    Default What other Stargate civilizations could dial Destiny?

    Despite unlimited access to the Ancient database in Atlantis and the Asgard Legacy, the Tau'ri still have a long way to go to become the most advanced civilization in our corner of the galaxy.

    Even so, by luck and ingenuity, they not only deciphered the ninth chevron puzzle, but also devised a way to harvest enough power to establish a wormhole to a ship located billions of light-years away from Earth.

    Throughout SG-1 and SGA, we've come to know lots of civilizations, many of them far more advanced than Earth in all fields of science, including power generation and Stargate technology.

    Questions:

    1) Which of those civilizations could replicate Earth's feat in dialing Destiny?

    2) How would they do it?

    1) The Nox
    2) They'll do the same thing that all stargate civilizations do. They'll invent/find some magic Deus Ex Machina device. Or they'll just find a planet with the same properties as the Icarus planet. Using black hole could probably work too.

    The Tollan......and don't tell me they are gone, cause I choose to believe that some survived and there are some still out there rebuilding.

    The Aschen - they're still out there I'm sure. Though they didn't have a lot of gate addresses, they'll sooner or later figure out more about how the gates work.

    They'd have to:

    • Know the Destiny's Address
    • Know Earth's PoO
    • Be able to reprogram the Gate to recognise Earth's PoO as a Glyph
    • Have enough power to dial the 9th Chevron


    The Nox might be able to, but they don't seem a very adventuring race.
    The Lost Tribe Asgard don't seem to use the Gates, and Pegasus' Gates can't dial intergalacticly without a control Crystal.

    And I can't think of any other advanced enough races.

    I think the Asuran and the Asgard are a given. Both of those civilizations had access to Ancient knowledge, including Stargate tech, and could build as many ZPMs/Neutrino Ion Generators as necessary to dial Destiny.

    The Asuran, in particular, were described as having all the knowledge of their creators and seemed to emulate them in every aspect. Heck, they've even built an Atlantis replica... Who says they didn't build their own version of the Destiny?

    ...which is probably why TPTB killed them all

    By the time they do.. humans will be asgard level advanced.

    The Nox don't do anything.

    They are a useless race if you ask me.

    An interesting question and I think the answer would be really intriguing if you contemplate the possibility of someone dialing the Destiny gate not of one of the races/galaxies we know but...someone new from someplace new.

    I mean, it wasn't too hard to dial Destiny from the AirIII planet....who else could do it along the trip?
    If you're wondering how he eats & breathes, and other science facts...(la! la! la!)
    Then repeat to yourself its just a show, I should really just relax.

    I own "Future War"..I can put up with a lot

    Given that Destiny has been flying for millions of years it is possible that some other civilizations have already dialed destiny & then died out...

    It's possible that we may find out about it in the future...

    Its also possible that some advanced alien race on the side of the Destiny part of space also have mastered the Stargate technology and could divide a way to send our people back to earth.

    I actually think its one of their best best bet to get back to earth. The other one being taking control of the ship themselves (maybe with the help of milky way aliens through the stones) and do the same thing (finding power etc) on their own. They did it one time on Icarus after all.

    The Nox and their magical abilities could probably dial Destiny....

    The Asurans (unlimited ZPM's), the Tollan (with enough of their fancy hand-held generators), & maybe the Asgard before their mass suicide (with the right power supply).

    I was under the impression that the Aschen were a fairly weak race in the grander scheme of things and not just because they had very few addresses. More advanced than Earth initially and the vast majority of the other human civilisations in the galaxy yes, but certainly not a match for the goa'uld let alone the asgard or the advanced earth with asgard/ancient technology.

    I can imagine only people who knew whatever code it is to get to destiny's adress could get here.

    i'd say the human form replicators if they knew...but it was long before they existed.

    1: asgard
    2: replicators
    3: Asurans
    4: Wraith (whatever powers those hives, take a bunch of them, stick them together, and it must be possible. if it can move an 11km ship...)
    5: Nox
    6: Ancients
    7: Ori
    8: Furlings
    9: Earth
    10: Lanteans


    only a few could do it with just 1 powersource (unless BH's and Icari)

    the Wraith should be capable of it with some effort.
    all 4 great races should be capable of doing it with relative ease
    the lanteans and ori should do it without a really big sacrifice (1 ZPM probably gets a dial there, then depletes)

    the Asuran's entire powergrid can do it witout breaking a sweat.

    any race can do it with an Icarus

    6: Ancients Dead
    7: Ori Dead
    8: Furlings AWOL
    9: Earth Did it
    10: Lanteans Dead
    Just pointing it out. Sure they could've when they were around, but it doesn't seem like it atm.
