as this episode marks the debut of woolsey on stargate atlantis as a regular i thought i should review this episode.
when woolsey appeared at the SGC in SG1 for the 1st time i didnt like him because of his position in the IOA, hwever i have since seen that his personal views on the running of the SGC are quite the reverse of his official role at the SGC.(season 8 onwards)
as far as this episode goes, it was a good idea to introduce the idea that as the expedition leader not everything has to be done by the book and the changes woolsey makes in the episode from beginning to end starting with the fact he goes against IOA protocol and how he deals with it.
i see in the near future woolseys leadership becoming more like that of Dr. Weir's, the journey there will also be interesting.
