A fan over at JoeFlaniganOnline@yahoogroups.com reported that Michael Shanks said at his convention talk yesterday (Nov 17th) that he has been contacted by Joe Mallozzi about appearing in season 5 of SGA.

Nothing definitive yet.

The chance of this happening is very high! I think it's great to see guest characters coming on from SG-1! I cannot wait till Miday this season.

Still guest starring is fine, just no one else permanent.

You do know that was just Internet speculation. In fact Shanks, deined rumors of him as a main character on Universe

So happy to deliver! :D

Since I want to watch season 5, I hope it would be just one ep.

Daniel has always been my least liked character so, he being regularly in SGA s5 would be just what I need to stop watching altogether.

After all, I like Carter a lot but so far, for me, her involvement in s4 has been just a waste of screentime.

Daniel's the one character who doesn't have a 'duplicate' on Atlantis. The rest all do, which is why Sam is a bit redundant becuase the base has McKay and Zelenka, but so far, the writers are doing an adequate job of keeping her out of any labs (cuz realistically, ain't her job anymore)...

Just 5..
I found how "well versed" Wier was in ancient to be a tad unbelievable. Daniel was still translating Ancient after she left for Peggy (S8), so that she can just suddenly read it fluently when even Daniel was still working bits out is a bit of a joke. Hell, even Teyla knows less ancient than Weir and she has lived in Peggy her whole life where the "ancestors" are enshrined in godhood.

So yeah, I put it down to the Laptop - it has to be helping her somehow, because anything else is too far fetched, even for me.

yippie! He needs to go there for an episode, no more than a two parter though. Daniel is so tied up with the ancient storyline and ascended storyline and the whole finding-Atlantis-wanna-go-there-but-stuff-keeps-stopping-me storyline, that he needs something over there for an episode.

Though I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be much anyhow because I thought he was doing that angel thing with CJ next year or something like that. It's not up my line, but my boyfriend is pretty interested in it the more gory CJ makes it sound.

It would also be exceptionally poor writing.

Those overseeing the expedition clearly felt that a military leader - and I can imagine that the decision to place a member of the US military in command of Atlantis was not one they made lightly - with a background in Ancient and Replicator technology is needed under the current circumstances, so if anything did happen to Sam, her replacement would likely be a military officer, preferably with a scientific background.

Unless the circumstances of the Atlantis expedition change drastically, I can't see the requirements for a potential expedition leader changing.

The only circumstances I could see Daniel being considered in any way acceptable as the new leader of Atlantis by those calling the shots would be if (a) the Wraith and Replicators were both wiped out and (b) the folks calling the shots decided that they had quite enough advanced technology and that they'd rather dedicate the expedition to archaeological exploration and the "meaning of life stuff".

Whatever about (a), I don't see (b) happening any time soon.

In the event that Amanda is unavailable for Season Five, TPTB's best bet would be to ask Torri to return. Three expedition leaders in as many seasons would be too many. There needs to be some stability in the cast.

A third leader should only be considered if neither Amanda or Torri are available and if there has to be a third leader, it should be a new character or someone like Caldwell, another SG-1 character would be a mistake. They could get away with bringing one over and even then it caused friction; I don't think they could get away with it a second time.

To bring Vala over to Atlantis, the writers would first have to have a reason for why Vala would be needed there, why her inclusion in an episode would be justified. It's highly unlikely that she would be recruited as a member of the Atlantis expedition, as she is neither a scientist nor a member of the military so, short of having her come over to visit Sam*, their options are very limited.



*Something they could realistically get away with for only one SG-1 character, in one episode, if that. If they use that as a way to bring Vala over, they can't use it with any of the others or it will become rather ridiculous.

They killed off Weir. I am sure if they want to bring Vala, they'll find a way. Either way, I prefer Vala to Larin and if Daniel joins, Vala would make a very good asset, even if for one episode. I want to see them have their cat fights :D.

