Chapter 17: New Allies
When they got to the other side of the wormhole, the place they arrived at was empty. They had to walk through two rooms of a very large hallway to find a room that had something in it.
On one the doorways in that room had a type of cuneiform script. It was Brandon that had to use the Force to translate what it said.
Brandon read it out loud to Nomi, "Library of the Akkadians."
After reading it, Brandon had a puzzled look on his face. "That is very interesting. There is a period in Earth's history that had the same name, Akkadian."
Nomi replied, "It is up to us to read these books, and learn what we can from these Akkadians. These people might just be allies of the ancient Jedi since the ancient Jedi are from Earth."
When they walked into the library, they found out that it was very large with endless materials to read. Brandon said, "I think that we need to call the others over here. We will need help in reading all this."
Nomi said jokingly, "All we need is Daniel."
Brandon smiled at her, and they both went back to the Stargate to ask for help.
Nomi and Brandon entered the SGC. Mara stated, "That was quick."
Brandon told them what they found. "We need Daniel, and a few other Jedi in this library. The Library is humongous!"
Mara asked confusingly, "What library?"
Nomi told them that Brandon read a sign that stated, "Library of the Akkadians."
Brandon commented, "I think this time it was a simple coincident that we found this library so quickly."
Mara said, "It is not. It was you that read that writing. If it was not for you in reading it, you two would not have entered. How long it took you to find it is not the important thing. What is important is that you two found this library. After we came to your world, Luke and I have been reading a great deal on ancient history of Earth. I too am very interested in knowing about these Akkadians."
Master Vodo used the Force to establish a wormhole connection with the Stargate that was in the great city of the Jedi. As expected, there was no one there to greet him. He used the Force to find Sam and the others.
After a short walk Master Vodo finally came up to them.
Jack stated, "Don't tell me, Nomi and Brandon has found something important."
Master Vodo gave out a wide smile and said, "What else."
He told them about what they discovered.
Sam, Emily, and Ben gathered their belongings and went back to the SGC.
When they all arrived back, Master Vodo said, "I will stay here at the SGC until I am needed elsewhere. Please keep us informed on your progress."
Sam assured him that they would. If these Akkadians are friends of the ancient Jedi, then what we find in this library can be very helpful to us.
After Daniel gathered all the equipment that he would need, General Davis commanded, "Dial in the destination."
When all chevrons were dialed and the wormhole was established, everyone went through the Stargate. Hearing the Stargate dial on their end, Mara was the one that greeted them and walked them to the library.
When they all entered, Sam asked, "What have you three found out so far?
Nomi answered, "We have not found out that much, but we have confirmed that they are friends with the ancient Jedi, and something very interesting."
Nomi looked at Brandon to allow him to tell the new arrivals the news.
Brandon smiled and told everyone what they discovered. "These Akkadians are descendants of the Akkadians from Earth history."
Sam interrupted, "You said they are descendants. You mean these Akkadians are alive?
Brandon smiled, "Yes they are alive. They are not here on this planet, but yes they are alive."
Ben asked, "How do we reach these Akkadians?"
Brandon showed them the book that answered that question. The book also had information that they are powerful with the Light side of the Force.
Emily stated, "We will need them to help us fight the Emperor. I am sure that the Emperor is building an army that will out fight our forces since he knows all about Earth and its allies."
Brandon said, "That is why Nomi and I will be talking with them."
He looked at his Master, "I would like for you to go with us. You and I should stay together. Since Mara has found Sith Artifacts here, it would not be a smart idea for us to be separated."
Ben asked, "Can we go along with all of you?"
Sam answered, "Yes, you and Emily can go with us, but the rest of you need to stay here. The more that is doing research in this library the better."
Sam looked at Nomi and Brandon, "We better get going."
They said their farewells to everyone and went to the Stargate to meet these Akkadians.
Indeed the Emperor was building up a very gigantic army. This army was not simply a clone army as it was during the clone wars. This army was created by means of cellular mitosis by the Dark powers of the Force.
These creatures are a lot more powerful and obedient than the storm troopers were during the clone wars. The storm troopers were designed to take over the galaxy. This army is created for one thing, and one thing only, to completely and totally destroy all Jedi Knights.
By having the Jedi Knights removed completely, the Emperor will be able to not only take over the galaxy but the entire universe without any trouble whatsoever. The Asgards will not be able to stop the Emperor alone.
The Emperor said to Enki, "You have done well in creating those clones. Everyone on Earth even those Asgards thought that they destroyed you. They have done nothing but play right into my hands. By seeing them fight, I was able to know their strengths and weaknesses. Now I know how to destroy everyone on Earth, and completely destroy all the Jedi Knights."
Enki asked, "What about Jedi Master Nomi Sunrider and Master Jedi Brandon Bowers? Are they still a threat to our goals?"
