Une nouvelle ère 2/2 (Saison 1 de Stargate Atlantis)

Transcript VO

INT-ATHOS FOREST

[Teyla leads Sheppard over an embankment.

SHEPPARD
How much further is this place?

TEYLA
Not far.

[Sheppard falls down the embankment, but tries to look suave. Teyla grins.]

INT-ATLANTIS CONTROL ROOM

WEIR
Tell me some good news, Rodney.

MCKAY
I can't do that.

WEIR
The shield has held back the ocean for centuries.

MCKAY
And probably would've kept going for years more, but our arrival changed that. Now it's nothing more than a thin shell between the buildings and the water.

WEIR
We stopped exploring.

MCKAY
The damage was already done. Another section of the city, on the far side, was flooded an hour or so ago.

GRODIN
Even occupying this room is draining power.

MKCAY
We need to evacuate the moment Colonel Sumner reports back it's safe.

WEIR
You're saying we have to abandon the city?

[The city creaks.]

MCKAY
The sooner we leave, the longer that shield holds.

[Weir sighs.]

INT-CAVE

[Teyla leads Sheppard into a cave.]

TEYLA
I used to play here as a child. I believe this is where the survivors hid from the Wraith during the last great attack.

SHEPPARD
Let me, uh...

[He tries to start a Zippo lighter. Teyla uses an advanced device to light a torch and looks at him with a smug smile.]

TEYLA
We mastered fire long ago.

SHEPPARD
I guess so.

[Sheppard replaces his lighter. She leads him into another chamber. Sheppard catches the light reflecting on a shiny object. He picks up a pendant.]

SHEPPARD
What's this?

TEYLA

(surprised)

I lost this years ago. How did you-

SHEPPARD
It was just lying right over there. It was reflecting off the light.

[He helps her put it on. She looks at it while Sheppard notices the walls. They're covered with pictograms.]

SHEPPARD
Someone's been busy, huh?

TEYLA
The drawings in the caves are extensive. Many must date back thousands of years or more.

SHEPPARD
Does this represent the destruction of your city?

TEYLA
This drawing far predates that.

SHEPPARD
So, what? Someone knew it was going to happen?

TEYLA
I believe it happens...again and again. The Wraith allow our kind to grow in numbers, and when that number reaches a certain point, they return to...cull their human herd. Sometimes, a few hundred years will pass before they awaken again. We've visited many, many worlds. I know of none untouched by the Wraith. The last great holocaust was five generations ago, but still, they return in smaller numbers, to remind us of their power.

SHEPPARD
That's a hell of a way to live.

TEYLA
We move our hunting camps around. We try to teach our children not to live in fear, but it is hard. Some of us can sense the Wraith coming. That gives us warning. We should go. It will be dark soon.

EXT-ATHOS, NEAR STARGATE, NIGHT

FORD
Man, days are short here.

SUMNER

(over radio)

Major Sheppard, this is Colonel Sumner. Come in.

FORD

(into radio)

Colonel, this is Lieutenant Ford. Major Sheppard is out of radio range at the moment.

SUMNER

(over radio, arriving at settlement)

Where the hell is he?

FORD

(into radio)

I think Teyla wanted him to see something.

[The Stargate activates with an incoming wormhole.]

FORD

Defensive positions.
(into radio)

Colonel, we have gate activity here.

[He pulls off his goggles as three small fighter-like aircraft fly through (Wraith darts).]

FORD
Colonel, three bandits headed your way.

EXT-ATHOS SETTLEMENT

SUMNER
Take cover!

[A woman screams as people panic and scatter. One falls.]

SUMNER
Get up.

EXT-ATHOS FOREST

[Teyla pauses while leading Sheppard through the forest. She listens in the distance.]

SHEPPARD
What is it?

TEYLA
The Wraith.

[They run.]

EXT-FOREST NEAR SETTLEMENT, NIGHT

[The Athosians race to evacuate.]

WOMAN
Just leave it.

[Halling searches for his son.]

HALLING
Jinto, come. Jinto.

[Sumner warily looks around the camp, spotting the ship making a pass overhead. He jogs towards the woods. He sees Halling and some other Athosians jogging towards him, then getting swept up in an energy beam from the ship and completely disappearing.]

SUMNER

(shouting)

Fire on that target!

[He and others fire their rifles at the ship as it loops to make another pass. Around them, they spot wisps of movement, unformed ghosts that disappear before they can focus on them.]

EXT-FOREST, NIGHT

[Teyla races back to the settlement. Sheppard struggles to keep up.]

SHEPPARD
Teyla!

BATES

(over radio)

Colonel, they're on the ground. They're all around us.

[Sheppard turns to follow Teyla at a fork in the path, but can no longer see her. He hears a Wraith ship pass over head.]

SHEPPARD

(warily)

Teyla?

[He hears wisps of movement the same as Sumner did at camp. He fires at one as it dissipates. He aims at another, but Teyla steps through it, breaking the illusion.]

TEYLA
They are not really there.

[Sheppard lowers his weapon and approaches, nonplussed.]

TEYLA
Do not trust your eyes. The Wraith can make you see things that are not there. We must hurry.

[They continue to run towards the settlement.]

