Following a signal they believe was sent by Ladon, the Genii scientist who led an overthrow of his warlike government, Sheppard and his team are ambushed. He finds that Kolya, the leader of that overthrown regime, is his captor. Kolya demands that Ladon be handed over to him, or else he’ll unleash another of his prisoners – a captured Wraith – to feed on Sheppard. He even broadcasts a brief and torturous demonstration of his threat to Atlantis. Weir and Ladon begin to plan a rescue mission, while Sheppard tries to appeal to the only person who can possibly understand his plight – the Wraith prisoner. Together they manage to escape from Kolya’s prison, though Sheppard is already weakened from several brief feeding sessions. Even with help coming from Atlantis, can Sheppard expect to live long enough to be rescued when his life depends on a Wraith?
