After seeing that it annoys so much, I wish I voted for the ENT line looks like it will win anyway.

Re: New forum description

The "Enterprise" thing has almost become a running gag in the franchise. Col. Sheppard said almost the exact same thing to Dr. McKay when they discovered the Orion back in the 2nd season of Atlantis.

A couple other lines from the series that I'm now thinking would also be nice descriptions (or at least they're some of my favorite lines):

"We can name it later."

"At least my heroes really exist."

"Sure. Why not?

A running gag? It was one line, in one episode of SG-1. A line that a good chunk of Stargate fans probably don't even remember. It was funny at the time, for a few seconds, the first time we heard it. Not 8 or 9 years later as a forum description.

So which episode was the "Enterprise" line in? I'm curious... I remember something similar, but not when it occurred.

Besides, do we really want to invoke comparisons to the other "Enterprise" forum on this site? Might be good to verify that SGU is actually *better* than another show before inviting comparisons.

Not a big poster here in the SG forum, but I voted for the "not the Enterprise" option because it seems to ruffle the most feathers.

There's also "Redemption" where O'Neill asks if the X-302 has phasers.

I wonder if it's intentional that both episodes have the same names as TNG episodes.

The SG-1 episode titles were pretty generic for the sci-fi genre. They had so much overlap that I doubt that these two were specially selected for duplication.

I voted for the Canadian woods description. It's funny, it's obvious to the fans, it was referenced at least once within the show, and it brings no thoughts of other shows or trademark issues.

I voted for the Canadian woods, because I voted for the Enterprise last time we tried this.
