1 EXT. DESTINY - ORBIT - PX3-973
A GIANT Ancient ship slowly moves in orbit. It’s graceful in
its own way, with a smooth sweeping style. We hold on this
for a moment, then
2 EXT. PX3-973 - STARGATE - DAY
CLOSE on the STARGATE as it KAWOOSHES.
PULL OUT, TO SEE:
SG-12 standing there. SG-12 consists of COLONEL JOHN CROSS,
MAJOR KRIS MATHEWS, DR. JANET SMITH, DR. CAROL JACKSON, and
CAPTAIN KIRAN KARLA. They step down off the platform and
walk up to the greeting party, SG-15, LEUITENANT COLONEL
JEREMY FREDRICSON, MAJOR JENNIFER EMERSON, LIEUTENANT DAVID
COOPER, and LIEUTENANT CAROLINE WARNER. (This occurs under
the following dialog)
Text at the bottom of the screen:
Rollin’ out the welcome, eh’
Yep, we expect to be relieved.
Well, don’t get your hopes up, our
shift doesn’t start for another
Speaking of that, I need to tell
SG-19 that you’re here.

They went ahead with Dr. Hancock.
She taps her earpeice. (NOTE: Everyone uses Atlantis-style
Major Emerson to SG-19.
The voice we hear is that of MAJOR ERIC MOORE.
Major Moore here. What’s up, Jen?
SG-12 is here, can you beam us up?
Sure. Stand by.
A moment later SG-12 and Maj. Emerson are beamed away.
3 INT. DESTINY - BRIDGE
The bridge is vast, stretching the entire front of the ship,
it’s basically a long strip of control panels, there’s no
clear cut captain’s chair, but there are several seats
arrayed near the bank of windows. All the surfaces(minus the
windows) are covered in a gray that is reminiscent of the
SGA Episode "Aurora". Out the windows you can see the planet
below. It’s awe inspiring, it makes you want to be
completely silent. It is into this setting that SG-12 and
Maj. Emerson are beamed into. SG-12 scatters to look out the
windows. Kaitlyn walks over to join SG-19, and we get our
first look at the other team. There is, of course, MAJOR
ERIC MOORE, CAPTAIN ELIZABETH JOHNSON, CAPTAIN SHELBY
PORTER, and DR. SAM PARK. Beat.
THE CAMERA LEAVES THEM AND MOVES OVER TO THE NEAREST SG-12
Carol is looking out the window, proverbially mushing her
face against the glass.
Oh, I wish you could see this...
THE CAMERA MOVES FARTHER ALONG, COMING UP AT JANET:
Janet is about ten feet away from the window, taking it all
(under her breath)
ANOTHER CAMERA MOVE, THIS TIME TO KRIS:
Kris has eased herself into one of the chairs and is staring
at the stars, her face expressionless.
CAMERA MOVE, JOHN:
John is staring out the window, lost in thought, and a
single tear slips out of his eye. He quickly wipes it away
before anyone notices.
CAMERA MOVE, KARLA:
Karla is staring out the window, lost, mumbling in her

CUT BACK TO:
SG-19 and Major Emerson.
Where’s Doctor Hancock?
She said she was going to check out
a system that had been acting up.
She is cut off as a voice comes over the radio
Major! The Hyperdrive just
initiated its pre-flight sequence!
Well, shut it down!
You don’t understand, IHe
is cut off as a whooshing sound is heard. There is dead
silence for a beat, then the sound of the hyperdrive coming
online is heard reverberating through the ship.
WE CUT TO:
4 EXT. SPACE - DESTINY
The ship turns, and engages hyperdrive.
5 INT. DESTINY - BRIDGE
The ship is in hyperspace. SG-12 gets up and hurries back to
SG-19 and Major Emerson. (NOTE: From now on, she will be
considered a member of SG-19)
We’re in hyperspace.
Yes, I know that, what I want to
know, is, why? We are not supposed
to take the ship into hyperspace,
and besides, from the reports I
read, we don’t even know how to.
Where’s Dr. Hancock?
He’s...I don’t know where he it.
Well, call him.
We can’t. He’s not responding. He
told us that the hyperdrive was
powering up, and then...he was cut

Kiran and Carol nod. John and them turn around.

back to Destiny, to check up on the
Tracious’s smile fades, turning into a hard frown.
I’m afraid I can’t do that.
The conference room fades to a slightly hazy white expanse.
Tracious grins, and fade away into an obviously Alien being,
wearing an unusual uniform.
(con’t, his voice is changed)
You see, you never left your ship.
Unfortunately, now we’ll have to
work a little harder to find what
15 INT. DESTINY - GROUP MIND - WHITE EXPANSE
The team members are on their knees, arranged in a circle,
facing outwards. There are more aliens, one for every two
members of each team. (Around fifteen people, SG-19 is here)

pain receptors, but not you memory.