The Emperor answered, "Yes those two Jedi are very powerful indeed. With Master Sam O'Neill, her husband, and those two young Jedi, it makes our plans harder. In fact, those Jedi could even destroy me."
Enki replied, "I thought that neither side of the Force could be destroyed."
The Emperor commented, "That is true, but they can destroy me by not allowing me to come out into this existence any more. It will take a great deal to do this, but it can be done. That is why I have been growing this grand army from the beginning."
"I have been doing this before the Clone Wars. I was planning to use this army on the Jedi without the use of the storm troopers, but I was not able to have enough for my plans to succeed. Now I will in a short time have the armies that I wanted to use in the first place. With the larger numbers in this army no one will be able to defeat me."
Enki asked, "How long will it take before anyone can find out about it?"
The Emperor just laughed. "Don't worry about them finding out. If anyone knew about this army, they would have done something about it a long time ago. Do not fear my friend. The only time they will know about this army is when I let them know about it. When that time comes, they will be fighting them. They will be defeated by them totally."
As the five Jedi and Dentralla went through the Stargate to have a conversation with the Akkadians, they found three people were waiting for them on the other side of the wormhole.
Master Jedi Brandon Bowers knew by the use of the Force that one was the leader, one was the Second in command, and the other was the leader of Akkadian military.
The leader of the Akkadians spoke, "Greetings Jedi. I am Sargon."
Sargon smiled and continued, "No I am not the Sargon the Great from Earth's past. The one on my left is my second in command. His name is Nar. My General of my armies is called Ram."
Brandon replied, "Thank you for your greeting us. I take it that you three are Jedi Knight since you were here waiting for us."
"All of the Akkadians are Jedi. It was by the Force that I knew all of you would come, Master Jedi Brandon Bowers."
Sam commented, "You must be very powerful with the Force to be able to know our names."
"We are very powerful with the Force, but it was not by the Force that we knew your names. Ever since the Jedi have been on Earth, we have been keeping a constant eye out on everything that has been going on with Earth. Since then we have been preparing a grand army to finally fight the Emperor and his grand army that he has been growing since the Clone Wars."
Sam went wide eyed in shock, "How could he have built this army without anyone knowing about it?"
"We have just found out about it ourselves a few months ago. The Emperor has used all the power of the Dark-side to keep it a secret. All we know is that it is a very large army that has been grown by cellular mitosis by the Dark powers of the Force. It will not be long for this army to be complete."
Nomi asked Sargon, "How long will your forces be ready to fight this grand army of the Emperor's?"
"We are ready now. It will be a little time for Earth to be ready. The Force has been strong with the Jedi on Earth, but the training is not yet complete."
Ben said, "When you are ready to go to Earth, my sister and I will represent you while these Jedi Masters work with your armies here.
Ram asked, "Will Master Vodo be on Earth?"
Nomi showed a puzzled look. "How do you know Master Vodo? We all came over 4,000 years in the past."
Ram smiled, "Nomi have you not forgotten that the ancient Jedi knows how to travel in time. The Jedi has taught the Akkadians how to travel in time by the use of the Stargate. We Akkadians have passed this knowledge through generations. Master Vodo and I are very good friends. I am surprised that he did not tell you about me."
Nomi said, "I guess he did not tell me because of he was concerned about the time line being in peril."
Nar busted out with laughter. "The so called "grandfather paradox" is not true. If going through time would change the events, then the Asgards would not have shown the Jedi how to travel in time to begin with."
Sam asked, "Can Emperor Palpatine go back in time and destroy all these ancient Jedi?"
Sargon answered, "The Emperor plans were not to destroy the Jedi of the past, but to destroy the machine that we call the Light-side of the Force. He would not succeed even if all the Jedi Knight has not interfered with his plans."
"If I can restate your question, 'can the Emperor go back in time and fulfill his plan?' The answer is no. Just the same he will do his very best after he destroys every Jedi Knight in this time. Even if he cannot destroy the Light-side of the Force, he can at least be content in having all the Jedi dead."
Brandon asked, "Since the ancient Jedi can travel in time, can they help us fight the Emperor now?"
Ram said, "Since the Emperor cannot change the past, neither can a Jedi go into the future to alter the course of history. History is history no matter what time it is in. What will be to us has been recorded by someone living in our future. To us it has not been written so fate does not apply to us, but just the same the ancient Jedi cannot help us."
Sargon saw that the arrivals were confused. "At times it is confusing to all of us. We just come to accept it, even if we do not fully understand it."
Emily finally said, "It makes perfect sense. Let's say that I will make a big mistake that I could have avoided if I was more careful. Having someone come to me, and correct me before I make that mistake will destroy my personal freedom. The reason for fighting the Emperor in the first place is to protect the privacy and freedom of all."
