It's not easy being a member of the Atlantis expedition. You fight the Wraith (who would happily turn you into dinner), you battle technology-gone-bad called Replicators, and what thanks do you get for saving countless lives in the process? If you happen to be on Sheppard's team tonight, you get put on trial for crimes against humanity. When an interplanetary council tires of the team's shenanigans in the Pegasus Galaxy, Woolsey must find his inner Perry Mason to win an acquittal for the heroes. — Michael Chant

Last week, Don discovered that Charlie now works for the LAPD as a consultant. Don also told Agent McGowan (the steely Keith Carradine) that he will leave the Bureau if Charlie isn't reissued a security clearance. That probably wouldn't upset McGowan too much since he seems to loathe Don, which will make his decision all the more interesting when he hands it down tonight. Meanwhile, Don assists a veteran FBI agent (Henry Winkler) track an elusive con man who has evaded capture for years. — Tim Holland
