McKay finds a system that tracked the location of all Ancient ships. The monitor indicates there's still one left, the warship Aurora. The Daedalus is sent to investigate, and shoots down a Wraith scout ship nearby. The Aurora looks heavily damaged and there's no life support. The entire crew has been in stasis pods for 10.000 years, too long to revive them. McKay discovers they are all connected in a virtual reality network. Sheppard joins them and finds out the ship is carrying an important communique that mentions a weakness in Wraith technology. He tries to retrieve it from their captain, but access to him is constantly denied by a woman. While two Wraith cruisers approach the Daedalus, Teyla and Ronon find a Wraith that entered the network in one of the pods. Written by Arnoud Tiele (
