This vid was created in response to a challenge in the Stargate: Atlantis (SGA) fandom to create a mission report documenting one of the team's intergalactic adventures. Given the show's identification with a military point of view, most respondents created prose narratives addressed to a commanding officer. In contrast, Lim's multimedia "Mission Report" imagines a typical Stargate adventure as told by one of the show's "native" (i.e. alien) characters. The vid not only imagines the way an oral culture might tell history, it also contradicts the show's heroic narratives and tells a story of exploitation and entitlement. "Mission Report" articulates the point of view of Teyla, the Stargate team's only woman as well as a "native" of the galaxy the team is exploring. While the show typically marginalizes her position (its point of view is firmly aligned with the Earth explorers) Lim literally gives Teyla voice by composing and singing an original song from her perspective. The song is sung in the round, demonstrating a way of remembering that is collaborative and communitarian, the very opposite of an individually-authored military document. Beyond the musical form, the lyrics reframe the show's heroic narratives of exploration as colonization: "Ragged and thin they took us in/And washed our bodies from their water skins/We took their comfort and gave them toys/We kissed their girls/And beat their boys." The repaying of kindness with trinkets, as well as the sexual exploitation of native women, are, of course, classic colonialist tropes. While it is unusual for a vidder to compose her own music, Lim's song also serves the traditional function of vid music: to provide a lens for interpreting imagery. Lim intercuts footage from SGA with the Blue Planet—in particular, we see schools of fish menaced by the occasional grinning shark. Since the explorers' main adversaries are a species of predatory alien vampires called the Wraith, it's easy enough to read the sharks as Wraith preying on communities of humans. But as with all vids, the song is the key to unpacking the visuals, and so a second reading emerges: that the show's protagonists—the colonizers from another galaxy; our intended identification points—are the true predators, and their cult of white western individualism makes their toothy, movie-star smiles terrifying.
