    Default Eli's Last Days...

    Was I the only one who thought that Eli should leave a Kino running for those 2 weeks, documenting his efforts to fix the stasis pod, and if unsuccesful, have him leaving a video goodbye to everyone that he helped put into stasis before ultimately taking his own life?

    If his attempts at repairing the pod is unsuccessful (and nothing else happens). I see him sitting in the chair to join Ginn in the Destiny's memory core

    That would eat up needed reserves, causing the FTL jump to fall short, and waking everyone up in a 1,000 years, if not ever.
    I don't think Eli would do that.

    I don't think Eli would do that.
    I think it's like some lightbulbs, or using the computer or open doors on the ship, it takes just a small amount of energy not enough to jeopardize the mission in any way.

    I'd like to think that too.

    I think it would've made a very weirdly awesome first episode if it was all Eli, going slowly crazy while alone and ultimately choosing the upload with Ginn option, with the other cast members appearing only in new Kino footage he was watching or at the end when they wake up and find out Eli's now part of the ship, and just maybe, he knows something about the signal now. DUN DUN DUN.

    I am just wondering, if Eli doesnt fix the pod, will the Faithliens intervene again?

    They were rumored to having more info uncovered about them in the 2rd season.

    I'm sure it is in its way!

    Personally, in my canon, Eli fixes the pod, and they all survive to travel the stars another day . . .

    Goodbye and Good Travels, Destiny!

    I know 100% of the people will have another meaning for it. But I think when Eli smile he's telling to himself while smiling: "Great, I just found out how to repair the pod to keep me alive". Then changes his facial expression to his 'wondering face' wondering about what he will do for the rest of the 2 weeks with the Destiny all by himself since the repair only takes one day.

    I could envision Eli fixing the pod at the last minute, in his rushed fashion. Gets it, goes to sleep.

    Unfortunately, one little insignificant number is off and the crew wakes up 20 years later.

    And the crew wake up to find Eli coming out of stasis 20 years older, and he just gives one of his half-smiles and a shrug.

    On it, working on getting a website and everything. Just don't want to do it by myself. I'm thinking a Stargate Horizon kind of feel.

    I'm in. If Syfy won't give us a third season, we will simply have to do it ourselves

    I am willing to offer any help I can to a SGU fan made third season. The first episode going to be the trickiest to write through. I like the idea of it being a single character episode.

    I think he'd fix it and get in right away to give them the best chance of making it all the way to the next galaxy rather than drifting in.

    That reminds me of an episode of Enterprise, where Phlox had to tend to the crew for several weeks. At one point he walked into Sickbay naked, with only plants in front of him.

    This is what SG1 fans did, and SGA did as well. You can't rely on SyFy (and more importantly, MGM) to give us ANYMORE Stargate, period, so, you can just leap off from where they left you. Although I was not a big fan of SGU (sorry, just too dark (literally) and dreary), I did watch it and felt it improved toward the end. The last scene with Eli was perhaps one of the best of the entire series, because there was definitely hope there.

    As far as series enders go, this one was upbeat, despite 99% of the folk being in the freezer.

    Modesty goes out the window when there's no one around to care.
