New details are in for the next two episodes of Stargate Atlantis, courtesy of SCI FI Channel.
First up is "Trio," which focuses on Rodney McKay, Samantha Carter, and Jennifer Keller. The episode airs Friday, February 8. Here's how the network describes the episode:Col. Samantha Carter joins Dr. McKay and Dr. Keller on a mission to convince the inhabitants of an off-world village rocked by frequent tremors, to move to a more stable part of the continent. But en route to the village, Dr. McKay plunges into a sinkhole, falling twenty feet to the bottom of a large subterranean chamber. Crawling to the edge of the rupture, Carter and Dr. Keller are relieved to see that McKay is unhurt.
Suddenly, they feel the ground beneath them give way and they too drop out of sight.Realizing that they have fallen into a section of an old Genii mining facility they begin to search for a way out. But every attempt to escape the confines of the chamber seems to put them in further jeopardy, underscored by the constant tremors that shake their prison with ever greater force.
In "Midway," Sam invites her old friend Teal'c (guest star Christopher Judge) to Atlantis to coach Ronon, who is under review by the I.O.A.:Mr. Coolidge is the newest member of the I.O.A. and openly distrustful of alien participation in any facet of the Stargate program. Despite his bias, the I.O.A. has entrusted him with interviewing Teyla Emmagan and Ronon Dex about their suitability to continue as members of the Atlantis expedition. This does not bode well for Ronon, who is next on the list to travel to Earth for questioning.Colonel Carter, concerned that Ronan's temper will explode under intense cross-examination, asks an old friend to travel to Atlantis to serve as his mentor -- Teal'c, of the Jaffa.
But Ronon, insulted by the implication that he can't handle himself, makes no effort to befriend Teal'c and their stay on the Midway station, en route to Earth, does little to improve the situation. Unbeknownst to anyone, a plan by the Wraith to invade the Midway station is about to be initiated, and an interview with Mr. Coolidge will be the very least of their problems.
"Midway" will premiere February 15 on SCI FI! Don't miss new episodes every Friday night at 10 p.m. (9 Central) on SCI FI Channel in the United States, and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Sky One in the U.K.
