Title: Stargate Command- Level 27 - Commanders Office
Post by: Mim on May 20, 2013, 11:45:47 PM
Level 27 is for the most part an extension of Level 28, with the exception of two key areas. The SGC's main briefing room is located on this level, with a large retractable window overlooking the gate room. Here, SGC personnel meet, frequently with the Base Commander, to discuss mission specifics, take part in mission debriefings, or meet with important delegations.

The briefing room contains a large table with seating for up to ten people and an audio/visual unit to display data. A security monitoring system records all events that take place here and a stairwell leads down to the Stargate monitoring room.

The Base Commander's office is attached to the briefing room and a transparent window from the Commander's office opens into the briefing room along with a separate entrance from either the briefing room or neighbouring hallway. The Commander's office has access to all key SGC systems, as well as a phone to the Joint Chiefs (based at the Pentagon) and a special hotline directly to the office of the President.

Just outside the Commander's office is the office of his aide and direct elevator access.

You could here Teal'c's deep voice in the background. "Previously on Stargate SG1"

Within the temple grounds a savage fight went on between the Tauri women and the Hozgura Warlord. Both were cut in so many places, it was inevitable they would die soon enough from their wounds unless one of the reached the Weapon of Eternity.  With all her remaining strength, Cate took one last lunge in a slashing movement. To her surprise Razgul merely stepped backwards, but tripped. That was her moment; she raced for the weapon and activated the four blue panels in a sequence told to her in a dream, which seemed long ago.  The world turned; a great blue white beam shot up from the device; Cate disappeared in a vapor, as did Razgul only his was an inky black. The Hozgura forces finally collapsed and the strangest thing happened, the snow and ice disappeared, to be replaced with lush forests and fields of flowers.

That was the end. The Allies went their own way once again. Some would be enemies again, some would stay allies. Back on Earth now, the Stargate Command counted the butchers bill. More than half their SG teams were gone. The Odyssey, Saggitta and Deadalus, backed up by three of their new small cruisers won the day in the battles above the planet, along with allied ships. But they too, did not escape unharmed.  Every surviving member of the SGC that went to that last fight, was mentioned for bravery. Outstanding names would be remembered, there were simply so many of them. Yet the perplexing thing remained, what happened to Cate? Officially she was listed as MIA, as both her mother and husband, refused to believe she was dead.


***************************

Six months later, July 30th 2011; Admiral Sean Davidson was reorganizing the SG teams. He had a heavy workload and wasn’t in a mood to argue as the newly promoted Captain Robert Hughes asked once again if he could return to the planet and search for clues. Commander Elle McFearson stood behind the young Captain, he had asked her to go to bat for him at some point if the Admiral still refused to let a team go back to the planet. It had been six months and not a single team had returned. Elle was now CAG of the Dreadnought under Sam Carter, and she should be getting back soon; but she did promise Anne MacGregor she would do what she could.

"Sir if I may. It makes sense, we have no idea what happened to Flight Lieutenant Hughes, at least to give the poor boy closure we should give the place the once over." She said respectfully.

Major Fred Rivers
1st Lt Charlotte Summers
SSgt Gary Carter.

The three British soldiers walked in to the Briefing room. Fred and Gary wearing DPM trousers, white T-shirts, boots, the British army SGC polo shirt and leg holsters, Freds with his P-14 and Gary with his P226, an Charlotte walking behind them in full DPM BDU's
"Charlotte, im not having this convocation again, Im not asking the Admiral to put you on my team. I had enough trouble organising My team six months ago when  got SG-twelve."  
"And theres no guarantee he's getting SG-twelve again." said Gary. Fred looked at him.
"I better, I hear the Colonel got T-shirts made." he said sarcasticly. he then looked at Gary and pointed down the stairs before any of them had looked in to the Commanders Office. "Now, Gary, Go to the armoury and convince the Armourer not to get our kit confused with the rest of the SGC, I don't want so yankee yob-o getting his hands on my C-eight thinking its his M4."  he said as Garywalked off down the stairs. Fred then looked at Charlotte.
"Go on, you want to talk to the Admrial." She looked at him and asked quietly.
"You'll be there right?" she asked. Fred nodded.
"Sure, but he probably wont like your died ginger hair. But sod it."  he smiled at her as he patted her shoulder as they walked in to the hall way out side the office. Seeing Commander Elle McFearson in the door way.
"Oh"
"Oh"  
They both said at the same time as they stood outside and waited for them to finish. Fred didn't push Charlotte because she knew she was shy.

Three women walked into the briefing room together; they were so close to one another you would have thought they were sharing secrets or at least sharing a laugh about someone. The latter applied in this case. "He's goot a nice butt doncha thenk?" Ruby said grinning with her broad highland accent coming through clearly. They were talking about the new commander. Ruby hadn't seen him until today; having only just returned from leave. Her injuries had healed nicely and she held a special letter in her hand that had been read a thousand times.

"He does, but I think he has the hots for someone already Ruby girl." Kim told her and then turned to Maria. "When ya'll shippin out Ria?"

"Nice butt? Is that all you two ever think about? There are other assets to a guy ya know." She smiled wickedly and they all laughed. "Straight after the ceremony. I don't know where Sam is taking us, sealed orders I guess. Speaking of Sam has anyone seen her lately?"

The other two shook their heads as one. There was another sigh from Ruby as she watched a young airman go by. Kim had to physically turn her head back.

2nd Lt Timothy “Tim” Foster

Carrie and Mike quietly sneaked in to the briefing room and stood by the door, shadowed by Lt Tim Foster.
The room was beginning to get a bit crowded and the sounds of the people inside of it started to reach a level where a normal conversation soon was about to become impossible.

Mike crossed his arms and leaned towards the wall and within seconds his eyes fell on the tall woman on the other side of the glass in the Commanders office; Elle. When had she’d gotten back to the base? But then again, him being cooped up in the infirmary patching up team members more or less 24/7 made it almost a hopeless task to keep track of her coming and goings. They where lucky if they met once a month nowadays
He felt a nudge on his arm and looked to his right where Tim stood.
“You still dating her?” he whispered
Mike made a small but very much an admitting nod.
Tim chuckled, “You’re an officer and a gentleman Doc; you need to make her an honorable woman.”
Mike rolled his eyes as he whispered back, “Don’t you start as well, got enough nagging from her,” with a nod he indicated Carrie on the other side of him. “We’re adults and we know what we’re doing, so just cut it out, ok?”
Tim held up his hands in defensive gesture, “Oh, touchy are we? Sorry!”

Carrie frowned as she heard most of the conversation between the two men beside her. She’d only known Mike for a few hours before that disastrous attack on the Daedalus half a year back, but it had taken its toll on him. More than he probably knew… or wanted to admit to his boss. You didn’t need to be a shrink to see it; a surgeon could sometimes be just as perceptive.
Absentmindedly, she rubbed the end of the 10 centimeters long scar that now ran from the hairline of the forehead and diagonally back towards her left ear. Coops had been right; those days on board the cruiser had really been a trail by fire. She sighed, the face of her husband Jon when she’d met him in the infirmary of the SGC when things had finally calmed down to a controlled chaos after their return was a moment she never wanted to experience again. The guilt and the sadness and… Oh man, he was a mess too...

She took a deep breath and returned to the present to look at Mike and Tim, “Now behave, both of you,” then added in a less harsh tone, “I don’t want it to look like I can’t control my underlings in front of our CO, ok?”
Mike sighed and Tim grinned and gave her a mock salute in return.
“What the heck am I going to do with you guys?” she mumbled, hoping that none of the other department heads heard her.

Tim straightened up and focused up front where he knew the CO would come out sooner or later.
‘Attached to the medical team of the SGC until further notice’ was his latest order and from previous experience he really appreciated the relative calm this meant… For as long as it lasted and no SG-team came back with yet another virus or fiercely attached alien to some body part.  Yep, enjoy the peace, quiet and dry socks for as long as you can.
Now it they only could find out what they'd all been called up here for? The call had been all to brief.

Mjr Fred Rivers
1st Lt Charlotte Summers

Fred stood there looking at the others in the briefing room. Charlotte looked at him for a second.
"Major, Why dont you want me on your team?" she asked Fred looked at her.
"Because, Umm." he shrugged. "I mean, I." he shrugged again. "I don't damn well know." he said a bit loud, noticing the others in the room had heard him. "Sorry." he said smiling a little as he looked down. He quietened down a little. "I feel like I'll have to watch out for you, I cant do my job and watch you and that Spaz monkey Gary." Fred looked up when he heard footsteps and saw Colonel Sanderson come up, again dressed like him and Gary, with a Glock 17. He realised they all carried weapons apart from Charlotte. he gave the colonel a casual salute. "Sir, what are you doing here?" he asked the colonel shrugged.
"Well, you know, asking about getting an office. You?" he asked crossing his arms. Fred shrugged and pointed at Charlotte

Two women, dressed in otherworldly attire, walked into the briefing room behind the three female SGC officers and chuckled as they overheard their conversation. They may be from different planets, or in one's case a different galaxy, but they knew all too well the attractions between male and female; they were still human afterall. They even found some of the males on this base attractive, but being female warriors, they were too tough to admit it.

"What do you think they'll do with us?" Larkin asked her friend. "We are not part of this world"and can do as they wish to us."

"You have nothing to worry about," Adia assured her. "The Tau'ri are wonderful people and will not harm you. I'm sure they will use us accordingly. We are both strong warriors and leaders and can contribute to any battle."

"My only wish is to get back to the Pegasus and help with that battle. I do not belong in this world."

"I'm sure they have good plans for you, my friend. Trust the Tau'ri as you have come to trust me."

Larkin only looked at her Jaffa friend, wanting to trust these people, something she struggled with all her life; then averted her gaze to the others in the room. She studied them closely and tried to pick out the ones who looked trustworthy enough.

<Commander's Office>

Sean was sitting at his desk, but he wasn't looking at Elle nor at Robert.  Both, he could only presume, were standing at parade rest with Elle just behind Robert.  The past six months found the head of the Stargate Program reorganizing the teams after tallying up the casualties.  Far too many, in his opinion.  Far, far too many.  It was bad enough that his boss - General O'Neill - wasn't too pleased with him, but to add fuel to the fire was the reaction from all three service secretaries.  What made matters worse was that the Secretary of Defense himself promised a top-to-bottom investigation into the actions that led up to that battle, and this time Sean couldn't rely on his rapport with the Secretary of the Navy to bail him out.

The politicians, on the other hand, thought differently.  The IOA felt that the losses were justified, based on all the reports they had received from the various team commanders, ships' captains, and all the way to Sean himself.  Many members of Congress felt that because of the heroic actions - and brave sacrifices -  that *all* of the personnel under Sean's command were to be commended.  Even the President himself concurred with this line of thought.  Sean didn't think it was necessary, as he distrusted politicians in general.  To him, politicians were only out to serve their own self-interests, and with the upcoming elections less than eighteen months away, it was only natural they would want to honor the men and women of the Stargate Program, if only to score points with the voters.

He genuinely hated being caught between a rock and a hard place, especially with little wiggle room to maneuver.  Supposedly, the President and a rather sizable entourage were on their way from Washington to Colorado Springs.  Several high-level officials within Congress were rumored to be in that group of visitors.  So were the three service secretaries and the Secretary of Defense.  Sean didn't know if Jack was also coming, but he knew one thing was for sure: There were bound to be many forced smiles between him, the four secretaries, and possibly Jack.  The secretaries' jobs would be on the line within the next two years if the President didn't get voted back into office, and Sean silently vowed to use that to his advantage.  If he didn't get canned first.

Some motion outside in the briefing room caught his attention, prompting him to look up.  Normally Sean didn't need to wear glasses, but the fine print on the myriad of documents on his desk was a bit hard to discern.  He saw two of the British personnel trying to make their way into his office, and he waved them on in.  Once Fred and Charlotte entered, a fifth person - a baby-faced lieutenant from the looks of him - apologized as he made his way into the admiral's office with a soft "Begging the admiral's pardon, but here are the latest batch of reports you requested, sir", and Sean simply nodded and replied with a "Thank you, lieutenant, that will be all."  It wasn't as if Sean was deliberately ignoring his subordinates, but he still had a *lot* of paperwork to go over.

The combination of eyes staring at him finally got to him, and he sighed as he took off his reading glasses.  Sean leaned back in his chair, squeezing his eyes shut and lightly pinched the bridge of his nose with his forefinger and thumb.  He had already seen the reports regarding Cate's sacrifice, but that wasn't what was bothering him.  Cate was practically family.  She was like a niece to him, and now her husband was standing in his office.  He still wasn't sure what prompted Cate to take such a risk like that, let alone why.

Finally, he lowered his hand and looked up.  At Robert.  "Captain, remind me again why Flight Lieutenant Hughes felt it was necessary to sacrifice herself, even though her actions ultimately gave us the victory.  Mind you, I don't buy into this whole 'destiny' business.  But I'd like to hear your side of the story again before I make a final decision on your request."

The Colonel stood in the doorway as Charlotte stood at Parade rest behind the commander. Fred lent against the wall. it had always been the stance and position he had taken when he was in the room with General Hammond and Colonel O'Neill, then General O'Neill and Colonel Carter, then General Landry and Colonel Mitchell. as he did he lent over to Elle and whispered "What going on?"

Kim and the other two watched Carrie come in with the 'boys'. Maria noticed Mike's glance and chuckled, elbowing both Kim and Ruby as she stood between them. Kim for one had some time back after the war, met with Carrie and she was one of the nurses who attended the Doctors wounds and that of the others who made it back. She felt sorry for Carrie and Mike as well, she knew that Coops was a good friend and to know that his injuries had him medically discharged was a blow to Carrie's team. Losing both legs was never a pretty thing. "I'm going to have a little fun. You two go over and see that Adia and Larkin are doing okay." With that she went the few steps over to Carrie.

******************

Ruby tugged on Maria's arm and went over to the two, what she described as 'teh moost amazin womin' she has ever known. She had met them once or twice since she came back just a few hours ago. Maria knew Larkin from the Daedalus, so they were considered friends. "Hey there girls, glad you came." Maria said to them. "Settled in okay now I guess, I mean it must be hard but at least you have a home now."

"Yeah and a sharin Kim's apartment as well. I hope that soothern lass ain't takin ye doon the wrong path." Ruby chuckled.

*****************

By the time Kim reached Carrie, Mike and Tim. The last she winked wickedly at, she had her line already at hand. "Carrie, glad you came. Boys... them bananas in yer pockets or you just glad to see us?" Her smile was infectious.

When Fred asked Elle what was up, she simply put a finger to her lips and shook her head. Whispering, "You'll find out soon enough." But her gaze was over his shoulder at Mike.

2nd Lt Timothy “Tim” Foster

< Briefing room >

Mike shook his head and growled, “Just grow up will you Kim!” then set course for the coffee machine Davidson’s predecessor had installed in the briefing room. He didn’t have time for this, he had work to do. Mike shoved a mug in to the cup holder and then started to punch the buttons on the machine maybe a bit harder than necessary to get his double espresso, but who cared, not him anyway.

Carrie made an attempt to follow him, but Tim placed a hand on her arm and made a subtle shake of his head “Don’t do it Doc,” then looked at Kim, “His been like this all day but I don’t know why. Fortunately he hasn’t killed anyone yet.”
Tim gave the two women a hint of a smile and a shrug, “Guess that Hippocratic oath is all that’s holding him back though.”

George and Fred shared a glance as Mike started pounding the coffee machine. George gave a little nod and Fred took a breath and walked out of the office and over to Mike. "Hey Mate." he said. "I get it, Better things to be doing. But." he shrugged. "Dont take it out on the Coffee machine ok?" he said. Fred knew it was a chain of command thing. George was the highest ranking person who wasnt the Admerial and Fred Was Georges second so when stuff had tp be dealt with he normaly ended up doing it.

"Ya, this must be the largest briefing I've been too" Roxy said as she began tryna make her way through all the people to the coffee machine. "Coffee? Think we're gonna need it"

"Yeah ta, good idea... three sugars, no milk please. Actually make it four sugars" Tiff followed Roxy, she noticed Rivers next to the coffee maker. "Yo Fred, what's going on?" All she heard was she was to report to the briefing room as soon as... and here she was.

Captain Robert Hughes

<<Commander's Office>>

As the newly minted captain stood in the position of formal rest, hands clasped behind his back, he used his thumb to rotate the ring Catherine had placed on his wedding finger six months ago. There had been a stubborn refusal to believe in her death, but as more and more time passed, he had begun to lose hope that his wife was alive. Perhaps it was selfish of him, but he needed to know for sure.

Elle stood close behind him, and he appreciated her support in this, as he made his case to the admiral. "I know Catherine," he told Sean. "I know what she would do – what she did do – to protect the people she cared about most. And what Catherine did, whether you or I believe in destiny or not, saved lives. Shouldn't we at least find out what became of her? Don't we owe her that much?"

"What's up with him?" Kim snorted. She kind of understood in a way, Lord knows she spent enough time around the Daedalus Medical team these last few months, but she hardly expected that sort of response. Kim shrugged her shoulders in her nonplussed way and simply smiled. She leaned closer to Carrie and Tim. "Maybe he'll perk up when the President arrives......oh crap, I wasn't supposed to say that!" She rolled her eyes as if to say, she wanted everyone to know.

<Admirals Office>

Elle looked at the walls, her feet, anything but the Admiral. Yet she couldn't keep her trap shut either. She looked up finally and said quietly. "He's right you know sir. I think we owe.." At that moment Walter walked in from the outer door,

{CMS Walter Harriman} NPC

"Excuse me sir. The President and his party will be here in twenty five minutes. Everything is set up on level 17 sir." The little man told him. "Sir, I hope all these guys realise it will be dress blues sir."

Charlotte heard Robs thoughts on the situation. And knew about it from what Fred had told her, she took a quick breath and added quietly.
"We dont leave our people behind sir." She looked down knowing the admerial was going to get a right speech about how she should shut up. and ask for permission to speak. If he was anything like Gary led her to belive.

George smiled a little, proud of her. Mainly for not being scared to speak her mind infront of a superior officer. But that might be because George and Fred mainly had a policy of when they were working they wanted input from everybody.

Fred looked at the two other British Officers in the room and shrugged. "I dont know, Im just here to back up Charlotte when she asks to be put on my team." he shrugged a little. "Is it bad if I plan to sabotage it so she isnt on my team?" he asked looking at them leaning against the wall with a hand on the butt of his holstered pistol.

Adia and Larkin looked at Ruby and Maria and smiled warmly at them. Ruby seemed alright to them the few times they met her and they were thankful to Maria for taking them under her wing and teaching them the way of the Tau'ri.

"We are settling in well, thank you," Adia stated. "Kimberly has been a treat to live with and the path has been a good one. It's very kind of her to share her home with us."
"She has been kind enough to teach us of your world,"  Larkin added. "There are so many things to learn."

She moves next to CNO Sutton responding "Hi Kim. Good to see you." She then moves on past several people to ten feet from Kim and comes to stand next to Ruby giving her a big smile nodding responding "Hi Ruby good to see you back up and around. Have I missed anything?"

Bouncy little Spook came in like the whirlwind she was, a quick greeting and Kim could hardly get a word in before she was off again. "Carrie, that was one... of our more entertaining personnel. But I warn you, if she asks you at any time would you like to go on the town, even if its for shopping, politely decline." Kim said with a smile, there was no need to elaborate, a woman can figure these things out. "On the other hand Tim, if she asks you. Please say yes." Kim let out a small laugh.

Speaking to Adia and Larkin was refreshing for both Maria and Ruby. To get a viewpoint of Earth and its doings from someone who has come from so far away, most people would simply not believe it to be true. Maria was about to answer both of them when Ange came over and swept Ruby up in a hug. "What, no hugs for your former CO Spook?" She slapped her on the shoulder. "Adia, Larkin, this flighty young thing is one of our best 302 pilots, even if she tells you herself."

Ruby bid Ange to put her down after returning the hug. "Lass, hev ye bin sleepin oonder a rock or sommit?" She asked, almost bursting out in laughter. "Noot much since yesterday morning when we hed coffee, other than ah've slept, cleaned me blues.."

Putting Ruby down she nods at the two ladies Maria and Ruby had been talking to responding "Hello ladies. Hope these two aren't talking your ears off." She then looks at Maria responding "If you really want a hug I'll give you one but your still higher rank so not about to do anything that will get my LA behind into trouble with everyone in this room."

Looking at Ruby she replies "You know I was talking about up here in the briefing room Rubs. Glad you got some sleep though I just got done from shopping online looking for stuff to get for Lily and the baby." She looks around to see who else she knows in the room.

<Commander's Office>

Sean stood and moved to look out the window that looked down into the gate room.  Robert had a point, Cate definitely saved a lot of lives that day.  Had she failed, chances were that Earth herself would be a war zone by now.  I've only been on the job for six months, he thought to himself, and yet already my command is bloodied.  As much as I don't like the idea of sending people to their deaths, until we get some new recruits in here our forces will be spread thin.  He let out a long exhale through his nose, closing his eyes as he did so.  The other day he had received a personal email from Anne, one filled with emotion.  She had practically pleaded to him to find her daughter.  Anne's maternal instincts told her that her daughter was still alive, but the beam of light from that temple seemed so contrary to her opinion.

To hell with it, Sean thought. Until Robert has some type of closure on this, he'll constantly be at my desk instead of doing his job.  He opened his eyes and turned back to his desk, walking back and sitting down.  He shuffled through the papers until he found the ones he was looking for.

The sets of orders detailing the new roster for SG-9.

"Captain," Sean said, not bothering to look up at him.  "Take command of SG-Nine.  I'm assigning Lieutenants Mercy and Summers to your team, along with Senior Airman Heckman.  Lieutenant Mercy will be your executive officer."  He signed off on the paperwork, then glanced up when Charlotte spoke.  "Lieutenant Summers," he addressed Charlotte.  "Your new set of orders.  You're being assigned to SG-Nine, reporting to Captain Hughes."  Sean handed her the freshly-signed set of orders, then handed the other sets to Robert.

Walter then made his way into the office, letting him know the President was due to arrive in twenty-five minutes.  "Thank you, Walter," Sean said, rising to his feet.  He looked at the British detachment, then took a long look at Colonel Sanderson whom was in the back.  "Colonel Sanderson," Sean said, nodding at the man.  "I understand you're still waiting to find out if you'll have an office.  We'll address that later, but for now we have a VIP arriving.  Have your people in number one service dress, please, then have 'em line up in formation on level seventeen.  And please, don't be late.  You have twenty minutes."

To the others standing in his office, Sean said, "You heard Walter.  The President and his entourage are arriving in twenty-five minutes.  Make sure you're in your dress blues and be in formation on level seventeen in twenty minutes.  Scoot."

To Walter, he said, "Walter, get on the horn and spread the word.  Have everyone in dress blues, then report to level seventeen in twenty minutes.  In formation."

Once his office cleared out, Sean walked out to the Briefing Room and whistled loudly.  Someone heard him and said aloud, "Atten-tion!"  As soon as everyone - save for the civilians - stood at attention, the admiral addressed the room.

"VIP arrival in twenty-five minutes.  Make sure you're in dress blues and everything is in tip-top shape.  Then get to level seventeen and be in formation by the time I arrive.  You have twenty minutes.  Move."  He looked at the two civilians - off-worlders, really - standing in the briefing room.  "I suppose you'll have to come along in your current state of dress.  If you ladies will excuse me for a few moments, I'll need to head back into my office.  The head of our nation will be arriving soon, and protocol dictates that everyone under my command - including myself - dress appropriately for the occasion.  After I get into dress uniform, I'll escort you two myself to level seventeen."

It was a good thing Sean kept at least one freshly-starched and pressed set of service dress blues hanging in his office...

Col George Sanderson
Mjr Fred Rivers
1st Lt Charlotte Summers

Charlotte nodded to Captain Hughes and fallowed the Colonel out to the Briefing room. As the Admerial asked George to get them all in No 1 dress uniform Fred stepped forwards. as he and George spoke at the same time.
"Sir with all due respect."
"Sir with all due respect."
Fred nodded as George carried on.
"Sir, Considering as we don't often wear the No one uniform the Head of the Special forces only had us bring the No two uniform." It was true. It had been decided mainly because the British Ministry of Defence believed it would fit better whilst contrasting with the Airforce blue uniform. Fred then added.
"Sir, I'll look after our off world guests." he said hoping that the Admerial wouldnt have a go at George. Admittedly the MOD had given them the choice on what to bring, But Fred knew that the three of them and Gary only had the No 2.

<Briefing Room>

Donavan, following just behind his single escort, entered the briefing room just in time to hear the call to attention, reflexively moving to the side of the stairs out of anyone's way, his back to a wall as he came upright.  The response was autonomic by now, if it hadn't already been before the Tau'ri training.  As the announcement ended, he reflexively fell into the at-ease posture, hands folding at the small of his back, watching the various gathered faces, all of them completely strangers to him. He'd hoped to see at least one familiar face in this place he'd once called home, and before that, prison.  The irony of the progress of his thoughts curved one corner of his lips, but not for long. 

"Guess it's back up then... maybe you should have called ahead to see if there was even any room."  He wasn't trying to be funny, most of his humor was lost on him anyway, as his dark blues took in the almost standing room only crowd now all filing for one exit or another, waiting for his own escort to figure out where they were headed next.

Major Tiff O'Neill
Captain Roxy Evans

Tiff grinned amused at the other British Major. "Not at all"

Roxy on the other hand, didn't agree. "I'd love to have someone I knew well on my team to be honest" She sipped her coffee. "But it's your prerogative" A smile tugged at her lips but before it could fully blossom Davidson entered the briefing room.

Both woman stood to attention, Tiff did so a little more chilled than Roxy, and listened to what the CO had to say. As soon as he left they relaxed.

"VIP? Who do you reckon it could be?" Roxy said pretty excited.

Tiff shrugged while drinking her coffee. "I'll take a wild guess and say Justin Bieber" She said with a hint of sarcasm. "Not feeling this dress blues though" She exhaled.

Roxy rolled her eyes with a grin.

"Who do you reckon it is?"

She gave it a quick thought. "The President" She said sure.

"Really?" Tiff raised her eyebrows not so sure.

"Wanna make a wager?" Roxy asked with confidence.

"You're on, tenner both ways"

"Deal! We best go" She nearly bounced off with excitement.

Tiff took one last gulp of her coffee, gave Fred a nod and retreated with Roxy.

Captain Robert Hughes

<<Commander's Office>>

Robert rather mutely accepted the papers Sean handed him. He wasn't just assigned to one of the base's off-world units, he was commanding one -- and, like all the SG team commanders, he'd have his own office. He would have to pick up the key from Walter later, assuming that wasn't a need the Chief Master Sergeant had already anticipated. With the President due to arrive inside the hour, it was one of the least pressing things on the man's plate, he knew.

Robert caught Elle's wrist before she could file out. Initially he'd been hopeful but reserved after Catherine's disappearance and, as much as he'd tried to distance himself from his friends, they'd both still been there for him. He'd needed their support, been grateful for it, even if he hadn't necessarily shown it at the time. And now she had done this for him. "I owe you a beer. Mike too."

Now, after six long months, he might actually get some of the answers he was looking for. 

"Lieutenant Summers," he addressed the young British officer the admiral had placed under his command. He didn't know her well, as he'd only worked with her once in a joint operation with SG-4 and 12, and hadn't spoken to her outside of that context. "Walk with me."

"Well thet's it. We doona wanna be late fer that doo we?" Ruby said grinning. She had the advantage, already in her number one blues, looking like a newly minted officer. Something Ruby was so proud of, an immigrant and an officer of the US Air Force and part of the most secret organisation on Earth. Without waiting for her friends, she made a hasty exit for the elevators in the passage behind the Briefing Room.

Maria was well versed in protocol. She smiled and nodded to Adia and Larkin, indicating they should follow the Admirals command and was not far behind Ruby.

"Carrie, you've not met our Prez have you? I mean you weren't here on his last visit.. no wait you were. Big tall dark guy, came to visit you and the others in Med bay not long after you arrived. Sweet man and his wife and kids are sweeter." She said softly. Gone was the bravado of earlier. "Anyways doll, you look sweet as you are.....I"m speaking to Carrie, Mike." She added, then looped her arm in Carrie's.

"I heard that!" Cheryl said to Tiff across the room. "Justin Bieber indeed. I was hoping for Tim McGraw..." She nudged Donovan in the side. "I often get it wrong sir. Not so much the facts but the details. You'll get used to me." That was rather bright of her, Cheryl hoped he didn't think her a ditzy kind of woman, she was in fact quite smart; at least as far as accounting goes. That was her original job at the SGC two years ago, base Accounts Officer. "I'll show you the way." She to, was already in her blues.

"Yessir, immediately Sir." Walter replied and helped himself to Sean's desk pager. It was going to be loud. "ATTENTION ALL STAFF NOT ON DUTY. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO ASSEMBLE IN FORMATION, ON LEVEL SEVENTEEN CONFERENCE ROOM IN TWENTY MINUTES. FULL DRESS BLUES." That would get their attention.

Both George and Fred protested, then George continued by stating that they only had their number two dress uniform.  Sean had no idea why, but he knew it certainly beat what the British detachment was currently wearing.  Sean sighed and nodded. "Very well," he said.  "I'm sure if Her Majesty the Queen were to visit, or any member of the British Royal family for that matter, I'd be asked to wear my full dress whites for the occasion.  But, since this is the President of the United States that's coming to visit, I can get away with wearing the full dress blues instead.  If your number two service dress is all you have, then by all means wear it.  Just don't be late is all I ask."

Fred then said he would look after their guests, and Sean didn't feel like arguing. "Thank you, Major," he said, and with that he retreated back into his office and closed the door.  Once inside, he darkened the window that overlooked the gate room, and shed his service khakis.  Normally he would be clad in his working uniform - similar to the BDUs worn by the other branch services - but he hadn't been anywhere within the last six months except for behind his desk.  Reaching into the small closet, he hung his service uniform onto a hanger, then pulled down his full dress blues and removed the plastic covering that protected them.  It had been freshly pressed and starched, and each of his ribbons and medals were in the appropriate places on his coat, as was his SEAL trident insignia and the Stargate Command insignia.  His all-weather coat he wouldn't need, nor his overcoat as the ceremony was to be held indoors, but otherwise would be kept protected under the plastic covering.

As a rear admiral, part of his full dress uniform included white gloves, gold cuff links, and a cut-and-thrust sword with a half-basket hilt.  His white combination cover had the two rows of gold oak leaf-and-acorn shaped embellishments on the visor, often mockingly referred to as 'scrambled eggs'.  Sean had long since become accustomed to the phrase, but as he was a naval officer through-and-through he had to continually remind himself to ignore the comment from a junior officer or someone from the enlisted ranks.

Once appropriately dressed, Sean closed the closet door, tucked his cap under his right arm and opened the door leading into his office.  Stopping to turn around, he locked his office with a small key then secured it into his coat pocket, then executed a crisp about-face. He looked at the two off-worlders and gave them a courteous smile.  "Ladies, whenever you're ready," he said politely.

"Sir." he said then stepped aside for the ladies. "Ladies, I am Major Fred Rivers and I will be your guide for this trip to the accomodation level." He smiled a little as he started to walk.

George and Fred shared a glance as Mike started pounding the coffee machine. George gave a little nod and Fred took a breath and walked out of the office and over to Mike. "Hey Mate." he said. "I get it, Better things to be doing. But." he shrugged. "Dont take it out on the Coffee machine ok?" he said...

(http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc134/cinnas/RPsignaturer/MikeJ-3.jpg)

Mike shot a glance at the Britt, “No worries sir, just checking its reflexes,” then took his steaming mug and shuffled back towards the rest of the medical team.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/MajorKimSutton.jpg) (http://s811.photobucket.com/user/melanieoz/media/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/MajorKimSutton.jpg.html)
Kim shrugged her shoulders in her nonplussed way and simply smiled. She leaned closer to Carrie and Tim. "Maybe he'll perk up when the President arrives......oh crap, I wasn't supposed to say that!" She rolled her eyes as if to say, she wanted everyone to know.

(http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc134/cinnas/RPsignaturer/CarrieLW.jpg)

2nd Lt Timothy “Tim” Foster

“The president!? Oh crap…” Carrie sighed, spit open her lab coat and looked down at her black, long sleeved tee and jeans, “I’ve got nothing else to wear than what I had when I came to work this morning.What the heck happened to a few days notice?”
Tim shrugged, “Seldom works that way. Probably a security issue or something.” He gave the Doc a head to toe look, “Kim’s right. You’ll do just fine.”


Once his office cleared out, Sean walked out to the Briefing Room and whistled loudly.  Someone heard him and said aloud, "Atten-tion!"  As soon as everyone - save for the civilians - stood at attention, the admiral addressed the room.

"VIP arrival in twenty-five minutes.  Make sure you're in dress blues and everything is in tip-top shape.  Then get to level seventeen and be in formation by the time I arrive.  You have twenty minutes.  Move."

Mike had managed to take a few sips of his black beverage when the call for attention came and with an inward mutter, he placed the mug on the nearest free surface and straightened up.
In the corner of his eye he saw Tim’s even faster response and he did his best to hide a small grin, that boy definitely needed to loosen up a bit.

A minute later and the orders where clear, down to quarters and try to dig out his dress blue, where ever that was. Mike couldn’t even remember when he’d last worn it. Graduation? Some ceremony when a colleague had gotten promoted? Oh well, it was down there… somewhere…
He once again grabbed his mug and started to mill out with the rest of the people when he heard her. He turned around and gave Elle a tired look, “I guess ‘Ok’ is a matter of definition,” waiting for the others to clear the room.

Carrie grunted as she let her self being led away out of the door by Kim, “Please don’t remained me of that.” The side effects of the concussion she’d acquired along with the cut hadn’t been very pretty, especially not on the president’s shoes.   
Tim chuckled, “I’m sure that was an impression he’ll never forget.” He gave them a small nod, “See you later ladies,” and then he took off down the corridor in a sprint, ducking right in the first intersection, aiming for the stairs.

"I don't believe you Mike. You 'will' tell me later." Elle said softly; if there was one thing she was capable of and that was having Mike open up to him. But now was not the time; Elle was on level 25 and she had further to go than most and had to be as quick as she could. "I'll meet you on 17." She said and was off on her long legs.

"Honestly Carrie you look a picture. Mr Bomana and his wife will probably ask you to dinner at the White House." Kim said with that silly smile she sometimes wore. She to was one of the few who had anticipated the arrival and was already in her dress uniform. "I'll be your escort Doctor Svennson if your husband wouldn't mind.

((OOC - Until the person I've asked to take over as Sarah gives me a definitive answer, she'll be an NPC for now.))

Maj. Sarah Devlin - (NPC)

Sean wasn't exactly expecting Fred to escort the two off-worlders to level seventeen; in fact, it seemed that the trio hardly heard him at all by the time he stepped out of his office.  He shook his head.  Offering to look after someone and escorting them aren't exactly the same thing, Major Rivers, he thought to himself.  By this time the last of the personnel had filed out of the briefing room; well, everyone except for Sarah.  She had largely kept out of sight, undoubtedly busy with her own duties now that she was unofficially Sean's new executive officer.  Craig Donovan had been in that role up until recently, and Sean had yet to know for certain what Craig's future plans were.  Rumor had it the man was wanting a position at the Pentagon, and having looked over his service records, Sean wasn't inclined on saying no.

She had obviously knew something was up as Sean caught sight of her in the hallway, already in her dress blues and her hair up in a bun.  Her cap was tucked under her left arm.  Sean knew that Sarah typically eschewed wearing skirts - in fact, he knew she didn't care much for dressing up, period - but the mere sight of her in her dress blues brought a smile to his lips.  Sarah stopped and executed a perfect left-face, came to attention and saluted the admiral.  Sean returned it, then smiled at her which she returned.  "Ready to greet our guests, sir?" she asked, dropping her hand to her side.

 "Yes, Major, but there's one thing left for me to do," he replied.  He stepped over to the table and fiddled with the radio's frequency knob, then once the channel was clear he pressed the transmit button.

"Have all personnel line up in formation for VIP inspection.  Major Devlin and I are en route to greet our guests.  Out."  

With that he pressed the transmit button twice, sending two bursts of static over the channel to signal he was done speaking.  He glanced at Sarah, and she nodded at him.  "After you, sir," she said, waving him towards the door.

Sean nodded and walked out of the room, then once Sarah joined him he closed and locked the door.  She made sure to stay to his left as they proceeded down the corridor and towards the elevator, walking in tandem as their footsteps practically echoed.  It was a brief walk, thankfully, as Sean filed into the waiting elevator car first then Sarah.  She pressed the button for the appropriate level, closing the doors then felt the lift ascend towards the top.

Sean walked into his office and shut the door behind him.  He let out a long, put-upon sigh, indicating his frustration at the sudden turn of events.  It was just like that old adage, "If anything can go wrong, it probably will;" otherwise known as Murphy's Law.  He stepped up to his desk and looked through the rest of the unsigned orders yet to receive his signature.

There.  The only thing lacking were the orders to create the new crisis response team that he'd tried to form six months earlier; he had received a phone call from his old friend Jonesy that he was enjoying retirement, and had no interest in being pressed back into active duty.  Otherwise the other paperwork as all there, and Sean hastily signed them off before exiting his office.

Entering as asked Donovan quickly stepped around the edge of the desk, avoiding the assortment of flags in the corner, and took at-ease once more facing the large desk and chair, the Briefing room door to his right, the hallway door to his left.  He Could still hear someone, that scientist, protesting, and had to smile.  The thinkers always were the first to voice their opinions. 

He glanced once more at the papers he still had, wondering if the Admiral was made aware before hand, or if this would be news to him as much as it had been to Donovan himself.  He had heard another name, Devlin, asked to join them, and idly wondered which one of the new faces that had been.  His memory was good, but he wished he'd had that visual memory trick, being able to see once and remember. 

He adjusted his collar some, glancing around the smaller room, noting very little in the way of personal touch.  He thought about how he would have an office, knowing people would be in and out of it day in and day out.  He'd have as little personal touch as he could, the office was a place of business and serious talk, even if it's heartfelt and confidential.  He recalled the officer's quarters on the Ori bases and ships, spartan, spare, but functional, official.   He gave a mental nod to the approach.  Yes that was just the way to do it.

<<From Briefing Room>>

Sarah still didn't know what Sean was wanting to discuss which was odd.  Normally she could figure out what was going on, but this time he had kept his cards held close to his chest and she was forced to wait to find out with Donovan.  She stepped inside before Sean and nodded at Donovan.

The young woman took a stand on the other side of the door, waiting for Sean to enter.  There had been so much happening in one day that she wasn't sure she was ready for anymore surprises.  For just a few minutes it would be nice for things to run smoothly without any unexpected happenings.

