In the Stargate Universe episode synopsis for Earth, it states that there is now a "Homeworld Command". Should we assume that the Office of Homeworld Security is the predecessor of this military unit, due to the fact that Lieutenant General O'Neill is still in command?

- That is likely the case. But, we should wait until the show airs or Joseph Mallozzi specifically states that before we make any page moves or new articles about it.—Anubis 10545 (talk) (Contribs) 01:56, October 29, 2009 (UTC)
Anyone have an opinion as to what we should do about this article now. I was thinking of moving it to "Homeworld Command", and saying that it was formerly known was "Homeworld Security"... but it's unclear of what actually happened. So... we could also create a new article entirely. But, as O'Neill's still in command, and because it's still in the Pentagon, it seems like just a name change...—Anubis 10545 (talk) (Contribs) 18:56, November 8, 2009 (UTC)
- Agreed. Homeworld Command, formerly known as Homeworld Security. Kal'el T | C - 22:35, November 8, 2009 (UTC)
- Can someone please clarify the command structure between Homeworld Command, the IOA and the SGC. It is rather confusing to tell who is responsible for what and who orders who.
Government infobox? Edit
Is it appropriate to have an infobox for governments by the Homeworld Command? It's not, after all, sovereign. It's just a bureau / military unit. Having the government infobox kinda creates the impression that Homeworld Command is an independent, sovereign polity (one run by a military junta, apparently, since the listed "head of state" is a military officer). Is there a more appropriate infobox (e.g. one for government organizations)? Misacek01 (talk) (Contribs)
Also, is the IOA subordinate to Homeworld Command? I certainly don't think so. The IOA is an intergovernmental body (deciding by committee, apparently) with what is made out to be final authority over the use of the Stargate system by Earth humans and related matters. The IOA has no jurisdiction over the military contingents involved in the Stargate Programme (as civilians cannot command the military laterally, only from the top by the established chain of command (President and Secretary of Defense in the US, similar arrangements in other IOA signatories)), but that does not mean that the military can override the IOA. In fact, it was often seen on ATL that the military couldn't defy the IOA if the latter made up its mind. Misacek01 (talk) (Contribs)
The IOA and Homeworld Command are two entirely separate agencies, also to the latter part they likely had their roles, and we only really see the IOA having overriding authority like once, and that was in a diplomatic decision of who stays behind when the Ancients took over, so we really don't know much with regards to whether or not the IOA can countermand a decision from Homeworld Command's upper ranks that are outside of their authority to give orders to such as O'Neill and Hammond.
Also on a second note, why is "The Fleet" placed under the SGC when in the series it's pretty clear that it isn't under the SGC's jurisdiction, that's mentioned at one point in Season 7 of SG-1 that the 3 star who's name I can't think of right now, was heading up the fleet, and even Landry had to request a ship be sent out for this or that, he wasn't the one the ship's Captain answered to, with how the military works they would have had their own division within HWC, probably answering to a Brigadier General, or possibly O'Neill (when he was a 2 star).
