You guys & gals seem to be shy! OK, I'll start (even though I can't win)...

From Stargate Atlantis one of my favorite episodes is The Last Man from the end of Season 4 where Sheppard come back through the gate at Atlantis only to find the entire city is empty and instead of being surrounded by ocean there is nothing but sand. Working with a hologram image of McKay, Sheppard realizes that he has been sent far into the future with no way of reaching Earth.

I liked this particular moment because it was a great character story for Sheppard showing him in nearly total isolation with his future entirely dependent upon a hologram from the past with a theory that may or may not work. Typically Sheppard's character works best when played against a group of others but not in this case. The story ended up happy enough, with Sheppard getting back to his own time thanks to McKay and the hologram providing some key information regarding Teyla, but it is that imagery of Sheppard alone in a city surrounded by sand that I remember.
I am not shy I was just Drawn that way (okay so its a bad movie reference).

I have to say my favorite moment from an episode has to be from the first season episode 3 which is right after they first come thru the gate and see Atlantis for the first time and just figuring out what all the buttons do. It's like a kid in a toy store not knowing what to go play with first so they just start grabing everything. Just like rodney did grabbing the personal shield emitter and trying it before realizing he didn't know how to turn it off. :D

PS. I want a Personnel Shield Emitter.
I don't have one specific favorite moment but rather a class of moments, all practically identical to each other, where Ronon brought the inane tedium of the minutia, that Stargate Atlantis sometimes got down deep into, back to the reality of what mattered and what was critically important, like this scene:

Dr. Rodney McKay: They emit a directional beacon that disrupts the replicators and breaks them apart.
Ronon Dex: Not what I asked.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Yes, they work good.
Ronon's line here -- the way he delivered it -- was great IMHO.

In a way, I think Ronon was the ultimate viewer advocate, keeping things real, not getting lost in the forest, principled (in his own way -- another plus), and heroic, without being preachy. I think these were things that Shepherd was supposed to be, but Flanigan could never quite pull it off, like Richard Dean Anderson (and later Ben Browder) could in Stargate SG-1, and so Stargate Atlantis needed Ronon.
