Biography Edit

A decorated combat pilot, Cam Mitchell flew for the Air Force in times of both war and peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Yugoslavia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan. In 2003, he was recruited to the Stargate Program to fly Earth’s first space-worthy fighter-interceptor, the F-302. Cam was the leader of Blue Squadron stationed on the U.S.S. Prometheus in 2004 during the Battle of Antarctica against the Goa’uld System Lord Anubis, where he was grievously wounded. During his long recovery, he was decorated with the Air Force Cross and promised any position he wanted by then-Brigadier General Jack O’Neill.

Cam returned to duty in 2005 and requested reassignment to SG-1 – however, the team had disbanded in the wake of the defeat of the Goa’uld. Shortly after his appointment, the Ori crusade began, and Cam was able to bring the band back together. In 2006, Cam, Lt. Col. Samantha Carter, Dr. Daniel Jackson, and Teal’c were joined by Vala Mal Doran. In 2007, both he and Lt. Col. Carter were promoted to full Colonel, and shortly thereafter, Carter was reassigned to command the Atlantis Expedition. While serving on SG-1, Cam took temporary command of the U.S.S. Odyssey during the final battle of the Ori crusade.

In 2011, Cam took the promotion to Brigadier General and the post of Commanding Officer of Stargate Command (and Deputy Commander of Homeworld Security) when Gen. Landry took mandatory retirement a few months before his 66th birthday. Although the first choice for the position was Col. 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. O’Neill was still at the Pentagon serving as Commander of Homeworld Security, with Lt. Col. Paul Davis as his Chief of Staff. Col. Carter commanded the Hammond, while Dr. 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, and CMSgt. Walter Harriman had retired from the Air Force after a 30-year career. 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 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.

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

Carter, samantha

Brigadier General Samantha “Sam” Carter, Ph.D., USAFR is a main character of Stargate: Continued, a supporting character in SG-20, and a minor recurring character Vampire Slayers Xander Harris Never Trained and Taking Back the Night, fanfiction stories all written by Little_kingsfan2005. She is adapted from the fictional character of the Stargate franchise portrayed by Amanda Tapping in Stargate SG-1Stargate AtlantisStargate: The Ark of TruthStargate: Continuum, and Stargate Universe.

Biography Edit

A longtime veteran of the Stargate Program, Samantha Carter, born on December 29, 1968 at Ramstein Air Base in Germany, is second-generation Air Force. Her father, Jacob, was a Vietnam War veteran who eventually rose to the rank of Major General. Due to her father’s career, Sam and her brother Mark were raised on a variety of different Air Force bases all over the globe. In 1981, when she was 12 and her brother was 10, Sam’s mother, Debra, was killed in a traffic accident. Both Carter siblings blamed their father, who was supposed to go pick her up at the airport; eventually, Sam forgave her father, and followed in his footsteps.

After graduating from high school, Sam was accepted into the United States Air Force Academy, where she graduated first in her class with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics. She attended flight training and was assigned to a fighter squadron, where she logged over 100 hours in enemy airspace during the Gulf War. She then attended Stanford University, where she earned a Ph.D. in Astrophysics (specializing in theoretical astrophysics). She was then assigned to the Pentagon, where she was part of the nascent Stargate Program, responsible for trying to decipher how to activate the Stargate. In 1994, the Stargate was opened thanks to Dr. Daniel Jackson; three years later, Stargate Command was activated, and Captain Carter became a member of Colonel O’Neill’s team, SG-1, as his executive officer and science specialist.

In 1998, Captain Carter was taken over by a Tok’ra symbiont, Jolinar of Malkshur, who sacrificed herself to save Sam from the Ashrak Edrekh, a high-rank assassin sent after Jolinar. This experience left her with memories of the Tok’ra and a protein marker in her blood allowing her to use Goa’uld technology.

She is considered Earth’s leading expert on the Stargate and other alien technology, and Colonel O’Neill once emphatically proclaimed her brain to be a national resource.

After ten years on SG-1 (including one year as team leader and two as co-commander), now-Colonel Carter transferred to the Atlantis Expedition, where she served as Commanding Officer. She was reassigned after one year due to her own success (and the International Oversight Advisory that supervised the multinational program’s desire to have a civilian commander rather than a military officer). Returning to Earth, she attended the Air Command and Staff College, where she earned a Master of Military Operational Art and Science degree while her next position, Captain of the Earth warship Phoenix, was being constructed.

