Emails from the SGC (and Homeworld Command!) to…

The paperback edition for The Drift comes out on Wednesday and if that’s not reason enough to celebrate…

In the spirit of turkeys, stuffing, sweet potatoes (and a few glasses of scotch thrown in for good measure),  Stargate Atlantis Legacy novelist Melissa Scott and I have put our collective skulls together to provide you with a bit of ‘what-if’ — a few rounds of email between the Stargate Atlantis team (brought to you by Melissa) and  the SG-1 team (and General Jack O’Neill, of course!) brought to you by… me.  (and yep, if you’ve read the books, there’s a few chestnuts… Or I should say “Easter Eggs” in these emails).

Below you’ll find Teal’c’s not-so-happy response to a rather terse email from SGA team member Ronon Dex which you can read over on Melissa’s site.

O’Neill.

At your request, I obtained what can only be defined as a preliminary report from Ronon Dex in regards to the Atlantis expedition’s encounters with the Wraith. While I admire the former Wraith Runner’s fighting skills, this report provides little intelligence regarding the enemy in question. I must regrettably ask for your assistance if we are to better understand this foe.

Sheppard,

Sounds like someone’s got a team member who doesn’t wanna play nice and share. What’s the deal? Do you want a one-way ticket back to Earth? Even with the chair gone, I’m sure McMurdo wouldn’t mind another warm body around.  Especially one who just happens to have that damned ATA gene.  They’d love your help poking around the lower levels at the Antarctic outpost. Plenty of doohickeys down there. Trust me, I know.

Either get Teal’ what he wants or pack your bags. Don’t forget your fleece.
