Enterprise is in dry-dock getting repaired after it's engagement against Queen Death's flagship.

INT-TAYLOR AND MARTIN'S QUARTERS

John is tossing and turning and sweating as if he's having a nightmare, about the incident on P4X-783 he gets up quick and is sweating as he looks around.

MARTIN
(breathes heavily)
What the hell where am I?

Marcia walks into the bedroom with some tea and sits on the bed.

MARCIA
Hey it's ok John you're safe it's been years since the incident.

John drinks the tea.

JOHN
(Sighs)
It feels like a few days.

She wipes the sweat off his face.

MARCIA
The day that happened I thought you were dead.

JOHN
(Smiles)
I thought I was and that they forgot about me, till the gate dialed and SG-17 came out of it and took me back to the SGC for treatment and recovery.

MASON
(Over Intercom)
Senior Officers report to the bridge, I repeat Senior Staff report to the Bridge.

They get dressed and head to the bridge.

INT-BRIDGE OF THE ENTERPRISE

Colonel Taylor and Major Martin walk onto the bridge.

TAYLOR
(to Mason)
Report?

Mason gets up from the chair.

MASON
We received a distress call from one of our off-world outposts in sector 346,
(Beat)
The Lucian Alliance are attacking.

EXT-SPACE

A fleet of Lucian Alliance Ha'tak motherships are bombarding P5X-847 with their Staff Cannons.

(End of Teaser, Fade out, Starting Credits)

Act One[]

FADE IN

EXT-SPACE

(Notes: Opening Credits fall over opening Scenes)

A hyperspace (Atlantis version) Window opens and the Enterprise emerges from it and approaches a large Allied Fleet of Tau'ri and Jaffa Nation Motherships, and at the front of the ship is the newly constructed BC-305 Athena-Class Warship USS Athena.

INT-BRIDGE OF THE ENTERPRISE

Taylor gets up from her chair in amazement.

MARTIN
That's the Athena isn't?

TAYLOR
Yeah she was put into service after the Ori Crusade, Major give us a run down of her weapons.

Major Mason inputs commands into his console and gives a rundown on the Athena's weaponry.

MASON
6 Asgard plasma beam weapons, 36 Railguns, 24 VLS Missile Tubes Conventional, Nuclear and Naquadah-enhanced (Mark VIII, IX and XI) nuclear missiles. She's armed to the teeth Colonel she could rip through a BC-304 without breaking a sweat.

Sutherland looks at her console.

SUTHERLAND
(to Taylor)
Colonel General's Taylor and Martin are requesting to come aboard.

TAYLOR
(Smiles)
Granted tell them we'll meet them outside the port 302 Bay.

Sutherland inputs commands into her station.

CUT TO:
EXT-SPACE

A C-306 Shuttle enters the port 302 bay and lands as the bay doors closed.

INT-CORRIDOR OUTSIDE THE 302 BAY

Colonel Taylor, Major Martin, and Major Mason are in their dress uniforms, the airlock light goes from red to green.

MASON
PRESENT.....ARMS!

The security officers saluted with their rifles as the doors opened and Generals Taylor and Martin show up.

TAYLOR
Generals welcome aboard.

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
Thanks Colonel we need to speak to the rest of the senior staff in the briefing room by 1400 hours about the gameplan.

TAYLOR
(Nods)
Yes, sir I'll see to it.

They leave the 302 bay.

INT-BRIEFING ROOM

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
For months we've been spying on the Lucian Alliance, to keep tabs on their activities we've had the Odyssey make regular reconnaissance fly-bys of their home planet. When our spies stopped transmitting we assumed he was found out and he had to abort and escape through the Stargate, and he came back to the SGC both he and the Daedalus took pictures of theses.

General Taylor inputs a few commands into the screen and shows the attack of an SG Base and the pictures of the Alliance Home World.

LT GEN. MARTIN
This was an SG base that was used to train our SG teams on how to defend the base from attacks,
(beat)
now it's a wasteland four thousand two hundred lives lost and only one hundred fifty made it before the gate shuts down.

Then General Taylor chimes in.

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
This image was taken about three weeks ago in the very same location. They're building ships. A lot of them.

The senior staff are shocked by this.

TAYLOR
We picked up the distress call but couldn't depart due to being in Spacedock.

LT GEN. MARTIN
Our plan is to head them off near sector 345, the fleet will drop out of hyperspace here to avoid an ambush.

Major Martin chimes in.

MARTIN
How are we going to disable a fleet sir?

