Here are a list of characters appearing in SG-20.

Vice Admiral Harmon “Harm” Rabb, Jr., USN Edit

Main article: Harmon Rabb (SG-20)

Matilda Grace “Mattie” Rabb Edit

Johnson, mattie

Former owner and operator of Grace Avionics in Blacksburg, Virginia, Mattie Johnson ran the place single-handedly after her mother’s death and her father taking off.  Unfortunately, by 2003, Grace Avionics was on its last legs, and she was in danger of being found out by Child Protective Services and the Better Business Bureau.  Fortune smiled on Mattie, however, when she hired the recently-fired CIA pilot Harmon Rabb as a crop-duster.  He immediately took a paternal interest in her, and upon his reinstatement to the Navy and attachment to the SGC in Colorado, Harm offered to take Mattie in as a ward.  Together, they sold Grace Avionics and put the money into a trust for Mattie to use.

In Colorado Springs, Mattie quickly developed a sister-like friendship with Harm’s legalman, Jennifer Coates, and together they share an apartment across the hall from Harm.  It took her a while to get back to being a kid again (after acting on her own for nearly a year), but she got the hang of it relatively fast.

In 2007, after graduating from Cheyenne Mountain High School (alma mater for many children of SGC personnel), Mattie began attending Stanford University, majoring in Aeronautical Engineering.  She also has a civilian pilot’s license, which she got not long after meeting Harm.  After graduating from Stanford in 2011, Mattie began to rebuild her mother’s company, Grace Avionics; she also volunteered to serve in the Civil Air Patrol.

At the age of 18, Mattie officially changed her name from Johnson to Rabb with Harm’s blessing.

Chief Legalman Jennifer “Jen” Coates, USN Edit

Coates, jennifer

Captain Harmon Rabb’s personal legalman, Legalman 2nd Class Jen Coates was transferred from JAG Headquarters to Stargate Command at Harm’s request.  Originally not told why (or where) she was being transferred, but once she got there and was read in on the Stargate Program, she was more than happy to contribute in any way she could.  She serves alongside Air Force Sergeant Jenny Pierce as one of the SGC’s enlisted legal specialists under Col. Richardson and later Lt. Col. Sullivan.  In addition, Coates has occasionally dusted off her old Electronics Technician skills and pulled shifts in the SGC Control Room under the watchful eyes of CMSgt. Walter Harriman, the SGC’s senior enlisted man.

She was promoted to Petty Officer 1st Class in 2004, and was made an honorary member of SG-20 upon its formation and has infrequently accompanied them out into the field.

Already familiar with Harm from their time together at JAG, she and the Commander (later Captain) quickly developed a familial bond, and she became roommates and a big sister to Harm’s ward, Mattie Johnson-Rabb.  While serving at the SGC, Jen earned a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice online from the Colorado Technical University.

A native of Hagerstown, Maryland, Jen’s mom died when she was 10 years old.  Her father was the local preacher, who was frequently verbally and sometimes physically abusive to her.  When puberty hit at age 14, Jen suddenly became very popular with the Hagerstown boys and shortly thereafter became a juvenile delinquent (which exacerbated Rev. Coates’ abuse).  In 1999, at the age of 19, Jen was arrested and given a choice between jail or the Navy – she chose to enlist.  Around Christmas 2001, then-Electronics Technician 3rd Class Coates went UA from the U.S.S. Gainsville and subsequently spent 30 days in the brig.  After being released, Jen underwent retraining as a Legalman at the Naval Justice School and assigned to the U.S.S. Seahawk for a year before joining the enlisted staff at JAG Headquarters.

Coates was promoted to Chief Petty Officer in 2009 and transferred out of the SGC after six years.  She continues to serve as legalman to Harm, who was appointed Staff Judge Advocate, Homeworld Security.  In 2013, when Harm was promoted to Vice Admiral and made the Superintendent of the Naval Academy, Jen returned to the fleet as Chief Legalman, RLSO Europe, Africa and Southwest Asia Detachment Rota. There, she is the senior-most enlisted woman, responsible for overseeing all of the RLSO’s legalmen, as well as assisting the JAG officers with various paralegal activities.

Chief Coates is a graduate of Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, IL, Apprentice Technical Training, Electronics Technician “A” School, Legalman “A” School at the Naval Justice School, and the Colorado Technical University.  She is a recipient of the Enlisted Surface Warfare Badge, two Joint Service Achievement Medals, the Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medal, Joint Meritorious Unit Award, Meritorious Unit Commendation, four Navy Good Conduct Medals, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, Navy Rifle Marksmanship Medal, and Navy Pistol Marksmanship Medal.  When she transferred out of Homeworld Command with Harm, he presented her with her third Joint Service Achievement Medal.  In 2014, Chief Coates became authorized to wear the gold rate insignia on her Dress Blue, Dinner Dress Blue and Dinner Dress Blue/White Jacket uniforms for twelve consecutive years of good conduct.

Master Gunnery Sergeant Victor Galindez, USMC (Ret.) Edit

Galindez, victor

The 2nd-in-Command of SG-20, Master Gunnery Sergeant Victor Galindez (often called Top around the base) is a former Deputy Sheriff with over 20 years in the Marine Corps.  In addition to his duties on SG-20, MGySgt. Galindez takes shifts as a Senior NCO on guard duty for the SGC Gate Room.

