Well thankfully it looks like so far that guy didn't ascend. But then of course that leaves us to wonder where he went.

But really I wish tv shows would stop ending seasons with cliffhangers. I finding it annoying these days.

A classic cliffhanger with completely EVERYTHING being a total mess. To the point it seemed a bit too much.

Normally it's like "oh sh*t, we're in trouble", here, we could make a list:

1. Young and soldiers about to die.
2. shield anomalies about to kill everyone on the ship.
3. Chloe losing it.
4. Johanssen shot and possibly losing her child.
5. Telford and Kiva shot.
6. Scott and Greer still outside.
7. Eli jogging.

I have to admit, though, that I liked the ending with Young looking up and then everything going pitch black biggrin.gif

Yeah, it's a terrible trend. The most terrible part being that shows don't always get renewed. I guess the writers feel like network is less likely to cancel a show when the viewers are expecting a conclusion. It certainly didn't work for Terminator.

Yeah, that's how I felt. I thought they could have just finished up the show if they would have resolved at least 1 of those issues.

I thought it was interesting that the ship could fly directly through a star and it recharged the power, but flying that close to the binary cluster was causing those problems.

All and all, I was pretty satisfied with the second half of the season. I started anticipating the show. It had a huge turnaround and I can't wait for it to start again.

I think this is a great end to a great season.

Characters were interesting and sufficiently relateable to bring me to a point where I care what happens, so by the end of the season, I was invested in the "wheel of fate," so to speak.

Well said, I totally agree. I complained many times about not caring about the characters. In the end, I was right there.

Well in, like, Atlantis, I only kinda cared about the characters, and even then, not all of them... It was good story-telling but I wasn't exactly glued to the screen.

That may be because they were close to a binary pulsar, formed by a rotating neutron star and a white dwarf or another neutron star. The kind of magnetic interference that this system may cause cannot be compared to that created at the surface of the star. The shield suffers from each contact with the magnetic pulse, or X-Ray (oh, binary pulsars are often called X-Ray pulsars). The power of the pulse depends highly on the rotation speed, because with that rotation speed, the rotating neutron star strips away part of or all of the magnetosphere at the surface of its companion star, and if the companion star is a neutron star, you must realize the power the pulse ray will have because of that.

What I would have liked to see in this is a take on the gravitational effects such a binary pulsar may cause, and relativistic effects. Although, they can say they were at a safe distance from such effects to take place, I highly doubt it, and I would have liked to see it. biggrin.gif

Wow, I really miss those detailed explanations. That's good stuff.
