Allies of the Atlantis Crew, they are also allied with the Genii. When the trade agreement for food with the Genii went wrong the two became enemies, but the Atlantis crew managed to become allies with the Manarians. When the storm was set to pass over the Atlantis base, the Atlantis expedition and Athosians went to the Manarians to request temporary shelter, however they refused, but the Atlantis crew forced them by threatening them. Reluctantly they agreed, but they also informed the Genii of the situation which led to a Genii incursion on Atlantis. During the time, the Manarians kept their end of the bargain and kept the rest of the Athosians and Atlantis crew safe.
