My only question is whether the novel is canon or not?

Cause at any point the TPTB could decided, “we think it would be better to do it this way, good thing we didn’t air that scene in the pilot”.

Well, I meant in general the character-specific stuff not just whatever the scene with Young is.

So while I’d like to read it for more insight, since it’s not canon than I’d rather not.

If stories don’t affect/connect the others in the show, than that’s just fan fiction to me.

But very interesting maybe they’re be a bit more strict with character continuity with this series.

Little note to the author. The three-part episode actually totals around 2 hours and 8 minutes, not three hours as you mentioned.

But I think the biggest advantage of reading a book would be that you have to use your imagination to ‘picture’ the story. After already having seen a tv episode this process is… Read more »

Is there nothing you guys won’t give a positive review to regarding Stargate? This ‘book’ is silly at best.

It’s okay not to like something related to Stargate; it doesn’t make your little website any less entertaining or informative. I’ve seen this kind of review all to often on here, be it an episode or merchandise. I knew before reading that you’d have some sort of positive reaction to the book, as with… Read more »

: A largely negative review of SGU‘s “Life,” published simultaneously with this review.

Also, if you don’t like the way we do things, you are welcome to start your own Web site. Our reviewer (a Stargate fan) liked the book (a Stargate novel). Why should that surprise you?

@the_big_bad You should listen to some of the podcasts of Darren and David. They usually have a good mixture of positive and negative reviews on subjects relating to Stargate although I have to admit that I sometimes would like a little less diplomacy (without being insulting of course). @Mrja84 Regarding Canon, I remember Sabine C. Bauer (one of the authors of the novels) telling a story at a convention about being at the studio and actually talking ideas with the producers. So, I am rather sure there is a close cooperation. I also would assume that this will be the… Read more »
