From TV Guide:
Destiny docks with a similar ship that is identified as a seeder of Stargates. Lt. Scott boards the vessel with a team and finds that it may have enough power to open a stargate back to Earth.
The crew encounters a ship, similar in ancient design to Destiny, which may provide the means to return to Earth.
The Destiny is set on a collision course with a ship of similar ancient design found floating in space. Panic turns to wonder as the ships dock with each other. With data streaming in they learn they have come upon one of the Stargate seeding ships that the Ancients sent out ahead of the Destiny.
Col. Young dispatches a team to investigate while setting Dr. Rush and Eli to analyze the flood of new data. Once aboard the Seeder Ship, Lt. Scott and his team discover that it might hold the energy to power the Stargate for a connection back to Earth.
Realizing this might be the key to getting home Col. Telford convinces Young to let him join the team aboard the mysterious ship. But just as the energy transfer is underway they discover there’s more aboard the ship than just power.
