The team locates a mobile geothermal drilling platform that may have the potential of providing them an unlimited power supply. Before going too far ahead, Dr. Weir wants to learn why the Ancients abandoned the project. On arrival, Teyla immediately begins to sense a Wraith presence on the platform. Her attempt to contact the Wraith doesn't quite go as planned however, and she is soon under a Wraith Queen's control.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Yes, well, the command codes used are quite simple like the number 1 or the letter A, like in Wraith, which would be ...

A dark and spooky wraith episode
28 February 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Submersion" aired tonight on the UK satellite channel Sky One, advertised as a "world premiere". Sky's been wrong in the past with such matters and there were already 22 votes for this episode here! A darkly spooky episode, "Submersion" starts with a humorous scene aboard a jumper showing us just why being in close proximity with Rodney McKay for a long period of time can be a trying experience.

When the crew start to investigate a mobile platform deep beneath the ocean, things turn deadly when an ancient wraith queen is awakened from her deep slumber.

An above average episode, "Submersion" is atmospheric and exciting, even if it is a tad predictable. As always, the humour is quality stuff and the one-liners are gems.

8 out of 10.
