Attn: General Hammond
Request permission to move all lights situated on wall of embarkation room opposite Stargate to sides and ceiling of embarkation room.
I have replaced, in total, seven (7) light fixtures on this wall in the past month, due to damage from: enemy fire (3), friendly fire (1), shorted-out Gate interface (1), alien artifact (1), and ricocheting golf ball (1).
The requested relocation will remove light fixtures from line of fire. Suggest protective cages for lights if golf incident is expected to recur.
No recommendations to prevent damage resulting from alien incursion. Sorry, sir.
