A new team of adventurers visits the lost city of the
Ancients and can't get back in Stargate Atlantis.

Exclusive from SCI FI Magazine, August 2004

By Thomasina Gibson

STEP THROUGH THE STARGATE, and this time, you might not be able to step back. That's the premise as the Stargate saga take the next step forward in Stargate Atlantis. On the original Stargate SG-1, the crew uses a Stargate to go on missions, but at the end of the day, always gets to come home to Earth. In Atlantis, however, they'll step through a gate and end up in another galaxy, in the lost city of Atlantis. And though they can travel through the gate to other places in the new galaxy, they won't be able to get back to our own galaxy ... or to Earth.

Developed by executive producers Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper, Stargate Atlantis moves away from an Earth-based military program to set sail under civilian command under the auspices of one of the planet's brightest tactical minds. She's accompanied by a group of highly accomplished individuals, each the best in their field. Together, the Atlantis team must defeat a gruesome enemy, forge new friendships ... and simply survive. Their success in all three of the above will dictate whether they live long enough to gather enough resources to return home. Wright couldn't be more proud of the newest Stargate baby and says, "Atlantis is the culmination of years of hard work by Robert Cooper, the rest of the Stargate production team and myself. I feel we've really done justice to the spirit of SG-1, whilst opening the gates to a completely different set of adventures."
