Well, we got our first bit of solid...er...sort of info on the Season 4 finale from JM:


Despite the distractions, we (hopefully) have our final episode slotted. No title yet but, like most season finales, this one will be big - but very, very different

http://josephmallozzi.blogspot.com/2007/08/august-8-2007.html

EDIT: Oh yeah, and here's a bit from the SGA Spoiler Community on LiveJournal:


Episode 4x20 : Finale
Writer: Paul Mullie
Director:

Asked if the last two episodes of the Season would be a two-parter or whether they planned to do a cliff-hanger at the end of season4, JM replied, “It will not be a two-parter.”

Joe Mallozzi mentioned, “We also took the time to discuss … Paul’s very cool idea for the season (?) finale, a little episode we’re calling…“Finale“.”

So far all the Atlantis finales have left me at the edge of my seat. Especially the first season finale The Seige Part II. Even the mid season finales are really good especially The Return Part I. I'm really looking forward to this season and hopefully they'll come up with an original and more importantly a brilliant idea.

I'm betting it will be something like 'Threads' or 'Lost City'. Not in episode ways, more like in the sense that they'll finish off one of the main enemies. If not totally like the Replicators, then like the Goa'uld. Their power & threat was gone, but a few were still lingering for future episodes.

They could even do that earlier on, then save the finale for something stand-alone that doesn't involve any of the enemies in any way. Just the team or the expedition doing somerthing amongst themselves. Then finishing the season in a 'happy' way like 'Moebius'. Of which there isn't any impending peril or immediate danger that they've done in all the other finales.

Maybe different that it won´t be some big action episode. Atlantis wouldn´t have to be under attack at all, but it might be some personal tragedy or anything else with characters. When they say that S4 will be character driven.
Just thinking here...

Different? Maybe it'll be a clip show finale like out of mind. Which thinking about that title make me think that mayb they called it that cause they were out of their minds to have clip show as the finale. lozl. But seriously, I just hope its big and the cliff hanger packs a lot of punch. Like I was just watching ST:TNG "The Best of Both Worlds" the other day. It was the first time I had seen the epsiode and even though I knew it was the ep where Picard became a borg at the end of part one when they showed him talking to Riker from the Cube and then Riker telling Worf to fire on the cube. Cut to black, To Be Continued. My jaw just dropped. That's how you do a cliff hanger! Not only are all of the characters in mortal perril, but they have one character basically giving the order to kill another. But now I am rambling... as long as its not a clip show I'm sure it'll be good.

Little bit of news:


PG 15 writes: “1. You said that a podcast is a good idea (or something like that). I agree. Now that you guys have significantly less work to do, any chance of enlightening us with your thoughts on each episode after they air like Ron Moore did for BSG in the form of podcasts? 2. So...are you guys planning for a Season 5 at the moment?”

Answers: 1. That depends on the individual writers but I think it’s unlikely. We’re still writing the last few episodes of season four and no less busy on the production end. 2. We are not thinking past season four which will end on a cliffhanger. We have a general idea of where we want this major arc to go and hopefully will have a chance to develop it with a fifth season pick-up.

Answer: It will be a cliffhanger season-ender and let’s just say that regardless of how things work out, I can’t see us leaving our fans hanging indefinitely.

I have no doubt if something stops them from continuing to a fifth season they will give us closure. Obviously they are banking on a fifth season lets just hope scifi doesnt muck it up. As for the season finale it needs to be action packed or atleast very dramatic. If Atlantis isn't in danger mabey they can go with a character in a life or death situation.

Can the finale be the future episode? :D Ok, it would be similar to 2010 or Unending, but try to imagine a scene, where Rodney and Katie have childrens, Ronon drink tea with a Wraith Queen at a local bar, Sheppard is a General, Atlantis flew back to Earth. There are trade routed between the Pegasus and Milky Way through the gate system or Midway station. Replicators ascended to the Ancients, they made alliance and they guard the Ori borders on the other higher levels. But the peaceful life became nightmare when a new threat arrives ...

Janus will arrive in a puddler jumper to change this future at Atlantis, because a new race destroyed all life in four galaxy. Their name is the Aschen. :)

At first I was going to say no then I read it again and actually like that idea. I know they would be using an old SG-1 story but I like this for a number of reasons. First I love Janus and would love to see another story involving him and second I like the Aschen story and they did intend to do a third story so it could work. However it'd be very confusing to those who neveer saw SG-1.

