Even though atlantis was "asleep" for 10,000 years, wouldn't the stardrive has slowed down, or would one to Janus' protocols stop this from happening when using only 1 ZPM?
EDIT: i'm assuming that the "ZPMs working in sequence" protocols are still working

I don't understand your question. Why would the stardrive slow down if it weren't in use?

The Destiny's FTL drive isn't based on the same type of technology, but is the one thing that isn't worn out...

Atlantis' stardrive worked just fine when they actually had enough power to use it.

... because the stardrive need a lot of power with the other systems (one ZPM to power the main systems and shield and one-ish for the stardrive)
i reckon that the FTL drive is just an early hyperdrive (minus the subscape - not being able to generate a big enough window, they developed the FTL as a work around)
