The Gift

Stargate AtlantisTeyla awakens from a terrifying dream about a Wraith infiltrating Atlantis and killing Sheppard. The rest of the Atlantis team is still trying to find a defense against the approaching Wraith hive ships before they arrive, and a new control chair is found that could allow the crew to protect the city more effectively. Teyla uncovers another possible avenue, however – the discovery of a Wraith log device reveals that some of Teyla’s people, including Teyla herself, have a small amount of Wraith DNA. Those with this rare “gift” can sometimes hear voices, and Beckett theorizes that perhaps the ability includes a fleeting telepathic link with the Wraith. Teyla agrees to be subjected to an experiment to see if she can tap into the Wraith – but if the link goes both ways, she may become a deadly liability.
