In the episode shadow play how did the kelownans know what weight system the US uses like I’m assuming that’s not something your going to tell someone when you meet them for the first time?
What's on your mind?
Why did the Tau'ri avoid on trying to make their own Stargates or Spacegates or Supergates?

On a eventually, where you are stranded on a off-world. On which of the off-world would you prefer to be stuck on for the time being?
Because Jack was stuck on Endora for 100 days and John was stuck on Cloister during 6 months.
I don't remember much else from the episode, except the team find a seemingly human woman on some mission - and when examining her on Atlantis they discover her body is "perfect" in a cellular way - absolutely no minor imperceptible scarring or damage that all human beings have from simply the gentle wear & tear of normal life - no evidence of any skinned knees or anything - so that fact clues them into the fact that she wasn't actually human, but was an fabricated avatar or being made to communicate with humans - I think..
Any clue as to what episode I'm talking about? - I know it was Atlantis - I think an earlier season, but not sure - I'm trying find that specific scene for a presentation.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
I was wondering, how good are the parenting skills of some people. For example on the episode Unending. Where Vala got pregnant by Daniel and she had given birth to a infant or infants. Although, they felt that was unthinkable to raise children on a ship.
So they created a child friendly bassinet equivalent of stasis pod.
So when Teal'c was inside the force field, he would be carrying the bassinet with him.
Vala would be insufferable, and she would love them. Not entirely sure of Daniel. As it not his infant / infants on a technicality.
Same thing about the Destiny Expedition from Common Descent, Epilogue.
So I wanted to start a conversation about how Goa'uld are described in the "Gender" section on their pages. I don't think "Agender" is the correct descriptor and I say this as an agender person myself. I also think that "Male" or "Female" personality isn't correct either.
From what we know the Goa'uld don't really have sexual characteristics because the symbiotes don't reproduce sexually. This would mean they can't be male or female. Hermaphroditic or intersex wouldn't be appropriate either because both those labels require the presence of sexual characteristics. The best descriptor for their sex is in fact "sexless".
As for their gender it's clear that when they inhabit hosts they choose to present their gender in specific ways.
Jolinar was said to take mostly female, women, human hosts. She was also described with she/her pronouns and other terms associated with women. So I would say that her gender would be "Woman".
Selmak I would describe as gender-fluid, as they performed the gender of the host that they took. This is likely in part that Selmak's relationship with their host was consensual and allowing the host to maintain their gender presentation was probably a part of this agreement.
Osiris is an interesting case. While Osiris as a historical god was a man and took male hosts, he took Sarah, a woman, as a host. They were still referred to as "he" in the series yet his clothing was arguably quite feminine. If I had to put a label on it I would say that Osiris is a gender-non-conforming man.
I was just musing on this as I continue my rewatch of SG-1. It's interesting to look back on all the missed opportunities to tell queer and trans stories in such an adventurous show. It doesn't dampen my nostalgia though.
[edit: obviously I know the meta reasons of why they weren't seen as trans or nonbinary in the show given the lack of awareness during the show's run. this post is more referring to how we look back on them and refer to them]
Went from rubber props
To something cooler and more terrifying
How do symbiotes heal the host when they don’t move throughout the body?
