Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty-Two" from CageFire
Review:
OK, at first I really didn't like this story too much, as the initial attitude of X-COM wasn't very good. It sounded /way/ too much like the attitude of all those stupid military types in the movies that always screw everything up with the friendly aliens. Like my dad has said to me before, in most of these movies it makes the military look bad. Where all these scientists are all sending out peaceful invitations to alien life, but if they got here they'd be shot out of the sky and chopped up on an examination table. Luckily it seems they've had the SGC to rein them in a little. Heck, it seems like they kinda rubbed off on each other over the course of the fic.
Anyway, after a few more chapters after that, I quickly became rather hooked on this story. I loved all the little jokes you added in every once in a while, as I think that a story that becomes too serious is not very entertaining. In my opinion every story could use a little humor in it now and then.
All in all a very good fic. I wasn't sure about it at first as I never heard of X-COM before, but it turned out pretty good. And I'm going to read the sequel now. Hopefully the atlantis expedition will work out better now that they have allies that can reliably dial other galaxies, and ready access to lots of power generation technology. Heck, they could probably just hook up a few dozen/hundred naquada reactors and maybe have enough to power the shield. Heck, I assume it'd even be enough to dial earth every once in a while. I'll just have to read and find out.

Very happy to hear you liked the humour I injected in there! :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty-Two" from LordBilbanes
Review:
This has been an entertaining story. I also have to say I like how you fused the two fictional universes into the story and changed a number of events around in new and interesting ways. I would add this story to my tracking list if it was still incomplete.
Comments from author:
Merging the universes was surprisingly easy given how well the technologies match.

Glad you liked it :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty-Two" from Prometeus
Review:
> The explosion of the AG-3X satellites earlier would have already caused enough EMP to cause major damage to communications down on Earth so Colonel Ronson decided to go all-in and rippled off every Mark VIII Prometheus was carrying, Atlas joining in soon afterwards.

Congrats. I was going to write that nuclear explosions in space don't produce EMPs but they're pretty near an atmosphere and they're using great big honking bombs so I checked.

You can cover the whole of North America at about 500 km altitude with a nuke in the range of 10-100 kilotons. In geosynchronous orbit, at 35000 km up, you're 70 times more distant so the atmosphere would receive very roughly 70^2 = 4900 times less radiation. Which means they'd need nukes in the 50-500 megaton range, and they've certainly got that.

Hmmm, naquadria explosions better be very, very clean in the x-ray & gamma range (much cleaner than the 0.115% big nukes get) or the Earth would be fucked from the EMP. The cheap way to protect the planet from the naquadria explosions' EMPs would be to detonate some micro-nukes in the upper atmosphere in advance. Of course that might be detectable and give away premeditation. I'm not sure how well it would work either.
Comments from author:
The two Goa'uld Busters (1000 megatons apiece) detonated in Earth orbit at the end of SG-1 Season 1 caused a lot of EMP (damaging communications according to the dialogue). I'm assuming that after that everyone had the sense to harden systems against the next time they were going to fling massively powerful warheads at the aliens over their heads!

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.

Thanks! :-)

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!

It's the little things that really make it special I feel :-)

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:
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-
Comments from author:
No Linea in the story I'm afraid.
