together.
*looks back at Vala, quietly* Uh so
what's with the extra backup singer?
Ah, she's good fun. Plus, we figured
if Jackson were to....
Yeah that's the word. It would jeopardize
when we spoke a couple of weeks ago,
you said you thought the effects of
the bracelets was wearing off.
well It was. I just didn't want to put
it to a test from the other side of
the galaxy, so....
*coughs, obviously been listens* Wow...
Just dying to get rid of me now, aren't
No... not dying to...
Oh no...*straightens moving ahead of
them* I know I'm not welcome here. Despite
all my efforts to try and fit into your
little stargating club, you can all
rest assured, that as soon as I can
safely part Daniel's company without
killing the both of us, I will. *winks,
She starts up the ramp then stops, turns
back* Oh... and you! *points at Landry
in the control room* You will wish youíd
listened to me when I said, letting
the Goa'uld come here was a mistake!
*takes end of shawl flinging it over
her shoulder, heads up ramp through
Get to it and good luck!
right, let's do this. *SG-1 head through
Colonel Pendergast meets SG-1. Carter and Mitchell saluting
Request permission to come aboard!
Shaft...Welcome back to the Prometheus.
Thank you Colonel
My call sign. Cam. Shaft.
*stops thinking* Oh.
Yeah. Disappointing, isn't it?
*on phone* Flight Deck, this is Pendergast.
SG-1 is aboard. Engage hyper drive and
proceed to kalana at best possible speed.
*puts down phone*
Is the mark nine ready to go?
Standing by for your systems check.
I hear you're in a hurry.
You heard correctly. *They all head
for the elevators, Jackson and Vala
What is a mark nine, exactly?
It's also known as a gate buster.
mmm. *all stop in front of elevator,
turns to Jackson* Sounds big.
Some might say, too big.
Really? *fiddles with the end of her
Shawl* I've always thought there's no
*clears throat* Vala this is a military
vessel? *pulls shawl off from round
I know darling, I've stolen it before.
well... Just try to be uh.... *elevators
open, the other head in*
My charming self?
yes...just a little less talk a little
more shut the hell up.
Jackson heads to elevator, Vala follows pulling on her pig tails.
Prometheus jumps into Hyper space.
Landry enters Nerousí quarters. Heís sitting eating and drinking.
General!! Join me for a glass of wine!
It's from a place called France.
I'm on duty.
What is this? This is exquisite. *holds
it up* What is it?
It's a rare delicacy among our people.
Mmmm. It's exquisite. I want more chicken!
More chicken! *They both laugh*
I'll try to pull some strings. Nerous...
this arrangement is only going to work
if you actually do something to help
with this problem.
I was working. I...I...-I I was deep
in thought when you walked in.
Ye ha ha, I can see that.
You don't trust me!
Course I don't trust you.
*activates hologram* Now. Here is the
latest transmission from my satellite...
As you can see, the force field continues
to expand in phases and as it does so,
it weakens considerably.
Enough to penetrate with our beaming
Yes, wi-wit-with those nuclear devices
that you were talking about.
Or SG1. They could talk to this Prior.
face to face.
Why? Wh-why would they do that?
We resort to force... only when necessary.
Oh, I assure you it will be. It will
be, General. An-and with the most powerful
weapons in your arsenal.
I'll forward this new information, directly
to Prometheus, and uh... I'll see if
I can arrange for more chicken. *claps
him on the back leaving*
The Prometheus leaves hyperspace and moves into orbit the planet.
On the Bridge.
Sir... we received an encrypted data
burst from Stargate Command the moment
we came out of hyperspace.
Decode it immediately. we picking up
any other weapons in the system?
Can we get a closer look at the surface?
*moving to the vacant seat to PenderGastís
left* You can already see the extent
of the incursion with the naked eye.
*looking at the screen* My God, it's
enormous! *Jackson instantly looks at
her, she eventually glance up at him,
knowing what heís thinking* Not everything
I say is innuendo
We can all see, *grasping her shoulders
and moving her away* thank you.
