Storyline

In an alternate universe, Detective John Sheppard is with the Las Vegas Police Department and begins to investigate a strange series of murders. This Sheppard is a bit down on his luck, over-promoted and barely getting by. What Sheppard is dealing with is a Wraith who has made it to Earth and is building a device to send out a signal of some sort. Of course, he has no idea what a Wraith is but a senior member of the Atlantis expedition, Rodney McKay, decides to take Sheppard into their confidence and tell him about the Pegasus galaxy and their fear that the Wraith is trying to send out a signal with Earth's location. While they succeed, they may have opened a rift with other parallel universes. This Dr. McKay, who is cool and smooth, actually visited Atlantis in another dimension once and wonders what may now happen there. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

In the scene near the end of the episode where the A-10 Thunderbolts make a strafing run, you hear the one plane firing what sounds like a heavy machine gun. The A-10 does not have a machine gun, it has a Gatling cannon (GAU-8/A Avenger) and when fired sounds like a short buzz because it fires supersonic rounds at 4,200 rounds per minute. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Radek Zelenka: [Discussing a fugitive Wraith] He could have abandoned whatever resources he had and just gone into hiding.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh yes, he probably got a job as a Klingon at Star Trek: The Experience.
Richard Woolsey: That shut down.
Dr. Radek Zelenka: Really? Damn, I wanted to see that.

Not really Atlantis, but .... ???
27 January 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is Not an ordinary/normal Stargate Atlantis episode. The actor plays new, different characters, in a Vegas/detective story, in something that feels like a bad copy attempt of a CSI episode, with influence from SgA, lock stock, rfa dream, etc.

The show is canceled and this episode sends the clear message that they want to show that they can do other roles/films/things, like a CV so that they will have the possibility of getting new work. It's a mess of cool filmtechnics (that sometimes works), a lot of hard music and ambition to show off, that isn't consequent nor thought through. They could have done this ep in the middle of the season, but when it's the second last episode, it sucks.

SUMMARY:

If you've followed the series, this episode is most likely to be a very big disappointment.

If you are a young teenager or never seen the show before, and like sci-fi ... you will probably love it.

PS! this ep is still need to see since it explains some events in the last episode. DS!
