NO MAN’S LAND
Guest Stars: Beau Bridges, Robert Picardo, Connor Trinneer, Mitch Pileggi
After their temporary alliance with the Wraith backfires, the Atlantis team must find a way to stop two Wraith hive ships that are headed for Earth. Weir (Torri Higginson) orders Colonel Caldwell (Mitch Pileggi) to attack the hive ships using the Daedalus and the Orion before she is ordered to return to Earth to account for her team’s failures.
Sheppherd (Joe Flanigan), who was able to survive by latching his F-302 to the hull of a Wraith ship, is forced to rely on a now ostracized Michael (Connor Trinneer) to help him save McKay (David Hewlett) and Ronon (Jason Momoa), who are being held prisoner by the Wraith. Ronon and McKay are able to free themselves from their cocoon prisons with a plan to sabotage the ship in a last act of heroism.
All plans collide as the Daedalus and Orion engage the hive ships while Sheppard, McKay and Ronon are still aboard.
Guest Stars: Robert Picardo, Connor Trinneer
Having successfully used the Wraith retrovirus to turn an entire hive ship of Wraith into humans, the team returns to Atlantis with their prisoners in stasis. Meanwhile, Weir (Torri Higginson) continues to defend her leadership in the face of an independent review being conducted by I.O.A. member Richard Woolsey (Robert Picardo).
Examining the hive ship that the team hijacked in an attempt to restore it to full working condition, McKay (David Hewlett) determines that the Wraith prisoners cannot continue to be held in stasis indefinitely. The team decides the best thing to do is to set them free on a planet under the guise that they were exposed to a viral outbreak.
Sheppard (Joe Flanigan) and Dr. Beckett (Paul McGillion) remain on the planet to manage the human-form Wraith, including a re-humanized Michael (Connor Trinneer). But when they discover a Wraith ship approaching the planet, the team must act fast to keep the existence of Atlantis a secret.
