    Zat Why no Zats or Staff Weapons in Atlantis?

    Whenever SG-1 goes on missions, they always take zats with them, and they have proven very useful, especially if you only want to incapacitate them. Does anyone know if the Atlantis team will get any zats when they head off, or will they find some sort of similar weapon when they get there (something used by the Wraith or maybe something the Ancients left in Atlantis)?

    No episode images show the Atlantis team using zats, and there's no mention of them yet on SciFi's Atlantis site's tech section. They may have left zats out of Atlantis. For the most part, Atlantis won't deal with the Goa'uld, so in order to all new viewers to get into the show without having to know the history of SG-1 (namely, what zats are), they chose to exclude zats from the show.

    Well, if that's the case, then hopefully the Atlantis team will discover something similar in the Pegasus galaxy!

    They're bringing good 'ol human-designed tasers with them. These could be interesting to watch on the screen.

    The Wraith blaster, will stun instead of kill. The Wraith want the victim to have life force in them so they can consume that energy oh their prey.

    It is by no means a sidearm, but I can see the Atlantis team using that in the future.

    Would be funny if they discovered a weakness of the Wraith were people who ate junk food all day... ha ha ha... Super Size Me...

    They'll have to address this sooner or later, won't they? Do the Wraith care about a victim's health? I suppose they might snack on Doggett (dollar$ to donut$) but wouldn't give a hoot about Cigarette-Smoking Man anytime soon.

    What does it mean by the wraith sucking (?) people's "life force" out of them?
    Jackson: Hathor was the Egyptian goddess of fertility, inebriety, and music.
    O'Neill: Sex, drugs, and rock and roll?

    I think it just means that their energy is drained from their body. So if you drunk tons of coffee, your energy would probably be gone and you'd go to sleep

    Maybe when they return back to Earth they will take back with them the right equipment. It looks like they are only taking Earth-based stuff. They're leaving behind Sam's Kull Warrior gun (which would prove VERY effective against the Wraith, since it drains life engery), zats, staffs, and a whole lot of other good stuff.
    Dark Helmet: So, Lone Starr, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
    Dark Helmet: No, it's not what you think. It's much, much worse!

    Col. Sandurz: Prepare for light speed.
    Dark Helmet: No, no, light speed is too slow.
    Col. Sandurz: Light speed too slow?
    Dark Helmet: Yes, we'll have to go right to...Ludicrous speed!
    Col. Sandurz:Ludicrous speed! Sir, we've never gone that fast before. I don't think the ship can take it.
    Dark Helmet: What's the matter, Colonel Sandurz...CHICKEN?!

    But according to that logic, they wouldn't feature a puddle jumper in a SG-1 episode, but "It's Good To Be King" (I think that's the title, it's the one with Maybourne) features one.

    No, it makes sense..

    The SG1 fans are probably going to watch SG:A and know what a puddle jumper is.

    The _NEW_ SGA fans won't know what a zat is, because they didn't watch within the serpant's grasp.

    So they can just say its a gun. I'm pretty sure a gun would not turn people away. Plus it would make sense for them to bring every type of weapon. At some point Earth based weapons will run of of bullets and ZATS never do. Of course we probably figured that being the Lost City of Atlantis they would have some better weapons for us to use.
    It’s the show that doesn’t end, it goes on and on my friends, some people started watching not knowing what it was, but they will be watching forever just because it’s the show that doesn’t end…..

    I think it's pretty obvious what a zat is, a alien version of a gun!
