    Default Ori Supergate

    Could the Ori Supergate be rigged to dial Destiny?
    It was possible to make it dial a classic pegasus gate.

    And it would have an almost endless supply of power from the blackhole.

    The Ori supergate never dialled a Pegasus gate. They used nukes to jump the connection from a normal gate to the nearby supergate.

    We have no idea what would happen if something passed through the event horizon of the Supergate. Imagine putting an Ori Mothership through the supergate. Would you expect an Ori mothership of the same size to come out on the other end? No. We also don't know what the tidal effects of the black hole through the supergate would have on the receiving gate, on Destiny.

    Hm good point however if they only sent supplies it could have been useful.

    either something unimaginable would come out, or it would shrink down to scale...this is my theory, but imagine a Ori mothership going through the supergate that is connected to a normal size gate and it coming out miniature, with a crew and weapons to scale as well

    Obviously, after establishing a connection using the supergate, you have to send through all the pieces and have them self-assemble into another supergate. You're gonna want to have the Destiny on standby to charge it up with its weapons, but once the shield encompasses the entire planet, the planet can be collapsed into a black hole and sustain a supergate connection. (Note: This means no direct dialing to Destiny)

    Have the Ori not taught you anything?

    Also, morbofist, we are the ones who used nukes, not they.

    That's not what I was trying to imply. My point was that they (the SGC) dialled to a gate in close proximity to the Ori supergate, then used nukes to bounce the connection. The point is the Ori supergate was never dialled.

    I can't imagine that a supergate could establish a stable connection to a normal sized stargate. lordofseas and General Jumper One already mentioned the problems. How should this connection work?

    Tiny boxes of supplies the size of matchboxes would come through

    Would they? I highly doubt a wormhole connection between a supergate and a stargate would be possible, let alone stable. My guess would be that anything that enters the event horizon is destroyed. Otherwise, we would have a serious problem if something too big entered the wormhole.

    IMO the Supergate was a nice idea. We could seed Supergates in the Unoverse, maybe one Supergate per galaxie. This way we could transport ships (and their cargo) real fast.

    Go watch SG-1's Season 10 "Pegasus Project" they have a pegasus gate next to a black hole dial a milkyway gate next to the supergate and use nukes to successfully jump the wormhole to the supergate

    Even if its a jump it means that the wormhole can technically be created. Question is: What happens to objects that are too large?

    Orlin (one of the ascended Ancient) made a small stargate from a toaster parts to connect to the usual stargate on the other planet from Carter's basement. How is that even working?

    He also used industrial grade capacitors and titanium. That Stargate used power from the main powerline to dial Velona once. Even with all of Earth's power it would not be able to dial Destiny.

    I guess, with smaller Orlin's stargate dialing to a bigger stargate, size doesn't change when existing the other side. So, if a supergate dialing destiny's gate, a ship can be sent in, but what exiting on destiny's gate is the cylindrical part that the same size of the gate hole and the rest of that ship parts will be crushed at event horizon.

    Yet, the Ori supergate still need the Icarus planet size power consumption. The same I guess if destiny want to dialing home. Has they figure it out the 9 chevron address to dial home?

    I think they have since they have attempted to dial home several times. But afaik the Ori Supergate has unlimited power through the blackhole, that is also why it could be kept open indefinitely if the Ori wanted to.

    The Ancient from Milky Way only know making gate to utilize the artificial wormhole. So, there is no references for Earth people to learn handling blackhole to blackhole travel. There is doubt that a Blackhole is connected to each other.

    So, supergate and stargate will not connected since they are not compatible.
