Yeah, I had the same thought. (I'd typed it up to post, as well, but I'm not quite sure what happened there...) Kind of makes me wonder if there is more going on than mere "bad luck".
I haven't started any other endings yet, but I know that the PSP stuff for Rei has her Lilith consciousness telling her to get the Fruit of Life. Maybe...? We'll see.

Not by name or anything, but we were thrown two (arguably three) hints that something sci-fi progenitor-y was going on.

Bolded part very straightforwardly says, "there were seven carriers". There's no way to interpret this as anything else; "(noun) wa #tsu" is a basic grammatical structure for saying how many of something there are/were. If you want to say "types of" or "remaining", additional language would have been included
