New details have emerged on the first four episodes of Stargate Atlantis‘s new season, premiering this Friday at 10 p.m. (9 Central) on the SCI FI Channel in the United States!
SCI FI Channel has passed along the official episode teasers for “Search and Rescue,” “The Seed,” “Broken Ties,” and “The Daedalus Variations.” Of particular interest is “The Seed,” for which very little information was previously known.
The network summaries leave plenty unspoiled, of course, but they do include significant info from the early part of the episodes. If you would rather watch the episodes completely unspoiled, turn back now.
Atlantis races against time to save team members trapped in a collapsed compound, and rescue a pregnant Teyla from Michael’s clutches.
An injured Sheppard is trapped alongside Ronon beneath the rubble of Michael‘s collapsed compound. Trapped in another debris pocket, McKay and Lorne realize that a subspace burst has already reached Michael.
Light years away, Michael’s flagship Wraith cruiser hurtles towards the compound. Imprisoned onboard, a pregnant Teyla begs Kanaan, the father of her baby, to help save her.
Carter leads a rescue mission to the planet. Her team succeeds in digging up McKay and Lorne, but Ronon and a rapidly deteriorating Sheppard are buried far deeper in the rubble. With Michael and his hybrids on their way back to deal with intruders, and the Daedalus already en route, the question becomes: Who will reach them first? (More …)
When a mysterious alien organism takes Dr. Keller as its host, Beckett and the crew desperately search for a serum to save her from the evolving intruder before it can infiltrate Atlantis.
When Dr. Keller fails to report for her morning shift, concerned team members investigate and are shocked by what they discover: Jennifer, unconscious in her quarters — a mysterious web of tendrils attached to her body. Suspecting her condition may be linked to her research into the Wraith data recovered from Michael’s lab, the team makes the decision to bring Beckett out of stasis.
The beloved doctor leads the medical investigation while Sheppard and company are quarantined under suspicion that they may have been exposed to the same virus that has affected Keller. As Beckett struggles to find a solution, the alien organism grows, creeping out into the adjoining corridors toward the main power grid. With Atlantis itself now under threat, Woolsey is ultimately faced with a decision that could cost Keller her life. (More …)
Ronon is captured by his former friend, Tyre and turned over to the wraith. As the team scrambles for leads, Ronon undergoes a torturous ordeal.
Ronon is ambushed during an off-world mission and awakens, much later, a prisoner of his former friend, Tyre. The fellow Satedan, it turns out, has fallen on hard times since they last crossed paths. Abandoned by the Wraith he once served, he is undergoing a physiological and psychological withdrawal from the reverse-feeding process once granted to him as a Wraith worshiper. But he believes he has come up with a way to win back the respect of his former masters: by delivering them Ronon.
Intent on turning their defiant captive, the Wraith begin their process of reverse-feeding — stealing Ronon’s life, bringing him to the brink of death, then restoring his youth. Again and again, and again.
A tip, meanwhile, leads the team to an abandoned village. But Ronon and the Wraith are long gone, and the only remnant of their former presence is a seriously injured Tyre who may be their only hope of rescuing their friend. (More …)
A drive malfunction aboard a mysterious duplicate Daedalus sends the team jumping through various alternate realities where they encounter sinister alien life forms, a searing sun, and a pitched space battle over Atlantis.
When a mysterious, duplicate Daedalus appears in orbit over Atlantis, the team is dispatched to investigate. Once aboard the deserted and severely damaged ship, the team discovers an ominous video message from the former captain. But before they can make sense of the situation, the ship is propelled into an alternate reality.
As McKay tries to figure out what is going on, the ship continues to jump through various alternate realities, encountering an alien armada and the blistering heat of an expanding sun. Worse — the team realizes that if they don’t find a way back to their reality soon, they risk being lost forever. (More …)
