After ferrying Atlantis’ senior staff to Earth for a briefing, the Daedalus is en route back to Atlantis when a suspicious accident leaves one of the crew dead. Concerned about possible Wraith retaliation, Colonel Caldwell – the Daedalus’ commander, still chafing over being passed over for Atlantis’ military commander position in favor of the newly-promoted Lt. Colonel Sheppard – orders the ship to stay in hyperspace. But other deadly accidents continue to happen, and it seems that even hyperspace isn’t safe for the Daedalus. And in any event, the Wraith don’t need to attack the Daedalus directly – they’ve already managed to infect its vital systems from a distance.
