The Destiny is set on a collision course with a ship of similar ancient design found floating in space. Panic turns to wonder as the ships dock with each other. As they review the data stream, they learn they have come upon one of the Stargate seeding ships that the ancients sent out ahead of the Destiny. Col. Young (LOUIS FERREIRA) dispatches a team to investigate while setting Dr. Rush (ROBERT CARLYLE) and Eli (DAVID BLUE) to analyze the flood of new data. Once aboard the seeder ship, Lt. Scott (BRIAN J. SMITH) and his team discover that it might hold the energy to power the Stargate for a connection back to Earth. Realizing this might be the key to getting home, Col. Telford (LOU DIAMOND PHILLIPS) convinces Young to let him join the team aboard the mysterious ship. But just as the energy transfer is underway they discover there’s more aboard the ship than power.
