This week me and Tiffanee talk about the ego. What is it? How can a healthy ego benefit us and when can it get in the way, leading to unwanted consequences? How do we keep our ego in check?We also talked about the line between self-compassion and the need for self-honesty. When we feel stuck, sometimes the discipline to move forward is what's needed. Yet, when times get really tough, is cake the answer? Note: Please forgive me. The audio is a bit challenged on my end. I had a computer crash last week. You can easily understand me, but I do not sound my clear, clean and crisp self.

Wer nicht glaubt, dass man zu fiesem Trennungsschmerz mit einer gehörigen Portion Grandezza tanzen kann, sollte sich auf jeden Fall das neue Album „Goodbye“ des kanadischen Musikers Sam Vance-Law anhören. Der in Berlin lebende Songwriter ist in dieser Folge von Ruhestörung zu Gast und spricht unter anderem über das weite Feld der Liebe, Trauer und den bisweilen sehr anstrengenden Entstehungsprozess der neuen Platte. Außerdem verrät er seinen liebsten deutschsprachigen Witz, philosophiert über die Berliner Freundlichkeit und darüber, warum Zyniker*innen vielleicht sicher, jedoch nie glücklich durchs Leben kommen.
This week, we delve into the live version of Iron Maiden's "Wasted Years" that appears on Night Demon's newly released compilation album, Year of the Demon. The guys reflect on how they came to be familiar with Iron Maiden during their childhood years and how Maiden became an inspiration to each of them and to Night Demon as a whole. They talk about the mantra "What would Maiden do?" You will hear why Night Demon chose "Wasted Years" as a cover song, and specifically how they relate to it lyrically. We also explore the history of "Wasted Years" in the Night Demon set, from humble beginnings at a dive bar in Miami to one of the grandest true metal stages in the world in Germany. Night Demon also explain the omission of this recording from the Live Darkness album, and the subsequent decision to include it as the b-side to the "Vysteria" single in 2020. You will learn why Night Demon will not record a studio version of the song. Become a subscriber today at nightdemon.net/subscriber.

Les rayons cosmiques galactiques (GCR) ont un impact considérable à la surface de Mars. En janvier 2014, je vous relatais les premiers résultats de mesure de dose in situ effectués en 2012 par le rover Curiosity et son détecteur RAD. Aujourd'hui, de nouvelles mesures de cet instrument sont rapportées dans une étude publiée dans Icarus, cette fois au moment du minimum d'activité solaire de 2020, là où le flux de GCR était le plus intense... La comparaison des deux mesures n'est pas réjouissante pour ceux qui imaginent fouler un jour le sol de la planète rouge.

We've been expecting it all season, but finally, the Lucian Alliance make their move against Earth. And Camille and Greer are stuck in the middle of it. This is an exciting episode, but also a deeply character-centric episode. Let's talk about the Stargate Universe episode "Alliances". ----more---- Transcript Welcome to Nerd Heaven I'm Adam David Collings, the author of Jewel of The Stars And I am a Nerd This is episode 84 of the podcast. Today, we're talking about the Stargate Universe episode “Alliances”. The description on Gateworld reads While a U.S. Senator visits Destiny, Camille and Sgt. Greer are trapped when Homeworld Command comes under alien attack. This episode was written by Linda McGibney It was directed by Peter DeLuise And it first aired on the 21st of March 2011. This episode picks up right after Twin Destinies, dealing with the fallout of all that happened. Telford, the alternate timeline Telford, has arrived back on Destiny using the communication stones. He wants to know what happened. Young and Rush explain the whole time-travel thing. They speculate on what happened to everyone else who went through the gate. Rush says they were likely just killed. When Telford asks what happened to the other version of him, Young simply says that he died trying to retrieve technology from the other destiny. It was an accident. He doesn't say who caused that accident. That's got to be a lot to take in. How would you react to something like that? Technically, you're no longer in the timeline that you belong to, but the version of you here is now dead. He visibly shakes it off and says he's fine. He gets it. Well…understanding intellectually what happened is one thing. Figuring out how you're supposed to feel about it? That's something else. But Telford has been in the Stargate program long enough to know that weird stuff happens. This is when we learn that a senator is coming on board. She wants to decide if it's worth spending money to try finding another Icarus-style planet so they can send more people and equipment to Destiny, in particular, Rush's “message from God” , a name that he objects to. But this revelation has understandably created quite a stir back home. If they do manage to get a working wormhole to Destiny, it still only means they can send. Nobody on the ship is getting home that way. Remember that stargate wormholes are one-way. It certainly would be a game-changer for them to get some supplies from Earth. Food. Medicine. Even entertainment. All of those things would make a significant improvement to the crew's quality of life. Camille is going to swap bodies with the senator so she can check in with the IOA. They also need a male volunteer. This is confirmation that they actively try to match the sex of the people swapping bodies. It makes a lot of sense. Less awkward that way. Camille suggests Greer. He hasn't used the stones since they arrived here. He was borderline unstable when they came here (remember he was in the brig for attacking Telford). It's funny, but I think Greer is doing better since he ended up stranded on this ship. He's got it a lot more together than he did in the pilot. This mission has been good for him. Perhaps helped him figure out what's really important. He argues with Camille that he doesn't need R&R. He sees himself as the perfect soldier. He doesn't need rest. Greer IS a good soldier. One of the best, probably. But this is his big weakness. None of us are perfect. We all need basic things like rest. His unwillingness to accept that about himself could be a big problem for him and is likely at the root of his previous issues. Camille and Greer are greeted with a very cold reception on Earth. They're challenged to identify themselves and provide authentication codes at gunpoint. Now, authenticating a stone user is only common sense, and is a normal part of the procedure, but it's the way they're doing it. The gun, the aggressive tone. Telford explains. Earth is on a high terrorist alert. Nothing has happened yet but they're expecting the Lucian Alliance to attack Earth at any time. That's scary. And the target is homeworld command in Washington. Eli, Brody, and Volker are wondering who this guy is that's been sent to check up on them. His name is Dr. Covel. He's the new head of research at Stargate Command. Rush has worked with him before. Interestingly, Covel is played by an actor named French Stewart, who played Ferretti in the original Stargate movie, but not in SG-1. So that's cool. Senator Michaels wants a final and straight answer. Is dialling the stargate from within a star a feasible way to get home? Covel says the numbers looked good, but agrees with Rus that conditions within a star are inherently unpredictable. He's just sad nobody was able to go over the logs on the other Destiny before it was destroyed. AT the time, getting spare parts was more important than validating alternate Rush's story. Michaels is almost assuming that the other Rush lied about what really happened. She claims that her opinion of Rush is based entirely on Young's reports. And while Young admits they've had their differences, He still stands by the decision he made to support Rush and remain behind with him, with sufficient volunteers. Rush listens in a little to this conversation before making his presence known. Michaels evades Rush's question of ‘what are we talking about' with a request to see Chloe. She's known the family since Chloe was a little girl. Young gives Rush a knowing look. Rush wouldn't have asked what they were talking about if he hadn't already known the answer. Back on earth, they're sweeping the base for radiation. There have been some off-world bases where Lucian alliance people have planted naquadria bombs. One of those would do more than destroy Washington. It would probably destroy the whole of North America. And an explosion that big would probably affect the whole