Storyline

Having resolved their situation and with an ample supply of breathable air, Dr. Rush turns his attention to their limited power supply. His short temper - not to mention his tantrums - is grating on everyone and Col. Young tries to establish some control over the scientist's activities. Rush has been working virtually non-stop, leading him to collapse. When the power fails completely the occupants find themselves hurtling into a new solar system. Elsewhere, several of the refugees record messages and some are on the verge of rebellion thinking information is being withheld from them. Eli is forced to help calm them. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Rush says, "This ship is powered by the stars themselves. Solar powered. Quite literally". What the writers don't quite explain is that any real world star drive would need to be powered by hydrogen fusion. Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe; it is found in high concentration in stars and thinly dispersed between the stars. Scooping hydrogen from a star is just filling up the fuel tank.

When Chloe is taking a shower in the steam bath, in some shots it is obvious that she is wearing a sports bra and biker shorts. See more »

Quotes

Camile Wray: Still, it's enough to loosen the rationing restrictions, isn't it?
Colonel Everett Young: You know, I think I know where you're going with this, and believe me when i say that I, too, could use a shower.
Eli Wallace: I don't think the showers use water. They just spray a sort of mist that you kinda stand in and it sort of beads up.
Lt. Matthew Scott: How could you know all that if you haven't tried it?
Eli Wallace: How do you know I haven't tried it?
Lt. Matthew Scott: Oh! We know.
Eli Wallace: Thank you, Lt. Rose Garden.
Chloe Armstrong: Oh, he's right, you're worse than he is.
Colonel Everett Young: Oh, you can tell them apart.

Great Episode
17 October 2009 | by rolfbeensSee all my reviews

I really like this episode because it reminded me of the old Stargate, the 'why so serious?'-Stargate. The characters are finally evolving and the actors who play them are getting more accustomed to their roles.

The story itself wasn't great, but it didn't have to be seeing as this was more the sort of episode which revolved around characterevolution. The awesome things: - The discovery of a shower - Eli walking around with the akeeba - Getting the hang of the shuttle (hope to see that soon) - The fact that the spaceship (unlike other spaceship) really seemed to go incredibly fast through the gasgiant - People finally seem to be enjoying themselves The lesser things: - What ever happened to confidentiality? - Why is nobody sending Carter up to the ship to help? - How come there is only one shower?

As a last note and I hope the writers are reading this: Could they please just miraculously fix the ship, I want to see the technology on board. Thank you, Arcadius