He looks at Janet for a moment, and she crumples over.
She tries to get up, but is firmly planted in the ground.
After a beat, Janet takes a shaky breath, but stays on the

We told you everything! I swear!
Then why is he hiding something?
He points a finger at John, who gazes with steely eyes

The aliens get a glazed look in their eyes, then vanish.
Suddenly our teams are free to move, but they are still in
the white expanse.
16 INT. DESTINY - BRIDGE
The team members are in various positions passed out on the
floor. Aliens man the consoles. Out the window we can see
the planet we saw earlier, except the Ancient warships are
actually alien ships, and the planet has no cities on it.
The Tracious/Alien stands in front of the windows, hands
behind his back, a classic commander pose. Another alien
comes up behind him. Its the alien version of Trevan.
Sir, we have control of the ship.
Sir, what are we going to the with
We shall keep the female with the
gene, and kill the rest.
Trevan looks a little unhappy.
I had hoped that we might keep them
You’re not getting attached to
these lower forms, are you?
No, no. I just think we could study
them. They were remarkably rapid in
discovering our deception.
No. We were remarkably lax, after
all these years with lower life
forms, we’ve grown complacent. But
no more! We’ve spent so many years
searching for the one, and now we
have it within our grasp.
(this discussion is over)
Carry out my orders.
He gives a small bow and turns and walks away. Tracious
looks after him thoughtfully.
17 INT. DESTINY - GROUP MIND - WHITE EXPANSE
Our teams are up and walking about, Carol is sitting next to
Janet, who looks tired but is also sitting up. John is not
looking at Janet. Carol gets up and goes to John.
It’s not her fault.
Tell that to anyone who might die
by those weapons!
Oh quit it. Are you so arrogant and
stuck in your ways that you can’t
even forgive her?
She never should have been told!
She was the perfect person! It
couldn’t have been me, or Kris, or
And quit trying to change the
I could forgive her. And I do. But
you know as well as I that if I’m
nice, and let her think that its
okay to do this, she’ll never ever
learn from it.
(attempting to remain calm)
She is not a child! You think
she’ll ever forget the time when
she told the bad guys exactly what
they wanted to know?
Carol looks a little taken aback. She goes back to Janet.
John looks after her for a moment, then turns back to
staring into the white.
All of a sudden Cervalias is standing next to them. The
military people move as to raise their weapons, but, of
course, they don’t have any. Beat.
(matter of fact)
You are all scheduled for execution
when we reach our destination,
except for the one with the Ancient
Everyone looks at Kris.
Why is everyone looking at me?
You’re not going to die. That means
they want you. That means we have