world. Luckily it's all clear. Greer wants to stay at homeworld command and help. He knows the Lucian Alliance. He's lived with them and he never trusted them. I think there's a bit of a subtle dig at Telford here, who was brainwashed into being one of their operatives. But Telford dismisses Greer. Those two have a lot of history between them. There's some unresolved conflict between Greer and Camille as well. He doesn't believe any of the intel the prisoners on board destiny provided. He thinks they should have done more to prevent the coming attack. And then it happens. As the building shakes, and the ceiling begins to collapse, Greer drags Camille out of the way, saving her life. They find Chloe on the bridge. Covel is impressed by what he sees. Chloe is delighted to see Michaels. Chloe has been working on improving the ship's navigation. They're continuing to put her new knowledge to good use. The main difference between Rush and Covel is that Covel seems a lot more personable. He actually has some warmth for Rush, while Rush seems very cold toward Covel. Rush plays him a recording of the fingerprint. The message Destiny was sent to follow. Covel can see the structure, even though the message is millions of years old, recorded on technology he doesn't understand and filtered through algorithms he couldn't begin to comprehend. But he's not sure he believes this whole thing. He can't transmit the data back home to be analysed properly by a whole team of people. With the stones, it's all word of mouth. They have to trust what Rush tells them. Covel is worried about the political aspects of all this. A lot of people will see this as proof of the existence of God, and some of them will try to twist this to further their own agendas. And then there will be those on the other side who try to bury and suppress the whole thing. I like how Covell doesn't just demonise religious people here. He's more even handed than that. He sees that there will be people on both sides wanting to further their own agenda with all of this. But one thing seems likely, this will become the greatest controversy of all time, to those who know about it. But Rush sees this as Covel not wanting to pick a side because he's not sure which is gonna win. Michaels seems to feel a special responsibility for getting Chloe home. Unlike the rest of the crew, she and Eli are not members of Stargate command. The others signed up to work on some distant planet filled with danger, even though they may not have anticipated getting stranded so far from home. Michaels never thought that life was for Chloe. Her father had such plans for her. It seems like such a waste. But I don't think Chloe feels the same way about her life. Remember, last time, she was one of the first to volunteer to remain on Destiny instead of gating home. It's been a while since we've seen an earth-bound story on SGU. One of the things that make the Stargate franchise unique and special is its present day setting. Yes, we get aliens and spaceships and distant planets, but we also see our own familiar world with cars and shops and pizza. Telford is among the survivors who have escaped outside. Camille and Greer are trapped under a whole lot of rubble. Camille manages to dig herself free. She finds Greer and helps him out. Greer's knee is twisted. He's kind of stuck under the concrete. And that means that Covel's knee is twisted, because that's his body Greer is using. It's such a responsibility being in someone else's body, isn't it. The building shakes and a whole lot more rubble falls. The explosions have weakened the structure of the building. Camille uses sticky tape to make a brace for Greer's leg. It works. These two are doing better than a lot of others. They've found some survivors, who are in bad shape. They find some who are already dead. Camille manages to get a radio signal out to Delford. Turns out the explosion was a cloaked Goa'uld cargo ship. It crashed into the building. The point of impact was near the comm room where the stones live. Camille and Greer shouldn't still be on earth. That means the stones must still be connected somehow. Telford is concerned there is no way they'd launch an attack just with a single cargo ship, without packing a little something extra. Maybe a bomb on board as yet unexploded. That means they need to get out of there. Soon. Young and Scott are escorting Michaels around the ship, giving her the tour. They introduce her to TJ and Varo. Michaels wants a private word with TJ. She knows the pressure TJ has been under trying to keep all these people alive. TJ is feeling pretty upbeat about her work. Things have been easier since they unlocked the medical database. But she's only had a medic's training. She's not a doctor. TJ doesn't think they're likely to find many volunteers, even if they could manage to dial Destiny. It's knowing they might never return home. How many people would be willing to make that kind of one way trip. I suspect TJ might be surprised. The survivor's way out is blocked. Telford is trying to get a bomb disposal crew to deal with the ship, but he's not overly hopeful. They think the bomb is naquadria and they've started evacuations. What exactly do they think evacuation can do? Evacuate to where? This is naquadria. Camille has an interesting idea. If they can't get out, and the bomb team are having trouble getting to the ship, maybe she, Greer, and the other survivor should go for the bomb. It makes a lot of sense, actually. Telford has concerns. It's very risky. And he rightly points out that they're not even in their own bodies. They're risking the lives of Covel and Michaels by doing this. But, if that bomb goes off, they're all dead. That will kill Covel and Michaels anyway. So Covel goes to meet Eli and gushes all over what he calls The Boy Wonder. Meanwhile, Brody and Volker are like “Hey. We work here too.” A nice little bit of humour that makes perfect sense in character and in the situation. Covel wants to know what Eli really thinks about Rush's discovery. Camille wants Greer to stop playing the hero, just once, and think a little about how they go about getting to the ship. This situation gives Greer a chance to really have it out with Camille. Seems he has some issues with her. In particular, he has a problem with people who talk and talk and nothing gets done. He doesn't think she knows him. She knows a file on a desk. Camille thinks he's afraid of her because she helps people, but she can only do that if they are willing to admit they have a problem and that's something Greer refuses to do. Greer thinks she wants to feel like she makes a difference but in reality, she just takes up space. This is a great dramatic character scene for these two. I love it. The other survivor interrupts their argument long enough to find the tech who was sweeping the building. He's dead but the Geiger counter is working. We get some great acting from Ming Na as Camille responds to the gruesome body. Ming Na tends to play really tough characters. Camille is a very different role for her. Oh, she's still a very strong person, but not in the physical sense, like most of the actresses' roles. And I think she's brilliant. So The whole area is flooded with radiation. Deadly levels. There's a very sombre moment when Greer says “so if we stay here much longer we'll die.” And Camille says “No. We're dead already.” I have no words to respond to that. Michaels hasn't finished her assessment but she has some concerns. It took a long time to get the first Icarus base up and running. Even if they could find a planet tomorrow, which is very doubtful, and they got presidential approval, it would still take at least 6 months before they could dial the ship. Covel bluntly says he doesn't think the crew will last that long. He doesn't think Destiny will last that long. He blames Young and his crew for that. Since they arrived, they've brought Destiny to the brink of destruction multiple times. And … well….he's not wrong about that. I'm not sure he can really blame them for most of that, although it was their deliberate decision to go exploring recently that led to the ship's significant battle damage from the drone ships. Camille is feeling really guilty. They've doomed Michales and Covel. It's their bodies that are flooded with radiation. The airman still wants to try to get out. Camille doesn't even see the point. It's over. Destiny is about to drop out of FTL which means the stone connection will be temporarily interrupted. Michaels and Covel find themselves trapped under rubble, their bodies flooded with lethal radiation. While they freak out, Camille quickly reports to Young. And