In the end, did everyone come back? Or did a few stay behind.
I was hoping Chloe was going to stay...
Waste of that busted up shuttle if no one stayed!

Well, when we see the returnees I believe we only see perhaps half to two thirds the number of bodies. This could mean that someone stayed behind or it just means we didn't actually see everyone walk through the door. I don't recall seeing Lt. James' hearthrob walking through the door.

Scott said eleven wanted to stay, that included TJ, Chloe and himself so... eight red shirts were left on the planet.

I was wondering about this as well. All military personnel returned, so did the rest of the eleven that wanted to stay, stay? Well, obviously Chloe didn't. Otherwise, what happened with the second shuttle?

I like how SGU has more open endings like this. :)

I don't, at least not with something like that. I understand not showing what the Obelisk was for, and who put the planet there and whatnot, but at least show us who stayed behind. Everyone on Destiny knows whos missing, why didnt they show us?

Because maybe it encourages us to think about the subject, and make up our own minds, on staying or leaving. :) Or maybe 'cause it will come back later on. Or maybe 'cause they don't want us to know how many people stayed there exactly. Or maybe: It's dangerous for TPTB to get into exact numbers in such a limited setting where bringing in new characters ain't that easy. :)

There could be so many reasons.

In general, it keeps you wondering and thinking about the episode. Leaving open the possibility for our own interpretation. And leaving open room for TPTB.

Actually I dont think so. At first people like airmen dunning and some Marines wanted to stay behind. However, Young said all the military people had to come with him if he was to leave the shuttle. SO that takes about five away from the number. I really dont think any more than 4 or 5 stayed behind.

So - all the military personnel returned. So did the "yeah, and along the way you do the best with whatever crap you happen to step in" guy, Chloe and Volker with a tray of samples.

After Young said "What will it be?" i remember seeing a few people go to the other side. A couple (maybe), an asian(?) man dressed in a dark-red (?) clothing, a woman wearing a red blouse and a man with gray hair. We didn't see the "we're here for a reason" guy (Caine) returning so he probably stayed behind as well. Around 6 people ?


And the second shuttle was left there.

I think they didn't show it because the ones who stayed on the planet are all nonames, except for that one guy Lt. James has a crush on.
I wonder though if those eight people will someday return, hopefully as mindless or brainwashed people/monsters who are used by those "friendly" aliens. That's what I was kind of hoping for with Chloe, when she got kidnapped in "Space".

I have a bad feeling about the ending though..... first of all. Young said that the other shuttle was not 100% and could never fly out of the planets atmosphere...and therefore was going to be left behind for those who stayed. My impression is that about 1/2 dozen or so civilians stayed behind.

The problem is.......the shuttle. It has a data base and record in its systems....if the planet was created by other beings....then anyone and the shuttle is now marked evidence that someone is on Destiny.

And if these beings are looking for the ancients ... here is their first clue. I think these actions of those left behind and the shuttle is going to come back and bite the crew of the Destiny in the ass later on.
For all we know.....given the hints of season 2......I am wondering if the Elucian alliance is going to be connected to this someway or another?

BUT i would have loved them talking it over afterwards, goin over the names.

Thank you for this - a fitting tribute to our beloved, lost, BaldingAsianGuy.

I had hopes that BaldingAsianGuy had made it back, and just wasn't mentioned. *sigh* If you need me, I'll be weeping in my bathtub with some emo music playing. And after that, I'll eat some Count Chocula with blood instead of milk.

For 2 seconds of screen time, his loss impacts me more then Janet's death.

..."The Girl Who Lived" reference? If so, I'm almost ashamed I got it....

(and yeah, I counted about 4-5 who stayed. Caine, a man and woman, and balding asian guy... maybe one more at most)

But he may not be lost to us forever! Perhaps one day, one day in the future, the crew of Destiny will be reunited with those that stayed. And we will see our brave BaldingAsianGuy again. We live in hope.

You know, when I finally get my 2000 posts and am allowed a custom avatar, I would like him to be that avatar. So that we never forget him. Sure, it is easy to have a soldier or top scientist or beautiful medic as your avatar. But who honors the science guy who's never been camping (he didn't raise his hand when Scott asked)? Who honors the fellow who holds his case so carefully to his chest (protecting his notes and random reprints there)?

I will. I'll honor him. I just need about 1530 more posts or so.

That was the one! I read about two bad Harry Potter fics lately, and got them mixed up, heh. My Immortal was the bad English one, while The Girl Who Lived was just a bad story with at least decent English.

How could you have missed Balding Asian Guy ? He brought so much depth and emotion to the show in the few scenes we've been honored to see him. It was incredible.

BAG will be sorely missed. :(

From J. Mallozzi's Weblog:

HBMC writes: “1. Did they leave people behind, and if so, who?
2. Was the pregnancy written into the show because of Alaina Huffman’s actual pregnancy, or was this always the plan?”

SPOILERS FOR FAITH…

Answers: 1. Yes. Kaine stayed behind with about a half dozen of his fellow crew members.

2. In Denis’ original pitch, a female crew member discovers she’s pregnant. As it so happened, actress Alaina Huffman announced her pregnancy around this time – so, rather than give the story to a secondary character, we gave it to the Tamara character.

Probabily cause he was a minor bit character... and most of them i don't really pay attention to.

Let just make sure to keep track of those who stayed behind & those who have died or have been lost(M.I.A.). Col Young said he lost 3 under his command: Spencer, Gorman, Rush ( but Rush made it back so he does count), Air pt 3 M.I.A:Doctor Andrea Palmer, Sergeant Spencer. Now the 6 list in Faith. Taking into account that 80+ escaped from Icarus base.
