They was a ST Voyager Ep called 'Life Line'. Zimmerman was dying and they send the EMH Doctor to the Aplha quadrant to save him.

Maybe Weir is dying and someone comes to her aid..................Asgard.......or maybe even Accession. Oh no. How about she does a Daniel Jackson and disappears for one session just coming in and out just he did in session 4,5 or 6. Can’t remember.

I don't think that Adrift will finish off the whole lost in space scene. Lifeline will most likely be a special something that enables them to survive. i.e Mckay's brilliant plan or a ZPM somehow.

Ok so the first theory I've had for this episode, and the one I'm still sticking with, is this:

The ancient machine that McKay got zapped by in ToR is used again in some way to heal Elizabeth.

Simple theory and by no means do I think this is the whole episode, but titles can refer to several different events in the episode, and this could be one of them.

Rodney used the machine and had no control over what happened to him, so maybe if Shep used it he would be better at controlling it because of his stronger ATA gene?
Or maybe they directly effect Elizabeth with it or something?

I don't know. I just love that machine and want it to be used again just to show if they've learnt anything more about it. I honestly think it could prove to be valuable in the plots.

As for other aspects of the episode...Well could have something to do with getting found lost in space and saved.

op could mean one of two things - surgery operation or military operation. JM didn't specify which. If it's surgery, I'm going with Keller operating on Wier, but I don't see how they can drag that out for an entire ep. If military, then I agree that Adrift doesn't wrap up the whole lost in space stuff, and they get some sort of boon to get them out of trouble. The third possibility is that both types of ops are going on at the same time, I suppose. :D

That's probably it. The whole scene with Keller and Weir in "First Strike"- the scene where Keller halfheartedly tries to resign- sort of seems out of place unless Weir really DOES put her life in Keller's hands.

Afterward, while Weir may seem fine...

It could be the Odyssey, but I doubt it will be carrying any ZPMs. They made it pretty clear that Earth only has two, and they need both of them. (I haven't seen s10 of SG-1, so that may have changed, but they made it clear in SGA that this was the case). If it is a military op, I think it is a lot more likely that it involves the Apollo and something that Shep/McKay/Zalenka have cooked up.

Hello!!

I hav an idea. I've watched the trailers for season 4, and something just occurred to me. Could they attempt to steal a ZPM or something similiar? And that this could lead to Wier disappearing somewhere?
The only place to steal such item being the asuran homeworld? And that this could be their lifeline?
I could be grasping at straws, but it is possible....Or it could be something that they do for another episode, leading to carter coming over and wier going?

From the new David Hewlett interview:


GW: After seeing "First Strike," it seems pretty clear that the Replicators are here to stay. They're back in Season Four.

DH: They are indeed. Yes, the Replicators. Well, it's kind of hard to kill a self-replicating nanite, as we've discovered. And there's a neat twist on that at the beginning of the season as well where we use a bit of the old Replicator tech for good as opposed to evil. And I think [it] establishes a very interesting possible character arc for one of our regulars.

Yeah, the Replicator stuff is really good. And again, having David Ogden Stiers on set is a pleasure as well.

GW: Yeah, Oberoth is back!

DH: Yes, Oberoth is back. And lots more hands in foreheads and things. And twists on that as well. It's funny. Joe [Mallozzi] and Paul [Mullie, executive producers] were really excited about, I think, playing with the established stuff. Leading people to believe things are going to be like they were, and then throwing them a curve. There's some great use of that, especially with the Replicator stuff, where the Replicators are getting stuff thrown back at them that they're not expecting. We fight back in weird and devious ways. I enjoy that.

---

GW: What would you say has been the most fun or the most challenging work that you've done so far this year?

DH: I think it's coming up on Monday. Monday we've got nine and a half pages of Torri and I in the Puddle Jumper, screaming out commands on how to reprogram Replicator mainframes. I think that will be the most challenging part.

You're killing me! Poor Elizabeth!

Carter showing up in a spaceship would seem ok, is she manages to find them that easy.

It would be nice to see the Asurans getting a good turn of the situation, hopefully without killing anyone we care about in the process.

About the title, I can only think about someone's lifeline, and this ep is after First Strike and I can assume that the Asurans would follow them, then it seems possible that it would be about Weir's lifeline? or metaphorically, Atlantis' lifeline?

I think I will stop guessing for now, it's no use to cheer me up.

