    From the predictable double-agent, to the predictably useless beaurocrats, to McKay turning into a white Chris Tucker, this episode pulled all the same punches Stargate has been pulling for over nine years, in extremely humdrum fashion.

    And the wraithe threat continues to be overrated by the characters. The show has not convinced me that the wraithe are a huge threat to earth. A hive ship might be able to decimate a small village community with medieval technology, but a planet with six billion people, missiles and warheads, and fighter jets reinforced with Asgard technology? I am completely unconvinced that the wraithe would manage to kill more than a few thousand people tops, and yet, the characters talk like they were when Anubis was descending on the planet.

    The only good part about the episode was Landry's chat with Weir, and that had nothing to do with the action of the episode.

    I liked Atlantis when they were marooned far away with no consistant communication with Earth, and really on their own. Now I just don't care. I'm not sure I'll watch Atlantis again.

    Good ep. It absolutely sucks that the Orion was destroyed. That the worst allied ship to be destroyed since .... well ever. I hate the producers because of this, I demand another Aurora-class ship, then I like the producers again.

    Actually, as of yet we don't know whether the Queen is dead.

    Spoiler:
    Andee Frizzell is signed on to do the next episode. Of course, that doesn't mean anything

    I thought this was a wonderful episode, though sometimes the acting smact as a little strained. But I am certainly looking forward to future episodes!

    I am disappointed that the Orion was destroyed...very disappointed, but I did enjoy the episode otherwise. It was good to see the Daedalus kick some ass in a more convention firefight for once.

    the Orion blew up T_T we have what had it for 2-3 episodes and it already goes *boom* gah


    atleast Major Lorne got to command it before it got destroyed...



    but the highlight of this episode for me would be michael

    I love his character and have high hopes for him in the future

    Agreed.

    But that drone launch on the part of the Orion made it one hell of a great episode.

    AMAZING EPSIODE!! I didnt mind that much that the orion went boom, at least we got to see it fire first I knew that ship wouldnt last long. I'm glad that micheal is a good guy now, should be interesting. The orion may be gone but now we have a hive ship!

    yeah it sucked to see Orion get destroyed but it did a good job at kicking some wraith ass. I kinda figured that this was going to be a two-part episode but 3-part? That's awesome. I like the fact that at the end they ended with sheppard's face as the to be continued credit came up. i thought that michael looked pretty cool and that he was helping sheppard and the humans turn the wraith on the other hive ship into humans.

    I really enjoyed this episode, though McKay really got on my nerves. Also not happy that
    Spoiler:
    the Orion was destroyed. Though they did gain a hive ship.


    It also raised some very interesting questions.
    Spoiler:
    What will they end up doing to the now-human Wraith? If Michael ends up sticking around, how is he going to be fed?


    Overall, I liked it. The few things I disliked were outweighed by the many things I liked. Cool battles and exploding ships a plus. Might only have to wait until next week for my questions to be answered.

    That was one of the best parts of the episode, I loved watching the drones launch and evade the darts and then swarm around the hive ship. We needed more of the Orion!!

    Over all I enjoyed the episode, had a lot of good action and set the stage for some good story threads throughout the season.

    In my opinion, when the Wraith turned human said hello, did anyone think, did this guy just step out from a Lord of the Rings set into the Atlantis set?

    BTW, loved the throne. Mckay should sit in it.

    Quick observations:

    Overall a nice episode. Weir was exceptional, showing how good a leader she is, defending herself on Earth. Kudos to Torri for bringing life and fire to this character!

    Most everyone was excellent, especially Caldwell. Good to see Lorne. McKay getting rattled on the Wraith ship and Zelenka flustered on the Orion. Those two are so much alike! *Hugs them both*

    One part I especially liked was seeing Weir and Teyla working in the beginning and Teyla showing her concern when Weir had to return to Earth. Little scenes like this should have been occurring since the beginning - showing these two leaders supporting each other. It was nice to see, short as it was.

    The downside? Shep's kirking cr*p continues. The writers may think this is funny, but they don't realize just how much this turns off a lot of fans.

    No, well, sort of. The guy looked exactly like the brown haired young elf escorting the Elf princess to the ships to flee the land. You know, the one that asked Elf princess if she was alright while she was on horseback.

    And yes, he did. I swear by it. If and when we get screenshots, I'll post an image.

    I wanted to see Weir give the reins of Atlantis to Tayla. The scene was totally set up for that. It would show just how much Weir trusts Tayla after all this time. Anyone remember when Janeway gave Chakotay the bridge?

    I think that was pretty much the situation. It looked like Teyla had control. And did anyone see Teyla with the tablet pc! Hot!!!
