  • Stargate Atlantis is perfect for all Sci-Fi fans. I loved it from the begining. A great spin off from SG-1 and introduces some interesting new and old characters. Great episode to kick start a new show!!! :)

    After discovering that Atlantis may not be on Earth as was believed, Daniel Jackson believes he may have found the gate address of the planet where the lost city. Dr Ezliabeth Wier heads the expedition who head to the pegasus galaxy. After arriving in the city and discovering the city's shield is colapsing a mission is underway to find a planet to vaccate to. While exploring planets Major John Sheppard comes accross Teyla Emmagan (the leader of her people known as the Athsoians) and a new enemy known as the Wraith. As this is happening the lost city rises from the depths of the ocean. When a culling takes place on Teyla's planet a resuce mission takes place to rescue the people who have been taken. Though they lose some people they return to atlantis ready to fight so that they can live in this galaxy.
