Stargate Atlantis (2004) - 3x14 - Tao of Rodney

 
Plot Outline
Trying to preserve power by turning off all the non-essential systems the Ancients recently activated before being killed by the replicators, Rodney McKay (David Hewlett) mistakenly is hit by an energy beam from a mysterious device. His worst fears are quickly laid to rest when Dr. Beckett (Paul McGillion) gives him a clean bill of health and returns him to active duty.

Not long after the incident Rodney begins to display advanced powers such as amplified senses and telekinesis. Unable to ignore his powers Rodney and Zelenka (David Nykl) discover the machine that zapped him actually accelerated his evolution. Basking in his new found super power, exponentially growing intelligence and equally bloated ego the team struggles to deal with the new Rodney. But envy turns to concern when Weir uncovers the true nature of the ancient device. Designed to accelerate a personís evolution it was designed to speed up the process of ascension. However without being able to achieve the same advancement in mental state the machine killed most the ancients that ever tried to use it.

Death looming as he continues to physically evolve Rodney tries to crack the secret of ascension in quantified terms. With no success in site he resolves to use his final days making peace with his colleagues and friends even if they arenít ready to give up on him just yet.

4.) Perhaps it's me, but when did Sheppard spend time with the ancients?
Perhaps I'm blacking that episode out?
Other than that... GREAT episode! :D

5.) @ DRoidE:
i don't know the name of the episode but Sheppard definitely spent almost a half year with a group of ancients. that was the case when Sheppard, tela, ronin, mc kay and the doctor were exploring a planet and found some kind of "cave".  the entrance of the cave was some kind of portal and when Sheppard tried to put his hand through it, he was pulled inside, landing in a cave with no exit back through the portal. what he didn't realize was, that time went on much faster on his side of the portal. after "days" of waiting he decided to leave the cave an then he found a village where a group of ancients was trying to ascent.  and so on...