Prior to his transfer to the SGC, he served with Capt. Rabb at US Navy JAG Headquarters from 1999 until 2001, when he transferred to a combat unit to serve in Afghanistan in the aftermath of 9/11.  After four years in county (with both the Marines and the CIA), then-Master Sergeant Galindez was recruited to Stargate Command, and upon the formation of SG-20, he was promoted to Master Gunnery Sergeant.

MGySgt. Galindez has cultivated strong ties to the SGC’s enlisted personnel, and has become close friends with CMSgt. Walter Harriman, the SGC’s SNCO, despite their service rivalry.

When SG-20 was disbanded in 2009 after Harm was promoted to Rear Admiral, MGySgt. Galindez retired from the Marine Corps and took a job in the private sector. For his twenty-plus years of service (and for his exemplary work at the SGC), MGySgt. Galindez received the Navy Distinguished Service Medal at his retirement ceremony.

MGySgt. Galindez is a highly respected and highly decorated senior staff non-commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps.  He carries a Beretta M9 as his sidearm.  He is a recipient of the Navy Distinguished Service Medal, Bronze Star (with Valor), Purple Heart, Meritorious Service Medal, two Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medals, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards.  He is also a two-time recipient of both the Marine Corps Rifle and Pistol Expert Qualification Badges.

Chief Special Warfare Officer Jason “Coop” Cooper, US Navy SEALs Edit

A Navy SEAL, Petty Officer Jason Cooper enlisted in the Navy at the age of 19, and spent the first six years of his career in various training bases.  By 2001, 25-year-old Jason Cooper held the rank of Petty Officer 3rd Class and was assigned to SEAL Team 7 under the command of Lt. Curtis Rivers as a hospital corpsman.  He served with the SEALs with distinction, and by 2005, Coop was promoted to Petty Officer 1st Class.

When the Navy “asked” Stargate Command to create a Navy-Marine Corps SG-team, Petty Officer Cooper was one of the first to volunteer for a position.  Ultimately, he joined the four-man team SG-20 under the command of Capt. Harmon Rabb, along with MGySgt. Victor Galindez and Cryptologic Technician 2nd Class Tara Reed.

Cooper was promoted to Chief Petty Officer in 2009 and was reassigned following the disbanding of SG-20 after Harm was promoted to Rear Admiral. He found a place with SEAL Team 2 out of Little Creek, Virginia, as a Platoon Chief. For his service at the SGC, Chief Cooper received the Defense Meritorious Service Medal.

Chief Cooper is a decorated sailor, having spent four years on a SEAL Team before joining the SGC. He carries a SIG-Sauer P226 Navy as his sidearm.

With the help of her team (all of whom became like brothers to her), Tara became a competent field agent, although she unequivocally prefers translating foreign languages and exploring new planets to combat.

Tara was promoted to Petty Officer 1st Class in 2009 and was reassigned following the disbanding of SG-20 after Harm was promoted to Rear Admiral.  She was transferred to the U.S.S. John Paul Jones (DDG-53), an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, as a Leading Petty Officer in the cryptology department. For her service at the SGC, CT1 Reed received the Defense Meritorious Service Medal.

CT1 Reed, like the rest of her team, carries a Beretta M9 as her sidearm. She has a Bachelor’s degree in American literature. She is a recipient of the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medal, Navy Unit Commendation, Joint Meritorious Unit Award, Meritorious Unit Commendation, three Navy Good Conduct Medals, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and Sea Service Deployment Ribbon.

Brigadier General Donald James “Don” Richardson, JAGC, USAF Edit

The Staff Judge Advocate of Stargate Command during its first seven years, then-Colonel Don Richardson became Earth’s first expert on interstellar law.  He worked closely with Dr. Daniel Jackson and the SGC’s diplomatic teams, and supervised his two-man legal department.

In 2004, Col. Richardson was promoted to Brigadier General (at the same time as his colleague, Jack O’Neill), and transferred from the SGC to the newly-created Homeworld Security, and was succeeded by Lt. Col. Pat Sullivan.  He was mandatorily retired from the Air Force in 2009 after five years as SJA, Homeworld Security, but was subsequently hired the International Oversight Advisory as a senior legal advisor.  He was replaced as SJA by Rear Admiral Harmon Rabb.

Prior to his service at the SGC, Brig. Gen. Richardson served as a JAG Officer at Air Force Space Command.  His very first assignment as a Captain in the Air Force was in 1986 as a junior judge advocate with the Fifth Air Force out of Yakota Air Force Base in Japan.  He has also spent time as a JAG Officer at Los Angeles AFB, Lackland AFB, and Shaw AFB, the latter during Operation Desert Storm.

As a one-star officer in the United States Air Force, Brig. Gen. Richardson carries a Beretta M9 in 9x19mm as his personal sidearm (although he's proudly never had cause to use it outside of the shooting range).  He is a graduate of Stanford Law School, Air Force Officer Training School, the Judge Advocate General’s Legal Center and School (where he earned an LL.B. in Military Law), and has completed the Capstone Military Leadership Program in 2004.  He is a recipient of the Air Force Distinguished Service Medal, two Legions of Merit, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, four Meritorious Service Medals, three Air Force Commendation Medals, three Air Force Achievement Medals, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards, along with the JAG Badge.  He was awarded his second Air Force Distinguished Service Medal upon his retirement in 2009.

Colonel Patrick Michael “Pat” Sullivan, JAGC, USAF Edit

Don Richardson’s successor as Staff Judge Advocate of Stargate Command, Lt. Col. Pat Sullivan ascended to the position after Col. Richardson was promoted to Brigadier General.  He was promoted to Colonel in 2007 at the same time as SG-1’s Cameron Mitchell and Samantha Carter.

