(repeated season 1.0 introduction to episode recap) Dr. Nicholas Rush: Destiny... The design is clearly ancient... Launched hundred of thousands of years ago. Matthew Scott: Where the hell are we? Dr. Nicholas Rush: Several billion light years from home. Matthew Scott: (to everyone) We are on a ship, but we have no idea where we are in relation to Earth. Dr. Nicholas Rush: This ship could be the most important discovery Mankind has made since the stargate itself. Everett Young: (briefing Lt. General Jonathan "Jack" O'Neill) These are the wrong people, in the wrong place... Matthew Scott: (to Dr. Rush) We've got a lot of wounded. We need to get home. Dr. Nicholas Rush: (to Colonel Everett Young) We barely have enough power to operate the main systems. This ship simply doesn't have the capability to dial Earth. (another chevron locks)
