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 :
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.
Hi. I would say that, when a field in an infobox is unknown, it would be best to leave that field empty altogether. Including something speculative (or including the word "unknown") like "Unknown, (possibly) Naquadah" for the power source of the Sentinel, doesn't quite seem necessary. For example, on Asuran Stargate satellite, the infobox fields "size, weight, range" are all unknown, so those fields are simply left blank.
As for the power source for Asuran Stargate satellite, Rodney states: "There's a small power source that was designed to take it to its intended target and power the shield until the Gate can be dialed." While the beam may be powered by ZPMs on Asuras (though this is not explicitly stated), it sounds like the satellite itself is not powered by a ZPM (but rather a small power source). As this is the case, I'd recommend leaving that section blank, as the satellite's actual power source is unknown.
Note: I made some changes to the body of the Stargate satellite article to better-flesh out the power source issue. Let me know if you have any suggestions as this one, in particular, is a bit ambiguous.
Thank you for taking your time. I think if Elizabeth didn't betray Niam's Faction for one rogue Asuran then the the Altantis Expedition would had a powerful alliance. I did make two duscussions about the Asurans. here and here.
Well, now that you are asking what about Michael's experiment. Because it says on the Species section that they are Iratus/Human Hybrids while it was said on the show "It's an early version of the hybrid. It's been genetically altered to incorporate the predatory characteristics of several other creatures." Should the Species section be changed to varies or various as they were cleary not just part-human.
I can be wrong about couple of Goofs, while that could be difficult to know the timeframe from the perspective from the people who are watching the show and from within the show. What I am asking is how much accurate are those goofs?
Well on the The Siege Episodes, like when John Sheppard did give the order the other 302 planes return to Daedalus.
So he could sneak on to a Wraith Hive while on the Daedalus where Colonel Caldwell could had given the order to John Sheppard which John given to the other 302 planes. Because John is not above overlooking orders.
Because those scenes are showing two scenes from the same perspective in the show but we are looking it from a more confusing perspective.
Did find out the Designer section is empty on https://stargate.fandom.com/wiki/Asuran_cruiser was it an Ancient Designer Ship, because as the Asurans does copy the technologies of the Ancients, but could that be a Original Asuran Designer Ship?
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'm actually not entirely sure. Can you give me an example of a few uncredited Syler episodes so I can verify? Is this something that occurs for other characters too?
Ideally, yes, we would list non-credited appearances. Realistically, it's more-difficult to verify a characters' appearance in non-credited episode, and I worry all of the 'Appearance' articles could get muddied if we start doing it en-masse. Maybe we could include an asterisk (or some identifying mark) to denote an appearance as being uncredited.
I was looking at imdb for this, in the list of episodes where he was not credited was for example Enemies, Red Sky, Fallen, Reckoning, Part One and some next I do not remember all of them (these all episodes are marked in his list of appearances), but he was uncredited in The Changeling or New Order, Part One as well and these episodes are not marked in his character¨s appearance.
In his list of appearances were written even some episodes where he should not appear at all according imdb (Orpheus,Lifeboat), but this information can be wrong.
I think that with the exception of Siler, only Walter had two or three episodes where he was not credited (Crusade should be one of them)
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.
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.)
