Col. Young and Dr. Rush are back in control of the Destiny and the remaining members of the Lucian Alliance are in custody. They're not proving to be very cooperative however and trouble looms. Of greater concern is the lack of food and water on board. Rush brings the Destiny out of hyperspace - he now has complete control of all of the ship's data banks, a fact he has not shared with anyone - near planet that may provide the supplies they need. The expedition to the planet's surface is an a shuttle - it doesn't have a working gate - leads to tragedy and the death of a crewman. Rush is also having a strange experience on the command bridge he has found. Written by garykmcd

Robert Cooper's masterpiece!
6 October 2010 | by nikikozodercSee all my reviews

Robert Cooper is the best writer SGU has ever had. He gave us "Time" in first season, Vegas and Doppelganger in Stargate Atlantis and my all time favorite stargate episode from SG-1 "Threads". These are all very character based episodes. And there we have another great work from Cooper called "Aftermath". The story is fantastic in aspects of drama and drama is something what makes SGU so great.

SPOILERS: Episode begins with Rush discovering the bridge and that's something that will effect all episodes in season 2. Because he can control the ship. This episode was also very sad, because we lost probably most likable side character. Ferreira's(Young) acting was again fantastic and visuals were great as always. I'm looking forward to next episode to find out what this object at the end is.
