The Alterans are/were human like the rest of us. I'm sure that aside from the sophisticated technology and refined points of their civilization, having a nice, warm blankie at night was an essential technological and intellectual necessity. ;)

The Ancients had all the beds made before they launched The Destiny, not to be used for 100,000s if not millions of years.

Unless others have been onboard The Destiny before!

The only thing missing was a bouquet of flowers and a box of dark chocolate for each set of quarters. If they did that, the Ancients would have really been styling. Oh wait, they did have the domed chamber in Air Part 2--the room I've nicknamed the Thunderdome. Surely the Thunderdome had other uses than just as a possible meeting/lecture hall? ;)

If it's true that the Ancients never actually boarded Destiny after it was launched, then there was very little airflow or movement to stir up dust particles. In a sealed environment like a starship, any dust mites, weavles, or any sort of nibbling creature actually surviving the interveaning millions of years or so is highly unlikely.

All in all, Destiny was most likely as good as freeze-dried during it's trip through deep, deep, deep space. :)

I thought about the bedding as well, but I realize it's just TV show and thought either they were already there or were in one of the containers they brought with them.

It's no big deal to me. I'm not going to over think bedding on the show. Having bedding in one of the containers they brought on board is way more likely than traveling through a wormhole to a star ship across the universe that travels faster than light.

Jper
October 26th, 2009, 09:39 AM
I think the actual beds were already there. And I think those beds could easily have been constructed in a manner or created from a material so that they would still be here, after all these years. The sheets they probably brought with them. :)

It would have been pretty boring to seem them haul all that material through the gate, and also sorting all of that material out, as to distribute it for all members.

I think maybe we're finding out that the Destiny is a nursery ship. Inhabitants expected to be about 5 years old.

The ship seems to take care of itself, and its inhabitants without much intervention.

Lots of cuddly blankies.

Having nice plush accommodations available would fit well with my current theory on the Destiny's actual purpose.

Not sure if it's really a spoiler because I have no idea if it's true but I'll throw some tags up if you wish to skip:

Follow me on this...

Ancients sent seed ships to survey systems and plant gates at possibly habitable planets.

Ancients sent Destiny to follow those ships and put a stargate aboard so they could dial the Destiny and gather information about those systems and planets from it remotely.

The Destiny does NOT have the power to dial back to the Earth once sufficiently far away, the ancients would have known this. That makes any boarding of the ship, a one way trip.

There are crew quarters, life support, water reserves, etc and shuttle craft to support a crew at least temporarily. These could easily have been replenished from earth.

That leads me to the conclusion that it is effectively a roaming hotel to temporarily house ancient colonists of distant galaxies.

Personally, I don't think the Ancients would have problems with dialing back and forth between earth and the Destiny. For them the 9th chevron is not a mystery at all, but just a feature.

They still would need the right amount of energy though. I hope this (dialing back to Earth and why this isn't possible now there's enough energy now) will be addressed in the upcoming episode, "Water". Hopefully it will. :)

The ancients bulid to last I have no problem accepting the ancients could create super duper bead sheats. I have a feeling the Destiny was the ultimate creation of the Ancients. The be all end all of their knowledge. They would spare no expense, it would be thier ultimate legacy. Then when it finally went on its mission this happend.

"Hey guys! Fred just converted to pure energy!"

and Destiny was promptly forgotten.

close to 95% of dust is actually skin cells and particulate of hair/animal fur. Without people or animals on board, there would be very little, if any, dust on board. Also, if the fabrics are synthetic they could last plenty of years in what would have been a fairly sterile environment of a ship flying through space. Especially if they are made of carbon nanotubes enmeshed in microfiber, technology we are currently only just now figuring out how to use, but the ancients could have already had for generations.

Also, I would expect we will be finding some sort of arboretum somewhere on destiny in the near future. God, I hope it has squirrels that were left to evolve alone on the ship for a few million years!

Whitering

Lots of dust is just shed human skin. We shed constantly, it's just tiny and gets everywhere through our vent systems. Then we have random dirt coming into our houses, also, brought home by us. Spiders put their funky webs everywhere, but they still must have sustenance to survive. Destiny may also have been very cold prior to kicking on the life support.

I know movies and tv shows like the dramatic moment of blowing dust off an old book or something, but if it is an airtight environment like a ship, with advanced air filtration, and no people around to mess things up, the ship just wouldn't get dusty.

It's probably getting dusty now though, especially after all the crap they brought back from the desert planet.

Wool/silk mixes have very long term durability, especially when nobody is sweating on them and the presence of bugs is minimized.

I'd be more concerned with whether there are dry cleaning facilities aboard, or lets hope they were not leaking certain fluids anywhere. That stuff doesn't go away by itself, it's basically high density proteins. Just ask Bill Clinton.

Christians don't believe in Birth Control.

You mean Catholics, right? I know plenty of Protestants, including pastors, who absolutely advocate birth control for married couples who aren't interested in having children, at least right away. For us, it's pretty common sense. That's why many Protestant families I've met have about 2-3 kids and no more than that, while many Catholic families I've encountered have many more kids.

Putting Christians under the same umbrella, especially when the theology and practice subtly varies from group to group, isn't accurate. For one thing, Christian groups aren't as monolithic as people would like to think. If you think I'm wrong about this, I'd like to see you convince a few Southern Baptists and Pentacostals I'm acquainted with to recognize the "authority" of the Pope and Rome in general.

