The Destiny crewmembers left behind on an idyllic planet over a year ago suddenly turn up aboard a shuttle, giving Tamara renewed hope of finding her lost daughter. The circumstances surrounding their surprising return remain a mystery however. Dr. Caine and the others have no memory of how they got there.
Young, fearing alien involvement, isolates Caine and co. Tamara’s examination of the former crew verifies not only their identity but also that they are all in perfect physical condition. The investigation of the shuttle reveals the same: it is like new. The mystery takes an unsettling turn when one of the returned crewmembers abruptly drops dead. Wray lobbies Young to let her use regression therapy in the hopes of learning what really happened back on the planet. Young agrees, but the memories stirred prove disastrous for those who’ve returned.
Meanwhile, as her alien transformation progresses, Chloe prepares her final goodbyes.
An interesting episode that solves a problem, but raises a few questions that may or may not be answered.
If nothing else, it provides the crew with a shuttle which will no doubt be useful soon enough. As I said in a previous thread, I doubt many would be willing to do risky space walks, and a shuttle would make getting to and from non-gated planets possible.
I guessed the Final Destination style plot not long after the second person took ill. It does continue the question as to whether TJ's vision was really of the former crew somehow ascended, or was it just the ship messing with her mind? Something tells me that will remain ambiguous.
