After yet another fruitless search for the missing Teyla, Sheppard returns to Atlantis, only to find it deserted. Worse yet, the city isn't just abnormally hot, but the entire ocean has completely dried up, leaving a sandy desert! Sheppard then finds a hologram of an aged Dr. McKay, telling him that a solar flare had sent him 48,000 years into the future. Once he learns the demise of Atlantis and everyone on it, and worse yet that the sun in the solar system is dying and he won't survive there much longer, he and the holographic McKay must find a way to send Sheppard home and potentially change all of this.

Based on estimates of the ages of the two Weirs in "Before I Sleep", a person in stasis ages one year for every (approximately) 160-165 years of real time that passes. Since he had been in stasis 700-800 years when he returned to Atlantis from the future, Sheppard was physically 4-5 years older than when the episode began. See more

I was just gonna blow it up.
