  • The long range sensors on Atlantis recognize an Atlantian ship the Aurora slowly returning to Atlantis from the other side of the galaxy. The Daedalus meets her and Sheppard finds the crew alive all in stasis but living in a virtual reality world.

    9.0
    A better episode from a number of standpoints but once they reach the ship the storyline seems to fall apart and muddles no where.

    Obviously the first officer is completely paranoid about Sheppard when he shows up but it goes without saying it was pretty obvious there was a problem. How did the crew end up in stasis? Why were they not aware they were in a virtual reality? Aren't these the Atlantian's? What happened to the superior brains and knowledge. They ended up being duped pretty easily by the Wraith. The ship is damaged for one reason or another. It looks like the Aurora was in a major battle. Who against? So basically too many questions and not enough answers.

    I think it would have been prudent to disengage the Wraith before they tried to communicate with the crew but 20/20 hindsight. In general the whole situation on the ship was strange.

    The part before the ship was pretty good. The action with the Wraith scout and the Daedalus was fun and the setting up of the episode was also entertaining.

    I think if the second part of the episode was handled better this could have been one of the best episodes so far. This was an opportunity lost. Thanks for reading...
