Dear movie heroes who just happen to own a ship fitted with:
1) Cloaking technology
2) Long range sensors
Yes, I'm talking about you, :sam:

You just have to get out of hyperspace cloaked and use the long range sensors to pick up the FREAKING 11KM WRAITH HIVES! :wraith:

1) Only the Odessey has cloaking technology, cause you need a ZPM for that.

2) Long range sensors don't work in hyperspace (that's why they were making jumps with the Apollo in Lifeline when they were looking for Atlantis)

Eventually all 304s will likely have cloaking abilities, however not now.

Why? Mainly due to the power source.

Rodney was talking about a Mark 12 Naq generator...

Earth a few decades from now looks really advanced.

If Sam had that mark 12 gen. the battles would have ended differently

The key to a good ambush is to make it so your enemy doesn't see it coming. :)

It was weird how close the Phoenix came out of hyperspace to the planet. I thought for sure it would start to glow from friction against the outer atmosphere.

I believe time was a factor in this case.

One word.... Perspective :D
