Episode cast overview:
Gerry Durand ...
Marine Captain


On a distant moon, Sheppard, McKay, Ronon Dex and Teyla find an elaborate subterranean base. The technology is anything but up to date and the base seems to be abandoned, until McKay decides to restore power. When he does so, a scientist materializes and it would seem that he had developed a means of using transporter technology to store a person's essence. The technology was developed to save as many of their people as possible from the Wraith culling and there are several thousand of them in stasis. As the decrepit station begins to fail, Teyla is pulled into stasis by one of the surviving scientists forcing Sheppard to risk his own life to save all of them. Written by garykmcd

Another good episode for the third season
14 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

Stargate Atlantis offers another episode which is way more intelligent than it seems. Under the surface, we get a very interesting story about sacrifice and trying the best to save your people.

The crew arrive to a space station, that seems deserted, but soon they discover that it is not. Some people were put in a machine, the last survivors of a planet, in hope that they would be able to go back there after the Wraith left.

What we get from here is another episode with dodgy acting, and some "weird" science, but with a cool story and some good moments, and where the team will have to face some tough situations. Stargate Atlatis keeps being smarter than it should be. Come for the brand recognition, stay for the warm stories.
