2017

Unfortunately, Jack O’Neill’s gut was correct. The monsters kept attacking various countries through the world. The world government started to get together to pool their resources and form the Pan Pacific Defense Corps in 2014. In addition, the scientific community tried to come up with new weapons to use against the aliens. The monsters started to come every 6 months, but recently, they’ve been coming every 3 months and seem to have gotten stronger and harder to kill.

The worst part was that it seemed like there was a variety of Kaiju so the militaries had to make sure that they could handle anything. The Kaiju that attacked San Francisco was called “Trespasser” and it had a very thick skin with a height of 92 meters. Some people nicknamed the monster “Axe-head” due to what looked like an axe that sprouted from its’ nose to forehead region on the face. The second Kaiju looked like a lovechild of a T-Rex and sword-fish and it was nicknamed ‘Knifehead’.

A group of scientists came up with a huge, fighting robot called Jaegers. The Jaegers were about 10 meters tall with an interface that a person can interact with by connecting in the “brain” of the robot through a metal spine that engaged the cortex of the pilot’s brain.

The pilots, people manning the Jaegers, had to go through rigorous mental and physical examinations to make sure that they would be able to handle the piloting job after they enlisted in the Jaeger Academy. In addition to the examinations, the pilots had to successfully fight a Kaiju in simulation fight. If they succeeded in everything, then they were assigned a Jaeger to man. At first, the scientists thought they would only need one person to interact with it but it proved to be too much for the human mind. When they tried it with two pilots manning the robot, the robot responded well and there was less effect on the humans. Furthermore, the scientists realized that the pilots would need a connection in order for the strength of the robot to be strong enough to fight the Godzilla-like monsters. The connection could be through family or friendship or lovers. As long as the pilots had it, then the Jaeger was most likely going to win the fight. One of the best Jaegers is called Gipsy Dangers, which is piloted by Yancy Becket and his brother, Raleigh Becket. The Becket brothers were assigned their Jaeger in early 2017 so they could help protect the Alaskan coastline.

In the mean time, the SGC were trying other avenues to find a way to stop the problem or come up with a better way of combating these aliens invading their planet. The premiere SGC team, SG1, upped their team missions, in hopes of finding the elusive Lost City of Atlantis or Aztlan or an ally that would help them against the fight or provide them with a weapon that would help with the issue.

With the latest world-threatening crisis that wasn’t the Kaiju averted, Daniel was able to convince Jack to allow him and a small team to go to the Antarctica. Daniel made sure that he had all of the primary books with him to use as a basis. He had thought up of a couple of questions that Carson could ask the Ancient interface. Major Lorne was going along as the team leader and for safety.

Once the team arrived in the Antarctica base, they went in different directions: Major Lorne and his four military members searched the base to make sure everything was secure, Daniel went to the nearby desk and took out his texts that he immediately consulted, and Dr. Beckett went to take a short nap. Dr. Sheppard and Dr. McKay went to the main control room to look things over before they attempted to turn on the equipment, manually.

As Major Lorne was going around the room, he noticed that the equipment was starting to light up. Becoming concerned, he decided to ask Dr. McKay about it.

“Dr. McKay, are you turning on the equipment?”

“Nope. Why do….” Rodney stopped when he looked up to see what was going on. “You must have the ATA gene and a very strong one at that, based on the way the equipment is reacting to you.”

Due to the various crises going on, including the medical issues that have come from being a pilot for the Jaegers and dealing with Kaiju, Dr. Beckett hadn’t been able to thoroughly figure out how to isolate the ATA gene. The main test that they had to figure out if the person had the gene was by being around the Ancient technology. At the moment, the Antarctica base had the most Ancient technology that the SGC had access to so it’s primarily through the visits there that they figured out who had the gene. No one made the equipment like Major Lorne has, except for General O’Neill.

“Haven’t you been to this base before?” John asked Evan.

“Never had the time. When it was discovered, I was off-world and haven’t had a chance to come here for a mission until now.”

