If McKay managed to create a human-form replicator willing to kill itself, surely he could create others in order to fix or enhance Atlantis?

Another thing: do the humans now have ZPM-building technology? (I still have to catch up with many past episodes, but I was under the impression that if SG-1 had to travel 5000 years into the past to get one, then it's still out of reach) ?

If humans can't make ZPM's, perhaps the replicators could assist in that, as the replicators had many ZPM's on their home planet.

As of right now they don't know how to produce ZPMs, but a line in Joe Mallozzi's poem implies that they might do later this season...

i think thery could make a limited amount of replicators since maybe they need the element neutronium like most human form reps did

i think it would be an extremely bad idea to have a bunch of replicators on Atlantis, even if Rodney insisted that he could create them so that they Wouldnt be able to communicate with other replicators or other bad things, no way would Carter or Sheppard would never allow it.

Exactly. No way Shep or Carter would allow it, even if it were possible for Rodney to 'get it right'.

Agreed i dont think it would be allowed due to possible problems

Really? Which line?

it may be this one


[...]A battle is waged on the defenderís home field,
And the means of production is fully revealed.[...]

Hmmm...interesting. I always thought that that refered to

the Wraith birth scene in Spoils of War

We'll see.

that's another possibility

Think of it now, it probably does.

Or it could mean building the replicators.

Well I don't know about Atlantis but if they find the Asothians maybe they could make a half dozen or so as full time body gaurds. They are really in no danger from someone coming in a changing thier code since very few people know how to do so, and they kick some serious Wraith ass

Also no way to guarantee the 'godzilla' replicator is fully gone, just because there was no trace when replicator weir was there, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. How many times have MacKay's 'perfect and flawless' plans gone horribly wrong.

True, but after undergoing a nuclear reaction, I doubt their still around.

Yeah, it was the "fusion bomb" of the nanites imploding in on itself that destroyed the planet in the first place.

It could be the replicator machine or it could be zpm creation who knows

Design an replicator for the sole purpose of learning to make ZPMs and to fashion them only for earth. Seems reasonable.

Could you still trust the replicator

Could also mean the production of Drones seeing as we still only have limited supplies of them as and when we find them.

Drones are as important as ZPM's is many respects.

And that is also assuming that making them does not consume lots of energy..

Or finally seeing how the Wraith create hives.

Sure , after correcting the bugs that the Lanteans didn't bother to fix in their programming .

If the Tauri can make science-oriented Asurans (with no combat protocols), everything should work out fine. It would be the next best thing to having ancients assist you.

As for combat-oriented replicators,
can't they tell the Asgard device to make classic replicators (like in the Ark of Truth) that only attack wraith? They're not vulnerable to hackers or viruses, otherwise the Asgard would have dealt with them a long time ago.

These replicators can be made to enhance current technology. Tthey made a Goa-uld hyperdrive go 500 times faster, did they not? If they can do that to Goa'uld tech, imagine a replicator-enhanced Atlantis. Boy oh boy :D

Surely Area 51 can bake a control crystal for that in notime.

I don't see this happening in the series, as it wouldn't be Stargate Atlantis, it would be Bug's Mansion.

Yep. They needed them as weapons, but implemented too much knowledge into them - so that they became self-aware and unstable. Instead of abandoning the project, the logical thing should have been redoing their programming and strip it to the bare essentials needed to accomplish the mission. That's what i meant by "fix the bugs", because it's a clear case of flawed programming which should be fixable .

I think Lanteans used nanites to construct there ships and cities and such. And maybe healing. Then one day a doctor was like, "They can repair cells why can't we use them to destroy the cells of Wraith."
