...meaning have they used the Stargate enough to your liking? And i dont mean those possible missions where we dont see it on camera...but new missions and planets we have actually seen on the show for the past 9 years. I think they have used the Stargate a lot (and I know they are on a budget) but I would have liked to seen more alien planets (like in Cold Lazarus....not just futuristic like in Space Race) and I would have liked to seen more episodes where they go through the Stargate for the sake of exploring, not because they have to for a crisis.
I dont know why, but there do not seem to be that many episodes solely based off-world....but I know thats not the case.
Thats why I like a lot of the one-off episodes like Red Sky (perfect example), where they go to a world for exploring, a crisis occurs, they encounter a race of humans tied to a direct time period (Puritans), and the problem is related to something alien and the whole team works together to solve the problem.
So, forgetting that there are missions we as a viewer do not see.....do you think SG-1 has gone through the Stargate enough times or would you have liked to see more? Would you have liked to see any different situations of them going through the gate (other than exploratory or a crisis...kinda like The Ties that Bind did in going from SGC to Planet A and then directly to Planet B)?, any comments (good or bad) on the level of off-world-ness we have seen the past 9 years on this amazing show?
