  • Solid start for Commander Woolsey

    Happy Birthday, Dr. Beckett! - sorry, a Frosty phrase. This episode was okay. I was just not too keen on the major plot, of a whole wraith ship being built from an infection in Dr. Keller. This was Mr. Woolsey's first episode as commander of Atlantis, and I thought that part was fine. They've progressed the fate of Carson Beckett (clone), so for now he will live on Earth. Here are some other thoughts:

    Carson waking up asks, "did I miss anything?". Well, Teyla's back, for one thing! He didn't seem so surprise.

    Isn't it fortunate that Beckett was revived just before the problem began?

    The ZPM shouldn't have been their only power source present. There were times when Atlantis didn't even have a working ZPM, so they must have some backup power, like a naquadah generator.

    There was a hint that Dr. Keller might like Rodney at the beginning.

    Carson says, "well it's not the case of the hives, is it?" I wonder if that was suppose to be a pun!

    Overall, it was a good episode and I thought well written, even though I didn't like the major plot.
