Sheppard, Teyla, Ford and McKay are on a routine survey mission aboard one of Atlantis’ jumpers, when an attack group of Wraith Darts finds and pursues them. But just when they think they’re about to be destroyed, a blinding burst of energy emanates from a nearby planet, destroying the Darts – and leaving the jumper untouched. Sheppard decides that this force merits investigation (and the jumper needs repairs), but on the planet, they find only a primitive, spiritual people who know nothing of the Wraith or the weapon that destroyed them, to say nothing of the technology that could have built such a weapon. Sheppard’s pleas to relocate refugees to this world falls on deaf ears, so he invites the high priestess to tour Atlantis for herself. McKay, on the other hand, is suspicious of the people of Proculus, and believes they’re more advanced than they appear to be – and when she touches a console and activates it, revealing she has the Ancient gene, it only intensifies his suspicion.