Here's an idea to bring both characters over - an AU, one where the Daedalus left a bit later and, when Daniel and Vala were stuck together, she went to Atlantis too (which means that they didn't alert the Ori to our galaxy). After they were separated, she stuck around and made herself useful.

Three years on, Sam (probably the best choice) accidentally travels to the AU.

I have high hopes that I will get to see him on an episode. There are quite a few different Atlantis characters I'd like to see him interact with because he was stuck with Vala and really only talked to Weir on Peg. Project.

I've gotta really disagree with seasons 9 and 10 as I loved the Ori plot it really made the show darker. As per Daniel 2-3 eps is fine by me just not a regular role.

Since he was there, I took the opportunity to pitch Michael what we had so far on the Daniel Jackson story - something happens and Atlantis must call in Dr. Jackson who is the key to solving some as-of-yet-undecided mystery and this leads to all sorts of hilarious misadventure. I suggested that if he had any notes, now would be a good time to give them.

Reading that passage actually gave me an idea on how they can get Danny into Atlantis: What if, on a typical Atlantis day, an Ancient sudden appears in front of the Stargate? He/she is naked, and has amnesia - a fallen Ancient, and now the Expedition needs Danny to come and see what he can fish out of this Ancient, as he himself has been in this exact situation.

Hilarious misadventure? I don't like the sound of that...

Um, me either. I really want to see Daniel on Atlantis once or twice, but not if it's all going to be a farce. Daniel=/ comedy. There are ten bazillion storylines that they could use that could include Daniel without taking away from Atlantis characters. Funny is not one of them.

Indeed, and quite often the original idea for a script and the end script are often two very different things. Joe Fs Epiphany story idea is a prime example.

Michael Shanks ("Daniel Jackson" (http://www.gateworld.net/omnipedia/characters/links/jacksondaniel.shtml)) will guest star in an unspecified number of episodes. The release does indicate that it will be more than one.

So daniel will hopefully have an Arc of storylines, perhaps something to do with Ascension of the PG Ancients, maybe take the ZPM from that time dialated planet in the knowledge the ancients cant do squat, or maybe something far cooler than im coming up with at this particular moment lol.

So what do people think about Daniel being in S5, and what could he be up to in Daniel Disneyland. Personally Daniel deserves to be on Atlantis more than the AE, he discovered the place after all :D

PS Noticed every other character has a "what will their role in S5 be" so thought Danny deserved one

I like Daniel, but I think 2 "major" cross-over with SG-1 is enough for a season. They should call Sam, Teal'c and Daniel together for an episode or a two-parter, which has to be an absolutely good story even better than The Pegasus Project, than every other episode should be leave for the Atlantis crew. ;)

3. Daniel Jackson will be guesting in some episodes.

So far, we’ve got a terrific, BIG two-parter planned. I suspect that the page count in the Daniel/McKay scenes (featuring the two fastest-talking actors in show business) will have the scheduling gurus doing back-flips. Remember that new enemy I mentioned? Oh, and Marty G. will be doing the honors on this one.

"Big two parter?" Well that sounds promising.

I'm just looking forward to watching Daniel and Rodney in the same scene. It should prove greatly amusing.

I've been looking forward to seeing Daniel in Atlantis. I've always had this picture in my head of Rodney struggling to figure out some piece of Ancient tech and Daniel pointing out, "well, if you knew how to read Ancient, you could just read the instructions and..." It's always amazed me how they never seem to actually need to read Ancient even though they are in an Ancient city. :rolleyes:

I also feel like we've learned more about the Ancients from Daniel's ascension and the Daniel/Merlin story arc in SG-1, than from the entire four seasons of Atlantis. So maybe they will be able to use some of Daniel's knowledge, and hopefully add to the show's mythology a bit.

After all, I like Carter a lot but so far, for me, her involvement in s4 has been just a waste of screentime.