I think that Weir gets injured so badly that they have to use nanites to help her. The only problem is they're Asuran nanites so they have that violence. Weir starts trying to kills people. She's superstrong because of the nanites and heals impossibly fast as well. Weir fights the violent urge as best as she can, but McKay still has to race against time to reprogram that base code. He ends up failing and Weir either joins the Asurans or they jet her into space.

Bits from the new Martin Gero interview:


MG: Well it's tough because it's early. Obviously I have a handle on "Adrift." "Adrift" and "Lifeline" I'm really, really happy with. I think Carl did an amazing job on "Lifeline" and I feel pretty confident behind the work in "Adrift." We have a little bit more money this year for the show, which was kind of a surprise because there is a great cost-saving from doing two shows at once and we thought we'd probably take a hit this year. But MGM has coughed up some money, and of course we're running the movies side-by-side.

So I know that there was a concern that the production value of the show would go down. In fact it's gone up, and we're able to spend the money we would only be able to spend once or twice a year on episodes fairly consistently. Once every three episodes we have a pretty giant episode. So "Adrift" and "Lifeline" are massive, massive episodes.


EDIT: More:


MG: My favorite part about Season One was how isolated they were. We just wanted to recapture that a little bit. That's what the first two episodes do. And it makes you do incredibly risky and stupid things. And that's what "Lifeline" is about.

Some interesting stuff about this episode in David Hewlett's interview in TV Zone. You can read my full transcript here (http://forum.gateworld.net/showpost.php?p=7036069&postcount=2) but I'll paste the bits relevant to this ep below:


At the end of First Strike, Colonel John Sheppard (Joe Flanigan) decides the only way to save Atlantis is to fly it into hyperspace. Although they eventually manage to elude the Replicator weapon, the city inadvertently ends up lost when it returns to normal space. As a result, the Atlantis expedition spends the fourth season opener Adrift and the following episode Lifeline not only looking for a new home, but also dealing with a deadly new enemy as well as the 'loss' of their leader, Dr. Elizabeth Weir (Torri Higginson).

"This was another of those weird saying goodbye moments like we had last season with Sunday and Carson Beckett," notes Hewlett. "We're essentially saying goodbye to Torri and the Weir character as we know it."


The actor continues, "As episodes go, I have to say these," Adrift and Lifeline, "are some pretty neat ones. Again, visual effects-wise they're huge, and they also set the tone for the rest of the year.


Following Dr Weir's unexpected departure, Stargate SG1's Colonel Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping) arrives on Atlantis to take over the running of the base, much to McKay's chagrin. "I think it really complicates everything for my character," says Hewlett. "I sound so serious about it, but it's his concern that makes it so funny and fun to watch. McKay honestly believed he was going to be in charge. The chain of command went Weir, Sheppard and then McKay. He had an argument about this with the Caldwell character in a Season Two story [The Long Goodbye]. In it, McKay was like, 'This is a science base and I'm in charge when Weir and Sheppard are out of commission.'

"So this time, as sad as McKay is to lose Weir, he sort of assumes that he's the one who's taking her place," continues the actor, "and when Carter shows up it's a huge shock to him. He's like, 'This is my base. I'm the pro here who answers the questions, not you.'


With Atlantis isolated from Earth at the start of Season Four, McKay felt like he was the go-to guy. Now he's working with someone who he knows is a challenge to him, both intellectually and just from a position of power."

**Speculation/possible spoilers for 4x02 "Lifeline"**
I remember seeing a short clip of season 4 where the prototype hyperspace generator for the puddle jumper had been installed, and McKay was briefing someone on it. So my thoughts are that Sheppard takes McKay and a few others to Asuras, steals a ZPM or three and take it(them) back to Atlantis.

Col. Sheppard (Joe Flanigan) takes a team to try and steal a ZPM from the Replicators.

I was reading through a couple of old threads earlier on & came across one which predicted they would try to steal a ZPM from the Asurans on their planet...way, way back in Feb.

A way to save Atlantis after First-Strike (http://forum.gateworld.net/showthread.php?p=6295629&highlight=lifeline#post6295629)

If it's true, then I wonder how they'll actually be able to get in & take hold of a ZPM. If shields are raised, then they'll be unable to beam any out. Apollo would probably be obliterated by Drones or energy weapons if it went in orbit again. The only real way I can see them doing it is by sneaking aboard via a cloaked PJ then using a small team to get one. Weir maybe gets captured during the mission & is forced to stay behind which explains her lack of action in Atlantis for the rest of the year.

