Shortly after completing their last mission, an emergency transmission came in to SG headquarters regarding technical problems with the Hubble space telescope. The technicians monitoring the telescope were in a panic because they had stopped receiving transmissions and an important survey was immanent. Most of the crew had already left HQ leaving only one member able to suit up for an emergency mission. Within minutes, the SG recovery ship was in orbit and heading for the telescope. The problem turned out to be a burnt out transmitter which required a dangerous solo space walk to repair. After a tense wait, transmissions eventually resumed and a relieved crew member was able to head home for some much deserved rest.

Community is something that modern institutions have been diligently trying to destroy. "Progress" has segregated us at the same time it claims to be bringing us together. This is the lie of so-called "civilization". The only thing that social engineers want is a convenient, compliant slave population willing to sacrifice itself to whatever whim their "masters" sway. They want people who don't care for others and don't care for themselves. They view us as nothing more than cattle to be manipulated and controlled. The worst thing that can happen is for the cows to become wolves. Wolves are pack animals who depend on real community. We can be wolves again. We can throw off the slave shackles and work together to do wonderful things that confuse and defy the slave traders.
