"Common Descent"

"Our people came here as part of an expedition. One of several to find a viable world"

The Novus colony was a planet once visited by the Destiny expedition. There they met descendants of their alternate selves, who had traveled through the gate and were presumed dead, but actually traveled two thousands years back in time.

These people were originally from the planet Novus, which was becoming dangerous to inhabit and sent people through the gate in order to establish colonies on nearby planets. However, the gate on Novus became inaccessible and not having another gate within range the expedition became stranded for thirty years.

After they were discover by the Destiny Expedition, the colonist helped supply the Destiny with vegetable goods, though in return they asked to the Destiny crew to trasport them back to their home planet. At first, Destiny crew was unsure to allowing the request, considering the strain that would mean, to their supplies, but after the Drones attack the colony, in search of Destiny, the crew accepted their request.
