I was thinking that, would it be possible to canabilize some of destinys unessential systems... chip small bits of naquadah off of every stargate that they come across... put it all together and build some sort of primitive naquadah generator??

It may not be able to power the shields or weapons enough to make a big difference in battles with the Blues or anyone, but they could use it to explore more sections of the ship, maybe turn the light dimmer switch up a bit (the ship is always so dark..) and possible use it to extend the distance that destiny can dial (assuming that its a power issue, might not be but you never know)

...maybe....if the gates are even made of naqaudah...which i assume they are....

The naquadah the gates are made of has been made inert and it takes a great amount of energy to force fission (Anubis' gate destroyer, Attero device) so it wouldn't work.

Also even if they manage to extend Destiny's gate range they wouldn't be able to get back.

natural lighting. the SG1 and SGA sets always had.... unnatural lighting. you know, as if a big light was there just to follow them

A Naquadah generator is probably quite complicated to construct, I doubt it is something the crew could just coble together from spare parts on the ship, (unless O'Neill does his MacGyver trick again with an Ancient repository) ;)

Or just have an expert come on board and do it for them. :P

How do you break the gate? Last time it took at Mark IX, carefully placed.

Probably disassemble it. After all, they have screws. :P Of course, this is MW gates. :P
