    Flak guns would be way too difficult to get through the gate, especially when they have the rail guns which are much more effective.

I'm not really sure which one to choose on it, I know not to use the 480 setting, and obviously my tv only plays 720, but what if i set it to 1080? would the quality degrade? i cant rly notice a difference when i set it higher but maybe one who is more knowledgeable could tell me what im missing?

    We know that there were at least six, but possibly more when they first arrived.

    What i don't get, is why the have to get crappy nukes from the genaii. If earth has a ZPM why don't they have earth send atlantis a couple of ICBM's.

    Because they dont have the ZPM now, they had it a few minits while they powerd up the gate, and then probably took it right away to power up the daedalus to send it to atlantis. And also, Atlantis has no way of contacting earth in the first place to ask them to send anything.

    the first shot of the jumper bay showed 4 straight ahead and the nose of one off to the left and since there were two in each row, one on top of another there are probabky two to the left meaning six. also for as big as atlantis is, 6 jumpers doesnt seem like very many, there are probably more elsewhere in the city

    I usually don't post questions in ep threads before I've read the entire thread but having just fought my way through all of Moebius...

    Is that thing with inoculating people with the Ancient gene new? Because if not I'd really like to know why they didn't do that for the entire Atlantis crew.
    It's possible Everret explained it, I had major difficulties understanding the character. And boy, what an obnoxious guy! There was absolutely no reason for him to be so antagonistic - and then turn into Mr. Nice and Sweet all of a sudden. What brought that turnaround about?

    I was rather confused by the fight scenes, couldn't really distinguish in all the fireworks what was happening.

    All in all a mediocre ending to an otherwise pretty fab season.

    I wondered the same thing, Feli. The inoculation thing was introduced in Hide & Seek. Beckett had been working on it back in Antarctica, but wasn't allowed to conduct human trials. Rodney was his guinea pig. There was a comment about it only working on 40-something percent of people who got the injection.

    Apparently inoculation study continued in Antarctica. As it was explained to me by someone here, what probaby happened is that Col. Jackhole's team was comprised only of those who were successfully inoculated.

    I was kinda expecting the Daedalus throughout the episode, kinda disappointed that it didn't show up.

    But I loved the Seige bit, with the darkening of the city and the shooting of the flares. With all the firefight it kinda looked like the Battle of Britain.

    Can't wait to see how the Atlantis team get out of this sticky situation.

    You should have heard my reaction when my brother and father watched this episode. First yelling at the cliff-hanger and then lots of cursing when they found out they had to wait a while for Season Two.

    The Seige part I & II were pretty good episodes. Why did we have to see the Genii again? IMHO they've already beaten that dead horse, and it's just the 1st season. I'll admit at the beginning of the season I was really starting to hate Atlantis, now it's starting to grow on me. One thing that really bugs me in SGA is the fact that all the military men besides Sheppard are always portrayed so one-dimensionally. As someone who's actually served in the armed forces, I would never want someone like Sheppard on my team. Following orders is very important in the field, even if you don't agree with your CO. Teyla always seems so flat to me, I wouldn't miss her at all if she met her demise. Poor Ford!! Loved the interaction between Mckay and Zelenka, and that whole stimulant scene. Favorite line: Carson: "Okay, Snippy! I'll get you another stimulator." Overall a very good way to end the season!

    Bates isn't one-dimensional, actually I quite like him. He has his own set of rights and wrongs. I thought he was justified in his concerns about Teyla going to the new Alpha site, Sheppard should have listened to him.

    Have they now? In what way... I don't feel like we've seen the end of Genii annoyance yet... besides it's not like we saw Kolya again... it was a different Genii

    But doesn't that make Sheppard less one-dimensional...?? If he said, "Yes, m'am, no, ma'am all the time", wouldn't that make him more one-dimensional. So he's not the perfect soldier... The fact that he is flawed and obviously has issues makes him a lot more interesting in my book. It creates conflict... increases drama... not ideal in real life perhaps... but makes for exciting television...

    I simply don't see the Genii as formidable enemies. Why would they be so against the Atlantis team, especially if they have the same enemy as powerful as the wraith? Even the System Lords were willing to go against Anubis! It just isn't a very good way of running defense.

    I like Sheppard as a character. All the characters are flawed, that's what makes them interesting, and he doesn't have to be perfect to be a good soldier, I just wouldn't want him in real life is all. But you're right, he is good for the series

    Flak guns arn't that big, if they can fit a rail gun through they could fit a flak gun. Hell, they could bring a few phalanx ciws through, would have been much better than some crappy 50 cal, plus they are automatic, which suprised me about the railguns, you need some dude on them to fire? Rail guns are cool though. They should have brought some nuke SAM's as well. I am very suprised that after hearing atlantis is about to get smashed by 3 hive ships, that they only sent 6 nukes? I would want as many nukes as i could get my hands on.

    Asteroid attack doesnt make sense, why not just send some darts or scout darts on remote control, taking asteroids would cost time and resources,and why wernt the nuke mines able to be remotly detonated, instead of just some crap "proximity" thing that could be set off by anything.

    This was a good season ender, yet after the lack of a cliffhanger in moebius p2, this cliffhanger (which will be part 3) suprised me a little. All together it was okay, but not brilliant.

    The Eye and The Storm were a better 2 parter, and The Eye was the best ep of the season. How long till the next ep is shown?

    And whats with the small reply count? Has this not been shown in the US?

    The US is only up to "Letters From Pegasus" - which is on tomorrow night. We haven't caught up to the rest of the world yet.
