  • O'Neill can't figure out what rank he is or how to wear his uniform; Landry is baffled by chain of command, date of rank & command responsibility. LTC (Lieutenant Colonel/O-3) Sheppard once again saves the universe from Replicators. (Surprised?)

    If BG (Brigadier General/O-7) O'Neill - Or is it MG (Major General/O-8) O'Neill? Since he apparently got demoted without being promoted, it gets a bit confusing. - could learn that epaulettes are worn under the collar, MG Landry might then cut him a little slack. Then again, MG Landry doesn't seem to have an inkling about chain of command, date of rank (Assuming O'Neill actually was a MG, he would have been promoted to that rank after Landry.) or assumption of responsibility, inasmuch as a MG (Landry) is accepting "standing orders" from the subordinate O'Neill (regardless of whether O'Neill is a BG or MG). "Stargate Atlantis" - or the US Air Force! - needs a military advisor on staff. These errors are so glaring that they detract significantly from an otherwise stellar episode.
