Send a Puddle Jumper through the space gate and pick up FrozenAsurWeir. Fire drones at everyone else. Fly back to Atlantis. Thaw AsurWeir and have her clone herself from DNA samples no doubt taken by Beckett and Keller. AsurWeir can transmit her essense into the blank clone. Blast away the blank Fran 2.0. Wake up Weir, and send her back to Earth to live happily ever after.

Why not?

They still don't know for sure that it's her, they never did.

After being blown up, nanited, abandoned, killed off-screen, cloned, killed on-screen, resurrected as a full renegade replicator, subspaced, re-replicated and ditched in space, that'd be great :)

they could write up something like that if they wanted to, but I don't see why anyone would care about it

as it stands earth has no method of cloning itself (though they could like write up a hit on a wraith cloning facility or whatever) and probably is against cloning after seeing how the asgard end up, and there's no way they're going to keep her around as a replicator

The episode stated that Weir is capable of creating a Human body with equipment found in Atlantis. All she needs is DNA samples of her original body so she can fully restore herself. If it's OK to embrace Beckett 2.0, why not Weir 3.0? For that matter, why not Weir 2.0 from "This Mortal Coil?" :confused:

no I think it was established that a team of replicators can do it, not that 1 replicator can do it (or do it in a feasable time frame)

it would make sense (though I don't remember if this was established in past episodes) that a replicator doesn't contain all information on everything himself, but rather that they carry pieces which they can puzzle together even if relatively few in number

Because Beckett is useful.

That's fine by me.

Who needs replicators when one has McKay and useful Dr. Beckett?

And end up locked up at Area 51. Mmm yeah, sounds like a happy ending she'd want to have.

NO MORE CLONING!!!! Beckett clone was a big enough shark jump as it is........

Yeah, then she escapes, takes control of all nuclear arsenals across the globe, and blow up the planet. As the episode ends, we see RepliWeir floating amid planetary debris. The end, or is it? :P

She lied to them and led the other replicators to Atlantis who were going to sink the city if they didn't get their way.

So, um...nope.

The end.... no way, there's more to it... there always is. :p

Unless someone else happens by and picks them all up. They did say there are other hidden races out there. And then, the other 7 will be über-mad at WeirFran and Atlantis and craziness will follow.

Perhaps tptb will defrost RepliAsurWeir + do the whole download-into-an-organic-body thing. Maybe she has intell on 1 of the other advanced races, maybe even the new enemy, which the Atlantis team can use = possible episode for season 6?

as has been established by this episode it was already a significant task to fulfill even for a team of 10ish replicators WITH all or at least most of the necessary knowledge AND no need to eat/sleep/pauze/...

even if these 2 humans could do it there is no reason why the leadership would allow them to do so, as they have far more useful yet safer things to do than tinkering with replicator technology (the plan involved using nanites to create a biological body as I believe)...

(not to mention that the cloning solution will be sensitive after what happened to the Asgard and the trouble earth went through with the Ba'al clones)
