    I'm getting the feeling that the Prodigy bugs have a future purpose in the series, simply to justify what the heck they were doing in the Pegasus galaxy.

    i thought the glowy bugs were cute..
    I'm so out of all the rest of the scripts now. McKay's going to go looking for a file and never come back now. "Yeah, I thought I saw it in the other room." Cut to Season Eight: "Yeah, he died! That McKay guy ..."

    Silly Gothann! Remember that one guy was like "The atmosphere is highly ionized?" Well I don't have the ep on me right now, but on SG-1, there was a similar situation on the planets.

    The only difference, is that the ones on SGA aren't hostile.

    I'd be amazed if the bugs were meant to have any significance beyond being a plot device.

    I loved this episode! Absolutely loved it.

    But then, with two of my favorite characters occupying the main story, how could I not?


    A tiny list of numerous things that made me laugh and/or smile at the same time:


    - Sheppard and McKay. Oh, the joys of the witty banter. It's like they've been going on missions forever.

    - "Don't let go of the controls!" Heh.

    - Their mutual efforts in convincing Weir to let them investigate the Wraith ship.

    - "I can't hear you threatening to suck the life out of me 'til you hit the button on the radio."

    - "You've got to be kiddin' me!"


    And then there were the more serious stuff which I equally enjoyed; particularly JF's and DH's performances throughout.

    Hewlett was so great when he was reacting to Gaul having aged and when he heard the gun go off. And all the little reaction shots in between. I've said it before, but I'll say it again: He has such an expressive face.

    And Flanigan was just awesome; playing mind games with the Wraith and challenging him the way that he did.

    The only thing that I wasn't so fond of in this episode were the Glowy Alien Insects. (I know it's already been brought up, but I want to play too, so... ) Their remarkable resemblance with the insects from Prodigy kind of annoyed me. Are they supposed to be related to them in some way? Because otherwise they don't make much sense to me, except for them proving very useful in blowing up the almost impossibly hard-to-kill Wraith.

    And I still think that Ford is in need of some serious character development. It's gotten better, but nowhere near enough, IMO.

    Oh, and McKay to the rescue! That was excellent.

    Gentle plea for people to remember that while past eps of Atlantis don't need spoiler warnings in ep discussions, future eps do. If it hasn't aired yet, it's definitely a spoiler and should be tagged as such. Thankies.

    And I still say the bugs were stupid. Sorry, and I don't care if there are some nitpicky little differences, they're still too similar for my tastes. What's the point? Sure, some bug designs may be universal, but if you have a chance to make them visibly, obviously different, why not do so?

    What was with the Wraith spending all his time killing them, anyway? Is he really that simple?

    Good episode, but I was REALLY dissapointed we didn't discover more. More tech the good guys get, the better. It'd have been cool if we went above the weapons station and discovered all it needed was a measly ZPM . It probably would need about 10............

    This really should be revisited at a later date, potenial alpha site.

    Another thought, how long would a wraith be able to feed of another wraith? Seeing as though they don't naturally age and the wraith 'suck your years away from you'. That wraith looked normal(the one that had been fed off).

    SGA is it's entirely own show. Having an alpha site would just inch it closer and closer to being like SG1- something that many (including myself) don't want to see happen.

    Hey, did anyone notice a new Stargate Atlantis episode aired this week?

    PIGGY'S USELESS OPINION
    of 'The Defiant One'

    Now, this was cool. Entertaining from beginning to end, and lots of Wraith action. My only nitpick would have to be that it was said that the Ancients probably made their technology gene dependant after they encountered the Wraith, which doesn't make sense - what then about the outpost on Earth? Hm? Hmmmmm?

    Character-wise, this one was big on Sheppard and McKay, while everyone else had very limited screen time. Good action involving Sheppard, and nice character moments for McKay. It's nice to have episodes from time to time that showcase the individual characters. When is Lt. Ford gonna get one? He's the one who needs it the most.

    And now, for some Random observations!
    - This episode puts to rest any doubts that the Wraith were indeed the enemy who defeated the Ancients.
    - Sheppard thinks there's something different about this particular Wraith beside it having recently fed. Wonder if this will be elaborated upon later?
    - What about that Ancient defense satelite? Is it still functional?
    - The glowy bugs looked like the ones from 'Prodigy', but I guess they're not the same since the Wraith was able to squish them in his hands and all.
    - The deaths of the two Red Shirts give the Atlantis Expedition Team Death Count a grand total of 5. Unless I'm forgetting someone.
    - Suicide. Yikes.
    - Just after I left work today it started snowing. By the time I got home it was winter. I am unhappy now.

    Yep, good episode. It will hold me over until the next one, at least. (Hmm... Which episode airs next week?) Party on.
