Well, it did two other little things, that while they don't directly advance the plot, I hope will come up again in the future.dcheesi said:Obviously it didn't advance the plot any, other than to lose one jumper out of an unknown(?) number.
While refitting the rescue jumper they mentioned that they were doing work to adapt the jumper bay to X-302 storage. So I guess Atlantis is getting additional integrated defences.
Also, they now have the ability to flip between cloak and shield on the jumpers, which could be a really useful ability at some point in the future.
So they have new toys in the tool box, even if it wasn't an advance on the plot.