that's when the airman decides to hold something sharp to Camille's neck, ordering Greer to put down his own gun or he'll kill her. In an example of really unfortunate timing on Young's part, he decides to disconnect the stones long enough to get a proper report from Camille and Greer, which would leave Michaels with a weapon to her neck and Covel pointing a gun at the airman. What could possibly go wrong? But nothing happens. Young removes the stones, but Michals and Covel are still connected. That's weird. The airman is trying to get them all to look for an escape. He still thinks there's a chance they can survive. Camile doesn't want Greer to drop the gun. Even if she dies, he can still go and disarm the bomb. She thinks if the airman gets the gun he'll kill them both. He's Lucian Alliance. Greer shoots the guy. Ironically, it was Camille's knowledge of personal files that helped her identify who this guy really was. She proves it by uncovering a clan tattoo. The plan was probably to just land the cloaked ship on the roof and walk away. I think the show might be redefining just what a destructive force naquadria is. It must be a tiny tiny amount. Which does make sense, since it is so rare in the galaxy. The radiation is spiking, which means they're getting close. They've found the hull. Camille tries to tell Telford she's found the bomb, but her radio isn't working. Too much radiation. There is nobody to tell her how to disarm the bomb. Rush is trying to figure out why the stones are not disconnecting. They've seen radiation cause interference before, but they're still there, which means the signal is getting through. So the radiation is just interfering with the commands of the system. Covel has done a lot of research into the stones. He might be able to solve this problem. Varro knows he's probably the last person Young wants to see right now, being former Lucian Alliance, but he can tell them how to diffuse the bomb. If only they could get that information to Camille and Greer somehow. Young's question is, how can he trust that Varo is telling the truth? Eli has a good idea. They could jump to FTL which would interrupt the stones again. They'll have about 12 seconds at the most to explain the disarming process. But they only just dropped out which means they could blow up the engine. Eli thinks they can live with it, but they can only do it once. OTherwise they'll completely destroy the engines. It's a reasonable plan, but once again, the crew will be bringing Destiny to the brink of destruction. Camille figures out some of it herself. The bomb is covered by a hologram that prevents you from seeing what you're doing, so you have to disarm by feel alone. Chloe has a chat with Michaels. Explaining how she was going to voluntarily stay in the other timeline. She tells Michaels what this mission means to her. How she feels like she's part of something important. Chloe is probably the only person who Michaels will truly receive this message from. This may be the only way to convince her to keep supporting this mission. They get their 12 seconds. Varro explains as quickly as he can. They get back before he's entirely finished, or so it seems. Varro doesn't know if they understood. But Camille and Greer are doing their best. At least they have some idea what they're doing now. But they both missed the last part. This is when Rush reveals that Covel has been sabotaging their attempts to disconnect the rings. He doesn't deny it. He saw the radiation levels when he went home. He knows their bodies are as good as dead. He needed time to think. Rush tries to remind him of what happens when somebody who is connected dies. The people at both ends die. Covel argues that Doctor Perry was in a weakened state. They don't know for sure what will happen this time. Again, more awesome callbacks. All these episodes tie together like a beautiful tapestry. In Young's view, Covel is trying to steal Greer's body, since his own is no good. Why do they get to live and we don't, Covel says. They put us in this position. It was easy for them to take a risk because they weren't going to have to suffer the consequences. And that's a heavy statement. And it may be true. As careful as Camille and Greer were, as guilty as they now feel, you can't tell me that even subconsciously, just a little, they might have been more open to risk in somebody else's body. It would be human nature. We are, at our core, selfish beings by nature. This is a very difficult moral dilemma. But to Young it's pretty clear. Covel will be going back to die in his own body. He doesn't get a choice. If I had to make the decision, I'd probably make the one Young has just made, but, I tell you, it would take a lot of soul-searching to do it. It certainly wouldn't be easy. Honestly, I don't know if I could do it. Speaking of dilemmas, Camille and Greer have one of their own. They're not sure of the last step. They could try something, but that could make the bomb go off. It's gonna go off anyway, but every second the bomb doesn't go off, is another second the evacuees have to get further away from the danger. Camille's voice cracks as she says it. What an emotional ride. They seem to have settled on just waiting for it to happen. Their death is already certain. And that gives them the chance for another quiet character monet together. Camille is sorry they never got along better. They're just so different. Greer is a man of action. He likes to do things. Camille likes to talk them through. Greer says well we're not going anywhere, so let's talk. But Camille can't think of anything else to say. Which Greer and I both find quite amusing. Varo has time to fully educate Michaels and Covel on how to disarm the bomb, including that elusive last step. So when Rush disconnects the stones, which he can now do, they'll be able to save the day. Michaels last words before she's ready to go are to ask Young to tell Chloe she's proud of her. Michaels knows she is going to her death. So does Covel. It's hard for me to begin to imagine a moment like that. Knowing that you're going to have to die, and there's no way out. They appear back on Earth and do disarm the bomb. The inevitable death of Michaels and Covel really tears my guts apart. Back on Destiny, it's been hours. Greer and Camille are still waiting for news from Earth. They haven't managed to get a connection yet, but they have somebody on stone duty around the clock. Camille is worried about Sharon, who lives in DC. Greer is thinking of his Mum. Things haven't been all that good between them. There are a lot of things he wishes he never got to say to her last time he had the chance. I think he's finally ready for a trip back home, if and when that becomes an option. This was another fantastic episode of Stargate Universe. The writing, both in terms of character and plot, was top notch. This was Linda McGibney‘s first script as a new staff writer, and I think she nailed it. And some wonderful performances from the actors as well. It's the big set piece episodes that tend to stick out in my memory, but this one is from now on definitely a favourite. Next time, we'll see a surprise return from a character we thought was dead. In the episode Hope. Until then, have a great two weeks Live long and prosper Make it so.

After working as a reporter for L'Intransigeant (1936–38), Queneau became a reader for the prestigious Encyclopédie de la Pléiade, a scholarly edition of past and present classical authors, and by 1955 was its director.From Queneau's Surrealist period in the 1920s he retained a taste for verbal juggling, a tendency toward black humor, and a derisive posture toward authority. His puns, sneers, spelling extravaganzas, and other linguistic contortions concealed a total pessimism, an obsession with death. His corrosive laughter rang out in the seemingly light verse of his childhood reminiscences in Chêne et chien (1937; “Oak and Dog”), a novel in verse, and in more philosophical poems: Les Ziaux (1943), Petite Cosmogonie portative (1950; “A Pocket Cosmogony”), and Si tu t'imagines (1952; “If You Imagine”).The pattern of his novels was similar: from a familiar setting—a suburb, an amusement park, or a Paris subway—emerged the vision of an absurd world. Such is the format of Le Chiendent (1933; The Bark Tree); Zazie dans le métro (1959; Zazie), probably his best-known work (filmed 1960); Les Fleurs bleues (1965; The Blue Flowers); and Le Vol d'Icare (1968; The Flight of Icarus). These chronicles of simple people are recounted in language that ranges from everyday slang to the loftiest poetic diction.From https://www.britannica.com/biography/Raymond-Queneau.

