    Default Zats and Wraith? (question about the episode)

    I could be wrong, but during season 1 or two didn't someone mention that 1 shot from a zat won't affect a wraith?

    Was that an official response they just forgot about? Or was just an opinion because they didn't want Goa'uld weapons in Atlantis

    Supposedly one of the writers mentioned 1 shot wouldn't stun a wraith. Does anyone else remember something like that?

    I think it's been speculated that wraith might regen from a zat quickly and that's why they haven't used them in atlantis. But there's never been any hard statement saying so.

    I think at one point Mallozzi said on his blog that Zats wouldn't affect a Wraith, but obviously they changed their minds.

    Nothing the writers say in the blogs or in interviews in cannon until it is shown or stated on screen. That's why the replicators are replicators and not Asurans and that's why Zats effect Wraith.

    people pay attention too much to writers blogs that haven't been set in stone, we're lucky the writers even give us hints on a day to day basis on their blogs, don't take early writings seriously, cause they can decide to change.

    Zats must be double double effective on wraith, or teal'c was just saving those guys for later, because he only shot them once and moved on.
    Joseph Mallozzi -"In the meantime, I'm into season 5 of OZ (where the show takes an unfortunate hairpin turn into "the not so wonderful world of fantasy")"

    ^^^ Kinda sounds like seasons 9 and 10 of SG-1 to me. Thor, ya got Aspirin?

    AGateFan has officially Gone Fishin (with Jack, Sam, Daniel, Teal'c) and is hoping Atlantis does not take that same hairpin turn.

    I knew that the Wraith would be suceptible to zats, all other aliens seem to be even the Asgard who you'd think would be killed right away by them being so small-bodied and all.

    I loved seeing zats used on the Wraith. It would have been even better if a Wraith that had recently fed regenerated from being shot and Teal'c zats him three times and he disintegrates, with Teal'c giving a "Regenerate this" look.

    I'm surprised he only stunned them once and left them to wake up in a few minutes. Bad Jaffa Warrior! Bad!

    I used to wonder if the zats where an ancient weapon abandoned in Pegasus because they weren’t effective on Wraith. Maybe somebody else made them or they were upgraded to the ice cream cones.

    SG-1 seasons showed that sometimes it needed to take 2 zat blast to bring someone down like zar tarc or something (those people with a hidden gouald program to kill)

    My theory is that the Zat were designed to Stun anything they hit, but the victim, if shot many times in his lifetime, could get 'used' to it, and resist being compleatly knocked out.

    the Wraith stuners are just a means of subdueing prey, and yet designed to not do much to the wraith themselves.

    to the zat could do it, because they were designed just to do it, not retro designed for shooter safty.
