Sheppard and Beckett battle zombie-like, wraith-engineered mutants with a team of the best and brightest female SG members. They also happen to be gorgeous - the SG team, not the mutants.

After an an off-world team led by Maj. Anne Teldy finds what appears to be one of Michael's abandoned laboratories, Sheppard and Dr. Beckett travel to the planet to see for themselves. It's not obvious why the lab has been abandoned since the information in the computer system seems to indicate that Michael's experiments had been successful. The village is empty and they have no idea what may have happened to the residents - until they find 12 empty pods and have to assume there are a dozen human-Wraith hybrids now roaming the area. Just as they think they've gained the upper hand however, they discover something in a hidden room. Written by garykmcd

The one where things turn rather creepy...

'Whispers'~ Season five, episode seven

In what has to be one of the most creepiest episodes seen in mainstream science-fiction, we see Sheppard and Beckett joining an all-female SG team to investigate a seemingly desolate planet where they believe Michael has been conducting his experiments from within an underground chamber that tunnels to an abandoned village.

This episode introduces Major Anne Teldy and her team of 'the best' (who, she tells a stunned Beckett and Sheppard, were hand-picked because she knows women are the best) and they are depicted to be interesting, well-fleshed out characters who give our two guys a run for their money. It's a shame the show ended as it did as it would have been great to see Teldy's team again. I would have loved to have seen McKay and the gung-ho Sergeant Mehra interact! Light-hearted moments aside, there are many scenes in 'Whispers' which are genuinely chilling and this is certainly one episode not aimed at young fans of the show. It is an episode that veers more towards horror than sci-fi but it's handled well and the grim atmosphere does succeed in helping the audience to empathise with the characters' terror.
