As the door to her cage clanged shut, Michaela grabbed the bars to keep steady.  She was so terrified that she was dizzy, and she was a little afraid that she might faint.  Nearby were three other cages, holding Tyrell and Joe and a female Rizolan who she didn't know.  Like her, they were all practically naked-- We've literally been caught with our pants down, she thought.

She wanted to yell out for help or to beg the aliens to let them go, but she reminded herself that she was part of SG-2.  She was supposed to be the one everybody could count on.  Taking a breath and trying to keep her voice steady, she said, "Tyrell, don't worry.  My colleagues will come to help us and Joe and I will keep you and you"-- she nodded at the female Rizolan-- "safe until they do.  Joe, are you okay?"

She wished she had some idea of how she would keep that promise.

Andrea moved from the path to the bushes and eased quickly towards the modified Goa'uld cargo ship whilst assessing the situation. It was clear that she and SG-2 needed to get aboard the ship before it took off otherwise the chances of finding and rescuing the missing team members was almost zero. As she drew closer she could see that a couple of Jaffa were almost carelessly loading a few supply crates into a cargo hold whilst another two were on guard. "All right, we can leave a small amount of C4 here and circle around to the other side. Remotely detonate it to distract the Jaffa then slip aboard behind them." Andrea explained her hastily-formed plan quietly to the others. She didn't intend to use much C4. Just enough to create a bit of a pop and smoke. Enough to make the Jaffa curious but not enough to alarm them. Nayette nodded in acknowledgement of the plan as Andrea began moulding a small amount of C4 and stuck it to a tree trunk.

Joe smiled at Michaela.  "I'm fine, just pretty annoyed that I let myself be captured.  Wasn't expecting it and I forgot rule number one.  Be alert at all times."

He looked across at his companion of the previous night.

"We'll look after you," he said.  "Hopefully we're valuable to them."

He hoped his words were true.  At least they were all still alive and apart from some rope burns and bruises they were all unhurt.

With the C4 moulded in shape and stuck to the tree trunk Andrea led SG-2 in a semicircle around the modified Goa'uld cargo ship, sticking to the undergrowth to remain undetected. Once they were in position she lifted the remote detonator and set off the C4. There was a loud popping sound and a small flash of light and smoke from the tree where she'd put the C4 and obligingly the Jaffa guards turned towards the tiny explosion. She couldn't follow the brief conversation in Goa'uld but two of the Jaffa went to investigate the explosion. Andrea lifted her hand and gestured for her team to follow her and they slipped in up the ramp into the cargo hold before the Jaffa resumed their patrolling of the area while the other two went to investigate. Once inside the cargo hold she took cover behind some storage crates. Nayette settled down next to her as the Tau'ri Major peered cautiously around the edge of the crate. "Well. We're aboard at least." She whispered to the rest of SG-2. "Now we need to decide whether to lay low for a while and try to find our friends during transit or attempt to go now." Both ideas had their risks and she paused to think about which one was wisest and to hear input from her team.

Keith slipped around the undergrowth with the others after Andrea positioned her flash-bang on the tree trunk. Once the bang went off, they were able to sneak aboard the cargo vessel while two Jaffa went back on patrol and the other two went to investigate. He took shelter not far from her and Nayette and he glanced at her when she asked for their opinion. "We don't know when they're gonna board and take off." He said, listing one risk that Andrea likely had already thought of. There was a better than average chance that they would get caught trying to look for the others right now, though he wanted to find them and get out. Getting out might be a problem too, since they didn't have a convenient distraction like the flash-bang.

Eva was a bit anxious as she waited for the Jaffa to disperse, then she took shelter behind the crate next to where Andrea and Nayette was. She wanted to find the others and get out, but that was risky. Waiting until the ship took off had its own risks as well, but the Jaffa would be busy on the bridge. Neither option was without risk, just choosing which risk one was willing to take was the question.

Tyrell glanced around when Joe said he would take care of them and that they were hopefully valuable to the Jaffa. He wasn't sure how he could be taken care of, but he nodded. He sat on the thin bed that was in his cage and meditated to calm himself. He was no soldier, but if he could get away with them, he would fight to the best of his ability if the opportunity presented itself. Right now, compliance seemed to be the best option. Unless things changed he had a feeling they were headed for a life of slavery, but he didn't want to tell that to Michaela and frighten her even worse than she was now.

