We appreciate the efforts in raising money. Alas! The dream of Jonathan Annett is not going to be true as any other fan out there. The whole running campaign ended in 47 days with the deposited amount of $6,000.
Did Eli Survive In Stargate Universe Season 3?
There are many possible outcomes everybody can expect when it comes to conclusion of the Stargate Universe New Season. Writers hadn’t come to any perfect ending like what will be the fate of Eli & how the rest of the crew will survive. But there are different scenarios we can think of:
- Eli might find some power reserve which helps him to keep the life support of the ship active.
- Eli might get successful in fixing the whole ship.
- Eli might able to survive somehow for the three years in the ship after getting enough resources from the life support.
- Or may be some outside force or an advanced crew finds out Destiny.
There can be different story plots as you can see but fans got excited when the final plot get revealed by Stargate Universe team through a comic book.

The story continues in suspense as there was no original cast member connected. But this way everything gets solved & the plot comes to an end in a comic book.
Which Stargate Series Is The Best?
There is no choice honestly. Both the seasons were interesting & must watch for every Sci-Fi lover but SG-1 is always going to be the favorite one among the fans.
The characters were strong, hilarious & interesting. Season 1 has a more extended version with 10 seasons with proper execution. It’s worth watching & had a proper definite end. We quite believe that if you like SG-1, you’ll be drawn into watching STARGATE Universe; They aired together for two seasons & they complement each other nicely.
