General info

The Pentagon is in charge of the SGC (as all military operations). Originally only the Joint Chiefs (and an assigned liaison) knew about the program. Eventually, more and more Pentagon personnel found out and were included in the process.

Along with the R& D that happens at Area 51, the Department of Defense also contracted out some R& D related to SGC projects/technology to various companies, without ever telling them what it was from, or for. (Each company would only have been given a portion of a project, never the whole thing, obviously.) (Covenant)

Colson Industries won several of those contracts, including one for sequencing some DNA -- Asgard DNA. Colson did more than they were supposed to instead of simply sequencing it, they grew an Asgard clone. They had no idea at the outset where the DNA was from. (Covenant)

When Alec Colson went public with his proof that aliens were indeed visiting Earth -- by showing the walking Asgard clone to the media -- the Pentagon lost patience and told Jack and the SGC to put a stop to it. Jack did so by calling in a marker -- he brought Thor in to present himself as a hologram and pretend to be just a bit of military technology in development. (Covenant)

Jack appeared to be stationed at the Pentagon as of early 2005 - the Pentagon liaison who brought Landry news of the International Committee's decision about financing for the SGC and the Atlantis expedition also brought Jack's opinions on the matter, and his backing for Landry. (The Ties That Bind)

Office of Special Operations (OSI)

real-life site:  

They're responsible for criminal investigations and counterintelligence for the Air Force

nb: In addition to the USAF OSI, there's also a Department of Justice OSI, which handles WWII Nazis in the US. They're not connected.

This was the branch that gave approval for Teal'c to live offbase when Jack petitioned them. (Affinity)

They attached some provisions to the approval, largely boiling down to 'he can't attract any attention to himself'. (Affinity)

Despite their disapproval of the situation and their concerns about Teal'c's actions, the OSI insisted that they didn't have Teal'c under surveillance while he was living offbase. (Affinity)

Lt. Colonel Harlan 'Harley' Beck

Not at the Pentagon.

During the Gulf War (in 1991), as a lieutenant, he served under Jack in Operation Proven Force out of Incirlik -- he flew an AC-130 gunship over Baghdad. (Fragile Balance)

As of 2003, he was serving with the 10th Air Base Wing at the Air Force Academy. (Fragile Balance)

General Jacob Carter, USAF

2-star (major) general (medals).

Sam's father.

Played football at some point (no idea if it was high school or college/academy). (Evolution, part 2)

He served with General Hammond during the Cold War (Secrets).

He's a widower with two children -- Sam and her brother Mark -- and two grandchildren (Mark's son and daughter) (Cold Lazarus).

His wife died when Sam was a teenager (my rough guess is somewhere in the early 1980s). Jacob was supposed to pick her up but was late, so she took a cab instead and died in a car accident (The Devil You Know).

He was alienated from Mark for years after that (Seth).

In 1998 he was diagnosed with lymphoma and told he had only a few months to live. He pulled some strings at NASA to bump Sam ahead of the waiting list of astronaut applicants, expecting it would make her happy, and was confused, disappointed, and hurt/angry when she turned him down. He told her about the cancer and walked away. (Secrets)

A short while later, his cancer got much worse, but he refused to let Hammond recall Sam to be with him -- even as he tried to cajole info out of him about what Sam was really doing. (Tok'ra, part 1)

Hammond refused both requests, pulling Sam out of the first mission to the Tok'ra so that she could say goodbye to her father. (Tok'ra, part 2)

Sam came up with the idea of Jacob being a host, to save his life (and to provide a basis for further relations with the Tok'ra). Jacob was doubtful, but went through the stargate and met up with Saroosh and Selmak, and finally agreed. He blended with Selmak and went to live with the Tok'ra, as one of them. (Tok'ra, part 2)

He's been back on Earth many times since then, but almost always as a Tok'ra representative.

He's functioned as an actual general on Earth only once since then, during the search for Seth. (Seth)

see Jacob/Selmak for further details.

Colonel Frank Cromwell X

(AF SOF, not actually from the Pentagon per se).

Deceased as of 1998. (A Matter of Time)

Used to be a friend of Jack's. (A Matter of Time)

On a previous mission, Cromwell thought Jack had been killed and made a decision to save the rest of the team, leaving Jack behind where he spent four months in an Iraqi prison. Jack never forgave him. (A Matter of Time)

In 1998, Cromwell headed the unit sent to discover if the suddenly incommunicado SGC had been overrun by aliens, to find that it was being affected by massive gravity waves from being connected to a black hole. (A Matter of Time)

He stayed behind with Jack when everyone else evacuated the facility, to set the autodestruct in motion after everyone else was clear. (Authorization code to auto-destruct the base: 10432772). (A Matter of Time)

When that plan was changed to setting a shaped charge to close the wormhole, Cromwell went with Jack to set it, and died as a result (sucked into the black hole when his safety line snapped). But he managed to repair his friendship with Jack before he died. (A Matter of Time)

Major Paul Davis

Goes from not understanding the SGC mindset in Into the Fire (not wanting to waste personnel and materiel to rescue 'one SG team', even if it is SG-1) to actually waiting, after Jack orders him to fire on the submarine in Small Victories, for Daniel to give the go-ahead. Truly a liaison between the SGC and the Pentagon/Joint Chiefs, understanding both parties.

