    yeah, but it does get old

    and i still don't quite understand how they were able to close two totally separate entities in one body, especially since harlan couldn't quite pull that off with his copies

    How many massive, completely underground construction facilities can they have completely with production facilities nearby? Even then, if they had a bunch how many could they actually operate at once? The trinium and naquada are the key components for the ships and have to be mind off world and brought through the gate load by load, there wouldnt be a steady enough supply to continuously operate more than one or two construction projects

    I agree. Once, having Ba'al die, and then come back is cool. But, have it happen again and again? It's like when you see him die, there's no impact. And, no impact when he shows up again.

    They have in fact been working on ships far before Prommie got blown away. They were focused on building ships its just that the Deadalus was the first one off the line and once they saw its success they cranked up the pace seeing the opportunity for dominance once gouald fell.

    I guess Ba'al made just enough copies of himself so at least one can die each episode untill the end of the season.

    But there were 4 of him on this ship so I assume 4 died in this ep... whats the count now 6 or 7 down.

    ^^^ Kinda sounds like seasons 9 and 10 of SG-1 to me. Thor, ya got Aspirin?

    AGateFan has officially Gone Fishin (with Jack, Sam, Daniel, Teal'c) and is hoping Atlantis does not take that same hairpin turn.

    I thought this episode was great from start to finish. I loved the Mary Poppins line and Sam's reaction; I thought the Landry/Nerus byplay was funny (and ultimately ingenious on Landry's part); the battle on Ba'al's ship was very nice and gave a nice echo of earlier episodes. And it's always nice to see Ba'al again (the outfit, while not terrible, was definitely not his best--must be getting harder to get a good tailor in the outermost regions of the galaxy). I suppose the only thing that really didn't wow me was the whole Lucien Alliance thing--they seem more of a distraction than anything else.

    But I think my favorite part was the Teal'c/Mitchell interaction. I'm really liking the way their relationship is shaping up. It seems like Teal'c regards Mitchell as a little brother (and treats him the same) and Cam sees Teal'c as an older brother/mentor type. It's nice to see. I think it gives Teal'c a sort of focus or reason to stick around. It might be interesting to see the Teal'c/Cameron relationship evolve into a Bra'tac/Teal'c relationship.

    Regarding the ending with Mitchell saying it was a good day. I think because they completed their mission of retrieving the gates and making it back to SGC in one piece (relatively speaking), that it left Mitchell (and Teal'c) feeling a sense of accomplishment after a hard-fought battle. Very different from the ending of the last episode where all their hard work and sacrifice was for nothing.

    I figured out who the captain of the Oddyssey (I know, I'm spelling it wrong) was. He looked familiar. He played Dale, John Carter's nemesis on the early seasons of ER. I think.
    He played in Wedding Singer playing the out of date stockbroker sleaze fiance of Adam Sandler's crush interest.

    We didn't actually see any of them die. Who knows maybe gated off like SG-1 did.

    Arrow2 Re: Off The Grid (916)

    I agree I think killing Baal over and over loses impact. I have watched stargate from the beginning and love the show. However this episode had me rutting for Baal. I mean what was the point in getting back the gates? He was going to use the gates to start over. I don't know why SG1 needed to get the gates, to give them to the drug dealers? Didn't see the point in killing the goa'uld, it was a waste of character development to kill them off for such a stupid reason. Though I'm still hopeful that the writers will resurrect Osiris since it's obvious they're shooting for sex appeal now

    I think it's safe to assume that the very LAST one left at the end of the season is the real Ba'al.

    Yeah I like the back and forth between them too. Especially on the Daedalus in Ripple Effect when Tealíc kicked his a** that was classic

    So they can build and launch a ship in less then a year with a limitied trickle of raw materials and a fabrication process that must be done completely in secret and then assembled in secret? Come on. There is suspension of disbelief and then there is the writers insulting our intelligence. This definately falls into the later.

    Well, they took the gates to keep Ba'al from using them to restart his empire.

    While I can see why they would want a victory after last week, I think it would have been more interesting if they hadn't gotten all the gates. I mean, if Ba'al is rebuilding, it shouldn't have ended in just one episode.

    They needed the gates because if they didn't get them back and return them it would have thrown all of the correlative updates that the gates system receives out of wack if Ba'al stole enough gates. I assume this would have made gate travel impossible.

    I think it would be pretty cool if one of the Ba'als clones turned out to be good, do to some genetic mutation. I think it would have made for a better episode.
