Okay I just spent an hour (or more) looking up the Marine Corps on the internet in order to figure out how many Marines might be on Atlantis. I have determined that there is no way it works. Too many Sergeants, not enough officers and no way that there are that many people there.

For Sumner's rank it should be a full battalion but that seems like too many people. I don't see them sending multiple companies. Also the fact that we never see any other ranking officers. The fact that Bates is a sergeant and in charge of security means that there aren't other officers. Except for Ford who just seems content to follow around Sheppard. And it isn't like they are running teams through the gate. The only person we know with a team is Stackhouse and he is a sergeant too.

Choosing Marines was a very good choice because they are the most flexible force in the US armed forces. So they got that right. Why can't they just soothe my anal soul and tell us how many marines are on Atlantis.

This is by far the dorkiest thing I have ever done. Also I don't know why it bothers me so much. I probably put more thought into this than the writers of the show did.

Also this is my new Atlantis icon by [livejournal.com profile] goldie_gal. I love Weir and this show! Also she looks bad ass here.
