Harry Potter & the Star Forge

Chapter Four: Turbulence

"It was Sergeant Wells, last time anybody saw him he was checking for damage to the life support systems, that was just under 24 hours ago," Mitchell reported.

"Somebody want to tell me how a Wraith got onboard?" Colonel Emerson asked as he loaded a P-90 rifle and clipped it to his vest just as everybody else was.

"There's only one time it could have happened," Harry answered, "After the Darts went kamikaze into the Marauder I scanned the ship to make sure none got through. With my shield strength the way it was no way they could have gotten in, the Odyssey'sshields however were compromised by the black hole."

"And our internal scanners are one of the systems damaged in the attack," Sam added as she zipped up her vest.

"Can we stop discussing how it got on the ship and concentrate on getting rid of it? We can't let it get loose in our galaxy," Cameron interrupted.

"We've already searched the Odyssey, no sign of it," Daniel supplied.

"Which means it's probably in the Marauder, I have to get back up to the bridge, I'll bring us out of hyperspace until the situation is over and I can use the Marauder's scanners to find the Wraith," Harry said.

"Good idea, Colonel Carter, Doctor Jackson go with him. Colonel Mitchell, you'll lead one team to search for the Wraith, I'll lead the other. Contact us when you find the Wraith" Emerson ordered.

"Yes sir, Sergeant Wells' radio was also missing, the Wraith is probably listening in on any radio chatter" Sam and Cameron answered.

"The Speed-Dials have a secure communication system, I understand Doctor Weir gave half of them to you to take back to Earth?" Harry asked.

"That's right, Carter, Mitchell and myself will each take one and we'll leave one in the Odyssey control room to maintain contact," Emerson ordered.

After leaving the Odyssey, the ship locked down behind them stopping the Wraith from getting back onboard, the group split and went different directions, Harry, Sam and Daniel went one direction while eight others, including Mitchell and Emerson went an opposite direction.

The group moved quickly but carefully through the ship, Sam and Daniel aiming their P-90s down the hall while Harry took aim with his Particle Magnum set on kill. Within ten minutes they arrived at the bridge. Harry's face drained of color when he saw one of the consoles smashed and sparking.

"Let me guess, the scanners?" Daniel asked.

"Yeah," Harry said as he set his gun down and sat in the chair, but nothing happened. "Oh no," Harry groaned, he jumped up from the chair and moved behind it, he opened a panel at the base and punched the ground.

"Damn it, he took the control crystal, I can't bring us out of hyperspace," Harry revealed.

"What'll happen now?" Daniel asked.

"The ship will continue the course I programmed and automatically drop out of hyperspace at the destination," Harry revealed

"The destination being Earth?" Daniel asked rhetorically.

"We have two other problems," Sam said from a nearby console she was working on, "If I'm reading this correctly, the moment the Marauder comes out of hyperspace it's going to send a subspace communication back to Pegasus, most likely the location of Earth back to the rest of the Wraith."

"And the second problem?" Harry asked.

"The hyperdrive to drawing 500 percent more power from the ZPM, at this rate we'll arrive at Earth within an hour, if the hyperdrive doesn't burn out before then," Sam added.

"We can't let that happen," Harry said as he stood up from the chair and approached another console on the opposite side of the chair, he quickly tapped in an access code.

'I solemnly swear I am up to no good'

With the code entered a countdown appeared on the screen and an alarm sounded throughout the ship.

60:00

59:59

59:58

59:57

"Ok, that looks like a countdown," Daniel said worriedly.

"In one hour this ship will self destruct, we have until then to resolve the situation."

'Carter, we're hearing an alarm, what's happening?' Cameron's voice came from Sam's Speed-Dial.

"Sir, the Wraith got into the bridge's systems, scanners are down and the hyperdrive is being supercharged by the ZPM, we'll be at earth in just over an hour and then the ship will broadcast it's position to the rest of the Wraith. Harry just activated the self destruct, we'd do the same thing in his position," Sam defended Harry's actions.

