Episode complete credited cast:


The team on Atlantis prepare for the worse when they track a Wraith hive ship headed their way. They're surprised to find the Wraith crew in stasis and a message from Todd telling them that Dr. Keller's retrovirus has had an unexpected side effect on them. To protect themselves, they've all entered stasis and returned to Atlantis hoping to get help. Some on the team think they should just leave them in statis and be done with them but a malfunction on the hive ship releases the remaining crew who have been cannibalizing one another for food.
