The crew on the observation deck to watch as Destiny approaches the huge object that Volker and Brody have detected up ahead. They realize that they're on a collision course and Young tells the scientists to ready weapons. However, the ship begins to slow down and they realize that they're approaching a ship that is a near-mirror image of Destiny: another Ancients seed ship. Rush tells Young to stand down because the two ships will dock. Sure enough, the retros kick in and the two ships dock automatically.
As Young prepares to send a landing party across, he wonders how Rush knew about the docking procedure. Rush insists that it was just a hunch. The two ships start exchanging data as part of the automatic process, and Rush realizes that the other ship suffered damage, allowing them to catch up to it. They confirm that the countdown clock has stopped, but that the two ships will separate and depart in two hours. Rush wants to go over to the ship, but Young tells him to stay behind...
