Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from (Past Donor)Jewel
Fantastic story. Can't wait for more.

I kept thinking that Andianov's 'freakish reactions' might make her the slayer for her generation on a world without demonic threats.

Or a potential, she's too old to be called now anyhow ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from eriktheviking
I had been avoiding this as I knew nothing of X-com beyond it being a game title I saw a number of years ago.

However, I took the chance and I must say it is brilliant, even with no knowledge of X-com beyond what I have gained chapter by chapter.

Really enjoying the character development and interactions.

Especially this last chapter and Teal'c's thoughts on Sergeant Andianov.

Looking forward to more.

Thanks for the review. Given the obscurity of the cross I'm happy to hear that it's still worth reading by people that didn't waste much of the mid-1990's playing X-COM games :-p

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from Marcel
Heh... too bad the Aschen managed to warn themselves from the future :)
Comments from author:
The Aschen actually turn out pretty useful to know as it happens :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from Marcel
Er... Switzerland is the one that used to be "heavily armed and ready for a fight too", not Sweden :)
Comments from author:
Nope back when they both worried about the USSR invading Western Europe the Swedes had a considerably more powerful military than Switzerland (although the latter could put a lot of men in the field if invaded).

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from CPTSkip
I used to love playing X-COM. Now you've got me wondering where I put my old copy of the game. And your story is just too frakking cool. I like the logical way you have merged the two universes. I can't wait for Thor to show up and explain the other Evil Greys. You are also doing a nice job on the characters of the SGC people. I look forward to more of your story. The use of the two gates to put stuff into Earth orbit is brilliant. Nicely done.
Comments from author:
I've tried to put a bit of thought into logically merging the universes. Thor explains a lot of what's going on in Chapter 5 as it happens.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from Tatsu
Actually i thought about it and couldn't understand why i thought the 2 were incompatible. But fun story so far. Love the idea for the rotating staff chain cannon. oh god wait till the gou'old come up against Blaster Bombs.
Comments from author:
It'll be the Naquadah and the later Naquadriah enhanced blaster bombs that they'll worry about :-p

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
*chuckles* Thanks. Running into the clone team a bit early is a great consequence :)

Hold up, I just read the wikipedia article on "Seven Days" ... The show has grey aliens that crashed at Roswell using a variation of Element 115 that allowed for time travel... Neat, eh? I'm seeing a running theme here ;)
Comments from author:
Handy stuff Ununpentium ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Awesome. Good central casting. Nice to know there's definitely enough jobs to go around. I don't know if you'll continue with this timeline until we reach Atlantis, but... Heck, enough stuff is awesome, just keep doing your best. :D
Comments from author:
"XSGCOM: Goa'uld Defence" is planned to cover up to the end of Season 7 where they find the Ancient base in Antartica and I've already got a sequel planned involving Atlantis called "XSGCOM: Terra from the Deep". It'll actually be cocurrent with both galaxies and follow Stargate SG-1 Seasons 8-10 and Stargate Atlantis Seasons 1-3.

X-COM will have a ball fighting the Wraith and the Ori ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from purrfus
Intriguing beginning. Its actually kinda nice that each group is so assured of their own superiority.

The Jaffa were fun to watch die. Capturing the one has all kinds of potential. While considering the changes in his reality, his use of the word buff to describe the Asgard wannabe was jarring. Even with occasional exposure to Tau'ri it just doesn't seem like the sorta slang that would be picked up first.

Thanks for the links - really helpful.
Comments from author:
He didn't actually think the word "buff" as rather a word in goa'uld the closest translation of which in meaning would be buff ;-)

Given the relative obscurity of the crossover I thought the info links were warranted. Glad to hear they were useful :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Tatsu
You've done something I thought couldn't be done. Good job. btw love the scene with Radek asking O'Neill to shoot McKay ^_^ I'm sure after Carter gets to know him a bit better she'll be wishing he did. hehe
Comments from author:
Couldn't be done? How so? (I'm just curious).

Thanks for the review, hope you like the forthcoming chapters.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Psyckosama
Said it before, will say it again... entire thing reads like "LOL! STARGATE IZ TEH SUXORS!" :P
Comments from author:
And as I responded before I can only tone down X-COM canon so much before it wouldn't be them any more. By many terms of reference (diplomacy, or humanity not being included in them) the SGC *is* far less effective than X-COM, the latter has better troops, equipment and R&D people. That doesn't mean Stargate sucks, it means that unless I throw canon completely out the window X-COM will do some things a whole lot better than they do.

The SGC personnel are clearly saner in the Fic, and have a big-picture perspective the myopically focused X-COM people lack. The latter are also very unpleasant to the point of being despicable sometimes.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Kethric
Glad you've finally decided to post this here. It's a good read, although a bit disconcerting in terms of attitude, if you're a huge fan of SG-1. Still waiting on the next installment of Horse, Foot, and Artillery at Not a big fan of the site, but your stories there, even with the addition of a primary character are pretty good. In fact, they're so good, it's easy to imagine Stephen Hicks being a part of the actual cast. By far my favorite fics on that site.
Comments from author:
The attitude is of course deliberately disturbing, I wanted to throw a group into the mix who've been facing a far nastier time than the SGC ever had to deal with and put a darker spin on the story as a result.

Cally Hicks rather than Steven was my favourite added character as it happens. More H,F&A is on the way ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Marcel
Woot woot! sucks, trust me... at least as a reader. It took me a long while to figure out you can even leave reviews over there. This site is infinitely superior. Hell, I'll donate in your name if you bring (and maybe revive? hint hint :P) the Firefly story too.
Comments from author:
After much badgering from many people the last chapter of Here Be Dragons is going to be completed once I've finished Compelled to Play the Grear Game. So it should be posted up at sometime in May.