EXT-ATHOSIAN SETTLEMENT, NIGHT

[The Wraith ship comes around again, firing blasts at the settlement.]

SHEPPARD

(over radio)

Colonel, this is Sheppard. What you see on the ground is just an illusion. Concentrate your fire on the ships.

SUMNER

(yelling around him)

Fire at the ships! Fire at the ships!

[Several of his command follow his orders, ceasing their aim at the wisps and shooting at the ships. Sumner moves over to Bates, who's frozen at the illusions, still holding his bazooka.]

SUMNER

(shaking him)

Bates, snap out of it!

BATES
They're everywhere, sir.

[Sumner drags him over to an open spot and points to a ship.]

SUMNER
Take that thing down!

[Bates follows orders and blasts the ship out of the sky. Sumner and Bates are both immediately swept up by a beam from another ship.]

EXT-FOREST, NIGHT

[A beam chases Sheppard and Teyla through the forest. Sheppard dives right, but Teyla gets swept up in the beam. Sheppard turns around and gets up, but all is quiet.]

SHEPPARD
Teyla. Teyla?

STACKHOUSE

(over radio)

Sir, the Colonel's been taken.

[Sheppard runs towards the settlement.]

EXT-STARGATE CLEARING, NIGHT

[The DHD begins to activate. Ford, taking cover behind it, spots the chevrons lighting.]

FORD

(into radio)

The 'gate's coming on again. Two enemy ships approaching.

[The Stargate activates.]

SHEPPARD
Let them go. There are friendlies onboard. Look at the dialing device. Burn those symbols into your mind.

[The two ships pass through the Stargate. Ford nervously stares at the DHD, looking at the address lit.]

EXT-FOREST NEAR SETTLEMENT, NIGHT

[Sheppard comes across the wreckage of the ship Bates took down. He sees a forearm of a Wraith, detached from the rest of the body, but still crawling on its own.]

SHEPPARD
Son of a...

[Sheppard shoots the arm. Jinto runs up.]

JINTO
Help! Help me.

[They both look down at the arm. It's no longer moving.]

JINTO
I can't find my father.

[Sheppard clutches Jinto's shoulder.]

INT-ATLANTIS ALCOVE, UNDERWATER

[Grodin stands by a window looking at the city, holding a scanner. Weir comes up next to him.]

GRODIN
Here it comes.

WEIR
What am I looking for?

[Part of the city glows for a moment with a strange clunking noise, and bubbles erupt.]

GRODIN
There. Another part of the force field just failed. I don't think we have much time.

[Weir sighs nervously.]

INT-ATLANTIS CONTROL ROOM

[McKay wanders the panels. Weir enters.]

WEIR
How are we doing? If we can just buy ourselves another day, maybe we could-

MCKAY

(interrupting)

The city is sacrificing parts of itself in order to maintain these main areas, but catastrophic failure is inevitable.

WEIR
Not in my wildest dreams did I hope to find the lost city of the Ancients so completely untouched, so pristine, and we have no choice but to walk away from this?

MCKAY
In order to save it.

WEIR
To save it for whom? We don't have enough power to send a message. As far as Earth is concerned, we're just going to be missing, presumed lost.

MCKAY
We'll be back. We'll find a power source somewhere in Pegasus.

WEIR
We have yet to hear from Colonel Sumner. We've got no idea what's out there.

MCKAY
We can't wait. It is time to go, now.

[Weir steps out to the balcony and keys her handheld radio.)

WEIR

(into radio)

Attention, all personnel. This is Weir.

[A heavy rumbling begins to sound and shake the area. Grodin and McKay stumble for controls.]

WEIR

(continuing into radio)
Stand by for immediate evacuation.
(to McKay)

Dial the gate.

[McKay starts to dial, but another signal comes in too fast.]

MAKAY
We've got an incoming wormhole.

[The shield automatically goes up.]

GRODIN
I'm reading Lieutenant Ford's identification code.

WEIR
Let 'em in.

[Sheppard leads a group of Athosians through and starts to herd them in the 'Gate Room.]

SHEPPARD
Step in, folks. Move away from the puddle.

INT-ATLANTIS GATE ROOM

[Weir hurries down the staircase to meet Sheppard.]

WEIR
Major Sheppard! Major Sheppard, who are these people?

SHEPPARD
Survivors from the settlement. We were attacked. Sumner and some of our men were taken. What's going on?

[He stares around at the shaking city. Weir pulls him further away from the refugees.]

WEIR
We are in no position to help anyone right now.

SHEPPARD
What the hell's going on here?

WEIR
We were about to abandon the city.

SHEPPARD
Going back there is a really bad idea.

WEIR
Major Sheppard, the shield is about to fail, and the ocean is about to come crashing in on us. Do you have a better place for us to go?

SHEPPARD
Jinto, you have any other address we can gate to?

JINTO
Yes, many.

WEIR
He's just a boy.

JINTO
I am Jinto.

[Sheppard grabs Jinto by the arm and herds him up to the control room.]

SHEPPARD
She's pleased to meet you.

INT-ATLANTIS CONTROL ROOM

MCKAY
The shield is collapsing!

