The Lego ideas project allows the community to submit ideas that may be turned into actuall sets if a set gets 1000 upvotes it goes in to stage 2 I just found out there is a Stargate set idea
What's on your mind?
Is it possible that earth had naquadah in the past but was striped down before the the goa'uld left earth?
Was this on purpose or is it just a coincidence that Tesla's symbol almost mirrors the destiny's design?
Now I understand that the design that destiny takes on a similar look to the Chevron's on the stargate which is where the design of the Destiny comes from.
Now I don't no how long Tesla has had this symbol, but I find this interesting because Tesla right now is known for their solar panel systems as well as a few other things, and the destiny is known for being a solar powered ship, now of course in the show it's very different type of solar as in what it extracts power from the sun or Stars and that power is scooped up close to the Corona of the sun which is the way the destiny works.
And I just found it interesting that the ship looks exactly like the Tesla symbol and almost near identical shape to the destiny as well as how the ship operates using a type of solar power.
Was this by mistake or is it just a coincidence that the ship mirrors the exact look of the symbol for tesla?
Do you think that possibly Elon musk liked the idea of the destiny and wanted to possibly mirror that symbol within his design for his company?
I didn't do a whole lot of research on this, I just found a similar design and I wondered why it's so closely resembled the destiny as well as the Chevron on the stargates.

If it’s 2021 in the stargate universe right now how many ships do you think they’ve built since 2011(I say 2011 because that was the last year sg universe aired)
So as you may have seen in the show, 9 chevron dialing has quite a few differences to standard 7 chevron or 8 chevron dialing. I spent a bit of time thinking about these differences, and decided to share my take on them.
- Everything becoming "projectiles" upon exiting a wormhole:
As you may have noticed, in SGU: Air, Part 1, people are thrown out of the Stargate at a higher velocity to that which they entered in at. This is also mentioned in Twin Destinies, where Telford states that "Everything we carry with us becomes a projectile in a nine-chevron transit".
I believe this may be due to some sort of "bodge" the Ancients implemented, rather than programming a permanent, safer solution.. Since the Stargate de-materialises the travelers, converting them to energy during the transfer through the wormhole. Therefore, the inertial properties of objects or people transferred would also be sent as data to the receiving Stargate. Given that a 9 chevron address will lead to a Stargate of an unspecified distance away (most likely a much further distance than 7 or 8 chevron addresses) the velocity properties of objects is purposefully disregarded, possibly in order to reduce potential interference to the matter stream during transfer, or to allow for the matter itself to be boosted in order to reach the destination. When a traveler arrives through a Stargate, the Stargate, having no idea what velocity the object or person should have, forcefully ejects them from the event horizon, in order to ensure that they leave the gate. Evidence of Stargates behaving this way was seen in SG1: Red Sky, where SG-1 was thrown out of the gate after certain protocols in the dialing sequence had been overridden. Possibly, the matter stream was interfered with during transit, causing the velocities of those arriving to be lost.
- Radio signals are unable to travel through a 9th chevron wormhole:
In Air, Part 1, Scott tries to radio through the wormhole to tell people to "slow down", as they are proceeding through the gate too fast. However, his message does not reach the other side. In Twin Destinies, Telford mentions "it seems that a radio signal does not reach across a nine-chevron connection."
My theory on this is similar to that on objects becoming projectiles in 9th chevron transit. Radio signals are purposefully blocked from being bi-directional in order to minimize potential interference with the matter stream.
- Wormhole is still able to connect, regardless of whether or not the receiving Stargate is in a state of motion when a connection is attempted to be established:
Twice, when Destiny is dialed with a 9 chevron address, the ship is in a state of motion, specifically FTL. Destiny has been shown to receive this connection, and drop out of FTL, presumably to make a stable connection. This is unable to occur when a standard 7 chevron address is used to try and connect to Destiny.
I believe that, because 9 chevron addresses have no relation to the Stargate's physical position in space, a different protocol is used for locking onto the other Stargate, presumably using the benefits of the non-relative 9 chevron address to achieve a connection regardless of whether or not the Stargate receiving is currently in motion.

Is it just me, or at 09:17, the Eurondan Stargate looks like a regular Stargate, but lacking in the glyphs inscribed into the inner ring?
I checked the page for this, and there were no goofs listed on the page. So, I'm not sure if I'm just the only one to notice this, or if I'm seeing things incorrectly.
Given the end of the episode Be my sins remembered. Was that really Dr Weir on board a Aurora class ship just full of nanites or just another replicator about to take advantage of the replicators being destroyed?

Sure, i definitely love Stargate, buuuut their perception of ancient mythologies is abit warped... it's ok though, i just find it funny how most stories misinterpret mythologies, especially the fact that Anubis is evil in SG...
