Besides, according to Mallozzi, the Lucian Alliance was able to develop shields for their ships that can stand up to the Asgard weapons now employed by Earth ships. An intergalactic hyperdrive can't be that much harder.
Take Mallozzi's ideas with a huge grain of salt. If it weren't for the fact that the Lucian Alliance is a group of thugs without the necessary infrastructure to properly conduct the kind of R&D needed (not to mention a lack of people with the scientific knowledge required), I could buy that idea. But based on the evidence from the shows, the only way the Lucian Alliance outsmarts the Ori is having Baal pulling the strings.

It's way more plausible that one of the three Ha'tak managed to score a lucky hit on the Hammond and damaged the shield generators or something.
