Character Bio

Dr. Daniel Jackson photo
Daniel Jackson (seasons 1–5 and 7–10 main, season 6 recurring) – A brilliant Egyptologist whose farfetched theories about pyramids led to his participation in the original Stargate mission in the feature film (where he was played by James Spader).

He joins the SG-1 team in the search of his kidnapped wife in the pilot episode, but his naïveté and curiosity regularly creates obstacles for the team. He gradually evolves from being an archaeologist and translator into the moral conscience for the team, and remains part of SG-1 until he ascends to a higher plane of existence at the end of season 5.

Following his forceful de-ascension at the beginning of season 7, he rejoins SG-1 for the remainder of the series. The last three seasons show his flirty yet antagonistic relationship with Vala Mal Doran. Daniel also appears in both direct-to-DVD films and in seasons 1 and 5 of Stargate Atlantis. He appeared in the pilot episode of Stargate Universe and is confirmed for the third SG-1 film.
