    Perhaps the writers just completely forgot that they never promoted him. lol

    Poor Major Davis...I like him.

    He might not want a promotion, that happens in sci-fi, too. It was years before Antilles became a General (Long live Wookiepedia!.) And there is no rank between Major and Lt. Colonel. Lt. Colonel was created because it was felt Full Bird Colonel was a high rank deserving of experiance or exemplary attribute, but Major is sort of a middle rank, so they made LT. Colonel. A good example of this is MASH, where Lt. Colenel Henry Blake is essentially a draftee doctor with no command skills, and Colonel Sherman Potter, a 62 year old regular amry officer who had beens erving since World War I. And with that, my rambling is over.

    Which leaves only one conclusion: He's really, really bad at his job! Maybe that's why the Pentagon is sending him to the Pegasus Galaxy ... Wraith bait...
    I think it's more likely that he doesn't do anything worthy of a promotion to Lt. Colonel All he does is act as liason between SGC and the Pentagon. He's not out there risking his life or anything, so why should he get a promotion?
    True, I wonder what the rank between Major and Lt. Col. is? I mean still 4 years later and he's still a major? I dunno.

    There is no rank between Major and Lt. Col.

    Lorne has also been stuck at Major since he was introduced 5, almost 6, years ago in SG-1 season 7. They don't seem to be worried about promoting anyone but the leads in the Stargate universe.

    me don't see why Major Davis would refuse a promotion if offered one.

    anywayz, if we have another eppy like Last Man, happening 25 years in the future, and we see General Lorne and an older Davis who's still a major, that would be funny

    I think with Lorne there is a different problem. LtCol Sheppard is not only a team leader but also the military commander of Atlantis. The writers probably don't want him to be the same rank as the other personnel under his command.

    That is kind of what I figured as well, I just wanted to bring it up since everyone started making a big deal about Major Davis.

    well Lorne has been a major for like 5-6 years, which is still reasonable. Davis for 10 years is too long

    Thanks. Yeah that's true. I guess they would have to promote Sheppard to a full Col. then promote Lorne to Lt. Col then. Probably could do so now that Carter isn't in charge anymore and won't have someone with an equal rank as her.

    Unfortunately, I doubt that they will get to promoting Sheppard on the show now that it's been canceled. Maybe if it ran for another year, we would have seen a promotion but as it is, I very much doubt that

    Unless they promote them for the movie, I doubt we will see any promotions.
