Since Altantis is surrounded by water, maybe there should be some water-breathing aliens. They was those come to Altantis before revealing themselves to the newcomers.

I would like to hear about other aliens that could be allies.

No, in one episode (I forget which at the moment) they investigate a nearby continent as a potiential settlement for the displaced Athosians.

Water-based aliens are a good idea. Expensive to shoot, though, so I won't hold my breath.

Get it? Hold my... ahh, that's rich. *wipes tear* sigh.

Speaking of shooting, I think I might want to shoot someone after that joke. ;) J/K, but you have to admit, that was pretty bad. Back on-topic, it would be nice to see some water-aliens. Anyone notice how the underwater shots of Atlantis were lacking a bit of life?

This passed season, Star Trek: Enterprise did a passable, if not spectacular, water race and they're pretty much giving those eps away in an effort to get to syndication. So I think Scifi channel could shell out the bucks to get a decent water based life form going.

The problem with sea-dwelling allies is that, unless there's a bridging technology/biology, there's really not a lot of interaction that can take place. They'd just turn into the Atlantean version of the Tolan or the Asgaard, there to answer questions, but not a lot else.

They could write it so they could interact easily, I'm sure, but I don't think they'd bother to head down that path.

They had a TV series in 1977, called Man from Atlantis, where he was human but could breath air but every so often had to go back to the sea to build up his strength. Patrick Duffy starred as the waterbreathing man from Atlantis.

The writers could based the Aliens on something of that nature. Then the Aliens could interact with dryworlders, (Air breathers) when they need to.

I'd be disappointed if they introduced an Aquaman type character.

Or if they are mammals they wouldn't have to worry about them carrying water. Then again you would think if they breathed air we would see them all ready.

Fish can live in land for a very long time. The mudskipper is one of them. All they need to make sure is that their gills don't dry up.

I created a race of fish-like people (which I called the Sea Folk or Seftot) for my own fiction. They're actually mammals, and closely related to humans, but they do need to return to the water occasionally or their skin will dry out, which would be quite uncomfortable. But they'd be fine as long as they go back to soak for a while.

In the SG world, are there any aliens like the Wookiees, or a Predator or Alien? A friendly Chewbacca-type would be good. But a Predator or Alien would probably be overcome by getting back through the Stargate and not returning to that destination, huh? Or how about some Gungans with their eco-friendly lifestyle?

there migth have been other enemies that the wraith had, back in the day before the acients but none anymore other wise they would have destroyed them while they slept. Plus wraith only like to eat human so any other races that do exsist in this galaxy prob dont get involved with the wraith because the wraith dont annoy them. but then again the asgard fight the gou'ald even know the gou'ald dont take them as hosts.

maybe later we will find what is left of a race that lived with the wraith thousands of years before the accents got there. a race that might have been food for them and then rose up but they got beat back. So the wraith dont win they all killed them self's, then the wraith went back to sleep until another centiened races stepped onto its feeding grounds?

oh and they will be a aquatic race that lives underwater called squishy.

you know the very thought that Patrick Duffy will swim up, wearing those ridiculous yellow trunks of his, and interact on any level with the SGA makes me want to go and watch something all cold and icy, with the characters wearing lots and lots of clothes.

Sorry greytop; that's not what they meant by water-based. That creature merely lived in the water. The others are referring to somethng along the lines of the creature in the movie, The Abyss. ;) It was seemingly made up of water molecules. :)

I hate to overgeneralise, but all sub-aquatic heroes ever suck like a singularity, period. The Man from Atlantis, Namor the Submariner, Aquaman; all of them, lame.

Not their fault, really, but when your powers all require you to be in the water and commune with the fishes, you really need to work the beat rather than joining a primarily terrestrial superteam and be relegated to the occasional bit of sewer infiltration or other - if you will - wetwork.