'How long do we have?' Cameron asked.

"Just under an hour," Sam answered.

"Colonel Mitchell," Harry spoke into a radio he'd been given, "When we get to earth the Wraith is going to need a way get down to the surface, the Marauder has a dozen escape pods on the east side of the ship, he'll most likely use them," Harry informed.

'Understood, I'll take my team and secure them'

"Sam, you said this Wraith has one of your radios right?" Harry asked.

"Yeah, Sergeant Wells' was missing from his body," Sam said, Harry held out his hand and looked at Sam's radio still attached to her vest, Sam unclipped it and passed it to him.

"I know you're listening, we're onto you and you will never reach Earth," Harry said seriously into the Radio.

'… you cannot stop me,' a voice called back over the radio, Harry felt a chill run up his spine at the sound of the voice.

"Ok, first thing's first I'm not going to keep calling you 'Wraith', Colonel Sheppard told me he likes to name the Wraith he talks to, soo… let's call you Tom, that ok with you Tom?" Harry asked and but got no answer.

"You must have heard the alarm by now Tom, this ship will self destruct before reaching Earth, but I don't want anybody else to die so I'm offering you a deal, give yourself up and I'll send you back to the Pegasus galaxy alive," Harry offered.

'Fool, your race exists to nourish mine, Earth belongs to us and we will take it' 'Tom' replied.

"This deal is only good for right now Tom, if we find you ourselves or if you kill another human, your life is forfeit," Harry said seriously.

'Come and find me Atlantian, I will feast upon you!' Tom roared down the Radio making Harry wince away from the Radio.

"Are Wraith always that dramatic?" Harry asked Sam.

"You think they're bad, you should see the Goa'uld," Daniel supplied.

"Tom?" Sam asked questioningly as Harry.

"A guy I used to know, tried for years to kill me, ever since I was a baby," Harry answered with a shrug. "Sam, if we can get to the ZPM I can disconnect it, that'll force the ship to drop out of hyperspace," Harry said as he picked his gun back up and made towards the doors, followed by Sam and Daniel.

Minutes later the three were heading towards the power room when Harry felt something wrong, he looked to the side and saw something that wasn't part of the ship, a triangle device with three flashing lights.

"BOMB!" Harry shouted with wide eyes, he spun around and gripped Sam and Daniel's shoulders just as the device exploded.

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

Mitchell and Vala made had just finished checking the escape pods when the ship suddenly shook violently and an explosion was heard nearby.

"The self destruct?" Vala asked quickly as she gripped the wall to keep her balance.

"No, if it was we'd be dead," Mitchell answered as he turned his Speed-Dial on..

"Carter we just heard an explosion, report!" Cam waited for a moment but received no answer, "Sam do you read me?"

'…Colonel we're still here, we tripped a bomb the Wraith laid for us on our way to the power generator…' Sam answered to Cam's relief.

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

Back on the Bridge a few moments earlier a loud crack filled the air and three people appeared in the middle of the air and dropped five feet to the ground. Sam keeled over and gagged a few times.

"Ahh, what the hell was that?" Daniel said while holding his arm where he'd landed on it.

"We're back on the bridge," Sam observed as she wiped her mouth.

"It was another of my abilities. It's called apparation, I transformed us into energy, transported us here and reintegrated us," Harry said with a wince while holding his side, stumbled to his feet and moved toward a console.

"Like how a Stargate works?" Sam asked curiously but her eyes widened when she saw drops of crimson flowing down Harry's leg and too the ground.

"You're bleeding!" Sam said and rushed to Harry, she turned him around and pulled his coat to the side, Harry had a large gash on the left side of his torso just below the rib cage.

"Did the explosion cause this?" Sam said in worry.

"No, it's called splinching, one of the dangers of apparation, if I don't concentrate I can leave part of myself behind. I didn't exactly have much time to concentrate, you should consider yourself lucky you still have both your arms, legs and… other parts you should probably check on later," Harry said as he shot a look at Daniel while continuing to work on the console.