It's increased by almost 900% since
our original Intel.
What of the Jaffa, Colonel Carter?
*pokes some buttons various beeping
sounds* sorry Teal'c. I'm not detecting
any life signs outside of the force
*Walks over* Inside?
I don't know how he's managing it. According
to these readings, the atmosphere inside
the field has become toxic. Probably
as a result of the Jaffa weapon's fire
on the force field.
Send a subspace message to Stargate
Command. We are over the enemy beachhead.
Shot of the Prior, chanting the ground and air thick with smoke.
In a Cargo hold. Four space suits are lined up waiting for sg-1.
Tealíc checking his. While Vala plays with the hand of her own.
Mitchell reading Manual on Mark 9.
You do realize that no matter how nicely
we ask them, they're not all that likely
Then why are we going down there?
Well you're going cause I'm going.
And we're going because we have orders.
Thanks to Nerous. Doesn't that alarm
Well, our government believes we need
to send the Ori a message.
Indeed. The Ori need to be made aware
that they are not welcome.
*looking a Jackson* Well some of you
are certainly expert in getting that
message across. *looks at her*
(on radio) SG1 this is the Flight Deck.
My people are expecting an expansion
phase to occur anytime in the next few
Shot of flight deck
Jackson heads over to his space suit
If Nerous is correct, we should be able
to punch through with our transport
And if not?
Then we're all dressed up with nowhere
Your return window will be roughly 16
seconds, once on the surface. After
which time, you'll be committed until
the next expansion phase in about half
an hour. I'll be monitoring from the
Thanks. Let's do this. *they both insert
their keys in the Mark 9*
Stand by mode in 3, 2, 1, mark. *they
both turn keys* Good luck.
Carter head back to bridge as the team get into their suits.
SG-1 Beams down to the planet, inside the force shield with Mark

Set. The weapon is now in mode 2. We
are go till the next window.
They all start to make their way to the prior.
How can he breathe?
Perhaps he has a personal shield of
Nice. *prior still chanting* Yo. My
name is Lt Colonel Cameron Mitchell.
I know who you are.
Yeah *points* he just told you his name.
I also know you will do everything in
your power to stop us.
You will fail. The Ori are more powerful
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,
blah... here's the thing... We're not
here to talk to you. We're here to talk
to the guy's you take orders from.
The Ori... are all seeing.
Great! In that case...We have in our
possession a mark nine naquadriah enhanced
nuclear warhead, which was designed
solely for the purpose of vaporizing
Stargate's and anything else in a 100
mile radius... If you attempt to disable
this warhead, physically, electronically
or otherwise, it will result in an immediate
detonation. Now we have a number of
these God awful things at our disposal
and we will not hesitate to use them
if deemed necessary. If you do not disengage
the Stargate within 30 of our *makes
bunny sign with hands, Jackson has to
do a double take* Earth minutes, we
will shut down the gate for you. *look
at Jackson* Go ahead.
... *Unsure, Mitchell waves* Uh... we
know who and what you are and want no
part of what you have to offer. If you
attempt this on any other planet in
this galaxy, we will find you and we
will fight you.
That's it? *Jackson Nods* I just gave
him 30 minutes. *they all stand there
a few close ups on each Vala Grinning,
Mark 9 beeps* 29 minutes. *they all
Yeah, I've always wanted to say that.
Well, now you have.
Sure hope they shut down that gate before
we have to set this thing off.
That would appear to be highly unlikely,
I know. It's naive, even for you.
Detonating the largest warhead ever
built by man is not exactly the historical
footnote that I had in mind.
Not to mention the guilt you're gonna
feel for vaporizing a perfectly good
*points at the prior* And that guy.
oh, he's probably looking forward to
Hey Prior! You understand that you're
within a 100 mile radius and that personal
shield ain't gonna help you.
Death is only the beginning of the real
It should sound familiar, Doctor Jackson.
When I die, I will ascend. It is the
promise of the Ori.
