haven't seen the ep myself but i gotta agree that it was better qwhen they regurly went through the gate.
i don't mind the space stuff as i love star trek aswell but the originality of stargate is class and to spoil it with star trek just makes it a copy
of it










and if you believe that well

More eps were based on earth than hugely on ships though. especially s6. they have been speding a lot of episodes this season on earth. if you think about, jonas first excursion through the gate (barring his to/from his own planet) wasn't until the other guys.

Yeah, but he wasn't on the team at first. Anyway, the series is evolving, I personally prefer it now, where they've got different approaches, it's not always the same format to an episode. Cos then it's like ST - every single ep, you know they're gonna meet a culture, make a mistake etc... Whereas with SG it's.. different. And stuff. You know what I'm trying to say, and if you don't, ignore this post.

so that's a good thing!

yeah i agree with you Venus but sometimes it's nice to have an ep like the ones we started loving the show for once in a while.

Sorry Anubis I gotta disagree with you on at least one point, we would have to develop ships to defend earth from an as seen very real threat of ship based attacks I don't see humans going out attacking system lords anytime soon(in ships). Earth has lost most of it's allies so this increases the importance of pushing earth tech forward to a point were they have interstellar (?) travel. Human tech always surges forward in leaps and bounds in times of war this is historical fact, so it makes complete sense to have the ship(given they had help) now it by no means means that the gate would be used to a lesser extent it just increases the chances of meeting other advanced species that do not have a stargate plus as stated a defence (however feeble) for earth.
So I guess I'm not against ship based episodes but don't think I would like to see it every episode.



Oh I also think you will find Gene was'nt the first guy to do a space travel in ships series.

The ship eliminates the need for the more implausible story lines, I mean think about it, Daniel Jackson had to be thrown into an alternate universe just to facilitate an excuse for SG1 to gate to a ship yard into a ship that was just seconds away from leaving.....



now they could atleast sneak on after creeping up in a ship!

Not to be rude or anything, but alex 8472 u are an idiot, stargate wouldn't be around if it weren't for Roddenberry setting a preface for the Sci-Fi show, before it there was no concept of ship travel through space, and there is a reason all of the startrek shows have a common thread: Because they are all in the same bloddy timeline u twit! Who cares if there are more ships? So what, it just means less gates, which i think has just about been worked to death anywho, and the point of having more ships is to show that earth is advancing to a state where they can actually launch a viable assault on the goa'uld, whereas, at the moment the goa'uld could launch a massive assault on earth and there would be nothign anyone could do about it, and i think after a few years of working on this the writers know what they're doing...

Finally, yes i agree with pres doc, don't assume that just coz u read it on the internet that its actually gunna happen.


thanks alot

just cos rodenberry made the most famous one, doesn't mean he was the first and most influential to other producers who would be more searching for originality.

And anubis, if you think gate travel has been done to death, why do you continue to watch the show, considering that's it's major premise?
