If this 304 ends up being the sixth one completed and the Sun Tzu the fifth... I just think its strange how they would change their order of completion. Although I guess it's possible in the Alternate timeline, the Sun Tzu could have existed. I just really hate the name Sun Tzu... Although I do like how they named a ship after Hammond... Although I still would have liked a 304 named Phoenix.—Anubis 10545 17:27, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Exactly. "The Hammond" sounds much better.—Anubis 10545 00:35, 25 December 2008 (UTC)
There may be facts to be amended once the final version of the episode comes out. Traditionally, a person's rank isn't included in the naming of a vessel, so it could be they reshot this scene and had Amanda (Carter) say "The George Hammond". Who knows. I don't mind the name as is. The best way to have played things out, in my opinion, would have been to not introduce the Sun Tzu at all (though I don't mind that name either, being an Asian man). Rather than introduce a fully functional ship out of nowhere (that apparently came off the production line faster than the Phoenix), they should have finished building the Phoenix and sent that with the Apollo. The Phoenix would be crippled (though not out of the picture entirely, because the Sun Tzu isn't out of the picture yet) then they could have introduced a brand new ship in development, called the "General Hammond" or "George Hammond" or whatever. No renaming, no surprise ships, just the sixth ship in development. As a matter of fact, there's no evidence that the Sun Tzu was a 304, though that is the most likely scenario, they never mention what class ship it is. —Ka'lel 01:14, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

ACTUALLY, come to think of it...In the episode, replace every instance of the word Sun Tzu with the word Phoenix and vice versa and every single problem is solved. The Phoenix exists, has been established, so we care when it's crippled. Then instead of Sheppard asking "Oh, you mean the Phoenix?" it would be "Oh you mean the Sun Tzu?" (Sun Tzu introduced). Samantha: "Actually, it's been renamed the 'General Hammond'." (Sun Tzu renamed). That way, no magically appearing 304s, we care that the Phoenix has been crippled, and the Sun Tzu is the ship that gets renamed. Everyone's happy. —Ka'lel 01:20, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

  • NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! Why did it get renamed? This sucks! What's the point of my Username now. Personally i think the phoenix should be the next ship that comes out. - User:Phoenix304
