Summary: To mark the 10th anniversary of the declassification of the Stargate program, we bring you extracts from Ed Lawrence's 2014 New York Times bestseller Semper Fi with a Zat: Chasing Wraith and Killing Time with the Marines of Atlantis, originally posted on HuffPo in 2012-3 as 'Despatches from Pegasus', when Lawrence was embedded with the Atlantis expedition.