Col. Sullivan has a history with Capt. Harmon Rabb of SG-20 – the two attended Georgetown University Law Center together.

Col. Sullivan is a recipient of the Meritorious Service Medal, two Air Force Commendation Medals, three Air Force Achievement Medals, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards, along with the JAG Badge.

Master Sergeant Jennifer “Jenny” Pierce, USAF Edit

The Legal Assistant to the Staff Judge Advocate of Stargate Command, Staff Sergeant Jenny Pierce worked for Col. Don Richardson as his assistant for nearly seven years.  She was promoted to Technical Sergeant in 1999 and then Master Sergeant in 2004 upon the promotion of Col. Richardson to Brigadier General, and reassigned to Lt. Col. Pat Sullivan, the new SJA.  She works alongside Capt. Rabb’s personal legalman, Jennifer Coates, who he had transferred from JAG Headquarters to the SGC.

Then-TSgt. Pierce became a target of gossip at the SGC in 2002 when she spent a night with Jonas Quinn of SG-1.  She found herself labeled “alien-bait”, although such talk was cut down shortly after the senior members of the SGC heard about it.

MSgt. Pierce is a recipient of the Air Force Achievement Medal, Joint Meritorious Unit Award, Organizational Excellence Award, National Defense Service Medal, Air Force Longevity Service Award, and Air Force Training Ribbon, along with the Paralegal Badge.

Lieutenant General George S. Hammond, USAF (Ret.) (d. 2008) Edit

Hammond, george

Former Commanding Officer of Stargate Command, Maj. Gen. George S. Hammond was promoted to Lieutenant General and assigned to the newly-formed Department of Homeworld Security in 2004 after Anubis’s attack on Earth (during which he personally commanded the Earth Ship Prometheus). 

A career military officer who saw action in both Vietnam and the Persian Gulf, Gen. Hammond was a recipient of two Legions of Merit, the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, five Meritorious Service Medals, nine Air Medals, the Joint Service Commendation Medal, four Air Force Commendation Medals, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards.  Upon his retirement in 2005, he was awarded the Defense Distinguished Service Medal, the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard Distinguished Service Medal, and the Defense Superior Service Medal.

Gen. Hammond died of a heart attack in 2008.  He was given a military funeral with full honors at Arlington National Cemetery.  He was survived by his two granddaughters, Kayla and Tessa.  The U.S.S. Phoenix, Earth’s 6th Daedalus-class battleship, was renamed the George Hammond in his honor.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir, Ph.D. (MIA, 2007) (Ascended, 2008) Edit

Weir, elizabeth

The temporary commander of Stargate Command, Dr. Weir is an experienced diplomat and professor of international relations at Georgetown University.  She was tapped by President Hayes to take over the SGC from General Hammond due to political pressure to put a civilian in charge instead of a military two-star general, even one with an impeccable record like Hammond’s.

As head of the SGC, Dr. Weir was in command when Anubis attacked Earth, and in the aftermath of the discovery of the Antarctic outpost.  Her closest advisors were Senior Master Sergeant Walter Harriman and Dr. Daniel Jackson of SG-1. 

Dr. Weir’s command of the SGC lasted three months, before she was assigned to lead the Atlantis Expedition.  She was succeeded at the SGC by Brigadier General Jack O’Neill.

After 3 years as Commander of the Atlantis Expedition, Dr. Weir was captured during a mission and declared Missing in Action.  She was later found alive in a Replicator body, and after walking through a space gate, she Ascended to a higher plane of existence.

Lieutenant General Jonathan J. “Jack” O’Neill, USAF (Ret.) Edit

Main article: Jack O'Neill (Stargate Continued)

Major General Henry “Hank” Landry, USAF (Ret.) Edit

Landry, hank

A friend of Gen. Jack O’Neill from his pre-SGC days, Maj. Gen. Hank Landry served as Commanding Officer of Stargate Command from 2005 until he was forced to take mandatory retirement in 2011, a few months before his 66th birthday.

A career military officer with 40 years of service, Maj. Gen. Landry was a recipient of two Defense Superior Service Medals, two Legions of Merit, Distinguished Flying Cross, two Defense Meritorious Service Medals, two Joint Service Commendation Medals, Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Force Achievement Medal, Air Force Recognition Ribbon, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards.  Upon his retirement in 2011, he was awarded the Defense Distinguished Service Medal, the Air Force Distinguished Service Medal, and his third Defense Superior Service Medal.

Brigadier General Cameron John “Cam” Mitchell, USAF (Ret.) Edit

Mitchell, cameron

The former Commanding Officer of SG-1, Cam Mitchell took the promotion to Brigadier General and the post of Commanding Officer of Stargate Command in early 2011, when the previous commander, Maj. Gen. Hank Landry, took mandatory retirement a few months before his 66th birthday.  Although the first choice for the position was Col. Samantha Carter, she declined in order to remain Captain of the U.S.S. George Hammond, and instead the position went to the equally-qualified SG-1 team leader.

