    And thusly you've made this project worth it!
    That's almost exactly how I feel about its in-universe design.

    Exactly. It's a wonder in of itself. Not everything is about function but statement!

    I always wanted them to use the Quantum Mirror to catch a glimpse of a cameo by Kurt Russell as O'Neil.

    And ... as different as Anderson was from Russell's take, Shanks nailed Spader as Dr. Jackson for the first season or so. After that, Jackson very realistically became increasingly competent in combat over later seasons. Sure he was still an archeology geek, but he was also undergoing steady field training with a military team for years and beefed up believably. I didn't even bat an eye when he wound up directing field agents in Universe.

    What an outstanding franchise!

    Finally finished my current uni units, so I'm back.
    And in that return I've noticed something... The rotational centre of many of the spokes is not the centre of the snow globe.
    Rather it appears that their centre of rotation is a point on another central sphere.
    And just like that my brain is ever so slightly broken...

    Also, yeah. Stargate is amazing! I loved how the story of the Ancients unfolded and shaped the galaxy even 100,000 years after they'd left. Probably a big part of the reason I love ancient lore stuff like the Forerunners in Halo. Which of course made me love megastructures like Yorktown.

    This should be Picard era stuff. It does look like something the Ancients built.
    The Ori ships should have been the Ancient craft--and the NuBSG Cylon ressurection ship should have been the Ori vessels.