<<From Briefing Room>>

Sean closed the door after Donovan and Sarah entered, and took his seat on the other side of the desk.  He waved them both down, and once they were seated, he opened a drawer in his desk and pulled out a large file.  Along with a small case that seemed to be a standard-size jewelry case that would fit a necklace.  He slid them across to Donovan.  Inside the case were two silver oak leaf pins, signifying the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

"I was told under no circumstances to issue these to you until after you received those orders from Gates, Mister Lee," Sean started to say.  "And while I had no idea you were coming, I received a text message - in private - authorizing me to go ahead and place you in charge of a clandestine unit within the Program.  SG-Six.  Officially, it won't exist.  Not even on paper.  For all intents and purposes, you and your team - your choice, pending my final approval - will be responsible for developing new tactics for all SG teams.  You'll also get to play with the latest gadgets and weaponry, and even come up with your own homebrewed devices.   But when I have to send you and your team to deal with a hard case, or bail out one of the other teams, you'll be free to use whatever force necessary to get the job done.  Even if it means the absolute destruction of an enemy compound, or a political assassination.  I may pair you and Colonel Ovcharenko's team on ops every now and then.  Otherwise, be as creative as you want.  But be forewarned, if you or if any of your team are captured while on a mission, this desk," Sean tapped it with a forefinger, "will claim ignorance and deny that you were even sent in the first place.  At least, I'm willing to lie to whomever.  But know that I'll do everything within my power to get you and your team out alive."

"Any questions?"

Picking up the small case, and glancing inside, Donovan's dark blues sharpened some, and he ran a thumb over the small but significant pieces of metal. The slightest of curves to his lips changed the usual stoic and controlled features, and he raised his eyes to the Admiral as he listed off his plans for this covert unit.  He glanced sidelong to the attractive but apparently capable woman Sean had ordered in with them, assuming she was being assigned the same unit as he, and gave her a slow assessing glance before looking back to the Admiral.

"I know you do not know me, Admiral Davidson.  I know all you probably know about me is what someone told you, or what you read in a file that's more than likely out dated."  He spoke in his usual calm and collected voice but he leaned faintly forward in his seat to emphasize. "I may not fit in, out there,", gesturing up and around indicating the surface, and the civilian world in general, then put his fingertip on the desk in front of him, "But this is what I know.  I will do whatever it takes to keep that, and to keep this facility functioning." 

He paused a moment, rehashing what the Admiral had said, and with a slight rooster to his head to one side, and a faint lowering of brows, "Does this mean I get my Staff back?" referring to the opalescent white staff weapon the Ori soldiers and officers wielded.  Similar in function to the jaffa staff weapon it was the primary staple of the Ori military and the weapon, and it had been confiscated and locked away upon his capture along with his uniform.  Besides the sword, Donovan was most familiar with that staff.  Despite the tau'ri military training, the only other weapons he'd managed to get his antiquated mind wrapped around were hand pistols.

Sean leaned back in his chair, his fingertips steepled as he listened to the newly-reinstated lieutenant colonel.  True, he didn't know the Ori from Adam, but thanks in part to a certain service secretary...Sean was made aware that someone had been improperly dismissed from active duty service, under the pretense of a program being dissolved.  He had no idea of Donovan's capture and time spent on Earth, but it was clear that Gates trusted the man enough to restore his rank, then give the go-ahead to have him placed at the head of SG-6.

"I wouldn't expect any less of you, Colonel," Sean said simply.  But he had to think about what Donovan meant by "staff".  Was he referring to his former team?  Or something else?  He wasn't intimately familiar with the Ori in general, or anything about that particular species...but Sean decided to try a slightly different approach.  "If you're referring to something that was originally in your possession, then by all means, you're welcome to it.  I can only suppose you're familiar with other types of weapons, similar to what I used during my time in the Navy.  My personal favorite is the M4A1 rifle, with the SOPMOD kit and the M-26 shotgun attachment." He grinned.  "I know some like the M-203 grenade launcher, but for pure stopping power, well..."  Sean shrugged.

Sarah sat quietly in her chair and listened to the exchange between the two men.  It was actually quite interesting to listen to.  Donovan seemed to know quite a lot and it seemed to her that he would make a good leader.  Although it sounded like his team was going to be trusted with quite a handful of things.  She just hoped that they were able to stay out of "trouble'.  She caught him glance over at her and gave him a quick nod.

She turned to Sean as he seemed to be trying to figure out what Donovan meant by "staff".  Of course she wasn't positive either as she didn't know much about the Ori.  Although so far she hadn't seen any reason to question Donovan and his motives.  He seemed committed to his assignments.

Finished the Admiral's unspoken statement, "...Like a fist full of plasma in your chest... that staff weapon made me almost an equal of your SG teams back then... Now that I've had some training from  your side, I would be interested to see what I am capable of with it now."  He sat back faintly in the chair, the thumb of the one  hand still rubbing over the bits of metal in their case.  He'd get a uniform after this meeting, requisition a room, already his mind cataloging the steps and events he'd need to accomplish soon as the Admiral dismissed.

"And, to confirm..." his head tilted toward Deviln, "you're assigning her?  How many slots need boots?" using the military term he'd heard used for 'place filling'  "Is there ... a roster I should be looking over or do you already have people in mind I should approach?"  He was obviously not going to be wasting much time settling into the role.  True to form, once he had his orders, that was all he needed, and he took the wheel with both hands.

Sean nodded as he listened to Donovan finish his statement, but laughed when he asked if Sarah was being assigned.  He shook his head. "No, Colonel Devlin is my first officer.  She'll be running the show whenever I'm called away to deal with the bureaucrats in Washington, or have to go off-planet on a diplomatic mission.  Or if the fecal matter hits the fan and I have to assemble a strike team."  A faint, but friendly smile was on his lips.  "I'd probably go with three, maybe four of our best available personnel whom aren't already assigned elsewhere."  He pulled up the personnel roster on his computer monitor, then turned it around so Donovan could see it.

((OOC: It's our current character roster that I'm going off of.))

"This list is how I keep track of who's where.  Obviously, SG-Six isn't on here, as I said it officially won't exist.  But otherwise, you're welcome to browse through the personnel files and decide whom you want on your team.  I tried to get a hold of my old first officer, Lieutenant Commander Roland Jones, but he's busy enjoying retirement."  Sean shrugged helplessly.   "Jonesy was a real piece of work.  Started out as a sonar tech on board the Dallas years ago.  Dunno if you're familiar at all with the Red October incident.  Anyway, after that he put in a request to go through officer candidate school and his captain approved it.  Then he wanted to become a SEAL. He was a part of my unit, and we served together for many years.  Made him my team executive officer after I made Captain, but still kept him on my own fire team."  A trace of wistfulness crept into his voice.  "Anyway, feel free to look this over.  You're welcome to the keyboard," he slid it across the desk and turned it around to face Donovan, "as Colonel Devlin and I have to go over some last-minute paperwork.  Don't worry, you're not interrupting anything crucial.  You can be the SGC's unofficial spy for now.  If there's anything sensitive, Colonel Devlin and I can discuss it later in private."

Sarah was a bit surprised when Donovan asked if she was being assigned to his team, but a smile soon crossed her lips.  It would be interesting.  And she certainly wasn't against it as they may need a good pilot.  But for now she was quite content to be Sean's first officer.  She silently groaned.  "Let's just hope it never gets that bad," she said, referring to having to take over for Sean.

Sarah knew that there was still quite a list of people for Donovan to pick through and she no doubt that he would be able to put a good team together.  She raised a brow though at Sean's next words.  What paperwork was he talking about?  "Sir?" she asked curiously, giving Sean her full attention.  She hadn't been informed of any paperwork that they needed to go over.

Donovan's lips quirked to one side, his equivalent of a smile perhaps, if he didn't try and control his face so much.  He nodded when Sean turned the computer around, one of the few pieces of modern technology that didn't have him completely on his heels. He drew the computer to the edge of the desk as it was pushed toward him and sat at the edge of his chair, a single finger tapping on the down arrow like the keyboard was made of glass, glass that would bite him if he hit it too hard. 

He sat back when the Admiral spoke of being the SGC Spy, a brow quirking.  He hadn't been one for subtlety before, it would definitely be a challenge, but he only viewed it as one more skill to pin to his growing list of merit badges.  He tapped the frame of the computer, "Is there a ..portable copy of this?  I should go get my colors and find a cubicle ... this could take some time ... And .. if I can cross reference with report files ... field reports should be enough...accessing them is standard procedure, and won't raise any suspicion.   I will work under the assumption that the formation of the team as much as it's existence is on a need to know..."

The small PA on the admirals desk buzzed

Quote
{CSM Walter Harriman USAF} NPC

"Admiral Davidson, Major Rivers and SG's eight and twelve have dialed in, they belive SG seven may have been taken through multipul gates, and would like to know if you would like them to Dial in n each new planet, or if you would like them to move faster with out doing dialling in Sir?"

Before Sean could reply to either of them, his PA buzzed and Walter's voice could be heard.  He listened to the message, then looked at Sarah.  "It's not only gotten bad, but may have gone to worse," he quipped.   He then looked at Colonel Lee, then at Colonel Devlin.  "Colonel Devlin, would you be so kind as to go into your office and print out hard copies of the personnel files and field reports for anyone currently unassigned." It wasn't so much a question but rather a stated request.  SG-7 had been taken hostage, of that there was little doubt.  But where?  And was it worth risking having Rivers, Lawler, and their teams jumping through gates without really knowing where they were going first?  The last thing he needed was for part of one team, or for both teams, to mis-jump and wind up on some unknown, distant, and potentially hostile world with zero chance of survival.  Then again, time was of the essence, and there was no telling how much longer SG-7 would be alive.  If they still were.

"Colonel Lee, once you have the files in hand, you may have to make some pretty quick decisions on who you want.  Looks like I'll be sending either you and your team, or SG-Four, on a potential retrieval mission.  If this is as bad as I think it is, I may have to dispatch either the Saggitta or the Dreadnought as backup."

He looked over at the PA and pressed the transmit button.

"Walter, does Major Rivers have a confirmation on the location of SG-Seven?"

Sarah sat up straighter in her chair as the radio blared to life.  Her face paled slightly at the words.  SG-7 was hostage?  And what of the two teams that were following?  Dang it!  This was not good at all!  She quickly turned her attention to Sean.  "Sir," she said with a nod and got to her feet.  She headed for her office to get the printouts that Donovan had asked for.

The young woman returned a few minutes later with the printouts and handed them to Donovan.  She just hoped that things worked out and they didn't lose anyone on this mission.

Sean listened to Walter's reply and thought about it some more.  Nodding at Sarah, he turned his attention back to the speaker on his desk.

*radio transmission to Gate Room*

"Have someone on either SG-Eight or Twelve keep track of where they're going and where they've been.  If they run into trouble, have them go back to their last known good point and then dial in.  I'll send a response team to provide additional firepower.  Otherwise, tell them to keep moving and when they reach their final point, they can dial in and let us know where they are."

Donovan stood when Sarah came back in, giving a single thankful nod and taking the stack of papers.  He remained standing but didn't leave, eager to get started but not so eager as to simply walk out without being dismissed.  He heard both what the Admiral was saying to the com, as well as his words directly to him.  There wasn't much time to review, but he wouldn't just pick random faces that looked good on the surface.  He was too fastidious for that.  He mentally checked the list of what he'd do as soon as the door was opened;

-Requisition room, obtain uniform and quarters assignment.
-Archive room, locate his confiscated gear, if possible. 
           -If not put in order to find it,
          - If found, requisition for retrieval.
-Locate sub-level office, preferably one labeled as 'storage' or simply 'no assignment', to be used for interview out mainstream.
-Cross reference roster with active duty, eliminate under a year of service specifically to SGC.
-Cross reference that shorter list with field report activity. 
-Submit candidate list for interview schedule.

He glanced at his watch on the inside of his left wrist, an analog face without numbers only night glow ticks along the outer edge, another inner ring servicing as a compass in a pinch. It was still early.  If he pushed himself, he could have that candidate list before nightfall.

Sarah had walked back in just in time to hear Sean's commands to Walter.  Oh, this was just getting worse.  She hoped that SG-12 and 8 made it back safely.  Everyone knew at least one person in those two teams not to mention add SG-7 into the mix.  She scrubbed at her face briefly after having handed Donovan the files.  Why did it seem like everything always happened at once?

Sean shuffled through a few more papers on his desk, but realized Donovan was still present.  He looked up.  "That will be all for now, Colonel Lee.  Remain on standby, but otherwise you're free to requisition your gear and start your team building."  He had to keep as many hole cards as he could, since there was no telling when or how SG-8 and 12 would manage to make their way to wherever in the galaxy SG-7 was being held hostage.  Part of him wanted to do something about it, but the responsibilities of his position dictated he remain where he was.

"Colonel Devlin," he finally said to Sarah.  "Page Captain Forster.  Have her report to my office immediately.  Use the intercom on my desk."

Sarah nodded briskly.  She wasn't sure why he wanted Ruby there, but it wasn't her place to ask at the moment.  She just simply moved around his desk to where the intercom was.  She quickly pressed down the transmit button.

Seeing the man had even more to do than he already had done, Donovan crisply saluted and tucked the files under his arm, making sure no obvious labels were showing before setting the other stack he'd brought in with him on the edge of the Admiral's desk, minus the top requisition form he'd need to get his colors.

He paused at the door to regard Sarah, giving her a nod as well.  The woman hadn't looked at him funny, or treated him like he wasn't there.  So far that was at least a step up.  He even gave one of his rare mild smiles, then opened the door and made his way to the hall of records.

Sean made sure to return Donovan's salute as the newly-reinstated L/C left his office.  Well, that was one problem solved.  Now it was a matter of waiting for Ruby to arrive.  He did his best to stay a bit preoccupied, randomly shuffling through this pile of papers or that, but his mind was going back to a certain event that occurred  about eight weeks ago.  Sean hadn't been able to properly deal with that one situation he was accidentally witness to, but witness he was.  It was amusing in some ways, to be honest, as it reminded him of when he and Sarah did their best to keep their relationship a secret, only to have the Secretary of the Navy in his own chair a few hours before.  Narrowed down to its very essence, it was an ultimatum:  Get married, or watch your careers go down in flames.

He didn't think twice about proposing to her.   Never did he doubt he could finally pop the question.  But the circumstances were, in his opinion, weren't favorable and therefore he thought a bit rushed.  But now that Sarah accepted his marriage proposal, and with SECNAV as witness...there was no turning back from that, or the one unresolved issue that now needed to be addressed.

"Have a seat, Colonel Devlin," he said in that calm voice, not bothering to look up.  He knew the door to his office was still open, and therefore would know exactly when Ruby would show up.

Not yet changed into a flight suit, Ruby was still in her dress blues, her breast medal proudly displayed, and it wasn't for her own sake; she wore it more in rememberance of those who had been lost. She had made good time, it wasn't all that far and rather than go via the briefing room, she came by the rear passageway and the back door of Sean's office, it was closed. Maybe he expected her to come the other way, but for the moment Ruby wanted to avoid seeing more people than necessary. She tapped lightly on the door and opened it. "Ye wanted te see me Admiral?" She smiled at her best friend Sarah sitting there, and was pleasantly surprised to see Sarah wearing a rather happy grin on her face.

Sarah watched as Sean shuffled papers.  He certainly had something on his mind.  And she was also curious as to why he wanted to see Ruby.  She was sure it would all come out in time though.  The young woman took a seat, sitting straight.  Hmm, he was hiding something.  She smiled brightly though when she heard her friend's voice.

He certainly wasn't expecting Ruby to come through the back of his office, but as he heard a light tap before the sound of the door open, Sean looked up and turned his head to see the red-haired Scotswoman walk in, all smiles.  Sean, of course, wasn't smiling; in fact he kept his facial expression as neutral as possible to not let his reluctance nor his anger show.  Sarah was now sitting across from him, sitting upright and beaming at her friend.  "Close the door, Miss Forster," he instructed her, his voice still calm.  "And close the other one that's behind Colonel Devlin. Then take a seat next to her."

While waiting for Ruby to comply with his request, he pulled open the top-right drawer of his desk and pulled out his government-issued cellphone, then started tapping through the various menus to find what he was looking for.

Looking first at Sarah and then Sean, Ruby smiled. She knew the man could display a straight face whenever he wanted to; but what men forget so often was that they gave off certain odors depending on their mood or frame of mind and women could detect it clearly. Both of them had something going and somehow Ruby was involved; what that was, could be anything right now, because even Sean's scent wasn't giving off much. But she knew this much, Sarah was happy about something; you don't be as close as sisters as they were without know that. She cocked a fine red eyebrow at the other woman, closed the door lightly and took the chair to the right, allowing Sarah to be closer to Sean on the left.

She tried to see what he was doing, being naturally inquisitive, but failed. So she just sat there grinning and waited for Sarah to take her place next to her. She did have a little quip though. "Whatever it is Admiral, I didnae do it."

Once the door was shut, Sean merely shot Ruby a glance at her off-handed comment.  He let out a heavy sigh, as if not wanting to deal with this sudden burden but he didn't exactly have much of a choice.  He deliberately kept his voice low.  "Alright, you two.  What I'm about to say goes no further than the three of us.  And even though you'll probably want to protest and claim innocence...I'll say up front that I'm willing to cover for you, even though I'm putting my job on the line in doing so.  I know there's been some...personal contact...between the two of you.  By 'personal contact' I mean there's probably been a lot more going on than what's been let on." He looked at Ruby, then at Sarah, then at Ruby again.  "I'm going to dispense with the usual protocol and address the two of you by your first names, and you two are welcome to do the same with me.  This time.  Ruby, Sarah...I don't care what you two do under the sheets with each other every now and then.  That's none of my business.  But know that as long as I'm the head of this program, I can only do so much to shield you from the eventual wrath of Secretary of Defense Gates, or even from the IOA from that matter.  Congress has yet to repeal Dee-Ay-Dee-Tee, and until I have my orders to file charges against the both of you under the Articles of the Uniformed Code of Military Justice, I'm willing to keep your intimate encounters a secret.  But I can guarantee you that by the time I receive those orders and follow through, I'm probably going to lose my commission, or at the very least be given a chance to resign and keep what's left of my honor and dignity intact."

Sean looked at Ruby.  "Ruby, I've come to know you not just as an outstanding officer, but also come to see you as a valued friend.  A close friend.  While you were prepping for your latest post to the Dreadnought, Secretary of the Navy Mobius was in here.  Sitting right in this very seat.  I don't know if you knew that Sarah and I had a rather passionate past, but eventually that was found out.  Mobius gave Sarah and I an ultimatum: Either she and I get married, or both of our careers would be finished.  I've been in love with Sarah for a long time, and she's still in love with me.  But as she and I are trying to renew our relationship, and although it may appear that having you in the picture may only complicate things..."  He looked the red-haired Scotswoman in the eye. "It won't.  Like I said, I don't care if how intimate you get with each other.  That doesn't bother me, so as long as it's just you and her and you haven't been with anyone else.  Just understand that Sarah's marriage to me will always come first.  And ferchrissakes, don't let anybody catch you and Sarah in the act.  If you need some privacy..."

He looked down at his desk, then heard a ping on his computer indicating he had a new message come through.  Sean glanced through it, and fought to keep the sour expression from his face let alone swearing aloud.  Shaking his head, he returned his attention to the two ladies in his office.

"...Anyway.  If you need some privacy, I'm sure Sarah wouldn't mind inviting you over to the house." Sean slid a copy of the real estate dossier of the three-bedroom, five-bath house (http://www.coldwellbanker.com/property?propertyId=2658556&mode=detail&brandType=REN) on Hermitage Drive.  "After I was given after my promotion and made head of Stargate, the government bought this house and ceded it to me.  Overlooks part of the golf course at Broadmoor.  Half of this estate will belong to Sarah after she signs the papers as co-owner.  Ruby, you're welcome to it if you ever need a place to crash for a few days.  If the two of you want some private time together, just make sure that the curtains are shut and you keep it down.  The last thing I need to hear is the neighbors complaining of the noise of two women caught up in the heat of the moment, so to speak.  Or even catching a glimpse of you two sunbathing on the back patio without bikinis, and sharing a lounge chair.  Or if you decide to take advantage of the hot tub.  And don't panic if I happen to walk in on you two, either." He looked at Ruby. "Oh yes, I nearly forgot.  I've heard rumors that you've been admiring me from a distance.  While I appreciate the remarks, please keep them to yourself.  Or share them only with Sarah.  I won't ever divulge personal details of my love life, but I'm sure she has quite a few tales to tell you about my 'ship's mast'.  I'll leave it at that."


He leaned back in his chair.  "That's all I have to say.  Know that I've got your backs on this, but I can only do so much."

Sarah smiled at her friend as Ruby sat down beside her.  Although there was something very wrong here.  Sean was not at all acting like himself.  And he wanted to call them by their first names?  Here?  That wasn't like him at all.  She glanced over at Ruby, wondering if her friend had any ideas.  She didn't think they had done anything wrong or warranting this conversation.  Her eyes widened at Sean's words.  "What..." she started, but trailed off.  What exactly was he talking about?

Sarah frowned slightly.  That was not how she wanted her best friend to find out that she was engaged.  She glanced at Sean.  Was he upset that Mobius had forced him to propose?  Maybe she should have said no and just lost her career.  But he just said he loved her.  Sarah scrubbed at her face.  There was just too much going on that didn't make sense.  She did love the man, but she would have to talk to him later and see just what his true feelings were.

Sarah's face reddened at his words and she looked over at Ruby.  "With all due respect, sir," she said, sitting up straighter.  "Both Ruby and myself know what protocol is.  Neither of us would want to put our careers on the line or expect you to either."

  Sure, her and Sean had hidden their relationship, but they had been younger then with not at much to lose.  They were making things right now though.  Or at least trying to.

Ruby was flabergasted. How in the hell did Sean know? That was one thing she was curious about and she would not rest until she found out either. She was a decent woman and even though for both her and Sarah they did reach out to one another in a time of extreme loneliness and simply seeking a little comfort in one another, the kind of comfort that was more sisterly than sexually related, the kind that only two women would understand. There wasn't much Ruby could say in their defence, anything she did say would most likely be misconstrued so she simply told him. "Ah...we can assure ye Ad...Sean, it ain't goona heppen again, whatever it was we were supposed to have doone." She squeezed Sarah's leg tightly. No one, not even God could foretell what the future may bring. "Yer offer is greatly appreciated, but ah dinna nae thenk it'll be required." She said a little sadly.

((Putting this up now, so I don't forget later.))

An email notification pinged on Sean's computer.

To: Admiral Davidson
Commanding Officer, SGC

From: Matthew Keller
North American Committee Head, IOA

Subject: Personnel Changes

Let me make myself perfectly clear. Keep your people under control. I do not enjoy phone calls in the middle of the night regarding their respective assignments. Therefore, and in light of your recent command decisions, it has been deemed necessary to attach an IOA representative to your base until such a time as we can determine whether you are capable of doing your job. Expect him to arrive later today.

Furthermore, to be effective immediately: Doctor Rodney McKay will report to Dreadnought's new head of science Doctor Daniel Jackson.

Please acknowledge receipt of this message as soon as possible.

Sean listened to what his two subordinates were saying, and while listening he quickly forwarded the email to his unit commanders with the following instructions:

To all SG team leads, Starship Captains -

Anticipate full investigation by IOA representative upon his arrival.  Everything MUST be in tip-top shape.  I expect full cooperation from each of you regarding this matter.

- RADM Sean Davidson, USN, CO SGC


Then he sent a message to Colonel Mitchell, and copied General Caldwell:

Mitchell -

Keep McKay on a tight leash.  If he even so much as crosses the line even ONCE, charge him with attempting to commit mutiny and sedition under Article 94 of the UCMJ, then have him placed in the brig and detain him until the Dreadnought returns to dock.  I just received this letter from Keller, and frankly I'm furious.  McKay thinks he's invincible because he's a civilian contractor, but I'm about to remind him that, per Article 2(a), Section 10 of the UCMJ, even he is expected to obey a direct order that originates from either you, my office, or from High Command as long as he's working with us.

If he's lucky, I'll consider dropping the charges listed under Article 94, and instead charge him under Article 80.  If he's lucky.

- RADM Sean Davidson, USN, CO SGC


Then came the third message, the reply to Keller:

Mr Keller -

While I understand your frustration with being called in the middle of the night, I'd like to note that Dr. McKay called you of his own accord after expressing his concerns over his assignment.  I also would like to point out to you that, in spite of his being a civilian contractor working in the Stargate Program, he is still subject to the Articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, as per Article 2, Paragraph (a), Section 10.  Dr. McKay was given a direct order that originated from the IOA - handed down by me - and he chose to disobey it then lodge a complaint with your office. That, sir, is in my opinion not only reprehensible but completely uncalled for.  I won't go into the full specifics of which Articles he has violated with his acts, but know that, due to my rank of Rear Admiral, I have complete authority to convene a general court-martial and try Dr McKay in a military court should a certain federal agency - not yours, obviously - decide not to intervene and bring charges against him.

I will notify my staff and all team leads to expect the arrival of your representative, and will instruct them to give him/her full cooperation during his/her stay.

- RADM Sean Davidson, USN, CO SGC



Sean then got up from his desk and walked over to the window overlooking the gate room.  Down below, he could see some activity, and adjusted the blinds until they were partially closed.  He could still see out, but anyone down below wouldn't be able to see in.  He clasped his hands at the small of his back, and closed his eyes before letting out a long, silent sigh.  It was bad enough, in his mind, that Sarah would say one thing to him and yet Ruby didn't exactly hide it, but didn't openly admit to having any type of intimate contact.  He tried not to dwell on it, but the tone of voice coming from both women, and the subtle movement of Ruby's arm suggested that she had squeezed Sarah's leg was telling him neither woman wanted to get into trouble for their inappropriate behavior.  Sean understood their quandary; after all, he and Sarah had been caught.  But this was different. That surveillance video he'd been sent was evidence enough to have Ruby and Sarah stand before a summary court-martial.  He himself had sent the order to have that video destroyed, and for anyone else who saw it to immediately disregard it lest he bring them up on charges of insubordination.

His gut was telling him that, in spite of Ruby's claim that her shared moments with Sarah wouldn't happen again, it was bound to happen again sooner or later.  Granted, not even someone like Sean Davidson knew what the future would hold, but God Himself surely did.

It also wasn't his place to judge, in spite of what the Articles of the UCMJ said otherwise.  Yes, he was engaged to one and friends with the other, and was probably going to be accused of playing favorites if it was ever found out.  Yet, if handled just right, the fallout would be minimal.  He turned around and looked at them.

"I'd like to help you two out here," he said statedly.  "I'm not going to pretend I know all of the little details that went on while you two were together at Ruby's house.  I do know that there was supposed to be a security detail on watch," he started, "But that detail was dismissed.  By you, Sarah," he said to his XO.  "There was also supposed to be round-the-clock surveillance, both on the inside and the outside of the house.  I had that inside surveillance ended, by the way, but kept the outside going.  I also placed at least one phone call to Sarah's cell phone, but it went straight to voicemail after ringing four times."  Sean looked at them both, looking to see how either woman would react.  "And while you two can claim that it won't happen again, my instincts are telling me it probably will happen again at some point, especially after Ruby's return from her tour-of-duty aboard the Dreadnought."  He shrugged. "Like I said.  I don't care what you two do behind closed doors whenever no one's looking.  As long as it doesn't create too many headaches for me to deal with, you two can go play feed-the-kitty with each other.  But I strongly encourage you to keep this under wraps, and find someplace private whenever you feel that need.  As far as I know, there's still the hidden cameras and mikes inside Ruby's house, and even though they're turned off..." He left the other part unsaid.  Not that he would order the cameras and mikes to be re-enabled.  "There isn't anything like that at mine and Sarah's," he glanced at his fiancee, "So at least there'll be some privacy."

Sarah was nearly shaking with fury.  Only the subtle touch on her knee from Ruby kept her from losing it completely.  She had done everything she could to help her friend heal and get back on her feet.  How dare someone claim otherwise!  She clenched her fists, trying to calm down.  They hadn't done anything wrong.  There had been a few awkward moments, but that was to be expected.

Sarah narrowed her eyes at Sean.  "I dismissed Daniel because he was not needed at the time.  I had his number and he did come back and help from time to time," she pointed out in a low voice.  There was a lot that Sarah was sure that Ruby wouldn't have wanted Daniel helping with.  Especially with the way that Ruby had been watching Daniel.  She scrubbed at her face.  "I was helping Ruby get cleaned up when you called.  I didn't see a point in tracking water all over the floor."  She wasn't sure why she was defending herself, but Sean had put her on the defense.

Sarah tried to calm down.  "What are you getting at, sir?" she asked, refusing to use his name.  "Do you truly believe that Ruby and I allowed anything to happen between us?  Yes, we're best friends, but nothing more."  How could Sean think otherwise?  he had known her intimately for a long time.

Ruby was livid, it showed in the anger in her eyes and the red blush of her face. Never in her life had she ever been so embarrassed or humiliated. "Before ah totally lose me temper 'Admiral'..." She couldn't bring herself to use his first name at this juncture. "..Sarah and meself acted with complete an utter decency the whole time we were together... ah will tell ye up front, yes we were nekked as babes in tha shower, only because it was necessary, and yes we slept together fer two nights because ah didna nae hev enough blankets...an further more, this intrusion of me privacy is a total breach o trust on the part o the Air Force to hev me place bugged like that!" Now she was angry and she stood from her chair. "Admiral, ah will bloody we sue, ye can guarantee that sir!" She pushed her chair back so violently it tipped over backwards. "Now if'n we hev no further business sir, ah've  a ship to go to."

"SIT!" Sean quickly rose to his own feet and put the full force of his authority into his voice as Ruby rose to her feet, glaring at her.  "You will not leave this office until you are dismissed.  Either of you."  With both women now addressing him as "sir" - Ruby already practically mocking Sean's rank - that alone would have caused the man to summon the SF into his office and escort the fiery-tempered Scotswoman to the brig.  He heard their protests of innocence, and cataloged them in his mind for future reference.

He waited until Ruby sat down, and waited for his own temper to cool off before continuing.  He leaned forward and braced his upper body with his arms, palms flat against the desk.  "The order to have your house under surveillance, Captain," Sean stressed Ruby's rank, "did not originate from this office.  Instead, it turns out that the order to have your house bugged came from someone within the IOA.  I was kept out of the loop for God-knows-why.  Needless to say I wasn't thrilled to learn that two of my officers, my best officers," he looked at both women, "were being watched.  And had that evidence been sent to the IOA, there would be little doubt they would think the two of you were violating the Don't-Ask-Don't-Tell policy."  Sean gestured at his workstation.  "It's bad enough that the IOA is sending an observer to make sure that I'm doing my job because a civilian contractor didn't get his choice of duty and complained to them.  I just got an email from Matt Keller."  Sean turned the workstation monitor around so the two ladies could see the email, then turned it around again after about a minute.  "That observer is expected to arrive later today.  And I can guarantee you one of the questions I'll be asked is why I gave the order to have that internal surveillance shut off.  I know good and well, Captain, that you and Colonel Devlin have a right to privacy behind closed doors.  I've said it before and I'll say it again.  I don't care what the two of you did or didn't do.  Even if it was innocent.  Even if there was a missed phone call that took place two days after the fact," Sean spared a glance at Sarah; "and although I wasn't expecting just how that call was answered, I chose not to do anything about it."

"The fact of the matter remains, Captain, is I'm putting my job, my career, on the line for you.  Both of you." Sean pushed himself off his desk, then sat down.  "By ordering those techs to cease all internal surveillance, I'm inviting even more scrutiny into my life by the IOA.  This isn't the first time I've taken fire for someone under my command.  Nor is this the first time I've been shot at just to keep someone that I care for out of the line of fire.  In this case, it's you two. Had the IOA seen that surveillance video and listened to the audio portion, they wouldn't have thought twice about having the two of you dismissed from active duty service. Let alone have me do the dirty work for them! And that would have been the end of your careers."  He shook his head vehemently.  "As much as you'd like to sue someone, Captain, you won't be able to sue the IOA for a breach of privacy.  Let alone a violation of your civil rights.  Even I can't do a thing about it.  I can only do so much to shield the two of you, just the same as I can only do so much to protect everyone else under my command from those knuckleheads.  But if I have to bear the brunt of the IOA's wrath, so you two can go on with your careers as commissioned officers and not have this on your records, I'll gladly pay that price."

Sean reached down and opened the small desk drawer and fished out a small item, about the size of a quarter.  He set the object on his desk.  It was a broken listening device.  "I have to hand it to the IOA, though.  Their listening devices are very similar to what we used during my time in the SEALs.  Nearly identical to what some law enforcement agencies use, but there's a minor difference that isn't so easy to recognize.  I found this in my office the other day.  I'm sure whomever was listening on the other end is wondering why this isn't working anymore."  He looked at Ruby.  "I can't promise you that we'll be able to spot all the listening devices and hidden cameras that's inside your house, Captain, while you're on your tour of duty.  But rest assured, we'll do everything we can to rectify that problem. But if it's privacy concerns that will keep you from enjoying your shore leave when you get back, and I'd hate to explain the expense reports for an extended stay at a hotel...not to mention there may not be any temporary quarters available at Peterson..."

He just didn't need to say it, but he trusted that Ruby would be intelligent enough to at least take him up on his earlier offer of crashing at his place.
Title: Re: Stargate Command- Level 27 - Commanders Office
Post by: sorra on July 17, 2013, 08:32:56 PM
Sarah stiffened in shock at Sean's raised voice.  What did he have to be upset about?  No one was accusing him of something that he hadn't done.  This wasn't fair at all.  She did remain seated though and hoped that Ruby did as well.  There was no sense in ticking him off even more right now.

Sarah clenched her hands on her lap.  "What would you like us to do, sir?" she asked lowly.  "Everything that happened at the house was innocent.  I was helping Ruby get back on her feet.  I am sorry I missed your call, but what you heard wasn't anything.  It was a shower.  That was it."

She wasn't liking the accusing tone of her fiance's voice.  If it was going to be like this all the time then maybe they shouldn't get married. Not that she wanted to lose her career, but she couldn't live with a man who didn't trust her.  She glanced over at Ruby, hoping her red haired friend wouldn't lose her temper completely.  That would only make things ten times worse.

It suddenly dawned on Sarah what else Sean had said and this only rekindled her anger.  "The IOA?" she nearly shouted.  "What the heck where they thinking?!  What right did they have?"  She was not happy at all.  Why would the IOA want to bug Ruby's house.  "And I do thank you for helping, Sean," she said, actually using his name.  "But I promise you, nothing happened while we were together."

Sean heard Mitchell's voice on the intercom, and immediately he dialed in the proper channel before pressing the transmit button.

<<radio transmission to Gate Room>>

"Mitchell, Davidson.   I'll have Captain Forster come down shortly.  Out."

He pressed the transmit button twice,  sending two bursts of static as his usual means of letting the other person know that was the end of the conversation.  Sean then switched to a different frequency, waited for the chatter to settle down, and pressed the transmit button again.

<<radio transmission to Chaplain's Office>>

"Colonel McCarthy, report to my office.  And bring an unsigned marriage license for the State of Colorado with you."

Sean looked at Ruby, and waited for her to say what was on her mind about the IOA having been responsible for bugging her house, if she would apologize for wrongly accusing him, and whether or not she would take him up on his offer of staying at his place for a few days after she got back.

If Sean had judged Ruby well, he would know that for as much as her seemingly backwards highland manner and heavy speech, she was not a fool; making Captain at barely the minimum age for rank said a lot for her and for her resourcefulness on matters that others wouldn't even begin to think of. "Ye may hev thought ah was angry at ye Sean, ah wasn't. Jest the mere fact ye yerself had any suspicions o what Sarah an I got up to, made me blood boil. Ah will tell ye here an now, even if we did anythin either of us as good Christian lasses wouldnae dream of, unless Sarah talks in her sleep, thet there goes to our graves understand that?" She sat reluctantly as Cam called. "Secondly ah never suspected ye yerself put the hounds on us, ye had no reason to and ah know ye, would stand much more to lose than gain. But ah will tell ye this to Sean. Both Sarah an meself have dual citizenship, we are both still British subjects an as such, Sean we can sue the frakkin arse off the IOA, they hev no jurisdiction over either of us in private affairs, nor has the Pentagon for thet matter. As far as they are concerned, this was a sanctioned medical assistance post for Sarah an it was signed off by both yeself, Commodore Mac and Carrie Svennson...." She grinned broadly. Ruby was finished, she had her five minutes.

The he called Francis..for a moment it didn't sink in. When it did, she hugged Sarah tightly, jumped up and planted a kiss on Sean's forehead. "Bout time ye randy old goat." She whispered to him.

At first Sean had thought Sarah didn't hear him the first time, until she realized just who was behind it.  Again, she insisted that she and Ruby didn't do anything, and even Ruby chimed in saying that, unless Sarah talked in her sleep; whatever happened - or didn't - would go to their graves.  Sean chuckled.  "I won't say that Sarah talks in her sleep," he looked at his fiancee with a teasing grin, "But otherwise, as far as I'm concerned on any official level, it didn't happen.  Period.  The IOA can pry all they want, and while I'm aware that you two have dual citizenship, just remember that the IOA is exactly what it represents.  International oversight.  They'll probably try to use some long-forgotten law still on the books that no one pays attention to anymore, just to try and justify their actions.  Or weasel their way out of a potential judgment against them in a court of law.  And yes, I know I was one of three people who signed off on the medical assistance post."

Sean chuckled at Colonel McCarthy's sarcastic reply, but before he could press the transmit button on his intercom, he was suprised to see Ruby coming up to him and kissing him on the forehead, saying it was about time that he finally found someone to settle down with.  He blushed a little, then nodded.  "Yeah well...I suppose Sarah and I will have to plan a more proper ceremony after this whole IOA investigation blows over.  But I refuse to let them dictate to me whom I can and can't marry, or when."  He looked at Sarah.  "I'll have to make this all up to you later, but at least you and I can officially tie the knot before that rep gets here."  Sean then looked at Ruby.  "The Dreadnought can't exactly leave without its chief nurse.  And Colonel Mitchell knows you're with me. So, I'll do my best to convince Colonel McCarthy to make the ceremony as short as possible.  That way, at least we have one witness."  He pressed the transmit button.

<<*radio transmission to Chaplain's office*>>

"Copy that.  We'll be down in five."

He rose up from his chair.  "By the way, that whole conversation we had, never happened.  It stays off-the-record."  He waved both Ruby and Sarah towards the door.  "Let's go, you two.  Time to pay a visit to our esteemed chaplain."

"Hey!" Sarah exclaimed.  "I don't talk in my sleep."  A smile touched her lips though.  She was glad that things seemed to be settling down at least between the three of them.  The IOA was a whole different matter and she wouldn't put it past Ruby to go to the British government.  Of course, it was foolish what the IOA had done.  It wasn't like her and Ruby had been sneaking around.  Sarah was supposed to be there.

Sarah's eyes widened when Sean called down to Colonel McCarthy.  Now?  They were getting married now?  She was a bit numb as she returned Ruby's hug, but a smile soon touched her lips.  "Oh, you better believe you're going to make this up to me," she teased Sean.  So much for the nice wedding dress that she had hoped to pick out.  Oh well.  Sarah stood up and followed her best friend and fiance down to the Chaplain's.

Sarah glanced toward Sean's office.  She knew she needed to be in there, but this was important as well.  She just hoped that Sean would understand her delay.  And since she was close to his office she could keep a watch on what was going on.

