This is a piece of actual Stargate fan fiction I wrote (as opposed to the previous pieces which just sketched some things out). However some testing on a focus group (my flatmates), it appears to be perfectly comprehensible and entertaining if you’ve never seen the series. You’ll miss a bunch of the in jokes, but there are enough out jokes for you to get. Because what it actually is is a sci-fi comedy about software testing.
The main things you need to know from the series are:
- The system described is in use as the still functioning artefacts of a lost civilisation millions of years later.
- The majority of the ridiculous behaviours described are both still present at that time and believed to be fundamental features of wormhole physics.
- About half of the scenarios described occur at some point in the series.
Note: The story used to be here, but has now moved to AO3. Go read it there.
