Review:
Yet another series of yours I'd be glad to see more of, although I'm not terribly familiar with Atlantis, not having watched any.

Review of chapter "Hypothetically Speaking" from Letomo
Review:
Thanks for writing this! I enjoyed finding and reading it, especially for all the interesting questions raised. Well done!

I hope you get more inspiration on this sequence - especially if/when Greg actually makes it to Atlantis.

Review of chapter "Hypothetically Speaking" from bucksavage
Review:
Very well done story! I liked how you had the whole conversation feel like real speech; it didn't get heavy, bogged down or conversely, overly light. It had just the right gravitas.

Review of chapter "Hypothetically Speaking" from kaleecat
Review:
Greg is a perfect choice to help Carson with the dna research. Quite enjoyed this -- it is very true to the voices of both Daniel and Greg. (and thank you for having Daniel be the recruiter). Plus I can only imagine Greg driving Rodney crazy. This causes wonderful what-ifs to run in my brain, well done!

Review of chapter "Hypothetically Speaking" from JasonBarnett
Review:
um, I've seen estimates of the population of Earth 1000 years ago nine 9 digits, not four or five. In fact I've seen estimates of 10000 years ago at seven digits
Comments from author:
Obviously. I'm not saying they should have seven billion people on every planet. But in the last thousand years, human population on Earth has multiplied somewhere in the ballpark of seventeen times over. Since 5000 BC? More than a *thousand* times over. Goa'uld slave planets established that long ago, in the early years of their reign on Earth, should have a lot more than just a village or two here and there.

ETA: Okay, now I get it: when I said "thousand years ago? five thousand? ten?" you thought the five and ten were *numbers of people*, not further expressions of *years ago*. Going to make an edit to clarify that...

Review of chapter "Hypothetically Speaking" from Rich
Review:
I like this one - I think Greg would make an interesting addition to the Atlantis expedition. In answer to "why are the Wraith smarter than the Goauld ?" : the Goauld depend entirely on stolen technology and slave labor; they're parasites. The Wraith developed their own technology and fight their own battles; they're predators. Although their behaviors might appear to be similar, their attitude and skill sets are very different.
Comments from author:
Thank you!

About the Wraith, though -- no, they didn't develop their own tech, not really. Later revelations in the series prove that they didn't actually evolve from that lifesucking creature, they were engineered from it by the Ancients, presumably including the original hiveship form (which has much more limited hyperspace capability than Ancient ships), and their non-organic equipment all seems to have an Ancient tech base. Michael's the only true adaptive mechanical genius we've seen among them; their ships and so on are otherwise almost exactly the same as they were during the Great War ten thousand years ago. Even their language is a warped version of the Ancients' language. I wouldn't be surprised if the series had continued that it would turn out they'd been engineered as footsoldiers against the prospect of the Ori, or some other enemy sleeping out there.

They were smart enough to break with the Ancients and run roughshod all over them as soon as they managed to steal a bunch of ZPMs and use the power to multiply in great numbers, yes. In battle, they're definitely more adaptive than the Goa'uld, and individuals like Michael and Todd and the Queens are far scarier one on one than just about any Goa'uld ever was, except Ba'al and Anubis. Predator > Parasite in that regard, I agree. But skillswise the Wraith are a lot like the Replicators, a created race turning on its masters and wielding its tools.

You certainly make some good points here. Wouldn't mind seeing a sequel.

Review of chapter "Hypothetically Speaking" from Orion
Review:
I like the questions. Some of those things are almost never even brought up, much less given any consideration to answering them, either in the shows or in fan fiction.

Also I think you found the perfect character to ask them. Temperance Brennan (Bones) comes to mind as another option for whom might ASK such questions, but I think she might just get so bogged down in considering them that she'd be useless as a practical team member (not to mention maybe less likely to see the fun in traveling to another galaxy.

Thanks for writing!
