<401-32>

"Not now Captain!" Al shouted over the roar of the engines. It was a wonder the crews of the 401, or at least their passengers weren't terminally deaf- that was Al's opinion, so he held on tight as the launch took place, his knuckles under the brown leather gloves probably drained of all blood by the time the ship reached exit velocity, then the acceleration to the one kilometer threshold, that was always a doozy as Jack would say.

When at last the 401 settled before making her banking turn Al felt the dog shake slowly dissipate, for that was exactly what it was, a dog shaking its victim within clenched jaws. Able to speak at last "Pleasure to have you with us Captain, so your mission then, have you worked out with MacGregor a suitable alias for yourself and a reason for you to be there back in 1944? When you've got that in your head I can assign something for you."

"Don't get too comfortable folks, we're not done yet with the carnival ride, look at the screen up front." At the cockpit end to the right side of the door leading into that area was a 36" LCD, it was showing where they were going in all its ugly glory, the Black Hole. A swirling mass of horror if the geek's calculations were off by even a hair.

Jon let himself exhale and relax, unclench once the worst of the G's were past. He glanced over his shoulder, raised his hands in a gesture of surrender - or like a kid riding his bicycle with no hands for the first time. To Daniel he said,

"Thanks, Doc, but the real magic is by Commander MacGregor - or should I say Obsterleutnant Von Ritter?"

<Black Hole>
<401-32>


 Cate didn't say a word as she was far too busy watching her readouts, a scale of gravity pull coming from the 'Devil's Gate' as she called it. Of course Sam argued that such a magnificent thing could never be created by Satan, Cate's argument was that well if you stepped through it, it'd be hell all over. Point conceded.

 Thirty two swung around smoothly at the one K mark, Cate already had shifted control from Jon and Bobbie to her station, with the ship flying back past the Oddy swiftly. For them, any who might be watching at a window, all they'd see was a dark blur go by.

 At three kilometers from the Black Hole, the ship angled downwards at a specific inclination computed back at the SGC; at now zero point eight eight exactly of light speed she went into a wide turn skimming the event horizon by just shy of one point two kilometers. Once, twice they flew in a circle building momentum and the ship was shaking like no one could have predicted. Cate wanted to look and see if everyone was alright, but it was all she could do to watch the vibrating screen in front of her...then she shouted over her coms set. "Hold onto whatever you can!" A flicker of light, the wormhole opened six hundred meters in front of them and thirty two was gone.