With Cam’s promotion came the unofficial disbandment of SG-1 (again).  Lt. Gen. Jack O’Neill was still at the Pentagon serving as Commander of Homeworld Security, with CMSgt. Walter Harriman as his Senior Enlisted Advisor and Lt. Col. Paul Davis as his Chief of Staff.  Col. Carter commanded the Hammond, while Dr. Daniel Jackson, himself five years Cam’s senior who had been with the SGC since the first mission to Abydos in 1994, had taken the same semi-retirement that Cam did, working behind a desk out of the SGC, Homeworld Security, or anywhere else he was needed instead of out in the field.  Of SG-1’s two alien members, Teal’c now serves as the Ambassador between the Free Jaffa Nation and Earth and its interstellar allies, while Vala Mal Doran became Earth’s first interstellar cargo shipmaster.

Cam was grateful for the promotion, as his multiple injuries from his 19 years in the Air Force and especially the ones he received while on SG-1 were about to take him out of the field anyways; this way, he remained in the Air Force and with the SGC (and with a bigger paycheck and better parking spot, too!), able to keep an eye on his friends and colleagues.  However, Cam was made tacitly aware that, due to his injuries, command of the SGC would be his terminal assignment.

As Commander of the SGC, Cam is considered by his subordinates to be an excellent commanding officer, having found a unique balance between military professionalism and letting his people do the jobs that they do best no matter what rank or position they hold – a skill he picked up during his years on SG-1.  He has had occasion to journey through the Stargate since being promoted, usually to one of the SGC’s off-world bases or diplomatic functions with allies of the Tau’ri, and he makes the most of those visits.

As 2013 came to a close, Cam officially announced his retirement from the Air Force, and his final day in uniform was Friday, March 28, 2014.  His successor is Major General Steven Caldwell, who was promoted from Commodore of the Tau’ri Space Fleet.

As a one-star officer in the United States Air Force, Cam carries a Beretta M9 in 9x19mm as his personal sidearm.  He has a Master’s degree in mechanical engineering, is a graduate of Squadron Officer School, has completed the Capstone Military Leadership Program, and is a distinguished combat pilot, qualified to fly the F-15 Eagle, the F-16 Fighting Falcon, and the SGC’s F-302s and various space battleships.  He is a recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross, Purple Heart, Meritorious Service Medal, Air Medal, Aerial Achievement Medal, Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Force Achievement Medal, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards.  He is also a recipient of the Medal of Honor, albeit for classified operations with Stargate Command, and he doesn’t wear the Medal in public. Upon his retirement from the Air Force, Cam was awarded the Defense Distinguished Service Medal, Air Force Distinguished Service Medal, and Defense Superior Service Medal.

Brigadier General Samantha “Sam” Carter, Ph.D., USAFR Edit

Carter, samantha

Captain of the U.S.S. George S. Hammond, Col. Samantha Carter spent a year as Commanding Officer of the Atlantis Expedition, after serving on SG-1 for over a decade.  As a starship captain, Col. Carter’s immediate superior is Brig. Gen. Steven Caldwell, the Commodore of the Tau’ri Spacefleet.

One of Col. Carter’s goals upon taking command of the Hammond was to make it not just a warship, but also a scientific vessel to study various stellar phenomena, including planets, moons, nebulas, stars, and more.  With the permission of both Lt. Gen. O’Neill and Brig. Gen. Caldwell, her request was granted, but with the understanding that planetary, interstellar, and intergalactic defense comes before any and all scientific missions.  In her four years as Captain of the Hammond, Col. Carter and her crew accrued more knowledge of Earth’s solar system and its interstellar neighborhood than in the recorded history.

In 2010, Col. Carter and the Hammond took on a distinguished guest, retired US Senator and astronaut John Glenn.  He joined the Hammond on a month-long survey of the solar system, during which time he regaled the crew with stories of his own trips to space.

In 2011, Col. Carter was offered a promotion to Brigadier General and command of the SGC, but she turned it down in order to remain Captain of the Hammond.

In 2012, the President of the United States, fresh off his reelection victory, asked Col. Carter if she’d like to join his staff as the Assistant to the President for Science and Technology and Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.  With the encouragement of both her team and her crew, she accepted the President’s nomination.  On January 20, 2013, Col. Carter received a transfer to the United States Air Force Reserve with the rank of Brigadier General as she started her new civilian career as the President’s Science Advisor.

In 2003, then-Maj. Carter spent the weekend with Harmon Rabb, a Navy Commander who had recently transferred to Stargate Command. Although things were awkward between them for a few weeks, Sam and Harm eventually grew to be close friends.

As a decorated officer of the United States Air Force, Col. Carter carries a Beretta M9 in 9x19mm as her personal sidearm, and owns a motorcycle as her civilian vehicle of choice.  She has a Ph.D. in Astrophysics from Stanford University (after having graduated top of her class at the Air Force Academy with a Bachelor’s degree in Physics), and, because she is the former host to the Tok’ra Jolinar of Malkshur, Col. Carter has enough naquadah in her bloodstream to utilize Goa’uld technology.  Her awards and decorations include the Defense Superior Service Medal (earned during her command of the Atlantis Expedition), Legion of Merit (which she received upon completing her tour as Commander of the Hammond), Airman’s Medal, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Meritorious Service Medal, Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Force Achievement Medal, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards.  Since joining the President’s staff, Sam is authorized to wear the Presidential Service Badge on her uniform.

Dr. Daniel Jackson, Ph.D. Edit

Jackson, daniel

A veteran of Stargate Command since the first mission to Abydos in 1994, Dr. Daniel Jackson spent three years living on Abydos with his wife, Sha’re and her family before she was taken by the Goa’uld and he returned to Earth.  He is the Head of Archaeology & Linguistics, and is the de facto Senior Civilian of the SGC.

