Air: Part 1
Part 1: When Icarus Base is attacked, its inhabitants are forced to flee through the Stargate. The base was created on a distant planet to take advantage of a powerful energy supply located there. Their goal is to try to determine the purpose of the mysterious ninth symbol of the Stargate, which they've never been able to lock in. In going through the Stargate, they are transported not to Earth, but to a very old apparently uninhabited spacecraft. With the group's commander injured, Lt. Scott and the chief scientist - Dr. Nicholas Rush - lead the exploration of the craft. Several areas of the ship have been damaged but it is basically functional. They are able to learn that they are, in fact, billions of light years from Earth. Part 2: Tensions rise as the new arrivals explore the ship. Dr. Rush comes under suspicion with his secretive behavior and attitude. He determines however that the ship is losing air. They find a damaged room that is partly exposed to space but the problem is that the door can only be closed from the inside. Who is prepared to sacrifice their life for the others? Once that problem is solved, Rush determines that the level of carbon dioxide is rising rapidly. The ship comes out of hyperspace near a planet that will have the materials needed to fix the scrubbers. They are given only 12 hours to get what they need.

As time winds down, some of the team decide to use the gate to transport themselves to a habitable planet, despite Ian's advice to the contrary.

Scott use the gate to travel to a nearby ice-covered planet to see if they can recover sufficient water to keep them going.

"TJ" Johannsen in charge, Greer searches everyone's quarters looking for who may have used their water supply. What they find is an alien entity resembling the sand creatures Young saw on the desert planet. After it attacks Cpl. Gorman, they set about searching for it but their attempt at trapping it in a room doesn't quite go as planned. TJ comes up with another idea.

Young isn't too keen on the procedure since it's not foolproof and even dangerous. With Young, Eli and Chloe visiting Earth, their replacements set about implementing the plan. Dr. Rush is dead set against it, but is he also putting a stick into the spokes to make sure the plan fails? On Earth, Young tries to reconcile with his estranged wife; Eli can't quite bring himself to tell his mother that it's actually him in someone else's body; and Chloe is hurt when she realizes her ex-boyfriend and best friend have hooked up.

Twin Destinies
The Destiny is in poor shape following its recent battles and has virtually no back up systems remaining. As the ship approaches a star for refueling, Eli wants to test his theory that he can dial Earth. While the simulations suggest that it will work fine, Rush is dead set against arguing there are too many anomalies in a star for it to work. Most are suspicious of his motivation however.

He claims to have traveled back in time 12 hours and relates what happened. The anomaly and time shift also present a solution to their need for redundant systems.
