Earth, Milky Way Galaxy: Atlantis takes off from Earth and enters hyperspace. Dr. Rodney McKay informs Col. Samantha Carter and Mr. Richard P. Woolsey that they can dump the extra energy from the overload into the city's shields or the wormhole drive. If that doesn't work, the results would be and explosion or decompression. After using the After Wormhole Drive, the overload is prevented.

Atlantis comes to a stop at the edge of the Pegasus Galaxy. There are still major repairs that need to be done and because of Janus, the main computer can't be trusted for the time being, so it is taken offline.

They set course for the plant they left when the traveled to Earth to fight the Super-hive. Because the computer is offline, there needs to be someone with the Ancient Technology Activation gene operating the control chair around the clock. The city arrives at the planet and Col. John Sheppard lands the city on the ocean.

Pegasus Galaxy: After Atlantis lands, it is decided to restore the computer using a backup file to avoid anything that Janus may have done to the software. Since restoring the whole backup would take longer then they would want, the operating system portion of the backup is restored first.

After learning that the Earth control crystal was destroyed at the Alpha Site, Sheppard orders McKay to get his stuff. meanwhile Janus is being interview where he learns about Dr. Elizabeth Weir's death and he blames Sheppard for it.

On board the Daedalus: After following the Travelers, the Daedalus drops to sub-light speed. After doing so, they are attacked. After returning fire on one of the ships, the Daedalus is hailed by Larrin.

On board the Daedalus, Teyla is united with Kanaan and Torren. It is learned that the aliens started to come through the Stargate and attacking the Athosians, but the Travelers rescued them. Larrin says that they have been getting reports that this is happening all across the galaxy. She and the Traveler fleet are planning on attacking the alien's base.

The Lord Protector Planet: Sheppard's team travels to the planet who's civilization is ruled by the Lord Protector. The type of crystal that they are looking for is not at the site of the gate. They gain Tavius's, the Lord Protector, permission to get the crystal that they need. They tell him that the generator is not powerful enough to power the control chair.

The team hooks up a Mark IV Naquadah generator up to the city's systems. They find what they are looking for when someone informs them that there are explosions coming from the village and people running to the Tower. Sheppard activates the control chair and they learn that the Unknown Aliens are attacking.
