A Wraith hive ship jumps out of hyperspace and approaches Atlantis – but it’s under the control of Colonel Caldwell and Colonel Sheppard, who have used Dr. Beckett’s retrovirus to revert the ship’s Wraith to a human state. They’re settled on a planet without a gate, but Beckett insists on staying with them to ensure that they’re healthy. Michael is also given a new dose of the retrovirus, reverting him to his fully human form and robbing him of his memory again. In the meantime, Dr. Weir is returned to Atlantis with the IOA’s Woolsey in tow, still investigating her command and looking for any reason to relieve her of it. When he learns that Weir’s crew has effectively created a new species, Woolsey may have found the reason he’s looking for. But as Beckett discovers, the reverted Wraith aren’t going to stay human for long.
