This is an episode I really enjoyed. It was pretty interesting considering it was a clip show. I tend to get excited at any ep that has bits of disclosure in it. OMG! I live to see their reactions. & the Brit's reaction was classic!!! "Wha, what"??? I so wish to sometime see the StarGate be introduced to the world & the reaction & how they handle it. Anyway as far as to who was chosen to be there for disclosure & why such allies like Japan & Australia were left out. Hammond himself stated they were there because they were the most militarily powerful in the event of an attack on earth & the Chinese themselves had evidence to contradict the cover stories that they were about to come forward with.
Maybe Kinsey & Hammond shouldn't be holding their private little war in front of other nations, but it goes to show not only Kinsey's desperation to snag the gate, but his self righteousness. It's obvious he's too 1 track minded to care about agruing in front of foreign dignataries, & Hammond was left in a position in which he had to respond. The consequences of what'd happen if the NID had the gate were too important to ignore. I love Thor!! For a puppet he's a GREAT character. I loved that finger he gave Kinsey & I think if it wasn't a family oriented show Thor would've flipped him a different one. Hahaha! You can't invent a Sci-Fi show & create a non existant world without inconsistancies & at least most of them are minor. I laugh at some, but never let them get in the way of the enjoyment of the show
