Well, it's nice to see many of you enjoyed our second episode, The Seed. What I found particularly pleasing was the number of people who went in expecting to hate the Woolsey character only to be genuinely surprised by how much they liked him in this episode. Well, hopefully you'll like him even more after next week's episode, Broken Ties, in which we get a glimpse of his more human side. And to those of you asking about the baby, Kanaan, and whether or not Teyla will face a crisis of conscience once she is confronted with the prospect of returning to active off-world duty - tune in next week for an episode that'll focus on issues of personal conflict, belonging, self-sacrifice and friendship.


Mailbag -

Freidag writes: "After reading the spoilers for Brainstorm I find myself wondering why there is a such a concentrated emphasis on McKay episodes this season. Can you explain the thought behind this Joe? The Shrine, Tracker, and now Brainstorm."

Answer: Tracker is as much a Ronon or Keller story as it is a McKay story. Yes, other two are McKay-centered, but I hardly think two episodes qualify a "concentrated emphasis on McKay episodes this season".

Otoole writes: "I would ask that even if she isn't available that there would be some way to fix the wrongs done to Carter? Let her fans know how this did/didn't affect her career."

Answer: Many fans are interpreting the I.O.A.'s decision to replace Carter as coming about because of a failure on her part but just the opposite is true as evidenced by the team's conversation at the beginning on The Seed. Under Carter's command, the human form replicators were destroyed and the wraith severely weakened. At the beginning of season four, she was brought in because the military felt that the dangers the Atlantis expedition faced were too great to allow the city to be run by civilian hands. One year later, she had dealt with those threats, making the Pegasus Galaxy a much safer place, indirectly setting up an opportunity for the I.O.A. to re-assume control of the expedition. In any case, you'll get to find out all about Carter's new command position in episode 20.

Trish writes: "Also, since Will Waring was involved in this epi, where was the pineapple?"

Answer: If you look closely, it's among the tendrils in the scene where Sheppard delivers the cure.

Kelly writes: "Why do the ptb deliberately mess with shipper groups. You throw hints one moment between Sheppard and Teyla, admitting that Teyla has a crush on Sheppard and in the next breath you have Teyla fall for some guy we have never heard of. Granted Kanaan was brought in to explain Rachel's real life pregnancy but why drag it out. And if you intend dragging it out why keep giving hints between Sheppard and Teyla. Why have Sheppard have a romantic dream about Teyla if you planned to explore Teyla/Kanaan."

Answer: In real life, Kelly, love aint so easy. There are times when two people may share a mutual attraction but be unable to get together due to circumstances.
