    While I'm at it, Teyla's really starting to get on my nerves.
    I hope on the next clip show, they'll be reminiscing on her funeral service.

    that sounds better, i didn't think of that. make sence because teyla said she has never seen anything like it before, if it was relication or something they would do it heaps. gathering raw materials they wouldn't need to do as much.

    This was really a great episode. Much more than I had expected to be.
    I dont whether it has been done before, but Ill give it a try. This is a translation of what Zelenka was saying during the clips from Rising:

    "We have a fail safe mechanism at the bottom of the sea. A huge energy ripped off the anchor of the city from the bottom of the ocean. We were terrified, thats what we were. It was unbelievable. Whats happening? And the noise, the entire city was shaking, like by an earthquake. It was something unbelievable and suddenly we are moving. The whole city was rising, it was rising up to the sea level. It was unbelievable and the towers broke the water and we went up and up. Waters, waves, waterfalls, everything dripping down from the heights. We climbed up to the very top of it and suddenly there was the sun, just the sun. It shined to all windows. I wont forget it till my death."

    Thats pretty much it. I did my best

    OMG, Dr. ZELENKA rulezzz

    btw, i was just to make the translation

    I think the blue beam was a way to transport all humans up to the hive ship. The darts would fly around and fill up with people, then drop off their cargo to the blue beam to be taken up to a hive ship. Once they were empty the darts would fly around and find more people. Also the ground troops had to get the stragglers up to the ship somehow. Stun them and drag them to the blue beam. Just a guess...

    Another great episode for the first season of Atlantis.

    Character development and story development is very high for a show at this stage. Most shows barely get off the ground in season one, Atlantis however is already developing excellent stories.

    After seeing the REAL threat from the wraith ships one has to be a little worried about what will Atlantis do to repeal this threat. Obviously they need a ZPM to activate the shield.

    I wouldn't call this a clip show cuz they just used a couple flashback sequences but it wasn't enough clips to whine about it being a clip show. I have to agree that Zelenka talking about classified material was pretty funny.

    I am really beginning to hate that guy(can't remember his name now) who is talking [email protected]#$ about Weir and the rest of the Atlantis expedition. Most of his complaints are petty and hope this character dies a horrible death at the hand of the Wraith or something.

    Although I am wondering a bit why Atlantis didn't try to send a message before...I guess they were worried about losing their power generators in the process, unforunately we will have to wait till the next episode to see what happened to the power generators.

    I am glad this show isn't becoming a Stargate: Voyager so to speak where they get stranded till the last season like that Star Trek show, which limited in the amount of things it could do with storyline. Atlantis' mission is to repel the wraith and defend atlantis. They are not always trying to get home or leave Atlantis.

    Anyway definately one of the better episodes of the season, I really like crossover's with other shows which this one had a brief spot at the end with Col. Carter.

    I have heard rumors of them showing the Seige before the Gift?? Anyone know a definate answer on this?? Stargate SG-1 Archive is saying that the Gift is the next episode...
    Lt. Ford to Dr Zelenka: "Is this some sort of payback for me beating up guys like you in high school?"

    Lightbulb Re: Letter From Pegasus

    This is by far one of the better ep's of Atlantis Season 1.

    I mean, when I saw the Wraith fleet drop out of hyperspace I was like: "Whoa', this is far worse than I thought"

    More importantly, the Hive Ships look amazing, and the idea that they each have 3 cruisers atached to them is very cool.

    BTW, I don't want to sound negative, because that would be oh so not me , but ... I have a feeling that the Daedalus isn't going to last very long in The Siege
    Truth is relative. Pick one that works

    After all the talk about how they had to be careful not to violate securtiy clearance, is it not a massive breach in security clearance for the Japanese scientist to record her personal message while wearing a jacket which has a patch that you can cleary see on her right arm saying ATLANTIS!?!?! hehehehe

    Interesting episode not the best episode of second half of the season but I still thought it was quite good. IMO it was not a clip-show episodes it was mixture of clip-show and a normal episode. Very funny episode probably the funniest episode of the season Mackay and leadership thing was hilarious. Great to see wraith tech finally although I was expecting hive-ships to be a lot bigger then they were. We still didnt find out what that wraith beam was for maybe in the next episode we may learn more about it. I thought Dr Weir character has developed a lot since the start of the season she looked great very convincing as leader. Overall not a bad episode.

    I noticed this too.

    Also zelenka does his speech in front of a naquadria reactor

    becketts is in a a foreign looking medical room

    most of the clips are done with atlantis walls as backgrounds

    all these things constitute security breachs if the videos are ever shown to the family members.

    Thats true I was thinking about that my self I think what the USAF will do is blur it out so when the familys receive the videos they cants see what is in the back ground.

    Great episode.

    Rodney and Zelenka on the camcorder was funny as hell.

    How come Elizabeth couldn't tell her boyfriend Simon, about the stuff that has happened? Didn't he recieve security clearance in Rising?

    And it's Letters from Pegasus (sorry, I'm a nitpicker ).

    <snif...> whoa... (wipes tear from eye, blows nose) <sigh>

    There, that's better.

    What a wonderful episode, a great character piece. If there was an award show for clip episodes Letters would win in all the categories.

    Teyla. Was. Superb! The scenes between her and Sheppard were flawless, IMO, and she really did an excellent job of conveying real anxious fear for her friends.

    And what a lovely way to pay homage to those who had already fallen.

    Loved Zelenka's part! No translation needed!

    And Bates! The true soldier, doing it all for his little brother.

    I'm looking forward to tons of missing scene fic for this ep, how each character decided to say what at first they couldn't - Goodbye. <snif!> Here I go again!

    And MacKay... awww... he still has the hots for Sam!
    Anyone else think that when MacKay kept bringing up leadership that he was actually(eventually) talking about Weir, Sheppard and Teyla?

    I look forward to a scene that puts Jack in the same room with ponytail dude. I think it's safe to say that the word "ass" will come up at least once in that short conversation.

    And is that Asian scientist infatuated with Rodney or what? Too cute!

    Just, all-in-all, a great ep. I give it a 20 out of 10.
    Gracie

    A Cherokee elder sitting with his grandchildren told them,
    "In every life there is a terrible fight a fight between two wolves.
    One is evil: he is fear, anger, envy, greed, arrogance, self-pity,
    resentment, and deceit. The other is good: joy, serenity, humility,
    confidence, generosity, truth, gentleness, and compassion."
    A child asked, "Grandfather, which wolf will win?"
    The elder looked the child in the eye. "The one you feed."

    There are diffrent levels of security clearance so therefore Elizabeth could only reveal so much to Simon.

    This was my favorite episode to date. I don't know why, but i just really enjoyed it. We got to see everyone at their best and worst. Ford finally got somemore screen time, and some clips from his fight scenes. I hope they use his skill in the future, because up till now, most fight scenes have just been that, normal fights. No one imploying a technique or anything.

    I hope the writers don't get into that habit of killing off reoccuring characters that a lot of shows do. Its a good thing for writers because they get to write the emotional episodes that kill off people, without losing a regular, but i do not like it.
    Zelenka and Dr. Ponytail, and Bates and Groden, among others make a great support crew that has no need to die.

    Question: Teyla siad she had never seen a culling this long before. How has she ever seen any cullings, all the wraith were asleep. Were the little munchie runs that the sleep-guard wraith went on also called Cullings? Either way, she seems to know a lot of intimate detail about a speices that has been asleep for the most part for 500 year

    Loved the episode

    Me too. Although my guess is that when she mentions cullings, she means Snack runs. This must have been the first Full blown culling shes seen.
