Did anyone else feel after watching this episode, that the replicators have been destroyed too soon?
I could not beleive even right towards the end of the episode that our people would suceeed in destroying the replicators. Surely the writers would not allow it and there would be some kind of twist and the plan fails or the replicators somehow survive. To be honest I was expecting the last scene of the episode to be some sort of revelation that some had survived, although i didnt expect them to be a rebel group led by 'repliweir'. I was expecting something like we have seen in SG1 episodes where Milky way replicators are destroyed - a few blocks or cells escape destruction and begin rebuilding.
Going back to my original issue, I think as an enemy the replicators (as a complete group/society, not just some survivors) had more to give the show as enemies. To me with their superior tech they posed a far bigger threat than the Wraith, who to honest I now find a bit boring and predictable. I think it ws a mistake to destroy such an enemy after the equivalent of just one season and revert back to the wraith as the big threat. The writers could have at least kept the replicators in until the end of season 4, and then maybe got rid of them as a season finale.
I just cannot see where the show can go from here. I looked through the episode guide on Gateworld and I cannot see anything that jumps out as 'must see'. Perhaps this is someones way of killing the series off. Shame.
