The Real World

Stargate AtlantisDr. Weir’s day is not off to a good start. She awakens in a mental hospital and finds that the Atlantis mission has – according to psychiatrist Dr. Fletcher and his staff – been a hallucinatory fantasy she has clung to in the wake of a traumatic accident. General Jack O’Neill, who Weir believes to be part of the “Stargate program,” visits her to reassure her that there is, in fact, no such program. Plagued by persistent visions of something stalking her, Weir finally stops resisting treatment and, according to Fletcher, shows signs of improving drastically. At this point, however, Weir’s grip on reality is loosened when she opens a door and finds herself staring into the stargate’s event horizon itself. Is she losing her mind, or is this vision an indication that the Atlantis mission is real, and her crew is trying to retrieve her?
