    It's just like we never saw Narim again after the episode, New ground. Or heard back from Grand pa after the crystal skull episode.. Things forgotten about.

    A throw-away comment would have done just fine.

    I agree with Jelgate; failure to return to the site of a completed story is not a plot hole. And as much as I'd've liked to explore some of the societies and locations they introduced, I think it's wrong to expect a TV series to spend a lot of time on that.

    I think we use the term plot hole too much

    These are all things that seemed to just 'fall into that plot black hole'..

    I would also have liked them to go back!
    But it never was solved if O'Neill's girlfriend in A Hundred Days was pregnant as well!

    After doing a re-watch, i still love the interactions between the Orbans and Teal'c/Sam more so than with Daniel.. It still rubs me wrong on the interference they tried to foist on them, but i do understand it a little more..
    I also am peeved they never went back.

    The people in Learning Curve did not torture their kids willingly, the problem (the Tauri had with their way of learning) was solved elegantly.
    I think it was right to try something here, in other cases (like with the Nox) some thorough thinking before would have been nice.

    I agree we stupid Tauri are extremely arrogant, but in this particular episode the whole premise with transforming kids into vegetables was so horrible, I'm sure I would react in the same way. Besides, they said they only used this technology in about 50 years? Or am I wrong? How could they forget all normal way of learning then? Very unrealistic scenario, even for scifi, but makes a great topic for discussions

    I believe ALL of the normally gifted individuals and even people with some mental deficiencies are perfectly capable of learning. The state and politicians though tend to claim otherwise, 'cause it makes their life easier - they can save lot of money on education and pay for weapons instead. Sorry for offtopic.

    And it seems we Still have not learned that lesson, as of SGA..

    That's why the Nox's words to O'Neill were and still are (to me!) so important:
    Your ways are not the only ways.

    Meddling in other cultures was (and as of SGA) still standard practice. We see something that WE don't like, even if it works well for that culture, we go in and force a change to OUR ways..

    Cool episode. Although I'm not sure I completely agree with the way humans meddled with the Orban people's ways, at least they learned that the former Urrone kids weren't useless and could be taught the old-fashioned way.
