Park (JENNIFER SPENCE), who was blinded while refueling in the blue super giant, has still not regained her sight while Tamara (ALAINA HUFFMAN) struggles with the knowledge, gleaned from the archives on Novus, that she has ALS, an incurable degenerative disease. Rush (ROBERT CARLYLE) and Eli (DAVID BLUE) discover that drones are positioned at every star between Destiny and the edge of the galaxy. They devise a plan that enables them to defeat a Command Ship and secure supplies, but not without a fierce battle that leaves Destiny badly damaged.
Eli convinces Young (LOUIS FERREIRA) that Destiny’s only option for survival is to head for the next galaxy in one continuous FTL jump that will take three years. This will require all of the ship’s remaining energy, so they must act quickly as recharging is no longer an option. Crewmembers return to Earth to say what may be their final farewells, before entering the ship’s stasis pods and the long sleep that will take them to the next galaxy. But when it turns out that some of the stasis pods are in need of repairs, a risky stop at a planet for materials may put the entire plan in jeopardy.
