    My votes go to:

    -Window of Opportunity (such a hard decision, as Threads is damn right excellent, but WOO is so hard to vote against on any grounds other than "because everyone will vote for it anyways" ;) )

    -There But For the Grace of God (again, sucker for AU stories, but it's done very well also- it was the first episode to really use various gate mechnaics combined in a manner to make the use of the gate full of suspense, ie: after max-wormhole window ends, having to dial out before they dial back in, with the Iris being used accordingly at the same time- we don't see this used quite as well as it is here until Lost City, IMO; but honorable nod to Origin, which is what really launched Season 9 for me- it's has Daniel as the shining knight of logic, and the Doci's words establishing the Ori as outright terrifying in ways neither the Wraith nor the Goa'uld ever really accomplished).

    Vote for Window of Opportunity today!

    Sorry...it's been 2 months...I was tired of seeing the post count stuck on 177.

    My old Boy Scout Troop number was only funny for the first month or so.;)

    We were doing ok for awhile- it was a small group but after a few people dropped off it became too small.

    All other nominations only recieved a single vote and were narrowed down at random to the amount needed for the brackets. Still, this is an interesting look at our prefs here (an admittedly small segment of the fanbase).

    unfortunately, I came to late to the party to be in on the noms.

    Looks like I could've been pretty influential too.
