I was going to cite the TNG episode myself, but you beat me to it.Originally Posted by Bobthespirit
I was a little confused at McKay's attitude switch. First he asks to Teyla how can they force these people to change their rituals after being there only a little over an hour. Then he tells Weir that the people can be moved to Atlantis if they it turns out Atlantis can use the ZPM. Then Weir has to remind Rodney that they can't go around uprooting people all over the place and changing their way of life. I guess Rodney's desire for the ZPM outweighed his better judgement.
Personally, I think McKay says Zed PM once to irk Sheppard then goes back to saying ZPM.
Teyla shows good judgement but is ignored (uh, maybe we shouldn't take away their only defense, especially without asking?)
I don't get why Sheppard didn't explain why he had to destroy the Wraith bracelet, and that it was a good thing for him to do that.
I enjoyed how Ford made McKay deal with the kids before rescuing him.
It was nice that McKay got those kids under cover before his last try at fixing the shield.
Ares sure got the village on his side quick. Didn't anyone want to side with Keras? BTW, I thought the actor, Courtenay Stevens, was excellent.
I recognized the female elder of the other village, Julie Patzwald, as someone I'd seen on The Dead Zone ("Enemy Mind").
I thought it was a good stand alone episode.