Wasn't sure the Tok'ra could be trusted when Makepeace brought back information about where SG-1 was being held (in Hathor's fake-SGC base), and wanted to know why the Tok'ra operative wasn't doing something about rescuing SG-1 (not seeming to get that passing along information is doing something). (Into the Fire)

He also felt that using as many resources as possible to rescue one team was a waste, no matter who the team was. (He got a short but pointed dressing down from Hammond about that.) (Into the Fire)

Once the rescue attempt went bad, with four more SG teams trapped on the planet, Davis passed along the orders from the president and the Joint Chiefs that no more reinforcements were to be sent -- and he agreed with the orders. (Into the Fire)

Was one of the people scanned and mimicked by the Foothold aliens. (Foothold)

The device that mimicked him was one of 12 that survived the aliens's retreat and destruction, and was stored at Area 51. (Smoke and Mirrors)

Got sent to Russia along with Daniel to negotiate for the use of the DHD to rescue Teal'c, where his Pentagon leanings showed more clearly -- he wasn't actually interested in dealing with the Russians, just in getting what he wanted without giving anything up. But he went along with Daniel's idea to offer naquadah generator technology, which tipped the balance in their favor. (48 Hours)

Made it offworld to help figure out what Anubis's empty ship was doing in Earth orbit. (Descent)

Sent to talk to a reporter, Julia Donovan, who had info about an SGC project -- Prometheus -- to get her to back off on the story. (Prometheus)

He wasn't remotely successful. All he did was find out that her source told her that it was some sort of fusion reactor being built in the desert. (Prometheus)

After her (NID) camera crew took over the ship, he took charge of the command center set up to deal with them (Jack showed up after a bit, but Davis still seemed to be in charge, oddly). (Prometheus)

After that, he went to collect Simmons to bring him, per the hijackers's demands. (Prometheus)

Acted as liaison between the Pentagon and the district attorney during the investigation of Senator Kinsey's shooting. (Smoke and Mirrors)

He brought the SGC the videotape showing evidence of Jack leaving the building where the shooter was. (Smoke and Mirrors)

Later, the real assassin, a rogue NID agent (Devlin), used the mimic device that projected Davis's image to gain access to the comatose Kinsey and attempt to finish the job of killing him. (Smoke and Mirrors)

Chosen to give the briefing to the Chinese, French, and UK ambassadors to the US when the decision was made to disclose the stargate program (to the permanent members of the UN Security Council, apparently). (Disclosure)

Strangely, he appeared not to be well-prepared for the meeting, conducting his presentation in such a way that his audience got lost, especially in the beginning. (Disclosure)

He also had to deal with Senator Kinsey butting in and using the meeting as a personal power play. (Disclosure)

He returned to the SGC to be part of the negotiations with the Amran representatives. (Zero Hour)

Within an hour, talks had completely stalled because the Amrans couldn't even move past bickering with each other ('like children', according to Davis), never mind start discussing the trade agreement with Earth. (Zero Hour)

He sent for Jack, who dealt with the situation by locking up the Amran representatives in the same room together until they were prepared to talk like adults. (Zero Hour)

He was still on the base days later while the SGC was dealing with Baal and a power shutdown as a result of an alien plant run amok in the walls. When Jack was looking for options for dealing with Baal and getting SG-1 back, Davis brought up the possibility of the Goa'uld poison the Tok'ra had provided the formula for more than two years earlier (Summit/Last Stand). (Zero Hour)

Altered timeline: see Davis

In early 2005, he was working with SG-7 to try to help the new Jaffa council's efforts to form a new government. It wasn't going particularly well, since many of the newly free Jaffa didn't trust the Tau'ri, and believed they were helping the government in order to control the Jaffa. (Avalon part 1)

Lieutenant General George Hammond

As of 2004, he's a three-star general stationed at the Pentagon. (Zero Hour)

Tech Sergeant Dale James

A cameraman who was working for Emmett Bregman while he was making his documentary about the SGC. (Heroes, part 1)

Although he got along well with Bregman for the most part, he flatly refused to do anything that he wasn't authorized to do, saying he wouldn't risk court-martial. (Heroes, part 1)

He and Wickenhouse did some digging to find out what had happened on the mission to P3X-666, and found out about the rescue (although they heard only about SG-1 and SG-5 going, not SG-7) and that one person was possibly dead. (Heroes, part 2)

He was pretty shaken to see the film that Daniel had shot, first of Wells's screaming through his injury, then Janet's death. (Heroes, part 2)

He was present at Janet's memorial at the SGC, as the crew filmed it to be part of the documentary. (Heroes, part 2)

General John P. Jumper

The USAF Chief of Staff. (Lost City, part 2)

He arrived in the Oval Office during a meeting with Hayes, Hammond, Kinsey, and Maynard to announce that space-based radar had picked up three Goa'uld ships heading for Earth. He said that the Prometheus and the fleet of F-302s could handle it, but Hammond, while agreeing that that was true if there were no other ships coming, respectfully suggested that they not send the Prometheus out he believed it to be a feint, for Anubis to judge their defenses, and wanted to give SG-1 a chance to return with weapons technology they could use. (Lost City, part 2)

After Anubis's attack on a Navy battle group, he reported in another Oval Office meeting (Hayes, Kinsey, Hammond, Maynard, and an unnamed woman) that although all their FA-22s and ABLs were in the air, there was nothing to attack Anubis hadn't made another move since wiping out the battle group. (Lost City, part 2)

After Anubis's appearance in the Oval Office and Hayes's refusal to kowtow to him, Jumper took the call that 30-plus ships had appeared in orbit around Earth. (Lost City, part 2)

(Outside the SG universe, General Jumper is the actual Chief of Staff of the Air Force, and was Chief of Staff during the filming of this episode. He took over as USAF Chief of Staff in September 2001, after General Michael E. Ryan retired. General Ryan, who held the office of USAF Chief of Staff from October 1997 to September 2001, also appeared as himself on the show. The only USAF Chief of Staffs active during Stargate SG-1 filming who have not appeared on the show are General Ronald R. Fogelman, who retired in early September 1997, and General Ralph E. Eberhart, who was Acting Chief of Staff for one month before General Ryan was sworn in on October 6, 1997.)