I always enjoy seeing Daniel making discoveries. The poor guy just lights up and that doesn't happen very often.

I think that there could very well be a connection between Daniel and the Weir storyline, especially if Weir's group of Replicators are still seeking ascension. Daniel is unique in that he has experienced it twice, has the buried knowledge, and also because he harbored the consciousness of Moros/Merlin who was the leader of Atlantis at the time the Asurans were created.

If Weir thinks that Daniel still harbors some knowledge of how and when he ascended, or if he still harbors residual knowledge from Moros, she could very well orchestrate getting him to the Pegasus Galaxy (like the building of a fake ruins site that only Daniel's expertise can solve -- especially if it promised weapons that would catch the eye of Woolsey and McKay alike). She could then kidnap him, or even replace him with a duplicate, so that she has time to get more information on ascension.

I know that sounds a lot like Replicator Carter, but if they go with the Moros-Atlantis-Asuran-Ascension arc, it would have its place in the storyline of Stargate Atlantis.

Daniel had the honor of being the one to discover the destination of Atlantis in the show's pilot, "Rising".

He had an extreme investment in searching for the place ever since Season Six of SG-1 -- especially evident in "Full Circle" when he discovered the existence of the "Lost City" and knew that finding it would make the difference in defeating Anubis. His insisting that it was more important than even the Eye of Ra showed how very powerful the weapons of this Lost City were. It was later that he interpreted Jack's actions after Jack took the Ancient download that led SG-1 to find the Antarctic Outpost -- which in turn led Daniel to start the search for the "Lost City" because he knew that the Outpost wasn't it.

Daniel's story is very much tied to Atlantis.

And he so wanted to explore the city, but his mission there was to find Merlin's weapon. :(

Daniel doesn't get very many happy endings.

Maybe this time, he can actually take some time to enjoy the place, but from the sounds of it, it won't be long enough if the "new enemy" is involved. I sure hope he isn't the one to awaken the sleeping dragon this time around - poor guy. Every time he tries to combine his exploratory desires with the mandate of the Stargate Program, he opens a huge can of worms (as what happened to him at the beginning of Season Nine of SG-1). It seems he shares something with the Atlantis Expedition in unwittingly getting the enemy's attention.

I think that is why it seems only fair that Daniel get to see the city and explore it -- he was the one who found it.

To the people of the Pegasus Galaxy, such as Ronon and Teyla, Atlantis has become their best hope, so I'd hope that they would feel some measure of awe and appreciation for Daniel's accomplishments, like you suggest. Not only because he found the city, but because he was one of the Ascended who chose to return to fight for humanity any way he could.

I think that Daniel would have a great interest in the Athosian and Satedan cultures. I also think that if the Athosians are truly gone, that Teyla and Daniel would connect because of their desire to see that that culture didn't die when Teyla and her son are gone -- to record its history. Daniel would probably show a lot of interest in the rites and ceremonies of the Athosians -- especially since they recited some of their prayers in the language of the Ancestors/Ancients.

Teal'c has called Daniel a warrior and I think that Ronon would see that in him as well. Ronon's time with McKay and other scientists of Atlantis has probably allowed him to see that "geeks" can still be warriors.

The Pegasus Galaxy is probably full of cultures that parallel those on Earth simply because of the Ancients' influences. It's a shame that they are getting wiped out.

I'd love for Daniel to determine the identity of the city-ship from "The Tower". Was it another city-ship that left Earth or another planet in the Milky Way at the same time Atlantis left? Could that city-ship have been the one associated with Praclarush Taonas, or is it another fabled "lost city"? How many others were there and where did they go?

The history of the Ancients goes back millions upon millions of years. Daniel has a great deal to offer in putting together the missing pieces.

You would think so. But I'm not holding my breath. Don't want to suffocate. I will hold out hope, though.

Sometimes it seems like they don't know what to do with quest stars or they just put them in to raise the ratings. For example, I wasn't real impressed with the "return of Dr. Weir."

