The Assault on Earth was a series of battles between the Atlantis Expedition and the rogue Wraith known as "Khan," culminating in a massive orbital battle above Earth. This marked the first time that the Wraith had successfully managed to locate and travel to the Milky Way Galaxy, overcoming their technological handicap, if only briefly. It was also the first time in over ten-thousand years that superhives had been active, demonstrating their tremendous ability to crush even the most-sophisticated warships with terrifying ease. Although the humans would ultimately go on to win the conflict, it would have major ramifications for both inhabited galaxies, as, at the end of the day, Atlantis was forced to remain on Earth pending a United Nations investigation into the Expedition's future mandate.
