Did anyone notice that when the gate is activated the event horizon is grey/silver ?

Does anyone know why it's grey and not blue like SG-1's and Atlantis gates ?

Apoligises i think i have posted this in the wrong place i'm sorry to the mods. Sorry

Lighting, me thinks :S

I don't think it's any different to SG-1's gate, perhaps the limited lighting on the Destiny causes it to look greyer.

Also, there did seem to be some sort of greyscale over everything, as if the camera had been intentionally dimmed down, for a more darker and grittier feel. Not that I'm complaining, just something I noticed.

They redid the event horizon for Universe and gave it a new color treatment as well. If you'll notice, at Icarus Base the event horizon is blue but out in the deep universe it is silver.

Man these slight changes to canon really erk me.

Ok fine, different cast and mission purpose but geeze, leave the basics alone huh!

Why? This can all fit in canon...We noticed the Milky Way gates still had a dark blue color in SGU, so I simply think that the 'Universe' gates simply create a silver event horizon. Different gates, different color event horizons. Makes sense and fits in my opinion.

From what I have seen, it looks like this:

Milky Way Gates = Dark Blue
Pegasus Gates = Light Blue
'Universe' Gates = Silver

Now, if they changed the Milky Way gate and made it silver or some 'out of place color', then yes, I would agree. But we have never seen a 'Universe' gate before, so it makes sense.

To be honest, I think it looks great and makes the gate itself different from the others. :D

If the gate, regardless of the model, is designed to create a wormhole then regardless of the gate model, the basic wormhole should remain the same.

I never noticed the changes in colour between the franchises so never thought about it twice!

Either way...changes to these things are detrimental to canon as now people can say, well based on the colour of the wormhole, these certain "conditions" can now be explained in some lame ass manner.

Consistency people!

Maybe someone accidently put a grey 'memory' effect on the vfx?
or maybe it has something to do with wavelengths?
Don't know, don't care - really. Lets wait for some more shows to see if its a Universe Gate property or just the lighting.

all i can say is, the VFX/CGI gets better over time. the original wormhole and wormhole sequence is nothing like it is now

Because it looks better than it did in SG1 or Atlantis.

Why were the Milky Way ones blue still? I don't know :)

The reason for the color change is that the Destiny gate is rly old and back then they only had black and white worm-holes.

the fact that hyperspace in Pegasus is green as opposed to blue in the MW irks me more, infact i like the silvery colour. it goes better with the black and white gates and the general feel of the show.

The issue here isn't wether it looks better or not (it does imo) but the fact that its different.

My guess is theres no real reason for it other then the looks but if you really really need a reason you can try the "event horizon color is influenced by the gate itself" since different gates may create and or stabilize the event horizon in a slightly different fashion.
In the end, no one knows exactly what it would look like in reality so ;)
