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.
The series resumed on 28 September 2010, USA. In Ireland & UK, the series resumed on 05 October at 9pm on Sky1 and Sky1 HD.
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.
When Chloe falls asleep during her turn awaiting contact with Earth, her body is possessed by Ginn, whose mind survived after she was strangled while using the Ancient communication stones (“The Greater Good“, S02E07).
Ginn is unaware of her death and experiences unexplained choking incidents. As Ginn grows weaker, Chloe and eventually Amanda Perry resurface, alternating control of Chloe’s body.
Ginn and Perry are uploaded to the Destiny’s mainframe using the chair interface, but a power surge during the upload knocks out systems across the ship.
Volker has been diagnosed with end-stage renal disease which requires a kidney transplant from Greer, who is a match.
With no stones connection to Earth to get a surgeon, TJ attempts the transplant using information from the Ancient database. The power surge knocks out her access to the database, but Perry, now part of the ship, uses her connection to the database to guide TJ through the rest of the surgery.
Perry and Ginn appear to Rush and Eli, respectively.
Finally, a connection to Earth is established and Telford informs the crew that the bomb at Homeworld Security (“Alliances“, S02E13) was successfully disarmed.
