"We might have a way back to the future for all of the kids," Sam Carter told General Hammond.
"What is it?" he asked.
"We need to send for the Asguard. We'll need them to help us fight off the Goa'uld. Maybe they can contact the Asguard of the future? They're basically our only hope for beating the Goa'uld in the future. The gate was at a certain frequency when the children came through, so we'll need to duplicate all the conditions that got them here."
"Will that be possible?"
"I believe so."
"Start working on it Major. And Major," the general stopped her.
"Try working with Jessica would you please? Or even Cassandra?"
"Thank you. Get back to me on the progress of the project."
"Do you think that they thought to use us or they just thought that they might as well let us feel useful?" Jessica asked Cassie after hearing that they were going to help Major Carter.
"I'm not sure. All I know is that we can help, and you never know what people think."
"I hope they really want us to help them."
"Yeah me too. I miss doing stuff like the science experiments I get to do back home."
"Yeah I know what you mean."
"Don't worry Jessie, everything's going to be fine."
This is so weird. It's like we're home, but we're not. Everything is like completely turned upside down. I can't believe that my dad has the symbol of Apohias on his forehead! I never knew that! He hasn't even met mom let alone fallen in love with her. He's so rigid. Well, I guess mom must have changed him alot! I mean alot! I would have never guessed that dad was ever so Jaffa Guard-like. Well I know he was Apohias' first prime for awhile, but I never guessed he was actually so...still? I don't know how to describe it. I can tell that Isabelle thinks it's weird too so at least it's not just me. It's like everyone's in total shock that they actually get married and have kids, or maybe it's because they all marry each other and go against regs. It's not like General Hammond is mean, he seems to only want to best, and that's probably why he didn't care if they got married. He just wanted them to be happy. Everyone deserves to be happy, at least that's what mom always says. I hope I see her again!
"You wanted to see us?" Cassandra asked Major Carter.
"Yes, the general suggested that you two might be helpful on figuaring what happened to trigger the gate to send you into the past."
"I told you!" Jessica told Cassie.
"Jessica, we can help."
"Do you want to stay here forever?" Cassie asked her.
"Sort of, but I know what you mean." Jessica went up to the blank chalkboard and began to write down all the things they did before going through the gate and landing in the past.
"You had a GDO?" Carter asked.
"Yes, the twins were playing with it. They found it and pushed in the code."
"Both. Michael, Madison, Matt, and Miranda."
"How did they get the code?"
"It was on the GDO. It's kinda ancient."
"I see," she said looking at what was on the board.
"I don't think that the GDO did it," Jessica told her.
"No, I don't either, but I was wondering about the destination?"
"It was randomly picked next team site to checkout," Cassandra told her.
"Can I have the address?"
"Yeah," Jessica wrote them on the board.
"We'll send a MALP through to check it out.
It seems that there are so few of us who have to still write in here. It feels like we're lost and we can't get home, well actually that's what it is. I miss everything! I know that it's good that we're all safe and I have my brothers, but it just seems like we're missing something. I mean what if we don't get home? I really want to go home, and see mom and dad. I miss mom's cooking, she makes the best brownies and cookies. I miss my room, the yellow walls and my bed with my might blue cloud pillows. It's seems so silly that that's what I would miss, but it's what made this place home. I can't believe that they actually painted these walls gray. I mean gray! It's so boring and depressing. No wonder people in the military go crazy after awhile, there's so much depressing gray paint! I hope I get to sleep in my own bed, in my own room, in my own time again. Soon.
"The MALP is picking up intense radiation, Major Carter," the technition told her.
"That could be it."
"It's probable," Cassandra said.
"It's possible, and it might be what got us here, but the radiation could be higher in the future. Do we know what the radiation is from?" Jessica asked.
"There's four suns and some kind of singularity..."
"What kind of singularity?" Carter asked.
"A quantum singularity," Jessica told them.
"It could be enough to send us back in time, but will it be enough to send us forward?" Cassandra questioned.
"I don't know." Carter looked unsure as she ordered the MALP back through the gate.
Alex seems so weird around dad. I knew that dad was like this really cool solider, but I never dreamed that he was a Jaffa Guard turned good. Good Jaffa seemed like they were only a myth. All the Jaffa I have met have pretty much wanted to kill us not help us. I guess I've always known that dad was a Jaffa, but it never occurred to me this much. Maybe it's because he has the seal of Apohias and it's a reminder that he was a Jaffa Guard. I've just always thought of the Jaffa as our enemies, but I never thought of my dad as a Jaffa even though he is one. It's weird how you know that someone is different, but you just don't really think of them as that different person you just think of them as your friend, brother, or even father. It seems that in this past it just makes me and I think everyone else that things were different 15 years back from we're used to. It's funny what sticks out the most to me is people and not the walls and the SGC complex itself since I've lived here all my life and it just hit me of how really different it is here. Maybe the difference is for the better at the moment.
"I don't think this is going to work general," Major Carter reported.
