Now firmly in control again, Col. Young and the other military personnel try to find a way to live with the civilians who tried to take control of the ship. When the Destiny prematurely comes out of hyper-space due to a computer glitch, they find both a sun and an Earth-like planet that should not be there. Rush concludes that the entire system was created by an alien race that is far beyond their imaginations. With the ship malfunctioning and a month's worth of repairs before it can jump again, several of the military and civilians decide to spend time on the planet. Hard feelings from the mutiny persist and it's an opportunity for everyone to mend fences. When the time comes to return to the Destiny, several of them decide they want to stay on the planet. Young is prepared to let them stay, but he imposes severe conditions. Written by
Did You Know?
Destiny is in a parabolic (open ended) orbit, passes close to the planet twice. This would not be possible. The planet is in a much slower circular orbit. When Destiny crosses the planets orbit the second time, the planet would still be on the far side of the star, perhaps 200 million miles away. See more
Lt. Matthew Scott
What if we were meant to stay there? All of us? What if that planet was our lifeline and we just let it go?
Colonel Everett Young
I can't pretend to answer that, Matthew. No one can.