In 2011, upon Cam Mitchell’s promotion to Brigadier General and Commander of the SGC and the unofficial disbandment of SG-1, Daniel officially took himself out of the field, and now works behind a desk out of the SGC, Homeworld Security, or anywhere else he was needed.

As a civilian employee of the United States Air Force, Daniel carries a Beretta M9 in 9x19mm as his personal sidearm.  He is a graduate of Northwestern University, and has Ph.D.s in Archaeology, Anthropology, and Philology.  He is a recipient of the Department of the Air Force Decoration for Exceptional Civilian Service, Civilian Award for Valor, Meritorious Civilian Service Award, and the Armed Forces Civilian Service Medal.  He is also a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, albeit for classified operations with Stargate Command, and he doesn’t wear the Medal in public.

Ambassador Teal’c Edit

Teal'c

The Ambassador between the Free Jaffa Nation and Earth and its interstellar allies, Jaffa Master Teal’c, age 163 (thanks to fifty years of time dilation), has been with Stargate Command and SG-1 since his defection from Apophis in 1997.  After helping his people obtain their freedom from the Goa’uld, Teal’c became a major player in the Free Jaffa Nation, although many Jaffa believed him merely to be a spokesperson for the Tau’ri.

In 2011, upon Cam Mitchell’s promotion to Brigadier General and Commander of the SGC and the unofficial disbandment of SG-1, Teal’c was appointed Jaffa Ambassador to Earth and its interstellar allies.

In 2003, Teal’c was made an honorary Air Force Chief Master Sergeant by the enlisted personnel of Stargate Command.

As the former First Prime of Apophis, Teal’c continues to carry both a Jaffa Staff Weapon and a zat’nik’tel (zat gun) as his personal weapons.  While on Earth or operating with an SG-team, Teal’c uses a Beretta M9 in 9x19mm, or an FN-P90 in 5.7x28mm submachine gun.

Professor Jonas Quinn Edit

Quinn, jonas

Member of SG-1 for a year, Jonas Quinn became the first Kelownan Representative to the Langaran Joint Ruling Council upon its establishment in 2003.

When the Ori invaded Langara, Jonas led the Langaran resistance movement.  After the Ori were defeated in 2007, Jonas retired from public service, taking a position at the University of Kelowna as a Professor of World History.  He also married his longtime girlfriend, Kianna Cyr.

Because of his actions during the Ori Invasion, Jonas was given the military rank of Commander in the Kelownan, Tiranian, and Andari militaries (the only person on Langara to hold a rank in all three countries).

Captain Vala Mal Doran Edit

Mal doran, vala

Master and commander of Earth’s first interstellar cargo vessel, the E.C.S. Achilles, Vala Mal Doran proved herself time and again as a member of SG-1.  So, in 2009, when Earth began to modify a Goa’uld-made cargo ship in order to do business with the various space-faring races of the Milky Way Galaxy, Vala, as a non-Earth human who was previously a host to a Goa’uld, was an ideal choice to captain such a vessel.  It was officially launched on January 2, 2010, with a complement of experienced seamen and mariners selected by the SGC and Homeworld Security making up her crew.

Vala greatly enjoys her position, and proudly carries the title of Captain (nominally attached to the United States Merchant Marines), although she wasn’t particularly fond of the lengthy process it took to get her Master Mariner’s license (despite the drastic cut in the program for her special case).

As a civilian employee of the United States Air Force, Vala carries a Beretta M9 in 9x19mm as her personal sidearm while on Earth or operating with an SG-team.  As the former host to the Goa’uld Qetesh, Vala also has her own zat’nik’tel (zat gun) and has enough naquadah in her bloodstream to utilize Goa’uld technology, including a kara kesh (ribbon device) and a healing device.

Chief Master Sergeant Walter Harriman, USAF (Ret.) Edit

Harriman, walter

Having served as the Primary Gate Technician of Stargate Command since 1997, Chief Master Sergeant Walter Harriman found himself as one of the most indispensable members of the SGC.  He was promoted to Senior Master Sergeant in 2004 after the Battle of Antarctica, serving as the primary aide to the new civilian commander of the SGC, Dr. Elizabeth Weir, a position he held for both of her successors, Brig. Gen. Jack O’Neill and Maj. Gen. Hank Landry, as well.  He was promoted to Chief Master Sergeant and appointed the Senior Non-Commissioned Officer of Stargate Command in 2005.  He is close friends with fellow enlisted airman, CMSgt. Sylvester Siler, the SGC’s senior enlisted technician.

Prior to his position at the SGC, he served with the late Lt. Gen. (Ret.) George Hammond in the first Gulf War, excelling in installing, maintaining and repairing bomb navigation, weapons control as well as automatic flight control operations.  Gen. Hammond recruited him to the SGC in 1997 (then, Walter was two years away from his 20-year retirement) as someone with excellent technical ability and a cool head to operate the Stargate under extreme pressure.  Walter has also served on the U.S.S. Prometheus, manning the communications, navigation, sensors, shields, and weapons during the Battle of Antarctica and the failed expedition to Atlantis. 

In 2009, CMSgt. Harriman announced his retirement from the United States Air Force, and he officially left the service at the beginning of 2010.

A career enlisted airman with over 30 years of service, CMSgt. Harriman has a degree in Electronics and Telecommunications from the Air Force Community College, and has graduated from the Air Force’s prestigious Senior Noncommissioned Officer Academy.  He is a recipient of the Air Force Distinguished Service Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Force Achievement Medal, 10 Air Force Good Conduct Medals, Outstanding Airman of the Year Ribbon, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards. He was awarded his second Air Force Distinguished Service Medal at his retirement ceremony by Lt. Gen. O’Neill. 

