All signs point to the Wraith thinking that the city had been obliterated by their energy beams and/or the depth of their descent underwater. MCKAY: Ten thousand years ago, when the Ancients were under siege from the Wraith, they sank the city in order to dissipate the Wraith's energy blasts in the water. This way, the shield was able to hold far longer ...

They aren't supposed to use much if any Naquada in their construction. It's generally assumed the style of gate from Destiny is oldest but some sources, namely the comic continuation of SG:U indicates Destiny was launched well after the era we see Atlantis leave Earth on screen. The comic is supposed to be a canon continuity but the publisher made tons of ...

Strictly speaking it's the Pharaoh Akhenaten Starpilotsix gave a great answer but it might be worth noting that Ra's mask from the movie is the literal spitting image of the actual Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten. This actually ties into the movie pretty well in that the real life figure was said to be somewhat androgenous just like the actor cast as Ra though ...

TLDR SPOILERS AHEAD TO STARGATE ATLANTIS! No, they were not. They were healing/reviving her; we just don't know how. We don't know if the Nox know how to ascend. The Alterans had to research how to do it. So, the Nox were not trying to ascend in that situation. They were actually trying to help Lya. She was hurt after being attacked by the Goauld and they ...

There is a problem of misunderstanding or confusion with the original question which the other answers do not seem to address directly. That is that the concepts of constellation glyphs/symbols (of which there are 39 which are distributed around the rotating inner ring of the Stargate, 38 of those represent constellations, and the last one is for the point ...

They did in the final episode of sg1 but then they travel back in time and only Tealc remembers. In that it becomes clear that Daniel does have feelings for Vala but is scared she's not only messing around when she flirts with him They don't have a relationship in the movies but it is implied there are feelings there

There are a number of "new" canon stories set after the end of SGU on television. First there's the Back to Destiny comic series but also a Back to Pegasus series focused mainly on SGA that also involve the SGC. (I'll warn you that these SGA issues have numerous errors ranging from spelling to continuity and the characters don't look much like themselves ...

If you watch the "groundhog day" episode (“Window of Opportunity”) at the end Daniel asks Jack if he ever took advantage of the situation. Jack responds by staring at Carter and smiling, I doubt it was just for that kiss they showed us. They went through probably hundreds of loops and showed clips from a handful. They definitely hooked up in one of the loops ...

What exactly is the Ancients' policy regarding intervention? I'll tackle this part first: It's complicated but more than anything it's "don't get caught by the mortals." Keep in mind that every single ascended being we see (outside the diner) in the Stargate universe is either an Ori or someone who claims they had or were actively breaking the rules in ...

They never actually say what the minimum distance is, but in the SG-1 episode “Maternal Instinct” (3x20), they establish that each of the (habitable) planets in the Lok’na Core has its own stargate, with only one - Kheb - being left off the Abydos cartouche (presumably to keep Jaffa from knowing about it). CARTER We basically have two reference maps for ...
