Stargate SG-1 (1997–2007): Season 5, Episode 18 - The Warrior - full transcript

A new leader has risen among the Free Jaffa, K'tano, former First Prime of Imhotep. SG-1, accompanied by Bra'tac, seeks an alliance between the Tau'ri and the large force he has amassed.

My name is K'tano.

The once first prime of Imhotep.

A false god.

A false god who has died
by my own hand.

Now I am free.

I am a free Jaffa.

If you have come to this place,
then you wish to know freedom as I do.

If you've come to hear me, then you know
in your heart and in your mind

that the Goa'uld are not gods!


Still, I am but one warrior.

Only together, we are an army of warriors!

(man) An army has weapons!
An army has food!

In time, we shall have weapons,

and enough food and drink to sustain us
for as long as it takes to achieve victory.

Until then, we have our freedom.

We have our brothers and sisters.

I do not say that this will be easy.

There will be sacrifice.

But for each of you who dies
in the name of freedom,

your soul shall be sent to Kheb,

the place of freedom everlasting.

Until then,

if you seek freedom,

if you seek sanctuary,

know that this place is sanctuary.

- This is Cal Mah.
- (cheering)

I declare this world
a free world for all Jaffa!

Let no Goa'uld challenge us!

The time has come for Jaffa to claim
their rightful place among the stars

as warriors who live
and as warriors who die free!

What say you, Teal'c? Is he not
the means to our deliverance?


Do you know what happened
to the guys in that movie?

I do not.

Master Bra'tac, that's
a very strong recommendation.

Yes, it is. Yet the rewards
of such an alliance would be great.

- Teal'c?
- Many of our allies have fallen, General.

The Tollan may be gone for ever.
The Tok'ra are severely weakened.

- K'tano offers an army.
- An army that needs our help.

- Have not the Jaffa helped your cause?
- Teal'c, please don't misunderstand me.

You and Bra'tac have done more for us
than anyone could ask.

I owe you both my life.
That's not what I'm saying.

What she's saying is, if this guy's come
to us, he's gotta be pretty desperate.

We shouldn't underestimate
this opportunity.

An army of Jaffa challenging
the power structure of the Goa'uld...

It could inspire the Jaffa. Word of its
very existence is a threat to the Goa'uld.

You think the Goa'uld will let it happen?

We do not.

Which makes K'tano's need so great.

His army is drawn
from many different System Lords.

More flock to him
with each raid he makes.

But an army cannot live on courage alone.

Dr Jackson, tell us about this Imhotep.
This is the first I've heard of him.

In the third dynasty of ancient Egypt,

Imhotep was credited
as the first pyramid builder.

He was deified by the Egyptians,

but among the Goa'uld
he never achieved power of any kind.

He was never a System Lord.

Imhotep was probably an insignificant
Goa'uld from a backwater planet.

Which explains how K'tano
has managed to survive.

- He took out a nobody.
- Which probably only buys us time.

If we don't help, the Goa'uld will
see this as the threat it really is.

Imhotep may have been a minor Goa'uld,
but K'tano is a great leader of men.

I believe he will lead his army to victory
over those who would deny us freedom.

I've already ordered food and
medical supplies for transport.

What we need to discuss is
what kind of weapons and how many.

Your projectile weapons
have proven effective in battle.

P-90s, MP-5s, SPAS-12s...

For several hundred warriors.

That may take some doing.

General Hammond, if we may send
a smaller number of weapons,

as a gesture of good intentions.

I think we owe these folks... to a point.

Very well. You have a go.

O'Neill, you should know that some
of the Jaffa you are about to meet

you may have met before, in battle.

Yeah... I thought about that.

The Jaffa have long memories.

That's all right because... I don't.

It's... It's a... joke.

Master Bra'tac, let's hope your faith
in this man is well deserved.

I would stake my life on it.

Ours too, apparently.

I am Master Bra'tac, of Chulak.

I have come with warriors of the Tauri.

Hi, guys!

