Two hive ships are still approaching Atlantis and all hope seems lost. Weir orders evacuation and she and Sheppard activate the city's self destruct. Just when McKay tries to dial the address of the evacuation site, the stargate activates from off-world. All of the sudden help from Earth is under way as a certain colonel Everett arrives with reinforcements. Immediately he gets under everybody's skin. He relieves Weir of command, orders her and Sheppard to cancel the self-destruct and get the evacuated people back. He tells Earth has constructed a new intergalactic battle cruiser, the Daedalus, that will arrive in four days, bringing a ZPM. He brought some supplies to defend the city until then, naquadah powered gun turrets and an improved naquadah generator to power the weapons chair. He also deploys some space mines to keep the hive ships at bay. Will it be enough? Written by

Did You Know?
Dr. Weir and Col. Everett are standing on the balcony watching the aerial battle along with two marines armed only with surface-to-air rocket launchers. Were either these marines to fire their weapons to destroy the approaching dart they would incinerate everyone on the balcony. The situation is made worse when Col. Everett, in an attempt to protect Dr. Weir pushes her into the area directly behind the launchers. See more

Look, you show up here with your guns, and your brush cuts, but when it comes to actually saving the city, you turn to the scientists! And every time, what you ask is impossible.
Colonel Dillon Everett
When was the last time you slept, doctor?
Dr. Rodney McKay
Eehhhh, shut up, I have an idea.