Why are you telling us this?
Trevan turns to him.
I do not wish you allto be killed.
Then help us.
I have already been here too long.
And just like he was there, he’s gone.
Well, that was helpful.
Does anyone else hear that?
In the background there should be the sound like voices, but
very faint, so faint in fact, you shouldn’t really be able
to hear it. Carol stands up.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist
I’m not a rocket scientist.
(trying to think)
Porter! Shut up.
Shelby quiets down, but glares at Carol, who returns the
glare. The voices gradually grow louder, but not so rapidly
as to notice it. Kris points off-screen.
The camera pans around and we see, instead of the pure hazy
white that is everywhere else, a part of it has turned a
murky grayish color that fades into white. Every one turns
to look at it.
(dawning on him)
We’re waking up.
Not like any time I’ve woken up.
Ah, but have you ever woken up from
an induced sleep?
Carol is taken aback, she didn’t know this.
A telepathically induced sleep?
How do you know its telepathically
induced? It’s not like any other
telepathically induced sleep I’ve
heard about or been in.
Carol didn’t know this either.
Well, I don’t think we’ve ever come
across these particular aliens,
"We don’t know anything about
them." I’ve heard that before.
What exactly do you not like about
(he’s getting mad)
Will everyone just shut up?!!!
Now Carol has two angry capitans glaring at her. She sighs
and turns her back on them, and sits back down next to
Janet, who is staring off into space, ignoring them.
18 INT. DESTINY - BRIDGE
CLOSE on Carol’s face. Her eye twitches, but it goes
19 INT. DESTINY - GROUP MIND - WHITE EXPANSE
The white expanse is no longer white, but completely gray
colored.(It could be a picture of the ceiling of Destiny
that has been edited to look murky/swirled.) Carol is the
only one standing in it now. She turns around, the rest of
the team is gone, and we get the feeling that they just
left, by the surprise that Carol has. Beat. All of a sudden
the gray clears, and sharpens, showing the ceiling of
Destiny. In a smooth camera move, we go from seeing the
ceiling, to zooming out, then turning around and looking
down at Carol as her eyes flicker open.
20 INT. DESTINY - BRIDGE
CLOSE on Carol’s face. Her eyes are slited so she can see,
but the aliens can’t tell she’s awake. We hear O.S. voices.
We’re ready to jump, sir.
We hear the sound of the hyperdrive powering up. (From scene
21 INT. CAROL’S POV - DESTINY
We see (through half closed eyes)the ship jumping to hyper
space, and we see that all the aliens have their back to
22 INT. DESTINY - BRIDGE
In an instant, Carol has sprung up, and attacked the Aliens
closest to her. We see that the others are awake, and have
picked their own fights, but they are outnumbered 10(us) to
16(them). (Janet is still on the floor.) Park holds his own
for a little while, but is shot. Porter and Jackson hold
their own for a little longer than Park, but they go out
too. The scales seem to tip in the aliens favor, but then,
Cross manages to disarm one, and shoots him. The gun emits a
(shock)wave that hits the Alien and knocks him down.(looking
dead)He then turns the gun on other Aliens, until the rest
of the good guys manage to get their counterpart’s guns, and
aim them at the Aliens,(there are about 9 Aliens still
standing, the rest are on the ground.)Among the aliens
standing is Tracious. Cervalias is nowhere to be found.
Tracious looks mad. Janet has managed to scramble up and
holds a weapon on the Aliens too. All of a sudden, on the
view screen, the ship enters the tear, and drops out of
hyperspace. Everyone turns to look out the window at the
assortment of Ancient ships, all of them Destiny class.
23 EXT. SPACE - DESTINYS
There are over a dozen different Destinys arrayed, plus
several unidentifiable ships. Our Destiny slowly maneuvers
into them, and is lost amongst the look alikes.
24 INT. DESTINY - BRIDGE
While our team stares awe struck out the window, the aliens
all surreptitiously pull things out of their pockets and
press them. Our team turns back at the sound, but they are
too late to stop them from beaming out, along with the
unconscious Aliens. Our team is left with their weapons.
They look around in shock. Then, as if all of them are
controlled by a single mind, Janet and Karla rush over to
Park, Porter and Johnson, while Carol and Jennifer rush
over to the consoles. John, Eric and Kris gather around the
There’s got to be over a dozen
ships out there!
Carol slams her hand against the console, mad.
They put a password on the computer
Can you go around it?
Yeah, probably, but it’ll take a
Everyone turns to look where he is pointing, out the window,
where we can see a Destiny that is bristling with weapons,
and they look to be powering up.
(grimly, to Carol)
Take all the time you need.
Suddenly the ship rocks as we are hit, throwing everyone but
Carol and Kaitlyn to the ground(they were holding on to the
25 EXT. SPACE - DESTINYS
Slowly but surely, all the Destinys begin to fire upon our
Destiny, which is taking a beating, even though it’s shield
is holding, it looks to fail soon.
26 INT. DESTINY - BRIDGE
The wounded are sill on the ground with Janet and Kiran next
to them, the others are at he console, hanging on for dear
life as the ship rocks violently. Near the door, something
sparks, and a panel on the console next to the one our group
is at sprays sparks and shorts out. Carol flinches away from
it, but keeps her eyes glued to the screen and her hands
firmly working to get around the block.
Sorry, I’m busy right now, please
call back later!
Carol! This isn’t the time!
I’m working on it!
Ship shakes again. More sparks.
Shields are at 15%! We now have
over half the ships firing on us,
and the others are joining in.
From now on, the ship shakes constantly. Sparks fly from
several places, and the people at the console have to duck
to avoid them.
Shields at 7%!
We have impulse!
Get us outta here!
27 EXT. SPACE - DESTINYS
Our ship is getting pummeled. All the other ships but one or
two are firing on it. Our ship’s shields flicker. All of a
sudden, our Destiny’s impulse engines start up, and take her
away from the fight. The other ships begin to follow.
28 INT. DESTINY - BRIDGE
Same as before.
Its not helping! Shields are down
In a minute I’ll have hyperdrive!
In a minute?! We don’t have a
(same time as John)
We don’t have a minute!
Carol takes a moment to look up and glares at them. Beat as
the ship rocks and sparks.
That’s it, we have no shields!
29 EXT. SPACE - DESTINYS
Our ship is leading the others in a race, but they are still
firing on our Destiny. Her shields fritz and go out, leaving
her unprotected. Shots start to hit her, and they cause
30 INT. DESTINY - BRIDGE
Same as before, but the ship rocks a lot harder.
(beat, reading the console,
We have emergency shields on in
There’s on bit of decent news.
There! We have hyperdrive! Go!
Jennifer brings her hand down on the control. On the window
we see the window open.
31 EXT. SPACE - DESTINYS
Our ship turns tail and quickly jumps into hyperspace. The
other ships slowly stop firing.
32 INT. DESTINY - BRIDGE
Out the window we can see normal space. The shaking has
stopped, and only one or two things continue to spark
weakly. Everyone is where they were before. Everyone looks
tired and relieved.
Where are we?
Carol checks the console. She smiles slightly in relief
In the middle of nowhere. There’s a
large debris field several hundred
million kilometers out, but that’s
Janet walks up, looking concerned.
Does this ship have an infirmary?
Well, the scientists never looked
for one, but I guess there must be
Well, they need to pay it a little
visit. I don’t even know what’s
wrong with them, they could be
going haywire upstairs, and I
wouldn’t even know.
We could ask the computer.
Everyone looks at her. She inputs something on the console
in front of her. Beat, the she inputs something else. Under
this, John mouths the words "What?" to Jennifer, but she
shrugs and shakes her head. Everyone turns to look as a
schematic of the ship comes up on the window/screen. Carol
walks up to it and actually touches it. It zooms in on them,
it shows the bridge and the ten life signs, three of which
are slightly dimmed. She touches it again in the corner, and
it zooms out a little bit. She presses it again and it zooms
out more. She presses the bridge and and quickly presses
another room. The schematic rotates and shows it on a 3-d
scale, with a highlighted path leading from the bridge to
the other room. Janet smiles and takes a step back.
That’s how you get to the
Everyone stares at her.
What? Its all very similar to the
newer systems in Atlantis.

