    It got sucked into a big, black plot hole. That's what happened.

    Why the weird obsession with plotholes? This is an open question, not a plot contradiction. Not a plot hole. Just an unresolved issue.

    How would they bring it back? Earth ships don't have a means with which to tow ships. Opening a window that big might not even be possible for our ships.

    How would you even fix the hyperdrive? An intergalactic drive for a ship that big....How would you build one compatible with their systems? How would you get it to the ship and install it?

    They would need a dedicated freighter, large staff, and a drydock. Followed by months to rip open the hull, install the new drive, and close it up again. Then time to fully integrate and test the new drive.

    Where do they find the money, people, and resources in a program already stretched by the 302, 304, Stargate, and Atlantis programs?

    Oh, and remember, it's a top secret program. So hiring and purchasing are lengthy and difficult tasks.

    Be patient, the Tria might just show up in the nick of time. Maybe to render aid after a season ending cliffhanger...

    I think we've got repair crews swarming it in the void. Or maybe the IOA stole it.

    The Daedalus/Apollo just could drop in, check the life support, drop a couple dozen people with few weeks of supplies on the Tria, and check out what's the problem with the hyperdrive. And fly it to Midway(back then), maybe it takes a few weeks/months, but there they have a STARGATE. No freighter needed. While they fly the ship there on sublight they can check into the logs, run diagnostics, and check out the hyperdrive, what has been blown, what needs repair/replacement. They get to Midway, they ship the supplies through the gate, and there they have the capacity to run around the ship for a few weeks, and do what they need to do.

    But a dropped sentence about the faith of the ship would be more than enough. But i would like to see earth having the ship and permanently stationed it on atlantis.

    It's probably not in the right place for it to have had any interaction with midway but I'm sure the Ancients either scuppered her or we've got a small research team on board and the IOA are holding endless debates about what to do with it.

    Its just assumed that they took their zpm, abandoned their ship and rode back to Atlantis on the daedalous. What kind of good story would it make? A 3 parter on how to rebuild an engine? A last minute rescue flying in to save the day? I hope they save the tria for a good story.

    Well it's official, we will not be hearing anything about the Tria in season 5.

    For the past 9 days I've been asking every day at Mallozzi's blog whether we'll hear anything about the ship this season, and this morning the answer came in,

    "We Will Not." Scroll down to the mailbag and it's about the fifth question.

    If ignorance is bliss why aren't there more happy people?

    well, didnt they bring back its ZPM, and possibly, drones, and let the damaged ship out there? and besides. wouldnt it be hard to repair a ship in the middle of a void. or, to build a 304 hyperdrive when you need it for your 304's?

    The Tria is in the void between the Milky Way and Peagus sitting there awaiting something to happen to it. The Ancients also bought back the ZPM that they used to power it. The proof of this is that McKay drained the one the Expedition had been using during 'McKay and Mrs Miller', and when the Asurans showed up and Helia (The Tria Commander) sent up a Jumper to tell them to 'Go Away', the jumper was destroyed and she said 'Power the Shield' or something along those lines.

    since the writers are most likely aware of this plot hole- a episdoe or mabey a season finalie will involve it

    There must be a good reason for the writers not revisiting it - the ship wouldn't be that hard to find, given they know it's rough last position, it's last speed, and the Apollo at least has super-powerful sensors that would likely find it from quite a distance away.

    Either TPTB think it's giving the characters too much power to once again have an Ancient warship at their disposal and so will retcon it's existence by saying it blew up, lost all radiation shielding, is a total deathtrap, isn't worth the effort etc, or they have something planned for it for a later season.

    I'd reckon the first one. The SGA team never seem to have much luck holding onto these ships, and a 304 seems to be superior anyway (despite lack of drones).
    And now it's time for one last bow, like all your other selves. Eleven's hour is over now... the clock is striking Twelve's.

    Well, the 304 won't be superior, if they install asgard beams on the Tria too

    Gah! Asgard Death Beams on everything!!! Unending has a lot to answer for...

    But yeah, an Ancient ship repaired with 304 tech, and Atlantis have their own ship. Or at least, use the Daedalus / Apollo's hyperdrive to tow it back to Atlantis where McKay might be able to do something with it, even if it gets used as little more than an orbital weapons platform (hide it from the Wraith long range sensors behind, or in, one of the new Atlantis homeworld's five moons).

    I still think it'd make a cool, if only temporary, replacement for Midway. I just can't see TPTB giving us closure regarding the Tria unless they can wrap a truly awesome story around it.

    I'll freely admit that the expedition has an horrific record with ships, but there is an easy solution, just say that the IOA and Stargate Command want it brought to the Milky Way so that it can be studied while building new ships. There's like a billion reasons they could use to explain it not appearing in the show, but I just want them to actually mention the ship. It hasn't been mentioned once since we first saw it. In Echoes Rodney mentioned the three lovely ZPMs, that would have been a prime opportunity to mention the Tria, but we got nothing.

    I know I sound whiny, but I just want something about the Tria. It could be so good, and at the same time its absence could be so easily explained, and yet nothing happens.

    If ignorance is bliss why aren't there more happy people?

    I wouldn't say you sound whiny at all - I think a lot of people will agree when I say Stargate has a bad record as far as leaving plot threads dangling goes, and quite frankly the Tria is one of the worst.

    An Ancient warship, apparently functional, clearly abandoned, waiting for the only people who know its location - us - to do something with it, is just forgotten and never referred to again?

    You know, I would even be happy if Rodney mentioned it blew up, shook itself apart from the rapid deceleration ("They're not just slowing down, they're slamming on the brakes at something like 50Gs" or something like that IIRC), Helia(?) scuttled it rather than risk the Wraith get their hands on it...anything.

    Obviously I'd prefer a more productive Tria reference (outfitted as Midway 2.0, towed to secret location by the Apollo for study, in Wraith hands and requires liberation etc), but I would accept something that tied off one of the bigger dangling plot threads.

    Plus, the time dilation factor would be a pain, given the Ancients onboard experienced much less time than the millennia they'd been travelling.

    And, also, if the Ancients couldn't fix it, would Rodney have had much luck?

    From the point of view of a writer - it would have been way too easy. An easily acquired Ancient warship, probably with ZPM and drones, would have made things too easy.
    but we know from experience that TPTB retarded the ancient warships to make them "weaker" so it would not have been a good investment....they would have ended with crashing it into another ship or something because something "couldnt" be fix and all you needed to do to make rodney fix something was hold a lemon at him
