|Reviews for Hero of the Soviet Union|
| Omnimercurial chapter 5 . 11/14
The first three Chapters were fantastic.
A great introduction to the Situation and Characters and lots of fun.
Some Soviet Cliches/Stereotypes but overall a fair and evenhanded take on how a Soviet SG Program in the Cold War might be.
Chapter 4 though... Ugh.
It seemed to descend into Cliched stuff and Tropes in a very clumsy manner.
Baal? Really? In a later Chapter maybe but here? After such an anticlimactic battle too?
Seems a waste when almost any other Goa'uld would d in CHapter 3.
Penal Battalions? Really? *sigh* in the 40's maybe but the 80's?
I did think Nuclear AA on Alkesh was a good idea though and the Tank Entry was interesting.
Chapter 5 with it's reveals was a little strange for me as while sad this story ends I was also a little relieved as Ch.4 had been so disappointing compared to excellent first 3.
The NATO Asgard reveal seemed very Trite and Dull really while also being rather unbelievable.
Asgard Tech is so beyond Current Tech it is ridiculous. Canon SG1 needed Goa'uld Tech to even begin to grasp the basics of Asgard Tech and needed first Hermiod and then a bequest of the Dying Asgards Knowledge.
The NATO tech reveal also served to kind of undermine the Story premise of exploring a Soviet focused SG Paralell Universe by rendering their efforts and R&D of little import.
Lastly... Leonov. Agreed a great ship. Not well suited to this SG USSR though.
It cannot land like an Alkesh, Hatak or even a BbC-302

Such an original story and such a shame that you're abandoning it.

Would be better if Mother Russia steamrolled through the world, and conquered and liberated the scum from their petty ideals. And united Earth under the Motherland. Whatever regime takes power I care naught, fascism, communism or even autocratic monarchy.

Why the hell did you stop writing this, it's amazing.

Great did' but isn't the Soviet Union a doomed nation because of how the government and economy is? The nation spends about 80% of it's economy on the military and can barely create any consumer goods for it's own people, so they have to buy foreign goods. The Soviet Union also had a string of bad leaders since the death of Joseph Stalin and the simple fact that communism just doesn't work. The Soviet Union is going to need to fix those problems to prepare for an alien invasion.

"See Comrades! In Soviet Russia gods bow to you!"
Epic! Great story.
Thank you for writing,

Haha... this is great! The soviet union conquers the universe... I wonder what they'll do when 1989 hits... or if the alien technology changes the course of history.
Thank you for writing this captivating story,

Space Nazis and Aschen together, it would've been awesome. You could even have them two playing "good cop" and "bad cop" with civilisations (the Nazis invading directly, and the Aschen giving help to seemingly repulse them and gaining their trust).

I'm definitely fan. I laughed hard at Ivanov's joke. Humour is, effectively, necessary, after such an act.
