Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

Ba'al has the advantage of knowing exactly what didnt work against him, and what would.

Who knows how many times Ba'al went back in time and did things differently when things didnt go his way?

After all, from the first time he changed history, things would stop happening how he remembered it, but as long as he could still get away from any battle that went wrong, or more likely not be in the battle in the first place, he can always come back with a different tactic until he gets it right.

He was the guy you don't recognize when all the System Lords are lined up in front of Baal.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

I see. Is this mentioned in the credits or something? I just figured it was some random System Lord.

I missed part of the scene before but watching it again on DVD Quetesh remarks about being impressed that even Ra bowed to him, and there's an Egyptian looking man on the left of the line. And right enough in the credits is "Ra".

Also, he's wearing the same mumu he had in "Moebius," modeled after the one he wore for his public appearance at the execution in the movie.

I have to admit that in Moebius I was more focused on his GIANT HEAD.

That mask had to be hard to maneuver in.

You could tell he was stumbling around and depending on his two lovely assistants to keep him from walking into the wall. Something similar happened at the end of "Children of the Gods," when Apophis trips on the curtains of his sedan chair while getting out. So undignified.

^A fanboy's love for Carter is a quiet love. It's not noisy love like those fangirls and Flanigan.

By the time ba'al killed Grandpa Mitchell, Papa Mitchell was most likely already around.

The grandfather paradox kind of loses its teeth if you arrive too late to prevent the conception.

Except that they're getting old. Jolinar died of old age, remember.
Jolinar was killed by an assassin.
You're right. I meant Selmak, the snake inside Jacob Carter. My bad.
Wellll, not exactly. Selmak died from Jacob's old age / disease. Selmak had deliberately stayed in Jacob far past the point of diminishing returns when it comes to restoring the host's body to good health, because he had important work that needed doing which prevented him from investing his efforts finding a new host. Selmak and Jacob both knew that Selmak needed a new host cuz Jacob was dying, but they agreed to ignore this fact in favour of finishing their work... effectively sacrificing Selmak in the process. When it finally came to light, it was too late, as Selmak no longer had enough strength to change hosts.

Look at the Go'a'uld infested Unas they found .. uhh .. that one time. That's about the oldest Go'a'uld we've ever known to exist as an audience, I think they basically "live forever" for dramatic purposes, provided they have access to a pool of viable hosts for when / if their current host body can no longer support them.
