Thread: Ronon's gun

  1. #1

    Default Ronon's gun

    The pistol that Ronon uses to stun sheppard and teyla in the episode Runner does not appear to be anything that his people could have made. Is it an Ancient weapon or was it created by the race that created the virus in Hot Zone? ( i think that because of the red color theme). Or was it created by yet another advanced alien race? any ideas?

    Wait, why not his people?????

    They seemed pretty advanced from their cities and they had enough soldiers to make their military look threatening.

    I'm sure that it is his own technology... though... he would have been stripped of his weapons after the cull and I doubt he could have found another of his race's gun while on the run.

    His peoples guns looked like Genii weapons... projectile based weapons. The handgun he had was definitly energy based.

    The fact that his gun looked like a projectile weapon (we don't even know whether it was or not for sure) doesn't mean that his people were incapable of making energy weapons. His planet seemed more advanced than Earth to me, so it's possible he could've just taken an experimental energy sidearm or something. I think it's more likely that he scavenged it off some other planet while he was running, but that doesn't necessarily preclude the possibility that his people could've made it.

    As Ronon Dex was a weapons specialist and as he has been on the run from the Wraith for past 7 years, it makes perfect sense, he would have "acquired" more than one type of weapon, both projectile and energy based. I have no doubt he traded with many poeple on many worlds and may, in this way, have come into contact with the Genii.

    Also, as was already staed, his own homeworld, Atteria, looked very advanced technologically, so I'm sure he received training, not only in the use of weapons, but also their construction.

    Just an idea...

    From the fact that he's survived being hunted by the Wraith for 7 years and the way he kicked just about everyone's ass in this episode, I think it's safe to assume that he had a lot of training. It's nice that the Atlantis crew has its own bona fide badass now, so long as they keep it up. I'd hate to see Dex fall into the Worf trap. Worf started out as a badass, but after a while he was almost always the first one to rush in like a moron and get his ass kicked right off the bat.

    Anyway, that's an interesting theory on the gun, that maybe he scavenged parts and built it himself with whatever training and ingenuity he had. It'd add another dimension besides just being the obligatory hardcore fighter, if he was also a master weapons expert, capable of building his own stuff. And he did seem to figure out the P90s rather quickly, didn't he? I like that theory a lot, actually.

    From The Brotherhood.


    From Runner

    I think someone asked a question about his rifle gun used in the flashback on his home planet. Same gun. At first I thought they were shotguns, but he fires it like a mini gatling gun, fires one barrell, then the next then the 3rd.

    His Pistol:

    The part with the trigger etc, and the glowly thing, looks like a revolver, whilst the end looks more like some sort of micro SMG.

    Thanks for the pics, mack. Maybe the Atterians imported weapons from the Genii for mass distribution and developed their own specialized energy weapons?

    Did anyone notice the smaller Wraith pistol? The one that looked like a "Wraith Stunner Pistol"???? That was cool. (The Wraith chasing Ronan had one and later Ford takes the Wraith's).

    Also, Ronan used a projectile weapon in the siege against Atteria because they are much more effective against darts than small energy. In a one on one fight, lasers a so much better.

    The Wraith drones that corner McKay in "The Siege III" also had the smaller stunners. I don't understand why they don't just use the handheld stunners all the time instead of the massively oversized stunners introduced in "Rising," myself. Maybe the larger stunners deliver a more powerful charge or something. Though the larger ones are still ineffective against Ford and the smaller one was almost worthless against Dex, so it seems the Wraith's weapons all just suck in general.

    I think Ronons gun is a mix of Wraith tech and some from his home planet. I find Ronons planet looking more advance doesn't make sense. I am assuming the Wraith feeding ground is the entire Pegasus galaxy. They are supposed to cull the humans everyone 100 years. This allows the humans left from the last cull to reproduce back to sufficient numbers for the next feeding. So if that's true then every planet would never advance beyond 100 years after each cull. There society would have been so devastated who ever survives the cull will have to start all over again.

    It seems that Dex can go toe-to-toe with Ford. And if you look at one part while the wraith was beginning to feed on him, the wraith stopped. Is it possible he was also given a little bit of Wraith enzyme? Not as much as Ford, but enough to give him strength to fight Ford.

    Its possible but the wraith scowled so maybe he couldnt feed on Dex for some reason

    Well, not sure where the gun came from, but it apparently has more than one setting (remember, Ronon told Sheppard that he was lucky it was set on stun). Anyway, Ronon's stunner sure looks a hecukva lot more painful if you're hit. Both Shepaprd and Major Lorne looked like they were in a lot of pain before they finally stopped seizing up and passed out. Poor Teyla looked like a rabbit hit by a car.

    The Wraith guards look a bit silly with the hand-held stunners; the big guns just fit them better, and no matter, each one requires aiming and they're all single-shot, although maybe the big ones last longer. Gotta admit, alien weapons NEVER seem to run out of power while our heroes can run out of bullets (well, tough to do with a P90).

    Well, regardless, I loved his weapon handling! It was great...especially his fighting skills against Ford! I was like damn! Especially since Ford has that Wraith power leverage...they were pretty evenly matched. Any clues on how Ronan managed to stop the Wraith from feeding on him? It seems as though there are genes that make a person immune to Wraith feeding...biological enhancement or was it that he was just a little more evolved?
