    Hem interesting point about that, but since it was a secret base, I don't think he would conduct experiments on a planet with a gate on or above it.

    well its not like hes got his own personal hyperspace ready ship that we know of lol or a hyper-jumper sitting around well he did have the time jumper but thats different... sort of lol... but we wont go there so yeah i tihnk it would of, gate 2 planet a turn around quickly dial secret base address b lol...

    speeking of dialing, back in the quest in sg1 ( i know its a while back) but did anyone else other than me expect a screen similar to merlins decice to pop out of the dhd when adria started 2 mess with it, some interface screen with dianostics, because they dont really have one of those lol

    You're making an assumption. The planet didn't have a gate we could see. It seems logical to me that Janus was quite capable of putting a gate on a planet without anyone in Atlantis knowing about. He could've then gated to any old world before going to one of his secret labs so there would be no record of the address. Alternately, he could have removed the address of an isolated, unused planet from Atlantis's database.

    And, if the gate had gone BOOM in his experiment, he probably would've too.

    well if u have a secret base u keep it away from the gate encase someone goes sight seeing u don't want they just randomly appearing, id expect him 2 have a jumper (the time one probably lol) where he flew from the gate to his base... that and how would he know what the side effect is, its not like no one used a gate for 3 days afterall lol

    I think personally that it is just as likely that this might be a hoax to keep the interest for the episode at peak. Somthing that SciFi made to tease the viewer, or throw us off and keep us geussing what it is with the Asgard so we will be even more surprised when the REAL soldier shows his face.

    Anyways. Zalenka says that a Stargate explosion equals 12 nukes... did anyone except for me notice the snow on the soldiers planet? Nuclear- or E.L.E-winter possibly?

    10k year winter i doubt it maybe its in the pole to help hide the base... as for it being fake, if anyone in less than 24 hours of seeing that new enemy could make a fake copy of that suit in full detail like that and have an Asgard pop out of it, id hire them right now as a graphics artist without a second thought lol

    Hem, now that you mention it, I guess the whole gate on the planet thing was very likely afterall. The base would have a sheild to protect it from such an explosion.

    Just remember: It is not unseen that show creator, make alternate endings / recodings to keep leaks from happening or being beliveable... Take Simpsons for one where 3 seperate endings were made for the "Who shot burns" episodes. Just to keep it from leaking.

    Notice that there are no sound effects What so ever, just Danile talking, on the clip there is linked to. It might just be a pre-production clip, but my thought might be just as reasonable... but we will see in a few hours.
