ok so im from usa and eagerly awaiting tommorow's premire of the backends of the 2 series... have read no spoilers and dont want it to be spoiled... but in sga's "the return part1" (season 3 midseason finale) it ends with the atlantis team heading through the gate, disobeying orders and trying to save atlantis and o'neill (very remineisant of "within the serpants grasp" (the sg1 season 1 finale).... why isnt sg-1 on board with this plan or doign something of their own? i highly doubt all members of sg1 would ever leave it to... yeah hes probably dead so why sacrifice ourselves... and death really isnt a reason not to do soemthing for teal'c... so why dont we see them perhaps tagging along and joining forces with the atlantis team to help save 1 of their own? it would make for a great episode and make sense!- maybe it does happen but nothing in those (next time on...) has shown anything to effect. seems like a job for sg1 more so than... sga-1?- i dunno... its almost like they kinda leave him out to dry on this 1.. :jack_new_anime25:

Would've been most excellent and I've thought that myself.

It would have made the episode prohibitively expensive and the screen-time requirements of having upwards of 10 main characters probably would need to make the ep a 3 parter.

Easy answer: $$$. They can't pay so much star in the cross-over episodes. I think you will like RDA in Return, part 2, so the "spirit of SG-1" will be there too. ;)

I hope every American fan will watch live SG-1 and Atlantis tomorrow, because Quest 2 and Return 2 are one of the best episodes in the SG history. I would like to see 1,5+ rating! :)

Cos the Atlantis team go against orders and to get SG-1 involved would expose them to being discovered.

That and if they went running to big brother every time they got into trouble then Atlantis would suffer in the long run.

And what everyone else has said about it being prohibitively expensive having the cast of SG-1 on board aswell as RDA and the regulars.

Its best that SGA-1 solve their own problems if Atlantis is to survive as the sole flag holder of the Stargate franchise...with the occasional guest appearance of course :D

Obviously in the SG Universe SG1 would be trying to save O'Neill as much as the SGA team were trying to get back but its just one of those things you have to accept wont happen with the shows being seperate.

I guess though it would have been nice if we got a little scene where perhaps Walter asks Landry if hes told SG1 yet and for example Landry tells him they are on a mission and it would only split their focus.

If you remember "Critical Mass", there they mentioned that Carter is also working with Lee to send the message about the Goa'uld to Atlantis without stargate. They also spoke about Carter's new anti-replicator weapons in Return, part 1. I like that the writers give us such information about the characters. ;)

If Atlantis and SG-1 are supposed to be running more or less on the same timeline, SG-1 would have been off searching for the Sangraal about the time this all happened. That's assuming The Quest pt 1 and The Return Pt 1 happened in roughly the same time period.

And this is Atlantis, not SG1.

I've asked this before. If we take Quest & Return to be running parallel, the we have our answer.

Simply b/c it wouldnt make sense with Sg-1 looking for the Sangral at the exact same time.

They already have three major SG-1 characters guest starring: O'Neill, Landry, and Woosley. That's plenty! The in-story explanation could be that SG-1 was offworld and unaware of what was happening to Atlantis.

Agree. Had SG-1 known about O'Neil in danger, they would no doubt risk their lives and defy orders to go save him.
