Friday Five: Weapons We Want

Friday, May 8

We're kicking off a brand new weekly column with a look at five of our favorite Stargate weapons. Post yours, too!

A brief excerpt:

This summer GateWorld is bringing you some brand new weekly features! Every Monday we'll give you a close-up look at a DVD bonus featurette from the 15-season history of Stargate. Every Wednesday it's the newest episode of the GateWorld Podcast. And on Fridays — starting today — it's a countdown of some of our favorite episodes, tech, moments and characters from the shows!


Subduction Leads to Orogeny's Favorite Five Weapons:

1) Intar

First introduced in Stargate SG1's 'Rules of Engagement,' the Intar are a Goa'uld weapon used for training, as they are only capable of varying levels of stunning the opponent.

2) TER - Transphase Eradication Rod

First introduced in Stargate SG-1's 'Show and Tell,' this weapon was used to primarily make invisible alien creatures from another dimension visible in ours. Later, it was modified to compensate for phase-shifting and cloaking technology.

3) UAV - Unmanned Airborne Vehicle

The UAV was first introduced in Stargate SG-1's 'Enigma' as an airborne MALP. Later, it was modified to carry missiles as well.

2) Time Dilation Device

First introduced in Stargate SG-1's 'Unnatural Selection,' this weapon was designed to create a bubble in space within which time could be either be slowed or accelerated.

1) Sarcophagus

First introduced in the Stargate feature film, and first seen in Stargate SG-1's 'Hathor,' the sarcophagus is capable of curing diseases, healing injuries, reviving the dead, and extending life by thousands of years.
