Season one, episode 13
Just to confirm my thoughts last week that the writers of Stargate Universe are walking in the shoes of Battlestar Galactica, this week there was talk of the hand of god, god having a plan, fate and all that stuff.
Maybe BSG is still too fresh in my mind and I’m seeing copied storylines where there aren’t any; or maybe I’m right. Anyway to recap vaguely:
Following the failed civilian coup, Young and his peeps are trying to forgive or at least learn to live with the pesky civilians.
Due to a computer malfunction, Destiny prematurely comes out of hyper-space near a planet similar to Earth. The planet shouldn’t be there and Rush concludes that the entire system was created by a far superior alien race.
When it’s time to leave some decide they want to stay including CJ who reveals to Chloe she is pregnant with Young’s baby. She wants a good life for her kid, which is understandable but she’s military and she’s the only one with above average medical skills.
Col. Young has to remind the millitary personal that they signed up for the long haul and commands them to get their arses back on the Destiny. However, the civilians believe that they were meant to find the planet. They are spouting biblical text and talking about faith and whatnot so Young is cool with them staying.
Will we see these civilians again? Do we care. I’m happy to see the civvy population dwindle.
