The summary says "A warring planet, and only Jack O'Neill has the background to save it." I was expecting this to be funny when I thought that the background in question was a fanatical interest in hockey, but when the real reason was revealed... ah, it's delicious. I was wondering why the others didn't see the obvious like Jack did, but then I realized that I, despite not having that particular piece of background in common with Jack, had had enough experience in another context to be able to recognise the signs also... which I think made for more enjoyment of this story. It was fun.
