Season 4 continues with four more excellent episodes on disc 2, every one of which has a great storyline and work both as standalone episodes and as part of the overall story arc.
TABULA RASA really does keep you in the dark as it's story gradually unravels as we try to work out just what is going on and what has happened to cause the total confusion that seems to have taken hold in the city.
MISSING gives most of the screen time to Keller and Teyla, as Jewel Staite (Keller) develops her character even further. THE SEER brings more of the only friendly Wraith that we have seen so far as well as more of a panicking Woolsey (Robert Picardo).
My favourite episode has to be TRAVELLERS with guest star, and very hot babe, Jill Wagner. I first saw her in the short live TV series BLADE and she makes just as big an impression here in ATLANTIS showing great screen chemistry with Joe Flanigan (Sheppard) so lets hope we see a lot more of her in the series to come.
Sheppard is captured by a group of humans who are part of a fleet of space travellers who have no home planet. The fleet lives in space and have found an abandoned ship that belonged to the ancients which they are attempting to take make their own by hacking into the ships systems. When they realize Sheppard has the ancient gene they try to use him to get the ship going.
Everyone on Atlantis is infected by a virus, which makes them lose their memorys so they don't know who they are or what they are doing in the city. Rodney only has a message which says find Teyla as she can save them, but no one knows who Teyla is and to make matters worse the only ones who seem to know each other are a group of soldiers who are hunting them down.
Teyla and Dr Keller become stranded on a planet where they believe the lost Athosian people have settled. However aside from a hostile warrior tribe, they find no one there except for a human who claims to be a Genii but is really a Wraith worshipper intent on finding the location of Atlantis at any cost.
The team meet a man who seems to be able to give a person a vision of future events just by touching them. He has no evil motives, in fact his daughter accompanies him to Atlantis so Keller can give him medical help for an illness. But the contact he has with Rodney and others in the city gives them visions which seem to show the destruction of Atlantis. So how should they react when faced with a possible alliance with the Wraith to defeat the Replicators?