“Why don’t you slowly go to the chair and lay down in it?” Rodney said. He figured that Evan would have the best chance of having the chair telling him the answers to Daniel’s questions about the Atlantis mythology.

Evan disengages his gun from his front side and hands it off to Markhouse. He turns to say, “Keep watch. Make sure nothing bad happens to anyone. If it does, then you will be on KP duty for a month.”

“Yes, sir.”

Evan turns and slowly approaches the chair. As he does, the chair starts to glow white with a bluish tint. He slowly reaches out with a hand and when he finds that nothing happens, he slowly lowers himself in the chair. Once he is fully seated, the chair reclines back as Evan’s mind engages with the Ancient interface in the chair.

In the distance, Evan hears Rodney say, “Why don’t you see if you can get the chair to show you what Earth looks like?”

Evan closes his eyes and focuses on the request. When he hears gasps, he opens his eyes to see a 3D beach-ball size representation of Earth.

“Major, can you please ask about Atlantis?” Evan hears Daniel ask.

Evan focuses on Atlantis but when he doesn’t hear any reaction, he opens his eyes to see that the 3D globe hadn’t change.

“How about Aztlan?”

When Evan tries to think about Aztlan, he tries to picture what it looked like so that the interface might have an idea what he is asking about. Soon, he hears a shout of triumphant, which probably means Daniel having found the location.

Evan slowly opens his eyes to see that the globe is no more. Instead, it shows an image of Arizona with a bright light, almost beacon-like, flashing just north of Flagstaff.

“There is a volcano near there. Could Aztlan have been a part of that region but was destroyed when the volcano erupted?” John asked.

“Maybe. It could be like America’s version of Pompeii. I can’t believe that Aztlan had been in our backyard all of this time.”

“You did not think to look on Earth?” Rodney asked like he was offended that Daniel did not think to inquire about Atlantis on Earth.

“Well, based on the fact that our Egyptian gods are actually aliens from our galaxy, I thought this might have been a similar thing. I did give Earth a cursory look but I decided that it had a greater chance of it being somewhere out in the galaxy. Major Lorne, can you ask the interface about any protector of Aztlan?”

Evan closes his eyes and thinks about the Jaegers that he has seen. If Daniel is correct, than the protector might look like one of the Jaegers. After a few minutes, he starts to see images in his head that look similar to the Jaegers but seem to have a different shine to it. The images start to go through the schematics of it and show the various variations on the arms and what powers it. Evan tries to ask the interface to e-mail the schematics to John, Rodney and Daniel since all three would drool over them. Next, Evan queries the interface about the history of the protector. After a short while, Evan slowly disengages his mind and body from the chair.

“Did you check your e-mail, Dr. McKay, Dr. Sheppard and Dr. Jackson?”

He saw all three scramble to their own computer and check their work e-mail. When they started to fist pump into their air and scream for joy, Evan knew that the interface had sent them the information.

“It looks like my work here is done.” Evan said as he rose from the chair.

“For now. We will need your help with this project. The interface clearly likes you and your ATA gene. You will want to pack your bags since you’ll be coming with us to Arizona.” Rodney said with a smirk on his face. With the information that Evan was able to get from equipment, he knew that Jack would re-assign Evan to Arizona, to help with the dig. With the proof of the protector, there are good chances that it is still residing in Arizona, where Aztlan is. Rodney McKay had strong faith that General Jack O’Neill would approve the mission to find Aztlan in Arizona but nothing was certain until Jack O’Neill signed off on it.

2014

Auggie was trying to wait patiently in his doctor’s office, awaiting the latest results on his eyes. Auggie’s life had changed in the blink of the eye. One minute he was with his Special Forces team in Afghanistan, on leave from the CIA, trying to disarm an IED when it went off. He lost his eyesight and the rest of his team members. Due to the blindness, he was honorably discharged from the Force but was able to keep his job at the CIA as a tech operative.