Colonel Kendrick

Assigned to the Office of Special Investigations. (Affinity)

Dressed in a suit, not a uniform, much like Simmons. (Affinity)

He arrived unannounced and uninvited at the SGC after Jack refused to return his calls, to complain about Teal'c breaking the conditions of his living offbase -- he wasn't staying low-profile enough for the OSI to be comfortable with. (Affinity)

He was none too happy with Jack's attitude about the situation, firmly believing that Teal'c's presence offbase was a major security risk and that Jack was taking the situation far too lightly. (Affinity)

The fact that Jack paid no attention whatsoever to any of his warnings didn't sit well, either. (Affinity)

When Teal'c became wanted for kidnapping and murder, in the death of Krista James's boyfriend Doug and her (and Teal'c's) disappearance, and was then captured by the OSI (working off a tip), Kendrick returned to the SGC to check on things, and was very displeased to discover that Teal'c was being housed in his old quarters on base, without so much as a guard on the door. He got very shirty with Jack, saying that if Jack didn't transfer Teal'c to a holding cell, he'd recommend that Teal'c be held somewhere else entirely. (Affinity)

He clearly believed it was more than possible that Teal'c had done it. (Affinity)

When Daniel went missing as well, Kendrick was finally convinced there was something else going on. (Affinity)

top | non-SGC military personne

Colonel Kennedy

Opposes the SGC and does what he can to undermine it.

Originally tried to take Teal'c away from the SGC for scientific study. (The Enemy Within)

Wanted to let Kawalsky die to save the symbiote that had infested him so they could study it. (The Enemy Within)

When Hammond told him in no uncertain terms that that wouldn't happen, and got up and left the briefing table, Kennedy (and his personal aide) utterly failed to stand up, as they should have done (and as every other military person in the room did). (The Enemy Within)

Hasn't been seen since first season.

top | non-SGC military personnell

General Kerrigan

Not specifically Pentagon (although Sam seems to be referring to him when she mentions 'Pentagon staff' in Proving Ground).

One-star general (brigadier general), and commander of the Air Force Academy located near Cheyenne Mountain. (Prodigy)

Knows Sam from her time at the academy, and they clearly have a fairly fond professional relationship. (Prodigy)

At first has no clue what goes on at SGC (Prodigy), but is eventually brought in on the secret and becomes part of the recruitment effort, helping to hand-pick recruits from the academy and following their progress through their SGC training. (Proving Ground)

Is on friendly, fairly relaxed terms with Hammond, and is clearly convinced of SGC's importance and the need for good training. (Prodigy)

top | non-SGC military personnel

Colonel Harry Maybourne

NID years

A nemesis for SGC and SG-1 from the beginning.

He was part of the NID.

He took Samuels's place as Pentagon/NID liaison after Samuels moved on to the Pentagon. (Enigma)

His mandate was research and development -- he worked at Area 51. (Enigma, Touchstone)

First interaction with the SGC was to come bringing an order releasing the refugee Tollans into NID (=his) custody, so they could be held in a 'secure facility' in the Rockies. When Hammond stalled him long enough to give Daniel a chance to help the Tollans escape, Maybourne reacted by threatening to shoot all the escaping Tollans and court-martial Daniel. Not the most auspicious start to his relationship with the SGC. (Enigma)

While still working at Area 51, he worked on a prototype weapon whose development was overseen by Colonel Samuels -- a naquadah-enhanced Mark-12A warhead. (Serpent's Lair)

Tried to worsen Teal'c's condition in Bane and took him away from the SGC for scientific study.

Moved on to take command of Area 51. (Touchstone)

He seemed shocked when he found  out that the second stargate was missing from its sealed crate, replaced with a plastic copy, but wasn't worried what would  happen to his career, assuming that he'd be reassigned. (Touchstone)

Showed up again a year later when Sam contacted him to help her defeat an alien invasion that had incapacitated the rest of the SGC. (Foothold)

He fumbled it at first by contacting the aliens masquerading as SGC members and basically letting them know what Sam was up to. (Foothold)

In the end, though, he came through, even getting some honest (and seemingly much appreciated) praise from Jack. (Foothold)

Had the grace to give the credit to Sam at the end of Foothold.

At some point, he recruited Simmons -- the two of them 'go back'. (48 Hours)

Neither of them trusted the other at all. (48 Hours)

Rogue NID years

At some point during the second or third season, he took an active role in the doings of the rogue NID organization set up to acquire alien technology at any cost. It's unclear if he was part of it from his first appearance or if he joined up later.

He controlled the movements of the units under his command -- they weren't allowed to use the stargate on their base without his permission/direction. (Shades of Grey)

When they 'acquired' tech small enough to be smuggled back to Earth in someone's kit, he gave the NID unit the time and location of his SG mole's next offworld mission, so they could get there ahead of time, make the drop, and get out. (Shades of Grey)

He found out about Jack's retirement and the reasons for it pretty much immediately, and showed up on Jack's doorstep the next day to make him an offer, clearly believing that Jack was completely sincere in his change of heart about the SGC's ethical policies. Jack kicked him out, but Maybourne left a card, and Jack called a week later to say he wanted in. (Shades of Grey)

Maybourne went very dramatic in making sure Jack was sure, saying the operation was 'secret' and 'dangerous' and that once Jack saw what he was taking him to see, his choices would be to go along or disappear. (Shades of Grey)

He took Jack up in a jet to 30,000 feet to continue the discussion, to avoid surveillance, and contacted the temporary leader (Newman) of the NID unit he wanted Jack to lead by way of a Goa'uld long-distance communicator the unit was offworld. (Shades of Grey)

