After helping relocate the Taranans, Atlantis hasn’t heard from them in longer then usual. Wondering what happened to them Weir (Torri Higgenson) sends Sheppard (Joe Flanigan) and his team to go investigate their village. Once there it appears the Taranans just abandoned their village until Rodney McKay (David Hewlett) detects life signs well beneath the surface in the remnants of the previous village’s underground industrial complex.
Searching the dark winding corridors of the abandoned tunnels the team comes upon some sort of cocoon as well as a lab that appears to have been used for some sort of Wraith experiments. Discovering the bodies of several Taranans who appeared to have been fed on by the Iratus bug the team has little time to piece the puzzle together when they’re attacked by a large insect like monster. Their weapons useless against the creatures exoskeleton Ronon is barely able to fend it off by cutting off one of it’s arms. Radioing for backup the support team is only through the gate moments before a wraith dart scoops them up.
Back in the tunnels Teyla (Rachel Luttrell) becomes separated from the team and taken prisoner by the scientist who created the beasts, Michael (Connor Trinneer). He explains that after being treated as an outcast by his own people, unable to live as a wraith or a human, he decided to create an army of his own. Using what he learned from Dr. Beckett’s retro-virus and through experiments of his own he’s been able to build a super bug. Having used the entire Taranan village as food for his experiments he plans to use Teyla to the same end.