She pulled out her phone and found the last received call she had gotten.  She still didn't know who the woman had been and she hadn't had time to ask Sean, but it had sounded important.  She would see what she could find out now as there was no one else around the office and if she couldn't speak here then nowhere would be safe.  Sarah hit the send button on her smart phone and held the phone to her ear, waiting for the mystery woman to answer.  Not even sure if she would.  "Hello?" she asked as she heard something on the other end.

Sarah was starting to get a bit nervous.  If Sean caught her he would want to know what was going on and she really didn't have an answer for him.  At least not yet.  A slight frown crossed her face as the other woman finally spoke.  "I was a bit," she answered.  "And how did you know that we had a visitor?  Just who are you?"  She wasn't sure she was liking how much this woman seemed to know about the SGC.  It didn't sit right with her.

"There has not been time enough to speak with my husband." she tried to explain.  She had gotten the call just after the ear piercing sound and then Ares had shown up in the Gate Room.  There hadn't been any time to speak with Sean.  Although now she was determined to speak with him.

"At risk?  I do not understand.  Very well. I shall see what I can do.  As soon as I have a moment I will pull him to the side to get that request made." None of this was making any sense to her.  Miss Matthews?  Just who under the sun was this woman?  And why did Sean know her?  There were too many unanswered questions.

<<From Level 28/Gate Room via direct access elevator>>

Sean nodded as he inserted the key into the elevator control panel, the button for the appropriate floor lighting.  As the doors slid shut, he caught the slight smirk on Zypher's face, but said nothing about it.  "Very well, then.  As much as I'd prefer to be addressed by my first name, the traditions of Earth's military forces dictate that the people under my authority address me either as 'Sir' or as 'Admiral.'  I've been known to address my immediate subordinates by their first names, but never around an enlisted person, a junior NCO, or even a junior commissioned officer for that matter.  However, once we're in my office you're free to address me by my first name, which is Sean."  He turned to lean against the side of the elevator.  "And I'll do what I can to represent Earth, although there's far more people whom are more skilled at negotiation than I am.  Otherwise, I'm agreeable to the rest of your terms."

The elevator stopped and the doors opened, and Sean stepped out into the waiting area that formed part of the aide's office.  He opened the door leading to his own office, and waved Ares and Zypher through.

Zypher exited the elevator first, hands still folded behind her, the collapsed bow-caster looking like a metallic folded easel at the small of her back, flat soled boots carrying her into the office and looking over the array of plaques and flags, while Ares gave a slight twitch of one corner of his mouth, "Admiral then... and that would be precisely why I will deal with you directly.  No games, no alluding to secondary motives.  I will speak my mind, and you will do the same... I suspect you dislike talking in circles, Admiral. "

His booted feet made slight 'clump' sounds with each step, giving credit to the weight of both man and armor, as he exited and looked over the desk, then the opposing door, then back at Sean.  His stipulation to address and be addressed by the Admiral prevented any outside influence, such as politicians, lawyers, or the El'Dari who seemed so intent on keeping the Goa'uld from talking to earth directly.  Now was the time for answers, without the veil of secrecy a political liaison would entail.

Sean closed the door to his office, and sat down in his seat across from Ares.  The corners of his mouth turned up in a slight smile when the Gou'ald warlord set the conditions, that the other was free to speak his mind, there would be no games nor hidden motives.  He nodded when Ares thought that he was a man whom hated to talk in circles.  "I prefer to be a bit more direct, Ares," he said, keeping his voice neutral.  "Talking in circles, as you say, are for politicians.  I've had to learn how to deal with politicians for my entire career as a naval officer.  But I'll admit it's not my favorite pastime."  He noted Zypher looking at the various plaques and flags, and he gestured at them with a wave of his hand. "Thirty-four years of military service," he explained.  "Apparently, someone thought I was deserving of those awards.  I was more concerned with making sure that the men under my command came home alive, that we successfully completed our missions.  Many of them while under heavy fire from the enemy." He shook his head.  "Awards are one thing.  Looking into the eyes of the families of those men, seeing their loved ones come home...that to me was far more rewarding than any plaque or award could ever symbolize."

"That shouldn't be hard to remember.  And I will find my husband before then and let him know."  Sarah shivered slightly as she thought about the Gou'ald.  They still gave her the chills and as soon as her phone clicked off she was headed straight for Sean's office.  She didn't want to leave him there alone long.  Plus, she hoped to be able to talk to him soon.

Sarah slipped into Sean's office and walked over beside him.  She gave each person a nod of greeting before standing quietly beside Sean.  "Sorry I'm late," she whispered to Sean.

Zypher slipped almost subtly between Ares' back and the door as it opened from the hall, meeting Sarah almost eye to eye, perhaps a little taller, and with a slight glint in her blue/green eyes. She noticed almost right away the nervousness, and attributed it to being in Ares' presence.  She too was loosely familiar with the antagonistic nature of the history between Goa'uld and Tau'ri, Ares had made it a requirement for the upper echelon of his cabinet. 

Ares watched the Admiral's second take her place, almost mirroring his own Amazon, and a half curve of his lips appeared as more than a twitch this time. 

"I will get straight to one of my points.  I am not from your reality."  He gave a few seconds for that bombshell to sink in before charging ahead, "Where I came from, the Tau'ri were barely managing to maintain their own world, let alone dominating others. The Titan Empire was on the brink of multiple galaxy wide control, with only a few remaining powers to even warrant attention.  I developed technology to allow me, my forces, my world... to traverse the barrier between realities and get away from the conflict that was soon to envelop me." giving another few heartbeats for the ramifications of what he'd done to sink in.

"The El'Dari ambassador that visited my world, essentially told me and my people, that, and I quote 'in three hits', destroyed the Titan Atlas at the height of his power.  I was later shown footage of a line of prisoners, being lead to a device that forcefully extracted their goa'uld symbiote, systematically eradicating my race. When confronted with this, instead of explaining, the ambassador used what I can only assume was some psionic ability, attempting to dampen the emotions of those around, including myself.  In light of my past, you can perhaps see that this had the opposite effect the El'Dari perhaps had sought."

Ares moved to one of the chairs, guaging it's sturdiness, as well as it's size, deemed it suitable, and carefully sat.  The frame groaned faintly but held, and he sat with an upright back and squared shoulders, hands on the chair arms, looking entirely out of place in the modern setting of the office. 

"In essence, the El'Dari are directly responsible for my current animosity toward your world... I came to clarify my findings, directly, before taking any action that would put my people, my world, in jeopardy. " His attention faltered faintly, and both he and Zypher cupped their right ears, and he murmured, "Stand by" His sharp blue eyes remained on the Admirals through his explanation, absorbing any twitch of facial muscles, shift of eyes or posture as he finished with "And now they reposition their vessels along side yours against me..."

Sean nodded at Sarah when she came in, but he frowned as Ares explained his side of the story.  He wasn't intimately familiar with what the Gou'ald warlord was saying; as far as he knew, the first capital ship built by mankind - the Prometheus, if he recalled - was supposedly based on the technology salvaged from a UFO crash somewhere in Alaska in 1978.  Whether or not that was true, the Prometheus didn't launch until 2002, and was active up until 2006 when she was destroyed.  Roughly forty of her crew were lost as a result.  But to hear the man - if he could be called that - sitting across from him claim that he was from another reality was nothing short of ludicrous.  Still, Sean was willing to humor Ares.

According to Ares, the El'dari had destroyed a galactic power known as the Titan Empire, and was later shown a line of prisoners to have their symbiotes forcefully removed.  Sean could only presume Ares was referring to his people as the ones being held hostage, and yet the warlord was trying to implicate the humans of being in league with the El'dari.  Before he could speak in defense, Ares heard something on his comlink, then stared right into Sean's eyes, indicating that the El'dari vessel were currently moving into position next to the fleet.

"I've already given the order to have my fleet on standby, Ares," Sean countered.  "I don't have the authority to give the El'dari that same order, but what I can do is to ask they refrain from any hostile actions."  To follow suit, Sean adjusted a knob on his intercom to change frequencies, and pressed the transmit button.

<<Radio from Commander's Office to Control Room>>

"Lieutenant, contact the El'dari.  Inform them that we're currently in talks with Ares, and ask them not to provoke the Kheron."

He released the transmit button and looked back across the desk.  "The last time I had any dealings with the El'dari was shortly before Asculae Tena.  While I would sympathize with the plight of your people, being forcefully removed from their hosts, what I disagree with is your accusing me - and the people of Earth - of being in league with the El'dari to eradicate the Gou'ald.  Genocide of an entire race or species, and torture of prisoners are two things that I vehemently despise."  He shook his head.  "Yes, I was trained as a special warfare operative.  A man of war, as you pointed out earlier.  Yet the few times I've had to take prisoners, I've made sure they were treated fairly under the articles of the Fourth Geneva Convention.  They were treated with dignity, and ensured they were still allowed to observe their religious beliefs."  A deep, slow breath to calm himself, and he continued.  "I don't know what the El'dari have tried to convince you of, Ares, but I have no quarrel with you, nor do I have any quarrel with the Gou'ald at this time, even though my first attempts at diplomacy with Khnum didn't exactly go very well.  Wouldn't surprise me if he still harbors feelings of resentment towards me, but that's his problem and not mine.  I don't hate him nor do I pity him. As long as he keeps his distance and doesn't try to provoke me into a fight, I'll respect him and his space.  The same goes for you.  I'll be willing to work with you, if you want, in your fact-finding mission to find out what's gotten you so riled up.  I'll offer you my utmost courtesy and respect, and will even put one of my teams at your disposal while you're here."

Sarah stood quietly beside Sean, listening to Ares' story.  A different reality?  Was that possible?  This day just continued to get stranger in her opinion.  Oh, and wasn't Sean gonna be thrilled when she told him about the mystery woman's call later?  What a mess.  She couldn't change that now though.  Instead she just stayed by Sean, letting him take the lead.

Sarah glanced at Zypher.  It had startled her when she had walked in and nearly come face to face with the Amazon.  She wasn't normally one to show emotions, but she knew that the woman had probably noticed her uneasiness.  After the call with the mystery woman and then nearly walking into Zypher, she had been a bit out of joint.  She had gotten herself under control quickly though and ready to help Sean whenever he needed her.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Ares knew his story would sound ludicrous, let alone what he'd described. He glanced sidelong to Zypher who nodded and unhooked a small circular device from her hip, depressing a thumb shaped button along it's side.  Those in the office could hear that static snap and vaccume sound, and Zypher's gloved hand moved into the front of the circle device like reaching into an open bag, vanishing up to mid forearm then returning with a small three sided pyramid made of the same bronze like material the Kheron seemed made of, each corner tipped with a clear crystal.

"For your benefit... from my own records..." Ares said, speaking to Sean as he set a flat side on the front of the desk in front of him.  He then reached to his headpiece tapping small relay buttons along the temple, then his inner right forearm, touching the augmented gauntlet fingertip to the one flat side facing him.  The top point of the crystal began to glow gold, and projected a beam straight up then refracted and fanned out to about a three by three semi three dimensional visual of the pavilion from the Temple of Ares on Aion.

"This is a recording of the visitation of the El'Dari (http://lostworlds.megabytetechsolutions.org/index.php?topic=132.0) on my world..." he explained as the images began to move, a tinny audio accompanying, playing out the arrival of Sunniva and her honor guard, and the festivities of the evening.  Ares and Zypher watched on with blank expressions as the Ambassador described the fall of Atlas.  When Ares left the scene, he reached forward and paused it, looking over to Sean.

"At this point, my world had another visitation.  A society known as Kualpush, their new administrator Kaeth, provided me with the video I described, about the extraction.  I returned to the Pavilion," and resumed the playback, showing his own return, and the Ambassador's theatrical if suspicious and hardly reassuring response and subsequent departure.  The holograph collapsed, and the crystal dimmed.

Sean heard the sound of a snap followed by what seemed to be a vacuum as Zypher removed some type of device from her hip, and pressing a hidden button.  It had to be some type of invisible bag, as Ares' forearm seemed to vanish in mid-air, only to reappear again as he held something in his hand.  A small-three sided tetrahedron, each tipped by a crystal.  Ares set the thing on Sean's desk, and after a few moments, a beam shot straight up from the vertical tip, fanning out to reveal a holographic recording.  The admiral studied it, listening to the tinny sounding audio and silently wishing the quality was vastly improved.  What he saw was thus:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Ares stood straight at the top of the steps, the only one at the level of the Coliseum's raised floor, Discord behind him, thankful she had her veil in place to cover her expression as the true size of these aliens were revealed.  Ares had been a giant among the men and women of Aion and Legion alike, but as this 'elf' approached, she dwarfed the War God by nearly a full foot. Zypher and Melisande, not so lucky to wear a concealing veil or even a hood, couldn't help but stare openly.  Rom and Stern exchanged another meaningful glance, then turned so they faced the rows of gryphons on attention, hiding their expressions that way. 

Ares, to his credit, didn't seem phased by the daunting stature.  He slowly wrapped the communication stone, now no longer necessary, and tucked it into a hidden pouch in the front of the black toga like wrap he wore.  He now felt faintly under dressed, with his bare arms and half his upper body displayed as it was, the El'Dari's full attire disquieted him.  True his own Gryphons were in full armor, and he had some of his finest behind him, but the display of whatever technology these aliens possessed made it's mark more than the aliens themselves. 

He held out hands palm up under scabbard and guard of the offered weapon, lifting it lightly from the woman's grasp and bowing his head over it briefly.  "On behalf of the people of Aion, I welcome you and your delegation, and thank you for your gifts.  He half turned and extended one hand, holding the weapon below the guard as if familiar with such a melee weapon, extending his hand palm up toward the cowled figure behind him.

"My Queen, the Lady Strife, known among us as Discord."  He shifted his extended hand, "Matron Melisande, First Fury... Zypher,  First Amazon... Romulous and Stern, Prime Wolves... "

Sunniva gave another small bow at the introductions, not that she needed to, it simply gave her an opportunity to look more closely at Ares and his people. They were based on Goa'uld society of that she knew certainly; but they were unlike those she had recently had as allies in the war to end all wars. Ares people seemed more noble, and they would on first appraisal have a structure not unlike the Eldari allies of the White Tower back in their home galaxy. She gave each of them a warm smile, warm that is for one known as the Ice Queen; her hands drifted to her cape and instantly a guard was behind her taking it and folding it almost reverently. "It is a wonderful pleasure to meet you all." She said in that lilting sing song voice of her race. "I understand that you have narrowly escaped a calamity elsewhere that brought you here?"


Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Ares saw no harm in being honest at least with this answer, and spoke candidly as his stoic demeanor could. 

"Calamity, impending war, the end of a war... all seeming to come to fruition at once.  We are, as you might have surmised, not from this reality.  Where we came from, an ancient goa'uld known as the Titan Atlas, was making a sweeping effort to corral and control not just the Milky Way, but Pegasus and Celestia as well, though rumor buzzed about the Ori rising once more and sealing themselves off as the Milky Way once was."   He turned and offered a bare forearm in old escort fashion, despite the woman's height. 

"The people have prepared a banquet, come... sit... we can talk more comfortably."  As Ares offered his arm, Discord, Zypher and Melisande formed a three point formation and headed down the steps and along the red plush carpet.  Once more Rom made his whistle command, and all the Gryphons presented arms with a synchronized stomp of their boots.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Sunnivasiggy.jpg)

It would seem they bore more than just a chance meeting in common, at Ares revelation about the Titan Atlas, she took on a feral look, then quickly calmed herself. At the call of the of his Gryphons, Sunniva's guards placed themselves one each in between his men, their ceremonial swords, born in front of them with both hands on the hilt, right foot behind the left; the sound of their boots echoing loudly in unison.

Gracefully the Guardian took Ares arm, and with her free hand she lifted her skirts a little, her head swiveled like a bird of prey to look at him keenly with those icy eyes. "Atlas was killed here by the Tauri, with a weapon our cousins helped developed. Pray that you do not get under their skin Lord Ares, they are not as timid as they once were, be it here or in your reality." She softened her tone. "I will look forward to it and.. I will repay in kind sooner rather than later."

Sean frowned at Sunniva's words.  How was it possible...?  Shaking his head, he focused on the recording again.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Ares led the way down the step and along the long carpeted walkway at a leisurely pace, both to accommodate her state of development, as well as to let her see the pavilion as they moved toward the temple itself.  He spoke in a conversational tone without looking to the female alien at his side.

"All you see, was built by the people of Aion.  Their engineering, their structural skill.  My only contribution was tools and resources."  He brought this fact up for a purpose; firstly because he knew the pension of his race to demand worship, and didn't want this ambassador to assume this temple was his idea, and second, because as they reached the fountain and central square in the center of the temple proper, there was a large gathering of the people not affiliated with the show of military force they'd passed through along the walkway.

"These people, my people, welcome you as I do, Lady Sunniva."  As he spoke, on cue, a trio of elders given the privilege of representing the civilian population came forward, each holding a small gift styled and symbolizing their affiliations a small pewter vase, with a glass flower styled as an Iris, it's long graceful stem and petals in various shades of blues and whites, contrasting with the more earthy reds and blues of the vase itself.  An anvil made of cast bronze, overlaid with a crystalline mold to make it look like the anvil had been frozen in amber.  A plaque bearing a crossed bushel of wheat and a sickle, that when struck with the small leather mallet it came with, gave off a pleasant resonant note.

Discord stood back and to one side with Zypher and Melisande beside and slightly behind her.  Romulous and Stern had taken up positions flanking Ares and Sunniva on their long walk down the carpet.  As the civilian magistrates offered their gifts, and welcomes, the people gathered around the three tier fountain murmured and whispered with an excited buzz.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Sunnivasiggy.jpg)

If it could be said that an Eldari could wear a stunned expression, the look on Sunniva's face told exactly that story. Her memories, if not her own personal experiences spanned millions of years and her former lives had met many a race and quite a few Goa'uld when once her faction had resided in the Milky Way. Her eyes took in every sight and walking at a leisurely pace with Ares and his escorts gave Sunniva a feeling of assurance, that if an alliance could be forged between them, it would be a good one. "I am amazed Lord Ares." She said without reservation.

Yet her amazement did not end there. When they finally reached the Temple Square and the gifts were brought forward, Sunniva's hand went instinctively to her mouth like any woman caught by surprise. She could not help but make a small curtsey to the crowd, something she would only have done as a youngling approaching someone of a much higher station. She turned to Ares and then looked back at the others, her soft smile said everything and so to did the small tear she shed.

"I am among friends." She said as she turned back to the crowd, taking the gifts graciously. "The Eldari are generous friends, we will not forget your kindness and sincerity. May we have peace and friendship for all days." He voice carried across the square as if it had been amplified, a song bird in spring.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Discord drew her hood up and padded forward, raising her hands up and making a beckoning gesture.  On cue, several squadrons of soldiers, not civilians, hoisted long tables, and matching padded benches, and brought them out from inside the temple where they'd been waiting.  The crowed courtyard was soon arrayed with the tables, so that the banquet could be brought out and enjoyed in the open.   Discord addressed the ambassador as the tables were being laid, once more in her goa'uld tones matching Ares.

"Food and meat grown and harvested from the fields below, drink brewed in distilleries on the mountain ranges on the boarders of the hemisphere, cold as space itself.  We invite you and your delegation to join us." 

Ares, once more taking center, stepped up to the El'Dari woman and extended his forearm, to help guide her to one of the tables.  She would probably note, none of the tables were set any different than any other.  Ares would eat and drink at a seat no different than the man who tilled fields or chopped wood. She would probably also note, he didn't drink the ale, only water, but the Prime Wolf Romulous did make an attempt to offer her a fluted cup of sweet smelling mead.

"Made from honey," he murmured, giving a wink as he held out the glass.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Sunnivasiggy.jpg)

Things simply appeared to go from good to better at every turn. Sunniva continued to be impressed at the display and it showed on her face; which at most times showed little or no emotion at all. It normally would take some large event to even have her eyes display an ounce of change; but this from Lord Ares and his people had put her just a little off guard and she was well aware of it to. Inwardly Sunniva adjusted herself and set her level of composure a little more befitting her station. It pleased also that there were no divisions between ranks at table, that was exactly how the Eldari lived; it was obvious they had much more in common. She took a seat graciously and the offered drink.

"We call it mead and I must warn you Lord Ares, the Eldari have a wicked appetite for it." It was true. Yet she was also aware that this light heartedness could not continue, serious issues would have to be addressed soon.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Ares had watched the play of emotions across the woman's face; for all their alien nature, both physically and culturally, in the end she was still a woman.  That revelation he couldn't discern was a good or bad concept.  He glanced briefly to Discord, who smiled her reassurance, and one of his brows twitched.  He knew he'd probably hear all about how well he did at all this pomp and circumstance, but he really didn't want to.  He was more concerned with establishing the fact that he only wanted to be left alone.  One thing the ambassador had said, however, stuck with him, as he sat not beside her, but across from her, still only with a glass of water.

"You said... the Tau'ri defeated the Titan?" He took a slow sip, trying to appear casual, conversational, but his upright posture even sitting belied his comfort entirely.  He wasn't a man of politics and words, he never had been.  He caught the concerned side glance Zypher shot Rom, who simply looked back at her with raised brows as if confused why she looked worried as Ares continued. "Perhaps after these talks with your people have ended, I'll extend the same to them."

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Sunnivasiggy.jpg)

Finally something to have a decent conversation on. Not that Sunniva was a talkative person, rather contrarily she wasn't; unless the topic was something to her heart and the observations she had made since the war of the Tauri's growing assertiveness was a little worrying. While true they were still babes in the woods when compared to Ares and his people and those of the Eldari, babes with knives can still hurt you. She lifted her chest a little, bending as she was and her condition was somewhat uncomfortable even for what others misguidingly called the 'immortals'

"Indeed they did Lord Ares. It was some six months and weeks ago as the 'Children' count. Atlas and his cronies were about to test a weapon out on the galaxies edge, quite a few of his followers were present about his ship. The weapon I believe was something that had we known earlier that the Tauri, we as well would have stopped him, but perhaps not as dramatically as they did." She tapped her chin and took a sip of the wine. "They have built and are building a class of ship they call the 'Dreadnought' larger than anything they have accomplished and as part of the legacy of my cousins knowledge imparted upon them, it would seem the main weapon aboard these ships is most impressive." Sunniva's brow knitted slightly at the thought of these mere infants in galactic terms having such power. "Two shots was all it took to destroy his capitol ship....I believe they were hailed beforehand, that much we can say." She sat back and relaxed. "Perhaps if I may advise, a meeting of mutual benefit may be worthy."

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Those immediately around the ambassador as she spoke went deathly still at this news, Ares and Zypher especially, and their stillness made Rom, Stern and Discord quite noticeably uncomfortable.  All present understood their sudden pallor, and Romulous slowly rounded the end of that table to reach out and touch Zypher's arm. 

"The Atlas of this reality was hardly as entrenched and empowered as the one we came from then.  Lucky for all of you," Discord smoothly interjected, with a disarming smile and a lift of her glass.  Her words soothed Zypher, but not as much as the touch of the Prime Wolf, whom she offered an affectionate hidden smile of thanks.  Ares, however, was not so easily swayed, least of all with the El'Dari's almost warning 'suggestion'.

"That only makes the necessity of contact all the more pressing, My Lady.  Such open hostility, toward my kind no less, would need to be addressed directly.  They would not likely let me alone, even out here with nothing but myself, if this is the case you present.  The Tau'ri of my reality were an ever pressing matter, developing ever more dangerous weapons and technology they were not ready for in an effort to keep in stride with the advancement of the Titan Empire."  The War God slowly rose from his side of the table, and moved to stand near the lip of the temple's edge, heedless of the several mile drop should he misstep.   He stared out the gap between the two planetary hemispheres at the depths of space visible through them, though heavily distorted by the quantum barrier.

"My world and my people are safe here... but for how long?"  He spoke without turning around, and a faint hush had fallen over the revelry at that end of the banquet, hearing his tone.  Ever faithful, Stern had moved with him, and stood like a small red headed shadow just behind and to the left of the giant.  "Have I escaped one line of persecution only to arrive in the middle of another?  Will these Tau'ri be as bad or worse than the Titan Empire I sought to avoid?"  He turned just his head to regard the sitting ambassador. "These are things I would need to know ... and, with all due respect to your generosity and honor, they are things I will need to determine first hand."

Melisande, coming away from the gryphon she'd been standing beside while checking communications, sidled up to Ares and murmured softly, "The Aeire reports activity within our region, My Lord. A vessel arrived.  Mac has stabilized it with a quantum field, but it's captain is requesting direct council."  She turned to bow to the ambassador. "With all due apology for the interruption, Your Grace."

Ares was about to say something, but Discord set her glass down and spoke up first; "Please, do not let this intrusion interrupt these fine first moments.  I will go and see what this is about and if it is dire enough to warrant your direct attention My Lord."  The tightening of Ares' lips was the only indication of his discomfort at delegating, but he knew the more socially capable queen was correct, and gave her a nod of acceptance, his pale blue attention returning to the El'Dari woman.

"Have the Tau'ri treated with you and yours?  Have they dealt fairly?"[/color]  Once again on task, this subject apparently weighed heavily on his current thought process, and he clung to it tenaciously.

To say that Sunniva and indeed some of her guards were a little surprised by the reaction from Ares and his people upon hearing her revelation was too simplified. She herself was almost as shocked as they were, because not knowing the full complexities of exactly how different the various alternate universes were, even though she knew there could be vast differences, still to be so disparate, given the closeness of the history she had already heard; Sunniva thought it would be much the same for the Tauri and other races that shared similar timelines and histories.

To Zypher she looked at directly. There was one misconception she had to dispel. "Atlas came here with his full force and more Lady Zypher. He did not hesitate in trying to and succeeding in forcing worlds to bow to him, or he would annihilate them without pause. He had to be dealt with; he is the reason I am here in this galaxy. It was his aggression across not only here, but Pegasus, Ida and the Alteran Galaxy as well." She took another sip, Sunniva had to admit their 'mead' was as good as the Eldari's. "That it was done by the Tauri does not change the fact. I am sure he was as ruthless here as in your universe." Now to the other matter, or matters. Ares would need to be informed of his own kind here.

"The Tauri will not trouble you Lord Ares, of that you have my word. Let us say for now they are under my tutelage and I do not allow my students to misbehave." Humor from the Eldari? The slight interruption of the news of an arrival didn't faze her at all, she simply smiled and nodded. "Lastly you should know the disposition of your own kind here. While I know there are still many very minor Goa'uld existing, the only major players that have survived recent conflicts are Ba'al, Bastet, Amaterasu and  Morrigan. Of those Bastet was believed killed by Ba'al, but she, like him had been using clones. All of them except Ba'al are in hiding, he still tries to manipulate things from the shadows." There was one more. "To that we come to the lone survivor of Atlas's regime. He is in fact not far from your position here."

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Again, the upper echelon of Ares forces went faintly still, casting glances at one another as Discord pulled up her hood and vanished in a ripple of quantum distortion and the static pop denoting its use.  Stern faintly winced when the queen used the technology to travel, though he knew also it would be impossible to hide such things when indeed the whole of the planet was being held inside out and broken in half by the very same stuff. 

Ares however, took the Lady El'Dari's words entirely differently than perhaps she'd intended and slowly strode back over to the tables.  The look in his eye, and the set of his jaw, had Zypher and Rom squaring their shoulders faintly, though to his credit his voice was still conversationally level.

"I did not bend time and space and indeed reality itself, to hide behind the protection of anyone.  Generous as your offers are, if we... nae, if I, do not stand on my own, then everything I have come here to achieve will be for naught.  You call us allies and friends, and I appreciate and value such concepts, truly, however,"[/i] his brow lowered faintly and his jaw muscle clenched. "I will need to establish myself as a force to be considered, reckoned with, not a minor power to be ignored or worse, taken for granted.  I am honorable, true, but I am also practical.  If these Tau'ri are as potent as you claim, then I would do best to introduce myself with a show of force and capability, rather than on your skirt tails..."

Stern's face tightened in a brief wince, glancing to the ambassador's guards, and Zypher's lower lip was caught in her teeth, but Rom and Melisande were nodding their agreement.  Treaty and trade were all well and good, but to appear weak was not something that would sit well with the War God. 

"Enjoy the remaining festivities, Lady Sunnivia, I have a pressing matter to attend, he gave a tight bow to her, and turned to head into the temple itself and the Fury Gate found within.  Stern glanced briefly to Rom, who gave a sharp nod, but did not move from Zypher's side.  Stern nodded back, bowed to the sitting ambassador, and then turned to hustle after the giant. 

Ares paused the recording, and Sean leaned back in his chair, steepling his fingertips together.  He was clearly in thought, processing everything he'd just been witness to.  The Gou'ald warlord then made the claim that someone came forth with this purported video, upon which he resumed the playback.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Ares walked out of the Temple's main arrival gate in his full golden plate, the crystalline layer refracting the light coming from the exposed core and seeming to glow a vibrant hue with an almost tangible aura of power as he strode out into the open.  Discord and Stern were just behind him, one to either side.  Discord had her hood up but not her veil, and the faint look of unease on her face was a rare sight. 

Across the way, Rom had seen the War God's entrance and the reason for the startled sounds, and patted the air toward the two women before striding over to meet his Lord, murmuring, "My Lord, is something..." but he was cut off and caught off guard as Ares hand closed around the front of his breastplate, and with the single arm, lifted him the few inches off his feet, armor and all, until he was eye level with the taller goa'uld.  His eyes flashed briefly as he held Rom almost nose to nose.

"There is always something wrong, my Prime... but this, is beyond even that..." He straight armed Rom off to one side and lowered while looking across the courtyard fountain at the Ambassador's table, setting Rom's boots on the ground and striding with enough purpose and set to his jaw that her guards would perhaps be a little more than concerned. "When were you going to tell me, that my race was bordering on Extinction, because of the Tau'ri and their allies?  Or was that just something you thought best kept to yourself?"

There was a collective intake of breath, and a few gasps, some people covering their mouths at the accusation in Ares' expression. "War and Death go hand in hand, and so the battle with your reality's Atlas was excusable.  It was apparent he was a megalomaniac in any instance, but how do you excuse intentional genocide?  Capture and extraction and summary disposal of my kind as if we were no more than ticks gathered in the forrest?"  His face was flushed with his barely contained livid state, but he did manage to keep from screaming. 

Rom's eyes went wide, and he glanced sidelong to Stern who only lowered his eyes to the floor as confirmation.  Discord looked past Ares to Zypher and Melisande, who had similar reactions, straightening as if Ares' words had been lightning bolts striking the pair of them.  The whole courtyard was silent after his proclamation, and all eyes were turned toward the El'Dari Ambassador.

"I am extremely happy to have been able to be with you all." Sunniva began her reply. "And please, call me Sunniva, our people have long since dispensed with titles, I hold my leadership merely as the oldest of us and I would happily relinquish my role." It was then more gifts were brought forward and once again she felt that all too human emotion of embarrassment. She took the offerings graciously and bowed her head slightly. "You are all too generous......." It was then Ares returned and what seemed like a peaceful event was shattered.

Sunniva stood, her arm outstretched she called out to Ares. "LORD ARES!" Thunder sounded within the very temple, lightning struck or what seemed like it, flashing within the structure as a swift darkness fell, all for an aura surrounding Sunniva. "Release your anger.........be at peace." Then it changed just as rapidly, a feeling of soft calm fell over everyone, Sunniva had whispered strange alien words and it was as all your inner emotions were totally becalmed.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

There was an instant quiet on the temple step, but it was anything but calm and peaceful. Too many times had Ares been played with, too many times had he and his people been looked down upon, taken for granted, or worse, underestimated. The El'Dari's voice had a quieting effect, but by the posture and expressions on the faces turned her way, it was clear her actions were the wrong ones.

"I see..." Ares murmured. He was visibly blank, as if all that anger had boiled to a snapping point leaving him devoid of expression. Her response was all the confirmation he needed, and he nodded as if to some internal dialog. Half turning, he took a few steps to one side, facing the central fountain, and drew the sword the El'Dari had given him, glanced at it briefly, and then without any warning, suddenly drove it down with a screech of metal on stone, imbedding half the blade in the temple ground, and dropped the sheath beside it.

With a nod from Ares, a stone faced Zypher took the wrapped stone from Ares hand, moved over and placed it gently in among the gifts for the ambassador. The only sound on the pavillion was the wind, and the burble of the fountain.

He didn't rage, he didn't scream, or much of anything else. All the others slowly rose from their seats, and taking Ares' cue, averted their faces from the ambassador. Some even looked slightly hostile as they did it, and when they were all facing away, Ares slowly turned to face her.

"For all your vaunted technology and knowledge, it is apparent you have growth ahead of you yet. Here, we value our freedom of will and choice. Even the lowest among us, has the right and option to voice their concern and values directly to me if need be. What you have just done shows me, and them, that you consider us lesser, and that our values, our opinions, our morals, are beneath yours. The fact that you inform me of the Tau'ri defeating Atlas at the height of his power, and neglect to mention what they did after... only tells me that for all your vaunted age and power, you have no concern regarding races you consider lesser..."

He held up a hand, palm toward her, to forestall any retort, or further use of that voice, and simply shook his head, "I think it time you returned to your home, and considered the outcome of this visit.  You do not leave this place an enemy... but nor do you leave it a confirmed ally.  If any of my people see one of your gates opening on Aion, they will have standing orders form this day forth to attack on sight, and en mass.  Unless you send word and receive confirmation, any visitation of your people will be considered hostile... Until you can prove yourselves capable of dealing with me and mine on an even keep, until you step down off that lofted pedestal you view the rest of us from, I cannot condone any dealings between our people..."

As he finished, the people began milling around, starting to clear the tables so they could be removed and placed back inside the temple proper, while Ares and his upper echelon stood watching the El'Dari and her entourage..

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Sunnivasiggy.jpg)

Icy eyes were filled with emotion, not anger, nor fear, just pure emotion. That Sunniva had acted in haste was not her issue, it was that Ares had not seen her actions for what they were and still will be. "Do not judge me so Lord Ares." She said calmly. "I mean you no harm or your people; you know very well in your heart that if I did, I would not be standing here, nor would you. I came in peace with noble intentions and I shall leave the same way." She moved away from him, clicking her tongue in that strange alien way; her guards immediately stood from the tables and made two perfect lines, turned right and left and marched away from the crowd, standing silently a further away.

"Cherish that sword Lord Ares, it will save you one day. I leave with this final word; peace is hard to come by, there are still enemies who will seek you out, whether you make them notice or not. Beware of the El Aenir." With that another window appeared as before, she began to walk and turned. "My offer is still there, we should not let this minor misunderstanding come in the way of good friendship."

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Ares was the only one looking her direction, and his expression was completely impassive. When she spoke her warnings, he didn't blink, didn't outwardly react, but inside he was already livid beyond response, promoting his outward lack of response.  At her final words his eyes flared briefly and he strode faintly down the red carpet toward the departing entourage. 

"You came here as an envoy to an entire race.  We...I... opened our arms to you...offered our sincere hospitality, our trust, our friendship."  He stopped a few paces away and exhaled shaking his head. "And then you try and hide the genocide of my people... even speak well of those who did it, even suggest I befriend them, when all the while you knew what they'd done. And when confronted on the matter... what did you do?  Did you try and reason?  Did you try and explain?  No... you tried to placate and flaunt your power and treat us all ... treat me... like your lesser...."

He shook his head again and pointed at her exit portal, 'You leave here as you came here, an envoy ... an ambassador... neither ally or enemy ... when your kind is ready to treat me and mine as something more than inferior ... you may contact us and we can see what comes of it." 

With that he too turned back around, waiting for the glow of the portal to subside indicating they'd gone.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Sunnivasiggy.jpg)

Sunniva had had enough of Ares accusations. She pulled herself up to her full height had spoke firmly. "I said the Tauri destroyed Atlas his ship and those who were with him nothing more. To even suggest genocide on their part is an infantile grasp of the facts. Why or how you came to confuse my words to you is beyond me; but know this. Atlas was responsible directly by his own hand of the deaths of billions in this galaxy in the space of a few weeks; do you not think anyone would not be joyed by the knowledge of his death? Any surviving goa'uld to this day is by luck, it has been the work of both Ba'al himself and his Lucian alliance lackey's who have put most of your people who somehow managed to avoid the Ori and replicators before them." Was this what he wanted to know, was this what he tried to force her to tell him? "Lastly, I have spoken to, and entreated you as an equal, in fact by calling you Lord, I have put you above me." That was hard to admit.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Ares didn't turn around as he spoke, even more calm and quiet, which strangely emphasized his level of ire. "The more you protest the more you make my case.  It is best you return to whatever pressing matters you have...if in the future you have a change of perspective that shows you the error of your actions today, by all means, feel free to contact me.  Until then.." his head turned enough to offer a profile, "it's time for you and yours to leave... before one, or both of us, says or does something they regret..." 

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Sunnivasiggy.jpg)

Storm clouds could almost be seen gathering within the building, Sunniva's eye turned so pale blue, even the glaciers in her home world would not look at cold. She stood by her portal, hands by her side in controlled fury. Her voice projected across the vast space. "The only one who is in error Ares is you. I doubt our paths will cross again." With that she turned and led her guard through. The portal snapped shut the moment she was gone.
[/spoiler]

The holograph seemed to fold in on itself, and the crystal stopped glowing.  Sean drew in a deep breath and let it exhale slowly.  "I'm not going to deny anything about the Dreadnought-class capital ships," he said to the warlord sitting across from his desk.  "In fact, we have one currently in operation. Lead ship of her class, on which its classification is its very namesake.  But as for this...Titan...you indicated you had fled from him; or rather, a version of him from your own reality, only to run into him again.  I'll admit that I don't have the slightest clue about alternate dimensions, and up until recently, I dismissed the very notion as nothing but pure bunk.  From what I just saw and heard, Ares, wanting to test a weapon on the edge of the galaxy which who-knows just what it was capable of, but apparently it presented a threat...not to mention Atlas' push to force worlds into submission or destroy them outright..." Sean shook his head emphatically.  "It sounds as if this Atlas was indeed nothing short of a megalomaniac, as you succinctly put it.  So."  He leaned forward, pressing his palms onto his desk.  "First question for you.  Why didn't you confront him yourself, when you had the chance?"

Sarah's posture stiffened as Zypher moved ever so slightly.  This was not the time to show weakness despite the ringing in her ears still.  She managed to keep still though and just watched and waited.  She would let them make the first move.  No sense in jumping to conclusions.  Her eyes widened slightly though as Ares set the little pyramid crystal down on Sean's desk.

The young woman glanced at Sean, wondering what his reaction to everything was.  This was something she had never seen before.  But it was certainly odd and she could understand why Ares felt the way he did.  Sarah listened for Ares answer, wondering why he hadn't confronted this Atlas himself.  Was it something that they needed to worry about now too?

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Ares faintly exhaled and some of his upright posture leaned back into the chair.  Even somewhat expecting this to come up, he didn't relish the answer. His hands gripped the ends of the chair briefly with a creek of gauntlet joints which made Zypher shift her weight faintly, but otherwise stood at his side quietly after retrieving the pyramid projector.

"To fully understand that question, you must understand my origin. The goa'uld have a genetic memory.  Anything the liniage of the parents did, know, or remembers, are passed to the offspring..." held up one index finger, "Unless the queen that birthed it, chooses not to.  This passing of genetic memory is selective... In my case, my parents didn't simply want children...they wanted children keyed to specific tasks... exemplary specimens.  While the queens of the goa'uld can give birth to hundreds at a time, this selective process births only one at a time."

