    Because it's what passes for character development on SGU?

It would be interesting to see Chloe create more relationships among the crew.
    I admire the wishful thinking

    But this is Stargate and the writers either don't know how to write female characters, or don't care enough about them to give them any meaningful airtime. It took them a good few seasons to "find" Sam, and the less said about the SGA women, the better.

    I remember an interview with the SGU female cast, with them praising the "strong, independent women" (or words to that effect), and look where they've ended up. Sure, there's an argument for Wray fitting the bill, especially now that she's not trying to take control for the IOA, but TJ and Chloe have been nothing (IMO) but the butt of the "women in SG" joke.

    . No , I do not think so. Ultimately she is loosing her personality and her consciousness is being altered. Although she is recently able to function at as a useful individual, despite her mutation , we do know that she is not always aware of what she was doing and as her condition progresses, the aliens may gain further control of mind. This possibility leaves the ship susceptible to attack.

    I kinda like the idea of Chloe completely under alien control going all evil and wreaking havoc on Destiny.

    Agreed. How many times in SGA or SG1 was someone taken over by aliens, only to be restored either that ep or 2 later..

    A secretary, she could have been Young's secretary. That would have actually worked. It would have made her useful until she started going blue. But either way I'm content with the direction Chloe is going.

    But I suppose it had to be written that way.
    I thought using Chloe was an appropriate risk on Young's part, and one which had been set up fairly well by the writers.

    We have been shown that her math skills have been developing. We have also seen that there is some sort of change going on with her person, both physically and mentally, and as such she has been "quarantined". If she had shown up without us seeing these developments (ie. she hadn't been locked up and she just walked on to the bridge and started to push buttons), then that would have been a bit too DeM.

    Young wouldn't place her on the bridge unless it was a very critical situation, in this case to save lives on the planet and potentially more lives back on Earth. What would have been interesting is if she HADN'T solved the problem and was doing something else...

    I like the way it's being dealt with - the A plot action takes up most of the screen time, the B plot does its thing, but there, lurking in the background, is this thing continuing to develop. It would feel slow if they focussed on it, but they don't so I'm content to have it play out in snippets here and there.
    This, this 100x this - alien Chole is scary and here new "super powers" should be labelled 'for use as last resort only', who knows what she's actually doing?

    Its like "oh shes kissing/shagging/flirting with Scott again - I don't care about this".
    It might be interesting to note that SGU is the first of the franchise that my mum likes, my dad has problems coping with story arcs and character development & stopped watching after the first couple of eps. I think that a lot of people here are towards his end of the spectrum. rather than my mum's.

    The only female character they did well was Wier, then they killed her. IMO SGA would have been a lot better with her staying around longer.
