Cancellation and Jan. 2007 episodes
Hi mr. cool:
Sorry for the belated response, but yes: sigh.
Per the web site: www.tv.com
there are still unaired episodes from season 10, that are in the can and I guess will be aired in Dec. 2006-Jan. 2007, but since Sci Fi channel is advertising tonights show as the season finale it's confusing, because usually they say it's the summer finale.
Per the website, www.imdb.com,
something called "Stargate The Alliance" has a cancelled status, I'm thinking that was a tentative title for season 11 kick off.
The letters column on www.scifi.com,
which is the Sci Fi channel's website has been fairly active since the annoucement. I think the Stargate fan base will be very unhappy if the ending is not tied up. I can only guess they are reshooting those unaired episodes or tweaking them now to wrap up as best they can, or perhaps negotiating for a mini series wrap up similar to Farscape. Doesn't seem like it though. Early wire reports mentioned some characters would be carried over to Stargate Atlantis. Later reports said that MGM was looking for alternatives but seems unlikely, Viacom/Paramount just ended their Star Trek franchise. The letters at scifi.com are both unhappy with the cancellation plus the making over the Sci Fi channel, and are venting at will.
Overall seems like parent company Universal-NBC is more concerned with promoting Battle Star Galactica. I was a little concerned last summer (2005) when I went past the NBC store in Rockerfeller Center in New York City, and in those windows saw all the Galactica posters--sort of seemed blatant where priorities were, in which show they were going with. That's just my personal opinion, not a dig at the show or anything, although I think it has a lot to do with the cancellation of SG-1, the idea of more money for special effects or salaries for Galactica. It will be interesting, next spring I guess if Galactica will be able to carry Sci Fi Friday, especially if Atlantis is cancelled (looks like it is next on the chopping block).
