As an officer, coming up for reassignment can sometimes be like opening a present.

Where will I go this time? What country will I get to see?

The Air Force came to my house and escorted me to Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado.

I couldn’t help but wonder what NORAD would want to do with me, a simple Air Force lieutenant with decent combat skills.

Next thing I knew, I was sitting at a table, being told about Stargates, wormholes, and aliens of other worlds.

Okay. I think I could handle this. At least I’m still on American soil, right? Wrong.

Two weeks aboard the Daedalus and cabin fever was beginning to set in.

Spending time in the gym helped, then we were told we’d be beamed down into the city.

I thought it might hurt, just little tingling sensation though. I had squeezed my eyes shut for it, and when I opened them,

I found myself standing in a large colorful room. Turning, I saw a man, a colonel based on his wings, standing next to a woman.

As I took in the scene, my ears were barely able to register the words that were being spoken.

“Welcome to Atlantis.”
