  • Sheppard and his team are summoned to a planet to meet with a mysterious ally. It's a trap and Lt. Ford and his band of followers start by giving the Wraith enzyme to everyone but Sheppard to prove its effectiveness and then there is the plan.

    • Ford: We have a spaceship. McKay: Oh, yeah? Really. What's that made out of, huh? Bark?

    • McKay: Well, couldn't we have met these people on a tropical beach planet, populated by tall, blonde women? Hmm?

    • McKay: I just want to make it clear that every second I'm out of my lab is a second the galaxy goes without another groundbreaking... (cut off by shots).

    • Ford: I can't believe you screwed up. Sheppard: I did what? Ford: You set off the alarm. You ruined the mission.

    • Teyla: (to Sheppard as he awakes) You all right? Sheppard: We're in a holding cell.... Teyla: Yes. Sheppard: ...on a hive ship? Teyla: (nods) uh-huh. Sheppard: Then, no, I'm not doing so good. (sits up)

    Trivia (9)

    • McKay: He's taken all the necessary control crystals. Something I showed him how to do on a mission, I might add. McKay is referring to the season 1 episode "Home."

    • Ford: (to Ronon) You know, it's funny. You ask a dozen people who they thought would win a fight between you and me, people would choose you hands down. Hell, I'd choose you. But we went toe to toe. This refers to events in the episode "Runner."

    • It is revealed that the D.H.D. stores gate addresses on it's crystals but there is no way to tell which order they were dialed in. However in the Stargate SG-1 episode "The Quest (2)", the Ori Adria was able to distinguish the last address dialed by SG-1 and follow them.

    • Jace reveals to McKay that they have discovered that the Wraith are more territorial and not a united force as was previously believed. He believes that because of Teyla's ability to access their telepathic network, each ship is becoming compartmentalized in terms of sharing information. This way, if she or someone with her abilities were to access a ship's telepathic link, only that vessel would be compromised. He also believes that they are fracturing more because of lack of food in the galaxy with so many Wraith awake at once.

    • Kanayo, second in command of Ford's coalition, is a former Genii spy. He reveals that the Genii have spy's all over the galaxy as well as off-world safe houses on several planets.

    Allusions (3)

    • Independence Day: The premise for this episode is like that of the movie Independence Day. In both, an alien ship piloted by humans flies into a mother ship to plant explosives. There are various other similarities between the two such as the human pilot being exposed to the aliens and the mission going wrong. Also, the interior of the hive ship's docking area is very reminiscent of the interior of the alien mothership in the film.

    • Sheppard: R2, I need you to turn the autopilot off. This is a reference to Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, in which Anakin Skywalker makes a similar request.

    • Title: The Lost Boys were the children who lived in Neverland with Peter Pan and couldn't/wouldn't grow up. Joel Schumacher named his 1987 film about a gang of adolescent vampires in a small California coastal town after these James Barrie characters. The movie starred a young Kiefer Sutherland.
