McKay: Wait a minute. I thought you worked with a whole group of Hives.
Todd: I do, but I may have...exaggerated my position within the alliance.
Sheppard: He doesn't have the clout!
Ronon: (smugly) Then he's no good to us.
Todd: There is only one you need to convince. Among all the Queens in the alliance, one sits above the rest. We call her the Primary.
McKay: The uber-Queen?
Todd: Convince her, and the rest will fall into line.
Sheppard: Then convince her.
Todd: She will only speak with another Queen.
Teyla: And your Queen was killed last year in the skies above Atlantis.
Todd: Regrettably, yes. But the Primary does not know this.
Sheppard: You bluffed your way into the alliance and convinced them you still have a Queen?!
Todd: They would not have accepted me otherwise. Up 'til now I've been able to maintain this subterfuge, but a face-to-face meeting…that would be difficult. In fact, there is only one person who could help me.
