The Destiny needs to be refueled but every time they come out of hyperspace the drones seem to be waiting for them. It's not obvious how the drones know they're there but it doesn't matter a great deal since they only have one more try before running out of fuel completely. Ely suggests they go through a Blue Super Giant star, though the heat it creates might destroy the ship. They have little choice so Col. Young evacuates everyone to the only planet available with the exception of Ely and Rush. Lisa also stays behind to collect some of the medicinal herbs they've grown only to be trapped just as the Destiny goes through the star. On the planet, Young and the others find evidence of a destroyed civilization - and the drones.
Eli and Rush have found a way to identify the location of drone mother ships using the Destiny's long range sensors. The bad news is that the Drones seems to be awaiting them at every possible stop along Destiny's path. They find a temporary solution to neutralize the mother ships but realize that they cannot engage in a major battle every time they need to re-supply. Eli suggest that they use the stasis pods for the crew and jump to the next galaxy, a trip that will take three years. All goes well until they realize that one of the pods has been damaged and one person will have to stay behind in the hopes of fixing the unit in the short time available or die.
