Summary: Trapped further from home than most of the planet could imagine, with an ancient enemy waking and feeding across the galaxy, the it was expected that Sentinels would awaken among the members of the Atlantis mission. But after everything he has experienced, John Sheppard never expected to come online in Atlantis.
Guides only come online when there is a compatible Sentinel nearby that they can bond with. So, when Rodney McKay felt his Guide abilities start to emerge, he knew there was a Sentinel somewhere on the city for him – but he never expected that Sentinel would be John Sheppard.
Together, the two of them have to come to terms with their newly forming relationship, a ravenous enemy and mysteries that will take them into the heart of the Andromeda galaxy.
Atlantis is in the Pegasus Dwarf Irregular Galaxy, which is approximately 3,001,000 light years from Earth. It is a companion to the Andromeda Galaxy, which is approximately 2,538,000 light years from Earth.
