"Are you an Ancient?" Joan asked the Marine that was not on any record as being part of the Atlantis expedition.
"No, Joan. I am Alpha and Omega. And the Ancients do not believe in interfering."
And God certainly knew that He did interfere, at least in Joan's life. The complicated path that had led Joan from Arcadia to Atlantis could have only been prepared by God. "What do you want me to do?" she asked.
"Volunteer for an off-world mission."
She was supposed to be strictly support, with occasional contracts and lawyer duties for the personnel. "Why?"
God laughed at her and walked away. "Have fun."
"But…" she was left sputtering again.
Her earwig beeped. "Girardi to Girardi."
"What do you need, Luke?"
"You got to get Sheppard and McKay out of my lab," he hissed quietly. "They're wrecking my experiment."
Joan rolled her eyes. "I'll be right there." Now would be as good a time as any to talk to Sheppard about an off-world mission. She wondered what God had planned now and in the near future. It would be a harder task this time. She had gotten too used to all changes God had thrown at her.