Ok, it was only a short fan fiction. But why would they make a future Atlantis episode? It can be a dream (Absolute powe) or bad possible future (2010, Undending) or other reality (black team, changed tehcnological evolution) or a computer simulation. These are all scifi cliches. :o JM mentioned that they would like to make something very different, so the finale can be this future episode. But what they want to tell us with this story? What will be the cliff-hanger? I am so excited. :cool:

-Time travel
-Nothing bad happens at all (that would make it very different)
-Something to do with Carson

I don't thing Atlantis should return to Earth, unless it is at the very end of the series, or...

1. It returns to Earth, but we realise we have created a situation in Pegasus that requires us to remain there to protect the many races, and we go back, or...

2. It returns to Earth (which wouldn't be too bad as SG-1 is finished) as the Asurans and Wraith have managed to travel to the Milky Way in large numbers.

They are the 3 ways I see that being able to work.

Exactly, and normally when there are parts there is usually a decrease in mistakes for continuity and what is established canon. You have to read back to the other episodes to make sure the following ones make sense and don't confuse the audience. So it seems to me that they probably spent a great deal of time reading and writing through the scripts to make sure continuity is intact. Thank the [insert deities] because when bringing people back from the dead you play a dangerous game with continuity.

I'm pretty sure he said fairly definitely a while back that the possible third ep didn't work out and it would only be two.

Plus, we don't know that the finale was the possible third ep he was going to be in.... Kindred could have been intended to air earlier in the season....?

Edit: Checked the info and the last news I can find on the number of eps Carson will be in is from May 10:


It now looks like Carson will feature in just two episodes in Season 4 as "the planned third episode was temporarily shelved".

Ah, here we go:


After all lunch, we finally started work on the first part of the late season two-parter, what Carl has tentatively titled “Rise of the Googlions”. We also took the time to discuss the physics of Martin’s upcoming eppy and Paul’s very cool idea for the season (?) finale, a little episode we’re calling…“Finale“. Amidst all the hard work, we found time to enjoy the big block of chocolate sent to me by the mysterious “Jim”. At 500 grams of decadent 70% cocoa, it’s not only delicious but the perfect murder weapon. I could beat someone to death with it, then conveniently eat the evidence and no one would be any the wiser.

I know - my point was that the title "The Last Man" is unlikely to refer to Carson, as someone had suggested, as he is not likely to be in this ep. We know that the plot of the finale is related to Kindred... JM has confirmed that...

I was thinking that it had something to do with Carson. Perhaps he's the "last man"?

pie eater general
September 5th, 2007, 08:58 PM
Yup, I was thinking of the Dahl BFG too...

Quite frankly, big guns come and big guns go, but big friendly giants will be around forever!

Funnily enough, someone on another thread elsewhere said something about Stargate SG1 still being Stargate SG1 even if Mr Staypuft the marshmallow man joined the team, which got me thinking... picture the scene... the supergate opens... everyone is quiet expecting a vast fleet of Ori ships to emerge... but it's ok, it's just Sgt Staypuft returning from his covert mission to P3X-774.

Ahem... anyway... back on topic...

I agree that 'The Last Man' sounds very very intriguing as an episode title... it does suggest an 'everybody's dead, dave' factor, doesn't it? Like that '60s movie 'The Omega Man'.

Personally I would rather see something a little more inventive than that although... what if this were a time-travel episode, only one where one of the characters, the 'last man' of the title, is somehow thrown forward in time, to a possible future where something unspeakably nasty has happened to, well, everyone... and maybe it will end with said character having to return back to his own timeline in order to warn the past about the future... or something...

The fact that it follows on from, and is apparently linked to, Kindred I and II suggests that Michael may be involved...

Meh, I dunno... maybe it is a little too early to speculate too much about the details of ep.20, particularly as none of us have yet seen episodes 1-19.

But yeah, the more I hear about this season, the better it sounds.

Answers: ...3) I wouldn’t call it a 3-parter, However, they are definitely connected. 4) No.

So Carson's still in only 2 episodes. Oh well.

Or the virus kills all the other men, but not Rodney, which makes him popular with the ladies for the first time in his life!

