  • The wraith referred to as Todd as returned, cured and back to his old self, but that's not the big problem

      And that’s all they wrote for Stargate Atlantis with this last episode, Enemy at the Gate. After just five seasons, the science fiction series was shown the door with a promise for a made-for-DVD movie that to this date shows little sign of being realized; at least, not in the current economy.

      The wraith referred to as Todd as returned, cured and back to his old self, but that’s not the big problem. As set up in the prior episode, Vegas, a transmission was received from


      an alternate reality which gave the wraith in this reality the location of Earth. Thus, the folks at Atlantis have to try and save the day, not to mention Atlantis.

      The highs and the lows include:

      –While it’s nice to see Amanda Tapping return as Sam Carter, she’s still just a colonel, and there’s no way she’s gonna be the one in charge throughout this crisis. I don’t see Jack O’Neill staying away, calling the shots from Washington D.C. Landry would also have been recalled immediately.


      • I understand the need for doing it how they did, but it’s not the reality.

        –I love the tribute to Don S. Davis, who played General Hammond on Stargate SG-1. The newest Earth ship is being renamed after him, and that’s stated as being Carter’s next command (in the still unfilmed direct-to-DVD movie). Actually, it is seen as a work in progress on Stargate Universe.

        –The fake dead thing has been done on Stargate shows ad nauseam. I’m sure many were taken in by the

        big scene with a major character here, but don’t be fooled. Personally, I’m tired of it; it’s a big time been there, done that.

        –Who doesn’t love Atlantis at the Golden Gate? Someone better notify the port authority, though. That’s a large object to go around.

        All in all, for Stargate Atlantis it is a nice end and there’s lot of room for that movie, should it ever get made. Not everyone really gets their equal time, though, but there’s a little something for everyone.