Sargon was amazed of this young Jedi's thinking, and what she said. "For what you have said here today, I hereby declare you and Ben are full Jedi Knights. I also declare that Jack O'Neill a full Jedi Knight. You three will now be called Master Jedi. Sam, I will let you tell Jack himself the great news."
"Before you two represent us Akkadians to your world, I would love for you six to be our dinner guest. There is one thing that I do not like to do is to go on a diplomatic meeting with an empty stomach."
"This dinner will be in the honor of you three becoming Master Jedi."
Brandon looked at his niece and nephew in silence with a very large smile on his face. When the two of them looked at their Uncle, they both gave him a full Jedi bow.
Emily said, "Even though Yoda and Jolinar enabled us to have the use of the Force, it was your training us that allowed us to be Master Jedi." The two of them gave their uncle a big hug, and their thanks.
The dinner was indeed celebrated in Master Jedi Emily and Master Jedi Ben Aaron's honor. Every Akkadian cheered for them both as well as for Jack which was not at the dinner celebration.
The celebration went on for hours. When it was finally over, the now five Master Jedi met at the Stargate with Sargon. Sam gave Emily and Ben a personal congratulation, and a big hug for each of them. Sam said to them both, "I am very happy to have been able to meet your uncle so this day could have been possible."
Nomi also gave her personal congratulations to the two new Master Jedi. Emily said to Nomi, "I cannot wait for you and my uncle to get married so that you can be an official part of our family. As far as I am concerned you are part of our family like Sam is to us."
Ben completely agreed on what his sister has just said. The three of them departed through the Stargate to the SGC on Earth.
Now that Nar is in command, his first duty was to give rooms to the remaining guest. "Please let me give you the best VIP rooms that we have to offer.
Sam replied to his offer, "That would be great. We will need the rest. I am sure that we will be very busy tomorrow."
Nar commented, "There is a great deal to show and tell you. When this battle with the Emperor's new army does arrive, it will be a very hard and nasty battle. Like Sargon said, 'we have been watching you all very closely.' We also believe that Master Jedi Nomi Sunrider and Master Jedi Brandon Bowers have the biggest part in defeating the Emperor."
Nar then looked at Nomi and Brandon and continued, "Even though I will show and tell you all, you are not to be a part of the major battle. Your jobs will be to confront the Emperor himself, and destroy him directly. Master Jedi Emily and Ben Aaron as well as Master Sam and Jack O'Neill will accompany you, but it will be up to you two only to confront the Emperor."
Brandon replied, "It is settled. The four of them will be guarding our backs while Nomi and I take down the Emperor."
Sam nodded in agreement.
When Master Emily and Ben Aaron arrived with Sargon, they were greeted by Christi and Chip. Emily and Ben gave their parents a hug.
Ben announced Master Sargon to everyone. After everyone knew that Sargon was a Jedi, it was Sargon that announced the new titles for Emily and Ben as well as for Jack O'Neill. He also told them what Emily has said right before they became Master Jedi Knights. Everyone was ever so happy for the three of them.
Right then Master Vodo walked in on them. When he saw Sargon, Master Vodo said, "I thought I smelled a smelly Akkadian in this place."
Master Vodo smiled and greeted his Akkadian friend warmly. After the pleasantries between them it was Sargon that grumbled. He asked, "Vodo you old goat. Why did you not tell Nomi Sunrider that we were there in your time on Ambria? You know that the time line cannot be changed by anyone."
Master Vodo answered, "At that time we simply did not know Nomi Sunrider. Neither Master Thon nor myself did not think of mentioning it to her."
Sargon replied, "I guess that excuse will have to do, but you are still and old goat." They both laughed.
Before they all departed Sargon introduced Emily and Ben as Master Jedi. Master Vodo congratulated them both.
Ben said, "Please do not tell Jack. Sam wants to do it herself. They should be arriving here shortly with the Akkadian army."
General Davis said, "We will have this place ready for them when they arrive. I got Jack back to the City of the Jedi. I will make sure that he stays there until Sam and the others come back. In fact it is about time for SG3 team to be sent over there. If Master Vodo could do the honor in using the Force to enable the SG3 team to go there, I will have the SG3 team keep Jack too busy for him to even think about coming to the SGC."
When the SG3 team arrived, General Davis gave them additional orders in dealing with Jack. After that, Master Vodo sent them to their destination.
When the SG3 team arrived, they did not tell anyone about Emily and Ben's promotion. They did not want Jack to find out about it. They had to keep it a secret even from the family of Emily and Ben.
When the leader of the SG3 team found Jack, Jack was starting to get bored. Colonel James Wade saw this, and used his tack to get Jack into doing something.
Even though Jack has been retired from service for several years, he will always be a military officer. Jack knew that he was a Jedi and always will be, but his first love is the military, especially the Air Force.
