Publishers SummaryEdit

"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...

Authors NoteEdit

I've always love the character of Elizabeth Weir, so it was great privilege to write for her in this format. The beauty of the two-voice scenario is that it really gives a writer (a hopefully, the audience) a chance to get inside the character's head in a way that can't be shown on television. I've often wondered what Weir would do in a situation like this - it's rare that she finds herself outside the city environment, so it was fun to work out how she would react to scenes of wealth and contrasting poverty, not to mention extreme stress.

Working with Torri was wonderful - her enthusiasm, innate sense of timing and her empathy for Weir really made the script come to life. The memory of listening to her brilliant impression of a hungry Wraith still makes me smile.

I hope listeners enjoy the story - and I hope that one day we might see more of Doctor Weir.

Chronological PlacementEdit

This audiobook 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.
