Storyline

Sheppard and his team are lured to a planet and are soon put on trial for crimes against the people of the Pegasus galaxy. In flashbacks, the three judge tribunal recounts the indictment against them including the re-awakening of the Wraith and the various missions where at least a few, if not more, innocent bystanders were killed. Sheppard does his best to argue that on balance, fewer were killed by their presence than would have been the case if they had never been there. A least one of the judges is clearly determined to find them guilty while a second seems far more sympathetic. It's left to Richard Woolsey, who has now joined them, to plead the rest of their case. A lawyer by profession, Richard clearly knows how the game is played and focuses on that third judge. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

The council's plan for punishment is to maroon the Atlantis core team on a planet where they removed the DHD from the gate so as to prevent any gate travelers from ever returning from there. However, the Atlanteans could of course easily use a puddle jumper to retrieve their people because the little gate ships have their own on-board remote dialing devices. See more »

Quotes

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: You gonna tell me how you managed to pull this one off?
Richard Woolsey: Well, I'd say it was a combination of things. My legal skills, my eloquence, the indisputable logic of my arguments... and the bribe I offered Kelore.

A complete waste of time
25 October 2008 | by VarganSee all my reviews

"Inquisition" feels like a gust of sickly wind from the past come to haunt us and taunt us. It is a standard Flashbacks-episode AKA rubbish-TV, using a trial as the o' so unoriginal vehicle with which to torment the viewer with clips from earlier episodes.

Between these old clips the episode treats us to a flat, boring and stale story. Wholly unimaginitive, this tripe does nothing but antagonize the fans of the show.

It is garbage like this that makes us have to suffer the term "all new"... I really hoped TV-shows had evolved past the use of this shameful type of filler-episode, but apparently I did so in vain.
