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. Weir and the team soon learn that the Wraith Queen has been waiting for millenia for a means to escape the ocean's depths and return to her people....and will stop at nothing to accomplish that.

Did You Know?


Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Hey, that took too long.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Yeah, well, I probably won't be able to disarm the self-destruct in time anyway, so we're really not in a rush.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Why don't we find it first, and *then* you can be negative?
Dr. Rodney McKay: The ship is remarkably preserved.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: You'd think after ten thousand years, she'd want to redecorate.
Dr. Rodney McKay: I'm serious. The hull damage is minimal. They probably just lost their main drive.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: You're saying this thing is salvageable?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Hmm, I'd have to assess damage to primary systems but it's not completely out of...

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.
