Very sorry if this has been discussed and please feel free to direct me to the right thread for it but I have some questions about how we are thinking the seeders and destiny works.
Since whenever they stop there tendsto be 2 or 3 planets in range, I was assuming that every stop was in a new galaxy and that the seeders must only be placing 2 or 3 gates in each galaxy before they moved on. My basis for this reasoning is that Stargates can normally relatively easily reach any other gate in the same galaxy, so when they stop they should be able to dial any gate in the same galaxy as them, thefrore that should be what "in range" means. However the way they talk about what is "in range" and the general feel you get from watchign is that "in range" is actually reffereign to some range a little more "relatively" near by. But since this doesn't really fit with the established rules of SG I've been assuming that it is reffering to the Galaxy as "in range".
However, in the recent episdoe "Faith" the planet they ran in to (I assume was inside a galaxy) as Eli askes why the seeders didn't put a gate on the planet.
This question suggests that the seeders were actually putting down gates on every planet that they find, if this is true then why do they only ever have a couple of destinations when destiny stops?
Any thoughts on this.
