    I actually think Jack made a good call in Engame. Saving the Stargate was paramount, so he had to maximize that possibility. It was wroth even letting the Trust do their thing.
    But the question remains… does Jack have what it takes to be a commander or does he best make a field operative?


    “I was a bit thrown by O’Neill’s inability to make a decision he was sure was the right one, but by the end of the episode I got where this was going. O’Neill is still not comfortable with calling the shots, and I think it’s really because there was no time to bring Hammond up to speed and even turning to that would mean that O’Neill isn’t cut out for it. Worse yet, he’s not cut out for it just yet, and knows that virtually anyone else coming in would have ordered the Prometheus to destroy the Al’kesh when they had the moment, killing SG-1, and obliterating the Stargate. Or worse, let the Trust do what they wanted to do. So far there have been only rare chances to see Jack really in charge, and he doesn’t have the presence that Hammond had in this role. He was right, he can’t be The Man, not as he is. That in itself will hopefully lead to some great O’Neill episodes. Cut the guy a break though and put him through the Gate again. Just for a while. I think he’s getting cabin fever stuck on Earth all the time”

    Daniel: “Wait wait. Coffee? You got coffee?!”
    Techs: “…”
    Daniel: “Kidding. Just kidding. Sorry guys.”

    O’Neill: “Usually they ask nicely before they ignore us and do whatever they damn well please.”

    Rank was 21 out of 181 episodes? Not sure what that means or how it was determined.
    I would rate it about average for stargate.

    Mostly american voters because not aired in other countries at time of poll.

    This episode is not very popular amongst Stargate SG-1 fans. It is currently ranked within the worst ten episodes broadcast.
    Average: 8.96 ± 1.24

    Season 8 just started in the early spring in Canada on Space Channel.
    Episode #164 out of 174 Stargate episodes.

    Last seen episode was “Endgame”, the disappearance of the stargate with the Trust and the NID to blame. It was decent with new and good ideas but it didn’t seem to be gripping and the situation just suddenly turned around. The trust still has the alien ship and some symbiote nerve gas.

    Death by nerve gas is more eerie than gripping. Everybody just keels over, scores of bodies just fallen over where they were standing.
    Tragic moment as Teal’c’s friend M’zel died. Pity about Zarin also.

    The next one “Gemini” looks pretty exciting. Two Carters are better than one! 🙂
    And seems some real excitment and tension..

    It said I was….

    Gregory Benford
    A master literary stylist who is also a working scientist.

    (The real Greg Benford once took this quiz, and it told him he was Arthur C. Clarke.)

    I never heard of Gregory Benford and after a lookup , looks like I never read his stories.

    I don’t like Arthur C. Clarke…..borrrrrrrrrrrring).

    I am Kokopelli. I don’t need to be anyone else!!!

    So there!!!

    in reply to: My angst is with some Sci-Fi fans #74594

    SciFi used to be a box in the back room of the used book store.

    Then along came Star Trek…

    If it’s popular with the masses then it’s thiry years behind the times.

    It sure was gratifying to see they made movies out of things like “Damnation Alley” or ” A Boy and his Dog”. or “Do androids Dream of Electric Sheep” (Blade Runner).

    It’s like….gee they found it!!! I couldn’t believe it!!!
    Someone else went to the back room in the used book store!!!

    in reply to: Geek Depression #74593

    If anyone answered all those questions then they must be a geek.

    The list was waaaayyy to long for a non-geek like me to answer.

    I DO admit to taking apart every electronic and electrical piece of equipment I own. But they needed looking at.
    That does NOT make me a geek.

    I do admit to falling asleep in uni with my programming books open and waking up 3 hours later to toss off my running shoes (because they hurt) and then falling back asleep still in my clothes.

    I do admit to prefer working overtime on juicy projects than go out on dates.

    I do admit to helping more than half my class pass their exams.
    I admit to always carrying a Sharp-506P in my pocket.

    I admit to many things but a geek I am not.
    I will not go to Geeks Anonymous.
    I refuse to discuss it anymore.

    ohhh trance…that’s really scary.
    You actually completed the test??!!!
    Get help!!!

    in reply to: Which Fantasy/Sci Fi Character Are You? #74592

    I am John Kane in “Brother John” played by Sidney Poiter.
    He was the Eyes of God reporting back to the Boss awaiting His Final Judgement.
    He only travelled and saw.
    He carried notebooks but never wrote in them. All he saw and experienced was transmitted back to Him.

    Tremble yee Sinners and Repent. Your time is nigh!!!

    But yet my name is a different story. 🙂
    I took the test on the posted link and came back as Captain
    Jean-Luc Picard.

    Yeah, that ‘s me alright. Except I got all my hair.


    Jean-Luc Picard
    “An accomplished diplomat who can virtually do no wrong, you sometimes know it is best to rely on the council of others while holding the reins.

    There are some words which I have known since I was a schoolboy. “With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censored, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably.” These words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie — as a wisdom, and warning. The first time any man’s freedom is trodden on, we’re all damaged.”

    Some reviews of Fatguy’s “Omega Man’s Log” story:


    “i think it’s a fine story, i just wish he would’ve gone into more detail about the actual pooping.”

    I agree. Simply “defecating and urinating” lacks descibtion.

    At least have some adjectives like “urinating voluminously”” or “propellantly defecting”.
    Or maybe get into poetic description like ” pooping with stain as dark as murder”.
    And what about the odor like “reeeking with the stench of two days of eating the worst pizza in New York”..
    Like .. put some punch in it.

    “Asimov received HIV-infected blood during heart bypass surgery in 1983. His death in 1992 was from AIDS-related complications, although his widow kept this secret for over a decade after his death.”

    I just found out!! If not for the internet, i wouldn’t have known.

    What a crying shame!

    Crying! Crying! Crying!

    in reply to: Will Smith: The Acceptable Face of Asimov? #74589

    Forgive them, asimov, for they know not what they do.

    I’m certain Asimov is up in Heaven looking down at Will Smith in great shock and saying “Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent”.

    If anyone actually READ Issac’s memoir they would know he detested the Frankenstein Robot idea and didn’t write action stories.