"The explosion caused a hull breach, that entire section of the ship has been sealed to prevent decompression. Including the power generation room, looks like Tom thought of everything," Harry said as his vision started to fade and his knees buckled.

"Harry? Harry!" Sam shouted in worry as she caught him and carefully lowered him down to the ground.

'Carter we just heard an explosion, report!' Colonel Mitchell's voice came from her Speed-Dial, she ignored it for a moment as she tried to press Harry's shirt against his wound to stop the bleeding 'Sam do you read me?'

Sam held the shirt in place with one hand while she raised the Speed-Dial which was strapped to her other arm.

"Colonel we're here, we tripped a bomb the Wraith laid for us on our way to the power generator… Harry saved us but he's badly hurt, he's unconscious and if he doesn't get medical attention soon he's going to bleed to death," Sam replied.

'Tell me something, how the hell does this Wraith know where all the vital systems are?' Cam asked in a frustrated tone.

"Well the Wraith were at war with the Atlantians for a hundred years and this model of ship was their main offensive weapon, it figures a Wraith would know the layout," Daniel supplied.

'Colonel Carter this is Emerson, I'm back onboard the Odyssey and we're prepared to use the Asgard beam to transport you directly to our medical bay,' Emerson's voice said through the Speed-Dial.

"Do it," Carter replied. A moment later Sam, Daniel and Harry were engulfed in a white light and disappeared.

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

Harry's eyes slowly fluttered open and he found himself laying on a stiff bed looking up at a metal ceiling. Sam was sat beside him. Harry remembered the situation and sat up quickly.

"Ahh," Harry winced at the pain in his side, his shirt and coat had been taken off and his side was wrapped.

"Careful, you'll pop your stitches," Sam reprimanded.

"How long have I been out? The self destruct!" Harry asked in a panicked tone.

"Just under half an hour, we have a little over fifteen minutes before the self destruct goes off," Sam told him as she placed a hand on his shoulder and pushed him back down, you need to stay still, you're not out of the woods yet, you still lost a lot of blood.

"The Wraith?" Harry asked.

"Colonel Mitchell has set up an ambush at the escape pods, if it goes there we'll get him, then we'll only have a few minutes to deactivate the self destruct, I need you to give me the code," Sam said.

"The code, it's…" Harry stopped speaking when he suddenly felt something, the environment blurred his stomach flopped.

"What was that?" Sam asked as she held her own stomach.

"We just dropped out of hyperspace," Harry said urgently. "I thought you said it's only been half an hour?"

"It has, we shouldn't be there yet," Sam said as she activated her Speed-Dial, "This is Colonel Carter, have we arrived at earth?" Sam spoke into her Speed-Dial.

'No ma'am, we're in orbit above a different planet on the edge of the Milky Way,' a voice replied.

"Tom must have altered my flight program," Harry said as he sat up again much to Sam's worry.

"But why? The Wraith want to get to Earth, so why would he bring us out of hyperspace early?" Sam asked.

"The self destruct, he knows the ship will be destroyed before he can reach Earth, I guess he figures he'll settle for escaping into your galaxy," Harry figured.

"And then he'll find a way to signal the rest of the Wraith, if they can get to this galaxy they'll eventually find Earth," Sam realized.

"We have to stop him," Harry said as he tried to sit up.

"We're taking care of it, there's no other way off the ship other than the escape pods and we have them covered…"

"What did you just say?" Harry interrupted as his face drained of color, something Sam said had made him realize he had overlooked something.

"The escape pods, you said they're the only way off the ship," Sam repeated.

"That was when I thought he was trying to get from the ship to the earth's surface," Harry said gravely, "If he's not trying to get to Earth anymore he has another way off the ship."

"How?" Sam asked with panicked eyes.

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

Fourteen minutes to detonation.

On the other side of the Marauder a door hissed open and a figure stepped in, he was tall and muscular with pale green skin, wearing black pants and an armored vest leaving his arms bare. He had a black tattoo around his left eye and long white hair falling down his back. He looked around the room for what he was looking for, he hit a switch next to the door and the light turned on, his mouth cracked into a smile showing off two rows of razor sharp teeth there, in the middle of the room was what he was looking for, a Stargate.

