I thought of this theory taking what we know into account, i do understand that moving around will not yield any change in the CMB that we know of, i was more making a point for the fact that because we know this and were a young species, then what the hell is Destiny travelling in a straight (ish) line for along with the Seed ships, the point of the mission is exploration but we dont know what for, theres no point saying Destiny cant be looking for the source of the CMB structure because it wont physically exist because that leaves a gaping hole as to the point of Destiny's entire mission.
As i also said, we saw the Seed ship in 'Awakening' had a large number of gates already made and stored, we also know there arent many gates per galaxy, so as to why they would need so many Seed ships when the Seed ships have a number buffer of constructed gates which speeds up deployment, suggests to me reaching a certain point in space as fast as possible with as little deviation and time loss.
I like the Dovetail theory, it would explain why theirs no remains of the crew, but i disagree on the fact of the chair being an Ascension device, i find it more likely their bodies get absorbed and stored somewhere, perhaps cryogenically stored, and their conciousness gets uploaded into Destiny's computers, would explain the ships sentience like ability of the dreams of Young and possibly TJ and Rush's conversations to Gloria and Franklin. Dont forget weve seen in Altantis on the Aurora that crew members in cold storage had their minds linked to a virtual environment to keep them active despite their physical bodies extreme age. I think the chair could be the precursor to that technology.
As for the few Stargates in a single line, i did think of it being a path home for the original Destiny crew but theirs power requirements and other things that dont add up for example the MK 1 gates cant even dial some gates in the same galaxy let alone to neighbouring galaxies.
Humans are not as clever as we all think, we still murder and rape. We still burn things to get power/heat. We still have famines, die from natural disasters, war. We are still a terribly primitive race. Our imagination is our only hope, getting bogged down in theories and taking what we know now to be true(because we think we are that clever) will just hinder our development.
Okay folks, the topic of this thread is Theory on Destiny, Seeder ships and the Gates they drop. Personal issues, insults and opinions on humanity are off topic and also against GW rules. If you are not interested in discussing the given topic I suggest you move on and find a topic that you do find interesting.
The Destiny mission isn't the first of its kind... the first ones were probably the ones to seed the MW. Also, in IDA, there was a stargate with the Asgard, clearly because the Ancients had a treaty with them.
The IDA Stargate was the milkyway model. Also the Milkyway mission most likely came AFTER Destiny as the Destiny gate is a prototype of the Milkyway gate.
Anyone notice how lean looking the seedership was? from the outside it was almost all framework and engines... inside it was packed to the gills with equipment. almost no room to move around.
There is theories for both sides of this argument coin, we do NOT have the whole picture, as i have said before we only have supposition, i dont like the fact people here are so willing to shout down other people theories when their own is based on no more fact than this one.
ITS A THEORY.
It needs no bashing, all it needs is coherent and cohesive discussion giving arguments for or against. IN the end, the show will tell us what is real in their eyes.
sorry I didn't mean to get the thread off track again. i only get to check the formus once a day.
Baaaccckkkk to seederships. weee!
I arent speaking to any one person, no need to apologise for nothing bud
We know Destiny is heading along a pretty straight course to wherever and whatever, i just surmised that the Seed ships were heading along this same straight(ish) course from Rush's statement, he might be wrong, he might have been given incorrect info from Destiny. I just surmised from what we knew at the time of writing.
well it makes sense. I mean why send destiny in one direction and seed ships in another. You gotta figure that all these ships being sent out into the vastness of space are certainly going to represent a substantial amount of effort/resources/money on the part of the ancients. their not just slinging ships around willy nilly without figuring on every one of them having some specific benefit for the success of the destiny mission.
Maybe only 1 is heading in the same direction, the other that rush mentioned are seeding their own directions.
Then there shouldn't be any more gates around, since that seed ship was seen in Awakening, and it hadn't been doing its job for a long time.
Wasn't there a mention early on that there were multiple seed ships ahead?
