I Coulda Been a Contender
5 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode could have been a 9 or 10 if not for the writers'/producers' insistence on showing global conflicts as silly arguments between equivalent nations.

On Earth, there really is good and evil. That is, to people who understand the difference between the U.S. and Hitler's Nazi Germany or the USSR.

It's yet another defeat for Earth at the hands of the Ori. This time, SGC underestimates the power of a satellite given to a less advanced planet by the Ori. Sam says it should be easy to destroy the satellite.

Nope.

The satellite takes everything Prometheus can throw at it, then it slices through Prometheus' advanced shields like they aren't there.

The other problem with the episode is Captain Pendergast. He's a weak commander who is good at surrender and abandoning ship. If he had fired on the satellite as soon as P exited hyperspace, the P would have won the day without damage or casualties.

Is he a hero? Nope. He's an incompetent, weak boob.
