The latest commander of the S.G.C.
is Major General Hank Landry, a straight-talking and get-to-the-point military leader. Landry took over the position from Jack O'Neill
around the time that SG-1
disbanded, and its members moved on to new assignments. General Landry is impressed with how efficient the S.G.C. is and how good everyone is at the their jobs -- something he almost regrets because he likes yelling at the officers who report to him.
The General reports to the head of Homeworld Security and to the President. As the head of Stargate Command Landry is responsible for sending over 20 SG teams through the gate, and participating in diplomatic relations with other worlds. Among the first he met with was Gerak, head of the young Free Jaffa Nation.
Landry is a personal friend of General O'Neill. The two got together for a beer and a game of chess when Jack returned to Colorado Springs. He has at least one daughter, Carolyn Lam, who he says that she hasn't listened to him since she was 12. Landry's relationship with Carolyn was greatly improved when she came to Stargate Command to serve as the base's chief medical officer. After two years, and with her help, Hank even began to make peace with his ex-wife, Kim.
