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

Well, the fact that they've used footage from the Kinosodes in the show proper (like Riley's funeral) is a pretty good indication that the people making the show count them. As is the fact that they're made by the people doing the show, written by the writers, acted by the actors, shot on the sets...

Stargate's canon isn't even a fraction as strict as Star Trek. All produced content, whether it be on television, in theaters, on DVD, or online is canon. A large portion of the books and games are too.
Obviously, the episodes and movies are canon. The Kino webisodes are likely canon as well, for reasons stated above. But I don't think any of the books or games are canon in anyway.

First, the novels which were written as direct sequels of the original movie obviously have to be disregarded as non-canon. I've never heard any indication Fandemonium's SG-1 and Atlantis novels are meant to be canon, and since most of the Stargate games that were in devlopment have been cancelled anyway, there's nothing to discuss. Though I suppose you might have a point regarding the X-Box SG-1 game that was in development several years ago, since footage from that was used in the episode Avatar.

By definition, every point in the universe could be described as "the initial point of the big bang". There's no need to go anywhere to get there.

How does that work for the physics of "constantly expanding"? There must be a central point of expansion FROM.

The universe is expanding in all directions. There is no "center" from which we are expanding. It's why you find the background radiation left over from the Big Bang everywhere.

I'm gonna make a weird prediction for tonight's episode that will probably end up being completely wrong.

Can't say exactly how it's gonna come about, but I think Ginn won't really be dead and somehow Ginn and Perry are going to wind up sharing the same mind, setting up a love triangle between Ginn/Perry, Rush and Eli.

Sounds better than the replicators coming back. LOL

Dammit, I was absent that day in astronomy.

Maybe a lot of little baby bangs (to steal a line from Buckaroo Banzai).

I've heard Perry might be back in the SGA crossover episode, but I'm not sure if that would be her just being in flashbacks or she's on Destiny again.

Put another way, in order to have a notion of a "center of the universe", you would need some coordinate system outside the universe. We don't have one.

At the time of the big bang, the entire universe was a single point. Not occupied a single point----was a single point. Now it's more than that, but every part of it is still a bit of space which used to be in that point.

There's an SGA crossover special??

Well, the beauty of that sex waiver thing is that it happened in one of those webisodes no one saw, so unless it's actually played in an episode, it never happened.
Doesn't matter if it wasn't in the show. Stargate's canon isn't even a fraction as strict as Star Trek. All produced content, whether it be on television, in theaters, on DVD, or online is canon. A large portion of the books and games are too.
Show me an official statement of that from MGM and I'll believe you.
Thats the thing, TPTB don't give a rats ass. They aren't all psycho about canon like Roddenberry was. In fact the only thing they said wasn't canon was Stargate Infinity.

Just saw this last night. Absolutely brilliant! Much as originally the notion of the bridge somewhat annoyed me (makes SGU potentially just another space opera) I have to admit it looked cool seeing it fully manned.

I really hope this show keeps breathing!