In this fan favourite episode of Stargate Universe, Eli believes he can dial the gate back to Earth from inside a star, but Rush wants to remain behind with a team to complete Destiny's mission. But when the attempt thrusts Destiny and Rush back through time, they have to re-think their plan. Lots of drama in this one. But what did I think of it? ----more---- Transcript Welcome to Nerd Heaven. I'm Adam David Collings, The author of Jewel of The Stars And I am a Nerd. This is episode 83 of the podcast. Today, we're talking about the Stargate Universe episode, Twin Destinies. This is our second time-travel story in Stargate Universe. Notice I said story, not episode. That's because the time-travel element of this story will reach beyond just this episode. The description on gateworld reads Rush expresses concerns when Earth approves Eli's plan to dial the Stargate home from inside a star -- and is proved right when a duplicate of himself shows up with a warning from the future. This episode was written by Brad Wright It was directed by Peter DeLuise And it first aired on the 14th of March 2012 Destiny is in bad shape. Remember, it went through a massive space battle in the last two episodes and that damage has not been magically fixed. Again, something I wish Voyager had done more of. We don't get a lot of space battles in Stargate Universe, but when we do, they matter. They have consequences. Most systems are technically working, but Brody says it best. “We're down to our last everything. There is no redundancy left.” Rush's perspective is that there's nothing we can do about it, so let's quit whinging and carry on with the mission as best we can. It's not like we have a choice. But Eli thinks there may be a choice. Back in early season 1, the brains back on Earth formulated a plan to get the crew home. The idea was to dial the stargate while inside a star. Telford was a big proponent of this plan, although technically, that was alternate Telford, under the control of the Lucian Alliance. The plan never worked and it was shelved, but recently, Eli and Gin started working on it again. Gin had some new insights to offer. Eli believes he can now dial the gate while Destiny recharges, without blowing up the ship. He has a simulation to prove it. Rush doesn't think the plan can account for the many things that could go wrong. But, of course, Rush doesn't want to go home anyway. He says the plan could cause the same kind of overload that happened at Icarus, which would destroy the ship. Scott doesn't see why that's a problem, if they've all successfully gated home, but Rush makes it plainly clear that he intends to remain on board, even if everyone else gates home. He wants to stay here and complete the mission. Young admits he was on board with trying to fulfil Destiny's mission, but things have changed. They're in really poor shape, and his first responsibility is to the people on this ship. I don't blame him. In his position, if he has a viable plan for getting home, he has to try it. He owes that to his people. But I do feel for Rush as well, who would choose to remain. I think he should have that choice, but it may be taken away from him if the attempt will destroy the ship. Young has banned Rush from anywhere he can push buttons, including the bridge. Armed guards are in place to enforce it. He's not taking any chances that Rush might sabotage the attempt. And I wouldn't put it past him. He's done stuff like that before. But Rush may have some genuine concerns regarding this plan. He points out that Eli is not an astro-physicist. He's a maths whizz. But the inside of a star is inherently unpredictable. The best mathematical model can't predict the unpredictable. But then, that's why Eli is running it all past the best minds of Earth. It'll be interesting to see if they agree with Rush, as he suspects. Rush wants to address the crew, to try to make his case for the importance of remaining on the ship. He says it'll carry more weight if Young stands beside him. And it warms my heart when Young says “I can do that.” Young doesn't trust Rush as far as he can throw him, but I do like it when they work together like this. Rush seems satisfied. Telford is very dismissive of Rush. He can't imagine why anyone would want to stay. He hasn't been here long and he's ready to leave, which is interesting, given how desperate lucian-controlled Telford was to get on board back in season 1. But there's a nice shot of Young at the end of the scene. You can tell, by his facial expression, that he's thinking deeply about all of this. He's taking all opinions seriously, including Rush's. It's so cool to see Doctor Lee again. He's the one who has traded places with Eli using the stones. He's surprised that “The Gamer” came up with this model. But I seem to remember Doctor Lee being quite into World of Warcraft. Although, technically, that was a false Doctor Lee created by energy beings in the Pegasus Galaxy, based on the crew's memories. I always thought that Lee came across geekier than normal in that episode, which might make sense, since that's probably how Doctor Weir viewed him. I know this is off-track, but it's just cool to see a familiar background character from SG-1 and Atlantis. There's an amusing moment between Brody and Eli. Brody tells Lee that Eli is possibly the smartest person he's met, but doesn't want Eli to know. It gets super awkward when he realises Eli heard part of the comment. But it's actually a little sad when we can't bring ourselves to tell people what we really think about them. I think the world could use a little more positive encouragement like that. As people, we're always so quick to point out the negative, but too often, the positive goes unsaid. Anyway, the people back on Earth are happy with Eli's maths. The plan is a go. They drop out of FTL and everyone gathers in the gateroom. Rush is looking a little nervous. Is he going to be able to convince anyone? Young approaches Rush and asks a very interesting question. “Can you operate this ship?” “With some help.” “What's the minimum you need to be able to do it? I need a number.” Rush says twelve. And then Young says “plus you and me?” Rush is very taken aback. What? Is Rush thinking of staying? “No, including,” he says. “So ten.” Before they can talk more, Telford calls them to the bridge. Something very weird is happening. They've received a subspace transmission from Rush. He's aboard the shuttle, except the shuttle is currently docked with destiny. The alternate Rush warns them not to dial Earth, or they'll all die. He says the only reasonable explanation is that he's somehow travelled back through time. I love Telford's reaction to this, as he scoffs under his breath “reasonable explanation.” C'mon Mate. You're on a spaceship billions of lightyears from Earth. You know time travel is possible. Rush is from 12 hours in the future. And he gives strong evidence for his story by recounting their previous conversation about the number. Ten plus two. Back in the gateroom, people are eagerly waiting to go home. Scott tells Chloe how he was so excited to go on this mission, but now, all he can think of is seeing his son. Nice that they're remembering and acknowledging that detail. But Scott is more nervous about meeting Chloe's mum than he is going through the Stargate. Eli wants to make sure that once they return to Earth, they're all going to continue hanging out. Scott says there'll be a reunion every year. Eli was hoping for something more regular. But it all depends if he'll be stationed on Earth. Eli is a little taken aback. Stargate Command are not going to ask him to join. And everyone else is a little taken aback by that. Of course they're going to ask him. He'll be right up there with Doctor Jackson, Colonel Carter, and who was that guy who kept staring at your…” Mackay, James says. That's awkward. I'd like to hope that Mackay and Dr. Kellar are married and enjoying their happily ever after at this point. But who knows. TJ is right about that, of course. The SGC would be insane not to put Eli to work somewhere. There are looks of concern when Scott and Greer are asked to report to shuttle bay two. Especially since they only have one shuttle. The being that emerges from the shuttle certainly looks like Rush. He rushes at Telford, saying “He's gonna try to kill you all. Don't listen to him.” That's when Young calls TJ to the infirmary. He's got a burn from an overload. Explosions all over the ship. The air got so toxic he had to abandon ship. But the time travel must have happened inside the star. They must have passed through a solar flare just as they locked in the nine chevron address. But rather than re-directing the wormhole, it seems to have thrust the entire ship back through time. So a new twist on an existing established method of time travel in the Stargate universe. They also suggest that the Destiny from the future is still out there somewhere. Future Rush starts to recount what happened in his timeline. After they agreed on the number, 10 volunteers, Young explained his offer. Basically, if they get ten volunteers, they'll remain behind. In his speech, he repeats what we know of Destiny's mission. Over a million years ago, the ancients discovered the fingerprint of an intelligence from very near the beginning of the universe. Destiny was launched to find that