SPOILER ALERT!! - With the air supply failing on the Destiny, a team gates to a desert-like planet in Air: Part 2 to search for the mineral needed to scrub the ship's air of carbon dioxide. After testing numerous sand samples without success, and with their window of opportunity closing fast, the group opts to split into two to cover more ground, despite the unbearable heat. While one team presses on to find the treasured mineral, the other has another goal in mind. When it is apparent that Dr. Rush (Robert Carlyle) can't go on, Lt. Scott (Brian J. Smith) decides to go it alone and orders Sergeant Greer (Jamil Walker Smith) to return to safety with the exhausted scientist. Meanwhile, with life on the ship looking bleak, and with the aid of the communication stones, Colonel Young (Louis Ferreira) reports in to General O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) and Chloe (Elyse Levesque) has one last chance to see her mother. Air: Part 2 airs Friday night, October 9th @ 9 p.m. EST on The Syfy Channel.
