GateWorld has just received brand new details on the next month’s worth of new Stargate Atlantis episodes, courtesy of the SCI FI Channel! Don’t miss brand new episodes every Friday at 10 p.m. (9 Central) on the cable network (with the exception of August 29, when the show takes a break for Labor Day weekend).
Here’s how SCI FI describes the next four episodes of Atlantis:
En route to check on a missing research team, Lt. Colonel Sheppard, Dr. McKay, Teyla, and Ronon emerge from the Stargate to find themselves swimming atop a flooded valley. With only the apex of the gate accessible above the waterline they cling to it — soaked and bitterly cold — until a Puddle Jumper can make it through to rescue them.
But during the flight back to Atlantis, McKay inexplicably falls ill and in the days that follow, his condition declines further. Dr. Keller discovers a parasitic organism in his brain that cannot be surgically removed. As a result, his ability to function continues to deteriorate to the point where he has virtually no recollection of who he is or what he is capable of. Soon, his emotions and memories have regressed to those of a young boy and, fearing that he will not pull through, the doctor summons Jeannie, McKay’s sister, to say her final goodbyes.
But it’s too late. Rodney no longer recognizes her or any of his friends. However, Ronon has a plan, albeit a very risky one. He tells Jeannie of a place — a shrine located on the planet Talus — that would grant Rodney one day to be himself again, before he dies.
Dr. Beckett is asked to delay his departure from Atlantis when word comes that Major Anne Teldy and her away team, Sergeant Dusty Mehra, Captain Alicia Vega, and Dr. Alison Porter, have stumbled onto one of Michael’s labs inside an extensive underground catacomb.
He and Lt. Colonel Sheppard gate to Teldy’s location, where further investigation reveals an abandoned laboratory containing numerous stasis pods. While Dr. Beckett and Dr. Porter stay behind to sift through the research data that Michael left behind, Sheppard and Teldy’s team set out to explore a nearby village.
Beckett and Porter conclude that Michael was experimenting on the genetic characteristics of several different life forms. Meanwhile, Sheppard and his team arrive at the village to find it abandoned. Yet chilling walls of fog, and flashes of movement within it, suggests that they are not alone.
