View Full Version : Use of comms stones during pregnancy

You know who - TJ and baby from Destiny.
Human female on Earth.

Ancient long-range communication stones - SGC modified.

What is going to happen?

Are there safeguards in place to make sure no harm comes to a foetus?
Has a blended Goua'ld/Tokra ever used the stones - I don't recall it.
Would only the mother's conciousness get transferred? I don't know much
at all about pre-term nueropsychology but I'm thinking WOW - the risk of harm seems high BUT they do seem pretty bug-free tech (apart from the caveats of loss of
connections that seems impossible to overcome).

So what do you think?

woah. I didn't even think of that. I'm most worried about what would happen to the baby's consciousness during a transfer. At what point is the brain even developed enough that the stones would recognize it? They seem to adaptable to several different types of intelligent lifeforms, is there a cut off point?

If the baby's mind did transfer, that would mean someone's mind would be in the foetus. ...ew.

Well, seeing as Ancients probably reproduced like humans, seeing as Ancients and Humans could breed, the Ancients probably accounted for this.

since when does TJ use the stones?

anyway i dont think it would affect you as its the mother who touches the stone and creates the link. sure the baby is inside the mother but i dont think that matters

Vala used them when she was pregnant with Adria. That must have been an interesting experience for Daniel...

Could this be a way to side step gen-memories, such as the way of 2 Gould hosts make one with all the memories that the parents have?

This is a really interesting question, TJ hasn't used the stones though and I haven't read the episode guide but don't think they will.

Especially fter what happened with the aliens! They're probably going to be very cautious

Either way like escyos says, it's the mother who touches the stones no the baby.
