In the stargate universe, we know that I know that the show takes all of the current history up untill the start of the show and incorporates it (With Carter having flown missons in the first gulf war and all)
So I'm wondering, in the stargate universe, did 9-11 happen too? In atlantis, Shepard has a past where he did things in Afganistan, which we all know would not be an issue if 9-11 never happened. Also, if 9-11 did happen in the stargate universe, you think there would have been more 'said' about it... maybe the writers thought that the invasion of the gould would far overshadow a homworld grown terrorist attack... At the same time, you'd think that with the more advanced technology they developed, especialy with the Prometheus, that it would be easier to find terrorist hideouts, and then call in a favor and have Thor 'abduct' them and drop them on an uninhabited planet with food, shelter and other provisions. Thor could even plant a momory in all their heads that they've died in a terrorist attack and this is paradise where they're at !!!
anyway, just something that's been rattling around in my brain.
