    FH: Thanks. Just as you can see I am better to brainstorm "tools" for other fan fiction writers. I like thinking on technologies, evolution of races and civilizations.

    They couldn't properly introduce a new race in SG:U as they were flying and flying and flying. So if SG:U could have been a planet based show then maybe they could interact with other races.

    SG:A was much better, but I have really missed a deeper presentation of the Wraith. When John became a bug or Teyla became a Wraith Queen, those storylines should have been 3-4-5 episodes long. They could have introduced different Wraith fractions, clans, flags, hive ship names or at least a few words in Wraith language. That could have created the athmosphere of the alien culture. I know it is hard to tell such things in 42-45 minutes as the audience won't be able to able to follow the stories if they skip one or two episodes, but they should not have gone to the other direction that all Wraith Hive ships were nameless and less important.... You know a new Goa'uld had all the historical referencese behind him or her, but a new Wraith? Nothing really. Maybe the walls were different in every Hive.

    One of the basic mistake was from the writers that they haven't named the Blueberrys. We (the audience) need such references. I hate when a race is not named properly. I believe the audience likes such little lore details. Even if they couldn't write these infos into dialogues, a few extra informations could have been added in official episode summaries.

    Then we reach the Origins - Catherine, where most of the most exciting background stories happened offscreen and behind closed doors for priviliged fans....

    Back to the mythology related questions: I have spawned a few ideas before.

    https://www.stargatecommand.co/forum...tml&k=b4ff8e7b

    There are so many lovely Ancient cultures on Earth, which were still not touched. Mahabharata in India, Tibet etc. Or we consider the existing ones: Unity (chrystals), Oannes (Nem and Omoroca), Giant Aliens (Quatzalcoatl), Salish, Unas etc. They have visited Earth, so if we would know what happened before or after the Ancients then the Goa'uld rise and fall then so many new stories could be told.

    Maybe I sound I am a bit obsessed with mythology, but that was the esssence of Stargate for me. Ancient cultures with a twist. I always wanted to see more "monsters", more active Egyptian or Viking civilizations, but they couldn't show too much for budget reasons. I don't want to change Stargate into a new Babylon 5 or Mass Effect or a space-Hercules or space-Xena, but what if all the mythological monsters were aliens on different planets, where a few people from Earth has gone to defeat then they returned to tell the legendary fights. So maybe these aliens are still there in the Milky way, maybe they were killed or isolated or saved or protected. As I said only our imagination is the limit.

    How would you feel about mythical monsters being alien animals? Like the Hydra is space monster version of the regenerating newt. Have the wargs be like space raptors.

    I still think we can distance ourselves from mythology but what if we get a race that has been directly influenced by the Alliance. I mean, we only get villages that worship Thor. What if we find an advanced civilization and we see the affects of their major religion surrounding the Asgard. I mean, it can't be easy finding out your god actually exists.

    The best thing is in Stargate that anything can happen. Any fan can create new "realities", so maybe my ideas or yours exist somewhere.

    Just continue to brainstorm. We started to talk about the continuation of Universe in the 2x20 thread, so if you have seen it, just join there. And welcome on SG:C as well.

    Oh thank you. It is really kind. Are you there as well? Please add me there. I have got 33 followers. Great power, great responsibilities.

    I try to "entertain" the people there, because the SG:C hasn't put too much effort into it:

    I did (follow you I guess = add?)

    I used to be active on that app when Origins aired but the only reason I came back was for the comics. SG:C hasn't put any effort that's true. I'm supposed to get my *founding member package* whatever that is for renewing my subsc.

    Ohh I meant to add me, so you can see what I am doing there. A few people added me yesterday, but I haven't seen an Unas amongst them. I don't know your username there either. :'(

    I have never received my digital copy of Catherine, so I haven't got too much expectations. The whole site feels so abadonned, like no management, no moderators, nothing. They have just setup some weekly articles series then they left the place alone. I wouldn't be surprised if it would be closed down shortly as this whole management style is suspicious and ridiculous.


    * * *

    So back to the Stargate.

