Vala tells Daniel that to activate the ark he must enter seven symbols. Daniel reveals that the keyword is 'origin' which in English has only 6 letters, however in the dialect of ancient shared by the Alterens and the Ori the word for 'origin', which also means 'truth', could easily be 7 letters long. It had been revealed earlier that the ancient word for truth is 'verimas' similar to the Latin 'veritas' See more »

A great tie-off to the series
6 March 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I just watched Ark of Truth last night and I found it a great film (a term I use lightly - it really is more of an extended episode). The script was enjoyable, the actors were as always at their peak and it concluded all the story arcs that needed concluding.

Admittedly, the only factor in the film that annoyed me was the 'ark of truth' itself. It felt to me a little contrived that all of a sudden there was this 'ark of truth' that would solve all their problems. When they were fighting the goauld and they had to work out everything themselves, however with the ori all they're trying to do is find things that the ancients left behind.

Still, a great film and I'd recommended it to any fan! It really isn't for non-fans tho. This film wasn't made to get new people into the stargate 'verse, but to finish off the story for those people who are already fans. There is too much assumes knowledge for non-fans to enjoy it.
