    Default Replicator prisoner reprogrammed?

    when the replicator dropped to the floor and start marching towards the SG team while being shot at by a hail of gun fire, it looks like it gave the team a glance, stopped short of attacking the team when it was at arms lenght, then turned away and headed towards the door.

    Was the replicator's pause caused as a recognition by it that the team is not the enemy? Or it's prerogative to attack the team over written when it saw the wraiths show up at the door?

    If it was the first, maybe other than Rodney's reactivation of the base code to destroy the Wraith, maybe EW also had an influence on the replicators, reprogamming it not to attack the humans?

    i personally think it was just the wraith programming taking over when they entered the room. If they haddn't the asuran would have killed them.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.

    It looked to me like he just walked in an L which means that he walked down from his cage and turned left so he could walk out the door rather than walking directly towards it. In which case he may never have had any attention of bothering with them. But, anyway he couldn't see the Wraith as they were down the hallway to the left of the door so unless he can detect them non-visually he wouldn't have known that they were there.

    He knew that he was in a Wraith complex though so maybe he just went off to seek the Wraith or maybe his plan was to get back to his people. Sheppard and co stopped firing on him just before he turned so maybe if they continued to fire he would've went after them where as the Wraith kept firing and were blocking his path so he took them down. Anyway that's enough maybes for one post so I'll end it by saying that I don't have a clue, but I'm looking forward to them expanding on it.

    Hmm, interesting... Could it be a subtle hint that Weir has done something so that the Replicators don't attack humans? Or am I looking too much into it lol...

    Afterall, we know Rodney activated the protocol to kill the Wraith, but there is NOTHING to say they still don't wish to kill humans. Or perhapse the 'Kill All Wraith!' protocol just takes priority over the 'Kill All Humans!' one?

    Probably looked at the team, tagged them as a lesser threat and went after the Wraith.

    The lanteans did install a 'do not harm your lantean master' program that was turn off by the replicators after Rodney screwed with the base code, giving the replicators access to their base code, so it maybe possible that when EW got linked up to the replicator network, she patched up the program together and added a 'do not harm humans' order?

    I'd probably have to go with that as being the case. It definitely seems more likely.

    I think it was moreso the fact that the Wraith were higher priority. that and the Asuran was probably captured while attacking the Wraith (probably beamed up in a dart). The Asuran probably just wanted to return to asuras. Apparently he and Mdckay had a chat, according to JoeM.

    The Asurans free will, have been neutralise once with the code activation. Now they will only work to achive that task, command. They will not attack someone else untill either the Wraith are destroy or the cod deactivated. They may became hostile to a third party, if they evaluate that party like an obstacle in their task to eliminate the Wraith. Tipical machine thinking.

    I think that in 'Reunion' was ovious that. The replicator prisoner evaluate the human team like not being Wraith and their weapons not a threat and moved on. After he killed the 2 Wraith drones he continue with the task and not turning back to the humans who were watching. So the priority kill theory don't stand.

    i think he was just walking to the door turned left and exited, and the programming kicked in once he saw the wraith.

    My interpretation was that as long as there are Wraith nearby, the Asurans are bound by their programming to kill them first before doing anything else.

    I think, that Rodney same time, when he activated wraith kill-code, put something in, that saves humans from them.

    I fully agree: the humans were not a target at that time and that's why
    the Asuran went for the target with higher priority. I would add that the Asuran's attitude had something Borg-ish in it.

    I like that theory. It would be a great ark to wier.

    To me the Asuran never looked like he was going to harm the team, but that sheppard over reacted and shot at it, plus why would he shoot at it unless he wants to waste some ammo.

    Replicator did a Borg like walk to the exit?

    When the kill Wraith code was activated, it could mean that the Replicators will not harm any other creatures until the Wraith are destroyed.

    Replicators will definitely wipe out the Wraith, unless something drastic happens.

    Replicators have many things going for them:

    1) Far faster building capability
    2) Much harder to kill than the Ancients
    3) Same technology, if not slightly above the Ancients

    Yes, in hand-to-hand combat a Replicator would easily kill many Wraiths.
    But the war has just begun , so I guess that it will last many episodes until
    we'll know the winner.

    The Wraiths have their own advantages as well :
    - they come in huge numbers
    - they live in ships spread around the whole galaxy - so it would take a long time to
    hunt all of them
    - they already have the beaming technology installed on their darts : so it's a very
    plausible solution to capture the Asurans one by one with the beams and never re-materialize them. The big problem to this approach are the powerful shields
    that would need to be de-activated before cleaning a city of nasty replicators.
