    --Chapter 3

    Back at the SGC, the gate activates. The technician reads the IDC as Midway 2, with a video transmission included. The message is from Carter on board the Hammond. She reports that the Odyssey picked up a signal from unknown space. She want permission to transfer from the Hammond to the Odyssey and try and get a fix on the location. She insists the importance of this to General Landry, but Landry wants her to continue onward to Atlantis and continue to oversee the satellite development. The Odyssey commander states that he is capable of carrying out a mission without Carter. Carter tries to convince both that she is the best choice to embark on this mission. Landry states that there is no "mission" yet. Carter again states that she is the only one available that is most experienced with the Asgard core on the Odyssey. Landry tells her that there's no arguing on this one, and she is to proceed to Atlantis. Carter reluctantly agrees. Landry orders the Odyssey commander to transport Major Lorne and his team from Midway aboard and proceed on to the empty region and try to locate the source of the signal.

    Lorne and his team boards the Odyssey and they head out for the region where the source is believed to be located. Even with the hyperdrive ZPM-boosted, it would take about another five days to reach the general area, putting them about eight million light years from Pegasus.

    Sheppard and Ford arrive back on Earth to attend a meeting with the I.O.A. regarding Ford's future in Atlantis, and to be more specific, the military. He knew things wouldn't just go back to the way they were like nothing happened, he still couldn't figure out why the I.O.A. just let the Atlantis expedition go back to the city after the Asurans wiped out the Tria crew, and then the expedition came back almost like nothing happened. If he ended up with only a slap on the wrist, he couldn't accept that. He didn't like the fact that one Wraith kept coming back to Atlantis and in so, creating an alliance with one of them. He kept it to himself, since the command structure seems to tolerate this. He could sense that Sheppard was wanting it to be over with completely, and he didn't need to analyze Ronon for his thoughts on it.

    Carter arrived at Atlantis and work resumed on satellite construction. She expressed her disatisfaction that she was not allowed to transfer to the Odyssey and head for the extragalactic region. Woolsey said to her that if the decision were his he would have had her and the Odyssey commander switch chairs and continue on. She pressed again.

    "At the least they could have gotten a hold of Daniel and had him gate to Midway first, then picked him up. This is right in his field."

    "Again, if it were my call, it would have gone down that way. Right now, we need to fortify the city. We don't have the luxury of 'being destroyed' anymore. All of the Wraith hives know about us, and our location. Several hive groups have been identified and we are tracking them. Each hive has a minimum of five cruisers to each one. It's likely that when Todd was here in the city the first time, it was more than the gatebridge and the original Midway that he got from our computers. Your tactics of sending the 304s out to engage the Replicators proved very effective in neutralizing their battleships. We can't use that again confidently, assuming that they know we might try that again."

    "Which is why we need the Odyssey to lead a full assault against them before they make it to Atlantis. All our 304s currently in Pegasus could engage each group one at a time, and slow them down."

    "The I.O.A. has made it clear that we are to fortify a complete defense around the city. Their decision is final."

    "Very well." Carter leaves his office.

    --

    Five days later, the Odyssey arrives in the region, with the light around the ship far less lumintate. The Colonel orders his crew to begin scanning the region for the source of the signal. A technician near the Asgard core contacts the Colonel, informing him that the Asgard core is registering some unusual readings. He indicates that the entire ship is being scanned, from the computers to the ship to the crew itself. The Colonel wants to know where the scan is coming from. He replies that the ship isn't being scanned from the outside, that it's the Asgard core doing the actual work, using the ship's full systems to scan itself. The technician attempts to access the controls, but the controls are frozen. Less than a minute later, the activity stops and the display reads that the information is being transmitted. The Asgard computer systems resume normal function a few seconds later.

    The Colonel is with an engineering team in the control room analyzing the systems to see what was scanned and sent. It is realized that the structure of the ship, it's composition, the crew physiology, the entire computer databases including all the knowledge from the Asgard core was included--quite almost everything on the ship.

    "I want to know where that information was sent right now." the Colonel said.

    "I can't get a reading. As far as I know, it's got to be somewhere within the next 100-200 thousand light years. I don't get it how it just copied everything on the ship. This isn't designed to do that."

    "Whoever the hell it was that just pulled it off obviously knows how to operate Asgard technology."

    "You think it could be the Pegasus Asgard?"

    "Haven't heard from them a year and a half after the Attero Device was destroyed. If it was them, they've obviously been working on getting back out of the galaxy."

    "These messages are in Ancient. The computer's translating now."

