Sir, we can't call it the Enterprise forum
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.
I agree that the Canadian woods one would be more appropriate for Stargate overall, though I'd probably word it differently. Perhaps...
"Transporting you to the forests of Canada for over ten years."
Or even "Transporting you to the Canadian woods for over ten years." Either way, a 'the' really needs to be in there.
I voted for the woods one but the Enterprise line is good as well.
Did someone edit the poll, because I could swear it was "Transporting you to the Canadian woods..."
I didn't put a "the" in there no. "the" implies a specific location. Whereas "Canadian woods" is general... can be any woods in Canada.
I did wonder if woods was a very British word and it should have been forests though.
In that case, I'd use forests instead of woods. "Transporting you to Canadian forests for over ten years." It flows better.
This is all moot anyway, since it looks like the Enterprise line is gonna win.
It's not, but I tend to think of woods being much smaller than forests.
Forests is used more in Britain. I would have thought Woods was American
^ Doesn't matter, coz we should go with the enterprise line...
^I think "woods" just sounds... quainter and... smaller? I think it's a connotation thing more than anything else.
"Unnatural Selection" was the SG-1 episode where Carter said to O'Neill, "Sir, we can't call it the Enterprise."
Then, "Inferno" was the Atlantis episode where they find an Ancient warship called the Hippaforalkus. Col. Sheppard hates the name. Dr. McKay quickly tries to suggest another one before Col. Sheppard cuts him off, "And we're not calling it the Enterprise." That's when Col. Sheppard unilaterally names it the Orion during his next communique with the Deadalus.
You're probably right. However, I think there is some rule that if there's a particularly sucky Star Trek episode, the Stargate episode with the same name will be totally awesome! (SEE "Threshold" & "Meridian" for examples.)
When does this thing close?
So they can't honour Star Trek, but they can honour Raumpatrouille!
After we ring up Florida to rig the vote in our favour
To quote Dr. Temperance Brennan, "I don't know what that means."
It was a german sci-fi show, contemporaneous with the original Star Trek, which featured the spaceship Orion.
"Sir, we can't call it the Enterprise forum." is by far the best.
Separate names with a comma.
