Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine star Colm Meaney (Miles O'Brien) will guest star on Stargate Atlantis, joining fellow DS9 alumni Armin Shimerman and Rene Auberjonois in the franchise.
GateWorld reported that Meaney would appear in a three-episode arc on the Stargate SG-1 spin-off, based on a statement in the GateWorld Forum by SG-1 co-executive producer Joseph Mallozzi.
Although the name of Meaney's character was not revealed, it is known that the mid-season episodes "Underground", "The Storm" and "The Eye" constitute a single story arc in which the Atlantis team attempts to form an alliance with the Genii, who are reluctant to become allies in opposing the Wraith.
Meaney played O'Brien as a recurring character on TNG before joining the regular cast of DS9. In addition to Auberjonois and Shimerman, John Billingsley and Marina Sirtis have appeared on Stargate, as well as Jolene Blalock and Robert Picardo, both of whom play recurring characters.
