The second and final season of Stargate Universe was announced by Syfy on 13 December 2009.
Like the first season, the second season consisted of 20 episodes.
The series was moved from the franchise’s long history of Friday to Tuesday, along with Caprica, as Syfy had picked up WWE Friday Night SmackDown.

Syfy announced on 16 December 2010 that it would not be picking Stargate Universe up for a third season and that the Spring 2011 season would be the last to air on its channel.
Destiny is locked in a battle with a drone “cluster” and surprised that Chloe has contacted the aliens who abducted her in “Space” (S01E11).
The aliens engage the drones, allowing Destiny to destroy the command ship.
The Ursini aliens, on the seed ship, send a message that contacting their lost colony has alerted a second drone cluster.
This cluster has destroyed the Ursini colony, leaving those on the seed ship the last of their species.
The Destiny crew study an inert drone while Chloe is sent to the “Space” aliens to reverse her transformation – in return for Destiny’s help against the coming drones.
When the drone cluster arrives, Chloe’s aliens leave while the Ursini sacrifice themselves and the seed ship to buy Destiny time.
When Eli and Rush reactivate the remnants of the first cluster of drones and turn them on the second, Destiny is able to limp into FTL.
Chloe’s body is restored, though she confides to Rush that she still has enhanced mental abilities.