Major (Dr.) Janet Fraiser, M.D., USAF (KIA, 2004) Edit

Chief Medical Officer of Stargate Command, Dr. Janet Fraiser was one of the SGC’s most valued officers and one of Col. Sam Carter’s closest friends.

In 1998, Dr. Fraiser adopted Cassandra, an orphaned girl from the planet Hanka, after her planet’s population was wiped out by the Goa’uld Nirrti.

Tragically, Dr. Fraiser was killed in action on February 18, 2004, during a rescue mission on P3X-666. She died saving the life of Senior Airman Simon Wells, and was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor.

 Command Sergeant Major Jonas David Blane, US Army Special Forces Edit

Blane, jonas
The Non-Commissioned Officer-in-Charge of the 1st Special Actions Group (officially the “303rd Logistical Studies Group”) Alpha Team, Sgt. Maj. Jonas Blane is a highly-trained, highly-decorated soldier with more than 20 years in the US Special Forces.  He enlisted in the Army in 1979 after graduating from high school, and was first assigned as a Logistics Specialist attached to the 173rd Airborne Brigade.  After his assignment was complete, Jonas requested to try out for Special Forces, and became one of the Army’s top special warfare operatives.  Prior to joining the Unit, Jonas served in both the Army Rangers and the Green Berets, including a tour of duty as an instructor at Ranger School.

He is married to Molly Blane, his wife of 25+ years, and they have one daughter, Betsy, who’s now an officer in the Army.  His best friend is Sgt. Maj. Ron Cheals, a former member/his predecessor as NCOIC of the Unit who was crippled during a mission and forced into retirement.  He is also friends with his teammates (who treat him like a big brother) and his Commanding Officer, Tom Ryan, although their friendship was irrevocably strained after the Unit’s long-term operation to dismantle a terrorist cell during which Ryan authorized criminal and morally reprehensible actions to bring them down.

In the aftermath of the Unit’s long-term operation to dismantle a terrorist cell, Jonas transferred out of the Unit (which also saved his marriage) to serve as the Command Senior Enlisted Advisor, Homeworld Security under legendary Special Operations officer Lt. Gen. Jack O’Neill.  The position came with a promotion to Command Sergeant Major.

Jonas’s transfer brought many changes to the Unit.  For their actions in dismantling the terrorist cell, both Charles Grey and Bob Brown received promotions to Master Sergeant and First Sergeant, respectively, while the Unit’s only female operator, Warrant Officer Bridget Sullivan, who like Jonas could not and would not continue to serve at Fort Griffith, joined him at Homeworld Command.  The Unit itself was placed under the command of Col. James Tisnewski, a Special Forces operative whose previous assignment was with the Special Operations Division at the Pentagon, with newly-promoted Bob Brown named the leader of Alpha Team (despite Mack Gerhardt’s seniority).  The Unit’s longtime CO, Col. Ryan, was given a promotion to Brigadier General and assigned to US Army Alaska as its Commanding General.

As a highly-decorated senior NCO in the United States Army, Jonas carries a Kimber Warrior in .45 ACP as his personal sidearm, with a Smith & Wesson .380 pocket pistol as his off-duty weapon and drives a GMC Sierra pickup truck.  He is a graduate of Airborne School, Air Assault School, Jumpmaster School, Pathfinder School, Mountain Warfare School, Sniper School, the Warrior Leader Course, Ranger School, the Special Forces Qualification Course, and the Sergeant Major Academy.  He is competent in Arabic, French, German, Persian, Portuguese, and Spanish.  He is a recipient of the Distinguished Service Cross (the second-highest award in the United States Army for extraordinary heroism behind the Medal of Honor), Defense Distinguished Service Medal, Distinguished Service Medal, Defense Superior Service Medal, two Legions of Merit, two Bronze Stars (with Valor), seven Purple Hearts, two Meritorious Service Medals, two Joint Service Commendation Medals (with Valor), three Army Commendation Medals (with Valor), and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards.

Brigadier General Sarah “Mac” MacKenzie, USMC Edit

Mackenzie, sarah

Harm’s former partner at JAG, Lt. Col. Sarah MacKenzie remained in Washington, D.C. as a member of JAG Headquarters when Harm transferred to Stargate Command.

In 2005, Mac was promoted to Colonel, and transferred to San Diego to start up the Joint Legal Services Center, Southwest.  In 2008, after three years in San Diego, Mac applied for the position of Chief of Staff of the 3rd Marine Division in Okinawa, which would put her on the fast track for promotion to Brigadier General.

Upon hearing that Harm had been promoted to Rear Admiral and assigned to the Pentagon in 2009, Mac was shocked, but ultimately happy for her old friend with whom she had fallen out of contact.

In 2010, Mac got her first star and was appointed Assistant Division Commander, 2nd Marine Division, out of Camp Lejune, North Carolina.

A Marine officer, Mac has a B.A. in Political science from the University of Minnesota and a law degree from Duke University, and became a JAG officer in 1995. She carries a Beretta M9 as her sidearm, and drives a government sedan on duty and a red Corvette off-duty. Her awards and decorations include the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medal, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards. She is also a two-time recipient of both the Marine Corps Rifle and Pistol Expert Qualification Badges.

