A too-short but intriguing story with the premise of looking at how the first episodes of SGA might have gone if the main characters were all a lot smarter than they appeared to be in canon.

Regularly searched for at SGA Storyfinders as "that story where they bring bees or olive trees or something" or "that story where Elizabeth asks SGC people what they'd bring on a possibly one-way trip offworld."

Author's summary:[1] SGA the way it might have been if they hadn't managed to accidentally turn on the Stupid Generator.

Sample Recs and Reviews

"One of the things I really enjoyed about this fic is that it avoids beautifully the pitfall of having ultra!smart/ultra!powerful versions of the characters acting like demi-gods. [...] you have a group of people who are very much aware of the situation they are getting into, are prepared for the worst case scenario as well as the best and are willing to work hard to have the best possible change to survive and thrive."