Once Jack accepted, Maybourne gave him his first mission almost as soon as he'd arrived at the NID base: stealing Asgard tech from an Asgard-protected world. (Shades of Grey)

He was presumably captured and imprisoned after Jack exposed the rogue NID cell, but this was never shown. He later appeared in Russia helping with a clandestine Russian stargate program, after some 'friends' facilitated his escape from custody. (Watergate)

Solo mercenary years

Was recaptured and held in a federal facility (prisoner number S2989) after Watergate, facing the death penalty for treason. (Chain Reaction)

Jack had to go to him for help after the NID forced Hammond into retirement and planted what was probably one of their own people in command of the SGC. (Chain Reaction)

Maybourne did as he promised, getting Jack enough info to threaten Senator Kinsey and get Hammond reinstated. (Chain Reaction)

He emailed himself a copy of the incriminating evidence, and used it to pressure 'people' into transferring him to another facility after Jack hands him back to the authorities. He escaped from custody and took off to an island somewhere. (Chain Reaction)

Used hundreds of aliases, including 'Charles Bliss'. (Chain Reaction)

Kept an incredibly underfurnished apartment under that name that no one knew about until he used it to track down info on the NID for Jack. (Chain Reaction)

By six or so months after that, he was established as a mercenary of sorts, selling information and other items -- including a symbiote from a Jaffa the Russians had secretly brought back from a mission. (Desperate Measures)

He still read the NID coded messages on various websites, and responded promptly when Jack contacted him using that method to find out what had happened to Carter. (Desperate Measures)

He obviously enjoyed working with Jack, but was just as obviously determined to save his own skin. (Desperate Measures)

He obviously kept  fairly steady tabs on the NID, or at the very least on NID files that relate to SGC (or possibly Jack), and was  probably living somewhere in the US -- he found  out that Teal'c was  trapped in the stargate and showed up to talk to Jack about it in what seemed to be about 24 hours (was staying locally at the Accent Inn under an alias). (48 Hours)

He could still hack into restricted NID databases with no problem, and was  one of the few people who knew the current location of all the NID's 'safehouses' (special ops bases). (48 Hours)

With nothing in it for himself beyond a chance to get at Simmons on some level, he helped Jack break into an NID safehouse and raid it for the Goa'uld and the information SGC needs to rescue Teal'c. (48 Hours)

His history with Simmons is unpleasant enough that Maybourne basically offered to assassinate him when Jack came looking for help, sweetening the idea with the guess that Simmons was the one that shot Jack. (48 Hours)

The money he was supposed to have gotten for selling the symbiote to Adrian Conrad's company was supposed to set him up for life -- losing out on it left him with nothing. (Paradise Lost)

His attempts to stay hidden were getting less successful, and he was close to being caught (whether by the rogue NID or the authorities wasn't clear). (Paradise Lost)

As the president approached the end of his second term, Maybourne went to Jack to suggest that the president grant him a pardon as one of his final acts. (Paradise Lost)

Maybourne was  increasingly comfortable with Jack -- while waiting on Jack's porch, he swiped a hotdog and a beer. (Paradise Lost)

To sweeten the idea, Maybourne offered to help the SGC get to the planet Simmons had tried to fly to in the X-303, a planet that was supposed to hold a cache of the Ancients's weapons. He wanted a direct trade: planet for pardon. (Paradise Lost)

He also wanted to go along on the mission, explaining that he had the only key to an impenetrable doorway protecting the cache. (Paradise Lost)

The mission was a front -- Maybourne really wanted to gain access to the stargate so he could go to a planet that was supposed to be a paradise. (Paradise Lost)

He turned himself in to the SGC in order to get what he wanted, and finagled his way onto the mission to the planet by refusing to give Jack the combination that went with the key, necessary to open the portal/doorway to the 'cache'. (Paradise Lost)

The key -- a 'stone' (actually looks like metal with crystal inserts, in an elongated, rounded shape) -- was discovered in an Egyptian tomb in the 1920s ('eighty years ago') wrapped in a scroll with writing on it no one could read. (Paradise Lost)

Maybourne got it translated -- he never said by whom. The scroll contained instructions for how to use the stone to access the power of the gods. (Paradise Lost)

Once on the planet, he got halfway through the process (inserted they key, did the combination) then pretended frustration with it, saying it hadn't worked. Sam stepped up to help, and Maybourne stole her zat and shot both her (at extremely close range) and Jack, then removed the key and leapt through the portal that had promptly opened. Jack barely managed to get there in time to go through with him. (Paradise Lost)

The mission to open the doorway was the first time Maybourne ever stepped through the stargate.

Has minimal (at best) field survival skills: he drank the water on an alien planet without testing it, ate local vegetation without testing it, used a grenade to go fishing, etc. (Paradise Lost)

Went completely nuts from eating a plant that had been brought to the utopia by a Goa'uld, which had the effect of making humans (and possibly other races) dangerously paranoid. (Paradise Lost)

Maybourne was convinced Jack honestly intended to kill him, and went on the offensive with both the P-90 he'd stolen from Jack and some grenades. (Paradise Lost)

Got shot in the side (not badly -- possibly just grazed) by being invisibly in the line of fire when Jack was shooting at a wild boar to keep from being gored/trampled/whatever. Got shot again, far more seriously, when Jack had to shoot him to keep the paranoid Maybourne from killing him. (Paradise Lost)

Hates arugula. (Paradise Lost)

When they finally got rescued, Maybourne announced that he'd rather die than spend his life in jail. (Paradise Lost)

Jack suggested that the Tok'ra could probably find him a nice planet somewhere, since Maybourne had suffered enough. (Presumably it will be an isolated, uninhabited planet with no stargate access.) (Paradise Lost)

Somewhere along the way, he picked up enough Ancient to be able to read it. (It's Good to Be King)

See 'King Arkhan' for further information about Maybourne.

