Ah I get it. And that's true of many work environments. I know when I worked in finance in the 1980s I was one of very few out people in management.

In my fandom (and maybe this is true of Stargate, too?) many of the major characters not only work together but all live together, too. This both makes a lot of people feel more inclined to stay closeted (because if your coworkers know, so do the people around you after work) and increases the costs of the closet (those closeted finance guys I worked with could always lead open gay lives when they weren't at work).

Exactly. In Stargate Atlantis the characters live and work together. In the first several seasons, they had no communication with earth and were unsure if they could ever go back (not so anymore).