EXT-ATLANTIS OCEAN

[The city shakes free of the ocean bottom, knocking several of the inhabitants off their feet. It rises slowly.]

INT-ATLANTIS CONTROL ROOM

[People help each other to their feet. Grodin heads to the city's DHD.]

GRODIN
I'm dialing an address.

WEIR

(calling from below)

No, wait.

MCKAY
She's right.

EXT-ATLANTIS OCEAN

[The city continues to rise from the depths of the ocean.]

INT-ATLANTIS

SHEPPARD
We're moving!

EXT-ATLANTIS OCEAN, DAY

[The city breaks through the surface. Daylight streams through the windows as the city continues to reach for the sky.]

INT-ATLANTIS CONTROL AND GATE ROOM

[Everyone looks on in wonder at the light around them. Systems again turn on. Sheppard, Jinto, Weir, McKay, Grodin, and Ford move to a window. They watch as the lower portions of the city break through the surface.]

FORD
We're on the surface.

WEIR
I was hoping for another day. It looks like we just got a whole lot more than that. Let's not waste it.

[Sheppard smiles and nods.]

EXT-ATLANTIS, DAY

[A wave continues to expand outward from the city as it settles on the surface.]

EXT-ATLANTIS, DAY

INT-ATLANTIS GATE ROOM

[Ford walks amongst the Athosians and expedition members, taking command.]

FORD
People, listen up. No one gets to sit down until they clear two pieces of equipment off this deck. Now, let's go.

INT-ATLANTIS GATE ROOM

[Sheppard, Weir, Grodin, and McKay are up in the control room.]

MCKAY
The last Zero-Point Module is depleted, but limited power has returned now that our own generators aren't going to hold back an ocean. Life support systems are working, but the planet's atmosphere is breathable, well, notwithstanding the inevitable allergens.

WEIR
So now could our naquadah generator supply enough power to the shield for defensive purposes?

MCKAY
Not even close.

SHEPPARD
On the surface without a shield? We're target practice.

MCKAY

(sarcastic)

I'm acutely aware of that, Major, but thank you for reinforcing it.

SHEPPARD
When can you tell me where the Wraith took Colonel Sumner and the others?

MCKAY
Even with the six symbols Lieutenant Ford provided there are still hundreds of permutations-

SHEPPARD

(interrupting)

720.

MCKAY

(nonplussed)

Yes. I knew that, of course. I'm just surprised you did.

SHEPPARD
Take away the coordinates you can't get a lock on, and that's your one, and when you find it, send a MALP.

[McKay steps away. Weir approaches.]

WEIR
Major? A word.

[He follows her to the back of the control room. As Weir nears what she thought was a window, the door to a balcony opens, surprising them all. Sheppard and Weir cautiously step outside.]

EXT-ATLANTIS BALCONY, DAY

WEIR
Wow.

[They both look down over the railing, marveling at the sight of the city.]

SHEPPARD
Let me guess. You're not going to let me rescue my people.

WEIR
Major, you don't even know if they're alive.

SHEPPARD
You don't leave people in the hands of the enemy. And the fact that we are having this conversation in private lets me know that you know damn well that it's wrong and it will totally undermine your leadership. So as ranking military officer-

WEIR

(interrupting)

All right, just shut up and listen to me for a moment, all right? Come on, what do we know about the Wraith? One of the few things we do know is that they are the enemy that defeated the Ancients. When we first began to use the stargate we found on Earth, we got ourselves into serious trouble. Why?

SHEPPARD
I don't need a history lesson.

WEIR
Because the people in charge didn't consider the ramifications before they reacted.

SHEPPARD
They took our people. How am I supposed to react?

WEIR
And we're defenseless! You said so yourself.

WEIR
How do you know going off on some half-assed rescue mission isn't going to bring them all right back here to our doorstep?

SHEPPARD

(insistent)

Maybe it will...but it's the right thing to do. Why? Because it is.

WEIR
John-

SHEPPARD

(angry)

If we're not going to do this, and I mean right now, let's just turn tail and pack up, because they're coming.

WEIR
You don't know that.

SHEPPARD
Our people are in the hands of the enemy, Doctor. Do you know what that means? It is just a matter of time before the Wraith figure out that this is the base of our operation.

WEIR
I just need more information. I mean, who knows? Maybe we could negotiate a peaceful-

SHEPPARD

(incredulous)

Peaceful? Are you kidding? We weren't there for more than a few hours before they showed up.

WEIR
Is it possible they came because of you? And that one of these people you brought back here with you tipped them off?

SHEPPARD

(dismissively)

It's possible.

WEIR
See, that is exactly the kind of snap decision I'm referring to.

SHEPPARD
They're not all bad people, and you know, if we're going to stick around here, we need friends.

WEIR

(nodding)

Okay, I see your point. Now, you see mine. I will not authorize a rescue mission unless I am sure there's at least a remote chance of success. I'm not sending more good people, including you, to their deaths.

SHEPPARD
Okay.

[He leaves Weir alone on the balcony.]

INT-WRAITH HOLDING CELL

[Teyla awakens to find herself in a cell with some of her people and Sumner and Bates.]

TORAN
Are you all right?

TEYLA
Where are we?