General Francis Maynard

Four-star general. (Inauguration)

Army general.  He wears a cavalry patch as well. (Inauguration)

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff as of 2003/2004. (Inauguration)

He briefed the new president on the stargate program as the president's first meeting on his first working day in office. (Inauguration)

He continued the briefing (sticking around as the president read reports) for at least part of the day. He appeared comfortable enough with the president (who called him by his first name) to admit that he didn't particuarly trust the vice president, and thought he had his own agenda -- to control the stargate. (Inauguration)

He came back for more meetings with Kinsey and Woolsey to provide a balancing point of view. (Inauguration)

He wasn't happy that Hammond hadn't been invited to meetings that questioned the integrity of his command. (Inauguration)

After doing his best to convince the president of the importance of leaving the SGC alone, at least until they could find the Lost City, he wasn't particularly happy to hear that the president was taking political considerations into account, as well. (Inauguration)

When a troubled Woolsey came to him with vague allegations that Kinsey was probably involved in something unsavory, Maynard called him on it, telling him that if Woolsey believed there was proof out there, he should find it. (Inauguration)

Present (but silent) at an Oval Office meeting with Hayes, Hammond, and Kinsey, later joined by USAF General Jumper, regarding the imminent threat of an attack by Anubis. (Lost City, part 2)

He took the call (on the red phone) in the Oval Office from the captain of the USS Spruance, a destroyer in the Nimitz battle group. The captain reported that a beam came out of the sky with no warning, sending the carrier up in a giant fireball while he was on the line, he reported that another cruiser just blew up, then the radio went silent. The engagement had begun just five minutes earlier, from one Goa'uld ship. (Lost City, part 2)

General Ryan

4-star general, and the Air Force member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. (Prodigy)

Visited the SGC to promote the establishing of a permanent research facility on MC4-862 and terrified (in a good way) Jack with his mere presence during Prodigy.

He was very amused/sympathetic toward Hammond for having such a handful as Jack under his command. (Prodigy)

(Outside the SG universe, General Ryan was in fact the actual Air Force Chief of Staff, from October 1997 through September 2001, and was chief of staff during the filming of the episode.)

Major/Lt. Colonel Bert Samuels

Started out as Hammond's Exec. in Children of the Gods, but got bumped up to the Pentagon.

Worked Stargate Mission Analysis and was occasionally liaison between SGC and Pentagon.

Promoted to lieutenant colonel by Politics.

He was the person who gave Senator Kinsey a (probably highly biased against) briefing about the SGC, to fill him in on all the details, and accompanied Kinsey to the SGC for the 'hearing' Kinsey conducted, which resulted in the (temporary) shutdown of the program. (Politics)

Proved himself a weaselly, arrogant coward during Serpent's Lair.

Very likely suggested to the Joint Chiefs that the best move was to not do anything in terms of mobilizing forces while the Goa'uld ha'tak vessels were approaching the planet, so the Goa'uld wouldn't know Earth had been warned. (Serpent's Lair)

He wanted to use a pre-emptive strike against the Goa'uld, using a new weapon -- a naquadah-enhanced Mark 12A warhead. (Serpent's Lair)

The enhanced warhead yielded in excess of 1,000 megatons. (Serpent's Lair)

He oversaw its development at Area 51 with Colonel Maybourne. (Serpent's Lair)

He had two prototypes ready for launch at Vandenberg AFB. (Serpent's Lair)

He truly believed that these weapons -- which he called 'Goa'uld Busters' -- would be enough to utterly defeat the two Goa'uld vessels. (He was completely wrong.) (Serpent's Lair)

After his plan utterly failed, he asked Hammond to be sent through the stargate to the alpha site. Hammond denied permission, insisting that Samuels stand and fight along with the members of the SGC. (Serpent's Lair)

Major John Sheppard

Has flown the Apache, Black Hawk, Cobra, and Osprey helicopters,  possibly  in  training  for  his  assignment  to  the  Antarctic. (SGA: Rising pt 1)

Links go off-site to Air Force informational pages about each helicopter.

It's not clear if he was Army or Air Force -- his wings looked Air Force to me, but those are all helicopters, suggesting an Army pilot. If he was Air Force, it's not clear if he was strictly a helicopter pilot, or if he flew regular fighers/craft as well. (SGA: Rising pt 1)

He picked up a black mark on his record for something that happened in Afghanistan -- he disobeyed a direct order to save the lives of three servicemen. (SGA: Rising pt 1)

The Antarctic was the one continent he hadn't been to -- he made it there eventually, and was the pilot assigned to fly Jack (by helicopter) to the Ancient outpost. (SGA: Rising pt 1)

He'd never even heard of the stargate or the SGC, never mind the Ancient outpost itself. Jack gave him security clearance to enter the facility after they'd nearly been shot down, and his first exposure to alien technology (other than almost being shot down...) was when he sat in the Ancient command chair and activated it. (SGA: Rising pt 1)

He appeared to be a true natural talent at Ancient technology -- it responded very strongly to him, seemingly as strongly as to Jack when Jack had the Ancient database in his head helping things along. (SGA: Rising pt 1)

When Weir asked him to join the expedition to Atlantis, he hesitated. Jack snarked at him for it, saying anyone who didn't want to go through the stargate was just as whacked as someone who didn't want to fly (Sheppard had just told him that anyone who didn't want to fly was crazy). Jack told him that if he couldn't give him a yes by the time they hit McMurdo, Jack didn't want him anyway. (SGA: Rising pt 1)

It looked like he did indeed give a yes -- he wound up back in the States while the Atlantis expedition was assembling, rather than staying in Antarctica. But he still wasn't positive about it -- he was flipping a coin to check the outcome. (SGA: Rising pt 1)

He liked it in Antarctica. (SGA: Rising pt 1)

He thinks people who don't want to fly are crazy. (SGA: Rising pt 1)

Colonel Frank Simmons

Part of the NID, recruited by Maybourne (48 Hours).

