The day Rodney McKay has long been waiting for finally arrives: the inaugural test of the interstellar subway that will link the Pegasus and Milky Way galaxies. Arranged as a series of interconnected gates, the traveler only stops at a mid-way transfer station. With Sheppard at the controls of a puddle jumper, the test is uneventful and works quite well. McKay does catch one anomaly however - a passing ship traveling just below the speed of light, apparently belonging to the Ancients. When they make contact, they learn that the Ancients' ship had lost its hyper-drive and the Daedalus offers assistance. Once back on Atlantis, the Ancients have only one request - that the Earthlings leave Atlantis immediately. The Replicators however also have their eye on the city Written by garykmcd

Goofs Wow
23 September 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The crew is back in S.G.C because Atlanteans have taken over command in Atlantis. The replicators come attacking the base, and due to some rewriting of their code, they can now attack atlanteans. The Atlantis team (le doctor, Sheppard, McKay and the woman) want to return to Atlantis to stop the replicator invasion.

To get there they need to use the star gate, and to use it, they need access. So to distract the scientist guarding the access list, McKay has Elisabeth pose as a wow player.

In this episode the scientist in sgc mentiones he has a level 75 mage in world of warcraft, coz he has an expansion already. (that expansion is not out yet, but being in the position he is in, that actually is remotely possible.) However, the expansion from world of warcraft only let's players extend their characters to level 70. As in goof. Zest.
