Apparently able to reprogram their base code, the Replicators have attacked and defeated the Ancients who had only recently taken over control of the city. General O'Neil and Richard Woolsey had stayed behind to negotiate with the Ancients and are hiding out in a remote part of the city. It doesn't really matter however since O'Neil's standing orders are that Atlantis is to be destroyed with a nuclear device should it ever be taken over by hostile forces. Sheppard, Weir, McKay and Beckett collect Teyla and Ronon Dex en route and devise a plan to surreptitiously enter the city and rescue their colleagues. If they are to be successful McKay will also have to find a way to destroy the Replicators before they reprogram themselves and make their weapons useless. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


A Replicator makes reference to the gate-ship Sheppard flew through the star-gate, a name McKay and Ford had proposed and Sheppard declined in favor of calling them Puddle Jumpers. See more »


When Shepherd gives his authentication code to General O'Niell when he first arrives in the puddle jumper he states A6DC9; however when he gives his authentication code to the Daedalus he states ADC96. See more »


Cetus: What were you doing in the flooded sections of the city?
Major General Jack O'Neill: The backstroke... I think.
Talus: What were you planning?
Major General Jack O'Neill: Well I was planning to retire, but man is that over rated. You know I'm not a workaholic or anything but, I need to stay active... you know, in the community... it's a health, maintinance sort of thing.
