Communication Stones

Ah yes the communication stones, first introduced in SG1 and allowing Daniel and Vala to visit the ORI homeworld with all the complications that brought. They played a small part in Stargate Atlantis but really came to the forefront in Universe after the technology was reverse engineered to work with an SGC interface. Many fans still hold them in shall we say contempt as a symptom of why Universe never really caught on or a shortcut to incorporate fresh characters and ties to Earth when billions of light years away. Either way when SG1 Props manufactured some and offered them for sale I decided that I could certainly see them on my shelf, not cheap but they are mighty pretty even in the cheapish wooden box I bought for displaying them.

So I’ve just finished watching the first new episode of SGU for some time and I came away pretty satisfied. We see the crew dealing with the loss of Rush with the obvious differing opinions from within the camps and that’s made worse by a “malfunction” in the communication stones prior to an IOA report being sent. Things start to ramp up as the mysterious ship which left the Destiny earlier in the season is seen again bringing it’s own issues to the general mix of back stabbing and double dealing.

Key points

  • Rush & Young
  • Theme of being alone
  • Growing discontent and Conspiracy
  • Aliens
