      Glad you appreciate that. Not having been an SG1 fan prior to Browder/Black (I'm a die-hard, obsessed Farscape fan), I obviously favor Black in most everything but I really like Carter. My 16 year old daughter likes Carter. Claudia Black, for god's sake, likes Carter! And Amanda Tapping, of course. How very unfortunate if we don't get to see these two interesting women interact in a big way on season 10.

      Plus, I'm all for fairness and AT has certainly earned her place. I was ok with Mitchell being commanding officer--Carter strikes me as the type who wouldn't need to be in charge--but, geez....

      How stupid are these writers if they pass up the great comic potential, not to mention just the female perspective, of Vala/Sam moments?

        While I am not a "Samandan" I do like Sam and IMO she should have been the leader after Jack did his exit stage left. That being said, I can't picture her on Atlantis. There is no hole to fill. And don't throw things at me for saying this, but I prefer the Sheppard/McKay banter rather than the Carter/McKay one
        As soon as I get control of my bigger puter (tomorrow) I'll download the red book

        I love Sam .In fact Sam is my favourite character . I wish I would have more time to be able to read all the threads in this forum but I can only read a couple as I am a member of other forums too for other shows .

        But If Sam goes , I go and I will follow what Amanda will do as I think Amanda is a fantastic person with a great heart She loves her fans and speak to them ..She updates he offical site very often and I like that very much .

        I also do not want her to go to SGA not that I watch SGA because I don't ..I tried but the show doesn't suck me in at all !!!! Why ?!! don't know !!!!

        but I would love Amanda to go on a new venture and get a new leading role somewhere else ..Would be great to see her Experienced that . I hope she will choose that option

        and I'll be there

          Well we still have 10 hours and 40 minutes left of Sunday here so I say it's definitely possible.

            Well, here's my contribution to the 1000 pages!

            I've been a Sam fan since I started watching Stargate well over 3 years ago. I think she's a wonderful character - it's great to see a strong scientist role for a woman, and to see it played so well is even better!

            As far as her future goes, I will happily support any decision that AT makes. I wish her the best of luck in whatever she does!

              I do most definitely appreciate it. I think we all do. And I'm a big fan of Claudia Black as well. I didn't watch Farscape (I've been given the DVDs to take a look at now so I intend to watch), but from the get-go (with her work in "Prometheus Unbound"), I was very impressed with both her and her character. Vala has a lot of character potential. Not to mention that being able to watch a few good scenes in the future of Stargate that include both Sam and Vala is one of the soapboxes I've stood upon as well. Both Amanda and Claudia would probably have a great time together.

              Cheers!!

                Shameless plug--sort of--plus helping to get to 1000.

                You need to watch some Farscape to totally appreciate Claudia Black! LOL. I think the character really starts to take off around episode 1.7 (Pk Tech Girl)

                Sorry--my fan girliness often gets the better of me. I think everyone on Farscape rocks but Claudia pretty much stole the show for me the first time I saw her (episode 1.19) LOL

                Anyway...I'd be real sorry to see AT go. I'm hoping it's not true and I'll just "lalalalalalala" my way to season 10.

                  i love claudia black as well... i think nthat her and ssam would be great together, she is like the spoilt child and sam is the mature one... i think that would work well together.... no offence to AT, but i dont want her in Atlantis... SG1 doesnot need to be an all boys club, i am sure that having two females around will be fine... geesh

                      I so loved Aeryn Sun ( Farscape ) She was great same as John Crichton but I don't like Vala at all and I 'm not keen on the character of Mitchell . For me I think it's a shame that they( CB and BB) joined the cast of Stargate .I just don't see them in the show ..I don't know why !!!

                      ..... but if One day they do another show , I will give it a try and watch them because they were so great together in Farscape ....a great chemistry .

                        I Agree SGA should stick to the new team ..no need to put some of the original SG1 in there now . ..and Sam deserves better than being sent to Atlantis as I'm sure she could still be a valuable team member to fight the ori.

                        Saying that I just hope that Amanda will move on , as she deserves better than being messed around with .

                        Would love to see her in that new show she was talking about ..I wonder if it's sci-fi too !!!

                          The problem is with this is, it just hit yesterday and we're reacting like this. What happens when it hits AT's groups over at Yahoo. You would have thought with what happened with MS they would have learned, but what happens when over 4000 combined members of her groups over there find out?

                          I think TPTB are in for a rude awaking.

                            Hey guys, check out those blog comments on JM's blog. I think we need a few more positive Sam Carter fans in there (without attacking Joe, of course please). Right about now we have a contingent of wacky folks trying to insinuate that Amanda (the person) deserves being kicked off SG-1 because of some sort of made-up fairy tale they have that she and Michael Shanks are on the outs. It's fantasyland. Lets outnumber 'em with the positive posts, shall we??

