The Daedalus comes just in time to save Sheppard from his suicide run against the Wraith hive ship, and manages to destroy the remaining hive ship. With the ZPM in Atlantis, they manage to activate the shields intime for a kamakazi attack by the Wraith darts. However, the rejoicing ends when they find 12 more hive ships are on their way, and in an attempt to destroy them, the Daedalus is badly damaged, but not before taking out 2 of the hive ships. With 10 more hive ships on their way, the team must find a way to defeat them so that they do not send more ships.
 General Notes
- The Wraith from this episode forward, believe that Atlantis has been destroyed, and the humans from Earth with it
|Weir and McKay are Whispering|
McKay: I don't think they've detected us.
Weir: Why are you whispering?
McKay: I dunno - it just seems like the right thing to do.
|Weir: Rodney - you can take the rest of the day off.|
Rodney slumps with exhaustion, gets down onto the floor and lies on his back with his eyes closed and his hands folded on his chest
McKay: Oh. I am gonna curl up in bed with the largest sandwich I can find.
Teyla: Shall I just explain to the rest of the Wraith left on the base that you are unavailable to fight?
|McKay: OK! That's just fine! (He draws his pistol and points it at them, grinning in bravado.) You want some of this, huh?! Huh?!|
As he goes to fire his pistol, he presses the wrong part of the gun and the cartridge ejects and drops to the floor. Rodney stares in horror, then dives for cover as he yells into his mike
McKay: This is McKay - I'm in trouble down here!
|Weir: OK, what are our options?|
McKay: Well, let me see - we've got slow death, quick death, painful death, cold, lonely death.
|Caldwell: Can we submerge the city again?|
McKay: It's a city, not a yo-yo.
|McKay: Whoa, whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa. What is this? This is my security escort?!|
Weir: Well, we *are* spread a little bit thin right now.
McKay: OK. (To the marines) You need to know that if we come under fire, you're gonna have to put your lives on the line to protect me.
McKay: OK, I mean the ZedPM. You need to protect the ZedPM at all costs ... and me. Am I wrong?
|Weir: How much time do you need?|
Zelenka: A week
McKay: A couple of hours.........A week? What, are you in a union?
