|09:27 am - Searching for SG-1 Information!|
Okay, for any Stargate SG-1 fans reading this post, I'm getting frustrated.
I am trying to pin down a date for the death of Dr. Janet Fraiser. I've looked around the internet (who knew Wikipedia had so much information on SG-1?), and had a friend do the same, but cannot find anything.
Is there even such a thing as a fan-assembled or official Timeline for the show? I would love a link to it, if so, as Google has failed me on that score as well.
This is all for a fic that has ties to a real-world event...or will, if I can determine that the dates aren't wildly off.
Help is deeply appreciated--and if you can offer the information, I would have no problem, say, writing you a short fic as a thank you. *puppy-dog eyes*
ETA: Do we have an approximate date or a good guess at one for the begining of SG-1 season 9/Atlantis season 2? I'm not watching the current seasons, hence the question, which I think has a bearing on which date I'll choose as most likely for the above question.
Current Mood: frustrated
When no other info is available, I tend to default to the air date for the episode. According to Gateworld
, the episode you're talking about ("Heroes Part II", 7.18) aired on February 20, 2004.
Hope that helps.

Re: Dating Events
That was the first thing I considered doing (in the absence of a date being actually given in the episode), but after looking at other episodes I started thinking that might not work.
*makes a note of the date, anyway*
I never realized that Wikipedia had pages on TV shows! Wow...
I know! Weird. :-) Someone on a friendsfriendslist posted about Dr. Who info on Wikipedia this week, too. They probably have a lot of fans contributing, huh?

I love Arduinna's Handbook for questions like this but other than saying it was late 2003, she doesn't pin it down. If you haven't been to her site, go, it's a fantastic resource. http://www.stargatehandbook.org/sg1/
Oh, THANK you. I hadn't been to that site in a while and wasn't aware of the sheer amount of data she has anyway. At least she's got a sort of timeline going, and solid reasons for it.
I'll put that together with other timeline speculations...hmmm...maybe very early Nov. 2003....
It's after July 2003, anyway. Good.

I guess you haven't seen my email yet, but I noted that if we subscribe to the fact that the basic dates of importance are the same in SG-Earth as ours, "Inauguration" would take place in January 2005, not 2004. Therefore Janet would be killed sometime near Election Day, 2004.

Okay, after perusing the timeline on Arduinna's site, I agree the elections have no connection with reality. Thus it's probably best to set Janet's death at November 2003.
Heh. I *did* see your email, but that date kind of would require more messing about with my fic, so I decided to see if any other opinions were forthcoming from my flist. I'm off to reply to your email right now (hey, there's more in that email and I had to wait for lunch break). :-)

Regarding beginning of Season 9, why don't we use what we've figured out so far, that the very end of Season 7 is early 2004, and call beginning of Season 9 early/spring 2005?
I'm thinking that's what I will have to do, which is driving me batty since the original inspiration for this fic struck as I noticed that the new HP book came out the same day the first ep of season 9 aired. :-P
So, I'll have to mess with the fic itself a bit, set it a ways *into* season 9, to make it work with the dates it looks like we have.
I just thought maybe one of the shows had tagged a recent episode with a date or reference that would give me a solid yes/no on this.

Re: Premieres for SG-1 and Atlantis
The 9th season of SG-1 and the 2nd season of Atlantis premiered on the Sci-Fi Channel in July of '05.
If you don't have SFC, and you're wondering when they'll hit syndication, I believe they're about a year behind. In other words, the syndicated Season 8 will premiere this fall, and Season 9 will premiere in Fall of *'06.*
I don't know if Atlantis is in syndication or not.
Long wait, huh? Well, there's also the DVDs, if you can afford to rent. Not sure what season was most recently released.
Sorry if this is all repeats of info you already know. Hope it helped in some way!
