: In Russia stargate opens YOU!
My god this was a good episode. It had everything. Intrigue. Maybourne mysteriously doing shit in the Soviet Union. A whole new development that pleases me greatly, prying the stargate from the USA's grasp. And as the supporting storyline a bit of classic sci fi. Even Troi's nuclear wessels couldn't put me off in the end.
Hey, is there Troi/Carter fic out there from this ep? Because when the sub glass cracked and death was seemingly imminent it was Troi that Carter huddled near, not Daniel. Just sayin'.
Really this is just a fabulous show, it has everything. Bucket loads of humor, character development, regular shifts of tone.. it is peppier than Star Trek. Much, much peppier.
