In the episode we see that the Asurans still had their Aurora Class Ship, so what the hell happened to it?

Isn't it kind of dangerous to have such a powerful ship just laying out there, waiting for the Wraith to find it. I thought Elizabeth would have told them were it was. But then again, it would probably just get blown up in the next episode. :)

Since Weir was the leader of this group of Replicators she probably understood the dangers of leaving that ship anywhere in the galaxy unprotected (if the warith find it it may give them the technology to reach Earth).
so before they went ahead with their 'ascension' to subspace she probably set the ship's autodestruct to blow up after they finish uploading themselves to subspace.

once there became energy based life forms it was probably just discarded

They probably destroyed it I guess, either before their subspace ascencion or afterwards trying to crawl back into its computer systems

Really I automatically assumed it was self-destructed. It's definitely the kind of thing Weir would choose to go with.

There must be some sort of curse on that class of ship.

It's a wee depressing. My mother's name is Aurora.

To be fair, it may not be the actual name of the ship class. Even though the Asuran Keller mentioned it by name, it would seem too out of place to call that type of ship based on the first one that they encountered.

It's one thing that really gets at me.

True. While I'd like on the one hand for it to be the official designation because it's always nice when Stargate has solidity, from a selfish perspective I'm hoping we one day learn something altogether different about their name...

^ Especially since it's not the only class.

They probably fried it's systems in a futile attempt to descend. If that's the case, it's probably just a tin can in space now.

I bet if it is still around that its most likely on the planet that the replicators dialed and thought they were going too, if they were going to construct human bodys they would need a power source as well as a place to work and the ship would make a great location.

It would be worth checking out that planet.

Maybe the official designation is the Hippafaralcus Class war ship. ;)

The don't need to set the selfdestruct to automatic, they can do it afterwards. Just do the same thing as they did to atlantis.

You still also have to wonder about the base they created on the planet they used to conduct their ascension "research".

It's a wee depressing. My mother's name is Aurora.Why is that depressing? Did a group of Asurans have their way with her and left her on some alien planet?

(Just kidding)

Anyway, the Asurans probably cannibalized the ship's systems to build their ascension lab, then blew it up when they all ascended.
