Apparently able to reprogram their base code, the Replicators have attacked and defeated the Ancients who had only recently taken over control of the city. General O'Neil and Richard Woolsey had stayed behind to negotiate with the Ancients and are hiding out in a remote part of the city. It doesn't really matter however since O'Neil's standing orders are that Atlantis is to be destroyed with a nuclear device should it ever be taken over by hostile forces. Sheppard, Weir, McKay and Beckett collect Teyla and Ronon Dex en route and devise a plan to surreptitiously enter the city and rescue their colleagues. If they are to be successful McKay will also have to find a way to destroy the Replicators before they reprogram themselves and make their weapons useless. Written by garykmcd

A Replicator makes reference to the gate-ship Sheppard flew through the star-gate, a name McKay and Ford had proposed and Sheppard declined in favor of calling them Puddle Jumpers. See more »


Rodney states that with the Jumper's cloaking device not functioning there was no way to get close to Atlantis without being seen. However in Stargate: Atlantis: Grace Under Pressure it is established that jumpers are able to function underwater as a submersible vehicle, they could have simply approached the city underwater to avoid detection while the city's sensors were down.

Major General Jack O'Neill: [to Sheppard, after being told who has come to rescue him] Dr. Beckett, is it? Well I'm comforted.
Dr. Carson Beckett: [whispering] What's that supposed to mean?
