BSG had the cylons and the DS9 had the Dominion, This show doesn't even have that.
Its only the odd episode that involves Gate travel, Air part 3 and Water that's it, Stargate is all about dialing up different planets and exploring them, In this show they only go off world if they need supplies.
I think I fast forwarded through 30 minutes of character crap in the latest episode. These writers must be the same ones that killed BSG and Enterprise S4. I like the actors , but the writers are killing it. ST voyager is better and had more SciFi. I don't think I will make the effort to watch the remaining of the season
