Stargate Atlantis: The Real World

Dr. Weir awakens in a psychiatric hospital only to be told her memories of the last two years of her life were false; just a figment of a psychotic episode she has had over the last two days, after collapsing after a treaty negotiation. Even a visit by Gen. O’Neill to tell her that Stargate Command and an off world Atlantis doesn’t really exist, doesn’t convince her. Then, strange events and changes she sees at the hospital cause her even more doubt about if what is going on around her is really real.

Can she discover the truth of her situation, and can the people she thinks are real back in Atlantis; rescue her from this seeming nightmare?

Episode Notes
At one point, Dr. Weir (Torri Higginson) opens a closet and finds a Stargate event horizon with no actual Stargate. Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks) had the same experience in the Stargate SG-1 Season Three episode "Legacy", in which Richard Dean Anderson (Jack O'Neill) also appeared.