In 2009, Sam took command of the U.S.S. George Hammond (renamed after the passing of retired SGC Commander, Lt. Gen. George Hammond). As a starship captain, Col. Carter’s immediate superior is Brig. Gen. Steven Caldwell, the Commodore of the Tau’ri Space Fleet. 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.

Personal life Edit

Having spent a majority of her career on a special/black-ops command, Sam doesn’t have much of a personal life. During her off-hours, she likes to work on her motorcycle (sometimes helped by MSgt. Sylvester Siler), work on Naquadah generators, correct physics errors in scientific journals, and hang out with her goddaughter, Cassie Fraiser.

Over the years, Sam has had a number of romantic interests and lovers (many of whom have died, leading some to call her “Black Widow Carter”), including Captain Jonas Hanson, who was killed off-world by a people he had manipulated into worshiping him as a god, Martouf, a Tok’ra previously involved with Jolinar who was killed when, under Za’tarc programming, he attempted to assassinate the President of the United States, Narim, a member of the Tollan who is presumed deceased along with the rest of his people, Ambassador Joe Faxon, who was taken prisoner and presumed deceased at the hands of the Aschen, Orlin, an Ascended Being who died after Descending again, and Detective Pete Shanahan, a police officer with the Denver Police Department whom Sam broke up with after the death of her father (just days before their wedding). She is also the object of affection for Dr. Rodney McKay and many of the SGC’s personnel, and she shares a longtime mutual attraction to Jack O’Neill that grew over the eight years they worked closely together, but nothing ever came of it due to the Air Force’s fraternization regulations.

Superpowers, weapons and equipment Edit

As a decorated officer of the United States Air Force, Brig. Gen. Carter carries a Beretta M9 in 9×19mm, and owns a silver Volvo and an Indian Chief motorcycle as her civilian vehicle of choice. She is an expert marksman and is a Level 4-rated hand-to-hand combatant. Because she is the former host to the Tok’ra Jolinar of Malkshur, Brig. Gen. Carter has enough naquadah in her bloodstream to utilize Goa’uld technology, including a kara kesh (ribbon device) and a healing device, as well as the ability to sense other Goa’uld or Tok’ra.

While on Atlantis, Sam attempted to undergo Dr. Beckett’s ATA-gene therapy, but it didn’t work for her (much to her longtime friendly rival Dr. Rodney McKay’s amusement because the gene therapy worked on him).

Alternate versions Edit

In an alternate universe visited by Xander Harris in 2011, Brigadier General Samantha Carter-O’Neill spent a year as Commanding Officer of the Atlantis Expedition, after serving on SG-1 for over a decade. She was promoted to Brigadier General and named Commander of Stargate Command in 2009 after the retirement of Major General Hank Landry.

In this hedonistic universe, Sam, unlike her counterpart, is bisexual; she has had sexual relations with all members of her team (Jack O’Neill, Daniel Jackson, Teal’c, Janet Fraiser, Jonas Quinn, Cameron Mitchell, and Vala Mal Doran) at one point or another over the years. She lost her virginity her freshman year at the Air Force Academy to one of the Military Training Non-Commissioned Officers, TSgt. Peter Vega. During the ’90s, before joining the SGC, Sam, like many female officers, was encouraged to trade sexual favors for professional favors.

After the formation of the SGC, Sam became well-known throughout the cosmos for both her intellectual prowess and her skills as a lover – her greatest achievement was single-handedly killing Ba’al, one of the most powerful and influential System Lords of the Goa’uld Empire, by seducing her way into his bed and shooting him with the zat’nik’tel three times as he lay sated, an act which earned her the Bronze Star.

In 2008, after her return from Atlantis, Maj. Gen. Jack O’Neill retired from the Air Force and proposed to her. The two were married shortly before Sam took command of the SGC.

In 2011, during his road trip across the country, Xander Harris of Sunnydale encountered Sam while passing through Colorado Springs. After engaging in a rather hot threesome with her and her husband, Xander added her to his list of contacts.

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.

Since his semi-retirement, Daniel has devoted most of his free time to deciphering the universal language used by the Ancients, Asgard, Nox, and Furlings.

