    Default That was not 600-700 people they rescued.

    So I guess we can just assume that the rest of them were abandoned by the heroes at the end to perish under a hail of dart shots and/or be collected for culling.

    Wow, I guess they should have listened to evil "I don't trust them" guy after all.

    Unfortunately, it appears that way.

    If Jervis was alive, he would have said, "I told you so".

    I'm going to guess that an extra costs more than 1 buck per person.

    Special effects would cost just as much (more probably) and add a long time to the post production

    Didn't they only save the Balarans and not the rest of the original inhabitants. Or did I miss something?

    Ha. When I was watching it I was thinking "(sigh) Oh good they got away. Wait a minute. What about the rest of them."
    Our hero's did the best they could but overall they would have to count this as a mission failure, unless the wraith simply decided to retreat and leave the village alone.
    I still thought it was a great episode though.

    Not to mention you have to get clothes for all of them, since todays modern fashion simply won't do. At least the show is not so bad in terms of realism that you have a wraith walking around in a Ralph Lauren shirt and wearing Guess jeans.

    I would, I'm sure a lot of stargate fans would volunteer just for a chance to be shown. Heck they did that for Monty Pythons Holy Grail, they walked to a local uni and said "hey, who wants to be in our film" and used them for the big fight scene at the end.

    As for costumes, they could use much less detailed ones for people at th back of crowds, or reuse older costumes, or even reuse the same costumes for different shots.

    They could show the same people running through the gate again and again. That wouldn't cost anything.

    Retreat? McKay rigged the hive to explode and Beckett vented his "turn Wraith into human retrovirus" through the hive for good measure.

    Yes it would. Longer working hours, more film stock etc...

    First off, "they could HAVE", not "could of".

    Second, realistic digital actors cost a lot more than random extras at close range.

    Third, I think we should just all assume that McKay *somehow* accidentally caused a build up when he disabled the weapons on the Hive and seconds after they went through the gate, the Hive exploded and all the Darts fell out of the sky for no apparent raisin.

    And then the villagers ate up all that raisin while they waited for Shep's return.

    It wouldn't cost anything to take out the line about there being 600 to 700 people in the villiage, except the cost of paying attention of course. It could have been done at any one of a number of stages. The initial script, on set when the thing was being shot, in editing.

    As it stands now, it seems as if they saved about 10% of the people in that villiage if you're generous, leaving the rest of them to deal with the hiveship they enraged.

    For some reason I got the impression that the only people they were taking through the gate were the people from the mine. So a lot less than 600-700.
    Guess I'll have to go watch it again?

    jap, i think too its all about the money. Well, the main persons were the outsiders and ok, some of the village s administrators. But its right that there should have been more people around. Nevertheless, it was a good episode .

    no, they only took a handful of people through, so, not sure about the 600-700 people in the village... i mean, the wraith ship above probably culled them.
