    Default Prehistoric Monster

    kinda looked like a t-rex / rancor

    glad they had that in there, always wanted to see something similar to a dinosaur in Stargate, you'd think that 1 planet would be covered in dinosaurs in the galaxy, but nope.

    closest thing they mentioned about that before was in an Atlantis season 1 episode when Teyla, Sheppard and Ford were coming through the gate claiming a t-rex chased them, but we never saw it.

    Personally, I had no problem with it. After all the hoopla over the thing, I found it hilarious how short a scene it was in.

    I still don't know why Scott still needed to shoot at the creature when he was 2 feet from the event horizon. Someone call the SPCA!

    Yeah, we called Scott out on this immediately after it happened:

    "Why's he shooting at it? What the hell did that do?!"

    "****ing nothing. What an idiot"

    well i understand why he shot at it, to keep it at bay and he didn't know how fast it was if it was gonna attack or snap.

    He could have just ran... I don't see it fitting through the gate
    This isn't Atlantis?
    I don't think so.
    If this is not the Lost City…then where is it?

    I can't understand why people are saying it looked like a T-Rex,it looked nothing like one, it's walking on all fours for a start!

    Rancor was the first thing that came to mind when I saw it.

    If I saw that thing and I had a gun I damn sure am gonna shoot it before it shoots fire out of its eyes at me or something.
    Would be funny if it were an actual intelligent being and it was just saying hi, but better to be on the safe side

    It was definitely reminiscent of one.

    There have been theories that earth dinosaurs shared more genetic resemblance to a chicken than a reptile. T-rex was actually a super giant chicken that laid eggs and it's feathers have long decomposed for any fossil evidence. I want to see a giant chicken!

    How absurd. Their physiology is entirely different.

    how was scott to know that the creature couldnt fit through the gate, certain creatures can dislocate their parts to fit through things. shooting it slowed it down, simple as that

    Your momentum is carried across the event horizon, you cant squeeze yourself in there. Once your head is through, you cant control the limbs left behind, it just doesnt make sense.

    Hmm, if you stick your head first, like sticking your arm in to keep the gate open, do you slowly fall forward and pass through or do you lose your head after 38 minutes?

    The 'ammo use' thread died awhile ago (I looked and didn't resurrect it) but it was a prime example of an opportunity for ammo conservation. It was only a few bursts buts that's enough.

    I'm watching SGA Seige P1 now and Sheppard actually fired at the T-Rex back through the wormhole he just travelled through. That's worse idiocy IMO!
