Thank your SueKay ... glad you have your computer all ready for our Annual Shipper day. I wasn't around last year. In fact I think at that time I was not even aware of GW. Though I was already watching SG1 and loving the ship.

OK, so I went back to when I asked this questions and I've gathered below your answers, I thought we could use this as a poll for ship day, but I came out with to many moments :eek: and then we say there is no ship....

So I thought we could have 2 polls separated by category:

* Poll 1 - Best shippy moment Hug, Head on Shoulder and Kiss Category, this could be a poll at the begining of the thread and we have to vote only for one.
- Fire and Water - Hug
- Death Knell - Head on Shoulder & Hug
- Beneath the Surface - Head on Shoulder
- Out of Mind - Hug
- Heroes II - Hug
- Metaporphosis - Head on Shoulder
- Point of View - Kiss
- Window of Oportunity - Kiss
- Moebius II - Kiss
- Grace - Kiss


* Poll 2: Best shippy moment non Hug, Head on Shoulder or Kiss :p, this could be done during the day, we get to vote for 3 moments each and everybody puts a :p face next to their vote, the next person to vote takes the post before and adds it's vote, that way we can see how it is going during the day and at the end, I official count the :p and post the top 3.

- 2010: Jack & Sam talking at the Cabin
- Absolute Power: Sam telling Jack when she was locked up by Daniel "All I have is my word and that used to mean something to you"
- Nemesis: Jack inviting Sam to go fishing
- Window of Oportunity: At the end, Jack staring at Sam knowing that he had kissed her.
- Lost City part 2: Jack is frozen and Sam puts her hand on the glass and stares at him.
- The Light: Opening scene Sam & Jack talking and Jack teasing Sam about the bet with Daniel.
- Divide and Conquer: Za'tarc testing and Jack saying, I care more about her than I ought to (maybe this one should be taken out.. it will win)
- Lost City part 1: Sam goes to talk to Jack at his house.
- Citizen Joe: The phone conversation at the beg of the ep
- Point of View: Sam watches Jack say goodbye to AU Sam
- Emancipation: Sam does the twirl in the dress and Jack smiles.
- Moebius 2: Hand on Hand in the briefing room
- Moebius 2: Chicago Cubs moment.
- 48 Hours: Jack asking Sam if she wants to be in the gateroom when they power up the Russian DHD
- Divide and Conquer: When they are taking Jack away for the procedure, Sam is watching and he looks back at her
- GENESIS: At the beg when Jack gets closer to look at the moniter and she get's all nervous
- Beneath the Surface: THe end scene, when Sam calls Jack, "Sir"
- Serpents Venom: Sam is under the mine, Jack lays his head on her tummy to see.
- Memento: Near the end, SG-1 is inviting for a banquet and the word "cake" is mentioned, Jack and Sam share a look.
- In the line of Duty: Sam is taken to the infirmary, Jack follows and he tries to brush away the tear in his eyes.
- Entity: Jack is sitting by Sam, Janet tells him about her living will and asks him to let her go. Jacks says to give it a moment.
- Lost City 2: When Jack and Sam are in the machine room and Sam want to tell him something... the "kiss" moment that never happened.
- Threads: Sam and Jack fishing

What do you think, for poll # 1 we need ShipMum to set it up.

What do you think?

Hi, I'm sorry to be a pest :( but I saw no opinion... should we go with the 2 polls, only 1, 1 and 2, none :p it's Ok if none, but if we do go we would need to ask a mod to set poll 1 and I know it normally takes time.

Thanks....

I'm trying to get an interview with an actor well known in the SG1 universe...but I'm too shy to ask...do you think I should just go for it???

sueKay, You are not alone anymore!!!! Interview for......? Your website, magazine, Ship Day??!!! I am curious!! Hee, hee? Oh, and the interviewee is...............?? Well, the best way to approach someone is directly, respectfully and honestly. If it's RDA (hee, hee) I'll be glad to help you out!! Ahem, just give me his email address or phone. I prefer in-person interviews. OK, I'm being silly. :D As I said earlier, you are not alone!

It's not related to ship day in any way...I just need some moral support. It may be something for the Jack fans on the forum...PM me and I'll tell ya who.

I'm not telling in public, because I've already been turned down by another actor because legal reasons and having to go through different checks and stuff before getting the interview...so I'm not trying to get anyone's hopes up.

There was one poll for last year's ship day - 2nd annual ship day

3 polls for 3 years...since year 1 was missed out!!!

Cameron beats the hologram knight but the caven begins to collapse untill they realized that vala has stolen a coin from the original room. Cameron returns the coin and puts the sword back in the stone and the treasure is revealed. The Ancients had placed the treasure on Earth (group called Atarins?) and Daniel wants to investigate. They found a device which is a communication device and when you attach the stone in a certain sequence -Daniel and Vala tried it and they get knocked out and transport into the past into different bodies.

Hmm...you'd better ask one of the US shippers...I won't see Avalon until October and I can't be bothered reading spoilers...I believe that TPTB are just throwing us breadcrumbs, and when you've got a blackforest gateaux in the form of fanfics...you don't really need spoilers!

Sorry...that was slightly snarky...I'm just having some trust issues with the Stargate Producers at the moment.

Hey Shipper Family!

Had to pop in after my 15 year old son made the sweetest comment...

While watching SG-1, during a commercial break, they did a little promo spot with Sam and Daniel looking at each other. My son asked "Where's she at"? (meaning Sam). I said...she's on maternity leave. He said..."who's is it? Jack's?"

Such a young shipper and he doesn't even know it!

I'll be glad to open the thread, if that's ok with the rest of the family. Here's what I propose:
We Call It: 3rd Annual S/J Ship Day Thread
Yep, although as Nell says we should call it Sam/Jack and maybe include the date... ;)

We Put It: Under Characters & Relationships
Perfect!

We Open It: 12-midnight Eastern Daylight Time on Thursday, July 28
I don't know about the time, I'm un the US EST, so it works for me, but we will need the input of shippers from our other continents :D

((((((((Nell & SG1-Fanintn))))) Thanks for taking so much care of ship day.

I've been a fan of stargate for just about a year now after being a science fiction fan since I was at least 12 (i'm now 25). I'm also a girl guide and rainbow guide leader so I'm used to running a madhouse and to add to it all I'm also a qualified nursery nurse (i must be mad,lol).

Yes, I've told my son about the ship. He's major into girls right now, and can enjoy a bit of romance. He told me earlier that he figured that Sam and Jack were going to get together sooner or later--whether he "likes" it or not. :p

Apart from JM cos we all wuv him really!



Now it's my turn to be snarky <g> - Not "all" of us wuv JM. Personally, I find him the worst of the bunch because he's not following through on the ship (like all the rest of TPTB) while trying to fool us into thinking he's for it. I don't believe it, or he'd be fighting the other PTB tooth and nail to give us more of the ship than the pittance we got in S8.

After all, who is worse: the person who openly dislikes us for no reason? Or the person who pretends to be a friend while working against us behind our backs? I know which I feel is worse.

Sorry, suekay, but I couldn't go along with such a general statement when every time I log on I'm reminded of what TPTB have done (or not done), JM included.

Wow . . . I guess JM isn't a good topic for me when I'm PMSing and had a long week at the office.

Mary you are not far from the truth! After watching tonight's episode, I think I'm going to stay away from the show for the rest of the summer. I can't believe they can think they are improving the show. Just the opening credits is enough to make you sick! They must be high from fame if they think the old fans are going to deal with this silliness. They should have ended the show two years ago and moved the cast members who wanted to work to Atlantis. They are all involved with this nonsense JM,PD TPTB Shame!

I almost fell asleep watching tonight.Daniel just cannot carry this Show IMO.TPTB also need to stop with the Mitchell flashbacks.TPTB are trying to paint Mitchell as the greatest Hero of the SGC.IMO many Fans are going to turn on Mitchell real quick if things do not improve.IMO Jack was a great character because he had flaws and was a character most Fans could relate with and TPTB did not try to Show Jack as the greatest Human being ever. It is going to be very hard to keep watching this Season.I'am just trying to hold out for Sam's return.This Show needs a ton of work to be decent IMO.It will be very interesting to find out the ratings on Monday.I really hope the Ship is worth sticking with this Show.

beware of swearing, gay relationships and other stuff like that

this is one of the best fanfics I have read. Laughed from January to December. Did you know that Jack has a diary, too! Just January to April.

What is that flash back garbage! Enough! Even MS and CJ don't look or act familiar. They should have just started and new series. I feel bad for AT and what she's walking into. If they rewrote MS and CJ character's personalities, what did they do to Sam's character? I'm scared!

Trupi,

I am actually really p***ed with Avalon tonight. My 5 year old was watching the ep ,since SG-1 is her favorite "grown-up" show and she snuck out of her bedroom as she knew it was on, just minutes before the
Vala gets burnt to death scene .

I couldn't get her out of the room fast enought.

Where the heck were the parental warnings on this one???

I just don't know where the minds of Sci-Fi and TPTB are right now!

BTW - I'll e-mail you later.

