On a routine trading mission Rodney picks up a bit of ancient tech with a purpose none of them can quite figure out, until he manages to activate it.

The traders begin to show up about mid-morning and stay there all day. The only one of them who has any luck is Rodney, who finds a small ancient device that not even John can quite figure out. They purchase it for a small amount of goods in trade, since it seems fairly useless. Teyla says her goodbyes to the people in the village and they board the Jumper.

On the way back Rodney fiddles with the Ancient device, John glancing at him every so often. “Are you sure you should be doing that here?” John asks, nervously. It’s not that he doesn’t trust Rodney, he just doesn’t trust unknown Ancient tech. That thing could do anything.

Of course, though, Rodney takes offense, as if John doubted Rodney. Which he guesses he kinda did. “It’s perfectly safe, Sheppard. Now if you would pay attention to where we’re flying I would appreciate it.”

“If you say so, Rodney,” John says. He looks back at the Jumper readouts and very determinedly does not look at Rodney again.

That is, until he hears Ronon’s sharp question. “McKay, what’s wrong?”

John turns to see Rodney looking absolutely exhausted. As if he’s been going days on coffee and adrenaline to sustain him. “Rodney?!”

“Groundhog’s Day,” Rodney says, a complete non-sequitur, and John frowns.
