The Stargate SG-1 team plans for an off-world visit to the Black Planet BP-169
About this creation
Teal’c: “Thank you for the timely delivery Madam Ishtar. Please put the sushi in our quarters for our return.. We have a brief off-world mission, but we shall return within the hour.



Teal’c: “Dr. Samantha Carter, it’s apparent that you may very well be the meost scared person on the SG-1 team, but you’re not YELLOW! Don’t ever let anybody call you yellow. You’re peach-colored, I’d even be so bold as to call you pink. I like to see your pink…color. It’s refreshing, especially right before a cigarette. There’s so many YELLOW people around here these days; and they have good reason to be YELLOW. Fear is their rightful ally, because we are about to visit BP-169, located in the Afralean Galaxy. BP-169 is a Black planet, blacker than Howard University after sundown.



Dr. Daniel Johnson: “Despite my years of study of Egyptology, I still have a fear of a black planet, which is why all us yellow minifigs, er, uh,… SG-1 teammates, are wearing black gloves, helmets, and visors. Once we arrive at BP-169, nobody will be able to tell that we’re yellow, and we'll be able to move about freely on the black planet without arousing any suspicion.”
Teal’c: “That is correct Dr. Johnson. If any of you have exposed ABS between your jackets and your hoods, you should apply a liberal application of blackness before we go off-world. If you don’t have any blackness, get some from Dr. Carter; I rubbed quite a bit of blackness on her last night to make sure it works. She said that I had more than enough. They say that once you go black you’ll never go back, but she’s back to pink today so don’t worry, it rubs off.”



Voice from the Control Room: “Chevron 6 encoded!”
Teal’c: “Okay everyone get ready. We’re about to encode the last symbol and make history, again.”



“Chevron 7 encoded!”
The Event Horizon appears, (thanks to copious amount of PhotoShop)



Colonel Jack O’Neil: “Teal’c, are you sure the probe we’re about to send through doesn’t have to be black? I thought you said that the archives on Apophos’ laptop we stole while he was getting a massage said that everything on BP-169 was black, and that anything not black would be immediately identified as alien and destroyed on sight.
Teal’c: “It’s not that simple Colonel O’Neil. Only yellow minifigs are despised on BP-169. Dr. Samantha Carter should stay behind on this mission though because her ponytail is too long to fit a helmet over, and if she were to get caught by the native inhabitants of BP-169, although she would not be killed, she would be doing more Gloryhole exploration than Wormhole exploration for the rest of her days.



Teal’c: “Fear not Colonel O’Neil. All technology on BP-169 is not black. This grey probe has nothing to do with our recent sub-prime recession induced cost-cutting initiatives that effectively eliminated all purchases of spray paint, orange drink, stick’em, and coconut oil. Remember, we’re a “Black” Ops program. We’re the guys that buy thousand dollar screw drivers. Trust me, if it needed to be black, I would have added it to the list of things that I had Dr. Carter rub blackness on before sending it through the hole.



Teal’c: “Pssst, Dr. Carter, the probe wasn’t on the list was it?”



Dr. Daniel Johnson: “The files that we got off of Apophos’ laptop, excluding the 53GB of HILF, JILF, and GILF files of course, indicate that BP-169 may in fact be the first planet inhabited by humans. If our off-world explorations there can give us more evidence to support this, then we'll have proof once and for all that Adam and Eve were black. I'll have my academic credibility back, and I might be able to get my exciting job back at the University and stop traveling to other planets, alternate dimensions, and occasionally through time.



Colonel O’Neill: "Teal'c, we've lost contact with the probe. We may need to abort the mission until we have time to send another probe through the Stargate."
Teal'c: “Colonel O’Neill, the probe's signal is most likely being scrambled by the blackout that BP-169 suffers from. The planet is in a constant state of total solar eclipse, and we're talking umbra, NOT penumbra here. The surface of the planet is blacker than Charlie Murphy."
Colonel O'Neil: "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead. You've never steered us wrong before Teal'c. Besides, we've got an off-world quota that we've got to meet, and it ain't gonna happen if we scrap the mission. Let's go! SG-1 move out!"



Colonel O'Neil: "Come on Daniel, grab your Eqyptology E-books and let's go."
Dr. Daniel Johnson: "Uh, sir, I just noticed something in Apophos' records that indicates that the placement of the Stargate on BP-169 is a bit irregular. I think you might want to take a look at this-"
Colonel O'Neil: "Pipe down Danny, you'll ruin my wormhole-rush with all of your blather! Hurry up and double time it, this baby’s only gonna’ stay open for 38 seconds, or at least that’s what wikipedia says about it.”



Teal'c: "Now that the rest of the team has gone through, it's my turn to get my daily dose of wormhole-rush.
This beats the best Jamaican red hairs I ever had, and is almost as much fun as those Jamaican red heads."



Teal’c: “I hope the guards don’t start eating the sushi before I get back…”


Teal’c emerges from the other side of the Stargate, now on planet BP-169.
Teal'c: "Dr. Johnson wasn't joking when he was talking about irregular placement of the Stargate on BP-169! Mwahahaha! Mwahahaha!!"



