The wait is almost over! Stargate Universe returns to Syfy at 9 PM ET tonight (September 28) with episode 2.01 “Intervention”!
Season Two’s premiere episode was written by Paul Mullie (and Joseph Mallozzi) and directed by Andy Mikita. According to Mallozzi, the episode brings “the events of Incursion I and II…to an explosive conclusion” and is “chock full of great character moments.”
For sure, there are lots of questions that need to be answered concerning the condition of both Destiny and her crew who are at the mercy of strong forces from within and without:
Will Eli make it in time to let Scott and Greer back into the ship? Will Dannic execute Colonel Young and his military subordinates? Will Chloe be rescued in time? Will TJ and her baby survive the gunshot wound? Will Telford, Kiva, and Riley survive their injuries? Will Rush and Brody regain control of the ship from the Lucian Alliance? What will become of the civilians? Will the ship jump back into FTL before the next deadly radioactive blast from the pulsar?

[spoiler intro=”Episode Summary”]Control of the Destiny hangs in the balance as the battle continues between the crew and the Lucian Alliance.
Colonel Young and most of his military personnel are held at gunpoint by the Lucian Alliance. Dannic intends to kill them but is convinced by Varro, a fellow Lucian, to exile them instead. Dannic agrees and the group is forced to travel through the Stargate to a rocky, uninviting planet. Shortly after arrival, they are joined by Varro and his men who have been deemed as traitors and also banished. When a deadly electrical storm begins to brew, all must work together to find safe shelter and survive.
Dr. Rush, Brody, Chloe and Eli have sealed themselves off in the hydroponics lab and have managed to obtain some control of the ship’s power. Dr. Rush conceives a risky plan to force Varro and the Alliance to surrender by draining the power from most of the ship’s shields. He informs Varro that when the next energy blast from the binary pulsar hits, everyone other than those in the lab will be killed by the radiation. An enraged Dannic refuses to back down, no matter what the cost.
While an injured Lt. Johansen lies in the infirmary, her subconscious visits a familiar place where she receives some startling news.[/spoiler]
