No, this isn’t a thread to complain about how we’re getting the Replicator story again! This is a thread to discuss possibilities. Also, this thread is going to contain some mild spoilers from the mid season two parter so if you don’t want to know anything… stop reading.
Although they are very similar, they are not the same “species” of machine. Do you think it’s wise to send O’Neil over to Atlantis where he can get mind probed by this new technological menace and have them learn, in great detail, about the Replicators? That’s just asking for trouble. They might contact their nano-brothers and, I don’t know, merge with them… making it worse for everyone.
At least we get to see RepliCarter guess star on Atlantis when these two groups eventually meet.