SUMNER
Any idea what to expect?

TEYLA
No.

SUMNER
Your friend was the one who said the Wraith would come if we went down into the ruins.

HALLING
Perhaps you should have heeded his warning.

SUMNER
How do I know he's not the one who told them?

[Footsteps approach.]

HALLING
Someone comes.

[They back away from the cell door as a Wraith and two warrior guards approach. The main Wraith is a tall humanoid with pale skin of a greenish hue. Its hair is white and its features gaunt. It has a mustache. A slit is on either side of its cheek. The warriors are muscular with the same skin tone. They have white hair, but their facial features are covered with some kind of organic mask. The door opens. Sumner steps forward.]

SUMNER
I'm Colonel Marshall Sum-

[The Wraith backhands Sumner, knocking him half-across the room. It's eyes light on Toran. A warrior approaches him.]

TORAN
No, please...

[The Wraith warrior grabs Toran by the throat, lifts him up and starts to leave.]

TEYLA

(pleading)

Take me in his place!

[Sumner crawls forward and stumbles to his feet.]

SUMNER
No, take me. We're the ones you're after, right? I'm their leader.

[The Wraith looks at Sumner dismissively and leaves with Toran and the warriors. The doors close behind them.]

TEYLA
They have no need to explain themselves.

SUMNER
Yeah, I got that.

INT-ATLANTIS GATE ROOM

[A technician, Weir, and McKay study a monitor display that shows only darkness.]

TECHNICIAN
We're receiving visual telemetry.

WEIR
I can't see anything.

MCKAY
No atmospheric readings at all.

[Sumner and Grodin are watching a different monitor of the same data and spot a small round point of dim light before it quickly rotates offscreen.]

SHEPPARD
Hey, what was that?

MCKAY
Rotate the camera.

[The technician complies. The camera shows rocks floating in space and rings surrounding a planet. The Stargate floats in orbit above the planet, the wormhole still active.]

MCKAY

(scoffing)

Well, there goes that MALP.

SHEPPARD
It's in space.

MCKAY
It's in high orbit around a planet on the far side of the galaxy.

WEIR
Are you sure this is the right address?

MCKAY
It's the only one we could get a lock on.

WEIR

(sighing)
Very well. Shut it down.
(to Sheppard)

I'm sorry.

[She leaves. McKay continues to study the monitor as the Stargate shuts down.]

MCKAY
Come with me, Major.

[Sheppard follows McKay out of the room.]

INT-ATLANTIS JUMPER BAY

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER

[McKay and Sheppard enter the ship. It lights up as they move inside. Sheppard walks to the pilot seat and touches the console. It immediately lights up.]

MCKAY
You think you can fly it?

SHEPPARD
What do you say we find out?

[He sits in the pilot's chair.]

INT-ATLANTIS INFIRMARY

[Beckett is studying the Wraith forearm under heavy magnification. Weir enters.]

WEIR
Doctor Beckett, what was it you wanted me to see?

[He turns to her and grins. She stops short at seeing the specimen he's studying. He lifts it up.]

BECKETT
These cells have none of the normal human inhibiting proteins whatsoever. That gives them an incredible ability to regenerate.

WEIR
What about the movement Major Sheppard saw?

BECKETT
As far as independent behavior, I'd say that anything he saw was caused by a residual command language in the severed nerve endings.

WEIR
All right, anything else?

BECKETT
The being this arm belonged to...if I was a betting man, I'd say it was old, very, very old.

WEIR
How old?

[He turns the hand over, showing a small puckered incision in the middle of the palm of the hand, surrounded by small holes.]

BECKETT
As long as the cells are properly nourished, I don't see a life form like this ever dying of natural aging the way we do...and they'd be bloody hard to kill.

WEIR
I don't like the sound of that.

BECKETT
I don't blame you.

INT-ATLANTIS JUMPER BAY

[Weir and McKay enter the room. A constant thrum, like of some kind of energy powered up makes a steady hum. There is no sign of Sheppard or the ship he was in.]

WEIR
What is that noise?

MCKAY

(exasperated)

I...I don't... He was right here. Major!

[The ship rematerializes from an invisible cloak, hovering in front of them. Sheppard waves.]

SHEPPARD

(over radio)

You said you wanted a tactical advantage?

WEIR

(smiling)

All right, so you can fly that thing. It doesn't mean you can pull off a rescue.

SHEPPARD

(patiently)

Doctor...this is why you brought me here.

[She stares jaw agape and shakes her head.]

INT-ATLANTIS GATE ROOM

[The room is bustling with activity. Weir approaches McKay.]

WEIR
Ready?

MCKAY

(speaking rapidly)

I have no idea. This technology is so far beyond us, I mean, we haven't a clue what we're dealing with. I mean, for all I know, we could...

[He notices Weir's glare.]

MCKAY
Yeah. Ready.

INT-SHIP

[Ford walks past the group of marines sitting in the rear compartment.]

FORD
All right, boys, get ready to go.

[He takes the co-pilot seat next to Sheppard and grins excitedly.]

FORD
Gateship One ready to go.

SHEPPARD
"Gateship One"? A little puddle jumper like this?

