    We are interpreting what is advanced from a human, Western, point of view. There are other kinds of advancement.

    Not to mention the inherent assumption that advanced>non-advanced.

    Major Lorne in season 7 of SG1, and he's still a major in season 5 of Atlantis. So awesome to see him. I knew Kavan was in SG1 but I'd forgotten what season.

    And bless Chaka... he's become quite the Unas diplomat.

    Us vs them again, and us just waltzes is and claims the place without even giving it a second thought. Damn, us can be arrogant at times. I wanted to smack them over the head with an Unas yolk. The certainly deserved the whoop-ass.

    Seeing all the tribes coming together to defend their territory is just awesome. Tell it to the Earthlings! Reminded me of the first battle we see in Gladiator where the German tribes face the Roman legions. Epic!

    Another okay episode...

    I liked watching Daniel do his linguist thing even if it seemed a little far fetched to a point...


    Facebook post about Alexis Cruz and the Audiobook he's done. If you're a fan of Alexis and his work - you'll love it. Book 1 and 2 are there now. The second one is brilliant, but I can't vouch for the first one (not having heard it), but I'm sure it's just as good, if not better.

    An absolutely fantastic episode.

    The whole set up - adding in two officers who outranked Hammond and O'Neill, the return of Chaka, Michael Rooker - gave the sense of dread throughout that this was not going to end well for anyone and that the military would barrel no matter the cost.

    My stomach was in a knot. That is damn good TV, and damn good sic-fi.

    Militarism versus reasoning - shoot first ask questions later or try to find an agreement.

    Jackson saves it and the military guy is not too cocky to state - great plot.


    Chaka the ace up the sleeve - well done. Love the ep.

    Hence the fiction in science fiction.

    This episode highlights how people should behave. Unfortunately they don't, as history will attest.

    really really missed the Original Chaka. He was sweeeet! This guy just feels off... Plus, prosthetics are horrible.

    The first Lorne-sighting, yay!

    In my opinion this Chaka couldn't have been sweet - he was the most important figure to make the plot work.

    Chaka evolved since the first time we saw him. His entire situation changed at the end of that first episode when he killed the Alpha male of the group, so sweet Chaka pretty much died when he became alpha male.

    maybe. But did he really need to become so wooden? The first actor played him amazingly and while I agree with you and Anja that the new Chaka-diplomat should act more alpha-male-ishly being the important figure and so on, but I still want him to be an interesting, alive, endearing person he was before - not just a token "weird alien".

    Well, anyway, all the valid points about the episode (arrogant earth-military and politicians, strangely xenophobic SGC-colonels) were mentioned in this thread already. I obviously came here too late

    Was Chaka portrayed by two different actors?

    I can't remember.

    Yes. He was first portrayed by the same actor who played the alien in The Fifth Man, and then by the actor who played Michael in 1969.

    omg, is this the same actor? I didn't know that! I loved the alien from "TFM", but would never think it's our Chaka To play an Unas convincingly, that's, you know... Too bad he haven't played more interesting roles

    IIRC, those two actors played the greatest number of minor roles on the show, eight each (mostly in heavy makeup).
