    I can’t see Eli being anything like Col. Mitchell. This makes more sense to me:

    Daniel Jackson + McKay’s IQ = Eli

    Sara…

    Since you’re a long-time SG fan *and* familiar with Battlestar Galactica, I’m going to have to politely call B.S. on your claim to not know what “FTL” means in the sci-fi context. Destiny’s FTL drive is weird because it does not involve jumping to hyperspace. I don’t recall whether the series ever addressed why the Ancients apparently abandoned it.

    I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say that the reason Destiny can’t dial home is because it doesn’t have sufficient power. Nine-chevron dials require even more power than 8-chevron intergalactic dials, meaning *way* more even than a ZPM provides (and the Ancients had not yet developed even that when they built Destiny). Dialing home would require something the equivalent of another Icarus-planet.

    Rush is a great, fascinating, troubled and ambiguous character. As Col. Young repeatedly observes, he’s “a lotta work.” I watched the whole series when it was “new,” and now I’m currently half-way through the second season on Comet TV. Rush grows a bit, but he’s always dark and morally ambiguous.