Although I'd actually find that hard to believe that they could sneak aboard an Asuran city or ship, then move about freely without being spotted or detected by any Asurans or sensors that were operating inside.

A long shot is Carter actually manages to finish the satellite weapon, she brings it through to them. They deploy it & kill a large number of them off. Allowing them time to get in & grab a ZPM or two. They then quickly adapt & makes themselves immune again!

Actually they're not, some of the more expansive shots are only partial renders, they lack a lot of the detail from the final stages of a full render (I have a degree in CGI). They're probably in for timing purposes so the ep can move onto the later stages of production such as the foley (sound fx) and scoring/music, and will be replaced by the finished render when its ready.

So it looks like Weir is healed and goes along on the mission to the Asuran base. Why I wonder? It doesn't make sense that she would go on this kind of mission. I hope there's a good explanation, otherwise it will just seem convenient. Also, it looks like Shep and the team are forced to leave her behind. I really hope this sets up some serious angst for the team, especially Shep and Rodney who've been the closest to her. Shep's always been especially focused on not leaving anyone behind, so I hope this sets up an darker emotional arc for him, dealing with that. And some guilt for Rodney too maybe? He and Elizabeth have always been close, so definitely hope there's some lasting fallout from this.

Hmm.

Weir is healed by using her nanites from 3.06. Nanites repair her injuries and she became half-replicator. Than she goes on the mission 'couse she can connect herself into Asuran conciousnes. She helps team to get the ZPM but things get more complicated...

Hopefully he will stay there and we can still get the classic Dr lee/Sam moments (sadly no Daneil/Dr lee moments). Also i can now imagine some Dr Lee/Mckay and DR LEE/Zelenka (word it carefully) classic times! OR all 4 of them at it at once! (talking.... about science) as in Sam vs Dr Lee vs Mckay vs Zelenka. With Sheppard watching! It should be great!

that was my immediate thoughts about it too. very matrix-y indeed. At the end of ep 02, when oberoth said that they were already underway with fixing her; making her better. I bet they're going to try to turn her against atlantis. *sigh* Poor Weir. It's a shame only one of the writers really know how to write her. And even though she's going to be a recurring character, it's not like it's ever going to go back to the way it was before. She'll be just like Michael, that kind of character, that shows up now and again. *sad*

Actually they're not, some of the more expansive shots are only partial renders, they lack a lot of the detail from the final stages of a full render (I have a degree in CGI). They're probably in for timing purposes so the ep can move onto the later stages of production such as the foley (sound fx) and scoring/music, and will be replaced by the finished render when its ready.

I tell you what, I'm going to have a fascinating time doing a side-by-side comparison of both leaked eps when the final production versions are aired. Very interesting to just listen to the unfinished eps and hear how the sound differs so much (doing a degree in music tech here so that's what interests me ;)), when you become so immersed with the suspension of disbelief you forget half the magic is created in post!

Summary

The atlantis shield is weak and risk to fall.
Rodney decide to stole a ZPM to Asuras with A jumper equiped with the hyperdrive created in season 3.
-Jumper with sheppard,weir(who has saved because Rodney has reactived the nanite in weir) and ronnon go to asuras, they are surprised because the city is ever rebuilded.
In orbit of a pegasus planet the apollo take lee and carter arrived by the midway station to refind city. during the mission on asuras the team is located and replicator pursue them. But weir succed in to stop oberoth with spirit probing and win time, the team find a ZPM but they must leaving without Weir who has trapped by Oberoth. The jumper flee on space but an asuran-ship (new class of battle ship mixed of aurora(form) and jumper(propulsor) purchase this.
At this moment the appollo leaves of hyper espace and attack the ship to take the jumper. The appolo succed in to escape and go to atlantis. The ZPM is installed and the power of shield has rebecame OK, A new planet is found a and Sheppard make land up the city (the land is impressionnant, and create a tidal-wave). The new planet has 5 moon.
The new planet has 5 moon.
-the land up of atlantis is impressive, with a tidal-wave ejected by the city

Special thanks to Sheppard's Delight for scanning the whole thing! :D

Oh, big surprise! They totally missed an oportunity to land Atlantis on a different planet.
Why didn't we get a rumble landing on some Dune-like planet for example? Atlantis in a harsh desert would have been cool, and not too hard to render, CGI wise. Besides, they have some sand dunes not far from the place where they film, and it's not like staff used real water that much during the first three seasons.