    "What do we have?"

    "It reads: Scan Complete. Transmitting to target."

    "That's not helpful."

    "What the hell?"

    "What is it?"

    The display reads out another command sequence.

    "It's activating the Asgard hologram projector."

    A hologram materializes into an unexpected form.

    Continue on.

    Spoiler:
    The Colonel was shocked at the sight before him. The hologram of an Ancient spoke out to him.

    "You know who we are, but you do not know why we have done this. Our kind has been run to the ends of the universe over and over again, and yet we lead ourselves to destruction again and again. Corruption, fear, decadence, embellishment, much as have your kind. We know who you are as well, and have created this message in response to your technological premise this far outward. We also know that by this time, you will have inhabited our city of Atlantis and have encountered a parasitic species that you will call the Wraith. We know that these beings will subjugate the galaxy for ten millenia until your kind come into the galaxy and disrupt their order. You must never engage them without using your most advanced technology properly, with absolute resolve. One greater than any you have encountered has come to us and offered a revelation far more dangerous than we could imagine."

    The Colonel ordered his engineers to record the whole thing. The engineer replies that
    the system already is recording the message.

    "This is incredible. Get me a fix on it's origin, right now!"

    "According to this, it's embedded in the Asgard core. It's reconfigured the core to project an image onto the bridge."

    "They've got a copy of the entire Asgard core, plus God knows what else from us. Any way to trace the upload?"

    "These readings are completely unrecognizable. It's almost gibberish."

    "Keep at it."

    Back on Earth, Sheppard, Ford, and Woolsey were at the SGC along with some I.O.A. dignitaries. Ford had been grilled extensively for days and Sheppard was arguing for his placement on his team once again. Sheppard argued that Ford's years fighting the Wraith and surviving all this time gives him more personal experience than anyone on the Atlantis base, including Ronon now. He wanted the man once under his command to be a part of the Atlantis team again.

    Ford would get a spot again out there, but just barely. Proving he has had more combat experience with the Wraith than anyone on Atlantis, and gaining incredible insight, he knew what would be needed to be accomplished to eliminate the Wraith completely. All those years going at it with only himself and a small group, he must have eliminated somewhere between 200-250 Wraith personally. With his allies, they were able to take down numerous darts, and hijack a Wraith cruiser. Sheppard hated the idea of him running around with his gang playing galactic cowboy. Ford hated the fact that the Atlantis team had their 304s at their disposal, and the means to track hive ships, without doing much after Asuras was destroyed. Someday, he would choose to outright confront them about why they weren't knocking out hives left and right. All the hives could have been taken care of some time ago. He didn't want them to know exactly how he knew about the newer capabilities of the 304s, and the plans of the Wraith to attempt to head outward into the universe. He was trusted to hide a big secret from Atlantis.

    Back on the Odyssey, the Colonel was directing his crew to get a fix on the upload's direction. The technicians were continuing to work, but not to much effect. An hour later, another message appears on the main display. Reading in English, the message reads, "The coming doomsday will give you a choice."

    "That's all?" said the Colonel.

    The message changes.

    "Leave this galaxy and you might survive. Stay, and many of you shall perish."

    The Colonel isn't happy with the message.

    "Major, take us further out. I want to find these people."

    The Odyssey jumps again to hyperspace.

    The main display on the terminal for the Asgard core starts registering some data regarding the engines. While the ship is traveling through hyperspace, our perspective changes to something just flying through the ship,
    the walls, almost moving around the ship and crew like a fly. About another two hours later, the ship drops out of hyperspace.

    "Major, what the hell's going on? Why are we stopped?" asked the Colonel.

    "The hyperdrive won't engage. The engines are fine, but the drive will not engage."

    "Find the problem. In the meantime, prep a relay burst to Midway Station informing them of our progress."

    "Sir, the subspace antennas aren't working."

    "What?!" the Colonel screamed.

    "Long-range communications are dead. We can't send a signal to Midway."

    "Back us out of here. I don't like the looks of this."

    "The hyperdrive still won't engage."

    "Try sublight. Take us back and try the hyperdrive after a minute."

    The Major tries the sublight engines.

    "Sublight will not respond."

    "What the hell is it out there? Somethings tampering with our systems. Find it!"

    "Sir, we're moving forward again."

    The ship's hull reflection starts to fade and resonate. Several systems are knocked offline, except for life support and the Asgard core. The Asgard core starts registering that the ship is jumping to hyperspace again, this time rather being blue around the ship, it is black-light colored. The ship is not under the crews control.