When he arrived back home, he distanced himself from his friends and family, feeling like they couldn’t understand what happened or how it felt to go from being at the top of your game to where you couldn’t figure out if someone was trailing you or if the person in front of you was friend or foe. Auggie had to relearn how to move and interact with people and it took a lot of time for him to adjust.

He had been seeing his optometrist, Dr. Higgins, for the past 6 months, on a monthly basis so they could determine the amount of damage that happened to his eyes and whether or not he could undergo some new treatment to at least gain some of his sight back. He didn’t realize how much he relied on it, until it was gone. He has learned new ways to see, feel, and interact with the world around him.

“How have you been, Auggie?”

Due to the constant appointments with his doctor, they have become good friends with each other.

“As well as can be expected, Dr. Higgins. I’m hoping that the results of the test will show that there might be some hope for my eyesight.”

“Unfortunately not, Auggie.”

“Well, thank you for your time and effort. It does mean a lot, even though you can’t do much for it.”

“I do greatly admire your will and determination to keep living like you have before.”

“Is there anything else?”

“Are you still seeing Dr. Heightmeyer?”

“Yes. The CIA requires that I see a psychiatrist for at least a year after the event to make sure that I’m coping with everything.”

“Very well. At this point, why don’t you come see me every other month?”

“Sounds good.” Getting up, Auggie reached out his hand, waiting for the doctor to slide his hand into his to shake it.

“See you in two months, Auggie. If anything happens, please feel free to call me or my office.” The doctor took Auggie’s hand to shake it.

“Thank you. See you around.”

Auggie pulls out his walking stick, even though he knows the halls of the doctor’s office fairly well. Once he gets outside, he hears the driver call him over to the car. The CIA arranged for a car service to take him to and from the doctor appointments for the ease and convenience. Over the time of going to the appointments, Auggie has gotten to know his driver.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

After being in his office for a few hours, trying not to think about the doctor’s appointment, he hears the sliding doors to his office being opened. Upon smelling the perfume, he knows it’s his boss, Joan Campbell.

Pulling off his headphones that he uses for some of his work programs, he says, “Joan, what can I do for you?”

“Auggie, do you have a few minutes?”

“Sure. What’s up?”

“There is something I want to talk to you about,” she says as she closes the door to his office. Auggie braces himself because it’s usually not good when she attempts privacy in his office.

“What is it?” Auggie tries to say in a calm voice. No use showing anger or annoyance before knowing what the problem is.

“I am assigning you the new asset, Annie Walker. I expect you to mentor and handle any issues she might have while on assignment.”

“When is she due?”

“Within the hour.”

“What’s her first assignment?”

“I’ll send you the details. I expect you to handle all of your duties.”

“I will.”

“I’ll bring her by your office when I give her a tour of the section.”

“I’ll be here.”

“See you later.” Without waiting for a response, she turns on her heels and heads back to her own office, at the front of the section.

Needing to figure out the assignment and his new asset, he puts his headphones back on and peruse the database in Langley.

A little over an hour later, he hears the sliding door to his office open and smells Joan’s perfume. Instead of saying anything, he waits for Joan to introduce them.

“Auggie, I would like you to meet your new asset, Annie Walker. Annie, Auggie will be your handler.”

Auggie leans up and pushes away his chair. He turns and holds out his hand, waiting for Annie to grab his hand. Feeling a soft, thin fingered hand slip into his, Auggie says, “It’s nice to meet you, Annie.”

“It’s nice to meet you too, Auggie.”

Due to the inflections in her voice, he could tell that she was a bit surprised to see that he was blind.

“I hope this won’t be a problem.” He says while vaguely waving towards his eyes.

“Oh, no, it’s fine. I was just…”

“Surprised?”

“Yes”

“Soon, you’ll won’t even notice it.”

“Auggie, I was going to talk to Annie in my office. Afterwards, I’ll send her to your office before she goes off on her assignment.”

