Fanfic beta (?) needed: SGA canon-departure AU

It's done it's done it's doooooooooone. 26,500 words over three months, most of them difficult.

Anyway. I'm looking for early-reader feedback on an SGA story. It's about 26.5k words; it's ultimately Rodney-centric (obviously — I mean, we've met, right?) and departs from canon somewhere between 3x14 and 3x17. (Or you could say it departs from canon thousands of years ago, but our characters still go through canon until this point.) I'm not looking for someone to do just spelling/punctuation/grammar review (SPaG). I had trouble with this story, and I suspect it's missing something, so I'm looking for one or two folks who can tell me if the story works at all; and if it works, what (if anything) is missing or needs better development.

Warnings: References to genocide; brief descriptions of OC tortures and deaths (including children); body horror; captivity and minor torture; ableist language and slurs in POV; mental programming without permission
Summary: The expedition finds surprising signs of a long-missing race, but a greater surprise lies in store. I feel like the warnings as listed are more alarming than the fic itself is, but I so can't judge at this point.

Anyway. Anyone interested?
