Ok, you tell me. Did the Stargate writers come up with the idea for the Replicators because they were busy fighting a loosing battle with Stink Bugs?
My girlfriend at work – Elaine H. came up with the idea that Replicators are actually Stink Bugs, only metal. Think about it. Stink Bugs are not native to the US. The came from China. So they are invaders from a land far, far away. Replicators – ditto. Once you get one Stink Bug in your house, you’d better start looking for more. They don’t just come in 1′s. Replicators – ditto. The Stink Bugs eat everything and move on. Replicators – ditto. And you just can’t seem to kill Stink Bugs. Hey and guess what – ditto on the Replicators. They even look a like!