“I’ll get things set-up.”

“See you soon.”

Once hearing the door closed, he sat back in his chair. He had a feeling in his gut that Annie would prove to be a very faithful and dedicated asset, even a friend. He looked forward to working with her. He just hoped that none of her assignments brought her close to those enormous monsters that kept attacking Earth. It was shortly after the monster attacked San Francisco when he lost his eyesight. He knew how impressively large and strong those beings were. They did not look like anything of this world. He just hoped that they would be beaten soon and stopped causing so much destruction around the world.

Knowing he couldn’t solve the issue with a click of his fingers, he went back to work, waiting for Annie

2013

To this day, Daniel Jackson, similar to the rest of the population, remembered the day that the monsters, Kaiju, first started to attack Earth. The event is etched into his memory like his parent’s generation always knew where they were when J.F.K. was assassinated or when the space shuttle, Challenger, exploded. Daniel Jackson had only been at the SGC as the linguistic expert for a few months and was wrapping his mind around the idea of aliens and his theories about the pyramid being correct. When Daniel received an e-mail alert about the monster’s attack, he thought it was an April Fool’s joke or a prank that the SGC pulled on the newbie. Much to his chagrin, it was the truth when he saw the videos being uploaded to YouTube. Daniel immediately runs to his good friend, Jack O’Neill, to see if he had heard the news and to see what was being done about the situation.

When he reached Jack’s office, he knocked and entered when he heard “Come in” through the door.

“Did you hear the news?”

“The monster near San Francisco?”

“Yes. Do you have any details on how it got there or where it came from? I thought the aliens that SGC dealt with were the Goul’d and were smaller, snake-like, not Godzilla-like.”

“They are. It seems like we might have a new alien on the scene, which does not make a happy President and a very grumpy General Hammond.”

“Where is Major Lorne?”

Daniel had become very good friends with Evan Lorne when he first arrived and knew that Lorne’s family still lived in the San Francisco area.

“He’s on a mission. I haven’t called him back yet from his mission.”

“His mission to mine ore?”

“Yes. He is supplying the information about the drilling. He’s important.”

“It’s also important that he knows about his family and his hometown. Do you have an update on them?”

“They didn’t make it.”

“Christ, Jack. He definitely needs to be called back to mourn his family.”

“I was going to call him back soon. It was only confirmed a few minutes before you arrived that his family was killed due to the monster attacking San Francisco.”

“Was it all of his family?”

“Just his parents. Apparently, they were on the Golden Gate bridge, stuck in traffic, when the monster, or alien, decided to take a stroll through the bay.”

“It’s nice to know that you still have your sarcasm.”

“Daniel.” Taking a deep breath through his nose and out through his mouth, he continued, “When you’ve seen as much death and destruction as I have, you learn to distance yourself from the situation. I know it seems cold and uncaring but it’s better than being numb and not able to do my fucking job. I feel the pain of all of those people dead or badly injured. Trust me.”

After a few minutes of really looking at Jack’s face, he could see the tension and the pain in his eyes. Daniel knows that Jack does have a big heart that he has shielded due to the pain of the job, the divorce with his wife and the death of his son. Daniel often wondered how different Jack would be if his son hadn’t accidentally killed himself with a gun from Jack’s safe in the house.

“I do. Can you at least let me know when he arrives back? I want to be there for him. He will need someone to cry on, at least. At worst, someone to help him get to San Francisco and be the general background helper for him and his sister.”

“I’ll clear your time off with General Hammond.”

“Thank you, Jack. I’ll be in my office unless you need me for something else.”

“Not really, unless you happen to know where these aliens came from or happen to have a nuclear bomb hiding somewhere?”

“Isn’t that a bit extreme?”

“Maybe for now but I have a gut feeling that it wasn’t a fluke. We need to be better prepared, which would mean, better ways of beating it. Our military was only barely able to kill it. What will it take next time?”

