Atlantis

The Lost City of Atlantis

Atlantis is the Lost City of the Ancients, a large technologically advanced structure constructed many years ago, approximately the size of Manhattan. The Ancients left our galaxy several million years ago for the Pegasus Galaxy. Once there the Ancients seeded the galaxy and life began to flourish where once there was none.

History

The City of Atlantis was originally situated on Earth on the continent of Antartica. When the Plague created by the Ori spread through the Milky Way galaxy, the City of Atlantis was launched from it's home, leaving behind a small outpost and a few Ancient individuals, to set course for the Pegasus galaxy where it remains to this day. (ATL: Rising, Part 1)

When the Wraith began to threaten the Ancients in the Pegasus Galaxy, the Ancient Council decided to sink the city underwater for protection. However, this was only a temporary protective measure until the Wraith arrived at the planet, approximately the same time Doctor Elizabeth Weir accidently was thrown back in time to Atlantis. It was decided, by the Council, to abandon the city back to Earth and to leave Weir in stasis until Atlantis was reactivated in the future, leaving this message for anybody returning from Earth:

"In the hope of spreading new life in a galaxy where their appeared to be none. Soon the new life grew, prospered. Here *McKay and others talking over the Hologram* Exchange knowledge and friendship. *Above her head a sort of map appears* in time a thousand worlds bore the fruit of life in this form. Then one day our people stepped foot on a dark world where a terrible enemy slept. Never before had we encountered beings with powers that rivaled our own. In our over confidence, we weren't prepared and outnumbered. The enemy fed upon defenseless human worlds like a great Scourge until finally only Atlantis remained. This city's great shield was powerful enough to withstand their terrible weapons but here we were besieged for many years in an offer to save the last of our kind we submerged our great city into the ocean. The Atlantis Stargate was the one and only link back to Earth from this Galaxy, and those who remained used it to return to that world that was once home. There the last survivors of Atlantis lived out the remainder of their lives. This city was left to slumber, in the hope that our kind would one day return."

Due to Weir's displacement in time, an Ancient by the name of Janis set up a fail-safe mechanism to allow Atlantis to rise from the ocean in the future when reactivated. With Janis returned to Earth and Weir in stasis, Atlantis remained frozen, except during Weir's various 3000 year awakenings to rotate the ZPMs, until the Atlantis Expedition from Earth arrived at Atlantis in 2004.
