When Stargate Universe ended only a short while ago, it ended a very long running franchise on a cliff-hanger! That did not sit well with fans, many of which began to write fan fiction to create some sort of closure!
One “SGU Virtual Season 3″ written by a guy named Laurence Moroney, often said by fans to be the best ending written for SGU, went off the web recently! It now says, “While some have claimed, destructively, to the contrary, the truth of the matter is that taking the virtual Season offline was my idea, done entirely voluntarily, for the benefit of an initiative that is going on that could yield results in a continuation of the SG-storyline. If and when something happens, I’ll announce it here. Speculation, and amateur legal advice is extremely destructive. Please avoid!”
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? This is all pure speculation but are they turning his proposed season 3 into an actual, official ending? A book ending SGU properly would be incredible and would really mean a lot to fans who were crushed by the final episode of SGU’s season 2.
The website, http://www.philotic.com/stargate/, held all 8 scripts for a potential 3rd and final season. I have read the first 3 (downloaded them before they were taken down) and so far they are as good as anything written by the actual Stargate writers, in my opinion. He’s got the characters down perfectly which is very impressive!
Hopefully something comes of this but really only time will tell. Moroney is keeping his mouth shut on this and I think we should all respect that.
EDIT: I have been saying that the SGU sets were destroyed. Turns out not all of them were! David Hewlett (Rodney McKay on SGA) bought many of them for his own purposes after SGU ended! You can read about that here! Thanks to Blake for pointing this out!
EDIT May 4th: THE SCRIPTS ARE BACK ONLINE NOW: http://ftlnews.com/2012/05/04/stargate-universe-virtual-season-3-back-online/
