Function

Stasis

A Wraith Hibernation pod, also known as a Cocoon, is a Wraith stasis technology.

Overview

There are clusters of these pods on Hive ships. When in stasis the Wraith do not have detectable life signs. The pods can be linked to a keeper who when they die, it will wake them all up. (SGA: "Rising") The pods can be used to keep humans alive for later feeding, suspending their lives even when near death. (SGA: "Underground", "The Hive") The pods are warm and take all pressure off the spine. (SGA: "No Man's Land") Durign hibernation there is a constant exchange fluids between the Wraith and the system through tendrils that grow onto the occupant. (SGA: "Infection")

History

When the Keeper was killed, the hive's hibernation pods began waking up the occupants. (SGA: "Rising")
