Just wondering if anybody know if daniel will at least appear in season 4 of atlantis...
if his not guess staring then im guessing that in the stargate movie continuum, when the sg-1 crew goes back in time... daniel might end up ascending and actually staying as an ascended being instead of coming back into human form

JM has said that they didn't have Shanks in mind for the 'big crossover episode'. Unless there'll be another episode, then it's unlikely Daniel will be in s4

Joe Mallozzi said on his blog that there are no plans at the moment for Daniel Jackson to appear on Atlantis. So it looks unlikely that he'll be in season 4 considering they have only one more episode slot to fill

I don't think anything has been planned, but Joe did have this to say about the subject:

Anonymous #6 writes: “If the Ori storyline is rapped up in the first movie then will you explain why Daniel wouldn't permanently take off for Atlantis?”

Answer: It would make sense for Daniel to visit Atlantis. If the right story comes along and Michael Shanks is game and available to make an appearance, we’d love to have him stop by.

Very unlikely that we will see Daniel in season 4. With only one ep slot to fill it won't be a crossover ep. We might see him in season 5 but definatly not season 4.

I concur. Daniel already joined another cast. Maybe one day we will see him again as Daniel Jackson.

I'd like them to move him over, but not have him be seen that often.

Say, for example, he pops out of his office/lab every once in a while to start off a new story.

:daniel: "I've been poking through the database and I found X that might help with Y..."

Then perhaps have him occasionally be in an episode a bit longer, depending on the situation.

In short, give him recurring guest star status, with 2-3 episodes a season or something.

I have nothing against him on Atlantis a few eps per season.

I always thought that it would be brilliant for Daniel to go to Atlantis, but not necessarily become a part of Sheppard's team, I always liked the idea of him sifting through the database analysing culture aspects of the ancients and things like that, or observing other Pegasus speecies. Keep him involved but swap his gun for an ancient lab. But give him that gun every once in a while.

He'd be in heaven!

But I don't know about incorporating him into the cast.

To be honest, Daniel seemed rather disillusioned with Atlantis after "The Pegasus Project". I get the impression he's seen everything he cares to in Atlantis at this point. If he did decide he wanted to spend more time there, I certainly wouldn't mind, but I wouldn't be surprised if that were not the case, at least, not for a while.

I think that was do to the fact that the Sangral wasnt on Atlantis and the fact that he now knows we are on our own. I still think he'd love the occasional trip.

Strange.. i got no such vibe from him..

I think the reason Daniel isn't still itching to get back to Atlantis is that he's still dealing with the Ori stuff, which is after all, his fault. Once that's taken care of, he'll probably want to go back.

If there is one character I want in SGA is Daniel Jackson. I want him with a full time part and to join Sheppard's team. This, however, will never happen because TPTB rushed and had to create a sister show to SG1 in a way that they sabotaged the "most qualified man on the planet".

Daniel needs to be the one to head Atlantis, not the hack Carter.

Well it would be nice to see Daniel in an episode or two but I don't think there is much chance. MS is more than likely going to be far too busy to fit it in.

I really do think that the time has come for the cast to move on, ten years is a heck of a time to be on a show.

Wow thats harsh. Daniel is in no way qualified to run Atlantis, he's even less qualified than Weir. Carter is the most qualified of the three.

This would be great

Answer: Will let you know once his deal has been closed.

I think Michael Shanks (Daniel) will cross-over. JM mentioned earlier that we won't see Mithcell, Jack or Vala in season 4.

It's either Daniel or Landry, TBH I'd love both.

Why not Mitchell?ALthough yes, would love to see Daniel do one episode as his talents aren't really duplicated as yet on SGA.

I wouldn't say more qualified than Weir but Carter is definitly more quaified to run the base then Daniel, she was running research in Area 51 at the start of season 9.

Why not Mitchell?

Because JM has already said so.

Also, I don't think it's Danny since JM has also said that, IF there is a story for him, and Michael is available, he'll be welcomed back. Sounds to me like that hasn't happened yet.

Carter is more qualified than Weir when it comes to Military matters and as the Military situation in the Pegasus has seriously deteriated a new, more Militaristic, approach is needed. This means that a Military officer, not a diplomat, is needed to be in Command of Atlantis.

After all do you know of any of Earths Military forces that would allow a Military base to be placed under the direct day to day command of a civilian, let alone a civilian that has never held high office within the Military, in a time of war?

Answer none that I can think of.

It would be amazing if Daniel went to Atlantis again;-) I really enjoyed the episode "The Pegasus Project", Daniel just belongs in Atlantis. It's probably his nirvana anyway...

So I keep my fingers crossed for the appearance of our favorite doctor.

Th day-to-day operations of the Atlantis base is under Weir's command yes but it seems thats as far as it goes. You have to remember Atlantis isn't a military base - it exists under the International Oversight Authority, its a research base, its primary aim is to discover new technologies, the miliary aspect came later. Weir was chosen for the job because she wasn't military, so she could act as a neutral party. Military personal would answer to the military first, the IOA second

However strictly speaking, in military matters Weir has little authority, this isn't something new either from the get go the Military were in charge of military matters. In season one Shepperd differed to her out of respect and in season two Weir had the full support of the IOA so she was able to influence military matters (having Sheperd promoted to Lt. Colonel for example). However as the IOA's trust in her erroded so did her influence with the military.

Exactly. Weir had command of the city and the civilian personell but that's about it. As far as any military decisions she had basically no say. Carter has more Military and Scientific experience however Weir has more diplomatic experience. In that respect Carter will have to learn as she goes. I love Daniel and would love to see him on a few eps, but definatly not as a commander.
