- Average Stargate Range
- Why Earth Has Two Gates
- Why Two Gates Cannot Be Active in Same Place At Same Time
We all know that gates within close proximity to one another are unable to dial one another (SG-1; Solitudes), and that only one may be active within a certain volume of space (since it gains priority over other gates)(SG-1; Watergate)(ATL; Enemy at the Gate).
So the question then begs itself:
Assuming that two stargates are of the same model (i.e. both are Milky Way, Pegasus, Destiny, etc.), and assuming typical usage (i.e. transport of matter and energy), what would be the minimum distance required for one to be able to dial, connect, and establish a wormhole with the other?
NOTE: This question considers typical usage only. As @Eureka had mentioned in the comments, when atypical usage is considered, the minimum distance is technically zero (since the same gate is connected to but at different times). (This begs another question, what happens if the gate is active during the time your connecting to it through a solar flare?)
