Colonel West, current commander of the Alpha Site, was surprised when Daniel, Teal'c and Bra'tac radioed in requesting access. He was almost positive they were supposed to all be in Chulak, as Senator Kinsey put it, "not jeopardising the Aschen-Human alliance."
"We're coming through," Daniel said.
West stared at his radio. The lieutenant currently sitting beside him looked up. "Open the iris," West said with a sigh. He wasn't going to allow good men to die needlessly, regardless of his orders not to let them through to the Alpha Site.
Moments later, Daniel stepped through the event horizon, closely followed by the Jaffa, both of which were carrying staff weapons.
Daniel looked around the Alpha Site. He was half expecting to end up as a squished almost-reintegrated mass on the iris of the Alpha Site gate. Almost like a bug on a windshield. "Thank you," he said to West who was next to several armed guards pointing weapons at them. "Ah, could you get them to put those away?"
West's face was expressionless. "Why are you here?"
"We need to contact the Tok'ra," Teal'c said.
As Daniel watched, both Teal'c and Bra'tac lifted up their staff weapons and pointed them at the guards and West. "We need to contact the Tok'ra," Bra'tac said gruffly.
Daniel stepped to one side, away from the possible staff blasts. "We need the subspace communicator that you have here," he explained. "Sam and the Ambassador are in trouble."
"Why are we to believe you?" West asked. "You are the ones holding weapons on us. For all we know, some Goa'uld on Chulak captured you and implanted a symbiote in Jackson and brainwashed you two."
"We don't have time for this," Teal'c said and in a lighting fast motion, pulled out a Zat and shot everybody except Daniel and Bra'tac.
Daniel didn't even have time to be surprised. "This is not the way I would have done it. We're going to be in so much trouble," he said quietly.
The wormhole opened and after a few seconds, Jacob stepped out. "You called?"
"Yes, we have a problem," Daniel explained and stood up from where he was examining an artefact that was at the Alpha Site. "Sam's been captured by the Aschen."
Jacob raised an eyebrow. "This does not explain why we are at the Alpha Site and not at the SGC. Don't get me wrong, I'm worried that my daughter is at the hands of the Ashen, whoever they are, but shouldn't Hammond be mobilising forces already?"
"That," Daniel said slowly, "is not going to happen. Earth is entering an alliance with the Aschen."
"Hammond of Texas is no longer at the SGC," Bra'tac added.
"He's been relieved of his post," Daniel continued. "And Earth's in danger. The Jaffa are in danger. The Tok'ra are in danger. Even the Goa'uld are in danger."
The expression on Jacob's face would have been almost comical to watch if the situation hadn't been so serious. "I can see that you need to explain a lot to me," he said, looking around.
Daniel noticed that he saw the locked doors. "We… appropriated the Alpha Site. The banging you hear is the rest of the personnel trying to get back in. We might want to leave."
"Very well," Jacob said. "You will come with me to the new Tok'ra base. There you will inform me of this new threat."
"My fellow Americans. My fellow people of earth," the President began slowly. He never thought he would still be in office to see this day, but ever since the inception of the Stargate program, the President had been slowly adding to his speech of what he was going to tell the American public when it all came out of the bag. "What I am about to tell you may shock and amaze you..."
There was a knock on his door.
"Come in," the President said.
His secretary opened the door. "We're ready for you," she said.
The President took a deep breath and prepared himself to tell the senior members of the White House about the best kept secret in the American military.
"Shouldn't somebody have mounted a rescue by now?" Joseph asked.
Sam didn't reply. She was concerned about the same thing. The SGC supposedly never left a person behind. Even with the impending alliance with Earth, she thought that somebody would have tried something. Surely Jack would have tried to rescue them?
"Just wait," she said. "I'm sure somebody's planning something. I just wish I could find some way out of this cell."
"Hmm," Joseph said dryly. "It seems the Aschen don't have wall panels with bright neon lights saying This Way to Escape."
Sam gave a short laugh. "Well we have to keep on trying."
