    Howdy gnarvaja,

    >>

    >>

    I guess that would be the same as "Stargate SC - 1" ... thats what it's called over in .au

    Excellent show ...

    What makes good sci-fi ???, i guess, authenticity, believable plots etc ... Not the easiest of things to do.

    I have a problem though, with the type of show where, where ever they go ... the humans always think "their OK, every one else is an alien" (grin)

    The better ones don't seem to do that ...

    a top time-wast, isn't it

    On what planet is this? They might be starting to film the second season, but they certainly haven't aired any of it.

    Wrong on two counts. There is a show Stargate SG-1; I doubt very much that it's renamed to Stargate SC-1 for AU.
    Stargate Atlantis is a different show.

    Thanks Harry Kuhman, for pointing that out, it was bugging me...

    StarGate - and I think, the #1 was the fact that it was the "first" stargate found, not sure on this ( I dont follow SG1, but a friend does ), it could also be, the #1 was designated because it ( possibly ) was the first stargate that was actually working, and could still "connect" to the "other" stargates. If I recall correctly, they dont even know how it works, or if it broke, how they would fix it - the premise, on the idea, that a "stargate" could just "dissapear", and not be usable anymore ( I think )

    This show, following from his acting career in McGyver, has, probably, put the name "Richard Dean Anderson" in the anals of TV Career Actors, for years to come... ( IMHO )

    As for Balltestar Galactica...

    Sorry... This one does fly for me...

    Considering I grew up with the "original" Battlestar series, I have to point out a small fact... actually, a few....

    The boy had a robot dog, called "boxie" - not in the new series...

    Starbuck was a MAN, not a girl - so, either the new series is "playing" off the idea this lady is his "daughter", funny, "Starbuck" in the old series was more of the "one night stand" kinda guy, so "daughter" doesnt fly... OR... between the old series and the new series, Starbuck got a MAJOR sex-change...

    But, these are my views, your milliage may vary, and, no expressed, or implied, warrantee... ( you break it, you buy it )

    The show producers elected to add the SG-1 to the title. Their motive is not just using the Stargate name is unclear to me, but maybe they were just trying to distinguish it from the movie. The SG-1 term comes from the designation of the "team" of people who go through the gate. Richard Dean Anderson's team of 4 people was the first team as was designated SG-1. In the stories there are other teams as well, designated in increasing numbers (a patch showing SG-22 was seen on a recent show). Sometimes the actors cross over into the SG-1 stories, but usually the show just focus on the SG-1 team that it is named for. Starting season 8, RDA was promoted and is no longer part of the team, but somehow they still come up with an occasional need for him to go through the gate.

    Not an expert, I dont watch it much, but... here is my best shot...

    Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis, are two sperate "stargates" ( a stargate is a large "ring" with cryptic hyroglyphics around the outside of it, possibly from the alien civilization who created them, and of which, we dont know who they are, or where... possibly, when one of there worlds was dieing, they used a stargate to escape death? But, we dont know this )

    The premise of the shows is to use a "stargate" to connect with another "stargate" - to traverse space, posibly even time - to the other location. I.e. SG-1 can "connect" to "atlantis" and people, or things, can be "transported" to both locations and back...

    From what I know about the shows; they can find "new" stargates, and explore them, or use "old" "known" stargates to do things there... Its kinda like the whole "Star Trek" thing, except they dont need a ship to go there. From my "vast" non-knowledge of the shows, I am not even sure if they can "control" the stargates, or if they can "randomly" just connect where they want, without "human" intervention, thus adding a sense of "new-ness" to the show; e.g. "Where are we going today?"

    From what I can tell, Stargate SG1 located the Stargate Atlantis, and now has "spawned" off a second series on its own... Again, kinda like the Star Trek - Next Generation and Star Trek - Deep Space 9

    Correct me if any of my details are wrong, I dont propose to be a "follower" of SG's
