Storyline

Sheppard and his team are lured to a planet and are soon put on trial for crimes against the people of the Pegasus galaxy. In flashbacks, the three judge tribunal recounts the indictment against them including the re-awakening of the Wraith and the various missions where at least a few, if not more, innocent bystanders were killed. Sheppard does his best to argue that on balance, fewer were killed by their presence than would have been the case if they had never been there. A least one of the judges is clearly determined to find them guilty while a second seems far more sympathetic. It's left to Richard Woolsey, who has now joined them, to plead the rest of their case. A lawyer by profession, Richard clearly knows how the game is played and focuses on that third judge. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

At the end of the episode Woolsey and Sheppard are smoking cigars and drinking scotch on the balcony, a classic scene from Boston Legal (2004) where, at the end of each episode, Denny Crane and Alan Shaw are smoking cigars and drinking scotch. See more »

Goofs

The council's plan for punishment is to maroon the Atlantis core team on a planet where they removed the DHD from the gate so as to prevent any gate travelers from ever returning from there. However, the Atlanteans could of course easily use a puddle jumper to retrieve their people because the little gate ships have their own on-board remote dialing devices. See more »

Quotes

Richard Woolsey: I was Harvard Law Review. I was chief counsel of the US Army Corps of Engineers. Prior to that, I was an appellate advocate for Hartshorne & Slaughter, one of the most prestigious litigation boutiques in all New York City. Believe me, I can handle three tribal elders with a stack of papyrus.

Why?
19 June 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Every show has them. Flashback episodes. 5 minutes into Inquisition, I went "oh god, not another trial episode" 30 seconds later, I said "oh god, not a flashback episode!" I skipped forward by 3 minutes 3 times, and saw old footage everywhere. I then turned off my TV.

I don't understand it. Nobody likes flashback episodes. We've seen this before. Either I remember the episode you're showing me, and the footage is pointless, or I don't remember, and it's equally pointless as your 30 second clip will mean nothing to me. If you're out of footage, make the season shorter. Do not put fans of your show through one of these garbage episodes.

It's a shame series resort to episodes like this, and I really hope we'll one day see a good show devoid of flashback episodes. 0.0001/10

Avoid this episode at all costs. It's boring and a complete waste of time.