Or everyone evacuates back to Earth, but Ronon stays behind to guard Atlantis, because Ronon can not be killed. Or the Wraith kill everyone on Atlantis, but not Ronon, because Ronon can not be killed. Or the writers find creative ways to kill off every other character, but they can't find a plausible way to kill Ronon, becaus Ronon can not be killed!

The fact that it is connected to Carson's return is excellent.

The fact that Woolsey is in it is great. I find that character interesting, esp. in how his character has changed since his first appearance in "Heroes."

They won't remake the "Allies", so maybe the Wraith-Atlantis alliance is still exist at the end of the season, but why should they betray them again? They could make in the mid-season three parter for good reason. If the writers kill the Wraith (like Asgard v2.0), than what will stay for season 5? So I hope that it will happen in an other future or reality, but I am a bit sad. :S

So, you'd rather see the Wraith starve to death? I'm sorry, but the Wraith sacrificing themselves for the rest of the universe is is a much better option for the Wraith then to let them starve to death.

I've got a question about season finales in general, but The Last Man in particular..
Do they ever film two versions with different endings? I understand this is supposed to be a cliffhanger. If Atlantis isn't renewed, I'll be pretty unhappy with that.

I know SG-1 suffered through that a few times but had often had two-part eps to release as movies just in case. I haven't heard of SGA doing the same thing. I know people feel pretty good about Atlantis being renewed for another year, but what if it isn't? Not good to end on a cliff-hanger.:(

A thought just popped into my head. I wonder if this episode has anything to do with Mary Shelley's novel "The Last Man"? It's about a man in the late 21st century where a deadly plague is wiping out the Human race. He finds out that he is the only one immune to it and has to go through life watching his entire race die out. It's a long-shot but it'd certainly be interesting if this episode has any connection to it.

I hope that is not true I would hate to think of McKay as the last one left... too sad. *sniff* :( Although I was thinking his outfit *g* is trying to look futuristic... well I think it is anyway. :S If Sheppard thought he was the last one left... how would that work? Hmm, it is scifi and if Stargate was more adventurous willing to take its viewers to unusual places, well I can think of a few other scenario's but I doubt as a finale (maybe a real finale :cool:) that tptb would do anything but stock standard "been there, done that... on SG-1" episode. *shrugs*

Since it's just been announced it's impossible to fathom a guess as to it's origins.

The name would suggest an Earth ship. However they named an Aurora class ship 'Orion'. So it could be the captured Wraith cruiser from 'Submersion' that's risen from the depths again. It could be the Tria/Trea that they've restored. It could even be a cptured Asuran ship, or one taken from the the travelers.

I've not seen or heard much about Daedalus in S4, but Apollo is mentioned in one of the later eps. So it's still around. If Phoenix is another 304 or new class of ship. Then I don't expect them to keep all 3. It would be cool, but I can't see it happening. If one did have to go, then I personally would much prefer Apollo to go boom & keep Daedalus still around.

October 4th, 2007, 04:47 PM
Hmmm....if this ep takes place in real time (and not in the future or an AU like I think it might) then I'd wager that either the Apollo or Deddy will be lost before then. TPTB like to blow up ships before getting new ones. ;)

But if it's not "real" then I'd imagine that the Apollo and Deddy are safe.

Oddy and Deddy didn't blow up before the Korry came out. Nor did they when the Apollo came out. The only time they did that was with Prommie and Oddy and that was just to keep costs down by not having to rearange the bridge as much. It makes sense now with Asgard tech espesially that our ships will be much more formidable and thus allow us to build our fleet. And even without Asgard tech, losing only two ships in four years (both to the Ori, mind you) is not bad.

well they shouldnt keep destroying ships, otherwise not much of an earth will ever form.. they would just be still left 2-3 ships evrytime.


well i think its got to do with the future, since mollozzi wouldnt of said it in the first and the title suggest something to do with the future, 'the last man' so maybe something really terrible happens enough for 'the last man' to go back in time to warn someone.

I don't know if anyone has noticed this but look at this picture, to the left of the guy behind him is some kind of asgard console. Now the seat he's in appears to be the one from the bridge, so this could be the new ship that has an asgard console on the bridge.

Joe F. was there and as usual was skating around on his longboard, Amanda was there, as was Jason (who is a lot taller in real life than I thought he would be). Lots of positive vibes in regards to a season 5.