intelligence. They didn't dedicate an entire generation to making this ship on a whim. They saw it as very important. Of course, this doesn't explain why the ancients never followed through on this mission. We still don't know why that was. If they abandon this ship now, there'll be no coming back. That knowledge will be lost forever. And he's probably right about that. This may be their one and only chance to discover the secrets that Destiny was created to uncover. Rush can't do it alone. Despite all of his ego, his belittling of others, and his over-inflated sense of self, Rush needs others. He can't run the ship single handedly. So he asks them to stay with him. Young takes over. He believes those who want to go home deserve that chance. But he joined Stargate Command for a reason. So he is willing to stay aboard with Rush. And I have to say, this is huge. This is a huge gesture on Young's part. Honestly, Rush couldn't ask more of him. What Young is asking for is ten volunteers. Those who want to be here step forward. And I was shocked to see that the very first to step forward, with almost no hesitation, was Greer. Even though I've seen this episode more than once before, I never remember that detail, until it happens, and am surprised all over again. But at the same time, I'm not surprised. Because I can really see Greer making this choice. He is loyal and dedicated. At his heart, he's a good man who wants to do his bit. Volker also steps forward, giving Brody a little look, as if to say, “you gonna come join me, Mate?” TJ is next, which is interesting, because she was all set to retire from Stargate Command before she ended up here, but I guess she's been inspired by her experiences. Scott doesn't want to stay. Remember, he's got a son back on earth. But when Chloe steps forward, he had no choice but to follow her. That's the woman he loves, afterall. Man, I hate the idea of having to choose between your spouse and your child. The difference for Scott is, he doesn't know his son. But he knows Chloe. I think Chloe has been deeply impacted by her experience with the blue aliens. I don't think she'd fit in back on earth very well after all she's been through. And there's not really a place for her at the SGC. She worked for her father, the senator. James also volunteers. That's 6 so far. Then a bunch of extras step forward. At this point, I think they've got their ten. Eli is thinking really hard. And he starts to move forward. But Telford has had enough. He has to speak out against this. “You've already accomplished our mission,” he says. “Our goal was to investigate the ninth chevron address and you've done that. I do not deny that there once was a mission, but if it was as important as Rush claims it to be, they sure as hell couldn't expect us to do it. There is no noble voyage to save the universe or to meet God, or whatever it is that Rush has sold you on. There is only the day that this ship dies.” I'm not sure why Telford is so against this. Young is still going to allow those who want to go home to do so. Maybe he genuinely doesn't want these people to throw away their lives on what he sees as a fool's errand. Telford is convinced this mission will end in tragedy and failure. Young isn't so sure. “We don't know that.” Telford has a mind to try taking them all home by force. I had a good laugh when Greer said “Good luck with that.” Yeah, my money is on Greer. It's funny. Whenever I start watching this show, I find myself not really liking Greer, but by the time I reach this part of the show, I absolutely love the guy. He really grows on you as a character. So now Telford takes charge for those still taking part in the evacuation. He orders them to form two straight lines. They're going home with the clothes on their backs, because, as we learned in the pilot, everything you carry with you becomes a projectile when gating through a nine-chevron address. Eli has wanted them to expect us but they can't radio across a wormhole of this distance. Telford is gonna go first, to warn them everyone is coming. “In fifteen minutes, we go home.” Rush finishes his story. “And fifteen minutes after that, you were all dead.” Camille sees this as a second chance. “Tell us what went wrong so we can do it differently this time.” Eli's program is based on precise timing, and the required time is fast approaching. They dialled successfully. They made the connection. You can feel the excitement as the wormhole engages. Telford yells “Wait three seconds then follow me,” and he steps through. But just as he does, we see that shimmer effect on the event horizon. We know what that means. The wormhole is unstable and Eli's program can't compensate. Rush is trying to compensate manually. Credit to him, he may want to stay, but he's doing everything in his power to help those that want to get home to do so. Rush gets it as good as he can. Young yells for them to go, and they start flooding through the gate. At some point during all of this, they realise that the ship is overloading. It's going to explode, just like Icarus did. That means everybody has to go through. Even Rush and Eli. So much for Rush's dream of staying behind to fulfil the mission. I do feel sorry for him. Rush holds the wormhole open long enough for Young and Greer to escape. The wormhole disengages. He's left alone on Destiny. Rush just stood there waiting for the end to come, but the ship fought to stay alive. He uses the stones to check in with Stargate Command. He asks how many made it through. But it was only one. Telford. Telford, who was so determined to get home, who is now standing back on board Destiny in Rush's body, waiting for the ship to explode. So what happened to everyone else who went through the gate? Young calls off the attempt. And Telford wants to use the stones to confirm Rush's story with his other self. So at this point I'm trying to get my head around which form of time travel this story is using. Traditional time-travel doesn't cause people to be duplicated. Yes, you can go back in time and meet yourself, but you're both the same you, just at different points in your timestream. In that theory of time travel, once Rush convinced Young to call off the attempt, that alternate Rush would cease to exist, because his history has been erased. What we're seeing here is two distinct Rush's with different histories. This is the more modern idea of time travel where an incursion into the past creates a new timeline. A new parallel universe, if you like. That explains the continued existence of two contradictory Rushes and allows for this duplication idea, but if that were the case, then Telford shouldn't be able to find his other self back on earth, because that Telford is in a different timeline. Right? This is where they find the other Destiny, just outside the star. That's gotta be weird. It's almost like looking at their graves. Eli is feeling very guilty. Everyone on that ship died because of him. His program. But Chloe says the only reason they're even in this situation is because they were trying to save her. That kinda makes sense. It suggests they wouldn't have tried using Eli and Ginn's dialling program if the ship wasn't in such desperate trouble after the battle. But they would have been in that battle regardless of Chloe. They got in that battle because they wanted to explore a strange reading. Not originally to save Chloe. Of course, if Chloe hadn't been modified, she wouldn't have been able to navigate them there. But at some point, you've got to stop following the blame breadcrumb and just accept what is. Brody notices something interesting. Most of the damage to the alternate Destiny is confined to one side. That means they could salvage it for spare parts. There's that redundancy they were wanting. When I first saw this episode it bugged me. You can't take parts from the ship to repair itself at a different point in time. It's all the one ship. But I was thinking about the traditional version of time travel. This is the more modern theory of time travel. The moment that ship went back in time, it left the original timeline, and entered our timeline. The timeline of the show. So that timeline now has no Destiny, and our Timeline has two. So, yes, there can be duplication, and you can salvage parts from the other ship. They're going to board the other ship using the stargate. We learn here that unlike the gates in the milky way and Pegasus, the Destiny gates are not based on a known physical point of origin. Eli and the two Rushes just need to figure out the distance calculation. The crew are briefed up on what to look for. The most people they have, the quicker they can get it done. The two Rushes go over together. It must be weird having another of yourself, with only a few hours of difference in memory. I'm not sure how I'd react to that. Yeah…it would be weird. But you know they're going to do something to get rid of one of them by the end of the episode. But hold that thought, because we'll come back to it. Eli is really struggling with the guilt. If Rush hadn't been sent back in time by a freak of physics, they'd all be dead now. Killed by Eli's program. That's got to be hard to take. You see, for all his faults, Rush is often right. I like the tension of these scenes. If this was a Voyager episode, they'd probably have introduced some random aliens to add extra