I coppied this information because it is pure speculation
- It has been said that it is some sort of life signs detector or marking the planet from other wrath kinda like marking territory. But saying this is comes from the ground up. Not from the wrath ships itself as speculated.
although I have my own theory: the wraith dart beamed down some sort of device that allows a dart to transfer (or off load) its supplies that are then sent up to the ships in orbit. Oberoth20 (talk) (Contribs) 23:29, June 16, 2012 (UTC)
Decent ideas Oberoth20, I always figured it was a long range Culling beam from a Hive ship. As we saw in the carvings Teyla showed John Wraith Hives seem to be able to project culling beams. Gormagon (talk) (Contribs) 19:20, October 4, 2013 (UTC)