The doors open and Kyle walks into the briefing room.

CLARKSON
Hey everyone I have a plan that can give us an edge in battle.

He inputs commands into the MSD in the briefing room.

CLARKSON
I've been reviewing previous engagements by the Odyssey and the Enterprise, and we have to upload a virus into their computer systems to disable the enemy fleet weapons.

Everyone is confused.

MASON
(Scoffs)
A computer virus? Are we forgetting that these are people not Aliens from Independence Day 1 and 2?

Colonel Taylor chimes in.

TAYLOR
No Major we haven't forgotten but we need any edge that can help us against the Alliance.

WILLIAMS
(to Clarkson)
I could give you a hand if you want me to sir?

CLARKSON
(Smiles, nods)
Sure think Chief.

Then Colonel Taylor chimes in.

TAYLOR
We've got less then an hour to get this ship ready for combat,
(Sighs)
let's bring it.

The senior staff leaves.

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
Marcia stay I have an assignment for your ship.

Doors closed.

TAYLOR
What is it?

Sampson looks at James then back at his daughter.

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
(Sigh)
A set of Mark-IX tactical nukes housed in a custom-made weapons platform, code name "Horizon," I ordered your ship to be fitted with it.

TAYLOR
(Shocked)
WHAT!

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
(Sighs)
Marcia this thing is armed with six warheads and four decoys, I'm going to need your chief engineer to do a final inspection on the way there Marcia we need to send a message to the Alliance and this is it.

Taylor paces about.

TAYLOR
(Sighs)
And I was hoping not to use a nuke.

LT GEN. MARTIN
The Apollo used it once against the Replicators in Pegasus and it was effective.

TAYLOR
If I remember correctly Atlantis was forced off Lantea by the Pegasus Replicators.

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
Look, would I have preferred taking out an entire planet at once? Absolutely. But this image is giving the I.O.A. a lot of sleepless nights. The Alliance know the location of Earth, and, with these new ships, have the means to get there. We can't just sit on our hands while the guys at Area 51 try to come up with a solution. Now, this mission's primary objective is to eliminate key military targets. We'll come back and finish once the new weapon is up and running. Marcia, I'm gonna need Chief Williams to start her inspections as soon as possible.

TAYLOR
(Sighs)
Yes, sir.

CUT TO:
EXT-SPACE

Enterprise is in formation with the Allied Fleet.

INT-TAYLOR AND MARTIN'S QUARTERS

JOHN
You alright?

TAYLOR
Yeah.

John sits up.

JOHN
Marcia remember who you're talking to?

MARCIA
(Sighs)
Your father and mine have given us order, to nuke key military targets on the Alliance Homeworld.

JOHN
And you think we shouldn't use the Horizon platform?

MARCIA
(Nods)
Yeah.

INT-ENTERPRISE LAUNCH BAY

Chief Williams stares at the Horizon missile loaded high above her when Major Mason walks into the bay.

WILLIAMS
(Sighs)
Well, the specs check out and we've loaded the target information they're ready. Are you sure that you can handle it?

MASON
(Smiles)
Just give me a target and I'll fire it off.

WILLIAMS
(Sighs, Sadly)
I'll tell Colonel Taylor its ready.

CUT TO:
EXT-SPACE

Enterprise flies through hyperspace.

INT-ENTERPRISE AUXILIARY CONTROL ROOM

Williams checks readouts.

WILLIAMS
All right the Horizon is online the warheads are armed, and we are ready for final sequencing as soon as we drop out of hyperspace.

TAYLOR
(over radio)
Copy that Chief.

INT-ENTERPRISE BRIDGE

TAYLOR
(Into Radio)
As soon as its ready transfer control to Major Mason.

WILLIAMS
(Over Radio)

(Beat)
transferring control to tactical now.

CUT TO: INT-ENTERPRISE BRIDGE

MASON

EXT-SPACE

Enterprise exits hyperspace.

INT-ENTERPRISE BRIDGE

TAYLOR
FIRE!

Mason presses the fire button on his console.

EXT-Low Lucia Orbit Day

The Horizon missile lowers from the opening of the hangar bay. Its afterburner ignites and the missiles fly towards the surface. It breaks through the atmosphere then breaks into separate sections. The warheads separate from the missile and fly to designated targets, exploding on the surface. Atomic clouds in the separate locations fly high into the atmosphere.

INT-ENTERPRISE AUXILIARY CONTROL ROOM

Williams has a regretful looks.

