Why didn't Michael pound that facility from orbit to destroy his tracks or kill Ronon, Mckay, Shepard, Carson.

It would be ironic that Shepard bombarded the Humanized Wraith in the past season from a hiveship why didn't Michael do the same there?

Do you think Teyla convinced him not to or was it just a plot hole?

Your thoughts please.

That's a good point. Perhaps he was worried they had a means of attacking him in space that wasn't readily apparent to him, or perhaps it's just a "suspend your disbelief" moment. There are many of those in the Stargate franchise.

It doesn't bother me at all, but it's a perfectly valid point you raise.

Exactly, he wanted to get the heck out of there quickly, whether it was because the Atlantis Expedition found him or for some other reason he still wanted to leave quickly.

Dunno why he didn't fire. The Daedalus has already shown it's inability to hit any thing smaller than a replicator mothership so he would've been quite safe :rolleyes:

Ok, you're right but I was specifically referring to the beam weapons. Just me digging at something which erked me from pt 1.

Yep, shame when it comes to Asgard beam weapons it has incredibly poor aim :(

I agree. Teyla said the child would come soon. I think Micheal was more concerned about the chilld and his plans. Best to run and forget destroying your enemy under these circumstances.

1) they were out of episode time, no room for the scene unless u want a 3 parter lol

2) its not really that important to show, cuz u know theyre all getting away anyways

3) they were focusing on carsons goodbye and teylas missingness instead

Realistically, yeah, michael shoulda turned around and leveled the planet.

No Prize = he was afraid the daedalous was there, or coming, like in part 1 so he ran

He probably didn't want to destroy his facilities.

but the team knows the location now so its doubtful he would return to that one
