Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty-Two" from CaptainJoel
Review:
If there was ever a crossover made in Heaven, this would be it. I can't really think of anything else to say, or I would be repeating other reviews. It flowed so perfectly in my mind I could just see it.

A brilliant classic, I hope you continue this. Your writing skills are excellent.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty-Two" from AlphaOmegaProtocol
Review:
This is a masterpiece of fanfiction! I have been working on my first fan fiction for months and this has been a learning experience reading all of this. Great story, and because of this I ended up getting xcom ufo defense game. Love the merging of canon between the two verses! The merge was perfection in its complete form! My story is a crossover and its nice to see where you can find little things to merge.

I have enjoyed reading all 52 chapters these past three weeks. And much to my demise my own fanfic hasn't been updated... :(

I do wish to see how the sequel goes, but Bravo!

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty-Two" from Angelform
Review:
This story is epic in every sense of the word.

The merging of the two verses is masterfully done, as is the interactions between world when some rational though is applied.
The characters act appropriately for the changed situation. (Well the SG people do, I know nothing of X-COM outside this fic.)

There are a couple of minor points however:
Staff weapons, and Zats, do not have ammo. They will fire pretty much forever. This is because Naquadah does not, as far as canon has ever shown, run out.
This could still have been integrated the same way, just make Elerium a ten-times less dense, generate a hundred times more energy and be used up a thousand times quicker.
A mothership-sized Elerium reactor could probably match a ZPM in basic output while it had fuel.

Also the bit with the replicaters makes little sense.
1 - The plasma gun should not have worked. The humanoids are solidified clouds of nanites, blowing a hole through them should not ‘kill’ them.
2 - Why would 5th stay behind? In canon they needed to be stealthy , here they had no such limitation.

That aside this has been a true pleasure to read and I greatly look forward to the next one.
Comments from author:
Naquadah is used up, just very slowly. We hear of naquadah reactors being depleted over time indicating it is being gradually consumed as it generates power.

The plasma weaponry doesn't just blow a massive hole, it would have all sorts of other effects on what it struck (various types of energy transfer to the target). Ronon's energy pistol was fairly effective against Replicators if you'd recall and that wasn't a patch on the "superheated beam of relativistic kinetic death".

O'Neill left him behind because Reps are extremely dangerous (and he's quite ruthless).

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty-Two" from sdavidm
Review:
This is a great series! I think you overuse the passive voice, so some of the sentences are a little awkward, but great job overall. I like how you've brought together the United Worlds. :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty-Two" from shazamfan
Review:
Doing another re-read of this story cause is it sooooooo awesome!!! Got to wondering about something. In 203 'Prisoners' Linea akaDestroyer of Worlds was set free by SG1 from the Planet Hadante. Then popped up in 311 'Past Pressent' having unleashed the Vorlix on a planet. She got young again, lost her memory and became Ke'ra. Later aided in helping others regain their memories, but allowed her own memory of who she really was to be buried again. In the XSGCOM Universe were does she fall? Could she become Linea again and join Loki, cause lets face it her helping him out is scary, cause she was FREAKY SMART. If she is still Ke'ra has her new world been recuirted at all?

-J-

No Linea in the story I'm afraid.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty-Two" from YademosEbyam
Review:
This story was great. In the beginning I was afraid that X-COM would overwhelm the flavor/style of SG-1, but you managed to find the balance between the two fairly quickly. The writing remained tight thoughout, and the action sequences were excellent. Can't wait to read the sequel.
Comments from author:
Hope you're enjoying Terra from the Deep then. :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve" from Prometeus
Review:
The reason why torture is a bad idea is because it's unethical. Ethics is just enlightened self-interest of the group one belongs to. So basically, torture is unethical because it doesn't work. But let's examine WHY it doesn't work.

It doesn't work because the information obtained under torture is rarely self-verifying, because people will lie under torture, because people will confess to things they've never done, and because befriending the prisoner is a much, much better way of extracting information. One that's self-reinforcing in the large and has no nasty side-effects like lowering rates of surrender.

In the case of Cassandra, the SGC doesn't need Nirrti to confess to anything because she's freely admitted to it. The information (service actually) that Nirrti is required to provide is in fact self-verifying and Cassie's life is forfeit otherwise so they lose nothing by trusting her promise to cooperate.

More importantly, there is no better way of extracting information from the Goauld because befriending Nirrti will not work. Oh sure, I can almost see it working on a subject other than Nirrti's speciality. But in her specialty? Nirrti is arrogant and has a god complex, she isn't going to treat a mere human with respect. And in XSGCOM she never really would have if not for Heimdall.

Finally, the Goauld are self-deluded totalitarian dictators, torturers and terrorists. That last is important because the Goauld see torture as a legitimate method of persuasion AND exerting power. So they aren't going to respect someone who's squeamish about using it. In other words, torturing a system lord is almost a prerequisite for a human to successfully befriend Nirrti. And she's the only system lord available.

In this ridiculously specific set of circumstances, a spot of torture is probably the ethical way to go. Especially if it's limited to shredding Nirrti's delusions of invulnerability. Something that could be classified as necessary psychiatric treatment anyways.
