I really liked this episode. They finally addressed the issue of someone 'using' someone else's body, and the effect it has on others. Nice.

I really don't like that Lucian Alliance fella. He sooooooo needs to be airlocked. And knowing how he is, why do they always put a 'redshirt' on him to keep track of him? You just KNEW he would break away.

I thought it was funny towards the end when you see everyone having taken their positions on the bridge. Like they were finally able to act out their wildest nerdy Star Trek fantasies... lol I was waiting for Young to tell Ely, "Out of the chair!"

In regards to the abandoned ship, what style did that look like? Did it look like Destiny, or some other race we've seen? It seems like that 'eyeball' porthole is sooooo familiar.

This episode was good for advancing the story. It is now known that Rush gained control of the ship and kept it from everyone. It is also known that Rush has no interest in returning home. So at this point I don't see how anyone could trust him.

We have more info about Destiny's mission. From what I understood Destiny was launched to get to the epicenter of the big bang because hidden information was found in the background radiation. Something about finding out what or who created our universe.

The only thing that bothers me about that is if it is so important why didn't the Ancients ever follow up on it? I still struggle with how this show makes Destiny and its information the ultimate in tech. The tech and info on Atlantis is far greater yet this show tries to make Destiny the must have ship.

I agree about that Lucian Alliance guy. I would have dropped him on a planet a long time ago.

I liked this episode. I've been craving information for a while, and finally we got a bunch of it.

That's pretty much what I understood. The Ancients found the signature of the creator of the universe and so they went to track them down.

I don't think the Ancients needed to follow-up on it, because they learned to ascend. Once they made it to that higher plane of existence, all of that information was available to them. I don't think they tried to make Destiny the must have ship. When they went through the gate, they had no idea where they would end up. Now they're on the ship and it is what is it. Less advanced than what they're used to, but at the same time, more advanced than any current Earth technology.

It was nice to finally get some info on what the destiny was built for, but i wonder how the destiny goes about collecting or decrypting the information of the universe, and is the process covert or overt. I would love to see the entire ship shut down for a small amount of time while it decrypts the universal code of universe 121.

i figure that it was this background cosmic radiation that split the Ancients into religion vs science before leaving their Alterra. Seems that something had to start the religion/ascension ideology and i wonder if this was the event, discovering that a message was written into teh universe as a whole, was it from God or was it form another advanced being.

Well, our society is split into science vs religion vs neither vs both, and I don't think we've needed to discover anything on that level. I think that as the level they are describing, God and their advanced being could be one in the same. A being that existed before space-time I mean.

Another good episode, nice to finally see what Destiny's true mision is. This episode also showed how over inflated Eli's ego is. He takes it upon himself to read private messages and insert himself where his not wanted or needed. He storms into the bridge yelling what is going on and tries to take control of the ship. This proves that Rush's actions hiding the fact that he could access the bridge and the ship's systems was the right course to take. The sooner Eli is shot, dumped on a plante or eaten by an alien the better.

I didn't think that it was odd for Eli to snoop, because young had previously asked him to keep an eye on Rush. I found it odd that the other doctor was so willing go along with his plot.

The name of the ship makes sense now. For someone as advanced as the Ancients to call something Destiny would have to be pretty important. Also, now we know why those short aliens ended up on the seeding ship, their ship got smashed up somehow.