Once again, a missed oportunity. I mean, hello? They have the biggest and best excuse at hands to change the scenery, and they serve us with... the same reheated stuff?

Oh, no, wait, the planet has 347 moons now.

Besides, do ZPMs grow on trees on Asura? Cause it seems rather easy to find one, approach it, steal it and flee.

Actually, I think it has been said that it is harder to land on ground, and easier to land on water. As for ZPMs, lets just say it takes a lot to power a megacity.

If you mean the Richmond Sand Dunes, there's a reason why we haven't seen it very often since Moebius: it's slowly disappearing due to factories and warehouses being built there. Believe me, I live about 20 minutes away by car. It's in no shape to stand as a big-ass desert surrounding Atlantis.

Oh, and I thought it's actually pretty smart of the Atlantis expedition to land on a water planet again, given that, you know, the city'll actually sit upright instead of tilted and perhaps moving like a top since the bottom of the city is not flat. And, of course, crash landing on land is generally more deadly than crash landing on water...don't quote me on that though.

No, I'm not surprised that they would land on water again - I expected that. But I was hoping the planet would look different. I think even Joe Flanigan said in his interview that he was a little disappointed that the new planet wasn't more different, more exotic or more dangerous or something - I'll have to look up the exact quote.

Come on. The city has been lying on a growing ice bed for eons.
And sand is the most fluid of solid grounds. Just need to find a place more or less flat.

Huh, it's not protected by the Unesco or something? Is it all for the money?

Anyway, like I said, can you cite me even one single scene where we saw a large surface of real water that was supposed being around Atlantis, when they were on the first planet?
As far as I can remember, it has always been CGI.

Please. The writing has been so horible, the plotholes/devices so numerous, huge and embarassing, that any stupid excuse could have been enough to land that flying crap in a sand desert. Like, you know, using the stardrive's ejecta to level a place, make a big nice hole underneath, and land the city there. Besides, it really has to be the most stupid flying city design to date if it's actually incapable of landing on a flat and solid surface.

By the way, was it really necessary to land the city? Couldn't they leave it in high orbit. Okay, it would pump a little bit more energy for the fake gravity - but they got a ZPM, that's peanuts - and the advantage is huge: ability to fly away as soon as wanted.

But WHY would the expedition risk this (and waste extra energy into flattening a desert?!) when they can just land on water again?! To entertain you?!

Besides, they can always sink the city again (for whatever reason) if they land on water.

You are right and it has been however they use stock shots mostly which saves money. They make new scenes when it is needed. Sand dunes are never even it wouldn't be plausible for Atlantis to land on solid ground and it isn't meant to exist on solid ground. It has always been on Water.

Besides, it really has to be the most stupid flying city design to date if it's actually incapable of landing on a flat and solid surface. In your opinion, the writting is far from horrible. They built Atlantis to exisit mainly on an Ocean environment and most worlds have at least enough ocean for them to land on.

No your incorrect. It would drain the ZPM really fast. As Mckay pointed out the shield isn't designed to run constantly which it would have to in orbit. It makes more sense to land.

While we're on the subject of Atlantis and where it lands, what about (Lifeline)the Asuran cities on their homeworld? Were they on water too? What about the abandoned city from Tower? That was buried under land, not water. It does seem awfully silly to create this magnificent city that can travel between planets, but can only land on large bodies of water. But hey, in the end Atlantis makes it back to water and they're only cut off from Earth for what, a couple of days? Soft reset, emphasis on soft...

That MW CGI gate was terrible too, because it was wide. They should decide how big is the gate. Only two people can go through the ring in normal case...

I like that they are trying to make CGI gates and this solution is cheaper than move a big set to every forest, but they should find the correct proportion. I've wrote some message earlier to JM about the only eight chevron stargate (Midway Station in Return, Replicator stargate satellite in First Strike etc.) and such stargate, which have two side have glyphs (like Inferno gate), so I hope he won't let them make such mistakes again. :o

Please tell me you didn't register on this site to just tell us that. That would be very...sad.

Nope. He registered just to post an illegal question about where he could download the eps from... :rolleyes:

DUDE what the heck!? If your gonna post spoilers like that then put them in spoiler tags!!! And if your not gonna watch the series anymore because of a few leaked copies of unifinished episodes, then thats your loss.

