Meteor Shower.

Happens to hit all the communication satellites and that one Navy Battle group.

Made bright lights appear over Antarctica too.

I can't remember, was that actually the explanation from the episode where that billionaire had figured everything out including having satellite photos of the battle?

I think it was a throwaway line in the episode it happened saying it was a meteor shower.

This is how you communicate with a fellow intelligence: you hurt it, you keep on hurting it, until you can distinguish the posts from the screams.

drat they made Ben Browder's character a straight up war criminal, that's harsh. It clearly wasn't his fault and he was given bad information but he still pulled the trigger on a bunch of refugees. I'm surprised the Air Force was on board!

if the main Stargate timeline wasn't already propped up by plot armor and a dozen other dead end timelines/parallel universes, 2001 is honestly better than anything we could hope for in 2020

In one of the last few episodes I watched, the President closed all state borders and shut down air travel because 3000 people had an unknown virus.

Introducing him at the offworld site to Captain Sheffield or whatever rank it was was a better moment than Carter saying she could MacGuyver up a solution to something.

Also missed opportunity after Shrek came out to incorporate the song "Chulak is a happy place"

"the United States is officially under quarantine", retrospectively one of the most unrealistic moments in the show. I also think this was the last episode we got to see Don S. Davis

e: also impressed they got Louis Gosset Jr. and CSM err I mean William B. Davis in the Prior makeup

Wow, I've never heard of that movie. Is that TNG episode where Geordi is trapped with a Romulan just a copy of that movie?

They have a similar premise but I wouldn't call the TNG episode a copy. It's more that they're both a sci-fi "enemies learn to be friends" (though the TNG staff really should have come up with a different title.)

I'd strongly recommend seeing the movie btw.

SG-1 has a season 7 episode also called Enemy Mine" and it's pretty much the same thing with a minor twist.


Edit ...just realized this is the stargate thread not star trek so y'all probably knew that
