Still recovering his battered body, an exhausted Dr. Rush (R0BERT CARLYLE) manages to unlock the master code to the ship’s bridge. There he finds a planet within range that seems viable but for some unknown reason, has been locked out of Destiny’s controls. Its Stargate also appears to be non-functioning. With the need for food and water becoming dire, he decides to override the ship's controls and have a crew shuttle to the planet in the hopes of finding much needed supplies. After conducting interviews with some of the Lucian’s, Camile Wray (MING-NA) argues a number of the prisoners can be trusted and may even be helpful. Col. Young (LOUIS FERREIRA) not ready to trust any of them has his suspicions confirmed when the Lucians stage an attack on their military detail. For Col. Young the only solution is to leave them all at the next habitable planet. Lt. Scott (BRIAN J. SMITH) flying the team to the planet by shuttle encounters violent turbulence and must come in for a crash landing. With crew badly injured and the shuttle unable to fly, they must find the malfunctioning Stargate before the Destiny jumps back to FTL.
