Chapter One

The wind blew gently through the long blades of grass, insects peacefully buzzed around the area unaware of the danger that was heading in their direction. Without warning a hole was blasted into the earth scorching grass and the insects that were once buzzing around without a care in the world were now lying dead littering the scorched earth.

Heavy footfalls came quickly following with the bodies of their attackers littering the ground, as if thunder rolled out from their deathly guns.

The only female among the group shouted over the noises "Colonel, we can't hold them off any longer!"

"Damn it Carter, don't you think I can tell that… Daniel dial the gate NOW!"

Daniel Jackson quickly sprang to action as he had so many times before. Quickly moving over to the DHD, commonly know as the Dial Home Device to all the members of Stargate Command, he lit up the buttons on the device in the right order and pressed the centre sphere in a hurry.

At the same time the inner track of the metal ring, known as the Stargate spun to lock on the seven chevrons. When the last one locked, a great wave of energy broke out from the inside of the Stargate, and right after it exploded, the wave settled back within the Stargate creating an event horizon of a stable wormhole.

"It's open! IDC sent!" Daniel shouted as he went running to the base of the Stargate.

"Right! Let's go people!" Jack moved stealthily towards the Stargate crouching low and firing continuously at the Jaffa warriors still coming towards their position.

His team safely gone through the event horizon, Jack also stepped through and the titanium iris shield came in front of the event horizon, preventing any unwelcome travellers to reconstitute on their side, killing them.

The Stargate disengaged. SG1 gathered at the bottom of the ramp in front of their Commanding Officer, General George Hammond. "Colonel, what happened out there?" Hammond's voice clearly showing his concern for his men (and woman) under his command.

"Oh, you know sir, just the general Daniel 'let's check out this peaceful planet to check out some rocks'. Then the snakeheads and their loyal Jaffa cronies shoot us at... see? Nothing unusual..." Jack said, smirking slightly, but quite happy to be back home safe.

Hammond nodded knowing his 2IC's comment was actually relief that everything had turned out ok in the end. "Ok SG1, report to Doctor Frasier, then debrief in 2 hours."

SG1 obeyed and headed out of the Gateroom.

Two hours later, all four members of SG1 were sat, showered and rested, talking amongst themselves while waiting for General Hammond. They were: Colonel Jonathan (Jack) O'Neill, 2IC of Stargate Command and leader of SG1; Major Samantha (Sam) Carter, second in command in SG1 team and head of the science department; Dr Daniel Jackson, member of SG1, entitled archaeologist and linguist of the team and occasionally of the SGC; and last but not least, was Teal'c, Jaffa, former first Prime of Apophis (false god), now member of SG1.

Hammond entered the briefing room a few minutes later carrying a few files in his hands. SG1 stopped their conversation, respectfully waiting for him to sit in his usual place at the head of the table. "Right, let's get down to business... Colonel, tell me what happened once you arrived on PY2 760?"

"Well, when we first arrived on PY2… um 760 it seemed unpopulated, as the MALP suggested, so we headed out to the ruins and Daniel did the things he usually does, digging in the dirt and rocks. We were there for about 2 hours before we noticed anything and it was Teal'c who brought it to my attention, a possible observer in the area. We checked it out but saw no one. So we stayed a while longer, though on full alert.

It was about another 30 minutes before Teal'c noticed the first Jaffa in the distance. I ordered everybody to head back towards the gate, which we did. We were almost there when the Jaffa decided they didn't want to let us go that easily and started to fire.

We ran and returned fire with the Jaffa hot on our heals. Finally at the gate, the Jaffa surrounded us so I ordered Daniel to dial up and we came back through"

"Thanks you Colonel. Teal'c, have you any idea who's Jaffa they were?"

"I believe they were loyal to Anubis" Teal'c answered.

"Right so any idea why Anubis was interested in PY2 760? Was there anything interesting in the ruins?" Hammond directed his question at Daniel.

"Ummmm… I can't be sure at the moment as I need to check out the video footage I took and do a bit more translating but I believe that the ruins were once another meeting place for the 4 races, you know the Asgard, Nox, Ancients and Furling's. I believe this 'village', to name it until I get a better word, was built by the Furling's. But for the writing, I don't have a clue until I translate it."

"Ok then, is there anything more?"

They all shook their head dismissively so General Hammond put an end to the briefing and let them go take some well deserved rest. He neatly piled all the papers and headed to his office to summaries it all, thankful to Major Carter for her always smart and useful reports to come... as for Colonel O'Neill's Reports... better not count on it to be written in the next year.

He'd been working for about an hour when there was a distracting knock on the door. Looking up, he shouted for whoever it was to enter, which they did.

Major Carter walked up to the desk. "Sir here's my report on the mission to PY2 760" Sam said standing back at full attention.

"Thank you Major. Is there anything else that you need?" as Hammond noticed there was obviously something bothering the Major.

"Well yes sir, I was just wondering if I could possibly have 2 weeks leave as I'd like to take my niece and nephew on a vacation..." Sam said slightly nervous about asking for time off.

"Of course major. It's about time you decided to take some time off! Are you planning to go anywhere nice?" Hammond said a smile now planted on his face.

Relaxing her stance, Sam voluntarily answered. "Well I was thinking about taking them to Paris then we can always have a day trip to Disneyland if they get bored of the city."

"That's a brilliant idea, and with Daniel working on the translation, SG1 will be on stand down. So I'll authorise it starting tomorrow morning. Could you please let Colonel O'Neill know?"

"Yes Sir and thank you, Sir." Sam quickly left the office.
