    The real (former) AF Chief of Staff Gen. Ryan has a guest apearance in this episode.

    This episode got a little slow in a few places for me, but I still enjoyed it, especially after Hailey got the chip brushed off her shoulder

    At first, Haily was annoying to me, but when she reappeared in S5 as a recruit, she was a good character Those little 'glowy' things pack a punch.

    This wasn't one of my favourite eps of season 4 but I agree, the commentary on this ep is great.

    It is indeed the one with words! Once you've heard it you'll never be able to think of anything else during the opening credits, lol.

    You have no idea how true that is! That's got to be one of funniest things on any of the commentaries I've watched.

    i really liked this episode, but i really loved the audio commentary.
    and its true, i cannot hear the opening theme music without thinking of the song.

    one thing though. why are the two theories mutually exclusive. carter thinks its a retalliation. hailey thinks its to do with the moon and whatnot. why can't they be angry and the moons polar whatchacallit is just agrivating it further? (forgive the lack of terminollogy, but i haven't watched this one in a while and my memory sucks)

    IIRC Hailey was claiming that the lifeforms weren't sentient and therefore were only reacting to the magnetic field of the planet. Carter's theory was that they were retaliating because of what they did to the first one, thus that would mean that they were sentient.

    aha! i still think you could combine the two with a little compromise. they were sentient, angry and reacting to the magnetic field of the planet which was making their behaviour more agressive than it would ordinarily have been in such a situation. i think they were both wrong!

    Yes, but their individual theories were mutually exclusive. So they couldn't be combined. Besides the point is not to try to combine the theories it's to come up with something that fits the facts, and by the few facts they had they were either sentient and retaliating, or non-sentient and effected by the magnetic field.

    Bees aren't particularly sentient, but they can communicate to each other if they ae under attack, and bees in a hive respond to chemical signals and body movements of other bees to know where to go to attack the 'threat'.

    An analogy with the glowy things would be like on an ordinary day, if you seem to be threatening a beehive you might get stung a few times. On a very hot day (or when the magnetic field does it's whatsit), when the bees (or glowies) are in a foul mood anyway cos of the heat (magnets), you could get attacked by the entire swarm.

    I reckon it wasn't impossible for Carter and Hailey to both be right at once.

    Does anyone know what the minimum height is for female cadets at theAF Acad? In Proving Ground O'Neill said Hailey was 4-9, I think. The AF objects to certain things being on the show, like real Sam/Jack ship, yet they said that in RL Hailey would have been thrown out of the Acad. and yet the ep was shown. Which got me thinking if in RL she would even have been tall enough to enroll. Just wondering. No prejudice by me against short people!!

    I live on base with my family, and i don't think theres any height limit or anything, unless your like 1'' tall... I walk around all the time, and see short woman and men, and see very tall woman and men, but i'll have to check if there is a height requirement...
