Beware of SPOILERS for Stargate Universe’s “Earth” in the report below.
Brand new details have surfaced on “Earth,” the sixth episode of Stargate Universe‘s premiere season! It turns out that that title is not just an element (like “Air,” “Fire” and “Water”) — it’s also the name of a planet.
“Earth” brings some members of the new crew of the Destiny back home — or at least their consciousnesses. As previously reported, an Ancient communications terminal discovered on board allows people on the ship to communicate with Earth from another galaxy, by swapping bodies with someone on Earth.
Guest characters in this episode include Dale Strom, Williams, and O’Neill. It is not known — but certainly possible — if this last character is a guest appearance by General Jack O’Neill (Richard Dean Anderson).
Strom is an I.O.A. representative who meets with Camille Wray (who is one of those stuck on the Destiny, played by Ming Na) in Washington, D.C. Wray knows that she has been I.O.A. middle management at best, and now she’s in a position that is very valuable to the organization — which seeks power and control of the Destiny and all that it represents. They’re counting on Wray to play ball, and she knows it.
Colonel Young (Justin Louis) also appears to be on Earth, meeting with Williams and O’Neill about a potentially dangerous plan.
“Earth” is written by former Stargate Atlantis writer/producer Martin Gero, and will go before cameras in a few weeks. As always, these details are subject to change as the episode goes through the production pipe.
