Daniel gets the meanings right, but lists the numerical value of the Runes as 3, 14, 15, 9 but if he's going by the numerical order of the Runes, it would be 3, 14, 19, 5.
The last two runes to get the numbers he reads would be Hagalaz (looks like an H) and Algiz (looks like an upside down peace sign without the circle)
Anyone else catch this?
Um.. So you're saying there is no possible way that the Asgard langange evolved over the time they left Earth?
The numerical value of the M and R runes are 19 and 5. Just a mistake I noticed.Originally Posted by KorbenDirewolf
The Asgard or the Cimmerians could have changed the order, and I suppose they could have told Daniel on his previous visit or they just cut the scene of Gairwyn correcting him, which would have been fun to see.
The rune that looks like "M" actually has the phonetic value of the letter "E."Originally Posted by Lugal
You are right about the numerical value being 19 though. I'm thinking the mix up might have been due to the similarity in the names of the 19th rune, Ehwaz, and the 15th, which is called Eiwaz and has the phonetic value of both X and Z.
You have a point, about the names being similar, although eihwaz has the value EI, or Y.Originally Posted by Capt. Rivet
I think the rune you're thinking of is algiz which does have the value of Z and X (and in Younger Futhark it was reversed and given the value of a final R)
This is why I wrote "M" rune to prevent confusion. but obviously it didn't work out that way.
Yeah... you're right. I don't know I was thinking...Originally Posted by Lugal
I actually found this episode quite boring. It didn't make much sense and lamed quality

The beam that came out of thor's ship is different then the normal Asgard transporter... I wonder what it is.
Liked the Thor's test thing... hall of something-or-other
Evil looking bad guy, cool space ship, and SC gets a hand device to play with.
It all has to do with pi... lol
Good revisit to the Cimmerians.Excellent visual effects,for a fairly early show.
Cool rescue by the Asgard from Heru-ur and his invasion force.
First use of the ribbon-device by Sam,but rather sad end for Kendra .
Pretty good ep overall,IMO.
"Hall of Thor's Might". (Bit ironic,given the size of the real Asgard,but I suppose it refers to the Hologram,or the superior civilisation and tech . )!Originally Posted by Selmak
Does anyone else find it odd that these Asgard are the powerful protectors of humanity? After all, throughout Norse mythology it was known that all of Heaven and Earth would be destroyed once the gods were defeated by the Giants.
Yeah, the norse godīs are a funny choice for the good guys. As a rule they didnīt care much for the troubles of humans and only respected those that where warriors and died a weapons death. Not exactly the people youīd expect to promote peace
I was wondering how Thor's Hammer would tell the difference between Teal'c and other Jaffa, since he was welcome anytime on the planet.
