Well? Come on, if that wasn't an 11/10, I don't know what is.

Hats off to every second Ming Na was onscreen.

Brody going on like a typical crabby old man. Obviously he never “hooked up” with anybody. The elevator music was a nice touch. And Volker PO’d at Rush for brushing him off at his request to be informed when he got back on the ship told Rush that they did fine without him.

Young coming all the way to the planet to be there for TJ. And the montage of TJ getting sick. (I've never been a shipper, but I love anything Young/TJ for some reason)

And for some reason I really liked that shot of Young on the bridge while Chloe's diary said something about him being reelected.

My favorite moments:


The elevator muzak
How Volker's death was handled, and how Park and Greer named their first child Dale in his honor
Corporal Barnes and Eli pairing off
TJ's illness and seeing how it gradually affected their family
The beef jerky :D
Volker declaring that they managed to do quite well without Rush's presence
The finale with Camille at the school--very moving

I originally had a list typed out but realized it was a bit long and had just about every scene in it. So instead of posting that, I'll just say that this episode is probably my favorite Stargate episode of all time.

Corporal Barnes and Eli pairing off.

I didn't care much for it, but I did like the comic way it came about.

Loved TJ/Young stuff, Brody's old man self, and that at least everyone got a moment to shine. It was good.

- The elevator music. So beautifully anticlimatic. :)
- Wray's school inauguration speech at the end (nice cinematography)
- The Destiny blowing up a hole in the compound from space
- Brody's kino message

There were really a lot of good moments but the one that really got me tearing me up (and still does due to the fact that it was a powerful scene and the score just being excellent) was at the end with the dedication ceremony with camile talking and then them showing Novus from beginning to the end where the ship leaves.

Imo Eli and Barnes was a quick fix but.........

I could list what i liked......but i'd have to paste the whole episode down basically.

Seriously, thats an 11111111111ty billion out of 10 with a Bruce Norris seal of Approval.

this episode was an emotional joyride. really.


laughing about the elevator music (epicness), "two thousand years across the universe" beef jerky, to awesome with the main cannon and crying with TJ.

the end of Epilogue was perhaps THE most moving moment since.... since.... since.... ah frak.

The Destiny

The elevator music.. man, that totally cracked me up! SGU has a great sense of humour!

and grumpy Brody, that was one of the most awesome things I've ever seen! "kids, tearing up my lawn!" hahah! Just too brilliant! I loved how they just cut off the recording midsentence xD

like most people have said:

1. the beef jerky (lol)
2. young and tj's monologue (that was really heart breaking to see how her illness effected their family.
3. the end with the eli wallace elmentary school
4. the elevator music, at first i wasn't sure if the characters were aware of it, but then my their looks they were.

last but not least

volker telling rush that they didn't need him.

I have to say, sentimental idiot that I am, that I got a big ol' lump in my throat when we see the spaceship take off from Novus at the end. They mended their fences, built spacefaring ships, and left. Good on them.

There's so many I can't list them all but:

The scene at the end with Old Wray giving the speech at the school and showing the city evolving over the years with the ship leaving at the end-brought tears to my eyes.

LOL'd at the Muzak in the elevator with everyone giving each other sideways looks except Yazou, who seemed to think it was perfectly normal.....

Park and Greer naming their first child after Dale Volker....

Eli becoming such an important figure in their history.........

Also, did anyone else notice that the ship at the end of Epilogue, just for a moment, looked like the first/second Drone Carrier ship WITHOUT its wings?

That had me crying buckets, sentimental fool that I am.

So much heart-rending stuff in this ep, tempered by such exquisite humour. I'm not usually a huge fan of Binder's stuff (the ship gets too much) but this was so well done. Alternate versions of the characters mean they can play with them and take them in directions that we may or may not want them to, but "our" guys stay where they were and I really like that from time to time.

The jerky thing had me laughing, but that was just the beginning - I found the whole Greer/Rush thing to be lovely. Greer was genuinely concerned about Rush's well-being after the tremors. Greer is growing into such a caring man, which is just perfect development for the character.

That had me crying buckets, sentimental fool that I am.I cried buckets because of TJ. Both versions of her. :( What a clever way to discover that someone has illness that can't be cured, then giving some hope that there's a solution in the database, and then not solving the problem just like that. Poor TJ, she's been through so much. :( I'd love to see how they'd handle this situation in the next season. DAMN YOU, someone someone.

Okay, some moments, too.

Seeing Destiny's main weapon again. Ah, screw it. I'm going with 'everything' this time.

Volker getting in Rushes grill

His statement of
"I think i know why you are so broody.. its that we did all this, WITHOUT YOU"
was awesome!


# How Volker's death was handled, and how Park and Greer named their first child Dale in his honor

That was very touching. Especially the memorial they had for dale..
As to the kid naming.. see new thread i made for it.