"I do not know if events occurred in your reality as they did in mine, but before the rise of the System Lords, there was the Titan War.  The children of Atok, the Titans, sought to dominate the whole of the goa'uld, their children, the Olympian gods, fought for their own dominance.  Zeus designed me, to be his weapon.  I was born with all of the tactical, strategic lore, and engineering of my age.  My host,"
he gestured at himself, "part of a generational breeding program, designed also to yield the finest... my body was chosen for size, strength, sturdiness... I was born to win a war... and so I did..."

He took a faint breath and glanced to Zypher, then back to Sean, "This was over five thousand years ago... And in the end, I came to the conclusion that if the Olympians, my Father, won this war, it would only happen again, and again, each generation turning on the one before.  So, I threw the final battle, and surrendered myself to Atlas, the last Titan.  Instead of killing me, he kept me, like a trophy, in stasis, while he and his forces went into hiding."

"When the System Lords began to fall from power, Atlas reemerged.  He overpowered, destroyed, or seduced the remaining goa'uld to join him, and began a campaign he'd started during my time; his goal was nothing short of utter and complete domination.  Not just this system or that, this world or that, but whole galaxies. He brought me out of stasis, gave me my choice of Jaffa,"
his gauntleted hand lifted from the arm of the chair to rest against Zypher's arm, "And sent me into the Pegasus galaxy as his vanguard..."

He sighed and ran a hand along the side of his head, leaning forward and upright once more, "Long story short... the Altas of my reality, was unstoppable... by the time I had the technology and power to remove myself from it... he'd conquered not only the whole of Pegasus, but had a beachhead in the Celestus galaxy, and only two minor lords opposing him ...neither of which would last more than a single skirmish... his fleets numbered in the thousands, his troops in the several billions... resources from three galaxies pooled into a single, unflinching siege engine ... So, you can perhaps understand why, when I'm told the tau'ri defeated him at the height of his power here... it would make me a touch on the wary side..."

Sean leaned back in his chair again as Ares explained more of his side of the story.  The Gou'ald warlord mentioned there was some sort of Titan War; to Sean, it was nothing more than ancient Greek mythology.  He was familiar enough with the stories, having studied a bit of Greek history, but never thought there were actually Greek gods and goddesses, let alone the Titans.  It was rather fitting, then, that this Gou'ald would choose the Greek god of war as his name.  Ares.  Also known as Mars to the ancient Romans; from which the fourth planet of the solar system got its name.  Red, like Ares.  Of course, the whole ancient Greek society collapsed millenia ago after Rome had conquered it, which lined up perfectly with the Gou'ald's version of human history.  But why would Ares come up with such a conclusion that war would be perpetual, and therefore offer himself up as a willing hostage?  That didn't make sense at all.

The warlord continued.  Atlas decided to emerge from power after the System Lords started to falter, and the Titan began a quest of complete and utter domination.  Internal stife between factions was nothing new to Sean; he'd also read about that from history.  In return for his complicity, Ares was given his choice of Jaffa - Zypher being one of them - and was sent into the Pegasus galaxy.  But instead of opposing him, concerned that he wouldn't have been able to stop Atlas, Ares fled when he came to the conclusion it would be a lost cause.  "So if I understand you correctly, Ares, not even Earth would have stood a chance against Atlas.  You say you had the technology and the power to flee, but you could have at least opposed him.  It may have been futile, but you could have at least tried to stop him from gaining too much power."  He shook his head.  "It sounds as if he wanted to be completely unopposed, to have total dominion over the known universe - at least, his version of reality, anyway.  But perhaps our version of Atlas was the same thing.  I don't know, as I never met him.  Something tells me that I wouldn't have wanted to.  But a threat like that to the known universe, where he desired to exterminate entire worlds...I don't know how you feel about someone taking away the basic sentient rights of the living, and to do it by force, but that doesn't sit well with me at all.  I can tell you this, though.  It wasn't me who gave the order to launch a pre-emptive strike to destroy him or his fleet.  It wasn't me who gave the order to stop him before he could present a greater threat to the galaxy.  Wanting to test a weapon of unknown capabilities...an entity with a track record of being so bent on domination, the only logical conclusion would be he couldn't be reasoned with.  No amount of diplomacy would have worked with him. No, the decision to launch a pre-emptive strike was made by one of my predecessors who sit in this very chair that I now occupy.  I would have done things differently, had I been the one in charge back then."

"I'll make this clear to you, Ares. I have no quarrel with you.  You seem far more reasonable than any Gou'ald System Lord I've ever met.  I'd like to think at least we can come to some type of understanding with each other.  But if we're to come to that understanding, to find some common ground between us, I need to know more about this recording you were shown."

Sarah listened to Ares explain his past.  She shuttered slightly.  She had liked Greek mythology when she had studied it, but to think that those gods and goddesses were real?  That was one thought she didn't want to dwell on.  There had always been horrible battles in mythology and it seemed like there was never a clear victor.  One battle seemed to merge into another and another.  How humankind had survived she had no idea.  And now to listen to Ares tale it sounded like no one would survive unless Atlas wanted it that way.

She tried not to fidget as she listened to Sean's answer.  She hoped that Ares reality would never become theirs.  Yes, she couldn't see the different planets standing for being taken over, but still.  To have a force that powerful could do some major damage.  And there would be many causalities.  Many innocent victims that didn't deserve that kind of an ending.  She closed her eyes briefly.  They couldn't let something like that happen.  She nearly jumped when Sean's phone rang and quickly looked at Sean, wondering if he would answer.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Again Ares looked to Zypher, her hand disappearing into the palm sized disk with the snapping pop, depositing the pyramid, and retrieving a smaller, teardrop shaped crystal, which she handed to Ares.  He palmed it, and she hooked the device back on her belt.  Ares' gauntlet came over Sean's desk, and deposited the crystal on his dayplanner.

"The same data recording (http://lostworlds.megabytetechsolutions.org/index.php?topic=135.msg3187#msg3187) as was provided to me by those I've worked with in the past... against Atlas... until he decimated their home system."

He sat back a moment and folded his hands once more over the arms of the chair, a muscle in his jaw working before he spoke, "A weapon is built for war... for purpose... A weapon does not care if you use it to kill evil or innocence..." He leaned faintly forward, "I happen to care... Before, during the war, the troops and commanders under my authority were my responsibility, but they were not mine.   After, when Atlas sent me off, the way back was barred, I was alone, with only my hand chosen crew and a single vessel ... Instead of conquering Pegasus as dictated, I found a planet... I settled, I developed ... " he gestured at the desk and sat back,"Much as the tau'ri did... when they freed themselves of Ra's influence... yes?"

He rose back to his feet, apparently unable to sit still for long periods, folding his hands behind him and looking at the flags as he spoke,"I could have done vast amounts of damage to Atlas and his forces... even with my own so seemingly insignificant...But what then?" He turned to face the two humans as the phone rang, falling silent to allow them to answer the apparent hail.

The pyramid was replaced by a smaller crystal, shaped like a teardrop, which was promptly placed on top of his dayplanner.  Ares stated that the recording was provided by the same people who'd worked with him before, until Atlas had destroyed that system, too.  Before he could examine it, the Gou'ald warlord started into another discourse.  Weapons, he said, were built for one thing - war.  Ares didn't seem like the type of System Lord whom was bent on warfare, but rather hinted that he preferred a different approach when he chose to settle on a planet instead of following his superior's mandate of conquering the Pegasus galaxy.  A faint smile creased Sean's lips.  He was right.  Ares did seem to be far more reasonable.

His brow creased when he was asked about the rebellion against Ra.  From what he recalled about Egyptian history, the worship of Ra ceased with the collapse of what was commonly referred to as the Old Kingdom, roughly in 2181 BCE.  Yet from what he'd read in the SGC's archives, that wasn't quite correct.  Ra had actually turned out to be a Gou'ald, proclaiming himself as the Supreme System Lord, and for nearly five thousand years had ruled over the ancient Egyptians until a rebellion was instigated sometime around 3000 BCE.  Nine hundred year difference, but Sean couldn't explain the discrepancy.  Knowing there were three sets of eyes on him, he managed a simple "Yes," but what was that noise?

Oh, the phone.  Sean blushed.  "Excuse me for a moment," he said apologetically.  "After I take this call, I'd like to review the recording you've provided, then ask some questions." He then lifted the handset. "Davidson," he said, giving his standard greeting of using his last name to identify himself to the caller.

Sarah listened intently to Ares.  The man was full of knowledge.  That was for sure.  She was glad that it was Sean who had to come up with the questions at the moment.  She would discuss things more with her husband later.  There was much to talk about, but now was not the time.  Hmm, maybe Ares wasn't so bad.  But then hadn't she just been warned about trusting him?  She was so confused right now.

Sarah stood silently as Sean finally answered the phone.  She had to admit, she was a bit curious as to who would be calling him right this minute. Most knew of where he was at the moment and wouldn't disturb him.

After the recounting of his origins, Ares was in no mood to appreciate the quaint communication device, simply nodding and turning his back to the desk to view the flags, or at least appear to.  His eyes saw little, as his mind rehashed a history he thought he'd managed to let go of, a past he'd tried to escape, but apparently even switching realities wasn't far enough. 

Zypher, sensing her Lord's sudden change of mood, glanced briefly at the two Tau'ri before moving over to Ares side, within his peripheral vision.  It was her version of reaching out a hand, without actually doing so.  Her own hands were folded behind her as his were, both militant, upright, and silent as Sean took his phone call.

Sean was surprised to hear Sam's voice on the other end of the line.  He'd forgotten all about that barbecue on Saturday, and to learn she was on her way for a visit brought a frown to his face.  "No, Colonel Carter, I haven't forgotten about the cookout on Saturday," he said finally after a moment or two.  "And I'm not so sure that you coming over here is a good idea, unless you can keep your husband pre-occupied.  We had an unexpected guest drop in for a little chat." There was no way Sean would tell Sam just who that guest was, even if she pressed.  No, he'd let her husband handle that detail.  And the phrase "little chat" was a mere euphemism for the real conversation that had currently been put on hold.

He put a hand over the mouthpiece and mouthed the words, "My apologies" to Ares before removing his hand and was ready to listen to whatever else Sam had to say.

Sam Carter?  Sarah was surprised to hear that name.  She wondered what the other woman had called about.  She glanced over at her husband, raising a brow.  It still hurt to think too much and she had so much on her mind that it was causing her head to spin.

Sarah suddenly started to feel a bit dizzy and found herself sliding into a chair that was close by.  Dang it!  Apparently the meds that Carrie had given her were wearing off and the headache and nausea were returning in full force.  "Sorry sir," she mumbled, not having meant to cause a disturbance.  She slowly started to get up again, keeping a hand against the wall.  Perfect, just what she didn't need to do.  Show weakness in front of a Gou'ald.

Ares waved off the Admiral's appology, knowing full well that the higher one went as far as management, the more they had to deal with interruptions.  People, no matter the race, thought the universe revolved around them. In a position of leadership, not just of a fleet of ships, but a whole world, Ares was no stranger to the event.

Zypher watched Ares' back a moment, but caught Sarah's collapse, biting her lower lip faintly and after a cursory glance at Ares, moved over to the woman's side.  She fished in a pocket of her armor, just under her shoulder plate, and offered a small bluish pill.

"The Banshee's scream can have lasting effects... " offered as explanation for the pill she now held.  Her voice was low and slightly smoky with the effort of speaking low as to not interrupt the ongoing phone call. Ares' eyes watched the interaction in the reflection of the closed blinds window.

"As far as I know, he's still expected to make his speech," Sean answered Sam's second question, blatantly ignoring her first question for now.  "Very well," was the only response he could think of to her comment of being in the Med Bay about a half-hour from how.  He hung up the phone and sighed, sitting back in his chair as if thinking for a moment or two.  Then he remembered the smaller crystal on his dayplanner.  Leaning forward, he took the teardrop-shaped crystal into his hand.  He frowned, turning it this way and that in his hands but couldn't figure out how to activate the device.  "Either I'm not used to something like this, or I lack the right touch," he commented wryly.

Sarah slowly looked up at Zypher's light touch.  Her ears were still ringing, but at least it seemed like Sean hadn't noticed.  Of course rather that was good or bad she wasn't sure.  Sarah glanced at the pill that Zypher held in her hand.  It was like nothing she had ever seen before and she was a bit leery to start with.  "Thank you," Sarah said softly, accepting the pill.  "Seems like an appropriate name."   She closed her eyes briefly before swallowing the pill.

Ares turned when he heard the phone hang up, and watched as the Admiral picked up the crystal, his head tilting to one side.

"You have an Atlantean Aurora class vessel in orbit. If I am not mistaken, there are subsystems of that technology that the goa'uld converted into mineral data." His gauntlet gestured at the piece Sean held, "You may keep that.  It is only a copy.  Included with the video file is a set of coordinates halfway between your world, and mine, and an encryption key for a subspace frequency.  This frequency I will have monitored.  Once you have reviewed the data, and spoken with whoever you need to, I will be ready to continue this conversation.  The stipulation being the same as what I have done today; I will speak with you, or someone delegated by you specifically.  I will not accept "I was sent by"... anyone can say so... which is why I came myself... so you can see my face, look into my eyes as we speak and know that what I say is what I mean."

Zypher leaned a little closer to Sarah to muffle her voice while Ares spoke to Sean, "It's an enzyme designed to stabilize one's equilibrium.  The pain will subside in a minute or two."  She straightened as Ares finished speaking and moved over to his side, hands once again folding behind her in loose 'grand rest' stance, her blue/green eyes settling on the Admiral.

"Should you see fit to continue talks ... I will be listening.  In the meanwhile, I will withhold any further judgement on my own findings.  You can tell the El'Dari the same.  I will not personally speak to them again if I can help it... I did not rend the veil between realities to escape a Tyrant only to be caught in the passive aggressive net of another...You would do wise to review your own standing with them.  Their response time, as well as their actions, are suspicious, even for those who would name you allies."

His unaugmented gauntlet went around Zypher's lower back and tucked her smaller frame against his side; Sean would recognize the posture not as one of intimate embrace, but of readying, like when someone was on a ripcord, and the other was not and needed to be secured to be carried along.

Sean wondered if Ares was referring to either the Saggitta or to the El'dari vessel in orbit, then concluded that that Gou'ald warlord was referring to the former.  It was interesting to learn that there was a set of coordinates halfway between Earth and whatever distant rock Ares hailed from, along with an encrypted key for a specific subspace frequency that would be monitored.  It was also clear that Ares wasn't planning on sticking around, but rather hinted that he'd be elsewhere instead of here.  He was willing to wait until Sean contacted him, but blatantly accused the El'dari of "passive aggressiveness."

"I'll be sure to have an authorized delegate contact you, if I'm not too busy myself," he finally said.  "If it's a delegate, I'll be sure to send along any formal written documentation or recording to indicate such.  Otherwise, I'll look this over."  He held up the crystal.  "My instincts are telling me that we're both being played, possibly against each other, and that's something I don't appreciate.  Especially if it's a third party trying to manipulate the strings."

"Thank you, Zypher," she said, managing to remember the woman's name despite the pain she had been in earlier.  Her head slowly stopped pounding like a jackhammer and she was able to take an easy breath for once.

She carefully pushed away from the wall, not wanting to take a spill if she wasn't steady yet.  She listened though as Ares and Sean finished up their conversation.  It hadn't occurred to her that someone would be trying to play them.  It didn't sit well with her though.  And then she still had the mystery woman to talk to Sean about as he was supposed to call her.

Intimate embrace or no, Zypher wasn't about to waste the opportunity of being close, and put one hand on the armored belt as Ares' grip around her back tightened in preparation of quantum recall.  Ares didn't seem to notice, and kept his attention on Sean as he spoke, nodding his agreement to the potential of being 'played'. 

"It's entirely possible.  With hope, this will be clarified before anyone does anything rash..."  A rational, even reasonable goa'uld warlord?  Who'd have thought?  The large man regarded Sarah as she stood straighter, then nodded as she seemed already better, making mental note to include the enzyme on potential future treaty negotiations.  It was standard issue with his troops, as the use of their quantum jumps was more than disorienting at times, and they needed to stay focused on the field. 

"Our histories are dark enough as they are, Admiral, in any reality.  Let it be known, I will personally address any goa'uld who sees fit to contact me. I will be attempting to ... consolidate... what is left of my race.  Those who choose their own way, I will make note, and make the Tau'ri aware...Khnum for starters. Any who join me, I will take responsibility for their actions.  I may not be a politician... but I was built to lead, groomed to rule.  It is time I put that to use ... for the better..."

Zypher's eyes gleamed like an excited cat listening to Ares' speech.  It had been similar to what he'd said on Aion, and it pleased her to see him finally taking up the mantle his people had already attributed to him; Lord Ares.

Ares seemed to agree with Sean that something was definitely suspicious about the whole ordeal, and offered some hope that this would be resolved in a rather peaceful manner. The admiral agreed with that assessment.  Ares nodded at Sarah briefly, whom seemed to be a lot more composed.  Sean wondered what Zypher had given to his executive officer; not that he hadn't noticed it, but chose to remain focused on the Gou'ald warlord across from his desk.

He listened as Ares made his intentions known: Any Gou'ald whom came in contact with him directly he would be speaking with, and extend the invitation to integrate their forces under his banner.  Those whom refused that offer would be noted, and that information passed on to the Tau'ri.  It was interesting to know that Khnum had already declared his independence, which meant Sean would now have to be on guard for anything thrown his way from that direction.  Otherwise, Ares would claim full responsibility for those whom sided with him, and felt that he could possibly start to make a difference for the better.

It was time for Sean to come up with an offer of his own.

"I can't exactly speak for the politicians whom try to pull this program in one direction or another, Ares.  We've already had some higher-ups make an end run around us, and order two of our largest vessels to make an unprovoked, unauthorized attack on what was previously a neutral party.  One captain refused those orders, and the other was ordered to destroy the first on trumped-up charges of insubordination.   But as long as I'm the commanding officer, and that sphere of influence extends to every remote outpost and to every space-faring vessel that bears the colors of the Stargate Program, the men and women under my command are to give you and those under your banner all due respect." 

He then pointed at Sarah.  "Colonel Devlin has my full consent to act in my stead should I become incapacitated or unable to perform my duties.  That's why she's my executive officer.  She also will have full authority over the actions of our fleet, even though General Caldwell - our fleet commander - outranks her.  I'll make it clear to General Caldwell that, should he come upon any of your forces or those allied with you, he is not to openly engage.  The same directive will be issued to the other naval captains.  If they have any doubts or questions, they're to let me know and I'll contact you to get your side of the story.  That goes the other way as well.  If one of the fleet or a strike team engages in suspicious activity or initiates an unprovoked attack within your borders without reasonable cause, if they claim they received their orders from this desk or from Colonel Devlin, contact me immediately.  Chances are they're acting on their own accord, which means they can be considered rogue operatives.  I don't tolerate rogue operatives, nor do I harbor them.  They're nothing more than criminals in my opinion, and should they manage to escape and make their way back to Tau'ri space, I'll have a team track them down and bring them back here to face military justice.  If I have to press for the death penalty, I will."

"I'm not a politician either, Ares.  Nor was I born to lead.  I was promoted to my current rank and subsequently appointed to this position because someone higher up thought I could handle the responsibility, based on my thirty-four years of military service.  I'm doing all I can to live up to those expectations."  He reached down and opened a drawer in his desk, and slid back a panel, revealing a hidden compartment.  Sean then reached in, felt his fingers brush against something, and he got a hand around it to extract it.  Sliding the panel shut, he pulled the object up to reveal a sealed bottle of Ireland's finest.  Jameson.  With a foot he nudged the drawer shut, then set the bottle down in front of Ares.  "Consider this as my gift to you, Ares, in the spirit of our mutual cooperation to push towards a lasting peace between us."

Sarah stood quietly and listened to Sean and Ares talk.  Sean wasn't normally one to give such a long speech, but it all made sense to her.  And unfortunately she wouldn't be surprised if they had ones that tried to attack without direct orders.  She hoped not, but there was always that change.  She also wondered just what the mystery woman she had talked to earlier would have to say as she said not to trust any Gou'ald.

Sarah managed not to react as Sean opened a hidden drawer in his desk.  It shouldn't have surprised her, yet for some reason it had.  She glanced back at Ares, hoping he would accept it as the gift it was.  The last thing they needed was war.  They were all trying to work to stop war, not start another one.

Ares relaxed the 'ripcord' posture he'd been in as Sean reached into his desk.  Ever curious, almost to a fault, the goa'uld stepped away from Zypher who leaned faintly, curious herself but a little more wary of gifts. The augmented gauntlet, like his helmet before, seemed to break down and flow away from his fingers with a tinkling sound like someone shifting glass shards around, collapsing into a band around his now bare hand which he used to take the bottle and examine it.  When he peered at the label, his head tilted, turned it around, then back again, glancing briefly to Sean and Sarah, then back to the bottle. 

Zypher cleared her throat, a hand to her mouth as if to stifle it, but both the Admiral and his XO could see the tightness in her cheeks as she repressed a giddy expression. "It's a drink, My Lord, an alcohol if I read the label right..." and Ares' brows rose in a silent 'ah' expression, and nodded, pursing his lips.  The giant rarely partook of any such drink, but he recognized the offer, and his expression turned considering a moment, glancing back to Zypher.

"Do we have any of the amber wine from this recent curing?" Zypher too looked considering a moment, then arched a brow and shrugged.  Ares set the bottle down on the table beside him and reached for his earpiece. "Romulous... ask Stern where he keeps the Amber..."  He paused a moment, eyes slightly unfocused as he listened, then nodded to what was said, reaching to Zypher and taking that circular device from her belt, setting it on the desk in front of Sean and holding it on it's edge, his thumb depressing the button hers had earlier. "Activate..."

On the desk, there was a snap and slight crackle of energy from the device, and a silver crystalline gauntlet seemed to emerge from a distortion a few inches in front of it, holding an ornate twin fluke twisted glass bottle, one neck higher than the other, and set it on the table.  The bottle itself was a minor work of art; a pair of swans back to back, their necks arched and intertwined forming the mouth of the bottle. The glass was clear, with a few blemishes here and there to indicate it was hand blown, and filled to about mid neck with an amber fluid. 

Once deposited, the hand retreated and Ares lifted the device, tossing it casually back to Zypher.

"Not everything Aion produces is designed for War," naming his planet, his domain, and gesturing at the bottle. "There is a vineyard maintained by the civilian population ... this is one of their wares... they call it Amber, for the color.  It is one of the rare substances I will personally imbibe... "  Behind him out of sight, Zypher rose one of her hands and made a 'itty bitty' gesture with forefinger and thumb, indicating just how much she'd seen him drink of the wine on various occasions.

Sean watched as Ares' bare hand became visible, picking up the bottle of Jameson and turned it around as if examining it.  Zypher cleared her throat then her cheeks appeared to tighten a little as she tried not to laugh, explaining that it was in fact alcohol.  The Gou'ald warlord's eyebrows raised as he nodded, then turned to his protege to ask if they had any amber wine in stock.  She shrugged as if unsure, then Sean watched as Ares set the bottle of Jameson down and reached for his earpiece, asking someone - presumably one of his crew - where they kept the goods.  He then took the device from Zypher's belt, set it down on the desk and gave the order to activate the device.

A silver crystal gauntlet appeared out of thin air, holding a very ornate glass bottle.  Expertly crafted, Sean noted as he studied it.  A pair of swans with necks arched and intertwined to form the bottle's opening.  A few minor blemishes here and there, and there was an amber fluid swirling about inside up to about mid-neck.  The gauntleted hand vanished, and Ares gave the device back to Zypher.  Sean listened as the warlord explained, his lips making an "oooh" in appreciation.  The last time he'd had any wine was from Napa Valley.  Catching the small gesture from Zypher, Sean nodded.  "Sounds like we may have something else in common, then," he casually mentioned.  "During one of my shore leaves, I took a trip through California's Napa Valley.  Well-known for its vineyards and wineries.  Went on a wine-tasting tour.  I'll be looking forward to sampling the Amber.  It sounds as if it's just as good, if not better, than Napa's finest."  He nodded at the bottle of Irish whiskey.  "That bottle of Jameson has a black label for a reason.  It's what they call their Rarest Vintage Reserve.  Doesn't come cheap, either, but it's won many awards."  Sean was fond of the stuff but rarely drank it; not just because he didn't drink while on duty but because of the exorbitant price per bottle.

A slight smile touched Sarah's lips as Ares seemed to study the bottle of Jameson that Sean had given him.  And then to see that Zypher had to explain what it was.  Not to mention it was obvious that Zypher was trying hard not to laugh herself.  Apparently they were at least semi human if still a bit mysterious.  It was disconcerting actually as one didn't know what to believe.  Goa'ulds were supposed to be bad, yet Ares seemed different.

Sarah would worry about that later. When her and Sean could actually sit down and talk.  Which she needed to do soon.  She bit back her own chuckle when Zypher showed just how much Ares drank.  It reminded her of Sean.  She knew the Admiral didn't drink much.  Although he would at times.

Ares gave a single nod and picked up the bottle once more, less like an object of curiosity, and more like the small treasure the Admiral had made it out to be.  He made a mental note about distillery and the tau'ri proclivity to value it for later.  Gathering Zypher once more against his side, the bottle tucked under his arm, his gauntlet flowed back over his hand, the various precious stones surfacing and settling into their places.

"At this point in time, Admiral, I cannot say weather it is a good thing, or bad, that we have been... 'played', as you say.  I do not think I would have bothered coming this way had I not.  Despite the ... rough start... " his head turned to Sarah and gave a slight nod, one would almost think apologetic, then another to Sean directly.

With that, he reached around Zypher and depressed one of the sapphires on his gauntlet, activating the anchor recall of his suit, keyed to Romulous' location aboard the Kheron, and took a step backward.  There was a hum, a snap like a loose electrical wire, and a sudden vaccume, and then both the goa'uld, and his Amazon, were gone.

Sean watched as Ares picked up the bottle of Jameson, then gathered Zypher at his side once more.  He then spoke as if voicing his uncertainty on how to perceive recent events, but otherwise mentioned that he probably wouldn't have bothered paying a visit in the first place.  Although he offered a bit of a silent apology by way of a nod, which Sean replied by sketching a salute with two fingers of his right hand as the Gou'ald and his companion made their exit. 

He then turned to Sarah.

"Contact the fleet," he instructed her. "Tell them we've been successful with our initial negotiations with Ares, and they're to leave him alone.  Same order applies to those flying his banner."  He then turned his attention to the teardrop-shaped crystal left behind.  Sean picked it up and held it up to the light, noting the various refractions through it, much like a prism.  This was clearly another part of the puzzle that needed to be solved, and hopefully the right answer could be correctly applied to the much larger picture.

Sarah saluted to Ares and gave Zypher a smile.  Whatever that pill had been had worked wonders.  She could actually think again.  She watched the two disappear before turning her attention to Sean.

"Of course, sir, but sir, there is something else we need to discuss," she said.  "I have had an odd conversation that you should know about."  Sarah stepped over to the radio though to let their fleet know what was going on.  She could tell Sean about Athena after she took care of the message.  "Caldwell and Mitchell.  we have just finished negotiations with Ares.  He is to be left alone.  Repeat, do not attack."

Sarah clicked off the radio and turned to Sean.  She wanted to see if he was willing to listen to her before she launched into her strange phone call.

Sean set the crystal back down on his desk, then gestured for Sarah to take the seat opposite of him.  This odd conversation she was referring to had his attention for the moment.  "Go ahead and have a seat, Sarah," he said to her, defaulting to his usual custom of addressing subordinates by their first names whenever a junior officer or an NCO wasn't around.  "Then tell me about this little chat you had."

Post by: sorra on August 22, 2013, 10:59:58 AM
Sarah slid into the offered seat after she had made sure to make contact with the fleet.  She sighed softly as she thought back to the conversation.  "It started when you had been in the med bay.  A phone call had been transferred to my phone.  I returned the call and she said that you know her.  Her name is Miss Matthews and she wants you to call her back.  She said she needs our help, but I don't know who she is."

He leaned back in his chair, his brow furrowed as he tried to think of just whom Sarah was referring to.  "Matthews...Matthews..." he muttered, trying to place the name with a face.  Definitely a female.  Then his eyes narrowed.  "Not Sabrina Matthews," he deadpanned, shaking his head ever so slowly.  "She owns one of the most powerful industrial conglomerates on the planet.  La Forge Industries, if I recall.  What'd she want?"

"Yes, that's who it was," she answered.  Sarah raised a brow when Sean didn't seem real happy about it. This wasn't looking good.  "She said she needed some help from SG-4.  She wouldn't say anything else.  Just that it was urgent and you should call her."

"Well, I just can't snap my fingers like that and dispatch one of our teams without reason." He shook his head.  "Especially sending them to her."  He rubbed his eyes with a forefinger and thumb, then let out a long sigh.  "She's usually living it up in her villa on the Mediterranean coast.  Flaunting her money and power this way and that.  Heaven only knows how many men she's flirted with." Lowering his hand, he leaned forward again and started to search for her information in his personal directory.  "Did she say she was still there, or has she jet-set to some resort in the Caribbean?"

Sarah wasn't sure she was liking what she was hearing.  Sabrina certainly hadn't told her anything like that.  No wonder she said to ask Sean.  "Sounds like quite a person," she said.  "I don't understand why she would need our help."  Sarah thought back to the conversation. "She said she would be reachable again in about 6 to 8 hours.  She was headed somewhere," Sarah answered.

Sean nodded and picked up the phone, then dialed the number for the main office of one of the many subsidiaries under the La Forge Industries' umbrella; this particular company's office happened to be located near Kansas City's Crown Center District.  He waited for a few moments, then spoke.  "Sabrina Matthews, please.  Tell her Admiral Davidson is calling. She'll know who I am."

The secretary on the other end of the line dutifully transferred his call to Sabrina's office.

Sarah sat back in her chair and waited quietly.  She wasn't sure how this conversation was going to go or why Sabrina needed or wanted their help.  There were so many loopholes in this little project.  Sarah just hoped that it wouldn't get any of them in trouble.

Sean glanced at his watch when Sabrina answered her phone.  She was obviously still in the air; her secretary had routed the call to her private jet.  "I can't exactly leave Cheyenne Mountain, Miss Matthews," he gently warned her.  "One of the civilian contractors under my command - I can't say who, obviously - complained to the IOA about his recent posting and prompted them to send someone to conduct an investigation.  So a face-to-face chat is out of the question.  Either we set up the secure videoconference link, or I send someone out to Kansas City on my behalf."

Sarah sat quietly and listened to Sean's end of the conversation.  She still didn't understand why Sabrina Matthews needed their help.  Or who exactly she was either.  And listening to Sean's side wasn't helping her much.  All she knew was Sean didn't seem real thrilled to be talking to Sabrina.

Sean hung up the phone, thought for a moment, then quickly keyed in his query for Kessinger/Hunter & Company, LLC, in Kansas City.  2600 Grand Boulevard, Suite 700.  It was in what the locals referred to as the Crown Center District.  He then entered that into a map search, then zoomed out until he found what he was looking for.

Whiteman Air Force Base, just outside of Warrensburg, Missouri.   It was actually closer to a town known as Knob Noster, but that was beside the point.  He crooked his finger at Sarah to get her attention.

"You're going to Kansas City to act as my rep to Sabrina Matthews," he told her.  "Get a hold of Angie and have her arrange for a flight from Peterson to Whiteman, then get clearance for a government vehicle.  Once on the ground and in the car, get on US Route 50 west towards Lee's Summit.  You'll merge with Interstate 470, take the exit for westbound traffic.  Follow that to what the locals call the 'Grandview Triangle'; it's the intersection of US Routes 50 and 71, and Interstates 435 and 470.  Get onto US Route 71 north and head towards downtown Kansas City."  He looked at the screen again.  "You'll want to take the exit for 27th and 29th Streets, take the first light for 27th and go left, then make your right at Grand Boulevard."  Knowing Sarah would have a hard time remembering all that, Sean fished his personal GPS device from his desk drawer and plugged it into a USB port, then began to port the information into the device.  "Sabrina will be at her office in just over two hours from now.  Find out what she wants, as she's not willing for a videoconference but rather wants a face-to-face chat with someone.  I strongly suggest you get your gear together and head out the door before Devore shows up and starts asking questions.  If you run into trouble anywhere along the way, give me a call and I'll do what I can from this side.  If anyone asks, tell them you're on official government business."

Sean had actually visited Kansas City several times during some of his shore leave; having been to several Chiefs and Royals games in the early to mid 80s.  He missed the sights, the sounds, but he missed the barbecue most of all.

He handed Sarah a government credit card, then his GPS after it pinged suggesting the data had successfully transferred.  "Try not to blow through the budget," he said to her.

Sarah looked up quickly, her eyes widening.  "I"m what?" she asked in shock.  She didn't know this woman at all and it had seemed like Sean didn't like her much.  Yet they were still setting up a meeting with her?  Sarah frowned slightly, but knew it was pointless to argue.  "Yes, sir.  I'll leave right now."

Sarah stood and headed out of the office after having snagged Sean's GPS.  She certainly didn't want to forget that as she had no idea where she was going.  Sheesh!  What was she getting herself into?  And just who was this Sabrina Matthews?  Well, hopefully she would get those answers soon enough.

Sean began to study the crystal Ares left behind, containing the other recording (http://lostworlds.megabytetechsolutions.org/index.php?topic=135.msg3187#msg3187).  Once he figured out how to activate the hologram within, he sat back and watched...and listened...

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

...It was jerky, as it had been filmed in secret by some operative. First up was a hasty look into some medical procedure, where the victim was tied down and screaming. A cylinder filled with yellow liquid was plunged into their chest, and after a few spurts of blood and additional screaming, the body quieted down. The cylinder was now filled with a symbiote.

Take it to Disposal, a voice said without remorse.

The film cut away to show rows of cells, each one occupied by a pitiful being. A few still had defiance left in their eyes, but the rest had already accepted their fate. The operative was standing beside a guard as roll was called.

Sekhtef...Bellerephos...Aiakos...Athena...Mormo...Pontos...


The hologram abruptly stopped, and Sean gently shook the crystal, fearing he would break it if he tried to force it to show any more.  His mind went over the conversation he'd just had with Ares.  His story was that the video of the extraction was supplied to him by Kaeth, head of some society called the Kualpush.  Ares had claimed he'd worked with them before.  But something kept nagging at him, something that didn't quite add up.  His old SEAL instincts were starting to kick in again, driving him to dig a little deeper.

Turning to his workstation, Sean began searching the archives for any references on Kaeth.

Sarah left Athena waiting outside as she stepped into Sean's office.  Oh, this was going to be interesting.  She wasn't quite sure how Sean was going to react to this.  But he needed to meet with Athena.  It seemed like the goa'uld had a very urgent mission and a good one at that.  "Admiral?" she asked, stepping into Sean's office.

Getting inside was the easy part; convincing Sean would be somewhat harder. Athena hoped that the sweetener of the Ancient technology may be enough to swing it with him. Failing that, she had one or two more aces up her sleeve. Sarah went straight into the commanders office and left Athena waiting in the briefing room, she stood there looking down on the Stargate, reflecting on the lives lost and worlds turned upside because of that device. Sometimes she wondered if it was all worth it and the damned thing should have never been found by anyone, anywhere.

Sean looked up from his keyboard and monitor when he heard Sarah's voice. "Well, that was fast," he said, glancing at his watch.  "I would have thought your visit with Sabrina Matthews would have taken at least a couple of days.  What did she have to say?"

Sarah hadn't thought about Sean figuring she would be gone longer.  "Admiral, there is some things that you really need to hear," she said, looking him in the eye.  "Things that I really think could change our lives and the lives of others."  She wasn't sure if she should mention that Athena was there or not.

Sarah hesitated briefly.  "I know you may not like it, but Sabrina is with me.  I think it would be better if she explained," she said, waiting to see if Sean would let her bring Athena in.

Sean leaned back in his chair, his expression suggesting that he was in utter disbelief over his wife's revelation that Sabrina Matthews had, in fact, came with Sarah.  "You meant to tell me she's here; and, knowing her, didn't bother to follow through with the usual protocol of submitting herself to an MRI?" His voice was level, and it was clear that he wasn't too pleased with that bit of information.  "Sarah," he said, sticking to his usual habit of addressing an immediate subordinate by first name whenever a much junior officer or NCO wasn't around, "Miss Matthews has to comply with my standing orders, as does any visitor to the SGC.  I can't bend that for just one person even if she is one of our biggest suppliers of materiél.  Technically, you as well should have to submit to an MRI, but since you've only been gone for less than twelve hours I don't believe you've had ample time to risk being compromised."  He let out a long sigh and ran his fingers through his hair, leaning his elbows on his desk.  His face buried in the palms of his hands for a brief moment, he lowered them and looked over at his wife.  "Get her scanned.  Then I'll talk to her."

Post by: sorra on September 25, 2013, 11:16:08 AM
Sarah shook her head.  Yes, she should have done the scan, but that would have sent up an alarm that they didn't need.  "I don't think a scan is a good idea, sir," she said respectfully.  "I can personally guarantee that she won't bring any illness to the SGC."  She closed her eyes briefly, knowing that he wouldn't like what she was about to say.  "She's a Goa'uld, sir," she finally said.  "An MRI would only send up a ton of red flags."

Sean fought to keep the bile from rising into his throat.  Goa'uld.  The very word made his skin crawl.  He was, for the most part, distrusting of that particular species and for good reason.  Only Ares so far had proven to be an exception, yet to learn that Sabrina Matthews was playing host to a parasite lowered his opinion of her.  No wonder Sarah didn't think having Sabrina scanned was a good idea.

For a moment he didn't speak.  He looked at Sarah, looked at the door leading into the office, and looked at Sarah again.  Finally, he rose from his seat and opened the door to his office.  He ducked his head through the doorway to see if Sabrina was there, only to note that she was.  Sean then turned back to Sarah.

"Bring that crystal from my desk," he said to her.  "Perhaps our Goa'uld friend can shed some more light on that recording Ares provided to us.  After I get some answers, of course."

Sarah remained quiet.  She didn't regret bringing Athena to the SGC.  After speaking with Will and Athena both she had to agree that the woman seemed to have the best interests at heart even if she was Goa'uld.  Sarah didn't argue and just grabbed the crystal.  She followed Sean out into the briefing room and sent Athena a smile.

A light tap on the door signalled Cheryl's arrival with the Alpha site contingent. Standing there, she rememberd a message she sent to the Admiral a short time ago.

No sooner than Sean sat down at his desk the intercom came to life.  It was Walter; he had indicated that Cheryl was on her way up and that Captain Hughes was sent home after his medical evaluation.  Before given a chance to reply, a light tap on the door and Cheryl appeared with General Caldwell, General Chalmers, and Lieutenant Commander Wettin.  Sean rose to his feet and nodded.  "Thank you, Lieutenant," he said to her.  "I'll be sure to send that transcript over to you, time permitting.  In the meantime, have Captain Hughes and his team recalled immediately.  Dismissed."   He then looked at his visitors and gestured with his hand to be seated.  "I can only suppose with your being here, General Chalmers," he looked at her for a moment, "Whatever the hell happened at the Alpha Site can't be good.  The fact that my fleet ops commander is also here tells me it's not only bad news, but the news is somewhat dire.  So.  Let's hear it."

