Atlantis is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the lone hive ship heading for the city. The Athosians have been relocated to the cloaked city and the Daedalus and the Orion are ready to assist if necessary. Weir hopes the ship is just checking and the cloak's still sufficient, but there seems to be no hiding. The Wraith transmit an audio signal. It's a message from Michael and he tells they mean no harm. In fact they are here to negotiate a treaty. Since the awakening of all Wraith there's a famine and civil war has broken out. Michael wants Atlantis to work with them in weaponizing the retrovirus, which they will use to attack other Wraith factions to use them as a food source. In return they will not tell anyone Atlantis still exists and enlighten them on every aspect of Wraith technology. Written by
