Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

What I didn't get was what was the deal with Carter being in command of the SGC while Landry was gone? First of all, since Carter is part of an SG team, she shouldn't really be part of the SGC's chain of command, there should be a whole admin staff of officers who never go off-world and whoever is the next ranking after Landry should be the one left in command. But even if we assume Landry gave all of them the day off and left only SG team personnel, than command should have gone to one of the officers that outranks Carter, like Colonel Reynolds for example.

This bothered me and is an example of the whole "main characters overrule everyone else, regardless of rank" thing that is so common in Star Trek.
