A seemingly quiet day – declared a “day of rest” for the Atlantis crew – brings a mystery man into Dr. Weir’s life, pure pain to Sheppard as Ronon introduces him to Satedan sports, and absolutely no takers on riding shotgun with Dr. Beckett for a fishing trip. It also brings frustration to Rodney when two of his junior science officers stumble upon – and activate – an Ancient device of unknown function deep within the bowels of the city. Dr. Beckett clears both of them to return to duty, finding no indication that the device affected their health in any way. And before what started as a quiet day is out, it will bring death to several Atlantis crew members, including one of the most vital members of the team.
