Does Earth fight its alien adversaries in an ethical way? This week GateWorld’s Darren and David are talking about “just war” theory and the ethics of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis. Have our heroes done wrong, even committed atrocities, under the banner of defeating parasitic aliens and evil robots? Should these sorts of issues be explored on the show, or do they only get in the way of the action?
But first, we’ll recap all the Stargate news and site additions from the past week, and preview GateWorld’s very special video interview with “Janet Fraiser” actress Teryl Rothery!