danger, but here, the only threat is the clock. And that's enough, especially as we see the ship slowly exploding as it gets closer and closer to the sun. One Rush has an idea: Take the weapon batteries. Double Destiny's firepower. It's not on the list. But it could be beneficial. What's really interesting to me is that Rush and Rush disagree on whether they should take it. It's interesting how just an hour or so of peril can change a person's perspective. The one who wants to stay and take it is the older of the two, which surprises me. I'd have thought it would be the other way around. Things take a bit of a darker turn. Telford doesn't believe older Rush's story about what happened in the other timeline. The valiant Rush holding the gate open for everyone else? Yeah right. It wouldn't be the first time Rush sabotaged something to get his own way and make Telford look stupid. Telford brings up the first time they tried dialling from inside a star. Rush sabotaged that attempt. We still don't know for certain if he was right or wrong to do so, but I think it's most likely he was right. What do you think? Who is right here? I tend to believe Rush, but as Telford points out, nobody else survived to verify his story. Things get physical. Rush accuses Telford of being the coward, of not believing in the mission. He got them killed with his insistence on dialling home. Not Rush. And when Rush pushes Telford, he collides with the live weapon's battery, nicely foreshadowed earlier. And he dies. The acting from Robert Carlyle here is brilliant. He really is good at what he does, and is deserving of his star status. Rush didn't mean to kill Telford, but he just did. And he's horrified at what happened. How is he going to explain this? Oh crap. So that's how they deal with the fact that there are now two Telfords in our timeline. They've just killed off our Telford. The alternate Telford is back on earth, having made it through the gate. I thought it was really cool when they brought Telford onto the ship at the end of season 1. It was nice to have him in Destiny with everyone else. And he stuck around for half a season. But we really didn't see that much of him. Almost as soon as he was here, he got stranded on the seed ship. As soon as we get him back, he dies. I was disappointed by this back in the day, wondering why they did that. But I think it was likely for real world reasons. Lou Diamond Phillips wasn't a main cast member. He was a semi-regular guest star. I get the impression he was quite a well-known actor outside of Stargate Universe, so he was likely expensive to keep around all the time. Pity. Camille has reported to Earth that they're alive and well. And as soon as alternate Telford heard this, he insisted on using the stones to come to the ship, preferably, replacing himself. As Camille says, that's weird. Our Rush, and Scott find Colonel Telford's body. It's a horrible moment for everyone. Rush thinks he knows where the other Rush is. He runs off to…do something. Young orders Scott to let him go. They only have a few minutes left. Alternate Rush explains it was an accident. Our Rush believes him, but warns that the others won't. Our Rush asks the alternate what really happens. He simply replies “I told you what happened.” He's got no reason to lie, so I assume he was probably being truthful. But who really knows with Rush. So where did Rush go? The chair room. He figures he's got nothing left to live for at this point. He might as well sit in the ancient chair and see what he can learn. This makes a lot of sense. This is a very Rush thing to do. So alternate Rush sits, and our Rush activates the chair for him., What he experiences, what he learns, we may never know. But he is engulfed in smoke. Kinda like Franklin was. But whatever he might become gets swallowed as the alternate destiny explodes in the star. Our Rush makes it through. You can tell by their facial expressions that Young, Eli and Camille have suspicions. Did Rush do something to Telford so they could continue with the mission? Has he done anything bad during this ordeal to ruin their chances? From what I've seen, no, he hasn't. Not our Rush. The other Rush killed Telford, but it WAS an accident. But Young has many historical reasons to doubt Rush. The way they got rid of alternate Rush in this episode made a lot of sense. It was a good way to go, from his perspective. But you remember how I said we knew they'd find some way to get rid of him so we wouldn't have two Rushes? What if they hadn't? What if they'd kept him around for a while and there were literally two Rushes walking around the ship? Can you imagine? Farscape did this. Two exact versions of one of the characters. Absolutely no sense that one was more real than the other. They were both completely real and equal. And that show did some amazing stuff with the concept. I think there could have been some interesting drama that SGU could have milked out of the similar situation with Rush. What they did was fine, but I still wonder about what could have been. So that episode was a lot better than I remembered. Some great stuff, and it will definitely have an impact later in the season. Next time, Camilla and Greer are gonna get stuck in the middle of an alien attack on earth as the Lucian Alliance finally make their move. I'll see you then for the episode Alliances. Until then, have a great two weeks Live long and prosper Make it so.
Presenter: Michael Heykoop - (TVCA1054) The ancient Greek Myth of Daedalus and Icarus tell the fascinating tale of a daring attempt to gain freedom. That which was supposed to set Icarus free ultimately imprisoned him even further. Sadly, there are many parallels between this story and that of mankind. How many inventions, movements and peace treaties have come along which have promised to set us free, yet the end result is the opposite? To put it another way, in terms of solving the worlds most basic problems, how often does it feel as though we take three steps forward, only to fall five more back? What is holding the world back from achieving lasting peace and prosperity, from ending pain, suffering, poverty and disease? Why does it seem our world is held captive?
Platinum Games used to be the golden standard for fast-paced action combat fun games in an era where Japanese game development went through a dark phase. They gave us many brilliant games, however in the way they stumbled and what used to be banger after banger then became inconsistent. We arrive in the present where they've released Babylon's Fall, a once promising Platinum experience turned into live-service and their worst received game yet. Alongside openly discussing the idea of being acquired, it seems this studio's independence hasn't gone very well for them and they would perhaps do what they do best under the mantle of a bigger publisher.

Carlsen picks Icarus for our theme of films that swap genres. True to the theme, it starts as a Supersize Me-style documentary before turning into a much scarier and more timely documentary.

We've made it to the mid-season finale for season 2. This one will leave us on a bit of a cliffhanger. The discovery of a mysterious alien signal will take the crew of Destiny a little off course and introduce a brand new and terrifying threat that will cause them a whole lot of problems for the rest of the season. Plus, things are coming to a head with Chloe. Join me for the excitement as we talk about Stargate Universe "Resurgence". ----more---- Transcript Welcome to Nerd Heaven I'm Adam David Collings, the author of Jewel of The Stars And I am a nerd This is episode 81 of the podcast. Today, we're talking about the Stargate Universe episode “Resurgence” The description on Gateworld reads The crew's new-found control over Destiny's flight path introduces new risks when they find themselves in the middle of a war between two races. This episode was written by Joseph Mallozzi & Paul Mullie It was directed by William Waring And it forest aired on the 30th of November 2010 Eli hasn't shown up for work on the bridge yet. He is, no doubt, still dealing with his grief over the death of Ginn, which is completely understandable. Rush gives the appearance of someone who is coping better. He's back to work, focusing on what needs to be done. He got his closure when he killed Simeon. Does that meaning he's feeling less grief than Eli right now? Probably not. He just handled it differently. The crew are struggling to understand how to operate the ship's controls. Rush has a better handle on it all, but then he's had quite a head-start. Brody has found something. An energy signature. Investigating it would take destiny about a day's detour from its predfefined course, following the seed ships. They debate the pros and cons, but eventually decide it's worth checking out. It could be a sign of intelligent life. Interestingly, Volker, Park, and Rush all agree on that, but while Rush and Park think that's a pro, Volker sees it as a con. I love the exchange where Park says “you can't judge a neighbourhood by a few bad neighbours”. And Volker says “You're kidding, right. That's exactly how you judge a neighbourhood.” They're both right. A neighbourhood gets a bad reputation because it has a number of bad elements in it, but that doesn't mean that everybody in that neighbourhood is bad. But, Destiny's track record of