SG-1 is the designation for the flagship team of the Stargate Command (SGC). Its history is the subject of the television series, "STARGATE SG-1".
During the pilot of the series, Children of the Gods, SG-1 was composed of three individuals made known to us:
Colonel Jack O'Neill
Dr. Daniel Jackson
Captain Samantha Carter
These individuals went to Chulak and became imprisoned by the Goa'uld System Lord Apophis. They were rescued by Teal'c, one of Apophis' First Prime Jaffa warriors. Teal'c helped all of the SGC personnel and their fellow prisoners escape Chulak and return safely to Earth.
At the conclusion of the episode Enemy Within, Teal'c was given the fourth position in SG-1, making it an unspecified standard that all SG teams would have four members.
Seasons Two Through Five
Captain Carter was promoted to Major in the episode Fair Game.
SG-1 remained composed of the same four individuals for the first five years of the series. However, in the episode Meridian, Dr. Daniel Jackson was exposed to a lethal dose of radiation which resulted from a lab accident on the planet Kelowna. Dr. Jackson was given the opportunity to ascend to a higher plane of existence by Oma Desala to escape death and to join the enlightened. He accepted this offer.
Several replacements were attempted to fill the void that Dr. Jackson left behind. Captain Hagman was the ninth recruit who tried to fill Dr. Jackson's shoes. The remaining members of SG-1 were not very welcoming of any person assigned to replace their fallen comrade, so they quickly booted the poor linguist out.
Through much persistence and Colonel O'Neill's dislike for the possibility of having a Russian teammate, Jonas Quinn joined SG-1 in the episode Redemption Part 2. Jonas was a native of Kelowna, the very planet which was saved by Dr. Jackson's heroic sacrifice to prevent the radioative core of a bomb from going critical. The Kelownans were planning to use this bomb in a world war. Jonas was witness to Dr. Jackson's courage and after realizing that his government was not honorable in trying to blame Daniel for the accident, calling it sabotage, he defected to Earth, bringing a sample of the radioactive material naquadria with him in hopes that shield technology could be developed to protect his people from the Goa'uld.
Daniel watched over his fellow teammates while he was an Ascended Being. He was also a protector of the planet Abydos, the planet to which he and Jack first went through the stargate. Because Daniel's late wife Sha're and her family and people were Daniel's adoptive family, he had a strong tie to them. He and Jack had helped free the Abydonians from the Goa'uld System Lord Ra. When the Goa'uld System Lord Anubis threatened Abydos, Daniel attempted to protect them, but the cost was very high. He was returned to human form and left without his memory, deposited on a planet which had a village come to be known as Vis Uban. When SG-1 went to this planet thinking that it might be the location of The Lost City of the Ancients, the existence of which Daniel had discovered from a tablet he found on Abydos when Anubis was attacking, they found Daniel living among the nomads. He had no memory of who he was and had taken the name Arrom, meaning naked one. Jack and Sam convinced him to come home with them to discover his identity and past and, after deep consideration, he decided to go with them back to Earth. Soon, he was given a position back on SG-1, making him a fifth member of the team for a short while.
Daniel joined Jonas on a mission to destroy the advanced weapon Anubis possessed on his mighty ship. They were sent to hack into Anubis' computer system, coded in one of the oldest dialects of the Ancients' language. Daniel was versed in this language and Jonas had a working knowledge of it. They were successful in getting into the computer and the weapon was destroyed, but in their attempt to get off of the ship, Jonas was captured. Daniel worked at getting him free and together they were able to escape to Kelowna where Anubis' ship was stationed over the capital city of Jonas' nation. They were aided by other System Lords, at Teal'c's bidding, to destroy Anubis' ship, but, unknown to them at the time, Anubis escaped. Jonas was asked to return to his homeworld as representative on their now-united world's council to educate them on the Goa'uld threat.
Jonas' departure from the SGC meant that SG-1 returned to the four-member team of Colonel Jack O'Neill, Dr. Daniel Jackson, Major Samantha Carter, and Teal'c.
