Sooo the episode Epiphany... The ancients inhabiting the time dilation field working on ascension.... All of them ascended at the end (rather cheesy, face down their manifested fears kill the big monster instantly ascend) and THEN.... gave the stern warning that Mckay was not to try and harvest the ZPM powering the place so that others may try to ascended.
Here is my question... who else in the galaxy was going to come TRY?!?!?! These people were all descendants of an earlier group that knew of the place and entered with the INTENT of accession. Not to many groups of ancients left hanging around... OTHERWISE the damn place was a trap for anyone who didn't read ancient. AND its pretty much a waste of a perfectly good ZPM.
Am I off here?
