      The 13th show of the last season, Stargate Atlantis: Inquisition is what is known in the business as the clips show. It’s sole purpose is to keep costs down. One episode a year is devoted to this economic episode. Whatever cast is used is often minimal and most always in one or two stationary locations.

      To accomplish this task, the writer here took a page from the pilot of Star Trek:


      The Next Generation and put, not humanity, for Atlantis on trial for committing sins that resulted in the deaths of millions. Ultimately, it’s up to Sheppard (Joe Flanigan), his team (Jason Momoa, Rachel Luttrell, and David Hewlett), and Woolsey (Robert Picardo) to get Atlantis off the hook.

      Throughout Inquisition’s hour, Sheppard explains away all of the accusations made by the federation council (more Star Trek). That’s why clip after clip after clip ...


      • of footage from four years of Stargate Atlantis are shown.

        Inquisition is helpful for newcomers to the show because it does actually start back at the beginning when SGC personnel first woke up the evil wraith. It moves forward, showing scenes from pivotal episodes that followed. It’s not in depth, but it is a decent overview. That said, their choices of scenes aren’t always the best in my opinion. Sometimes

        I felt like they just wanted to show off their special effects moments versus excerpts that informed or showed pure character interaction.

        Overall, it’s as okay as most clip shows are. The inquisition itself is pretty mild, and Woolsey’s final statement is unimpressive and grandiose. I also didn’t like the little tag scene with him and Sheppard, sharing drinks and smoking cigars. It just felt very inappropriate and was a complete turn off.
