    I think Sam would have a very hard time going back to telescopes and radar dishes after being able to actually get out there and feel the dirt in her hands

    Perhaps but stepping through the gate as an explorer and stepping through the gate as a scientist in a scientific manner are totally different. I'm sure at times Sam wishes she had more time to spend on the actual science process. With SG-1, she acquires all the new alien technology and then in most cases she must pass it on to other scientist to actually study it. I'm not saying she doesn't enjoy her job, but I could see her eventually getting to a point where she no longer wants to continue exploring, however I couldn't see her do the same with science as a whole.
    Sam wanted to be an astronaut... and she went the Air Force jet pilot route in pursuit of her goal... so I see her as wanting to continue going through the gate - exploring and finding new things.

      Just scroll through untill you find the character you want, then copy it into whatever program you're using. And it should also have the ALT + Keystroke (if there is one for that character) so you can use a hotkey instead of going thru the Character Map

        That's a (back)story for another AU episode.


        my question: why did joe write backstory like that? it's a clue, but i don't know what it means. any takers?

          I'm hoping it means Return of the Geek!Sam. And the explanation as to why Sam was Geekified

                  Wow there is so much that I want to comment on, but it is way past my bed time so I will make this short as possible, mainly because my little brain it too tired.

                  yay. I will watch the first couple of epeisodes before AT returns. For several reasons
                  1)
                  Spoiler:
                  RDA will appear in the 1st and 3rd episode. They may or may not be the only episodes he is in this season, and I don't want to miss him!

                  2) I want to understand what is going on when AT does return.

                  Like many of you it will depend on how the writers portray Sam (and other stories involving Sam). I have every confidence in AT and how she will protray her character. Although, there is only so much she can do. She did have objections about several story lines in the past, and the writers listened sometimes and didn't in other times.

                  I really liked the show, but I can't seem to have the same enthusiasm as I have had in the past seasons about the season premier. I am happy for all of those that are excited, though. I don't want to take away from them.

                  As far as Mitchell leading SG-1 ... the verdict is still out on that one! I have listened to several of you and I have to say you have eased my mind a little. However, I still gringe when I think about the writers indicate they have someone else in charge of SG-1. I will watch the show to see how it will play out.

                  I guess that is all for now. Good night!

I see her a woman who loves her job as a soldier and explorer, but science is more than a job to her. It's in her blood. It's her passion. Without it, she wouldn't feel complete.
                        i think that's her number one love too.

                          How many of you aren't going to watch the show until Beach Head? I kinda wanted to take a poll of some kind, so...


                          If you will definitely watch all eps leading up to Beach Head, please say, "Yay."

                          If you will not be watching any eps leading up to Beach Head, please say, "Nay."

                          And if it's all up in the air for you, please say, "Meh."


                          Thanks for indulging my bout of curiosity!

                          Just so you know, I'm a "Yay."
                          Hey guys!

                          Not that this is a big deal or anything, but I just thought I'd post the results of that informal poll from earlier, if any of you are interested.

                          I copied my original post, just in case anyone new wants to join the fray later on.


                          YAYs - 15

                          MEHs - 2

                          NAY - 1

                          I have to say that I was glad to see so many open-minded "Yays," though I completely understand where the "Mehs" and the "Nay" are coming from.

                          I might need to take this poll to other threads so I can get some other perspectives as well!

                            let's play a game. let's pretend that we've been writing stargate since the beginning. how would 'we' have written sam in all these years?

                            now since we're all different in tastes and ideas, this will be interesting to see what each one of us would have done. and since we're all kind to one another here, it'll be enjoyable too.

                            i would have made more of a deal of sam having jolinar's memories. that would be an aspect i would have continued from the get-go after 'in the line of duty'. not make her super human, just use those skill and memories more often.

                            (in complete seriousness), i would have brought sam and jack together in season 4, sometime after their zaytarc testing admissions. then, through the seasons , i would have had them get married. sam would have already had her second child by now.

                            i would have retired jack 'from sg1' way before now, with sam taking command.

                            i can so *see* all of this happening, with sam coming off as a competent and accomplished scientist and soldier. all the unease and uncertainty in her private life wouldn't have been.

                            i can see many of the eps that have happened happening again, with only maybe a small tweak here and there.

                            i know some of you would cringe at my super shippiness in this, but as the writer, i would have 'balanced' the many aspects of sam's life. many of us balance both without drowning out the other.

                            i'm interested in hearing what others would have done with sam through the years.

                                This is just a thread of people
                                Most of whom will never meet
                                And yet what happens in Samanda
                                Is something hard to beat

                                We all have one common purpose
                                To celebrate our Queen
                                We often chat and ramble
                                But never are we mean

                                Some of us may come and go
                                While others choose to stay
                                Something almost magical
                                Takes place along the way

                                Compliments are given
                                Civility displayed
                                Sure we beg to differ
                                But don't let differences dismay

                                We admire one special lady
                                Her talent, wit, and beauty
                                She has affected all of us
                                Sam Carter is a cutie

                                She's much more than that of course
                                A woman of substance and resource
                                A role model for young and old
                                Leading us a hundredfold

                                Life oft imitates art you know
                                We may try to be Sam as we grow
                                Learning how to find our gifts
                                We can be Samspecialists

                                Yes we're just a group of scifi folks
                                Sharing stories, telling jokes
                                One great actor brought us here
                                So enjoy the ride, share in the cheer
