  • Sheppard and the team visit a world where no one is over 24 years old because of a ritual suicide practice they believe keeps the Wraith at bay.

    While on a survey mission to an unexplored world Major John Sheppard and his team detect a large power source emanating from the surface. When they move their Puddle Jumper in to investigate the entire ship loses power, forcing them to crash.When Dr. McKay gets hold of Lieutenant Ford's compass he soon deduces the disturbance that forced them to land is electromagnetic. It would explain why all of the technology is inoperable, not just the Jumper. If they can localize it, they can shut off the power source and take off, preventing a long trek back to the Stargate.
