I like Vala. She was a good addition to the SG-1 team and good for Daniel.
In this particular book we get to see her doing a little of the work only she can do. The way she thinks is different from even Teal’c and that’s what made her a good fit for them.
Vala has nothing to do while the battle continues against Death. Woolsey, not really meaning anything by it and probably only saying it as a wish anyways, tells her to find McKay.
She doesn’t of course because he’s already flying the puddlejumper toward the Sun to destroy Hyperion’s weapon.
She does, however, find a knocked out Sheppard.
Waking him isn’t too hard and the plot continues.
Sheppard goes on to pilot Atlantis and Vala wanders off somewhere to do something.
I’m almost 100% sure when SG-1 returns home there are several artifacts missing from Atlantis.
Unfortunately I would have to either watch all of SG-1 or pick out the specific ones where Atlantis and SG-1 intersect to find more such moments of Vala helping Atlantis out.
I could…but I feel that would take me away from Legacy too long.
It is something to think about though since I’m working on getting the books for SG-1.
It’s short, I know, but next week we’ll be jumping into the next book, ‘Unascended’, so be ready!
