    The ‘Rancor’ creature was even more alien that our tall blue friends. How ironic that she criticized that more.

    We don’t know the whole part of those ‘dust’ aliens reproductive cycles. As for the aliens from ‘Water’. For all we know they used water along with dead skin and hair remnants from the crew to reproduce, or even the ship’s power. It was a mystery.

    Destiny did have a repository for the energy from a star, its energy banks. Both the force field and the hull were protecting the inside. We have no idea how the shields or the material that Destiny is made of works. So it isn’t unrealistic, it’s just unknown. I shouldn’t have to say it but most sci-fi works on the beyonder principle, where things happen beyond our understanding.

    Presumably the communication stones aren’t instantaneous just virtually instantaneous.

    Never the less Diane Turnshek was an informative guest that I’d like to hear from again.

    Thanks – enjoyed the podcast as always. It’s always fun with scifi science. Guest was good. I’m more of a language and history person myself (that’s why I love Daniel Jackson and would have liked more of the history/language in that series – it was often cut short by O’Neill :)
    Anyhow, next podcast with Ancient History sounds right up my street – will you talk about SG Ancient History in relation to “our ancient history”, e.g. Merlin, etc.?
    p.s any suggestion how I will cope with any new podcasts for 6 weeks :) – Then again, I might need a holiday (vacation) too.

    between SGU and former SG shows, Ancient History, there is no difference

    I was probably not very clear.
    Would love if the podcast related Fictional Ancient’s history to ‘Real word’ history maybe to discuss if SG’s take on history is ‘realistic’ in the same way as SG’s/Scifi’s take on technology is ‘realistic’ :)
    I mean, is it believable (or just fun to imagine) that Merlin came from Pegasus galaxy… I think it’s fun and sometimes interesting to think like this
    (Sometimes SG, maybe more SG1, is a bit ‘Erich von Däniken’ everything mythological/history on Earth is from the stars. But of course in SG1 this is also in reverse, people on other planets originated on Earth)
