When was the latter demonstrated? Other than turning that guy into mincemeat, and I dont think they could reverse that.

Lt. Scott was pretty much fucked, and the swarm flew over him and he opened his eyes and started breathing again. (39:40)

Also, in the desert he was kind of unconscious and the bugs sort of revived him.

Via Gateworld:
Unconscious, face down in the sand, Scott is unaware as the vortex whirls into the sand near his head. Water bubbles out of the desert floor, rousing him.


Although I suppose that's more to do with the whole Tiddalick thing.

Also, I just rewatched 'First Contact' and 'Lost Tribe' from Stargate Atlantis and something's bothering me;
Spoiler:
the space suits Young and Scott put on are VERY similar to the evil Asgard 'suits'


Coincidence?

Once again, via Gateworld:
The EVA suits from the Destiny that appear in this episode don't just look similar to the battle suits worn by the Asgard in Atlantis's "First Contact" and "The Lost Tribe." They're a reuse of the same costumes, for a very deliberate reason that remains to be revealed.

When asked about this, consulting producer Joseph Mallozzi commented: "Well, hey, now that you mention it -- yeah, they do look remarkably similar. In fact, if I was a betting man, I'd wager that the Dark Asgard suits are a modified version of the Ancient space suit. Wonder what's going on there."

Well remember back in the day the ancients hung with the Asgard, Nox, and Furlings, so it's reasonable to assume they exchanged technology and borrowed designs from each other. As old as the ship is it might be from that time.

Maybe we're finally going to meet the Furlings. They never encountered them in the Milky Way, maybe they left the galaxy with Ancient's ships?

Yeah the Furlings should stay as a mini series in-joke and never ever be seen. It's more fun that way.

Haven't seen "Earth" yet, will try and get around to watching it tonight tho. As a series I'm still loving it, I want my own Kino (they're very similar to something I wrote about in a short story a few years back so they make me smile).

Yea, the only character I consistently like so far is Eli, and that's only because he's the audience-stand-in that's apparently required in every show these days.

I was kinda thinking this as well. Frankly it would seem pretty stupid that Telford would just go back for some deceitful sex. How did he even know where the place was anyways if he hadn't been there before?


Once again they need to get rid of the damn communications stones. There's too much stupid earth stuff going on. I want a sci fi show about people surviving on a spaceship. The fact that they can go back home (at least their mind) whenever they want seems to make the whole being stranded bit seem far less severe (and dramatic) then it could be.

Also we're on the 4th page of this. Any chance we can stop using spoilers now?

Only if people can start clearly denoting when they're talking about a new episode so people who have screenings in their country later than in the US don't read on and getting spoilered without warning. For my money, at least.

Re: the Earth stuff; I actually think it's interesting that we get to see that there are other people working on and involved in the situation. It's not just "trapped on alien spaceship? Okay, whatevs." Which is what it would feel like if we were only focusing on Destiny.

It reminds me of a super-high-tech epic version of Apollo 13. Where you have a mission control crew back home who know where you are and what's happening, but can't actually help you in any concrete way. All they can do is talk to you on the radio and try to mock up solutions to your problems for you to implement.

He does seem a bit pompous and dull. Odd. It's as if the writers are going to such an effort to make Universe different from their previous shows that they felt the need to twist O'Neill to fit.

Yeah, I'm not terribly impressed with Young at the moment. Which bugs me slightly 'cause I liked him when it began, and now he's just irritating me.

Some mildly interesting/amusing shenanigans involving one of the show's producers having a hairy fit at a bad review. Heh.

The more I think about it, the more strongly I believe that Chloe needs to die and NOW. She drags every fucking episode down with her bullshit. She's just...incredibly unlikable. And unlikable is fine - Tigh's wife in BSG wasn't remotely likable, but I don't once remember thinking "Man, this show would be so much better if they just killed off Tigh's wife already!" She's just bland and uninteresting and getting way too much focus.

Yup. I want to shake her vigourously and send her to her room till she grows up.

Hey, what do folk here reckon on the timescale of the show? I can't make my mind up at all. The first couple of episodes definitely ran into each other in a matter of days, and I sort of assumed the writers were going for that feeling of urgency for the rest of the season. However...now I'm not so sure, it feels like maybe a bit more between episodes since the pilot.

I asked the same question on a Stargate forum, and didn't get terribly convincing answers... Has anyone else given it any thought?

Seriously. I found a bunch of the characters uninteresting in the beginning, but most of them got better with each episode. Chloe has somehow managed to get worse. I don't know how they did it. I don't think it's even really a likability issue; I like unlikable characters, if they're well written.

I think it's a strength of character thing, since Rush is hardly 'likeable'...but he's interesting. I want to see more of him, and what he's doing.
(Incidentally, the whole "no-one trusts him 'cause he has his own agenda" is getting a bit old to me. It's probably a tribute to Robert Carlyle, but I trust him...)

Chloe, on the other hand, has the strength of character of a piece of cold, wet spaghetti.
Also - I'm not sure if I can describe this very well, but...she seems to be defined by her relationships with men. She's on the ship in the first place 'cause of her father. She gets into a 'relationship' with Scott very quickly (or semi-quickly, I'm not sure about the time-scale). She screams for help from a man when the lights go out, and leads him on, apparently oblivious to his attraction to her. And when she's back on Earth, she gets steaming drunk after seeing her ex-boyfriend - EX, mind you, and she's sleeping with someone else at this point - in a relationship with someone else. Man alive. When I see it all together, I can't believe they're writing this claptrap.

Ep. 8 spoiler below.

Spoiler:
CHLOE IS DEAD!!! PARTY TIME!

Spoiler:
At least for a while more. It seems we have to wait until next week to see if they manage to fix everything, double time travel is a risky proposal.

Overall this one was fairly good in my opinion, even if the camera jumping was a bit annoying at times. It seems like Scott will be the lonely survivor for the series, he's survived twice now.
Also, how weird is it that Rush was holding his own time-traveled skull?
I make no claims to sanity, spelling, grammar, or really any content worth reading in my post. I also edit them.
