Is the ZPM on atlantis actually depleted? because if it is, they didnt really show any extra cool technology that came with it, as in when the ZPM was plugged in... only that they found the Aurora and that was pretty much it


ZELENKA: How much power did we drain from the ZeeP ... M?
(He trails off as he sees the screen. Jeanie looks at the screen and
stares in shock. Its message reads, "ZPM Module depleted. 0%."
McKAY (appalled): All of it. (He groans.) I drained all of it.
JEANIE: You did the right thing.
McKAY: Hmm. Well, I suppose I would've done the same thing for ...
me.
(All the screens go off, then all the lights go out and the room is
plunged into darkness. A moment later some of the lights come back
on again as the city switches from ZPM power to naqahdah generators.)
McKAY: I am so fired.

The expedition is back to square one, but at least they have Daedalus.








For now.

theroticaly it should never run out, but we have had that argument in another thread so lets not have it here


my question is what now? Weir gave them that list of planets with known ZPMs didnt she, should they start hitting those now?

They'll begin looking for a power source more efficient than a zpm.

They've already checked those planets.

I am pretty annoyed with this as <I>sparkygate</I> said at the start of this thread we have still only seen a minute very small fraction of powerful technologies that are hidden in atlantis and requires zpm power.

The whole point of the atlantis story is so that we can discover uber cool technologies that the ancients had and use them against a very powerful enemy. But now well into season 3 were back to square one with all that shows potential laid to waste.

well we know they get more because of the spoilers of the Tao of Mcay . im hoping that the writers aknowlege that the ZPMs cant run out of power and later put all the "depleted" ZPMs together and can withdraw a minor charge that would last indefinately.

we would have around 7 to draw power from if they ever choose to explore this.

If they where going to cancel a show why did it have to SG-1 there the stories actually make sense

The only redeeming quality SGA has is it has McKay on it, other than the rare good episode

listen even i'm a worn out zpm b/c people have been using me too much. Football = mckay using for his science projects.
school = database
senior video = monthly check-in with earth
graduation tests= mckay and mrs. miller equations being runned through my processors.
my mother being the SUPER-B*tch she is= the wraith shooting at my beatiful city
I'm ready to be depleted!!!!!!!!!!

Power status at 5%

The thing that needs to be found is a ZPM Charger or Creator.

the tao of mckay sounds good and submersion it was possible mentioned that they were finding another source of power than a zpm. but i might be wrong

No, it really doesn't, not unless you want Atlantis to end.

Well they could have had at least one ZPM as having none makes you tune on that much... i mean you know because i myself would like to see very cool technology being used by us... and also more on the ancients itself

i dont see whay they some how copy the database and paste into a person mind then you can say 'where are the zpm's' then he would either dial planets or show us where to make one

ZPMs seem to store power drawn from subspace. They don't tap into subspace themselves.

Sheppard will pay a visit to Dagan's Brotherhood and snatch their damn juicy ZPM.
Burn them to ashes if necessary. Har.