Even if you fail your task?
Suddenly there are great flashes of Light, like lightning.
What the hell is that?
3 Hataks leave hyper drive firing on the force shield. On the
flight deck of Prometheus.
There was no warning sir. They started
firing, the second they came out of
It's damn fortunate they're not firing
at us. Open communications. To Jaffa
vessels, this is the Earth ship Prometheus.
We request that you hold your fire we
have people down there! *no answer hataks
keep firing* I repeat! SG1 is on the
planet attempting to negotiate an Ori
withdrawal. Cease fire now!
Back on the surface
The force field is being fired upon
by Hatak vessels.
Why are they doing that?
Can we get them to stop doing that?
oooooh, this could be bad. The mark
nine's fuse in mode 2 is a wee bit twitchy.
*heads over to Mark 9*
You mean, it could go off?
The Hataks stop firing
They stopped firing.
Sir. The force field is entering an
expansion phase ahead of predicted time.
This is Pendergast. I want SG1 brought
back onboard as soon as we can beam
them through the force field.
(on radio) SG1. Prepare for immediate
Mitchell grabs remote pushing button
The weapon is now in mode 1. Prometheus,
we are ready for beam up. Prior! Last
The Prior turns to face the gate, the team are beams up
Communication between Gerak and the Prometheus
I am Gerak, of the free Jaffa. Why have
you come here?
Carter, hesitates but Pendergast motions for her to go ahead.
It's an honour to speak with you sir.
My name is Lt Colonel Samantha Carter.
By insisting that we cease fire on the
enemy stronghold, you've allowed it
to expand even further and we've lost
the element of surprise.
...And quite possibly saved the lives
I ask you again. Why have you come to
We have reason to believe that the Ori
are attempting to use this planet to
stage a full scale invasion.
And you hope to repel this invasion
with words? *Sg-1 step on to bridge*
There is more to this.
Words are often the most powerful weapon
of all Gerak. The old ways will not
stop an adversary as powerful as the
So you said in your message to the High
To which we received no response.
We had no choice but to act on the information
And how is it that the Tauíri received
this information even before the council?
Uh... how we got this information is
not important. What is important is
that we stand together as allies, in
the face of our common enemy.
On surface, Mark 9 still going. Prior walks over to Gate. He
places his hand on the outer ring.
You said you've come to fight.
I dispatched a scout... in a cloaked
cargo ship. He tell's me you have done
We're sending the Ori a message which
they should receive in about ten seconds.
Shields to maximum! *Alarms start* Gerak,
I suggest you give the same order aboard
your ships. There will be a blast wave.
Jaffa! *screen closes*
The Prior holds his hand on the gate staring into the watery
surface. The Mark 9 detonates.
From space a blast from the centre of the shield is seen but
the shield expands out fast.
Sir, the force field went into another
expansion phase just as the bomb detonated.
*looks at Pendergast* And it's a big
Onboard Gerak's ship
What is happening?
The force field continues to expand.
It isn't supposed to be doing that,
Why is it doing that?
I don't know.
What are you gonna do about it?
*quiet Angry* shut up.
That was a multi gigatonne detonation.
There's just no way.
Maybe the gate was destroyed.
No. If the field is still expanding,
the gate still has to be active.
The environment inside the field has
been turned into super heated plasma.
Makes it impossible to get a reliable
Gerak appears on the screen
And this is your message to the Ori?
Pithy, wasn't it?
We struck the enemy with our most powerful
And yet their force field grows.
That was not our intention.
The beachhead must be destroyed. If
you are truly our ally, you will join
us in this attack. If you do not, your
ship will become our next target.
The Hataks open fire once again.
The detonation did weaken the force
field... Our combined weapons fire might
just finish the job.
If it does not, we will soon be engaged
in battle with Gerak's forces.
We just don't have enough information.
Until I can explain how they're keeping
the gate open or powering a force field
this large. *to Mitchell* It's your
*raises hand* I say we run away and
rethink the whole thing.
