Does multiple chair platforms mean that more than one person can control drones during a battle? If so, what happens when two people are trying to control the same drone?

Probably not. As I said, it was probably auxiliary, so there wouldn't be a conflict. Either they would control them from the bridge, or the chair room...

Although, we don't know if the Orion's drones were controlled from a chair. Just because we didn't see it, doesn't mean it wasn't there.

The thing I was getting at, but I didnt think I actually said, was why he wasn't controlling the ship from the second chair...

It may have only been for the drones.

We don't know enough about the systems to give any adequate answer.

I am starting to be bothered by the fact that the battle ship had a chair room, aside from the chair on the bridge. The Aurora's drones were fired from the bridge, and in Atlantis, drones and piloting are done from the same chair.

Your thinking about the orion we never saw the Aurora fire drones.I think on the A class ships(Aurora class)
chairs have different funtions I don't think the drone chair we saw in travelers could access the navigation
(although i could be wrong)It probably had access to one battery of drones whilst the one on the bridge had access to another meaning that they could target more enemies at any given time.

Yes, I was thinking of the Orion.

The ship seen in this episode and the Orion were different. Orion didn't have a neural interface, Lorne just flipped a switch to fire the drones. Even though they are clearly the same class of ship, the one seen in this episode was just given a clearly defined control system compared to what we saw earlier.
It's the same as the city ships. We saw the Asurans control their ship from the control room and Rodney also activated the Star Drive of the second city (in 'The Tower') from a console but Sheppard used the Chair to pilot the city to the new planet.

Thanks Daf, I forgot about Rodney in 'The Tower'.

In those cases they were manually activating systems, in the same way Sheppard used the auxiliary control room in this episode.

Rodney needed to find computer terminals capable of accessing flight functions in The Tower.

I still don't think we know enough to speculate accurately or productively.

yes but which chair was he using? was it the central control chair? or was it one of the others? atlantis has (I think) three control chairs but i would guess that only one of them controls the stardrive while the others control just the drones and minor systems,I am probably wrong though and that is just my theory but until tptb tell us otherwise or i hear a better idea then I will believe it to be true.

I don't see why you would be thinking there are 3 chairs. TPTB haven't told us that there are more than one chair in a city ship either. blink.gif

When has it EVER been said there are three Chairs in Atlantis? There is only one. Why would they need more than one given the Chairs allow access to the entire city?

This is true, and it's what bothered me about the convenience of having two chairs on the ship.

There weren't two chairs on the ship. The Captain's chair just happened to have a neural control interface in case of emergency.

it has been said that there a three drone platforms in the city so i'd assume each drone platform would have
a chair assigned to it (I will admit that I could be wrong about each platform having it's own chair however on the ancient ship there was more than one chair and atlantis is a lot bigger).

The Chair can control the entire city though (as seen by flying it) so it makes sense that the chair would control all the drone chambers as well. If you've got an attack on you don't want to be firing at only one third power until the other people can run to their chairs too.

yes but you are limited by how many ships you can concentrate on a single drone platform would take care of a hive ship or 2 until someone got to the other two chairs also I would expect that like on earth ships there would always be someone stationed in the chair room who could operate it if the city did come under attack especially during a time of war.

when? as far as I've seen we've only ever seen 1 drone repository active and that was during the seige
part 2 with only a half dozen drones. also as i said before you couldn't control that many drones against
so many enemies alone even an ancient wouldn't have the concentration to shoot at so many targets.

O'neill, in the lost city. 32ish ships, plus gliders, he took them all out he did!

In The Tower, Odo fires drones from every launcher.

Multiple targets at anyone time too.
I don't think there is any arguement that an Ancient could do the same given what O'Neill showed he could do with the drones.

I don't know whether this nitpick has been pointed out before, but in this episode while Larin is distracting the Wraith and Sheppard is in the control chair preparing to fire a drone at these Wraith, Larin is using an Ancient handheld scanner. In The Seige Part I, Rodney says that only someone who has the Ancient gene can use those devices. And it is also said that none of the Travellers have the Ancient gene; so how could she use the scanner??

I noticed that, also seen Ronan using one a few times as well. I think they've moved on to 'just have to be intiailised first' thing with that.

I thought they said that some of the travellers had the gene, but none with the level of control that Sheppard had.