I'am starting to wonder about the Critics who praised Season 9.What Show were they watching and I hope we get to see the same Show.I'am starting to think AT may be the only hope for this Show.I think things do not look good for the Teal'c character.It's only 2 episodes and I'am sick of the Jaffa rebellion already.This Show needs to stop with the lousy dialog and start giving us some half way decent action scenes.I'am not talking about the Vala scene either.

I thought the same thing! I posted this on another thread, but the interaction between the actors are stale. Jokes are falling flat and there seems to be a lot of standing around. I know these actors are better than this I have seen them do better. This is supposed to draw in a new audience, they may get what they want, but lost the faithful fans that have been around since the beginning. I am still hopeful they will pull this one out. AT returns in 4 episodes and RDA will be back next week!

You can make a difference!. Please keep voting! Catch up on the tourney (and which eps have been eliminated so far) here: http://forum.gateworld.net/showthread.php?t=12889&page=81&pp=20

Be careful! If you accidentally vote for an ep that has already been eliminated, none of your votes will count in that round.

Sam and Jack thank you. I thank you!

I've been a fan of stargate for just about a year now after being a science fiction fan since I was at least 12 (i'm now 25). I'm also a girl guide and rainbow guide leader so I'm used to running a madhouse and to add to it all I'm also a qualified nursery nurse (i must be mad,lol).

I'am starting to wonder about the Critics who praised Season 9.What Show were they watching and I hope we get to see the same Show.I'am starting to think AT may be the only hope for this Show.I think things do not look good for the Teal'c character.It's only 2 episodes and I'am sick of the Jaffa rebellion already.This Show needs to stop with the lousy dialog and start giving us some half way decent action scenes.I'am not talking about the Vala scene either.
I'm beginning to wonder WTF TPTB were smokin'....probably naquadria-enhanced pot or somethin'...:P:D

It would not surprise me.I see alot of people on the Avalon part 2 thread seem to like this episode.What are they seeing that I'am not?I'am not seeing anything new and exciting.Tonight was like much of Season 7 and 8 all talk and no action.It was non stop Daniel and Vala and Teal'c Jaffa rebellion and TPTB going overboard trying to make Mitchell the Greatest American Hero.I'am really trying to like Season 9 but so far it's not happening.I still hope for things to turn around but it will not be until AT returns IMO.

I didn't hate. I didn't love it. I like Landry's take charge attitude. Mitchell is a smart airman and not full of himself. Vala really toned down when she was facing death. Daniel is Daniel. I don't want him to hook up with Vala but he deserves someone. Dr. Caroline Landry is smart and professional so far. Teal'c is in angst whether to serve the Free Jaffa or the greater good by joining the Tauri in explorations. Dr. Lee is comic relief. I'm giving them more episodes to become cohesive. Now, about Jack. This is not the first episode that he has been absent but I know that he is not a regular anymore. That hasn't quite sunk in. I'm looking forward to seeing him next week. I hope that the new SG-1 is a team by the time Sam joins them. The single factor keeping me watching may be that I'm not giving up the Ship!

The Ship factor is keeping me watching as well.I do think the Show will improve after AT returns.I do think it is Vital the show takes off right after AT returns because many Fans may only give it a couple more episode after AT returns.I must say Vala was better in part 2.I think the Jaffa rebellion will hurt the Show.Most of the Fans I've heard from do not like the Jaffa rebellion story.IMO TPTB should keep the Jaffa story in check.

Hey Shipper Family!

Had to pop in after my 15 year old son made the sweetest comment...

While watching SG-1, during a commercial break, they did a little promo spot with Sam and Daniel looking at each other. My son asked "Where's she at"? (meaning Sam). I said...she's on maternity leave. He said..."who's is it? Jack's?"

Such a young shipper and he doesn't even know it!

My opinion on Avalon pt2 ... The plot sucked. The whole swordfight was badly done and they made poor Ben Browder look like a doofus. I love Ben and Claudia and this just made me miss Farscape all the more. The writing for Ben and Claudia on Farscape was far superior to what we are getting here. I really felt like I was watching a Stargate spin off for Daniel and Tealc. Daniels speed talking is really driving me crazy and I actually screamed "shut up" while listening to him. His 'wife' Lexa as the Dr. just seemed to be doing a very pale imitation of Teryls Janet, who was a far better character. The Jaffa stuff holds no interest for me, never really did. Missed the ship alot while watching the ep. Michael S. and Claudia B. have zero chemistry together. Mitchell seemed more concerned about Vala than Daniel did, even tho Daniel was screaming to let her go. Probably me missing John and Aeryn, but still don't see the Danny/Vala chemistry.

All in All a really boring ep. Really missed Amanda and Rick. This is really going to be hard for me to watch until Amanda comes back. I'd actually really like for Claudia to stay if we could see less of Daniel/Tealc. Sorry to the Michael/Chris fans , but as Daniel says that just happens to be how I feel about it.

Wow, you read my mind. I feel the same way. I didn't see anything special between Daniel/ Vala in Prometheus unbound, so I never did understand why they brought her back. It was like she wanted to do the opposite of Aeryn, but she was awkward with it. I loved farscape too. I was excited to find out BB was going to be on the show, but when I read Vala was also coming back, I groaned. And they did not do a very good job introducing Dr. Lam either. Too much going on and I felt she got lost. Although I did like that CM showed concern for Vala, because I think they are setting him up to be a compassionate, take care of everyone type of guy, which I did like about John Crichton. I can't wait for Sam to be apart of the team again, and I REALLY can't wait for those precious small glimpses of Jack. :(

I still don't know what to think. I'm so desperate for some good new sci fi shows, that I will settle for mediocre. My Bab 5, Farscape, Firefly, and Season 1-7 Stargate DVDs are wearing out. I think they are trying to do too much at once. A lot of new characters, new bad guys, beloved characters absent for no apparent reason. The S/J ship could have at least given us an anchor to the past that we all obviously loved. They could have said anything about S/J without either actor actually being there, and I could have felt better about all these changes. I, however, continue to believe that TPTB are intelligent, because of the last eight seasons, and know their audience, and I will stay on the ride for ONE more season.

I thought Avalon 2 was better than Avalon 1 as well. Vala was also toned down on pt 2 which made her character more likeable in my opinion. She even appears to have something else on her mind besides money and sex. Perhaps her character will evolve into something more.

sg-1fanintn is absolutely correct in saying that SG-A is better than SG-1. It hurts me to say so since SG-1 is my first love. Still...I'm giving S9 a chance. Once AT gets back it's got to be better. I also have a hard time believing that she would stick with something that's on such rocky terrain. Also, Jack is back next week!!!

Nell, my thought are exactly the same, I did not like it, but I did not hate it, it was definitely different though in a way they are introducing a new enemey, a new world and doing that without Sam and Jack is strange, everything is different.

Vala was OK, finally an episode where it was not all about sex with her.

First, good morning to everybody for whom it is still morning :)

Second, since there's a bit of an informal poll going, I too am a Girl Scout. I'm also the assistant leader for my daughter's junior/cadet troop - gold or silver award projects anyone?

Third, I've been watching the posts here for several weeks, long before I actually joined, much less started posting myself, and I have a question. Do the majority of the people here watch SG-1 primarily for the S/J ship? Are there others, like me, who adore the ship but are quite content to watch the show for other reasons as well? I'm curious because of the number of folks who seem to dislike any episode that doesn't have ship or at least S/J in it.

Personally, I enjoy SG-1 for lots of reasons. Yes, the S/J ship is one of my favorite aspects, but I really like nearly all of the characters (except possibly for Landry who still seems a bit stuffy to me). Teal'c's understated humor, Daniel's tendency to stick his nose where it really doesn't belong, Mitchell's awkward attempts to find his place in the program, and Vala's outrageous behavior all interest me for different reasons, and while the show does seem a little rocky at the moment, I attribute that in large part to the fact that they're blending a new group of actors and it always takes time for the new folks to get their footing on a show - whether it's the first episode or the 200th.

Just my humble opinion - my apologies if I've caused offense...

Hey Ayiana!

Don't worry - no offense caused.

For me? Ship is not the main draw...it's just the one that I talk about the most as I don't really fit in with the sciency types. I just feel that without Jack, the show's lost a certain 'oomph' and I feel qualitatively that the show's slowly going downhill...My favourite episodes aren't normally shippy, as long as they're good character-driven episodes. For instance...I love Daniel episodes and I love most of the Teal'c episodes...yet I cannot stand watching Grace...even for that kiss!!!

It's just too much too soon! The old fans need time to accept the changes but they are throwing everything and the kitchen sink into the episodes, making it very hard to adjust. We might have lost Lynn because her 5 year old daughter walked intoVala burning scene and was very upset. They forget (or don't care) that kids watch the show and being at 8 EST kids are still up. They need to give kid warning if they going to start showing very discriptive scenes, on the show!

Hello Ayiana, One rule of this thread is that all opinions count and are good :p so no need to apologize, we are all different, we have different likes but we are all here because we love the ship :p:p:p

I personally started loving SG-1 because of RDA/Jack, after it was the great stories and team chemistry between the characters and the actors where great and last but not least, the ship, coming to this thread has made me re-discover all the episodes again and it has been fun.