*walks round* Open up with everything
Bring the main rail gun online. Commence
firing. Launch missiles
Screens show force shield expanding but weakening.
Is the fire having any effect?
Force field is definitely strength.
But it's still expanding at a faster
rate than it's weakening.
It's almost enveloped the entire planet.
What happens then?
*after a minute* Dammit!
*to Mitchell* Colonel, we need to cease
*to Pendergast* Now!
*to Marks* Do it!
The greater the intensity of our weapons
fire... the greater and more frequent
their expansion phase is... There is
a direct correlation. They're using
the energy of our own weapons to build
You mean they planned this? *looks at
Daniel in an I told you so way*
There's no way to project the necessary
power through a Stargate, across galaxies.
So they designed a force field that
could be powered by our own weapons.
The Ori knew the Jaffa on Kalana would
defend their home world and others would
And Nerous made certain we'd join in.
Which means he's working for the Ori.
The mark nine gave them almost 70% of
the power they needed to envelop the
Oh yeah, we've been set up.
*sarcastic* What a complete shock! *Jackson
looks at her, she nods, making a zipping
motion* won't say another word.
Gerak's forces must also cease fire.
The final area of the Planet is covered with the force field
*beeping sounds* I'm reading activity
on the surface.
A shot of the Stargate on its side. Several objects exit the
gate at High speed.
We've got incoming. Three objects and
counting. Bearing 180. Rising from the
planet's surface from the coordinates
of the Stargate and accelerating.
Shields to maximum
Gerak appears on screen
Why have you ceased fire?
We have reason to believe our weapons
may power the enemy force field.
that's what I thought, but it's the
Gerak, they used both of us!
Multiple contacts on multiple bearings,
What the hell are they?
They are about ten meters long. But

One of them is on a collision course.
I can confirm that. 1000 meters... 500.

Brace for impact!

the closest thing to true God's in the
entire universe, have successfully established
a permanent foothold.
What did you do?
Oh, it's not what I did. General. What
I have done pales in comparison to your
contribution. And by now... the force
field has almost entirely enveloped
the planet. Which makes them unstoppable.
*Goaíuld voice* And we couldnít have
done it without you.
On board Prometheus. Gerak on screen.
Two of my ships have been destroyed
and my own flagship has been damaged.
We must withdraw.
We too have suffered damage, Gerak,
but the battle is not yet over.
Our sensors tell us that the planet
has begun to collapse. I cannot tell
you to what extent. If you choose to
remain to find out, know... that your
actions... will be watched.
Hey! We're on the same side here!
We... shall... see.
He takes off
What is he talking about?
We've got the sensors back up, but we're
gonna have to get closer to the planet
to find out.
Right, bring us about. Take us back
into the system.
Ok, I've got a fix on the planet. Looks
like Gerak was right. According to the
sensors, it's diameter has decreased
Planet's don't shrink, in my experience.
On screen, next to planet, some debris Sam does a close up.
Ah, there's something else. *Jackson
and Mitchell flank her sides*
What is that?
It's hard to say. Whatever it is, I
think it's composed of the objects that
came through the Stargate.
A shot of the Prometheus moving up towards the objects that are
beginning to form a large ring, with a few pieces still needing
to be placed.
Doesn't that look an awful lot like
Yeah, it does.
In fact, I think that's just what it
No, it can't be, cause I was gonna say,
Try supergate. I estimate it's about
3 to 400 meters across.
Large enough a passage of their entire
*walks over to Marks side* It's incomplete.
There's still time.
Time? Time to do what? everything we've
done has just made things worse.
The planet's diameter has now decreased
by up to 50% and it's accelerating rapidly.
I think I know why. Only one thing in
the universe could power a gate that
size. It's also the only thing that
could allow them to keep the gate open
this long. And there's one on the other
A black hole.
That's what the force field was for.
It wasn't meant to keep us out, it was
designed to collapse the planet into
one micro singularity.
Well, this is how they can create a
wormhole that can span such a vast distance.
