"There should be an elevator directly ahead."
Nicholas Rush[src]

The Ancient spaceship Destiny has numerous elevators which can rapidly transport people to other sections of the ship.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The elevator is large enough to fit a small group of people. There is a control panel on the wall which allows the user to select a destination. The elevator then transports the riders to the selected destination. It can move horizontally as well as vertically, and at least some can reach right from the stern of the ship to the bow. Since the available living area is rather small, the crew does not make use of the elevators regularly, and did not even know of their horizontal function until Eli Wallace pressed buttons at random. As they are linked to Destiny's control system, they can be deactivated from the Control interface room. (SGU: "Incursion, Part 1")

History[edit | edit source]

The control panel for an elevator

After the expedition first arrived aboard Destiny, the ship was explored by Lieutenant Matthew Scott. Led by Dr. Nicholas Rush via radio, he found a lift but was distracted by a passing Kino as he was about to press the control panel. (SGU: "Air, Part 2")

Eli Wallace and Chloe Armstrong used the elevator to escape from Lucian Alliance forces when they boarded Destiny. They ended up near the bow of the ship when Eli randomly entered a code into the control panel. They were unable to return, since the elevators were locked down shortly thereafter. (SGU: "Incursion, Part 1")

Rush would later use an elevator to reach the top floor of Destiny's living area, where the bridge resides. (SGU: "Aftermath")
