I won't try to hide my disappointment with this episode. It took a lot of good ideas and wasted their potential, a trend I'm starting to notice in every other SGU story. While I like where the story is going, how it gets there often feels ridiculously convenient to the point of contrivance.
The story starts off with a reflective Colonel Young thinking of what he's going to say to the crew about their supply situation and the unlikely chances of saving Eli, Chloe, and Lt. Scott. Then Rush drops another little bit of fun news: Destiny doesn't have enough power to make it between galaxies, and they'll need to bring in a FTL specialist from Earth to help figure things out. This is where the episode's main drama gets started with the introduction of Amanda Perry, a quadriplegic scientist transporting to the Destiny via our favorite plot device: the communication stones. Lt. James tries it first and can't handle the helplessness of being in that body, and then Camile Wray steps up like the tough gal she is and takes on the challenge.