But since JM said they were working on a two-parter, I'm hoping Daniel won't just be there to pacify the fans who want him there. I hope they make good use of all the potential he has for Atlantis. Because if they do, it could lead to some seriously cool developments for the show.

All good points. I hadn't thought of Daniel and Teyla connecting over her people. That makes some amount of sense.

While I agree that Ronon and Daniel could have some interesting interaction, I doubt it will happen. One of my complaints about Atlantis is that they stereotype their characters. The scientists are geeks and the military personnel are tough guys. Daniel doesn't fit into those stereotypes anymore, but I imagine he will while on Atlantis. Despite the potential, I just don't see the writers putting Daniel and Ronon into the position where they would actually have to talk to each other.

Besides, if it's a two-parter, they're going to be blowing things up, not sitting around talking about parallels between Earth cultures and the Athosians or Satedans.

Don't get me wrong, I think the cultural stuff would be interesting. I agree with all of your points, and think they are great ideas. But like I said, I'm not holding my breath for it actually happening.

I guess that will have to be left to the fans' imaginations, since, after all, Mallozzi did say that if Atlantis did have an archeaologist, that person wouldn't be seen but part-time.

Most of my points were just to show that Daniel can and does fit well into the Atlantis universe, even if we'll never get to see it on the screen.

There are many ways to re-introduce the character into the show, but it does appear that he'll have something to do with the new enemy. I'm just hoping that he's not the one to stumble on them like he did with the Ori.

We have a few hints at how he'll be used in his "so far" two episodes: Daniel and McKay have speed-speak interaction and there's a New Enemy. Daniel usually talks fast when he's excited about some kind of discovery and goes on about its significance (I still get a kick out his opening scene in "Morpheus" from Season Ten when his teammates stare back at him after some of his excited babbling, and Carter says, "And you say I'm hard to understand."). McKay's the same way -- he'll "praddle on" with excitement and his team is left just staring at him. For both of those to be excited like this together seems to indicate that they've made some great discovery that Daniel sees as having some historical significance and at the same time, McKay sees as having technological significance. McKay would get very excited over a new energy source, perhaps?

And, I'm wondering how advanced this New Enemy really is. I hope they're not ascended, but I do hope that there is an Ancient tie-in. The Ancients built their powerful weapons for some reason (even in the Milky Way before even coming to the Pegasus Galaxy). I don't think that all of their weapons were meant to oppose the Ori.

I hope that Daniel has some interaction with the wraith, i think that would be really interesting. As to his ability to offer things to atlantis, i think theres too much to really go in to, his expertise in alien and human cultures is beyond anyone's and his ability to read and speak ancient likely surpasses others who have learned it mainly from his translations. Also now that the military is moving in, and wier gone, there is less interest with cultural exploration than there had been in the past, daniel might bring some of that back.

As to the idea that there could have been other cityships, remember when daniel was asking morgan about the earliest lantian cities, she mentioned proclarous, and they left when they learned their sun was nearing the end of its life. Well in TLC proclarous was dead by a million years or more, what if these ancients left after the lantians, and crash landed in pegasus...

i'd like to see Daniel as a villain. he discovers something cool...that turns him bad. very bad. and someone from the atlantis team gets turned bad too. ronon would kick ass if he's a bad guy. imagine daniel and ronon as bad guys vs. atlantis team. through this they somehow "create/find/make" new enemies. than daniel heads off to somewhere yada yada yada...and ronon overcomes the bad influence.

McKay would get very excited over a new energy source, perhaps?