He and Maybourne 'go back'. (48 Hours)

Never wore his uniform, despite being a colonel -- he was always in a suit. (Ascension, Fifth Man, Desperate Measures, 48 Hours)

Secretary's name was Dolores. (Desperate Measures)

First appeared in Ascension as the voice of the Pentagon, insisting that the weapon found on P4X-636 be fired. (Ascension)

Was surprised to realize he couldn't intimidate/patronize Daniel. (Ascension)

Was amused to realize that Hammond thought that Hammond had the real power -- Simmons clearly had better-connected connections at this point. (Ascension)

He was anything but averse to spying on Sam to get the information he wanted, without telling Hammond he was doing so. (Ascension)

Had been sneaking into the base systems from outside (as user 4574), gathering information on all kinds of things, including SG-1's personnel records. (The Fifth Man)

Very possibly was the organizing force behind a complex scheme to get Maybourne to sell the Russians's captive symbiote to a private corporation, so that it could be implanted, all so he could take control of the Goa'uld after it was implanted in a host. The scheme involved the kidnap and possible death of Sam Carter. (Desperate Measures)

Whether he orchestrated it or not, he wound up taking the new Goa'uld and holding it captive, having made an unspecified deal with it to gain information -- all without SGC knowledge. In the process, he shot Jack. (Desperate Measures)

He managed to keep a lid on the fact that he shot Jack (Maybourne didn't know, despite his good connections). (48 Hours).

He was holding the nameless Goa'uld in North Dakota, somewhere near Minot AFB. (48 Hours)

When Teal'c got trapped in the stargate, Simmons moved fast to put himself in a better position of power. After talking to the Goa'uld, he went to Cheyenne Mountain and attempted to extort a Goa'uld hand device from Hammond, withholding information on how to rescue Teal'c if Hammond didn't pony up, apparently uncaring that this was effectively an admission that he had the Goa'uld, to those in the know. (48 Hours)

He was arrested on Hammond's orders after Jack found videotaped evidence of his collusion with the captive Goa'uld. (48 Hours)

Indirectly (I'm assuming, since he was in jail at the time) leaked information about an SGC-related project, Prometheus, to a reporter, Julia Donovan, from 'Inside Access' (a tv news show), saying it was a fusion reactor being built in the desert. He even gave her a piece of trinium and told her what it was (more or less). (Prometheus)

After his planted team (working as Donovan's camera crew) hijacked the X-303, they demanded that both Simmons and 'Adrian Conrad' be brought to them. Simmons clearly still had a source of information (as well as a way to contact former NID people) he knew who and what Jonas was. He'd made a deal with the Goa'uld inside Conrad -- Conrad's freedom in exchange for coordinates to an Ancient weapons-cache. Stealing the ship was his way of getting to the weapons. (Prometheus)

After he ordered the ship into hyperspace, Conrad rushed him. Simmons shot Conrad, killing the human host, but the symbiote escaped and fled into Simmons. From there, he attacked both Jack and Teal'c in a corridor, doing some damage to both. Jack opened the airlock and spaced him, killing both Simmons and symbiote. (Prometheus)

General Vidrine

3-star general (outranks Hammond -- Lt. General to Hammond's Major General) assigned to the SG program. (Tangent)

Incredibly dry sense of humor -- can outsnark Jack. (Tangent)

Visited the SGC again after SG-11 inadvertently stirred up a hornet's nest on P3X-403 by exploring too close to the local Unas's holy grounds. (Enemy Mine)

He agreed to let Daniel try negotiating (with Chaka's help), but authorized the use of deadly force to protect SGC personnel if the negotiations went badly. (Enemy Mine)

Once Daniel successfully made contact and Colonel Edwards reported the size of the naquadah deposit that SG-11 had found, Vidrine made it clear that he intended to relocate the Unas, either with their cooperation or by tranquilizing them and moving them without their knowledge or consent. (Enemy Mine)

Airman First Class Shep Wickenhouse

The sound guy working with Emmett Bregman while he was making his documentary about the SGC. (Heroes, part 1)

He and James did some digging to find out what had happened on the mission to P3X-666, and found out about the rescue (although they heard only about SG-1 and SG-5 going, not SG-7) and that one person was possibly dead. (Heroes, part 2)

He was pretty shaken to see the film that Daniel had shot, first of Wells's screaming through his injury, then Janet's death. (Heroes, part 2)

He was present at Janet's memorial at the SGC, filming it to be part of the documentary. (Heroes, part 2)

Area 51

General info

aka the Groom Lake Facility, at Nellis AFB in Nevada

Has lots of labs working on different things, trying to reverse-engineer technology brought back from trips through the stargate. (Touchstone)

Run briefly by Maybourne (Bane, Touchstone), who used his access to the technology there to help set up a rogue NID group that ran unauthorized missions through the second stargate to gain technology (Touchstone, Shades of Grey).

