==Main information==
 
A massive city of the [[Ancients]] filled with untapped technology, believed to have served as the central nexus for all Ancient activity in the [[Pegasus|Pegasus Galaxy]]. Now that humans from [[Earth]] have found the lost city, it has become their base of operations in exploring the galaxy. Six angular pylons connect to a central island, which includes the command tower. The entire city is normally powered by three [[ZPM|Zero Point Modules]], though they have expired. Power is now supplied by numerous [[Naquadah Generators]] brought from Earth.
 
 
The city itself is capable of space flight, and originally resided on the surface of Earth, on the continent that became Antarctica. Between five and 10 million years ago the Ancients left Earth with the great city, bringing it to a planet in the Pegasus Galaxy. After a war there with the [[Wraith]], the Ancients submerged the city in an ocean and returned to Earth through the [[Stargate]]. The city was found thousands of years later by an [[Atlantis Expedition|expedition]] team from Earth, led by [[Elizabeth Weir]].
 
 
 
Upon their arrival, the city's systems detected the presence of the Earth team and began reactivating lights and power systems as people approached them -- depleting the overall power supply and shrinking the great shield that held back the water of the ocean in which Atlantis was submerged. Automated systems brought the city back to the surface before the shield failed, though this has left Atlantis vulnerable to attack. The city now sits as an island in the middle of an ocean, with a large land mass only 25 minutes travel by [[Puddle Jumper]] -- the small ships left behind in Atlantis by the Ancients.
 
 
Since Atlantis' Stargate is believed to be the only one capable of connecting to Earth in the [[Milky Way|Milky Way Galaxy]], and to prevent the capture of the city by the Wraith, self destruct codes were given to the officers of the facility. Two personnel are required to administer codes which will overload the Naquadah Generators, and effectively cause a 20 kiloton-equivalent explosion.
 
 
The arms of the city, as well as various other locales within, can be accessible via transport chambers. Atlantis includes numerous buildings of various sizes, with the center facility -- the control tower -- containing the Stargate. The city contains a variety of different resources, including:
