Stargate: Crusade
« on: September 10, 2011, 12:04:50 PM »
FADE IN:

INT. STARGATE COMMAND – CONTROL ROOM
In the room are Gen. Landry and Chief Master Sergeant Walter Harriman.
   
Landry
Dial it up Walter.
Harriman
Yes, sir.

INT. STARGATE COMMAND – GATE ROOM
The Stargate finishes dialing and the wormhole ka-wooshes.

CUT TO:

INT. ATLANTIS – GATE ROOM
Atlantis’ Gate ka-wooshes.

CUT TO:

INT. ROOM
It is a large, empty room in some sort of temple.  At one end of the room is a Stargate of the type seen on planets in “SGU”.  Suddenly the chevrons light up and the Gate starts spinning.  After a beat it locks into position and the wormhole ka-wooshes.  After the puddle settles six SG Team members wearing thick jackets step through and spread out around the room.  Only one of the team members is a woman.  One of them, a young man, turns and faces the gate.

Male SG-Team Member 1
So that’s what the Andromeda Gates look like.

In an alternate “Stargate” reality, a new adventure begins.

CUT TO:

EXT. PLANET ATMOSPHERE
The Prometheus and four unfamiliar angular ships pass through a thick, orange planetary atmosphere.  In front of them we see some sort of energy field with a massive city beneath it.  Several of the buildings have spires that stick out through the field.

CUT TO:

INT. UNDERWATER CAVE
Three people in Ancient space suits move through a water filled cave with hundreds of gigantic white crystals all over the place.

CUT TO:

INT. GOA’ULD BASE – CORRIDOR
Eight SG personnel walk down the corridor of the Goa’uld base.  When they come to a junction they stop.  One of them, the young man from the beginning of the trailer moves to the front of the group and pulls a device out of his backpack; it is a Cornershot, a gadget that allows the user to aim around corners without exposing themselves.  He attaches his M9 to the front of the device and uses it to look around the corner.  The camera focuses on the monitor and we see that it is clear.  He signals that it way is clear and the group begins to head out, but a pair of Kull warriors emerges from the corner at the far end of the corridor.  The Kulls begin firing as the group takes cover.

CUT TO:

EXT. HYPERSPACE
Three of Goa’uld ships fly through hyperspace.  Two of them are regular Ha’taks but the one in the center is much larger but similar in design.  The most significant difference is that its pyramid has a hexagonal base.

CUT TO:

INT. LARGE CAVERN
The female SG team member from the beginning of the trailer is working at an Ancient control table similar to those we’ve seen several times on “SG-1”.  Gunshots echo in the room.

Male SG Officer 2 (Off Screen)
(Russian accent, yelling over gunfire)
How’s it going Reid?
Reid (Female SG Team Member)
(sarcastic)
It’d be easier to think without all the noise!

CUT TO:

INT. ORI MOTHERSHIP – LARGE ROOM
The room appears to be for prostration.  In the center is Adria next to her is the One-eyed Prior and knelling before them is another woman wearing a kimono.  It is the Goa’uld System Lord Amaterasu.

Adria
You will bow in prostration before the Ori?
Amaterasu
Yes.
Adria
Good.  There may be hope for you yet.

CUT TO:

EXT. SPACE
Destiny flies through normal space with a Seed Ship docked.  Both vessels’ defense weapons are firing in multiple directions.  Suddenly the Seed Ship undocks and goes in one direction while Destiny turns and goes in another direction.  After a beat Destiny’s main gun lowers and begins firing.

CUT TO:

EXT. MOUNTAIN PATH
The six SG-Team members from the beginning of the trailer walk along a snow covered path.  Suddenly an alien attack helicopter flies over their heads and turns to face them.

CUT TO:

INT. ROOM
The camera focuses on Jonas Quinn pointing a pistol at Tomin.  Vala Mal Doran stands in front of Tomin blocking Jonas’ shot.

Jonas
(seething)
Do you have any idea what this son of a bitch did?!

CUT TO:

EXT. SPACE – PLANET ORBIT
An unfamiliar Earth ship sits in orbit of P4X-351, the planet Icarus base is set up on.  The camera pans and reveals three Ori motherships launching fighters towards the planet.  Then the camera zooms in as the Earth ship begins firing on the fighters.  We get a close-up of the ship’s rail guns firing.  The camera focuses on a single barreled turret as it fires several slugs.  The camera follows the slugs as they streak towards the fighters.  Just before the slugs hit the fighters they explode sending shrapnel over a wide area.  The fighters fly through the shrapnel and are destroyed.  One of the Ori motherships closes in on the Earth vessel and fires its main weapon.  The Earth vessel fires its Asgard beam weapons.  As the two ships’ beams streak towards their targets we…

Just a heads up that I am currently planning to post the first episode sometime between 10/02 and 10/08.  I will either post them as in-post text (like the trailer), a MS Word file, or a PDF file (or perhaps a combination of these methods).  Does anyone have any preferences?

