Robert Cooper is the best writer SGU has ever had. He gave us "Time" in first season, Vegas and Doppelganger in Stargate Atlantis and my all time favourite stargate episode from SG-1 "Threads". These are all very character based episodes. And there we have another great work from Cooper called "Aftermath". The story is fantastic in aspects of drama and drama is something what makes SGU so great.
Episode begins with Rush discovering the bridge and that's something that will effect all episodes in season 2. Because he can control the ship. This episode was also very sad, because we lost probably most likeable side character. Ferreira's(Young) acting was again fantastic and visuals were great as always. I'm looking forward to next episode to find out what this object at the end is.
