Stargate Universe's Series-Ending Cliffhanger Will Finally Get Resolved

The third Stargate series, Stargate Universe, ended after only two seasons and just 40 episodes. It also ended on a fairly big cliffhanger that has remained unresolved for six years. But an ending, and a new "season," are coming in the form of a comic book.

Stargate Universe followed a exploration team on an ancient spaceship called Destiny, and their attempts to get back to Earth from billions of light years away. In the season two finale, the decision is made to put Destiny on a three-year, faster-than-light jump while the crew goes into stasis chambers. However, one of the stasis pods is discovered to be malfunctioning. Maths genius Eli Wallace (David Blue) volunteers to stay behind, believing he is smart enough to fix the pod before life support shuts down.

The fate of Eli will be resolved in a new Stargate Universe comic from American Mythology. It's described as a sort of third season where "Eli races against time to repair his damaged stasis pod, [and] a new danger to the ship threatens the fragile plan meant to keep everyone alive."

The comic, written by Mark L. Haynes and J.C. Vaughn with Giancarlo Caracuzzo doing the art, is titled "Back to Destiny" and will be out in the third week of June. While it may not be exactly as the show would have followed up the finale -- the comics are officially licensed, but Stargate Universe's writers and creators aren't involved -- at least fans will be able to get some closure.


    I thought that show was really finding it's legs when they cancelled it.

      You realize the faulty ftl drive they ejected was likely salvaged giving the blue aliens FTL.

      Same. It's such a pity, that happens with many shows. Universe had a lot of potential.


      It started to get really good and then bam, cancelled.

    Another day. Another Galaxy.

    You know what needs a resolution? DEEP SPACE NINE! I know I know, they wrote a book... but lets get a goddamn new tv series netflix? A'ight?

      Didnt he basically become an awesome black space jesus? Or was I so annoyed about the ending that I made this up in my own mind? Regardless, damn cool show!

        Essentially yeah, with the promise he would return. DS9 was essentially one giant Space Jesus allegory.

    fuck yeah!! i love stargate and will take anything i can get

      If you will take anything you can get - watch stargate origins. You will wish you never said that after watching this :)

    It started off like a rip-off of star trek voyager that they'd merged with the magic far away tree. That said im fairly sure they fired there writers at the end of season 1 and s2 was much better.

    "Race against time" is the reason I stopped watching star gate in the first place. It is something like 90% of the way they move the plot forward

    most people had already switched off by season 2. if only season 1 had been as good we could have had it around for a while.

    Ahhh Amanda Tapping...... The first of my many sci-fi series crushes

    Ah yes the cliffhanger that was "oh we just happen to have the exact number of pods for this random crew of people we have left. oh noes one just broke..."
    Was so unbelievably ridiculous.

    As many completely crap shows as Netflix and the like put out, I really think this would be a great candidate for them.
