    Actually, I thought the only one that moved was the one on earth, since we basically have our computer do a manual dial to get around not having a DHD.

    The wormhole was cool... I still have my reservations about the light up gate.

    We also know the wraith darts have remote dialers too.

    Beckett's accent is Scotish.

    Fantastic episode. I might be hooked already. What a way to start the season for both series.

    Thumbs up to all characters, particularly Sheppard, Beckett, McKay, and Teyla.

    I wonder how old the Keeper was? Could she have existed back when the ancients were still around?

    Excellent Episodes. I believe that they may have cut things out.

    The kiss for one thing.

    Also, in some images, there was an image of Wraith running after the team... hmmm...

    I enjoyed the pilot. It is going to get sometime to get use to it. I will enjoy this show. I think Atlantis is going to do well once SG1 is off the air.

    Gosh. I have to confess I'm pleasantly suprised!
    I mostly avoided Atlantis spoilers, and pretty much ignored the fact it was coming. Even tried to have pretty low expectations (after all, what are the chances TPTB can come up with 2 great casts etc)???

    Well, I guess the answer is, pretty d_mn likely!
    I thought the cast had great chemistry - this is a biggie for me (I won't watch Enterprise cos I just don't feel the cast chemistry). They did a great job of standing as independent characters once away from the SGC, had witty, funny interactions (LOVE that Dr Beckett! - I'm confused - is that accent Scottish or Irish??).
    I wasn't convinced the Wraith would be a suitably menacing threat, but now I'm a convert (I can't wait to see how much time will be devoted to them, or if they'll only show up every now and then). The shot of all the wraith waking up was pretty spine chilling
    I like the way there's a larger number of people (ie. not just the dynamic between the main 4) - will be interesting to see how this plays out on a weekly basis.

    Anyway, enough babbling from me!
    Kiwigater gives Atlantis a big thumbs up and will be watching next week eagerly!!! (much to her suprise )

    Even though the new wormhole is cool, I still like the old one better (The full one, like, the one they showed in the movie). It just had more going on and it had that cool light swisher thingy.
    Thor: The Asgard would never invent a weapon that propels small weights of iron and carbon alloys, by igniting a powder of potassium nitrate, charcoal and sulphur.

    I hope we get to see the inside of a Wraith dart one day.

    Actually, MANY of the things in the lowdown were not in the pilot... maybe they'll be in 38 minutes.

    They are most likely going to hijack one, just as they did death gliders.

    So why are there 9 chevrons? To account for....!?

    Beckett: Why dont I make friends like that?
    McKay: *eating something* You need to get out more
    Beckett: Out of the Galaxy. Isnt that out enough?

    I hope so. Since the Ancient's legacy will always be the stargate network, I'm willing to bet that they put it in the central structure.


    But the gate room is so small that it's probably either at the base or very top.

    I think she was there when the ancients were there. She recognised the Ancient technology Sheppard had. SO, maybe she was around when the Ancients were.

    Fly by quote from Lt. Ford: (only heard this on second viewing of Atlantis)

    Lt. Ford: (talking to some scientists as the camera sweeps by them) Does ANYone know what language these people are speaking?!

    The way he said it was just funny.

    It couldn't be at the top because the jumper bay is above it.
