    I have just rewatched this episode on Stargate : Command. It was much better what I remembered. Plot twist, emotions, clever dialogues, crossover characters. I wish they could have mentioned Jonas.

    Maybe somebody asked the same question, but if they could have gone home then Harlan (from SG-1 Tin Man episode) could have made robotic bodies for the Amanda and Ginn.

    It would have been nice to see what the ramifications of their acts would have been.. but alas...

    I loved this episode. I completely forgot about faking that Rush woke up and was fooled a second time on the rewatch. I would have liked to have more Gin but Perry did good.

    The b plot with earth being bad was really good. Great to see Mckay around being Mckay. Looks like a episode that would have come back to haunt us if there was a season 3.

    He was never even mentioned in season 9 of SG1 - Guess the writers wanted us to forget he ever existed...

    WHERE WAS JOHNAS QUIN
    As jelgate said, the story was about Langara, not Jonas Quinn.

    Thats not a plot hole. Jonas presence or lack of is not crucial to the story

    Never thought about that, but I guess you're right.

    at least with this being done as it was, we are left with several questions..
    such as what is the fall out from what we did? Is langaran going to ever trust us again?
    Does the LA know about it/?
    Yes I thought it was strange, the last thing we saw, was the team surrendering. But what happened after?
    This must also have been because of the cancellation, I think we would have known in S3 ...

    Good episode...

    What's up with Langara? Isn't that the planet Jonas came from. I thought it had already exploded in the Goa'uld attack...

    This is one of the episode I will have to re-watch soon. It's very blurry in my mind. The sub-plot with Rush and Amanda was kind of cool.

    I was pretty sure Destiny would get new supplies and a few new soldiers on board. That was the whole idea of going to Langara, to get supplies to Destiny. But I got disappointed.

    It was certainly awkward to see Woolsey and especially McKay in SGU, still don't know what to think about it. McKay was kind of ignored by everyone except Woolsey, it was like they didn't fit in at all...

Or you have even the worse situation of what happened in this episode of the Langarians doing nothing wrong but safeguarding their own people.
    Who could blame them? They needed the gate, those people were out there in space stranded without supplies, McKay needed revenge for being snubbed after the first PowerPoint screen.

    I agree that it wasn't going to work though; while they could of pulled it off, there was no way they could truly have the candor of the Langarians. They were just too aggressive.

    Who knows.. Had the show not been canned, maybe we would have eventually gotten back to them.

    Jonas not appearing or mentioned in this episode did not really bothered me. I had accepted a long time ago that the writers would like to pretend that Jonas never existed. Think about ever since the SG1 episode Fallout the character has not been seen or mentioned. To me that suggests the writers would like to pretend he didn't exist so I had never gotten my hopes up. As for the story at hand I could tell from the beginning that what Homeworld Command was going to do was a bad idea.

Or you have even the worse situation of what happened in this episode of the Langarians doing nothing wrong but safeguarding their own people. I also find that McKay added very little episode. He served no purpose except to be "head scientist." It screamed nothing but a rating ploy.

    The Rush and Perry story I found a lot more interesting. It once again explored more about Destiny and expanded more of the artifical intelligence nature of Destiny. We saw the range and limit to what these AR programs could do. Interesting how Perry is similiar to Rush. Her arrogance and ego got in the way that she created a problem that she could not handle which led to circumstances making the ship far off before they got started. Because of Perry, she and Ginn are trapped in a quarntine. I wonder if the writers ever intended to continue that story arc because it was an interesting idea

    Yeah that would be interesting. Maybe a faction of the Langaran's team up with the Lucian Alliance. And Jonas warns Earth about it. (Wishful thinking)

    And its a pity that cause of the cancellation of the show, we never see what ramifications this brings down.