breaks the uncomfortable silence.

All the people assigned nod and move to their respective
33 INT. DESTINY - INFIRMARY
The infirmary looks very similar to the Atlantis Infirmary,
but the colors are all sliver, and everything looks smooth.
It’s also a bit larger, and is two large rooms connected by
a doorway. It looks just like a full, working infirmary, as
if the workers just up and left, most things are in their
proper place, with only a few things thrown around.
Elizabeth, Shelby, and Sam are all laying on beds with
Ancient looking things(small discs) attached to their heads.
Think brain wave monitors. Janet is looking at a screen that
is hooked up to the things attached to their heads. Carol is
looking curiously over her shoulder, but from the look her
face, she is totally confused. John is moving around at the
room(s), attempting to clean it up. (Eric, Kris, and
Jennifer are nowhere to be seen.)
He stops his pacing and goes over to her.
Well, I can say for certain that
they won’t die. I pretty sure, at
least. I don’t think the weapon was
designed with us in mind. It seems
to have been created to kill a much
more mentally sensitive race. We,
however, have a comparatively tough
mind, and all it seems to have done
is incapacitate them. They should
wake from their comma in anywhere
from six hours to two days.
John gives a sigh of relief. He taps his radio.
Cross to Moore.
Your team will make it. The doctor
says they should come out of it in
around a day or so.
Thank you, sir. I was just about to
call you, though. We’re at the
34 INT. DESTINY - CORRIDOR/BREACH
Its a long hallway, with an entire side open to space. There
is a force field shaped just like the corridor that is gone,
the edges blasted away. But the shock is, as we watch, the
ship itself is rebuilding. (Those of us who have seen a
Replicator fix itself will recognize this.)
And sir, its rebuilding.
35 INT. DESTINY - INFIRMARY
It’s rebuilding itself. It looks
like its growing and sealing itself
John looks a little pale.
Get away from there, head back here
36 INT. DESTINY - CORRIDOR/BREACH
Eric’s eyes widen and he turns and runs back down the
corridor, and enters a transporter. Kris and Jennifer have
heard everything and followed him.

