Tonight (November 30) on Syfy at 9 PM ET: Stargate Universe episode 2.10 “Resurgence”, written by Joseph Mallozzi (and Paul Mullie) and directed by William Waring.
Because executive producer Joseph Mallozzi wrote this script, we got to follow the episode’s progression from concept to final cut in his weblog, most of whose episode-specific entries we’ve reproduced in our Episode Guide in the Solutions Stargate Wiki (SPOILERS).
A recurring theme throughout his discussion was the declaration that it was “one of the most mind-blowing Visual Effects extravaganzas to date.”
Because it is the first part to the mid-season two-parter, Mallozzi made sure to include a little something for everyone, leaving us in a cliffhanger that won’t be resolved until the show returns to Syfy in 2011 (perhaps in early April like Season One did)! It was as if he had a checklist to go by:
Space battles? Check.
Lots of characters playing significant roles? Check.
Picking up and continuing current story threads and starting new ones? Check.
Getting into trouble? Check.
Getting out of trouble? To Be Continued…
Where will we—and our favorite SGU characters—be left hanging? Tune in tonight to find out and make sure to rejoin us here for our episode poll on the front page.

SYFY: All is not as it seems when Destiny follows a remote energy signature that leads them to a sea of damaged and lifeless ships.
Destiny detects a remote energy signature originating from an area outside its set course. Dr. Rush believes it could be coming from a potential new power source or could be a sign of intelligent life arguing that whatever is out there could prove to be of great benefit to the crew and Destiny‘s mission. Col. Young reluctantly agrees and permits Dr. Rush to manipulate navigation and take Destiny off course.
After a day in FTL the ship reaches a sea of wrecked ships, the carnage of a centuries old battle. With no visible signs of danger, Lt. Scott, Msgt. Greer and Volker set off in the shuttle to take a closer look. Eli uses Destiny‘s systems to recreate a simulation of the battle only to discover the debris is not what it seems.
Chloe succumbs deeper to the alien infection, knowing she poses a greater risk the longer she stays aboard the Destiny. But when a lost friend comes to the rescue it’s no longer Chloe’s alien abductors the crew has to worry about.
On Earth, Eli struggles with how to tell his mother the truth about what has happened to him. Wray takes leave to visit Sharon but finds the distance is starting to take its toll on their relationship.