And, I'm wondering how advanced this New Enemy really is. I hope they're not ascended, but I do hope that there is an Ancient tie-in. The Ancients built their powerful weapons for some reason (even in the Milky Way before even coming to the Pegasus Galaxy). I don't think that all of their weapons were meant to oppose the Ori.

the other possibility is daniel and rondey turned bad. they'd rock together. mckay would be more like the one from mckay and mrs miller and daniel was just great in absolute power. that was the best ep ever.

though i'm concerned lately with were atlantis is going. regardless of what kind of an enemy we're up against we always win. without any substantial losses. it's like yeah some bad aliens are gonna kick our sorry asses but who cares, we'll prevail. they don't seem to care, and there is always the famous sentence "we MIGHT be able to..." i hated that with carter and i hate it with mckay. things don't always turn out for the best.

why can't there be a scifi show that can keep the scifi and reality together. in atlantis we never see any personal feelings expressed by characters. they kill enemies by hundreds and they don't even blink. they're like yeah whatever.

i'd only expect/understand that kind of behavior from ronon since he was on the run from the wraith for almost a decade and his love of the life was killed. his character should be much more deadly than he is.

they should try to join the scifi with 24 i guess. that show portrays this feelings very good. jack really puts himself out there and sacrifices everything. he kills with no hesitation but regrets it later. he is sorry that he had to do all the killing. when his emotions get hurt, he shows it very well. and when someone from ctu gets killed you actually feel sorry. there is a lot of dilemma, morality and guilt in that show. scifi shows should really get some of that. in scifi kind of way of course.

look at episodes like harmony. shep kills three Genii with one shot. how the hell... but it unnerves me that he doesn't mind. he is sort of proud of the killing. he brags to mckay about the shot he made. wtf is that...?? person who does that is not well adjusted.

and when mckay is faced with impossible, he never fails. his hands never shake for a second. he doesn't even sweat when he tries to stop the destruction. he never takes a deep breath or tries to calm down. etc.

i'll stop b.itching about the show now. everything i mentioned was probably discussed on more than one occaison. so, sorry for the long post. i hope anyone will care to read it.

whatever they do i hope they can spice up the show. it's getting kinda boring right now. compared to SG-1 it's just a cheap kickoff.

Jeff O'Connor
February 9th, 2008, 08:04 AM
Well, Weir's return, had it been done right, could have spiced things up, but given Ms. Higginson's rejection, I'm guessing it wouldn't have been superb to begin with. Of course, this is simply coming from an Elizabeth Weir fan who is still shuffling his emotional reaction to the news, so you could well disagree with me.

No, I think regardless of all that, what this show really needs now is a powerful new enemy, that isn't a ripoff of something which has already transpired, isn't a complete scream of rehashes of sci-fi cliches and can be looked upon as incredibly satisfying when it comes to build-up episodes and resolutions, a combination which hasn't really been pulled off in Stargate Atlantis. We have mixed moments in both, but the Wraith have never been so solid as to constantly leave us waiting for more, nor the Asurans. Usually I've seen it as a matter of tense, witty enough build-up downplayed in what are supposed to be tremendously poignant episodes they've aimed for, but only a few times has it really worked. (Such as the Siege portion of the show; that satisfied me. But it's a rarity in that department.)

Also, it needs more Genii, and it needs a return to viewing them as was done before, not opportunistic mercenaries interfering with things for business transaction purposes or what-have-you, but a more consistent display of strength. Or finally make them the Tok'ra 2.0 the show originally seemed to think they'd become. And bring Kolya back. Somehow. And have Sora hellbent on revenge. Finally. Even though that almost definitely ain't gonna happen.

TPTB have a fatal flaw in this series. They can come up with some striking new features, but their problem is a strange one; they don't know where to go with the brainstormed wonders they envision. We have seen countless times things that sound amazing on paper and even begin as such turn to stardust, and I'm getting tired of it.

I do love the show; I'm not an anti-fan, I will watch the fifth season. (Even despite how much I bitterly miss Weir, heh.) But it... gets aggravating.

I'll post more of what I think could really bring this show to powerhouse status later. (Except in a more appropriate thread... oops, just remembered this is about Michael Shanks!)