When Colonel Wade offered him a chance to be a part of the Air Force once again, he took it with open arms. Colonel Wade got Jack to be in charge of the entire security over the Jedi city. Jack had coordinated this type of thing all the time when he was a Colonel with the SGC. Jack asked Colonel Wade for a report from every unit of the security team.
While Jack has been kept busy, Master Sargon wanted to talk with the people of Earth about what the Akkadians have found out about the Emperor's army, and what they are doing about it.
After hearing Master Jedi Sargon tell his story to everyone at the SGC, General Davis immediately took his comlink out, and tried to contact Princess Leia. When she replied on her end, General Davis told everything that Master Jedi Sargon said. He also told her about the promotions of Emily, Ben, and Jack.
Leia said, "I will be there at the SGC as quickly as I can, so I can congratulate those two. I take it that Sam is going to tell Jack this herself?"
General Davis replied, "Yes she does. I got him busy in dealing with the security of the Jedi city."
Before turning off her comlink she said, "I will contact the President myself on this matter. It's about time I contact him anyhow. I will see you all then."
General Davis asked Master Sargon, "How big is your army at this time?"
Sargon answered, "It is nearly 7,000 troops that are all Jedi Knights. In fact all Akkadians are Jedi Knights. We are more than ready to fight this army that the Emperor has been developing. With the help of the Asgards, Jedi Knights here on Earth, and everyone else, we will defeat this army. Let it be known, it will be a bloody fight. From what us Akkadians has found out about this army of the Emperor, they are designed to fight the Jedi. This means they will fight hard and to the death."
General Davis replied, "So will we. We fought hard with these Goa'uld before, and we can fight hard with anything that the Emperor throws at us. The Jedi Knights has done so much for Earth already. Everyone on Earth will not do anything less. We owe them our lives. If this army takes more than half of the population of Earth with them during this battle, we will continue to fight until this army of the Emperor's is no more. Life has been going on this planet for a great many years. I strongly believe that life will thrive many more years to come."
It was morning on the planet, Maram-Sin, where Sam, Dentralla, Nomi, and Brandon were on. They got cleaned up, dressed with clean clothes that Nar provided for them. They met Nar where he said he would be.
Nar smiled at them and asked, "Did you all sleep well?
Nomi smiled, "Yes we did, thank you."
"Let me give you a tour of the place and our military forces. As they were walking, Nar talked with them about all they have found out about the Emperor's army, and what they have been planning for it.
Sam replied, "Earth is ready to fight this army with your help. Do you know if the Emperor knows about your plans and army?"
"We too have been shielding our plans. Even though we saw through the Emperor's security blanket over his army, we do not think that the Emperor even knows that we exist less alone our giant army. You did not even know about us until Nomi and Brandon found out we existed."
Brandon said, "Talking about that library, why were Nomi and I were able to find the library with no time at all, and Mara Jade Skywalker and her team did not know it existed?"
"The Jedi library is for Jedi only."
Sam asked, "Then Daniel is a Jedi?"
Nar smiled, "Yes and no. He has the gift of finding information with great skills and performance. If it was not for Doctor Daniel Jackson, none of you Jedi will be able to be here with us. I cannot state that if Daniel is this Archaeologist Jedi that all of you have called him, but if that is the case, then I can say that he is an Archaeologist Jedi."
Nomi asked, "What information will the others find at your Jedi library?"
Nar answered her with great enthusiasm. They have and will find a great deal about the ancient Jedi. Our library has the most important knowledge of the ancient Jedi. That is why we think that the Emperor does not know that we exist. If he knew about that library, the Jedi of today will be in more danger than they are in now."
"To continue to answer your question Master Jedi Brandon, Mara Jade Skywalker was a Jedi, but the others were not. When you and Master Jedi Nomi came through the Stargate to the same location, we did not hide the library from you. We simply used the Force to guide you to the library."
"We knew that it was time for us to reveal ourselves to Earth and all the Jedi. Since we are ready militarily, all of us can now plan our final steps in destroying the Emperor once and for all."
Sam commented, "From what you have told us about Enki's cloning during that battle Earth and the Asgards had with them, Jack will not be happy about it."
Nar replied, "Neither were we when we found out about it. Maybe this time Jack himself will eliminate Enki."
Sam smiled, "That would make him very happy. I would not mind watching it myself. When we were the SG1, we had major problems with him when he was Apophis. It would be great to see him down for good."
Nar continued with the tour, and gave more information about the Akkadian's strategies in dealing with the Emperor's army with fewer casualties. Nar even told them about the history of the ancient Jedi that the others have learned from the library. This information was indeed very important.
There are other things that are waiting to be found by our six Jedi. Before they can do this they must use all their power of the Force to finally defeat the Emperor or all will be lost including the Jedi's past.
