Is Narim hiding on Earth as Simon Wallis
16 March 2007 | by imdb-11071See all my reviews

Narim was a favorite re-curring character in the early Stargate Seasons. He was the first potential off-world relationship interest of Captain Samantha Carter - until she assumed the emotions of Jolinar. Tollana was destroyed by Anubus, his first significant blow to the allies of the Tauri. The actor has resurfaced in no less than 3 episodes of Atlantis as Simon Wallis... a scrappy poorly developed character. However, if the character came forward and confessed to be Narim... who holds technical knowledge too powerful for Earthlings to be entrusted. The Character could be promoted to Stargate Atlantis... where his significant-other is currently working {Yes, Dr. Weir for those who know your Atlantis episodes}... oh and Amanda Tapping is their too. Can anyone say relationship triangle... Nah well for the few remaining female fans..... But more importantly the Tollan in him can come forward with some technical expertise and solve some cool problems. YES.. TO THE PEGASUS GALAXY WITH NARIM!!
