    Hmmm.. then it turns out that she can use the Ancient tech... but not very well... not with predictable outcomes... and it's extremely physically taxing.... Hmmmm.... (so there are reasons that she asked Jack to come to Maybourne's planet in IGTBTK)... or maybe there is more than one 'Ancient gene'?

    Edited to add:And then just a few posts down... TJ has the same idea!
    Hmm, I'm not sure the protein marker would really have an effect on using Ancient technology since Jack has the same protein marker as Sam and it never seemed to have a negative effect on him. At least he, Janet and Teal'c were all suppose to have the same protein marker as Sam after Legacy, but maybe the writers forgot about that in later episodes.

      see what happens when you take a group of fans that love a certain character? look how many ideas we come up with. WE LOVE SAM!

      on a side note: i'm watching the old show 'columbo' (nothing's on until 'medium tonight... well, to me at least). anyhoo, columbo asked this one guy why the owner of the winery didn't make champagne, or make the bottles that the wine went in. the guy's answer: "it's better to do one thing really well, then to do many in a slipshod fashion." the first thing that came to mind was the ptb trying to do two shows at once!

        Didn't they inject everyone with it? Now that's an angle, they inject Sam and something hinky happens because the gene reacts with Naquadah.

          I agree. Further we know she doesn't because she can't turn on Ancient technology. Like in "It's Good to be King" she needed Jack to show up to activate the ship once she got it wired.

              Yep. And its quite possible that they weren't using it back on Earth just at the moment, since the first we hear about people from Earth having the gene therapy treatment is in Seige pt2.

                I agree AD. Given the usefulness of ancient technology over the past few years and the fact that they DO have that gene therapy injection, it doesn't make sense to me why they wouldn't inject ALL SG teams with it, because you never know when using a piece of the tech might come in handy.

                Having said that, I always thought it was a HUGE cop out and a waste that they invented that "gene" and took away from the neat special-ness of people like Jack and/or Sheppard having been born with it. I think they should have kept that idea going.

                BUT... based on what they've done in canon, I can't see why they wouldn't have already given the gene to everyone on SG-1, including Sam. I don't think they have, though; because frankly I don't think they've thought that much about it in the writer's room yet. Doesn't make much sense, however.

                  That would be BRILLIANT!!!

                  Ive read SO many fics where she's injected with... various things, that react all wonky to the naquadah. They should do it in the show more than just saying "oh, naquedah makes her immune" or w/e.

                  Super!Sam ftw. I always thought it would be hilarious if she could read everyone's minds... even if we didn't hear them ourselves, if they just had her reacting to things, and potentially accidentely blurting out things... aaah the possibilities...

                    is the gene therapy treatment thinger from atlantis? so it changes ppl's genes to have the ancient properties? if so, BRING IT ON FOR SAM!

                      More like utter repulsion like she felt about Turghan. He should be glad she wasn't in the mood for a tussle or he'd be knocked on his tush with a blade wedged firmly against his carotid artery.

                            That has such great humor potential!

                              And yet you confessed to the fact that it was hot (which of course in no way suggests you're leaning toward the hawtness of Jack/Sam, only that you appreciate a REALLY great kiss when you see one).

                              So why then would you torture me with something you know I won't like? Hmm?

                                when they inject sam with it, *that's* when she developements telepathy!
