Dr. Hutchison was a psychoanalyst who worked for Stargate Command. One of his duties was to give psychiatric evaluations for potential SGC employees. He was the one conducting Vala Mal Doran's psych evaluation, and became frustrated at her continued attempts to outwit the tests. When he attempted mild flirtation, Vala's response backfired as the polygraph machine revealed she did not find him attractive at all, despite her protests to the contrary. Later, Vala ranted at Hutchison with unusual and expressive candor in an SGC corridor, Hutchison realized Vala had potential as a team member and gave his approval for her to go on offworld missions.