S9 is different, the team as I had known for the past 8 years is no longer so it is definitely a new show, so no RDA, no team and no ship that is 0/3, but hey, I'm still watching and I'll still be, but I'm also waiting to discover this new team and this new show, I don't think I will have my mind made up until mid season, but I do have hopes.

PS: On the poll :p I was a Brownie in Scotland, but never a guide :( I have bought the cookies in the US, there is a white chocolate rasperry or something like that that is :p yummy :p

I agree 1000%.I do not want to upset anyone but IMO the Daniel character is just not leading character material on this Show.The same goes for Teal'c.TPTB need to give something else besides the Jaffa rebellion to Teal'c.TPTB also need to lose the Mitchell flashbacks real quick.I was expecting to hear the Rocky theme during the Sword fight.I though the Jonas character worked well because he was not the instant Hero and had to gain respect.I never got the feeling Jonas was trying to replace Daniel.I think the Sam character has the ability to be the lead character and TPTB should have Daniel and Teal'c play off Sam as much as possible and not have Daniel or Teal'c go off on there own.I always though Daniel and Teal'c worked real well with Jack and Jack had the ability to keep the Daniel character from being way out there.

Hi Suekay, I was born in Venezuela and raised in Scotland (Glasgow) I lived there for 7 years did all my primary school and I have the best of memories, I had so much fun, that's where I learned my english, but my scottish accent is now gone :(

After that came back to Venezuela and then moved to Spain (that's where I first saw Stargate :p it was the only non-spanish show I could get and it was on Saturday's at 1am :p, but I got hooked) moved to Mexico where I could watch SG-1 in the MGM channel... and now in the US where I get it directly on SCIFI and where I became a shipper :D and going to my first Con next month! what a journey :p oh and I've also spent a lot of my time in France and have my relief watching my favorite show in french :p

Think I read somewhere that this season is going to be a lot about Daniel, which doesn't excite me one bit. I like Daniel but he's not my favorite and many of his best bits were playing off Jack. Before a Daniel fan takes umbrage I didn't say that's ALL I liked. Liked "Lifeboat" for instance. The Danielites are probably in hog heaven, tho. Sometimes I can't believe the amount of Daniel centered fanfic compared with that centered on other characters. I know he was the main character in the movie, but much has envolved since then. Yes, lose those Mitchell flashbacks asap. Whose idea was that?
Is anyone else worried that they are going to spring something on us about Jack next ep that we won't like?

Hi Suekay, I was born in Venezuela and raised in Scotland (Glasgow) I lived there for 7 years did all my primary school and I have the best of memories, I had so much fun, that's where I learned my english, but my scottish accent is now gone :(

After that came back to Venezuela and then moved to Spain (that's where I first saw Stargate :p it was the only non-spanish show I could get and it was on Saturday's at 1am :p, but I got hooked) moved to Mexico where I could watch SG-1 in the MGM channel... and now in the US where I get it directly on SCIFI and where I became a shipper :D and going to my first Con next month! what a journey :p oh and I've also spent a lot of my time in France and have my relief watching my favorite show in french :p
How many languages do you speak?

I though the Daniel in the Movie was great because Daniel and Jack worked great together.I think the SG-1 Daniel character gets in trouble when he works outside the Team.I always said the SG Movie and TV Show are very different.The Movie was pretty much Jack and Daniel and the TV Show is about the SG-1 Team.IMO it is vital to have Sam Mitchell Daniel and Teal'c work together as much as possible.I hope it changes but so far it appears to be too much splitting up of SG-1.IMO as far as the TV Show the only character who has really been able to work alone or with another guest Star is Jack.

I think that's enough! That's great, I'm foreign language stupid, wish I could speak one other but pretty good understanding somethings in Italian and Spanish. Just be aware that the Convention atmosphere is not always shippy. That's why we like to meet up with shippers. We watch each others sixes. I found out the hard way last year.

* Poll 1 - Best shippy moment Hug, Head on Shoulder and Kiss Category, this could be a poll at the begining of the thread and we have to vote only for one.

* Poll 2: Best shippy moment non Hug, Head on Shoulder or Kiss :p, this could be done during the day, we get to vote for 3 moments each and everybody puts a :p face next to their vote, the next person to vote takes the post before and adds it's vote, that way we can see how it is going during the day and at the end, I official count the :p and post the top 3.

What do you think?

Carolina

I think both polls would be fun!! :p

Now off to try and get my head round the shipper day timings so will be back with my vote for that soon :)

Timezones - We Started it from the very beginning of the day Australian time...don't know the technical term.

Then we kept it going until the very end of the day Pacific Time...making the day more like a day and a half, so that as many people as possible could take part.

I'm with suekay on this one as would be nice if we all had the full 24 hours of the 28th July where ever we are in this great big honkin world of ours!! :)

Third, I've been watching the posts here for several weeks, long before I actually joined, much less started posting myself, and I have a question. Do the majority of the people here watch SG-1 primarily for the S/J ship? Are there others, like me, who adore the ship but are quite content to watch the show for other reasons as well? I'm curious because of the number of folks who seem to dislike any episode that doesn't have ship or at least S/J in it.



Howdy, Ayiana!

I can't remember how long ago I started watching SG-1, but I was quite young--about 10/11, I think (and even then I loved the S/J romance :p). But I do remember that from the very first time I saw it I began to adore the character of Jack O'Neill. I won't lie when I say I've primarily watched the show for Jack. He makes me laugh and RDA is a wonderful actor. If it hadn't been for his face on screen, I probably would have watched it when I could be bothered, from time to time, but never with the, er, obsession and love that I have done for the past six years. ;) But there again I am going to watch season 9 when it hits the UK so it can't all be about him.

But yes, with Jack came the S/J ship, and I loved it! Unlike you, although I do enjoy different aspects of Stargate, I don't think I'll be as content in season 9 without the ship. Let me rephrase that... I won't be content if there's no emotion between the main characters. I don't think it's the actual romance that captures my imagination, it's the emotion. And despite the teary moments relating to Teal'c and Daniel, one of the best sources for emotion and feelings in the show, for me, centres around Sam and Jack's relationship and predicament.

I do watch SG-1 for other reasons. The "fantasy" genre--the abnormal and unknown--sucks me in like a big whoppin' black hole. In addition, I love action and adventure and the fighting scenes. But to me the best episodes come as a package. Action/capture/adventure usually leads to angst/hurt/danger, which brings about comfort/reassurance/honesty, which in the case of Sam and Jack equals SHIP. These are episodes such as Upgrades, Message in a Bottle, Into the Fire, Solitudes, Metamorphosis, Heroes and Lost City.

What I'm trying to say is that without emotion the episodes with or without their fancy ships, unusual aliens and big shiny guns don't mean a thing. Threads and Grace to me are two of the best episodes they've made, merely because of how sentimental they are (and even more emotional was Abyss, which is my absolute favourite due to Jack's pain and Daniel's comforting presence). Even in Window of Opportunity, which was one of my most humorous TV moments ever, the best, most powerful scene involved Jack shouting that he'd "lost his son" and seeing the reactions play across the faces of the three other SG-1 members.

So yeah, I do watch Stargate for the ship--because to me it's one of the most prominent and central sources for emotion and feelings in the show. It's rich in angst (aren't I nice? :D). And whatever new dynamics they introduce to us in season nine, I somehow doubt they could ever replace the depth of our favourite pair's feelings for the other... Mitchell or no Mitchell as a newly-intergrated part of the team.

Anyway, folks, it's good to be back, once again indulging Sam and Jack shippiness! :D I have a lot in this thread to read! What's Avalon like?

Yeah, what is it with the flasbacks. Lots of shows are utilizing that device now. SG1, BSG, Lost, etc. Lost is the only one it is fun with though.
And yes, i have been worried since I found out Jack wasn't coming back.

First, good morning to everybody for whom it is still morning :)

Second, since there's a bit of an informal poll going, I too am a Girl Scout. I'm also the assistant leader for my daughter's junior/cadet troop - gold or silver award projects anyone?

Third, I've been watching the posts here for several weeks, long before I actually joined, much less started posting myself, and I have a question.

I'm curious because of the number of folks who seem to dislike any episode that doesn't have ship or at least S/J in it.

Personally, I enjoy SG-1 for lots of reasons. Yes, the S/J ship is one of my favorite aspects, but I really like nearly all of the characters (except possibly for Landry who still seems a bit stuffy to me). Teal'c's understated humor, Daniel's tendency to stick his nose where it really doesn't belong, Mitchell's awkward attempts to find his place in the program, and Vala's outrageous behavior all interest me for different reasons, and while the show does seem a little rocky at the moment, I attribute that in large part to the fact that they're blending a new group of actors and it always takes time for the new folks to get their footing on a show - whether it's the first episode or the 200th.

Just my humble opinion - my apologies if I've caused offense...

