    I Knew It

    A little late, but the episode gave us something I've been suspecting for a while now. When Rodney and Radek are working on the Replicator block for the attack, Zelenka gets called away to what turns out to be the infirmary, to fix their molecular generators.

    One of the things I wanted them to address has been their supplies. When the expedition originally embarks, they bring a lot of stuff with them: food, clothes, equipment, weapons, ammo, etc. But things tend to get used up, especially in a line unit. And after the Genii tried to take the city, they left with a lot of the Atlantis medical supplies, but the expedition has more medical supplies not too long after that. Even if they held some in reserve in case the main stock gets depleted, and later had the Daedalus to make supply runs, that's still a lot of materiel being used up.

    This is not a rip on plot holes by any means, I'm just happy that TPTB took care of this. I mean, a race as advanced as the Ancients would have to have some kind of technology like that, just to support their civilization.

    Though it appears that the generators in the kitchen have trouble with the color blue, at least in jello.

    I'm pretty sure he said naquadah generator

      I think he said "Naquada generator", actually.

        directly from from the transcript

        ATLANTIS. Rodney is waiting near his lab and looks irritated as Radek hurries to join him.

        McKAY: You and I have two very different definitions of "this won't take too long."

        ZELENKA: I know. I'm really sorry. The naqahdah generator in Section seven is giving us all sorts of trouble, but it's fixed now. I'm all yours. What would you like to try now?

              Since when do we have molecule generators, like, at all and since when does "molecule" mean "anything you want"? While a lot of people would possibly find it "cool", it'd be funny if they introduced such important new tech in a throaway manner. And by "funny" I mean "stupid".

                Well the Asgard core on the Odyssey is able to rig the transporter technology to materialise anything you want (Unending).

                    That's not generating a molecule though, it's rearranging molecules.

                      No, it's turning energy into matter.

                        By rearranging the molecules, or the atoms or the particles or what-have-you.

                          No.

                            Yes. How else would you turn energy into matter? You rearrange the basic building blocks so that it's now a different substance.

                              Different substance? It wasn't a substance to begin with, it was energy.