In that very moment Lucille gained the upper level and Sean's office, the first thing she thought of somewhat vanely perhaps, was to go on a diet. While true she might have put on a few pounds, it was the fact that the alpha site had few usable staircases that might have contributed to that fact. Once they were at Sean's office, she waited until the girl was dismissed, standing a respectful distance by the door.

That part out of the way, Lucille stood with her hands behind her back, a worried frown creasing her brow. "Probably not what you want to hear Sean and I'll try not to leave anything out." The problem was, how do you explain such a debacle, without making either her or Steven look like right royal gooses? You couldn't really and the only thing was to get straight to the point.

"Steven, with his ship and crew, arrived a little later than expected. I know he couldn't help that, and it didn't have much impact I don't believe on the events that took place thereafter. I think it was something like thirty minutes or so into the unloading of supplies, the Saggitta's XO along with her Science officer took the liberty of doing a little sight seeing." That might have been a little unfair, but in truth, seeing a flock of birds in flight, wasn't all that unusual, not to Lucille at least. But then, the wasn't any particular drill in place regarding such activities either.

She looked at Steven and Linde. "You two can best relay what happened after that I think " The Alpha Site CO, had her own version, more than likely the same as Steven and his Tactical Officer; but they had a great deal of input to give as well. She would get to the Borg soon.

"Thank you sir." Cheryl was at least relieved she could have some down time now before her next watch, which was in twelve hours, although the admiral had given her one last task to do. On her way out, she pulled out her little Samsung phone, went through the number files until she found the right one. She hit the speed dial.

Steven continued the narrative. "Lieutenant Colonel Aguayo and Doctor Hart saw unusual activity by birds in the area, and wished to check it out. They were accompanied by four Marines. Colonel Aguayo was still under the impression that the area between the landing site and the coast was still as safe as years past. Unfortunately it wasn't. The weather was such and the vegetation was such that the recon sats and drones would not work well in that terrain. The party walked right into an ambush. Now my ship's First Officer and four Marines are badly hurt in the Alpha Site infirmary, and Doctor Hart is missing. Right after I leave here I and Lieutenant Commander Wettin will be riding, and yes, I mean riding, out with friendly locals to try and find her."

"There are a lot of hostiles on that planet, and even with the help of friendly locals we don't have the strength to hold it. General Chambers badly needs more troops to hold that perimeter. A brigade of mechanized troops told the base and to provide striking power when we need it, and a brigade of light troops to operate in the bush. Plus a lot more ground attack craft. I know that resources are limited, but you're going to lose that base if you can't put more troops into it."

Lucille looked at Steven with something akin to shock. She had for the moment forgotten that he and Linde wanted to ride in company with Jordan and Josile. Her hand went to her mouth. "Our timing is a little off Steven, if I know Josile and I know her well, she will want to be off before sunset. I can finish up here, you have exactly thirty three minutes to get back and kitted up." She told him as she glanced at the time. This was going to go from bad to worse if they didn't co-ordinate a little better. "We can radio via the gate to Jordan and ask her to wait I suppose."

"On our way," Steven said. He would trust to Lucille to put forward the necessary arguments. "Please radio Jordan that we will be there momentarily." He looked at the admiral. "Sean, you hired me to be a strategist. So I'm strategizing."

He listened as his Alpha Site commander and Fleet Ops Commander gave him the assessment that he didn't want to hear.  The Saggitta had arrived later than anticipated; why, he had no idea.  Then he was told that the executive officer and science officer decided to "do some sightseeing"; the conversation then turned to Caldwell.  Sean focused on his subordinate as he spoke, the admiral's face turning more grim as he listened.  Maria and Flynn spotted some activity that warranted a closer look, and took a detachment of four Marines with them, only to be ambushed.  Only five of the six returned to the Alpha Site, with Flynn gone missing.

Sean's eyes narrowed briefly at the thought.  He was aware of a certain British officer having a relationship with Flynn, much to the chagrin of her older brother.  If Fred ever found out that Flynn has disappeared, he'll be pushing me to send him to the Alpha Site to begin looking for her.  Guy will undoubtedly want to go as well.  Damn, this isn't going to go so well.  Whatever Caldwell was trying to say to him was tuned out briefly; he and Wettin were going to ride out with the locals to find Flynn?

Oh, yes.  He'd nearly forgotten.  Josile, wasn't it?  Nominal leader of some local tribe or clan?  It had been a while, to be honest.

His Fleet Ops Commander then gave his assessment of the situation: More firepower would be required, firepower that wasn't at Sean's disposal.  Caldwell knew what Sean already knew: Resources were scarce.  Before he could interject himself back into the conversation, Chalmers looked over at Caldwell and said she could finish up here, allowing the latter to return to the Alpha Site.  "Sean, you hired me to be a strategist. So I'm strategizing," he had said, then leaving with Wettin in tow.

The former SEAL officer shook his head emphatically.  "He'd better come up with something brilliant, and I mean brilliant, if he's to find Doctor Hart," Sean growled, not intentionally focusing his ire on Chalmers but she was really the only one in the room to whom he could vent.  "I don't have to be reminded of how the Alpha Site needs to have reinforcements sent as quickly as possible, but those idiot politicians at the IOA have launched an internal inquiry to see if I'm still qualified to run this outfit.  Naturally, they've declined my request to bring in more personnel, more equipment while basically giving me the finger."  He let out a frustrated sigh.  "I can't exactly go to the United Nations, either, as three of the Security Council members recently tried to pull a coup and expose the Stargate Program to the public at-large.  I ask the UN Security Council for more manpower, and they'll want to know where their troops are being sent and why."

"I could always talk to Gates, I suppose, once I get the all-clear from Jack.  But they're both a bit preoccupied with the recent El Aenir attack on the Pentagon.  Donovan's missing and is presumed killed; the Army's top dog just called and wants me to send Captain Hughes to Washington immediately to help with the investigation."

"You had best get your gate technician to radio Jordan, Sean, before we go any further." Lucille told him in her typical blunt Marine fashion. She had to think, normally she would give herself plenty of time to go through the processes, sadly though, there was little time available if her predictions came to fruition. It was possible they could lose the Alpha site, after having only just rebooted the mining operations and that lack of income would be devastating for not only the Stargate programme, but the UN as well. "Just give them a subtle reminder where their 'extra' funding is coming from. Not they should have to be reminded of course, but with the amount of money they are pouring into Afghanistan, they will be up the damned creek without a paddle if we lose this. You know and so do I and they as well." Once fired up, Lucille could be a force to be reckoned with. Washington should be thankful she didn't go into politics. Then she had a thought, something she recalled from an earlier conversation some six months ago. "Those Australian SAS and our Airborne regiment given to us during the Hozgura war, what are they doing now?"

((OOC the Gate would be shut down by now. Walter will need to be told to re-dial, then radio back to the Alpha site))

"Walter's on duty; he's smart enough to know to radio Jordan," Sean replied.  "As for your idea of where the 'extra' funding is coming from; I suppose I could give a subtle clue or two to the UN and remind them."  He sighed.  Chalmers was indeed a firebrand, which was why she and Sean often clashed over this or that in the past.  Yet in his opinion, she was well-suited to commanding the Alpha Site.  Her next question caught him by surprise, though, and he had to sit down in his chair and lean back so he could think.  Indeed, where were those Australian SAS and Airborne regiments?

It took him a minute or two to come up with an answer.  "Reassigned to other duties, as far as I know," he said.  "I don't have enough pull to have them yanked from whatever they're doing and sent to the Alpha Site.  I'd have to call Jack and ask him to contact the Australian Minister for Defense's office."

That was the one thing Lucille was lacking on her base; someone with enough intelligence to know what to do and when without being told. Such a pity they couldn't simply clone the personnel they found best suited to each role they needed; Walter was indeed an asset to the SGC, an asset she didn't have at the moment. "You're very fortunate to have him Sean, it is such a pity there were not more like him." Walter wasn't the only asset she coveted, she was short on scientists as well, that was more than evident when security issues confronted her regarding technology; it was often a case of muddling through it and crossing your fingers.

Coming back to the subject at hand she looked up at him. "Is Anne MacGregor still on base? I know she has some pull with the Australian Defence attache' in Washington, its worth a shot at least. Other than that, the only thing I can think of in the short term is asking for aid from the Free Jaffa." That was a long shot, but Ishta and her people were getting immense benefit from the mining site, acquiring minerals for barely their recovery costs.

"He'll be due for retirement soon," Sean countered when Lucille praised the long-serving chief master sergeant.  "Brownwell comes close, but she hasn't been around as long as Walter has.  We'll have to muddle along without him once he goes."  Although his counterpart did have a valid point; Walter was one of the most experienced personnel in the SGC.  Then the subject abruptly changed to discuss Anne once more.  When asked if his old friend was still around, Sean nodded.  "She is.  Last I heard she was still busy in the Infirmary; doing what at this point, I have no idea.  But if she has some pull with the Australian Embassy, it's something I might be able to put to use.  As for the Free Jaffa coming in to help..." His voice trailed off for a moment as his mind went over recent events.  "It's worth a try, but I can't promise anything."

Sean turned to his keyboard and started tapping out a short but pointed message.  "I'll see if Anne can get in touch with the Australian Embassy when she has a moment or two."  His typing stopped short, though, when Walter's voice was heard over the intercom.  Still no contact from Zulu Station?  That wasn't good.  Leaning over, he pressed the transmit button.  No sense in jumping the gun, but he needed to know for sure what was going on.

*intercom to Control Room*

"Acknowledged, Walter.  As for Zulu Station...get a message off to them, let them know we need a sitrep."

The sound of her heart beat rang in Lucille's ears, she hated waiting on anything with a passion bordering on zeal. She tapped her fingers lightly for a brief moment, giving her a chance to think of the depth that the current situation might place on them; if not contained, the Borg could present real problems for not only the Alpha Site, but the entire program, such was the financial reliance they had no on the 'black' funding. "Do what you can Sean, I can't impress upon you enough the strategic importance of the Alpha site. I think, don't quote me on this, but I believe the eighty first Airborne unit, or what they left us with may be aboard the Dreadnought, that would be near three hundred. Half of those would be a help if Cam didn't have an immediate need for them. The rest can be made up with the Australians if Anne can move some mountains." Lucille didn't know the woman well, only by reputation and one single meeting at the end of the war. Knowing what she did know, she knew the Commodore could be quite obstinate at times, but that was all she had for the moment.

"Young Cheryl will do well I think, she has had excellent tuition with Walter. How old is he now? Sixty or so I would imagine?" Perhaps not, she thought fifty five closer to the mark. There was still the IOA, how much could they play in this, was anyone's guess.

Sean nodded at Lucille when she asked her boss to do what he could to maintain the Alpha Site.  Walter then asked over the intercom if he wanted coffee, and the admiral pressed the transmit button. 

*intercom to Control Room*

"Yes, Walter, that will be fine."  

Releasing the button, Sean sighed and keyed in the rest of his message to Anne.

Get in touch with the Australian Embassy.  Ask them if we can borrow some of their Airborne and SAS units for a long-term assignment.  Sweeten the pot if you have to.

He pressed the SEND button, then depressed the transmit button on the intercom again.

"Walter, do you recall off-hand if any elements of the Eighty-First Airborne Division were assigned to the Dreadnought?"

While waiting for the reply, Sean looked across the desk at Lucille. "Haven't kept up on his personnel file to be honest with you, but I know he's put in a lot of years with the Air Force.  At least twenty-two, if I'm not mistaken.  The other problem is there's that high year tenure limit.  Once he reaches the thirty-year mark, I have to let him go.  Rumor has it that there's some changes coming down that will affect our enlisted ranks, but I haven't heard any details on what those will involve."

 Sean, the SAS unit assigned to the SGC are yours to do whatever need them for. I believe currently they are cooling their heals at Eielson Air Base, doing joint warfare exercises. The Airborne unit you mentioned are your eighty first regiment and I believe they are still ensconced aboard the Dreadnought. You only need to place the calls. I can't tell you though who the commander of the SAS unit is, since my son retired.

"It'd be a shame to lose him Sean." Lucille tapped her lips for a moment in thought. "His pension won't be adequate, it never is; if it came to it, why not offer him a civilian contractors position. At best he would be an excellent training instructor for the programme." The place was crawling with civilians, it wouldn't be an unusual circumstance in her mind.

Sean read over the email from Anne, then nodded as he started to type another message, this time addressed to the commanding officer at Eielson.  The top brass there was a two-star general in the Air Force; while technically the same rank as Sean, the former SEAL officer made sure to follow protocol when addressing his counterpart.  The request was a simple one; to release the SAS unit and have them return to Cheyenne Mountain within twenty-four hours.  Sean made sure to respectfully remind the air base CO that the SAS unit was still assigned to him, and therefore he had the authority to recall them at any time.  It didn't take long for the reply to come through, but there were some subtle jabs at Sean for being a "do-nothing-naval officer with his finger on the big red button" instead of "commanding a real outfit."  His response was that he was looking forward to watching Navy beat Air Force in the upcoming football game for the CIC Trophy, a satisified smirk on his face as he pressed the SEND button.

Lucille interrupted his thoughts.  He looked away from the monitor and directly into her face as she spoke, then nodded at her suggestion.  "I'm sure we could pull that off," he said after a moment.  "Wouldn't take much."  Glancing at the intercom, he made sure it was still set for the control room, and before pressing the transmit button figured that Walter was already on his way up.

A light tap on the door and Walter came in. "Here's you coffee sir, and I brought for you as well ma'am." He had taken the trouble to check who was still with the Admiral before he came up. "Sir, that Airborne Regiment, Dreadnought has 150 of them, the remainder, which I think is around 50 or so, are filling out SG teams and 15 of those were sent to Atlantis."

"You're having fun aren't you Sean?" Lucille told him, it was quite obvious from the expression on his face. She could only guess what he was writing to Eielson to have those Australian boys released; she would do much the same if her guess was correct. "I'm confident we..."

At that moment the man in question walked in, handing them both steaming coffee. That was something she needed to do back home; strange as it was, the Alpha base was her home and to have someone reliable like Walter would make her job so much easier. "Thank you Chief. I think I have time to enjoy it. By the way, if you don't mind me asking, how old are you now?" That was Lucille Chalmers, she never minced her words, straight to the point.

"You're welcome ma'am." Walter replied, then she hit with that 'embarrassing' question, he stuttered for a moment then answered. "I'll be fifty five next month General. That will be thirty seven years in the Air Force, my whole life really."

"You think so Lucy? I'd give my right arm to get square with that guy. The last time I mixed words with him was at the Pentagon when he saw fit to rub it into me, just how good his football team was. Now that we have some decent players at the Academy this season, it'll be my turn to give him some payback." Sean was adamant that 'was' going to happen.

Lucille wore a satisfied grin, she to in a round a bout way had some connection to that game. "Half your team are marines this year, so yes, we have a chance to even the score." She told him, that was something to give her a small dose of pleasure. With Walter's reply, she simply nodded; it should be relatively easy to get him back here if he had no other plans for the future, but that call was up to Sean of course. Time was getting on and she had to leave, satisfied the bolster to her bases manpower would be filled, she rose from her chair. "I must be getting back Sean. I'll keep you posted on the situation, hopefully we can contain this situation in good time."

Sean stood as well, gasping Lucille's hand. "Do so General. You'll have your extra people within twenty four hours."

Returning the handshake firmly, Lucille bid farewell to both and left as smartly as she came. Sean nodded to Walter, but before the old chief left, he had one more thing for him to do. "Chief, once you've seen General Chalmers on her way, find Mister Devore. I want him here in my office within the hour." He was about to sit back down, prepare his plans for his meeting with the IOA, yet there was just one other thing. "Tomorrow, come see me Walter. There is something I'd like to discuss with you."

"Thank you sir, I'll do that." Walter replied, then left as quietly as he came. "General Chalmers I'll wait for you in the Control Room ma'am." While he waited for Lucille, he went out the side door, avoiding the meeting in the briefing room altogether. There was a phone on the wall there, which doubled as a PA as well. He could patch directly to any given location. He tapped in the number for medbay.

"Mister Nicholas Devore of the IOA, the Admiral would like to see you immediately....sir." There, that should do it.

"Of course, Admiral. I don't expect you to stop running this base just because I'm here." Nick replied as he took a seat across from Sean and set his briefcase by his feet. "I would like you to go about your business as normal."

He cleared his throat. There really was no delicate way to go about this; the IOA was conducting an investigation into not only Admiral Davidson, but also the personnel under his command. Most people wouldn't take that well. "I'll be frank with you. I've already met with Major Sutton during my medical examination - and she expressed concerns that her department is short on staff. I've asked that she sit down with Doctor Svensson and Commodore MacGregor to find the best possible candidates. I'll see that the IOA provides her with the requested selections and the appropriate funding. If you have similar concerns, I'll do what I can to address those as well, but my superiors still have serious concerns about your abilities to run this base - and they believe that is evidenced by the men and women under your command. That means an investigation. As such, I expect to be included in any and all meetings with your staff. I also expect your personnel to be cooperative with any questions I may have."

A rather pleasant start Sean thought; at the same time he knew not to underestimate the IOA either. He rolled his shoulders, placed his hands on the desk and looked across at Devore. "I intend to son." He listened as Nick explained the nature of his duties and the investigation; Sean wasn't surprised by it, the debacle of the Alpha Site mission all those months ago still plagued his thoughts from time to time. Yet there was little any commander could have done to have had a different outcome or even a remote chance of success; they were caught completely off guard and it was only barely twenty four hours into his command. Still the losses hurt and those thereafter at the battle with the Hozgura a day or so after. What was puzzling though, was Devore's insistence from his superiors that there is a chink in his chain of command, more so this was reflected by those under him.

"Personally Mister Devore, from me to you, I'll be quite open. You'll not find a better run military installation on this planet; whether that is under my command or my predessesors. As for our personnel, there again, we have the best in the world. So if you're looking for skeletons in the closet, I doubt you'll find any more than you would under any other command. You'll have no obstruction from me or my people." The other points brought up, weren't news. Requests for extra personnel had been put forward a year ago under Landry's watch, nothing has changed. What Sean was curious about, was exactly where all that 'black' funding coming out of the Alpha Site and into the coffers of the IOA was going. It was supposed to be funneled back into the Stargate Programme, which obviously it wasn't.

"I would have expected that would have come to us sooner. But as the old saying goes, better late than never. We're also in dire need of front line combat pilots for our three O twos and the AC gunships; that should be at the top of the list." What else was there to say? "Interviews with any staff of course will be dependent on where they are at the time of course. I do expect full cooperation from all of them as you would expect."

Nick could understand Sean's concerns, but there were many mouths to feed and one of them in particular had become even more pressing, especially given the nature of what her mission had unleashed upon this galaxy. "As you might expect, the Destiny expedition has been a drain on IOA resources; that they've been stranded on the other side of the universe with no means of support has left us to fund extensive research to aid in their successful recovery - and see a proper expeditionary team installed in their stead. We want to see them brought home as much as you do, Admiral. Unfortunately, that has meant that monies that should have been tabbed for your facility, for the fleet, for Atlantis, have been repurposed."

It didn't help matters that Earth was losing its investments either; her fleet had taken substantial losses these past few years. "Is the situation ideal? I can't say that it is, but we're all doing the best we can under the circumstances and I fully intend to take that into account during the course of my investigation. You may have had bad experiences with the IOA in the past, but we're not all the same." Even the SGC had seen its share of bad apples.

"I'll be mindful of the fact your personnel have a job to do. I don't intend to interfere with the daily operations of this base. You should know that I have temporarily issued orders to have some of your people and had them reassigned to new posts. However, provided you can address the IOA's concerns about these individuals, those same orders can be rescinded." Part of that had to do with General O'Neill requiring a reminder of who really called the shots in their little arrangement, or else Nick would have questioned Sean beforehand. If you wanted to play hardball, you needed to know your actions had consequences. "And, Admiral, you'll get your resources."

Sean leaned on his elbow, listening to the man. It would seem that he had all his bases covered and in some way dangling a few carrots in Sean's direction; carrots he didn't need at this point. "As far as I am concerned, the best we can do for the crew on the Destiny is hope that one of our allies can come up with something. I have a letter of recommendation that we wind down our own searches for them, we have done all we can and while we still have the stones, there is little else we can do."

As for the other points, Sean could only focus on so many things at once. "I'll take those recommendations under advisement. There are a few personnel placings I would like to see come to fruition anyway, so we might be on the same page on that score. But I do have to ask, what individuals do you have in mind?" He looked at his diary for a moment, then lifted his head again. "Could that be yesterday Nicholas?" It was the first time he called Devore by name.

"Come in, come in Captain." Sean said, looking up at the door. He couldn't see the fellow, yet his accent told him exactly who it was. The moment came none too soon either as far as the base commander's thought went; a new and fast ship with as much firepower that you could fit onto such a small vessel was sorely needed. "The fruits of our labours Nick, you've not seen the commissioning of the three forties yet have you?" He asked his IOA guest, at the same time he had a lot on his plate as well, he couldn't afford too many delays, even if it was only minutes. His thoughts immediately turned to the current situation, the Alpha site and he knew then exactly where to send the new cruiser.

"The IOA does not agree. It was Destiny that first encountered the El Aenir, presumably in their home galaxy. If there is a key to stopping them, perhaps the answer is there. The scientists currently employed both here and at Area 51 have certainly failed to deliver solutions." It wasn't that Nick didn't understand. "From what I gather, some of their technologies are similar to what we've seen, but they operate so differently. Not surprising, I suppose. The Ancients didn't indirectly influence their development. And the other species that comprise the El Aenir's empire must be just as different, if the Revenant are any judge. That's why we want to get a proper team onboard. The people there now just aren't cutting it."

He heard the knock at the door and looked back, recognizing the man from his file. "We can discuss possible reassignments when you've wrapped up with Captain Graves, is it? No doubt he has a report to make." And he'd be interested in what the ship commander had to say; that was part of why he was here, after all.

He then pauses again "apologies" he looks too Nick "Captain Eric Markus Graves, CO of the Marie Curie...is this a bad time?"

There was something in the back of his mind, prodding and poking Sean into recalling a thing he had learned about the Eldari, for the moment he couldn't put his finger on it; then like a bolt out of the blue it came to him. "I think Nick there is a way. The Eldari and their traveling portals. As far as I can remember, they only need to be familiar with the target destination, if they can see it or have knowledge of it, apparently they can go there." Of course there were limits as to how far they could travel, yet he believed that also depended on the strength of the user and that could only be either Sunniva or Baelor; the two strongest as far as he knew. "Make a formal request for a meeting and we'll contact them."

"Take a seat Captain." Sean told him, taking the flash drive, then slipping it into his computer underneath the desk. In seconds the status reports came up on the screen. It was impressive, such a small ship, slightly shorter than the old Prometheus, but wider and heavier; it could for all intents and purposes be flown by a single crewman, much like a fighter (if pressed, though it wasn't recommended). Heavily armed and able to punch way above its weight, it was primarily designed to go head to head with Wraith light cruisers, and initially all the three forties were going to be exclusively based in the Pegasus Galaxy. Fortune had it, that did not come to pass. "I'm impressed Eric, you've done well. The Britannia had more problems getting into service than you did. That is to be expected though as first of the line." He paused for a moment.

"Nick, the IOA recommendation was for two escorts for each capitol ship wasn't it? What do you think, we send the good Captain here to back up Caldwell and the Saggitta?"

Nick nodded grimly. The El Aenir were the latest enemy to prove just how much of an advantage they held over Earth. "That's the initial plan, after what happened with Daedalus and Odyssey, the need to institute our own fleets has become even more pressing. Captain Graves, we'll dispatch Marie Curie to the Alpha Site. I suspect, given their current troubles, they could use the added support."

But Davidson's speculation assumed the Eldari had someone strong enough to make a portal to travel across the universe, and he questioned whether that was the case. "Opening a portal between the Milky Way and Pegasus is one thing, Admiral. Trying to open one across the universe is quite another. I have serious doubts as to whether that's actually possible, but we can ascertain that more fully. I'd like to contact Sunniva, as soon as this meeting has concluded."

The military was so focused on the immediate solution that they ignored the politics of the situation. It would need to be more carefully examined and planned with their Eldari allies. "The El Aenir barely tolerate us as it is and having the Eldari suddenly show up in their galaxy, or use their abilities there could be regarded as a renewal of hostilities. The Ancients may be the only thing keeping the El Aenir from using their powers here, but they lack the same reservations there. The IOA fears this ceasefire is a temporary one, allowing them to bide their time, and the slightest misstep could set them off. Our last report from Destiny indicates the El Aenir have five dreadnoughts keeping a close eye on them; their way of reminding us of their superiority, I suppose. We could lose not only Destiny but our ships here, if we go about this wrong."

"I won't keep you any longer then Captain. You will have an official order and brief by the time you are ready to leave." Sean had his mind racing, there was only so much you could do with the given resources and even though those same resources were the best Earth had to offer, all too often they fell short. He planned to change that mindset. "Radio me directly fifteen minutes before you depart, the supplies will be available to you via a secure hangar at Andrews. Dismissed Captain Graves, it was pleasant to meet you, we should be seeing one an other sooner rather than later." Sean had been planning to revisit the Alpha Site, this new situation had brought that forward for him.

He fiddled with his pen for a moment, ticking off several topics on his diary as 'done' then looked back up at Nick. "I was never fully aware of how they did that in the first place Nick. It did seem rather bizarre to me from the getgo that such a thing was even possible, making a personal worm hole, at least that's what I would call it. These Eldari, as much as some would see them as the race that have filled the void left by the Asgard, others see them in a slightly different light. Nonetheless if they are any help at all, we should use what we can get. I'll arrange a meeting as soon as I can. Now was there anything else?"

Nick was almost finished, but not quite. He reached into his briefcase and retrieved six personnel files, placing them in a neat stack on the admiral's desk. A quick look would show that Captain Ruby Forster's folder was on top. "Look them over, Admiral. We'll discuss them at a later date." He expected that meeting to come sooner rather than later. "But the IOA is not easily dissuaded, particularly if we feel that our personnel would be better suited in different roles, or if we have serious concerns about them and would like to keep a closer eye on them."

The captain would appear deep in thought for a moment, but as soon as he was dismissed he would offer another smile that shows his teeth and causes his mustache too curl slightly.

The captain nods his head "Thank you, We will break orbit as soon as we can" with that he takes a step backwards, then turns and leaves the room, heading towards the elevator. as he walks from the room he pulls his pipe from his pocket and begins packing it as he walks.

"Good luck  Captain, I'll have that order sent to you directly." Sean replied, watching the Englishman leave. Strange how things changed in just a few short years. Where the SGC was almost entirely made up of American personnel, now they would appear to be in the minority, with the addition of so many from their coalition partners, British making a substantial number of those.

Sean slid the folders across to his side of the desk, his eyes widened when he read off the list. "Nick I sincerely hope this is a joke. April has long gone and I for one as Commander don't appreciate the humour in this. But since we're talking about a change of personnel, you are probably aware that retired General Landry will be taking up the position of leading the IOA board within the next week or so." That little piece of information was passed along to Nick, by both Jack and the President. Was there something in this? He knew there was, but as far as he was concerned, whatever the IOA were digging for, all they would find is a clean and honest administration.

"I'm aware of what General O'Neill and President Bomana want, but what they want they don't always get. The IOA is an international agency, not a federal one; and, as such, theirs is but one voice among many. Essentially, Admiral, they lack the authority to make a change in our operational structure." President Bomana's recent push in the UN to do just that had failed, but he still hadn't stopped his relentless pursuit, though the IOA had later offered an olive branch. "However, given our respect for Mr. Landry's accomplishments over the years, the IOA agreed to add a seat on the board, but he reports to our chairman, the same as any other."

Meanwhile, Nick carefully observed Sean's reaction to the files. Did the man truly believe his personnel were spotless in this? He would still hear him out; it was possible that the IOA had misjudged these six names. "And, I assure you, Admiral, the IOA is quite serious."

Nick reviewed his notes, prepared earlier on the private jet. "Captain Forster... we have been impressed by. The Head Nurse's position on Atlantis is a prestigious one. Would you deny her that promotion?" A second glance down raised an eyebrow. "Captain Hughes... an emotionally compromised officer who was taken as a host by an alien entity just a few months ago. He barely passed his psych eval... and you have him leading SG-9. One of the women you placed under his command, Senior Airman Bronwyn Heckman is viewed as a serious liability. We saw the censored reports you sent our way, but we know how close to death she was. You've been extremely tight-lipped about her. The IOA thinks it best to keep a close eye on her, since you have chosen to ignore our full jurisdictional oversight."

He stopped to clear his throat. "Staff Sergeant Bradley Cooper... someone who had a solid service record. He and First Lieutenant Harley Lawler are guilty of a breach of the UCMJ; specifically, fraternization between an officer and an NCO. You busted him down in rank, but left them on the same unit." As he came to the next name on his list, Nick could only shake his head. "Doctor Felger is the one I find hardest for you to defend. How do you justify keeping him around when he continually manages to screw everything up. Most recently, he completely fried Colorado Spring's entire power grid, which cost the IOA millions of dollars; money that should have been spent on the fleet, or the personnel you want. That you've tolerated him this long is a mystery."

He came to the final name; despite Doctor Felger's continued errors, hers was perhaps the most galling of all. "Lieutenant Colonel Sarah Davidson... an officer with an impressive track record, but who has very recently married... you. Do you really think it appropriate that both the base's commanding officer and executive officer are romantically involved?"

Sean tapped his lips with his pen for a moment, taking all of Nick's conversation on board. He did in fact have multiple files opening on his screen as the other man spoke and Sean was well aware of each and every case, to a point some of it was just a little too personal for his liking. He held up his hand, indicating each counter point with a finger.

"I'm sure Henry will be tickled pink over that Nick, he did after all retire because he was offered the position. You should know that his recommendation came before Bomana's election and it was from three of the senior members of the IOA, being the British, Australian and Richard Woolsey himself. But if that is the boards decision, I suppose he can live with it, for the time being." He lowered the first finger and raised the next.

This was out of both his and the IOA's jurisdiction. "Captain Forster's position comes under neither mine, or the IOA's realm of appointments Nick, you should know that. You can make recommendations, but whether the medical board listens to you or not is up to them; it would have to pass through Commodore MacGregor and General Merryweather as well, I would not even contemplate tangling with those two women. There is one other thing, non combat positions for Atlantis are voluntary aren't they?" There was another point with that as well. "You may want to consider that eighty percent of our medical staff are active reservists, in other words civilians. You start playing around on their turf and you can count on industrial action. They are the only part of our forces that are allowed to be union members, sad but true. Get up their noses and be prepared for wide scale repercussions. "

Next finger. "Robert Hughes is one of the finest Marines I know and he is a combat officer first and foremost. The fact is, he did pass his evaluation and that should be good enough for the both of us. You stick him in Area 51 and he will resign his commission and we'll have lost one of the most brilliant young men in the programme. Do you want to be responsible for that? All I can say, is we can watch him better where his." Next came down to Heckman, how do you approach this one.

"I'm going to ask you something. If I allow you to read Heckman's file, it stays here. You can then evaluate for yourself where she is best placed and I know your conclusion will agree with mine. She is best suited with an SG team. Beside Nick, if I were you, I would not get on the wrong side of that young woman."

"Cooper has suffered enough. Busting him and the loss of pay he incurred through fines was quite severe and as the saying goes, let the punishment fit the crime. Let it go Nick. As for Doctor Felger, he still has three years on his contract, you want to fire him, you'll have to pay him out and I believe its quite a sum. Send 'him' to Area 51, I don't care if he is looking after replacing light bulbs really, he is useless to me in any case."

Now he has touched on the heart and soul of the matter. Not only the mention of his wife, and money. He shoved a document across the table marked 'eyes only' Sabrina Mathhews. "You do realise where most of the IOA's money comes from don't you? I'm quite sure 'she' wouldn't be too impressed by this whole enquiry, not to mention the five and half trillion coming annually out of the Alpha Site that somehow seems to magically disappear from time to time." He brought up the last finger. "Sarah is my wife, which under the newly written guidelines of the country's defence forces is perfectly legal. I would point you to our Commander in Chief, I believe his wife is with him far more hours in a day than I see my wife. Apart from the fact she is only a newly minted Lieutenant Colonel, she is not qualified for the job. Now is there anything else?"

George bound up the stairs to stand outside the Admirals Office, He needed to ask if the Man had heard anything on SG-12, it may not be the British flagship team yet, But it had Fred and Gary on it, his two Senior soldiers, Officer and Enlisted wise, So it was close enough for him to worry about them, and seeing as nobody had bothered to keep him in the loop he was not a happy bunny, He mad sure his Springfield M1911A1 was holstered properly and made sure his DPM Trousers looked ok and did a button up on his SGC Polo Shirt. He Knocked on the door and stood at ease waiting for the Admiral to invite him in.

A knock on the door, disrupted Sean's concentration for a moment, a pause he appreciated given the current situation. "Excuse me for a moment Nick." He said candidly. Standing from his chair and rubbing his backside as he did so, the man had been sitting far too long for his likes, Sean went to the door.

"Good timing George, I hope this is important, can you drag me away from here for a while." He asked quietly.

"Ummmm.." Stammered George for a moment and replied quietly. "Sure sir." He then spoke at a normal level. "Sir I was wondering if you have had any infomation from SG twelve.?" He said stepping in to the room, this was how they did things, or atleast how the british did things, they were asked to do something and they did it the best way they knew how. He stood between the Admirial and the man in the suit was. Helping the Admirial to avoide eye contact, decreesing the communication the two men had. "I also wanted to speak to you about people carrying weapons on the base." he shrugged a little.

"No not at the moment unless Walter has heard from the Dreadnought. Which I'm sure he would inform me if he had George; which reminds me, we need to find out the ships status anyway, so if you don't mind, you can do that yourself in my stead from the control room." The second question was a curious one, though not normal US practice, given the height of security alarms in the recent past, having everyone with at least a side arm wouldn't be too impractical. "In the morning, when Lieutenant Brownwell is up, get her to write up a new base standing order that all personnel are to be carrying a side arm whilst on duty. Was there anything else?" He asked, giving Nick a quick glance.

Sean took a deep breath, keeping his voice low. "The rules of engagement are changing on a daily basis George. As you know in the short time I've been here, we have already seen one Alien incursion. With security our premium requisite at this point in time, I doubt that scenario is going to change any time soon don't you agree?"

Nicholas had the utmost respect for Mr. Woolsey, but perhaps he should ensure he had the necessary vote before he made promises he could not keep. Each nation's senior member held a place on the board, and it was they who elected the organization's Secretary General, a position which was currently occupied by Carl Strom, since 2009.

"I do know where all of the IOA's money comes from. I think, Admiral, you lack a fundamental understanding of just where that is. I'm familiar with Miss Matthews." Nick pushed the file back across the desk. "She funds very little of this organization. So… to be frank with you, I don't really care what her impression of this investigation is. In the meantime, she should consider herself fortunate that the IOA Field Operations Division did not act against her; though they still could, if we ever determine her to be a threat. We have been observing her since before the SGC knew of her presence here, and we will continue to keep her under surveillance."

But that brought Nick and Sean back to the heart of the issue, and while the Admiral had been engaged in a discussion with the British officer, he had given some more thought to the matter. "The moment the medical department started accepting our funding, even in part, they were subject to increased oversight, and that gives us a certain amount of control over their staff as well, whether they like it or not. And the IOA is very much interested in a woman of Captain Forster's abilities."

He wasn't unreasonable, however, and he redacted some of his original orders, but with a stipulation. "I'll give you Lieutenant Colonel Davidson and Staff Sergeant Cooper, though if there is so much as a hint of your relationships being anything less than completely professional, the IOA will step in. I'll also give you a tentative yes on Senior Airman Heckman, though if I don't like what I see in her file, I will reassign her, and that decision is final."

He wasn't about to bend on the final two files, though Sean apparently agreed with him on one."Captain Hughes is non-negotiable, unless you can give me a better reason than that. This planet needs its best and brightest to develop technology to combat the El Aenir threat. Or do you feel that Captain Hughes doesn't fit that description?" And, as for Felger's days at the SGC... well, those were over.

Sean shook his head as he accepted the file back from Nick, but what he hoped to keep hidden from his face was the fact that the IOA rep sitting across from  him just gave him a little more insight about the financial funding.  It probably wouldn't take much, he thought to himself as he looked into the eyes of the man across from him, to call in a few favors and force the IOA to keep their heads down.  I wonder where those funds are coming from, if not entirely from the Alpha Site operations nor from the funneled funds from Sabrina.  I don't know how much pull the Security Council has over the IOA, but I'd better find out, and fast.  Typically, Sean wasn't one to give anyone a free pass, but there wasn't much he could do about Nick's divulging that Sabrina had been watched long before he became aware of her.

He cleared his throat.  "While I have little doubt that your boss would like to see Captain Forster reassigned to Atlantis due to her skills, I seriously doubt that's the only reason why you want her moved."  Sean knew that Nick was probably still aware of his interference in denying the IOA the ability to keep tabs on Ruby during her downtime, especially with Sarah having stayed with her.  "I also thought that your boss had a little more appreciation for a Medal of Honor recipient, by giving her the option for her choice of duty instead of sending her halfway across the known universe."  That last bit Sean stressed by leveling his steel gaze with that of Nick for a moment.

Sean tapped the desk with his pen as Nick relented somewhat on Sarah, Bradley, and Bonnie.  "You don't need to remind me that I need to maintain decorum while my wife serves as my executive officer, Nick."  He shook his head slightly.  "Whether it's here on-base or on some diplomatic mission.  She knows she's to still give me all due respect as her superior officer.  As for Staff Sergeant Cooper, well, like I said, let it go.  He knows if he screws up again with Lawler, he'll have to face a general courts-martial, and I have the authority to convene one."  That much was true, given Sean's rank as a flag officer.  "As for Lawler herself, I can always have her dismissed from active duty if it comes down to it."

He stopped his tapping for a moment.  "I'll address Heckman in a moment.  Hughes has earned my trust, that's why I put him in charge of one of the SG teams.  He's ideally suited to be a team leader, being out in the field. Not a lab rat.  If you want to send someone to Groom Lake, and want to get rid of Doctor Felger at the same time, send Felger in Captain Hughes' place.  I'm sure he won't fry an entire power grid out there.  Vegas is too far away, and I'm sure the people of the town of Rachel won't even notice anything."

"Now, just out of curiosity, where exactly would you send Heckman?" Sean found it hard to believe that this civilian even had the audacity to try and tell a military commander where best his people should be. As far as he was concerned, the IOA could make all the demands they like. But at the end of the day, it was still up to him and the various heads of the different branches involved.

<<From SGC Levels 1-4 Main entry and Security Gate ~ Carpark>>

Roche had finally arrived at the center of this immense underground complex, having taken his time to examine the architecture of the places he walked, security arrangements, checkpoints, etc. One might think he was planning to attack the place, but that was what he had to plan against, so he imagined he was attacking it. And he could think of agt least a few areas to change.