WILLIAMS
(Sighs)
We have detonation confirmation on all six warheads.

INT-ENTERPRISE BRIDGE

TAYLOR
(Into Radio)
John you're a go for launch.

INT-PUDDLE JUMPER CANOPY

MARTIN
(Into Radio)
Copy that.

EXT-SPACE

Martin's jumper flies out of the hangar bay and cloaks as it heads towards the planet.

INT-ENTERPRISE BRIDGE

MARTIN
(Over Radio)
I'm clear, jump away.

Taylor
(Over Radio)
Very well. Pick you up in an hour.
(to Carlson)
Get us out of here.

EXT—LOW LUCIA ORBIT, DAY

[Enterprise flies away and enters hyperspace.]

Act Two[]

FADE IN

EXT-SPACE

Enterprise is in formation with the Allied Fleet after picking up Major Martin from his Recon mission.

INT-ENTERPRISE AXUILIARY CONTROL ROOM

Screen shows the telemetry scans from Major Martin's recon mission, as both Colonel Taylor and Major Martin are with Chief Williams.

WILLIAMS
(Sighs)
There is so much radiation interference, it's hard to get an accurate yield calculation from the scan telemetry.

Then General Taylor walks into the Control Room.

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
Someone, just please tell me if we hit our targets or not?

WILLIAMS
(Annoyed)
Alright, if this data is right…then all of your primaries and most of your secondary's have been incinerated.

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
Excellent.

WILLIAMS
(Sighs)
Huh.

General Taylor leaves as his daughter follows.

SAMPSON
Something on your mind Marcia?

MARCIA
The next time there's a nuke mission I would like to be informed before we arrive to our mission.

They stopped walking.

SAMPSON
Oh so you want to be informed of your mission before you get to it,
(Beat)
this mission was given approval by the International Oversight Advisory Committee Marcia so it really wasn't up to me to inform you.

MARCIA
Dad you know they will respond to this attack.

SAMPSON
(Sighs)
Marcia they won't attack this fleet.

Then the intercom activates.

SUTHERLAND
(Over intercom)
Senior Staff report to the bridge.

They head to the bridge.

CUT TO
INT-ENTERPRISE BRIDGE

Both Colonel Taylor and General Taylor walk into the Bridge.

TAYLOR
Report?

SUTHERLAND
(Off her console)
I picked up a databurst from Lucia to a Commander Kiva, and it's not a social call it talks about a nuclear strike from orbit but was unable to trace it to whoever dropped it.

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
(Smiles)
Well it was designed to be untraceable not even a hunting dog or a wiggyboard could trace it back to Earth.

SUTHERLAND
(Shocked)
Lucia just gave Commander Kiva authorization to attack sector 345.

TAYLOR
(Confused)
What's in sector three forty-five anyway?

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
Just an off-world base on an M-Class planet called P4S-836.

Taylor goes to her chair.

TAYLOR
You might want to inform General O'Neill and have him send SG teams to the planet to evacuate them.
(To Carlson)
set course for P4S-836 Kara.

CARLSON
(Pilot)
Course set and laid in Colonel.

Before she could give the order to engage the hyperdrive her father speaks out.

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
Belay that order Major Carlson.

TAYLOR
(Surprised)
Sir we have to act now before lives are lost.

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
Major Sutherland didn't authenticate the signal as from Lucian Alliance origin,
(Beat)
how do we now it's not a trick to put the fleet out of position?

Then sensors beeping rapidly.

MASON
A hyperspace window has opened and a fleet of Lucian Alliance Motherships have dropped out of it.

Taylor turns to her father.

EXT-SPACE

A fleet of Lucian Alliance Motherships emerge from hyperspace (Atlantis version).

(End of Act Two, Fade out)

Act Three[]

FADE IN

EXT-SPACE

to see the Lucian Alliance Fleet fleet, which stretches so far and wide that it seems capable of engulfing the Tau'ri and Jaffa Nation fleet. ADJUST TO SEE the Tau'ri and Jaffa Nation fleet move toward the waiting wall of Lucian Alliance ships.

Note: The smaller F-302 Jaffa Death Gliders fighters have assumed their positions at the head of the fleet.

INT-ENTERPRISE BRIDGE

Everyone is at their battle stations as the alarm sounds throughout the bridge.

TAYLOR
(Surprised)
Look at the size of that fleet.

MARTIN
I wonder how many ships are in that fleet?

Mason inputs commands into the tactical console.

MASON
(Off his console)
There's at least fifty Lucian Alliance Motherships Colonel.

