About SGA fan retaliation... uh... seriously? People really blame the show's cancellation in its second season on SGA fans' dissatisfaction with the fact that Carson Beckett died on SGA three years previously, even though he got better two years previously? Is there any evidence that that's what happened, or even any evidence that at least three people believe that's what happened?

Can anyone find any info that backs up the entry pasted below?

— In Name Only: One of the major reasons for the vast departure in tone and style from the original series was that the series concept started out as something entirely different, but the studio wasn't interested. They were, however, interested in a new Stargate series. So the creator tacked on the Stargate elements, despite apparently disliking' SG-1 and Atlantis''. —

Every reference I've found to the show's creation lists Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper as the creators, with Carl Binder and Joseph Mallozzi as exec producers. All of these people were involved in the other SG shows.

I'm started working on recaps, but I'm not going through all 30 episodes alone. I need your help.

BTW, why episode pages are not indexed? Even visitation which is between two already-existing pages?

If we are to start building episode recaps (a worthwhile endeavor, I might add), it may be a good idea to start with moving episode-specific tropes to their respective pages. In this fashion, we can help alleviate the growing spoilers problem with the latest episodes.

I also recommend that we take the existing articles down (or at least hide them) until we can get a proper grammar check done. Given the status of the show, I wouldn't want anything but the very best material (of any form) to come from the fan community.

This is the excerpt from "Sabotage," copied from the Gate World transcript:
WALLACE: And on the second night the Kino remote just lit up. I guess I just thought you guys must have figured something out. We dialled back and here we are.

Notice that he made no reference to 'Gating closer to the Destiny.

He didn't have to. They already had gated closer to Destiny. That's why they got the map. They weren't on the same planet they started on.

When did it say that?

If you are referring to the episode "Lost," then be aware that that is not the issue. The issue is the post made by

  • Actually Eli explained it when they got on board. When they saw the Destiny still hadn't jumped yet, they reliased they had unexpected time to make it on board. So jumped a few gates to closer and dailed aboard. So yeah.. luck+common sense = Reality ensuring.

The fact being that Eli made no such comment.

Regarding the Continuity Drift with the hyper-drives, if I'm remembering correctly (which is why I'm posting here - I'm no where near sure) didn't Atlantis draw a distinction between inter-galactic and intra-galactic hyper-drives?

Its more about speed. You can travel within small town with a bicycle, but you need bus or train to travel into another town

It's possible that accelerating to top speed takes time, or that hyperspace travel in intergalactic space is faster because there is far less interference from gravity wells, both have precedents in other sci-fi settings.

Regarding the latest addition (the Fridge Logic bit that judging by the visuals, Destiny should have been far out of range of all stargates), I'd chalk it up to them wanting an awesome visual (the galaxy far off in the distance): in Sabotage they state that they were able to dial in "on the second night", which means, if they consider the time they were stuck on the planet as 'night zero', they spent at most 48 hours there. Destiny isn't nearly fast enough to get that far off the galaxy in 48 hours.

(Writing this here to avoid Conversation in the Main Page.)

Sorry I didn't check the discussion page earlier.

In any case, they may have been on the planet for as little as, say, ~20 hours (if its days are short and they arrived at nightfall). Nevertheless, I was established in "Lost" that the Destiny passes quite a few Stargates between each stop. Unless Scott, Armstrong, and Wallace were stuck on the planet for over a week, something funny is still going on.
