Beware of spoilers below!
It has been two years since Ronon Dex discovered that a small handful of his people survived the Wraith’s decimating attack on his homeworld, Sateda (“Trinity”). Now the team encounters some of Ronon’s own friends and fellow soldiers, who for many years he has believed were killed during a mission to attack the Wraith directly.
Tyre, Ara, and Rakai tell their story to their friend, that instead of being killed in a Wraith attack they were sealed into a series of undreground caves. They eventually dug themselves out and made it back to the Stargate, but by then it was too late: Sateda had been destroyed.
Ronon hopes that his new friends from Earth will welcome his old friend into Atlantis, but the others are apparently reluctant to reveal the city’s continued existence. But Tyre is already well aware that the city of the ancestors is again populated. They have even heard stories from planet to planet that these humans are fighting the Wraith, and that a runner has joined them — a warrior said to be seven feet tall who has killed a hundred Wraith!
Now that they have found him, Tyre insists, Ronon’s place is with the Satedans. With Atlantis being less than welcoming to them, Ronon must make a decision: Does he join his friends and leave Atlantis? But he does not yet know his friends’ darkest secret, and the real reason they have survived all these years.
Season Four of Stargate Atlantis will premiere on SCI FI Channel in the United States this fall. Brand new Season Three episodes premiere Friday, April 13!