Tek mat'ek.

It means "Friends well met."
He's saying we come in peace.

- Rak'nor.
- Teal'c. Tek mat'ek.

It was Teal'c who gave me
my first taste of freedom.

It is because of you I am here.
Tek matte.

"Tek matte" is a greeting of respect.

- OK.
- I'm just saying.

- I don't care.
- OK.

These are among the great warriors
of the Tauri. Daniel Jackson, Major Carter,

and their leader, Colonel O'Neill.

Tek mat'ek.

Back at ya.

Back at ya.

- You've come to speak with K'tano.
- Yes.

He's on a mission
and will return very soon.

- What is this?
- The first shipment of many.

We brought food, supplies,

and last...


(murmurs in crowd)

- What?
- Your gesture is appreciated but...

they had hoped you would bring
staff weapons. Zat'n'ktels. True weapons.

- True weapons?
- It does not matter, friend.

Come. See how our numbers are growing.

You see, O'Neill,

these Jaffa were once
sworn mortal enemies,

each serving different false gods.

Now they work in harmony.

Our numbers grow
with each successful campaign.

And you just trust
every new arrival to your cause?

Isn't it possible that some of these Jaffa
are still Ioyal to their gods

and are acting as spies
within your ranks?

A warrior of K'tano's experience

can see within the very soul of
another Jaffa and know his allegiance.

Kind of a leap of faith, isn't it?

No more than when Teal'c went through
the rite of M'al Sharran.

I saw into his heart and knew
he no longer worshipped Apophis.

That's not quite the same, is it?

Our ways are different
to you, O'Neill. Accept that.

This discipline is called Mastaba.

All of Imhotep's Jaffa
were required to master it.

And now we require it of ourselves.

Bashaak. Training staffs.

Out of necessity, Teal'c. There are not
enough staff weapons for all.

(battle cries)

You overcommit!

This young warrior's name is Tara'c.

- Tek matte, Master.
- If you would allow me.

The weapon is balanced,
but the warrior is not.

When one overcommits, one becomes
vulnerable to counterattack.

When one achieves balance in combat,
one will survive to achieve balance in life.

Forgive me, Master, but K'tano teaches

that one must strike with
single-minded purpose to victory,

without regard for one's survival.

Show me.

- Hey, easy, easy, easy.
- Leave them, O'Neill.


- What the hell are you doin'?!
- We are training.

I'd call it beatin' the crap
out of each other!

The boy's symbiote
will heal his injuries, O'Neill.

K'tano teaches that we must be
willing to die if we are to be free.

Well, if you all die, you won't
have an army. That's kinda stupid.

- Kek mattet, kree!
- What?!

You insult our ways, O'Neill.

- He is challenging you.
- Kek mattet!

Yeah, just...

Easy, stick boy. I'm just here to help.

(man) K'tano returns!

Where... Where are you goin'?


You know, we never get this
when we come home.


This day, three of our warriors
have fallen in the name of freedom.

They fought fiercely
against Zipacna's forces,

and they died bravely,

and have secured for themselves
a place in Kheb.

So, too, have they strengthened
our ability to fight back at the enemy.


True weapons.

Tek mal tiak.

- Tek matte.
- You flatter me, Master Bra'tac.

Ya duru Arik kek Onac.

I honour he who would kill his god.
And to his brethren of the Tauri.

Slayers of Ra, Hathor, Setesh, Heru-ur,

Sokar, Cronus and Apophis.

Well! Somebody's been keepin' score.

- Colonel Jack O'Neill.
- A familiar name.

Cursed by every Goa'uld.

Imhotep himself declared
your days were numbered.

Well, that's fine. As long as
it's a really big number.

Because of you, the armies of these
fallen System Lords now swell our ranks.

- We owe you thanks.
- Tek mat'ek, K'tano.

- We also offer an alliance.
- Then you are most welcome.

And food and supplies for your people.

- Glorious!
- (cheering)

And, of course, weapons.

Earth weapons.

