Like a lot of good sci-fi shows, Stargate Universe
was cancelled before things really got interesting (think Joss Whedon's Firefly
). The gritty Lost
Space Channel series, which aired its finale May 10, finishes off the elaborate two season story-arc with a cliffhanger that will likely make diehard fans bitter about the unresolved loose ends---the makers of the series originally intended to finish up the show with a straight to DVD movie that has since been scrapped. So we may never know what happens to the enigmatic crew of Destiny, but hopefully if the creators of the show decide to take another stab at the franchise, they'll take a note from Universe
and bring back the stark cinematography and bare-bones sets that made the series distinct.
