Summaries

  • The IOA is conducting interviews back on Earth to ensure that any personnel serving on Atlantis (in particular, aliens) are suitable for their roles. The episode opens up with a pregnant Teyla having been interviewed and reporting back to Atlantis. Ronon is next. Col. Carter is unsure about Ronon's ability to handle the IOA's interview and therefore asks Teal'c to come to Atlantis in a coaching capacity for Ronon. After a rocky start to their relationship, Ronon and Teal'c return to Earth, via the series of Stargates and a Midway Station, that McKay had previously designed. The Midway Station between the Milky Way and Pegasus galaxies serves primarily as a place for those traveling between the galaxies to serve a 24 hour quarantine. While Teal'c and Ronon are serving their quarantine in the extremely cramped Midway Station, it is boarded by the Wraith, via the Stargate, with the intention to travel to Stargate Command on Earth. They achieve this objective, but only with Teal'c and Ronon in tow. What ensues is a battle between the Wraith and the duo of Teal'c and Ronon, for control of Stargate Command.

  • All members of the Atlantis expedition are being interviewed by the IOA and while most have had no difficulty, Col. Carter is worried about how Ronon, who is prone to losing his temper, will deal with it all. She asks her old friend Teal'c to coach his fellow warrior but they seem more interested in fighting each other. They use the gate to travel to the midway station where they must stay in quarantine for 24 hours before continuing on to Earth. The Wraith however have located the Inter-Galactic Bridge and find their own way to gain access to the station and attack Star Gate Command. With most of the personnel unconscious and the Wraith on Earth, it seems that Ronon and Teal'c are the only ones standing in between the Wraith and a full-scale invasion.
