Could atlantis be turned into sorta like a deep space 9 type show.... ...woah! don't all y'all point your p90s and zats at me just yet!
I mean SG1 was called just that, SG1. So it's a given that the show would be based around the SG1 team. Atlantis, otoh, does not have to based around sheperds team. I know they already do involve a lot more people, but it is still shepherds team, dr weir, the doctor and the "other guys".
I'm thinking, will the writers get more freedom if they had more characters to play with? What if not all the "main characters" have to be in every episodes, and the writers didn't have to focus on them most of the time?
