Time travel = bad because of timeline pollution. We cause enough messes in our own space-time without risking the entire universe unravelling. There couldn't be any interesting villain continuity, because the enemies would be different each week. It would get too complicated and people might lose interest.

I have never seen a 9th chevron mentioned, is that in SG atlantis? The most logical for me would be time travel considering that ancient who had a ship that could time travel. How could it be to a different universe I mean how would they get there first to put a stargate there?

It is on every gate...

As has been said, there are a finite number of gate symbols, whereas there is an infinitum of possible temporal destinations... An infinite number of times, but only 30-some symbols.

time travel as a gate funtion would be illogical and not quite
possible really for time travel with gates you need a solar flare because the effect of the gravity causes the subspace wormhole to go not only through space but time too.

I'm sorry, but may I ask where is that spoiler from, since you haven't specified, Lancelot. Is it from Atlantis or SG-1, or is it from Universe? smile.gif

I would be sadly disappointed if they chose time travel for the ninth chevron. Not only because it may imply something that doesn't add up to the most logical direction of the gate's function, but also because of the plot disasters it may cause.

Possibly but that would mean a ship that is over 50 million years old.

Alteran technology seems pretty hardy. Atlantis has been around for a very long time, and we know it would survive to the future seen in The Last Man.

But that was a mere 48,000 years, whilst Daf specified 50 million years for an Alteran ship. Although I do not understand the connection with an Alteran ship. If all is connected to those spoilers of yours, it would have been quite nice for you guys to keep it in them. biggrin.gif

We were talking about whether or not the ship from Ark of Truth would have lasted this long.

The star in the system Atlantis is in went a bit wonky though, and the city looked like it took quite a beating. Even the ship in The Tower mostly survived being parked half underground.

Now wasn't that obvious? I don't have to read any spoiler tag content or anything to know that. I'm sorry for bothering you with it. And I'm not gonna ask what is the connection between that ship and the Ninth Chevron because I may get spoiled. 1.gif

That is the main problem with space. Things can change unexpectedly. Even if that ship is not on a planet, it can be hit by asteroids and lose its orbit, for instance. whistling.gif

There is no connection yet, we are just speculating on a possible premise for Universe given a scene which appeared in 'Ark of Truth'.

Well, you do notice that there was no mention of this scene at all excluding the spoiler tags, where it was for sure given the way you're talking about it. You have to understand my confusion as to what you were talking about because of that matter. smile.gif

the single 9 chevron address in the database in atlantis connects to the abandoned Ancient ship "Destiny" which the Ancients sent after the "seeder" ships for the Ancients to gate in and explore the galaxies but by that time thay had already learnt how to ascend to left the ship in FTL and ascended.
After two years, the tau'ri then dailled the address from a planet 21 ly from Earth using the first 8 symbols and Earth's PoO, because the address is a code rather than a specific location, as the Lucian Allience was attacking Icarus Base and Dr Nicholas Rush was a) worried that the exploding nuclear core on the planet would tranalate back through the open wormhole, and b) he was curious as to where the address went.

Way to go. It's easy to answer a 6 years old thread now that SGU has given all the answers. I do think this thread has become pretty pointless now, and should be locked down. Twas a nice poll and interesting discussion though. sad.gif

I made my first post in here. rolleyes.gif
