Re: Was Code of Honor racist?
It's kind of ironic that the third episode of Stargate was exactly the same way. Tribal Mongolians kidnap Carter. Only they end up trading for her. And then at the end Carter has to end up fighting the tribal leader, proving she is a strong, blonde, short haired, badass female.
Both the third episode of their series. Both in the running for worst in series. Both with very similar plots.
The similar story elements are not so surprising -- Katharyn Powers co-wrote "Code of Honor" and wrote "Emancipation."
They are both abysmal episodes often considered the nadir of each respective series, too. Not a great line on her resume.
