  • Space battles, huge explosions, damsels in distress, bad guys turn good, danger, defiance, evil enemy runs ways. Just some of the phrases used to describe Search and Rescue.

    I have wanted to see this episode since the end of Last Man. It has everything I look for in an Atlantis episode. I love it when the Daedalus and Michaels Cruiser battle it out. The fighting on the Cruiser was great, the fact that Teyla had her baby and they weren't attacked in just weird. Also how did Michael steal the jumper? I have my theories. One is that he forced Beckett to give him the ATA Gene, so he could use the jumper and other Ancient Technology. This wasn't the best season openers on Atlantis, but it was very good none the less. Also if you listen, the Daedalus shields make the same sound as Atlantis's shield when it's raised or lowered. Keep an ear out for it.
