Deathfic (guest character). Missing Scene.
Drifting in the emptiness of space...
Spoilers: Missing scene for Progeny.
Thank you to Jayne Perry for the beta-reading.
Drifting in the emptiness of space, he could feel the satisfaction of
the others – the ones who had no wish to learn about ascension
and saw only enemies where there could have been friends. They had
successfully used him to pass on a nanite infection to Dr Weir, revenge
for the loss of their city ship, and already he could feel them
planning another attack on Atlantis - their violence and hatred

As for himself, there would be no new body for him to be reborn into.
He could feel Oberoth's hatred towards him and knew there was no coming
back from that. He would be completely erased. No more Niam or the
chance to discover the secret of ascension. He had failed.
Slowly, his body began to shut down and his consciousness started to
fade. He knew this was the end and yet he could not feel regret. Only
the facsimile of it.
Thus was the flaw that he could not see or understand. Thus there was
no ascension for him as his body finally froze. Only an unending death.
A/N (for canon-picky people like me!): I know Niam is brought
back in 'The Return', but it could be argued that it is not Niam
himself. In the scene where he speaks to Rodney, it sounds like the
others talking and not Niam himself.
