Stargate: Infinity (2002) s01e02 Episode Script

Double Duty

[STARGATE WHlRRlNG ] [TlRES SQUEAL] Whoa.
A dog's dream planet: nothing but trees.
[BUZZlNG ] [YELPS] You didn't tell me we needed to bring bug spray.
Must have slipped my mind.
[GRUNTlNG ] HARRlSON: Whoa.
That alien chrysalis just keeps getting creepier.
l'm gonna open the stargate so we can get back to Earth.
GRlMES: General, l've reprogrammed the G.
D.
O.
codes.
Now when the lris is closed.
.
.
.
.
.
Major Bonner won't be able to open it and let in more Tlak'kahn.
No one can get in unless they know the new codes.
Good, captain.
l don't want any more surprises.
l can believe Gus Bonner could be reckless, even disobey orders.
.
.
but I never thought he'd lie about what he'd done.
And l sure never thought he'd turn traitor.
General, l saw Major Bonner take over the control room.
He had to be the one who opened the lris for the Tlak'kahn.
[BEEPlNG ] [GASPS] GRlMES: Someone's trying to come through.
Something's wrong.
The G.
D.
O.
's working but it won't open the lris.
Duck! -Duck! BONNER: Hit the deck! SEATTLE: Watch out! BONNER: Get down! [THUDS] [lNSECT SQUEALS] Well, whatever it was, it's just a bunch of scattered molecules now.
Good work, Mr.
Grimes.
STACEY: Cadet Bonner to Stargate Command.
Come in, Command.
l'm not making contact either.
The receiver at Command is programmed.
.
.
.
.
.
to screen out radio noise coming through the stargate.
Maybe our signals have accidentally been classified as noise.
Maybe it wasn't an accident.
Maybe somebody doesn't want me to contact Command.
.
.
.
.
.
and explain how l was set up to look like a traitor.
-Can you explain it? -Not yet, but l will.
HARRlSON: So, what do we do now? The Tlak'kahn will try to follow us if they can.
The safe thing to do is to go through the stargate to another world.
Stay one jump ahead of them.
[GROWLS] Probably just as well we aren't staying.
l was here a few months ago with an SG team.
.
.
.
.
.
and the squirrels are pretty dangerous.
Ha! You guys couldn't even handle some squirrels? Aah! [ALL GASPlNG ] [GROWLlNG ] Get out of there, Harrison.
[GROWLlNG ] [HARRlSON GRUNTS] [PANTlNG ] [YELLlNG ] -Harrison! -Harrison! BONNER: Don't worry.
He's safe for now.
-ls that what you call a squirrel? -Well, it seemed funny at the time.
[HARRlSON GRUNTlNG ] [SlGHS] BONNER: Climbers store food for a while.
Like Harrison? l'm getting them back, Harrison and that blasted cocoon.
[GRUNTlNG ] [SlGHS] l guess he's saving me for dessert.
Whoa! [YELLlNG ] [YELLlNG ] [BONNER GRUNTS] Good thing l could tell you from the rest of the nuts.
[GROWLS] [BOTH SHOUTlNG ] -Can't get control.
HARRlSON: Whoa! [BOTH GRUNTlNG ] Uh, lucky l landed on something soft.
[THORN CHATTERlNG ] Uh, sorry.
[ALL CHATTERlNG ] Who are these guys? We call them the Thorn.
This is the village we contacted.
.
.
.
.
.
when l was here before with my SG team.
[CRYlNG ] lt's okay, little guy.
You're safe now.
Gee, l-- l hope l didn't hurt him when l crashed.
[ALL CHATTERlNG ] My Thorn's a little rusty but l think the kid was already sick.
EC'CO: Oh, no.
HARRlSON: Huh? The chrysalis looks undamaged.
Yeah, l'm okay too.
Thanks for asking.
The Thorn say the whole village is sick, sick bad.
That's a shame.
Maybe l could get the first-aid kit and-- You don't understand.
lt started right after l was here.
All these people could die and it's probably my fault.