I started watching the show because I was a fan of the movie. I never saw it on Showtime, I had to wait for syndication. And then it was hit and miss, and I don't think I saw too many in order either. I wasn't even aware the ship was an issue until it moved to SciFi and I saw more of the old eps, and then the new season started. I remember seeing the promo for season seven and the 'Grace' kiss was in it and my friend just about died. I told her I didn't know they were together and she informed me about all the angst and shippiness that I had somehow missed. I just didn't see those eps I guess. But I have become a big fan of the ship in the past year.

Welcome Ayiana. This is about one of the few threads that you can talk about the relationship (“ship”) between Sam and Jack. The good, the bad, and the ugly! In the past year and a half that I’ve been here we’ve gone up and down and back around regarding the ship. It’s a wonderful place to be able to be able to share your concerns, your rants, your highs and your lows with like-minded people. :)

Now in answer to your question… IMOHO we encompass every end of the S/J ship spectrum, from liking it a wee bit, to liking it a heck of a lot. For some it’s the sole reason they watch, for others, a very minor reason. For me, it wasn’t the S/J ship that got me hooked on the show. It was the ‘original’ team - their humor, the way they interacted with one another… I liked the stories, the SFX, the basic premise of the show… and the S/J ship was just the icing on my SG1 cupcake. :)

Thank you, I find out tomorrow which hospital I am going too! :eek: :D

I will, I will! :) I am all in a shippy mood so I am definitely ready for it. Last night I watched Grace! I love that episode… that kiss is just so great :) .

Oh and my thoughts are with everyone who were effected by the events that happened in London today too. I have only this minute just heard about it! I was out all day! :(

~Tracey~

Cool! I remember thelittlesis. That's so great.

Welcome in anticipation of your visit to London! I too am sure you will be okay :) I was on duty near to the The Oval where one of the incidents occured today, I couldn't believe it when the call came through, just too scary to think the events of a couple of weeks ago could happen again.

After my mad day at work it's so nice to come home and catch up on all the shippy gossip, and sounds like some good stuff about S9! ;) I haven't read the details so I'm gonna look at it through my rose tinted shipper glasses and pretend that its JACK THAT COMING BACK!! :p :p ok, indulge me my shipper friends it's been a long and scary day :)

As for shipper day....plans are a foot!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Hugs to all the shipper family

Hey Billie,

I've been lurking here for a couple of months now, getting a feel for the way things work, and I've finally decided to come out of hiding to say hello to everybody. I'm actually a transplant from the JAG fandom, and it feels a little strange to be venturing out with a new show - kind of like the first day at a new school when I was a kid. :)

I watched all 8 previous season of SG-1 within about 2 months. I'm thinking that puts me firmly in the category of the obsessed. I am, despite my determination not to get caught up in another ship, hopelessly addicted to the idea of Sam and Jack. You'd think I'd have learned my lesson from 9 agonizing years waiting for Harm and Mac to get together on JAG, but apparently not. I wonder if it's a genetic defect...

I already run a readers' choice archive for the JAG fandom, as well as a message board for fanfiction authors and my own website with my JAG fanfic, so I'm thinking I must be a little bit nuts to be adding something else to my hobby list. Unfortunately, my muse tends to ignore my kicking and screaming, and keeps sending SG-1 plot bunny after plot bunny to plague my dreams. In a futile attempt to get her to leave me alone, I've finally written my first SG-1 fic, "Issues," which is archived here at Gateworld and which brings me, finally, to my questions.

Can anybody recommend other places where I should publish my SG-1 fics? Are there any message boards out there where fics can be posted, or only archives and email lists? Are there any other places besides here at Gateworld where a lot of S/J shippers hang out? Any and all advice for the newbie is much appreciated. :)

Hey Ayianna, I love the name.

I used to post fanfiction on heliopolis.net if that is still the address. Hang on, I'll fetch it...

That is literally a stargate fanfic site.

I didn't start watching the show for the ship. I just love sci fi and was wondering how RDA would do in the role. I loved it from the get go. But eventually I noticed the thing was leaning towards the ship and I loved it even more! I can't see how anyone could like the last 2 weeks of whatever this was suppose to be. Daniel and Tea'k aren't even sounding or acting like themselves. Doen't help that is saw 'The Island' yesterday and that was just great SciFi!

I agree with Shimmering Star.

I started to watch the show because I like the team and the way they interacted, the Sam and Jack Ship came naturally of course. I must admit I do watch it for that, but it's not the only reason, it's a big reason, but not the only one.

I'm a science-fiction fan so I like others like Star Trek, Babylon 5, V, Lost in Space, The Outer Limits... the list is endless. So I like the scientific techno stuff and the special effects.

And the music...

Did I mention I like the ship....? :D

July 23rd, 2005, 03:55 PM
sg-1fanintn is absolutely correct in saying that SG-A is better than SG-1. It hurts me to say so since SG-1 is my first love. Still...I'm giving S9 a chance. Once AT gets back it's got to be better. I also have a hard time believing that she would stick with something that's on such rocky terrain. Also, Jack is back next week!!!
I haven't always thought it was better. SG-1 is my first love too. But right now, SGA is hotter, better paced and better written! Hurry back, Sam!


Third, I've been watching the posts here for several weeks, long before I actually joined, much less started posting myself, and I have a question. Do the majority of the people here watch SG-1 primarily for the S/J ship? Are there others, like me, who adore the ship but are quite content to watch the show for other reasons as well?

Just my humble opinion - my apologies if I've caused offense...

You can express almost any opinion here, as long as you do it politely, and it will be accepted/tolerated. We're such a nice group! As to your question, no, I don't watch SG-1 mainly for the ship. I love lots of sci-fi, and always have. In fact, when I first started watching the show, I liked the fact that Sam was a wholy formed character without any particular attachment to any of the men. Besides that, she didn't flaunt her sexuality through costuming or actions. She was smart, professional and had a lot of respect for herself. You see that so rarely on TV that it was really refreshing.

I also wasn't drawn to the show because of RDA. I never watched McGyver, and wasn't really a fan of his. I had just heard a lot about what a good sci-fi show it was, and hubby and I became fans.

Now, some six years later (We don't have Showtime, so we saw it first in syndication), my motivations for watching are the same.....and different. First, I am now a huge fan of RDA and AT. I really appreciate their talent, and after virtually ignoring him for 20 years, I now think he's one of the sexiest men on the planet! AT has just gotten prettier over the years, and I think she is one of the most gifted actresses I've ever seen. Even the subtlest nuances are understandable, because of the way she plays them.

And, the S/J ship has become extremely important to me. It has grown naturally and slowly, and these two actors have played it so well that they have convinced me that the characters truly belong together. I want my official resolution and acknowledgement of that!!!!!!

As I've said before, I'm not getting interested in any other ship dangled at me by TPTB. I'm interested in this one ship, because I believe it HAS TO BE that way. I can wait a little longer, but I can't accept these two people with anyone else.....because any resolution that doesn't include S/J together doesn't make sense with what I have witnessed over the past six years!

Whew! What a mouthful! Sorry if I went on too long, but that essay was just itching to get out!

But yes, with Jack came the S/J ship, and I loved it! Unlike you, although I do enjoy different aspects of Stargate, I don't think I'll be as content in season 9 without the ship. Let me rephrase that... I won't be content if there's no emotion between the main characters. I don't think it's the actual romance that captures my imagination, it's the emotion. And despite the teary moments relating to Teal'c and Daniel, one of the best sources for emotion and feelings in the show, for me, centres around Sam and Jack's relationship and predicament.

I do watch SG-1 for other reasons. The "fantasy" genre--the abnormal and unknown--sucks me in like a big whoppin' black hole. In addition, I love action and adventure and the fighting scenes. But to me the best episodes come as a package. Action/capture/adventure usually leads to angst/hurt/danger, which brings about comfort/reassurance/honesty, which in the case of Sam and Jack equals SHIP. These are episodes such as Upgrades, Message in a Bottle, Into the Fire, Solitudes, Metamorphosis, Heroes and Lost City.

What I'm trying to say is that without emotion the episodes with or without their fancy ships, unusual aliens and big shiny guns don't mean a thing. Threads and Grace to me are two of the best episodes they've made, merely because of how sentimental they are (and even more emotional was Abyss, which is my absolute favourite due to Jack's pain and Daniel's comforting presence). Even in Window of Opportunity, which was one of my most humorous TV moments ever, the best, most powerful scene involved Jack shouting that he'd "lost his son" and seeing the reactions play across the faces of the three other SG-1 members.

So yeah, I do watch Stargate for the ship--because to me it's one of the most prominent and central sources for emotion and feelings in the show. It's rich in angst (aren't I nice? :D). And whatever new dynamics they introduce to us in season nine, I somehow doubt they could ever replace the depth of our favourite pair's feelings for the other... Mitchell or no Mitchell as a newly-intergrated part of the team.

Anyway, folks, it's good to be back, once again indulging Sam and Jack shippiness! :D I have a lot in this thread to read! What's Avalon like?

