SGU 2.09 "Visitation" Episode Guide
MGM/Syfy.com Official Summary
Official summary is not available as this episode has not yet aired in the United States.
Crewmembers left behind on a seemingly ideal world over a year earlier make a mysterious return.
The Destiny crewmembers left behind on an idyllic planet over a year ago suddenly turn up aboard a shuttle, giving Tamara renewed hope of finding her lost daughter. The circumstances surrounding their surprising return remain a mystery however. Dr. Caine and the others have no memory of how they got there.
Young, fearing alien involvement, isolates Caine and company. Tamara's examination of the former crew verifies not only their identity but also that they are all in perfect physical condition. The investigation of the shuttle reveals the same: it is like new. The mystery takes an unsettling turn when one of the returned crewmembers abruptly drops dead. Wray lobbies Young to let her use regression therapy in the hopes of learning what really happened back on the planet. Young agrees, but the memories stirred prove disastrous for those who've returned.
Meanwhile, as her alien transformation progresses, Chloe prepares her final goodbyes.

- "And I hear that both Remi and Brad will be putting out their scripts early next week, episodes #9 and #13. I really think there should be a rule that prevents a writer from putting out a script until all of the preceding scripts in air order have been released. I’m going to try to regain my writing mojo tonight by having a couple of drinks and forcing the issue." — Joseph Mallozzi, April 23, 2010

There's a lot of interesting reveals in that story. ... Again, we take it in a different direction than you would expect. And it is, I think, a lovely story." — Brad Wright, Blastr interview, November 2, 2010
- "Also watched a Day 2 mix of #209, Visitation. I had my reservations about this particular story early on but I must admit that the near-finished episode is both engaging and thought-provoking." — Joseph Mallozzi, November 5, 2010