    I will write another chapter soon.

    For now, I will ask, based on events so far, what do each of you think is happening?

    First off I am loving this...keep it coming.

    I am curious as to how this new enemy will be. Obviously it is not the Wraith, but the Wraith will give us enough of problem that we cannot fight a two front war. I cannot wait to find out!!!!

    Well, I will tell you this. You are loosely correct.

    (With the "Return Of The Ancients" series on break, I'll step in and "air" another chapter to entertain you all.)

    Continuing on.
    ____________________
    Spoiler:

    The Odyssey is brought out of hyperspace, it's exit window resonating rather strange effects. The Colonel looks ahead with confusion, as there appear to be no stars around the ship. It's pure darkness around the Odyssey.

    "What the hell was that? Where are we?"

    "As far as I can tell, we have moved further forward."

    "Is the hyperdrive working yet? I want us to send a signal to Midway ASAP."

    The only main systems online as of now are life support and the Asgard core."

    "Why the Asgard core? What is it that keeps triggering the damn thing?"

    Another hologram is projected onto the bridge, though there is no slight light radiance from it.

    "You have been brought here because you have advanced far in your development, and through your fights with the Wraith. We know that the Wraith will go to Atlantis once again in force, and though you will try and fight them off you will lose the coming battle." (With that statement, the Colonel isn't too pleased to hear that.) "Your actions in the past will come to judge your future. You cannot eliminate the Wraith as you currently are now. You must attain the conviction necessary in order to survive and emerge in victory. If you do not, you will be destroyed, and the Wraith will continue to consume, heading outward into the voids and consume."

    "What the hell...." the Colonel said to himself.

    "Here, in this void, I, Janus of the Lanteans, shall gauge your efficiency and nature on this level. Your ship, Odyssey shall be tested against your greatest opponents."

    "How the hell does he know the name of this ship? This Ancient was alive way back during the first Wraith war. That was 10,000 years ago." He looks off to the side for a moment.

    "I know the name as I know yours, Colonel."

    A look of chill is thrown right on the Colonel's face.

    "You aren't a hologram?"

    "Not now, I am not. The message that you first received was in fact created 10,000 years ago when I, and a small group returned to this region and began our plan to rid our galaxy of the Wraith once and for all. In my attempts, I did come close to finding effective solutions, though I was hampered with an consequence to my invention that was meant to destroy the Wraith fleet, and eliminate the main source of their power. It is their fleet that they use to keep a hold over on the populations of the galaxy at large."

    "Yes, in fact another race did find your device and was able to activate it. The original Atlantis gate was destroyed in the process."

    "I know."

    The Colonel's expression turns to shock. "You knew?!"

    "I know about the Asgard. I know they have been attempting to destroy the Wraith for a very long time now. And very soon they will be heading out in force. However, I will not tell you the outcome of this."

    "You can see the future?"

    "Only through my developed means. Us here will test you. Prepare to defend yourself." Janus dissapears.

    The weapons officer has his control back. "Sir, weapons control is back. We have sublight as well. Wait--we have contacts closing!"

    The klaxons go off on the ship as the ship is rocked by weapons fire.

    "Can we tell who they are?"

    The weapons officer is startled. "They're Wraith!"

    "Get a weapons lock, now!"

    Outside, the Odyssey is being fired upon by four Wraith Cruisers. The Odyssey is moving to engage them. A small series of darts emerge from the cruisers and flank the Odyssey.

    "They're trying to flank us!"

    "This can't be real, can it? How the hell did they get all the way out here?"

    The bridge shakes again.

    "Real enough. Return fire, main battery!"

    The Odyssey moves across, firing it's plasma beam weapons, eliminating a cruiser and disabling another. The other two continue firing, as the darts swarm the ship, blasting away at the shields.

    "Railguns, defensive fire. Try and elminate those darts." The ship shakes again. A series of railguns begins to eliminate the darts. The other cruisers continue firing. The Odyssey dispatches with several more darts and moves for another firing pass on the cruisers. Another is eliminated, leaving only two still intact. The last cruiser continues to fire on the Odyssey, making no attempts to escape, despite all other Wraith ships destroyed or disabled.

    "Why don't they attempt to run? They just keep moving around us, expecting our shields to fail."

    Another Ancient appears on the bridge, this one being different.

    "Why haven't you finished them off? Your weapons are more than enough to decimate them within seconds. Yet, you hesitate. Had they been in your position, and you in theirs, you would be gone now. You are becoming like we once were. Now fight!"

