    Eli knows that Rush framed Young, right? Rush then gets left behind. I wonder what effect that'll have on Eli.

    Sgt. Greer might be my favorite character on this show.

    He's obviously got some mental issues, but at times he almost has this zen-like quality to him. I didn't like him at first, but yeah, he's growing on me.

    When Greer was telling the cook to "mash 'em, boil 'em", I was expecting him to follow that up with "stick 'em in a stew." :)

    Agreed. His character and the actor portraying him are both getting better with each episode. Playing a crazy soldier isn't tough, but playing one that's barely in control (but *is* in control) is, and I'm impressed with how he's walking that line.

    so everyone believes that Rush is going to be the evil villain of the series? I really didn't think that would be the case. I would have assumed that some other alien entity would be the villain.

    I always assumed Rush to be a little rough to deal with, but at heart he would do the right thing...but that could be me 10+ years of SG watching :)

    Rush's pragmatism can be off-putting, and he's certainly ascerbic, but I don't think he's going to be the main antagonist of the show. I do think he'll wind up back on board -- no way have we seen the last of him yet.

    So is anybody thinking that Destiny brought them to this planet because of the ship's presence there?

    We don't need Rush anymore; after all, they're building a new "Rodney" with the old chair V1.0.

    I don't see how they'd be able to make it without Rush.

    Eli's ability to read Ancient is very limited, and I wonder how many of them would do any better. Plus there's Rush's mind in itself. Is there anyone else who can do as much with the ship as he can? He TOLD the ship they were in trouble and needed stuff, and it RESPONDED.

    I just don't know how they'll handle his return or his agreeing to step back into his previous role.

    That was sort of my whole problem with the episode. Up until now every jump has been for a specific need for the ship and its crew. Now maybe I just read it on one of the boards, but I thought the idea was the ship was purposefully stopping because it knew it could get the necessary items from the planet. This one served as a plot point but they didn't get anything so either there was something else on the planet they needed or the stargates are opening only if it meets a certain criteria. Though I guess it could be to investigate the ship but to me that would be a stretch since there is nothing to tell them to go look here or why the gate opened.

    That would have been more Eli than anyone else, I think.

    BTW, with the departure from the ship of Rush, isn't Eli the Head Geek in Charge now? The Col Carter, Rodney McCay of the ship.

    Did he tell the ship what they needed, or did the ship figure it out for itself? I think it's the latter.

    They don't need anyone onboard who can read Ancient. They simply import an expert via the communication stones as needed.

    He did tell the ship what they needed and on this episode the fact that they were testing those "potatoes" suggests that they needed food and he probably told the ship that.

    Rush is probably going to be back because otherwise why show him at the end of the episode? He'll probably get that ship going and use it to catch up with the Destiny.

    I think Destiny just stops at the next available Stargate no matter what the current passengers need.

    Nope....crew hated Rush, too, and, even if they think Young did something to him, I don't see them losing any confidence in him.

    It's an awfully big coincidence that the stargate on the planet just happened to be within 1 hours walking distance of the ship. Either it's stopping at every stargate it passes, or there was something else on the planet they could have used.

    The distance from the gate may have been a coincidence, but that doesn't mean that the ship wasn't the purpose of the stop. The Ancients probably would have brought some better form of planet-side transportation with them, so there's no reason for the ship to limit itself to thing within walking distance. We saw that on the very first planet, where resource was at the very edge of the walkable range.

    Meanwhile, the whole purpose of the ship's journey is exploration; and (as all good trekkies know ;) ) that includes discovering new civilizations. It's perfectly reasonable that the ship would stop for something as interesting as an alien spaceship, knowing that its passengers would probably want a look at it.

    if the ship is now making stops to help the people on board, then why the time limit?

    if it stops so they can explore the ship, why only give them a small amount of time to do it? it makes no sense...
