Stargate AtlantisA routine visit to a planet through the stagate is cut short when, instead of being open to trade, the locals call Ronon Dex a “Wraithbringer” and attack Sheppard’s party. McKay takes an arrow through the leg but still manages to return to Atlantis through the gate, but the others are hit by tranquilizer darts and taken captive. Apparently, Ronon has been here before, when he still had the runner implant that allowed the Wraith to track him; when the locals took him in on that occasion, the Wraith laid waste to their village in their hunt for him. The leader of the village, who lost his daughter in that attack, was given a homing device by the Wraith in the event their prey has returned, and he has already called them to retrieve Ronon. Ronon responds to this by threatening to kill himself before the Wraith arrive, unless the villagers release Sheppard and Teyla and let them return to Atlantis. By the time Sheppard can return with a full strike team, the village has been razed once more, and Ronon has been abducted. The Wraith implant another tracking device in Ronon, return him to his homeworld of Sateda, and begin the hunt again. But Ronon proves to be hard to kill – and when Sheppard tries to pull him out before he has settled his scores with the Wraith, Ronon can be even harder to rescue.
