After an Ancient device gives Rodney superhuman powers, his enhanced brilliance is checked only by his impending death -- unless he can learn how to ascend.

ANALYSIS
  • Sheppard briefly mentions having spent six months with a group of ascension wannabes -- a reference to his time with an isolated community living inside a time dilation bubble a year earlier ("Epiphany"). It was here that he learned techniques for reaching (or attempting to) ascension to a higher plane.

    Though six months passed for him, for the rest of the team on the outside it was only a few hours.

  • UNANSWERED QUESTIONS
  • Will Rodney experience any lasting effects from his exposure to the Ancient ascension device?

  • Will Rodney and his team be able to make use of any of the groundbreaking science he tried to record during his time of evolutionary advancement?

  • Will Atlantis (or Earth) conduct any further tests of the device, perhaps even with human subjects -- now that they know (in theory) how to reverse the process?
