    Default The door to nowhere

    Why would the Ancients in all their infinite wisdom build a door at the top of the tower that leads absolutely nowhere? I must admit it was a cool place for that final fight though

    Was it a door? I for one didn't really see how they suddenly got outside because I was so caught up in the epicness.

    Suicide Point, it's where all the Lateans who failed at Ascending chose to end their lives. During their descent, some of them actually managed to Ascend, what with impending death looming.

    You clearly see the door opening when Michael passes through.

    But that would beg the question: Why would you put circuits up there? And why the lack of railings?

    Maybe it's a connector for one of the bridges that we saw in "Progeny":



    But...

    Didn't the "The Prodigal" clearly show that the gateroom was just below the top bridge in that picture, and about even with the lower bridge? If so, how could there be a bridge behind the gate in "Progeny" in one of the opening scenes when there isn't a bridge in the external shot?

    Maybe this was the inspiration of the story the prior told us in "The Fourth Horseman." I can't remember it exactly, but it mentions someone who fell but on the way down grew wings.

    I believe it was one of the tubes we saw in the episode where a Wraith hive-ship was growing out of keller. She probably didn't move in further because of the stun field

    Yeah, you're right. I guess it was a messup and they just attached the bridges in convenient parts of the virtual model.

    Vala,

    The problem with that theory is Atlantis doesn't have those bridges. It is possible though that they have them there for when they dock on a planet.

    Maybe it's for parachuting? Ancients are know for their extreme sports....
    Or maybe the Ancients were so far sighted that they knew it would be needed for an epic battle one day.

    Atlantis isn't surrounded by a megalopolis, either.

    Repairs? access to systems?

    other towers have doors to get the roof area.

    Lol why does ANY building have a balcony? For going outside and doing BALCONY things. Like others have said, its a ship that connects to other buildings with bridges too.

    Clearly. That one balcony where Kate fell from, for one. And I think John had a picnic with She-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named-in-Rodney's-Presence on a balcony.

    There are tons of balconies in Atlantis! Elizabeth has her own balcony. Even when she is not there, it is still her balcony.
