Be a Wraithkin or a Hybrid?
Be a Wraithkin or a Hybrid?
My personal opinion is that the goa'uld will be fine in taking a Wraith as host, now say this wraith is one that's been alive since the time of when they were at war with the Atlantians 10,000 years prior.
And lets also say the goa'uld obtains an queen Wraith.
My idea in how a goa'uld would possibly get into an Wraith is during an feeding as the symbote leaves the body, and embeds itself within an Wraith.
Then there is the blending that takes place, of course this isn't the first time that a Goa'uld has taken another creature as host. as we know the Unas were the first ones, so the Goa'uld say.
Anyway while this Goa'uld takes the wraith as host, the Goa'uld extracts all the knowledge of it's host, this includes everything from their tech to their Physiology, then what intel they have on Atlantian weapons and tech.
The Wraith are probably a superior species for any Goa'uld as they not only have a rich history with the Atlantians, but they also have a rich history of their own and the obvious boost in their physical strength and resilience over any Human body the goa'uld have ever been apart of. and are probably comparative to the Unas in strength and resilience, but because we know an Atlantis scientist created the Wraith with the use of human DNA and that eratus bug DNA, this is also probably due to how the Wraith were so advanced in their tech.
The Atlantian scientist was probably trying to create a human body that had all these traits so he could transform the rest of Atlantian DNA to be resistant to the plague at home, and i have to admit it's quite brilliant, but of course something went wrong with his experiments, perhaps he gave them too high of an intelligence and because of their physical strength they killed him and fed on him and that was that.
Anyway, going back to the Goa'uld, this would be an superior host for the Goa'uld if they ever wanted an comeback or gain a foothold ever again.
Imagine what their style of tech would represent after the blending and taking over the mass of the Wraith armies after a generation of this Goa'uld, i believe his ultimate Goal would be one in the same as the Wraith was.
To feed and enslave and to be as gods like the Goa'uld have been doing for thousands of years. and they know where to go to find more humans because of their genetic memory.
The lifespan of a Goa'uld was already pretty long, but if within an wraith body, they would boost that life span by 10,000 fold because of the Wraith's natural physiology provides it.
I think it was Dr. Beckett who was inspecting an Wraith arm that was severed, that an creature such as this so long as it was properly nourished meaning as long as they feed, they could probably never die, then boost that with how long a Goa'uld's natural physiology lasts as well as their natural resilience within the host they are within.
Anyway, what do you guys think of how this scenario could pan out?
Note i started this as an what if question, but in my head i was thinking that the folks on earth didn't know about any of it until generations later, as it was too late as the Wraith started to take over the milky way galaxy with their new found power and army.
And if it wasn't just some random Goa'uld behind the steering wheel, what Goa'uld do you personally think would be daring enough to try and attempt blending with an Wraith?
The show implies that she was to a certain degree, however we have seen atlantian stasis tech before, and it doesn't freeze ppl in ice like she was discovered in, not to mention this would kill an atlantian. now my theory's are as follows.
She could very well be the most advanced atlantian human to have ever lived. it's true the atlantians were experimenting with their own DNA long before they knew about the wraith, as Atlantis for the first time ever, takes off from earth and heads to Pegasus galaxy she was found having some kind of conversation that the audience wasn't ever clued into and it ends up that she stays behind on earth as Atlantis leaves earth.
She also had the ability to heal ppl and communicate through touch and perhaps feeling. but they found her and melted the ice, but she was dying of the contagion that wiped out her race 10,000 years prior, however it seemed her memory wasn't all that intact and she couldn't speak or do anything else that suggested her intellect that the atlantians were known for.
I suspect she was one of the many experimented Atlantians through DNA manipulation, although i'm not sure she had these abilities before or after the contagion spread. but doctors and scientists must have known her to be an important asset and gave her an DNA manipulation unlike no other.
How did she withstand the ice for 10,000 years but she also died off of that same contagion that wiped out so many of her kind so long ago.
We have run into atlantians before who had some special upgrades in their DNA, but O'Neill when he got his head sucked into that ancient archive that boosted his knowledge the first time, but the second time it boosted his knowledge and also gave him some of the special abilities such as healing, communicating through touch.
then we go to merlin's version of this device where danieal not only had merlin's mind sharing with his own but he also had the ability to use telekinesis, intellect, and other powers. merlin's device was much more advanced than previous versions of this tech. and i mentioned DNA changes, i assume this was the intention of the tech in the first place, it was a tool to teach and change the users DNA.
Merlin's device is by far the most advanced version of this tech, as it allowed the user some control in how much information was transferred at any given point in time and also allowed the user to virtually build something in hologram from into an actual printed piece of tech when he built the Sungral but merlin built many of these same stations on many other planets to hide his laboratory, or it was all the same tech and only moved every time the gate auto dialed to make the transfer.
Now merlin's device as far as we know didn't make changes to his DNA that would allow him to live in ice without aging at all, and he used an atlantian stasis pod so that he could continue his work when the time came to do so, but he came out very old where she was still very young looking.
Anyway, i have said all i can say on this topic. maybe someone else has an idea how and why she survived all this time in the ice but still died to the contagion. i also wonder why she was left behind while Atlantis embarked for Pegasus, it looked like an heated argument.
