Patricia wasn’t a geek the same way she wasn’t infantry, caught up in nuisances that didn’t matter here. In Atlantis everyone fought, and everyone geeked, and no one was just one or the other in that first frantic year.
So she went from a combat engineer with a talent for making things run on duct tape and curses, to the head of a Gate Team that kicked its own share of butt on the long list of planets that weren’t important enough to risk other teams on.
They’d never be GT1, but they did just fine… except for the sheep.
