|Stargate Atlantis: A Necessary Evil|
May 30 2008
Stargate Atlantis: A Necessary Evil is the second audiobook released by Big Finish Productions based on the Stargate franchise, though the first based on Stargate: Atlantis. Written by Sharon Gosling, it is an hour-long "episode" of the show, set during season 4 of Stargate: Atlantis with flashbacks to season 3 after "Common Ground" and prior to "First Strike", featuring Torri Higginson as the voice of Elizabeth Weir along with Timothy Watson as the voice of an unknown character.
"This planet that you love so much... If you were not hidden, it would not exist, or at least not like this."
When Sheppard’s team encounter a culture with phase shift technology that keeps their entire population invisible - and immaterial - to the outside world, it looks like Atlantis might have found the perfect protection from the Wraith. Eager to make a trade for the technology, Doctor Weir embarks on a diplomatic mission to negotiate with the people of Lannavulin. But once there, it becomes apparent that not everyone is happy with the planet’s status quo...
This story assumes that Doctor Weir was mind-probed by the Asurans following her capture at the beginning of season four. During the probe, the incident she recalls is set during season three, after Common Ground and prior to First Strike.