encountering alien life hasn't exactly been very positive. Also, note, they still can't quite figure how how to change the ship's course without Chloe to do the calculations. When they're about to drop out of FTL to see the answers, Eli has to be fetched by Rush, but when that happens, he does come. He's not completely locked himself away from life, but he definitely doesn't have the drive and enthusiasm for his work that he used to. What they find is a massive graveyard of spaceships. The sight of a great battle some time in history. How fascinating. One of the ships is familiar. The ship that Rush and Young explored a few episodes back. It looks like that particular species were the losers in the battle. Scott and Chloe are still having the same conversation. He alien transformation is spreading. Soon she wont be herself anymore, but something dangerous that has to be removed. Scott won't let that happen, but what can he possibly do to stop it? I can understand Chloe's perspective, but I can really identify with Scott. If it were my wife there, I'd never give up on her. Even though there seems to be no possible solution. But even he has to acknowledge that he has been pulling away from her. It's been happening for some time. We first noticed it in Cloverdale. I love how they're continuing to develop this over multiple episodes. This is exactly the kind of thing I wished they would have done in Star Trek Voyager. If this had been a Voyager episode, Chloe would have been infected, at the star of an episode, the drama would all occur in a short amount of time, and it would all get resolved by the end of that same episode. But this began all the way back in the middle of season 1. We're now approaching the middle of season 2. I love this approach to story-telling, and I'm glad that it has become the norm. This is the kind of character-serialisation I'm hoping to see in Star Trek Strange new Worlds later this year, even though the plots will be standalone planet-of-the-week type stories. Anyway, Chloe is putting on a strong face for Matt, but after she leaves, she breaks down and cries. She doesn't want to die. And she doesn't want to cause Matt pain, either. Camille has pulled Eli aside to talk to him. Before she can say anything, he launches into a defense. He's not crazy. He's come a long way in his 10 months aboard this ship. Once minute he was living at home with his mum, and the next, he's stranded billions of lightyears from home. Unlike everybody else, he had no training and no preparation. He wasn't even really given a choice. Jack had him beamed aboard the Hammond after he refused to get involved. Admittedly, once he was beamed up he went willingly to Icarus. The point is, he's done remarkably well, all things considered. And he's absolutely right about that. Good on him, I say. Apart from all of that, someone he really cared for died. Also, I love the Last Starfighter reference. Turns out, they're not worried because he's a little distracted. They're worried because given recent events, he should be a hell of a lot more than a little distracted. Surprisingly, they start talking about Riley, not Ginn. That loss is affecting him quite profoundly. Eli says something very meaningful. When your whole world gets reduced to about a hundred people, everyone becomes important. Funnily, a hundred people sounds like a lot to me. If I were to try to count the number of people I have a meaningful connection to, it would probably be a lot less than a hundred. But then, I'm an introverted hermit who talks to a camera instead of interacting with humans, so there's that. I really like how they spend time on Riley here. Once again, giving importance and significance to his death. He was no red-shirt, in the traditional Star Trek sense. Every life in this ship matters to the characters, even if that person doesn't get their name in the opening credits of this show. In universe, they matter. When Camille mentions Ginn, Eli's face hardens, as if to say, “how dare you mention her name.” And then just walks away. There's a hell of a lot of hurt there, and he's not remotely ready to talk about that. This was a wonderful character scene. I loved it. Until recently, they only had two working space suits. Brody just finished repairing a third, which Greer is wearing. He half-jokingly raises concern that he's wearing the recently repaired suit, and brody replies, “easier to fix if something goes wrong, which it won't, in all likelihood.” Now this adds a little humour to the scene but it actually makes complete and perfect sense. Better off having the repair guy wear the better suit because if there is a problem, he's not compromised, and has the highest chance of fixing it. I can understand Greer's discomfort, but Brody is right. This is just more of the slow burn of them getting more and more of the ship and its technology undert their control. This is their first time taking the newly restored shuttle out. Brody remarks how weird it is to be flying amongst a fleet of damaged alien spaceships, but Greer just thinks it's cool. I'd think it was cool too, but I'd also be feeling the awe, which I think is what Brody is trying to express. As they fly past, one of the alien ships powers upo. There is one particular ship the shuttle is heading toward, with the intention of boarding it. I imagine this is the ship of the type Young and Rush explored earlier. I'm not entirely sure why they chose this particular ship. They've already seen one of these. Why not investigate one of the other ships, from whatever other race was involved in this battle? The transfer from one ship to the other isn't exactly smooth. Greer has to float through space. In most sci-fi shows, every spaceship out there, even from races never encountered before, always have compatible docking ports, as if there is some universal standard that everyone knows about. And I'll put my hand up and admit I've done this in my own writing. This is a bit more realistic. Varro, the leader of the remaining Lucian Alliance, is confined to quarters. Not because of anything he did, but because he didn't sufficiently warn the crew of how unstable Simeon was. He thought he could control him. He was wrong. It seems there is a bit of a friendship between Varro and TJ. They talk about TJ's recent revelation that the people who came back from Eden didn't have her child. She has accepted that she was misled by the ship. Varro seems to be holding onto the possibility that there might be some other explanation. That's when TJ noticed something out the window. The powered ship. Destiny has analysed the debris and figured out what pieces go together to make up the various spaceships. The destroyed ships, those are the ones we've encountered before. The others, they're not destroyed. They're just dormant. Perhaps they were drone ships that shut down after they'd accomplished their instructions. And that's the ship that powered up, which TJ saw. Eli says they have to get out of there right now, which is probably a good idea., Young recalls the away team. The alien drone ships are waking up en masse now. They're zipping around. Young prepares to fire weapons. But he also asks Eli to send a message in whatever languages he can, explaining that Destiny is not a threat. This is an exciting scene. Stargate Universe has a good balance between science fiction and character drama. I've encountered detractors who have said SGU is not science fiction, it's just a soap opera. That is so not the case. If anything, I'd say that this show is the most genuine science fiction, in the truest sense of the term, than anything else in the franchise. So we're treated to a space battle as these alien fighters zip around Destiny. Typical Rush wants to jump away without the shuttle. Ever the cold hard pragmatist. Things are looking bad. The FTL drive has been damaged and weapons are failing. The next thing that happs is a big surprise. An ancient seed ship drops out of FTL, and Destiny is hailed by our old friend David Telford. Remember, he was left behind on the seed ship earlier this season. So…in a sense, Rush was right. If the seed ship hadn't shown up, they'd all be dead now. Telford seems to know what he's doing. Both ancient ships head into the star, pursued by the alien drones. Destiny and the seed ship are designed to enter a star. That's how they rechard. The alien ships are not, and they burnt up. It bought them some time, but there are other drone ships still out there, and they just have to fly around the star. But apparently, it's gonna take a lot longer than I imagine for that to happen. The two ships dock. Telford tells his story of what's happened since we last saw him. It turns out, the aliens that had boarded the seed ship were not hostile, just desperate. Telford was at their mercy, but they didn't harm him. They were curious. Communication proved difficult. Their stasis pods have a neural interface to keep the mind occupied while the body sleeps. That concept has been done in sci-fi before. Voyager comes to mind. Anyway, Telford saw a whole lot of images. Some of it were clear. Telford was able to form an understanding of the aliens and their history. They call themselves the Ursini. They began to trust him. They worked together to get the seed ship online. They've been chasing Destiny ever since. Telford got nutrition from the alien pods. And