Destiny comes upon a heavily damaged ship floating in space. Dr. Rush suggests that the alien vessel be explored in the hopes of salvaging any worthwhile data or technology. Without a shuttle, Rush and Col. Young must make a dangerous space-suited expedition to the derelict ship. Once safely aboard, they discover that the ship contains empty pods similar to those they encountered on the seed ship. As Dr. Rush gets the life support and power running, the ship’s engines suddenly engage, propelling it away from Destiny. With the power now depleted the ships drift helplessly apart.
Unwilling to tell everyone that he has partial control of The Destiny, Rush claims he has been working on a program to manually fire Destiny’s thrusters. Because of the complexity of the program he suggests Dr. Amanda Perry be brought on board via the communication stones to help. Once aboard, Rush covertly informs her of his success with Destiny’s master code and directs her to the bridge. With Rush’s help, Perry is able to steer Destiny back to the damaged ship. But when Eli unearths their plan, the big secret is revealed much to Rush’s chagrin – especially when Young finds out.
I really liked the way they played this episode, the way the rest of the crew found out about the bridge because of Rush being in trouble on another ship.
I also liked the fact that they addressed the fact that things are more difficult without a shuttle. I don't see many of the crew willing to do risky space-walks to get from Destiny to any ships they can't simply dock with.
One thing I would say is that I'm surprised they didn't put Greer on guard duty for Simeon as his current guard doesn't seem to be doing a good job - especially with what happens at the end of the episode! Then again, it wouldn't make for an exciting story as I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next week. According to David Blue, we get to see a different side of Eli in the next episode.
