|Captain of Aurora|
|Out of universe information|
The Captain of Aurora was the Lantean Captain of the Aurora-class battleship Aurora. He and the rest of his crew were infiltrated while in stasis by his first officer, who was really a Wraith pretending to be the officer. He was at first skeptical to believe that he and his crew were in stasis, although he was convinced by Lt. Colonel John Sheppard. He gave Sheppard the code to activate the Aurora's self-destruct, in an attempt to destroy two Wraith cruisers, in order to prevent the knowledge that Atlantis had not actually been destroyed from reaching the rest of the Wraith. The ensuing explosion was stated to be powerful enough to destroy anything within a 2 kilom radius.