# The finale with Camille at the school--very moving

That was to me the most tear jerking part of the ep. Especially how it then panned out to show the community and it slowly changing to the modern city we saw..


Varro & James getting together.

Since i have yet to see much as a glance between them to, it was kind of strange for me to see them pair up.


the multi-birth sequence.

it was strange them getting to see who had kids and how many..


four sons

three daughters

fifteen grandchildren...

...I'M TIRED

Who knew Greer/parks had it in them!


the end of Epilogue was perhaps THE most moving moment since.... since.... since.... ah frak.

I'd put it up there with Meridian, Heroes and the funeral they had for Daniel in Fire and Ice..


I have to say, sentimental idiot that I am, that I got a big ol' lump in my throat when we see the spaceship take off from Novus at the end. They mended their fences, built spacefaring ships, and left. Good on them.

That ship flying off.. makes me wonder who designed it.


Eli becoming such an important figure in their history.........

IMO it would stand to reasn he would.. Since he was
A) a collage attendee (mit at that),
B) one of the most knowledgeable (well math wise)
C) besides parks/volkar/brody, the most sciency guy they had
D) his expertize with the kinos.


The jerky thing had me laughing, but that was just the beginning - I found the whole Greer/Rush thing to be lovely. Greer was genuinely concerned about Rush's well-being after the tremors. Greer is growing into such a caring man, which is just perfect development for the character.

Which was a SHOCKER to me. Especialy after his coldness (of sorts) to rush in Malice.

Brody had his good moments as well as the comic (at his expense) or the snarky.

When they are building their original, lean-to shelters Eli is whining about wanting to build somewhere else, and Brody gives him several reasons (for the umpteenth time) why this location is better. Then his frustration boils over and we lose something (again) about the character.

It's kind of sad that the guy was continuing to be marginalized (partly his own fault) because he looked like he had a lot to offer the group. I would have liked there to have been some kind of footnote about Brody being responsible for various engineering achievements in their community, and perhaps that he became a great practical joker...

I did. You can't keep Greer down, and Park loves to read. :cool:


I also thought that James was written really well.

Whatever there was between her and Scott seemed pretty resolved, or at least we saw how it could be resolved. I'm glad she at least had somebody in the other timeline.

As for Brody, Gollumpus, the reasons for him being mad were listed off - he wasn't part of the team staying behind with Rush and Young back in Twin Destinies, he blamed Eli, thought Rush would come back, was just angry, lost his friend Volker... It just sorta snowballed. I have no doubt he made an impact on things in the engineering quota, and that's probably what made him a founding father of Futura more than anything.

Yup, got all that, amigo. I suppose I was thinking they'd do some kind of nod to each character about what they did do, even if it was "merely" to have children. Some side comment like, "We solved that problem because of Brody" would have been nice. As I had noted, while the guy likely did contribute in significant ways the character is remembered merely as a lonely, comic figure.

TJ did mention that Brody made the needle (in a short time) that she used to stitch up Young's leg. That was sort of a tip of the hat to him.

Lahela

Which was a SHOCKER to me. Especialy after his coldness (of sorts) to rush in Malice.

I think he's mellowing in general though, holding less of a grudge and opening himself to more emotional interaction with the people around him. For example, the hug with Wray when the shuttle flew over the expedition planet was something that would not have happened before Alliances. I wonder if his relationship with Park is changing his outlook.

I really liked him in this ep. Ever the reliable soldier, but also a decent man.

My favorite moments:


The elevator muzak
How Volker's death was handled, and how Park and Greer named their first child Dale in his honor
TJ's illness and seeing how it gradually affected their family
The beef jerky :D
Volker declaring that they managed to do quite well without Rush's presence
The finale with Camille at the school--very moving


I'll go with some of your favorites.

So many sad scenes the funeral scene almost made me cry so too did the flashback where we see young on his deathbed, saddest flashback however is TJ's and seeing Colonel Young and his 2 kids sitting at the table with 1 chair empty.

Favourite line
ARMSTRONG (narrating her diary entry): Two weeks have gone by and we now have a name for our home: Novus. It means "new." We're trying to settle in, get some decent shelters built. I'm still not sleeping well. Never thought I'd say this but ... I miss Destiny.

I liked Colonel Young going back to save Varro after he fell off the ladder, i would have hated to lose Varro especially as he was becoming accepted as one of Destiny's crew and was no longer just a Lucian Alliance soldier, he is a member of the crew.

Funny parts
Elevator Music
Brody's dam kids rant
Seeing one person after another give birth was kinda funny, Chloe telling Scott shut up was hilarious.

Epilogue is to SGU what The Shrine is to Atlantis, ie the best episode from each series, i would have included an SG-1 episode but with SG-1 having so many great episodes over the years, but if i had to pick one it would be a tie between Lost City and Reckoning Parts 1+2.
