    Well they say "History's written by the winners". Hayes is just wondering who'll be writing the history books concerning the Stargate, supporters or him and SG1 or supporters of Kinsey?

    As a Clip-show goes, this is the best of all clip show in 8 season of SG-1.
    IMHO it's a decent episode comparably to other episodes on any season. I like the interaction of Kinsey, Hayes & Woosley (and a bit of edgy-Hammond).
    It shows that Hayes is not as 'soft' and indifferent as we would have thought of the previous President, makes him plausible for his action in Lost City.
    And I really don't like Woosley in Heroes 2, but here he made a logical argument and respectable choice, and I kinda understand of why he'd done what he did in Heroes 2.
    Kinsey is a weasel here as always, but Hammond shows some part of him that we seldom seen.

    It was a good episode I liked the fact that someone who is friends with Hammond is now in charge

    I especially liked the flashback to disclosure:

    THOR: Hello. I am Thor, Supreme Commander of the Asgard fleet.

    KINSEY: Commander Thor, my name is ...

    THOR: Senator Kinsey. O'Neill suggested I send you to a distant planet for your actions here but I am reasonably certain his statement was in jest.

    KINSEY: I'm sure it was, Commander ...

    THOR: (Putting his boney finger up) *Supreme* Commander. It is the opinion of the Asgard High Council that Stargate Command should be left in the very capable hands of General Hammond and his team. And while our continued friendship with Earth is not contingent on that, it is preferred.

    I was overjoyed when Woolsey switched sides hopefully we will see a lot more of him

    Kinsey's fab. He never gives up, does he?

    He may be an evil old fart, but I always admire perseverance.

    He didnt seem to understand that its a good idea to show respect to the ASGARD SUPREME COMMANDER

    I don't think he has genuine respect for anyone except for No. 1. That's Kinsey.
    Yes, I really do look like (a younger) Daniel. Don't believe me? Look for yourself.

    Given what a mess he's made of himself (even the NID doesn't like him anymore, and that's about as low as you can go), I don't think he even respects himself. He just wants power.

    I actually liked this episode. It reminded me of the
    movie Thirteen Days.

    Why, on the 'british SG1 mag and dvd collection' at least, why in the subtitles is maybourne called hacker and not maybourne?

    And wealth, I suspect. Lots and lots and lots of wealth. Just to see if money really can buy happiness.

    It also helps to have an "all star" cast And I love that they brought in that diskette from "Chain Reaction"
    I loved the 'new' presidents face when he was being first briefed... "Your pulling one on me arn't you.."

    BTW what chain reaction diskette??

    Yes he did.. and i loved him telling 'kinsey' lets give them the benefit of the doubt.

    At the end of Chain Reaction Oneil stuffs a copy of the "incriminating" evidence on kinsey from his computer in his pocket, and thats the last we see of it till this ep. In this ep Woolsey goes to Hammond who gives him a copy and woolsey gives it to Hayes.

    I'd forgotten about that little time bomb myself until it rematerialised in this ep!

    Interesting that it was powerful enough to get Kinsey to take the heat off Hammond and get him reinstated - but apparently not sufficient to deter him from his continuing efforts to get control of the Gate Programme.

    Somehow, I doubt that he's forgotten they have it. I can only assume, then, that he has come to the assumption that they wouldn't dare risk exposing him (and his shady backers) in case they expose the entire Stargate Programme in the process. Now that would be messy.

    Of course, Lord Henry of Hayes may well have the disk - but there isn't really a lot he can do about it. Well, not yet anyway...

    Kinsey is an arrogant SOB and wouldnt let that stop him and I love the banter between the Pres and Kinsey in Lost City.

    I found Kinsey's argument that Carter and O'Neill had feelings for each other rather amusing and I got the impression that he only came up with that theory right then and there because he thought the president would be less than impressed about their 'inappropriate' feelings. Fortunately, he's argument was pretty bad. He barely convinced me and I'm a shipper.

    I'm not saying I agree, or disagree with the whole Sam&Jack "issue" but I do wonder if the pro-ship PTB were using this ep to send a message....
    I also got the feeling that there was a subtle message being sent and that as Kinsey said, you just need to "read between the lines" to see their 'relationship' is there.

    I've never liked clip shows, and when I realised this was one, I wasn't expecting much. However, I was very suprised that I really enjoyed this episode despite having two new faces mostly carrying the story. The new president is awesome and I'm glad to see Woolsey coming over to our side, albeit reluctantly. I didn't notice the clips too much and the plot was convincing and interesting. I have to agree with those who said it was the Best.Clip Show.Ever.
