Ok so in LITS we saw an entire village get cloaked from the Ori, for a day or So, in the morning something got knocked outside the field and it collapsed, the power sources also conked out at the same time.
Now the village was quite large, it wasnt massive but probley the size of the SGC. So if they can cloak an SGc sized area with only three Naquadah generators. What are the Chanced that we could cloak a planet?
Obviously a planet is a massive object and the size difference between the SGC and Earth is absurd but, given that we have access to at least three ZPM's as well as hundreds of Naquadah generators. Could we, when carter has fiddled about with the device enough, cloak a planet? We know that three ZPM's can shield a large part of a planet, we know this from SGA S3. So why cant we extend the Merlin Phase field over Earth. If we retroengineered this technology, which is unlikely, then we could possition them around the globe and phase the phasing, each powered by a ZPM. This would be extreamely helpfull if the Ori invaded, it couldnt be permanent because you would probley be out of phase with everyone in the galaxy like Michel was, unless you use Sodan cloaks to phase out once your offworld.
If the Ori invade then we cant beat them, but we can hide from them, and there isnt any way they can defeat that technology, and they cant gate in because our gate would be out of phase too. If used successfully and if its possible then this device could hold the key to beating the Ori, or at least give us the time to build up our forces.
Do you think 3 ZPM's would be enough? Could we get the Asgard to help out in exchange for the technology?