Uhh. Uh... oh, here. I can still redeem myself. I know what would be really kickass and help Stargate Atlantis to prosper again. Yes... I know.

If they do that, I will immediately turn off the episode and ensure that I avoid all future appearances by Daniel like the plague.

I do not want to see the Atlantis team turned into idiots in order to champion Daniel as the "expert on the Ancients".

I think the introducing of new race is a bit late in mid-season two-parter, because if the want to make 4-5 episodes about them, than every plot centric episodes have to be about them in the season and they won't have enough time for Michael or the Wraith. :( So I would like to see earlier rather in 5x05-5x06 + 5x10-5x11 or 5x18-5x19. ;)

I do hope they come up with something creative and integrative for him to be there for. I want to see him interacting with so many different Atlantis characters.

There's a well done but kind of sad fanvid out on the internet I saw once to Simon and Garfunkel's "Scarborough Fair" that's about Daniel's longing to to to Atlantis and how he has all this work with the ancients and then ascension. And it highlights all his work to put together the clues to find the Lost City, but yet he never gets to go there when it's all finally said and done.

So I'm glad they were able to have him on Atlantis. And alternately a little worried that it might mean MS hasn't found much work now that SG1 is over, though people keep assuring me there's stuff in the works.

I thought MGM gave it a go-ahead to shoot the pilot and they were waiting on a director from 24 to have some free time or something. I'm out of date on their projects since classes started. I also thought he and CJ were going to do some hot men of sci-fi calender like they did the hot women of sci-fi a few years ago with their company of the same name.

I'm just a little sad that I have seen people say MS was desperate for work and that's why he's going to be on Atlantis for a couple of appearances. It can't just be that he was happy to do them? He's tied up in the storyline enough that it wouldn't be too shoehorning for him to appear there.

I'm sure Michael is doing just fine :), in a recent con report I read he said he wanted to work on Atlantis simply becuase he enjoyed working with that particular group of people (the stargate cast and crew).
He worked within the Stargate francise for 10 years and I think he would need little excuse to work with them them again, all the cast have talked about the fun they have on set. :)

Don't worry the ROA thing has been on hold because of the writers strike, they do have the green light to go ahead with it for the pilot. MS has said many times that he took time off to be with his family, he hasn't worked because he didn't want to, not because he couldn't.

The calendar thing is on hold too because CJ is busy writing the new show.

I am sure MS wanted to be on a couple of episodes of Atlantis because he loves the character so much and as a loyal supporter of the franchise I am sure he is more than happy to give the show a little ratings boost.:)

Don't take nay notice of what some people say about MS, listen to the man himself.

I don't think an actor as great as MS will ever want for work, that said he has also made it quite clear that he never has to work again if he doesn't want to. He has been very astute financially I hear!

He has alot of expertise so I guess they could use him to facilitate a new discovery or solve a problem? I imagine Daniel would be studying all the information he can that comes from Atlantis regarding the Acients anyway.

He is 'so far' only in two epsiodes so I guess they will be limited to what they can do with him but either way I'm looking forward to finding out! :D

He is perhaps an expert on matters relating to the Ancients... besides, Im pretty sure they will give him a good reason for appearing on Atlantis. After all, before the whole Ori problem, he was going to head there anyway until the ship left without him.

While Marty G. is on the set of his episode (Search and Rescue), and Paul is prepping his episode (The Seed), and I’m writing my script (Whispers), Carl is doing another rewrite of his script (Ghost in the Machine), and Alan is mulling over a possible story to slip into the #9 slot as the script originally envisioned for that spot ran into a “creative snafu” that a) moved it into the back half and b) may necessitate a change in perspective. Brad is, of course, penning #6 (can‘t wait to see the grotto), Carl is going to jump on #8 (interesting developments in this one that had Priscilla and the gang at MGM very excited), and Marty G. will do the honors for the mid-season two-parter (Welcome back to Atlantis, Dr. Jackson).

