Review of chapter "6. New Beginnings" from nargus
Review:
Uhhh. I'm wondering. How could Cordelia (aka Six) establish a brand new company so fast? Even if it's assumed she got Giles do fake registration back-logged, it's still only seem to be a week, and they already had building fully furnished, with flyers to student for intern? In the empty building with 1 employee? And if it's a fully employed building, then how could it be done in a week???

Review of chapter "18. High Tech isn’t an instant win button." from AlecMcDowell
Review:
This is still probably my favorite of the Ship of the Line challenge; it's developed so well, it's not rushed or stalled, it's just quality. I love that everybody has slowly been realizing that as great as the Colonial tech is, if they are faced with a fight with the goa'uld they're all still in big trouble. I think it should be one of Helo and Sharon's priorities to find and steal a goa'uld vessel, preferably something like an al'kesh. If they can figure out how to switch the Atlantis over to naquadah power and fuel, then I think all they'll need to do is have one of the Cylon's spend a month or so learning the computer languages of the goa'uld and then they'll be in good shape to reverse engineer and improve plasma and shielding tech. Would be a lot better than simply being handed Asgard tech; though I do think they'll likely get a good deal from Thor if Cordy can manage to scrounge together their cloning/resurrection knowledge.

Still finding the British a lot of fun to see, especially now when some members known the entire story and are quietly laughing at the SGC in the background.

OK, I'm sure I could think of so much more to say about this but I'm nodding off so I'll end and say I really, really, really hope that your muse returns to you on this I would love to see more!

Review of chapter "18. High Tech isn’t an instant win button." from myrddyn
Review:
ok definately a good story though it does need updating!
i'd like to see xander/karl find a small pocket of naquadah on his trip and bring a decent sample back to the atlantia with him. maybe andrew or jonothan can use it to come up with sheilds and energy weapons? although why either of them hasn't already designed a fusion reactor yet i don't know? after all it was common tech from their characters! they definately need more personel though and maybe to come clean with certain members of the military before someone asks about why they don't already have naquadah usage in their ships!

Review of chapter "10. Kidnapping for fun and profit" from Traveler
Review:
Great story only lacking in updates. Its July now so I hope more will be coming. This is too good a story to allow it to fade away. Thanks for sharing.

Review of chapter "18. High Tech isn’t an instant win button." from Kalliza
Review:
I just decided to look up the "Ship of the Line" challenge responses, and I found this one. I gotta say, it's amazing. I'm not a major BSG fan, but I decided to try it because I know the show well enough I assumed I'd be able to at least mostly follow what was going on. As it turns out, you wrote it beautifully so that I really only needed to use Wikipedia once or twice to verify that I was remembering characters correctly.

I love how you made Xander not uber, just grown up and with a valuable, but still totally within human norm, set of skills. I love how you explained why Cordelia and Xander were able to basically rewrite reality, and your way of having Janus notice *because* of it rather than having him watching regardless was a nice touch.

I also how you did the tech. I vaguely remember BSG being, as you've described, fairly low-tech high tech. I love that you've differentiated that it's fundamentally different from just about *all* the technologically advanced races in the Stargate universe. That them showing up is a boost in Earth's defense, but not an automatic overkill "win" button, makes the fic fun to read and feel balanced.

Overall, amazing job, and I look forward to reading more!

Review of chapter "18. High Tech isn’t an instant win button." from AlecMcDowell
Review:
Just re-read the last few chapters of this. Still really liking this story; the newer stuff with the Brits coming in and more eyes on the Cylon group is very interesting and I'm looking forward to where you take it. Also interested in long term consequences- Kinsey mentioned here that most nations have restarted their alien hunting teams, so, I don't see a ha'tak or 30 showing up in orbit getting past anybody this time so the US might have to come clean a lot earlier just so the international community doesn't embargo them to all hell in order to get the gate from their control. Very happy to see Cam show up as well, here. I wouldn't mind seeing him interact with Helo in the future; Xander could use a male friend similar to his age. My only real complaint about this is how little of Xander we're seeing in Helo. I get why that is the way you set it up earlier in the story, but, I'd hope that more of Xander's carefree attitude and such would leak through over time. Anyways, hope to see you update this before too long

Review of chapter "Interlude the second: In other news" from Kethric
Review:
Okay, look. You've got a decent story, with a different plot than most, and the characterizations are fine. But you've got some serious flaws going on. Cheese and crackers, Batman! I think that every time you used the words then and than, woman and women, breath and breathe, ridicules and ridiculous, (and I'm deliberately ignoring any misuse of there, their, they're and your/you're) you use the wrong one! Spell check is not your friend, because yes, those words are spelled correctly, but they're definitely not used correctly. I may not speak for everyone, but every time I have to reread a sentence because it doesn't make sense as a result of the incorrect word being used, it robs me of some enjoyment of the story. I like where it's headed, and I like the potential to be great, but the simple mistakes are brutal, just by sheer volume.

If you're not using a beta, you should find one you feel like you can rely on and be willing to listen to in order to improve the story. If you *are* using a beta, well, that beta seriously needs to brush up on grammar and spelling.
