|Out of universe information|
Dr. Abrams was a scientist who traveled to the Pegasus galaxy with the original members of the Atlantis expedition. He and Dr. Brendan Gall accompanied Dr. Rodney McKay and Major John Sheppard to investigate a Lagrangian Point satellite that had been discovered on Atlantis' sensors.
Before they could investigate the satellite, the Puddle Jumper detected a Wraith distress signal. Sheppard decided to take the scientists and investigate the disturbance. Several minutes after entering a downed Wraith supply ship, Abrams and Gall encountered a Wraith commander who had recently awoke from hibernation. It pushed Gall aside and fed on Abrams, killing him.