EC'CO: Major Bonner, it has to be a coincidence your team was here.
All team members are screened for infectious disease before a mission.
They wouldn't let you through the stargate.
l came down with a cold right after that mission.
What about before the mission? Did you show any symptoms? Well, l felt kind of achy.
And you didn't report it? l'm old.
l get achy.
[SlGHS] l thought it was just sore muscles from working out.
[CHlLD CRlES] [CHUCKLES] This is Nephestis to Tlak'kahn 'patan.
Come in, Ma'patan.
I have a message for Da 'kyll.
As soon as our stargate is functional.
.
.
.
.
.
set it to follow the humans.
Commander Da'kyll, we've had a message from the spy, Nephestis.
He has blocked any communications.
.
.
.
.
.
with the humans who escaped with the Ancient.
They cannot return to Earth.
Excellent.
Send him my commendation.
He wants one thing.
-He makes demands of me? -A request only.
Gus Bonner may come to suspect.
.
.
.
.
.
how he was made to look like a traitor.
To protect himself, Nephestis wants Bonner eliminated.
ls that all? Tell him for me, Pahk'kal, it will be done.
[CHlLD WHlMPERS] [BONNER SlGHS] l'm sorry.
The Tlak'kahn could show up any minute.
We have to take the chrysalis through the stargate to some place safe.
l'm not deserting the Thorn.
You go.
Ec'co can open the stargate.
You've been to other worlds.
We haven't.
We need you to pick a destination.
.
.
.
.
.
and make sure we get there with the chrysalis.
l've got a job to do here.
Your duty is to Stargate Command.
l thought l was relieved of that duty.
We must protect the chrysalis.
The survival of all free planets.
.
.
.
.
.
including my mother's, could depend on it.
lf it is an Ancient and if the Tlak'kahn get their hands on it-- Then you take it through the stargate.
The Thorn are dying and smart money says it's my fault.
l have to do what l can to help them.
l live with my choices, cadet.
lt's called taking responsibility.
Maybe you don't care if the Tlak'kahn get their hands on the Ancient.
You haven't explained what happened back at Stargate Command.
.
.
.
.
.
how the Tlak'kahn got through the stargate defenses.
l don't know how they got through.
.
.
.
.
.
but l do know what l've gotta do now.
We're wasting time.
l'm taking the Rat.
l'm staying.
When l was a girl on the reservation.
.
.
.
.
.
l hung out with an old healer.
Maybe l learned something.
What about you two? Are you staying too? My mother fled her planet because of Tlak'kahn attacks.
We have to protect the chrysalis.
Oh, man, l thought when l joined the Air Force.
.
.
.
.
.
l wouldn't have to think anymore.
l'd just have to follow orders.
[SlGHS] Um, okay.
l vote for cocoon duty.
lt'll take a moment to set the stargate.
[BEEPlNG ] [STACEY GASPS] HARRlSON: Hey, the chrysalis of the Ancient, it's changing again.
[CRACKlNG ] lt's hatching.
EC'CO: Tlak'kahn.
[GRUNTS] [SHOUTS THEN MOANS] Ec'co! [GROANlNG ] Stacey! [SHOUTlNG ] [TLAK'KAHN SNARLlNG ] Cease firing.
Once you Ancients ruled the universe.
.
.
.
.
.
but now you are mine.
Revive them.
They will live long enough to tell me where to find Gus Bonner.
Cease firing.
Once you Ancients ruled the universe.
.
.
.
.
.
but now you are mine.
Revive them.
They will live long enough to tell me where to find Gus Bonner.
[COMMUNlCATOR BEEPS] Bonner.
Go ahead.
HARRlSON: The Tlak'kahn have come through the stargate.
They've got Stacey and Ec'co and the chrysalis.
Harrison, meet me near the squirrel's tree.
-And try not to act like a nut.
-l'm coming with you.
[MOANS] Something's happening to the chrysalis.
l can feel it.
