In the episode First Contact the stargate in Atlantis blew up. I noticed magically in Inquisition they had one in their gate room again. And not just any stargate but the same design as the previous one they had. To me it isn't some gate they were just able to harvest from some abandoned planet. Is this a major plot hole or did I just miss the explanation?

They got a new one obviously.
And who ever designs the sets probably was just hoping no one would notice if it was actually the same one.

Are the gates necessarily different in design? The main problem now, is that their original gate from Atlantis was the only gate that was able to dial earth directly.

Atlantis had a standard Pegasus Stargate. The new one came from the galactic Stargate bridge. It wasn't the Stargate that was unique, it was the DHD. Either the DHD control crystal survived, or Atlantis has a few spare crystals.

Yes the control crystal was in the DHD and they pretty much confirmed that it survived in "The Lost Tribe" - At the very end of the episode Daniel stated that Landry wanted him to recover back on Earth. Mckay responded by saying the Daedalus picked up a gate from the old gate bridge and his team was installing it as they speak so they'd "have him home in no time." So since they sent Daniel back to Earth through the gate we know it wasn't damaged when that piece of debree fell on the console.

I believe malozzi said that the control crystal necessary for intergalactic gate travel survived the explosion

I see that they managed to remodel the entire Control Room, yes it's of the same design but they have mounted on new lights on the walls to make the control room brighter, new conference table which looks nice and of course, the gate room is fixed like brand new, literally, cleaner staircases, everything looks clean.

It seems like enjoy blowing up the gate room every once in a while so they can "shake things up" by remodeling it. It's "Extreme City Make-Over: Atlantis Edition"!.

Ty Pennington are you here? LOL

Sure it looks really really nice and all, hell I want to live in it! It looks so 21st century modern apartment architectural design that I've always wanted. The whole light-airy, bright, spacious apartment with light colours with the touch of Maple or Oak wood; but it would be nice to see the repair team actually make repairs instead of showing us techs playing with the servers as shown in this episode.

In fact did they repaint the staircase railings as well from a light grey to a darker grey?

They mentioned that they will bring a stargate from the old Gate Bridge.

Where did the gates in the gate bridge come from?

The gate bridge gates are ordinary Pegasus spacegates stargates that were taken from uninhabited planets.
On the Milky Way side of where Midway used to be they used ordinary Milky Way gates.

What's the deal with the retartedly huge sigs that some of you have?!
Totally off topic, but I just saw this for the first time and laughed out loud. I think that all the time. Nothing like waiting for 3000 images to load so you can read a topic. :D