FORD
It's a ship that goes through the 'gate-Gateship One.

SHEPPARD
Oh, no, no, no, that's all wrong.

FORD
Dr. McKay thought it was cool.

SHEPPARD

Oh, okay, well, it's official...You don't get to name anything, ever.
(into radio)

Flight, this is...Puddle Jumper. We're go to launch.

INT-ATLANTIS CONTROL ROOM

MCKAY

(miffed)

This is Flight. I thought we were going with Gateship.

SHEPPARD

(over radio)

Negative, Flight.

MCKAY
Stand by. It's a ship that goes through the gate.

[He notices Weir's curious but impatient expression.]

MCKAY

Uh...fine.
(into radio)

Puddle Jumper, you are clear for launch.

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER

SHEPPARD
Dial it up, Lieutenant.

[Ford starts to dial the jumper's DHD.]

INT-ATLANTIS GATE ROOM

[The Stargate activates. The ceiling retracts as the jumper lowers into the Gate Room. Sheppard mans the controls and it flies through the active wormhole. The Stargate deactivates.]

WEIR

(low, to herself)

Be safe.

EXT-SPACE

[The puddle jumper flies through the Space Gate.]

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER

SHEPPARD
Wow. This is cool.

FORD
It looks like you've got the hang of it.

SHEPPARD
I tell you what, Lieutenant. I know a lot of fighter pilots who'd kill to fly this thing. It's like it reads your mind.

[A display appears superimposed on the windshield in front of them, displaying lots of data.]

FORD

(nervous)

Did you do that?

SHEPPARD
I was just...wondering where we go from here.

FORD
I'll take that as a yes. So how do we find them once we land?

SHEPPARD
Well, I've been thinking about that too.

[From beside Sheppard, a small hand held device pops out of the wall. Sheppard pulls it out, looks at it, shrugs, and puts it in a pocket.]

SHEPPARD
Now I'm thinking about a nice turkey sandwich.

[They look around for several moments, but nothing happens.]

FORD
Worth a try.

EXT-WRAITH PLANET, NIGHT

[A large facility is set up in a forest on the planet.]

INT-WRAITH CELL

[The Wraith and warriors stalk towards the cell again. They enter, and this time the Wraith stares down Sumner. It hisses and stalks away. Sumner glances back at Bates, stone-faced, then, back erect, calmly follows his prison guards. Teyla bites her lip with worry.]

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER

[The cloaked jumper lands in the woods just outside the facility. Sheppard exchanges looks with Ford. He gets up and heads to the back.]

FORD

(to others)

Lock and load.

EXT-FOREST CLEARING, DAWN

[The jumper de-cloaks as it lands, the team exiting and spreading out, weapons at ready.]

SHEPPARD

All right, teams of two. Learn what you can and lay down your defenses as you see fit. I want to be able to light this place up if we have to.
(to Stackhouse)

Two clicks, you're clear to talk.

STACKHOUSE
Yes, sir.

SHEPPARD

(to everyone)
Do not engage the enemy.
(tapping Ford)

You're with me.

INT-WRAITH DINING ROOM

[Sumner is led to a large room. There is food set up on a table, including the head of a mastadge. The skeletal remains of Toran sit on a chair. Sumner recognizes him by his clothes. He warily looks around. There is a darkened ceiling with several interlocking triangular honeycombs. He starts at a noise and turns around. Behind his back a Wraith Queen leaps down to the floor. She has similar features to the male Wraith, but her hair is red. He feels her presence and turns to face her, frightened.]

WRAITH QUEEN
You must feel hunger by now.

[She snarls at him.]

INT-WRAITH CORRIDOR

[A warrior stalks down a passage. Behind him, unnoticed, are Sheppard and Ford, who move into the passageway when the route is clear.]

FORD
I thought getting in was going to be the hard part. That's the first one we've seen.

[Ford sets some C-4 into the wall and primes it. Sheppard studies the handheld device he took from the jumper.]

SHEPPARD
The moving dot should be him. Go over there.

SHEPPARD
Yeah, that's you.

FORD
So, we've got ourselves a life-signs detector.

SHEPPARD
We can name it later.

INT-WRAITH CELL

[Teyla hears a noise. She sees Sheppard and Ford approaching from a side-corridor.]

TEYLA
Major?

SHEPPARD
Shh. Are you all right?

TEYLA
How did you find us?

HALLING
Is my son alive?

SHEPPARD
He's well and waiting for you.

[He looks at who is in the cell.]

SHEPPARD
Where's Colonel Sumner?

BATES
He was taken by the Wraith.

TEYLA
We don't know where.

SHEPPARD
Well, how about when?

TEYLA
Not long.

SHEPPARD
I knew something had to go wrong.

[He clicks his radio twice.]

STACKHOUSE

(over radio)

This is Stackhouse. Go ahead, sir.

SHEPPARD

(into radio)

How about a diversion in a little bit?

EXT-WRAITH PLANET CLEARING

SHEPPARD

(over radio)

You're going to need to make some noise out there.

STACKHOUSE

(into radio)

Yes, sir.

[Stackhouse moves to the jumper.]

