he's another picture showing wraith armor it's clearly very thick...
we can see the armor clearly in this picture, so yes the armor is very thick in places in other places it's not so thick byt over the main body where the majority or Ori hits will be the armor is thick...
firstly the deadalus isn't 1/1000th of it's size and secondly it's irrelevent...Did you neglect that part where the Daedalus is less than 1/1000th its total size?
despite what you say shrod we've never seen this happen in stargate and the fact that we've seen many different sizes of wraith bolts is proof enough of varying firepower...The hive blasts have a matter component, proven by the fact that it has an explosion on shields. The only type of matter that maintains its shape in a vacume is solid matter. Just out of curiousity, what would proof of this look like, other than hive balsts looking large after being fired from considerable distance?
the distance they were fired from is no larger than any other time we've seen them and the fact remains we've never seen any energy bolt change size after being fired...
it will cause damage but it will take several shots to get there...And what happens when the Ori beam makes it's way inside?
or maybe they hit the same weak stop? your argue is ridiculas even you must see it, like i said if the weak spots are so comon we'd see explosions from rail guns hitting them...Ever hear of a sample size? If just plants 5-10 blocks of C4 with an extremely short range of less than 10 feet, and hits 3 weak points, then that tells me that weak points must be VERY common to have such good odds. Presumably, the opposing hive ships would have better knowledge of where the weak points are than John did.
we've never seen the same sized bolt hit both a hive and the deadalus so your argue meant is moot, the bolts that hit the deadalus have been consistantly smaller than the ones hitting hive ships...Wraith blasts consistently show much larger explosions when they hit Wraith armor than when they hit anything else (unshielded Daedalus, shielded Daedalus, etc.), even in the same frame of the same episode. Further, we have one AMRAM hitting the hive hull in "Allies," which results in a VERY large explosion.
the amram impact in no mans land caused a secondary explosion after it hit the hyperdrive...
the fact of matter is that internal explosions cause far more damage than external ones, if you stuck a piece of C4 to the side of a hive ship it would do nothing...No, but Daniel and Vala have, plus they had Carter for guidance.
1)the absense of visable armor is proof enough and the fact it is a known weak stop...1) You have no proof that the specific areas were unarmored.
2) Just how strong are the railguns to begin with? For instance, the SGA crew had no problem dealing with the recoil from the railguns meant for the Prometheus, despite Newton's third law of every action having an equal and opposite reaction.
2)they fire slugs at mach 5 so they'd have pretty good armor piercing abilities
the fact remains the hive thought they were under attack from a rival hive and reacted accordingly they weren't threatened by the single dart but by the hive ship on it's side...Not if I was behind an armored wall and knew they couldn't get to me.
when the Z.P.M is that low on power anything you do drains years off the shield life, the Z.P.M in siege was pretty fullHe said that the shield could have lasted another hundred years if they hadn't arrived and turned on all the lights. What's your point?
i haven't brought up misbegotten once and you haven't debunked anything so far...If you want to focus on the other explosions, then focus on the other explosions. But if you keep bringing up "Misbegotten," then I'll keep on debunking it.
he would be saying they have external weaknesses if the whole ship was just as weak use your head...Nope. The rest of the ship could easily be just as weak, the only difference being that the external weakness also has a major system that you can harm in the process. Hive ships are incredibly large, and have a tendency to boune back. However, some systems won't be as easy to bounce back from than others. In fact, here's Zelenka's exact statement:
ZELENKA: Well, the ships are massive, (he shoves himself across the floor on his chair to another computer) but because of their mainly organic design, they have a number of external weaknesses.
there's so much wrong with that. Firstly if rail guns could simply pass through hive ships the ships would be beaten very quickly seeing as a single lucky hit could destroy them, do you even believe half the stuff you right?Note the adjective. The biggest thing that the Hive ship going for it is its size, not it's toughness. Shooting it up with a railgun would be like jamming a needle through an actual beehive. Sure it can probably pass through, but it won't do you much good, since the size of the needle is insignificant compared to the size of the hive, it's unlikely that you'll hit anything important, and the attack is easily avoided in general. Or, think of it like a zombie movie, where it takes the characters forever to realize that they should shoot the zombies in the head. The head is the weak point, even though the bullets will still pass through just about anywhere.
thats completely irrelevent seeing as i was talking about wraith blasts in a vacuum...Here's a shot of a lightning strike from an amateur photographer:
And here's a shot of a lightning strike from space:
Wow, common sense must tell you that the lightning bolt in the second picture must be a billion times bigger than the lightning bolt from the first picture, right? It's not like it could simply be the fact that in one picture, you're observing the strike directly, where as in the second you're seeing the resulting light as it gets absorbed by atmospheric particulate. No, obviously, they must be completley different types of lightning altogether.
basically you've seen sateda and despite the huge amounts of evidence showing much higher yields you've decided sateda is completely unfallable and is more credible than all the evidence we've put forward against it...