As a civilian employee of the United States Air Force, Daniel carries a Beretta M9 in 9×19mm as his personal sidearm.  He is a graduate of Northwestern University and UCLA, 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 9×19mm, or an FN-P90 in 5.7×28mm 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 9×19mm 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.

Stargate & Homeworld Commands Edit

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-created 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 with 40 years of service, Gen. Hammond is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy and the Air War College, and has completed the Capstone Military Leadership Program.  He is 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 Air Force 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 daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters, Kayla and Tessa.  The U.S.S. Phoenix, Earth’s 6th Daedalus-class battleship, was renamed the George Hammond in his honor.

Vice Admiral Nicholas “Nick” Schaffer, USN Edit

A career Navy SEAL, Vice Admiral Nick Schaffer was personally selected by Lt. Gen. Jack O’Neill to replace him as the Director of the Department of Homeworld Security upon his retirement at the end of 2012.  Although he had never served at either Homeworld or Stargate Command, V-Adm. Schaffer has had a long and distinguished career in both the Navy SEALs and the Joint Special Operations community, specializing in logistics.  Prior to his promotion, he served as Director of Logistics (J-4), United States Special Operations Command.

Born and raised in San Diego, V-Adm. Schaffer is third-generation Navy, and the first to become an officer.  He attended the United States Naval Academy, and qualified as a Special Warfare Officer as an Ensign.  He has served both in the field and at headquarters as a Logistics Officer.  He has a Master’s degree in Management from the Naval Postgraduate School, and has completed the Capstone Military Leadership Program.  He is a recipient of the Navy Distinguished Service Medal, Legion of Merit, three Defense Meritorious Service Medals, Meritorious Service Medal, two Joint Service Commendation Medals, three Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medals, three Joint Service Achievement Medals, Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medal, Combat Action Ribbon, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards.  In addition, he wears both the Navy SEAL Trident and the Navy Parachutist Badge.

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

Landry, hank

A close 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, Gen. Landry is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy and the Air War College, and has completed the Capstone Military Leadership Program.  He is 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.

Major General Steven Caldwell, USAF Edit

Due to the increasing number of spaceships Stargate Command and Homeworld Security had in place, the senior members of the Stargate Program agreed to appoint a Commodore of the Fleet, someone to oversee the ships and their missions.  They gave the position to Steven Caldwell, the Captain of the U.S.S. Daedalus, due to his part in stopping the Wraith attack on Earth.  Caldwell accepted the position, and traded the Captain’s Chair for a general’s star.

As Commodore of the Fleet, Brig. Gen. Caldwell is responsible for unit-level training, integrated training, and readiness for the Tau’ri Fleet, as well as maintaining administrative functions and material readiness tracking for those ships.  He is the direct commanding officer to all of the Tau’ri ship captains, including Vala Mal Doran, who serves as Captain of the E.C.S. Achilles, Earth’s first interstellar cargo ship, despite not being a military vessel.

In 2014, Gen. Caldwell was promoted to Major General and assigned to Stargate Command as its Commanding Officer, replacing former SG-1 leader Brig. Gen. Cameron Mitchell, who retired from the Air Force.

A career Air Force officer, Maj. Gen. Caldwell has received numerous awards and decorations in his 30+ years of service, including the Defense Superior Service Medal, Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, Air Medal, Joint Service Commendation Medal, Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Force Achievement Medal, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards.  Maj. Gen. Caldwell is divorced, with two grown children.  Because he is the former host to a Goa’uld symbiote, Maj. Gen. Caldwell has enough naquadah in his bloodstream to utilize Goa’uld technology.

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.

Biography Edit

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 straight out of the Air Force Senior NCO Academy 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.

After graduating from Cheyenne Mountain High School (alma mater for many children of SGC personnel), both David and Michael enlisted in the Air Force. Although David left the service after his initial enlistment was up in order to attend college, Michael is still on active duty as of 2015, and is assigned to the SGC as a Sensor Operator.

Since his retirement, Walter and Darlene are enjoying their lives together, and are awaiting the day when they become grandparents.

Command Sergeant Major Jonas David Blane, US Army Special Force (Ret.) Edit

Blane, jonas

Command Sergeant Major Jonas David Blane, US Army is a recurring character of Stargate: Continued, SG-20, and Vampire Slayers Xander Harris Never Trained, and a minor recurring character in Taking Back the Night, fanfiction stories all written by Little_kingsfan2005. He is adapted from the fictional character portrayed on The Unit franchise portrayed by Dennis Haysbert.

