Tonight at the new time of 9 PM ET on Syfy—and later this week in Canada and Australia—is Stargate Universe episode 2.17 “Common Descent,” written by Robert C. Cooper and directed by Peter DeLuise.
Out this far in the universe, the probability of meeting a human civilization is extremely low, and the probability that they speak English and other languages of the Destiny crew seems even lower, but lo and behold: the Destiny crew encounters just that when they ‘gate to a nearby planet. What’s even more amazing is that these people not only knew that they were coming, but also their names!

Attacking drones return when the Destiny tries to recharge in a star. Eli proposes a risky alternative, which requires the rest of the crew to gate to a nearby planet for safety, where they find an abandoned city.
