DADT, Damyata, Damyadvam is a Stargate Atlantis story by Trinityofone.
Summary: He was aware of the controversy surrounding the application of DADT policy to an international expedition—and an international expedition to another galaxy at that—but in the end, it didn't matter. Everyone got the chip, or they didn't go.
The author is known for many things, particularly her skillful use of science fiction tropes. This story imagines a future in which the U.S. military's Don't Ask Don't Tell policy is aided by technology: the implantation of a chip that gives the bearer a severe "DADT shock" if they do or say anything queer. All the Atlantis expedition has been implanted, and the story shows how the characters cope with, and eventually fight and overthrow, this fascistic and homophobic technology.
DADT, Damyata, Damyadvam was written for Artword challenge 004A.
Reactions and Reviews
A fascinating political AU set in a universe where the military finds a new way to enforce Don't Ask, Don't Tell. By turns chilling, insightful, and ultimately moving, this is one of my favorite Trin fics.
