This is a quote from the show between Dr. Rodney McKay and Dr. Radek Zelenka attempted to theorize what would happen if a craft like a fighter left a hyperspace bubble while in flight, McKay expected that the craft would be destroyed while Zelenka proposed that it would be able to maneuver inside the hyperspace bubble.
I believe they are both right, although with a few factors to consider, as an hyperspace window is technically in another dimension, the show refers to it as another frequency but it makes more sense that it's another dimension as it is completely invulnerable to attack and track except with the more advanced races such as the alteran and the asgard.
While a ship is in hyperspace or subspace, it can pass through solid objects, such as planets or any other floating debris, which also means it could also bypass something like shields,
My theory is that an object can detach from a space craft while in an hyperspace window and all it would need is to, already be going that speed while being attached to the craft that is already in hyperspace, this allows for the object to have some level of protection but the object in question must stay within the bubble of the window and have it's shields active while in the hyperspace window as hyperspace is highly radioactive and can destroy the drone within seconds being exposed to the window.
however we know that the gould Anubis used an hyperspace window to transport an rock in tow and on the trajectory of earth, Anubis did this to make it look like an natural disaster to fool the asgard into not intervene as it looked like it was due to natural causes instead of an gould attack, this was an statement that the asgard went by when it came to the gould attacking their allies.
But Anubis's plan was thwarted as Sam exhausting all other options thought about opening an wormhole while closely towing the massive asteroid straight through the earth as she understood how the hyperspace window worked.
We also learn from another episode of stargate where Sam comes up with a brilliant idea to use the hyperspace window to destroy an replicator ship that was gaining on thor's remote controlled spaceship, Sam convinced thor to sacrifice that ship to the replicators except to blow it up in their face, and this method destroyed the replicator ship as it was most vulnerable within the hyperspace window.
Suffice to say, it is indeed possible to attack another ship while in hyperspace, however it's also possible to destroy a ship in tow as well, if an hyperspace window is opened up when not close enough to another object or ship, it can also tear an object to pieces by not being close enough to the ship that is towing it in.
I came to this conclusion through observing the Destiny's FTL drive when the drone ships were engaged in battle with Destiny, were close enough to attack but to close to avoid the Destiny from tearing them to shreds when Destiny's FTL drive engaged, effectively shredding the drone ships into pieces which might be another reason why the alien species kept their main control spaceship at an distance from destiny.
Now i know that FTL is slightly different from hyperspace, FTL is much slower but it's still invulnerable to solid objects outside it's hull while traveling within the FTL window, like traveling through an hyperspace window it can also tow objects, however with Destiny it seems like the ship that is in tow must be connected to the destiny in order for this to work, because there was an drone ship that was attached to the hull of the Destiny, and detached while Destiny was already engaged within FTL travel and this ship was able to resume roughly at the same speeds as Destiny but because this drone didn't have the capability of an FTL drive, it couldn't keep up with the FTL speeds and slowed down when it detached from the Destiny, and my assumption is the drone stayed within the FTL bubble until it was slow enough to travel without being in the bubble of the FTL travel stream before it could travel independently, however i think i remember it leaving the bubble before this happened, and the drone ship also had it's shields on while it left the FTL bubble. but i could be mistaken.
So gathering all this information on FTL and hyperspace travel, i do think it's possible to use weapons in hyperspace and FTL but it's indeed rarely ever used or seen in the show.
This information was thought up for my idea of using hyperspace windows as an indirect weapon that would be reusable given the right circumstances set in place.... if you want to read more on that concept i will leave the link right here if you are interested.
If the tollan are more advanced than the goa’uld why do they use glass screens for their computer displays instead of holographic ones
I’ll be done for a while after this one, enjoy!💙

In the season 9 episode, it is mentioned Cameron Mitchell earned the medal of honor for his actions in Antartica. Yet, when he arrives in General Landry's office in the beginning of the episode, he's not wearing the MoH ribbon on his uniform.

