SGU Season 2 official trailer

The second season of Stargate Universe was announced by Syfy on December 13, 2009. The second season consisted of 20 episodes,[1] which began airing on September 28, 2010, with the episode "Intervention". The first five episodes were reserved by the primary series writers.[2][3] New to join the writing team were Remi Aubuchon (Caprica, 24) and Linda McGibney (Homicide: Life on the Streets, Chicago Hope);[4] Aubuchon had responsibilities for writing episode 9, while McGibney outlined an episode in the second half with Brad Wright.[5] Filming started in March 10, 2010 with fourth episode "Pathogen",[6] directed by Robert Carlyle (his directorial debut)[7] Filming was delayed somewhat due to the 2010 Winter Olympics, which took place in Vancouver.

Season two of Stargate Universe expanded upon the show’s mythology, giving viewers new insights as to why the Ancients launched Destiny millions of years ago. Among such insights was the fact that Destiny actually has a destination so important that it overshadows the desire for the crew to get home, and that by pursuing onwards toward this destination, it may in fact allow them to get home. Another feature of season two was a gigantic battle in space featuring an armada of alien spaceships.[8] Furthermore, season two saw appearances from actors that previously appeared in Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, including David Hewlett and Robert Picardo.[9] The Stargate Atlantis character crossover occurred in episode 15, titled "Seizure", but did not shed light on the fate of Atlantis following the finale episode "Enemy at the Gate.[10]
