I had a dream that I was part of an Startgate team that was part of a program to investigate the mirror device that leads to other universes much like the actual sg program. I was the scientific and tactical advisor of a group of 8 people both millitary and scientific. The mirror teams mission is to find a world where our civilisation was pretty much on par with the ancients. Just so we can steal info bout it. So every time it seems futuristic, we head out, and we did! my teams latest mission was to an earth where instead of a mountain base we seemed to have found an futuristic mall in the style of 60's pop / late 90's apple macintosh style.
We where studying the complex and found it to be pretty typical of earths tech but more advanced in some ways. Everything seemed to be closed for the night. The whole thing seemed empty, It was fully white lots of lifts and every edge and window was rounded and had a line of a different colour, there where stuff in the stores and it seemed early morning, So after checking for any exits, and finding everything welded shut we tried to shoot our way out, which had no effect on the glass, which looked to be bullet-absorbent. Then I climbed a couple of stairs to the rooftop and managed to get outside. Turns out it seemed the place was in a giant woodland of some kind, no parking lot either. Then I noticed something weird. There where shady people with guns leading civilians in to the mall with a special kind of stairs so they only can get go in.
So I hurry down to my team mates to confirm my finding of an exit and an hostile force within the area (why didn't I just walky-talky?) I saw these same people come down with the lifts and escalator. My team mates seemed to respond slowly. Then the place seemed to come alive. Music started playing the closed stores started to open, Revealing all kinds of toys and candy, Not only that but a weird smelling substance was released too, Combined with the creepy happy music the place started to become even more surreal. My officer in command dropped his rifle and started acting like he was a kid on a sugar high. So did my other team-mates. And the people who came in changed from terrified to happy in the instant the doors closed behind them.
For some reason I had at least a delayed reaction, So I started to try and reason with them but they started a jelly bean war and almost every one in it started too, except one young lady, a brunette asian girl who instead of happy looked absolutely terrified. I ran to her and dragged her to the roof for questioning. She acted like I was in on it and that I knew what was going on but once My head cleared I to her about SGC and she seemed to recognize the terms I used but didn't trust me. So I asked her, her story and she told me I should already know who she is. I said 'humour me' She then explained about how she and her family are a political family opposing a dictator who grabbed full control over the planet's nations with a combination of Hitlers tactics and 1984. They where political prisoners who have been sentenced to death by happiness on grounds of high treason. The whole complex was built to keep people occupied while the gas that keeps them at bay slowly kills them. After the last person dies the soldiers come in to clean the complex and start again. Then I got worried but she tells me that if we find a way to turn off the gas and get the people on and off the roof by the end of the week they'll be safe. Then I looked at her and asked why she wasn't effected, She told me her father was secretly working on a mass-produced antidote to counter the gas that makes people happy. Which was originally meant as a way to sedate people. But they where arrested before they got the antidote mass-produced and spread across the population through food. She took it in the hope to find a way to escape before they all die.
There are no guards because they assumed we'd be to occupied to escape, and we are to far from anything for people to start a rescue mission. Many died this way. I told her to hang tight while I get the people upstairs. She noted I seemed immune but might really just have a delayed reaction to the effects of the gas. I agreed and I had to come up with a plan but I had to get to my team-mates backpacks first.
I give the woman my rifle and headed down the stairs and I still heard the music doing on, I noticed that one of my team-mates had taken his clothes off and was running around naked. So I took his bag AFTER filming it. And I used an asgardian scanner of sorts to scan where the gas was coming from, which seemed to be little holes pretty much every where. I knew I didn't have much time because I felt light headed again. So I took a gas mask out of my friends bag and put it on. Then I chased him and knocked him out with his own rifle. After dressing him I dragged him upstairs to the roof. The lady started bickering with me that it would go faster if she helped. But I told her that we have a week and I'd rather have her on guard in case there are guards doing occasional sweeps of the complex. Now that I had a gas mask, some putty and some rope tactically I have a better chance of getting people out in one gone alone then we had together with no such things. So took out one of those explosives my military friend had and began to cut the clay that keeps it stuck to walls. I rand down the stairs covering each corner with the clay till I had a gas free path from where most of the civilians are to the mirror and to the stairs.
Then I started finding out where the music came from and started shooting the speakers. Simply because they annoyed me. It took me a while but I got our bag and my team-mate from upstairs seemed to have gained his senses. I gave him his rifle and told him to preserve his energy. I'll Get a large group of civilians roped up and ready to go upstairs.
So I ran down and found where they still all where with the jelly beans. I managed to rope up some of the people but its clear I needed to get my team-mates first, tough I had enough time because no one was stopping me. After 3 days of getting people up with the help of my team-mate we finally found the other team-mates stuck between two mountains of toys apparently Two (who we knew had a relationship) where kissing each other. We knocked the guys out and dragged them up. I got them all out and after the 5th day when everybody started acting normal and our food supplies started to run out. My superior asked me if there where weak points that I noticed that might be blown up by c4 or goa'uld energy weapons. The windows where sturdy but the walls seemed to be made off normal concrete just layered so the gas would not escape the building. Apparently they also assumed no one would try to blow themselves out. He asked my why I didn't do that in the first place and I told him that it was tactically a mistake to do, Since I didn't really know if the enemy forces would be around to investigate the noise and even when the team was intact I deduced we would be outmatched, so the smartest thing to do was to get people out first. We hatched a plan and decided to destroy the wall nearest to the quantum mirror and We did so. My superior told the politicians to keep to the mirror while we reconned and got extra support from SGC. I and two of my team-mates where told to stay behind in case of an hostile presence.
A few hours after my superior left back to SGC to recon back to whom I assume is general O'neil it started to get dark and I and the lady started talking again. I told her we could easily escape but its not what we came to do here. So I asked her how far the technology of her earth is, Medical, Architectural, just general space trips. She told us they where heading towards finding out inter planetary space travel and managed to get to mars a few years back, but the dictatorship was hold on it back. They also found a stargate which only the elite families know about and the quantum mirror was intact found first including the atlantean weapon and a damage shield generator where the windows are loosely based on. The stargate and quantum mirror are still a mystery in this universe. They are kept in these places because even if they could use it no one could get to them and would die laughing before being able to use them.
I told her how far our earth is and that our other mission is to destroy any opposing force which we might come across on our missions. This includes radical earth governments. And that they are taking long but we got a spaceship which can successfully hop dimensions which is way beyond what they can do in power and retaliation. I trade for any tech they would be saved and handed over the beginnings of SGC so they can mount their own missions, safely. All the politicians agreed and gave us the permission to open a full threat to that current world order.
Just then I got a call that the Daedalus just entered orbit around this new earth and that they where awaiting my orders. I told them the situation and told them where the enemy was just as we where getting surrounded, my team came back just in time to help us shoot the enemies and then I woke up... Just another normal dream lol