Before Andrea or anyone else in SG-2 could decide what to do one way or another the Jaffa boarded the cargo vessel-evidently having found little or nothing in their search for the diversion she'd created and the hatch sealed. Although there was no sense of motion there was a slight vibration in the floors and walls that indicated the engines were being fired up. It looked like the decision had been made for them. She motioned for her team to keep quiet as the Jaffa finished securing the cargo in the hold and trooped out with the familar clank-clank noises that their footseps made. Finally SG-2 was alone in the cargo hold. "Well." Andrea said.

"We'd better find our missing team members first and figure out a way to rescue them." Being familiar with the missions of SG-1 when they had saved Earth from Apophis' fleet she knew there were several ways off a ship in flight. Via a stargate, ring transporters or Deathglider. Although that was several steps ahead of them it never hurt to be prepared think ahead. "Nayette do your Goa'uld memories tell you anything useful?" She asked and the Drasnian shrugged. "In a ship this small they're likely locked up in another cargo hold." Andrea nodded. "Good enough. Follow me." Without further ado she stood up and held her assault rifle ready as she went over to the door. Nayette operated the controls to get it open and SG-2 stepped out into the corridor beyond.

Eva stepped out into the corridor with her assault rifle held ready to use if she needed it. She knew they didn't have much time to find the others, so they had to move fast. She followed Andrea down the corridor, hoping the next cargo hold was holding what they were looking for.

Keith moved out into the corridor once Nayette was able to open the door to the cargo hold they'd been hiding in. He was very irritable at the Jaffa for taking his friends and the helpless Rizolans. All they wanted to do was serve their visitors and all their group wanted to do was relax for once, something he hadn't done much of since he'd been turned into one of them. Though he wasn't really one of them, he would never serve a Goa'uld just because they were the only supplier of the larvae that would keep him alive. He'd rather die first, which he may very well do in a few more years if they didn't figure out how to either get him another larvae or find a way to keep him alive without one.

Now that she had promised to keep everyone safe, Michaela had to figure out how to do that-- even though her stomach was aching with fear. Joe had said he was okay, and she knew that he was brave, but both of the Rizolans were very quiet. They were used to living in a safe, quiet paradise and she had no idea how they would handle themselves in a situation like this-- though she suspected they would do better than her.

A minute later, she felt a vibration in the deck through her bare feet that told her the ship was powering up and taking off.  "Maybe if they're occupied with launching the ship, the Goa'uld won't notice a little noise," she said.

Using her right hand, she formed the posable fingers of her left-hand prosthetic into a fist.  Aiming it at the lock on her cage, she drew back her arm and gave an experimental punch. There was less noise than she expected-- the steel and ceramic alloy of her prosthetic actually muffled the sound.  The punch caused no pain in her artificial hand, of course, but it did cause an unpleasant stabbing sensation in her wrist and forearm which she hadn't expected.  Well, she would just have to deal with it.

Drawing back her arm again, she punched the lock as hard as she could. There was no visible effect.  So she punched it again. And again. And again.

Not for the first time in her career since joining SG-2 was Andrea glad that the Jaffa had to wear heavy, metal  uniforms that provided virtually no protection against bullets but made a distinct 'clank clank' sound whenever they walked in perfect formation. In this instance it allowed her and her team to duck behind some pillars that lined the corridors. Her mind subconsciously noticed the flawed design-why provide easy hiding places for the enemy? Then decided the Goa'uld were arrogant enough to believe nobody could infiltrate their ships. However by the time she and the rest of her team had let the patrol pass and made their way further down the corridor they had to take cover again as another slight vibration through the ship indicated that they had docked with a mothership in orbit. Andrea swore mentally. This mission just kept getting more complicated. But as she peered cautiously around the pillar she was hiding behind with Nayette just behind her she saw several cages being carried out of a nearby cargohold. Each cage had several burly Jaffa carrying it. Some of them contained strangers she didn't know. But others carried Michaela, Joe and the captive Rizolans. She didn't dare indicate to the captives that she was present but instead indicated to her team to begin following the Jaffa carrying the cages as they headed down the corridor and onto the mothership.

