There seemed to be a lack of gates in this system meaning that the gate ship broke down somehow. wonder what happened?

It doesn't mean that the seeder ship neccesarily broke down, it just means it couldn't find many planets nearby that had a atmosphere suitable for visitation.

What the heck are you guys talking about and why is this in the Aftermath folder?

It's technically relevant. It is odd that there would be no gates along their immediate path when the last galaxy had a string that could reach about halfway across the galaxy. For there not to be any, either the seeders aren't doing their job or this galaxy is just a hell-hole.

Oh yeah!

I thought that "no gates" thing was just a plot device to make Rush's decision about stopping the ship harder, but it does work better as a foreshadowing of something screwy happening with the Seeders.

Carry on.

Space is pretty big. There being no gates in range after 4 hours travel really isn't that surprising.

Rush's issue is that there weren't any gates in range of the planet. That's a lot further down the road.

I tell you how big it is!

Think of us as a grain of sand in the universe, now think a million times smaller than that.
Were still not close. We are insignificant.
Just because the last galaxy had a lot of planets with gates it does not mean that the next one will. Every galaxy has its own stage of development.

Or perhaps that is why we caught up with it since it seems to be broke down

It looks like they'll be docking with the seeder ship. So it's not likely to have gotten to work seeding this galaxy. It's probably not the only seeder ship, but still.

Or it could just be a hell hole of a galaxy. So far volcanic hyper rotational atmosphere is the only gated place. And it's gate wasn't even working.

I don' Know about anyone else but In my opinion I would think that a seeder ship would have to be the same size as destiny or bigger. Unless it is possibly a mining ship which transports raw materials to the seeder ships. It could also be a reconneresence vessel designed soley for collecting information on the rest of the galaxy. It could also be a ship soley designed for ship maintenance, there could be a number of them designed to float between the vessels.

Why would it need to be bigger than Destiny?

At least the same size IMO given that it to has to make intergalactic jumps. Plus doing slightly more than just travel along a path. Granted that it probably doesn't have to stop as often, and other design differences.

I always thought that it'd be more of a mothership sending out lots of work drones. Not another Destiny of sorts. But certainly not too different from Destiny. But I guess we'll find out next episode (or later).

-the seeder ships don't plant gates on every planet, only on somewhat useful ones (which probably for budgetary reasons tend to come out as somewhat hospitable planets so they don't have to spend unneccesary money on the space suits all the time)

-space is big and kinda random, it would be weird if they didn't run into the occassional thinly seeded stretch every once in a while. Of course this would be fairly rare since the seeder ships should try to follow a course avoiding this, but if you're able to travel through an intergalactic void then you're not going to deliberatly steer away from intragalactic voids at all costs...

I remember reading somewhere that there were 3 seeder ships ahead od Destiny

Don't forget the one from the last episode, so that is two rather nasty planets with gates.

I think the question will be answered in the next episode. Now I'm curious as to what the seeder ships look like. It'll be funny as hell if they have a female plug like in electronics; because the Destiny is shaped like a male connector. So they plug and pray, I mean play! yay.

From the preview clip someone else posted, it looks just like the destiy without the top pyramid structure and somewhat more of a sweeping downward wings'

The ship , however, made stops in areas which it was notsuppose to. It was only because of Rush's usage of the bridge, that he made such stops to planets without gates or atleast active ones [ i.e the one where the shuttle crashed]. These stops occurred prematurely and within a relatively short amount of time meaning that it is likely that the crew has just not travelled far enough to discover more gate planets with the current region of this respective galaxy.

Rush stopped once, and that does not have any bearing on the issue at hand. The lack of gates would remain true if the ship had never stopped.

Just a thought, though if you look at Destiny It is massive and it is just a follow up ship.
The Reason I said bigger was that the seeder ships are actually designed to run by themselves as far as we know so it would want to be of a more sturdy constrution and armed to the teeth to defend itself. plus it would have all the manufacturing facilities to make the gates. My guess is that the ship next week is just a information gathering ship but I Guess we will know for sure next week.

Joe spoiled the surprise.
