SG-1 Team

Col./Gen. Jack O'Neill - Jack O'Neill was the irreverent but heroic leader of SG-1 from its inception until his promotion to Brigadier General. Escaping the death of his son, he was on the original expedition to Abydos with Daniel Jackson. Once Daniel returned, O'Neill formed SG-1 and led it for seven years until, against all probabilities, he was promoted to be commander of the SGC. After a successful year, he was promoted again, to Major General, and now heads the Department of Homeworld Security at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.
Dr. Daniel Jackson - Dr. Daniel Jackson is an archaeologist and linguist, an expert in ancient writing systems, languages and cultures. He is the intuitive genius who found the key to unlocking the Stargate and also made Stargate Command possible through his excavation of the Abydos Cartouche. He has been a member of SG-1 since its inception, except for his year as an ascended being. He is devoted to finding a weapon to use against the Ori, who learned of our galaxy from him.
Capt./Maj./Lt. Col. Samantha Carter - Dr. Samantha Carter is a brilliant Astrophysicist and an officer in the U.S. Air Force. As one of few who understand how the Stargate works, she was selected to join SG-1 as a Captain. She has since been promoted to Lt. Colonel and was given command of SG-1 while O'Neill led the SGC. She transferred to Area 51 for a time, but rejoined SG-1 under the command of Lt. Col. Cameron Mitchell when the Ori became a major threat to the security of the galaxy.
Teal'c - Teal'c is a Jaffa who was formerly the First Prime of the Goa'uld System Lord Apophis. When Teal'c met the humans of Earth, he saw that they had known freedom from slavery to the Goa'uld and decided to join them to fight against the false gods. He became the fourth member of the SG-1 team after its first mission to Chulak, Teal'c's homeworld. Teal'c is a warrior loyal to the Tau'ri even as he endeavors to help his brother Jaffa live in freedom.
Jonas Quinn - Jonas Quinn is a native of the planet Kelowna (now named Langara) and was the fourth member of SG-1 for a time, replacing Dr. Daniel Jackson, who had died and ascended saving Jonas's homeworld from a nuclear holocaust. Jonas had special talents that enabled him to be a quick study, and he vowed to continue the work Daniel had started. After Daniel retook human form and rejoined SG-1, Jonas returned to his planet.
Lt. Col. Cameron Mitchell - As a fighter jock, Lt. Col. Cameron Mitchell led an F-302 squadron in the battle with Anubis over Antarctica. He was gravely injured in the battle, protecting the lives of SG-1 as they gained access to the Antarctic Outpost and the Ancient weaponry. Mitchell was granted his choice of assignments after he recuperated. He chose to join SG-1 and was given command of the disbanded team. He works in tandem with Lt. Col. Samantha Carter, Dr. Daniel Jackson, and Teal'c.
Vala Mal Doran - Vala Mal Doran was a thief and con artist when she met Daniel Jackson aboard Prometheus. A year later, she found Daniel at the SGC, and together they accidentally exposed our galaxy to the Ori. Vala was impregnated by the Ori and bore a daughter, Adria. Vala is currently on probation at the SGC, trying to behave herself as she offers her knowledge and experience as a former host to a Goa'uld, an expert on the Lucian Alliance, and mother of Adria. Vala is married to Tomin, an Ori warrior currently serving Adria.

Stargate Command

Gen. George Hammond - Major General George Hammond was on his way to retiring when Apophis attacked the SGC. Suddenly the officer and gentleman from Texas found himself commanding one of the most significant endeavors in the history of the world: the Stargate Program. He led the SGC with wisdom and courage for seven years, when he was promoted to become the head of Homeworld Security on behalf of the United States. A year later he retired, and he now works for the President as an advisor.
Gen. Hank Landry - Major General Henry "Hank" Landry was hand-picked by Gen. Jack O'Neill to take his place as the commander of Stargate Command (SGC) after him. As a former Vietnam War fighter pilot, Landry is familiar with the challenges of war and has been said to have a sterner attitude than the previous SGC commanders. He has studied the generals of history and has memorized many of their quotes, using them to break the ice with tough alien leaders upon first meeting them.
Dr. Janet Fraiser - Dr. Janet Fraiser was the Chief Medical Officer at the SGC for over seven years, until her untimely death while on an off-world rescue mission. She saved many lives, sometimes more than once. She defended her medical principles as strongly as her patients, sometimes in contradiction to near-term mission goals. She was fiercely protective of her adopted daughter Cassandra, and she was Samantha Carter's best friend. The pain of her absence is keenly felt if not openly acknowledged.
Dr. Carolyn Lam - Dr. Carolyn Lam is a civilian physician assigned as the Chief Medical Officer of the SGC. She is also the daughter of Gen. Hank Landry. Described as stubborn by her father, Dr. Lam has a very no-nonsense and sometimes cold demeanor, though there are brief moments of a dry sense of humor. However, she also exhibits a great deal of concern for her patients, both at their bedsides and in her efforts to maintain their health.

Allies

Master Bra'tac and the Free Jaffa Nation - Bra'tac is Teal'c's friend and mentor and was once the First Prime of Apophis. He, along with Teal'c, led the Jaffa to their freedom and has become a highly-respected leader of the Free Jaffa Nation. He has joined the Tau'ri in the fight against the Ori and nearly killed himself and SG-1 in a suicide mission against them.
Thor and the Asgard - The SGC knows Thor as the Supreme Commander of the Asgard Fleet, a steadfast and brave ally who has saved SG-1 and Earth many times, just as the SGC has saved his 'little grey butt'. Thor is understated, patient, enigmatic, unsentimental and brutally honest. He has a fondness for the Tau'ri, especially for Jack O'Neill. He is an uncompromising warrior, and always puts the good of his people ahead of individual lives. He has been absent in the war against the Ori, as he is busy in another galaxy.
Jacob Carter and the Tok'ra - Father of Samantha Carter, Jacob Carter was a former USAF Major General when he was dying of cancer. Sam convinced him to live by becoming the host to a Tok'ra symbiote named Selmak. He became the chief liaison between the Tok'ra and the Tau'ri. Selmak was very aged, and both Jacob and Selmak died not long after helping defeat the Replicators by calibrating the Weapon on Dakara.

Current Enemies

Adria and the Ori - Adria is the human spawn of the Ascended Beings known as the Ori. She has all the knowledge of the Ori that a human brain can hold, yet because she is human, her existence does not violate the rules of the Ascended. Her mother is Vala Mal Doran, who was impregnated without her consent. Adria is the Orici, the human-form embodiment of the Ori, who leads the Ori's Priors and armies in their crusade to convert humanity into worshippers, and to destroy those who resist.
Netan and the Lucian Alliance - Netan is the leader of the Lucian Alliance, a coalition of former mercenaries and smugglers who have joined together to take advantage of the power vacuum left after the defeat of the Goa'uld System Lords. Though he joined the initial battle against the Ori, he has a personal grudge against the members of SG-1 because the team has been instrumental in thwarting many of his evil schemes.
Ba'al and the Goa'uld and The Trust - Known most for his torture of Jack O'Neill, Ba'al is the last remaining Goa'uld System Lord. He has created several clones and used them to rebuild his empire in the galaxy. Some of them have even become high-power corporate businessmen on Earth, through infiltration of the rogue group known as The Trust. He has a sense of fun that is unusual in a Goa'uld, but his ultimate aims are typically selfish and diabolical.
