    Old Man: "Oh. Want to look at my books?"
    Yeah, that bothered me a lot. No realism in that AT ALL.

    And the Prometheus' crew uniforms look somewhat like the ones from ST: Enterprise, which bothered me a little. Plus Ronsen, for all his claiming command, only basically took suggestions until they landed, when he suddenly became Mr. "This is my ship." I liked him better as a blowhard than a useless wet noodle, but the change was quite sudden.

    Did the xenophobic defense minister guy remind anyone of Lurch from the Addams Family?

    Sheesh.

    I found s8's Icon to be very cathartic.

    That old guy drove me crazy!


    Cool ep with the Prommie and all the guns. I especially liked the uncovering of the Stargate.
    I thought it was funny that the Tigrean(sp?) city had earth-like billboards.
    Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini => three of the world's worst dictators.

    Also failed artist, failed priest, and failed grade-school teacher.

    What we should learn: Don't trust artists, be wary of priests, and fear your teachers!

    I liked this a lot too.

    One thing I really liked about this episode was that the Tegarens did not turn out to be some "evil" race with some sinister motive or other such skeleton in their closet. Too often, a lot of sci-fi leans on something like that. True, the defense guy was way over paranoid, but that was it, he just wanted things to stay the same. The Chairman had some concerns about the new visitors, but was willing to move forward with relations and try to help them. Very good story the way it was done.

    How could they have a hyperspace generator, if they haven't been to other planets, and not even met people from other worlds?

    I like how well Jonas and Teal'c worked together in this one to figure out where the gate was buried. Nice that Earth made some a new ally. Jonas definitely has some great muscles. Did anyone else notice how Teal'c called him Jonas and not JonasQuinn when they were uncovering the stone covering the gate? That always stands out to me for some reason.

    Just saw this episode again last night, and noticed something. Was it just me, or did the weapons Commander Kalfas and his men were using resemble the weapons of the Genii on SGA?

    HEy everybody! Memento was just on SciFi, and I forgot how much I loved that episode. When did Col. Pendergast take command over The Promethious?

    Yeah, I caught the last half of "Memento" tonight on Sci-Fi. I agree, it was a really good ep from season 6.

    yes all gates have nine chevrons, duh im supprised people think they dont, watch episodes such as prisoners the 5th commandmant and you will see the gates in all their glory without being stuck in the ground.

    earths SG is the same as all the other gates, there isnt anything special about the earth gate with slight exceptions being the powersource jack used to dial the asgard in season 2, all gates can do that, the only gate that has superiority over others is the atlantis gate, this is only because the ancients made that gate the only known gate to be able to dial the milky way, for reasons that make sense as far as the wraith are concerned.
    For all the pollution woes on Earth, will the Human race end up taking those problems into space in the future?

    I enjoyed this episode but something irks me. I have this feeling that, as I've only seen some of season 7 and none further, we are never going to see these people again. The way events unfolded it seems logical we would try to make an alliance or at the very least get some tech or something. When I think of the episode this way, it really feels like a filler episode and it seems to me that the writers were just kind of stuck trying to find a direction and threw this in there to fill the gap. Normally a filler ep wouldn't be bad, stand alone eps are great when done right as this one was. But it being a good filler ep is what kills it for me because it becomes one of those "What ever happened to those guys?" episodes in my mind like the Nick Ballard/Crystal Skull ep. Entertaining and well written episode but I can't help but feel it went to waste.

    Btw, one thing I really enjoyed about this ep was the bickering between two prick characters on opposite sides, the commander of the Promethius and that military guy from the other planet that got arrested at the end. Rarely do any shows have that.