Judge Bud J. Roberts, Jr., US District Court Edit

Roberts, bud

Having come a long way from his rookie days, Lt. Cmdr. Bud Roberts is one of JAG Headquarters’ most successful attorneys who really came into his own after Cmdr. Rabb resigned his commission in 2003.

In 2006, almost a year after Col. Sarah MacKenzie and Capt. Sturgis Turner transferred from JAG Headquarters, Bud was chosen to infiltrate a group of medically-discharged Special Forces operatives who were believed to be running a vigilante group. He went in as a SEAL who’d “retired” after losing his leg in Afghanistan, and was successful in convincing the group to disband. During that mission, Bud shot and killed a criminal during a firefight for the first time in his life. His actions, including saving the life of the group’s second-in-command who’d been shot, earned him the Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medal, with Valor, for “distinguishing himself by heroism in combat”. After his undercover assignment, Bud was nominated by Maj. Gen. Gordon Cresswell, the JAG, for a position with the Trial Judiciary and with that, a promotion to Commander. While on the bench, his Legalman was Petty Officer 3rd Class Melissa Young, USN.

In 2009, Bud was reassigned from Headquarters to the Region Legal Services Office Europe, Africa, and Southwest Asia at Naval Support Activity Naples to serve as the RLSO’s Chief Trial Judge. He and his family served in Italy for a year, before returning to Washington. Upon his return, he and Harriet rekindled their close friendship with now-RDML Harmon Rabb, a senior legal advisor at the Pentagon.

In 2012, after 18 years in the Navy, Bud was nominated to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia as a District Judge by the President on the recommendation of the Judge Advocate General (and his two predecessors) and the US Senators from Virginia. He was confirmed by the Senate, and was appointed to the bench upon his retirement from the naval service on January 2, 2013.

Bud is married to Lt. Cmdr. Harriet Sims, USNR, and they have five children: A.J., Sarah (who died in childbirth), Jimmy, Nicole, and Adam Roberts. His father, “Big Bud” Roberts, is a retired Master Chief who passed away in 2008, and his younger brother, Mike, is a surface warfare officer. He and Harriet own a Ford Expedition, which serves as the family car. As an officer with the US Navy’s JAG Corps, Bud has received numerous awards, including the Purple Heart, the Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medal with Valor, two Navy Unit Commendations, the National Defense Service Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, two Sea Service Deployment Ribbons, and the Navy & Marine Corps Overseas Service Ribbon. Upon his retirement, Bud was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal.

Lieutenant Commander Harriet Beaumont Sims-Roberts, USNR Edit

Sims, harriet

Bud’s wife, Lt. Harriet Sims previously served as the de facto office manager of JAG Headquarters before transferring to the Individual Ready Reserve in order to take care of her family.  After nearly two years on inactive duty, Harriet returned to the Navy as a Reservist and was subsequently promoted to Lieutenant Commander.

In 2009, Bud was transferred to the Naval Support Activity Naples; Harriet and the family joined him.  While in Naples, Harriet served as a Reservist at NSA Naples.

Harriet is married to Cmdr. Bud Roberts, and they have five children: A.J., Sarah (who died in childbirth), Jimmy, Nicole, and Adam Roberts.  They own a Ford Expedition, which serves as the family car.   As an officer with the US Navy Reserve, Harriet has received numerous awards, including the Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medal, Navy Unit Commendation, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and Sea Service Deployment Ribbon.

Captain Sturgis Turner, JAGC, USN (Ret.) Edit

Turner, sturgis

One of Harm’s roommates from the Naval Academy, the two went their separate ways after graduating in 1985 – Harm to flight school while Sturgis joined the submarine service.  The two met up again in 2001 at JAG Headquarters and rekindled their friendship.  They remained friends and colleagues until Harm resigned his commission in 2003 and later dropped out of sight upon joining the SGC.  He is a perfectionist and a stickler for the rules to the point where he is considered sanctimonious and priggish.

The son of Navy Chaplain Matthew Turner, Sturgis became a submariner, serving as a Sonar Officer.  Unfortunately, an incident arose that prevented him from returning to duty on a sub; he subsequently became a JAG lawyer after completing law school and the Naval Justice School.  Prior to serving at JAG Headquarters, Sturgis served as Staff Judge Advocate for COMSUBPAC.  In 2004, Sturgis was made acting JAG between the retirement of Admiral Chegwidden and the appointment of General Cresswell. 

In 2005, Sturgis was promoted to Captain and made Command Judge Advocate, Navy Reserve Forces Command, a move that necessitated his transition from active duty to the Navy Reserve.  In 2008, Sturgis was considered for promotion to flag rank, but retired with full honors and benefits after not making the cut.

As an officer in the United States Navy, Sturgis is a recipient of the Submarine Officer Badge, and his awards and decorations include the Bronze Star, two Meritorious Service Medals, Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medal, two Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medals, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards.

Rear Admiral Albert Jethro “A.J.” Roberts, JAGC, USN (Ret.) Edit

Chegwidden, aj

The former Judge Advocate General of the United States Navy, A.J. Chegwidden moved to the private sector after his retirement from the Navy and is considered one of the top-notch attorneys in Washington, D.C.

A former Navy SEAL, R-Adm. Chegwidden graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1966.  He’s divorced from Marcella, the daughter of the former Mayor of Naples, Italy, with whom he has a daughter, Francesca.  He is a recipient of the Navy Cross, Bronze Star with Valor, Purple Heart, two Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medals, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards.  Upon his retirement from the Navy in 2004, R-Adm. Chegwidden was awarded the Navy Distinguished Service Medal for his 38 years of service.