Cool! I'm so jealous of you Herb!:D Hope you get asked back for season 5!

Do you think we will be impressed with The Phoenix? (That isn't really giving spoilers away is it?)

Probably the new ship thats decked out with all the asgard stuff they got in Unending. Considering the name of it is the Phoenix (ie rising from the ashes. Asgard died out, and this would be their legacy rising again).

I could go for that. I'd love to see the ship they make with all the Asgard knowledge.

So I guess it's pretty much confirmed that the Pheonix is a new Earth ship...

It's a new kind of ship... Look at the schematics at the back of the last Phoenix pic.

Indeed, there seems to be a bulge at the top-back.

Interesting...

Looks like an altered Daedelus-class to me. I wonder what that Asgard cosole is for.

Obvously, the Asgard console will be used to KICK SOME ASS!!!

Ltcolshepjumper
October 7th, 2007, 04:16 PM
Yeah. I think the Asgard console is their to replace the former object which occupied that space.
It's really no different than the Asgard panel which is on Daedalus. They just moved it to the bridge.
Most likely though, it will control the asgard weapons.

Looks like it has an Asgard terminal on the bridge!

If you look at the back pic on the display it looks like a diagram of the ship. Which if it is, then it looks like it could possibly be a new class. Obviously not too radical because for cost reasons they'd want the interior to be close to the other 304's like Apollo & Daedalus etc. However the exterior does look slightly different.

Btw...pic is posted on today's JM blog entry!

I am the funny looking guy (Major Forest) with the U.S.S. FEENICKS sticker on. SOOO COOL! I am on Joe Mallozzi's blog. Seriously, from a fam perspective, this is the best thing since I moved down to Vancouver 4 months ago.

Awesomesauce. It's bound to be our first Asgard enhanced 304. The display on the back does look a little different however.

The best comparison we have so far:

I don't think it will be a new class of ship, especially because Joeseph Mallozzi said that we won't be seeing any new kind of ships. I do hope it's some kind of future ship because I really don't like that Asgard console and the schematic screen behind everything, also, without the star map, the bridge doesn't look as cool.

Old McKay and a new ship, hopefully it's a time travel thing, but we don't know for sure yet.

However, it would fit the 1 ship per year timeline for construction if it's another new ship, but the console on the bridge isn't very attractive looking.

Vala,

Well, maybe the star map is now holographic, and integrated into the Asgard console?

what's with the sand?

Not sure I follow you!

The sand ain't gonna be inside the ships. Therefore with some tricky & complex deductions ;) I have came up with the fact that perhaps it's to do with a planet they visit that has sand on it's surface. Could be a long shot, perhaps it's about Asuras & how they build sandcastles for a passtime when not busy replicating themselves but I think it's safe to say it's a sandly planet which they visit. Just like we saw lots of sand in 'The Defiant One'.

The ep is over 40mins long, not all of it will be on situated Atlantis or Phoenix. Leaving time to do some scenes off-world on a 'sandy' planet! It'll probably end up being a Wraith planet or perhaps the Wraith home planet.

Vala,

He said that a few months ago when they hadn't even written the finale. So it's entirely possible that things have changed. It stands to reason that it has most the same interior as a regular 304 because then they'll needed to have built an entirely new ship bridge. Which considering S5 may oir may not happen, then I doubt they'd have risked spending large sums of money on changing everything around. So to save money, they most likely just used the existing set & modified it a little bit. That however doesn't necessarily means it's a 304 because they could really change the exterior via CGI. The Asgard tech on the bridge would actually make a lot more sense than human stuff simply because it's so more advanced. Why bother with having a map display, when you can have stuff that does it digitally, holograms etc.

McKay is old, so we all assume that it somehow involved time-travel because it's the most likely outcome.However there actually could be other outcomes such as McKay being fed upon in the ep. Even they do a themed episode that peers or shows us into the future. In which they are all old & McKay is perhaps the last one standing from the original expedition. It shows how they finally defeated the Wraith or Asurans etc after all that time.

Only bad thing about Phoenix is normally another ship has to go. Daedalus is only mentioned in one ep so far. After 'BAMSR', there is nothing regarding it again, while Apollo is mentioned. So hope Big D doesn't get chopped because it's the very first ever 304, had n Asgard permanently stationed aboard & has the coolest Earth ship captain we've seen yet!
