Storyline

The Atlantis team is sightseeing on Hoffa, a planet with an advanced civilization. After a few days chancellor Druhin tells them they've been working for decades on a cure that will prevent the Wraith from feeding on them. In fact, the entire society is focused on this one goal. It is nearing completion, but they expect the Wraith aren't coming for at least fifty years. Major Sheppard hesitates to tell them they've awoken them early. Atlantis offers help to speed things up and Dr. Beckett starts helping Hoffan scientist Perna. With Beckett's help, both soon find a substance that might have success. Dr. Weir gives permission to test it on 'Steve', the very hungry captured Wraith prisoner. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

Just after the opening credits, the others discover that Dr. Beckett is uncomfortable with gate travel. To which, Sheppard replies that Dr. -Beckett is worse than Dr. McCoy. -Teyla: "Who?" -Sheppard: "The TV character that Dr. Beckett plays in real life." -Beckett: "Converting a human body into energy and sending it millions of light years through a wormhole..., Bloody insanity!" A clear salute to the original Star Trek's character of Dr. McCoy, and his series-long dislike of transporters. See more »
