The IOA is conducting interviews back on Earth to ensure that any personnel serving on Atlantis (in particular, aliens) are suitable for their roles. The episode opens up with a pregnant Teyla having been interviewed and reporting back to Atlantis. Ronon is next. Col. Carter is unsure about Ronon's ability to handle the IOA's interview and therefore asks Teal'c to come to Atlantis in a coaching capacity for Ronon. After a rocky start to their relationship, Ronon and Teal'c return to Earth, via the series of Stargates and a Midway Station, that McKay had previously designed. The Midway Station between the Milky Way and Pegasus galaxies serves primarily as a place for those traveling between the galaxies to serve a 24 hour quarantine.

Ronan is Teal'c's equal??
6 April 2019 | by chiguy17See all my reviews

This was one of the worst episodes in the SG universe. Teal'c, a Stargate legend, is pitted against Ronan. Although Teal'c is clearly in better shape and Ronan's superior physically, mentally, strategically, etc. they make them equals and a formidable match for each other. I have no idea why they did this, as it's not the least bit believable. Just a horrible decision on the part or the writers and producers.
