Destiny comes upon a heavily damaged ship floating in space. Dr. Rush (ROBERT CARLYLE) suggests that the alien vessel be explored in the hopes of salvaging any worthwhile data or technology. Without a shuttle, Rush and Col. Young (LOUIS FERREIRA) 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 (KATHLEEN MUNROE) 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 (DAVID BLUE) unearths their plan, the big secret is revealed much to Rush’s chagrin – especially when Young finds out.
