You sure the gene therapy wasn't mentioned again? I could have sworn...oh, well. Not important. Without the ZPM they couldn't do anything with anything anyway. rolleyes.gif

Shep mentioned the gene therapy to the bad guy that poisoned the leader. Shep actually gave a vial of the stuff to him. Shep told him it could operate the throne. I'm pretty sure that is how he did operate it. I'm sure he took that therapy. But that is the only time it was mentioned. Shep took jumpers and drones. The jumpers were useless for the villagers without a ZPM.

Seeing, as they drained the ZPM, you'd think they'd leave them a few drones and give them a Naquada generator to power the chair, so as they won't be totally defensless.

Sheppard said to Weir that they would help find a way to run things when the times comes. I took that to mean they would help getting the technology working again but it could refer to helping the villagers become something other than second class citizens.

ok, 3 things 1: if that city is one of the sister cities to atlantis, what if the wraith get it? then they can get to earth (maybe this would be a good time for that explosive zpm, evacuate the ppl and destroy it so the wraith cant get to earth)
2: so, the drones just fly off of shelves, and how did they get the drones out, because mckay was sealed in there
3: so now they just need a few more zpms and they can fly atlantis home?


oh, and the bad guy didnt use the gene therapy, he already had the ancient gene, remember he used the palm pilot at the beginning?

Guys, the whole premise of the show was that those citizens with the ancient gene were the elite and considered part of the upper class. Their genes were guarded as only they could operate the ancient technologies and safe guard the city. The gene had slowly been filtering out of their people. The last leader had the gene the strongest of them all. Don't forget that they used the scanner as Togar said to scan the Atlantis team and they noticed right away that Shep had the gene the strongest which is why he was invited to the city and the rest were rejected. They saw him as the answer to the gene being slowly bleached out of their gene pool.

ok, people here always argued that they didnt know how to fly the city, but this episode proves that they know how, so they could move it to a different planet in the galexy... to further hide themselves from the wraith

Think of it like a car, just because you know how to start the engine, doesnt mean you know how to drive it.

blink.gif I think the whole sister city thing was really kind of dumb on the writer's part, however I am looking forward to them getting to kick some wraith butt with their new puddle jumpers, drones, and such...as far as flying Atlantis...in the words of Jack O'Neill "A flying city?" cool.gif

Dont get me wrong they write a good episode on the odd occasion but they are nowhere near as good Brad Wright or Robert Cooper.

Remember how unstable the city itself was? The wraith wouldn't be able to use it to go anywhere. I mean look at how much repairing Mackay had to do just to get all those systems online. and systems online != space travel. Plus, the wraith would need enough power to do it all too.

2: so, the drones just fly off of shelves, and how did they get the drones out, because mckay was sealed in there

they clearly got them out the same way they got Mackay out dry.gif or else he would still be stuck in there!

Thats because they have been translating the Ancient database.

You've just proved my point for me. They will eventually figure it out but they dont know automatically.

The stardrive requires 3 ZPM's. I didn't think anything was wrong with a sister city. Atlantis was the FIRST of its kind. It was built and occupied long before the Ancients left the Milky Way for Pegasus. They may have built it specifically for this purpose. I don't think it removes from the wonder of the Lost City of Atlantis. It makes sense that they would have built more than one. Those things probably came in handy, and the Wraith may have destroyed many of them. OR it could be like DS9 and there were 3 of them... The Wraith did not concentrate on it more because it was not the main base of the Ancients.

I think what happened was that the writers simply wrote too much and alot of the story had to be edited out. I mean it like only took few minutes of the episode for Teyla and Ronan to start a revolution in that small town.
I actually did like this episode but it just felt like everything happened too fast.

I loved that part when that woman in the other cities says to Sheppard "Iv never known anybody by the name of Leutinant Colonel." (She thinking his first name is Leutinant and last name Colonel.)

The feudal village in this episode looks like it is the same location and a few sets from the Sodan village in SG-1.
