  • Are fan calculations considered non-canon? I was reading somewhere a while back and it seem they make a plausible reason, although I'm willing to throw this under continuity for advancement for the plot.

    • Are you referring to the hyperdrive article? Some of them are "reasonably" canon, but I'd stop short of arguing that they're all actually canon.

      For example, in Promethus Unbound, it's explicitly stated that Promethus can travel just over 50 light years in 20 minutes. So the number for velocity that's calculated in this instance is one of the more-legitimate ones we have (using the values 50 and 20). But even then, that calculation assumes that it's exactly 50.00 light years and exactly 20.00 minutes, and that Prometheus' hyperdrive was being used at 100% power. So even this calculation may not be exactly accurate, but I'd still consider it canon because of how explicitly it was stated.

      However, a number of those calculations assume that screen time correlates to elapsed time within the show, which I don't necessarily think we can assume. To be on the safe side, I'd consider most calculations non-canon unless all of the values involved are explicitly stated and don't change between episodes.

  • So a whille back ther was an announcment made about Fandom redoing a bunch of their groups and that that SGCommand was one of them or one of the first time has gone by and I had almost forgot about it untill I google a Stargate topic and this came up : 

    https://stargate-sgc.fandom.com/wiki/Stargate_Wiki

    Do you know if this is related to the the change Fanom announced or if this is just someoneduplacating this wiki? Any info you have would be helpful. Thank you.

    • Hey. So that Wiki (stargate-sgc.fandom.com) is completely separate from our Stargate Wiki (stargate.fandom.com). It was created a few years ago by a user who disagreed with how we include information from novels, comics, and other officially-licensed sources. Basically, that Wiki only includes information from the tv series.

      It looks similar to our Stargate wiki (Stargatefandom.com) only because the person who created it copied a bunch of our templates, images, formatting, etc.

    • I swear I saw that poster months ago when Stargate Origins: Catherine was first announced, but I guess not because I can't find it anywhere, heh.

      Besides the twitter post, I'm not seeing it anywhere on Stargate Command or associated with any official news. Given that the majority of Alexey Kot's twitter page is, apparently, original art he's drawn, right now, I'm more-leaning toward this being non-canon.

  • Hi. I wanted to ask something. Why are people speculating on the power source of devices where it was not mentioned?

    On the Sentinel it was added the source is Unknown but on a side note, someone added (possibly) Naquadah. It should say Unknown.

    On the Asuran Stargate Satellite it is said ZPM is powering the device, McKay is basing it on because he knows that Asurans can make their own ZPMs. But that does not make it fact. like if destroying the Alternative Reality Drive will destroy a solar system.

    For all we know it could had been Subspace Capacitor, or maybe Quantum Singularity.

    I think it would be fair to add

    Unknown (possibly) Zero Point Module to the power source section on Asuran Stargate Satellite.

    I thought it was best to talk with you, if I did miss something and made the edits.

  • Hello,

    Can I have one small question? When is the actor uncredited in the episode do we count it into the list of character appearances or not? For example Siler has quite a lot of uncredited episodes and some of them are counted, some are not counted.

    • I think that with these two characters is the problem that sometimes they (mainly Siler) have only a minimal role somewhere in the background which can a human easily overlook.

    • You should talk more about this if you have valid proof to show. Where you can hear the character talk and you can then confirm which character that was. There are wikis that adds mentions of the characters or etc while some wikis do not add mentions.

  • I was thinking of adding a provision saying that spelling should prefer American spelling, then Canadian spelling. This is because the show is American.

    • The show is American/Canadian, maybe even Canadian/American much more. 😉

    • Atlantistvru makes a compelling argument (lol).

      Actually though, I agree with MechQueste. The American spelling is generally what we've used in the past (for example, with Maneuvering thruster). And American English is generally what's used in the show (ie: only Rodney says "Zed-pm"). I'd be fine with adding a provision to SGCommand:Naming conventions that outlines this.

  • Master Sergeant Norman 'Walter' Harriman states that a 50 light-year trip would take 20 minutes. Since the International Astronomical Union defines the light year as the distance light travels in one Julian year (365.25 days), that translates to 1314900 times light speed. (And cross-platforming here, according to the warp speed calculator found here http://www.st-minutiae.com/resources/warp/index.html that would be Warp 109.55 based on the Star Trek warp factor scale used before the 23rd century.)
