Did anyone notice the absolutely bada** move Destiny pulled while fleeing the Blues? Just as its FTL engines came online and it jumped, a handful of alien transports were preparing to land so they could board. But when the ship shot to lightspeed, it obliterated the transports all at once.

I don't have a screenshot of it, but I saw it and thought it was a great touch, especially considering that we learned in "Divided" that anything near Destiny when it jumps into FTL is destroyed.

Repairs had been done for awhile I think so it was probably back on board.

Good question (and thanks for noticing this s09119 as I didn't).

If it was destroyed, we'll probably find out next episode. I'm thinking that it was, and that they'll have to send people out there next time (like they were thinking about doing until they brought up the robot as a better solution)

Maybe it's still out there performing it's last command (repair the ship). It would be amusing if the crew had forgotten all about the robot and in the second season, they realise some sections of the ship previously unaccessible have become accessible again as the robot had been repairing the ship and sealing all the holes in the hull (like the 2 holes made by the blue aliens) all this time.

Remember in Divided when the shuttle's docking clamps wouldn't lock: Eli hypothesized that the shield would not envelop the shuttle and it would be vaporized when Destiny jumped into FTL without it. It seems the Smurf's little ships were destroyed because they were too close to the destiny when it jumped into FTL.

Scott was flying the bot around when in space. I just figure that since Scott was back on the ship when the attack was starting that the bot was also back on board, I cannot figure they would want to leave important tech like that behind..... Rush would have a stroke.

I think they mentioned that Scott was going to return to take the trip down to the planet (which is now infested with blue aliens), whilst the robot stayed behind to attempt to repair the ship.

If the robot had already finished repairs, then they wouldn't need to go down to the planet anyway and scout for long-term viability like they were planning to do.

Yup. Just like in BSG when a ship jumps to FTL right next to another one, there is some collateral damage.
