I have never watched Atlantis, so I found a few details made no sense to me and there were things I was missing (not knowing the main character for starters) but this didn't really matter.

Underneath the Stargate setting is a drama featuring two men: A young soldier and an older scientist trapped together in a nuclear plant about to blow. Its a power struggle and a test to see if maturity can can conquer the arrogance of youth. Even without knowing the show, I could appreciate this.

Three stories, one review

The opening one was very good. Surtur is a much more interesting and likeable character than Thor and the Asigear and conceptually a major villain. Again Jackson and Vala have a grand adventure with some help from the team formed in the last series. The dynamics work well and the story plays out well.

Second story is a very good heist story (great for Vala) which continues the threat of the Asigear. This one is easily the best of the trilogy as it combines a great stand alone story with a deadly story arc.

Third story had a great build up to an anticlimactic and predictable ending, but don't let that get in the way of a great story. Its a good trilogy with great acting.

The story opens with a gag (in many ways typical of the original series) followed by some intrigue and then the body of the tale where Daniel and Vala much each focus on seperate missions. The most significant is Vala who puts together and leads her own team. The story is really about her insecurities and growth with a backdrop of clones and complex plots that must be unwoven.
Quite a good ending to a very good set.
Daniel Jackson does make a great character for audio as he like to talk and explain everything, so when he does it, it doesn't sound forced.

Sally Malcolm has created some very effective tension in this story. Set entirely on board the Sun Tsu (A Chinese ship) in hyperspace, the enviornment is limited, the cast is small and Daniel Jackson's ability to influence the captain is minimal. In short Jackson has very few resources available to resolve matters that he knows are citically serious.

Across the episode Jackson and the Captain are butting heads (A brave move on Jackson's part) Egos collide and that makes the real threat even harder to face. The real threat is a clone of Baal on board the ship which may know something about the upcoming attack and at the same time cannot be trusted toi speak the truth. Jackson needs time with the prisoner, but the captain won't give it to him and Vala can be trusted not to make matters worse.

The story concludes quite well with a good ending, but also with a cliff hanger that leads into the next story.