"I see. What are your opinions?" General Hammond asked Jessica and Cassandra who did not realize he was talking to them. "Miss Jackson? Miss O'Neill? I may not be the commander of the SGC in your realitity, but here I still give the orders."
"Sorry sir I didn't realize you were talking to me," Cassie apoligized. "I agree with Sam."
"I see. Miss O'Neill?"
"What?" General Hammond, Major Carter, and Cassie said in unison.
"I disagree. The Asguard, have you contacted them?"
"Yes, but they haven't gotten back to us," Carter told her.
"What if we set off a charge that would set the radiation of the planet high enough?" Jessica asked.
"We would need a very big bomb," Carter told her.
"Extremely big, Jess," Cassie told her.
"Too big for our expenses I'm sure. If the NID get ahold of what we're doing they'll want all twenty-one of you," Hammond told them.
"Maybe the Tok'ra can help in the bomb department?" Cassandra asked.
"Major contact the Tok'ra."
It's cool that I get to see my namesake, being Jack O'Neill, in his legendary days. Now or in the future he's more of a family man my dad says ever since Matt and Miranda were born. He always says that I'll be just like that when I have kids of my own. You know I never realized how much more our parents worked before they had kids. Parents totally cut there work when they have kids. I guess our parents didn't realize until they cut their work loads and liked the free time that they really didn't need to do it. Maybe it's because our parents are such important figuares that we're so smart. Even Noel, Doctor Frasier said that her development is at Jessica's level when she was three, too. So, that probably means we've got another super genius scientist in our presence. It's sort of scary of how smart we all are and how much like our parents we are. I guess we become our parents whether we want to or not.
"So that's the Tok'ra radiation bomb?" Jack O'Neill asked Carter.
"I expected it to be..." Jack's voice trailed off.
"Bigger," Christopher O'Neill finished his sentance.
"Everything that creates massive destruction always is much smaller than you imagine," Chris told him.
"So will it work?" Daniel asked Carter.
"Maybe.." Carter told them.
"Possibly," Cassie said.
"Probably," Isabelle joined in.
"Definately!" Jessica told them.
"Someone's optomistic!" Jack O'Neill pointed out.
"Always, well mostly," Jessie told him.
"Let's send it through," Hammond told them. The MALP with the bomb moved up the ramp and through the active stargate event horizon.
"The Asguard are leaving a message, sir."
"They're leaving a message?" Jack O'Neill questioned. "What do we have a SGC answering service now?"
"Well, what have the Asguard have to say this time?"
"They'll have a future Asguard armada waiting for the kids by the time they get back through their stargate."
"Oww that's awful nice of them."
"They said it was for you and SG-1 that they were doing it, sir."
"That's nice. I guess SG-1 is the Asguard's favorite team."
"So, the Asguard are going to save the future basically?" O'Neill asked.
"Then why didn't you say that in the first place?"
"Umm...I don't know, sir."
"Next time just get to the point, okay?"
I guess I'm the last one to write in Jessie's journal. This might be the last day that we're here, in our parents' past and it's sort of strange thinking that we might be going home. Back to the world that we were so used to, back to where our parents are hopefully safe in hiding from the Goa'uld and the Jaffa. I hope that my parents are alright and that I get to see them soon. It's strange how different things were in the past compared with what I consider the present.
"Let's hope that this works," Jack O'Neill said.
"Okay kids do exactly what you did before," Hammond ordered
"Yes, sir," Jessica said saluting him and he saluted back. "Matt, Miranda, Michael, and Madison let's get the GDO and get down to the gate. "Wait where's the manual dialing device?"
"The dial home device?" Sam asked.
"We don't have one."
"Okay. Isabelle can you hook the laptop to the main dialing computer?" Jessica asked.
"Good. Do it."
"I'll help you," Sam Carter told Isabelle.
"Thanks," Carter and Isabelle O'Rion made their way up to the control room and set up the interface with the laptop and main computer. Soon, they signalled that they were ready and Isabelle dialed up the planet Jessica had that had sent them into the past.
"Goodbye!" Christopher O'Neill yelled waving at his parents or at least who would be his parents and ran through the stargate after the twins had pushed in the code into the GDO. Immediately the rest of the kids ran through with Jessica, Matt, Miranda, Michael, Madison, and Noel taking up the back of the group. Jessica stopped right before the event horizon to make sure everyone went through, but suddenlly the shimmering blue water-like event horizon of the stargate disapeared leaving Jessica O'Neill and Noel Hammond in the past.
This is crazy! I'm stuck in my parents' past! Everyone's written in this journal of mine, so I guess my mission's completed in that area. But now I'm stranded 15 years in my past before I've even been born! Noel is so sad, she misses her dad, and he must be scared crazy that his only child, his life is missing from the rest of the group. It wouldn't be so bad to stay here, but I have to think about Noel and her dad. So, we have to find another way to get home! Soon!
This is the end of "Future Children," but I've decided to make it into a trilogy.
