Stargate Atlantis

Syfy (ended 2009)




  • Season 5 Episode 9: Tracker

  • Celise's village was attacked by Wraith because Kiryk spent a night there, similar to the situation Ronon Dex caused in at least one village during his time as a Runner. In the Season 3 episode "Sateda", he returned to the village and was turned over to the Wraith.

  • The planet was designated M33-985. The planet's sun has a very gradual descent angle, meaning the world has very short nights.

  • When Keller tries to remove the tracking device she mentions that it is different from Ronon's. This must mean that the Wraith must have learned from their mistake and made the device more complex to remove.

  • Season 5 Episode 8: The Queen

  • Sheppard and the team are on the way to meet with Todd on the Hive Ship. The Puddle Jumper docks and a knock can be heard on the rear hatch. Sheppard walks into the rear compartment and opens the hatch to reveal several Wraith drones with weapons
    Sheppard: This looks a little familiar.

    Sheppard and the team were faced with a similar situation in the season four episode, "Be All My Sins Remember'd".

  • Todd's Wraith Alliance includes many Queens but they fall under the command of a Primary Queen. This Queen also had a yet unseen piece of technology, a pendant to be used in case of emergency to sound an alarm throughout the ship.

  • Dr. Keller has found the formula Michael used to alter his DNA so he no longer needs to feed. It was discovered in the database obtained on M2S-445 in the episode "Search and Rescue."

  • McKay: Seriously, the next time we have to name one of these guys, we should take a vote.

    McKay is referring to the fact that Sheppard has named many Wraith without conferring with anyone first. In "Poisoning the Well" he named the captured wraith Steve, in "The Siege (1)" he named the Wraith intruder Bob, in "Michael" he named the Wraith "guinea pig" Mike, in "Spoils of War (3)" he named the Wraith ally Todd, and in this episode he named the second in command Kenny.

  • In this episode another Hive ship is destroyed by Teyla. This brings the total to fifteen since the expedition arrived in the galaxy.

  • Todd: She will only speak with another Queen.
    Teyla: And your Queen was killed last year in the skies above Atlantis.

    Teyla is referring to the events of the season 4 episode "The Seer."

  • Season 5 Episode 7: Whispers

  • Chronologically, this episode takes place 6 months after the events of "The Seed."

  • Sheppard: The last thing I need is three tons of rubble falling on my head, again.

    Sheppard is referring to the events of the season 5 premiere "Search and Rescue."

  • The book that Dusty is reading before she goes to check the perimeter and makes the doorknob comment is The Martian General's Daughter by Theodore Judson.

  • When Mirellus is looking through the window, right before he is killed, someone can be seen walking by with the blue glowsticks.

  • Beckett: Not to mention two months in a stasis pod, thank you.
    Sheppard: Two months. Try eight hundred years, that'll give you rubber legs.

    Sheppard is referring to the events of the season 4 finale "The Last Man."

  • Season 5 Episode 6: The Shrine

  • Nitpick: The team couldn't gate directly back to Atlantis as the tower would have been flooded, so they waited 9 hours for the water to recede. However, as the wormhole shut down after 38 minutes, they could have simply dialled a space gate and allowed the water to come through with them (into space), then dial Atlantis from there after a further 38 minutes. Given that Rodney lost consciousness and appeared to be very ill, it is unlikely that they would have stayed on the planet for 9 hours when they could've been back in 76 minutes.

  • Woolsey reveals that his father had Alzheimer's. The disease is similar to "Second Childhood," the Pegasus galaxy equivalent but is not caused by a parasite. "Second Childhood" is also more severe in that all memories are affected including speech.

  • Talus is a planet once that once belonged to the Lanteans. They built a shrine, where a person afflicted with "Second Childhood" can be him or herself for a day, before they die. The planet was taken over by the Wraith during their war with the Asurans and is now home to 2 Hive ships.

  • This episode implies that a submerged Stargate could bring in water to Atlantis.

  • Although it is never mentioned on screen during the series it is not possible for a Puddle Jumper to enter the Stargate while cloaked, which is why Sheppard used his smoke technique. The Puddle Jumper console contains a warning in Ancient that translates to "Never Attempt Gate Reentry When In Cloak Mode."

  • The flooded planet is designated M44-5YN. The planet was used by the Atlantis Expedition to study the long term effects of global warming.
