Sheppard and Lorne lead an investigation on a Wraith hive ship that is infected with something that causes its walls to melt away. Meanwhile, Keller must come up with a medical solution to a Wraith physiological problem.
Sheppard, Lorne, Lt. Williams (one of Lorne’s men), and Marines are aboard a Wraith hive ship. They are spread out, but in radio contact. With orders to report “anything unusual”, Lt. Williams immediately radios Lorne as soon as he sees a wall “melting”. As he approaches the wall to get a closer look, he is grabbed by a Wraith drone who isn’t wearing the normal bony mask. The Wraith drags Williams off, leaving his unfired weapon behind.
When Williams fails to continue his report, Lorne, Sheppard, and a Marine look for him at his last location, but only find his weapon. Lorne asks if this is cause for reinforcements to be sent from Atlantis.
Meanwhile, Keller is faced with working with Wraith physiology and “having the fate of the galaxy hang in the balance.” She is being encouraged by McKay, who manages to get her to smile. He even takes her hand in a gesture of encouragement.
