Considering ring transporters were at the Proclarush outpost in the [milky way] galaxy(?), there should exists better looking ring transporters in pegasus.

Or is it a franchise copyright that they cannot bring them over like zats/staff weapons ala SG-1?

I think it's more of an attemt to avoid repetition between the two shows then copyright issues.

(This has been asked before)

Copyrigth issues :S I can understand them not wanting to use them because SG1 uses them but how does copyright fit in :confused: Sony owns SG1 + SGA so why cant they use them?

also if the Ancients had cityships (Atlantis and the Tower), they wouldn't need ring transporters because they would have transporters in the cities and outposts for the city ships to land.

Indeed, they have the little lift things where they walk in and are transported away. MW galaxy and PG galaxy ancient tech tends to be very different for some reason.

Atlantis has those transporter booths and the Daedalus has Asgard 'porters which are far far cooler. :thoranime07:

The reason for that I think is because technology continuely to increase as the Ancients were going to PG and during their time in PG until the Wraith-Ancient War. After that war, they retreated to Earth and decided not to persue science anymore and lived the rest of their lives in peace. Then the MW technology: some got buried and some got scrounged by the Gou'ld and what they couldn't master were destroyed or were lost.

I wondered it myself sometimes but if they use the transporters in the city you can hear the same sound sometimes but you have to listen very carefully

When the Ancients began to suffer from a plague, which is the reason they left the milky way, the city was still under construction. It would of been constructed with all their latest advancements and technologies, which would include the transporters, their nice new gate, the dialing system (first seen in the time machine of episode "it's good to be king"), and no doubt many other things we're yet to see.

are ring transporters compatible with lantian ones?

I think when they arrived at the Pegasus (however many city ships), they had no reason to utilize Ring Tech...

My question is: What could the Lantians possibly use Ring Tech for, when they have those rooms that transport you anywhere in the city? (The ones from The Storm).

well as we aint seen any type of ancient beam technology rings wuld be very useful say beamin from orbit etc, so far the closets have only worked within the city, rings can transport to anywhere on the planet.

They should be, as long as there is something to intercept the matter stream and rematerialize the object, they should both work on the same principle, just like the Wraith darts capture nets work with exactly the same principle as the stargate, like we saw in Duet.
It's just a question of, are they capable of receiving external transportation requests. You would need some kind of security feature that doesn't allow just anything to come and go as it pleases, you wouldn't want the Wraith suddenly popping in since we know they've mastered demolecularization technology evident with their capture nets.

It would be cool to have them in one episode when they go off planet if they went to an old outpost or something but it doesn't need to be a staple of Atlantis, we have all kinds of other transporters for that.

I may well be wrong, but I was under the impression that transport rings are Go'uld technology and therefore as no Go'uld are in Pegasus there wouldn't be any rings either. The omnipedia seems to suggest they are Go'uld...

"A Ring Transporter (or ring teleporter) is a transportation device originally developed and used by the Ancients but now manufactured and used almost exclusively by the Goa'uld and their enemy, the Tok'ra."

Remember that the Goa'uld are scavengers, they take other people's technology and make it their own.

I think it'd be neat to see them on ships as a backup transportation system.

Personally, I think they're not used as much anymore for cost.

Thinking fx, it'd be cheaper to do the asgard beam than the ring tech, or at least it'd seem that way. They probably only did the rings for so long because the movie already showed them.

There's always Season 3 to look forward to. You never know when the ring transporter might be used again.

Since Atlantis has the transporter closets, it cuts down the need for Rings. However, as someone else mentioned, Rings would still be good for quick transport between a ship in orbit and a planet's surface. Maybe we'll see someone use Rings to transport from the Orion to Atlantis in season 3.

Are we sure that the rings came from the Ancients originally? The Goa'uld could have pirated them off of another race.

No, it's definately Ancient. For one, the Ori had them, and for another, the cavern beneath Glaston Tor had them, and it was host to Ancient treasure.

Because the Pegasus galaxy is a newer inhabitation, you would expect upgraded techs... rings may have been outdated where transporters came in, hence why you may not see them.