Keith started following the Jaffa carrying the cages, keeping well back and moving silently. Heavy and loud they may be with their metal suits, they still had excellent hearing. He was glad of the soft-soled army boots that made practically no noise as he crept along. He wanted to be out of there as soon as possible, and with their other team members and slaves. He wasn't about to leave them with anyone to subjugate if he could help it. He knew that Andrea and the others were close, he could hear their near-silent footfalls over the distant clomp of the Jaffa. The Jaffa were too busy with their load of cages to pay too close attention since they weren't expecting company, and that would be to their group's advantage.

Eva crept along, staying close to Andrea and Nayette, just in case the little alien needed protecting. She knew right now that the Jaffa were more interested in moving the cages than keeping a watch, so she didn't expect anything until they tried to free the others, but hopefully they would be able to get away with minimum fuss, though she wasn't too confident of that just yet.

Lhevel examined the cage that the human female had been banging with her fist briefly before deciding that she hadn't done any real harm to the lock. He'd given her a brief jolt with the pain stick with an order not to do that again before they continued on. Afterall they wouldn't be in their cages very long once their God, Khepri  had taken a look at the new slaves and assigned them tasks. He suspected that the human female's prosthetic hand would be conviscated. As it was he was leading the Jaffa that were carrying the cages off the cargo vessel and onto the Mothership. Again his thoughts turned to the prosthetic hand of the human female slave. He'd never seen anything like it before. It wasn't Goa'uld technology and most human worlds were too primitive to create such a thing. It bothered him. Still, he would report it to Khepri once they reached the holding areas of the Mothership.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Andrea waited until the group of Jaffa carrying the cages had passed her and the free members of SG-2 then began following at a safe distance down the corridors, following the ever present clanking of their footsteps. She was wary and alert, carefully making notes of every bend or corridor they went down so that she could trace her way back to the cargo vessel if neccessary. From the legendary exploits of SG-1 she knew most Motherships had a Stargate aboard that she and her team could use as a method of escape if necessary. The cargo ship that had brought them there was a second possibility but it would rely either on her own piloting skills and hope she could adapt her years as a fighter pilot to a spaceship-or hope that Nayette remembered enough from being possessed by a Goa'uld to pilot it. It seemed like an eternity before the group of Jaffa reached a set of double doors and walked inside. Quickly Andrea signalled behind her team to conceal themselves behind one of the convenient set of pillars. "Looks like end of te line-whatever's behind that door." She whispered to them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nayette followed the Jaffa along with Andrea and the others. She was mildly reassured by Eva staying close to her even though her heart was pounding and racing inside her chest, her stomach felt like a tightly knotted ball of anxiety and a light sheen of perspiration covered her skin. She found herself gripping her pistol tighter and tighter in her hands until they started to ache and had to relax them with an effort. Being on a Goa'uld Mothership brought back memories. Memories of Seshat, the Goa'uld that had once possessed her. She didn't like it at all. Most of the time she tried to repress them.

Nevertheless in a strange kind of way almost every corridor was familiar to her as though she herself had walked this ship before. When the Jaffa bearing the cages reached a set of double doors and began walking inside and Andrea stated she didn't know what was in there-Nayette knew. "Its the hall that leads into the holding areas of the ship." She whispered urgently. "In there the Goa'uld that ordered them enslaved will examine the slaves, assign them tasks or to be held in cells and the Jaffa rewarded for their service." She wrinkled her nose in distaste as more of Seshat's memories flooded her mind.

"Ow," said Michaela weakly, laying on the floor of the cage curled up in a fetal position.  One of the armored monstrosities that was now carrying her cage had poked her with a long metal stick that had sent a lightning bolt of pain through her body.  Whatever it was had been much worse than an electric shock.

Pushing herself up unsteadily to her knees, she tried to keep herself together.  She was feeling pretty rough.  Examining herself to see if the pain stick had left a mark, she realized that her coconuts had come off.  She recovered them from the corners of the cage and replaced them.  Her grassy fringe was holding up, but it had definitely lost a few blades.

A wave of hopelessness washed over her. She couldn't see the other prisoners from where she was and wouldn't be able to talk to them anyway with all the Jaffa around.  She hadn't been able to make much progress with the lock and now the aliens were aware of her prosthetic hand.  She wouldn't be surprised if they took it away from her.

