If Enterprise doesn't return for a 5th season, perhaps Ms. Blalock is lining up her next show.

Robert C. Cooper, executive producer of SCI FI Channel's original series Stargate SG-1, told SCI FI Wire that the upcoming eighth season will wrap up a few things. "To a certain extent I hope that fans will feel that at the end of this season that a lot the threads and storylines that ... they want to see resolved will be resolved," Cooper said in an interview on the show's Vancouver, B.C., set.

[font=Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Sans Serif]Among other things, the series will deal once and for all with the Replicator threat, Cooper said. "They become a force in our galaxy, and then ultimately get into a ... big war with the Goa'uld," he said. "And we kind of get caught in between the two and have to decide who we want to side with and help."[/font]

[font=Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Sans Serif]Cooper added that the show will deal with the fallout of Daniel Jackson's (Michael Shanks) ascendance and return to Earth. "Daniel's going to come to a bit of a closure with the whole ascendance storyline and what happened to him while he was ascended and his relationship with Oma and his kind of personal battle with Anubis and his feeling of responsibility for maybe not being able to complete the process of eliminating Anubis." As for Anubis (David Palffy), who appeared to have perished at the end of the seventh season, Cooper teased, "I'll say that there are still issues out there." Baal (Cliff Simon), another Goa'uld System Lord, will also return.[/font]

[font=Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Sans Serif]In response to a question about whether the upcoming season will be the show's last, Cooper said, "We also are not going to completely end the show. We never wanted to end the show. Our intention was to leave it open so that SG-1 was still out there on adventures and also leave the door open for features or TV movies or direct-to-video movies or whatever, that sort of thing, so that the franchise will continue." Stargate SG-1 returns with a two-hour season premiere at 9 p.m. ET/PT July 9.