INT-WRAITH CELL AREA

SHEPPARD

(to Ford)

Rig up enough C-4 to blow a hole and get these people out of here on my signal, all right? I can find the Colonel with this. There aren't that many Wraith around. I should be able to do this. If I'm not back in twenty minutes, blow the cells and get out.

FORD
You're the only one who can fly these people out of here.

SHEPPARD
Yeah, I'm going to fly us all out of here, including the Colonel.

FORD
I'm saying I should be the one to go, sir.

SHEPPARD
Twenty minutes...I'll find him.

INT-WRAITH DINING ROOM

WRAITH QUEEN
What do you call yourself?

SUMNER

(with bravado)

Colonel Marshall Sumner, United States Marine Corps.

WRAITH QUEEN

(amused)

So little fear. Is it valor...or ignorance?

SUMNER
We travel through the Stargate as peaceful explorers.

WRAITH QUEEN
You must eat, yet you resist your hunger. Why?

SUMNER
Why have you taken my people prisoner?

WRAITH QUEEN
You trespassed upon our feeding ground.

SUMNER

(puzzled)

Feeding ground?

WRAITH QUEEN
All living things must eat. In this, I am sure we are similar. You feel hunger even now. I can sense it. Yet you resist. Why?

SUMNER
Why do you care?

WRAITH QUEEN
Hunger...is distasteful.

SUMNER

(looking nervously at Toran)

It looks to me like the food didn't agree with him.

WRAITH QUEEN
There, we are quite dissimilar, Colonel Sumner. We don't require...our food to agree with us.

[She strokes one finger down the skeleton's cheek. Sumner stares in shock.]

INT-WRAITH CORRIDOR

[Sheppard moves down the corridor, using the life signs detector to guide him.]

INT-WRAITH DINING ROOM

WRAITH QUEEN
What do you call your world?

[Sumner does not answer. The queen approaches.]

WRAITH QUEEN

(hypnotic, echoing voice)

What do you call your world? What...do you call...your world?

[The echo repeats. Sumner struggles to resist.]

SUMNER

(strained)

Earth.

WRAITH QUEEN
It is not among our stars.

SUMNER

(with pained reluctance)

No.

WRAITH QUEEN
Tell me of Earth. How many more are there of your kind? Thousands? Millions?

[Sumner closes his eyes, wincing and shaking to resist her.]

WRAITH QUEEN

(triumphant)

More.

[Sumner opens his eyes, looking defeated. The queen is exultant.]

WRAITH QUEEN
Our feeding ground has not been so rich in ten thousand years.

INT-WRAITH CORRIDOR

[Sheppard continues to move through the area.]

INT-WRAITH DINING ROOM

WRAITH QUEEN

Your will is strong. This one (gestures to Toran)

begged for its life.

SUMNER
Is that the kind of treatment I can expect for myself and my people?

WRAITH QUEEN
As I have said, all living things must eat.

SUMNER

(rebellious)

Then we're done talking.

WRAITH QUEEN
I think not. Kneel.

[She draws a finger down Sumner's face.]

WRAITH QUEEN

(insistent, in the hypnotic echo)

Kneel...

[Sumner, against his own will, falls to his knees.]

WRAITH QUEEN
I have not tasted such strength in so long.

[She rips his t-shirt with one stroke of her hand, baring his chest.]

SUMNER
Go to hell.

WRAITH QUEEN
Earth first.

[She shoves her hand onto his chest. He screams in agony.]

INT-WRAITH CORRIDOR

[Sheppard can hear Sumner's scream and moves towards the sound.]

INT-WRAITH DINING ROOM

WRAITH QUEEN
How many years must I take from you before you tell us what I wish to know? Or shall I take them all?

[Sumner's face contorts in agony as he continues to yell. He begins to age.]

INT-WRAITH CORRIDOR

[Sheppard wanders, looking lost for a moment before getting his bearings.]

INT-WRAITH DINING ROOM

[The Wraith Queen's hand is flat on Sumner's chest, palm against his heart. Sumner's head rocks as he continues to scream in pain. His face looks sunken and aged.]

WRAITH QUEEN
Where is this new feeding ground?

SUMNER

(shaking his head, weak)

I won't.

[Sheppard crawls on his belly from a side corridor to a spot where he can look into the room through a skylight window. He sees the Queen's back to him, feeding on Sumner, who is facing towards the Major. Sheppard shoots the Queen in the back, then kills one of the warrior guards. The Wraith Queen hisses in rage, her fingernails digging into Sumner's chest, drawing blood as she sucks more life from him. He ages more as the bullet exit wounds heal on her own chest. Sheppard shoots the other guard, then stares in curious horror at Sumner's almost skeletal condition.]

[Sumner stares back at Sheppard, looking extraordinarily old. Sumner makes a pleading sound in his throat and nods to Sheppard. Looking grim, Sheppard raises his rifle. He shifts his aim from the Queen's head to Sumner's chest and shoots him right through the Queen's hand. Sumner falls dead.]

[The Queen stares at her injured hand in annoyance. A blue light surrounds Sheppard, and he collapses, stunned into unconsciousness. A Wraith stands to attention, pleased at his catch.]

WRAITH QUEEN
Bring him.

