A better question is... why create a planet at all? We have seen that the galaxies are literally full of "habitable" worlds, at least several thousand in the MW alone, so what purpose does it serve? I would be more impressed if they had found a Dyson's sphere in their path, or another similar "mega-structure") Creating a planet wouldn't be too difficult for an extremely high-tech race, but a Dyson's sphere would be much more impressive, given that it has trillions of times the surface area.

This proves that the aliens didn't made it temporary on purpose.Written in Josephmallozziâ€™s Weblog http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/

Answer: The aliens didnâ€™t know they would just end up dying again. They assumed they had â€œfixedâ€ them.
I think that these aliens used some kind of a time reverse process on the body remains they found but unfortunately it wasn't stable or so and that is why their bodies got the same injuries out of nowhere.If this theory is true this makes them a pretty strong race because time manipulation isn't that easy.
Riddle me this...
When Abydos was destroyed in "Stargate: SG-1" episode "Full Circle", the Ancients brought the entire planet back from destruction. Jack, Sam, Jackson, and Teal'C were allowed to visit everyone before they cut the connection. Why did they do that?
So, that Jack and company would know things would be okay.
Back at SGC, SGC personnel attempt to dial back to Abydos, but they are unable to connect, and fear that Abydos may have been obliterated by Anubis's superweapon. SG-1 continue to brief General Hammond about the situation and everything that transpired on Abydos. Carter and Walter continue dialing Abydos, as Carter refuses to believe that the planet is gone. Suddenly, after dozens of attempts, the Stargate establishes a wormhole to Abydos. Hammond allows SG-1 to return to Abydos to find out what has happened. SG-1 goes through the gate and discovers Skaara and his people. Astonished and yet relieved, SG-1 ask Skaara what happened. Skaara tells them that Oma helped all the Abydonian people around the planet ascend and that the people and the Stargate are only an illusion. Skaara sadly informs them that he has not heard anything about Danielâ€™s fate. Suddenly, all the people disappear. Relieved that the Abydonians had not perished during Anubis's attack, SG-1 then returns back to Earth.
There's no proof the entire planet was destroyed. Only the area around the gate. Anubis' weapon is never said to be that powerful.
Anyways, all it proves is that Ascended Ancients have that kind of power, which noone is doubting. But it would be pretty impressive for unascended beings compared to the ones we've met.
http://gateworld.net/sg1/s6/622.shtmlO'Neill surrenders the Eye to Her'ak and the Jaffa leave. On the ship, Her'ak gives Anubis the Eye, and Anubis powers up a large weapon. It fires on Yuâ€™s ships and destroys many of them. The few left retreat, unable to penetrate Anubis' shields, with Lord Yu, also still alive. Anubis plans to destroy Abydos anyway but Daniel appears and demands that he stop. Anubis refuses, and goads Daniel into attacking him. Daniel attempts to use his ascended powers to destroy Anubis, however, his attack is cut short and he is spirited away by Oma Desala. Anubis, rid of his last obstacle, fires the superweapon at the pyramid on Abydos, where Jack is, and Jack slips through the event horizon of the Abydos Stargate and back to the SGC just in time. The planet Abydos is then destroyed.
Hmm... What now?Anubis activates his weapon once again, and a massive burst strikes the pyramid on the planet's surface. SG-1 returns to Earth through the Stargate, and Jack witnesses the pyramid collapse around him as he steps through the gate. The pyramid, the planet, everything is utterly annihilated.
The Ancients created that planet and obelisk.

Carter insists that they keep trying -- she won't give up until someone with a ship flies over the planet and tells her there's nothing left alive.Destroying a planet could just mean destroying the population of the planet.Skaara tells them that Oma helped all the Abydonian people around the planet ascend and that the people and the Stargate are only an illusion.
See above your post. Its not metaphorical.
"Stargate: Universe" is about the Ancients in general, and how a human crew got stranded onto their abandoned ship. Ever since they came aboard the Destiny, the Ancients have been visiting key characters. Scot, Rush, Young, T.J., etc...
Since the show is moving slower than a normal "Stargate" series, people will end up connecting the pieces slower than others. If you listen and pay attention to small pieces, you would have noticed the Ancients in this sector have an interesting way of helping people.
We have proof that the show writers like to take the same species, and put them into another galaxy with different belief systems. Asgards in Milky Way gallaxy versus Asgard in the Peragus galaxy. Same species with a different slant to their level of involvement. Similar to what we are now seeing.
It is definitely the Ancients.

It isn't the Ancients, as Mallozi has expressed his dislike of ascended beings.
The Ancients have never been shown to recreate a planet. Anubis' superweapon did not destory Abydos, because they would have brought that up when he tried to do it to the planet they found Daniel on.
Again, do with the information I posted as you will. After solving the puzzle behind the show, I am more engaged into this series.
I think some of you are making a big mistake here interpreting that ascension leads to some god-like power. All it really is is a different and more advanced form of existence. We know that they can manipulate nature, become invisible and even destroy things but as far as creating anything goes well they cant just do that out of nothing and nothing we have seen so far suggests this. Otherwise the Ori wouldn't have needed their followers to build their ships.
Ascended beings can't build a space ship but they can build a planet? I think not.. This new race doesn't have to be 'ascended' to have greater ability than the ascended ancients do.