Technology storage area (for small tech) consists of a room with an electronically locked and physically guarded door. Inside the room, there are lasers protecting a bank of drawers built into the wall to turn off the lasers, there's a hand scanner on a pedestal, allowing only authorized personnel in. Each drawer also has a number keypad (1-6) and another scanner/sensor -- to open it, you have to know the combination and have an approved thumb print. (Smoke and Mirrors)

In the two years since the Tok'ra provided the formula for the poison that kills Goa'uld symbiotes, Area 51 was modifying and manufacturing in it the greatest possible quantities, to be used as a defensive weapon. As of early 2004, there was enough to negate a sizable force. Reynolds said there was enough to neutralize and invade three Goa'uld-occupied planets. (Zero Hour)

The poison is non-persistent, leaving only a limited time before reinforcements become a factor. (Zero Hour)

The poison still kills Jaffa as well as Goa'uld. (Zero Hour)

The Trust somehow got hold of a fairly substantial supply of modified symbiote poison, either by stealing actual poison or stealing the formula and creating their own. (Endgame)

Security at Area 51 was significantly tightened after the repeated loss of technology from the base -- the second stargate (Touchstone) and the Foothold mimic devices (Smoke and Mirrors) at a minimum. No one is allowed to bring anything in or out, not even their street clothes (also included cell phones, etc.). All personnel are thoroughly searched and scanned any time they leave. (Endgame)

The room(s) that stored small items (in drawers electronically locked into the walls) had increased security as well -- a hand scanner was installed in the middle of the room where Osiris's wrist device was stored, and the drawer wouldn't open without handprint authorization. (Endgame)

As of early 2005, Sam was head of R& D at Area 51. (Avalon part 1)

top | Area 51



A mix of military (NID) and civilian

Dr. Bricksdale

By his accent, he's British. (Endgame)

He had US$2 million stashed away in a Cayman Islands bank account. (Endgame)

At least one of his jobs at Area 51 was working on the wrist device left behind by Osiris, which she had used to remotely operate the Asgard beam technology installed on her al kesh. (Endgame)

Some time in mid- to late 2003, Hoskins of the Trust contacted him, confronting him with fairly complete information about the stargate program, Osiris, etc. He let himself be suborned (helped, no doubt, by the $2 million) by the Trust, working to get them technology.

He figured out how to make Osiris's wrist device work, entirely accidentally. He didn't report it -- he used the device to transport himself up and back from the ship several times, but always made sure that the device was safely back in storage before he left for the day, so no one found out. (Endgame)

He continued to report that he was working on the device to keep the project active, so that he could transport Trust operatives back and forth from the ship. After the Trust got Daniel to give them the translated command codes for the ship, they no longer needed Bricksdale's help. He sabotaged the adaptor he'd been using and declared the project a failure. It was shelved, and no one was ever the wiser. (Endgame)

He was more a flunky than a part of it, though, and got very nervous when Sam and Daniel arrived to start asking him questions about Osiris's wrist device. He called his Trust contact to set up a meeting to tell him he wanted out because it was getting too dangerous, never stopping to think that the SGC might have put him under surveillance. (Endgame)

He was captured  and brought back to the SGC for questioning. (Endgame)

Daniel did the questioning, finally sending the SFs out of the room to tell Bricksdale that he really needed to cooperate, because he was their only link to the missing Carter and wasn't exactly going to be walking away from this clean. Bricksdale kept saying, very distraughtly, that 'they'll kill me' -- right up until Daniel made it clear that the SGC knew about his Caymans account, and were prepared to ignore it. Bricksdale started cooperating after that, suddenly looking much more confident. (Endgame)

He explained what had happened to the wrist device, adding that all the Trust had needed to make the rest of the ship operational was the command codes that Daniel had translated for them (when Krista was being held hostage in Affinity). (Endgame)

He agreed to return Osiris's original device to working order, and did so. (Endgame)

Dr. Dobson

No idea who he or she was -- this was a name called over the paging system. (Touchstone)

top | Area 51 personnel | Area 51

Dr. Healey

One of the eight scientists assigned to study and recreated the Foothold mimic devices. The project produced some devices, but they only worked for 3-4 minutes at a time, so most of the scientists were reassigned. (Smoke and Mirrors)

Healey, Dr. Brent Langham, and Dr. Singh were the only three still assigned to the mimic devices, but after another six months of failed efforts, the project was scrapped. Healey was transferred to the X-303 project. (Smoke and Mirrors)

top | Area 51 personnel | Area 51

Dr. Brent Langham

PhD in astrophysics, according to the bio that Teal'c and Jonas found. (Smoke and Mirrors)

An epileptic, who needs to take regular doses of anti-convulsants.   (Smoke and Mirrors)

He was one of the eight scientists assigned to study and recreated the Foothold mimic devices. The project produced some devices, but they only worked for 3-4 minutes at a time, so most of the scientists were reassigned.   (Smoke and Mirrors)

Dr. Healey, Dr. Langham, and Dr. Singh were the only three still assigned to the mimic devices, but after another six months of failed efforts, the project was scrapped.   (Smoke and Mirrors)

All three were transferred to the X-303 project, but Langham was supposedly in a car accident three days before the transfer went into effect.   (Smoke and Mirrors)

The body in the car was burned beyond recognition, identified through dental records. In reality, Langham stole the devices, replacing them with fakes, then faked his own death.   (Smoke and Mirrors)

According to what he told the SGC, he brought the real devices to Washington, for 'the Committee', a group of powerful businessmen who've hired the rogue NID to help them get alien technology to incorporate into their product lines, investing hundreds of millions of dollars in hopes of a return in the billions. (Smoke and Mirrors)

At least ten new patents had been filed using alien technology, including industrial chemicals, metallurgy, computers, and more. (Smoke and Mirrors)

In return for this information and some names, Langham demanded protection, and was accordingly sent off-world where the NID couldn't get to him. (Smoke and Mirrors)

top | Area 51 personnel | Area 51

Dr. McKay

Civilian scientist (probably astrophysicist -- appears to consider himself Sam's better in her field). (48 Hours)

As a child, wanted to be a concert pianist. After he was told he had no shot at it (technically capable, but no feel for the music), he switched to science. (Redemption, part 2)

He's deathly allergic to citrus. (48 Hours)

Believed Sam to be reckless and unsafe in her methods. (48 Hours)

While (eventually) impressed with Sam's scientific 'artistry' (which he believes he lacks, just as in music), he had no compunctions about yelling at her and calling her a lunatic quite publicly if he thought she'd come up with something dangerous or stupid. (Redemption, part 2

Had been studying the stargate program at Area 51 for more than a year as of 48 Hours, so probably began sometime in 1999.

