Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Camile Wray (as Ming-Na)


Eli and Rush have found a way to identify the location of drone mother ships using the Destiny's long range sensors. The bad news is that the Drones seems to be awaiting them at every possible stop along Destiny's path. They find a temporary solution to neutralize the mother ships but realize that they cannot engage in a major battle every time they need to re-supply. Eli suggest that they use the stasis pods for the crew and jump to the next galaxy, a trip that will take three years. All goes well until they realize that one of the pods has been damaged and one person will have to stay behind in the hopes of fixing the unit in the short time available or die. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Everett Young: I guess it would be easy to dwell on everything that we have lost, but I think today I would rather think about what we still have, and maybe what we've gained. We're a... we're family now, whether we like it or not. Sons, daughters, sisters, even the slightly crazy uncle who, despite everything, still manages to come through for you in the end. You are the smartest, bravest, most compassionate people that I have ever had the honor to serve with. To family.

9 May 2011 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Knowing there is no intent to pick up later on SG, it's a sad ending :( The first of the SG endings that is not a "happy" one...

Sadly even, it's not even a "satisfying" ending. Sure it can be said only those who want will give Eli a tragic ending in their heads, but in the end, with all the "sideway slingshot episodes" SGU had, one can never imagine in ones head what a "happy suitable" ending would even be for Eli.

Having learned that SGA movie got dumped last April, sure do hope some of those brilliant minds come up with the idea of at least "wrapping" SGU up in a movie... That's the least these guys could do for more than a decades of fans!

Anyone around the globe think of starting a petition for a comeback on SG !? Sure do think we could gather up a good million signatures on it!