INT-WRAITH DINING ROOM

[Sheppard is pinned by his throat on the table's surface by one of the Wraith warriors.]

SHEPPARD

(strained)

How's the hand feeling?

[Before his eyes the bullet hole in her hand heals. She flexes her hand.]

WRAITH QUEEN
Much better.

SHEPPARD
I'm sorry to hear that.

[The Queen is distracted at spotting the life signs detector sticking out of Sheppard's vest.]

WRAITH QUEEN
How did this come to you?

SHEPPARD
I don't remember.

[She snarls. Ford enters, shooting both her and the guard. Sheppard rolls, keying his radio as he moves.]

SHEPPARD

(into radio)

Light it up.

EXT-WRAITH FACILITY, DAWN

[Explosions rock the facility.]

INT-WRAITH DINING ROOM

[The Queen screams her outrage.]

INT-WRAITH CELL AREA

[Wraith run towards the cell.]

BATES
Cover!

[He shoves people towards the back of the cell as the door explodes.]

INT-WRAITH DINING ROOM

[The Queen continues to scream as Ford shoots more guards who arrive. Sheppard stays down by the table. He picks up the downed Wraith's weapon, which has a large pointed end, and rolls up and out to stab the Queen through, using the weapon as a javelin.]

SHEPPARD
That has to kill you.

[He pulls out the weapon. The Queen collapses.]

SHEPPARD
How'd you find me?

FORD
Tread marks. Standard issue. Sir, let's go.

WRAITH QUEEN

You don't know what you have done. We are merely the caretakers for those that sleep. When I die, the others will awaken.
(in deep growl)

All of them.

[She dies.]

FORD
What's she talking about? How many are left?

[Sheppard picks up the life signs detector. Several dots appear on the display, with more every second. They look up. The honeycomb ceiling lights up. Hundreds of Wraith appear to be awakening, one in each chamber.]

FORD
Sir, we need to leave.

SHEPPARD

(into radio)

Base, we're on the go.

BATES

(into radio)

So are we. Colonel Sumner?

SHEPPARD
Negative.

[They run out.]

INT-ATLANTIS GATE ROOM

[Weir stares at the Stargate. McKay approaches.]

MCKAY

(excitedly)

Dr. Weir. We're getting reports in from all over the city. There's some pretty interesting stuff. We've only been able to provide power to certain sections, but even then, the things that are coming up are just...

[He notices her somber expression and his voice trails off.]

WEIR

(pensive)

I should never have let them go.

MCKAY
For what it's worth, you made the right decision. Give them time.

[He leaves her alone.]

EXT-CLEARING, WRAITH PLANET, DAWN

STACKHOUSE

(into radio)

Major, the Jumper is secure for the moment, but we have a big problem.

EXT-FOREST, WRAITH PLANET, DAWN

[Sheppard leads everyone escaping through the forest back to the jumper.]

SHEPPARD

(to Ford)

Lieutenant, take our six. I'm going to take them back to the Jumper.

FORD
I'll be right behind you.

[Ford slows up and turns around. He fires into the stillness, catching wisps of visions. Teyla suddenly appears behind him and disarms him, flips the gun around and gives it back to him.]

TEYLA

(scolding)

There's nothing there.

FORD

(petulant)

I'm sure I saw something.

TEYLA
Only what the Wraith wish you to see! Firing your weapon will reveal our position. Come on.

INT-CLEARING, WRAITH PLANET, DAWN

[The group has reached the clearing. Sheppard pauses as the Athosians and Bates run past.]

SHEPPARD

(shouting)

Get in!

[He hears Wraith ships approaching. He raises his pistol, then changes his mind and grabs one of the marines' rifles. That marine unholsters his own sidearm. They all aim towards the sky.]

INT-FOREST, WRAITH PLANET, DAWN

[Ford and Teyla run towards the clearing. A Wraith ship approaches. Teyla knocks Ford down, diving out of the way just as the beam goes by. Sheppard stands before them, shooting down the ship as it flies overhead. Debris falls around them. Ford smiles.]

FORD
Thank you, sir.

SHEPPARD
Let's try not to make a habit of this.

[He helps them up as they run back towards the jumper.]

EXT-CLEARING, WRAITH PLANET, DAWN

[Several Wraith ships fly overhead as the few stragglers run in.]

STACKHOUSE
We have incoming!

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER

[Sheppard immediately moves to the pilot's seat.]

SHEPPARD
Okay...now what am I thinking?

[The ship lifts off.]

SHEPPARD
Everybody okay back there?

TEYLA
We are well enough.

[Ford takes his seat.]

FORD
Hope that was the hard part.

[As they enter orbit, they see several of the small Wraith ships flanking the Space Stargate.]

SHEPPARD
Oh, crap. I don't think we've gotten to the hard part yet.

EXT-SPACE

[The hive ships surround the Spacegate.]

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER

[Teyla approaches Sheppard.]

TEYLA
What can we do?

FORD
We're safe as long as they can't see us.

SHEPPARD
They don't have to. There's only one way for us to go. The minute we activate the Stargate, they can start shooting blind and blow us away on our approach.

FORD
Then how can we get through?

SHEPPARD
We have to draw them away from the gate and double back.

