Description

During an attack on the Tau'ri outpost of Icarus Base by the Lucian Alliance, in 2009, the base personnel manage to dial a ninth chevron Stargate address, which had been the ultimate purpose that Icarus Base was constructed for. Forced to evacuate and, with no where else to go, the evacuees emerged through the Stargate on an unmanned spaceship called Destiny. The Destiny was launched by the Ancients at the height of their civilization, several million years ago, as a grand experiment set in motion to explore the universe, which was never completed. This group of evacuees discovered that the ship was unable to return them to Earth. The suvivors aboard the Destiny, have been classified as marooned aboard the ship, somewhere in uncharted deep space. This report has been filed under Top Secret.

In 2010, Stargate Command secretly chartered an outline for rescue mission - to locate the Destiny and the survivors, and bring them home. With continued long-range interaction from a select few of the Destiny's survivors (thanks to a set of Ancient communication-stones) Stargate Command has been able to locate the Destiny in uncharted deep space, her coordinates ever-changing. In mid 2010, with the help of the advanced race of beings, known as the Asgard, a powerful ship was built and commissioned for the rescue mission.

The mission was announced, to top Stargate personnel and the President and Joint Chiefs, in early 2011. The ship, which they named Horizon, was outfitted with two-years worth of supplies, including a large hydroponics-bay, in order to be sustainable, should problems arrise during the voyage. A crew, manned by the brightest and the best, including Air Force military personnel, from Stargate Command, for operation, security, and stability of the mission, and top scientists, engineers, and personnel from the private sector. All personnel have been brought up to speed on the Top Secret nature of the Mission, including the threats made by the Ori and their interest in Destiny as well.

In mid-2011 the Horizon was launched.
