Several members of the crew begin hallucinating and their desires and phobias come to the fore. Lt. James believes she's spent a passionate night with Matthew Scott. Chloe sees her deceased father and they have a pleasant conversation. Lt. Scott sees his young son on board the Destiny. Sgt. Greer sees Camile Wray skulking around and is convinced she is once again plotting a takeover of the ship. The hallucinations may be spreading and TJ thinks she's found an infectious agent that may be behind it all. Written by garykmcd

15 May 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Hey, in the last months I read some reviews and comments of people who dislike the series. And their only reason to dislike it was or still is the cancelling of Stargate Atlantis. "Atlantis" was great, no doubt about it, but.. after seeing this episode I once more realised how much I personally enjoy SGU. (If you are reading this I most likely don't have to tell you how good the series is.) And it made me finally write something which is probably the biggest compliment I can give.

So about this particular episode.. being someone who has seen every episode so far I must say that it is some sort of a highlight. There is not that much revealed in here (hardly anything to be honest), it is more about what people have been through so far and in this case it is not a bad thing. It even made me feel more connected to the characters. The writing, directing and acting is ingenious (in my opinion), in this episode even more than ever before.

The series definitely had a pretty rough start (probably because it is not like SG1 or Atlantis), but if you managed to keep watching you most likely won't regret it.. at least I don't.

Cheers and enjoy, David
