I just had a cool thought how about and i only mean this for when atlantis has 3 zpms. a battle mode
which transforms parts of the city into weapons, say a few of those buildings turn into for instance ion cannons that can fire rapidly

Well they kind of already have guns. smile.gif I'm not sure how many more they need. True though that we don't know how many guns they have, but a transforming city I'm not too sure of. smile.gif

i believe so far there are only the single chair platform and the rail guns brought by the earth team
but what would be nice is for the atlantis team get into a battle where they aren't hopelessly over there
heads you know like have a battle where they are for once holding the top card from the onset

Atlantis is only armed with three drone launchers. They are controlled from the single chair platform. They have no need of any other weapons as the drones can reach orbit and take out any vessel.

We don't need Transformers: Atlantis. We need Stargate: Atlantis. Much better IMO.

I was just thinking that, what next a flying city hahaha...oh nevermind. There might be something else to defend the city but I doubt it would be a transforming apartment block

Flying city eh? Good idea. Lets mail the writers.

I do not think the city needs a 'battle mode'. The shield and drone weapons are more than adequate to protect and attack.

I suppose they could install some pulse weapons... but I do not see the point.

it also goes against the ancients pascifist beliefs. they probaly only installed the drones as a defense mechanisum mabye in case they meet the orii, or could have added then in the pegasus war with the wraith.

The ancients aren't pacifists. The current ascended ones are now, or don't interfere. But it was never said by that point that they were pacifists. If they were they probably wouldn't have built all the weapons. They knew they wouldn't encounter the Ori, I don't think they doubted that. At the time they made atlantis they were still in the mood to build guns and weapons.

The Ancients have never had pacifist beliefs. They have always been willing to fight when necessary. Look at their war with the Wraith - they fought for a hundred years. That's not the action of a pacifist.

I agree with Dafmeister the Alterrans never had pacifist beliefs except for those ascended and those in the process of being ascended minus a few renegade ascended beings, Orlin SG1 and the ascended women that defends that planet SGA (Can't remember name or episode) for example.

But getting back to the main subject of the thread Atlantis has no need for a battle mode and even if it does already we will not know till either they have three fully powered ZPMs, they accidently find "Secondary Weapons control Room" in the vast city or if they decrypt it from the Alterran Database!

Orlin gave a race of people a weapon while meant to be use as defensive weapon was still a weapon.

» Click for Spoiler «


Oma only ever helped people ascend a peaceful action never attacked anyone (except those jaffa attempting to retrieve the Har'sisis(sp) child. So no i did not mean her.

I meant the women from SGA who was condemened to defended a planet against the wraith due to attacking them in ascended form in the first place (i know its a show crossover but its still a valid point)

Sorry if I went off Topic a bit!!

Yes Stargate SDF. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Super Dimensional Fortress. Oh ya. Whith 3 ZPMs and if they dial the 9th chevron the city turns into a giant robot.

But I heard only a Furling has the skills to pilot the robot...welll that's what Gateworld said anyways.

Wow that would be cool.


not.

The drones can do all that though. In 'The Seige' they shot down Wraith darts and in 'Condemned' they damaged a Cruiser in one shot. There was no need for any other weaponry because they drones were effective in whichever way they were used.

yes but they would have needed some sort of back up in case the drones for some reason where offline
it would have been possible that they would have thought off things like that when building atlantis

Why would the drones be offline? As long as Atlantis is powered they can be used. They have a ZPM so they aren't going to run out of power for a while.

Of course, that show began my obsession with bigass spaceships that turn into robots...well also Transformers as well biggrin.gif


Also, I could see Atlantis possibly having beams, maybe they are in remote sections of the city and haven't activated yet?

Atlantis probably has lots of crap that the team hasn't discovered yet.
