Locations on the Icarus-like planet
Nicholas Rush (under the appearance of David Telford) is taken by Lucian Alliance forces led by Commander Kiva to the planet by Tel'tak. There, he is forced to work on the nine chevrons dialing sequence.
Thanks to David Telford's intel, USS Hammond, under the command of Colonel Samantha Carter, gets to the planet. The ship scans and notes the presence of naquadria as well as an anti-teleportation shield from a pyramid, avoiding the transfert of Nicholas Rush. Carter launch a ground attack with a squadron of F-302s. Kiva asks Rush if it's possible to dial Destiny. Rush replies that it will cause the planet to explode. Kiva orders him to proceed. The address is dialed an Kiva's faction soldiers start to evacuate through the Stargate with Rush. Kiva eventually gets in. Carter detects the unstability of the planet and orders all F-302s to fall back. Two of them are missing. The very moment before the explosion, Hammond jumps to hyperspace. The planet eventually exploses, deactivating the wormhole and killing a hundred Alliance soldiers in the process.
- This planet has no "Christian name". This name is the one given by Nicholas Rush when the latter arrived on the planet following his abduction by Kiva's faction.
Behind the scenes
- The view of the planet is actually the same than P4X-351, appearing in "Air", Part 1, on which the digital effects designers put lava trails.