I agree 1000%.I do not want to upset anyone but IMO the Daniel character is just not leading character material on this Show.The same goes for Teal'c.TPTB need to give something else besides the Jaffa rebellion to Teal'c.TPTB also need to lose the Mitchell flashbacks real quick.I was expecting to hear the Rocky theme during the Sword fight.I though the Jonas character worked well because he was not the instant Hero and had to gain respect.I never got the feeling Jonas was trying to replace Daniel.I think the Sam character has the ability to be the lead character and TPTB should have Daniel and Teal'c play off Sam as much as possible and not have Daniel or Teal'c go off on there own.I always though Daniel and Teal'c worked real well with Jack and Jack had the ability to keep the Daniel character from being way out there.


I agree with that SES ...I liked Jonas too because he had to prove himself ...but Cameron seems to be a heroe and we saw nothing of what he actually did on screen ..This is so lame ...it's probably because BB is more famous than CN !!!! :rolleyes: it makes me sick :rolleyes: :(


LONG LIVE JONAS . He was the best new regular added character to the SG1 show

I apologize for reposting my own post, but Nell and I are working on a project, and we need your opinion/decisions, so we can make our special surprise work for Ship Day. I hope most everyone will visit the thread by Sunday evening, so we can make a decision, and Nell can send invitations to some special guests on Monday.


Speaking of Ship Day, Nell and I are still working on our little project for that day, and to complete it, we need to be able to tell a few people what the name of the thread is going to be in advance (so they know what to look for), where it will be located and what time it will be available. I couldn't find Ship Nana, so I contacted Skydiver, and she said it would be fine for Nell or me to open the thread.

I'll be glad to open the thread, if that's ok with the rest of the family. Here's what I propose:

We Call It: 3rd Annual Sam/Jack Ship Day Thread

(Per Skydiver's suggestion, the first sentence of the first post will note that it is a temporary special event thread.)

We Put It: Under Characters & Relationships

We Open It: 12-midnight Eastern Daylight Time on Thursday, July 28

I'm just proposing this as a starting point. I realize that with so many Europeans in the family, 12-midnight Eastern Time doesn't mean much. So, I'm still looking for opinions on when it ought to open.

SueKay mentioned that in the past, the thread has been opened at midnight, Australian time. One more question: If it's midnight, the start of June 28th in New York, New York, what time is if in Australia? European time/date I can calculate, but I'm not sure about Australia!!!! Help!

Or, do we open it at Midnight Eastern Time, US?
How about Midnight London Time (That would be 7pm Eastern, I believe)?
Another Time Zone?

And we could even wait until 12-midnight Pacific Time to close it, if you all wish.....which would be more than 24 hours.

Or, we could pick a time zone and just go 24 hours from when July 28 arrives there.

I'm sorry to keep bothering you with all these decisions. But Nell and I are trying to create a nice surprise for the day, and we just kinda need to have this info in order to invite our special guests!

We made a decision on creating a separate thread in about 24 hours. Can we make this one that way too? Please weigh in with your opinion by lunchtime Saturday.....wherever you are!!!!

Nell and I thank you so much for your indulgence on this!

Hey Ayiana!

Don't worry - no offense caused.

For me? Ship is not the main draw...it's just the one that I talk about the most as I don't really fit in with the sciency types. I just feel that without Jack, the show's lost a certain 'oomph' and I feel qualitatively that the show's slowly going downhill...My favourite episodes aren't normally shippy, as long as they're good character-driven episodes. For instance...I love Daniel episodes and I love most of the Teal'c episodes...yet I cannot stand watching Grace...even for that kiss!!!

Me , I don't need to see ship ..or romantic ship to like an episode but I like to see the 2 main characters I love interact with each other ...as working partners or personal stuff... I don't mind ..whatever !!!! BUT it will never happen with Sam and Jack anymore on screen unless a miracle !!!!. They are my 2 main beloved characters of the show the same as Mac & Harm are in JAG . ...the same as Mulder & Scully are in x-files , the same as Kate & Jack are in Lost ...The same as Roxton & Marguerite are in the Lost world , the same as John Koening & Helena Russel were in space 1999 .
What I'm trying to say is the romantic aspect of the show drove me straight in the passion for the sci fi show not the other way round :)

With one of them gone or both of them gone ..the show is for me not so interesting ....I love sci-fi but only because they relate it to reality specially on the human aspect ....FEELINGS .
otherwise I would watch documentaries ...about Aliens /Aliens abductions .

I know everyone is entitled to there opinion but I'am shocked that so far more people are not upset about tonight episode.I had the same feeling about tonights epidose I had after watching Icon.I though it was pretty much a waste of an Hour.I just think some Fans love SG-1 and cannot bad mouth the Show.I will give the Show more time and when I think it's bad I'am going to continue to say so.I cannot wait to see the ratings on Monday.You can bet if the ratings are bad the spin will be no AT for the first 5 episodes and the Fans having to get used to the cast.TPTB will not even mention the RDA factor.TPTB and some of the Actors do n ot deserve a pass IMO because the way they talked up Season 9.

ses. I was a bit disappointed is Avalon 1 and 2. I'm giving the season a chance, kind of interested in the Orii, but..... Vala's death by fire scene was a bit much......and the many references to sex that Vala spouts off about are too My kids watch Stargate and they know the voilence is not real we have had many discussions about it.........but all the sexual inuendo (spelling???) and Vala's boobs I do not believe are all necessary. Now, mind you, I'm not a prude, but ......................
I know you gentlemen are probably loving the look of Vala, but am I the only one that feels this way? I wrote more and them deleted it...........off my soap box.

I'll just go dream about Sam and Jack and create what I want to see in my own mind. Night Shipper Family!!!

Oh, honey, it wasn't a command! It was a request. Do I sound like a Goa'uld to you? I hope not! Nell and I have hatched a plan for a surprise for Ship Day, and we just needed to know what the name of the thread is and when it would be started, etc., so we could invite some special guests.

Well, I don't mind if he...Avalon asks her out. He's kind of cute! But, the reason I want her to say no is because she is "in a relationship." To which Barrett replies, "So it's true!" :p

Nell, my thought are exactly the same, I did not like it, but I did not hate it, it was definitely different though in a way they are introducing a new enemey, a new world and doing that without Sam and Jack is strange, everything is different.

I really liked CM last week, this week we saw more of him and I can only say that he is really a good guy, but how he is unders certain situations, I don't know still to see...

Vala was OK, finally an episode where it was not all about sex with her.

Daniel I really loved in this ep, although he is still talking to fast!.

Still waiting to see next week's as Avalon II is a 2 parter in a 3 ep story development and well, Jack will be there, after that it's just 3 more ep until Sam come back :p
LOL!! Yup....could Daniel's words travel, they'd make it to Atlantis before the Daedalus...:P:D

First, good morning to everybody for whom it is still morning :)

Second, since there's a bit of an informal poll going, I too am a Girl Scout. I'm also the assistant leader for my daughter's junior/cadet troop - gold or silver award projects anyone?

Third, I've been watching the posts here for several weeks, long before I actually joined, much less started posting myself, and I have a question. Do the majority of the people here watch SG-1 primarily for the S/J ship? Are there others, like me, who adore the ship but are quite content to watch the show for other reasons as well? I'm curious because of the number of folks who seem to dislike any episode that doesn't have ship or at least S/J in it.

<snip>

Just my humble opinion - my apologies if I've caused offense...

I watched - when I did - for a few reasons, most of which would have to be Jack. IMO, this has always been Jack's story. And from the start, I fell for Jack and all his foibles and failings. And yes, the S/J became important to me, not just because I'm a shipper at heart (regardless of the show) but because it involved Jack. If it had been Daniel or Teal'c, I wouldn't have "shipped" nearly so hard.

That being said, it makes sense that now, in S9, I'd have lost interest in the show. That plus I really feel TPTB have treated the fans who are shippers badly, of course.

Daniel started out as an amusing character, and through S4, I liked him okay, although never got "into" the Danielcentric eps much. Then he turned a corner and became a character I not only couldn't stomach, but just wanted to see gone or SHUT UP! I think it was - again, going back to my view of Jack - his lack of respect for him and the command structure. Yes, Daniel was always running off against orders, but in the earlier seasons, it had an innocence about it. After S4, it was more like he was giving Jack the finger as he went off on his own. That being my view on it, it also makes sense that I have no desire to see a season dedicated to "the greatness that is Daniel." (Okay, another one, since S7 pretty much was this, too)

And while I like Teal'c fine, I don't think the character is strong enough to carry the show or even be front and center. Nothing against Chris or the character, but there's just something not . . . attention grabbing about the whole Jaffa thing. I can't really explain it.

Now, if they'd brought back Jonas this season, I confess, I might still be watching. This was a character I could really get interested in. He was interesting, passionate, and you could *care* about him and what he was going through. Not Jack, but between he and the rest, they might have managed better. But they also should have kept at least *some* things that were familiar. Coming up with four out of six and a half (i'm giving Sam/Amanda the half status, although I know it was more like 3/4), plus all new villains, was just biting off too much.

The one thing that *never* interested me with SG1 was the traditional sci-fi stuff. For me, it was always the character-driven parts that captured and held my interest. If I want to see people shooting at each other in space or weird-looking aliens, I can put SW or any of a zillion other movies into my DVD player. People's personal interaction - that's what captures my interest.

