Hearing about this, Daniel and Teal'c (being civilians) tell Cam see ya later and ask if they can join Sam's team. Then we could all watch the new and improved Stargate SG13
    Funnily enough, I actually started a story similar to this a couple of nights ago - insomnia has one or two advantages.

    I figured that, given Sam's overwhelming qualifications, there was bound to be some among the higher-ups that would want her leadership skills and stargate experience utilised to the fullest and who would have Landry give her command of the next new SG team to be formed.

      Ugh. Don't get me started on THAT.

      EDIT: Not just on the dismal condition of Carter's decoration, but on Bridge's ability to do research. I mean, SOMEONE researched the Medal of Honor, right? And SOMEONE did that funky neuroscience research that turned up "we only use 10% of our brains". TWICE! Oy.

        i have a list around somewhere. a LONG list.

        and the MOH. ugh. not only was it stupid, it was insulting to the real men and woman that have won it, (as well as to sam and jack). (MOH is worth 15 points. air medal is worth 3)

        LOL. that entire 10% myth makes me laugh (though i admit it would be neat). did they seriously fail high school science? or is there no internet access at bridge? ::googles 10% of brain.:: wow, look at that. "Neuroscience for Kids". must have been to complicated for them.

          Hey guy,

          Didn't we decide a while back that we thought Brad Wright was the master of the small character moments.

          I wouldn't be too disheartened by the current spoilers yet... and I'll believe
          Spoiler:
          the promotion thing when I see it


          It'll take 4 or 5 eps for change to happen in the writing... give it time.. plus you know.. 200th.. RDA.. that'll be good

            Errrr, sorry to go OT here, but Myrth... I've just got your Replicarter sig up here and I can't decipher the three letters. It says sacrificed by...."***". I can't read it, but on first glance it looked like TJH which are my initials. I nearly freaked! Anyway, now I'm curious and need to know.
            Yepp, it's blank down here.

                Okay, here's one for the bookkeeper. If I'm wrong, and they promote Carter over Mitchell, putting her in full command of SG-1, I'll put the first $40 down on a fruit basket for the writers.
                I'll write a letter of apology to "the Coop" for all the nasty thoughts that have crossed my mind concerning him and throw in a pack of LifeSavers.

SHOW us the 'new' team cares about and respects one another. Don't just tell us it's there. Show us the caring we used to see among Sam, Daniel, and Teal'c and show us some of that extending to Mitchell.

                  They know it needs to be done. I just hope that now, they'll be able to do it. And not just talk about it.

                  Yes but they'll show how much they care by having Cam say Vala I really care about you. (while he's staring at her cleavage

                    Not at that time. I mean. Argh... I'm not explaining myself. She worked at area 51, but when Landry phoned Jack..... let me try and set it out differently. Sam works at Area 51, but she's gone to visit her boyfriend in Washington. Landry knows that they've set aside the weekend as a romantic weekend, but he needs Sam's help. He's very apologetic about the whole thing, but Jack is one step ahead of him and has already sent Sam.

                      I'll match your $40 for a fruit basket and raise you a box of chocolate.

                        Heck, I wouldn't mind a "Beers of the World' gift thingy myself.
                        Shouldn't we send them something more fitting for the job they have done so far?

                            as the REAL commander of sg-1
                            That is a great idea Sky!!!!!!! Add a honorary Full Bird Colonel plague/award to boot.

                              if sam gets promoted, we send the writers a basket
                              if she doesn't and cam get promoted over her, we buy her our own set of colonels eagles and send them to her

                              That's a great idea! I'll contribute.

                                Hope its okay to post this here. Made an Amanda wallpaper. Nothing to great, I'm still learning how to use my programs.