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

'Why didn't you tell us you had a Stargate onboard?' Cameron roared down the Speed-Dial as he ran down corridors towards the location of the gate with Daniel.

"It wasn't relevant at the time, the Stargate wouldn't have worked in hyperspace," Harry said as he sat up in the bed and strapped his gun back to his side.

"Harry you can hardly move!" Sam tried to reason.

Harry's bracer started to glow, he placed his hand over his bandaged wound, the glow seemed to flow from the crystal into his body and disappeared. Harry stood up and stretched, he didn't wince or flinch.

"See? Feels as good as new," Harry said with a smile as he grabbed his coat and swung it over his back slipping his arms into it as he did. As his old shirt was covered in blood his chest remained bare apart from the bandages.

"Now, we have to get to the Stargate before he escapes," Harry said as he drew his gun and checked it's settings.

Sam raised her Speed-Dial. "Control room, can you use the Asgard transporters to get us to the Stargate?"

"Won't work," Harry said with a shake of his head, "That area of the ship is shielded from foreign energy patterns, it's to prevent malfunctions with the gate."

'I'm sorry Colonel, that area of the ship is shielded,' a voice replied.

"See?" Harry said while pointing at the device.

"The Stargate is on the other side of the ship, we won't get there in time!" Sam said in resignation.

"There is a way, apparation," Harry said and held out a hand to her.

"You mean that thing that gave you the hole in your side?" Sam asked nervously.

"Don't worry, this time I have a chance to concentrate, we'll arrive in one piece," Harry assured.

Sam took a deep breath and pulled her P-90 into a ready position, then she placed her hand in Harry's, with a loud crack they disappeared. Leaving a small pool of blood where Harry had been standing.

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

Ten minutes to detonation

Harry and Sam appeared in the gate room with a loud crack, Harry had enough time to hear the activation sound of the Stargate before he grabbed Sam.

"Down!" Harry yelled even as they dropped to the ground, the unstable vortex from the gate missed them by inches. Before Harry could get back up a clawed hand gripped him by the back of his coat and threw him across the room.

"Ahh," Harry grunted as he slammed into the ground.

Sam raised her P-90 to aim at the Wraith Harry had named Tom, but it was knocked aside before she could fire a shot, with a strong backhand to the face she fell to the ground.

Tom turned and looked at Harry.

"You cannot stop us Atlantian, we shall have our new feeding ground," he hissed out before turning towards the gate and walking forwards.

Harry jumped to his feet and rushed at Tom, Harry tackled him to the ground just before he reached the gate, Harry took the opportunity to punch the Wraith in the face as hard as he could, it didn't seem to phase it, Tom caught Harry's second punch and thrust his own fist into Harry's gut doubling him over.

Tom regained his footing and loomed over Harry, he raised his open hand and slowly lowered it to Harry's chest ready to feed.

-BANG-

Sam fired her pistol, the bullet impacted Tom's back making him spin on the spot to kick the gun from her hands. He raised his hand, ready slam his palm down on her when a noise filled the room.

-Rat-tat-tat-.

Colonel Mitchell stood in the doorway unloading his P-90 into Tom's chest causing him to stumble back leaving several splatters of black blood hitting the ground. Mitchell's gunfire didn't stop until the clip was empty. Tom turned back to the Stargate and while seemingly ignoring his injuries, broke out into a sprint.

Harry dove for his gun and for the first time fired it, a red bolt of energy exploded from the gun, but it didn't head for the Wraith, it impacted a nearby console, the controls for the Stargate. Just as Tom was about to jump through the watery surface the wormhole disengaged and the gate shut down.

"Rrraaghh!" Tom roared in anger, he rushed into one of the dark corners of the room, Cam started firing his newly reloaded P-90 and was joined by Harry and Sam firing with their own weapons. Tom unfortunately disappeared into an access hatch near the back of the room.

