Having actually met and spoken with at an informal level the management at Syfy, I have a new found respect for the tough decisions they have to make.

Given no announcement of another Stargate series, this will end an 8 year unbroken run of Stargate on Syfy, and THIRTEEN years since the debut of Stargate SG-1 on Showtime.
