Continuity is a big part of SGU. In the kinosode "New Kind of Crazy", yes, Riley appears fine, but Eli switches to a previously recorded video, which was most likely recorded before his injuries, when Eli was touring the Kino throughout the ship and still learning about wormhole physics.

- I certainly hope that he's alive. He's among my favorite characters. Watching the Kino webisode though his appearance is more ragged and rough though so if he's alive, he's more than likely on light duty.--Pyroslev (talk) (Contribs) 02:33, December 28, 2009 (UTC)
For Riley - Requiescat in pace Edit
- "It's not so much being out here as it is... not being there."
- ―Hunter Riley
Let us all raise our glasses to Hunter Riley, whose passing we shall all mourn. His death was a tragic one, but atleast he died in as little pain as possible, and being surrounded by those who he called, friends. Never before have I been so touched by someone's death than Riley's. And to colonel Young, who did his duty as Riley's commanding officer, and allowed him to die with honor, and dignity. For Riley, may he rest in peace. --Uriel718 (talk) (Contribs) 17:32, October 6, 2010 (UTC)
- Amen. I have only shed a tear three times while watching Stargate. First when Daniel died, when Frasier died and when Beckett died. This was the fourth and with it being for a character with less than a dozen appearances compared to the other three that were main characters just shows how well the scene was written and preformed.

- Its sad, he was the only charcter of his type that died this early in a series. I thought Riley was going to make it or atleast be that one guy who died in the best way possible.188.8.131.52 20:32, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
- Well, think about it. Would you rather be suffocated by your CO, or bleed to death? I know which one I would pick...Alas, poor Riley. He shall rest in peace. |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| No more siggy... 07:22, October 8, 2010 (UTC)
On uniform inaccuracies Edit
In the United States, and I assume Canada, it is a federal offense to impersonate military personnel in full uniform. This applies even to actors portraying personnel in film. As such, the film industry wardrobe folks have gotten around this law by misplacing military uniform items such as rank and rate insignia, and even putting ribbons on in the wrong order (Yes, Virginia, there is a specific order for ribbons and medals). This is due to a loophole/technicality in military law that states that any personnel wearing ribbons out of order, or insignia not commensurate with their rate or rank, is "out of uniform". This is why film actors, unless they are inactive military personnel (and even then it's risky), wear uniforms that are not 100% accurate, by using outdated insignia and the like.
- This is inaccurate, at least for the US. Actors are specifically allowed to wear military uniforms during theatrical performances, per 10USC §772 and the caveat disallowing criticism of the military was struck down in Schacht v. United States. Inaccuracies in portrayals of uniforms are simply from a lack of research, oversights, or other gaffs.--184.108.40.206 21:51, December 7, 2010 (UTC)
- Technically is it not an offense if your wear it in privacy (on set) if they went out in public with the uniforms on they could be charged220.127.116.11 04:06, March 13, 2011 (UTC)
