Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

In season 10 the only ships Earth had were the Daedalus, Apollo, and Odyssey if memory serves. It's a pretty weak effort if anything given that the entire galaxy is at stake.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Honestly, the "Earth had a whole fleet of ships" thing really is an exaggeration. In all Stargate Earth had built 7 ships.

1) Prometheus
2) Daedalus
3) Odyssey
4) Korolev
5) Apollo
6) Sun Tzu
7) George Hammond

Two of those were destroyed and another was never actually seen on screen, just mentioned. And considering these ships had duties which spanned two galaxies, Earth really doesn't have much of a starfleet at all.

Uninvited: I was impressed with how the creatures looked like their insides were on their outsides. Nicely grotesque. A bit X-Filey.

I wouldn't want to be stuck in a cabin "relaxing" with either Landry or Mitchell. Now Vala.. that would be far more entertaining. Actual conversation which wasn't blahblah war stories.




Teal'c: A true warrior knows.. when to fold 'em.

I chuckled.

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.

It was one of those plot devices that only bleeped briefly on my radar.

Charging inside out pig bulls had my attention.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Also, despite season 7 making it clear that the President of the US is a fictional character in Stargate, Uninvited implies Dick Cheney was Vice President at the time with a joke about his infamous hunting accident.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

I was thinking of starting a poll as to people's opinion of Vala in pony tails.

What do you all think? I am not a fan. It irritates me, seems to play in with the Vala is just a bit too silly to be with all these grown up air force folk theme. And it just doesn't suit her.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

I would also vote no on the pigtails, but perhaps Goa'uld fashions are just out of sync with our own. Frankly, I'd expect an extremely high-maintenance (ancient royal) or very quirky hairstyle from someone who'd been host to a high-profile Goa'uld.

Didn't like Vala at all, that said I see Seasons 9 & 10 as a seperate series

We went from one ship, to a small fleet in a couple of years, and in season 9 and 10 the ships are rather large (The Prometheus was small) and just kept cranking out more and more as the story needed, and how could they build these without the public knowing?

Pigtails may have childish connotations on Earth, but Vala isn't from Earth.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

200: So we open with "previously on.." scenes from quite far back in Stargate. I'm sitting there, eating my papaya, letting it all wash over me and suddenly I'm like..

WHAT!

wtf is THIS? I haven't seen THIS!? which also btw looks TERRIBLE..



I have to photobomb this one because it was full of priceless, precious moments. I laughed my ass off through it!!



OMG!!!! (recurring exclamation)





BWAHAHA lighting in this and the above one is PERFECT!!!





YO! Teal'c my man!




Dying here..





WAH how they TEASE US!!


And then there's the long awaited..



Blinky Bill cameo.


I haven't laughed that hard at tv in a long time. I'm already looking forward to rewatching it. As Vala would say, it was PACKED with JAM!

An absolute treasure of affectionate hilarity.