She sat back against the bars and rubbed her aching forehead.  She was out of ideas.

Lhevel walked into the entry room and signalled his Jaffa to lower to the cages onto the floor. Most of them then left to resume their duties leaving only four scattered around the room at various points in guard positions. He only had to wait a couple minutes before Khepri walked into the room. The Goa'uld was inside a fairly short, male host. He had light brown hair, green eyes and wore functional trousers and vest made of white cotton. The familiar hand device rested around his right hand. He was accompanied by two burly Jaffa. One was his first prime, a male with black hair and the other was a helmeted guard.

"These are the new slaves?" Khepri swept his gaze over the occupants of the cages. "Yes." Lhevel bowed his head before his God. "Natives of the resort planet and two humans from unknown origin." He reported. "However the human female has a prosthetic limb. It is too primitive to be Goa'uld technology but too advanced to come from any Goa'u'd world." He waited as Khepri considered then nodded. "Bring her to me." Lhevel bowed and went to Michaela's cage. After struggling a bit with the damaged lock he grapsed her arm and pulled her out, keeping the pain stick held and ready in case she fought. He dragged her before Khepri and held her still while he examined her arm. "The Tau'ri have a certain level of technolgy." Khepri speculated. "Human, are you Tau'ri?" He asked.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Andrea watched from SG-2's place of concealment as most of the Jaffa left the room ahead of her. She got a quick peek inside the room, seeing it devoid of furniture and the cages had been placed in the middle. She saw Joe and Michaela inside. At the far end she could see entries into corridors further within. She caught the sight of two of the guards plus the Jaffa leader. Instinct told her to remain where she was-they wouldn't remain unguarded for long. Her suspicion was confirmed when a male that could only be the Goa'uld along with a couple guards. They walked inside and the doors closed behind them. "I hate waiting." Andrea muttered irritably.

Eva watched from her hiding place behind a large pillar as the cages were brought into a room and then a fairly short Goa'uld walked in behind them. She couldn't see anything else since the doors closed, then she heard Andrea muttering that she hated waiting. Eva glanced over at their leader and a faint smile crossed her face as she saw the unmistakeable look on her face. She was going to blow something up before they left, hopefully the entire mothership.

Keith was hiding behind the same large pillar that Andrea was when the cages were carried into a room and set down. Then a Goa'uld walked in and the doors closed, preventing them from seeing what was going on. Then he heard Andrea's agitated mutter about hating to wait and he glanced at her, smiling when he saw the look that said she was ready to blow something up. He leaned over so he could whisper without alerting anyone.

"You need any help setting the explosives?" He asked.

"The Tau'ri have a certain level of technolgy." Khepri speculated. "Human, are you Tau'ri?" He asked.

"No," replied Michaela, trying to sound defiant. "I'm  Aquarius. And you're in big trouble, because this is the Age of Aquarius."

She then stuck out her jaw defiantly and prepared herself to be killed.

Khepri regarded Michaela for a few moments and smiled. "Amusing. We will see if you continue to be funny after I am through with you." He lifted his hand and held the Goa'uld hand device in front of her forehead. "Do you know what this is, human?" He asked. But just as he was about to activate it there was the unmistakable sound of an explosion outside in the corridor. Distracted, he turned away from Michaela. "What was that?" He demanded of Lhevel and the assembled Jaffa who hurried out of the room to find out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"I wouldn't mind a hand." Andrea whispered back to Keith. She leaned over to Nayette. "Do you know where the nearest computer console is?" She asked the young Drasnian. "If we plant a bit of C4 there it should knock out some power systems or something and create a diversion." She explained the plan forming in her mind. "They won't be expecting us to be hiding here and we can ambush them. With the guards dealt with we can handle the Goa'uld." She doubted they would be able to kill the Goa'uld while he was shielded with a hand device but if one of the team kept a steady, slow stream of bullets at him it would effectively render him stuck in place while the rest of SG-2 rescued the captives. "Yes, there should be one down there." Nayette answered and pointed. "Take Lieutenant Weber down there and show him where to plant the explosives. The rest of us, lets spread out behind these pillars along the corridor." With her orders issued Andrea moved out and took cover behind another pillar closer to the computer console.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nayette looked up at Keith and gave a hesitant smile. "This way." She said and led him down the corridor while the other members of SG-2 got into position for their ambush. When they reached a T section she went over to the console and pulled open the panel exposing an array of control crystals. "If you put your C4 between the blue and red ones, it'll cause an overload and disable several systems in this part of the ship." She told him.

