Despite the dry heat of the desert air, the newly-promoted Major Andrea Tamell trotted through the sands of the desert at a rapid pace. She was covering the right flank of SG-1 as they made a retreat for the Stargate. Along with two other soldiers from the SGC, she had been assigned to assist SG-1 as Dr Daniel Jackson studied the ruins this alien planet had and conversed with the locals. And by 'assist' that meant standing quietly but alertly in the shade while the archaeologist did the actual work. At least until he'd declared there was nothing of use on this planet and they had decided to return to Earth. Only then to be attacked by giant scorpions. Oh the villagers had warned them of the giant scorpions but they hadn't meant 'how' giant. They happened to be almost as big as a horse. They'd driven off the giant scorpions after a protracted battle but Colonel O'Neill had been stung by the creatures which had left him to being half-carried by Teal'c across the sands back towards the gate while everyone else covered them. Andrea felt a certain amount of relief when she spotted the familiar ring-shape of the Stargate in the distance but that relief quickly turned to caution when she heard the shuffling and clicking that signalled that more of the giant scorpions were incoming. "We got scorpions incoming." She warned the others as she tightened her grip on her assault rifle and the group carried on towards the gate in formation.
On another planet entirely in a different part of the galaxy, Nayette wearily crawled back through the undergrowth and into her concealed tent. Since being exiled from Drasnia yesterday and setting up camp here she'd spent most of her time sleeping in the warmth and dryness of her tent, only venturing out for short periods of time for bathroom breaks. Once back inside the tent she zipped the flap shut again and removed her boots. She sat on top of her bedding for a few minutes while she consumed some of the food and water stacked neatly next to her bedding. She had enough food and bottled water for another six days and could live off the military nutrient bars she'd been given for another three after that. Since she was camped near a lake water wouldn't really be a problem. Maybe she would feel strong and healthy again after six more days. Or maybe not. Nayette wished she had been given more time to recover before being exiled but there was nothing she could do about it. After eating and drinking she lay down and tucked herself up in her sleeping bag then arranged her pillow and blanket just so before making herself comfortable. As usual it wasn't long before she fell asleep again.
