    Well pretty much that's the general agreement from the other posts in this thread. You are not alone.

    We do understand it but i actually would have prefered that if they knew that was the case maybe use the movie as a proper ending

    yeh but the movie was never a 100% going to happen thing. They knew this. And after Unending and the outcry against it as not a 'proper' ending to SG1 i think they decided to try something different.

    Ok to be honest ill agree with you about the sg1 it was a complete flop and was a horible way to end the series 200 seemed a more fiting ending,i enjoyed the Atlantis end alot more also.As badly as Atlantis from sg1 i know it could have been worse and ill admit that came alot closer to an enjoyable so i hope they continue such change in the movie.

    completely agree, it could have been so much worse. I'm hoping that MGM will rake up enough money during this economic pitfall to make the movie!!! I miss Zelenka and Dex, damn Sci-fi to hells, all my fav shows get cancelled!

    Im a huge stargate Atlantis fan but even i have to admit that the finale was rushed and at times seemed like the camera was badly positioned,if i had to score it i would give it a sub par 5.On a side note cant wait to see extinction and it seems that it will not revolve around the wraith so what could it be about any ideas.

    It gets sader when you learn they may go back on the movie.

    Let's hope they don't. They should know that it would be successful.

    Given how much hatred there is for universe right now, an Atlantis movie might be well received right now. If anything they should make it top priority over a 3rd SG-1 film. I dunno how much longer they can keep the cast together.

    So i know this post is old and all but I've been re-watching SG1 and remembered something which bugged me in the finale.


    Taonas's outpost was protected by a force field (controlled by the chair platform as far as we can tell) and since it is essentially identical to the one on earth, it is rather safe to assume that the Antartica outpost also had a shield generator.... the Antartica outpost is actually also defined as a "dome" by jackson so it is sae to assume it also had a shield over it when it froze over. Why wasn't it used? is it because they left it behind and only took the chair leaving all the drones, the shield gen and the cryo-chamber behind? because that would be slightly dumb... Not only should it be studied but leaving it for the Russian's to grab may not be a good plan either.


    Instead of simply activating the shield (powered by an almost fully charged ZPM), they just let the base blow up. and if it wasn't for that shield we are supposed to believe that the base in Area 51 has no defensive capabilities even though it holds tons of artifacts? no AA guns? no shields? really?

    Finally I wanted to add that I agree with most of you guys, there is no way the hive could have been that powerful. Wraith tech just like Human or Asgard should get a significant boost from accessing a ZPM's power. But COME ON! 3 Asgard modified BC-304 followed by the full force of the Atlantis city ship powered by 3 ZPM's and barely a scratch on the hull... even if you made good points that the Atlantis ZPM's may not have been full and may have been seriously drained by the galactic jump, the ZPM on board the hive should have been equally drained! Growing the ship, travelling between galaxies in a record time and the power transferred to fire at the BC-304's... that ZPM should have been reaching it's maximum. Even with 3 ZPM's at 20%, Atlantis should have had the upper hand. It's basic math after all.. 3>1!