[GRUNTlNG ] [TLAK'KAHN GASPS] [GASPS THEN HlSSlNG ] [STACEY GRUNTlNG ] [TLAK'KAHN GRUNTlNG ] STACEY: Run! BOTH: Huh?! Get on! [TlRES SQUEALlNG ] [SHOUTS] Gone! How do we find the humans and the Ancient now? There is always a way, if you know your enemy.
BONNER: lf the Tlak'kahn have the creature-- Then they're gone, back through the stargate.
There's nothing we can do.
DA'KYLL: This is Commander Da'kyll of the Tlak'kahn Empire.
The village is in our control.
Unless Gus Bonner and the Ancient are surrendered to me.
.
.
.
.
.
the village and everyone in it will be destroyed.
lf you want the Thorn to live, surrender Bonner and the Ancient.
Do you really expect them to meet your demands, commander? l've studied these humans.
They are weak and sentimental.
They actually believe self-sacrifice is noble.
Looks like l'll get a chance to save the Thorn after all.
You can't just give yourself up.
And we don't have the Ancient to give them.
HARRlSON: Even if we could give them everything.
.
.
-.
.
.
they might still destroy the village.
-We know they will.
.
.
.
.
.
if l don't do something.
Get these guys home again.
Maybe it's all a trick.
Maybe he really is helping the Tlak'kahn.
You don't really believe that.
Are we just gonna let him walk in there all alone? STACEY: Ohh.
[BEEPS] l'm giving myself up, Da'kyll, or whatever your name is.
Leave the Thorn alone.
Where is the Ancient? Whatever hatched out of that chrysalis is gone.
.
.
.
.
.
in the forest somewhere.
-We don't have it.
-Then l will destroy the Thorn.
Actually, l was planning to anyway, even if you gave me the Ancient.
[GASPS] [CHlLD WHlMPERS] You'll be doing them a favor.
They've all got some kind of plague.
Then let them suffer.
You, on the other hand.
.
.
.
.
.
l will eliminate immediately.
[DA'KYLL YELLlNG ] Pahk'kal, your weapon! [HlSSlNG ] DA'KYLL: Huh? [SCREAMS] [ALL GRUNT] [BONNER GASPS] [ALL SHOUTlNG ] [GRUNTS] [SCREAMS] Stop! You fools! That's the Ancient.
BONNER: Hyah! [TLAK'KAHN SHOUTlNG ] [TLAK'KAHN SHOUTlNG ] Commander, we must go.
Warriors, retreat! DA'KYLL: ln here.
This must be some kind of food storehouse.
.
.
.
.
.
for the Thorn.
BOTH: Huh? -No! -No! [SNARLS] STACEY: l don't understand it.
Why didn't the Tlak'kahn put up more of a fight? Hold your fire.
lt's the Ancient or whatever she is.
She looks more like my old math teacher in high school.
Ha, we called her the Dragon Lady.
Draga? Uh, my math teacher had longer fingernails.
-Careful, Seattle.
-She won't hurt me.
She wants to know something.
-Know what? -Everything.
[STACEY GASPS] [SEATTLE GASPS] Now l know, certain.
You must help make right.
You connected.
Responsible.
You good.
Tlak'kahn not connected.
Tlak'kahn bad.
What do we call you? What is your name? l am born.
Others give me a name.
The Dragon Lady was named Ms.
Niederhoff.
Draga? Draga.
[DRAGA GASPS] [THORN CHATTERS] SEATTLE: l'm sorry, major.
l don't know what else to do.
The healer taught me.
.
.
.
.
.
that sometimes there's nothing you can do.
[MOANlNG ] [BOTH CHATTERlNG ] Can you heal all the Thorn who are sick? l can.
Sometimes there is something you can do.
BONNER: You'll have to move deeper into the forest.
.
.
.
.
.
so the Tlak'kahn can't find you again.
l don't know what happened to their commander.
He lives.
Draga, are you an Ancient? Did your people build the stargates? l don't know the stargates.
l don't know other worlds.
All l can do is follow.
Now l follow you.
HARRlSON: Where are we going? -Somewhere.
