She was already on her way up the hill from the tremor emanating from up there. She rushed a little more when she heard Daniel yelling for her.

"Daniel!"

She entered to find the scene that lay before her, and while she was exceedingly glad no one was hurt, she was bewildered by the shield in front of her.

"What happened?"

"Fucking numbskull over here touched a symbol he shouldn't have, opened up and popped out, like Shyla's from P3R-636, a flash of light and then there was... that. It's not my side of things. Your job to figure out the sciencey things Sammy."

Permalink

"Yeah, well. See anything that tells you who this is?"

She pokes it with a spare power bar from her tac vest, the bar sizzles, that part which touches it. 

Permalink

"There's the sentence on the wall. There's probably something else somewhere that might make some more sense."

Rothman turns back to the back wall, looking for more clues.

Permalink

There's another inscription on top of the sarcophagus, it is '...- .- / .-.. .- / ... .... ..- ....'.

"So apparently, who ever is in here is named Vo Lo Shuh."

Permalink

"Is that who used to run this temple?"

Permalink

"No, as far as we can tell this was run by a group of Goa'uld called the Mikalson's, there were six of them. This happened when Brogan touched a symbol on the back of that one, owner seems to be Se Phu Ri Li An. Each chair is quite handily labelled. There's an identical symbol on the chair next to it, it translates to Har Met Sis in Goa'uld but I don't know what that means. I've never heard it before. I could try pressing the other button, seeing if that brings down the force shield?"

Daniel crouches behind Ar Sah Go Mor's chair, trying to see if there were hidden symbols, less obvious ones.

Jack comes running into the temple, holding his P90 at ready.

"Daniel! What did you do now?"

Permalink

Teal'c follows behind him, alert, and goes over the room with a quick scan.

Permalink

"Lt Brogan touched a button Jack. Maybe next time you should send someone who knows not to touch my shit in a temple. We're all fine. But Teal'c, I wanted to ask, do you know the word Har Met Sis?"

Daniel briefly removes his glasses to rub at his eyes frustratedly.

Permalink

"Lieutenant, we talked about this. Let the adults do their job. No touchy."

Permalink

"Twins, Daniel Jackson. It is the Goa'uld term for twins."

Permalink

"Well, then, would appear these two are some form of twins. Can't do any harm from my guess."

Daniel touches the other Harmetsis symbol on the chair beside the first, waiting a second before anything happens.

Permalink

The force shield crackles briefly, then lightning strikes start emanating from the edges of it, missing all of the people in the room. It's loud and thunderous. They should run really fast.

Permalink

"Ah! A trap sir, we better get back to the gate, I'll need time to figure out how to bring this down." Sam yells over the noise.

Permalink

"She's right Colonel, we'll do better if we gather our gear and run, we got enough footage to do translation from home."

He gestures to Rothman and Brogan to start gathering gear quickly and safely.

Permalink

Is packing gear and very stressed out by this.

Permalink

Also packing things, pulls Rothman out of the way of one lightning strike just in time.

Permalink

Jack pulls his radio and hurries everyone along.

"Everyone, we're retreating to the 'Gate now! We do not want to see what else this crazy lightning planet has in store for us."

Permalink

Teal'c takes up the rear, making sure nobody is left behind.

Permalink

Daniel, as per his usual bad luck is nicked on the shoulder by a lightning strike, but he is the last through the gate, and they're all home safely enough. He's mildly annoyed at having to run, and being forced to sit in the infirmary, but eventually he is allowed to go back to his office and work.

Permalink

...where he is quickly hijacked and pulled into the meeting room for a debriefing.

"So. What happened."

Permalink

"It was my own fault, I turned around to decipher a phrase on a wall, didn't see the Lt reaching for the first button that brought up the force shield. Then I made the wrong guess with the matching button, I should have thought of the fact that a Goa'uld wouldn't make the obvious off button, that it would be some sort of trick. I put us in danger. But Jack, I promise, using the films we took, I could fix it, I could take down the shield with a little desk work. No danger involved until I'm relatively sure. I promise."

Daniel is beating himself up, even though he's the only one who got hurt, his brain is trying to convince him that it could easily have been someone else, hit somewhere much worse, and it's his own fault. His only hope is to make it worth it, find something important, because there just has to be something important if it's been protected so thoroughly.

Permalink

Jack sighs.

"I'm gonna have a talk with Brogan. He's been warned before, I don't know how he's got to where he is without killing himself."

Permalink

"I think perhaps people are usually better at stopping him from touching the danger stuff. I was distracted, I'm sorry."

Daniel rubs at the furrow of his brow as he is often want to do, showing his frustration.