"Ok, now the only way off the ship really is the escape pods," Cam said while looking at the destroyed gate controls.

"Yeah, we have to hurry, the planet below us has a Stargate, if he gets to it he can still escape," Harry said as he broke into a jog from the room followed by Mitchell and Sam..

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

Six minutes to detonation

Harry reached the escape pods too late, the room was filled with the unconscious bodies of the team left to guard the pods, including Daniel. Tom stood outside the pod and smiled at Harry before walking into it.

"No!" Harry shouted and fired at the retreating Wraith, missing wildly. He ran forward and reached the pod just as the door slammed shut. Harry could see Tom through the small circular window into the pod, he cruelly smiled and waved to Harry, a moment later the pod shot out into space and towards the planet, all of the other pods launched too stopping any attempt to follow Tom down to the planet the same way.

"Damn it!" Harry said as he slammed his fist into the window

"Don't worry, he won't get far," Cam said as he reached into his vest.

Cameron held up a small black box with a switch on the side.

"I figured he might double back here, so I left a little insurance," he said with a grin. He flicked the safety catch up and hit the switch.

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

Tom smiled as he sat down and started to strap himself into the seat to prepare for landing, that when he heard it, a steady rhythmic beeping coming from under the seat.

He reached under the seat and felt something, he pulled at it and it came loose easily. He held it up to his eyes, it was a square yellow block with black writing on it.

'C4 Explosive' it also had a small circular device connected to it that let off the beeping.

"Rrr, Rrraahhh!" Tom roared as he realized what the device was.

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

Five minutes to detonation

Outside the windows Harry, Sam and Cam watched as the dozen escape pods exploded in a brilliant flash.

"Looks like Tom isn't the only one who can be clever with bombs," Harry said as he let out a gasp of relief.

"You ok Daniel?" Sam asked as he long time teammate regained consciousness.

"We're not out of trouble yet, you still need to turn off the self destruct," Cam reminded.

"Right," Harry said as he broke out into another jog, this time back towards the bridge. Cam followed him closely along with Daniel, Sam was about to follow when she noticed something, drops of blood where Harry had been standing.

"Damn it!" Sam cursed when she realized Harry was still hurt.

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

One minute to detonation

Arriving at the bridge Harry rushed to a command console and tapped the deactivation code. 'Mischief managed' The timer stopped at 36 seconds.

"Why do we always have to cut things so close?" Daniel asked with a sigh of relief.

Harry suddenly collapsed at the console, Sam rushed to him and checked under his bandages.

"Damn it Harry, I thought you healed yourself," Sam said while putting pressure on the wound.

"Actually, I never was good at healing, what I did back on the Odyssey was numb the pain," Harry confessed as his vision started to darken for the second time in an hour.

"Harry! Harry stay with me, we'll get help…" Sam's voice faded away.

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

Harry's eyes fluttered open to see a grey concrete wall above him. A sterile smell in the air.

"Ok, this better not turn into a habit again," Harry muttered as he slowly sat up and looked around, he seemed to be in a medical room with concrete walls and a heavy metal door.

"What better not turn into a habit?" a young woman said as she approached him, she had long brown hair and wore a white coat.

"Getting knocked unconscious and waking up in a medical wing, how long was I out and where exactly am I?" Harry asked cautiously.

"I'm Doctor Lamb, you're in Stargate command on Earth," she informed.

"And you've been out for a day," a new voice continued, Harry looked up and saw SG-1 walk into the room along with the man Harry recognized as Teal'c.

"You said you'd healed yourself," Sam said angrily.

"No I didn't, I put on a little light show and you assumed I healed myself," Harry countered.

"Now, how's my ship?" Harry asked.

"In orbit, after you lost consciousness we used the Stargate on the Marauder to gate to Earth and get you medical attention, then we had a friend with the ATA gene pilot the ship the rest of the way to Earth," Sam explained.

"But the Wraith still had the control crystal when he was killed," Harry said with a frown.