Biography Edit

With the Unit Edit

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 United States 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 as a Staff Sergeant, Jonas served in both the United States Army Rangers and the Green Berets, including a tour of duty as an instructor at Ranger School. He is a veteran of the Invasion of Grenada, Invasion of Panama, Gulf War, Kosovo War, and the Global War on Terrorism (both in Afghanistan and Iraq). He has also served alongside the Special Forces operatives from the other four services (Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard).

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 (for which the Unit was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation), Jonas transferred out of the Unit (which also saved his marriage) to serve as the Senior Enlisted Advisor of 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.

Homeworld Security Edit

As the Senior Enlisted Advisor of Homeworld Security, Jonas serves as Lt. Gen. O’Neill’s personal adviser on all enlisted-related matters, particularly in areas affecting training and quality of life.

Upon his appointment, Jonas was given a crash course in the Stargate program. He visited Stargate Command and talked to both the officers and the enlisted personnel; he traveled to Earth’s off-world military installations; and even made the six-week round trip to Atlantis on the U.S.S. Daedalus. He also learned to use some of the technology appropriated by the program that remained classified, including Jaffa Staff Weapons and zat guns.

Jonas has nothing but respect for Lt. Gen. O’Neill, whom he was briefly acquainted with due to their joint SpecOps backgrounds; he also has the ear of the President from his time with the Unit.

Jonas was a key player in the search for Lt. Gen. O’Neill and Xander Harris when they were kidnapped by a minor Goa’uld who sought to make a name for himself by killing the legendary Jack O’Neill. Although Jack and Xander managed to rescue themselves, Jonas was on the SAR team that boarded the hijacked ha’tak (theHomer Simpson) once it returned to Earth.

After Lt. Gen. O’Neill retired, Jonas stayed on as Senior Enlisted Advisor to his successor, Vice Admiral Nick Schaffer. He retired in 2014 after 35 years in the Army.

During his visit to Atlantis, Jonas was given the ATA gene via Dr. Beckett’s gene therapy; like most others who received the gene therapy, Jonas can now activate and utilize Ancient technology, but not with anywhere near the ease of natural gene carriers such as Lt. Gen. O’Neill or Col. Sheppard.

In 2004, the middle-aged woman became the executive assistant to Lt. Gen. George Hammond, who had been named the Commanding Officer of Homeworld Security, and Jack had inherited her when Gen. Hammond retired and he took over.

Brigadier General Donald James “Don” Richardson, JAGC, USAF (Ret. 2009) 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 by newly-promoted Lt. Gen. Jack O’Neill to serve as Homeworld Security’s civilian General Counsel.

Chaplain (Major) Michael “Mike” Callaghan, USAF Edit

The Chaplain of Stargate Command since 2004, Maj. Mike Callaghan is a picture-perfect example of an Irish-Catholic military chaplain.  He is devout in his faith, and is always willing to listen and dispatch advice to the servicemen and women of his command.

However, since the SGC deals with things that are out of this world – including but not limited to fighting aliens who pose as gods, aliens with godlike powers, and more – Chaplain Callaghan is constantly challenging both himself and his congregation to look to God and follow the path He has laid out for them.  Also, as the only Chaplain of the command, Chaplain Callaghan has been called upon to serve as an interfaith minister.

Atlantis Expedition Edit

Dr. Elizabeth Weir, Ph.D. (d. 2008) Edit

Weir, elizabeth

The temporary commander of Stargate Command, Dr. Weir is an accomplished and acclaimed 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 three years as Commander of the Atlantis Expedition, Dr. Weir was captured by the Replicators (Asurans) during a mission and declared Missing in Action.

Colonel Marshall Sumner, USMC (KIA, 2004) Edit

The first Military Commander/2nd-in-Command of the Atlantis Expedition, Col. Marshall Sumner was killed in action during the Expedition’s first encounter with the Wraith.

Secretary General Richard P. Woolsey, M.B.A., LL.B., IOA Edit

Woolsey, richard

Commander of the Atlantis Expedition, Richard Woolsey is a former NID agent who served as the US Representative to the International Oversight Advisory from its inception in 2005 until his appointment as Commander of Atlantis in 2008. Woolsey’s other jobs include Harvard Law Review, Chief Counsel of the United States Army Corps of Engineers, and an appellate advocate for Hartshorn and Slaughter, a prestigious litigation boutique firm in New York City.