Arriving at the command center, Roche made his way over to the Commanders office. Glancing inside, he could see the admiral was busy with a civilian, IOA related if Roche didn't miss his guess. And not wanting to interrupt, he took to waiting outside until that meeting ended, so he could introduce himself to the base commander.

Nick pondered Sean's question. "I guess that depends on what's contained in Airman Heckman's file; the one you've tried to keep secret from the IOA. Allow me to review it, and you'll have your answer within the day. If our fears are eased, I'm quite willing to keep her where she is."

Nick couldn't help himself, and really opened up for the first time with a small chuckle. Perhaps the Admiral was right, or perhaps he was just being paranoid. "If you feel my superiors have ulterior motives in regards to Captain Forster's assignment, Admiral, perhaps you should have that discussion with them. I can assure you, if that even is the case, they failed to share those reasons with me."

He wasn't trained to notice such things, as the Navy SEAL across from him was, but he heard the footsteps behind him. Little did he know that Colonel Roche, the SGC's new Chief of Security, had arrived. "I'm sure you agree that the El Aenir require our sharpest minds. It's been six months since their invasion and we've made very little headway in developing technologies to combat their threat, and that concerns the IOA, quiet as they may have been of late. I hardly think Doctor Felger will be the man to change that. Captain Hughes, on the other hand... he's earned his reputation, and at such a young age. That kind of success attracts the attention of some very powerful and influential people. But it sounds like we have company, again."

Sean listened as Nick continued to present his case.  It was clear that the IOA was operating under the pretense of "getting their money's worth," but at the end of the day it was still the SGC Commander's - Sean - call as to whom wound up where.  Politicians and their errand boys have no idea what military life is all about, he thought wryly as the IOA rep finished his latest spiel.  They like to call the shots, but when their very lives are endangered it falls to people such as those under my command to bail them out.  Mister Devore looks like he can hold his own, but I doubt his bosses don't have the first clue about running a military operation.  He cleared his throat and gave a slight shake of his head.  "I've had my reasons to withhold classified information from the IOA, Airman Heckman notwithstanding.  It's because I simply don't trust politicians whom seem to think they know more than I do, especially when it comes to running a military operation such as this one.  That same reason applies to why I'm not fond of the IOA wanting to move Captain Forster to Atlantis and Captain Hughes to Groom Lake.  Your top brass may think they have the same type of experience as I have, but they don't.  In fact, I'd be willing to bet you that only one person whom sits on that board knows what it's like to be in charge, and even he had to admit that he wasn't cut out for the job."  Sean was, of course, referring to Richard Woolsey.

He continued his diatribe, but kept his voice as reasonably calm as possible. "Politicians, I've learned a long time ago, are only interested in the military when it comes to the pursestrings.  They're only concerned about where their money is going, if they're getting top dollar in return for their investments.  It's all a game of numbers to politicians.  To them, a nineteen-year-old kid whom doesn't survive his first combat mission is the same as a veteran with twenty years' experience who dies in his sleep because his body wore out prematurely.  Sure, pols will make a show of it at the funeral, but do they genuinely care?  Hardly."   Sean shook his head emphatically.  "Nor do they care about who gets sent where, instead of consulting with their commanding officer first about that.  Which, in this case, is me."   He thumbed his chest, then lay his hands flat on his desk and gave Nick a steely gaze.  "If you think Airman Heckman needs to be moved after you look over her records, ask me where I think she'll best fit in.  If your bosses think Captain Forster needs to be moved; either her direct superior, the Tenth Medical Group Commander over at the Air Force Academy, or the Air Force Surgeon General will give me their input first.  And as I'm sure you're well aware, a two-star admiral doesn't give orders to a three-star general.  Nor can he supersede them."

"As for Captain Hughes...yes, I'm aware that dealing with the El Aenir threat is deserving of our attention.  I'll give you that much.  Yes, he's intimately familiar with them.  But his knowledge is best put to use right where he is."  He tapped his desk twice with a fingertip.  "Here, assigned to the SGC.  I'm sure that during any downtime he's given will be spent wisely, but I can at least ask him to start brainstorming on how to counter any of the El Aenir's movements.  You so much as move him an inch outside of his current role without my say-so, it only takes one phone call to the Secretary of the Navy to have him permanently reassigned to a Marine unit.  Then both the IOA - and this program - will lose out."

Sean caught some movement out of the corner of his eye, rather than hearing footsteps, from the window looking into the Briefing Room.  He glanced at his watch.  "That would be Colonel Roche, our newest Head of Security Operations.  Newly arrived from overseas, from what I was told.  Something to do with some concession or rather at the latest United Nations meeting. Stick around, if you don't mind.  I'm sure this will get interesting.  Besides, it wouldn't hurt to have the IOA's blessing."   That last part Sean couldn't help but give Nick a smirk, then he waved the Frenchman into his office.

Roche waited patiently, running through various scenarios in his head of what he would do if the various people walking past suddenly attacked him for no good reason while not paying overly much attention to the muffled chatter behind the door. That was remedied as he saw Sean wave him through into his office, though the meeting he had ongoing wasn't done. But the boss was the boss, and Roche nodded before stepping through the door.

He advanced into the room with a moderated pace, coming to a halt in front of the desk as he snapped to attention, saluting with crisp efficiency. "Colonel Philippe Roche, Légion étrangère, reporting for duty as ordered, sir."

"Provided Captain Hughes spends a reasonable percentage of his downtime doing just that, the IOA should be agreeable to your comprise." Nick couldn't hide a small smile that threatened to grow larger. His organization hadn't asked him here to necessarily make changes, but rather to make sure things were running smoothly, and right now he wasn't convinced that the move was necessary. "Perhaps not pleased, but agreeable. I'll caution you, though, Admiral. The IOA wants answers - and soon. If Captain Hughes fails to deliver them in this current arrangement, I won't be here the next time to stand in the way. The IOA may not be able to officially reassign your personnel, but they can put on enough pressure to make saying no a very bad idea, and enough political clout in Washington to make them think twice."

By this time Colonel Philippe Roche was entering Sean's office, and Nick gave the French officer a curt nod. But this was Sean's officer, and he would leave it to him address the SGC's new Head of Security first.

Sean said nothing to Nick as the latter tried to hide a smile from his face; whether it was because he knew something the admiral didn't, or the fact that he was merely spouting rhetoric to hide the IOA's true intentions, Sean had no idea. Devore is a man whom will need to be closely watched, was the thought as he stood to his feet and saluted the French colonel in return.  "Have a seat, Colonel," Sean invited, then once the new head of security sat down did he sit down.  Sean gestured at Nick.  "Colonel Roche, this is Mister Nicholas Devore.  The IOA's sent him here to be our monitor, to be their official spy and report back to them on a timely basis."  It was obvious from his tone just how Sean felt about the whole situation, but there wasn't anything he could do about it at the moment.  "Seems that with all the events that have gone on since I assumed command, the IOA's decided to take a little more interest."

Once the Frenchman was a bit more comfortable, Sean would get down to business.  "I don't know if you've had an opportunity to look over our current security, Colonel...?"  It was a mostly open-ended question, as he didn't know if his new head of security was briefed ahead of time or not.

Roche caught the nod from the man in the business suit, glancing down with a slight tilt of his head in return as his main attention was on Admiral Davidson. He took the offered seat, relaxing a little bit though still on his best behavior. Without comfortable familiarity he didn't take some of the liberties he might have otherwise done. He acknowledged the introduction given by the Admiral of Mr. Devore, and he was enough of a people person to know there wasn't much love lost between the two of them. He was still catching up on the terminology here, but the reports had made it pretty obvious of the conflict between the two agencies, and he wasn't expecting that to be much fun.

Roche quickly answered the question, though he made sure to not seem as if he was in a rush. "A bit Admiral. My government gave me some relevant files about current security arrangements, and I did see some on the way in here, but once I get to work i'll have to do a full inspection myself, just to be sure the reports didn't leave out any details."

Zulu. Now where had he heard that name before?  Oh yes, that was it.  Some type of hush-hush installation that he'd vaguely heard of, bordering on the edge of deep space and the void.  Supposedly it was under SGC control, but Sean never bothered with the heavy reading.  Now he was kicking himself for it.  As for the original subject currently at-hand; Roche, thankfully, was willing to perform a full inspection of the facility to make sure nothing was amiss, and Sean nodded as he reached for his desk phone.  "Stand by, Colonel, if you would," he said before picking up the receiver then pressed a couple of buttons on the dialpad.  Nick, he knew, would undoubtedly wonder how the old man was going to handle this particular crisis. 

Once Walter picked up the line, Sean would speak into the mouthpiece.

Robert marched up to the open door and rapped on it once. "Pardon the interruption, Admiral, but Lieutenant Brownwell said you needed to see me immediately." He didn't mention anything about Catherine yet; he was taking things one step at a time, and with the IOA present, this at least gave him a good reason to come knocking now. He didn't know anything about Washington DC, of course, but when your commanding officer told you to be here ten minutes after you actually got the phone call, it was generally a good idea to get moving.

Sean listened as the CO of Zulu Station spoke on the other end of the secured line.  Oh sure, he was listening carefully, but he half-wondered just why it was that an RAF one-star thought that he - a two-star admiral in the United States Navy, and the commanding officer of the entire Stargate Program - needed to closely pay attention.  As if I don't have enough on my plate, Sean thought wryly as Whitmore went on to explain the situation.  Yes, Sean was aware of the importance of Zulu Station.  Yes, he knew that it was crucial to protect and secure it by any means possible.  But if there was some type of viral infection making the rounds, causing many a crewman to "turn against their own", then that meant the necessary precautions needed to be taken. Including "scrubbing" the station.  Ergo, evacuate all healthy, non-infected personnel off the station and activate the self-destruct sequence.  Then quarantine the survivors until it was proven they were clean.  But it would be a cold day in Hell before he would allow any type of infection to spread to the rest of the galaxy.

He checked the status board.  Wasn't a cruiser already coming in?  The information was scrolling across his screen so fast; he could hardly keep up with it.  And sitting in front of him was the IOA rep and his new head of security operations.  Before he could speak, a knock was heard at his door and Robert came in, stating that he was summoned by Cheryl to report immediately.  Sean spoke into the phone for a moment. "Stand by, Commodore," he said to Whitmore before lowering it slightly and covering his hand over the mouthpiece.  "I take it you were successful in your mission, Captain.  Either way, you probably won't be able to get a whole lot of rest.  We've got a crisis situation at Zulu Station.  Account for your team members, then have all remaining SG teams report to the Briefing Room within fifteen minutes."  Sean then lifted the phone back to his mouth and removed his hand.  "I believe one cruiser and her support craft just now returned from their mission, Commodore.  I'll have someone verify, then as soon as she's stocked up again I'll send her out with those containment teams."

((OOC - Someone please copy/paste the parts of the convo with Whitmore to the appropriate pages; I'm in the middle of fixing a laptop and will need to run the database backup tonight.  Plus bathe a certain little boy and put him to bed.))

"Yes, sir, you could say that. I have Catherine – er, Flight Lieutenant Hughes – in the briefing room." He looked to that other room, where his wife, Bronwyn and Bryan all were arranged around the table, and back again.

Nick focused intense blue eyes on the marine, wanting answers. "I was under the impression she was dead."

"She got better," Robert quipped, keeping a straight face. Before he slipped quietly out of the office, he made a request of his commanding officer. He had concerns about its current makeup that he wanted to address. "Admiral, if I may, following your briefing, I'd like to discuss the status of my team with you as well."

Roche sat quietly, taking it in as the meeting was interrupted twice, first by a call from some RAF Commodore on a 'Zulu Station' which was a place left out of the reports he had received due to it being irrelevant to his job, and the crisis developing there. he didn't know much of what was going on, but it didn't sound too good. Earth diseases were bad enough; he could only imagine what an extraterrestrial one would be like. Which made him wonder what had gone to hell there that this virus thing even got loose in the first place. and instant brainwashing was not possible, and the only other option left was too stupid and much from a movie to be worth mentioning.

The next interruption was from someone in the Admiral's personnel, and Roche glanced up before returning his attention to Sean, only to be taken aback by the brief exchange about the person who had apparently come back from the dead. The reports had mentioned this happening to a 'Daniel Jackson' and even General O'Neil on occasion, and he was intrigued to hear of it now, if it was true. "Does that happen a lot around here," he asked, leaving it hanging whether that was a rhetorical question or actually serious. If he had to worry about dead people coming back to life, that wouldn't make his job easier.

Sean nearly let out a curse as the other end of the conversation was cut off abruptly, ending with a prolonged burst of static.  He immediately slammed the handset down in disgust, just as Robert said that Flight Lieutenant Hughes was, in fact, currently present in the other room.  The young officer also asked if he could discuss the status of his team after the briefing, and somewhere in the conversation the IOA rep was confounded as how someone could come back from the dead.  That very question was practically echoed by the new head of security, and Sean immediately grumbled something incoherent as he pulled out a desk drawer to fish out his boatswain's whistle.  Then he picked up the phone again and stabbed at the dialpad.  Within moments, he was able to dial into the PA system, and raising the whistle to his lips, he blew into the narrow mouthpiece, sounding the usual three-tone sequence.  He set down the whistle and spoke into the phone.

"All remaining Ess-Gee teams, report to the Briefing Room.  Repeat, all remaining Ess-Gee teams, report to the Briefing Room immediately.  Priority One situation."

Sean set down the phone again and looked into the faces of the three men across from him.  "Stranger things have happened around here, Colonel Roche.  Sooner or later, you'll find that the word 'normal' never applies to us."  He waved all three of them out the door.  "Captain, I'll be sure to address your question after the briefing.  But first things first. We just lost communications with Zulu Station, and my gut feeling is whatever's happened over there is about to take a turn for the worse."

Roche felt a slight frown come to the sides of his mouth as Sean addressed his question while dealing with everything else. He had the urge to rub his eyes and sigh, though he refrained from doing that as he had the idea the Admiral wanted to do the same thing sometimes. He should have guessed that this was one of those postings that was never an easy job. Which was why he hadn't asked what happened to the last Head of security. It would be better for his peace of mind if he didn't know.

As the admiral left, Roche contemplated what to do next, since the meeting was over due to more pressing matters. He could tour the facility more thoroughly, meet the people under his command, or just observe and see what happened. Considering there was a crisis or two, or staff rearrangements going on, he figured he could wait a bit, and opted to observe and get to know his boss.

Mind made up, he rose from his seat, nodded to Devore, and followed Sean.

If Nick had been in a good mood when he'd entered Sean's office, it had quickly dissipated when word of Zulu Station reached the SGC. If proper procedures hadn't been followed, he knew heads would roll - and his bosses would make sure of it. They were not the type of people to forgive mistakes on this scale.

Nick was curious to see how Sean handled all of this - at least one major crisis, if not two. The IOA wanted to know how the man dealt with a situation following the Last Battle, if that would become a recurring theme, or not. He followed the admiral and his new head of security out of the office.

"He'll see you now, General," Sean's secretary told him. He Linde went inside, saluted, and took the proferred seats. "I"ve sent my reports, but I wanted to go over it with you. Plus Linde was actually running the ship, so she can give her observations. He reached over and touched a control, and a 3D display activated, showing the the fleet action. Steven and Linde adding commentary as the action unfolded. They both pointed out mistakes made, lessons learned, and changes in procedure. "I've also sent you my recommendations for the Fleet.

"Admiral, it's your call. Do we transmit them the landing coordinates or not?"

Sean had ben following the proceedings ever since Walter's first call; he of course would have been there in 5 seconds, if only he didn't have to be in his office waiting on two very important calls, one of those from Sabrina Matthews and the status of their ships. He had to be there for that, the other, from Doctor Svensson. "Stephen, what can I say? If Anne wants to stick her neck out and her Government has given the green light, go for it. But, I advise caution with these guys. Make sure you send a message to SGC HQ Woomera, to have their SAS people so thick on the ground, the flies won't get a look in."

An urgent message blipped on Sean's screen, it was an update from a message sent a week ago. Apparently the coding had been scrambled and the original message was unreadable.

"To Admiral Davidson.

You and the presence of your good lady Sarah, are required at the Palace of Trees, dated this day at 1900 hours your time. We apologise for our earlier message being indecyperable, our coding at the time was not compatible with yours due to security updates.

Sean slipped on his reading glasses and looked at the message on the screen.  The original message had been undecipherable; this obviously was a second attempt to reach him.  It was from the Eldari, requesting his and Sarah's presence at a diplomatic function which was pending.  Today.  He groaned after reading the message a second time, taking off his reading glasses before pinching the bridge of his nose with thumb and two forefingers, squinting his eyes shut.  If there was one thing he utterly hated, it was being pushed into diplomatic functions.  Sean was no diplomat.  He knew it, and everyone he'd ever worked with in the past knew it.  But if he and Sarah had to be away, he needed someone to act in his place.

He picked up the phone and punched in a numerical sequence, then spoke into the mouthpiece.

George bound up the stairs, three at a time, he felt like he was being called to the head teachers office, then he realized in that Metaphor, he was one of the assistant head teachers so it couldn't be that bad, especially if Sarah was going to be there. "Sir?" he asked as he passed through the Briefing room and tapped on the door. "You wanted to see me Boss?" He said as he stood in the doorway at ease. The Admiral was not wearing a hat, so he didn't get a salute and George had walked in to the room so he had no need to stand to attention. He looked around the office a little. Fred had seen the office in the hand commanders, George had only seen it under Landry and Davidson, But the place defiantly seamed more organised under the Admiral. In fact the desk was almost identical to George's own desk in one of the man, less important, rooms of the base with the exception of George having little plastic palm tree's and dinosaurs bluetac-ed to his desk. A bad habit he had picked up whilst he had 2 broken legs. being confined to a desk meant he needed something to entertain himself with. Turned out a bucket full of toy dinosaurs from a friends daughter was the solution.

Sarah slipped into the office behind George, taking her place by the wall.  Something was certainly off.  Sean looked frustrated.  "Sir?" she asked, trying to read the expression on his face and also hoping that he didn't notice how pale she still was.

George arrived first, then Sarah not long after.  Sean's computer pinged again; he glanced at the incoming message from Sabrina, indicating that her spies had picked up on movement, and there had been some loss of life as a result.  Sean tried to think for a moment what Sabrina was referring to - he'd have to get someone to take care of that for him.  And that person was now in his office.

More news.  Two new ships had been launched and would be no doubt going through a shakedown.  But time was of the essence.  He gestured for both of his subordinates to take a seat, then he leaned over to prop himself against the edge of the desk.

"I just received two communiques," he said.  "The first was from the Eldari.  Diplomatic function, and from what I know it's never a good idea to refuse their request, especially if we're to keep in their good graces.  The second was from Miss Sabrina Matthews.  She's just sent word that two of the ships she's been building have left drydock and will no doubt will be undergoing trials.  Also, someone of interest - I forget whom at the moment - is on the move and she's lost some personnel as a direct result.  She thinks her target will probably head for Hong Kong."

He looked at Sarah.  "The Eldari asked for you and me specifically.  Hopefully, you've been cleared for continued duty.  I'll pass on word to our IOA contact of what's going on so he's aware."  He knew this next part she wouldn't like, but he had to say it.  "This diplomatic function is considered 'white tie'.  You'll need to wear your evening dress 'A' uniform, Sarah."  That meant Sarah would have to wear the long dress skirt (http://www.marcorsyscom.usmc.mil/sites/mcub/library/images/URFigs/Fig2-2.gif) normally associated with female Marine Corps officers. "I'll be in formal dress myself, but without the cap.  We have to arrive at the Palace of Trees on the Eldari homeworld at 1900 hours our time.  Tonight."

He then looked at George.  "George, you'll have the conn while Colonel Davidson and I are away.  Hopefully, we won't be gone too long, as much as I don't like the idea of being called away while we're still dealing with the aftermath of our crisis at Zulu.  Get in touch with Miss Sabrina Matthews - I'll be sure to leave her contact information for you - and find out if she needs any of our teams to be dispatched to help her out.   Also find out from her when we can expect the next cruisers from her shipyards."

Sean then looked at them both.  "Any questions?"

Sarah slipped into one of the two chairs, feeling a little nauseous at the moment.  She pushed that away though and gave Sean her full attention.  Her eyes widened when Sean mentioned Sabrina.  Something must be off, but then who was after her?  Sarah didn't have long to think about that as Sean continued on.

She managed not to grimace as she nodded.  "sir," she answered with a respectful nod.  Good thing Sean didn't know about her little secret yet and also that she hadn't gained any weight.  "Dr. Svensson said I'm good."  she managed to catch herself right before saying that she needed to take it easy though.  That would only make Sean ask questions.  Ones that she wasn't ready to answer.  She glanced at George as he seemed miffed by this.

Sean looked up as his fleet commander and the tactical officer from the Saggitta walked in. Caldwell asked to have the IOA send a diplomatic team to Woomera, having said he'd given his word to begin negotiations.  Lieutenant Commander Wettin then announced that her father would be arriving within a couple of days as the new German liaison to the SGC...and would be wanting a full tour of the installation. Additionally, he would be staying with her until her mother arrived.

Sean turned to Sarah.  "I guess we still have some time left before having to depart for our own diplomatic shindig with the Elarin. Do me a favor; send the message to Devore and let him know we'll need the IOA's best negotiators sent to Woomera ASAP.  If he wants to know whom we're dealing with, I believe that would be the Thraskelion, from what I recall. Just tell them not to screw this up. I don't feel like rescuing a bunch of talking heads. Then let Roche know we have a new permanent house guest on the way."

George then voiced his objection about not caring what his government wanted, nor that he didn't want to be in charge of anything...he just wanted to sit in the CO's chair.  "Trust me, I know what you're talking about. I was content to remain as a Navy Captain and in charge of a SEAL team. Did everything I could to stay there, including pushing off my promotion. Twice."  Sean held up two fingers. "Only problem was, the politicians in Washington thought differently.  Apparently they thought I was capable of much more than commanding a SEAL team.  They thought I could be capable of being in charge of an entire military operation."  A wry smile came to his lips.  "I don't care much for politics either, George.  Never have. Never will.  But as long as I'm a commissioned officer in the United States Navy, technically my paycheck comes through the Department of Defense. Even though it's bankrolled elsewhere." He didn't have to say it, but he knew as well as everyone else in that room that it was the IOA whom held the pursestrings.  "Which means that, since they're paying me, I have to do what they ask of me. Including sitting in this particular chair.  I'm sure it's similar with the British government when it comes to you.  But that's besides the point."

Sarah closed her eyes briefly, feeling slightly lightheaded at the moment.  "Sir," she said, standing up to leave.  Perfect, not only did they have to go off world she had to track down Devore and Roche.  What fun and when she felt so lousy.  She walked out of Sean's office, heading for the briefing room to make the calls.

George seemed to be resigned to the fact that he would need to fill some pretty big shoes while his boss was away on a diplomatic mission.  In the meanwhile; Caldwell, Wettin, and Sarah all headed out to carry on with their respective duties.  Sean looked at George, and shook his head.  "Nothing out of the ordinary.  Just whatever team you've led in the past, you'll be doing on a much larger scale.  Caldwell still is the fleet captain, so he has some very broad powers to do what he feels is necessary when it comes to fleet ops.  He'll still look to this chair, however, if he needs clarification or if he needs specific orders on a matter."  He thought some more before continuing.  "The SG teams, likewise, will be looking to you for their mission orders as we have to deal with various hot spots here and there."

"Roche - that's our newest chief security officer - won't issue a general lockdown order without your say-so.  Any unfriendlies come calling," he pointed out the window at the gate room, "Have Roche dispatch a security detail with rifles at the ready.  Likewise, if we have any guests arriving, just be sure to greet them and be nice to them while they're here."

"If you need any help, Lieutenant Brownwell and Chief Master Sergeant Harriman are two very valuable resources you can rely on.  Otherwise, if you think you need to delegate some of the duties, tap someone as your temporary XO until Colonel Davidson and I get back.  Hopefully, we won't be too long at this ballroom dance.  I have two left feet and don't need to mistakenly step on anyone else's toes."  He shook his head.

George yawned a little bit as he stuck his hands in his pockets. "Aye sir, I get it, dont rooster up." He said nodding a little as he walked out of the commanders office, he didnt expect to sit in the chair for long, if at all.

No sooner than George left the office, Sean took a look out into the briefing room.  Roche, Devore, George, and Sarah were having a little pow-wow, no doubt going over the latest set of instructions he'd just been given.  It was likely Devore would be the first to have any questions; perhaps it would be best if he remained in his office for the moment to see if the IOA rep would be asking questions.  Questions that would need to be addressed by someone else.  And that individual was nowhere to be seen at the moment.

He saw George speak to Roche and the French officer seemed to acknowledge whatever was said; apparently the two were to work in tandem while the actual CO and XO were away.  He sighed and shook his head.  Life had never been simple for him, even with all his years in the service.

It was time to key in the message to Cheryl and Walter to let those two know what was going on.  He brought up his email program and began to type.

Sean quickly keyed in the message for Walter and Cheryl.

LtCol Davidson and I have been formally invited to a high-level diplomatic function off-planet and will be heading out within the hour.  Cols. Sanderson and Roche will be acting CO and XO respectively until LtCol Davidson and I return.

- RADM Sean Davidson


As soon as he hit SEND, he quickly keyed in the other message he was supposed to have sent off earlier.  It wasn't easy being in charge of an entire military program.  Hopefully, a certain Eldari knew that.

LtCol Davidson and I will be departing within the hour.  Apologies for not replying earlier to your inquiry.  Busy schedule and all.

- Sean Davidson, RADM, USN, CO SGC


He hit the SEND button, then locked his machine down before quickly rising from his desk to find Sarah.

Sarah quietly shut the door behind them as they stepped into Sean's office.  She found herself wanting to pace and nearly gave into it, but that would only make matters worse.  She really just needed to come out and tell Sean, but this was not how she had planned to do it.  quickly while they were getting ready to head out once again.  It felt wrong to her, but he had to know and right now this might be the only time they had.  Once at the Ball it was hard to say if they would have any real time to talk.

<<From Briefing Room>>

Sean maneuvered behind his desk as Sarah shut the door behind her.  He picked up the phone and dialed a set of numbers for the base's quartermaster office; however it wasn't the usual quartermaster but rather some random airman whom answered.  "Davidson here. Bring up Colonel Davidson's dinner dress from her personal quarters.  Yes, the full-length dress skirt, blue dress jacket, red cummerbund.  Also bring up mine as well.  Yes, the white jacket will be fine, paired with the black dress pants, black formal tie, and gold cummerbund.  Yes, make sure the miniature medals are displayed properly on both jackets.  Just knock on the door to my office.  Thanks."  He hung up the phone and looked at his wife.  He made sure to soften his voice a little to let her know she was free to speak her mind.  "Alright, Sarah. Let's talk. Just you and me. Husband and wife. Completely off-the-record. What's on your mind?"

Sarah listened as Sean had their dress uniforms sent up.  she wasn't looking forward to getting dressed up, but she also knew that they needed properly represent the SGC.  Her stomach knotted up as Sean turned to her, letting her know that they were free to speak.  She nibbled her lip as she debated how to say it.  It finally just seemed like a good idea to just come right out and tell him.  "I'm pregnant," she blurted, not having meant to be that direct.

Sean stopped and slowly looked into his wife's eyes.  Did she just say what he thought she said?  Pregnant?  He sank into his chair, his eyes still widened.  Immediately all sorts of thoughts went through his mind.  How far along was she?  Was Chimri going to have some type of impact on the pregnancy?  Furthermore, was it worth risking his wife's health by having her continue in her duties?

"...how far along are you, Sarah?" he finally managed to ask.
Title: Re: Stargate Command- Level 27 - Commanders Office
Post by: sorra on August 14, 2014, 12:49:17 PM
Sarah wrapped her arms around her waist.  She could see the uncertainty in his eyes.  She hadn't wanted to cause added stress like this.  They were both dealing with enough as it was.  And with both Alpha Site and Zulu Station, it certainly wasn't a good time to find out your were pregnant.  But she couldn't change that and she wasn't giving up their baby.

"About two months," she said softly, looking down at the floor.  She feared he would be upset.

For a moment he just sat there, letting it all sink in. Two months. She was two months pregnant with their child. Just then, he heard a knock on the door.  Sean got up from his chair, took the two formal uniforms from the airman along with dress shoes for him and pumps for Sarah, thanked the airman, then hung up the uniforms on a nearby hook.  Then he walked up to his wife and put a hand on her shoulder, then leaned down.  "We'll get through this together, Sarah. You, me, and Chimri. I know you're probably feeling scared and alone. But remember, I made a promise to you to be at your side as your husband, lover, and best friend.  I'm not going back on my word."  He gently kissed her on the cheek.  "You'll make a great mother, Sarah," he whispered into her ear.  "Now, let's get dressed and get through this formal function. We'll celebrate after we come home."

Sarah nearly jumped at the sound of the knock.  Yes, she had known that their dress uniforms were being sent up, but she had let her mind wander, something she didn't do.  she looked toward the door as Sean collected their uniforms, still trying to get a read on her husband's thoughts.  She herself was terrified.  Sarah looked up in shock as Sean spoke softly in her ear.  "I know it's not a good time," she said softly.  "And I am sorry about that, but I'm not sorry to know I'm carrying our little one."  A slight smile touched her lips as she moved to get dressed.  At least Sean wasn't angry.  She couldn't have handled that.

Sarah glanced at the door before turning back to Sean to make sure he was ready.  She was dressed, just hadn't pulled her hair back yet.  Once she was sure that he was dressed she walked to the door and opened it.  "Come in," she smiled, hoping her face didn't betray the conversation they were just having.  'We were just finishing up."

Post by: Robert Laurel on August 20, 2014, 04:32:54 PM
Steven and Linde entered at Sarah's call. Steven was in his dress uniform, medals gleaming on his chest. Linde wasn't. She was clad in a blue, blllowy skirt with a high-necked white bodice, designed specifically for her by Vera Wang. She was wearing calf-skin gloves up to the elbows, and her only ring was the signet ring of her House. Around her neck she wore a thin chain with a golden cross. Her platinum hair hung loose down to her waist. On her head was the gold coronet used by her ancestors when they were Prince-Electors of the Holy Roman Empire. Smiling girlishly, she swirled around to give them a chance to look. "Do you like it?"

Post by: sorra on August 20, 2014, 07:22:11 PM
Sarah nearly clapped her hands in glee.  Yes, she was still a woman and she loved clothes.  "Oh, you look gorgeous Linde," she smiled, wishing she could leave her own hair down.  She knew it wouldn't be appropriate though.  And Sarah had to admit, it would have been fun to dress up a bit besides just her dress uniform.  It wasn't exactly feminine.  She reached up and started to wind her hair up in a bun while she waited for the go ahead from Sean to head out.

Post by: Robert Laurel on August 20, 2014, 07:52:17 PM
Linde smiled at her and touched her coronet self-consciously. "Somehow it seemed kind of appropriate to wear it to a formal visit to the Eldari. This is only the fourth time in my life I've worn this. The last time was at Will and Kate's wedding."

"Well, it looks perfect for tonight," Sarah assured her.  "I'm envious.  I would much rather be able to dress up then have to be in uniform."  She didn't care if Sean heard her.  It was true.  She never really had a reason to dress up and every once in a while it was nice to put on something fancy and feel like a woman.

"Some day Sarah I will take you on a real shopping trip, on me," Linde said, smiling. "I think the Admiral here will like the result. As an Admiral's wife, you will have a lot more social occasions that will not require wearing a uniform."
Title: Re: Stargate Command- Level 27 - Commanders Office
Post by: sorra on August 20, 2014, 08:22:09 PM
Sarah's eyes lit up at the thought.  "Oh, that sounds great.  Thank you Linde."  She smiled over at Sean, wondering just what they would come up with.  "Mmm, you are probably right."  She hadn't thought about all the occasions she would have to have to wear formal clothing.

Sean was about to say something when he heard someone knock on the door. Sarah was already dressed in her own formal dress uniform; her hair wasn't fixed yet but he knew she would make sure it was properly done up.  By now he had just finished dressing in his own dinner dress uniform; the miniature version of the many medals he'd earned over the years hung proudly from their proper place on his white dinner dress jacket.  On the shoulders were the gold hard shoulder boards with silver insignia, indicating his rank as a Rear Admiral.  He also sported a tuxedo shirt, black bow tie, gold cummerbund, dark blue dress trousers, and polished black shoes.  His cap was laying on the desk, that would be picked up just before it was time to leave.

General Caldwell, likewise, was in his dress uniform, yet his tactical officer chose to wear a formal ball gown instead.  On her head was some type of gold coronet; Sean wasn't sure what to make of it, but didn't say anything.  Perhaps at some point he would be able to hear the entire story.  Linde - Sean never thought of Lieutenant Commander Wettin as anything else, not even by her first name - explained she thought it was appropriate to wear such an outfit as part of a formal visit to the Eldari.  Sarah then said she wished she could be in something else, to which Linde replied she would take her on a "real" shopping trip, and that Sarah would have more social occasions that didn't require wearing a uniform. That was when Sean cleared his throat.  "That may be, Commander, but she is not only an admiral's wife, she's also an officer in the United States Marine Corps, and the executive officer of this program."  He made sure to keep his voice light.  "As for this particular social occasion, just remember that we're also on a diplomatic mission.  The Eldari have invited us as I'm sure they want to ensure our continued partnership.  I intend to keep it that way."  He looked at Caldwell.  "Sanderson and Roche will be in charge while we're away. Lieutenant Brownwell and Chief Master Sergeant Harriman will help them out."  He then reached over to get his cap, then tucked it under his arm.  He then offered his other arm to Sarah.  "Let's head out.  Don't want to keep our hosts waiting."

Sean was a bit surprised to see George standing at ease in the doorway; the British officer seemingly caught off-guard that the admiral was, in fact, still present.  Giving the junior officer a brief once-over, Sean simply settled for a shake of his head. "Hadn't exactly left just yet, Colonel," he said. "I probably said this before, but it bears repeating. All of this may seem a bit overwhelming to you, but don't be afraid to use the resources you have available to you. In my experience, a good commanding officer listens to the input from his aides, carefully weighs each option presented to him, but ultimately decides what course of action to take. I could go over countless examples of the skippers I've served with, but since we're pressed for time I'll simply sum it up for you:  A good skipper always keeps his head in the game, isn't afraid to make tough calls when the situation calls for it, but will listen to sound counsel from his staff.  A good skipper encourages and fosters teamwork, looks for constructive solutions, doesn't shirk accountability or responsibility, is confident in his actions, and always strives to remain optimistic. A good skipper does his best to be honest not only with himself, but with those under his command.  He also knows how to plan ahead and stay focused, and strives to inspire those around him."  Sean simply looked George in the eye. "He also does his best to be courteous towards others. If you manage to pull that off consistently, Colonel, you just may find yourself wearing a general's insignia before long.  Now that you've heard my little pep talk, carry on."

He then nodded once to George before looking at the others around him, and then gave the diplomatic team the move-out signal to head to the gate room.

"What is it sir?" she asked as she put her hands in her pockets
"Do you have the number for Sabrina Matthews?" Asked George and the young woman nodded.
"Yes I do sir." She smiled as she passed over a sheet of paper with a number on it..
"Thank you." He said as he picked up the phone and Harly left.
The phone started ringing and when somebody picked up he spoke.

He then covered the mouth peice, just incase, for some reason, the woman that was in charge of there spaceship production and their infomation on Ba'al didnt have the power to call for a lift. "Harly, get somebody to tell the Apollo to beam her here."
Harly nodded as she lent over and pressed the button on the comm to the gate room, as she had no way of contacting the Apollo and had no right to do it her self.
"Chief Master Sergeant, can you please Contact the Apollo and have them Transport Sabrina Matthews to the SGC please?" She asked nicely. She knew most of the Americans just called him Chief, but to her, and many of the other British Personal, calling the man Chief just sounded stupid.

George sighed as the woman hung up on him, he was still confused with what he had said to upset her, then again, he was still confused by why the Admiral had picked the British Leasion Officer to be the temporary base commander, and nod somebody that was actually part of the system, some body that would attend staff meetings. He sighed. "Jesus Bloody Christ." He sighed as he picked up the hand set of the phone to stop the annoying. 'The other person has cleared.' voice and he couldn't resist slamming the phone down two or three times.

Harly leaned back a little in her chair and sighed. It was obvious to see that he was not in the best of moods, but as she hadn't heard half of the convocation she didnt know why so she remained quiet.

"You know." He mumbled. "I told my self I would leave the military when I became a Colonel, I didnt want desk job." He sighed as he leaned back. "But here I am. Should have quit when they made me a colonel." He sighed as he ran his hands down his face.
"Yeah, Major Rivers said the same thing, he's not going to go past Lieutenant Colonel." Said Harly with a shrug. "He thinks that when he does the MOD Will put him behind a desk." George nodded
"They Will." He said as he looked at her. "Lieutenant Colonel is the last rank to be in the field." he shrugged.

"We don't have much time Colonel, so I will be as brief as I can. You want Ba'al out of the picture as much as anyone does; by you, I mean Earth." Sabrina watched the young woman leave, such strange behavior she thought. "Assets of you secret service branches from several nations are on standby, all that is needed from you is at least one strike team to accompany them. You may not catch him, as its possible he has already left, but you can begin to erode his assets here and make his life a misery." She sat back, not knowing how this officer would respond.

"Well, as far as I know, the officer we have about that's had the most experience with the goa'uld in General is Rivers, but he's an infantry man, so when they get back, I could set SG four on the task, unless you know of a better team we have around." he said. He was disorganized, through no fault of his own, he had been awaiting reports on the SG teams current professions ever since the admiral took over, under Landry each team had a role, but now, they just seamed to do what they wanted.

Without wanting to divulge just how much Sabrina knew of the inner workings of the SGC, she had to feign ignorance and make pretense for the moment. "I'm sure your teams register in the data base would tell you who is available Colonel. You only need to look in here." She tapped the computer screen with a finely lacquered nail.

George looked at her, he had spent far to much time around people he didnt trust, he knew that, because he knew she was lying to him. "I know you know more than your letting on." He said as he crossed his arms. "And I know what teams are free, but we no longer have dedicated teams in perticuler roles. If you want a free team I am know SG-6 is avaliable, feel free to go speak to chief master sergeant heriman, he will find them for you."

"That, Colonel is up to you, I cannot ask or even be known to be involved in this, I am merely the messenger at this point. Who you chose to attach to this mission is entirely within your means to do so." Was her face that obvious? "I know possibly more than I should, enough to endanger my own life. Merely being here puts me under a great deal of threat, which I assume you would be aware of. But I offer this to you as its no secret. The CIA is heavily involved in this and are waiting on your call. Here.." She drew out a card, Sydney Bristow's card (http://lostworlds.megabytetechsolutions.org/index.php?topic=755.30). "Call her as soon as you have your team ready. Or call her now, at least to let them know you have been briefed. "

What did he say? Sabrina checked herself before she even thought of slapping the man across the face. She stilled her thoughts and emotions, sitting there impassively and offering to him. "Colonel, irregardless of your thoughts of working with an 'alien' you should know very well how deeply I am in this. If you don't, then why are you even with the Stargate program? But I digress, would it not be quicker to call Lieutenant Colonel Lee?" The moment she said that, Sanderson would be aware of just how much she did know. "Use the base CCTV to find him, or would you like me to do that for you." She could also repay in equal sarcasm.