MEYERS
(Over com)
Cruisers and destroyers slow to half sub-light speed, and maintain general quarters Meyers out.

TAYLOR
(To Carlson)
Half Sub-light Major.

CARLSON
(Off her console)
Half Sub-light aye.

MASON
(Off his console)
We're being scanned.

Everyone tenses up as the fleet is being scanned.

SUTHERLAND
We're being hailed by the lead ship.

Taylor gets up from the Captain's Chair.

TAYLOR
(Sighs)
Let's hear what they have to say
(Nods)
On screen.

The screen changes to the Pel'tak of the lead Lucian Alliance Mothership.

KIVA
(On Screen)
You are the BC-304 Battle cruiser Enterprise, am I speaking to her commanding officer?

TAYLOR
I am Lieutenant Colonel Marcia Taylor Commander of this vessel.

KIVA
(On screen)
Are you responsible for the nuclear attack on my homeworld?

TAYLOR
We were responding to an act of aggression, you were building warships to attack Earth they needed to be neutralized.

KIVA
(On screen)
You killed our leader Netan and you tricked us into a one sided battle with the Ori and now you murdered 1,345 of our people men, women, and children!

TAYLOR
We needed to see if we could fight them in space, guess we were wrong but we can work to achieve peace with our people.

Transmission ends.

MEYERS
(Over Com)
Meyers to attack-fighters, prepare to engage on my command.

A tense, quiet moment as they wait for the fighters to come into weapons range.

WILLIAMS
"Cannon to the right of them, Cannon to the left of them, Cannon in front of them, Volley'd and thunder'd."

CARLSON
(CMO)
(picking up the refrain)
"Storm'd at with shot and shell, Boldly they rode and well, Into the Jaws of Death, Into the mouth of hell... Rode the six hundred."

General Taylor shakes his head.

MAJ GEN. TAYLOR
Don't recite a poem you two it's disrespectful I'll be on the Athena.

He leaves the bridge.

MARTIN
I guess your father is not a fan of poems I'm guessing.

Before she speaks the com activates.

MEYERS
(Over com)
All ships and F-302s and Jaffa Death Gliders break and attack.

CUT TO
EXT-SPACE

The Allied Fleet and the squadrons of F-302 interceptor fighters and Jaffa Death Gliders move in and start firing at the Lucian Alliance Fleet, as the Lucian Alliance fleet opens FIRE on the approaching Tau'ri and Jaffa attack-fighters, The Enterprise fires Asgard beam weapons at one of the Alliance frigates and takes it out of action as it takes hits from two Ha'tak-Class Warships hitting the port side of the ship causing an explosion to erupt from the hit points.

INT-ENTERPRISE BRIDGE

The ship is ROCK by several hits.

MASON
Shields down to sixty-five percent.

Carlson runs her fingers across her console as she turns the steering column.

CARLSON
(Conn Officer)
Coming to course three-one-six mark five-seven-nine increasing to full impulse speed.

The ship is HIT again.

SUTHERLAND
(Shocked, off her console)
Colonel I've lost all contact with the rest of the fleet!

As the ship suffers ANOTHER HIT, Williams runs her fingers across her Engineering console.

WILLIAMS
(Off her console)
They're jamming our signals by generating a rotating E-M pulse.

TAYLOR
Can you clear the signal?

WILLIAMS
I'll try.

TAYLOR
Keep trying Kara.

CUT TO:
INT-ENTERPRISE AXUILIARY CONTROL ROOM

Both Williams and Kyle are working on the virus that will disable the Lucian Alliance Motherships weapons systems as the ship jolts harder and harder as sparks rain down.

WILLIAMS
This would be easier if the ship wasn't taking such a beating by the Alliance fleet.

(WHUMPH!)

CLARKSON
I know but we're on the clock to halt this attack let's......

The console erupts in a huge shower of sparks as both Clarkson and Williams are sent back as coolant vents from the ceiling as Kyle crawls to Williams.

CLARKSON
WILLIAMS!!

He sees that she's in rough shape.

WILLIAMS
No my leg is broken and I think I have internal bleeding as well.

He goes to a console and inputs commands and beams her directly to the infirmary.

CLARKSON
(Into Radio)
Clarkson to bridge standby for virus upload.

As he's working on the console he sees an energy blots from an Al'kesh he presses the button and leaps out of the room as a huge explosion erupts from the energy blot and debris follows him out of the room, as the doors closed and he presses his earwig.
