Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IX" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Good pay off chapter for seeing Liz's POV on the mission and noticing that Giles may have more than deep respect for a now grown up Willow.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Liz does see Giles with a decided bias, because of what he did and what he represents.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IX" from SirLee
Review:
Many of the weaknesses of the Goa'uld can be traced to their penchant to let PR dictate how Engineering should build things. O'Neill once remarked, in canon, that the Jaffa staff weapon is not a "weapon of war" but a "weapon of terror"; it's not designed to kill or disable efficiently, but to maximize the intimidation factor. So it's flashy but it's hard to aim and has poor range. Similarly, the Ha'tak are intended to be a Goa'uld "flying palace", so it's made to look impressive even if from a technical standpoint it's a stupid design. Militarily, the Jaffa work most of time as an occupation army -- they are used to march loudly so they appear more numerous; they hardly ever do infiltration, where you have to be quiet and avoid being noticed. In a nutshell, the Goa'uld are lazy and spoiled after being in power for millenia, and divided by their own political intrigues; they no longer know how to wage war against a strong enemy (if they ever knew, that is), and that made them vulnerable to the new techniques brought to bear by the technologically inferior Earthlings.
Comments from author:
They have lots of powerful gadgets that they stole rather than invented, and as such, they may not understand them as well as a modern Earth physicist. That also limits their functionality.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IX" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Love seeing Liz doing her 'female version of Jack' snark in the face of Asgard and Gilesian explanations, not to mention tasteless Goa'uld pretensions. :)
Comments from author:
At least the Goa'uld don't wear gold 'grills'. :D

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IX" from Rich
Review:
Great action chapter !

Also a nice use of Buffyspeak, but I think I spotted a minor grammatical error :

"...the funness of climbing up a badly-designed ladder and go back to the sneakage down hallways. "

I think parallelism dictates that it should be "the funness of climbage of a badly-designed ladder", since you use "sneakage" in the second part of the clause.

The silliness of Goauld ship design is even more striking when you realize that they have numerous examples of better designed ships to learn from. But then, the Goauld never seem to learn very much of anything, do they ?

Seriously, this is going along very well.
Comments from author:
The Goa'uld never *have* to learn anything. They know from millennia of experience that - despite the occasional setback now and then - they will always win with what they already have.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IX" from Dragan
Review:
""A metal softball clanked onto the floor and rolled their way. Giles took one look and yelled, “Gren-”

The world went white.""

Don't you just hate when that happens?
Comments from author:
Yeah. The least Giles could do is finish his words. :D

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IX" from MarcusRowland
Review:
Yes, "extra bling" pretty much describes the Goua’uld idea of ship design. I think in one of my stories I had Jack & co. deduce that an RV hadn't been used by Goua’uld because it was "too squalid."
Comments from author:
:D :D I can see Jack describing a group of Goua'uld as 'the bling ring' now.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IX" from Riniko
Review:
Liz was in great form with the verbiage. They will likely be stripped of the obvious weapons and thrown into holding cells, but they will still be armed. I will be looking forward to the next chapter.
Comments from author:
Yeah, Goua'uld don't have a lot of experience in dealing with 007.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IX" from Zeviz
Review:
The amusing tone of these chapters is very good, especially given the recent mood of the Alex story. For example, "And she was totally not going to try to punch anyone in the solar plexus, because ouch. She would ruin her manicure on that stuff." is one of the lines at which I almost laughed.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Liz is just as flippant as her canon counterpart. And soon she'll team up with Jack.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IX" from Zorgdub
Review:
The quip is strong with this one. Also, cliffhanger and escalation of tension, but that's just the usual for your stories.
Comments from author:
Well, that's because I have plans. Evil, evil plans. Of the evilness.

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IX" from Starfox
Review:
Good chapter. I love Liz's POV and commentary, too bad about the gre-nade.

Those darn stun grenades. You try scrubbing them out, you try soaking them out...

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IX" from hamishog
Review:
It's all good. Liz and 00 are on the fast track to pain and once again the universe hangs in the balance. It's still better than Dragonball Z.
Comments from author:
Dragonball Z version: this episode, Giles yells 'Gre-' Ten chapters later, he finishes '-nade!'

Review of chapter "SG-1 and an Agent, part IX" from Harry
Review:
Well, Thor has arrived and explained things. And I agree with B. She HAS to tell Red about what Giles had to say, and IN PERSON! Seeing Willow blush like that: LOL! ROFL! But now, we have to deal with this Gou'ald stun grenade!
Comments from author:
Well, the good thing about Goua'uld stun grenades: non-lethal.
