For the people who said what AT said, she said 1 word not 3 words - Sgt. Harriman said "Who's it from" she said "............. Atlantis"
I think this was an awesome episode. A great deal of quality character moments, and some very nice continuity thrown in for good measure. These are the kind of scenes that make the Stargate's special: they know how to make their people believable and interesting.

I actually liked this clip episode, but then again it's not really a clip episode is it. Most of those are in one or two rooms with very little or no new CGI/SFX stuff, character developpement or heavy addition to storyline.
This one had all that. My favourite non-comedy part of the episode isSpoiler:
I CAN'T WAIT FOR "The Siege"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In the infinite expanse that we occupy, whose to say that something's impossible?
Oh my god ! Such an amazing episode !!!
David Hewlett is definitely one of the best Stargate Universe actors,
and Rodney McKay is once more one of my favorite SG characters !
He's so great in the video-cam moments ! He's amazing !
Each Atlantis episode makes me a bigger McKay fan !!!
He made me LOL and LOL again in this episode !
Thanks David Hewlett, you're great !
And I was also LOL when I imagined O'Neill watching the Kavanagh video ...
I imagine Jack watching this geek speaking with his proofs against Weir and all ...
I'm sure O'Neill will cut the video within the 1st minute !
They people behind Stargate have gotten really good at making their clip shows significant parts of the storyline. 'Disclosure' and 'Innaguration' were both enjoyable episodes, and didn't rely on too many clips (especially 'Innaguration'), and 'Letters From Pegasus' is another improvment on the formula.
Somebody described it as the "yearly recap before the big battle". Looking at the episodes that are coming, I think there's another line that sums it up nicely: The deep breath before the plunge. Everybody gets a chance to review what they've been through over the last year, and look at the dangers they face ahead with clear eyes.
I don't think Cavanaugh knows General O'Neill very well, if he's going to send his list of complaints to him. The things he mentioned are more likely to endear Dr. Weir to the general.
We finally saw the hive ships! This is the first close shot we've seen of them in action. They're a lot sleeker than I had thought they would be. And with the docked cruisers and who knows how many fighters, they're going to be really nasty to fight. If they took on the Ancients, I'm guessing they could carve their way through the the Milky Way with ease.
Wrong - she said only "Atlantis"Originally Posted by MartoufMarty
Erm, no. Zelenka started right away from "On the bottom of the sea"...Originally Posted by MartoufMarty
Any one know how to get screen caps from BSPlayer or Windows Media Player I just want post the pics of Wraith ships for those who want to know.
I finally saw the episode! A few things for me:
1. Best episode of Atlantis to date!
2. Best clip show of SG-1 and Atlantis...amazing the way they did it!
3. The culling was just...intense. I could feel the adrenaline rushing, it was amazing yet horrifying to watch.
*sniff* I am a proud man, but i can say that the very end, starting with Major Sheppard's message to Colonel Sumner's family and ending with Colonel Carter recieving the message really got me. *tear* I may have cried a little, especially with everyone saying good-bye and Dr. Weir's message to Simon. I have to say it may be my favorite episode of both series.
Yeah I agree.Originally Posted by aAnubiSs
Reminded me of Battlestar Galactica when the human ships were running from the cylons. the way the ships came out of hyperspace were quite similar.
The SFX in stargate (both shows) are abolutely stunning and this episode confirmed it. Not only was the SFX brilliant but the music was really touching. i love the ancients/atlantis themed music, it really sends that tingling feeling through my body.
Zelenka did at some point say, "I can't tell you this, but..."
My mom speaks quite a bit of Czech and Russian and Ukranian (grew up with those languages basically) and she was listening to it and doing a bit of translating.
And I know that I was wrong about 'it's from Atlantis'... I was excited okay? I was typing too fast and such
Definitely atleast a 7/10.
I liked the personal monologues. I have fallen in love with the Wraith and hopefully, we will produce little Wraith-Calicto babies. They just rock.
I loved the enemy from Chronicles of Riddick and the way that there technology was gas like. And the Wraith have embodied that style in terms of ships.
God. Wraith rock. I loved how swarms of Darts starting flying out everywhere! It was awesome.
I think the white light in the middle was some type of transportation for Wraith warriors to arrive on to the settlement to cull the rest. Culling is pretty awesome.
The Wraith-Teyla thing was nice. Zelenka is my hero.
I cant wait until next Monday and the Monday after that and the Monday after that.
I'm going to say it. I love Atlantis more than SG-1. There.. It's blasphemy, but its true. THeres much more continuity.

What a deeply moving episode... it certainly evoked a gamut of emotions from me... from laughter to sympathy to anger to fear. All aspects of the human element was wonderfully contrasted with the Wraith's callous and pervading presence.The emotional depth of the episode was made all the more heartwrenching by both humour and that ever increasing sense of urgency that the Wraith are not too far away. It was ingenious really to juxtapose the humour with that underlying sense of doom.
I liked the tension between Teyla and Sheppard... it was reminiscent of some of the early Daniel Jackson/Jack O'Neill sparrings. There was an interesting edge to Sheppard in this scenario that reminded us that for all his joviality, when push comes to shove he is a military man at heart (a la Hot Zone). However, that was contrasted again with his much more subdued demeanour at the end of the episode.
For the first time in the entire season Sgt Bates actually struck a chord with me. His thinly veiled fear of what is to come revealed that personable side of him very effectively.
Was the ever stoic Elizabeth Weir choking back tears?... I think she was and I liked her the more for it.
Amazing performances all round... I cannot believe how good Atlantis has been so far...
"When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth"
I am gonna squeel like a little girl when The Seige is aired!!!!!!
Lt. Ford to Dr Zelenka: "Is this some sort of payback for me beating up guys like you in high school?"
- Stargate Atlantis: Season One - Hot Zone
Dr. Beckett: "...Mom...I miss you terribly...*breaks down*...I can't do this!"
- Stargate Atlantis: Season One - Letters from Pegasus
Sen. Kinsey: "Do you trust this man?"
Col. Jack O'Neill: "...No..."
- Stargate SG-1 - Chain Reaction
Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis I love science fiction
Best. Clip Show. Ever.
Let's break it down:
- The comedy!! The asian woman, McKay talking about "leadership", Beckett's "fungus", Zelenka's "security clearance", Kavangahamarama's whining....priceless stuff.
- The action!! The flashbacks were well-placed and they were all excellent. Most importantly, they did NOT detract from the show like many "clip shows" have had in the past.
- The Wraith Armada!! Three raging hive ships (anyone else think they looked like wraith darts on Naquadah-enhanced steroids?), the battle cruiser type deals, and a boatload of darts! I can't WAIT for the freaking SIEGE!
- My thoughts on the Big Blue Wraith Beam of Doom: I immediatly saw it as a "drop point" of sorts, where the darts can deposit their current load of captured humans and then go out for more. Opinions?
Overall, this episode is second only to a few.