the Ursini need Destiny's help. A long time ago, the Ursini made the same mistake as our crew. They woke the alien drone ships. They had hoped the seed ship would give them an edge in their conflict. Does that mean that the destroyed ships, including the one Young and Rush explored a few erpisodes back, are Ursini ships? They were left behind by their own people and so went into stasis on the seed ship until Destiny showed up. They drained power from Destiny because they wanted to go home. They don't want to communicate with their homeworld until they're sure that the drone threat is over. The Ursini still have a working FTL drive. With the two ships docked, they could jump, and Destiny will come along for the ride, but the Ursini want our help. The drones are all controlled by a command ship. That ship is out of sublight range. They'd have to jump to its location and destroy it. That would make the drones inert. In theory. This is a common sci-fi trope that doesn't make a lot of sense. Why not give each drone its own CPU. I mean, the computing power necessary to program these things is currently sitting in my pocket. There's no reason to centralise things like this. It makes them vulnerable. Star Wars episode 1 did this with the battle droids. When the command ship in orbit blew up, the drones just shut down. That is so silly. Don't get me wrong, I understand the value of cloud computing, but even now, we can build software that will continue to operate after it's connection to the cloud is lost. I'm sure we can invent some head-canon to explain why this is the way it is, but the real reason, of course, is because this silly vulnerability gives our heroes a fighting chance. Rush thinks we should double-cross the Ursini. Get them to take us some place safe for repairs first. Play for time until we get our own FTL drive working, then say “see ya mate” and leave them without giving the help they need. Both Camille and Young think this is a terrible idea, and I agree. The Ursini are the first potential allies our heroes have encountered out here. Why make them an enemy unnecessarily. Plus, the Ursini may hold the key to getting back to Earth some day, by combining the power of the seed ship with Destiny. But there's another reason as well. What if there are more drone ships out there. Taking out that command ship is a much better idea than leaving it, and becoming enemies with both sides of this alien conflict. For such a smart person, Rush can be pretty dumb sometimes. And sadly lacking in compassion. I can't help but wonder if he has an actual psychological coindition that makes it hard or impossible for him to feel compassion or empathy for others. Maybe, or maybe, deep down, he's a bit of a jerk. The thing is, the show has made us feel compassion and empathy for him at times. He's had a hard life. That's probably part of it too. And that's what make us continue to somewhat like him as a charcter, even though he's so unlikable. Now despite all that stuff I just said about Rush having no compassion and empathy, he's the one who is going to try to counsel Eli, who is continuing to make little mistakes. Rush and Eli are in a very similar situation. They both lost somebody they loved that day. They both failed to save Amanda and Ginn. Rush actually does a decent job. Partly, it's because of that shared experience. Rush is able to describe exactly what Eli is feeling becauise he's feeling the same. And he can tell Eli from personal experience, that getting revenge wouldn't have helped one bit. He'd still be getting up in the morning, and she'd still be dead. Then Rush says something interesting. We're taught from a young age that everybody is equal, but that's a lie. Some people are better. It's those who recognsie they are better, and learn to exploit it, who succeed. He says Eli is one of those people, but the only way to achieve his potential is to make sure he doesn't get beaten down. That's why keeps Rush going. This is interesting, and it might even be what Eli needs to hear right now, but I don't agree with Rush. I'll admit that we don't all have equal abilities. Some people are especially gifted, far beyond the rest of us. But I believe all human beings have equal value. Equal worth. Telford has negotiated an agreement with the Ursini. We are going to go on a joint mission. In theory, this jump will be no different than the shuttle jumping with destiny, because it's attached. But the shuttle is small and was designed to do that. While destiny is significantly bigger than the seed ship. They keep mentioning that it's dangerous to jump within 4 hours of exiting FTL. And we're still in that 3 hour danger window. To my knowledge, they've never given a good explaination why this is a thing. Just another rule they invented for narrative reasons. Luckily, the jumps works successfully. Eli goes to share the good news with Chloe, and there's one element of the agreement that hasn't been mentioned yet. After the mission is over, the Ursini will help Destiny dial Earth. But something is wrong with Chloe. She's unrespoonsive. And something else is wrong. They drop out of FTL early. They've arrived at the command ship. Seems that Rush wasn't the only one wanting to double-cross. The Ursini have forced our hand. No time to repair Destiny. Destroy the command ship now! But what choice do they have? They engage the enemy. Unfortunately, the command ship is guarded by a bunch of drone fighters. Chloe suddenly wakes up and asks Eli to let her help. She is REALLY not herself. She expertly takes out the guard who incists on talking to Young first. If I were Eli, I'd be pretty scared right now. Scared that Chloe's transformation into “something dangerous” is complete. But maybe she can help them. Brody seals off that section of the ship to contain Chloe Meanwhile, the battle is not going well. They can't get near the command ship. Chloe gets through the locked doors. That alien knowledge inside of her is making her very capable. I love the combination of the tensio with the battle at the same time as the tension inside the ship. The tension inside is even more powerful because it involves a charfacter we care about. So there is more emotional impact. And Varro has a chance to help TJ. Chloe is doing something at a console. Whatever it is she's done, it's over. It's too late for Matt to stop her. Let's hope he doesn't have to be the one to take her down. He'd never be able to forgive himself. And them as Destiny continues to be pummeled by alien drones, the episode ends. I do love serialised story-telling. It turns out, this was actually a mid-season cliffhanger. That's a big thing in American TV. Possibly because they need time to finish making the later episodes of a season. It's never really been a thing in Australian TV, but one of the side-effects of getting shows at the same time as the US these days, is that we're exposed to the oddities of American TV scheduling. This was a fantastic episode. Some great action sequences, lots of aliens, some fantastic character moments, and even some humour that came naturally out of the characters, so it didn't pull me out of the story. We'll have to wait until next time to see what happens next. It'll be pretty exciting. The episode will be called Deliverance. There's some truly great stuff ahead of us. The sad thing is, we only have half a season left and then we'll be finished Stargate Universe. We'd best enjoy it while we can. Incidentally, I do have some exciting ideas about what we'll cover next once Stargate Universe is over. I might share some of that later. But for now Have a great two weeks Live long and prosper Make it so.
Icarian is an adjective that means excessively ambitious. Our word of the day comes from the figure of Greek mythology who ambitiously tried to fly — only to have his wings melt, leading to his tragic demise. Icarian is a word used to describe a person whose ambitions — like Icarus — were excessive.

Falling Forward is a 10-part sci-fi micro about love, hubris, and coding too close to the sun. Episodes release daily starting March 1, 2022, concluding with a supercut of the whole series on March 11. Falling Forward follows Icarus' efforts to take down Labyrinth Corporation after it's founder, Theseus, stole tech from Icarus' family. Fueled by rage at the death of his aunt Ariadne and ignoring the cautionary advice from his dad Daedalus, Icarus is set on destruction. But will it be the destruction of Labyrinth, or the destruction of Icarus? Transcript begins below. ICARUS: Holy shit, I'm in? I've always wanted to say that. ARIADNE: and the proof of a successful hacking of the unhackable app was supposed to be your, I quote, “stop calling things un-anything-able, it just tempts fate and I'll prove it” moment. ARIADNE: Getting caught is only one potential negative outcome. There are a lot of others. ICARUS: Are you gonna do the ethics thing at me again? Because I think we're past it. I just hacked into the biggest company in the history of humanity. ARIADNE: And you are prepared to cause one of the biggest disasters in the history of humanity as a direct result. ICARUS: I have the chance to do something good here. Something big. Something that will make all the shit we all dealt with mean something. ARIADNE: You have a habit of diving into things headfirst without considering the consequences.