 At last Sabrina's frown left her face as a wicked, though humorous thought occurred to her. "In my former life, if I hadn't already taken his head off, I would have made your my first Prime, Colonel." But she kept herself calm, only the corners of her mouth betraying her slightly. "I believe Colonel Sanderson, that may well get his attention."

"Come in, come in Colonel." George waved the former Ori battle leader in. "I assume you know Miss Matthews here? Anyway, I'll brief you in a moment, apparently I have a call to make." George looked over at Sabrina, he did of course read the card she gave him and the phone number looming large in his eyes. "Just a moment." He tapped out the number on the phone, waiting for it to ring, leaving the phone on speaker so the others could hear.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/SydneyBristow2_zpsf7e798ca.jpg)

*phone

"Sydney Bristow."

"Ah yes Miss Bristow, its Colonel George Sanderson here from the SGC. I'm calling you about a certain arrangement that came to my attention via a Miss Sabrina Matthews. You have your people on standby I take it?" He didn't want to say too much over the phone of course.

"Yes I do Colonel. We'll meet your people aboard the Apollo in fifteen minutes if that's not too soon?"

Fine sounding young woman he thought, George looked at the others, taking in Sabrina, she nodded affirmative to let him know that would be good timing. "No, fifteen minutes will be fine. Sanderson out." There it was done, now it was time to give Donovan the low down.

The door opened, and the former Ori soldier entered, face composed in its usual slightly eerie serenity.  He snapped a salute, turned to close the door, and gave the woman he actually didn't know a nod.  He hadn't been at the SGC long enough to catch up on all the details, but it wasn't an oddity for outside contractors and civilians to be present so he didn't question it yet.

At the mention of fifteen minute mobility, he arched his brow, folded hands behind him in loose parade rest formation, he kept his mouth shut and waited.  No one had asked him anything and even though he showed up alone and apparently without gear, he waited for orders that would make the gear a requirement.

 So far, he had managed to do the small parts without a hitch, George was feeling reasonably pleased with himself, so far. Now comes the hard part, sending personnel into an unknown potentially hazardous situation. "Take a seat please Colonel, but don't get too comfortable, this won't take long. Miss Matthews, I believe you can brief Colonel Lee better than I can."


(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Athena_zps60b85ac0.jpg)

"Of course, thank you Colonel." Her hands were clasped together, on the desk, her eyes looking squarely at Donovan, waiting for him to be seated. Did she need to introduce herself? Perhaps not, the man should have by now been briefed on her, if not, that would take place as they spoke. "How much do you know about the System Lord Ba'al." Starting a briefing with a question was never good way, but this was an important part of the briefing.

Looking between the two, a faint line formed between his dark brows then smoothed.  He didn't know this commander, and it was clear he wasn't known himself, so as he sat, he clarified "I'm just a Lieutenant Colonel, Sir." Arranging himself with an upright bearing and squared shoulders as if at attention even sitting, hands loosely folded in his lap. 

As the woman asked her question, his fingers interlaced and he tilted his head faintly to one side, "Last of the official 'System Lord' regime, famous for his work toward gravity manipulation, political intrigue, subterfuge and misdirection, as well as the only known goa'uld to perfect the replication process of cloning to any successful degree. Official SGC records claim his final death with the extraction ceremony on the new Tok'ra home world witnessed by the original SG-1 members Brigadier General Jack O'Neill, Colonel Samantha Carter, the free Jaffa Teal'c, civilian contract Doctor Daniel Jackson, new SG1 member and OIC Colonel Cameron Mitchell, and Vala Maldoran."

His faint arch of brows and straightening of his head indicated he'd finished reciting what he'd memorized, though of course he had no access to 'unofficial' channels or records within the SGC.

"I know that son. I'm being economical with words this morning since this post was thrust on me unawares; so you'll have to forgive my brevity as I'm still catching up." George scratched at his chin, he needed a shave. "That would be the version recorded I believe. And as I understand it, there was more to it, am I right Miss Matthews?"

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Athena_zps60b85ac0.jpg)

Sabrina nodded in agreeance. "It was found sometime later, before I knew at least. That what they thought had been him, was in fact another clone he had kept hidden for this very purpose. It wasn't until the Tok'ra examined the symbiote closely that it had been identified as a clone." That was around the time the former Athena started coming around to the Tok'ra way of seeing the Universe and life itself. It was not long after that she had surrendered to them.

For a moment, Sabrina thought of the many evil things she had done in her time, a feeling of guilt washed over her, knowing that most of that was in service to Ba'al. She would live with that forever now. She looked up, her eyes showing something rather intense. "He still has assets here on Earth, most of which revolve around crime and corruption. Effectively, Ba'al controls ninety percent of the worlds illicit drug trade and that is centred around a facility in Hong Kong. Your mission Lieutenant Colonel Lee, is to co-ordinate with the CIA and its affiliates in shutting him down. This will be the first step in many."

George listened intently, God how he wished he could be going with them. He all but felt he could resign this desk and do it, only that he would need to do a lot of explaining if he did so. "From what I can gather, this is going to be fairly routine search and destroy. Have the Chinese been brought in on this? It is their turf after all."

"Yes they have. They will have their own teams in place Colonel. The Apollo will be used as your transport Colonel Lee and your CIA counter part will be Agent Sydney Bristow. Do you have any questions?"

The line had returned to the space between his brows at the prospect of another Ba'al loose and free to run around unchecked and unchallenged.  The zealot crusader in him rose to the surface briefly and his face darkened as they continued to mention vast holdings and influence on the world he now called home and swore to defend.  As the woman stopped talking he leaned forward without hesitation; by mental count he only had ten minutes to meet the deadline the Commander had given the lady on the phone. 

"Brief questions then for expedience."  The first he directed to George, "Is this sanctioned assassination or gathering of resources?  Are we hunting, or gathering?"  To Matthews he fired off before the Colonel could answer, "What is our exposure window, what is our insertion point, and will we need to brief the team from the civilian sector?"  Finally, again directed to George, as he was the OIC at the moment, "Who's in charge, the SGC, or the CIA?"  Chain of command was drilled into him even before he'd enlisted in the United States services, and that last question was the most important. 

Mental count; nine minutes...

The older man looked at each of them in turn, he knew all too well what both Earth and the SGC required. "We cannot risk capturing him again. We know only too well how that goes down each time. Neutralise the element I would say the correct expression would be. You are authorised to use whatever force necessary. As to who is in command.." He looked up at Sabrina for that answer.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Athena_zps60b85ac0.jpg)

"As far as I can esteem, this mission was initiated by the SGC and IOA. The civilian agencies were brought in to guarantee success and ensure this thing stays quiet. That being so Lieutenant Colonel Lee, as I understand the working of these things, you would be in charge of the mission. I would though, out of courtesy, once you meet with the CIA, you nominate Miss Bristow as your second. She is as they say here on Earth, a seasoned veteran."

"Well, I can add no more to that Lee, get out of here and good luck. Just radio Walter when you and your team is ready to be picked up. Dismissed." At that point, George stood, that was always the signal to move.

Donovan stood as the commander stood, and he reflexively saluted to the unspoken order, even though only one or two of his questions had been truly answered, there was a schedule in place, and he was meant to fill it.  With out further formality he turned, and left the room.

She herself stood now, it was time to go, Sabrina would call Sydney on her way out. "I think he got the gist of it Colonel. Neutralise the element is as much as saying assassinate him. I'll keep in touch, good day Colonel." With that the former Goa'uld Athena left promptly. That name fading more and more with each step.

As she headed out, Sabrina pressed send on her Nokia, it was a pre-worded message to Sydney, it was time.

"I have no idea at all sir. I thought since they knew our number it might be someone important." George was now a little nervous. Did he screw up? He also took the hint, vacating the chair rapidly making for the exit. "If you don't need me any further, I should go check on the gate room or something."

{Admiral Sean Davidson} NPC

Sean raised an eyebrow at the man, he was at least amusing to have around. "No, that's fine George you can go." By the time he had the words out, Sarah had arrived. "That was quick." He said candidly, there were still a few things he had to get used to in this married life. Sean always thought women took their time getting ready for just about anything.

The other man left them alone, for one he didn't like being around married couples too much and secondly he was starting to think he should not have answered that phone so willingly. In hindsight he realised he should have had Roche put a trace on the call.

"Admiral Sean Davidson, SGC." He switched the phone to speaker so that Sarah could hear as well. While he waited for a reply, his hands were busy going through the logs. He stopped short when he saw the data stream from a few hours ago. "Jesus. Sarah, get Jackson up here immediately." Ares, he was making his play. So much for all his 'I come in peace' BS.

At least part of the message in the PA might have told him with feeling, but he couldn't put his finger down on it. Turning into the doorway of the room, he rapped on the open door of the commander's office and asked his question to Admiral Davidson in one word, "Admiral?"

"Just give him the phone, he'll know who I am," was the reply to Sanderson, before the phone was, as requested, handed over to Davidson. "Hello Admiral. This is Lord Ba'al.I'll be brief. We're both busy men after all."

There was the sound of muffled gunfire from the other end of the line, before Ba'al resumed. As you are doubtlessly aware, your men are currently assaulting my facility. I'm going to have to ask you to withdraw them immediately, and refrain from touching me or my assets in the future."

"Just a moment Daniel." Sean held his hand up, indicating his current status of being somewhat engaged. A rather embarrassing moment since he had asked Sarah to call Daniel up. Such was the lot of Commanders, it was always one thing or another and this time. His ear though was trained on the phone call, not surprisingly his eyebrows shot up when he heard the reply, that caused him to do some rather fast catch up right there and then, reading back through the last files submitted by Sanderson. He'd forgo the title, just as Jack and Hank before him would have done. "Ba'al, I know you have dealt directly with the SGC before and my predecessors would have told you the same thing. We don't deal with terrorists period. Now I will give you a little piece of advice; either you get your arse off Earth now, or we will bring forward much more force to bear than what you currently face."

He held his hand over the phone for a moment, tapping his desk intercom phone. "Miss Zhao I'd like you to come to my office immediately please."

"Alright," Daniel responded as he leaned his body against the doorway and crossed his arms.

He looked a bit concerned as his expression turned serious. Whatever was going on between the Admiral and whoever he was calling seemed to be concerning. Especially when the recipent on the other side was recognized as the one called Ba'al. He remembered that time he was with Jack and that was back before when he had a symbiot and Jack was under captive by Ba'al. He knew that even if he was ascended that he couldn't interfere no matter how much he wanted to.

Sean held his hand over the phone tightly. "I've got old Boche' on the phone, can you believe the nerve of that creep? We now exactly where he is and he is threatening us?" He would laugh but anything connected to Ba'al was far from humorous as far as Sean was concerned. "Doctor Jackson, Sarah we have an invite from Ares to attend some kind of summit he is hosting shortly in fact I think you'll both have just enough time to get there." An audio recording of the message started to play as he spoke, right at that moment Tayeela of the Free Jaffa came to them- Sean waved her in. He let the playback finish before speaking again and to determine their reactions to it.

Ba'als response, when it came, was casual. And all the bone chilling for it. "Tell me Admiral, do you know what the detonation of a twenty gigaton nuclear weapon looks like? I could certainly arrange a demonstration for you. New York, perhaps? Maybe Los Angeles, London, Rome, or one of the other cities I have such a device hidden in. So many options, so many people.

Now then, if that wasn't clear enough, I will speak plainly. Withdraw your men and refrain from interfering with me or my assets in the future, or I will bring about immediate Disclosure through the complete obliteration of a major city here on Earth. And in case you doubt me, I would like to remind you that during my war with Sokar I destroyed two star systems and killed sixty million people to preserve my own life. I am more than capable of doing this.

As Daniel remained leaning against the doorway, he continued to listen the conversation between the Admiral and Ba'al on the other end. He sat upright as Sarah joined him at the doorway. Seconds later, Taleeya joined and smiled when she recognized Daniel. He smiled back and nodded at her, "It is good to see you too. How are you?"

There wasn't a moment to spare when Sean hand his hand over the phone and explained what was going on. There was a audio playback going on as Daniel continued to listen. His expression changed a bit as he felt little anger with Ares tone, but he kept his expression hidden. They were invited to offer their thoughts so Daniel cleared his throat and spoke, "Obviously I will have to defend our allies when we get there. Ares cannot be allowed to take charge. The summit will not happen without a voice of reason."

Sarah fidgeted against the wall, something she never did.  A summit?  Her skin started to crawl as she listened to Ares words and she could feel Chimri's disapproval.  "Admiral, I can't go," she said, standing straight.  "With all due respect, I am now technically one of those shol'va.  We could lose Chimri again," she reminded her husband.  She hadn't been a host long, so she didn't blame her husband for forgetting.  Not to mention it would be putting their unborn child in significant danger.

Now he was in a fix, Daniel needed a pilot to fly a 401 to this damned summit as well as some form of official representation from the SGC military. Tayeela being there now helped a little and he could assume Ishta sent the girl ahead to do some ground work for both sides, he doubted her coming a mere social call. Then a bright spark, one of those light bulb moments hit him. "Obviously Daniel. So I think you're the expert on this not withstanding Chimri of course, what's the one oh one on symbiotes jumping hosts? You all know what I'm thinking don't you? Chimri takes a vacation with me?" A mad plan but one that could work. "Tayeela your timing is magnificent." A truer sentiment couldn't be said.

Now to Ba'al. The Goa'uld was bluffing, Sean knew that as sure as he knew how much he loved his wife. "Ba'al you and I both know you're lying so lets cut to the chase. Suppose I give you the benefit of doubt and go along with your little demands, you do know what will happen next? The Chinese Government will step in with full force and damn the consequences; they'll blow that pretty little building off the face of this Earth whether you're in it or not. Then they'll cover it up as they always do, you've lost and possibly dead. So I ask you, what does that achieve?" Even as he spoke, Sean had a channel open to his Chinese counterpart, sending the automated transcript of the conversation.

Taleeya was a bit confused.  "It is?" she asked.  She wasn't sure what had been going on here, but things seemed tense.

Sarah's eyes widened in alarm.  "Is that even possible?" she squeaked.  So much was happening, but she knew they couldn't chance endangering Chimri.  She barely managed to catch herself before setting a hand on her stomach.  This would also endanger their unborn child, but that wasn't something she couldn't get around.  She still had a job to do and duties to uphold.  She just prayed that things would go smoothly.

"Am I lying? Surely you should know that if anything happens to me, as a result of actions by you, the Chinese government, or the IOA, then my associates who currently have the bomb in their possession will set it off, and I shall have one last bit of revenge from the grave as Earth descends into anarchy and chaos through economic collapse and sheer panic. I'm sure that's the sort of legacy you want to leave the world for your tenure as SGC Commander, isn't it?

She had pressed the button to the Elevator and she instantly wished she took the stairs. The thing stopped between floors at one point for a long time. Then finally opened on the floor she wanted. She walked into Admiral Sean Davidson office and took a seat quietly, hearing the last bit of the conversation going on between him and Ba'al. She sat in the chair with her knees to her chest and her head on her knees.

Sean couldn't have asked for a better deal now that Tayeela was here. He wouldn't have to endanger Sarah or Chimri for that matter either and most especially their baby. "It certainly is. I am going to assume you're here because of Ares's summit meeting and in that, Sarah here was going to pilot a 401 for Doctor Jackson. But since you're here and I know your people have been doing well with your own small squadron of the same aircraft, how would you like to fill in for Sarah in this task?"

It was getting busier by the moment and he had to clear everything away as quickly as possible. "Yumi, get yourself geared up with armory asap, then head to the gate room and have Walter call up the Apollo. You're going to Hong Kong." As simple as that, one more on the ground ferreting around will only serve to bring this to a faster finale.

Now he had to inform the President of what had transpired. With the red phone in hand, he was soon in conversation with his old friend. "I understand Mister President. I'll let him know." he was of course referring to Ba'al.

Setting the red phone down, he spoke again to the Goa'uld. "This is the deal Ba'al from the President of the United States and his counterpart in China. Pack up and leave now with your skin intact, we won't stop you. Or, the Chinese government will enact emergency procedures without warning. I don't have to spell it out for you, you of all your kind know exactly how twitchy the Chinese can be." He looked at his people, knowing they would sense the danger and knowing Earth will not bargain with the Goa'uld no matter what. That was the policy he was given and he followed orders like any other soldier or sailor.

Sarah managed to bite back a smile.  She hadn't wanted to go, but would have as it was her job.  She hated though that she wouldn't be there to help.

Taleeya nodded.  "I can do that," she answered, glancing at Sarah.  "And yes, that is why Ishta wanted me here.  Is there anything you want me to watch out for?"

Sarah moved over to Sean's side.  She hated being emotional and this pregnancy wasn't helping.  "You guys be careful."

"Very well then its settled. Doctor Jackson you have a go, you will be our voice of reason I have no doubts on that and from me, give em hell son. Tayeela, my wife Sarah here can at least give you some help to get started." He gave Sarah an affectionate hold of the hand. "My personal 401 is safely secured at the Alpha Site, she can take you both there and square it away with General Chalmers on my behalf. The coordinates for the summit have already been downloaded to the crafts computer. Now get going the both of you before I change my mind and go myself!"

Daniel nodded at Sean's response and stayed quiet for most of the conversation. He was in deep thinking to figure out or plan what they were supposed to do. Obviously Ares had to be stopped before he could actually take power. For a Goa'uld to take power spells bad news. He responded, "Thank you, Admiral. I will do my best."

He turned to Taleeya and responded with a smile, "Yes. I am ready. Let's go."

A conclusion to events would appear to be on the horizon, one event at least for Sean. At the very least he wouldn't have to be worried, no petrified about any imminent danger Sarah might be in, so having her remain behind was a boon to him in this case. "God speed both of you. Doctor Jackson, I should add you'll need to wait until Doctor Svensson has come through with her patient - once she's here have Walter radio ahead then redial the gate." That part done, there was only his wife to escort them as far as the Control Room. "Sarah, you know what to do."

Now to Ba'al, Sean took his hand away from the phone again. "Ba'al you would know more than I do at the moment, for some reason I am unable to radio my teams. So its up to you as I am quite sure you must have a hundred or more bolt holes out of that place. I will though contact our ship and advise." A few quick inputs on the keyboard and Sean was in contact with the Apollo.

"Colonel, this is the Admiral. Ba'al is pulling out, I'll need you to try and contact Lee and Bristow and have them pull back to a perimeter one hundred metres distant. Once we can confirm the Goa'uld is clear, send them back in and make that building so clean you could eat you dinner out of it." There was more to this and he knew it. "Oh and Colonel, whoever Ba'al leaves behind you and I both know he'll have given them orders to destroy everything, don't let that happen please."

As all three of them, Sarah, Tayleena and himself, turned to leave the commander's room, the door was closed with an affirmative shut. Daniel was ready for the summit. He wasn't sure if he was ready for another war, but that was why he was there in the beginning. To prevent one. He lead the way toward the Gateroom.

Finally he had a moment alone, yet not in his mind. The issue with Ba'al still rested there and more than likely the Goa'uld would plague him to no end in the future- Sean was certain Stargate Command would cross swords with him again. Looking up from his reverie, he noted an email in his 'inbox' that wasn't there a moment ago. Once read, Sean had a rather pleasant smile on his face, at least something good had finally eventuated in what had been a rather busy morning.

"Only thing to do." He said absently to himself, then he pressed the PA announcement button on his desk panel. "Lieutenant Commander Wettin, please report to the CO's office."  Some days it did pay to get out of bed.

"No time to change yet Linde?" Sean teased, he could well draw this out to a long session if he chose to. But such was the turn of events lately he was afraid something else would pop up and spoil things as usual. "Take a seat for a moment, I have something to show you." He turned the monitor of his computer around to an angle so she could see the email.

Linde chuckled at the Admiral's teasing as she sat down. She peered curiously at the screen as he turned it in her direction and broke out in a delighted smile as she read the message. "Mein Gott!" she squealed, something which she did rarely. "Danke, Herr Admiral!" she said, reverting back to her native language. "My papa will be so pleased." She studied the email closely. "My date of rank is after Maria's but before Otto von Beck's." She turned her dazzling smile on the Admiral. "Sam Carter and myself are trying to get Maria released from the Medical Unit so she can recover at my home. Now we will have something to celebrate." She stood up. "By your leave, sir?"

It was obvious to Sean that some of his people were quite easy to please and of course he could rightly understand Linde's enthusiasm and excitement in this case. Sean had been in almost the exact same situation as she was a few years ago. "Congratulations Commander, I will be the first to say that you've earned it in spades." That would be Aguayo of course and to him it sounded a good plan for the young woman. "Of course Linde and by the way, tell Maria from me, I will look into it personally in regards to Colonel Donovan."

Just as he was about to stand and offer her a firm handshake, he caught sight of his CMO out in the Briefing room. "We'll talk again soon, as usual I have a busy day ahead of me. On your way out, could you ask Doctor Svensson to come in please."

"Jawohl, Herr Admiral," Linde said. Turning to leave she saw Carrie Svensson in the Briefing Room. "You're to go right in, Doctor." She saw where the other woman was looking. "El'dari diplomatic function," she said by way of explanation. "They wanted me to attend as Countess Wettin rather than as Commander Wettin." She nodded and smiled and went on her way to the Medical Unit, just barely able to conceal her glee and excitement.

She continued in to the Admiral’s office and walked over to stand in front of the desk, the cup of espresso still in her hand, “Do you have a couple of minutes Sean? I know you’re busy, but I promise I wont be long, ok?”

With mild amusement written all over his face, Sean watched the newly minted Commander leave, feeling more than pleased with himself. He was still wearing that face when Carrie came in, so he did his best to cover. "I think she might be trying to bring in a little colour to the dullness of the base. I'm not overly sure if it'll catch on though." With that out of the way he could see his CMO wasn't about to sit, even if he went around to pull the chair out for her. "For you Carrie I can give you as much time as you like. What's on your mind?"

Carrie raised a brow about the comment of the dress, “Yeah, could be. Anyway,” she took a deep breath and plunged head on in to the reason of her showing up in his office.
“I just got back from the Alpha site with a severely injured pilot. Second and third degree burns as the major issues and something I’d really like the specialists in the Springs deal with rather than us. The thing is though that he seems to be of an Alternate reality origin. He’s got a chip but we can’t get a reading of it and the way he apparently talks about people and places… Dr Flemming is having him stabilized as we speak, but with your permission I’d like him out of here as soon as possible. For his own sake.”
Taking another sip of the strong beverage, she looked at Sean, waiting for him to take in the news.

"Am I going crazy Carrie or did you just say this man was from an alternate reality?" No, she did say that, Sean was certain of it and he wasn't hearing things, his hearing was perfect as much as perfect could be. "We're going to have to deal with it here I'm afraid, there have been far too many security breaches out of Springs for my liking and this- this would send the IOA absolutely insane, with the end result we've both be out of a job." He had to think, surely there must be another way and he knew it had something to do with O'Neill. "Carrie do me a favor and pull out Jack O'Neill's medical file, I'm positive beyond doubt there is something in there we can use to get around this." Something was scratching at the back of his mind, something that had something to do with life and death situations and the former base CO.

The reaction on Carrie's face was priceless, Sean enjoyed putting his people on the spot and it wasn't a fiendish streak in him either. Just his way of ensuring the people around him knew in the future where they could stick their nose in when and where required. "Of course you can. There may well be sections of his file that are restricted even to you, so let me know if you hit a snag." He turned the monitor around to face her, then pushed the keyboard and mouse over to her side of his desk. It both were on the very end of their cables as he did this, so he popped his head under, pulling the desk top tower closer, giving both devices more slack for her. "That should do it."

Carrie gave Sean an amused look, “Ever heard of wireless equipment?” then removed Sean’s card from the reader on the keyboard, inserted hers and logged in.
She quickly found O’Niell’s file and started scrolling down the pages as she skimmed its contents.
Halting at an entry made back in -02, he apparently had contracted some kind of virus when visiting Antarctica, making him end up with a symbiot for a shorter period of time. Carrie lifted her gaze from the screen, “Don’t suppose you have a Tok’ra laying around? Nahh, not very likely… Sorry.”
With a small sigh, she read on and halted just another few pages down, “A sarcoaphgus maybe?”
Most likely not or she was pretty sure she'd known about it.

"Hate the damned things to be honest with you Carrie, I had both wireless keyboard and mouse here a while ago and got rid of them. Only ever worked half the time and the mouse! The most useless piece of technical garbage I've ever encountered- no old school will do me, and I'd even prefer to go back even further if I could." He was on one of his rants, but only for a moment. "But then if we did that, neither of us would be here would we?" A half chuckle was thrown in at that point for good measure; the man needed to laugh a lot more than he had been doing so of late.

"Hmm, no but the Odyssey has some kind of Asgard stasis pod. Is that the same?" He wasn't sure as he had only glanced over Jack's file in small doses, such was the size of it.

She couldn’t help but to grin at the Admiral’s aversion towards new tech, but also recognizing some if it. Having lived with a tech geek for the last 20+ years sometimes made her feel the same way.
With a frown, Carrie grabbed the cup of Espresso to finish it up and leaned back in her chair, “No, not exactly… but if,” she looked at Sean guessing what he was aiming for, “…and I’d like to emphasize the if, we can adjust it to his physiology, I guess it might work. It’ll sure as heck save him a lot of misery during the healing process. Where’s the Odyssey right now?”

Almost as soon as Carrie had the words out of her mouth, Sean was looking for the ships transit logs in his neatly hand written diary, each ship listed alphabetically with notes attached for each Captain and crew. He also used that same diary as his back up for most everything, should the inevitable system failure ever occur as it almost did not so long ago with the El Aenir. "She's due back in less than an hour, her patrol will then be taken over by the Apollo. Which reminds me, I need an update from our teams in Hong Kong." It had been a while now, Sean wasn't overly anxious as he knew he had two good teams on the ground there; so rather than wait for a hook up with the Apollo itself, a quick phone call to Bristow would make things easier. He was reasonably certain Lee never took his cellphone with him. "I think from what I know the Asgard technology is adaptable to most sentient beings Carrie- excuse me a moment please."

He grabbed his own phone from a drawer, quickly typing out a text message for the CIA agent. "Agent Bristow, call me asap and make sure Colonel Lee is nearby." Simple and effective, that was all he needed to do.

Pulling in a slow and deep breath, Carrie followed the Admiral’s actions, then decisively, got up on her feet.
“Look, you’re obviously getting busier by the minute Sean, and I’ve kept you occupied long enough. I’ve got the information I need and we’ll make sure Takeda is ready for transport the moment the Odyssey gets back in to orbit.”
She logged out of the computer, put the IDcard in her pocket and grabbed the empty mug before heading for the door.
She turned towards the man when she reached the doorway with a little grin twitching in the corners of her mouth, “Take it easy Sean or I’ll have you as my guest sooner than any of us wants to, ok?”

While it was true Sean felt busier than he had been in a very long time, he always made it a point to make time for his team, more especially so his medical staff- after all if it weren't for them, most of the SGC personnel wouldn't be here at some point in their collective careers. "Sometimes I wish it was merely a figment of my imagination Carrie, I'll wake up at another time in my life and all of this will have been one very large hallucination." He was of course joking, partially at least.

Another interruption, another duty to perform as noticed the alert ping on his computer. As Carrie stood, he turned the monitor back around, the mouse he was already pulling it towards him with the other hand. "I might even make that an official appointment soon. My latest physical is overdue by two weeks, which I don't have to remind you do I?" He stood, as a gentleman would when a woman was either coming or going from his office. "You  take it easy yourself, or I'll be hearing from Doctor Warwick that his CMO is losing the plot. Don't overwork yourself Carrie, you do have help. Now if you'll excuse me once again, something else needs my attention." With that he left her at the door, he didn't want to appear rude but getting the base in order and its staff took priority more often than he wished.

Without even sitting down again, Sean activated his radio. "Walter, get hold of Jackson and my wife Sarah and tell them to return. That Summit meeting thing is a bust, I'll explain it to them fully when they get here." This was more than convenient, he would be sending both of them to DC before the day was over.

Carrie grinned, “Not a chance Admiral. Warwick isn’t fully potty trained yet in the duties of an XO, so losing it isn’t an option for me. I’m fine, but I appreciate your concern.”
Before she closed the door to the hallway, she called back, “I’ll set you up for Tuesday at 10 am then,” and then the door closed and she was out of sight.

As she spoke, Sean was already making notes, one in particular to remind himself of the appointment; the other was to make sure he never got on the wrong side of his CMO. "I'll be there Carrie, now please get you butt moving and find out how that young man is doing. Call me if you need anything further."

Even as Lee spoke, Sean was sending an email to the IOA bureau Chief and if they wanted to do something about any possible outfall, they could. Sean wasn't a politician, as far as he was concerned they were a waste of the air they breathed, except to grant the funding that pays him, he wouldn't give the average politician the time of day. "Very well then Colonel, bring your team home. I'll see you on arrival, Davidson out."  As he replaced the phone, he pressed send on his computer, that was all he could do for now.

The 'Old Man' didn't miss a thing on most days, this being one of them. He had the files in front of him at this very moment for all the new transferees to various bases, ships and installations, the new Marine being one of them and much to Sean's pleasure he was going to be added to his old friend Jordan O'Neil's happy little group on the Alpha Site- more he would most likely be transferred to Atlantis along with Jordan when she ventured out into that brave new world. He had other papers in front of him, Lucille's recall to the Pentagon to take up a new post, replacing Jack as Chief of Homeworld Security and Colonel Paul Davis's transfer from Antarctica to the Alpha Site to replace Lucille. On top of that, he had written to the Pentagon and received approval to send Lieutenant Colonel Lee with his team to the Alpha Site. He would be replacing Jordan in the role of Executive Officer there. Yes, it was going to be a busy day for him as usual.

Before he could say another word, an email came in from the Pentagon regarding the mission in Hong Kong. The Chinese had put the clamps on the whole deal some ten minutes after the SGC's team insertion, more or less telling Washington and the IOA that they were taking over the whole show and would deal with it in their own way. So much for communication. Sean printed out a copy of it, stuffing it into his pocket so that at least Lee would be aware of what had happened.

"Thank you Chief." He had lost count of how many times he had said that even just today. "Come in please Sergeant, I won't keep you long, take a seat." His first order of business would be to address the young man's sense of protocol, otherwise he is going to end up in sick bay with a case of RSI in his arm.

 "Yes Sir"   Sane states as he lowers his salute and quickly took a seat in one of the chairs in the Admiral's office, staying silent as he really didn't know what to say.  His thoughts here and there as he fidgeted, Never knowing what to do in an office instead of the field.   "Admiral? Is that really a gateway to another planet?"   He asked, Almost nervous of what the man's answer might be, as he wiped his sweaty palms onto his fatigue pants.

"Don't mention it sir, just doing my job." That was Walter's lot until he retired in three years time, doing his job and damned proud to do so. "I'll inform Major Sutton she will be seeing the Sergeant soon sir... I'll see you around Sergeant." With that he ambled off in the direction he came.

"I'm a man of few words Sergeant so I'll get right down to tin tacks for you. You were selected on your record and background for this assignment and I won't lie to you either; what you are about to embark on could well be the most dangerous experience you've ever undertaken in your life. Are we clear on that?" Sean was quite confident the young fellow would be, his service record was full of some quite remarkable battle situations many would fail at completely. "Once you've been cleared here by my medical staff, you are being temporarily assigned to our Alpha Site under Commander Jordan O'Neil, a former SEALS officer and someone I trust implicitly. I will assume you have a lot of questions, so lets get that out of the way before we proceed."

 "Yes Sir, Completely Sir"   He voice rang out in response to the Admiral, knowing that when the Admirality said it was dangerous they really meant Suicide mission with almost no rate of survivability, Which was where Sane strived.   "I only have one question sir, which i'm sure you've been asked a million times over Sir"   Stated the young Sargeant as he recalled his briefing in Quantico.  "Am i really going to a different planet to wage war with aliens Sir?"  He asked almost hoping this was a joke or a dream.

If Sean was completely honest with both himself and the Marine, waging war was the last thing he wanted, or Earth for that matter. Going back over the last fourteen years, the planet had only managed to dodge a bullet by the skin of its teeth and then some; holding our own, keeping the wolves at bay was the key here. Still, he had to admit, taking the battle to anyone who might seek to take advantage of Earth was something that had to be done regretfully. "Yes, though in my short tenure here Sergeant, not as often as I expect my predecessors have been asked. You will not only have the chance to go to other planets, but other galaxies and travel in our own battle cruisers, working with some of the most skilled and respected people on this planet. You will meet allies of Earth as well, many of them human, related to us through the activities of certain alien species over the last million years or so."

Absently, Sean looked at his watch, noting that time was moving ahead of him. "If you have no further questions, you'll be required to sign this. Its a standard non disclosure agreement." Quite literally signing your life away. Sean pushed the thick folder across the table with a pen.

He nodded to the Admiral, having to hold back a nervous chuckle at the revalation.  As there meeting was ending Sane would stand and take the pen before signing the disclosure and handing the admiral his pen back.   "Aye Sir, I beleive the Chief mentioned a medical check Sir."  Stated with a quick salute to the Admiral before moving around the chair to once again hoist his bags onto his shoulders and await further orders.

"Very well then Sergeant, I'm satisfied we're done here. If you have no further questions you can proceed to Med Bay on level twenty one. When you manage to find your way up there, you'll be seeing Major Kimberly Sutton, our Senior Nursing Officer; when she has completed what she has to do with you there, report back to Chief Master Sergeant Harriman in the Control Room." He took the disclosure agreement from the Marine, holding it for a moment before placing it in his 'out' tray. "Chief Harriman will have your movement orders and further instructions. Dismissed."

As he spoke, Sean saw through the cracks of the door the flash of an Asgard Beam. He knew immediately that would be Lieutenant Colonel Lee making his arrival. He pressed the intercom to the briefing room. "I'll be with you in a moment Colonel."

With a quick salute to the admiral after he stood from the chair, Sane would once again lift his bags onto his shoulder and promptly exit the office and head down the stairs and through the command center. After exiting the command center and making his way down a few more steps, he would pause for a moment outside the lift and stare at the stargate once more before stepping into the lift and selecting Level 21

The old man wrinkled his brow, he was certain the kid wasn't due back on duty for another two hours. Damnit, no matter what he or Sarah did or said to the girl, she was determined to be the base go for all, no matter how much sleep she didn't get. "I'll talk you later Lieutenant." With a nod he dismissed her and then turned his attention to Drake.

"Well now Colonel, it has come across my desk that you have successfully completed your training in the simulators for the 310 and as a coincidence the Victory is going to be officially launched this week." He felt rather proud on that fact, Sean himself had taken the ships progress into his own hands. "It also seems you are a good friend of Captain McFearson is that correct?"

"Be careful you two." He said at the end of the conversation, as well he had assigned six SF's to accompany them.

He placed the phone down, worry on his face. "Good morning, or is it afternoon?" He said to the three of them, waving them into his office.

Georg chuckled as he reached over the desk to shake hands with the admiral. "I know the feeling from when I was a brigade commander in Afghanistan." That done, he moved to take one of the chairs ranged around the desk. "I've spend the last week in Washington DC hearing General O'Neill and others sing your praises. The reason I am here is that my government has become concerned with what we are hearing from the IOA. There are considerable gaps in what we are being told and what is actually going on. What we hear from other governments is vastly different than what we hear from the IOA. Plus when it comes to IOA funding of Star Gate Command and associated organization, we see a vast amount of money coming in, but no accounting of how it is spent and where it goes. It is like it is being poured down a vast black hole. I'm sure you can understand the Chancellor's concerns. Plus the Chancellor is concerned about reports that SGC is very badly undermanned, that you do not have enough personnel here or at your Alpha Site. She is especially concerned about Alpha Site; it apparently does not have enough ground forces to adequately defend it and it does not have enough fighters to provide proper air cover. With your concurrence, Germany is prepared to remedy that. This is being done at considerable cost to my country. We will be diverting personnel and equipment from our buildup in ward off any possible Russian aggression to building up SGC. The Chancellor, the Minister of Defense and our service chiefs consider it this important. Also, to be frank, we hope to shame other nations into contributing more. We have been preparing this for months. Once you agree, we can start moving personnel within the week."

Sean had to lean on the desk merely so he didn't drop off to sleep, not that his present company had anything to do with it at all, no it was simply that he hadn't slept well last night, apart from the fact that he and Sarah hadn't even managed to spend more than a couple of hours together, he was in a word, fried. He'd need more coffee and sooner rather than later.

He listened though, listened well and the things that Georg had told him only served to enhance his own opinion of the IOA. But, there were one or two points that neither the IOA knew, nor anyone outside his small cadre of confidants. He pulled a single sheet of A4 paper from his drawer, then passed it across; Steven had seen it, as had his wife, Lucille Chalmers and about three others including Jack O'Neill. "You can see the figures for yourself Georg, the totals of what is allocated to the IOA to fund the program and when you follow it down to what we actually receive you can see there is a shortfall of around fifty billion a year." It had the amounts of salaries paid to each IOA representative, what they had in their bank accounts and also what they had in offshore accounts.

He then brought out another paper. "This is our black funding list. At the top is how much Sabrina Matthews puts into the Stargate Program; in the middle is how much we're supposed be receiving in comparison from the IOA and down the bottom set of figures, you can see something rather amazing. The mining operation income and what we actually tell the IOA we're earning through our trading with allies. You can see clearly that we are short changing them by around four hundred billion and I can tell you this here and now, I feel like a damned criminal, but I will sleep at night knowing the IOA are doing worse by this planet we call home."

At this point he'd almost lost track of all Georg had said, but his well wired mind simply backtracked. "Get a message to your Chancellor Georg, tell her that I for one am extremely grateful and so will Earth. Let her know, that like ourselves and some of our other allies, Germany's efforts will not go unrewarded. Australia and Britain has proposed to build an off world manufacturing facility for generating more fighters and 401's, another partner in that enterprise would be a good deal for all concerned, then we can address those shortfalls."
Title: Re: Stargate Command- Level 27 - Commanders Office
Post by: Robert Laurel on May 06, 2015, 06:50:37 AM
Georg looked the papers over carefully and nodded. "You have done a fine job of keeping your command going under very adverse conditions, Admiral. Now you'll pardon me for just a second." He pulled out his cellphone and dialed a number stored there just for this. "Merkel." "Angela, this is Georg. It is done." "I shall give the orders immediately." Ending the call Georg turned back to the Admiral. "In two days you will have enough medical, support and technical personnel here to make up your shortfalls in manning this headquarters. As soon as you can get transports available, we are prepared to send a reinforced mechanized battalion task force to Alpha Site to start, along with support personnel and engineers to help expand the site. We also have pilots who have been training on simulators and are ready to transition into 302's. Eventually we will expand the ground force into a reinforced brigade and the fighters into a full wing of 46. We already have the brigade commander picked out. Margit Guderian. She is the great-granddaughter of Field Marshal Heinz Guderian, the inventor of the blitzkrieg before World War Two. Now Admiral, I would like a tour of your installation so I can meet your people."