Khepri regarded Michaela for a few moments and smiled. "Amusing. We will see if you continue to be funny after I am through with you." He lifted his hand and held the Goa'uld hand device in front of her forehead. "Do you know what this is, human?" He asked.

Michaela knew what it was.  She closed her eyes and braced herself as a wave of fear and vertigo seemed to sweep her away from reality.  Then, after a few moments, she realized she was still alive and she could hear, as if from a distance, an explosion and shouting and running.

She opened her eyes. The light in the room seemed very bright and the colors very sharp.  Khepri was still standing in front of her, still holding his hand with the metallic gauntlet running from his fingers to his forearm up to her face, but he was looking away, angrily shouting orders. Suddenly, Michaela didn't feel fearful or dizzy anymore.  She seemed to be seeing everything move in slow motion and with incredible clarity.  She looked closely at the Goa'uld hand device and realized how much it resembled the brace on the first simple prosthetic she had been given after the Taliban attack.

She reached up and very easily slipped it off his arm and held it in her hands.  It was remarkably light.  She had no idea what to do with it.

As Michaela stood blinking at the alien artifact in her hands, Khepri stopped shouting and looked at his arm. He seemed rather nonplussed that his torture device was no longer there.

Michaela turned and ran for her life.

Keith went with Andrea over to the computer console and took the C-4 from her and planted it where she told him to. He then attached a detonator with a short timer and looked up at her. "It'll give us time to get back to the others." He said. He then hurried back to the others, hiding in the same spot he was hiding in before, waiting for the inevitable 'clomp, clomp' of Jaffa when they came to investigate.

Eva stayed where she was while Keith went to help blow up a computer console to divert attention from the prisoners. Hopefully the plan would go as planned and they could get the others out of there and back where they belonged without too much trouble. At least that's what she hoped would happen. Reality would be another thing. When Keith came back, she ducked behind her pillar and waited for the explosion.

Andrea felt curiously better when, shortly after Nayette and Keith returned and took cover, the C4 went off, creating a suitably loud explosion. She felt the deck vibrate from the explosion and the lights went out for a few seconds. She felt a certain vagueness and her feet lifted from the deck itself as the artificial gravity failed along with the lighting. That was going to complicate things, she thought to herself as she remained perfectly still. Any movement would cause her to start floating out of control. Then a backup generator seemed to kick in and emergency lighting came back on, as did the artificial gravity. As soon as her boots touched the deck and she had her assault rifle ready she heard the 'clomp clomp' sound of approaching Jaffa. "Show time." She muttered as she peered around the edge of the pillar and saw several Jaffa exit the room where the prisoners were being held. Andrea opened fire and killed several of the Jaffa before they knew what was happening.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nayette hid behind her pillar, clutching her pistol tightly in her hand as the C4 exploded, causing the power and artificial gravity to fail for a few seconds before the emergency backups kicked in. Like Andrea did, she stayed still in the brief moments of zero gravity so as not to float away or go into an uncontrolled spin. She heard the Jaffa come out of the room to investigate and fall neatly into to Tau'ri ambush. She leant around the edge of the pillar and shot one Jaffa with her pistol. It took several bullets before he collapse to the floor. Nayette felt a small surge of satisfaction. That was one less Jaffa to carry out the commands of the vile Goa'uld species.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Khepri didn't even feel the hand device being removed from his hand as he shouted orders to Lhevel and his Jaffa to investigate the explosion. When he looked at his hand and finally did notice, the human female who had stolen it had turned and was running from him. Enraged he took a couple steps to follow her but the lights and artificial gravity failed in that moment and the momentum and angle of his limbs and body sent him into an uncontrolled spin in the darkness. Khepri's anger and embarassment was only compounded when the lights and gravity returned and he fell to the deck in an unceremonious bundle. As he sat up he heard the unfamiliar sounds of alien weapons being fired. Unknown to him Lhevel had taken Nayette's bullets and had died. Kephri however got to his feet and furiously looked around for the human female that had stolen his hand device.
