What was that thing flying away from the Destiny at the end of this episode? The only thing i could come up with would be some kind of "marker" to show where the ship has been. Or was it explained during the episode and i missed it? What dou you think?

I thought it was the other shuttle, because that's what it looked like to me. Because it looked like that other one that the senator died in.

I was wondering the same thing. it looked like a ship...? I don't know. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

yeah it was, remember it couldn't get loose because of the lack of oxygen. and now they have clean air the ship was set loose.

Nope, not the senators shuttle. The only thing keeping air in the ship is the door on that shuttle. The airlock to it was broken, that's why the senator died, to close it from the inside to save the others. No idea what it was... Can't wait to find out though. It's got to play an important part somewhere in the story.

Oriain said: "Nope, not the senators shuttle. The only thing keeping air in the ship is the door on that shuttle. The airlock to it was broken, that's why the senator died, to close it from the inside to save the others." But he locked it, so thus it was now locked and could be ejected. Or it's life support system, and everyone's dead because the ratings weren't good enough and the show's canceled. Just kidding.

the thing at the end was a Stargate the destiny is a ship that flies from place to place dropping off stargates we see in either part 1 or 2 of 'air' a big hangar filled with them

to DosSin: the door they shut was the door of the shutle itself, so if it would fly away, it would open up the hole again. I think it was a similar shuttle, just not the same. Don't know what it is doing, but i was thinking about those guys who left for that other planet against orders. They didn't make it back right? or did i miss something.Maybe this shuttle is send of as some auto mechanism to go try and pick 'em up? Could be a shuttle that places a stargate too, but i don't know. There's some confusion to me...this ship isn't just send out to place stargates, because it follows a route where there's already stargates present. Wasn't it more like a 'checkup' vessel, passing through galaxies where stargates have already been planted.

in response to Griphus' comment its not going to places where there are already stargates it only went there because Dr Rush told the ship they were in trouble so the Destiny stopped at the nearest planet with a stargate that had what they needed to fix the shipthe ship is on a set path with the sole mission of dropping off new stargates

My only question is why would this shuttle wait until they're in hyperspace to detach from the ship? Is the shuttle meant to be left behind? Seems like a waste of resources.

scottydoesntknow, Destiny doesn't drop off Stargates it follows those ships that do. i do wonder what happened to those who went off to a different planet. i guess we will find out next episode one of the people who left had in my eye's a bigger roll.

To me, it wasnt so much that the shuttle was supposed to be anything specific. It gave me a feel that the ship was alive and doing its thing in the universe all on its own and the occupants are just along for the ride. Gave me a feeling like there was alot of things to learn about this ship.

ok, now here's a theroy.the ship at the end, didn't actually look like the shuttle all that much. i did pause it, slow mo it, ect. i think it was a drone, launched from destiny to plant new stargates in its path. the reason it was behind the ship was because destiny was already traveling FTL and it just couldn't accelerate fast enough. my guess is that the destiny restocks these drones automatically, with star gates and fuel, and then sends them out in front. because they are smaller, and faster, they wouldn't have room to manufacture their own gates, not to mention the resources. if the ships in front of destiny were lone, with their own stockpile of gates, and resources, my guess is that they would have only been made to go as far as the ancients intended to go within their existence (probably less than the first hundred thousand years).

to scotty doesn't know "Destiny was designed to be a follow-up craft to numerous ships which preceded it in the universe. These other ships were sent out to gather data, resources, manufacture Stargates and deposit them on habitable worlds. Thus there may be hundreds to thousands of isolated Stargate networks in the universe. Destiny possesses knowledge on the composition and resources of these worlds to aid the crew in retrieving the necessary supplies. All that is necessary are the proper queries to the database." Gateworld Also its probably not a shuttle from destiny since its very different to the shuttle seen in episode "light" . Its probably not even ancient since it had red "propulsion" and Ancients never use red "propulsion"
