Hard to believe there isn't such a thread yet. Anyway, here it is.

Played by the talented Julia Benson (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1365460), Vanessa James was a 2nd Lieutenant stationed at Icarus Base. After Icarus was attacked, she and most of the base personnel escaped through the local Stargate onto the Ancient vessel Destiny. Vanessa is now one of several people trapped aboard the ship, which takes its passengers on a preset journey across the universe. Prior to being stranded on Destiny, Vanessa had a romantic relationship with Lt. Matthew Scott. As one of the few military officers on board Destiny, she is often called upon to lead away teams and maintain the order. She is also known for offering the Kinos excellent views.

Hopefully, Lt. James will be given more screen time as the show progresses. Maybe one or two episodes centered around her without getting the character killed? :D

Carry on.

She's one of my most fave secondary character in SG history. :) Right next to Lisa Park. ;)

I really hope they keep this character around.

James is quickly becoming my favorite secondary character in Stargate. Closing it up with Zelenka, Lorne, Siler, Walter, and Riley. I just hope she gets better luck with men, so far ones dumped her for the first girl he sees while the other voluntarily exiled himself to another planet.

Is it just me or does James seem to have an unhealthy fixation on Colonel Young? Not in any romantic sense, but she seems to need his approval and an indication that he values her contribution instead of "being stuck with her".

Young goes around treating Scott and Greer like surrogate sons and TJ... well you know. James probably would like Young to treat her like he would treat the others. I mean they've probably known each other all the same amount. She seems to see Young as a surrogate father even if he doesn't see her as a daughter. Not to mention the fact that Young does seem to have some issue with her. The talk he and TJ were having made me really think that Young would rather not have James with them.

Young/TJ aside, there are still regulations against this, aren't there?

Honestly, I love James as a charecter because she vascillates between tough as nails and vulnerable depending on whether or not anyone is watching.

One of the things that shocked me was the chemistry between David and Julia. I'm not saying Wallace/James need to hook up (although as I've said before, I could find this extremely funny and dramatically interesting) but every time they're both talking, it's usually pretty interesting. The actors play off of each other VERY well either being awkward or suggestive or amused.

I'm just saying, David Blue + Julia Benson = gold. I'm not going to defend Wallace/James shipping until I see a bit more of both charecters though.

Couldn't appreciate her more if i tried.

Big fan of the character and the actress.

Not sure if i'm entirely objective though. If i had a type, it's her. To a tee.

Here's hoping they bump her up to regular status at some point. I want entire episodes devoted to Lt James.

I wouldn't mind that either. Bringing her to the forefront from Justice onwards has been great. Julia's pretty great at playing the more vulnerable side of James.

She has the best natural chest on all of TV. She seems like a good actress, but I havn't seen her much. She gets naked in some horror movie, thats the only other thing I saw her in.

She seems like the typical TV woman- fighting over a man that wants someone else.

I like this aspect of the character. She is flawed and human, and gorgeous, and that is why we like her. I also like how she cans it all up, and hides it well, but you know it grates on her. Benson is just doing great in the role. I really believe that she is all army, all the time. She does the whole regimented life of discipline much better than the Greer character, which would explain why she has made officer, and he is still among the ranks of the enlisted. I don't know how he even ever made sgt.

Her competition was Jenifer Spence(Lisa Park) It was a win-win for SGU. But the fact that SGU got both nominations speaks volumes to both actresses quality.

Apparently Julia Benson got a chair with her name on like Patrick Gilmore got. Hopefully thats a sign she'll be staying on for quite some time.

Eli isn't capable of lying. Look at the trouble he had talking with Rush in Divided while trying to keep him from putting the shields up. And he's stated before that he's manually put Kinos into seach modes before, and I'm assuming that this was one of those cases.

Okay the first time Riley may have been in the drivers seat but Eli gave him the keys and stayed in the passenger seat. :P

And if the kino was in search mode why wasn't it searching? It was just sitting stationary in perfect view of the showers. And we know Riley has a difficult time using the kinos so that leaves Eli as the only suspect left.