Take no offence, my friend, but your
weapons are primitive by comparison.

Carter, I think a little demonstration
is in order. Don't you?

This weapon is called a P-90.

It carries a 50-round, top-loading
magazine of Teflon-coated ordnance

with a cyclical rate of fire
of 900 rounds per minute.

- Who here can handle a staff weapon?
- Rak'nor is among our best marksmen.

Carter, that target.
What... 60, 70 yards down?

Give or take, sir.

Fire away, son.

Well done. Ta'i kree.

Two out of three. That's... not bad.

- Carter?
- The female?

- Major Carter is a formidable warrior.
- Yes, of course.

Actually, hold up a second.

Hey, you! In the skirt!

Get that target swingin' a little!

A little more!

All right. Step away.

When you're ready, Major.

Uh, Major, demonstrate
the weapon on single-shot.


is a weapon of terror.

It's made to intimidate the enemy.


is a weapon of war.

It's made to kill your enemy.

And it's capable of doing so effectively at
five times the range I just demonstrated.

We've used it to win skirmishes with the
Goa'uld and the Jaffa who served them.

Those of you who have
gone up against us and survived,

and you know who you are,

you know what I'm talking about.

We accept your gifts
with gratitude... and humility.

Now, let us celebrate this new alliance!


- They really like doing that, don't they?
- Yes, sir.

Your weapons are formidable, yes,
but they lack the endurance of a staff.

- We have these.
- You provide them freely?

- Isn't that the purpose of an alliance?
- It gives you power over us.

How so?

If K'tano does not do exactly as agreed,
you may withhold ammunition.

OK, first of all, Teal'c,

as long as you're a member of SG-1, you
should use the pronoun "we", not "you".

And secondly, we're not holding back.
We're offering the best we've got.

Now, you can either take it...
or leave it.

Of course. It is only concern
for my people that I raise these questions.

- Your people?
- No warrior here cannot say "my people".

- As I also have done.
- Colonel O'Neill fears I may seek power.

- Well, you are gathering an army.
- And I lead.

But there is no warrior among us
who cannot claim Joma Secu.

- Challenge of leadership.
- To determine the victor's worthiness.

- To the death, I suppose.
- Of course.

Of course.

Yeah, well, where I come from,
we do things... a little differently.

You want us to change our ways
to suit yours?

- I didn't say that, but if it's no trouble...
- K'tano.

Colonel O'Neill, it is my hope that
we can learn from our differences,

that they bond us together,
make us stronger.

Your words are wise, Master Bra'tac.

Yes. Wise indeed.

Tomorrow we will bond, in battle.

You are familiar with
the System Lord Nirrti?

- Oh, yeah.
- Tomorrow we raid a supply shipment

intended for a battalion of Nirrti's Jaffa.

- Join us.
- If we do, what's... in it for us?

- I see you speak your mind, O'Neill.
- Yes, which is why I don't say much.

A share of the spoils.

Spoils are good. We like spoils.

Teal'c has informed me that
you require several hours of sleep.

There is no shame in doing so.

Gee, thanks.

(hearty laugh)

- Shal met.
- Shal met.

Have you chosen to join us, Teal'c?

- K'tano has yet to ask.
- He will.

You will take your place
as a leader in the Jaffa nation.

I have long dreamed
Jaffa would one day be free.

But I fear that day is farther off
than K'tano believes.

We have come so far
because of you, Teal'c.

K'tano could not have hoped to raise
such an army, had you not led the way.


And we will grow even stronger now that
the Tauri have become our allies.

Of that I'm not so sure.

K'tano's ways are... difficult
for the people of the Tauri to understand.

We shall gain our freedom
with or without them.


- Forgive me.
- There is nothing to forgive.

- I do not speak for O'Neill.
- What you say is true.

They are different. Cynical of our ways.
O'Neill most of all.

- Yet they are my friends.
- And we are your brothers.

I am not a fool, Teal'c.
I know the Tauri are strong.

An alliance can make us stronger.

