    Default Guns Guns Guns!! [spoilers SGU S1]

    After reading through the 'Air Ep3' i relised, The Destiny appears to be armed.. heavily.

    If you look closely, it has guns, might explain why its been attacked but, why arent the weapons automated? http://forum.gateworld.net/showthrea...t=69930&page=5 Its an argument/discussion what it is so why didnt the weapons take it out since it looked sinister, thoughts about the weapons?

    It would be good if you could find a link to that trailer.

    Are you sure you're not thinking about Battle Star Galactica or even the Hammond's Railguns in Air or Icarus base when it's attacked in the premier?

    I thought this was about the teams lack of guns and ammunition.

    Anyway, I think they will give it some defects like lack of power or out of drones or the automated system are down and we can't figure out the firing mechanism at least for a few epis.
    Kyle XY inspired me to write Fan Fiction:

    Fanfics I've written:
    Stargate
    SG- 15: This story is set two years after Atlantis: Milky Way politics has gone down the drain: Jaffa factions are at each other necks, SG Fleet focused on Wraith threat, while a new threat is on the rise. A new team led by Lt. Col Anderson to deal with it.

    The title of the thread implies anything to do with guns and apparently the ship looks like it has guns.

    Possible spoilers from the 4th episode:
    Spoiler:
    Judging by the fact that Destiny is low on power and Rush is apparently going nuts telling people they're all gonna die in a number of days because the ship's powers reserves are running low the guns will probably have limited power.

    Sheppard Re: Guns Guns Guns!! [Possible spoilers]

    im betting that those weapons are automated but that they didint fire because the destiny is an exploration vessel and it is most likely programmed to not fire unless its being fired at, this way it wont be making enemies of potential friends to the ancients.

    and its also a possibility that its programmed to not fire weapons unless absolutely nessisary when the power is at a certain level and instead to conserve the power for other, more inportant things like the engines and life support and structural integrity fields. and since that thing, whatever it was, didint look very dangerous i think the destiny chose to not waste power.

    There's nothing to say they aren't/weren't automated.
    Being damaged heavily =/= not firing back. Ships are damaged all the time, and they still put up a fight.
    Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity!

    Cheers for letting me know, I did try looking for the access all areas thing on youtube but like you say the part with Destiny's cannons firing I couldn't find, I did however find this link to a couple of pics on Stargate Wiki:

    http://stargate.wikia.com/wiki/Destiny_pulse_weapon

    It's not much but at least there's something people can view now, they look pretty Goauld SGU Ha'Tak like too me, hopefully there's more punch to them than those though, as I'd guess there's a possible high chance of some very advanced and powerful races being out there far out in the Universe.

    To me the two pic don't look completely authentic not they aren't but until I see that in the show I won't place my full trust in it.

    I don't know what looked fake about it to you but as I was wondering around the forum I stumbled upon a link someone had posted to the Access All Areas thing on sky and on the youtube clip someone's actually put the time of the shot of Destiny firing it's weapons, here's the link:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ff2B5xcq0ro#movie_player

    If you click on GHOSTD102's link you can see it.
    Looks the same as the Pics someone's posted on stargate wiki.
    Pretty cool to actually see the ship firing.

    Cool I'm glad you liked it.
    I can't wait to actually see whatever Destiny is firing on.
    Hopefully those cannons are as powerful as they sound.

    actually after watching part 3 of the video ROTF posted a link to i heard rush say "activating the weapons system the way your proposing is completely reckless" so maybe they actually arent automated at all and you have to actually activate them.

    Don't think Destiny has drones--gunshots don't look like drones
