in the show they don't explain how the gates got to the different planets or if they were built on the individual planets. and there isn't a probable way (as of now) for the ancients to bring them to the individual planets.
(comments on if i'm wrong would be nice)

thats wierd, ?Clock started this thread and his post is second and nimitz reply is first :confused:
but anyway the ancients surely had transport ships, for a race that advanced they must have had some sort of transport ships

Transportation by ships are one possibility but there are also others, some include, transportation, or also the creation of artificial wormholes, so in this case, the Ancients were able to create and artificial wormhole to a point in space, from another point in space, just a wormhole, no Stargate, and they were able anchor the ends of the wormholes in position, or even have them move, but remain at an exact point on a planets' surface, then they sent the Stargate through and it came out there. Or a combination, they did as I previously said with the wormholes, but also transported the gates through, to assure they ended up in the correct intended positions.

Orlin showed how easy it would be to create a Stargate so i think that if any type of Ancient ship could have been used to create Stargates and DHDs.

the Ancients could just have explored space normally and when they came across a suitable planet, build a stargate on the ship and left it behind.

it would probably have been the same way the Tollan got their gate, the Nox went to the planet and built one, or helped them build one

I would think that rather than wasting time and energy "building" a gate, in the traditional sense of the word, they would have simply materialized it, this would be easier and faster as well. Not to mention entirely possible, with the Ancients level of technology at the time.

i dont think so owen maybe they would have done that later. And that is freaky that my reply is the first post.I agree with eoin it was probally transpotred with transport ships which would have a hyperdrive.

That's an interesting idea... rather than trasporting gates whole.. they simply transported the raw materials and naquadah necessary and stored the gate patterns. When they got to the site, they simply used the pattern in a transporter like device and rematerialized the naquadah and other materials in that specific form. That would be very very cool.

Could they not of used Atlantis to distribute the gates??

I think it is very likley.

Re: Unamed, Atlantis apears to be far newer than the gate network.

It will be interesting when we see gates in the Ori galaxy

nimitz

The ori gates will probaly be the newest.Actually I believe they will be the oldest according to the omnipedia but not confirmed in an ep - the ori are the ones left behind by alterrans/ancients http://www.gateworld.net/omnipedia/races/links/ori.shtml

Oh, that is not good, but then again it is good. You get to experience some really good episodes for the first time now. If they could just broadcast them everywhere at the same time, it would be so much better.

In response to nimitz: Oh ok, ya, I wasn't sure it sounded like you had. Sorry.
