    Default So they were going to drop the Novas/Novus race?

    They made such a big deal of the Novas city and how they might meet them again, even though the city is gone, as they spread all over the galaxy,
    Very next episode the writers make it so they completely skip 1/3rd of the galaxy and plan to go through the MASSIVE void to the next one.

    How could the Novas species be met again after they skip the galaxy?
    Seems the writers just decided to drop the story out of nowhere

    The only possible ways I could think we'd meet them again is they have Hyperspace technology, but when the ship was launched from Novas to another planet it was going to take 300 something years to get there only being launched rougly 30 years ago.
    So I doubt any of them expanded to the next Galaxy.

    I really disagreed with that move, I'm even ensuring we'll see the Novus people again in my fanfic because of it. I just don't understand why the writers would drop such a goldmine storyline, the one plausible way to really have continued human interaction outside of the "human aliens" back in the Milky Way.

    Maybe another colony invented hyperspace technology and after they lost contact with Novus and were attacked by the drones they thought Novus was gone so they left and went to another galaxy.

    Ever think that Eli takes the ship to that planet and lets it orbit for 300 years and hopes that there people make it and can help them with Destiny,...

    They said they wouldnt be able to find the ship, space is very vast.

    So Eli changes the Destinys course to orbit the new Novas planet..
    Orbits it for 300 years with everyone in stasis, on the hopes that the possibly in stasis or people in the generational ship, can help them fix Destiny? how would they do that, the only information they have on Destiny is from the Kino that Eli took with them through the gate in the alt timeline.
    And the knowledge of the crew that was passed down 2000 years. I really doubt theyd be able to fix Destiny much more than the current crew can.

    According to blog I read, they were either going to bump into a Militaristic race of descendants on the way which implies some had learnt how to jump galaxies

    There are ways around it, eg piggybacking on a seed ship, or they could always come back

    In essence the show seemed to be about exploring different galaxies, eg a different galaxy per season perhaps

    There is always a way around these things,

    Plus they left that planet BEHIND them.

    I wouldn't mind the idea of them meeting up with them again in space, No more seed ship being used by another race though, Before SGU started I was so pumped at the plot of how the seed ships are travelling through space and planting 1000's of gates everywhere and after I saw destiny I knew the seeder ships would be awesome, but the Ursini just seemed to make the ships look like they suck.
    The thing seemed to have like no firepower and was pretty weak.

    If I was the ancients and sending out these BIG ships to be travelling through the entire UNIVERSE, I know I would shove on some huge bloody space guns and shields. But no the seed ships ended up sucking and it really was dissapointing Id rather no more stories involving the seed ships.

    " Id rather no more stories involving the seed ships."
    Then again after SGU cancellation I guess I shouldn't worry about that

    There's no telling what a 3rd season would have brought and Rush made some veiled hints about running into them again. There's also the ALS cure that would have been sought after. I don't think the Novans were dropped so much as the end of the show made it impossible to revisit. After all, the Blues were supposedly left in another galaxy as well, and they reappeared, who knows who else would have?

    That is true. Had we had a proper 3rd season, who knows how we would have handled the Novans.

    not really the drones would kill the ship

    Well, after traveling for more than a million years any system is going to start to degrad. I'm sure they were uber awesome when they were orginally built.

    I would have really loved to see the main weapon at its full potential.

    In a way, I'm kind of glad we never did. Too many times, ships end up with these super-weapons that can defeat anything. It gets dull

    dacooker,

    They're all "Novans". They were divided between Tenerans and Futurans.

    When I heard about the Novans/ possible decendants being the possible opposing force in a season three I immediatly thought of the decendants of the Lucian alliance members. In "Twin destines for a brief moment we glimpse several of these members in the gate room with Varro, while we know that he settled down with James we know nothing of what happened to the other members of the LA. In my mind the LA members along with a few members of the destiny crew could have used the gates to travel throughout the galaxy before becoming seperated and unable to return. They could have created over several thousand years an advanced civilisation (maybe even the one that created the drones - although that does lead to come coninuity issues so maybe not) which was capable of FTL. Due to whatever reason (drones maybe?) they were forced to leave this galaxy hundreds of years ago and created their own civilisation in the next galaxy.

    Due to their decent from the LA members, some military from destiny and those who married/ joined them, their culture would be far more militarized and dark with many LA features in it as opposed to Terrian/ Novan ones. As a result of two thousand years of seperation they would be less likely to welcome the crew of destiny and due to legends and myth (much the same as Rush becoming and evil figure to the novans) the Crew of destiny is treated as a threat to be exterminated.

    David,

    Sure, but why would Brody go along with them. I don't think the LA would be terribly sympathetic to Rush or Brody yet it seems Brody was the founding father of the "Futruans".

    I think Current Brody seems uneasy with it too but once you look at it as having happened, it's interesting to see where it could have gone.

    Maybe they went along with him, then gradually took over Futura from within.