There's a whole 'nother big thread about Christianity and sex and stuff. This thread is ostensibly about the super-convenience of the blankets. Then it got diverted into speculation of what other conveniences the Ancients might have included, what our team brought with them, etc.

I was just thinking maybe it would be best to keep this thread on a bit lighter "will they all wear the same shade eyeshadow" kind of note.

You know, if they can devote minutes of screen time to the Senator's wife and Young's wife and other emo stuff, I think they can devote some time to the REALLY interesting questions. The things that you wonder about just as you're dropping off to sleep:

What are Ancient washing machines like?
Material to patch uniforms?
Tampons, Razors, Deodorant?
Blow Dryers, Hairspray?
Mascara, lotion?
Ovens? Loaf pans for bread? Yeast for bread or beer?

You know, with Atlantis, they were marooned but had these other civilizations that would trade supplies. These guys are stuck with nothing. Sure, it's only a few days so far, but this is a B story I'd like to see. Including some sort of comparison between their predicament and that of Atlantis.

Will they explore Destiny and find all of these supplies and so become "dressed like Ancients"? That could be cool. And of course I don't expect the women to go without makeup. This is SciFi TV after all - the women have to be pretty, it's a law.

Definitely some interesting questions. We were always presented with only little slivers of information about the Ancients and their culture. Yes, they were the gate builders and they were so enlightened that they achieved ascension but what I wanted to see more about the Ancients as people. I'm sure the Destiny could give some interesting clues about their lifestyle, like their eating habits, what they would consider good bathrooms, etc. Yes, they were technological masters but they were still people. I hope to see more development of their culture along that angle.

The way I see it, if interstellar ships older than the human race are possible, then bringing a few blankets through the gate with them is completely possible! Maybe the person in charge of doing all the purchasing for Icarus base was like..."hmmm, ok...we've already speant a badjillion dollars on this base, whats a few thousand more for some stylish blankets?"

And as far as what is already stored on Destiny? I see the crew eventually finding some crates with some Ancient-wear in them. Although the style is probably out of fashion, it is better than the old and dirty clothing the crew has on right now!

Simple explanations 101:

1. They carried crates through with them, most likely carrying all the rations etc they'd need for a while (would expect these to run out at some point)

2. The destiny before they arrived had no life support running, no need to as there were no passengers, you even see it all lighting up in the opening sequence of "Air". No life support = no air, no air (ie. CO2 or O2) no mould, or bacteria growth, also no heat to support any of this either (internal temp of destiny with no life support would equal that of the space around it).

3. The absence of heat and air would explain why the sheets etc wouldn't be mouldy or rotten, they would be perfectly preserved in the near absolute zero temperatures of space.

4. Lack of things like birth control aboard, would actually be a good issue for the show to do deal with along the line. Because the bringing of new life into the situation could severely upset the food rationing etc.

Crates with blankets and bedsheets? Nah, don't buy that. After all, up until the last moment, they were thought they were heading to Earth. "Oh my god, I must remember to take my 500-count Eygptian cotton sheets back with me." Nah... ;)

Lack of air might work for the non-dryrot sheets.

I doubt the writers will tackle birth control. Just my guess.

Yeah, but they might be the blankets for the guest quarters. :) The blankets Chloe and her father would have had. Or the other non-military members who are pretty high up in the chain of command. Eli's blankets look very much more like standard military reserve blankets.


They were escaping and I don't think they had time to grab any blankets and pillows with them.

Sure they had. Everyone was told to pack. Maybe they did not have much time, but they had some. :)


Besides the fancy blankets and pillows looked really more like Teyla's belongings than military.

Yeah, but they might not belong to the military or they might but therefore they shouldn't be survival blankets. There are other sorts as well, I would guess.


I also wonder what is this powder they are making this liquid food of?

Protein powder?


And how much did they take it with them while escaping?

We don't know exactly but quite a lot I guess. We see them sorting everything in "Air".


Or how come there was (warm) water for Chloe to take a shower while the ship itself was so powerless, that even lights went down and all the other equipment seemed to stop working?

As Eli said, the showers don't use water.

CO2 or O2) no mould, or bacteria growth, also no heat to support any of this either (internal temp of destiny with no life support would equal that of the space around it).

Actually there were bacteria. They produced CO2. And the Destiny did use the scrubbers to filter the air as to get rid of the CO2. That's why the CO2 scrubbers weren't just unused after these million years. That's why they were in need of replacement of the CO2 capturing substance. There is actually a whole thread about the CO2 scrubbers:

3. The absence of heat and air would explain why the sheets etc wouldn't be mouldy or rotten, they would be perfectly preserved in the near absolute zero temperatures of space.

Unlikely as the life support was running the whole time. I would never have been able to just switch on as someone arrived, it would need to be significantly turned when someone arrived, but still the rooms would have needed to be pressurized, filled with atmosphere. And it could not be too cold in there.


4. Lack of things like birth control aboard, would actually be a good issue for the show to do deal with along the line. Because the bringing of new life into the situation could severely upset the food rationing etc.

Well, we still have the whole Alaina Huffman being pregnant and TJ-Young things.
