There doesn't seem to be a puddle jumper or a gate in that video.

It's circular, but the visual effects have been screwed up and they've put 8 chevrons on the gate instead of 9, and they shouldn't all be lit up either...

You sure? I'm pretty sure all the chevrons light up when the gate's active.

A chevron lights up for every symbol dialed, or at least they did.

Although there are a few shots in Atlantis were they all light up...

The gate is circular on the inside and the outside, the chevrons are the only things making it look octagonal.

It seems the gate is also using Milky Way insignia. :mckay:

Oh God... those do look like Milky Way symbols, not Pegasus ones.

I think your eyes are not tricking you because I see the exact same thing. :mckay:

Only 8 chevrons? The CGI folks dropped the ball on this one. Maybe thats why people claim the outside looks kind of straight edgewise? Also where are the three pods thats suppose to supply power to this space gate?
