I don"t know why scyfy ended stargate universe like they did. I see a possible reason why they did, though.Ending it with Eli the last one gives scyfy an opportunity to pick the series back up after the three year FTL jump. I just finally got to get to where they cut it off and I believe the story could be finished or expanded on after the conclusion of destinies trip. Spin-off after spin off could come at the relief of every scyfy/science-fiction/fantasy fan future and past. The journey that stargate escorts you on is one of wonder and amazement. For this reason scyfy should bring DESTINY back with new characters and a once tie in episode with the original crew being rescued by home command. Sounds like a good plan to me.