With a black hole at either end they
can maintain an open wormhole indefinitely.
uh... Fine, fine. How do we stop it?
I have an idea. If we could *points*
The next idea that anybody comes up
with, has to be outside the box! *Vala
clamping on her temper*
Ok, the gate is composed of individual
units. Uh...uh...There must be some
kind of energy linkage between them.
Like uh... like a chain.
Exactly! So we...
So we need a big ole set of bolt cutters.
*Vala gives up*
Oooh! Too far outside the box. Get closer
to the box!
Vala shakes head, jogs off down the corridor, she keeps on going.
Planetary collapse is speeding up exponentially.
I estimate singularity formation is
minutes away and there will be a significant
shockwave. Whatever we're gonna do,
we have to do it now.
Sir? Someone has just activated the
*looks round, registering Valaís absence*
Cloaked cargo ship. Rings activate, Jaffa goes to inspect. He
enters and Vala Zats him, beaming him to the Prometheus. She
heads to the pilots seat.
Hey! Don't leave without me.
(on radio)Vala! Where the hell are you?
Oh, you care now!
I'm aboard the cloaked cargo ship that
Gerak left behind to watch us.
How did you find it?
Good guess? Look, the tones are set
a certain way. Rings seek out the nearest
set, which happen to be aboard this
cargo ship, cloaked or not. *pokes at
What are you doing?
Trying to help, Daniel. Someone had
to do something and you wouldn't listen.
Actually, I got the idea from Colonel
Carter. The objects are being held in
some sort of energy field like links
in a chain and I intend to take the
place of the last link.
Vala, when that singularity forms, there
will be a powerful shockwave. The cargo
ship won't survive.
I'm counting on it. I'll ring back before
it hits. Then you can all thank me immensely.
Vala, decloaks the ship and moves it toward the objects.
Shields to maximum.
She's running out of time.
Vala move the ship into an empty spot creating a huge surge.
Back on the Prometheus
It's working. She disrupted the energy
field holding the objects in place.
*Shot of objects* The singularity is
forming. *Planet shrinks*
Vala hurries towards the rings, the Ship shaking losing her balance
but she makes it. Hitting the buttons. Rings activate. The Planet
disappears and shock wave is sent out destroying the objects
and cargo ship.
Prometheus. Everyone cheers.
She did it. The gate's been destroyed.
*staring* Did Vala make it back onboard?
Jackson, bites lip, swallows and then his legs give out beneath
him, Mitchell grabbing him
Get a message to Stargate Command. The
Ori beachhead has been destroyed.
Nerous is being held in a room, his hands cuffed together. Landry
There's still time to repent, General.
The Ori are forgiving.
That won't be necessary. SG1 has destroyed
the Ori beachhead.
*laughs* You're lying.
Iíve witnessed their power, General.
Power that will one day be mine. And
if what you say is true, you have merely
forestalled the inevitable... And...
when you put me to death for what I
have done, I shall ascend.
...you will descend to a small dark
room in the basement of Area 51 and
you'll stay there till you come up with
a defense against the Ori. That was
*frowns, laughs* what would possibly
compel me to do that?
Hunger. *takes the smile right off nerousí
face. They all leave*
Tealíc, Mitchell, and Carter walking toward infirmary aboard
You know, these Ori are just going to
try it again.
Sam, we could sure use someone like
you on the front line. Just think about
it. *he heads off ahead*
*wakes* Sorry, I keep falling asleep.
Well, it's better than the alternative.
You're lucky the bracelet's affect was
Yeah, lucky me.
Vala Maldorran will be mourned.
I've been going over the telemetry from
the last few seconds before the formation
of the singularity. A matter stream
left the cargo ship just before it exploded.
I mean... There's at least a slight
chance that it was pulled into the singularity.
So you're saying she could be alive,
somewhere in the Ori home galaxy.
*looking hopeful* Well...We wanted to
send them a message.
The Boys all grin slightly. Sam a little less understanding.
Daniel lies back smiling.
