A brand new season of Stargate Universe is about to begin!
Syfy’s hit space drama moves to a new night when it premieres tonight at 9 p.m. (8 Central), picking up where the bloody cliffhanger left off: The Lucian Alliance has taken control of Destiny, Colonel Young and the rest of the military are about to be executed, Telford and Kiva have shot each other, a pregnant T.J. has taken a bullet to the abdomen, Chloe is shot and bleeding out in an unexplored part of the ship, and Greer and Scott are rushing along the outer hull to reach an airlock before the nearby pulsar hits them with lethal radiation.
Things, in other words, have been better.

Control of the Destiny hangs in the balance as the battle continues between the crew and the Lucian Alliance.

Shortly after arrival the Destiny crew find themselves joined by Varro and those of his men now deemed as traitors by Dannic. When a deadly electrical storm begins to brew, all must work together to find safe shelter and survive.
And from Sky1:
