The three Wraith hive ships detected on a direct course for Atlantis will meet only one obstacle before they reach the planet – a defense satellite built by the Ancients as Atlantis’ last line of defense. The good news is that the satellite is still intact, but the bad news is that its systems are completely dormant – and Dr. McKay is given mere hours to solve that problem. Meanwhile, Sheppard still holds Teyla in suspicion, worried that any preparations in her presence could be providing the Wraith with intelligence via her recently discovered telepathic connection to them, and Sheppard isn’t the only one who suspects her. Dr. Weir is equally worried that the Wraith intend to invade Earth’s galaxy via the stargate, and orders her team to look for an alpha site to which the crew can be evacuated so the city can be destroyed as a last defense. But it’s impossible to keep the Wraith out of Atlantis…because they’re already there.
