In “Stargate: Universe” Season 2 Episode 2 “Aftermath,” the crew of the Destiny has to deal with two vexing problems. The first is the periodic shortage of food and other supplies. The second is what to do about the Lucian prisoners.
Spoilers surely follow.
There is a third problem. Rush is developing serious trust issues (again!) with Colonel Young. Otherwise, he might have told him about the fact that he now has access to Destiny’s hidden bridge and some modicum of control over the ship. He might also tell people that he is communicating with manifestations of his dead wife. Has he gone insane, or is the ship itself talking to him thus?
In any case, Rush is able to come out of light speed near a suitable planet that has a broken stargate. The idea is that a crew would land via shuttle and fix the stargate so that food can be brought in large quantities. Young also has the idea that this would be a great place to leave the Lucians, even those who are being cooperative. Young has trust issues with the Lucians.
But then Camille and Telford have trust issues with Young. They use the stones to report back to Earth behind his back. The upshot is that certain Lucians will be allowed to remain on the ship for the time being. Young grinds his teeth, but he has his orders.
Complications ensue when the shuttle, including Eli, JJ, and a fellow named Reilly, crash lands on the planet. Reilly is trapped under some debris which is keeping him from bleeding out from his wounds. That means he is not getting off the planet alive.
While JJ helps Reilly as best she can, the rest go in search of the stargate. They find it mostly buried. This is bad because they need the stargate to get back on board Destiny. So they set about unburying the stargate, partly by hand, partly with explosives. The latter is rather dangerous as if the stargate is detonated it could take a chunk out of the planet.
Eventually the stargate is unburied and is made to function again. Young leads a team back to the planet. In the midst of everything else, Reilly is taking too long to die. He is also in great pain. JJ would not have him stay alone.
So Young puts his hands over Reilly’s nose and mouth until he goes to that place where there is no more pain.
Most of the Lucians are let go on the planet. The Destiny flies on, a Flying Dutchman of the stars.