    I would like to see a recurring civil setting, where our heroes could meet a galaxy wide tour company as more and more people are looking for adventure. This company (probably not based on Earth) would offer some escorted tours through the stargates into different worlds. Then they would make some trouble (like visiting some ruins) or they would enter into dangerous world, so they ask help from our heroes to fix or to rescue the people. I just imagined how funny it would be to see a brochure with planets and gate addresses. Then this recurring storyline could be turned into anything else : different races, different groups, different needs. Maybe one of the new main or recurring character could come from this "planet" if he or she would be an offworld Earth citizen. Maybe the whole tour company would have some dark secrets as they could be an operative to infiltrate different worlds for their goverment. So they would play a role similar to NID, but with a civilian twist.

    They were so obsessed with Rodney that they utterly and quite spectacularly missed the boat with this one. That ending when she looks at her hand... COME ON!! No follow-up, no nothing.... just more Rodney this and Rodney that.

    Well, from what I can gather, it is the 3 months extra on your paid year, a founding member patch and a founding member title as opposed to the Stargate Command All-Access - Airman/Captain/General/Ascended.

    Founding members are only paying members so if you were there from the start but couldn't "found", you continue to be a third class passenger.

    I'll be perfectly honest with you, I spent 1 minute or two looking for an ''Add friend button'' and gave up. If your platform is so crappy that it's not intuitive at all, I won't waste any more time on it. I'm also only there only for the comics and the occasional episodes I want to see, so I'll be gone soon enough again.

    Chaka-ZO: I couldn't find you with the search button. What a disgrace is this Stargate : Command. The whole app is a tragedy. It works completly differently on PC, tablet and mobile. It doubles up notifications, sometimes it let me know about my OWN posts... And I could even like my OWN posts?! Weird, amateurish, unprofessional.

    FH: You are right about the SG:C. They should provide something to entertain the fans daily. But seriously, why would anyone visit the site? For 6 comics which can be read in a day? There should be daily quizes (like episode scenes, quotes, pictures), just to convince people to visit this app... No news about any future projects, nothing. We need the borrow the "shame bell" from Game of Thrones.

    Honestly the whole "founding member" thing is just a lie. I doubt they will really do. And it is sad that people are more interested in a badge or a T-shirt instead of raising voice for the non-All-Access members. Or just to post some quality posts once or twice a week which can elevate and entertain the local, still believer fandom there before they just give up and leave this cursed platform.

    I'll look for you later... and you should look for a "Follow" button, which is the Add-friend button you would otherwise be looking for. It's a little like twitter and instagram. You follow people as opposed to "friend them" like on livejournal, though the message in the notifications will say "... added you as friend" and from there you can also click on their icon and then follow back, at which point the message in your notifications will change to "you are now friends".

    Did you search on the profiles page of the message feed because that search won't otherwise work. It's not ideal, I admit.

    And to think TopFan has also created the DC Universe app/website. I don't know, but they better step up their game cause Disney/Marvel won't be as forgiving if it doesn't work as advertised.

    They do have to up their game, and fast... and not just for all-access but for everyone. Even the free stuff needs to be taken care of because right now they are the laughing stock of the stargate community. They score really low on the satisfaction scale, even people who are all-access are less than pleased (and it's not just you).

    I think it'll be a while before they get that "founding member" thing in order, but it says as much in the FAQ that it will be delivered later in the year (probably halfway 2019 or something in their logic). I do think they'll go through with it.... eventually... but not just yet.

    And there are indeed a whole of people who re-enlisted cause of the promise of the patch, so their ploy certainly worked to keep people coming back, but as far as sticking up for non-access members.... Only a tiny, microscopic fraction of the people who have an account venture outside the episode part of the website/app. They don't know. They simply don't know, and most likely don't care either. And that's a shame.

    Accounts are made up of 95% airmen, and it's ridiculously easy to get from Airman to Captain in rank (unlike ranking up here) so 3/4 of the accounts simply doesn't care for anything but the streaming part of the app, and that includes not knowing about geo-restrictions.

    Plus, like I said, 95% of the accounts is located within the USA. They don't have to rush international expansion cause they are not there anymore or just not present at all. They have their primary audience. The rest is just baggage.

    It is a shame that people can be bribed and fooled so easily. Honestly it would cost them more to send out the gifts. 20 dollars for the lovely service, then they will spend 1-2 dollars of posting the gifts.