So the show lost Jack. And thereby, lost the S/J ship. Daniel became less likable. Jonas disappeared. Teal'c's storyline never captured me to begin with, and I don't care for shoot-em-ups. Given that as the state-of-being, there's not much on SG1 for me anymore.

All the above is just MO in response to Ayiana's post, and not intended to offend anybody.

Howdy, Ayiana!

I can't remember how long ago I started watching SG-1, but I was quite young--about 10/11, I think (and even then I loved the S/J romance :p). But I do remember that from the very first time I saw it I began to adore the character of Jack O'Neill. I won't lie when I say I've primarily watched the show for Jack. He makes me laugh and RDA is a wonderful actor. If it hadn't been for his face on screen, I probably would have watched it when I could be bothered, from time to time, but never with the, er, obsession and love that I have done for the past six years. ;) But there again I am going to watch season 9 when it hits the UK so it can't all be about him.

But yes, with Jack came the S/J ship, and I loved it! Unlike you, although I do enjoy different aspects of Stargate, I don't think I'll be as content in season 9 without the ship. Let me rephrase that... I won't be content if there's no emotion between the main characters. I don't think it's the actual romance that captures my imagination, it's the emotion. And despite the teary moments relating to Teal'c and Daniel, one of the best sources for emotion and feelings in the show, for me, centres around Sam and Jack's relationship and predicament.

I do watch SG-1 for other reasons. The "fantasy" genre--the abnormal and unknown--sucks me in like a big whoppin' black hole. In addition, I love action and adventure and the fighting scenes. But to me the best episodes come as a package. Action/capture/adventure usually leads to angst/hurt/danger, which brings about comfort/reassurance/honesty, which in the case of Sam and Jack equals SHIP. These are episodes such as Upgrades, Message in a Bottle, Into the Fire, Solitudes, Metamorphosis, Heroes and Lost City.

What I'm trying to say is that without emotion the episodes with or without their fancy ships, unusual aliens and big shiny guns don't mean a thing. Threads and Grace to me are two of the best episodes they've made, merely because of how sentimental they are (and even more emotional was Abyss, which is my absolute favourite due to Jack's pain and Daniel's comforting presence). Even in Window of Opportunity, which was one of my most humorous TV moments ever, the best, most powerful scene involved Jack shouting that he'd "lost his son" and seeing the reactions play across the faces of the three other SG-1 members.

This was a great post, Silver, and I agree with all of it. It occurred to me when reading the second to the last paragraph that a lot of us *do* watch just for the ship - but not just for Sam and Jack's romantic relationship, but for *ALL* the relationships - meaning the emotions - between the characters we know so well. That's the one part of the show that's been suffering this year and last.

Welcome Ayiana. This is about one of the few threads that you can talk about the relationship (“ship”) between Sam and Jack. The good, the bad, and the ugly! In the past year and a half that I’ve been here we’ve gone up and down and back around regarding the ship. It’s a wonderful place to be able to be able to share your concerns, your rants, your highs and your lows with like-minded people. :)

Now in answer to your question… IMOHO we encompass every end of the S/J ship spectrum, from liking it a wee bit, to liking it a heck of a lot. For some it’s the sole reason they watch, for others, a very minor reason. For me, it wasn’t the S/J ship that got me hooked on the show. It was the ‘original’ team - their humor, the way they interacted with one another… I liked the stories, the SFX, the basic premise of the show… and the S/J ship was just the icing on my SG1 cupcake. :)

(Oh – I think it was Shipperahoy (ShipMum), one of our wonderful GW mods, who you probably were looking for in your earlier post about thread-starting, not ShipNana) (Though it would be wonderful to see ShipNana again!)

The 2nd Annual Ship Day Thread (7/28/04) as Bev (dips of jazz) posted for anyone who is interested:
http://forum.gateworld.net/showthread.php?t=2698&highlight=annual+shipper


Here’s a blurb if you want it for the first post…. (Though you’ve probably already got something wonderful cooked up!:))

Happy 3rd Annual Ship Day!

Sam/Jack Ship Day started on GateWorld’s Forum to commemorate the first airing of Divide and Conquer (http://www.gateworld.net/sg1/s4/405.shtml)
5 years ago (originally airing in the U.S. on July 28, 2000). For many S/J Shippers this episode is a favorite for the confessions that Sam and Jack made to each other acknowledging the deeper feelings they held for one another.

This thread is for PRO-Sam/Jack Ship comments, opinions, pix, graphics, and celebration. Please do not post here if you do not like or are against this pairing. There are two threads for anti-sentiments or general discussion: ANTI-S/J Thread (http://forum.gateworld.net/showthread.php?t=314) and the SHIP Discussion Thread (http://forum.gateworld.net/showthread.php?t=88) should you wish to voice your opinion.

This celebration thread is open for 24 hours only.

Shimmering Star, thanks for the suggested text! I have copied and pasted it into a document on my desktop, so it will be readily available Wednesday night. You saved me some time and effort. Thanks so much! And yes, I'm working on a graphic.....although if someone else has something that should appear in the first post, that would be great! I'm not as advanced in creating all the layers some of you do in Photoshop (*makes note to work on that*). I just can't do some of the truly intricate things some of you do.

And Myrth, thanks for translating the time for me. I always get confused about the International Date Line!

So, shippers, do we attempt to have S/J Ship Day from the start of July 28th in Australia until the end of July 28th in Europe? That would be more than 24 hours.....but we are an international group.

Or, do we pick a time zone (such as Eastern Daylight Time in the U.S) and go 24 hours from there?

As I've said before, I'm not getting interested in any other ship dangled at me by TPTB. I'm interested in this one ship, because I believe it HAS TO BE that way. I can wait a little longer, but I can't accept these two people with anyone else.....because any resolution that doesn't include S/J together doesn't make sense with what I have witnessed over the past six years!

Wow SG-1fanintn, you've said it so nice and perfectly, I also think that my intrested on the ship at this point is it HAS TO BE Jack and Sam deserve to be together after all these years, TPTB owe it to them and tu us :p

I think that's enough! That's great, I'm foreign language stupid, wish I could speak one other but pretty good understanding somethings in Italian and Spanish. Just be aware that the Convention atmosphere is not always shippy. That's why we like to meet up with shippers. We watch each others sixes. I found out the hard way last year.
Trupi, thanks for watching my six :D I guess there won't be any ship in the CON, all guys and not interested in it, I've read so far that MS and CJ don't give their opinion regarding the ship, but it will still be nice to be there.

For ship we need to go to a CON with Amanda, maybe London :D

Anybody else going to the CON in New Jersey? 3 shippers on the list so far, Shimmering, Trupi and myself, we'll be watching your sixes :p

Incidentally, for Ship Day I will try to post an occasional picture story and I encourage you, too, because you are sooooo good at this!!!! ;)

Thanks nell, fellow pic story legend!! :D Feel free to snurch away!
I do have piccy plans afoot for ship day *she says with a cheeky glint in her eye!!*...can't wait!! :p

Sorry, I haven't been here for a while but I'll be here on Ship Day, that's sure ! :D

Okay, to make it short...

Welcome to newbies ! I hope you'll have as much fun in this thread as I have had since I joined the Ship Family !

Congrats on 400 nell and LOL4JACK ! And any other milestones I could have missed.

As for Ship Day, when and how much time it should be, here's my opinion : if we have to make it a 24 hour event, let's do it on US timezone.
I'm working so I won't be able to join you the 1st night (European time), probably not much during the day (although I'll probably be able to take some time at work to have a look at GW ;) ), but I'll be here after work until... very late ! :p (it doesn't matter if I'm tired at work the next day, it will be my last work day before holidays ! :D )
What I'm trying to say is that with US timezone, everyone can be here at some time, whether they are in Australia, Europe or America (at least I think... these timezones get me a bit confused ! :p)

*grumbles*

Am I the only one that had to be mentally bludgeoned with WoO and D&C before I realized there was S/J ship?



Ohhh no, don't be silly! One of the first episodes I watched (as an 11/12 year old) was Solitudes and for a while I didn't see the S/J interaction as shippy... I just enjoyed the friendship between them and the care they had to give. :) I think the first episode I watched where I thought 'Oooh, they look like they have strong personal feelings for each other' was Into the Fire. But bear in mind that my mind has long since been corrupted... :D

That was probably the doing of Divide and Conquer! And now I see anything S/J as shippy! But I'm not complaining! :D

sueKay
July 24th, 2005, 03:43 AM
Hello!!!!

After reading the Daniel comments, I have to add my tuppence worth.

I stayed over at Mishy's last night for a Stargat Marathon (Mishy's a shipper family member, but she hasn't been on in a while)

While we watched the one where Sam blows up the sun (I'd never seen it before!) I mentioned how I didn't like Daniel anymore. She agreed...Daniel was AWESOME in season one and two. He was okay in three, four and five...when he came back in season seven...He was barely watchable...as a result...the J/D relationship suffered and to be honest...the J/D friendship is a bigger draw for me than S/J ship. And that drive is gone for me now.

