|The episode opens with McKay and
Sam climbing some stairs at the SGC. They are discussing Anubis,
with McKay doing his rather funny Goa'uld impressions, Sam is
A couple of geeky scientists give McKay the idea to fire an EM
pulse through the gate. Major Carter doesn't think its such a
good idea, as the iris would have to be opened. They also don't
know how much EM would be required. General Hammond gives Sam
until McKay's plan is setup to think of a better idea. *opening
Teal'c, Bra'tac and Ry'ac have successfully located an Anubis
planet they cannot dial. Ry'ac insists that he will accompany
his father and master Bra'tac, Teal'c unwillfully agrees.
Major Carter tries to dissuade General Hammond to go along with
McKay's Plan, but hasn't got any better ideas. Sam goes down to
the gate room, and gleefully points out that McKay's put the
pulse generator the wrong way round.
Ry'ac wants to go with his father on to the planets surface.
They come under fire when it appears that Anubis can detect
cloaked craft. Ry'ac points out that its equally as dangerous on
the ship as on the planet, and is transported to the surface
with Bra'tac and Teal'c. Teal'c shows concern for his son, and
tells him to stay close to him, as the guards may be aware of
On the surface Bra'tac unleashes a Goa'uld flash bang as they
are spotted by guards. A battle ensues, Teal'c and Bratac show
skillful mastering of their staff, and Ry'ac, his zat. Ry'ac
takes one in the back of his shoulder. But Teal'c whacks the
guard in the face, spins his staff around under his arm, and
unleashes a blast straight into his chest without looking.
Back at the SGC the pulse generator is ready. The blast doors
are closed and Sam opens the Iris with a hand scanner (more
later). Energy transfer is increasing through the gate. The EM
generator is wound up and lightning type stuff is bounced around
the gate room and control center. Hammond orders the Iris to be
closed, Sam puts her hand on the scanner and gets shocked. She's
left lying unconscious on the SGC floor:
McKay: She's not gonna be happy when she wakes up is she?
Hammond *on phone*:'Medical team to the control room
McKay: She is gonna wake up isn't she?
The three Jaffa warriors are hiding from glider patrols. Ry'ac
is quite shocked that his seniors were not hit, though
Teal'c: It is always more difficult to hit a moving target
Bra'tac: Its also helpful to be lucky
Teal'C looks round and grins as another glider fly's overhead,
they move off.
McKay and Sam are in the infirmary.
McKay: I always wanted to be a pianist
Sam *thinks he said something else*: Excuse me???
McKay: Concert pianist? ......
Sam looks down and grins. McKay talks about his childhood,
attempting to bond with Sam. Major Carter is somewhat baffled by
McKay: Hospital gowns turn me on.
McKay complements Sam, which creeps her out. Sam decides to get
dressed and has to tell McKay to leave. She declines his offer
to hold something.
Teal'c Bra'tac and Ry'ac hide on a hill overlooking Anubis's
weapon. Its a big ring of stones with an energy beam pulsing
around the top of them. In the centre is the weapon itself
shooting out a beam.
Teal'c recognises it to have been built by the Ancients, and
they set off to destroy it. Ry'ac is left on the hill. They hope
that Anubis can only operate it and not re-build it quickly.
The scientists are bickering and McKay and Carter notice Jonas
in the gate room. Sam joins Jonas.
Jonas asks how the gate was brought into the mountain. Sam
explains that the roof retracts to reveal a shaft to the
surface. At the top is a crane. Sam gets the idea to move the
gate off earth.
Teal'c and Bra'tac discover a shield around the weapon. They
Sam hatches a plan to launch the gate into space using the X302
and a 747 Jet. The scientist aren't convinced but Carter say's
its happening. Hammond tells them to move it and congratulates
Sam. The Major points out that it was Jonas who gave her the
idea, and they wont have a Stargate no more.
With yet another bit of that cool staff weapon spinning, Teal'c
and Bra'tac are surrounded and surrender.
The gate is craned out of the SGC. Hammond and Colonel Chekov
are discussing the US renting 'the Russian' Stargate (they
nicked the first gate out of the ocean, when Thor's ship crash
landed). The Russians also want the X302 technology. General
Hammond says there will be no Stargate program on earth, because
Anubis can launch another strike.
Teal'c is being interrogated for Ry'ac's location.
Sam briefs Jack on the X302 plan. Jack finds it 'bazaar' that
Sam wishes she could go with him. O'Neill gets in a lift and
they discuss Jonas's.
Ry'ac listens in on a group of guards. They are ordered to
transport the prisoners to the Hatak. Ry'ac sneaks off as a
glider goes overhead.
Jacks in one of those quite fashionable suits again. The X302
and gate are on top of a big 747 passenger jet. They take off.
Ry'ac makes it to where the gliders are kept.
The X302 (+ gate) separate from the 747 and head for space. The
X302 is struggling and jack shouldn't fire the rocket booster
yet. O'Neill burns the rocket, but it doesn't last long enough.
McKay has the idea of dropping the gate in the Atlantic.
Ry'ac attacks the Jaffa guarding Teal'c and Bra'tac in a death
Jack wants to use the hyperspace drive inside earths atmosphere.
McKay and Sam argue. Jonas and Sam decide that using hyperspace
for 1 second would be long enough and safer, Hammond calls the
Sam and McKay override the safety system of the X302.
Ry'ac is being attacked by another glider.
Sam wishes jack good luck and he activates the hyperspace
window, you see some clamps retract. There is visual
conformation that the X302 has entered hyperspace. Carter tries
to reach O'Neill on the radio, and an explosion is confirmed in
the sky, over 3million miles from earth.
There is visual of a shoot and the cockpit module is intact.
O'Neill is reported to be conscious and waving.
Ry'ac flies in and destroys Anubis's weapon with a couple of
blasts from his death glider.
Bra'tac restrained Teal'c has he cries out his sons name,
fearing he has been hurt.
McKay and Sam are chatting and walking down a corridor in the
SGC. They stop and McKay shakes Sam's hand, Sam gives McKay a
peck on the cheek.
McKay: That means you don't hate me.
Sam: Maybe... to bad for you.
Sam *walks off smirking*: I was more attracted to you when i
Jack wants to command his own boat, one with oars. Hammond and
O'Neill joke a little with each other.
Hammond's notified of a communication.
The general and SG1 assemble in the control room. Its Teal'c,
informing them of the weapons destruction. He is in the cargo
ship and Hammond gives him permission to land.
Teal'c honors his son, himself and Bra'tac, each with a hand on
The 'Russian' gate is being lowered into the SGC, Hammond and
Carter discuss the rental of the gate. Money, the X302 plans and
'one other thing'.
Ry'ac is preparing to leave. He shakes hands with O'Neill, and
hugs his father as Jack leaves. Jonas chats with Jack about
being on SG1.
O'Neill meets with Hammond who tells him about the deal to have
a Russian member on SG1
Jack: This is the thanks i get for saving the world again.
Jack suggests giving the Russians there own unit, and tells
general Hammond that he's already chosen Daniel's replacement.
Jonas arrives in the gate room wearing a helmet, which Sam
suggests he looses. The 'new' SG1 go through the gate (its the
bit from the new title sequence).