Lieutenant General Gordon M. Cresswell, JAGC, USMC (Ret.) Edit

Cresswell, gordon

Judge Advocate General of the United States Navy, Lt. Gen. Gordon Cresswell was the first Marine to be appointed JAG. He was promoted from Major General to Lieutenant General in 2008, when the military made the Judge Advocate Generals of the Army, Navy, and Air Force a three-star position.  He was nominated for the position by the President of the United States and was confirmed by the Senate Armed Services Committee in 2004 a few months after the retirement of R-Adm. Chegwidden.

Harm has had sporadic contact with Lt. Gen. Cresswell since his appointment to Judge Advocate General while serving at the SGC.

Like his predecessor, Lt. Gen. Cresswell graduated from the United States Naval Academy, and has served with distinction for over 30 years.  Lt. Gen. Cresswell served as Staff Judge Advocate of the 3rd Marine Division in Okinawa, Fleet Marine Force Atlantic, and the I Marine Expeditionary Force.  He was wounded in action in Iraq in 2003, and subsequently served as Legal Counsel to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs before becoming the Judge Advocate General.  He is a recipient of the Silver Star, Purple Heart, Meritorious Service Medal, three Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medals, two Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medals, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards. Upon his retirement from the naval service, Lt. Gen. Cresswell was awarded the Navy Distinguished Service Medal.

Captain Elizabeth “Skates” Hawkes, USN Edit

Hawkes, elizabeth 'skates'

Harm’s RIO from the U.S.S. Patrick Henry (CVN-74), Cmdr. Elizabeth Hawkes (call sign: Skates) continued to have an exemplary naval career.

In 2002, after three years on the Patrick Henry, Skates was promoted to Lieutenant Commander and invited to attend the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA, where she completed her Master’s degree in Systems engineering.  In 2004, Lt. Cmdr. Hawkes was assigned to VFA-106 for retraining as a Weapon systems officer for the F/A-18 Super Hornet.  She was subsequently assigned to VFA-41 “Black Aces” as a WSO.  After a tour of duty on the U.S.S. Patrick Henry (CVN-74), Skates was promoted to Commander and assigned as Executive Assistant to the Director, Fleet Maintenance, U.S. Pacific Fleet in 2006.

In 2010, Skates was appointed Commanding Officer of the U.S.S. Sacramento (AOE-1), the fast combat support ship attached to the U.S.S. Seahawk carrier strike group.

Despite Harm’s service at the SGC (and later at the Pentagon as part of Homeworld Command), he and Skates have kept in contact with each other, and they make it a habit to spend time together when they’re both in the same place at the same time.

As an officer in the United States Navy, Skates is a recipient of the Naval Flight Officer Badge, and her awards and decorations include the Meritorious Service Medal, Air Medal, two Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medals, Meritorious Unit Commendation, Navy “E” Ribbon, Navy Expeditionary Medal, two National Defense Service Medals, two Kosovo Campaign Medals, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and four Sea Service Deployment Ribbons.  Also, as Captain of a ship in the Navy, she is authorized to wear the prestigious Command-at-Sea insignia.

Captain Curtis Rivers, US Navy SEALs Edit

Rivers, curtis

The first living man to be awarded the Medal of Honor since the Vietnam War, Curtis Rivers enlisted in the Navy and became a SEAL.  After the Gulf War, he attended Officer Candidate School, where he earned his commission.  In 1997, as the platoon officer-in-charge of SEAL Team 7, he rescued an Undersecretary of State from Hezbollah, showing conspicuous gallantry above and beyond the call of duty.  He spent the next three years serving as an instructor at Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL Training, before being promoted to Lieutenant Commander and was made Headquarters Troop Commander of SEAL Team 8 out of Little Creek, VA.

By 2008, Commander Rivers was assigned to the Pentagon as a Special Operations attaché to the Operations Directorate of the Joint Staff.  A year later, when the newly-promoted RDML Harmon Rabb transferred to Homeworld Security at the Pentagon, he convinced Lt. Gen. O’Neill to hire Rivers as Director of Operations (J-3), which came with a promotion to Captain.

As an officer in the United States Navy, Cmdr. Rivers is a recipient of the Special Warfare and Naval Parachutist Badges, and his awards and decorations include the Defense Superior Service Medal, Bronze Star, Meritorious Service Medal, two Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medals, Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medal, numerous unit, campaign, and service awards, and of course, the Medal of Honor.

Congresswoman (D-MI) Roberta “Bobbi” Latham, US House of Representatives Edit

Latham, bobbi

One of Harm’s closest friends on the Hill, Congresswoman Bobbi Latham is the long-term Chairwoman of the House National Security Subcommittee.  As such, she is aware of Stargate Command, although she has no real knowledge of the SGC’s day-to-day operations (as that is under the jurisdiction of the Senate).  She was pleased when Harm returned to Washington, D.C. as a flag officer both professionally and personally, and the two of them have since struck up a casual on- and off-again romantic relationship.

Born and raised on the streets of Detroit, Bobbi graduated from Mumford High School and attended Yale University on scholarship.  After graduating third in her class, she returned to her hometown and began a career in politics that would eventually lead to her representing Detroit as a member of Congress.  She is an ardent supporter of feminism, and is one of the most popular members of the legislative branch.

In addition to her duties as Chairwoman of the House Oversight Subcommittee on National Security, Bobbi also serves on the House Appropriations and Armed Services Committees, and the House Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations and Military Personnel Subcommittees.
