My point is that we haven't met a single living ancient who has been willing to share their knowledge freely with us and there could be an entire advance civilization of them out there somewhere in another galaxy.

William Arthur Ward once said, "Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning." When the Stargate was reopened in 1996, we opened a new way to learn about our galaxy and our universe.

Atlantis has had issues of its own. After moving to Earth in 2009 to help with the threat of the new Wraith ship, it spent about four years there undergoing repairs and allowing scientists to study it. It was finally scheduled to depart for the Pegasus galaxy in early 2013. Our trip to the Pegasus galaxy went horribly wrong, however. Our wormhole drive was sabotaged, landing us about 87 million light years off course. Several key systems were damaged, and we are now out of contact with Earth. We have no way to get home, no way to contact them and facing a terrible unknown and obviously powerful enemy.
With these new threats we must, once again, band everyone around us together to overcome our new foe. A daunting task to some, but as we have come to discover, this is our...