    Several more contacts appear on the scanners. Three hive ships are approaching the Odyssey.

    "Picking up three hive ships incoming! They're firing on us!"

    "What the hell is all this? Those ships can't be real."

    "We can make as real-like as we can. Now destroy the Wraith and we can continue."

    "Continue with what?"

    "Your test."

    The Odyssey, taking fire from the Wraith, rolls along it's approach, and fires on the first hive ship. The hive is extensively damaged, as the other two begin to launch darts. The Odyssey targets the dart bay of the second hive, destroying it, and triggering a massive series of breaches on it's entire left side. A sizable amount of debris is hanging off the side of the hive, as a large wave of darts swarm the Odyssey, and fire all across its shields. The railguns are dropping the darts left and right, as darts begin suicide runs to drain the Odyssey's shields faster. Another plasma beam blows off the hyperdrive engines on the hive, as the hives hull falls apart. The third hive launches a wave of darts, as the Odyssey turns to the last hive.

    "Take down the last one!" The Colonel ordered.

    The Odyssey heads at the remaining hive, railguns blazing in multiple directions, chewing up darts as it eliminates the final hive.

    "Take us back and let's send a team to the cruiser. I want to know how that ship got here."

    As the Odyssey approaches the remaining cruisers they dissapear.

    "What the hell? You have something to do with this, don't you?" The Colonel said around himself.

    Janus appears again. Alongside him is the other Ancient from before, and one additional on the other side of him.

    "Yes, our station is capable of creating apparitions to test you. We should tell you that the damage you incurred during the battle is in fact real, and not an apparition."

    "Real?! There's no way the Ancients would do this."

    "A lot has happened since......... the crossing. When we were forced from our city of Atlantis, some of us were in fierce opposition to council doctine and our leader open about his beliefs was evicerated by our leader, Moros. Now we have come again to this life to set this, but only this right. You have achieved an extensive amount of ability through your victories against the Goa'uld, the Kiron Replicators, and even the Ori. You have the power to put an end to the Wraith, yet you stand still. You continue to underestimate their ability and intelligence as we once did, yet you vastly underestimate your own capabilities."

    "Then why haven't you come to Atlantis and taken charge? What are you doing all the way out here, whatever the hell it is?" said the Colonel.

    "One year after our exodus from Atlantis," Janus began.

    A flashback to the events takes place. Janus' cloaked gateship is moving across a planetary surface, with the remains of an advanced civilization recently decimated by the Wraith.

    "They're eliminating the most advanced civilizations one by one." said Janus.

    "They're attempting to prevent anyone from gaining enough technological power to effectively fight them. Methodical." said another Ancient.

    "I'm picking up something on the sensors. There are four ships at the far edge of the system, one is distinctly Wraith. The three others are consistent with this planet, Nelgor. The Wraith ship is attacking the three other ships. The other ships appear to be transports."

    "Most of their military vessels were confirmed destroyed in the past years. Some of them may be attempting to escape with their technology intact."

    "There appear to be as many as 3000 humans aboard those transports. The cruiser has a number of darts also with it."

    "They won't survive. If anything, the Wraith are trying to disable them, and take the crews for feeding. Parasites they are."

    "And our kind, in our quests for creation, ultimately made them what they are. The council wouldn't take my warnings in a serious light, and I resigned in protest."

    "Yet Janus stayed on."

    --(We return to the present.)

    "My experiments in temporal science and mass subspace disruptors have proven that I needed a greater resolve to fight off the Wraith and put an end to them. In order to decisively win the war is to cut our losses."

    "Cut your losses? You mean use that "Attero Device" that we destroyed a year and a half ago?"

    "Yes, we know you have destroyed it.... shifting the upper hand back to the Wraith again." said another Ancient.

    "We didn't do it for the Wraith. We did it to protect the human populations from the destructive effects of your device."

    "We know. There is more than this in the universe that will affect this galaxy, and yours. Following our kind will lead your, or any race to extinction."

    Great! I'm glad someone responded. I'm still trying to get my pace back up and more on par with the other major works currently in production here.

    I would like to get some storyboard sketches done, and perhaps some "visual effects" done as well in the future. However some future ship designs will negate that portion quite extensively.

    The specific names I am looking for are for a Lantean security commander and a general in command of a combat fleet protecting a delegation.

    On the planet's surface is the delegation, with three gateships plus a transport and one destroyer overhead. The Wraith have two cruisers overhead at a distance as well. Over and outward from the planet is a fleet of 28 Lantean ships.
