Stargate: Universe, Spoilers Ahead!
We’ve got quite a few fans of the Stargate: Universe show here at WatchPlayRead. I myself am very thankful for James getting me into the show and helping me get caught up since I jumped in a little late. I usually try to stay as far, far way from spoiling shows that I really like, but I couldn’t help but read the synopsys that SyFy gave us about the first two episodes “Intervention” and “Aftermath.” We’ll start with the premiere, “Intervention”. Let us know what you think, and if you’re a fan of the show, come join us in our FORUMS so we can all geek out together.
Control of the Destiny hangs in the balance as the battle continues between the crew andthe 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 ships power. Dr. Rush conceives a risky plan to force Varro and the Alliance to surrender by draining the power from most of the ships 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.
And now for the season episode of the season “Aftermath”, the synopsys kinda make the you figure out the ending of the first episode, so beware.
With food and water supplies running dangerously low and tempers flaring, a shuttle is deployed to an unstable planet whose Stargate has been locked out of Destiny’s controls.
The Lucian Alliance prisoners are growing restless and desperate. They know food and water supplies are dwindling and ponder what their future may hold. After conducting interviews with some of the Lucian’s, Camile Wray believes a number of the prisoners can be trusted and may even be helpful. Col. Young disagrees and is of the opinion that they are dangerous. After a group of prisoners attack their military detail, he orders that they be relocated to the next habitable planet.
Still recovering from his torture at the hands of Kiva, an exhausted Dr. Rush manages to unlock the master code to the ship’s bridge. There he finds a planet within range that seems viable but for some unknown reason, has been locked out of Destiny’s controls. Its Stargate also appears to be non-functioning. With the need for food and water becoming dire, he decides to override the ships controls and have a crew deployed to the planet in the hopes of finding much needed supplies.
Lt. Scott leads the team to the planet. On approach their shuttle encounters violent turbulence followed by power failure. It crash lands and slides into the side of a cliff causing critical damage. The only way back to the Destiny is through the planet’s Stargate and when they find it, it is in far worse condition than anyone could have imagined.
I’m stoked for the second season to get here, and I’d be EVEN MORE stoked if you guys wanted to talk to me about it. Since my wife has no desire to do so.
