I'd love to see Stephen Hawking come to Atlantis, and have them write him to dwarf McKay's intellectual & scientific levels. Somewhere in between Asgard & McKay/Carter, roughly just under the Tollan.

I realize that no real scientist is even in the same stratosphere as McKay, but this is SciFi. It would just be nice to see a Tau'ri garnering his respect like that, plus I think the world's foremost expert on Astrology/Cosmology/Physics would have a place in Atlantis. Just a guest spot would be cool.

McKay: Listen up, we've been working on deciphering this laboratory's use for the past 2 months. So I am assigning Zelenka's team here for long-term study, along with 1/3 of my department.
Hawking (interjects): Done.
McKay: WHAT?
Hawking: I've written a 1200 page report on the exact function of this laboratory when it was operational. The last 300 pages are precise directions on how to operate the systems with 22% greater efficiency than the Atlantean technique.
McKay: .....

I think it would be cool for someone like Hawkings to show up, and for us to find out he's working on some secret project for the Air Force. Perhaps he's working on McKay's new math and such.

Even have some disaster where McKay and Hawking are forced to work together to solve a problem, but despite his smarts, Hawking still manages to be a step ahead of Mckay.

Hawking is a step ahead of himself?


'Twould be cool to see him on Atlantis, for any purpose (Him outsmarting Mckay, Mackay outsmarting him, either will be hella funny).

I've been doing that a lot lately.

One step ahead of McKay.

Nah I think he is best left to Star Trek... and Futurama! :D

Also I think he is more a celebrity these days as apposed to a scientist, shame really. :cool: :rolleyes:

Given what has been experienced in SG-1 or Atlantis. I seriously doubt someone who hasn't left the planet or who works for ther SGC could be classed as the world's foremost expert on anything.

I'd say Carter would whip him while sleeping, not to mention probably all the scientists at Area 51, Atlantis etc. He's only working with theories, while they are working with fac!

I was hoping someone would propose this idea. I have been thinking about what do do with my new fanfic stories, and I have been mulling an appearance by Stephen Hawking in Atlantis. Inspiration Again!

I guess J_B didn't read your post either... Agreed SaberBlade. J_B, when has it been stated that Stephen Hawking doesn't work for the Air Force? They could say he's been working w/ Area 51 for years.

The Tollan are just humans, McKay and Carter would still be geniuses by their standards...

Okay, as that sentence says, I was referring to knowledge & comprehension of the sciences (Physics, Cosmology, and Astrology).......

I think it would be better if they found an planet with fairly average people, but this one guy has like incredible ability to learn and understand... enter Hawking. He comes back to Atlantis and within a matter of weeks he has read, expanded on and surpassed all of Mckays stuff, of course making Mckay beyone jealous. Gotta throw in a plot twist, like he has a super advanced brain cuz of some freak mutation, but that also caused his physical ailments, and it is getting progressively worse. He saves the day (perhaps the people from his world and Atlantis from an attack from the Wraith or Asurans) with his superior intelect, but is forced to sacrifice himself in the process (he fixes and uses some Ancient weapon that he knows will overload and kill him when used but does it anyways).

Maybe he's not dealing with theories. We've seen Carter deal with "theories" before in 'Prodigy' when she told students they should just accept her theory as fact, and then the equation would make sense, despite the fact she couldn't actually tell them how her theory was true, how she came to it or anything.

Within the show, all of Hawkings theories on blackholes, relativity, singularities and such could be Hawking working for the US Air Force and he's incorporating truths as theories, just like Carter has done.

Highlighted parts sound eerie familiar... Jonas Quinn anyone?

He was a quick study and according to Nirrti's machine he was a few steps higher on the ladder of evolution than us wee human beings.

yep, I thought the same thing. + why would an alien get access to all of Earth's knowledge?

Blasphemy !!! :D

I think Carter and McKay both would strutter like elementary school students if they found themselves face to face with Professor Hawking; hey, maybe they would forge an alliance against him...

Anyway, I've read Stephen Hawking's books and he has a great sense of humor so I think he would be willing to do it ( maybe he would guest-star for free ! ) However the logistics for the whole thing would be near to impossible to manage, because of Hawking's schedule and his health. But I'd love to see him wearing an Atlantis expedition blue uniform !

Too bad Atlantis doesn't have a holodeck like the Enterprise. Remember Data's poker game ? :cool:

You could also upload Carl Sagan and Richard P. Feynman...

And when I mentioned the holodeck, I meant something like the one on the Enterprise or in the DS9 station. On the very first episode, the Atlantis expedition was greeted by this hologram, so yeah, there must be holographic tech...

Yeah, but Atlantis isn't handicapped by an, "in the distant future" timeline/storyline. We could have the real guy there alive and kic.... er..um... ALIVE!
