There's something wrong here. Dumping them into space was meant to be a permanent solution. However, Niam was floating in space for months and functioned perfectly afterwards, which means Weir could be "reactivated" later.--Amitakartok 18:30, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Why didn't they just fly a ship to those coordinates and beam Weir in?

Maybe they couldn't get rid of her nanites without killing her? Plus she said (or at least referred to) in Adrift that she'd be rather dead than being half-replicator.--Amitakartok (talk) (Contribs) 15:00, September 28, 2009 (UTC)
Wier is pretty much dead in most understandings of the term, she had lost her mind and now she lost her body only leaving whatever shreds of the personality that were left to be ascended along with the collective replicator consciousness and then descended into FRAN, so really after all that all that was left was an android that had a few copied bits of Elizabeth Weir's personality.-- 01:49, June 3, 2010 (UTC)
her mind is still preserved in the replicator body, just frozen and inert in space. ASDF1239 DISCUSSION 04:18, June 4, 2010 (UTC)
No, she's dead. The replicator body only contains an electronic copy of her memories and personality-influencing genes and processes them to make a copy of her personality, it's not Wier, it's just a really clever piece of Lantean programming. All this "Mind transferring" in nonsense, it's just a copy that seems to kill the original. And that applies to the Asgard too, unless they have a brain transplant, which is entirely possible.

the repli-weir/fran is clearly sentient, the original may be dead in which case it's a clone. but either way it's "alive" and can be reactivated. ASDF1239 DISCUSSION 20:12, June 4, 2010 (UTC)

it depends on what you mean by 'dead'. I think that Weir is just in a form of stasis. She can easily be reactivated again. Who she is resides in the replicator body. She is very much alive. If you consider having your original corporeal body necessary to be alive, then she is dead. No matter what, who she is is alive in a replicator body, so I say she is alive.

The asgard could have been put into replicator bodies but I doubt they would have wanted that after all the crap that the replicators have done to the three galaxies. —SupremeCommander (talk) (Contribs) 00:04, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

But if sending replicators to space kills them, how do replicators ships works? They seem to be made of the same blocks after all.

replicators don't get killed by exposure to space. by replicator ships, i presume you mean the milky way/ida replicators, which are based on a different architecture than the asurans. asuran ships, as stated by ellis in First Strike, aren't built from blocks or nanites.

Spacegate direction Edit

I wonder how the Puddlejumper could survive the Spacegate travel as they where approching it from the behind.

First we see they are coming from the Planet Gates as Weir crashes the System and bounce the puddle jumper off the gate. The gate realign it as it was before the bump.

After that the Puddle Jumper approch the Spacegate from the different side as they where heading to the Rings.

As far as I know it is not possible to travel through a Gate from both sides. So how did they do it, or did I just saw it wrong ? 09:05, October 27, 2010 (UTC)

I've been thinking about that too. If I recall, there was a book in which Teal'C said that travelling through the backside of the gate was deadly. I would guess it's either a production error or the Pegasus gates are more advanced than Milky Way ones -- — Lunt0er (talk) 14:38, March 29, 2011 (UTC)
If you pay attention in the intro sequence and then before they enter the gate later, they actually DO enter from the correct side. Pegasus gates have unique front and rear facing sides. The constellation symbols are only on the front face of the gate, the rear face has a pattern of inverted chevrons seperated by parallel lines. As the gate reorients itself following the collision, the side with the constellation glyphs is shown breifly before being oriented towards the jumper.
In addition is it regularly shown that the front of the wormhole is opaque while the rear side is slightly transparent. On numerous occasions the camera is positioned behind the gate and you can see the travelers entering the gate from the opposite side, but you never see anything behind the gate during an active wormhole when the camera is showing the front. 03:05, March 5, 2016 (UTC)

Lantean Warship

its a waste of time now but ive just noticed that the replicators warship will still be sitting on that planet or in space somewhere intact

Talk page discussion - Replicators Edit

  • Richard Woolsey mentions that Replicators have been the scourge of two galaxies but it is at least three: Milky Way, Pegasus and Ida, the Asgard home galaxy. The Unnamed galaxy in "Enemies" could also be one where Replicators are a significant threat.
    • He was referring to the Milky Way and Ida galaxies as they weren't really a scourge in Pegasus as they did not behave in the same way. It is possible the galaxy in Enemies is Ida.
    • Woosley was most like referring to the Milky Way and Pegasus galaxies. While he would have known about the Replicators in Ida, he would not have cared (nor was the full extent of their damage known since the only time the Replicators were seen in Ida, they were captured in a single location). And, since the Replicators attempted to take over the Milky Way and had begun killing planets of people in Pegasus (after trying to destroy Atlantis), it makes more sense that those would be the places he was referring to. It could also have been a factual error made by the writers.
