It still makes sense to me, not gonna change that... But what's with the sheild... You spelled it like that both in the quoted post and in this post, two times in this one. It's shield. 1.gif whistling.gif laugh.gif

Lol, that's what I was saying earlier about people correcting their own work. They sometimes don't see stuff like that, because their mind auto-corrects it... biggrin.gif


I have been wondering if the Platform was built before or after they sunk the city. If it was done before they sunk the city, why wasn't the city put closer to the platform.?

We know the technology worked, they used it on at least one other planet.

Even if it did work, I guess they couldn't have hooked the city up to it, because they would have known that it would cause and 'Inferno' situation.

The platform could have been built before sinking the city. As I remember in Before I Sleep, the city was already submerged for a while... I'm thinking that they've done that with not much time before Weir arrived, and only with the purpose of evacuating the city, but there is an empty timeline hole, that can be filled by the writers.

I'm also thinking that the platform may have been built much time before the war with the Wraith, and that in time, the city may have drifted away from the spot.

Gotanks, is your name an intentional play off of Gotenks, or is that just a coincidence that is bugging me?

USED TO BE??? There should be no used to be... you should be a fan for life smile.gif

Did I miss them explain how the energy was going to get from the platform to the city?

Also, does this prove how difficult it was to make ZPMs? If it were easy, why were the Ancients fiddling with an alternate powersource?

EDIT: Maybe the guy that makes ZPMs sided with the Ori, and the Ancients were just using ZPMs that they had in storage, but they started to run out?

Y'all can dump on this episode all you want, but the banter in the puddle jumper in the opening sequence saved it.

"ya know, SHUT UP."
"YOU SHUT UP"

Epic.

As for comments about coming across technology, Atlantis has a full ZPM and a full complement of drones. I look forward to the day these get fired off.

It wasn't a question like why do you use cold water to brush your teeth... You have a very different and distinct way of posting, it didn't happen accidentally, and we are curious why you take the time to do it. I personally am not entertained by it.

same actors play difrent roles in diferent episodes

it is a try to wake the people, and wormhole X
was a cry because didnt succseeded.

Isn't England like.. the birthplace of the English language? I know a few people from there, and they speak superb english.

The spelling there is atrocious, and I would like to know what the point of your post was. Are you high on drugs or drunk or something? huh.gif




Was Dickinson killed, or what... he seemed to just disappear.

I am probably one of those people, but you may be the poster child.

I have no idea what you were trying to say in that post, beside complaining about us being off topic. I can tell from you extensive post history that you have a great idea of what is considered regular conversation here. You are in a perfect position to critique. dry.gif

As to why the station wasn't near the city, I think they said it was mobile, which is why MacKay couldn't find it at the start of the ep. It looked like it might have legs from what I saw.

I think its good the writers are showing a little more ancient technology, and exploring the atlantian planet a bit more too. I think the show needs it for its longevity - otherwise it might fall into the mould of 'saving other people's asses we've only just met and don't really care about' every week.

Maybe if we could have a bit more fill to some of the other aspects and people of the 'expedition' (I say that in inverted commas because at the moment all it seems to be is 5 guys and a lot of red-shirts) - then it wouldn't be like Shepard's team are the ones finding everything and saving the day all the time, which seems a tad unrealistic (that they are on an alien world fighting aliens with alien technology accepted, of course tongue.gif)

lol, inverted commas are called apostrohpies .

I think you make a good point about the dynamics of the show. Carter explains in an SG1 ep that the flagship teams is more likely to be on a dangerous mission. I think the audience would lose interest if different characters were getting into trouble each week. You wouldn't feel connected to the "other guys" (pun intended).

I had no idea conformity was a prerequisite for posting here. I'm copycatting the Cynic's Corner. It doesn't take any time at all. I come up with ideas while I watch the episode then click post when the episode ends.

I personally don't care how people post their opinion on an episode. From my point of view, as long as they are expressing their opinion, and not offend anyone while they do that, he can write whatever he likes. I am neutral about his way of posting. I guess I would ask too much out of people, if I would say stop posting everything with paragraphs having titles. wink.gif

Although I do have a problem with the way ALIEN_JL posts, pressing that damn Enter too soon, thus making the lines shorter than normal. whistling.gif

Conformity is definitly not a prerequisite. My post was in response to the brevity in your response to Revan's question. If you are going to spam like that, you might as well just not post. You're free to use any format that you like, as long as it's not offensive.

When comment was just opinion...

The two of you sure weren't making it seem that way. After your two initial posts about my posts, you can imagine I would go into defensive mode and be slightly offended at being asked to justify what I thought were fairly innocent posts, that anyone could read or ignore as we all do with posts on any web board.

How long was atlantis under siege for? could the ancients have developed the deep sea platform while they were under siege as a last ditch attempt to keep the shields powered, knowing that their access to the supplies needed to recreate zpm's was limited.

If Atlantis does retrieve the wrath ship i bet they lose it maybe in the next episode when those replicator guys attack. Humans seem to always sacrifice alien ships that they've commandeered.

Well, they will probably leave it on the sea floor for an undefined amount of time... eventually TPTB may have a use for it... probably getting it destroyed immediately.

This is a matter of curiosity. No actual posting against any decision or so... but why actually is he spamming? His posts are still his own ideas about the show, even if they are kind of strange, and contain critics in them. I say that as long as he expresses his opinions, it surely can't be spam, only if he just copies those from somewhere else and posts them here. biggrin.gif