As stated before this is set in an alternate reality to what was in the shows.  The major turning point was that in 2001 Apophis made an attack run at Earth that forced the Gate program to be revealed to the public.  This leads to some major changes to events which I will elaborate on to some extent a time line I will post before posting the episode.  I am also strongly considering writing mini-episodes/"webisodes"/whatever-you-want-to-call-them about some of the more important events that will be talked about in the time line.

Timeline part 1, focusing on differences from the shows.  Up until 2001 everything is pretty much the same as what was seen in the shows (Gate Wiki's timeline...)


2001
-Major Samantha Carter detonates Vorash's by sending a Stargate dialed to a black hole into it.  The resulting explosion destroys much of Apophis' fleet.  Apophis manages to escape before the supernova engulfs his ship.
-Angered at the loss he suffered at Vorash, Apophis rallies his remaining forces for an attack on Earth.
-Before Apophis' fleet arrives the U.S. Government is forced to reveal the existence of the Stargate Program in order to shore up the defenses need when the enemy fleet arrives.
-Apophis' fleet arrives and begins attacking Earth.  As his forces dialed the Gate the evacuation is halted.  At the last minute the Asgard arrive and destroy Apophis' fleet killing him.
-In the resulting political turmoil the Stargate Program is put on hold until a decision can be reached as to its operation.  All off-world teams are recalled to Earth.
-The Asgard participate in the hearings on the Stargate Program, supporting the SGC.

2002
-The international community reaches a decision regarding the Stargate Program.  The Stargate remains in the Cheyenne Mountain Complex with the SGC in operational control.  The Department of Homeworld Security is established and The Gate Alliance Treaty is signed.  Member nations of the Gate Alliance Treaty must share all technologies and information gathered from Gate travel. 
-Member nations create SG teams that are stationed at the SGC.  Several member nations begin building off-world bases. 
-The nations signing the Gate Alliance Treaty form the SGA or Stargate Alliance.  The SGA develops a watchdog agency referred to as the International Oversight Advisory or I.O.A. to monitor the SGC and Department of Homeworld Security.  (SGA members include but are not limited to: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, People’s Republic of China, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russian Federation, Serbia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, U.K., U.S.A., and Zimbabwe).
-An off-world, multi-national base is established and named the Lambda Site (Λ).

2003
-The SGC receives a signal from the Tollan Narim.  He says that he managed to rescue a handful of his people and they have been hiding from the Goa’uld for the last two years.  The Tollan survivors are allowed on Earth.  Narim eventually joins the SGC.

2004
-A Goa’uld loyal to Anubis gives an Earth terrorist group high yield naquadah bombs to attack Europe.  SGC personnel assist the German counter-terrorist group, GSG-9, in dealing with the terrorists and kill the Goa’uld.
-Major General Hammond is promoted to Lt. General and placed in command of the Department of Homeworld Security.  O’Neill is promoted to Brigadier General and is placed in command of the SGC.  Carter is promoted to Lt. Col. and placed in command of SG-1.
-Ba’al becomes the dominate System Lord.
-Atlantis expedition is launched under the authority of Dr. Weir.  The Wraith are awaked from their hibernation cycle 50 years prematurely.
-The second Prometheus-class ship BC-303-B Odysseus is completed.
-After several Tok’ra and Jaffa join Lambda Site, it is renamed SGΛ and becomes a joint venture between Earth, the Jaffa Rebellion, and the Tok'ra.
-The original Prometheus, BC-303-A, is refitted to serve as a mobile base for SGΛ, Major General Jacob Carter and Selmak are placed in operational command of SGΛ.
-Odysseus is hijacked on the way to Atlantis by Vala Mal Doran.

Episode 5, "Countdown".

Synopsis: Earth prepares for the impending Second Ori Attack while SGΛ personnel attempt to decode the Ancient data crystal retrieved in the last episode.

Trivia: This episode was originally going to be the Second Ori attack on Earth however after writing about an act worth of preparation for the attack I decided to make the episode all about the preparation and the next episode about the attack.