"Actually he didn't," Daniel said as he stepped forward, "When he attacked us outside the pods I managed to get it from him."

"I gotta say that's a sweet ride you've got," another man said as he entered the room, he wore a navy blue suit with several medals on the chest and stars on the shoulders, he had graying short hair. "What kind of mileage you get on that thing?"

"Harry, this is General Jack O'Neil, he's the one who piloted the Marauder back to Earth," Sam explained.

"Kinda hard to park though," O'Neil muttered.

"I better not find a dent in it," Harry joked.

"Bigger than the one the Wraith put in it?" Cam asked

"Talking about that, getting the rest of the way to Earth burned out the hyperdrive, we don't know how to fix it or the rest of the damaged systems," Sam informed.

"I can take care of that," Harry said with a smile.

"Doctor, is he ok to leave?" Cam asked.

"Vala was able to heal him with a Goa'uld healing device, his side will be a little tender for a while and I'd like him to use a crutch for a few days, other than that you're free to leave,"

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

Thirty minutes later SG-1 and Harry were in a briefing room overlooking the Stargate, with them was Colonel Emerson and Generals Landry and O'Neil. The team had just finished informing General Landry exactly what happened on the Marauder.

"If Harry shot the gate controls how did you dial earth?" Landry asked.

"The gate still had power, we were able to unlock the inner ring and dial manually, we tried using the Speed-Dial's but they kept connecting to the Stargate on the planet below us instead of the one on the Marauder, probably because it was connected to a DHD, the Speed-Dial recognized that gate as the primary," Sam explained.

"We've finished installing the Odyssey's new hyperdrive, all the Marauder has to do is open the doors and let us out," Emerson said.

"Sir, I know I said I wouldn't stay in Earth orbit without permission. I'm sorry but until my ship is repaired I don't really have much choice," Harry said regretfully.

"You have permission, god knows we owe you that much," Landry said as he clasped his hands in front of him.

"Thank you sir, I'll keep the ship behind your moon, it'll minimize the chance of your population seeing me."

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

An hour later the Odyssey had used it's Asgard transporters to bring Harry back to the ship. He quickly made his way to the bridge, the damage from the Wraith's bomb forced him to take the long way around, when he reached the bridge he took off his coat and slumped into the control chair, with the control crystal back in place the chair lit up and shifted back.

"Odyssey, this is Harry, I'm prepared to open the cargo bay doors when you're ready," Harry informed.

'This is Emerson, we're ready when you are,'

In the Cargo bay the doors beneath the Odyssey cracked open showing the Earth far below them, the Odyssey was held up by a force field until the doors were completely open. The doors finished open and the force field deactivated, the Odyssey carefully drifted down out of the cargo bay.

'Harry this is Sam, we're clear of the doors,' Sam's voice supplied.

The Odyssey's sublight engines lit up and the ship flew clear of the Marauder as the doors slammed shut behind them. In a flash of light Sam appeared beside Harry's chair.

"Looks like the Odyssey is fully operational again. How exactly are you going to repair your ship? Are you sure you don't need any help," Sam asked in a concerned tone "This ship is huge and you're just one man."

"I'll be fine, let me show you how the repairs will work," Harry said as he stood up and walked from the room with his crutch.

After a few minutes of walking they came to the cargo bay which had previously contained the Odyssey. Harry made his way to the backward section where several spheres protruded from the wall. Harry tapped in an access code on the wall and the spheres opened with a hiss and several spherical machines hovered out of the wall.

"Woah, what are they?" Sam asked as she reached out for one, it moved away from her, they all beeped for a moment and suddenly flew away, disappearing into the ship.

"Repair drones, I have hundreds of them at the Star Forge, they're what build the ships. Those ones will scan the ship for damage and repair it. The scanners and Stargate controls will be fixed within an hour but the hyperdrive and hull breach will take longer since I don't have a constant supply of materials from thousands of exploding suns, the drones will take time to travel to your sun and draw materials they need, then return and fix the ship," Harry explained.