“I don’t know. I leave the fighting up to you. Although this whole situation has reminded me of one of my favorite myths about Atlantis.”

“The Lost City with lots of naval power?”

“Yes or it’s believed to have it. No one knows for sure due to it being a myth. Some people believe that myths are born from some truths and the beliefs of the people of the time, so it may seem like a lot of naval power but it could be just for that time period. Also, with myths, you get different variations and usually they all hold a single piece of truth but when you put them together, they can create a bigger picture.”

“Do you have a point? Not that I don’t enjoy your lectures, especially in a time of crisis.”

“Sorry. One of the myths about Atlantis talks about a protector for the city. Specifically, a protector that seemed out of time and out of place. Many scholars have theorized what this protector is.”

“It’s a myth. I truly doubt there is any truth in it.”

“Maybe yes. Maybe no. If I can show you definite proof of the existence of Atlantis and the possible protector, would you and the SGC be willing to send a team to investigate it?”

“Give me the details and I’ll let you know.”

“I’ll let you know when I have worked through the various tales and figured things out.”

-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-

Two hours later, Daniel heads to the end of the ramp, awaiting for Evan to appear. Jack had talked to Evan’s commanding officer via the gate to let him know about the death in Evan’s family. Jack knows that he needs to update everyone about the current affairs in the US but he and Hammond were still working out the specifics.

General Hammond did send out a memo about it and put SGC on high alert since they did not know if another monster will appear and where. General Hammond didn’t want his men and women underneath him to be surprised by the news about the monster and the deaths in San Francisco.

Hearing the gate engaged, Daniel broke away from his thoughts about the events that had happened today.

“Daniel. What are you doing here?” Evan asked with a slight hitch to his voice. Evan knows that it’s usually bad news when someone is waiting for you at the end of the ramp.

“Why don’t we go and see Janet?”

“What’s going on? I heard that something has happened to my parents.”

Daniel remained quiet, wanting to completely inform Evan in a more isolated location.

“Can we go and see Janet now? I’ll tell you soon.”

“It’s bad, isn’t it? They’re dead, aren’t they?” As Evan talked, tears started to stream down his cheek and his eyes were filling with tears. Daniel wrapped his arm around Evan’s shoulders and guided him out of the gate room, directing him to the infirmary.

The examination went fast and found nothing wrong. Once Evan was cleared, Daniel led him back to his room at the SGC and brought his laptop with him.

Once the door is closed, Daniel made sure that Evan was sitting down before going into his prepared speech about the attack in San Francisco.

“How? Where did that monster come from? Is it alien?”

“Unfortunately, it’s only been a few hours since the attack. The military, including the SGC, are trying to gather intel on where the monster came from and it’s origins. I would guess, by the appearance alone, that the monster is alien.”

“Fuck. You’re sure that my parents’ are dead?”

“Yes. Jack confirmed the details. One of his friends went to inform your sister. She is heading to San Francisco.”

“I need to get there and be there for her. I need to help with the funeral arrangements. Fuck.”

Daniel went over to Evan and pulled him into a hug. Evan resisted at first and then pulled Daniel tight against him as he cried hard on his shoulder. Daniel kept reassuring him that everything will be alright and he will be by his side, helping with anything that he needed done.

That day, they understood the true meaning of their friendship and that they would have each others’ back forever.

After taking a brief nap, Charlie joined Ian and his mother in the kitchen. They seemed to be catching up on the latest family gossip and the latest news in both of their lives. Charlie waits at the entrance, not wanting to intrude on their private time. Even though Ian might not say it, Charlie knows that Ian is very protective of his family, especially his mother.

Upon hearing Charlie fidget with his feet, Ian turned to say, “How was your nap?”

“It was heavenly. It’s a bit embarrassing with how much I’ve been sleeping lately.”

“Your body is defying science by trying to grow our child. I think you can give it a break in trying to regain it’s energy.” After a short pause, Ian continues to say, “Besides, your energy is going to a good cause.”
