If the chair can transfer the consciousness like it did this episode then what happened to franklin's body ? shouldn't his body be there on the chair (nothing happened to chloe's body) while his consciousness was transferred to the destiny's computer ?

Maybe he instructed the computer to vaporize it, or a robot carted it off to some cryogenic storage bay. In any case, Franklin used the unmodified chair. Rush altered the chair's function for download only.

the process might have a start middle end and rush stopped it per young's orders in the start middle range.

Its been a while but didnt the temperature in the room get incredibly low when Franklin was in the chair? I seem to remember Riley making a comment about that or something, and when they opened the door the room was all frosty and fog everywhere...

That'd seem to suggest his body did get frozen and spirited away somewhere, which would make sense if that was actually a function the chair was designed to do.

That would make sense. A person could be linked to the computer and their body taken away to be cryogenically preserved. Any extended use of Destiny's upload capabilities would result in the body being unable to take care of basic needs or if something bad happened, death would take a few days due to lack of water and food.

Perhaps his body was converted into energy, a stargate does it why wouldnt a chair linked to your brain be able to.

Put into stasis somewhere on the ship? Converted into protien and used in one of Becker's meals? Rendered down and used as fertiliser for the Thunderdome garden? Take your pick.

they showed some tubes that looked like classic hibernation/cryogenic pods during the episodes where the LA invaded the ship, you know the one where eli and chloe were running around unexplored areas of the ship

Given that stasis pods appear sometime at the end of season 2, maybe Franklin's body was put in storage there. Or, he could have simply been ejected into space, vaporized, whatever you can think of... ;)

When Franklin sat in the chair fog like thing came down in the room, it even happened in twin destiny

Are we supposed to believe that Rush figured out how to over cone it

I think there is still much to be learned about how exactly the chair works and I fear we won't get to know all the answers in season 2. But maybe Perry and Ginn will be able to give some insight. Maybe Franklin will be able to come back. I hope so.

I am thinking the body was destroyed..

The fog also came down when band aid Rush used the chair in Twin Destinies. Frankin and rush also used the chair without disapearing so it doesn't always do that.

It must depend on the circumstances or something. Band-aid Rush had our Rush do something before he sat in the chair, perhaps it was activating whatever it did to Franklin?

I think that Franklin's body was converted into some form of energy, similar to ascension, but in a limited form. From what we saw, the same thing (the body disappearing) likely happen to the other Rush on-board the other Destiny in "Twin Destinies."

However, Chloe's body did not disappear because the host consciousness, Chloe, was still inside the body; they only downloaded Mandy and Ginn into the computer, leaving Chloe inside her own body.

So perhaps the 'freeze cloud of doom' only comes down when it fully downloads your consiousness, to get rid of the body.

It's probably just to get rid of the body.

I still wonders what happen to Franklin's body?

Franklin only had one consciousness though. Cloe had three.

It's possible the chair detected that her body still contained a consciousness in it and, as such, didn't break it down.

That it might have.

I can't think of a realistic explanation except the following: The chair (being an ancient chair) gave Franklin the knowledge to ascend.... That's all I can think of.

I don't know... this show can be confusing.
