It wasn’t real.

Simulations, even ones this good, are obvious once you knew where to look and Rodney’s been through more than he’s comfortable admitting, even to himself. All of this, the ambush, the interrogations, the torture– everything since they landed was just ones and zeros. Electronic ghosts that played on his nightmares.

He watched his friends suffering, dying, knowing that in the real world he would have lost them. It’s almost too much, it always is, but they weren’t real… and that’s why he can save them.

Rodney finally gets his fingers into code and rips the world apart.
