  • Trivia

    • In the Stargate SG-1 double episode "Moebius", SG-1 located a lost "Puddle Jumper" such as those used in Atlantis. The story of this episode involved an alternate timeline where Rodney McKay had come up with the name "Gateship 1". Daniel Jackson then comments that "Well, it's a ship that goes through the gate!" to which Jack, clearly at odds with the name, reluctantly agrees to go with. In this pilot episode of Atlantis, Rodney once again calls the ship "Gateship 1" but in this timeline, Shepard dismisses it and calls it a "Puddle Jumper". The name would be used throughout the run of Stargate Atlantis.
