So in Air we saw that the ship has a fair few holes in it, which the ship patched using the shield. But given how low on power it was, the shield was flickering on and off, and letting air out as a result. We have to assume the flickering was due to insufficient power, as otherwise those areas would have been annihilated when Destiny dove into the star; it was probably brought back to full power by nicking power from the systems that were shut down.

So, assuming the Destiny is now back to full power (and why wouldn't it be; it should just stay in the star as long as necessary) the shield must be fully operational again. This would suggest that those damaged sections should now be airtight...

What new and exciting areas of the ship will be accessible now? What other systems will Rush be able to access now that power is restored? Personally I'm hoping to see more of that giant dome room; can't figure out what it's supposed to be, but it looks interesting. And hopefully they'll be able to find the proper bridge now...

The issue with the containment shields seemed to be a problem with the generators themselves being overtaxed. Basically the ship has 2 sets of shields, one for holding hull breaches that currently is functioning at or beyond full capacity, and the main shields that protect from solar winds, weapons and other things.

The power boost should give them some additional control over systems by being able to access more systems that they were being cautious about though.
