After the explosion of Michael's medical compound, which caved in, trapping the Atlantis team and the marines, Colonel Samantha Carter sends a rescue party along with a medical team and the combat engineers, as well as a new addition to the Atlantis team, Captain Alicia Vega. As the rescue starts, it appears that the team has been split into the two surviving groups of Ronan and Lt. Colonel Sheppard, and McKay and Major Lorne. When McKay finds Michael's hard drive, it contains a lot of data about his operations. Suddenly, McKay realizes that, when the compound self destructed, it sent out a subspace message that alerted Michael of their presence. With the Daedalus now in orbit, Michael appears and they engage into combat. As the battle progresses, they realize that Teyla could be aboard and they decide to mount a rescue mission to retrieve her. When they're aboard, it appears that Teyla is nearing birth and they'll have no chance of retrieving her in time.

Caldwell says they cant beam through shields, and they'd have to lower them to beam up Sheppard and allow the jumps in. But its been shown in the series that small craft can pass through the shields, and beaming onto a ship can be done through shield, even under stress (see SG-1 Crusade). Its stated in SG-1 that they re-modulate the shields to allow this, but it wont work onto enemy ships unless they know the modulation. See more
