Well, that was an interesting dream. We went to a planet that seemed to be covered in a mist. The energy readings were off the charts. Rodney assessed it to be powerful enough to allow us to dial Earth and go home through the stargate. Almost as soon as we got there, I got a weird feeling about it all. I took Teyla shopping, and then we went back to my place, an upscale bachelor pad on a lake, complete with a pool and a view to die for. I introduced Teyla to beer, and then a couple of my buddies from the service showed up.
I couldn't put my finger on what was wrong, until I got to the house. I never lived in a house like that, and the Johnny Cash poster I have in Atlantis was there on the wall. And then when Dex and Mitch showed up...Turned out, the mist on that planet is a race of noncorporeal beings with the ability to get inside our heads. They allowed us to think we made contact with earth, and that we could worm hole back to the Milky Way. It was all an illusion.
Apparently whenever that stargate is activated, some of their race is sacrificed for the energy that is used. So in order to keep us from killing them, they provided illusions that were based on our thoughts and what not, and therefore not entirely accurate. I was the first to figure out something was wrong, which hey. Kudos to me.
In the end they accepted our promise not to use their energy to try and get home, because as I told him yeah, we want to go home, but not at the price of all those lives. Besides, we volunteered for the Atlantis Expedition, and I for one am not ready to turn my back on it. Not to go back to Earth, where there isn't all that much to go back to besides like football, pizza, and beer.
