    Earth Symbol Camelot the cliffhanger

    Camelot, the season finale of season 9, i as you all know, a cliffhanger. What we have also been told is that the story will have been written before the show gets word of whether or not there will be a renewal, so what we could end up with is a nine year running show without a complete ending, I am not so sure that this is how I would want the show to end but on the other hand we would need something spectacular to giv ethe show a satisfactory ending, your thoughts?

    It will definately get renewed

    It was the same situation with season 8 - they thought Moebius would be the last episode I was happy that it wasnt because it wasnt really good enough to be the last ep ever

    I agree with the Moebius comment, it was the only let down of season 8, it seemed to be there just for tying up with Atlantis. Threads would have been a good finale with Moebius airing just before Reckoning wit ha couple of scenes taken out, like the fishing scene at the end.

    I agree that Moebius should have been shown first and then have Threads finish off the season

    Well Camelot was the legendary stronghold of king Arthur. Maybe Camelot will end up being another Ancient city like atlantis or something. Maybe with Ancients still there?

    Chevron Re: Camelot the cliffhanger

    Personally, I love cliffhangers, and if, for some reason, the series isn't renewed, it will just be par for the course for SciFi, won't it? Remember a little series called Farscape???? They needed a mini-series to tie up "loose ends"......and not very well, IMO.

    Well... with "Farscape" mini-series they decided to shrink what was supposed to be 5th season (22 episodes) into 4 hours. Try to do it better... Saturn Awards for the best TV presentation anyone, btw? Not to mention 2 individual Saturns for Claudia and Ben (best TV actress/actor)
    Let's hope there's gonna be 10th season of SG-1, I really hate un-resolved cliffhangers...

    Please don't get me wrong, I didn't mean to imply that the mini-series, The Peacekeeper Wars was done badly, I loved it. I just wanted MORE!!!!! Four hours just wasn't enough, for me.

    As for a season 10, I'm 99.9% certain, there WILL be a season 10. But my fingers will remain crossed, as well as my eyes, until the "official" announcement is made.

    We all wanted more, but "thanks to" stupid SciFi Channel we got only this what was possible in this particular moment... if Scapers all around the world wouldn't scream loud enough we didn't get it at all. If Joss Whedon's "Serenity" is going to be OK, there's a chance that big screen "Farscape" is possible too in the future, especially that they've always wanted to do it

    On a small side-note, man would I love a Farscape movie. Definitely would be sweet.

    Now, on topic, I think the show will definitely get renewed for a tenth season. I just think there are still too many good stories to tell for this show to end this season. Hopefully many of you feel the same way I do, and keep watching this season. That should make the renewal an easy decision, I hope.

    Default Re: Camelot the cliffhanger

    Funny how I signed out two books "Knight Life" and "One Knight Only" by Peter David from the public library right before the final season titles were announced. The books are about King Arthur in the 21st century with Merlin, Modred, Morgan Le Fay, Gwen (his queen), Percival, Lancelot and the rest of the lot. It's really cool and refers back to Camelot and such.

    I think Camelot will be on Earth like Avalon. However, because we know Merlin, an Ancient, there will be Ancient tech there. AND when SG-1 discover it, they will not only find out about Percival's Quest for the Holy Grail but also how it relates to the Orii, which will ultimately lead to a cliffhanger and in season 10's opener, they will find Merlin, Arthur and maybe Percival in Avalon in statis chambers and have to revive them to help find the Holy Grail to use on the Orii.

    Or there will be an Atlantis twin called Camelot and the Ori will have taken it and brought it to the MW to fight us. This way we can see what Atlantis would look like if it had three Zed-PMs for full power, shields, drones, jumpers, warships, cloak, hyperspace travel and the whole works - without TPTB giving that kind of firepower to the lowly Tau'ri
    Sorry Ori, I was born okay the first time.

    see that's the thing. Atlantis was built BEFORE the Ancients ascended. When they ascended, that got a whole lot of powers... powers greater than Atlantis. Therefore, the Orii don't need an Atlantis-twin city in order for it to show its full power.

    I definitely wouldn't want to see that, Camelot, an Ori city, there would be no escape for the people of the Milky Way Galaxy. I want to know how they will discover Camelot, since it relates so clearly to Avalon, I believe Ancients/Altera will inhabit the city, or planet, there will be ships and other technology, I mean some of the Ancients were on Earth, for a time, after their return from Pegasus, we don't know if they actually lived here, they could have just visited from time to time, still there had to have been a planet that many of them made their home.

    You are very right in saying that, remeber Angel when it ended, the cliffhanger in the final episode was very effective and the best way to end the show. Plus when a show ends in a cliffhanger we, the fans, can write or think up our own endings so everyone gets the ending they want

    actually we dont know when the ancients ascended yet
    they may well have started ascending before they even got to the MW
    one thing is for sure though atlantis was built by unascended ancients otherwise they would have no need for a city.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    "Camelot is the name of the stronghold of the legendary King Arthur, from which he fought many of the battles that made up his life"

    assuming camelot is an ancient outpost , do you think we will find vala there?

    I just hope Season 9 sets up the Ori as the impossible to defeat bad guy, with disaster after disaster right up to the cliffhanger, and Season 10 is where we start gaining ground over them, but not much right up to the end, and then Season 11 is the turning point, leading into Season 12 being the conclusion and ultimate demise of the Ori. Finally ascended land is safe once again for Ancients and "others" alike, and they finally see us as more than just "lowers" because we saved them.
    Sorry Ori, I was born okay the first time.
