Another week, another slew of moments and quotes and Telford badassery moments. Good times have been had...


First off, the entire TJ/Simeon interchange in the infirmary. You go girl.

TJ: "You think you could handle me?"
*Simeon pisses himself*


Scott and Greer's epic conversation.
Greer: "You remember that hamstring injury I got from squats?"
Scott: "Yeah."
Greer: "It wasn't squats."


Ginn the excitable little geek jumping at the chance to play with Ancient tech. Not cool to shut her down like that, Young!


TJ/Varro conversation.


Scott offering the food to the alien, and the conversation that proceeded it between Volker, Brody and Greer (Will add transcript later).


Telford sacrificing himself - Telford throughout the whole episode, in fact. Loved his little ending.

I loved him in this episode.

Destiny docking with the seeder ship. And Brody giving Young another bottle of alcohol.

I'm paraphrasing0

Varro: When can we help out?
Young: When I know I can trust you.
Varro: How do we do that?
Young: I don't think you can.

Telford: Take care of those people....and Evertt....take of yourself.

Finally I like hallucination-Gloria questions the reason Rush removed Destiny from the Seeder ship

Eli: Hey, am I reading this right?
Rush: If you have to ask, my guess would be 'no'.

Young: Where are you going?
Rush: The bathroom. Is that alright?

The first shorty alien fainting when seeing Volker. I laughed so hard at that part. The alien was probably more terrified than Volker!

The final shot in the episode of Rush sitting in the captain's chair during the musical montage.

The musical montage song!

This episode had the most favorite moments for me in any episode so far. I'm REALLY loving SGU right now. I mean, I loved early 1.0 and it's drastic change in style from previous Stargate, but now they've perfectly blended it with classic Stargate but it still feels new. It's dark, it's fresh, but it's also funny, and about exploration and adventure.

I loved him in this episode.
Yes i loved that - how do you shoot down someone saying that. Young had junior officers around so I saw it as saving face - if he'd said no he would have SPLODED! It was good that Telford didn't mention Emily at all.

The dried fruit bit was funny especially when Greer has problems pronouncing 'longan' in front of an alien - it would seem he can't speak his own language - just saying!

I think you got them all. that was such a great episode! The look on Volkar's face when he saw the alien and then his look after the alien fainted! Best first contact in any SG episode!

Telford sacrificing himself - Telford throughout the whole episode, in fact. Loved his little ending.

Most of these would be my favorite moments, too. And adding the bit where the alien spit out the food Scott offered it. I laughed out loud at that bit. And the alien passing out when Volker spoke to it.

Loved the TJ/Simeon scene. I actually clapped my hands and cheered when she shut him down. :D

The scene at the beginning between Young and Rush - Young definitely knows that Rush is hiding something, and probably wanted to follow him to see where he was really going to instead of the bathroom.:)

I genuinely liked Telford in this episode. And IMO, he'll be back at some point. I liked the scene at the end with the aliens converging on Telford. Until shown otherwise, I'm leaning toward them not being hostile, and are simply very curious about him.

I thought the scene where Camille and Greer were cleaning out Riley's room was rather touching. Especially since Camille seemed sympathetic towards Greer and patted him on the back as they left the room. Wasn't that long ago they were at each other's throats.

I found it interesting that this other ship had so many narrow corridors that were only about one person wide, instead of the wide corridors the Destiny has.

I laughed out loud when Scott and Greer took Rush to the room where the stargate's were put together and the music swelled like it was this big dramatic moment and Rush was like "are we done?" The looks on Scott and Greer's faces were priceless.

And I loved seeing TJ put the Lucien Alliance guy in his place.

The scene with TJ and Simeon - TJ is now officially badass! :D
The Stargate factory - It was just a short scene, but it was very interesting to see.
The aliens - especially the scene where Scott gives one of them food :) I wonder if we will see them again and what they are doing aboard the Seed ship.
Lucian Alliance - Learning more about Varro, Ginn's small appearance showing her curiosity and Simeon going stir crazy - They really are becoming more fleshed out with each episode.
The ending with Telford being left behind - I really enjoy SGU's style of not having a deus ex machina at end of the episode to resolve everything and return to the status quo.

Eli: We're gonna hit it.
Rush: No, no, we're not gonna hit it, we're going to dock with it.

Volker: You might wanna...come back to the control room.
Scott: You find something interesting?
Volker: Well...yeah, actually, something interesting found me.

YOUNG: " any other predictions"
RUSH: " Shortly, you're gonna assemble a team to check it out " *walks away*


YOUNG: " where's rush"
Scott:" he just.... he just disappeared sir"

Mine would have to be:


Greer: Park.

Scott: Park?

Greer: Remember that hamstring injury I said I got doing squats?

Scott: Yeah?

Greer: It wasn't doing squats...

It's already been mentioned, but Telford's line:
"I'm tired of waiting on the sidelines - put me in, coach."

And also, the fainting alien. Because she/he/it reacted the way you would when confronted with a big weird looking alien on the ship you thought was empty except for the rest of your small brown cool-vest-wearing science team.

I loved wrays little smirk she seemed to have just after Rush said that to young then walked off in the beginning.

Everything about Telford was awesome. This episode was so incredible that I didn't have a favorite moment.

Teford's farewell sentiment to Young, where he tells him to take care of the people and himself. It seems to show how even during , what e believes, is his last contact with Team Destiny, he s more concerned about the future of the crew and is willing to accept that he lost trying to send them back to earth, as long as Young can take a greater step ahead as leader of the crew to ensure that they remain as a stable group.

I think his comment to Young shows that there must have been a strong friendship between the two and that there are still sparkles of it left

Obviously sleeping with your friend's wife is forgivable if you've been brainwashed - I'll keep this excuse in my inventory!

Actually he did. remember when tel and scott switched. he had visions in his mind from linking with telford that tel had shagged her.

dont know it this had been said, but my favorite conversation was the one at the gate factory between Rush, Scott and Greer. When he said something about "divergence" cant remember.

from where I come from that is the first step to take in order to shag. plus he already did sleep with her, with his body only and that split second.
