The characters Carson Beckett and Rodney McKay appeared onscreen together early on Stargate Atlantis in the first episode: The Rising. Fans took notice of their friendly (or as friendly as it gets when Rodney McKay is involved) relationship and a slash pairing was born.

The Beckett McKay community on Livejournal was the first m/m pairing community to form, opening just one week after The Rising aired in the US.

This pairing was the second most popular M/M ship in the early days of the fandom. The popularity of the pairing waned a little, particularly in the period when Carson Beckett was dead.

While it did not remain popular in later years, fans never completely abandoned the ship.

The threesome Carson Beckett/Rodney McKay/John Sheppard involving the pair, and John Sheppard, is also somewhat popular.
