    As for the gun part, "Greg" couldn't have shot himself. He grabbed the 9mm pack, looked inside, took one 9mm handgun out, threw it on the floor.

    After having been hit by Sheppard's P90, he fell with his hand next to the 9mm. He takes it, then aims (quite well, might I add) at Sheppard, shooting and missing, until he hits Shep. in the arm.
    Guns ARE hard to handle. For someone who doesn't know anything about terran technology, he learned QUITE fast how to use a handgun accurately.

    As for Weir, Teyla, and Ford... Well, this WASN'T their episode. The episode was made to develop Sheppard and McKay. And I must say, it was very well done. McKay's arrogance was shot down by the constant waiting in the supply ship. Not to mention, his arrogance was thrown aside when he faced "Greg" one on one.

    Go McKay!

    Maybe they could add in another scene where he does shoot himself.

    That would be preferable, seeing as how "Greg" takes it out so clumsily, without any visible knowlege of how to hold the thing (he holds it by the connection between the barrel and the handle, from the top).

    All of a sudden, he just seemed to analyse the gun, take it into one hand and start shooting with it. Though, I think it was good to show he doesn't know that the guns have limited physical ammo (clips).

    I think this has just become my fave episode of the season (so far, anyway). McKay and Sheppard are my two fave 'main cast' characters, and this was such a great episode to see these characters develop. I loved how not-Nyan (took me about half the episode to figure out why he looked so familiar!) realized how much McKay has changed; that he did want to go out there and fight. How different from the geeky arrogant scientist we met on Stargate SG-1!

    I LOVED THIS EPISODE!!!!

    MCKAY AND SHEPPARD ARE SOOO COOL! I love them both so much, especially together!!

    And I loved that they brought the bugs into it!! It could suggest something very intersting about them....maybe they'll become more important later!!!

    i really enjoyed this episode. the explosion at the end could have been better.

    i was wondering though, how did ford and teyla know they were going to a desert planet (desert camo gear). i reckon it could've been from the ancients archive.

    I like "Greg". Let's go with Greg.

    I was actually kinda hoping that it was Nyan, and they were finally clearing up the problem of where he's been for the past 5 years, but it wasn't.

    And the glowy things. I'm willing to go with them being related to the Prodigy glow-bugs, not just a rehash.

    Anyway, Greg was very cool. The fights between Sheppard and him were well put together. I don't think he worked out the gun to quickly. Guns are obvious. He didn't know what it was at first, but then he saw Sheppard firing a bigger one at him and thought 'Hmm...'. The trigger part should be a give-away too.

    McKay was his excellent self again. I was so happy when he showed up, and really felt for him when Nyan (I'm gonna call him that) killed himself. He acted that scene very well.

    Speaking of acting, young Lieutenant Ford was a bit over-enthusiastic with his first line to Weir. It was terrible. He sounded so urgent, yet Weir was so calm. And so what if Weir wasn't in it all the time, when it's an "out in the field" episode she's the Hammond character, and Hammond sometimes only showed up once of twice during an episode.

    It was poor Teyla who got to do nothing this time around.

    Just a comment on handguns.

    I'm an expert shot with a rifle (not being self important, I have the certificates to prove it). I have trouble hitting the board side of a barn with a handgun and I know how to shoot them. They are hard weapons to be accurate with and require a fair bit of training to understand. Even when you do know where your hand goes and that you are supposed to pull a trigger.

    Question. Did anyone see Greg flip a safety? Was this thing supposedly stored with the safety off?

    I'm pretty sure he must have knocked the safety off when he threw it down (he grabbed it, but when he threw it down he might have flipped it)

    If not, well... The handguns aren't made for "safety" when in hostile territory. If they pull out their sidearms, it's probably because they NEED to, due to the P90 being empty of broken. So they need quick reaction time (every split second counts against the Wraith)

    Did anyone else notice that the Wraith found the shield button in the Puddle Jumper something that has never been shown before and at the very end there was hardly any mention made of it ???? Hope they come back in another episode and sort out the eventual exploration of the giant weapons platform!

    Umm, Sheppard says at the end "You can drive", "assuming you can lower the shield."

    The shield wasn't lowered during all of that time..

    Must be a small solar system. 15h with a PJ, and I believe they said that the planet was on the other side of the solar system. so the solar system must be around 7.5 lighthours in radius... "big"

    Where was it established that Puddle Jumpers travel at light speed when they are not passing through a stargate? I'm not always great at picking up minute details.

    I'm getting really sick of my threads constantly being closed down.

    I'll be watching this episode tonight.

    On a scale of 1-10 how good was it?

    Good episode. Poor Nyan. I too wish it could have really been Nyan. It would have been a nice way of clearing up what he's been doing since season 3. Then there's Rasta Wraith (nice dreadlocks buddy). I like Shep and McKay's interaction. Those two play well off of each other. Oh and Ford looks nice in the no sleeves t-shirt. I wasn't expecting the Prodigy bugs and I kept expecting them to start turning pyscho. I liked the energy bar scene a lot. They were like pigeons at the park. I love Shep's "You've got to be kidding me" after Rasta Wraith got back up after being practically blown up.

    Because he had something to eat before he got shot therefore he’s body regenerated quickly now you know what ancients were up against.

    My fault, if the galaxy is 15h wide, then it should be 7.5 lighthours at most. 0.5c is about max you can do without frelling up the time-relativity.
