Probably dead and stashed in Simeon's quarters.

Re: SG-U – The Greater Good - (2x07) - (Discuss – Grade | SPOILERS)

About why Destiny is also laying down gates. The Ancients have always had an interest in exploring other worlds and making contact with aliens. It's no surprise they'd want to fill the universe with Stargates along their journey on this mission. It would make exploring worlds easier, and also make reaching the far distances of the universe easier. I don't really see a problem with it, it just makes sense to me that the Ancients would seed the universe with Gates, in addition to Destiny fulfilling its mission.

This episode, is right up there with time for me.
It's a shame its going to get canned just as I begin to like it.
It's Enterprise all over again.
Just one thing? Should Young be able just to snap Rush's neck, with out breaking into a sweat. Instead of rolling about all over the floor with him.

Young is almost constantly drunk. I doubt he's kept himself in physical shape, despite the training regimens he ordered Scott to set up for the crew in season one.

Aside from being a really cool sequence that showed off how math-savy Eli was, and how neat it looked to jump out of a spinning red and white (Canadian) spaceship, wouldn't it have been easy enough just to send another kino or two out to get them?

9 Chevrons for me... Best episode of the season. One of the top three so far.

+ Finally the end to the 'secret'
+ Cool space stuff :-)
+ The mention of gravity working (just as I was shouting at the TV "how come the gravity is still on!")

I sure hope that the preview for next episode is very misleading.

The episode gave SGU a slight boost in viewership, with an estimated 1.074 million viewers
SGU‘s ratings were a 0.7 HH and 0.4 HH in the demo this week.

Too many people have been burned by SGU at this point for things to improve without a massive revamp. And based on the ending, I wouldn't be surprised by either a drop due to people being pissed by Ginn/Perry's deaths or a rise due to the action look of the preview.

You thought the ratings would be higher in the middle of Basket ball season and as shows are wrapping up for the midseaon cool down?

I'm not saying you won't see better numbers later just as the show goes into hiatus...there is an anticipation factor even for SGU...but you've got to step out of the fanaticism. People are leaving because the show is forgettable or unwatchable.

Your persistence is to be admired but others would rather be pleased by the shows they watch rather than the other way around.

Depends on whether it's ever been washed since he got to Destiny.

So a dip under 1m for next week then What will it take for the show to be renewed? If its 1.5m then it has no chance of getting that.

Re: SG-U – The Greater Good - (2x07) - (Discuss – Grade | SPOILERS)

Got around to watching this last night. Now that was fucking awesome. And they finally managed to play conflict between Rush and Young and have it make sense. The way Simeon casually walked into Ginn/Perry's room and shut the door was chilling.

I'm also glad Perry didn't just nonchalantly go along with Rush's plan. She didn't like being put in that position and it showed, and you could see she felt bad about it. I don't know who that actress is but she managed to make a pretty good character out of a measly two appearances.

The scene where Eli reminded Perry she was in someone else's body was priceless.

One thing that occurred to me just now is that absolutely nothing came of that little episode with the abandoned ship, did it? Young and Rush spent the whole time trying to get back to Destiny and never found out anything of interest. Huh. I guess it doesn't really matter. Sometimes a dead ship is just a dead ship.

The revelation of Destiny's mission was intriguing and well-played. It also makes sense why Rush would keep it to himself. He seems concerned that, if Destiny finds the "source" or whatever it is, it opens up potentially limitless power--even the power of all creation. Naturally, he is the only person smart enough or responsible enough to use it properly. Young would mean well and just manage to fuck it up.

I have to admit I get some geeky validation out of the fact that we'll finally have a bridge and a crew running the ship rather than various control rooms. It only took a season-and-a-half to get there!
