- ""Lord of the Rings." "Lord of the Rings!" You know, when they light all those signal fires on the mountain tops? You saw that, right?! So, OK ..."
- —Bill Lee
When The Trust infiltrated Atlantis and rigged the Zero Point Module to overload the next time that the city dialed Earth in 2005, Lee and a team planned to send a team to P4M-399, which would send a subspace communication to the Daedalus, who would then relay the warning to Atlantis. Lee cited the signal fires through the mountain tops of the saga's third movie as a comparisons. This was Lee's second choice as his first pop culture referent - the "Twilight Bark" from 101 Dalmatians - proved too obscure (or probably too passé) for the Air Force personnel in attendance.
