The first story details on “Tracker” have arrived at GateWorld! The episode is part of the upcoming fifth season of Stargate Atlantis, which is expected to begin airing this July in the United States.
Ronon, McKay, and Dr. Keller visit a world where the Wraith have recently arrived. The reason soon becomes clear: they are pursuing a Runner, a warrior who has been tagged with a homing device so that the Wraith can hunt him for sport. Before joining the Atlantis team, Ronon himself was just such a prey (“Runner”).
The Runner’s name is Kiryk, and he captures Dr. Keller. Jennifer tries to reason with him as he marches her through the woods and away from the team. Kiryk is surprised to learn that she not only knows what a Runner is, but she also claims that Ronon used to be one — but isn’t any more.
Keller’s absence is only one problem, though. With help from a man named Erran, Ronon and McKay evacuate a village to the nearby caves, to try and keep the people safe.
Soon Kiryk’s purpose for kidnapping the doctor is revealed, as they arrive at his destination: he has a companion, a 10-year-old girl who is in desperate need of medical attention.
Guest characters include Kiryk, Erran, Celise (the injured girl), and a group of villagers.
“Tracker” is expected to air as the eighth episode of Season Five. Learn more in GateWorld’s episode guide!
