In "Shades of Gray", when Jack is talking to Alex for the first time, there is something that looks an awful lot like Ancient tech behind them, Looks like a ZPM prototype or something! Anyone else know what Im talking about?

Ok, Found a picture: http://www.stargatefan.com/episodes3/0318/images/278.jpg

Woah.....it was probably unintentional in it's resemblance, but good spotting.:jack_new_anime07:

She says it's an antigravity pod, nothing more.

Well anti-gravity can still be used as a power source:mckay: Perhaps they were experimenting with different types of power production before they settled on Zero Point Energy?:mckay:

Has anyone ever thought that TPTB may have had the art department take some old props apart and construct new ones from the pieces of old ones?

Yeah, thats probably what happened but within the world of Stargate, if they run into that again, they'll be like "Hey, you know what that looks like?"

I might be wrong, but I thought that the Goa'uld didn't know the significance of the ZPM (I'm thinking back to Zero Hour). Which means it would have nothing to do with a ZPM.....

I concur, it's probably a coincidence.

I found another bit of coincedental Ancient tech! In 2010, when Daniel is shooting the zat after Teal'c has dialled the gate, Daniel hides behind some lights that look alot like the lights in Atlantis!

well you cant expect them to spend a whole bunch of money on a prop and never use it again. they used the set for tollana as the same set as caprica on BSG

Actually, I think both scenes were just filmed at UBC.....kind of a permanent set.....;)

I really don't want to re watch the episode, what was the use of that device? Perhaps the reason they look alike is they both have something to do with subspace....

I don't think so- I'm pretty sure BSG was credited with being filmed at UBC (that's what it said on the channel that aired the mini), and that's definitly the same place.

Alright well nobody answered my question so I answered it for myself.

The device is a anti gravity device it has nothing to do with subspace. I would suspect it was mad by the ancients however it has a totally different use than a zpm. Which leads me to believe that those crystals are simply for holding mass amounts of energy.
