    Does/Will Dr. Keller have the ATA gene?

    do you think she will have the gene or will get it ??

    I hope not. Only 50% of the vaccinated people will have ATA gene.

      Probably not - simply because Beckett had the gene and they want to keep the characters different

        Will she develop a Scottish Accent?

              If she did have the ATA gene, I'd prefer it to be naturally. It's been a while since we've seen anyone around who had the gene naturally and not induced.

              I wouldn't mind if she were to have it, and I would think it cool if she was taking care of Carson's turtles.

                I think she will have it.

                It's not really a matter of having her like or dislike Carson, but needing someone to sit in the chair when Sheppard can't. McKay and Zelenka end up working on the technical side, Sheppard can be too busy, so having a recurring character with the gene (although artifically given so it would add a bit of difference from Carson) would at least cut down on having random background characters used for important scenes.

                But I would prefer her to be non natural with her ATA gene. 10,000 years have passed since the Ancients interbred with humans, so it's supposed to be rare and already we've had Sheppard and Beckett in SGA with the gene, plus there is Jack in SG1. So cutting down on the amount of naturals would make it seem more of a rarity.

                      Realistically, there really would be no need for her to have it!

                      Beckett could because it was to do with him having discovered the thing in the 1st place. However other than that there really isn't any need for a Doctor to have it. We've never seen any of the medical equipment require the ATA gene. So that only leaves stuff like the control chair, ships, shields etc.

                      You don't want her flying a PJ unless totally necessary, especially if they were to come under attack. You'd want someone with pilot training in such a situation.

                      Shields, don't have any lying around. Which if they did, they'd be used off-world by Shep or someone in his team.

                      That only leaves the control chair, either to fly the city or operate Drones. If it's Drones, then you'd want someone more military minded who can maximise the weapons to their full capacity.

                      In S1, they were cut off, so had limited personnel. However since Daedalus arrived, they were no longer stuck. Not to mention the fact that Everett was foced to bring through his own people with the gene etc to fly the PJ's. So I'd say they will have a good number of their expedition members that will have it.

                      While she's only in 8 eps for S4. So obviously not gonna be central to a lot of storylines throughout the season. Therefore I'd guess that the gene thing won't even come up with her, because they'll have plenty of others who already have it & are much more experienced in using it.

                          Back to thread subject: I think she will maybe have gene but the only reason Carson was main character were his goofy attempts at controlling the ancient chair. It will be tough to fill that void maybe McKay can connect a joystick to the chair so no one need to sit in it.

                              Agreed there really is no logical reason for her to have it. I hope she doesnt.
