Stephen awoke slowly, with the pins and needles riccocheting through him that announced clearly: stunner. He was in the starboard hangar, surrounded by roughly a dozen of his crew. Only Marks was showing any signs of coming around yet, and his eyes were still rolled back in his head.

A shuffle at the door caught his attention, and Stephen rolled to his feet, grabbing Marks by the shoulders of his jumpsuit and dragging him behind a nearby barrel. Marks grunted a protest, but a sharp "Silence, Marks" from his commanding officer shut him up fast.

Stephen didn't know why the hell the Wraith had suddenly decided to take control of the Daedalus (and it would be the last time he willingly let one on board anything more than cuffed and stark naked), but he was damned certain he wasn't going to be waiting to find out.

"Marks," he hissed into his pilot's ear. "Do you hear me?"

Marks nodded very slowly, his lips moving in a barely perceptible, "Yes, sir."

"I need to get out of here, to be in a position to find out what's going on, to retake the ship." Stephen stared at Marks intently. "I need you to forget I was ever on the bridge, ok? Make sure the others know too. Can you do that?"

Marks' eyes fell closed again and he nodded slightly.

"Good," Stephen said, and headed for the ventilation systems. From there he could access the whole ship, and with some luck, the others would cover smoothly enough that the Wraith would never even notice him missing.

Thank you! I was beginning to think I was the only one who noticed he disappeared.

Ha! I was listening to Woolsey on the bridge the first time and suddenly turned to goblie, and blurted out "Where's Caldwell? Did they say anything?". Yeah, no.

So! Where did he go? I needed to know! This is the explanation that doesn't include his dessicated corpse. Though, when I originally thought of it I had him locked alone in his quarters forlornly sharpening a spoon to dig his way through the bulkhead... :)

Thank you!

You're going to continue this right? I need to know why the hell Caldwell disappeared from that episode.

Goody, goody. This had to be done. ^_-

Dunno about continuing yet. Maybe? I also want to know what happened next, but my brain may not co-operate. :)

Thanks for reviewing!

*Cracks up*

Check out *your* productivity lately!! If you're not careful I'm going to think you don't require a fic!stalker. ;)

Dude, I am so glad you wrote this. I'm not sure if I would have noticed had you not uh, mentioned it to me (... I probably would have! The episode had loads of time to go!! ;)) but once you HAD pointed it out, it was serious WTFage about poor Caldwell.

"I need you to forget I was ever on the bridge, ok? Make sure the others know too. Can you do that?" *Dies laughing* Dude! They did that so effectively! *Loves Caldwell and his men*

I'm glad he made it out ok and was off saving the world as opposed to holed up in a cell somewhere, banging a tin mug rather pitifully across a set of bars.... Actually I quite like that one too *Laughs* Just kidding. GO CALDWELL, GO!

I too, think it would be fun to see what happened next -well, from *his* angle, 'cause we already know what happened next (*nudges you*)-but this is also good as it is.

*Swish* *Swish* *Swish* :)

Thanks for sharing!

The swish is awesome. All hail the swish.

Thanks ! I do like surprising you when I can. At least these little short ones are also fast to write.

Ah, so he was off crawling through ducts while all of the action was going on, eh? :) I'm glad he's OK.

(and it would be the last time he willingly let one on board anything more than cuffed and stark naked) Word.

... and doing other top secret sneaky colonel-type stuff. Secretly he's the reason John thought of the hyperspace window, I'm sure of it!

Thanks! Actually, Caldwell (in my head) made a blech comment about that line too. *laughing*

Thank you. It's been bugging the hell out of me wondering where he got of to. Well, you have to continue this now. Did he meet up with Ronon and they decided to go get a drink together or what? ;-)

I'm not entirely sure. I think I choose to believe he took out much of the wraith guarding the ship, secred the armoury, and was communicating secretly with Marks (which would also explain Mark's bizarre lack of excitement as they were about to die.) Oh! I'll bet he was communication with John and suggested the hyperspace thing. :)
