Colonel Young (LOUIS FERREIRA) and most of his military personnel are held at gunpoint by the Lucian Alliance. While Dannic (IAN BUTCHER) has no hesitations to kill them he is convinced by Varro (MIKE DOPUD) to leave them on the nearest planet. Shortly after arrival the destiny crew find themselves joined by Varro and those of his men now deemed as traitors by Dannic. When a deadly electrical storm begins to brew all must work together to find safe shelter and survive. Meanwhile Dr. Rush (ROBERT CARLYLE) Brody (PETER KELAMIS) Chloe (ELYSE LEVESQUE) and Eli (DAVID BLUE) have sealed themselves off in the hydroponics lab and have managed to obtain some control of the ships power. Dr. Rush conceives a risky plan to force Dannic and the Lucians to surrender by draining the power from most of the ships shields killing anyone outside hydroponics by radiation. Not willing to give up Dannic locks into a standoff with Rush knowing his plan will also kill those members left aboard not protected by the lab. Chloe and Eli plead with Rush to think of Lt. Johansen who’s trapped in the infirmary recovering.


Episode 2 - Aftermath

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.


Episode 3 - Awakening

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.

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.

Episode 10 - Resurgence

Destiny detects a remote energy signature originating from an area outside its set course. Dr. Rush (ROBERT CARLYLE) believes it could be coming from a potential new power source or could be a sign of intelligent life arguing that whatever is out there could prove to be of great benefit to the crew and Destiny’s mission. Col. Young (LOUIS FERREIRA) reluctantly agrees and permits Dr. Rush to manipulate navigation and take Destiny off course.

Episode 12 - Twin Destinies

Destiny has sustained substantial damage in its last battle. A big chunk of life support is down and dozens of other systems including weapons and shields are on the brink of failing. Eli (DAVID BLUE) offers a solution. He believes he has figured out a way to dial back to Earth while Destiny recharges in the next star. Dr. Rush (ROBERT CARLYLE) strongly disagrees with the plan. He is concerned that when Eli creates a connection to Earth the energies from the star could use the wormhole to cause catastrophic damage. Col. Young (LOUIS FERREIRA) decides to consider Eli's plan and sends Eli back to Earth via the communication stones. On Earth Eli presents his idea to other experts who after agreeing with his calculations greenlight the plan. Realizing abandonment of Destiny is upon them Dr. Rush announces that he will not leave. He wants to stay the course and fulfill the mission. Knowing he cannot manage the ship alone he addresses the crew to see if there are any volunteers who would also stay. While the weight of Rush's plea hangs amongst the crew they are interrupted by a distress call. With all shuttle's accounted for no one can explain why the distressed passenger reports that he is heading their way in one of Destiny's shuttles.

Episode 14 - Hope

Unable to contact Homeworld Command since the Lucian attack the crew takes shifts connected to the stones waiting for a link. While connected Chloe falls asleep but wakes up with Ginn's (JULIE MCNIVEN) consciousness in her body.

While Chloe isn't connected to anyone her consciousness seems to still be present in her body ebbing and flowing to the surface with Ginn. But when Ginn physically starts reliving her death Eli must find a way to protect Chloe without losing Ginn. Meanwhile Tamara (ALAINA HUFFMAN) diagnoses Volker (PATRICK GILMORE) with end-stage renal disease. A kidney transplant is his only hope for survival.

Episode 19 - Blockade

When Destiny’s second attempt to recharge in a star is foiled by attacking drones the crew realizes the drones must have found a way to track the stars the Destiny plans to draw power from. Eli (DAVID BLUE) suggests that they attempt to recharge in a blue super giant a star so hot it won’t be suspect. But it’s a risky option. Rush (ROBERT CARLYLE) and Eli joined by Park (JENNIFER SPENCE) must stay aboard to manually override Destiny’s safety protocols and maneuver it through the star. The rest of the crew gates to a nearby planet for safety where they find an abandoned city whose former inhabitants appear to have been decimated by an alien attack. Knowing the use of the gate will draw the drones they prepare to hold out until the Destiny is finished it’s dangerous recharge.


Episode 20 - Gauntlet

Park (JENNIFER SPENCE) who was blinded while refueling in the blue super giant has still not regained her sight while Tamara (ALAINA HUFFMAN) struggles with the knowledge gleaned from the archives on Novus that she has ALS an incurable degenerative disease.

They devise a plan that enables them to defeat a Command Ship and secure supplies but not without a fierce battle that leaves Destiny badly damaged. Eli convinces Young (LOUIS FERREIRA) that Destiny’s only option for survival is to head for the next galaxy in one continuous FTL jump that will take three years. This will require all of the ship’s remaining energy so they must act quickly as recharging is no longer an option. Crewmembers return to Earth to say what may be their final farewells before entering the ship’s stasis pods and the long sleep that will take them to the next galaxy. But when it turns out that some of the stasis pods are in need of repairs a risky stop at a planet for materials may put the entire plan in jeopardy.
