View Full Version : New stargate dialing sequence

From the new commercial I've figured out how the new dialing sequence will (probably) look like. It appears that when dialing that all the symbol lights will turn off. Only the symbol being dialed will light up, then the symbol will move around the gate until it reaches it's chevron, or the top chevron. I still never figured out if any other chevrons actually lock other than the top one, even on the old gate. This means that the prop gate actually has hundreds of LED's, or a video panel in each symbol spot, so it can display any symbol, or that the dialing sequence will always be done in CGI. Either way I'm hoping it looks pretty cool.

Who else sees Smiley face glyphs in the forseeable future?

As long as the B) goes to the cool planet, I'm ok.

Normal as in old? To me it doesn't seem that way. The DHD is slightly different, and the scene from the special (when the Wraith ship flys through a gate in orbit) looks like its a new one.

I noticed that too that the glyphs turn off when the gate is not being used. That's a cool function. I can't wait to see how it actually works. :cool:

The offworld gates will all have the rotating inner ring, but the Atlantis gate will be the only gate capable of operating after being moved between galaxies. The city is a big intergalactic ship, is it not?

Ah, here's the thread that explains it excellently.

I feel honored.

Maybe the Ancients as a race had mild ADD :).

That would only happen (heaven forbid!) if Felger were allowed to go...

Of course it would. Seeing all the people dancing around the gate! :D

The gate would certainly make an interesting decoration.....like a several-million-years-more-advanced lava lamp.

a great lava lamp that would be!

I can see Jack debating the pros/cons now....

Atlantis is a very important mission and doesn't need mistakes

vs.

Felgar galaxies away and unable to get back...

Best arm him with a wet noodle, anything else and he might accidentally wipe out whatever SG:A personnel are within his vicinity.

Of course, if Coombs tags along to SG:A, their combined powers could bring the Wraith to their knees. It would make a good episode episode though, Felgar oblivious to the real reasons why O'neill sent him, thinking it some kind of great honor and that Jack really likes him, while Coombs tries unsuccesfully to get it through his head that Jack just wanted rid of him. Let Felgar screw up some Ancient tech and require McKay, Felgar, and Coombs to work together to fix it. TPTB, if your reading this, I'll do whatever's required for you to legally use this (within certain monetary constraints, I've got no job at the moment and I'm still in college, so I'm definately broke). Seriously, Joe, PM me if you guys want to use this.

As mentioned in many other threads, SPOILER ALERT

















They will have a force-field in place of an iris.
