    Baal's Time Machine On Praxia

    Just watched Continuum after forgetting what it was all about and just realised the machine on Praxia built by Baal to locate solar flares is still there, fully functioning. So do we know what's happened to it? did Stargate Command send a team to seize control of it?
    It basically gives Earth the ability to time travel whenever they want to, surely they've took control of it? or have they destroyed it?

    They don't know about it at all.

      How would they know it exists?
      Unmade Plans (WIP: 11/20):
      Sam's life takes a turn in an unexpected direction when she's faced with an unplanned pregnancy. The decision to keep the baby and raise it on her own will alter her life forever. Relationships are put to the test, especially the one between her and Jack. She doesn't know what to expect from him and he surprises her at every turn.

      My S/J fics can be found on FFnet and AO3. I also tweet and tumble about the ship and my writing/stories.

        I thought they had that ancient vehicle that O'Neill used to transport them back to ancient Eygpt? So, why would they need Baal's machine?

          haha! good point, my brain skipped that little point. Dang.
          Well it's still out there, I'm surprised with so many teams gating about on a daily basis they don't discover it.

            Maybe they do know about it... Old Mitchell might have communicated the info to the SGC.

              Slight flaw, it can only go hundreds or thousands of years back and forth. It's method of time travel is not precise. Between Mitchell, Carter, and Jackson... no Ancient gene to fly it.

                What about the gene therapy used in SGA?

                  Wouldn't be available to them while they were trapped in the alternate timeline.

                    Why would anybody be trapped in an alternate timeline? the timeline is now back to normal. Nobody said anything about the team should have used Janus' time machine in the film, they were just pointing out they don't need to go find the Praxia device (in the normal timeline) because they can time travel without it.

                      Ah, I thought we were talking about an alternate means of restoring history in the movie. Whoops.

                        You all forget that the entire facility went kaboom when Teal'c said dying to the newly arrived Goa'uld Quetesh that: Quetesh, I die free and dropped a bomb. So there is nothing to find.
                        Tha end.

                          That was in the altered timeline, when Mitchell went back and put things right again the facility was in the newly put right timeline and thus never blown up by Teal'c.
                          Am I the only one who understand time travel! :-p

                            You're assuming that Baal created the time machine before he went to Earth to sink the gate. It's possible that Baal goes back in time, then sinks the gate, followed by building the machine. Since he died during the attempt to sink the gate, the machine may never have been built.

                            This would be the most logical conclusion because the timeline was restored. Baal would have needed to do a lot in order to built that machine so he'd have had to interact with himself.

                              He had to have built the machine to predict solar flares in the first place and BEFORE travelling back in time to sink the gate because otherwise he would never have been able to time travel in the first place and travelled so precisely to the exact date and time without the machine to detect flares.
                              are you really telling me that Praxia machine wasn't built before he travelled to sink the gate? because if so how the heck did he manage to travel in the first place without the machine to predict the flares? to think he built the machine after originally travelling to sink the gate is clutching at straws in order to avoid being wrong with your initial statement. He didn't just accidentally and through luck gate through time, it was planned and clearly he had a machine to do it all.

                              Just to clear up any confusion anyone may have about the timeline, the Baal killed by Mitchel in the past doesn't mean the future Baal of the recorrected timeline will cease to exist. The future Baal of the re-corrected timeline doesn't know that mitchell will be in the past waiting for him and so will once again build the machine, step through and get shot in the head.
                              The praxia machine will always have been built by future Baal before any time travelling takes place and so even now with past Baal dead and the timeline re-corrected, the praxia machine is built and intact.
