    Excellent episode, one question. Was it mentioned where the Daedlus and the Appollo were? Why did they not use one of those to initiate a quicker resuce of Sheppard?

    Best.episode.ever. And the ship survives. Seriously, those ships are no bigger than the Daedalus.

    pretty nice episode--I thought Larin was done for after the Wraith got her...I loved the meal at the end.

    Shepard--leaving out minor detail
    McKay--suspicious
    Ronon--grinning madly
    Teyla--rolling her eyes at her boys

    Good question though they might have been out of range.

    was this one of the eps where sam/amanda wasn't in it?

    i'm hoping, with this being such a sheppard centric ep, it'll help me grow to appreciate sheppard more.

    YES! Best ep of the season so far!! Can't wait to see them again-- would be interesting to see more races like them (space pirates)..SG-1 should havd had some races like the Travelers, and not like the TOLAN...

    Edit: Bleh, upon watching it again, I guess I'll have to agree with what seems to be the consensus that it was another predictable and badly written JM episode

    theres always next week!...

    ugh.. I was so excited for this episode. But to me:

    Travelers=Prometheus Unbound

    I feel like they are borrowing too many things from SG-1. Just new characters.

    The reason I was like "she can't be dead" is because they hadn't kissed yet (like in the episode promo).

    Those ships reminded me of Prometheus. Also, glad the ship survives, and, they can eventually repair it. I wonder though, why they did not offer to bring them to Atlantis?

    Good ep, though I expected the Travelers' ships to be much bigger. Loved the general story, though I think the dialogue was a bit cheesy at times.

    I missed the first 10 minutes of the show but from what I saw it is ridiculously lame. The last 10 minutes were stereotypical piss poor writing. Teyla gets the talk first line. Rodney gets to say I don't know and Ronan gets to say the brave yet not entirely smart line. I mean come on, does Shepard only use his little head to make a decision?

    And I know they like to make him into a humanitarian but he was taken hostage and decides to stun his tormentors instead of killing them on the spot. That was just plain dumb. They have to die because of the Wraith attack.... Such a lame copt out.

    Jill Wagner isn't the best a dialogue. IT got better as the ep went on.

    Nice. I liked it well enough, nothing super duper but MUCH better then I expected….maybe I just have low expectations.

    The leather girl was not as slutty as expected, in fact, she didn’t really strike me as slutty at all, and that I didn’t expect. Sheppard only leered a little so even he was behaving much better then expected.

    Too bad about the two traveler guys, I actually liked them.

    Nice to find out information on Ronan’s gun.

    Rodney was good in this well until the last scene. Ronan and Teyla looked suitably anxious and Loren did a good job as always

    Wraith had better hair then the previous ep this season.

    Sheppard acting like Ronan with the gun was funny.

    The closet scene was not as bad as I thought it would be. The TPTB required bad sex joke when they were going to take out the wraith was, well…bad but could have been worse.

    The drones were cool as always.

    Ooooo Laren got wraithed. I could see it coming only after she shut the door but otherwise it was an unexpected turn in the show. I was however, immediately thinking about how Shep was going to threaten the wraith into de-wraithing her. It went about how I expected, though I was pleasantly surprised that Shep let the wraith leave (even if it wasn’t tactically sound I think it’s important to show honor).

    Laren and Sheps behavior with a live wraith behind them was stupid….but at least Laren had a good reason….maybe Shep will learn his lesson.

    Good job with Teyla talking about negociation and fairly OK reason not to given by the others. Big old ataboy to Sheppard for actually managing to talk and establish and alliance and without any sex jokes. The dinner scene was nice until Mckay got annoying. I Did like Teyla’s eye roll though.

    Ultimately this was a MUCH better version of Prometheus Unbound. (yeah I just HAD to compare it to an SG-1 ep since someone else is likely to do it anyway )

    Aahhhh I see Homeslice55 beat me too it.. kudos!
    Joseph Mallozzi -"In the meantime, I'm into season 5 of OZ (where the show takes an unfortunate hairpin turn into "the not so wonderful world of fantasy")"

    ^^^ Kinda sounds like seasons 9 and 10 of SG-1 to me. Thor, ya got Aspirin?

    AGateFan has officially Gone Fishin (with Jack, Sam, Daniel, Teal'c) and is hoping Atlantis does not take that same hairpin turn.
