Sheppard: Have you tried turning it on?
McKay: That's what we're working on. The problem is that there's no direct link between it and the main power control systems, which among other things, led us to theorize it's an ancillary power supply for the weapons systems.
McKay: See that? See? See the way he light up at the mention of that? It's like Dr. Vogel at the mention of pastries.
Sheppard: They found out a way to soup up their space guns.
Zelenka: Yes, but it's much more than that.
McKay: The sticking point is that there's no tie between the power generator and the primary capacitor.
Zelenka: Yeah, meaning that they would have to channel the power directly into the weapon.
McKay: Which I'm sure that means nothing to you.
Sheppard: It means they could fire multiple bursts without having to store up more power for the next firing sequence.
McKay: Yes… very good.
Sheppard: Which leads me back to 'cool!'
