Book Description

The journey begins

After her mother’s death, Cassie Fraiser is moving on. So she thinks. But there are dangerous forces at work and she soon finds herself caught up in a situation far beyond her control. It’s a good thing Colonel Carter was keeping an eye on her.

But while Carter rallies SG-1 to Cassie’s aid, events on Atlantis are going from bad to worse. Facing a deadly plague and a computer virus that’s shutting down the city, it looks like Colonel Sheppard’s team will provide rich pickings for the incoming Wraith hive ship.

But sometimes events galaxies apart are connected in unexpected ways— and help comes from the most surprising of places. In this action-packed story, Sabine C. Bauer brings together the heroes of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis in the fight of their lives…

TRANSITIONS

“I repeat, Colonel. What the hell happened?”

“Uh…”

Oh damn, he knew that frown. She was about to techno-babble. Given the way his head felt, he probably wouldn’t survive that. “Twenty-five words or less, and no more than three syllables each, Carter!”

“Jack! Sam!” Daniel came climbing over the mounds of rubble, Teal’c in his wake. They looked a little singed around the edges, but otherwise seemed to be in full working order. “You guys okay?” gasped Daniel. “What the hell happened?”

“That’s what I’m trying to find out. Carter!”

“When the missile struck the car, the blast took out the gas pumps and set off whatever fuel was left in the underground tanks. Twenty-four words, sir.” She grinned. “There was a chance that some of the shrapnel might hit the chopper, but I hadn’t actually dared count on it. I guess there was a little more gas in those tanks than I’d thought…”

1.0 out of 5 stars Too many continuity issues September 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
It took me a long time to decide whether I should give this book one or two stars.
The plot-idea isn't all bad, but for anyone who has watched more than two episodes of either series it just doesn't work. The most obvious mistake the author makes is that the timeline is completely out of sync - while the SG1 part of the story takes place somewhere at the end of season 8 (ie somewhere in the middle of season 1 of Atlantis), most events of the second half of season two of Atlantis seem to have already happened. That alone devalues the book a lot since supposedly it tries to fill in the blanks between seasons 8 and 9 of SG-1.
Where things are getting even weirder is the assumption that 10,000 years ago Atlantis left earth for Pegasus (and not from Antarctica), while in the series the came back then.
Without wanting to give away too much, smaller mistakes she makes are confusing Atlantis shields with the cloak, making the shield necessary to stop Atlantis from flooding, giving the Wraith shields and small things like the fact that the SGC is aware of Baal's clones, when they shouldn't be yet and having the Korolev already be in service (ZPM in tow).
I truly enjoyed the Legacy series (written by different authors) and can recommend them to anyone who enjoyed SGA, and I believe there are some good SG-1 books out there as well. This one however may have worked as a SG-1 novel only (to solve all those pesky continuity problems) but as it stands, even though it's not badly written per se, is just too flawed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Are we reading the same book? January 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
That is literally the question I ask myself right now, looking at these other glowing reviews. "A book by a Stargate Fan"? Sabine Bauer proves in this book her knowledge of all things stargate SG-1, pre season 9. After that point, forget about it. Now, the idea behind the story was solid, that
SPOILER ALERT

SPOILER ALERT

SPOILER ALERT

a rogue faction of ancients, who believed that they should be able to advance lesser races, if only to stop their suffering from primitive societal and medical practices. (don't even get me started on the Krogan argument from Mass Effect). When the Atlantean council refused to hear their arguments, this group decided to make them listen. With biological warfare. the main Ancient Character Amata, planted a variation of the Ancient virus in Atlantis, intending to have it set off once the city reached Pegasus. The Ancients with die from the physical virus, which wasn't meant to harm humans, and the city would die from the computer virus that would sabatoge the city's control systems. All well and good, except the virus WASN'T released. Not until the Atlantis expedition came along, anyway. Fortunately, Amata was still around, in a stasis container, and helped solve the problems she had made for the humans in Atlantis (who were getting killed by the virus). Decent idea. Plausible, maybe. Except that Sabine Bauer has NO idea of the timeloine for which she is writing. Let me lay out her mistakes for you:

1.This "book" takes place shortly after Moebious part 2. Jack is still in command of the SGC, but is about to get promoted to Homeworld Sec. And he says they still have a few Ba'al clones to round up (which we didn't find out about until season 9, Deus Ex Machina).

4.0 out of 5 stars Transitions: A book written by a FAN - Yeah! October 23, 2011
By Amazing
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't wait to get this book considering the high quality of the previous Stargate books by this author. Once again she gives us a wonderful romp through the Stargate universe - and the Pegasus one as an added bonus. This story had action on nearly every page and although I tried to put it down it was so exciting that I just couldn't.
Why not five stars? A few reasons really but mainly because this book was so jammed full of plot work that some things were brushed over a little too much and some of the main characters only got a few token moments. It may have worked better as two books esp considering that it covered both SG-1 and Atlantis and all the main characters in both. Also the main protagonist is a murderous fanatic one moment and remorseful saviour the next without any real reason given as to her change of heart.
I may have mentioned this before but when a true and talented fan of Stargate writes a story you seem to get a whole lot more for your money than when an established author with no real interest in the series writes one with only their wallets in mind. Just my opinion but I've noted that the reviews seem to be supporting this.
This story was so entertaining that it had me yanking out my DVD collection so that I could get another taste of that series that I'm beginning to miss so very much.
Hope Fandemonium start pumping out more Stargate books a little faster and a lot LOT more on schedule than they have been.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome crossover. March 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are some minor spoilers in this review.

I am not really a big SG-1 fan but a HUGE fan of Atlantis so I got this book.
I don't know a whole lot about SG-1. That said here we go.
This book is really well written and it seemed to me that all the characters were well represented. It reads somewhat like a mystery novel in the beginning because they are trying to find Cassie but once they do you got pure sci-fi from then on.
Like both the series this book is packed with action. If you find yourself reading it and not liking what you see, Trust me when I tell you, JUST GO WITH IT.
The ending SO much fun.
I think this is a great book for fans of both series as well as just plain sci-fi.
I also suggest you watch the SG-1 episode "1969". It will help explain a lot.
