Storyline

Returning from an off-world mission in a puddle jumper, Sheppard, Teyla, Ronan and McKay suddenly find themselves in a ship that swings wildly between complete power failure and power surges that are blowing out some of the ship's systems. When they manage to get back to Atlantis, a diagnostics check reveals no problem whatsoever with the jumper. Soon however, systems across the city are affected in the same way. McKay is having difficulty isolating the source but it finds him by shutting down all but his computer. When he finally manages to communicate with it, he and everyone else is in shock at who it claims to be. Written by garykmcd

One of only 2 good episodes in seasons 4 and 5
11 May 2018 | by tomasajdariSee all my reviews

This episode goes back to SG-1-like quality and offers a powerful emotional and character driven story. The CGI shots at the beggining and in the middle are quite good (for that era).

The actress playing FRAN/Weir is beautiful, which is a major +

One wonders why the rest of the last 2 seasons wasn't anywhere near close to this episode.
