Am I the only one who got giddy at the thought of a cool ass robot spider in a future episode?

Is it bad? Will it be a Villian? or is it going to be like a Kino on steroids?

I got the feel like were like little ships. Maybe for repairing the outside of the ship or maybe Destiny's form of combat ships.

You ever seen Men In Black?

It's like the locker incident.

That ship has little people living inside of it.

I like the idea of the unnamed future plot device being a robot. Or maybe it's a medical device, one that might be able to help bring Franklin out of his coma. Hey, maybe it's both. God knows TJ could use the help.

It makes perfect sense to me that the Destiny would have some automated repair system. Maybe it was broken when that race was trying to get on the ship before so that's why its not up and working at the moment. Or it could be a internal defense device. Who knows but I am leaving more towards a non combative device.

I don't see the robots as an automated repair system. They are stored in boxes, and clearly powered down. They are not in "on duty inactive status."
There has to be lots of goodies stored on Destiny, for when the Ancients would eventually show up to Destiny. Slowly we're finding it, the shuttles, suits, chair, lol robots....and whatever else the writers come up with.
I'm like everyone else, I want to see what their for. I'm holding out for early replicator tech.

Here's the summary from the casting slides or something:
There are twelve FTL (Faster Than Light) drive modules on the Destiny and one has exploded due to an overload. Scientist Eleanor Perry, Nicholas Rush, and Eli Wallace propose that this is a good thing since the assumption is that the weakest engine failed and is not left to drag the others down. But, they're still going to have to repair the damage and bypass the drive's controls, so they prepare a robot to ensure that the ship can make it across the void between galaxies. They propose that either Col. Young or Lt. Scott carry the robot in the Ancient Shuttle to the damaged area.

Everyone stares at him; Scott shakes his head.

Eli: Like in Star Wars! R2D2.

Rush and Young, totally united: We're not calling it that.

i do not...BSG was (IMHO - and yes it maybe just my oppinion, but it still is :) ) the worst science fiction in the last years (i hate people mixing science fiction with higher powers (god!) if we never see that higher power at work (we do in SG-1 and Atlantis, so that's something i like again, higher power but a higher power you can see, touch and if necessary fight and kill!))

as for the thing: I'd still say it is a repair-robot :) and i still think rush should have that "thing" looked at imidiately (repairing the ship (power distribution, hull breaches, weapons...etc.) would have done some good for all aboard....i still want to know what he did instead (hell he had 4 WEEKS to inspect almost all of the ship and somehow i get that he didn't do something important as there was nothing on the screen :(

greetings LAX
ps: protection from dialing to destiny? - well maybe you need some sort of special dialing device (didn't they have a remote dialing device on the "gate"-episodes?) to be able to establis a wormhole to the ship (like an advanced GDO build right into the gate system...with the exception of 9th chevron gates....)

I doubt they're prepared but at the same time they probably don't see it as a possibility since it took them so much time and energy to dial it in the first place. Sure someone nearby could dial in but from what we've seen the galaxy they're in seems to be lacking in DHD's

April 26th, 2010, 01:26 PM
Possibly a first version of Replicator being used to built the stargate. Probably the same version carried by the seeder ship. So. Destiny too capable to add a new stargate on a new planet like the one they just found in this episode. They just need to locate the raw material or they just build it on the ship.