And a stupid one. His post makes no sense as the complete eps will look better duh!

I've watched them, but am not talking until it airs, purely because of that. The discussion/spec, is a bit moot on here ow and on the Adrift thread. I've watched it and don't want to click on the spoilers :lol:

Or we could ignore what's in the spoilers, as they're actually spoilers :lol: and those that haven't seen it can keep speculating. Not a great solution, granted, but it might be workable. :o

I think he just posted a something that would get people stirring.We get posts(and threads)like that all the time on the supernatural board and it's by people who have just joined, posted something to really rile the fans up with, and then leaves the boards.

Four people are coming through the gate next to each other? Ok, 4 adult can stand in a puddler jumper, so it isn't impossible, but somehow this whole scene is a bit weird to me, but this gate is much better than the gate from "Lifeline". I hope they will change the color of wormhole too. ;)

Just finished watching lifeline and I was thinking why the Replicator base code to fight the wraith was turned off. I was thinking that it could be that the Replicators thought that the best way to defeat the wraith was to kill all the humans (there main food source) and that’s why they made the virus to kill just humans. What do you think?

I agree with Alipeeps, but I also think what would have worked would have been putting *Spoilers for Lifeline* in the thread title so people who didn't want to see spoilers for this episode would have steered clear. Then you wouldn't have to have the info in spoiler tags.

Of course that is the only possible solution as has been speculated a few times since 'Progeny' aired. In S1, we saw it kill all humans that it came into contact with, yet if they had the ATA gene, then they would be unaffected by having it in their system. So it has to be the Lanteans found out they were destroying humans throughout the galaxy, then they were forced to go to Asuras & wipe them out.

If the Asurans don't bother with humans & suddenly only attack the Wraith. Then the writers have made one of their biggest screw-ups ever in the history of Stargate. The Lanteans were losing the war, went to Asurans & tried to destroy all the nanites. Yet all they had to do was hit a button to turn on their primary mission function & they went out & killed all the Wraith off. Instead they forgot to actually activate it & fled the galaxy with tails between their legs. It had to have been turned on originally by them. The Lanteans seen humans were being killed to starve the Wraith out, they then turned it off & went to wipe out the Asurans to make sure it never happened again.

If the Asurans don't attack any humans & only concenrate on the Wraith, then it's a major, major, major screw-up on the writers part. I honestly don't think they'd be stupid enough to let this slip past them & so I beleive that we'll see the Asurans attack human worlds, forcing the Wraith & humans to work together.

how many times will people repeat this??? IT IS OBVIOUS THAT "ATLANTIS-SEASON FOUR" CONTAINS SPOILERS. *mod snip*:confused::rolleyes::rolleyes:

A) GateWorld RULES are that plot information of episodes not yet seen in syndication must be either spoiler tagged or have spoiler warnings in the post title in ANY THREAD OTHER THAN THE OFFICIAL EPISODE DISCUSSION THREADS.

B) This plot information refers to episodes which have not even aired yet officially and GateWorld has decreed that the same rules apply - if not even more so - with regard to discussing the plots of these episodes.

C) Just because people want to read spoilers and speculation about upcoming eps, does not mean that they want to be exposed to detailed discussion of plot points by people who have already seen the episodes.

D) That's what the spoiler tagging system is THERE for, so that people can choose to avoid information they don't wish to see.

E) It's called consideration for other users... not everyone wants or enjoys the same level of spoilers.. and it's better to err on the side of caution and spoiler tag things rather than risk ruining things for people who didn't want to know *quite* that much spoiler info thanks...

Redhooks
September 25th, 2007, 09:54 AM
I think it all has to do with the level of spoilers. It is one thing to speculate on the episodes based on released spoilers, but I disagree with you when this person was talking about a specific episode that has not been shown yet except through leaked review videos. I have no problem going into the season 4 folder and look at speculation of an episode, but this info was directly from the episode and sounds like a huge plot point.
Edit: I see Alipeeps beat me to it and said it much better than I did.

I agree although...

Weir is suppose to be in "This Mortal Coil" and since she was captured by the Asurans in "Lifeline", maybe she has a hand in the war against them.

I also wonder about the Travelers and if they might fight in this one, because the Asurans could destroy them more easily than the Wraith, at this point.

Maybe it'll be Tauri-Wraith-Travelers vs Asurans in the galactic battle!
