I mean, I could see it. The worst criminals are sent to the planet of Atlantis in the far off Pegasus galaxy, and there's international spy and espionage expert Dr. Elizabeth Weir, notorious for her extremely bloody coup of South America before she was finally captured. There's Dr. Rodney McKay, physicist and bomb expert, brilliant and unstable, who blew up a populated solar system and built the first ZPM bombs against Geneva conventions (plus, his habit of killing his staff when they piss him off), and Dr. Carson Beckett, who was convicted of crimes against humanity for human experimentation and cloning. Ooh, and John Sheppard, former black ops military assassin and mass murderer (or serial killer, or both), sociopath and weapons expert, who used the first ZPM bomb to level Afghanistan and make it unfit for human occupation *ever* and a free agent who takes assassination contracts for fun. Ford, his drug-addicted second in command with a gift for torture. Bates and Lorne, John's favorite henchman who are all about the mass death and destruction. Zelenka this sneaky engineer who used to help Rodney cover up his crimes and does other brilliant, horrible things. And they all meet at Atlantis and it is totally True Love Foever. Cause they are totally like, huh, we could rule this galaxy. And kill lots and lots of people.
Oh *wow*. Could you see them taking over Atlantis from poor, poor Sumner? *Man*. John would totally get on wavelength with the violent warrior Athosians led by Teyla, and Elizabeth would lead them to a takeover of the Pegasus galaxy. And all the prisoners are given to Carson to cackle over madly and Rodney's all, when do I get to play with bigger weapons? LEt's try for something *galaxy-breaking* and everyone lives happily ever after. And then they decide to conquer the Milky Way.
Maybe Ronon could be like, the last freedom fighter with the sad little Genii behind him, which of course is so sad because Rodnney's like, can I blow it up, and John's like, can't I go in alone with a couple of knives and a rifle, and Carson's whining, but I need more people for my iratus bug experiments! And Elizabeth ruffles all their hair and says indulgently, sure, we can do *all of that*. And bring me Kolya's head on a platter. And pick up some milk on the way home.
It would happen like that. It would totally happen like that.
