I didn't notice it in this episode, but he had one in another. Maybe they brought it back!

I never noticed it in Sateda. Cool.

I think he had it in The Seed, but I'm not sure. It was in one of the first three episodes of this season.

I think Sheppard had the DS in the end of Search & Rescue.

I remember in one episode he was sitting on his bunk drinking a beer reading a comic book. I thought that was pretty cool too. Don't remember the episode though. Unless it was Sunday, but I don't think so.

The device on the Sateda screencap is definitely not a DS, it's more like a communicator or a UMPC, can't guess the model from the side which was shown.

But I definitely remember the Johntendo DS being featured before.

I don't know what it is but that is definitely not a DS Mitchell - the first time we saw Shep with a DS (its a white one) was in the infirmary scene at the end of S&R. Both S&R and TDV were directed by Andy Mikita and according to Joe M it was his idea to give Shep the DS.

It's not a DS.

John had one at the end of Search & Rescue. It's probably the same one as in this episode as they were both Pearl White.

Hmm then I wonder what that was in Sateda.

i think its fitting that he has a ds i mean hes always been such a kid when it comes to games and we know from the game that he likes computer games. i dnt think it was a ds but can anyone rember what he was fiddling with at the end of the long good bye i seem to remember something there.

It looks like he was fiddling with a PDA. It's about the size of one (a little larger than a cell phone) and it had a pen attachment.

It's interesting how they've used it. In S&R, there was a beeping sound when he touched the screen, making it seem like a computing device. However, in TDV, he was obviously playing a game.

I MUST KNOW WHAT HE WAS PLAYING!!! http://forum.gateworld.net/images/gw_smilies/sheppard28.gif

Rodney has one in BAMSR, when creating Fran. It's obviously some kind of wireless computer. Miniature laptop maybe, or hand scanner.

You can tell it's not a ds because if you look at it closely the screen slides up, there are no hinge things to make it flip open. I hope they don't make special ones that do slide that can prove my answer wrong.

maybe the props department used a ds and changed it to look like something else, theyre very good and making normal stuff look amazingly different

Why reinvent something when there are BAGILLIONS of pda's and personal computing devices that look totally different from one another out there?

Because then it's harder to tell that the thing you used is really just modified earth tech...for example...a modified DS would likely be harder to tell than the life signs detector, which is actually an old HP iPaq with a custom little case on it.

I think its a benchmark of the show, very often we see Sheppard playing with something in his hospital bed. At the end of the episode "The Long Goodbye" he is sitting in a hospital bed playing with a PDA, at the end of "Search and Rescue" he's in a hospital bed with a Nintendo DS. The one in "Sateda" looks more like one of those sidekicks.

It's possible, but there are A LOT of devices out there with that general design.
