    Good episode.

    Seeing as how Canadian TV is airing Stargate Atlantis does this mean there will be no long summer mid-season break? Will it continue to air on Canadian TV like it did last season?

I certainly hope McKay found something out that could be useful in the future or else this episode will be one gigantic waste of my time.
    What healing abilities? There's been no mention of that. And I note that healing abilities are different to slowing the aging process.

    After episode 10 airs next monday their schedule shows reruns for at least 5 weeks after. http://www.themovienetwork.ca/starga...s/schedule.php

    On a sidenote, Space in Canada starts airing SG-1 Season 9 on Thursday November 10th and if they go straight through the should either air 1 day ahead of SciFi or 6 days behind.

    I had higher expectations for this episode. i mean why cant we at least get something out of it. A little dissapointed.

    We dont get any "intel", no ancients, no back story.

    Solid episode but ehh, i had wanted more.

    I especially liked Weir at the start. Funny.
    The rest of the ep was good, too.

    i can only agree with you. It was a dissapointment for me. So much talk about it but on the end nothing special... From 1-10 (best) i would rate it 4. i

    It looks like we will get the same pattern as last year (inleast on the east coast - iow those folks that get TMN). So it will likely air repeats for the first 10 episodes and then head straight into the back half in late November to mid December.


    Folks in the west receiving Movie Central will likely catch up or even pass the east coast in this time frame (Im rooting for this even if I cant receive MC).

    I know some people said that nothing came of this episode but the writers did say that things the team learned from this ep will come into play later in the season. That's one of the things that I like about SGA, after you rewatch an entire season you see that's the writers have been building on the story since the first ep.

    I'm tired, it's 2:12 am here in sydney. I have a small amount of things to say:

    1) The ancient first officer was a total babe. Move over heightmeyer, we have a new hottest babe that's been on atlantis. I think Rodney knew the score on that number. And i'm sure Sheppard did too (although I'm sure he was thinking of weir the whole time).

    2)um... I did'nt figure out the hyperdrive thing at all until pretty much they said it on the show. Pretty good IMO, I was wondering what the weakness is, but that's probably for a future episode.

    3) That ancient First Officer was HOT!

    4) Caldwell was a bit angsty, whinging all the damn time. He should just stfu for a bit and let them save the day.

    5) And they did'nt get anything other than an exploded Ancient ship, and some sort of "info" that the "wraith have a weakness", they seem to have a weakness regarding get shot with bullets, maybe that was the super info.

    6) Why the hell did they need to go on a "recon" operation when they were simply delivering the info BACK to atlantis. If they needed to pick it up, and it's so vital, you'd take your smallest\fastest ship, or your biggest\fastest warship, and then come straight back, not some middle of the road scout ship.

    7) The wraith. They apparently destroyed it the first time, what stopped them from blowing it to hell? I doubt the wraith was there from when they killed it to when they reactivated atlantis.

    8) How did they get into pods if the entire bridge was smashed. The bridge being smashed should indicate their got totally OWNED by the wraith, and probably would'nt have enough time to get into the pods to begin with.

    Why would the ancients need to know the "weakness" of the Wraith Tech when in fact their own tech is superior. Wraith cruiser hyperspace window looked awfully like the Daedalus hyperspace window.

    We also learn that they have two kinds of hyperdrive

    1. Interstellar-Aurora is equip with. It would take them months to get back to Atlantis.

    2.Intergalactic- similar to the Daedalus hyperdrives. I think the Asgard have better hyperdrives.


    Good episode, but it went so fast and never got to learn anything from the ancients.

    I think many people are missing the point.
    As a part of the 'finding out about the Ancient/Wraith war' story-arc or something similar, this episode didn't do the job. But it wasn't meant to. It was supposed to be a one-off, self contained episode - something that I've been sorely missing from Atlantis.
    Me, I enjoyed it. I picked up something wrong with the First Officer (who is hot!) early on, I liked that it was a virtual reality rather than the parallel reality touted in the promos, and you could see Caldwell getting more and more angsty as F.A.R.T. kept defying him, whihc probably won't bode well in the future.
    I stand by my original thought; it was a good, entertaining one-off episode of Atlantis.

    Just watched it and it was pretty good. Using GateWorld's Episode rating system, I'd rate it a **1/2 to *** (I can't choose between the two)

    Good parts:
    Ronon Watching the two guys playing chess
    Sheppard's team already ready for the mission
    The ending (the toast)

    The thing that I don'ty like about these eps, is whenever they come across some cool ancient tech you know it's eventually gonna get the **** blown out of it. Such as: 'Siege 1 & Trinity."

    Those scenarios are legendary in the SG universe & that annoys the hell out of me. A bit like Bond & his new car, You just know what's going to happen before it actually does.

    Also I'm sure Daedalus could have taken care of the two Cruisers & thus preserved the Aurora for a tad longer before more backup arrived. Essentially enough time to get access from the computers & also get Rodney & the Daedalus scientists filled in on the inner workings of Ancient tech from the Aurora crew by using the empty pods. Like Trinity I'm sure nothing of any real importance was gained from the whole experience.

    Lastly it would have been a far better ending to see some of the crew get revived & struggle to their posts on the bridge, if even only for a few secs. To see them go down fighting to the very end before taking themselves out in a self-destruction.

    Actually last year it premiered on November 8th, so if things follow like last year, it should premier on November 7th this year.

    In the infinite expanse that we occupy, whose to say that something's impossible?