                              Wow, so this is how Stargate ends. Thanks Sci Fi, you have never let me down with your inability to make a good scifi show. You should really consider renaming your network Sci-Fi Sleaze network (if it’s got spandex and sex it MUST be good sci fi).

                              I now no longer have hope for this show and will encouraged no one to ever watch it again if this turns out to be true. They turn their back on their primary fan base and I am sure we (yes probably others besides me) will turn our backs on them.

                              If they replaced Carter with a respectable military professional because Tapping wanted to leave I would probably still watch. But to replace yet another military professional with some less than honorable sex kitten is inexcusable.

                              Thanks TPTB now you get to once again find out how small the Farscape fandom actually is.

                              Good Luck Amanda, you are far too good for where this show is apparently going. Remember if you want a good TV role stay as far away from SciFi channel as possible.

                              ^^^ Kinda sounds like seasons 9 and 10 of SG-1 to me. Thor, ya got Aspirin?

                              AGateFan has officially Gone Fishin (with Jack, Sam, Daniel, Teal'c) and is hoping Atlantis does not take that same hairpin turn.

                                well, i know i invited some peeps to read my posts on the shipper thread, but i'm going to go ahead and paste them hear anyways. i know we're trying to stay positive, but i need to vent *here*.



                                spoilers for sg1 seasons 7-9 and atlantis' current season

                                (snip)

                                even if i don't watch atlantis, i know enough that i can't see how sam would fit in WITHOUT HER PUSHING ANOTHER CHARACTER'S WORTH ASIDE. and seeing as i've seen how that goes this season (mitchell vrs sam, and vala vrs sam), i would NEVER want to put another preferred character through what has been going on for me.

                                so now i'm lost as to what i want to happen here. in this season alone, i've lost jack/rda, lost sj ship, had sam/other shown in 2 of the five eps sam's been in so far (and with the second half of 'fourth horseman still do, that leaves another sam/orlin ship ep to look forward too). i also know that martouf's coming back in 'ripple effect', and there's sam-mckay ship to be afraid of on the atlantis front.... and now i'm being told that my sole reason for staying with fargate -i mean stargate- is also going by the wind.... this is the most miserable fan experience i've ever been through, and the downfall actually started before season 7 even aired (started with a lovely **cough** amanda interview about how wonderful **gag** it was filming the bedroom/morning after scene for chimera). since then, it's been a slow fall from grace.

                                can it really get worse?

                                i think it will.


                                ~~~next~~~


                                let's see, what could sam carter do for/in season 10 (and 9):

                                *sam resumes command of sg1.

                                *sam starts up a relay with jack o'neill. (can be mostly done off camera until/if rick decides to grace us with another ep)

                                *sam's jolinar experience can come into play again. you know, it's been ignored for years, so bring it up again AND make use of it.

                                *sam could command the beta site. the whole base. no need to infringe in atlantis and upset the fans.

                                *joe mallozzi joked one time about sam finding out she had latent telepathic powers (was a joke spoiler section from one of his blogs). but it sounded like a great idea to me!

                                *cassie could make appearances because sam's now her guardian. the opportunities for exploring the sam-cassie relay are great.

                                *bring back replicarter. there's so much life in this idea alone (and so much for amanda to do).


                                there's more, but i'd like to hear others ideas.


                                what it looks like is all of sam's story ideas have been given to someone else --

                                sam and jacob: opps, we killed him off. let's give it to landry and lam.

                                sam having memories and powers because of her jolinar experience: opps, we ignored that, and besides, we've given vala that power/situation now.

                                sam commanding sg1: opps, amanda went on maternity leave and we had to have *someone* take over for her while she was gone. let's give it to the new guy and let him keep it.

                                sam and jack: opps, rick left the show and we don't *want* to write sam/jack ship without him. let's give it to vala and daniel to hold up the shipper end.

                                where does sam fit in when they've taken all her roles to play? can't they come up with new things? doesn't look like they even want to try.

                                i'm sorry if i'm sounding so down, but that it because i am. i'm appalled by all of this, going right through the entire stargate franchise. amanda has been treated like sh*t by a show that wouldn't be where they are without her contribution. if anyone sees a way out of this mess that works for amanda AND atlantis/sg1, please share your wisdom.

                                what i do know is if amanda does join atlantis, i'm going to stay right where i am and not set foot in their fandom. i can't take another group of ppl dissing on sam carter/amanda tapping. i'm not saying it would happen, but the ingredients are ripe. (just look how we sam fans have reacted to mitchell/vala). i can't take it anymore.

                                guys, just let me get this all out of my system. i'll eventually shut up.
