Around 30 minutes later after collecting all our ammo, weapons and assorted other gear from the SF's who were in line in the Gateroom, Carter and
myself waited patiently on the men coming from the changing rooms with Jacob and the other Tok'Ra, Tolgarn. As the technicians dialed up the
Stargate, i smiled as i was still awed at the beauty of the whole device, with the doors opening i snapped back out of it and saw the men arrive with
the General in tow.
" Alright, this is the plan. Teal'c, Daniel, cover our sixes. Carter, Jackson, take point while i sweep the left flank of trees. Jackson, break form
and find a place up the path for us to hide in, radio its co-ordinates in incase we need to seperate."
" Yes Sir!" we all replied.
As the General wished us well, we all headed up the ramp and through the Stargate onto a very woody plateau where the gate was balanced on a clifftop.
Seconds later we came under heavy fire, all scrambling too the nearest cover we could find we began to return fire and locate how many Jaffa were
firing at us. From my position i could pretty much see a clear view of where the Jaffa were hidden and after firing off a few rounds off to cover
Carter moving, i radioed in to O'Neill.
" Colonel, Jaffa are coming from 2 o'clock, one off them just moved around the furthest tree, i cant see where he went too."
I could hear O'Neill over the radio, i knew he was going around us all to get to the last Jaffa, signalling my reply, i watched for a second and
returned fire to cover Teal'c movement. All of a sudden a staff blast came out of nowhere and hit the Tok'ra square on the shoulder across the path
for me, swining round i fired and took him out with a short burst of rounds to his chest; grabbing my med bag i ran across the path and dropped down
beside Tolgarn. He wasnt moving, checkin his pulse i found it nice and strong, shaking his other arm he stirred, turned over and then grabbed my
" Tolgarn, its me!!" i croaked.
Staring up at me he released me and winced as he moved, hearing the last shot of a staff blast, i knew Teal'c had killed the other Jaffa and was
making his way back to us all.
Helping Tolgarn into a sitting position i looked at his back and winced at the burns covering all his right shoulder, he told me his symbiote had put
up pain blockers and i could proceed in helping him. Pulling out a field dressing, i cleaned off as much dirt and blood as i could without damaging
the tender flesh and strapped on the field dressing, tying it off around his shoulder and chest.
" How does that feel?" i inquired as i watched the others search the local area for anymore Jaffa.
" Better, thank you Lt. Jackson," he replied.
Nodding, i cleaned up the mess of wrappers and washed my hands with the field kit and slammed everything back into my pack, looking over to where
everyone was, i nodded to Jacob who called to me. Heading over i saw they had laid out a plan of the local area the UAV had taken the previous day.
For the next couple of minutes Jacob and O'Neill agreed on a quick route to our destination and we took formation and headed up along the path.
Around six hours later we all wearily arrived at our destination and slumped down on the ground, dawn was fast approaching and we saw that the suns
shadow on the mountain was a deep blue colour, looking at Jacob, he nodded and confirmed that the sun was actually a deep blue colour early in the
morning. After making a campfire and checking Tolgarn's wound again, we all sat around the campfire chatting and waiting on O'Neill, Jacob and
Teal'c coming back from patrol of the area. Finally after about an hour, they arrived back and Jacob could begin explaining the whole background of
the mission in detail.
