    No, I never said so! Still it doesn't make sense that we see other first primes (including Bratac) fly ships (Teal'c does so later, too!) and Teal'c supposedly wasn't taught (Apophis would never be satisfied with an inferior "product" to the first primes of the other systemlords!)

      It depends on the job requirement. We don't know the history of each jaffa. For all we know Bra'tac was once a helmsman when he was younger or maybe at one point of time he was taught. He is much older than Teal'c and Teal'c was later taught. Same with Her'ak. In all likelihood, the First Primes were elites selected from different fields (helmsmen, glider pilots, ground troops) who proved they were capable on the battlefield commanders. The ones who could fly Ha'taks were simply helmsmen before. But there's nothing in the First Prime job description that lists "fly a Ha'tak" as a job requirement. To say a First Prime is a bad First Prime because he can't fly a ship is like saying Navy Seal is a bad Navy Seal because he can't sail a naval ship. A helmsman can become a Seal. A Seal could learn the skills of a helmsman. But a Seal doesn't need to be able to sail a ship.

        How is this not saying so? How is this different from saying (because StargateMillennium's example was better than mine) that all Navy Seals should be taught to fly "just in case"?

        It's about the best use of resources, which isn't to teach people who will most probably never need to know, how to use expensive & sophisticated equipment.

          (Fifty) Shades of Grey is actually a rather boring episode, if I may be so honest.

          It's okay, not bad, but just a little too boring for my taste.

          Okay, so Colonel O'Neill pretends to have it with the soft take on acquiring technology by the SGC and decides to go rogue with Maybourne in a ploy to catch the latter and his rogue team in the act and arrest them all for high crimes. And that's about it. I'm even surprised they managed to fill 42 minutes with this.

          This was a filler, wasn't it. It sure feels that way to me.

          I did like that shot of O'Neill stepping through the stargate in the SGC and emerging right after through the one on Edora, where the DHD is still showing the signs of having to be patched back up after the fire rain event. I really liked that continuity.

          Beyond that, it's just meh for me...

          How would you rate SG-1's "Shades of Grey?"

          Excellent
          Good
          Fair
          Poor
          Terrible

              Its not a filler FH because it develops the rogue NID arc. I'm of two minds with this episode. I can't decide if I like or hate this episode. On one side I like that we learn more about the rogue NID as a more practical aspect of Earth. On the other side its totally unbelievable that Jack was ever going rogue. No one should be able to believe what he said because it was obvious a sham. I call it a poor because Im feeling negative today

                See, I didn't buy that either... not even Daniel. Not even an inkling -- they should have an inkling.

                      Twice as long -- you clearly take your time.

                        I am not going to watch this-- I hate betrayal situations, even if it is a sham. I really don't want to get angry.

                          Kinda like how I will never watch Demons again.
