View Full Version : 'Yoinking the Ori Satellite'

March 4th, 2006, 07:45 AM

Theres an Ori weapon made by the Rand Protectorate right, but now that the Caledonians and Rand have now efficiently excecuted genocide on each other through a nuclear holocaust, couldn't the Odyssey bag the sattelite and send it back to Earth so that we can analyse it's sheilds and weapons? Finally we may have an answer to equipping the Odyssey, Daedalus and other Terran ships to stand a chance against the Ori using their own weapons. It would make perfect sense.

That's why it won't happen, it makes sense. We always loose out in getting things like this, ships, weapons, technology we either give them back, they get stolen or have to be destroyed for some reason. How come the Gould never had this problem when they were out there scarfing up technology?

because the goa/uld are the bad guys, they are allowed to scavange tech easily.
Otherwise we would not have to outwit them so often.

because it's orbit decayed and it fell into the atmosphere after the nuclear winter maybe

And do you really think the Ori would let us take their satelite?

I'm sure it would have some protection against us taking it, then again, who knows, maybe we'll take it the next episode. There is no way to tell right now :)

maybe we'll see it used against ori ships

Anything is possible. I know I'd use it if I could in their position.

Why not just build our own in earth orbit, After all got the plans for the device and so we can build one ourselves. Because that would make far to much sense would it now and so we wot but we should.

March 5th, 2006, 02:41 PM
Because we haven't the foggiest notion of how it's powered, and we only have a part of the plans, maybe?

I'd probably be worried that a Prior could use it remotely to attack Earth/whatever is near it.

Know we put our own command codes in place on ori satelite and use asguard encryption to stop the ori from hacking them and then put sg1 on the thing, it will never get blown up then. We power the damn thing by useing a good naquada generator it was able to power the ancient satalite.

Yeah, If I had the authority in the stargate universe, I'd have the Odyssey jump into the system launch an EM Bomb to knockout the control system on the planet, steal the Satellite by beaming it aboard the ship and jump back into hyperspace taking the it home, to be disected. Then they could use the advancements to improve their own shields and weapons. :) Of course, they won't do that. :( But really... I mean if they were going to destroy it, what moral difference would it make in stealing it? They still could. :rolleyes:

A Mark 1 Naquadah generator could power the Ancient sat weapons platform in Pegasus. That cut through a Wraith ship like a hot knife through butter, so don't see power presenting much of a problem to them. Probably it'd deplete after a few shots but I'm sure they could rig a few MKII's to run in series. 1 gets depleted then the other comes online.

The problem is that they never give them the good stuff, from the spoiers for 'Caemlot' when see Carter repairing something in space, that could be an Ancient sat that they get. However when Daedalus swung by, I'm sure it could have got Hermy to modify some sort of tractor beam or winch then towed it back to Earth, then simply upgraded it with their own tech. By doing this they could allow it to fire multiple shots etc without having to recharge for minutes on end. Although this would make it too easy because it'd take out any enemy ships that threaten Earth. Although this could provide a perfect scenaro, Earth finally gets a weapons that nobody can withstand, it finally seems like it's totally safe, then they have someone come along & tear the crap out of it. Like an Ori enhanced world that has spacefaring capabilities who are out to rid the galaxy of non believers. Only the Drones in Antartica save the day at the end. Which gets totally depleted after firing it's last salvo of Drones to take out the enemy ship. That would be a cool episode.

I would not bring it back to earth maybe an off world base. I mean the Orii had a hand in making it. It could have a fail safe like the death gliders and back fire on earth. I think they should try and get a complete set of plans or take the sat to an off world site for study. Only propblem remember they are not sure what powers the sat or any of the Orii technology

There is a pic of Carter from 'Camelot' repairing something in space which is tan coloured. Is it possible this is the Rand Satellite and that we did pinch it?
What if the Asgard, Jaffa, and Tau`ri ships that engage the Ori forces are just a delaying tactic while SG-1 get the satellite online to defend Chulak. Possible?

March 9th, 2006, 11:50 AM
Why Chulak ???

March 9th, 2006, 02:50 PM
wtf? no offense but is everyone whacked in the head lol. That pic is definetly an ancient device u can tell from the design. But it could maybe if the ori have theships internal stuff just like the ancients so i take the whacked idea lol

Mmmh, it would be a good idea to "yoink" that satellite, it had tremendous power! Ripped through the Asgard sheilds like a knife through butter! But TPTB probably don't want to give us that much of an advantage above our enemies, as proven by the destruction of the Temporal Puddle Jumper. :(
Hey, who knows, the Ori Homeworld/s probably have dozens if not hundreds of even more advanced satellites guarding it! The reason they probably have'nt nicked it yet (Gately speaking) is that:
a) Knowledge- We have no idea how it works apart from a few outdated schematics that we have.
b) Size - Wasn't it quite large? I know the Odysseus is quite large but I'm not to sure about how big the storage facilities are.
c) Failsafes The Prior probably put in failsafes tat make the Satellite explode, reactivate or turn on us if tampered with or approached.
