Stargate Atlantis is a spin-off of the tv series Stargate SG-1, which was based on the Stargate (1994) movie.
The plot centers on a multi-national team of explorers that take a one-way trip to the lost city of Atlantis in a distant galaxy, where a primitive human civilization is threatened by a sinister new alien enemy..the Wraith.
(05/23/06) - Gateworld recently spoke to writer Martin Gero about the upcoming third season.
"The Wraith are a presence in the galaxy, undeniably, but ... You know, it's interesting. Season One, we were just trying to get our feet beneath us and trying to figure out what kind of stories and what kinds of episodes we wanted to do," he said. "Season Two, for me, for the most part, felt like bigger, better, more confident Season One episodes."
"Season Three feels like, finally, we're doing some really fresh and interesting stuff. Part of the way that we've been able to do that is move away from Wraith stories," Gero said, "and we're doing much more stand-alone episodes, as well as introducing a new major villain this year."

(12/23/03) SCI FI Wire reports that Adam Baldwin (Firefly) is pursuing a role on the upcoming Stargate Atlantis, the spin-off of Stargate SG-1. "I'm hoping that can work out," he said during an interview at the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention. "We're working on it. Nothing set in stone just yet. I'm actually trying convince them to hire me." He also said at the interviews, "He's a military guy. I would be one of the supporting ensemble guys. Not the lead guy. I'm a little past my prime. They want someone in there in their early 20s. You've got to launch a show with a 20-something guy. That's just the nature of the beast these days. So I hopefully could jump in and add my experience to any new show."
The website SCI FI Wire reports that the SCI FI Channel has confirmed that it will spin off its hit Stargate SG-1 series into Stargate Atlantis, a weekly series set to premiere in the summer of 2004.
