Something lurks beneath the ancient sands of Egypt.
It is the stuff of Jaffa nightmares, its name a whisper in the dark.
And it is stirring
When disaster strikes an Egyptian dig, SG1 are brought
in to investigate. But nothing can prepare them for what they find
among the ruins. Walking in the dust of a thousand deaths, they
discover a creature of unimaginable evil - a creature the insane
Goa'uld Neheb-Kau wants to use as a terrible weapon.
With Teal'c and Major Carter in the hands of
the enemy, Colonel O'Neill and Daniel Jackson recruit Master Bra'tac
to help track the creature across the galaxy in a desperate bid
to destroy it before it turns their friends - and the whole galaxy
- to dust
"DEATH GLIDER." It was close enough now
to be unmistakable; a glossy crescent howling down out of the sky
towards him. As soon as he had spoken the machine unleashed its
energies a second time; O'Neill saw gouts of fire spitting from
its cannons. He dived for cover, throwing himself behind a boulder.
There was a whiplash impact as a shot hit the rock, an earsplitting
din of frozen stone superheating and exploding away in lethal shards,
and bolts of fire were ripping past as the glider fired over and
over into the plateau. O'Neill felt the punch of each blast through
his boots, through his bleeding hands as he crouched.
A shadow crossed him, viciously quick, as the glider
hammered through the air over his head, and he heard the electric
whoop of a staff weapon as Teal'c sent darts of energy lashing up
into the sky. A shot connected, spattered uselessly off a wing.
The glider flew level for a second or two, then rose into a smooth,
almost vertical climb, accelerated into a blur. In a heartbeat it
was lost to the clouds.
"Damn," muttered O'Neill, getting up. He
was starting to hurt all over. "That turned up fast."
Teal'c had been down on one knee, trying to get a
better aim at the fighter. He rose, slowly, eyes on the churning
whorl of cloud the machine had left in its wake. "If the glider
arrived in response to the distress beacon, it must have already
been close to this world. It is likely that a mothership is in this
system, searching for the Tel'tak."
"And now they've found it. Thanks to us."