Very interesting comments from Joeseph Mallozzi's June 14th weblog. When asked why James wasn't seen with the other military personel after she and all the military personel surrendered he said.

"James wasn't captured"

Again, incorrect. Joe was mistaken, as he said in the comments of that one:

Oops. Thought you were referring to the hostage scenario in Incursion I.

Yep, she’s been captured – along with everyone but Eli, Chloe, Rush, and Brody. And Scott and Greer topside, about to get fried.

erm ... not quite sure what you mean by SG1/SGA format. :confused: :)

However, yes, I think she can and should get better character development. Something that identifies her better than having been dumped rather cruelly by Scott or the fact that she's in the military. :)

SGA gave Dr. Lee World of Warcraft and Lorne painting. Give these characters hobbies other than waiting around for the next collosal disaster that will destroy the ship. I mean form a choir, theater group, sports team, or something. Anything is better than the current: wake - exercise -nearly die - sleep. Young definitely needs to get a morale officer for Destiny.

Well after watching the 1.5 DVD exclusive KINOsodes James better get a better deal in season 2. She's got a dreary rainy cloud of sadness hovering over her the likes I've not seen since the one that was over Cyclops in the X-Men movies. I mean giver her one day where things go well for her. Though the way things currently are for her if she gets a boyfriend he'll be horribly killed by something that was her fault.

Between her and Riley getting his head injured every single moment he's on screen I'm wondering how many ladders they've walked under or how many black cats they've been exposed to.

She is still not over Lt. Scott who acts like nothing ever happened between them destroying any chance of closure for her. She has to deal with an obsession to constantly try to earn Col. Young's approval. She has to deal with being stuck on Destiny and unable to be with her family except with the stones, which she says makes things worse. Honestly she has a lot more character issues than some of the main cast. She definitely has enough characterization to not be 'the girl with big breasts'.

I honestly think some people are just looking at her and assuming she's just on Destiny as 'Miss Male Fanservice' and ignoring any of her characterization. You can't judge a character by looks, simply because someone has great physical features doesn't mean that's the only reason their character exists.

Well she still has feelings for Matt yes, hopefully she finally gets over him in S2. And in Pain, would you want to say in front of Chloe that you were having hallucinatory sex with her boyfriend and then murdering him? ;) That would be rather awkward for their friendship. Also I'm not even sure if Chloe even knows that James and Scott were an item.

She hasn't really shown any signs of knowing about them. She has never shown any concern about Scott's old ex still being in contact with him every day, unless Chloe has no jealousy issues, which I doubt she should have mentioned something about that if she knew. She's never been uncomfortable around James the same way James was uncomfortable around her early on. And since the whole Scott/James thing was supposed to be kept quiet it's doubtful someone would have told her. Either Scott would tell her, or James would. And both of them probably won't tell Chloe.

Scott won't either because he never felt he and James were an item to begin with, or because telling your new girlfiend that his your old girlfriend is living 2 rooms down probably would cause some relationship issues.

And James most likely won't tell Chloe because it should be Scott's responsibility and if he hasn't she won't overstep him. And she probably doesn't want to make it complicated between her and Chloe since they've been getting closer towards the end of the season.

Yeah I forgot all about that in Earth. If Chloe would do that then I'm pretty sure she would have made sure to mark her territory around Scott every time James walked by. Though I am interested to see Chloe finally find out and see what happens, I'm guessing it will be very bad for Scott.

Yeah thats one of the main reasons I think that Chloe has no idea about Scott/James. James wouldn't want to ruin one of her only chances for a female friend by bringing it up to her, and Chloe would definitely not be acting so friendly if she new Scott was doing James they day before he started doing her. That said if/when Chloe ever finds out I'm betting James is going to get some major sympathy from Chloe when she finds out how Scott treated her. It will be a very bad time for Scott I think.
