Stargate Atlantis (2004) - 3x15 - The Game

Plot Outline
Major Lorne (Kavan Smith) discovers a planet with dozens of satellites in geosynchronous orbit but oddly inhabitants no further advanced then being themselves in a renaissance period and even stranger a flag baring Rodney McKay’s (David Hewlett) likeness. Informing Atlantis Rodney and Lt. Col. Sheppard (Joe Flanigan) realize a game they had found years earlier on Atlantis might actually be much more than just a game.

Discovering what they believed to be an Ancient sociological simulation program the two had for the past two years used Ancient consoles to build, advance and compete their own city states against one another. Now realizing the simulation was in fact sending orders to real life people Weir (Torri Higginson) demands the two go down to set things right. Meeting each of their cities representatives, Nola (Laura Harris) and Baden (David Dayan Fisher), McKay and Sheppard try to explain the mistake they have made. But when it turns out their innocent interference caused the once peaceful neighbors to become warring city-states the roles of diplomats seem to be out of their hands.

Before they have time to usher in a new peace the two cities take matters into their own hands and embark on a world war with much more advanced weapons then McKay or Sheppard were aware of. The two bickering friends must find a way to stop it or be themselves responsible for what could be the destruction of two whole civilizations.
