    Wraith Ancient plague in the Milky Way Galaxy

    Sorry this has been repeated so many times folks.

    I was just wondering who unleashed that devastating plague on the Ancients millions of years ago.

    Joe Mallozzi stated awhile back that it wasnt the Ori, Goauld or Hot Zone virus creators. It could be a totally new enemy. I think they should explore this in Stargate SG-1's season 10. I think they can use Lovecraft mythology for these plague creators. Since this is the only mythology/legends/tales that the writers hasnot explorered yet besides Australian Aborigine mythology.

    It could have been Ancient science gone wrong.

    When was this said? Just curious because first time i have heard of it and i was always under the impression that the Ori created the plague...

    It could be that the plague occured naturally. Viruses mutate and its possible that a virus simply became resistant to the Ancients healing abilities and medical tech. by the time they had a cure it had mutated into multiple strains.

    I agree, There's so many viruses in the galaxy any mutlitude of them could have caused the ancients downfall. Just think how many viruses are on this world and then think of how many planets in the galaxy, hypochondriachs nightmare.

    There are plenty of mythologies they haven't explored yet. I don't recall ever hearing of any Mayan Goa'uld. Or Chinese deities (Yu doesn't count as Yu was an actual person). Or Same lore (Northern Scandinavia). Or...

    Besides, Lovecraft isn't even actual lore. It's literature. I'd say they should throw in some random Simpsons and Invader Zim/Irken lore. "OMFG! Mr. Burns is a System Lord!"

    Yeah, Lovecraft can hardly be considered as a possible basis for Stargate episodes. Might aswell have them run into Optimus Prime!!

    In the beginning of The Fourth Horseman
    Spoiler:
    Dr. Lam is talking to Landry about the symptoms of the Prior Plague. She says they are nearly if not IDENTICAL to the Ancient Plague contracted by the team from the Ancient women in Frozen. Thus, it is more than reasonable to deduce that the Orii sent the plague with the Alterrans several million years ago.

    Doesn't matter. Joe Malozzi, one of the writers on the show, has stated that teh Ori were NOT the ones who infected the Ancients with the plague.

    Lam vs. Mallozi. Mallozi wins!

    If you can find the quote or direct us to the location it would help since the plague the Ori unleashed and the one affecting the Ancient in Antartica were almost identical as has been mentioned in that they affected the nervous system forcing the body to shut down leading to eventual death.

    No, i don't think the Orii unleashed the plauge. They ascended after the ancients so it would have affected them to.

    Uhm the plague would have affected the Ori as well but thats the point with biological weapons, those powers who deploy them take that risk. If the Ori made the plague then I believe they unleashed it before the Alterans left the home galaxy. When the Ancients reached the Milky Way the plague spread. Now you can say that thats a long time and if it was unleashed so early how come the Ancients didnt die a long time ago. Well a possible solution was their advanced biology. The Ancient in Antartica had the disease but she didnt die because her body was fighting it. But not curing it. So its possible the Ancient Altera suffered from the plague for so long but could never cure themselves. Speculation at this point.

    What about that goa'uld mentioned in Evoloution, the one who found the piece of Ancient tech the sarcophagus is based on? He was either Mayan or Aztec, I'm pretty sure. Then there are the Giiiant Aaaliens of Nick's--you know, the ones with the crystal skull? They spoke Mayan, I'm pretty sure.

    BTW, it's spelled "Sami" not "Same." At least, I've never seen it spelled "same" before.

    Mayan deity while the giant aliens were Aztec (technically Toltec though), I think Hathor was also locked up in a Mayan pyramid.
