    Chevron Season 5 episode tidbits/discussion/speculation (potential spoilers)

    Might as well get the ball rolling

    http://josephmallozzi.blogspot.com/2...r-30-2007.html

    And yet, espite the crankiness, I was able to partake in some first-class spinning this afternoon. Didn’t get as much accomplishe as I would’ve liked but Paul and I had our hans full with other non-creative issues (scheduling, eals, an, of course, lunch). Still, we do have about eight notions in the works including Marty G.’s old-school story (“How ol school?”you may ask. Well is season one ld enough for youuuuu?”

    Back on the work front, we are slowly making progress on those season five stories. Veeeery sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowly. Every time we sit down to discuss, something comes up. Scheduling. Deals. Another mix! Actually three great mixes of late: Spoils of War (So what is the difference between the silent masked wraiths and the chatty ones? Ohhhhhhh, I see.), Be All My Sins Remember’d (Awesome. This one boasts the greatest visual effects sequences the show has ever done. Mark is going to be hard-pressed to top this one.), Miller’s Crossing (With that incredibly angsty McKay-Sheppard scene.) Yep, distractions galore.

    He called once such episodes "old school", where the team went to adventure, made a mistake, but they could save the day.
    "I was hoping for another day. Looks like we just got a whole lot more than that. Let's not waste it."

    "Never underestimate your audience. They're generally sensitive, intelligent people who respond positively to quality entertainment."

    "Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence, has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all."

    Well, it's obviously something from Season 1 that was not continued in Seasons 2, 3, or 4. I'm betting it's either dealing with Poisoning the Well, Sanctuary, the Brotherhood, or the story they never got around to doing (I believe it was to be titled Human Error)

    Good point. I'd like to see the brotherhood revisited.

    Actually, JM wanted Atlantis to be cut from Earth in S4, but couldn't do it because Carter was crossing over. I would actually be looking forward to that given they not only know a lot more about the city since S1, but so much else as well. I find it interesting.

    How exactly can they cut Atlantis off from Earth other than destroying all the DSC-304s which I don't see happening? Just don't see it happening
    A word of advice... there are creatures that live between this dimension and the next, fiendish creatures that feast on the suffering of an entire world to satiate their eternal hunger. Support the Gateworld Cantina or suffer the fate of all who fall into the clutches of the 'Eladrith Ynneas'

    I think in a way it can be cut off somewhat, by having the 304s being their only way to get to Earth and back.

    I am a big season 1 fan and I like what they had going in season 1... one episode lead into the next, such as Rising through Suspicion were related... Underground lead into The Storm/The Eye exceptionally well and then after that we had the major "The wraith are coming" arc for the 2nd half of the season.

    I've always felt that the show should have stayed isolated from earth for longer than it was. Atlantis, it seemed, as a show didn't really get to stand up on two strong feet before it was barraged with crap from SG-1. Season 2 was abysmal and I think it was directly related to that.

    I really liked that feeling of "we HAVE to get out there" in season 1. Not to mention the arcs and continuity which obviously wasn't done in season two (*cough* trinity *cough*) and was only minorly re-introduced into season 3.

    I wish the show could go back to that, but I guess it's too late now.

    He didn't exactly describe how they would have done it either. So you are asking the wrong person.

    Destroying all the 304s? Don't say that!

    I agree with you 100%. When I heard the first few rumors about season four and indeed the season three finale I was desperately hoping that Atlantis would be stuck in another galaxy (where Earth could not find them) and unable to get back which would be the only real way of returning to the original state of affairs.

    As for the Old School thing? I reckon it's time travel back to season 1

    I know he doesn't was more thinking out loud as it were, I suppose they could have some event happen at the midway station that releases some kind of radiation that stops hyperspace travel and have the gate bridge destroyed and have Atlantis run out of ZPMs again... buts a thats awfully trek style strange radiation cop out... and theres the fact that Earth has 2 ZPMs as well

    Have the ZPM run out of power some how on Atlantis, then have the 304s recalled back to MW as protection in the event of a Replicator (or Wraith) invasion fleet. That way the ships aren't destroyed, and there is reason as to why Atlantis is cut off.
