The Destiny is venturing into the void between galaxies when one of the drive units explodes, sabotage is not suspected despite the episode title, rather the simple fact of the age of the ship is considered to be cause. They decide to bring in an expert in FTL engines one Amanda Perry who has been developing the replacement for the Asgard hyperdrives currently installed in the BC-304 starships. Amanda is however a paraplegic and who ever swaps with her will have to spend maybe a month experiencing what Amanda has had to live with since she was a nine year old. Camille desperate to see Sharon again agrees to swap and the exchange is made allowing Amanda and Rush to be reacquainted after working together at the SGC.


While the ship is adrift the gate activates, the defence crew rush to the gate room and behold Chloe, Scott and Eli walk through, everyone seem surprised even the three wanderers who have been saved by the explosion onboard. We then get a pretty good montage which covers the following three weeks and with the aid of one of the recently discovered robotic maintenance units the drive pod is ejected and bypassed which increases the efficiency of the engines making it possible for Destiny to reach it’s destination. Amanda now bids farewell to Rush and reveals that she has also loved him but knew he had not yet gotten over the loss of his wife and after the events in “Human” Rush is reliving the same feelings and is unable to reciprocate her feelings (at this time). To complicate matters further they discover that Lt. James after an aborted use of the communications stones has been taken over by one of the aliens and it was “her” who had sabotaged the engines and then the aliens arrive on the scenes. In a desperate do or die situation Young prepares to sit in the Chair but Franklin finally speaks and returns to the device which almost killed him. As the ship comes under attack and the shields weaken he merges with the ship and then she jumps to FTL, Franklin however is missing…

Sabotage once again deliveries on multiple fronts, we get some solid drama with Camille and Amanda from both perspectives and we get a little bit of action, plenty of humour and another mystery which may be explained or maybe not. This weeks promo is for the Babylon Project Podcast which is delivering my quota for B5 and our thanks to Ian for joining us for the podcast, we are also grateful to both Mack and Brad for the feedback as always. We hope you join for our next show which is going to be “Subversion” and Steve will be joining us for that.
