  • Quotes (12)

    • (Sheppard looks down at Kavanagh lying on the floor.) Sheppard: Is he dead? Lee: Fainted. Sheppard: Figures.

    • Kavanagh: Honestly, if I knew the code, I would have given it to you by now. Wraith: That depends on the strength of your allegiance. Kavanagh: No-no-no, trust me! My allegiance is not that strong! Lee: It really isn't.

    • (about Mr. Coolidge) Teyla: I admit, the urge to inflict harm on this man was quite strong but I managed to refrain from doing so. Sheppard: Good call. Bad idea to run around beating the crap out of people with a baby on the way.

    • (talking about Teal'c) Sheppard: Look, the guy's got years of experience; he's like 100 years old or something. It won't kill you to listen to him. Be a good boy. (Sheppard walks away) Ronon: I hate you.

    • Sheppard: (after being in a Jumper for days) Thank god! I almost shot myself with a stunner! Ronon: I understand.

    • Nickolas Baric (Hester) previously played an SF Guard in the Stargate SG-1 episode "Urgo."

    • James Chutter (Wraith Scientist) previously played Babbis in the episode "The Return (1)."

    • This is Teal'c's first time on Atlantis. During the Stargate SG-1 Season 10 episode "The Pegasus Project", Teal'c stayed behind in the Milky Way to watch the Supergate while Sam Carter and Cameron Mitchell (Ben Browder) went with McKay to a black hole in the Pegasus Galaxy. Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks) and Vala Mal Doran (Claudia Black) remained on Atlantis, interacting largely with Elizabeth Weir (Torri Higginson) and Morgan La Fey (Sarah Strange).

    • At the beginning of this episode, during the "Previously On Stargate Atlantis" clips, a line was added in voice-over to the Intergalactic Gate Bridge explanation McKay gave to the crew of the Daedalus in the Season 3 episode "The Return Part 1". The line -- "The program is completely secure. No need for a Shield or an Iris." -- explains why no IDC was required for the Wraith to infiltrate Midway Station.

    • David Hewlett voiced the "previously on Stargate Atlantis" line.

    Trivia (9)

    • Nitpick: The Wraith in the Midway Station control room say "the Pegasus portal", despite "Pegasus" being the Earth-given name for that galaxy. Given that the Wraith have been in Pegasus for tens of thousands of years, you would think they would have come up with their own name for their galaxy at some point.

    • The planet in the Pegasus galaxy that the Wraith used to get hijack the McKay-Carter Intergalactic Gate Bridge was designated M4F-788. The planet Sheppard and McKay use to get to Midway is M6R-125.

    • This episode marks the first appearance of the Wraith Stun Bomb. The device is similar to the Goa'uld Shock Grenade.

    • The money that was exchanged between Chuck and Colonel John Sheppard was Canadian currency. It was actually several five dollar bills. In addition to Canadian currency and American five-dollar bills, Japanese Yen and Euros can also be seen in the sparring match, as the expedition is a multinational undertaking.

    • At the end of the episode when the Daedalus picked up the Puddle Jumper, everyone except Sheppard is sitting in back compartment. According to McKay he sealed himself in there. So if it was locked from the inside, how could McKay open that door with just pressing a button.
