George Hammond: Are you telling me that the Aztec Stargate just activated for no reason?
Colonel Fields(On Phone): I have just gotten deep space telemetry, it was dialled from a planet in the Hathos Galaxy, and the list is of personnel that are required to go on an expedition of some sort.
George Hammond: Then an expedition will be setup, Colonel, keep me posted.

George Hammond: Doctor Mckay, take a seat
John Sheppard: One problem Iíve got, since when was this expedition supposed to be run by civilians? I mean this is a military run expedition
George Hammond: The United Nations overrules my decision, a civilian was appointed
John Sheppard: But what the hell are we supposed to do with a civilian running the show?
George Hammond: Iím sorry Major, but there is nothing I can do.
Text on screen: Delta Site, Stargate
John Sheppard: Ok, so lets dial up this gate and get the hell out of here
Elizabeth Weir: Just wait Major, I have a few things I need to say
John Sheppard: Well, hurry up, times a wastin.
[Text on screen: 2 Minutes until Dialling Stargate]
Elizabeth Weir: I know that we may not return for some time, but if you wish to change your mind, please do so now..
John Sheppard: No-one? Righteo, Dial the gate!
[Stargateís inner ring spins]
[General Hammond walks into the Gate Room]

[Stargate Activates and wormhole is established]
John Sheppard: Mckay, Ford, Fall in on me, weíre goin in
[Mckay, Ford and Sheppard walk through gate]
[Text on Screen: Hathos Galaxy, 2 Days After Arrival]

Sheppard: Oh really, well I guess we should unpack
Weir: John, you should take SH-1 and go to the planet we just found
Sheppard: Will do Elizabeth
[Text on Screen: P9X-9KP, Hathos Galaxy]
Sheppard: Well, this place looks too good to be true
[Impressive Shot of Aztec Temples]
Peterson: This looks to be a place of worship
Mckay: Oh really, just state the obvious!
Sheppard: Calm down people, lets just look around and see if we can make any allies here!
Mckay: Hey, theres some people coming
[Sheppard raises his FAMAS, Ford his M4 Carbine and Mckay his MP7]
People: We are the Keigin, Followers of Intec.
Sheppard: Intec ehey
Peterson: You know of Intec?
People: Yes, he is our god
[Armed Men run around SH-1]
People: You are non-believers!
Sheppard: No need to say we donít have a god!
[SH-1 runs to Stargate and dials the base]
[Runs through event horizon]
[Text on Screen: Echo Site, Hathos Galaxy]
[Iris closes when SH-1 runs through]
Carter: You were lucky just then!
Sheppard: Carter! Nice to seeya again!
Carter: Great to see you too John
Sheppard: Ahh, Youíre a full bird Colonel now, congrats
[Sheppard does a shonky salute]
Sheppard: So what brings you to this brilliant place we call a cave?
Carter: Iím here to keep an eye on Mckay, as well as taking a position as commander of the Valiant
Sheppard: So our brilliant mobile base has arrived
Mckay(Over loudspeaker): Sheppard, Weir to the Control Room Immediately
Sheppard: Come join us, Iím sure Mckay would love to seeya
Carter: I bet he would
[Text in screen: Control Room, Echo Site]
Mckay: This is the power level of the base when we came, this is the level now
Sheppard: So what, we turned a few things on
Carter: No, this is draining enormous amounts of power, its almost like a shield has been running for quite some time
Mckay: Or a cloak (Mckay presses button on console) as you can see, this isnít a cave in a mountain, itís a city, a city of Ancient design, only this one has enough ZPMís stockpiled to last at least a million years or more.
Sheppard: Your telling me weíve actually found an Ancient city?
Mckay: Very much so, only this one is massive
Carter: Anything else?
Mckay: Iím about to disable the cloak, there should be a window right there
(Everyone but Mckay moves to where window appears)
Sheppard: This may take some time to explore
Mckay: From what the readout says, it takes one ZPM to power the lighting, another to power the doors and transporters, and the other is for main systems, another three ZPMís keep the city floating here
Carter: We should contact the SGC and tell them what weíve found
Mckay: I agree
[Text on Screen: Stargate Command, Two Days Later]
Hammond: Welcome back, I see you have something for us
Sheppard: Yea, two fully ZPMís, one for the base, the other for Antarctica
Carter: We should brief the president and the IOA as soon as possible
[Lieutenant General OíNeill walks in]
OíNeill: Ahhh, if it isnít the Hathos Trio
Carter: Nice to see you Sir
Sheppard: Indeed, nice to seeya
OíNeill: I see you bring power for the good Ďol Ancient Weapon and the Oriface
[Carter and Sheppard stare at OíNeill]
OíNeill: We do call it that sometimes.. Donít we?
Carter: Anyway, the Echo Site is fully powered and ready to become a full base of operations in the Hathos Galaxy, we still have to explore 90% of the city, and we hope to find shipyards with Ancient Ships, we have already found five Jumper Bays, and we will be sending twenty back on the Apollo, and also put ten on the Valiant for normal Stargate operations
Hammond: Good, I will have you transported to the IOA Building in one hour
[Sheppard & Carter Salute]
[Text on Screen: IOA Building, Washington D.C]
Carter: Mr. President, IOA Members, we recently sent an Expedition to the Hathos Galaxy, and we uncovered an Ancient City, thriving with ships and technology, as well as Zero-Point Modules
Sheppard: The city is fully powered, and has the capacity to hold at least thirty thousand personnel or more
Carter: On the screen you can see the layout of the city, the inner part is what the original city is, the outer part is an addition, like a dock of sorts
Sheppard: With your permission we are requesting ten thousand more personnel for the mission, to be sent through the Stargate at the new ISGC Base
President Hayes: Thank you for he briefing Colonelís, myself and the IOA will no deliberate on the matter
[Text on Screen: Two Hours LaterÖ]
Hayes: We have decided that you can have your ten thousand personnel, the command of those personnel is still to be decided, Lieutenant Colonel Sheppard will be promoted to Colonel, and Colonel Sumners will be bought back to Earth to command the Military Incursion of the Echo Site, Colonel Sheppard will be in command of the Military Contigiant, and Colonel Carter placed in Command of the Echo Site, with Elizabeth Weir as the IOAís representative within the Command Chain.
[Text on Screen: Echo Site, Hathos Galaxy, Five Days Later]
[Stargate is Active and personnel walk though]
Sheppard: This should be the last of them
Carter: ISGC, this is Carter, all personnel are through, we will contact in two days for a check-in, Echo Site out
Sheppard: Lets hope our Aztec buddies donít come say ďHiĒ.