Well Sean was impressed, he knew something big was in the wind though he never envisioned anything quite on this scale. "It'll take a huge amount of logistic support to bring this altogether Georg. Steven, get on the line to Miss Matthews, try and find out from her how far away the Hermes is for commissioning." He looked back at Georg, taking in Linde as well. "The Hermes is the first of four large dedicated cargo ships, originally intended to move minerals from the Alpha site to our Free Jaffa partners; they can though be easily retrofitted for other uses....thanks by the way, you should be thanking Hank Landry though, he laid all the groundwork for this."

"So, that's what all the chatter was about over the sub space broadcasts. We saw it a day ore two ago, maybe three. I can only imagine what old Boche' must think of that." He stepped back inside for a moment, so much was happening and rapidly to he could see. "We can only hope Steven that she may be a new breed of Goa'uld....I'll take them, been on my backside too long already."

"It is Georg, and we need to gather some intel on her asap. I think we should go to the gate room first, our center of operations so to speak. We'll see a bit on our way, but I need to speak with my gate technician once we're down there and see if she can dig up something on this Allienna." He mused for a moment. "That name is Celtic in origin, something to do with flowers, we can only wonder what her mother was thinking giving her that name." He moved back to the door. "Captain Drake, it would appear we'll be in each others company for a little longer, I'm taking my guests down to the gate room."

Before he left, Sean spoke to Steven once more. "Hold the fort Steven for me, if anything happens, you know what to do."

"Got it, Sean," Steven said, sitting behind the Admiral's desk. It wasn't the first time he had stood in for his CO.

"I am most eager to see this device that has the potential to change our world," Georg said. "I have heard many good things about your people and I am looking forward very much to talking with them." He, like Linde spoke with the BBC accent that most Europeans used when they spoke English. "After we tour your facility here, I would like to arrange a meeting with your Alpha Site commanding officer. It would only be polite to inform them about the extra personnel who will be arriving shortly."

"Caldwell," Steven answered. He listened to the tragic news. "Thank you, Lieutenant." He lifted his wrist device to his lips. "Sean, I need you back in the office ASAP." He leaned forward, putting his head into his hands. Damn. I married those two kids. Bob Hughes was one of the finest men he had ever known, and Cate had had far too much tragedy in her young life.

Catching his breath for just a moment, more to compose himself, Sean stopped just outside his office door. Than as he took a deep breath, feeling the first two Tylenol making their desired affect, he walked in casually. "I'm here Steven. What have we got?" He had the sinking feeling by the sound of his friends voice, whatever it was, wasn't going to be good.
Title: Re: Stargate Command- Level 27 - Commanders Office
Post by: Robert Laurel on July 06, 2015, 12:29:02 PM
He raised his head to look at Sean. "SG9 just came back through the gate. Bonnie Heckman is hurt bad. Worst of all, we lost Bob Hughes." Who the hell is going to tell Cate? He had a moment of relief and shame that at least that detail wasn't his job.

Taking the chair opposite Steven which for now he could keep warm, Sean leaned one elbow on the desk, a position he found all too often helped with any oncoming headaches. You'd be a fool to think he'd avoid one to in this job and those words his friend uttered in one sentence sent his temples throbbing. Hopefully the Tylenol would have its desired effect. "Damn, that poor tortured girl, first her father, then she up and gets killed only to come back with much of her life evaporated...reunites with Robert and now this. Steven, no one deserves that much pain, not in a whole life time." He had a lot more to say when the phone rang.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/LtCherylBrownwell_zps14ff9b6d.jpg)

*Phone*

"Sir, your wife is calling from the FJN. I have her patched through."

"A moment please Steven." He held up a finger, he did not want Sarah to hear anything said on Cate. "Thank you Lieutenant....Sarah, at last. God I've missed you, but I know we don't have much time. What is the situation, can you make it brief? Are we committed to anything?" He feared the worst, knowing pretty much what was coming. Holding his hand over the phone he spoke again to Caldwell. "Get down there to med bay as quick as you can Steven, get as much information as possible and we'll take it from there. At this point, make sure SG9 and the medical staff say nothing to anyone concerning Robert Hughes...oh and tell Doctor Svensson to have Bronwyn Heckman isolated. I don't want anyone speaking to her unless they go through me, her or Anne MacGregor."

"Thanks Steven." Sean managed to say before the man was out the door and in doing so he swiftly got up and claimed his chair once again, it was warm. "You're needed here Sarah but in light of events I suppose you really should stay where you are and be my voice. Its possible I may need to go to DC for a few days, a week at tops so I'll have to have someone in place here in my place; naturally that falls to you." Still he could appoint Steven, but then he will be busy with the fleet at any time now, unless....he had to think. "Darling, while you're there can I just say how much I love you? I know its an awkward time I just wanted you to know. For now I'll send the Daedalus and Hammond and if our new Captain can get the Victory up and running in the next twenty four hours, he'll be there to. How much time do we have?"

Sean heaved a huge sigh, he knew only too well he couldn't give into emotion. "Regrettably Sarah I need you there as my eyes and ears, Daniel cannot relate for us on a military level. So stay with Ishta, you can liaise between her and the other forces there, I'll get Steven marshaling our fleet within an hour." He tapped his chin for a moment, they needed a meeting point, the El'dari world was closer. "They'll rendezvous with her fleet at Falt Blad. Love you to much, Sean out." Sadly he knew that the gate had to be shut down, it was going to be needed as much as the fleet would be.

After a moment of more thinking, he tapped his radio. "Steven, Sean. Time to go my friend, you'll need to recall Linde from the alpha site, and I know you're still short an XO so Linde have to fill in, promote one of your junior officers to her role. Meet me back here as soon as you can."

*****************

{Admiral Sean Davidson} NPC

There were times in your life you wish you could simply just go fishing and forget everything else. Sean was wishing that right now, just him and Sarah out on the island somewhere on the Great Barrier Reef, just the two of them. "More than you could imagine Steven, that young upstart Goa'uld Allienna called a war council a few hours ago. She had requested both enemy and friend alike to attend." He took a deep breath for the next part. "I've put two and two together so I'm confident I know what I'm talking about here; that attack on Zulu station, well it looks like those 'things' are much bigger than we thought. Right now one of the there's a fleet of them attacking anything and anyone, all those at the meeting agreed we go on the offensive now. Sarah is with the Free Jaffa, they're about to leave and we need to put every bit of weight we can behind this. I'm assuming you go straight to Ar'k'nath, but you may be re-directed en-route. I think that covers it all." He certainly hoped so.

There were two more things to do, Drake would have to have a very quick learning curve on this. "Lieutenant, call up the Victory, Captain Drake will have some immediate on the job training. Cancel his visit to the Alpha Site and for gods sake Cheryl, DEFCON three please. Let the Alpha site know."

"Here's my ideas, Sean. I'll take Saggitta, Hammond, Victory and Daedalus. Odyssey remains here on home defense and Britannia remains to cover Alpha Site. As soon as Linde gets back from Alpha Site I'll beam the crew back up to the Saggitta and get the fleet under way. Destination is Ar'k'nath, until we're told that the rendezvous has changed." He thought for a moment then his look turned sour. "Sean, next time you talk to the IOA or testify to Congress tell them that until we get a lot stronger we're basically an El'dari protectorate. A benevolent protectorate, but a protectorate. If they ever demand that we do something, we'll have to do it." He shrugged his shoulders. "Any further orders before I leave?"

"No, that was pretty much how I summed it up. Its a pity though that the Rabaul has already left for Pegasus, although I understand Sabrina could have two more escorts online very quickly if we need them."

A soft breeze blew through Sean's office the moment Steven left, a light fragrance of a fine Cuban cigar mixed with the smell of fresh hay reached his nose. Sean brushed it away as if it were just an oddity, something to annoy him.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/MACgREGORASCENDED.jpg)

"That man's in a hurry Sean." A voice, one he knew well spoke off to one side. Sean turned in that direction to see an old friend sitting on the edge of his desk.

"Jesus Will, don't you ever knock?" He spurted out in haste, once again taken by surprise. Will was making this a bit of a habit recently and that itch in the back of Sean's neck told him the man only came back with doom and gloom.

Will balled his fist, rapping on the desk, no sound was heard. "Not much point is there. I can't stay long Sean, just a message is all I can offer."

Sean creased his brow, that headache was slowly taking over the Tylenol. "Honestly Will, I don't want to hear it. The last time you came we had some other ascended creep try to take over the SGC, so whatever you have to say, I doubt there is much I can do about it. You're not supposed to help remember?" He wasn't angry with him, merely bothered that he would show up at a time like this.

"You can do what you want Sean, I cannot change destiny, nor can I tell you what lies ahead. But I will tell you this, you are going to need a lot more than that fleet you and your allies are sending. You'll need boots on the ground and a lot of them. That Felger of yours, he found something a short while ago. If you want to win this war, you'll need Cate and SG4 to activate that device and recruit some new blood and by blood I mean that which is completely immune to that you face."

Even as he spoke, Will began to fade, giving Sean no chance of reply. But he knew this, the man was never wrong. He tapped his radio. "Felger, Troy. Whatever device or artifact you found, bring it up here now please. Meet me in the Briefing room."

Carefully removing the necklace and placing it in a transport container, Troy carefully carried it out of the bunker and towards the Commander's office. As he entered the main part of the base he heard the alert indicating a change in DEFCON status. The reason was unknown at the moment, but thankfully he was going to see the man who likely ordered the increase in the first place.

With Felger right behind him, the medic knocked on the door to the Commander's office.

"I've really got to focus more on fitness don't I?" Jay said candidly when he finally caught up to William. He had a question on his mind, how did the Admiral know they found something? The guy must have eyes everywhere.

{Admiral Sean Davidson} NPC

"Sit down both of you please." He felt he owed them some kind of explanation, but nothing he could say of the past few minutes would make any sense, so Sean kept strictly to the facts. "Information has come to me that the artifact or relic if you like you are carrying is quite possibly an ancient type of remote dialing device. Whether it is or not we will soon find out. In the mean time, Lieutenant I want you to get your backside to the Alpha site pronto and make yourself known to SG4 wherever they might be. You can tell Lieutenant Colonel Ovcharenko I'm placing you and Doctor Cassandra Thomas on her team effective immediately.  If she whinges about her team being all female, tell he you can wear a dress anytime. Once you've done that, I want SG4 here as soon as possible." He then addressed Jay. "Get Sam Carter on the phone Doctor Felger immediately, I want her to look at that thing before we use it."

Well, maybe he was right, Ancient artifacts weren't exactly his line of work. "Yes sir, I hope it won't be inconvenient for her however, given her....you know."

"She'll be fine. Now get moving the both of you. Dismissed."

Jay was rarely put off by the military bravado unless it was O'Neill. The it was simply awe. "Er...yessir. I'll call her immediately."

Sarah paced in front of Sean's desk.  She was worried about her friends that were still up there fighting.  She understood why she couldn't be there, but it was driving her crazy to not know what was going on.  "Do you think they'll survive?" she asked, looking at her husband.

"I damned well hope so Sarah." Sean said a little hotly as he joined his wife in the pacing. But that wasn't all, Sam Carter had arrived earlier in the day to research the pendant Felger had found, with that she had some disturbing news. "SG4 should be back from the Alpha Site any moment now, Sam will join us so we best go see what she had to say." He put his arm around her giving Sarah a gentle squeeze. "Boy or girl do you think?" His words were more mellowed now, gentler, the normal Sean.

Sarah knew how he felt.  She was worried sick for her friends.  She leaned back against Sean though as he wrapped his arms around her.  thankfully they were alone for the moment being and she needed the support of her husband.  "I'm thinking little girl," she answered, laying her hand against him.  She didn't know for sure, but at least it was a happier topic to think about.

 Stopping by the briefing room, Cheryl turned on the little expresso machine. Like so many mechanical or electrical things it confounded her for quite a few weeks until some kind airman spent a whole two hours with her explaining slowly how it works, not leaving until she had made ten cups on her own. Now an expert she prepared Sean's favorite, it was a strong Kenyan brew, black, one sugar. Carrying that on a tray with his three cookies (that was all Sarah allowed him) she picked up today's papers off the table along the way. One each from New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, London and Sydney. Tapping lightly with one hand, the papers under her arm she went in. "Here you go sir, hot and strong as you like it. Oh and there was no delivery today for the New Asia Times I'm sorry." She placed the tray down, followed by the neat pile of tabloids.

 "You're welcome Sir." She sighed deeply, now she had to do what she'd been putting off so long, making that call to her father. "I'll be doing just that, in between um...other things if you know what I mean." Sean and Sarah both knew how much of a pain in the mitka Major General Frank Brownwell was, thinking his little girl had to be guided and watched over in everything she did. He wasn't even aware or chose to ignore that fact she was the controlling officer over the biggest defence budget in the US. "I'll see you in twelve hours Admiral. Night." The young woman toddled off then, her eyes half open as she headed for the nearest elevator.

It was a strange but valid question. Anne thought about it for all of sixty seconds. "Duty Linda. Ask yourself why Sabrina Matthews does what she does. Put aside the fact of what she is for a moment and pretend she is simply an absurdly wealthy woman. Yet she has pledged herself to Earth and our cause, with her often putting her own neck on the chopping block so to speak for our sake. I think that might be the answer." To be sure Anne herself could walk away from this completely, spend her remaining years as a consultant surgeon making money hand over fist. Yet here she was, the wrong side of sixty still doing her bit.
Title: Re: Stargate Command- Level 27 - Commanders Office
Post by: Robert Laurel on March 05, 2017, 01:45:25 PM
Linda nodded. "It's just that you don't see that sense of duty in today's elite. I'm part of the House of Fraser and the Earls of Lovat. So I had a privileged childhood. Many people expected that I would live a life of leisure. But I choose to fly bombers instead. Many of my schoolmates are choose to waste their lives, not making use of talents that could have been put to good use."

She then changed the subject. "What do you think of this new treaty? We will have Kelt officers arriving soon to serve on our ships and to man positions in the watch center. They will be helping Sabrina Matthews construct our new Moon base. I just got word earlier today that they will be sending a medical mission here in the next day or so to bring us up to speed on their medical techniques. Which include the growing of new limbs to replace lost ones. I can think of a few people I know who could benefit from that."

Anne wore a smallish smile on her face, she was quite sure that Linda would be more than familiar with the Windsor family. "Your choice Linda is no different to young Harry's and I'm positive having met him not too long ago that given his own path to follow he would prefer to stay with the Army rather than the inevitable Royal duties he'll have to do eventually. As I said before, there are some of us who see duty first."

With the change of subject Anne was out of the loop. She hadn't bothered to catch up all that much with the treaty business as it was of no concern of hers really. So long as it didn't interfere with her job, the powers that be could do whatever they wish. "Its all very good to hear of it I suppose. My preference is and has always been for Earth to stand on her own two feet without all these 'gifts'. Its been my experience over time that nothing is ever for free. I sincerely hope it doesn't come back to bite us on the you know where."
Title: Re: Stargate Command- Level 27 - Commanders Office
Post by: Robert Laurel on March 07, 2017, 05:16:21 PM
Linda chuckled along with Anne at the thought of Prince Harry. "He's a fine young man, but there have been times when I would have liked to give the young scapegrace a severe talking to. I know Kate and Wills. They are a lovely couple. I know the PM has had them briefed in on the Stargate Program, along with his father and Her Majesty. He feels that their younger minds will be valuable later." She chuckled to herself again. "Did you know that the Palace once tried to match up the Countess and Harry? She wound up knocking him on his bum after he tried to 'cop a feel', as the saying goes. His father and grandfather had no sympathy for him."

She changed the subject. "I was there when the treaty was negotiated and I've read it all, with the annotations made by our legal team. We don't have much of a choice, I'm afraid. We are far behind on the power curve and this is the best hope we have of catching up. According to our scientists what the Kelts are offering us we would have had in ten or so years anyway, so they are just keeping us from going down blind alleys. They need strong allies. Somebody unknown has been mounting a terror campaign against them. A year or so ago somebody smuggled an atomic bomb onto one of their major bases and detonated it."

"Then there is this thing about psychic talents. They claim that everyone can do a little, such as do things to preserve food, but that really major talents, such as Cate and Linde have, require major training. Linde is there now, Cate will have to come later. And the High Queen insisted very strongly that Cate should be trained in order to get her powers under control."

She sighed. "Plus I just got notice this morning that the Kelts intend to invoke the right of pursuit under interstellar law, which applies everywhere, according to them, and go after terrorist leaders and sites here on Earth. They have sent files linking some of the major terrorist groups here on Earth to off-world elements, which gives them the right to go after them here. They also have classified Iran as a terrorist state, which makes them fair game."

 "You never met my late husband did you?" Anne asked seemingly changing the subject. It was relevant though. "He served on attachment for a brief period with Harry's unit advising the 'royal' on what he might expect to find when he was eventually to be sent to Afghanistan. William at that time was only two weeks away from joining the Stargate program himself, he had been briefed prior that 'they' were already in the loop." They in this instance meaning the Windsors. "I recall my husband saying some time after that the younger Royal hinted at having a look at what we do here, it was rejected because of the potential influence it could have on certain governments perceiving it as favoritism, I wholly agree. I think Harry should think himself lucky that Linde did bounce him back then." That was the end of her light hearted moment.

Back to the primary subject it was then. "I'm a skeptic Linda, I have always been and always will be. I wasn't around when the SGC encountered the Aschen, but I've been briefed a thousand times over about how close we came to being wiped out. I along with many others feel that these miraculous we might receive from other races are Trojan horses. No matter how good it looks on paper, in this case an alliance agreement; we should proceed with extreme caution and as the Stargate Program Surgeon General, I'll be saying thanks but no thanks. We'll advance in our own time." She leaned back in the chair, doing her best impression of being relaxed. "I'm not saying we'll refuse hints at research and the direction we take, I'm merely saying we're not about to compromise our own vast history of doing things we feel more comfortable with as Doctors and Surgeons." Then she sat back up straight. "Who in their right mind would agree to that? We could have world war three on our hands over night if we let one go unchecked." Frankly she was shocked, the look on her face said as much.

Linda wasn't surprised by the shock on Anne's face. She had had a similar look just a few hours ago. "I will be beaming to Australia in a hour to talk with their Ambassador and try to persuade them out of this lunacy. But like I've said, they take a very hard line on terrorism. They have passed very detailed files to our intelligence people, so I expect some action on that front. Plus they've been talking very intensely with the Israeli Mossad."

"As for the other, I'm a hard-headed, practical Scot. But we also have a tradition of being 'fey' in the family, so I'm much less skeptical than most. I had an old Highland aunt who they said had the 'second sight'. And damned if she wasn't right more times than she wasn't."

"As for the medical stuff, just listen and then make your own choices. Their own Ambassador is a trained physician, so she'll be the one to come to talk to you when time permits."

"The only thing about terrorism that affects me Linda, or did so in the past, was when some insane jihadist let off a roadside bomb, killing or maiming some of our boys and girls for simply doing their job." The last thing that was in Anne's CV, was having any kind of political viewpoint. When voting came around, she always went to the polls, folded the ballot paper up placing it in the box unfilled. But she drew the line when it came to outside influences in that very subject, like years ago when the US tried to influence the outcome of an Australian election. It was none of their beeswax. "Well I hope you can convince them Linda. Giving us a hand with intel is one thing, actual physical interference is another. So where did they manage to stick this Kelt Embassy anyway? I know you said Australia, but its a pretty big damned place."

"It's at the Land Warfare Centre, in Canungra, South East Queensland," Linda answered. "At the old Lantean base under Mount Tambourine. The staff has settled in and some of them are even living on the economy and driving in." There was an urgent beep on Linda's cellphone and she consulted it quickly. "The Kelt ambassador is suggesting moving the meeting here. It will give you a chance to meet her. She's the Queen's sister." She quickly texted her acceptance of the change.

That bit of news at the least brought a cheery response from Anne; they were placed right in her backyard so to speak. "Sunny Queensland eh? Sand and Surf with all the accoutrements that go with it? It reminds me fondly of the holidays spent there with my parents, I don't think a better place on Earth could have been found for them. Of course I am a little biased there aren't I?" Then the other part of Linda's discussion sank in. "An Ancient base in Australia? I find that fascinating really. Before Will was taken from us, he hypothesized that one such facility may exist given the proximity to Antarctica. When did they find it?"

She sat up straight then, realizing the final sentence was in the hear and now. "Coming here? Do I need to change I wonder." She was in her blues, of course she had no need to.

"They found it five years ago, and one of the officers who was examining it had been part of the SGC and he contacted the PM and the government had it sealed," Ann answered. "The Kelts have bought a couple of housing developments and are converting them to their specifications. As for your blues, the Ambassador is a trained medical doctor, so I hardly think she'll take offense." Her cellphone rang and she answered, listening for a minute. "She's ready to beam down. I"ll introduce you."

<<Ríoghnach Aoibhell, Princess of the Name, Ambassador to Terra, NPC>>

Ríoghnach beamed down from Gall-Ghàidhealaibh (Galloway), the Kelt battlewagon currently on call for transport purposes. She was dressed in a plain blue gúna (dress), with the only mark of her royal rank a thin circlet of maintenance on her long red hair. She wore no other jewelry. In her right hand she carried was what clearly a doctor's bag. She smiled at Linda. "Commodore, very nice to see you again. And this is one of your senior medical personnel, perhaps?"

Linda introduced the two to each other. "Princess, this is Commodore Anne MacGregor, Surgeon General for Stargate Command. Anne, this is Princess Ríoghnach, Kelt Anbassador to Earth." Ríoghnach nodded her head in greeting and extended her hand, Earth style. "Very good to meet you, Commodore."

The woman was a Scot if ever she had seen one in the flesh, being one herself by way of her father as well as having visited that sweet ancestral home, Anne could pick a Scots woman or man out in any crowd. They had an air about them, a certain flush to their cheeks as was seen more often on her daughter than not. Right there and then Anne felt a tinge of sadness realizing that these people had left Earth a few thousand years ago and while claiming Welsh heritage, back in that time they were all one people; Irish, Welsh, Scots and Britons with the northern Picts thrown in for good measure.

She stood a little nervously taking the other woman's hand with a firm, warm grasp. "It is indeed a pleasure to meet you at last your Highness, I am honored truly." She looked hard at her, typically thinking the first thing that came into her mind. "I'd like to take a DNA sample from you lass." It would be an exciting moment if ancestors of these people could be found on Earth.

Ríoghnach smiled broadly. "The honor is mine, Commodore. Please, the both of you, just call me Ríoghnach or even Rí. We Kelts prefer informality whenever we can get away with it." She took off her circlet and placed it on a nearby table. "The only reason I wore this is to please my chief of protocol, who is a stuffy old gasbag." She sat down in a nearby chair. "Your country, Commodore, is quite charming. We love it already. We have bought a development with single-family homes and one with a large apartment building and are settling in. We have brought in a couple of small fusion plants so we will have more than enough power for our immediate needs. We won't do any more for now because we want to blend in as much as possible. We've given it out that we're a start-up from Ireland and people seem to have taken us at our word. Entrance into the area is very strictly controlled by the Australian government but we hope to relax that soon as we are more settled in. Our druids and ban-draoi have been busy planting fruit orchards and herb and vegetable gardens. Some of our people have even bought barbecues for their backyards! I was visiting a local market and listened to one of your countrymen brag for an hour how he was descended from horse thieves and pickpockets!"

Linda laughed. "You should read Such a Parcel of Rogues in a Nation by Robbie Burns. That title sums up Scots to a T. And I say that as a full-blooded Scot. I understand that Her Majesty did some tourism before she left?"

"Aye, we did," Ríoghnach replied. "The first place we went, Aeron and Gwydion and myself, was the site of the old hill fort of Craig Liat, which overlooks the Shannon about two miles Killaloe in Munster, which is the place from which the clan comes from. It has been looked after for centuries now by a family of farmers from the area. There is now a well tended picnic area atop of the hill with picnic tables and chairs and an awning for inclement weather. It has a magnificent view of the river valley. Helwen Drummond went to her family seat at Stobhall Castle in Perthshire. The Earl of Perth intends to sell it, we are planning on purchasing it to preserve it. Emer and Morwen Douglas went to visit the ruins of Douglas Castle in South Lanarkshire in southwest Scotland. The castle and subsequent manor house fell into such disrepair that they were demolished in 1938 and only a single tower remains. After that we all went to Harlech Castle, which is Gwydion's family comes from. He is a direct descendant of Owain Glyndŵr. After that it was Caernarfon Castle where we met the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Then Aeron and Gwydion had a private meeting at Sandringham House with the Queen and the Prince Consort. So we had a busy time."

"Ri it is then, as Linda will be the first to tell you, you'd be hard pressed to find someone more informal than I. I'm not overly fond of neither military or regal protocol, frankly I don't have much time for it." Though she was a generation or two from being a pure Scot, Anne still had that same tenacity for going against the grain. In her time with the Stargate program she had rubbed more than one set of shoulders the wrong way, most of those Americans, some British and some even of her own Australians. Anne figured she had two things going for her on that score, one she was old enough to do almost anything she wished to do in regards as to how she addressed people and two, she was one of the highest ranking medical officers bar only a very small handful, on the planet. As the old saying goes, the Doctor is always right.

"Quite an itinerary you had before you feet even touched the ground. I'm one of those who do a lot of planning, but never get around to it. I promised my husband before he passed away that we'd see his ancestral home at Glenlochy, but sadly we never got around to it. Even my own relatives around Lanarkshire I've never seen." But of course they were rambling now, the subject was having the Kelts in her backyard, she was curious as to how they were able get around many things, her home countries extremely tight immigration laws. "I'm going to assume at this point you had help from Stargate command getting around all the paperwork. Australia is renown for red tape." Something she could attest to, even going back home after long spells in the US she had to jump through hoops.

"We have been given Irish passports," Ríoghnach replied. "Then the SGC contacted your Prime Minister and got his permission to enter the country. After we landed near Brisbane we were escorted through your border customs with all the required forms already filled in and given to us to sign. And that was that."

She changed the subject. "Now, to get to the purpose of this meeting. Her Majesty has very firmly sat on the hardliners in the Royal Council. There will be no more talk of preemptive raids or terrorist states. Our efforts will be to gather intelligence and pass it along for action. We will provide back up if requested. We would like to find some way to neutralize the Iranian Parchin nuclear facility. We are also closely watching North Korea. We will shoot down any nuclear armed missiles they may launch and afterwards we will take out the launch sites with kinetic strikes."

It wasn't surprising really to Anne as she knew it had been done before not so long ago. The woman now known as Sabrina Matthews was once the former Goa'uld Athena, now apparently a Tok'ra (Anne still wasn't sure how that worked, although Cate did give her some long winded sciencey explanation for it) had been granted full British citizenship even to the point as Anne was aware she had been given a history as being born on Earth to some very wealthy family. It was truly amazing how deceitful humans could be; she didn't approve of it for any reason. Still ever graceful she never showed it. "Makes sense, although you're lucky you came at this time, a year earlier with the previous Government prior to the elections I'm sure they would have been looking for another country to settle you in."

Just as she was about to speak on the next topic, her phone rang. "Excuse me a moment please." Anne said to both of them. She spoke at length for a least a minute or two, then listened even long. "I understand Kim and yes please do." She slipped the phone back into her pocket a saddened look on her face. "Linda that was our Chief Nursing officer Kimberly Sutton, her little girl Sophia has had a bad fall from her pony. She asked if she could bring her here rather than Colorado Springs General. Given who she is and the possible security implications at this time I said yes. So, it might be a good opportunity for both of you to see how our medical facilities shape up around here. Kim will be here in around ten minutes, I'll have to go and see what Nurses I can round up." She stood at that point, then a thought struck her, all this talk would have been more valued on someone like Jack or even Steven. But still she had a good ear in any case.

"Oh dear," Linda said. "I hope she isn't too badly injured. And yes, I would like to see you in your lair. I've been sadly amiss in venturing to other places here." She stood.

"I too would like to see your medical facilities," Ríoghnach said. She stood and automatically reached for her medical bag. "Please let me know if I can assist. Our medical training includes medical care without our devices, as you never know when you may crash on a planet somewhere and not have access to them. I have sewn up wounds before."

"From what Kim said rather hurriedly over the phone it sounds as if Sophie has broken her arm. Its hard to decipher the shrieking of a hysterical mother but at least I understand where she is coming from." Anne started walking while she was talking. "Its a case of been there done that for me, several times in fact. For Cate more so than Ben strangely enough. If it wasn't horse riding, it was skateboarding or some other insane activity she was engaged in all before puberty. Thank God she managed to settle down a wee bit after that." Only just, there were still more than enough hair raising moments Will and Anne had to contend with their daughter and to Anne it was an ongoing thing even to this day, never knowing what next was going to come at her via her daughter.

 "Up to level twenty one, we'll be there in less than five minutes via the elevator." Her short statue not withstanding, Anne was quite quick on her feet as she all but ran down the hallway.

Jon shook McRaven's hand, then followed him up to the office.

He hadn't recognized the new young pups with SG-1 patches on their sleeves, but of course SG-1 would have passed on to new command. He was never going to wear that designation again, and he'd made his peace with that.

He paused in the doorway of McRaven's office. He'd sat in the commander's chair before, usually during on-base training exercises. He knew the Old Guy had sat in that chair for real, once he'd gotten his stars, before he'd been booted up the ladder to the Pentagon.

He waited for McRaven to get settled, address him. McRaven knew who he was. How many people did? Walter was still running the gate. Did Walter know who he was? The last time Walter had seen him, he'd looked fifteen.

"Don't mean to inconvenience you, sir. I'll get out of your hair as soon as possible."

McRaven shut the door behind them, and took note that boxes with his name on them were already here. It wouldn't have surprised him if all of his things had been beamed from his office at MacDill to here, but for the moment, nothing was set up. He'd have to deal with that later.

"It's not that, Lieutenant. We just have a lot happening all at once, my arrival included." Ian said before sitting down behind the desk, giving the chair a try. Not bad, but he was likely going to have to break it in. "At ease, take a seat."

McRaven took a moment to collect his words before speaking, as this was quite an unusual situation but O'Neill had brought him up on the broadest of terms of it.

"I can say, without a doubt, that you are the most unusual case I've had dropped in my lap. So. While I obviously am in need of someone with your expertise, I also have to respect the layers of confidentiality and discretion here. How we want to play that, well, that'll be up to you. But we don't need to worry about that quite yet, you can chew on that one for a minute and decide later." Ian said before pausing for a moment and then resuming, "However, you have been assigned to SG-9, who have just returned from a lengthy expedition off-world, so they're being stood down for leave. You're free to use that time to get to know the facility and your new teammates, as well as get yourself fully situated. I just need to let Colonel Reynolds know, but I intend to inform him that he's getting a bright young Marine from MARSOC, and given how recently the Marines actually got off their backsides and joined the 21st Century with JSOC, that'll suffice as resume enough for me to put you on a team." Ian hadn't been too involved with that effort, the Marines were too full of pride to let a SEAL tell them what to do, but he knew the story backwards and forwards.

"So. If that all sounds like a plan to you, I'll hand you off to Reynolds tomorrow around lunch and that'll be that. Past that, if you have any questions for me, fire away. Otherwise, I need you to report to Medical to get your shots and subdermal stuff. Something I have to do later when I actually have a moment." The SEAL Admiral chuckled at that.

Jon sat at McRaven's invitation, because he didn't want to start off on the wrong foot with the man who was his CO. He'd respected George, and he'd heard good things about Hank, and if the Old Guy trusted McRaven, well, Jon would trust him too. For now.

"If you don't mind, sir, I'd like as few people as possible to know who I was before I encountered an Asgard Xerox malfunction. Easier for everyone else all around. No confusion about ranks or assignments. Just let people take me at face value. If that suffices, I'm willing to go get lo-jacked and otherwise poked and prodded for the good of the nation, planet, and galaxy."

"Very well. I had a feeling that was what you were going to say, but I've found it better to just ask what people want rather than assuming, at least in these kinds of situations." Ian said, "That being said, if the cat gets out of the bag, well, that'll be something you're going to have to deal with."

"Alright, then. You'll be assigned to SG-9 tomorrow around lunch, go ahead and report to Medical and get your shots and such. And if you could let them know that I'll be there as soon as I get more than five minutes to myself, I would greatly appreciate it." Ian said, standing up, "Welcome aboard, Marine. If current events are to be believed, it's going to be a hell of a ride for all of us."

With the installation of a 42" screen and accompanying camera to function as the "viewscreen", as some rather sci-fi pop culture keen techs called it, Ian was still able to use the computer in the room to pull up reference materials. In this case, as he waited, he entered his login credentials and pulled up the relevant notes regarding Atlantis' current situation. And what a situation it was, and the mention of his last pet project being involved piqued his interest. However, there would be time for that later, and he wanted both Jack and Hank present when he went over those details. Another time...

Richard Woolsey and McRaven never had really interacted, as his association with the Program began well after Woolsey had gone off to assume command from Colonel Carter of Atlantis. This, of course, meant that he only knew of the man by reputation, and it was complicated. The truest definition of an IOA "suit", and yet he had found his own way of tackling unorthodox situations with a brand of non-IOA unorthodox solutions.

After a quick glance of his notes, he was at least mostly up to speed, but it looked like that was a very quickly developing situation.

"Mister Woolsey, Admiral Ian McRaven. Sorry about the change all of the sudden, but if it makes you feel any better, I was caught just as off guard. My understanding is that you have a rather important Search and Rescue operation underway with the UNS Dreadnought, as well as what I see here being a pretty spectacular near-miss with the rebellious elements of the Genii. So, might as well cut straight to it, what's the current update on the situation?" Ian said.

We do have some rather alarming news though for you, the Vanir are active again and rather aggressively I might add. They're attacking human settlements wherever they find them, virtually razing them or at least that's what we've learned. You will find data on that race in your archive files listed under #990-567, I know that by rote, as its my own report. Other than that, those Genii it appears were clones manufactured by the Vanir.

Well, if that wasn't the obvious statement of the day...

"I've been told that before in my career. We'll let history judge how well I've done." Ian said, before letting Woolsey continue.

"Yeah, the Vanir, the so-called Lost Tribe. I'm aware. That's been one of the bogeymen in the closet right up there with Anubis or the Ori coming back. Well, that's not welcome news, considering that according to General Caldwell, we've also got the Borg making another play. They shot up some of our ships in our system and they're making a run at Lucia now. Plus the Alpha Site's knee deep in a war of their own, so if it's any consolation, you're not the only one. I'll pass your request along to Fleet Command, hopefully they can get a move on but best I can do right now is make sure they're on time." Ian explained. Well, now he would really have the chance to see if the Mako project was going to work, they'd be going after the biggest and baddest threat in Pegasus.

"Is there anything else I can do for you? Otherwise, I guess I need to get General Landry on the phone and try to make sense of all of this chaos." Ian concluded.

 "It would appear Admiral you're in no better position than when I last communicated with Admiral Davidson some months ago, I believe back then it was another race trying to do their best to destroy everything. It never stops does it?"

"No not at this time, although I don't know if you've been informed or not, but you do have a scheduled inspection tour here within the next day or so."

 "Admiral, its Lieutenant Brownwell sir. The NID has taken into custody two people, a man and a boy who had been making overtures towards exposing the Stargate program. The man is a reporter from the Colorado Sun, the boy is 16 sir and suffers from Motor Neurone Disease. I know it sounds bizarre sir but apparently they had a lot of very sensitive data sir."  She stopped to let him take that on board. "On top of that, the Alpha site has requested we have Agent Barrett go to them so that he can conduct the questioning of the Forerunner Empress sir."

"No, it doesn't. But that's why they pay us the big bucks; solve the problems no one else wants to." Ian chuckled at that, since he wasn't exactly speaking in literal terms with "big bucks". But one didn't stay in these jobs for the money, now did they? "Yeah, and they're not quite ready for some things I have to bring up. Such is life, I would say. Thank you for your time, Mister Woolsey. McRaven out."

Before he had the chance to say anything to Sarah, Cheryl chimed in. Well, now that put a scowl on the old man's face...

"Tell Agent Barrett to proceed to the Alpha Site ricky tick. And then tell the NID I want the reporter in the brig and the kid taken to Medical. I'll deal with the former in a minute." Ian replied.

"Colonel, go let Major Sutton know about the boy, make sure he's kept under watch and see what he knows. As for the reporter, I'll talk to him first. If he even mentions my name before I walk in there, I'm putting this base on lockdown and everyone gets to spend quality time with the IOA and NID. He's likely got a game he's playing at, and I intend to find out what it is." He opened a drawer and pulled out an empty folder with the usual USAF and TOP SECRET stamps all over it, before then opening the bottom of the printer and pulling out a stack of blank paper and tucking it into the folder. "Let's see how good he's at playing poker."

Sarah ,listened to everything quietly.   It certainly seemed like there was a tin of stuff going on at once.  She jumped to attention when Ian spoke to her.   "Of course,  sir."

Sarah gave a quick salute before heading down to the med bay.

Captain Harley Lawler - USMC
1st Lieutenant John Spencer - USMC
1st Lieutenant Alexander Ramirez - USAF
Lieutenant JG Jane Iles - USN
Gunnery Sergeant Bradley Cooper - USMC
Staff Sergeant Tony Espisito - USMC
HM Corpsman 2nd Class Timmothy O’Brian - USN

The team made their way up from the control room to the hallway outside the commanders office, a position they had become use to taking as often there was somebody in the briefing room. They took a moment to make sure their uniforms were all sorted, they might as well considering they had been given clean Desert MARPAT fatigues before leaving. They all looked pretty smart as Harley fixed her hair as did Tony who gave his slightly longer hair a quick brush through with his hand before tugging his 8 point cover back on. Harley then knocked on the door and stepped round to stand in the door way, waiting to be addressed, not wanting to interupt. Tony though glanced in when he got a chance and frowned seeing a new person in the commanders seat. He stepped back and looked up to Brad.
"Dude, Vice Admiral McRaven is in the big chair now?" Brad frowned. Though didnt look.
"You mean like SOCOM McRaven?" He asked Tony nodded.
"Yeah Dude. What happened to the British woman?"
"I know as much as you Tony, now shut up." Said Brad as he listened out for McRaven's acknowledgement of Harley, a few of them had worked under the SOCOM banner at some point. So they at least new of him.

  "Yes sir, I'll tell him as soon as he arrives and sir, I can see on my CCTV monitor the Agents car has pulled into the car park. I'll send two SF's down to meet them now."

As Ian headed for the door with Sarah, a knock came and he opened it to find a group of Marines waiting outside. The timing wasn't exactly great, but Ian stopped and sized up their leader. Then the light clicked.

"Captain Lawler. I'm afraid you've caught me at a particularly bad time, and for that I apologize. However, I need you to report to Colonel Sanderson, it seems the IOA has a bit of a problem with your Marines doing their jobs without the IOA's approval. Personally, I'm failing to see the problem, and I want you to know I intend to speak to General Landry about it." McRaven said, "Once he's chewed your ear off, your Marines are free to stand down, but I want After Action Reports regarding your ops at the Alpha Site on my desk by noon tomorrow. Carry on, Captain."

Ian gave them all a nod and then made his way out for the brig (there was no way he was calling it anything else) with a purpose.

Harley nodded as the Admiral left. Turning to her team she sighed. "Okay, Jane, Brian, John, Alex and Tony you guys are good to go. Me and Brad will get to the bottom of this." Those she dismissed nodded and quickly left leaving Her and Brad to go find the colonel.
