Recap

Sheppard checks in on McKay and Zelenka, who are trying to fix the hyperdrive. McKay is worried it might not work, while Sheppard is concerned about their plan to steal a ZPM from the Replicators. Rodney has a suggestion: they get Dr. Weir to help them. He figures they can use her nanites to hack the Replicator systems, and can shut down her nanites if the Replicators try to hack back.

Episode Notes
Carter has been promoted to a full colonel, an event that occurs during the Ark of Truth and Continuum TV movies, which were originally due to air before Atlantis's fourth series, but were pushed back due to post-production issues, whcih screws up the timeline a bit.



Episode Quotes
Sheppard: How's it going, boys?
Rodney: Well, we'd be making a lot more progress if Timmy Torture wasn't trying to kill me every two seconds.
Zelenka: I'm not trying to... kill him.

Rodney: Let’s jack it up, see how far we can penetrate.
John: Penetrate?
Rodney: What?

Rodney: Sheppard, we’re coming in too steep, we need to ease up on the angle of re-entry.
Lee: In fact, you mean “entry.” You see, we never actually left…
Sam: Bill…
Lee: Oh right, right.

Dr. Bill Lee: Space is quite vast.
Ellis: You don't say.



Episode Goofs
The backpack Dr Lee is wearing when he's beamed aboard the Apollo is not the same as the one he was wearing when he stepped through the Stargate moments earlier.
