    Pretty cool ep, feel sorry for the crew though...

    This is a good one in that introduces a lot of new information that can be explored. For example the weakness in Wraith technology I thought was answered in S4's Spoils of War. It also shows how the first intoduction of Ancient ships and we see not only how Ancient ships but we learn how to operate. I have to wonder what the advantage of slow Ancient ships is. With only an interstellar hyperdrive I have to wonder what do they get more drones, better shields, etc? The reality program part did not interest me that much. Its an overdone concept. It was more of the foundation of new information we learned because of the reality program that interests me.

    Wow an ancient ship. Great story. It was very creepy in a way.
    I knew we had to see a really good looking Wraith.

    I didn't like much of this program except for the wraith. I didn't like the whole concept of AU in hybernation either, especially because team Atlantis wasn't treaten so greatly by these ancients...

    I liked the episode but it did have a lot of plot holes. The one thing I think is odd in general is the wraith and ancients were about even in tech. The wraith made up with numbers where they were out matched by tech. In 10k years wouldn't the wraith have grown beyond the ancients. The only beings on sci fi shows that ever advance are humans.

    Perhaps the fact they took OUT the ancients made them feel they don't need to advance any more.. so they stagnated till we came on the picture.

    oh wow, i didn't know there was a forum for this show. awesome.

    So this is my 5th time watching this show. and I must say every time i watch this type of episode I feel sad that the ship had to be destroyed.

    I love shows that go out of the box and think of the impossible. I so wish that Atlantis expedition would have salvaged the ship or at least backed up the virtual system. This way they would be able to communicate with the aurora ship and figure things out. I mean, this is outer space show. Yet we see too much earthly things. I wish we could even go farther out of the box and exploit more of Atlantis's glory.

    A stargate show atlantis 10000 years in the past. Would be awesome.

    Welcome, mike! (His first post.) Yeah, it was sad. There was so much the crew could have taught our people.

    At least the Atlantis expedition does eventually become familiar with (other) Aurora class ships. They even salvage equipment and adapt it to their own usess. (In one episode, we see an aurora-type virtual environment pod used on Earth.)

    I would love a series featuring the war between the Wraith & the ancient Lanteans.

    How was it that the crew of the Aurora in stasis forget they were in stasis and engage in a virtual world on the ship? A psychic virtual world where the person actually feels he is in a real world. A person can wonder if one's own life may be something like that. ;-)

    That is a good point even though it seems like a plot hole that they didn't know they were in statis I mean what exactly was the use of not knowing that? Then again maybe the wraith messed with the system in such a way that caused it?
