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 garykmcd

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 »


Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: You gonna tell me how you managed to pull this one off?
Richard Woolsey: 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.

10 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The reason for those episodes that many call "Filler" are not actually filler, they are reminders. Usually they are placed a point in the series right before a large plot change comes about, and it is there to remind us of everything that has happened. These episodes are very useful to viewers who only watch each episode once, but for those fanatics who watch every episode countless times, it can be rather annoying. So to the community that thinks this show is being put out of its misery, I ask you to think long and hard, and consider that perhaps this show is being ended too soon. The writers may have had more in store for the viewers then what we could possibly know. I find it to be a huge error of Sci-Fi to end it's two most popular series' prematurely within two years of each other. Talk about a ratings dip.......
