Welcome to coyote_sga, a community for an alternate universe that plays with the characters of Stargate: Atlantis. The setting: in a post-radioactive spill era, California has transformed into a cesspool of people who have developed mutant aberrations. Some can fly. Others have telepathy. Some can control the very fabric of time and space. The well familiar characters of SGA have been recast into this mutant AU. Details on character profiles are further down below.

The first story, Genesis, is purposely left "Gen" as to allow the readers to choose their own preferences, and any ships in the story that develop later will largely be created by those who choose to write for this community.
In the aftermath of a massive toxic spill in the summer of '96 at the Seabrook Nuclear Power Plant, California's atmosphere was polluted with a radioactive substance that altered the genetics of many ordinary citizens. The end result: millions of people developed abnormal abilities due to these mutations. Prone to having an antagonistic relationship with many of its mutant citizens, the United States government has its hands full with keeping track of their activities. Special Agent Elizabeth Weir (a mutant herself) and her partner of four years, Cameron Mitchell, head the Mutant Division (MD) in Washington D.C. Their work largely entails chasing down the more criminal elements of the mutant population.
The Genii Organization, a mutant terrorist faction, has been growing powerful over the last few years. Rumor has it that they're planning on launching a large scale national threat within the next six months. To infiltrate this organization and learn its plans, the US government has tasked Elizabeth Weir with assembling a group of mutants to go undercover and retrieve the information that could save millions of lives.
