I was just watching Lifeline, and I realized something that could be considered a goof on the part of the writers. When Sheppard, McKay, Ronan, and Weir went to the Replicator Homeworld, they activated a field to disrupt the nanites in the Replicators.

Since the field emanated from the jumper, and Weir was inside the jumper, shouldn't the field have affected the active nanites inside of her?

That is definitely an interesting catch there. Now, I'll have to re-watch to find the answer. It's a good ep anyhoo. :vala:

em i dont think that would be an issue the field works on the same principal as the ARG's . that it disrupts the bonds between the replicator parts rendering them enert . but the nanites in wier dont actually form together into blocks or parts . they work as inidividuals . also i dont think the shield starts from the centre of the jumper . it would eminate from the hull outwards in the general shape of the jumper .anything already inside the bubble wouldnt have a problem only anything trying to pass through it

Something to do with Rodney altering Dr Weirs Nanites I guess? Plus the fact that she's mainly human?

No, Rodney made the field by interfacing the ARG crystal with the jumper's cloaking generator. So it should have started at the jumper's hull and then extended outward, just like the cloak would have if they simply extended the cloak to cover a wider distance.

Exactly. The field doesn't extend inside the Jumper, but instead outward from the hull.