By now you know the drill, these aren’t mine, if they’re yours let me know, etc. Hope these made your day a bit better!

Before the ancients ascended why did they let the goa'uld steal their technology?
In case it’s too blurry, it says “This... was a ratings success with an obsessed cult following” emphasis on obsessed cult following
If the tau’ri need a new control chair for their drone weapons why don’t they take the control chair from Taonas
I know we aren't supposed to look into it too closely, but the Ancients seeded human life (probably genetically influencing our ancestors millions of years back), however if humans evolved so drastically in 10 million years or so, and the Ancients and Ori have existed for millions, why have their bodies stayed essentially identical to their modern counterparts?
Is it at the bottom of the staff or in the middle somewhere?
I know it's basically that naquada power source, but it begs the question in how it remains so stable within the staff without blowing up, it's explained within the show that the naquada mineral is very unstable.
So what keeps it from blowing up when used in combat?
I know i always have the deep questions. bad habits die hard i guess.
I'm currently in the middle of watching Avalon part 2 as they talk about the alteran and their existence before the Ori took hold of their world.
Either an novel or maybe even an fanfiction that any of you might have come across that was a good read,
i would like to know, as i find their history very interesting.
And here is why i think this is the case...
Sg-1 season 9 ep 3 Origin.
Right after vala dies and is healed back to life by the prior staff, way before the fact they both meet the Doci, a prior is seen walking out of an stargate within the milky way galaxy to convert the ppl of that world.
I don't know why i never noticed this before. But in the ark of truth movie, we see that scientist of the alteran just before they launch away within their spaceship, we see him open his little booklet and on the paper of we see a little drawing of the stargates. and he makes the claim that he had a dream the night before about an amazing idea with the stargates being this idea.
This information suggests that the stargates have already existed long before they even left the Ori galaxy to begin with, or that the Ori gave him that dream and while he was in that dream, he figured out how to make this idea happen, and the Ori took the information of that dream and made it an reality.
It's tough to say, but i think the first stargates to ever be built were by the Ori, because it's also explained within the episode Avalon part 2 when Dr. Jackson is reading that book in that vault that talks about the alteran leaving their galaxy and how long it takes before they reach a great belt of stars (the milky way) Danial mentions it took them a few thousand years go by, before they reach this belt of stars, i assume they were in some kind of FTL travel before they reached the milky way galaxy, i would also assume they had some kind of stasis pods for such a long journey as it's the only thing that makes sense.
Then when they are established within the milky way galaxy is when the scientist who had the dream about his idea of the stargates puts it into motion for the first time.
But thousands of years have passed since they left the Ori galaxy, and presumably the Ori already have an gate system established within their galaxy, which also means they would of had an head start in perfecting these stargates in how they function long before the SGU gates were ever built to begin with.
Now it all makes sense in how the Ori came to have built stargate Technology before they left for the milky way, and how they built the supergates and ring transporters. maybe that dream also had the ring platform idea in there as well, but that tech didn't exist for the alteran civilization until some time after they launched Destiny as the Destiny doesn't have ring transporters and only has old fashioned elevator tech installed.
There are 4 versions of stargates out there, only one was built by the Ori and the others were built by the alteran.
this is so crazy after all this time of watching this show i thought i knew about everything, i thought i understood everything perfectly until now.
There are 4 stargate systems out there. and the Ori have the 1st version to be created in their galaxy. i can only imagine they look like their ring transporters within the Ori galaxy, i can only imagine they are golden with beautiful writing of engraved symbols around the ring for the addresses.,
I remember back when this video game was being developed, and being excited for it's release, but it was canceled and we never got to play the game. but i want to know if they ever released an novel of where that story was going to go.
Same thing with stargate worlds.
If anyone has any information to what i'm talking about, please redirect me to that source material, as i would really like to read about the stories and possible outcomes of these games.
