It is reported in Travelers that this new race that captures Sheppard is in possession of a Ancient battleship.

Do you think this is an Aurora class or one we haven't seen like some of the ships attacking the Replicator planet in 3x05.

Will we blow up this ship? Could we steal/borrow/get it from this new race. Will we get drones, weapons, or zpm's from this ship?

Lets speculate on this ship that we will find in Travelers.

Probably get blown up in someway or another...

You know TPTB never lets the main team of either SG1 or SGA keep the big cool toys they find, (except Atlantis itself).

Well i think that this is the new powerful race in Pegasus.

We want new class! We want new class!

Why am I even trying... TPTB (could someone tell me what those 4 letters stand for?) is so stuck with Aurora class ships.. :mckay:

I think you might be pleasantly suprised, I'm sure Joe said it was a similar ship to the Aurora, so it might be slightly different, like the ones we see in Progeny.

I have a feeling it will be one of the ships seen in Progeny.

It could be a later version of the Aurora class but with a few improvements to try to better counter the wraith.

Well I'm really looking forwards to seeing this ship, I'm a sucker for anything Ancients.

Don't fix it if its not broken. But in the other hand the Aurora class is one hell of a ugly ship.

So, new ship, new ship, new ship.

Omg its going to be an Aurora. It will be like the Apollo.

I hope for one of those new ones from Progeny, though I think it'll just be another aurora. And more then likely it gets blown to bits at the end.

I would keep that thing away from the expedition at all costs.

I want somethign sleek and purty like the insides of teh auroras. Something big and white and wavy that looks fragile as an oragami duck but takes dozens of hits before breaking.

Would you be referring to the hull?

Interesting. That's how I always pictured Ancient vessels before seeing the Aurora. Personally, I'd have gone for something like the Whitestars from B5, only bigger and more powerful...

Who knows? Maybe the aurora was the UGLY class and they just havent found the planet with all the pretty ships? Atlantis is certainly pretty, so we know they CAN do it.


Then again weve gotten pretty ships on other scifi shows, maybe TPTB did something NEW by making the most advanced ships look like something my dog leaves on the lawn?

The new race problably won't give up their warship, they just want a Sheppard to teach them how to use it. Altough why they have to kidnap him for that, can't they just ask the Atlantis expedition for help?

And does anyone know what happend to the Tria? As i understood it, the Ancients returend to Atlantis on the Deadalus. Does this mean the ship is still in between two galaxies? If the ship is still there, all they would need to do is fix the hyperdrive, and the Atlantis expedition will have it's Ancient warship.

Chances are it will be a new ship, or at least an updated version of 'Aurora'.

Spoilers for 'Aurora' & 'Inferno' said simply about a warship. So I'm guessing it'll be the other class that was seen attacking Asuras in 'Progeny'.

We know they had more powerful warships that 'Aurora'. However I can't see them having lots of different classes of warships. Perhaps 'Aurora' was the most common, then there was the other one in 'Progeny'. If that was the more powerful class, then it's probably one of the last available as Melia said they were all destroyed.

Perhaps there is an uber ship out there, a brand new experimental model or whatever that never had a chance of being used in battle. It may even be a one-off ship.

However if these new people are to be the 50/50 men of Pegasus. Then they obviously have to get the ship. They ain't gonna be much of a threat to anyone without a big powerful ship.

So I'm betting it'll turn out like 'The Brotherhood'. Where it seems they'll get the ship, then at the last moment they will be outsmarted & they'll escape with the ship. The only other thing would be that they blow it up using the self-destruct code, or perhaps get the shields down, then Daedalus or Apolo nukes it.

The one thing I'm betting on is that Shep's team get a hold of the ship come the end of the ep!

Yeah right! Many people thought that about the Apollo including me, and what did we get?
Old shots of the Daedalus.

Would be a suprise if they dont end up destorying the warship

True. They've already lost (sometimes literally, as-in "misplaced") so many advanced alien warships. Aurora, Orion, Wraith Hiveship, Wraith Cruiser (literally misplaced), Tria (literally misplaced). It's getting ridiculous.

Personally, I'd like to see something smaller (Al'kesh-sized), nimble, w/ Atlantean drones & beam cannon tech. Maybe not neccessarily strong enough to outclass a Hive + Escorts, but w/ enough firepower to stand a chance. The problem w/ Aurora is, Atlantis doesn't have the resources to repair & man such a large ship. Even if they did it would take nothing short of 1+ ZPM(s) to properly power the ship. A smaller ship that could be more easily manned & repaired, and that could be powered by a few Mk. 2s running every system would be easier to handle. Plus if it isn't insanely powerful TPTB might actually let us keep it.

This is how I think it will work out.

We come across the people who have the ship and we'll do something good to "borrow" the ship for a while, during which time it's is repaired and made usable.

several episodes will pass with a few comments here and there about the ship and then something bad will happen and we will end up destroying it.

I will give it 3 episodes, 4 tops before the ship is destroyed. I wouldn't be surprised if it was used against the Wraith, but my bet would be it being used against the Asurians or this new race which is supposed to be introduced (if they turn out to be bad guys, which is almost a given).

Maybe they lose their original Ship, move to the battleship, become our allies, and everytime they appear we have the Ancient Ship....or both..

We might be able to keep it for the whole of season 4... that is if we can keep Sheppard & Rodnay away from it that long...

Between the two of them, they have done the most damage not only to atlantis, but destroyed all the other big toys!

Wriath ship!
UBER Ancient Gun (keeping quiet about the planet that went up with that) Ancient warhsip (and another planet)

... the list just keep on going on...:sheppard:

Oh yes...and Rodney depleted the one ZPM as well!!! :mckay:

I think they need to ship some of those white restrain jackets the mad folks use from earth for those two ...