A lawyer and a career bureaucrat, Woolsey is a stickler for the rules, and is disappointed with both himself and others when necessity requires to break them, believing that the rules are there for a reason, and that the ends don’t (always) justify the means.

In 2012, Woolsey relinquished command of Atlantis to newly-promoted Brigadier General John Sheppard, while he took over as Secretary General of the International Oversight Advisory.  As Sec. Gen. IOA, Woolsey is the civilian counterpart to the Commander of Homeworld Command, responsible for all of the Tau’ri’s off-world diplomatic and civilian operations.

Brigadier General John Sheppard, Ph.D., USAF Edit

Sheppard, john

Military Commander/2nd-in-Command of the Atlantis Expedition and leader of the 1st Atlantis Reconnaissance Team, Col. John Sheppard is a former disgraced pilot who regained the trust and favor of his superior officers upon joining the Atlantis Expedition.

Col. Sheppard was an experienced and talented US Air Force pilot in Afghanistan, until his reputation was tarnished when he disobeyed a direct order in an unsuccessful attempt to save the lives of several US servicemen.  Following an Article 32 investigation, then-Maj. Sheppard was assigned to McMurdo Station in Antarctica as a transport pilot.  In 2004, Maj. Sheppard was transporting Brig. Gen. Jack O’Neill, the newly-promoted Commander of the SGC, to the Ancient defense facility when it was discovered that he not only had the ATA gene (the genetic factor necessary to activate Ancient technology), but that he was naturally proficient in using it.  Sheppard joined the Atlantis Expedition as USMC Col. Marshall Sumner’s 2nd-in-Command over the Colonel’s objections.

When Col. Sumner was killed by the Wraith, Col. Sheppard, as the ranking military officer, took over as Military Commander/2nd-in-Command of the Expedition.  He established the 1st Atlantis Recon Team, consisting of himself, 1st Lt. Aiden Ford, Dr. Rodney McKay, and Pegasus Galaxy native Teyla Emmagan.  A year later, Lt. Ford became MIA, and his spot on the team was taken by Ronon Dex, another Pegasus Galaxy native and a former Wraith runner.

In 2005, Sheppard was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel over the objections of some in the Pentagon and instated as the official Military Commander, and he was promoted to “full-bird” Colonel in 2009 after saving Earth from the Wraith.  He began a relationship with Teyla after returning to the Pegasus Galaxy.

In 2012, John was promoted to Brigadier General and named Commander of not just the Atlantis Expedition, but the Supreme Allied Commander Pegasus, responsible for all of the Tau’ri’s operations in the Pegasus Galaxy.  His team was taken over by newly-promoted Major Laura Cadman.  He was also given a new 2nd-in-Command, US Navy Commander Joe Rodgers.

Brig. Gen. Sheppard is one of the more laid-back, easy-going personalities on the Atlantis Expedition.  He is capable under pressure, an excellent marksman, and outstanding pilot.  He is very instinctual and frequently is able to come up with ingenious solutions to complicated problems.  He has an easy rapport with most of the people in Atlantis – including the military personnel that are below him in terms of rank.  He has a rather wry sense of humor, and frequently alleviates tension by telling jokes to keep spirits up.  He hates clowns, enjoys Ferris wheels, American football, and “anything that goes faster than 200 miles per hour”, along with displaying a vague aptitude for chess.  He qualified for Mensa, but never joined.  He’s an avid golfer and a fan of Johnny Cash.

Despite the glaring black mark on his record, Brig. Gen. Sheppard is a decorated officer in the United States Air Force.  He earned his commission through AFROTC at Stanford University, where he graduated with a degree in Mathematics.  He also graduated from Squadron Officer School.  While stationed at McMurdo, he was working on his Ph.D. in applied mathematics, and completed all but his dissertation when he was assigned to Atlantis; he finally completed his doctorate in 2009 while Atlantis was on Earth.  He carries a Para-Ordnance P-14 in .45 ACP as his sidearm.  He is a recipient of the Air Force Distinguished Service Medal, Silver, Star (which he received for stopping the Wraith super-hive that had made its way to Earth), Distinguished Flying Cross, Meritorious Service Medal, Air Medal, Aerial Achievement Medal, Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Force Achievement Medal, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards.