Everyone is gathered around a computer. John is in

The corridor-long-hole is slowly closing, and as we watch,
it seals completely.
39 INT. DESTINY - SLEEPER ROOM
Its a HUGE room, so long you can’t really see the end, and
the sides are lined with the sleeper pod seen in the SGA
episode ’Aroura’. Eric and Jennifer are here near the
entrance and they look around in awe. They shine their
40 INT. DESTINY - HOLOGRAPHIC INTERFACE ROOM
Its a large room, just like the Atlantis version, except for
the fact that everything is the same gray. The lights are
off here too. Kris and Kiran walk in and shine their flash
lights around. As Kris steps closer to the pedestal, the
rooms lights come on, and the hologram appears(not the same
one from Atlantis)
Please state your request.
Kris turns and grins at Kiran.
41 INT. DESTINY - ENGINE ROOM
It is also a large room, with a window at the end, and
through it we can see the hyperdrive plus jump drive. Carol
and John walk in. Carol looks around excitedly.
42 INT. DESTINY - CONFERENCE ROOM
It’s a medium sized room, with a large circular table and
chairs around it. Everyone (minus Janet and the two
patients) is there. We come in on them in mid explanation.
The hologram also explained that
the ship was designed to carry the
population of a planet to a safer
home. He said that the ship was
designed to scout planets in
different universes and timelines,
record that data, and then, when it
reached a planet that had the
correct parameters, it would wake
the population up from stasis and
help them colonize it.
But the room we saw, big as it was,
would not hold the entire
population of a
several cities, but not a planet.
Well, Destiny was supposed to be
the first ship in its class, but
the idea was abandoned as the war
with the Wraith exploded and the
ship proved unreliable and
extremely difficult to control.
So we’re stuck on an out of control
ship that moves through alternate
So, how do we get back home?
Well, sir, this ship was built for

It was build to be a one way trip.
It doesn’t have reverse.
Dramatic music builds as we realize we have no way home.
43 EXT. SPACE - DESTINY
The ship is moving on impulse towards a distant planet.
44 INT. DESTINY - MESS HALL
A large room with several tables and chairs around them.
There is a large bank of windows on one side, and the other
side has several consoles and several of what looks like
what Sam engineered in the SG-1 Episode ’Unending’. Jennifer
is sitting at a table near the window, looking unhappily at
the bowl in front of her, full of a yellow looking mush.
Eric enters, goes over to the consoles, and gets a cup of
water. He walks over to Jennifer and sits down a the table
I’m glad they figured out how to
use that thing, cause I was
starting to wonder if we were going
to have to go without any food.

You try it.
She slides the bowl over to him and he takes the spoon and
tastes it. He makes a face and pushes it back.
Okay..maybe it is that bad..
Jennifer half smiles.
45 INT. DESTINY - JOHN’S QUARTERS
A good sized room with a bed, chair, desk, and console on
it, and a closed door that (presumably) leads to the bath
room. John is standing in the middle of the room, looking
around. The door chimes (the door and opener look just like
the Atlantis ones) and he goes over and opens it. Carol is
on the other side. She smiles.
How’re you settling in?
He moves out of the way and walks back into the room. She
follows him in.
I’m not sure how to.
Well, I went down to the engine
room and got the computer to make a
few reminders of home, and got some

Anyway, I actually stopped by to