<<crosses fingers>> Two eps too many imo. Well, I can always do something else those eps.

Let me take a stab in the dark and say you're not a Daniel fan?

Sad but true... I'll be happy with the two eps he's in though :)

Sad indeed. I love Daniel and am glad he will be in a couple eps.

true but maybe the events in the two-parter will be important for Atlantis' future ;)

and Marty G. will do the honors for the mid-season two-parter (Welcome back to Atlantis, Dr. Jackson).

Looks like Daniel's going to play a pretty big role in Atlantis season 5.

Yup, best place to bring a great character in... Jack was there for S3, Daniel for S5...

Poor Teal'c only has Midway...

...But it was an awsome ep so all is well :D

I am glad that Daniel will get there (and I don´t like crossovers!) because it makes sense (more than Carter). But it´s good that so far it looks only at the two-parter. I hope it won´t be any "last big mission of Daniel Jackson", with him as a main hero with SGA cast as support.

I noticed that Martin Gero should write it, which is cool imo, he is one of few authors who can write characters and SG generally, so I am hopeful.

He is perhaps an expert on matters relating to the Ancients... besides, Im pretty sure they will give him a good reason for appearing on Atlantis. After all, before the whole Ori problem, he was going to head there anyway until the ship left without him.

Oh yes, it drives me bonkers when people say he has nothing to do with Atlantis. Have they not seen parts of season 7? Prometheus Unbound? The pilot for Atlantis? The beginning of season 9 of sg1? The Pegasus Project? Sure, no mentions of Daniel wanting to go there or having any hand if looking for the darn thing there:S


I'm excited to see him there. And a few episodes would be perfect. I could never see him at Atlantis permanently, speaking characterwise. Because I'm pretty sure he'd be distracted by some other shiny thing in another part of the universe soon after.

FINALLY!! Thank you thank you THANK YOU, guys! Yes, I am Daniel-biased, but, PUH-LEASE!! Out of all the chracters from SG-1, Daniel is the one for which a visit TOTALLY makes sense! :)

glad to see him there, again hopefully this time it'll be for longer, and he'll discover yet something even more awesome, he's been ascended so I hope they play on that again.

Daniel will only be in two eps and I doubt that TBTB would bring him back if Atlantis gets renewed


Two episodes are better than none, I didn't think I would have any episodes to watch. :) As for bringing him back in season six? I doubt they could afford him!

yeah me too. and I'm very much looking forward to the mid-season two-parter :)

money's not the only reason imo. I just think TBTB don't want to bring too many SG-1 character over at the same time. Sam's base commander in s4 and we saw Teal'c in Midway and Daniel will be in s5. so maybe s6 might feature another visit from Teal'c or Sam (or even Jack ;))

Seing as Daniel is the only guy who can discover new technology in the Stargate Universe, we should deffinetly have him around.

Perhaps he might even find some furlings in the Pegasus galaxy.

I'm not quite sure I\'m, happy with it beign the mid-season finale. They tend to be very action/explosion oriented, even more than your regular Atlantis episode. I'd have prefered to see him in somethnig more character oriented... ah, well.

Ok, I took a deep breath and I have calmed down now. ;) I don't honestly think they would do that to him, either, but you never know. It would make sense to ME that since they worked out a deal with MS to come to set, they would want to take full advantage of it (like they did with RDA by putting him in 2 episodes of SG-1 and 3 of SGA last season during the time he was in Vancouver to film). No sense in worrying about it at this stage in the game! But, so help me.......:D

Yup, there is no way TPTB would get MS to the set just for something like a 5 min shot... Take 'Midway' as an example, they'll take full advantage of having Daniel there ;)

honestly I wouldn't worry. Jack was in The Return Part 1 and 2, we saw a lot of Teal'c in Midway and I bet they will use Daniel in the mid-season two-parter! it's probably the only time that he'll show up in Atlantis, there's no way it'll be the same as with Carson imo
