Oddesey Shields[edit source]
Did anyone else think that the oddysseys shields held up too well even though it carried a ZPM theres no way it could have sustained so many hits from the ori20:25, April 9, 2010 (UTC)126.96.36.199
Maybe the Ori just wanted to board the ship and capture it(they would at least get the Asgard knowledge+beam weapons), and then they slowly bombarded the shield, carefull not to destroy the craftJauh0 (talk) (Contribs) 22:06, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
Doubtful. They never had any interest in acquiring technology in any other episode (for example, Adria did not want to capture the weapon on Dakara, which she could have used to easily destroy worlds that did not bow). Besides, anything they built would have to be built "by hand." None of the villagers (or the Priors) had any understanding of science or technology.188.8.131.52 13:01, May 17, 2011 (UTC)
- In the series finale, the Asgard upgraded all of the Odyssey's systems. It sustained multiple hits in that episode, too, before the time dilation field went up. The Tau'ri could have made further upgrades with what they learned from the Asgard core afterwards. 184.108.40.206 22:51, March 4, 2012 (UTC)
What time period did this take place? And what year?—Tau'ri 21300 07:30, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
- It took place after "Unending", and before Atlantis' "First Strike", making it set in the year 2007. -- Matthew R Dunn 11:33, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
Repli Marrick[edit source]
Okay, when the replicator attaches to Marrick's back, how does it control him? Is it's leg hooked into his spine? And how did marrick get blocks on his cheek?Mr White 00:24, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
- Judging by the part where Mitchell "unplugged" the leg, it gave Marrick complete control, so yes to the first point. For the second point, this is because his skeleton was completely replaced with a Replicator one (hance the Replicators last moments. -- Matthew R Dunn 00:28, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
I enjoy how they pretty much took portions of the scripts of other movies.[edit source]
Basically, this movie could be recreated perfectly using clips from other movies. I'm exaggerating, but only slightly. I don't dislike that they did that, I'm just pointing it out. For example, one of my favorite scenes was when IOA guy got his flesh burned off and became a replicator... block... guy... Obviously taken from Terminator! And the end where they take the ark to Area 51, they might as well say it will be studied by top men and then show it being put in a box and wheeled through rows of other boxes. I did get a kick out of those scenes though. --Undomesticatedequine69 00:41, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
- I wouldn't say "obviously taken from Terminator" simply because there's a robot/android in Terminator and in Ark of Truth. Otherwise, you could say Terminator obviously had some of the same scenes as Blade Runner which is based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? from 1968. Also, Area 51 has been established as a point of interest throughout the series, you can see our page on it. Very little is original anymore because everything's been done before. —Ka'lel 05:58, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
Not just because they are robots: in the first Terminator, Arnold gets his flesh burned off and walks around as an endoskeleton. In this movie, basically the same thing happens. And I wasn't referring to them taking it to Area 51, but rather the dialog in that scene is what is oddly reminiscent of Raiders of the Lost Ark. --Undomesticatedequine69 01:17, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
Sooo... BFFs?[edit source]
Since the Priors no longer believe in the Ori, think they will give us a mothership, or share some technology? Do you think the Supergate will be left up?
- Yes, I think the Supergate will be left up, but no, they probably wouldn't give us any motherships, at least not for long-term. Those belong to people like Tomin to be used for getting around in and spreading the good word of Origin and defense against whatever threats there may be. It's the same situation as the Free Jaffa; they may loan us a ship when we need it (and come along for the ride). I can see them sharing technology though. —Ka'lel (talk) (Contribs) 17:40, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Maybe not the best place to put this comment, but check out the first two movies shown in this image that came in an email from Xbox Live.  —Anubis 10545 (talk) (Contribs) 17:46, January 23, 2010 (UTC)
The Ori ascended first? there is nothing in the series or the films that indicates this. That first scene from The Ark of Truth does not make any implications like this. According to young-Orlin, they were both "one species on an evolutionary track towards ascension." Nothing else indicates or implies that the Ori ascended first.220.127.116.11 12:26, May 17, 2011 (UTC)
- Agreed, note removed and archived here:
- Consistency Errors: The film implies that the Ori ascended before the Ancients even left the Alteran Home Galaxy, yet it is known that the ancients ascended first, but millions of years later, using technology to assist them. It could be, however, that the pre-ascended Ori were attempting to convert the would-be Ancients to an older version Origin in which the Gods were not ascended beings but purely fictional characters.
- The opening scenes talk only of fanatical believers, nothing about ascended beings
- The Ancients didn't all ascend at once; some ascended in the Pegasus galaxy, and some in the Milky Way. Some were still around (the Lantean ship in transit between the two galaxies, the Lantean ship whose crew were all in a simulation, and so on).
- The ascension device McKay found was only used by the Lanteans that were having trouble getting themselves to ascend, most did not need it.

- The sketch of the first Stargate is clearly seen to be Milky Way-type while in SGU it was clearly stated that the prototype was the Destiny-type Stargate. The mistake is understandable, though, because the movie was created before SGU. It's also possible that the Ancients weren't yet advanced enough to create the Milky Way-type.
- Or the SGU Stargates could be simply be dumbed down versions of the original "full-featured" Stargates. Designed to be mass produced by the seed ships to support the journey of the Destiny. This can be supported by the fact that the SGU gates have no D.H.D's and are smaller.
Isn't this just a matter of aesthetics? Something designed today may look like something build a millenia from now, but it doesn't mean that they are identical. Jauh0 (talk) (Contribs) 13:53, May 17, 2011 (UTC)