EXT-SPACE

[The jumper de-cloaks and flies away. Several dart ships break formation and give chase.]

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER

SHEPPARD
Be prepared to dial the gate on my mark.

[Ford's hand hovers over the first chevron.]

EXT-SPACE

[One of the darts fires at the jumper.]

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER

SHEPPARD
Do you see anything like a weapons console over there?

EXT-SPACE

[A panel expands and a drone launches, destroying a Wraith dart. The jumper continues to dodge fire from the other dart ships as it circles back to the Stargate.]

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER

FORD
Try and go invisible again.

SHEPPARD

(wincing)

I tried. It must be damaged. Dial the gate.

[Ford starts to dial.]

INT-ATLANTIS GATE AND CONTROL ROOM

[The Stargate activates.]

GRODIN
Off-world activation!

[Weir runs out of her office.]

WEIR
Raise the shield.

EXT-SPACE

[The jumper continues to dodge Wraith blasts. The Stargate is active, but two darts still guard it. Drones hit one of them as the jumper flies past the Stargate without going through.]

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER

SHEPPARD
Be ready to punch in your code on the next pass.

[Ford fumbles for his G.D.O.]

FORD
What's the range on these things?

INT-ATLANTIS CONTROL ROOM

WEIR
Do we have an identification code?

[McKay races to a laptop.]

MCKAY
Nothing yet.

EXT-SPACE

[Drones shoot out the remaining ship guarding the Stargate.]

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER

SHEPPARD

(to Ford)
Enter your code!
(to everyone else)

Hang on.

INT-ATLANTIS GATE ROOM

MCKAY
I'm reading Lieutenant Ford's IDC.

WEIR
Let them in.

[Grodin lowers the shield.]

EXT-SPACE

[The jumper loops for another pass, dodging fire.]

INT-ATLANTIS CONTROL ROOM

[Some errant blasts come through the Stargate. Expedition guards dive out of the way.]

WEIR
Give them a few more seconds!

EXT-SPACE

[The jumper races towards the Spacegate.]

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER

FORD

(worried)

We're going too fast.

SHEPPARD
I know.

EXT-SPACE

[The jumper's drive pods suddenly retract and it coasts through the Stargate, still at high speed. Three small Wraith dart ships follow.]

INT-ATLANTIS GATE ROOM

[The jumper comes to an abrupt halt just after it clears the Stargate.]

WEIR
Re-activate the shield!

[The shield stops the other ships from passing through. McKay breathes a sigh of relief, and he and Grodin join Weir at the balcony. The jumper floats back up into the bay.]

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER

SHEPPARD
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Atlantis. Please remain seated till the Puddle Jumper's come to a full and complete stop.

[Teyla and Halling exchange relieved smiles.]

EXT-ATLANTIS BALCONY, NIGHT

[Athosians and expedition members mingle together. Several tables have food. All seem happy. Ford follows Sheppard to a quieter part of the balcony.]

FORD
I guess this is home now.

SHEPPARD
I guess so.

FORD

(gesturing to one of the buildings)

I'm thinking of a little place with an ocean view. Out of the way.

[Weir comes up behind them, carrying three mugs.]

WEIR
Major, Lieutenant, I thought the occasion merited opening this...compliments of General O'Neill.

SHEPPARD

(raising a toast)

Cheers.

[They all take a drink. Sheppard sets down his mug afterwards, looking pensive.]

WEIR
You did good, John.

SHEPPARD
I don't know about that.

WEIR
Hey, there was no way you could have saved Colonel Sumner.

SHEPPARD
I have to live with it.

[Weir swallows and nods.]

SHEPPARD
I'm beginning to think you were right. I have made things much worse. I haven't made us many more friends out there.

WEIR
No? Look around you.

[They look back at the crowd. Halling can be seen grinning with Jinto and exchanging the forehead touch of affection common to Athosians. They look out at the ocean. Teyla has been close enough to overhear and turns to Sheppard.]

TEYLA
I agree, Major Sheppard.

[She approaches and puts her hands on his shoulders, leaning forward with a head bow. Hesitantly, Sheppard bows as well, repeating the forehead touch. They lean back.]

TEYLA
You have earned both my friendship and that of my people. With our help, you will make many more friends.

[She grins at Weir and walks away. From amongst the crowd, Beckett and McKay watch her go, McKay gnawing on a chicken wing.]

BECKETT

(sighing)

How come I never make friends like that?

MCKAY
You need to get out more.

BECKETT
We're in another galaxy. How much more out can you get?

MCKAY

(distracted by his chicken)

Is there lemon in this?

[He walks back towards the buffet table. Weir and Sheppard remain at the outer balcony]

WEIR
One more thing, Major, something I'd like you to sleep on. I have a few thoughts on it myself.

SHEPPARD
Thoughts about what?

WEIR
Who the members of your team might be.

SHEPPARD
My team?

WEIR
Well, you are the ranking military officer now, or do you need to be reminded of that? We need to get back out there, do what we came to do.

SHEPPARD
You realize that could get us into all sorts of...trouble, right?

[They exchange wry grins and lean on the banister.]

EXT-ATLANTIS, NIGHT

FADE OUT
