    It would be interesting to see a follow up what could happen if the ice is going to melt on Antarctica? Will the virus be released to infect everyone on Earth?

    I was just thinking on this fan fiction idea, because what if it is also a "time bomb" of an alien intervention? So the aliens have flooded the Ancient outpost to block the stargate. Then they knew that if Earth is going to reach a critical technological level then the global warming will melt the ice and they can be eliminated as a long-term masterplan / punishment of this alien race. I know it is sounds a really dark twist.

    It would also be good to know why the Ancients have build their knowledge deposit. Was it meant for random ATA gene carriers? Or were they waiting for somebody to return from a journey (like Merlin and the knights of the Roundtable)? Or was it meant for the Nox/Asgard/Furling or any other advanced race or advanced human?

    Anyway this episode is still one of the best. I wish they could have released as an upgraded, individual DVD movie.

    Considering what could actually, in reality, be released from those ice cores... I don't think I want to know.

    Good thing then that the spoiler rule no longer applies.

    Something about being off the air for more than a decade...

    It's kinda like saying, "Don't tell me what happens to the Titanic. I don't want to be spoiled." ...

    While I happen to be one of those people for whom there is no such thing as a spoiler (you can tell me the entire plot, and even quote the dialog, and it will not lessen--and may even increase--my enjoyment), I do understand people for whom the anticipation is just as important as the actual event.

    That said, if you are so spoiler averse that you think 10 years is too soon to reveal plot details, I think you need to get a life.

    Shyamalan films are basically ruined when you know the plot -- so it really depends.

    I have a problem with something new getting spoiled. If it's been off air for a decade... well... that's just not in the same league any more.

    And by the way, the Titanic sinks at the end.

    Don't worry, I know more about that ship than the average person... Did you know there was a Joseph Dawson on board? He was a worker down below. He didn't survive. His grave marker is on the Halifax cemetery in Canada.

    Until the wreck was located in 1985, the stories that she broke in two were rarely believed. Everyone thought Titanic went under in one piece. She didn't. The debris field is 2 square miles -- most of the debris is situated near the stern.

    Anywho... you were saying...

    They may be ruined for you, but that doesn't mean they'd be ruined for me. It's not up to you to decide for me.

    That's really the basic rule about spoilers in general.

    I've always been baffled by people who complain about spoilers when they're in a discussion board for a specific episode. Why on earth would you be here if you don't want to know what happened in the episode?

    It is my fault as I have started to talk about future events regarding the Ancient chair and the outpost. Sorry. I will edit my post on my pc as the tablet version of the forum motor wants to delete the post all the time.

    BUT... that doesn't mean you should spread them around like candy either.

    I literally have no issues with anyone loving spoilers. I would spoil the hell out of everything you loved watching, but I generally am a second/third/fourth/fifth audience level so basically I'm the one getting spoiled by the first level audience, except when it comes to big Marvel films cause they air in Europe first.

    FH, I think we're in agreement, but talking at cross purposes.

    I agree that whether something is a spoiler is a personal decision, and it's not my place to make that decision for anyone else, no more than it's their place to make it for me.

    However, there also has to be a reasonable time limit on spoilers. Someone coming to a TV show 10 years after it went off the air doesn't get to tell us that our discussion contains spoilers, just because they've suddenly become interested in the show. As hammerbutt noted, if you don't want to know, don't read the episode threads.

    Definitely in agreement.

    We always considered the "spoilers" on my SG forum as a moderator that fans should not talk about future lore events because what if a new viewer will read this episode thread. We know as hardcore fans when the lore was extended here or there, so I am sorry it was my fault to talk about the future role of the outpost. And somehow I have even managed to delete my post via my tablet. Oops. I know 10-15 years have passed, but i believe it is a fair expectations to not ruin the fun of future SG fans. I am sorry again, gaters.