U.S.S. George Hammond Edit

Staff Sergeant Danielle Evans, USAF Edit

Born in 1988, Staff Sergeant Danielle Evans’s plan was to join the Air Force, spend a few years traveling the country, maybe even serve overseas, and then after her six-year enlistment was up, maybe go to college or just get a good job and then a career, find a boyfriend, and settle down as a wife and a mother.  She did not expect to be serving as the Captain’s Executive Assistant on the U.S.S. George S. Hammond, a Daedalus-class starship.

After graduating from high school in Oakland, California, in 2006, Danielle enlisted in the Air Force.  After completing basic training and technical training school, the 19-year-old woman-child found herself at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, attached to Chief Master Sergeant Richard Small’s staff at Air Force Space Command as a Mission Support Specialist.  She served as his aide for eleven months and enjoyed her work and did it well.  As the chief’s aide, she did mostly clerical work, filing reports, answering phone calls and e-mails and so on.  The chief was very good to her, and unlike some of the junior airmen that she worked with (many of them in their 20s and even a couple of them who were married), he didn’t stare, leer, or even express any sexual interest in her, a very pretty girl and a high school cheerleader.

Her family was extremely proud of her, the military girl.  Many of her own friends couldn’t believe that she would go anywhere near the military, with their dress-code and the possibility of ending up in Iraq dealing with religious zealots with guns and suicide bombers, but her mom often bragged to her friends and neighbors about how heroic and brave her baby girl was being by joining the US Air Force.  Her ex-boyfriend, who she mutually broke up with at the end of high school due to their different paths (her to the Air Force and he to Duke University on a basketball scholarship) and not wanting to be held down by any one person, had thought the idea of her in a uniform and holding an M-4 was erotic, a thought that had both of them laughing.

When her eleven months at Peterson were up, Danielle received a promotion to Airman 1st Class, an accomplishment she relished.  She also found out, from Chief Small himself, that she was being transferred to Cheyenne Mountain on his personal recommendation, to work for Chief Master Sergeant Walter Harriman, the SNCO of the base who also doubled as the administrative chief.  She served in that capacity until the Hammond was ready for duty later that year, and she transferred from Stargate Command to outer space to serve as Colonel Samantha Carter’s personal assistant, and at the age of 21, Danielle became the youngest person to serve on an SGC starship.

Danielle has made many friends on the Hammond, becoming the unofficial little sister to the crew; she has grown especially close to Lt. Charlie Bronson, who joined the Hammond at the same time she did (she was the youngest enlisted woman on the ship, he the most junior officer), with whom she shares a mutual attraction.  However, due to the military’s fraternization regulations, she and Charlie have never consummated their relationship.

Six months into her tour of duty on the Hammond, Danielle was promoted to Senior Airman, and in 2012, she was promoted again to Staff Sergeant.   She is a recipient of the Organizational Excellence Award, the Air Force Good Conduct Medal (with one oak leaf cluster), the National Defense Service Medal, the Air Force Longevity Service Award, and the Air Force Training Ribbon.

Earth allies Edit

Colonel Harold “Harry” Maybourne, USAF (dishonorable discharge, 2000)/King Arkhan I Edit

The former NID Liaison to Stargate Command, Col. Harry Maybourne’s career came to an end in 2000 after being caught stealing advanced technology from Earth’s allies.  Although he escaped, he was later caught by SG-1 when they found he’d assisted the Russians in creating their own Stargate program.  Convicted of numerous crimes, including treason, Maybourne was dishonorably discharged and sentenced to life without parole in Fort Leavenworth.

While on temporary release to assist Jack O’Neill in saving Gen. George Hammond from the Rogue NID, Maybourne escaped, and spent the next three years on the run.  After voluntarily turning himself in and then once again assisting Col. O’Neill, Maybourne was retired to a quiet planet somewhere in the galaxy.

There, he set himself up as King of the local community, and while his people loved him, it took a little while for the feeling to be mutual.  In 2005, King Arkhan I officially opened up diplomatic relations with Earth.  He is married, with multiple wives and a few children, all from his new world.

