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.
An expeditionary team from Destiny encounters wildlife in a forested world, including a catlike predator who injures Scott and Park before vanishing with TJ and one other soldier.
Young leads a futile search for the missing pair, while Greer struggles with an apparent loss of nerve.
Varro and the other Lucian Alliance prisoners offer their expertise with tracking the creature, but the combined forces walk into a trap set by the creature, where James and Young are wounded and forced to return to the ship.
After a futile counter-ambush, Greer and Varro are left as the only two continuing the search.
TJ directs them to the creatures’ lair, where it perceives the fire she had built as a sign of intelligence and allows Greer to lead them back to the ship.
Meanwhile, Rush, Eli and Brody find a section of the ship filled with stasis chambers.
Eli and Brody ignore Rush’s direction and investigate the chambers, and Rush activates a chamber from the bridge, freezing Brody and leaving Eli scrambling for solutions.
Rush later deactivates the stasis chamber from the bridge, keeping his involvement to himself.
