Klaus grins and balls his right hand into a fist, bringing it smashing down on the red button. "Zehr gut! Let's take zis show on ze road." There is a flash of light from the computer monitors, echoed by the actual light from the rings seeping through the tent flaps as the transport sequence occurs.
When the monitor returns to normal, the stark white has been replaced by verdant green. Tendrils of thick vines, cut by the action of the transport rings, dangle loose like so many ropes. The camera view slowly pans in a clockwise direction, giving a complete view of the jungle beyond. Squat cypress-like trees dominate the landscape, their many-forked branches holding up a solid canopy of creeping foliage that includes vines, moss, and leaves in nearly equal proportions. The tree roots penetrate the spongy ground in many places but do not appear to run deep, instead spreading out and wreathing with each other so as to give the forest floor a practically wooden appearance. There are also patches that appear to be algae-choked pools of water.
As the camera nears completion of its first pass, the sensors pick up strong traces of naquadah to the northwest of the MALP's position. While it was not immediately noticable from the visual sweep, the infrared sensors suggested the source was at a range of one hundred yards from the transport rings.
