I'd think that 3 or four main ones with another four side options and the possibility of an "alien of the week" is probably what we want. The ability to subtly turn the enemy species diversity up and down is probably a good thing.

Unless I've miscounted, currently 1 and 4 are tied, having three votes each. 2 has two votes, and 3 has one vote. The poll remains open, though if it's still tied when I check tomorrow, I'll use my tie breaker.

EDIT: I'm breaking the tie: 4 wins.

So, 1996 puts us right around when the gate first gets activated.

1996. Halfway between Desert Storm and 9/11 is a good place.

Poll remains open for now. 1996 looks to be winning, though. I'll close the vote and post the next question (very probably about our SGC-equivalent) some time this weekend, possibly tomorrow, so if you prefer a different year and haven't voted yet, you should.