Once a decorated Air Force officer, Col. Maybourne graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1980 with a degree in Political Science.  He is a recipient of the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, Joint Service Commendation Medal, Air Force Commendation Medal, and numerous unit, campaign, and service awards.  He was stripped of his rank and titles upon his dishonorable discharge.

A human from another planet, Martin Lloyd deserted from his people’s military while fighting the Goa’uld.  After learning about the destruction of his people, Martin decided to remain on Earth, and he created a campy science fiction television show based on the real Stargate program and SG-1.  The show was picked up with the name Wormhole X-Treme! and Martin was made a creative consultant.

Although Wormhole X-Treme! only aired three episodes, DVD sales were successful, and a television movie was developed.  However, eventually the movie was canceled, although the series was renewed instead, with Martin as producer.

Interstellar allies Edit

Skaara Edit

Daniel Jackson’s brother-in-law, Skaara of Abydos was a close friend of Jack O’Neill.  With the help of the Abydos Expedition from Earth, Skaara and the Abydonians rebelled against Ra and gained their freedom.

Three years later, Skaara was taken as a host to the Goa’uld Klorel.  He remained a host for two and a half years, until he was freed by Jack and Daniel, the Tollan, the Nox, and the Tok’ra.  Now his own man once again, he returned to Abydos and became a leader of his people.

Skaara and the rest of the Abydonians were killed by Anubis, who used his ship’s superweapon to destroy all life on the planet; fortunately Oma Desala helped him and the others ascend to a higher plane.

Many years later, after the defeat of Anubis and the Ori, Skaara became an unofficial spokesman for Ascended Beings in regards to the Tau’ri of Earth.  Both Jack and Daniel were very pleased to see their old friend again after so many years, and happily accepted Skaara as their liaison.

In 2009, Bra’tac honored Lieutenant General Jack O’Neill, the longtime leader of SG-1, by proclaiming him an honorary Jaffa Master.

Supreme Commander Thor, Asgard Fleet (d. 2007) Edit

Thor (stargate)

Supreme Commander of the Asgard Fleet and member of the Asgard High Council, Thor was a close friend and ally to SG-1 and the rest of Stargate Command. After Jack O’Neill helped save him from the Replicators, Thor named his brand-new flagship the O’Neill (unfortunately, the O’Neill was quickly sacrificed by Thor and then-Maj. Samantha Carter in order to defeat the Replicators).

After the Replicators were ultimately defeated in 2005, Thor spent the next/last two years of his life preparing to gift the Tau’ri with all of the Asgard’s knowledge.

Major General Jacob Carter, USAF (Ret.)/Selmak (d. 2005) Edit

The former Ambassador between the Tok’ra and the Tau’ri, Maj. Gen. Jacob Carter is the father of Samantha Carter and her younger brother, Mark.

Jacob retired from the Air Force in 1998 after learning that he had terminal cancer; fortunately, Sam was able to save his life by persuading him to blend with a Tok’ra named Selmak. Together, the two served as the Ambassador between the Tok’ra and the Tau’ri.

Sadly, due to Selmak’s advanced age, the symbiont passed away in 2005 and due the circumstances of Selmak’s last days (the defeat of Anubis and the Replicators), it was unable to prevent itself from releasing the toxic poison natural to the Goa’uld species, resulting in Jacob’s death a few days later.

Jacob was given a full military funeral in Colorado Springs, and both Jacob and Selmak were cremated and spread across the Tok’ra homeworld.

Commander Tomin, Ori Republic Edit

Military Commander of the Ori Republic, Tomin, a senior officer in the Ori Army, helped create the Republic after Stargate Command defeated the Ori in 2007.  A true believer in Origin, Tomin strives to live his life according to its teachings, not the will of the corrupt Ascended Beings who perverted it.

Commander Guide (Todd), Wraith Alliance Edit

The ranking officer in the Wraith Alliance, Guide (known to the Atlantis Expedition as Todd) is a sometimes ally, sometimes enemy of Earth’s representatives to the Pegasus Galaxy. He was a young warrior during the Lantean-Wraith war 10,000 years ago, and is known to be one of the strongest and most respected Wraith currently alive.

As part of the Wraith Alliance with the Atlantis Expedition, Guide utilizes Teyla (a Wraithkin, or descendant of a human experimented on by the Wraith) as his hive’s Queen, Steelflower.

Guide was once the Consort of the Wraith Queen Snow, with whom he fathered a daughter, Alabaster.