As for Teal'c...I agree..the rebellion is smothering his character and Assinity was just a humiliation for him. I loved seeing teal'c adjust to be more than the show's 'token' Jaffa. For instance, the scene in cold Lazarus where he watches the TV is CLASSIC! As is the Season four Fishing Scene where Teal'c remarks:

"We have caught nothing. We are fishing."

LOL

THAT'S what this show is lacking. I do think the show can succeed without Jack and Sam as Daniel has a massive fanbase and most people love Teal'c. But they need to get back to what both of those actors are good at...not just giving them some P90s and hoping for the best. They also need to look back in order to look forward. They can't just erase the fisr eight seasons...they can learn a lot by look at the mistakes *cough cough* Pete *cough cough* Anise *cough cough* plot holes *cough cough* they made...seems to me they are repearing those mistakes once more.

Mitchell - my nice guy...just like they tried to make Pete.
Vala - oversexed and underdressed...she's even more bimbo-esque than Anise.
Flashbacks - just plain bad writing!

Okay...mini rant over...but you get the idea!

((((((((nell and sg-1fanintn)))))))))))

Here's a little shippy moment that I found while mooching through the transcripts

It's from S7 space race so will put it in spoilers just in case


O'NEILL: "T ... you comin'?"
TEAL'C: "Major Carter has requested that I remain so that I may assist her."
Both Sam and Jack look surprised. Teal'c smiles. Then simultaneously, they respond.
O'NEILL: "She did?"
CARTER: "I did?"
TEAL'C: "Indeed."
CARTER: "Right ... yes, thank you."
Sam smiles.
TEAL'C: "I do not wish to disappoint Major Carter."
O'NEILL: "Yes ... I know the feeling."
WARRICK: "Shall we?"
O'NEILL: (reluctantly) "Stay in touch."


Hee hee and ..... Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! ;)

I also found this which made me think of the discussions that we had regarding S9 opener Avalon

Now why couldn't Jack have seen Sam dressed like this.........!!!!!!! :p ;)

Hi Billie! **waves back**
Thanks for sharing! Space Race is one of those episodes that to me wasn't great like Divide and Conquer or Grace or WoO so I tend to overlook it and not watch it ever again. What a mistake because I missed little moments like that. **slaps forehead**

and every time they did something I was thinking "ooh Jack would never have done that" or "Jack would kick his ass for that"...I miss Jack! :(

Someone on either the S9-Avalon thread or JM's, don't remember which, gushed, " This was the best ever!" talking about Avalon. How many seasons had he/she watched FCOL! Any? People like different things so if that fan liked Avalon that's one thing, but the "best" ever. Hard to fathom.

Agree with much of your analysis.

Cool, I'll tell her you said hey! :)

Aaaww thanks hun! And I found out where I am going and I am happy 'cos it was where I wanted to go for my 1st placement. I am going to Birmingham’s children's hospital! :)

Yeah me too! Great idea...it's a shame the kiss isn't real, or that we have not gotten a real kiss like that! :(... But there is always hope, or is that just wishful thinking???

~Tracey~

YAY. Definently, tell her to watch her back 'cause you never know when that custard bucket could appear. :D :P

Congratulations

On your placement, it sounds fun and I hope you enjoy it. What a fantastic place to start!

It's not wishful thinking ;) I know it will happen

Hi Billie! **waves back**
Thanks for sharing! Space Race is one of those episodes that to me wasn't great like Divide and Conquer or Grace or WoO so I tend to overlook it and not watch it ever again. What a mistake because I missed little moments like that. **slaps forehead**

Now that picture of Sam!!! Jack didn't see her dressed like that in Space Race? Where was he? OK, there's a future picture story with this!! Hee, hee!! ;)

I just love little shippy, flirty comments like that!! Like in S8 'Citizen Joe': Towards the end of the episode, when Joe is in the SGC infirmary, and him and Jack are discussing the whole 'Burns as Goa'uld' theory. Joe says, "And don't worry, I won't say anything about your feelings for..." and then Sam walks in and Jack does the whole shushing thing. I thought that was great!! :D (or at least words to that effect)

Aaaawww :o thanks hun! :) Yeah it is a great place to start. I am on ward 8, which is a liver ward. I am scared but excited at the same time. I start 22nd August for 6 weeks, and then I am back at uni!

How about the Broca Divide kiss? Not just the fact that "primitive Sam" kisses Jack, but that HE sneaks in a quick one on her neck as he drags her off to the infirmary. THAT, IMO, was the shippy part, along with his answer to her "do you want me" question: "Not like this!" He didn't just say "no." Shippy, shippy, shippy! :p

Oh, and one other thing: Is the "Out of Mind hug" when Jack grabs Sam from behind and covers her mouth to stop her from shouting? Does that count as a hug, or just a "moment?" :S

Me, too! Up until that scene in Citizen Joe I wasn't so sure what Jack's feelings were regarding Sam. When Joe made his comment to Jack and Jack acknowledged him, I was so happy!! Not to mention when Joe went on to say to Sam, "about this Pete Shanahan thing..." and Jack stopped him. That was priceless! Then we knew what had been on Jack's mind about :eek: !!! Jealousy?!

While we're talking about the Ship.....

Round 36 of the Fave Episodes Tournament has begun. Family was eliminated in Round 35.

Divide & Conquer (the holy grail of J/S shippiness) is now #4 from the top, which means it’s very close to being eliminated!

You can make a difference!. Please go vote against some other eps, and help push Divide & Conquer down the list, into safer territory! Catch up on the tourney (and which eps have been eliminated so far) here: http://forum.gateworld.net/showthread.php?t=12889&page=84&pp=20

Be careful! If you accidentally vote for an ep that has already been eliminated, none of your votes will count in that round.

i can't say that there was anything great about the episode but...for whatever reason i didn't hate it-and i wanted to-i think that there were some really touching scenes-from my perspective when Daniel saw they were going to actulaly burn Vala alive-his anguish was very palpable. and you could almost feel the pain when he went to her after the Ori representative blew the flames away. I honestly didn't think that MS had it in him to play a scene with that much emotion. And the embrace between them after she was healed was just so touching. I didn't think that MS had that much emotional presence-I knew CB had it-but I had never seen MS put that much into a scene like that. Landry is straddling between George and Jack-and I think he has the b%lls to do it too and i have a personal prejudice-I like BB and I had always thought that if they did a recast of Jack's character-I would want him to play it. I will however still take a one episode at a time view of this show-and certainly-I am interested in what they will do to Sam. After the Cr*p we had the last two years and the horrible way they wrote Sam-I am still not interested in buying what they are selling.

S9 Avalon Pt.2
I agree. I neither hated it a great deal nor loved it a whole bunch. I think the scene you just described was when my interest perked up, when Vala was being burned. That scene made up for the un-SG1-like sword fight at the beginning and the other unbelievable parts of the episode (like the new doctor declaring V dead on the SGC end and walking out? I mean Daniel’s wellbeing still required V. be alive! Get her heart pumping and stick her on life support dang it! But to walk out??!). At that point I thought to myself – okay here’s where they could turn Vala into a less tart-like character and give her a decent ship with Danny and I could stand it and maybe get into it based on that scene. At least that’s what I thought until I saw the ‘to be continued’ at the end of the show - then I remembered that these are TPTB that can’t write ship no matter which character it is….

<snip>
‘Course I loved the scene later when Jack and Daniel are in the control room and Daniel asks how Sam is doing and Jack tells him “She's not yours to care about” and “I'm talking about Samantha, you just stay away from her, okay?” Then he punches the daylights out of Daniel!

I don’t consider it a “real” kiss between ‘our’ Sam & Jack. (Just MOHO :) ) The closest Jack came was during kissing Dr. Carter in POV and ‘his’ Sam in WoO. Unfortunately the time loops erased ‘our’ Sam’s memory of WoO. BUT… she did get to watch herself kissing Jack in POV from the other side of the quantum mirror…. It gave her a heck of a lot to think about there….. (And while we didn’t get to see it, but S&J did remember *all* that they did while they were ‘mindstamped’ in Beneath the Surface…)

But back to BD… Yes… they were under an alien influence at the time… but… ;) one could say the virus was kind of like alcohol in loosening the lips and their repressed feelings! :D

Hello!!!!

After reading the Daniel comments, I have to add my tuppence worth.

I stayed over at Mishy's last night for a Stargat Marathon (Mishy's a shipper family member, but she hasn't been on in a while)

While we watched the one where Sam blows up the sun (I'd never seen it before!) I mentioned how I didn't like Daniel anymore. She agreed...Daniel was AWESOME in season one and two. He was okay in three, four and five...when he came back in season seven...He was barely watchable...as a result...the J/D relationship suffered and to be honest...the J/D friendship is a bigger draw for me than S/J ship. And that drive is gone for me now.

As for Teal'c...I agree..the rebellion is smothering his character and Assinity was just a humiliation for him. I loved seeing teal'c adjust to be more than the show's 'token' Jaffa. For instance, the scene in cold Lazarus where he watches the TV is CLASSIC! As is the Season four Fishing Scene where Teal'c remarks:

"We have caught nothing. We are fishing."