V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W V W

Several days later the Marauder was still being repaired. Harry had little to do other than practice his magic and study the information on the Ori the SGC had transmitted to him, what he read so far sickened him. Harry respected that other religions existed and respected people's belief in then, but slaughtering people because they refused to follow those beliefs went too far. What worried Harry was that the leaders of this religion were ascended beings, something that cannot be killed.

However Doctor Jackson had told him that Merlin had created a weapon when he was still around, a weapon that could destroy ascended beings, the Sangreal.

In the days waiting for his ship to finished being repaired Harry tried to think of how he could contribute to the fight against the Ori. He had no idea how powerful one of the Ori ships were, or if the Marauder could stand up to one, he doubted he could trick another ship into flying in front of a Supergate. He needed more information, more experience.

With that in mind he made a request to General Landry, he wanted to join missions through the Stargate with SG-1. He could go by himself but he figured it would be safer as a team, plus the best way to beat the Ori would be to pool resources with Stargate command to find Merlin's weapon.

The IOA spent days deciding on the request, one day SG-1 invited Harry down to the base for dinner. They figured he was getting bored on the ship all alone.

"I know it doesn't look very good but it's actually pretty damn tasty," Cam said as Harry picked up a piece of Pizza. It annoyed Harry that he had to play ignorant, he had to pretend he'd never seen it before, however when he took a bite he didn't need to hide his reaction to the taste, it was the first time he'd tasted it.

"Delicious," Harry said with a smile.

"Tell you what, we'll trade you the recipe for a ship," Cam offered jokingly.

"Ok," Harry said with a shrug making Cam choke on his food. Harry smirked at him.

"You're not the only one who can joke," Harry said after Cam stopped choking. "To tell the truth anything is better than what the Star Forge makes."

"I thought the Star Forge couldn't make food?" Sam asked.

"It makes something, although I wouldn't call it food. It's a mixture of nutrients that the body needs, it comes out as this disgusting looking paste. It can keep me from starving but it tastes like swamp water," Harry said with a grimace.

After eating they made their way to the gym where Cam challenged the others to a game of basketball.

"Ok, let's pick teams," Cam started but was interrupted by Harry.

"How about me, Teal'c and Vala vs. you, Sam and Daniel?" Harry offered.

"Why those teams?" Daniel asked.

"What's the matter, don't think you humans can beat us aliens?" Harry teased and got a smirk from Sam and Vala.

After ten minutes and five points to the aliens, the door to the gym opened and General Landry stepped in.

"Sir," Cameron and Sam chimed together.

"At ease Colonels, the IOA have made their decision concerning Harry joining the SGC. It seems Mr. Woolsey convinced them that you would fight the Ori either way and that it would be better for Earth if you worked with us rather than around us, congratulations," Landry said as he held out a hand to Harry which he shook.

"Thank you sir, while away with SG-1, I'll be leaving the Marauder in orbit unless I need it. Just incase the Ori try to attack, you'll have a fair chance of fighting back," Harry informed.

"Good, we just received word from SG-7 that a Prior has been trying to convert the inhabitants on P3X-561 and have set up a supply base near the gate, you wanted a chance to see one of the Priors up close? Here's your chance, I'm sending SG-1 on a reconnaissance mission, suit up and report to the gate room in 30 minutes," Landry ordered before leaving the room.

A little later Harry was waiting in the gate room for the rest of SG-1, he was wearing his coat with a slight alteration, on the left upper arm of his coat was a patch with the symbol for earth, the pyramid with the sun above it. On his upper right arm was another patch with the chevron symbol from the Stargate and the letters SG-1 inside it.

On his left wrist he had secured his Speed-Dial, on his right wrist was the bracer that helped his magic and strapped to his waist was his Particle Magnum.

Harry looked at the Stargate as the inner ring span and looked the symbols one by one.

'Chevron Five encoded' a man said over the base speakers as another piece of the gate lit up. The metal doors opened and SG-1 walked in dressed in their green outfits with black vests and each carrying a P-90.
