    Default Spoils of War

    Hey Guys,

    I am back (haven't been here in a long time - I guess I was frustrated that there was ZERO SG on TV...not here, not in the US, Canada or anywhere else - at least none that I have not watched before) and I have a question:

    Do you consider it "unfair" that the Spoils of the Wars with the Goa'uld (and later the Ori) have not been divided up equally between the major parties involved (i mean, during WW-II the winners (the Allied-Nations and Russia) divided Germany between them (till they returned our country to us - after getting rid of the leadership that lead us into the IMHO pointless war) so this should happen here, too I think!)

    What I want to say is: Our People did a lot of the fighting (and dying!) in these wars and provided our Allies (the Jaffa and the Tok'ra) with supplies, safe-havens and assistance when needed (not to mention that they screwed us over sometimes...like the time when helping them cost us a Goa'uld Ha'tak!) so we should at least get one third of the ships captured by either Jaffa and Tok'ra.

    And, let's face it, we could have used them in the time since the Goa'uld were defeated, there were several close calls which could have been avoided if we had more ships (like stopping the super-hive with say 20 of the Ha'taks Anubis upgraded) and I don't even want to think about a fully upgraded mothership...Asgard-Beams and all that!....

    So, you turn to answer

    greetings LAX

    man... it is a figure of speech *shakes his head and sighs*

    still, that does not answer the question

    greetings LAX
    ps: helping is not the same as giving us "our" fair share of things!

    Penalizing germany was the problem.


    but on topic: Earth did not do a whole lot in the Goauld conflict. I mean, it required Dakara and Oma Desala to defeat Anubis and the Replicators, but the replicators were something we made worse, and the System Lords arguably could've fought Anubis if they weren't so weakened by internal strife.

    what we did was causing a lot of trouble and then mopping it up.

    Well lets see. Prior to us, the Tollans and Tok'ra had killed how many system lords? 0. After we came on scene, how many did they kill? IIRC 1. How many did we get? 5-6..

    Yet more people than ever died. Apparently, things were quite peaceful before we killed Ra.

    From what Teal'c said many a time, they were always battling one another.. so there were plenty of deaths prior to us kacking Ra...

    Us... we....

    Anyway, remember that before the death of Ra, the System Lords did take care of Sokar and Anubis at one point. I also remember that there was some mention of former System Lords kicked off after being defeated.

    In fact, the only thing that truly changed after the death of Ra was an acceleration of powerful System Lords being killed, but not the bickering and petty disputes with each other.

    Prometheus isn't exactly a good ship really. Good for anti-fighter combat sure.

    Only with shields and other Asgard based technology. Weapons were still Earth based and inferior.

    Because we haven't seen the Prometheus actually destroy one now have we? The Prometheus weapons were on par with the Deadalus which had issues before the 'Unending' upgrades.

    True.. we saw several battles between the Promie and hataks, and even the dadelus/Oddessy and hataks.. not one showed us blowing up or even seriously damaging any of the Hataks..

    Here is the thing, until the Asgard gave the Tauri (them not us, we are reality, they are not just a pet peeve) the 303 and 304s were at a disadvantage when it came to weapons. Sure the Asgard shields allowed them to withstand a incredibly amount of firepower, but doesn't do anyone any good if you can't damage them. Those railguns are useless against shields and those missiles can be shot down or intercepted.