LOL

THAT'S what this show is lacking. I do think the show can succeed without Jack and Sam as Daniel has a massive fanbase and most people love Teal'c. But they need to get back to what both of those actors are good at...not just giving them some P90s and hoping for the best. They also need to look back in order to look forward. They can't just erase the fisr eight seasons...they can learn a lot by look at the mistakes *cough cough* Pete *cough cough* Anise *cough cough* plot holes *cough cough* they made...seems to me they are repearing those mistakes once more.

Mitchell - my nice guy...just like they tried to make Pete.
Vala - oversexed and underdressed...she's even more bimbo-esque than Anise.
Flashbacks - just plain bad writing!

Okay...mini rant over...but you get the idea!
I did like that cold lazarus scene....

Hammond asks for T's staff weapon

Teal'c: I have seen your world...I will need it.

LOL!!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D

Morning all! :)

Oh how I love driving home after a night shift passing all the 9-5ers heading off to work at the start of their week. Then getting home and sitting at my computer catching up on what the lovely shipper family have been chatting about whilst sipping a glass of chilled Chardonnay before bed....and I'm now on four days off....ah life is good!!! :D

Must say though, drinking a glass of wine at 7.30 in the morning is a tad bizarre!! Helps me sleep....honest! :rolleyes:

LOL4JACK - regarding the polls for shipper day. How about the Solitudes snuggle? Does that count as a hug (or snug!) or is it more for poll 2? You see how indecisive I get after one glass of wine....goodness knows what I'll be like on ship day!! :p

Yeah, were they watching the same ep I was? Avalon 2 was ok, but nothing great. Ses, I think its the Daniel fans. They must be loving the fact he is the main attraction right now. I was glad that Vala had toned it down some and we did only see one flash back. I wished MS would slow down, he is talking way too fast. How about the new doctor? All of a sudden there is a new doctor and she has some sort of relationship with the new CO. But no introduction or explaination. Same with Jack, he's gone but no explaination. It will be interesting to see what the ratings are. I am counting down to Beachhead.

that is not the only issue-as Rogue and I discussed is also the the jerking of jack (please forgive the pun-or not)-consider: Jack not telling Mitchell that SG-1 has disbanded: Jack not telling Landry that his daughter would be the CMO;not telling the CMO that her father was in charge of the base. according to Landry-jack is "funny like that"? excuse me! Mr. I don't like surprises-surprising people.-i don't think so. Last two years they got on Sam and basically tried to ruin her reputation-doing the same now for Jack???

Yeah, were they watching the same ep I was? Avalon 2 was ok, but nothing great. Ses, I think its the Daniel fans. They must be loving the fact he is the main attraction right now. I was glad that Vala had toned it down some and we did only see one flash back. I wished MS would slow down, he is talking way too fast. How about the new doctor? All of a sudden there is a new doctor and she has some sort of relationship with the new CO. But no introduction or explaination. Same with Jack, he's gone but no explaination. It will be interesting to see what the ratings are. I am counting down to Beachhead.
The group that liked Avalon 2 all went to MS school- - You heard the school of speed reading-well they went to the school of auctioneers. The idea is if you say your lines quickly they we'll give you more to speak than any other character. Soon he will be like those aliens on the old Star Trek where they talked so fast they sounded like insects. Buzz-Buzz-buzz-iszz That is good morning in Daniel talk! :D

either that or he was afraid he would forget his lines. Okay- i know that was mean-but frankly-i sure would like to know what he says becuz using closed caption is such a bore.

My poor mother thought it was her because she couldn't understand a thing he was saying. She thought she ws going deaf. What is bizarre is that MS has been told that he is speeding his lines up and he said we were crazy! Maybe I should make a short recording of Avalon and bring it to the con. in August. When MS comes up, play it and ask for a translation!

Or it could be the director telling him to talk faster because he is taking valuable camera time away from Vala's boobs!

No one is talking about MS's wife playing the Dr. and Lawdry's daughter! I can't believe its easy to be on a set and watch your husband kiss or get woman-handel by another actress. That must be weird! She looks like a tough cookie but I don't think~ she has much to worry from Claudia. Is Claudia Black much older then MS and BB?

Morning all! :)

Oh how I love driving home after a night shift passing all the 9-5ers heading off to work at the start of their week. Then getting home and sitting at my computer catching up on what the lovely shipper family have been chatting about whilst sipping a glass of chilled Chardonnay before bed....and I'm now on four days off....ah life is good!!! :D

Must say though, drinking a glass of wine at 7.30 in the morning is a tad bizarre!! Helps me sleep....honest! :rolleyes:

LOL4JACK - regarding the polls for shipper day. How about the Solitudes snuggle? Does that count as a hug (or snug!) or is it more for poll 2? You see how indecisive I get after one glass of wine....goodness knows what I'll be like on ship day!! :p


ONLY 4 DAYS TO GO!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Billie, I will include it in Poll 1, becuase it's a hug with a head on shoulder :p :p :p although offically I consider it SPOONING :D

Now to something completely dirrerent! What about the scene in "Entity" after he shoots Sam and he just looking at her in the bed and Fraizer tells him that Sam has no brain waves and should be disconnected from the ventalator and he says not yet- just a few more minutes!!!! I think that is a great shippy scene! Thank G-- he had feelings for Sam or she would have become like KIT in "Knight Rider"-talking from a computer for the rest of her life! That would ended the ship real fast! Jack making out with a monitor?~~~~~~~~~~~~

That's it Sam and Jack can have phone and Cyber-sex. RDA doesn't need to be there and AT can have just a great time! The way S9 is going TPTB might like our ideas! Sorry guys we want romance not porn. (Maybe a little Porn but more romance) :)

Rogue I think you right about the Daniel Fans.I did not hate Avalon 2 either.I just think the Show does no work when the Daniel character is the lead character.I just think some Actors and characters are able to be the Leads and other Actors and characters are better suited in a supporting role.It's nothing against the Actors it's just the way it is.IMO Jack brings so much more to the Show than Daniel.I also think when TPTB and some of the Actors talk up Season 9 like it's the best ever the episodes better be great and IMO there not even that good.Regarding Dr.Lam I going to have a real problem if Lam and Mitchell are an item.Sam and Jack could not even stand close to each other without some Fans flipping out.I also do not think it's a good idea to have Lam be Laundry's Daughter.To be fair I think things will improve when AT comes back.

Hello shippers!

I've had a thought in my mind, and I'm going to air it.

Now...I've not seen Avalon, but I get the sense that the audience is not privy to something big that's happened, and that we'll find out in the future. Here's why I'm saying this.

1. Teal'c seems to me as not having much of a problem going back ot the Jaffa, despite looking very concerned about leaving the SGC in Reckoning.
2. Daniel is reluctant to go back on SG1 and can't wait to leave to go to Atlantis...and REALLY doesn't want to be a part of the SGC.
3. Sam says she 'has her reasons' for not returning to the SGC, and when she returns, she'll have mixed emotions.
4. Hammond's retired from the Air Force, but is still working at the Pentagon...I think if Hammond really wanted to retire, he'd have retired from working life altogether, not just switched to a civilian position.
5. Jack seems to have dissappeared off of the face of the planet, and has moved...then suddenly he's offered Hammond's job...

me thinks something bad happened that caused Jack to quit the military, and that Hayes had to do something to get him back to the military...It stands to reason that whatever happened also affected SG1, hence their reluctance...

If I'm wrong then sorry, because I've not seen the ep...but this is a hunch that has yet to go away.

Positively evil! And by all accounts accurate :p

I won't be seeing it until October, but I've read all the threads so I can steel myself for what's coming ;)

I hope sueKay's right in that we will get some explanation on screen at some point in the season - it's hardly fair to all those die hard fans out there who don't have internet access to have no idea what happened to Avalon Jack, the disbanding of SG-1 etc .... If they made it all part of a scandalous storyline (I'm thinking Elopement here :D :p ) so much the better. I'm really impatient to see it.

My hubby went to get me some A&W today (3 cases to satisfy my rootbeer craving :D ) from this import place we know and brought me back an extra special present I've never tried before - a huge box of Fruit Loops :p

I'm gonna have to eat the first bowl watching WoO! Then I'll finally be able to offer an opinion on the great fruit loop debate - yummy or yucky. :p Watch this space ....

Ben's wife had a part in the Farscape mini-series--I suppose one gets used to it when married to an actor-actress and/or being one yourself. Hope this question isn't out of line, but does anyone else think LD and V. Bandera resemble each other a bit, which I find intriguing.

I was looking through Season 8 episode summary on gateworld.net, accompanied with pictures, and I cam across one with Jack in a singlet and boxers on a bed with...no not Sam :(...but Kerry Johnson in a revealing neglige.

Is this a publicity shot? Or a deleted scene?

note - you need to use spoiler tags - do this [ spoil] without the space between the bracket and the s, and then [ /spoil] without the space between the bracket and the slash. Put your text in between the two tags, then post and it should look something like -