But I abandon nothing of who and what
we are, for neither human nor Goa'uld.

I guess Teal'c's staying out all night
with his new buddies.

Well, he did get in
all that quality kelno'reeming.

What do you think?

Of K'tano?

You have to admit he's got presence.
His followers are almost fanatical.

- "Almost"?
- It does make them formidable.

Ancient Japanese feudal lords
recognised indifference to death

as a very effective tool in battle.

- What's with this "Jomo Sicko" thing?
- Joma Secu.

Like anybody's gonna challenge him.

K'tano's collected Jaffa from six System
Lords. He must be doing something right.

Well, they have no problem with dying.
I have a problem with that.

With dying? Or with the fact that
they don't have a problem with it?

Both. I think.

Get some sleep.
We have to bond in the morning.


You are surrounded!
Relinquish your weapons!

- Hey!
- He does not know fear.

Well, he knows stupid!

Hal mak! Hold your fire!

I am K'tano. If you've heard that name,
then you know that there are other Jaffa

who believe that the Goa'uld
are false gods!

Join us in the struggle
against our oppressors

and live to see freedom!

If you do not believe in freedom
for our people, brother,

then shoot me now.


Do you believe in him now, O'Neill?

(sporadic cheering)


I'm a little concerned about K'tano.

- Explain.
- Oh, you know. That stunt he just pulled.

K'tano is driven by
the power of his beliefs.

His beliefs are very impressive, but
his tactics could've gotten us all killed.

- K'tano was successful.
- I say he got lucky.

Then it appears we disagree.


K'tano summons us.

- Sir?
- We got a problem with Teal'c.

He's buyin' into K'tano's act.

You don't really think it's an act, do you?
K'tano certainly believes in this cause.

I think K'tano believes
he could walk on water.

The fruits of our newborn alliance.

The cutting edge that is
the sword of our rebellion.

Weapons-grade naqahdah, sir. A lot of it.

That's quite a haul.
What are you gonna do with it?

I will give you as much as is fair.
I have plans for the rest.

As for the zat'n'ktels, we require them all.

I will be able to offer you many times
as much once the Ha'tak arrives.

- You're expecting a mothership?
- You chose your allies well.

Jaffa Ioyal to me are staging a mutiny, as
we speak, aboard a powerful mothership.

Soon they will unite with us in our cause.

A mutiny? That's a little risky, isn't it?

- There are always risks in war.
- But if they fail...

- They will succeed as their cause is just.
- I wish it worked that way.

Then they will succeed
with the strength of their resolve.

Come with me to the Chaapa-ai.
See for yourself. Come.

Nirrti must not learn of our raid.
She would surely hunt us down.

We must cover our tracks.


I chose you to lead this squad
of brave warriors

because I know you will not fail me.

Know that if you are struck down in battle,
you will live for ever in Kheb,

free from Goa'uld oppression for all time.

Fight your way as deeply as you can into
Nirrti's force. Show them your resolve.

- Kalach Shal Tek!
- Kalach Shal Tek!

Victory or death.

- Sir, that's a naqahdah-enhanced bomb.
- He's sending them on a suicide mission.

Jaffa, kree!

Guys, wait a minute!

What the hell are you doing?

- You now see the strength of our resolve.
- I see the strength of your arrogance!

Do not interfere in
what you know nothing about.

- I know exactly what you're about.
- We are at war! It is our way.

I suppose you feel all-powerful to know
how eager those boys are to die for you.

- Their souls are going to a better place.
- I've heard that before.

You would deny the existence of Kheb?

That their souls will find paradise?

What Colonel O'Neill means is,
we do things differently.

Again you say your ways are different.

We should abandon centuries of Jaffa
tradition and follow the ways of the Tauri.

Which of us is arrogant?

If we're to have an alliance,
we have to find a common ground.

Soon the Ha'tak will come, and this army
will be a true force to be reckoned with.

If you wish to ally yourselves
with that force,

then accept us for who and what we are.

If not, then leave us now.