Teal'c: "Little did they realize that BP-169's Stargate sits at the top of an exact replica of the ShangHai World Finance Center, ShangHai's tallest sky-scraper and the second tallest building on Earth. From 439 meters up in the air, it's a little hard to even see the almost completely liquified remains of the rest of the SG-1 team down below. Looks like they were too busy looking at Apophos’ GILF files to discover that this Stargate is actually a trap! We'll see how many lines I get in upcoming episodes now that they're out of the way for good! Finally, I have matched the greatness of Will Smith and Levar Burton, the only other black sci-fi actors who didn't get killed off first on a simple away team. Bite me Richard Dean Anderson!"



439 meter below, the exploded remains of Dr Daniel Johnson and Colonel Jack O’Neill lay in pools of their own leaking blood. Fred, the probe, wasn’t in much better shape.



Looking up from the base of the 5 foot tall, er, uh, I mean 439 meter tall ShangHai World Finance Center, one couldn’t even see the secretly placed Stargate at the top. All along we all thought it was all merely an architectural element, but little did we know that in the same way that the Hoover Dam was built to hide Megatron, the ShangHai World Finance Center was built to house a Stargate Trap at 439 meters.



The ShangHai World Finance Center - a 5 and a half foot tall tribute to minorities in Science Fiction, and to large black phallic symbols...





Build Commentary: I think I lucked out with the timing for this one. I was working on the ShangHai World Finance Center (SWFC), and since it's ALL BLACK, I thought it would be worth it to hold off on posting it, and incorporate it into the contest MOC, which I also opted for all black wherever possible. Last year's rules said that if you have something in the works, use it, and it wasn't explicitly stated this year either way, so it shouldn't be a problem. The SWFC has about 10,000 pieces, all of which are black except for the base and some of the interior supports. Both the SWFC and the SG-1 room proved very difficult to photograph since they're all or mostly all black. I'm ok with how they turned out, but I'm sure if I had another 8 hours to burn, I could get better sharper pics of both. And about Samantha Carter, she is NOT yellow, she's pink, and the rules only forbid the use of yellow minifigs.

Deleted Shots:

The Control Room. I debated about how many computer screens and consoles to add in here, but it's just gotta' take more computers to run an inter-galactic worm hole than it takes to run a 747, so there you have it.


More screens, above, below, to the side.

It’s black y’all, it’s black y’all, it’s blackety black it’s black y’all (a la the CB4 film from the 90s). Great builds and write up, and of course there has to be a 5ft skyscraper.

Quoting Christian Schlichting Congratulations. You won the Tall Tales award 2010 Category: Short story. if you want to contribute a speech in the award show, send to tta@arcor.de till 25th december latest
First of all, let me say that Munchen (Munich for English speakers) is absolutely spectacular at this time of year. Just drove 160MPH on the AutoBahn to the flughafen (airport) to fly to UK to NYNY. MarienPlatz is Gorgeous! Tall Tales Award, huh?! Thanks a million 1x2's. This MOC was a TALL tale for sure, back calculated into an inappropriate contest it was originally entered into; I didn't have a "chance in Vega" of winning, and then you came along. I am honored, and endebted to Germany and her lego-maniacs. Danka shen! (Or however you spell that!). I have another TALL MOC in the works, but haven't been home without jetlag long enough to finish it. Merry Christmas to All, and to all a good MOC

Waiting for the next episode -- I gotta know what happens next. The tower is a great build, and the Stargate thingy itself is pretty sweet too. I agree with Lee: the control room would have stolen the show. I love the fact that the Stargate was a trap. Never saw it coming.

So I'm not the only person whos phallus tapers off towards the end... but seriously it seems a bit of a contrived link between the building you were working on and the contest/stargate-y aspect. Ah well. Whatever. What do I know...

Well, I entered Shannons, so probably not, although I kinda wanna.

Completely stunning! Super great job on this. The only thing that I think would make it perfect is getting the SG-1 decals from Fine Clonier (http://www.fineclonier.com/) and make custom SG-1 figs. Again, great work!

Quoting Rusty S. This is incredible. All the elements such as the control room, the Gate, and the little rover are perfect. You recreated a Stargate event horizon perfectly(with Photoshop, I admit), and the fact that the disadvantaged minority dude survives the episode is....interesting. Awesome build.
Teal'c is by no mans disadvantaged, but then again, you haven't seen the upcoming sequel to this pilot episode either...

An awesome build to be sure. Too bad the control room didn't make the original cut, but I am glad it was in the deleted scenes; although, as it might have been a show stealer, maybe it was better off left until the end. Lee.

AWESOME build and diorama!! I have watched this develope and evolve into something quite extraordinary. The level of detail on this MOC are amazing and it all is prize worthy!!! (It helps that I have been to the SWFC and have seen several of the SG-1 shows. I am also a bit biased being the MRS and all...) Keep up the great MOC's!
