The Destiny is set on a collision course with a ship of similar ancient design found floating in space. Panic turns to wonder as the ships dock with each other. As they review the data stream, they learn they have come upon one of the Stargate seeding ships that the ancients sent out ahead of the Destiny.

Col. Young dispatches a team to investigate while setting Dr. Rush and Eli to analyze the flood of new data. Once aboard the seeder ship, Lt. Scott and his team discover that it might hold the energy to power the Stargate for a connection back to Earth.

Realizing this might be the key to getting home, Col. Telford convinces Young to let him join the team aboard the mysterious ship. But just as the energy transfer is underway they discover there’s more aboard the ship than power.

Good episode, but once again I find it amazing how Rush is able to get away with 'knowing' so much. Mind you, I do like the fact that he's using his abrasive nature to deflect some of the curiosity.

I don't know if this is the end of Col. Telford. Something tells me that these new aliens would keep him alive to study as they probably need him, given that the ships respond to a human presence. This is likely why the aliens were dormant on the seeder, unable to access the systems due to their physiology. Although why the ship was dormant in the first place with that much juice in the tanks is still a bit of a mystery to me, and one that will likely go unanswered.

So - is this the season's "big bad"? Were they just a visiting science team or are they something much more ancient (so to speak). Their legs were almost goat-like in structure and upper-bodies were nearly endo-skeletal. Presumably comparable in intelligence to humans, if not more so.

I love this episode, I'm sure we'll see Col. Telford again. So I'm looking forward to that, it definitely going to be interesting. Also looking forward to learn more about this aliens, at first the scene make me think of the replicators, the way they play with the cameras.:D

Aliens, a seed-ship full of pre-assembled stargates, people left behind. Man, this was good episode. Excellent, in fact. Just one of those things that you would want to find when you watch space-opera. Star Trek never cut this close, the farscape came close, but then again they were able to get out from all those situations pretty easily. This one, what choice they but do what they can, when Dr. Rush doesn't tell them about the bridge. But I do agree, there's going to be point when the secret bridge really comes in the play and then...

I would like to give 5 out 5 stars for this episode.

The most obvious question: an advanced alien race, will they kill their hostage or stun/capture him? As for the gates, it's an obvious way back to the Destiny, isn't it?

To me the alien race presented the people who set up the gates. It just cannot be an automated operation, and the way these alien were presenting themselves weren't entirely hostile or otherwise the Destiny would had been overran in no time.
