View Full Version : Atlantis on it's own

BEWARE SPOLIERS...





Lots of people are speculating Weir being killed off, and Carter taking over, and the series diving off into a completely horrible scifi abomination.

I don't think so, on the other hand.

Atlantis has the potential to last for many more seasons; perhaps to 7, or 8; and then there's the yet undetermined third series, so who knows.

Now that Atlantis is "alone", I feel the writers can do much better on Atlantis (which would be hard, as I think they've done AMAZING so far).

Weir won't be killed off; simply reduced. She won't be in every episode, allowing the team to do more off world things, and Carter's coming on for God knows what -- but only 14 shows! So maybe in season 5, Weir will come back? After all, she probably needs time to recover from that friggin' energy beam. She'll stick around...

Plus, they've now added elements of the airforce and IOA into Atlantis, opening more Earth based plots; and there's still more of the city to explore, the Genii to deal with, and the Wraith!

No, Atlantis won't end. It seems the first three seasons were just build up, with no direction. Now that there's so much plot and ideas to feed off of, I think Atlantis will sky rocket into its best seasons yet.

My only concern was that they killed off Beckett. Bad move, writers.

Anyone else agree?

I doubt she’ll get killed of. Just do a ‘Daniel Jackson' what he did in SG-1
Session 5. Disappear then show up once or twice in that session

She’ll be back for session 5 I think. I hope no no..............I pray.

She better be back...........................or I’m switching off.

I think that they will all be on the show.

I'm just afraid that it's going to be a military person running Atlantis.

Militarizing Atlantis would be a terrible idea. If you take the example of Seaquest, it started out with a more civilian/scientific focus. By season 3 it become military focussed and did not prove popular with fans (canned after 13 eps)

of course it could be argued that the same thing was done with Atlantis, taking a military focussed show and making a civilian focussed spin off. Personally, I like that there is a civilian in charge.

I totally agree with you. I can see that happening too. I don't see how Weir can go from being a main part of the story to be a reccuring character and being killed off or replaced. So no I totally agree with you.

I really doubt that will happen. I can't see them going that route.

I have enjoyed the first three seasons so far and I think that S4 is going to be great.

IMO I think that Atlantis will be militarized for a short time just because of the predicament that they left themselves in, in the finale. I also think that once Weir gets back on her feet she will once again take over.

I agree. That sounds possible.

It's definitely possible. I just hope that's what TPTB do with it. Personally, I really like Weir. I'd hate it if she was permanently reduced on the show. It's bad enough with Beckett gone.

I like Weir too and hope thats not the case but if it is I can live with it if done well.

Woot, I'm not the only one. Another thought occured to me with the militarization issue; perhaps it's an overall season 4 plot, which could be why Weir is being reduced, and once it's straightened out, she could come back as a civilian leader. The struggle for control of Atlantis could open lots of really good story lines, both on Earth/Earth relations, and Pegasus relations, as the military may make haste decisions...

(Like the last episode of season 3...never piss off the Asurans).

agree. :indeed:

i love both atlantis and sg1. i am disappointed that sg-1 has ended and will continue to watch atlantis. i dont know why they killed beckett off. we are trying to get him back.
i dont think carter will be taking over either. as you have said weir will need to recover after that energy beam.

Also, if the military really will fight for control of Atlantis, or takes control, she'll need to be on Earth pleading her case!...perhaps some O'Neill scenes? :P

Whistful thinking. But still. She can't be on Atlantis if the military takes over, she'll be on Earth recovering and fighting for her rights.

Give them a matter replicator , then SGA will be self sufficient for ammunition


SG1 unending spoiler

One of the resaon SG1 was held back on advance weapon was because they want make the show like the real world, the governement keeping everything secret , only in the last episode of SG1 , the Asgard gave them all their technologies.

The beaming tech can convert into a matter replicator, The SGA still require Earth for supply of bullet,it is lucky their ammunition were able to last a yr until they re-establish contact with Earth.

Give them a matter replicator , then they can be sufficient for food , ammunition ,C4 and etc.

I wonder what happen if they have the Asgard dampening field, the one they use to prevent explosion inside their ship.
Dr Beckett was kill by the exploding Tumor, if he was operating inside the Asgard dampening field , then may be he could survive and SGA could the Ancient device to create exploding tumor again.
My point is that SG1 has ended, SGA should be allow to have the Asgard tech and add them to the Ancient tech .

I seriously doubt the IOA would want Atlantis under military jurisdiction. So if it is a arc it eould be short not season wide IMO.

I think something which may be somewhat of a risk but could be a nice way is to have Atlantis splinter from Earth so its two totally different factions but first there would have to be a major disagreement to cause the fracture/splinter and if the writers don't want it anymore there would have to be a way to fix it

like maybe they find Atlantis' ZPM factory or find the schematics for the Aurora class ship or another Atlantean ship and are able to build them (wouldn't be as good as the Aurora or Orion but still its an Ancient design ship more capable then the Earth/Asguard hybrids)

One problem, Earth could still recall the team by force through the deddy or Apollo unless the entire team agrees to splinter includding the deddy's crew and apollo's.

An interesting idea to be sure. From some of the things that were said in First Strike like ... Col. Ellis thinking Sheppard should be leading Atlantis. Weir expressing her worry about her position as leader of Atlantis to Teyla it seems like they could be going in that kind of an arc. I'm not sure about it being season-wide but I can definitely see them tackling it a bit more in-depth in an early season episode. Or maybe it could be season-wide with it a constant in the background. With Weir hurt from the beam and her need for recovery time there could be a struggle for control of the city going on while the team has to continue to go out through the Stargate.

And I agree that Atlantis has a lot of life left in. Hopefully they'll prove that with season 4. It was always meant to stand by itself so I'll be interested to see how it does on it's own.

OHh, the dadelus and apollo along with atlantis, splintering... that gives me some nasty thoughts.

Thats the only way the splintering would work IMO and it could be a nice dark turn for the show.
