Sheppard and his team are lured to a planet and are soon put on trial for crimes against the people of the Pegasus galaxy. In flashbacks, the three judge tribunal recounts the indictment against them including the re-awakening of the Wraith and the various missions where at least a few, if not more, innocent bystanders were killed. Sheppard does his best to argue that on balance, fewer were killed by their presence than would have been the case if they had never been there. A least one of the judges is clearly determined to find them guilty while a second seems far more sympathetic. It's left to Richard Woolsey, who has now joined them, to plead the rest of their case. A lawyer by profession, Richard clearly knows how the game is played and focuses on that third judge. Written by

At the end of the episode Woolsey and Sheppard are smoking cigars and drinking scotch on the balcony, a classic scene from Boston Legal
(2004) where, at the end of each episode, Denny Crane and Alan Shaw are smoking cigars and drinking scotch. See more

You gonna tell me how you managed to pull this one off?
Well, I'd say it was a combination of things. My legal skills, my eloquence, the indisputable logic of my arguments... and the bribe I offered Kelore.
