^Why would Earth want Goa'uld ships with or without Hebridan technology ? They have access to Asgard and Ancient technology which is considerably more advanced.

Re: you're in charge of Stargate: what do you do?

^^yeah but it takes time to manufacture ships, even when the secret's out, and there are a ton of abandoned goauld ships floating around that match well against the furling ships, the show will be a bit space:above and beyond as it will cover a war with a mysterious enemy

^I'm just not sure why we'd go around begging for inferior technology when we can build ships that are a match for the Replicators, the Ori, the Wraith etc.

You're given full, dictatorial powers over Stargate. You still have to turn in a profit, but other than that, it's your baby. What do you do?
I bash the writer constantly, however I can't write either so first thing is first I would see who I could put in command of the show Atlantis. I would have someone famous, if I can get them of course, who has a basic idea of how to fix and end the show within two years and then set up for the movies.

I then would hire a team of three people to put together a completely new idea for a new show. I pick three people in case some quit.

And I would have a miniseries or a trilogy of movies dealing with the Stargate becoming public, it's long overdo.

Have them find a factory place that makes ZPMs and fight for control over it.

Possibly a new race that protects it.

Well, outside of the fact that it would continue her notorious reputation of being a mattress, wouldn't that be completely opposite of what's already been established about her character? Maybe she and Hoshi were roommates.

once again, the war needs resources, and ship manufactureing is slow and there will be need for numerous ships quickly, and the goauld ships are capable of holding thier own (barely) against the mystery/furling ships

Exactly. What's been established for Keller so far is completely uninteresting to watch unfold. She's so flavorless. I'd give her sex as a vice. Like Starbuck without the alcoholism and dysfunction. She's the only sci-fi example of a female Kirk I can think of (Jadzia Dax's Kirking happened offscreen) and I find the 'Gates writing of women characters to be so off and pedestrian. As the new showrunner, I'd make sure Keller is written as an adult.

If I was running the show I'd firebomb Sci-Fi's HQ.

No, I am not taking this well. What gave me away ?

Bing bing bing, we have a winner.

Toss Joe Flanigan, Connor Trinneer and Robert Picardo in as recurring characters.

Heck maybe you could do even do the story about the Stargate program being revealed to the public in this future setting thus allowing to to stay secret i nthe present.
I'd have it be revealed to the public in the present. I'm tired of all the threats to Earth going undetected or being explained away. Every time a fleet of Gou'auld ships surrounded Earth, fifty thousand amateur star-gazers should've gotten video. Makes no sense to me that it's still secret after all these years.