With no access to a working stargate (and clearly no contact with the scientists who were working on the real gate, since Sam didn't know him at all when she met him), he was working with a virtual model that was built when the second gate was at Area 51 (leading to the question of when exactly it was built, and by whom, since the gate was originally supposed to have arrived sealed up, and the second time it was sealed almost immediately with SG-1 in attendance). (48 Hours)

The Pentagon considered him the world's foremost expert on the stargate. (48 Hours)

He was on the Air Force payroll, not the NID's or directly on Colonel Simmons's. (48 Hours)

Reported directly to the Air Force Chief of Staff (which would have been General Ryan at the time). (48 Hours)

Because of his belief that that the energy itself holds the signature of everything passing through a wormhole, he believed that once that energy began to dissipate the person/object was dead, couldn't be successfully reintegrated. (48 Hours)

Consequently, he told the Pentagon that Teal'c couldn't possibly survive being trapped inside the stargate for longer than 48 hours, and thus ensures that they will not extend the deadline for any reason. (48 Hours)

After he made enough of a nuisance of himself and Hammond had Simmons arrested, Hammond assigned McKay to Russia, to supervise the development of Russia's naquadah generator program. (48 Hours)

He returned to the SGC to help with figuring out how to shut down the stargate when Anubis had locked it open, on Pentagon orders. (Redemption, part 1)

Was assigned to the Ancient outpost to study the Ancient technology there and try to figure out how to make it work, or interface with current tech.  (SGA: Rising pt 1)

Had a cat.  (SGA: Rising pt 1)

When he joined the Atlantis expedition, he gave the cat to his neighbor to care for. (SGA: Rising pt 1)

Dr. Larry Murphy

Probably joined in late 2001 or 2002 -- had heard of the problems with the X-301, but wasn't around for them. He headed the research and development of the X-302 (and can hold his own against snarky Jack). (Redemption, part 1)

Major Reynolds

Part of the research team at Area 51. (Touchstone)

He was SG-1's guide when they visited the facility in search of news about the Touchstone, and was pretty excited to meet them. (Touchstone)

He was eventually promoted to colonel and transferred to SGC where he was put in command of SG-16. (Ascension).

See Major Reynolds for more details of his time with the SGC.

All technology brought back through the stargate is sent to Area 51 for study and research.


Medical research lab working on potential cure for Alzheimer's that SG-5 brought back from an unnamed planet. (Touchstone)

Other divisions include bio research, geology, space metallurgy, and artifact study. (Touchstone)

Artifact study lab was poring over Daniel's notes on Heliopolis. (Touchstone)

Ancient database

The actual head-grabber device that downloaded the Ancient repository of knowledge into Jack's head in Fifth Race.(Lost City, part 1)

The engineering team that studied the original Ancient database technology found nothing after six months of research. (Lost City, part 1)

Sam believed that the device's power source was depleted after Jack activated it. (Lost City, part 1)

Developed over two years from the formula given by the Tok'ra. (Zero Hour)

As of early 2004, there was enough to negate a sizable force. Reynolds said there was enough to neutralize and invade three Goa'uld-occupied planets. (Zero Hour)

Mark-12A warhead

After SG-5 brought back a small amount of raw naquadah sometime in mid-1997, colonels Maybourne and Samuels oversaw the development of a naquadah-enhanced Mark-12A warhead, yielding in excess of 1,000 megatons. (Serpent's Lair)

Mimic devices

The mimic devices: from the Foothold aliens, left behind.

Stored at Area 51 along with the big scanner from the alien Foothold (Foothold) situation. (Smoke and Mirrors)

Twelve were recovered after the explosion, including the devices used to mimic Jack, Daniel, Janet Frasier, and Major Davis. They were kept under very tight security even the mention of the incursion had been wiped from all records. Only eight people had authorized access to them over the years. Research into how they work was progressing, but slowly Area 51 spent some time working on developing similar items, but they could only function for a few minutes at a time, due to problems with electromagnetic interference. (Smoke and Mirrors)

Quantum mirror

The quantum mirror that Daniel discovered in There But For the Grace of God is stored at Area 51 (Point of View).

Hammond wanted it destroyed after the events of Point of View -- that may well have happened, since as of mid-eighth season it's never been seen/used again.

Remote transporter control

The wrist device Osiris had used to remotely activate the beam technology installed on her al kesh. (Endgame)

Dr. Bricksdale said he couldn't get it to work: it was not only keyed to naquadah in the blood, but to specific Goa'uld DNA (not clear if this means Osiris's DNA, or just specifically Goa'uld elements in the DNA, such as specific chromosomes not shared by humans/mammals). (Endgame)

According to Hoskins, the device only let one person beam up at a time. (Endgame)

Second stargate

Stored at Area 51 (Solitudes, Touchstone, Nemesis) until it was transferred to SGC when Jack transported the original stargate up to Thor's ship (Nemesis). Thereafter, the Russians salvaged the original gate and SGC has continued to use the second gate as the primary one.

See 'second stargate'

Time machine

No one at Area 51 had been able to engage the time device in the ship that SG-1 found on Maybourne's world -- they were barely able to get the ship off the ground. (Moebius part 1)

The data logs made it clear that the time device only worked for jumps longer than a couple hundred years. (Moebius part 1)
