Why hasn't Big Finish completed Stargate Universe for me?

Yes. For me.

The universe revolves around my desires poorly.

They make Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis Audios, so why not the less popular failure that destroyed the franchise?

Even if it's Eli just wandering around the ship going insane, they could conceivably give us a conclusion or even a third season.

Okay, they gave us a conclusion, but come-on, the only conclusions that I'm willing to accept are death or home, and they didn't give me either.

Is this a possibility for Big Finish or totally impossible?

Have you gotten in contact with Big Finish to make this request? That might help get you your SGU conclusion.

I'm marathoning SGU.

2 seasons in 2 and a 1/2 days.

It's a new thought.

Just about to finish, actually.

None of the Big Fish stuff is canon, so if that would suffice you might as well just go and find a fan fiction conclusion.

Re: Why hasn't Big Finish completed Stargate Universe for me?

Only Angry people write fanfiction.

Or smitten by fictional characters fetishists...

With a novel, an audio, comic book, TV or movie, as money changes hands antiseptically, I can trust that there's a filter which doesn't let the loonies play with any of the company typewriters.

The Angry people explain how everything was wrong and how it never happened, but the shut ins with fanboners are just writing 130 page love letters to a fricking idol on a pedestall.

No thank you.

You have touched a sore spot here. What would it have taken to do a two hour special to conclude the storyline?

Reading that sentence reminded me of the post-finale Enterprise novels, which have gone to great length to negate everything that happened in TATV, including Trip's death.

Better ratings.

Money. If you have some money buy the Stargate rights, rehire the idiots that drove Stargate into the ground and get a movie.

Not going to happen.

I like the fact they ended Atlantis because they thought they could make more money on a movie and then have Universe be the only show.

That worked well.

I love how the producers get the credit for 'driving Stargate into the ground', but seldom get the credit for making it was in the first place. Without people like Brad Wright there would be no Atlantis to lose to begin with.

Atlantis wasn't a great lose. Jonathan Glassner made Stargate what it is and Brad Wright followed onwards, but clearly needed more help than he was getting by the time Atlantis season 2.

Glassner was only an exec for the first three seasons of SG-1, even then, Brad was co-creator.

Wasn't he there for four?

I have no issue with Brad. I'm just saying that after doing so many seasons of Stargate they really needed to bring in a few new people to work with the show.

And under his watch the franchise died, with MGM's help, he did 17 seasons of a franchise, if / when Stargate comes back they just need a lot of new life.
