I asked the following of Mr. Mallozzi.
First off thank you for answering my last question. I acted like a screaming fanboy after I saw that you answered my question. Everyone around me looked at me funny. Haha anway I digress.
My question is as follows:
The ancients where the ones who created the Stargates in both the Milky Way and the Pegasus's Galaxy. That is a massive amount of Stargates. This would logically come to a conclusion that the ancients had to have a massive Stargate factory. Has any of the writers ever thought of this? If so has this idea been in the pipeline for awhile? If not I believe this could either be a good idea or bad idea. The ramifacations for SG-1 or SG-A finding such a factory would be huge. We would be the only race with the capability of making new stargates or positioning new stargates that no one knows about.
This will will probably be why this idea never sees the light of day. Just thought this would be a good idea for you guys to kick around if you haven't thought of it yet.
Also, if you have decided not to use this plot idea why did you decide against it?"
Mr. Mallozi's answer was:
Its something we have discussed and may be exploring if we get another season.
Now, this is an area where I want a brainstorm of what people would expect to see or want to see with an episode like this.
I would like to see SG-1 get a previously unknown gate address from maybe the ancient database or an artifact. Then when SG-1 gets to the planet they see a huge structure with a stargate statue in the front and a giant stone tablet (about 7 Feet tall) at a closed doorway.
"Daniel what do you make of this?"
"Well this is absolutley ancient design. Give me a couple of minutes to read this."
"Colonel Mitchell it is very unancient like for them to leave something like this behind?"
"Teal'c is right Colonel. They normally dont leave structures like this out in the open they normally destroy them or hide them under high security."
"Well I dont see anyway in so I would say that is complete security."
Suddenly the camera focus's in on Daniel who gets a shocked look on his face, Stands up, Moves backward two steps, Stumbles, and falls down. He is still looking at the tablet as he falls to the ground.
Eberyone runs over to Daniel to help him.
"Daniel Jackson are you injured?"
Daniel starts open and closing his mouth like he is trying to say something but he is to shocked to say it and noone hears any words coming out.
Colonel Mitchell looks at Sam
"You ever seen him do this?"
Daniel speaking very quietly
Daniel grabs Colonel Mitchell and looks him in the eye
"This is the factory where the ancients built the stargate's"
Mitchell, Daniel, and Sam look at each other with shock and disbelief.
"Daniel are you sure the transalation might be wrong"
Daniel Histerically walking over to the tablet to translate
"Here lies the great astria porta factory. May the porta unite all races across this vast galaxy. This is it. Do you have any idea what this is and can be?!?"
"If this place is still working we can make new stargates, make backups, even put stargates where they never where any?"
Teal'c stands up and looks at the building
The opening scene ends with a shot of all the team standing with shocked faces looking at the building.
Now thats an episode I would pay $100 to see especially with the great writers on stargate getting there hands on that story.
Give me your thoughts and Ideas on this story that may possibly be made.
