    When SG-1 discovers what it believes to be the remnants of the Lost City of the Ancients - the originators of the Stargates - Stargate Command launches an investigation. A new team of explorers, headed by civilian Dr. Elizabeth Weir, travels to the distant Pegasus Galaxy, where it discovers an advanced but deserted city on the ocean floor, a group of nomadic humans and a deadly enemy that feeds on humans as an energy source!

Several weeks ago we relayed a report that Stargate: Atlantis - Rising, the 90-minute pilot of the spin-off series, would reach DVD by itself in June, ahead of a November release of The Complete 1st Season.

MGM has now announced the first part of that equation, verifying a slightly-earlier-than- expected June 7th release of "Rising." Clocking in at a whopping $25.98 SRP for what appears to be a single-disc release, actual running time is 88 minutes and there are a few extras to be found:
  • Audio Commentary by Director Martin Wood and Actor Joe Flanigan
  • "Preview to Atlantis" Featurette
  • Sneak Peek: "Stargate Atlantis" Season 2
  • Stargate Alliance Videogame Trailer
  • Stargate Alliance Videogame Art

Specs put this in 16x9 Widescreen (1.78:1) video format, with English: 5.1 Surround and Closed Captioning for the Hearing Impaired. Look for the regular cast of Stargate: Atlantis to be accompanied by SG-1 cast such as Richard Dean Anderson as "Jack O'Neill" and Michael Shanks as "Daniel Jackson." Also look for Robert Patrick from the later seasons of The X-Files.