Expect resistance here and here.

Daniel Jackson witnessed the
System Lord Yu being stabbed by Osiris.

With his sarcophagus, he survived.

Still, he was severely
weakened by the attack.

His home world can be taken
if his personal guard can be eliminated.

Now is when Lord Yu
will be most vulnerable.

- Then now is the time to strike.
- Indeed.

I have several Ioyal Jaffa among his court.

Many of his Jaffa would join us
if he were to be struck down.

We could commandeer his fleet.

Ships filled with Jaffa
ready to flock to our cause.

I have dreamed of it
but I never thought it possible.


We're packin' up.
I'd like you to come with us.

(K'tano) His place is here.


K'tano has given me
a mission of great importance.

- I'll bet he has.
- I have accepted this mission freely.

Don't do it.

Lord Yu's Stargate will be unguarded.

The plan is bold enough
to succeed, O'Neill.

More so if you join us.

Can't do it.

(O'Neill) Why him?

Teal'c's participation
will guarantee our success.

Teal'c is a leader in his own right.
You might not want him around.

- He will be one of our greatest warriors.
- If he lives.

- He will succeed.
- Because you say so?

- Because he is Teal'c.
- All right, let me see if I got this straight.

You assassinate one System Lord after
another, take their ships and warriors,

all of whom are willing to die for you.

And this is different
than the way things are now...


- The Jaffa will be free.
- To follow you.

I grow tired of this.

It is time!


I'm not going to recommend an alliance.
Not as long as he's in charge.

- We will speak of this when I return.
- I don't think so.

Because if you do this,
I don't think you're coming back.

When I return victorious,
will you reconsider?

- Tough call.
- Trust in me, O'Neill.

All of you.

Teal'c, you are strong and you are wise.

Upon your return you shall be
my second-in-command.

(distorted) Teal'c, perhaps I am not
as weak as you were led to believe.

My Jaffa has brought you before me
because I wanted it so.

K'tano has sent you to kill me.

Your faith is not blind.
I know this of you.

I am going to offer you your life.

I will even allow you
to return to your rebel army.

But first, there is something
you must know.

O'Neill, will you not reconsider?

As Bra'tac said, we are stronger together.
Can we put aside our petty differences?

I'm holding you personally responsible
for whatever happens to Teal'c.

- Carter, dial us outta here.
- Yes, sir.

Incoming, sir!

- Teal'c!
- What happened?

Thanks for the update.


We have been deceived!


I have deceived no one. The Ha'tak is just
now entering the system. All will be clear.

Lord Yu knows Cal Mah
is the location of this rebel army.

He knows our numbers.
He knows you have betrayed him.

The mutiny on board
Lord Yu's ship has failed.

The Ha'tak you await
brings doom, not salvation!

The System Lords merely bided their time
to root out all rebel Jaffa,

so that they may be crushed
in one all-out attack!

The betrayer has been betrayed.

Joma Secu.

(murmuring amongst men)

- You challenge me?
- Joma Secu!

Very well.

If you intervene,
the challenge will be forfeit.

- Perhaps you think I will spare you.
- This is a fight to the death. Your death.


Is that the best you can do? Hm?

Beg for mercy.

I die free.

You die at the hand of your god...

(distorted) Imhotep.

(distorted breathing)


He is not Jaffa.

K'tano is not Jaffa!

He was a Goa'uld. The Goa'uld Imhotep.

He used the Jaffa's desire for freedom
against them so he could gain power.

K'tano was a lie.
What brought us to Cal Mah is not.

Lord Yu's ship will attack at any moment.

Follow us.

Leave with us if you wish to live!

Follow Teal'c. He speaks the truth.

And he has won the right!
You all witnessed.

K'tano has been beaten in the rite of Joma
Secu! Teal'c is our rightful leader now.

- Carter?
- Way ahead of you, sir.

Leave with us.

Leave with us if you wish to live!

Teal'c, let's go.

Our time will come, old friend.

But not this day.
