Note: Unfortunately, for those with hearing impairments, the customer service department says the discs do not come with transcripts.

Nothing too exciting for the Wraith fans, to be honest.

***”Perchance to Dream” by is audiobook #1.4, narrated by Paul McGill1on. It is about 1 hour long and broken into 14 chapters of a few minutes each, along with an interview with the actor in chapter 15.

Short summary: While in a seemingly ill and dream-like state, Carson witnesses a virus-like sickness impacting the Lanteans and encounters a shadow-like being roaming through the city.

Wraith featured: There is a Wraith Queen.

Wraith treatment: So-so. Carson feels sympathy for the Wraith, but the Wraith gets the typical SGA-style treatment and ending.

***”A Necessary Evil” is audiobook #1.2, narrated by Torri Higgins0n. It is about 1 hour long and broken into 13 chapters of a few minutes each, along with an interview with the actress in chapter 14.

Short summary: Team Shep investigates a planet with phase shift technology and a Wraith hive appears while they are visiting. Elizabeth acts as a negotiator when the planet’s inhabitants battle over what to do about solving the resource scarcity problem created by the very phase shift technology hiding them from the Wraith.

Wraith featured: One Wraith interacts with the characters in a brief scene

Wraith treatment: Started off promising with Weir thinking about how the Wraith should be treated as individuals, but it didn’t last. The Wraith met up-close is treated two-dimensionally, described with xenophobia, and treated as simple cannon fodder, with the phrase and objectifying pronoun it in “Kill it.” At least the hiveship full of other Wraith gets to fly away on its own.
