Sci Fi Series

Stargate SG-1’s Dr. Daniel Jackson travels to Atlantis when his research suggests that a rebellious ancient scientist named Janus may have hidden a secret lab somewhere within the city. Hoping to find it, and possibly a significant portion of his unauthorized research, Jackson enlists Dr. McKay’s help. An obscure log entry leads them to a cloaked lab where they unwittingly activate a signal on a distant planet. Hours later, the city is paid a visit by a group of mysterious aliens.

Meanwhile Woolsey, along with Dr. Keller and Ronan, have joined Colonel Caldwell on board the Daedalus, leaving Sheppard in charge of Atlantis. They welcome Todd and his delegation to the ship to discuss testing Keller’s gene therapy on live Wraith subjects. But events take a turn for the worse when Todd, suspecting them of betrayal, takes control of the Daedalus.

Sci Fi Series

McKay and Ronan, each unaware of the other’s motive, volunteer to assist Dr. Jennifer Keller with a medical follow-up away from Atlantis. But once in the settlement, a nervous child patient prompts Keller to ask Ronan and McKay to wait for her in the local tavern while she finishes her treatment.

Later, when the pair return, they are surprised to learn that she left sometime ago. An exhaustive search of the village turns up no sign of her. But a set of footprints in the dirt just past the village confirms Ronan’s mounting suspicion that Keller has been kidnapped.

Ronan, wasting no time, begins to track her abductor while McKay runs back to the stargate to radio for assistance. But just as he reaches the DHD, four Hunter Wraith come through the gate and fan out in separate directions. Ronan, knowing full well that these wraith exist to chase Runners, suspects there is a connection to Dr. Keller’s disappearance. And he knows he must draw on his uncommon skills as a former Runner if he is to save her.

Sci Fi Series

Keller and the Atlantis team meet with the wraith, Todd, to deliver a startling proposition. Aided by her studies of Michael’s retrieved data, Keller believes she has found the means by which to “cure” the Wraith of their need to feed on humans. All she requires are some wraith willing to act as test subjects for this breakthrough treatment.

Todd is intrigued, but insists that they must first win the support of the Primary – the supreme

Wraith Queen in the alliance. But to do so, Teyla must go undercover with nothing to rely on but her wraith DNA and an ally with a hidden agenda.

Sci Fi Series

Dr. Beckett is asked to delay his departure from Atlantis when word comes that Major Anne Teldy and her away team, Sgt. Dusty Mehra, Cpt. Alicia Vega and Dr. Alison Porter, have stumbled onto one of Michael’s labs inside an extensive underground catacomb.

He and Lt. Col. Sheppard gate to Teldy’s location, where further investigation reveals an abandoned laboratory containing numerous stasis pods. While Dr. Beckett and Dr. Porter stay behind to sift through the research data that Michael left behind, Sheppard and Teldy’s team set out to explore a nearby village.

Beckett and Porter conclude that Michael was experimenting on the genetic characteristics of several different life forms. Meanwhile, Sheppard and his team arrive at the village to find it abandoned. Yet chilling walls of fog and flashes of movement within it, suggests that they are not alone.

Sci Fi Series

En route to check on a missing research team, Lt. Col. Sheppard, Dr. McKay, Teyla and Ronan emerge from the stargate to find themselves swimming atop a flooded valley. With only the apex of the gate accessible above the waterline they cling to it – soaked and bitterly cold – until a puddle jumper can make it through to rescue them.

But during the flight back to Atlantis, McKay inexplicably falls ill and in the days that follow, his condition declines further. Dr. Keller discovers a parasitic organism in his brain that cannot be surgically removed. As a result, his ability to function continues to deteriorate to the point where he has virtually no recollection of who he is or what he is capable of. Soon, his emotions and memories have regressed to those of a young boy and, fearing that he will not pull through, the doctor summons Jeannie, McKay’s sister, to say her final goodbyes.

But it’s too late. Rodney no longer recognizes her or any of his friends. However, Ronan has a plan, albeit a very risky one. He tells Jeannie of a place – a shrine located on the planet Talus -that would grant Rodney one day to be himself again, before he dies…

Returning from an exploratory mission, the team is mystified when an arc of blue energy causes the puddle jumper’s primary systems to shut down, slamming them into an active stargate. They narrowly make it home, only to be greeted by similar erratic anomalies within the city itself. Soon, nearly every system in Atlantis is affected by ominous power disruptions.

Suddenly, a puzzling message appears on McKay’s computer screen. Its author claims to be a former friend long thought dead. Now an incorporeal presence, she begs Rodney to utilize the Ancient’s technology to build her a new body.

Highly sceptical, the Atlantis team is faced with an impossible decision. To create the means to release an entity who may, or may not be a friend, or stand by as it systematically destroys the city’s technological infrastructure.

When a mysterious, duplicate Daedalus appears in orbit over Atlantis, the team is dispatched to investigate. Once aboard the deserted and severely damaged ship, the team discovers an ominous video message from the former captain. But before they can make sense of the situation, the ship is propelled into an alternate reality.

As McKay tries to figure out what is going on, the ship continues to jump through various alternate realities, encountering an alien armada and the blistering heat of an expanding sun. Worse – the team realizes that if they don’t find a way back to their reality soon, they risk being lost forever.

Sci Fi Series

Ronon is ambushed during an off-world mission and awakens, much later, a prisoner of his former friend, Tyre. The fellow Satedan, it turns out, has fallen on hard times since they last crossed paths. Abandoned by the Wraith he once served, he is undergoing a physiological and psychological withdrawal from the reverse-feeding process once granted to him as a Wraith worshiper. But he believes he has come up with a way to win back the respect of his former masters: by delivering them Ronon.

Intent on turning their defiant captive, the Wraith begin their process of reverse-feeding – stealing Ronon’s life, bringing him to the brink of death, then restoring his youth. Again, and again, and again.

A tip, meanwhile, leads the team to an abandoned village. But Ronon and the Wraith are long gone, and the only remnant of their former presence is a seriously injured Tyre who may be their only hope of rescuing their friend.

Sci Fi Series

When Dr. Keller fails to report for her morning shift, concerned team members investigate and are shocked by what they discover; Jennifer, unconscious in her quarters, a mysterious web of tendrils attached to her body. Suspecting her condition may be linked to her research into the wraith data recovered from Michael’s lab, the team makes the decision to bring Beckett out of stasis.

The beloved doctor leads the medical investigation while Sheppard and the team are quarantined under suspicion that they may have been exposed to the same virus that has affected Keller. As Beckett struggles to find a solution, the alien organism grows, creeping out into the adjoining corridors toward the main power grid. With Atlantis itself now under threat, Woolsey is ultimately faced with a decision that could cost Keller her life.
