My choice is that of Janet Fraiser. She was one of my most favorite characters and I could have seen her being involved in all the later episodes and maybe even in Atlantis. So very sad at her departure. And I really didn’t think her “funeral” scene was all that great. The gathering of the troops in the Gateroom was fine, but I think there could have been something bigger than that as a send off for her. Plus, I felt that Cassie should have been there in at least one scene.

When Beckett left I was upset. When Dr Weir left I was mad. I couldnt watch anymore.

Mine was Daniel Jackson, hands down. Yah he comes back, but that didn’t make the death any easier to take. I didn’t mind Jonas. But still when I watch that season, it feels like something is missing. Second would be Carson Beckett. He was the heart of Atlantis, and him leaving left a hole, that was never really filled.

I don’t know why SG: Atlantis was discontinued after only 5 years. Total discontinuity leaving the city overlooking San Francisco harbor. Also what did they do with the wraith “Todd”? Too many loose ends…

You forgot one other cast member that was killed off by the replicators. Thor was the Supreme commander of the Asgarddean fleet, but the replicators took out his race.

It will never be the same with Jack. That was the fundamental loss.

The death of Jacob Carter/Selmac stung quite a bit. But so did a number of others NOT mentioned in this article: Egeria and the Tok’ra who sacrificed herself for her queen, Kanan, Martouf, Sha’re, the Reetou known only as “Mother,” Kianna (the Kalownan and her Goa’uld symbiote who sacrificed themselves to save the planet), Dr. Kieran (Jonas Quinn’s former professor), the death of John Sheppard in the “Vegas” episode of SGA… The list goes on and on.

I missed Jack the most. I loved his humor and the way he and Daniel interacted in their disagreements just by the way they said each other’s name. I stopped watching the show after he left.

Oh Janet for sure. Men don’t cry, so I must have spilled sea water on my face that night. And yes, the funeral was not enough, but that was the point. She’s gone, gone, gone. Nothing’s gonna bring her back. Lol, except for Samantha Carter, with an impossible scheme to raid a parallel universe for a ZPM…

Finally, something I’ve written earlier than GateWorld. https://azotodikfaj.wordpress.com/2017/10/23/hires-tavozok/

Very similar list, though. :D

Janet Fraiser’s death left me bereft and bitter. No matter the platitudes, her death both was unrealistic and unhonored. What has plagued me from the beginning was that she was sent into the fray in the first place. The cardinal rule, as laid out in the preceding years, was broken for ratings both real, and fictional. As CMO, she was to be kept safe, to be ready for the wounded as they were returned home. She would be waiting. I have to wonder if the impetus for her being tossed into a war zone, was to appease the documentary’s filmmakers…fulfilling… Read more »

“Beyond the loss of such a beloved character, what disappointed me the most, perhaps overshadowing the ultimate goal of her death, was the utter dismissal of Janet Fraiser. Other than an alternate’s appearance in The Ripple Effect, she was never mentioned again. Ever. She was never remembered fondly, mentioned as a loss deeply felt, or revered as the tenacious, stalwart healer she became. Her name wasn’t listed among regretted decisions, nor of opportunities lost. Did Cassie graduate, perhaps as valedictorian, and speak of her mother with pride? The true grief of Janet Fraiser’s death-that she was…forgotten.”

THANK. YOU.

The one with the most impact for me was Heroes (pt1 and 2)… the entire writing for that story was fantastic. The emotions that existed for the entire scenario, not only the death/reactions to the death, were laid together fantastically. Then there was the goodbye for Beckett in “Sunday” … it just… *sob*.. it was too much. Saying goodbye to a friend is hard, just as this episode’s ending beautifully portrayed. The rest were not bad, just felt …. a part of the story, and not as jarring (as though it was lead up to). Those 2 described above were… Read more »

SG-1 missed a terrific opportunity to incorporate Origins flashbacks with Ellie Gall as Catherine Langford and use it as a springboard for an Origins major motion picture. Hollywood,m when I was a kid considered a show a success if it was renewed for season two. Nowhere before has a series gone on for ten or eleven years.

If you like the Stargate series look forward to my new book SHEBA coming in 2020. IN THE DESERT, THE LINE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH; IS SHARP AND QUICK.

They really should have kept Jonas. And when they added Ms Black, well, that was very strange.

Janet Frazier was a big loss.
However so was Torri Higginson.
Stargate could have done so much with her character(Dr. WEIR) but they missed a great Opportunity.

Reading this article I get the impression that it was Sci Fi channel that ruined the show and Atlantis later… They should have kept Jonas especially I liked the Jonas-Janet relationship was developing well… I guess they didn’t have the money for Corin and Michael so that hurts the most for me to have developed this character Jonas and then cut loose it makes you wonder how they will treat the other actors? Overall the Mitchell character was redundant in S9 they should have had Sam, Daniel, Teal’c, Jonas in S8-S9 with Mitchell as two-parter or recurring only. Then Vala… Read more »

They ruined Stargate by killing Janet. She was my favorite character. Jack was my second favorite. They should’ve developed on the Daniel/Janet relationship. Now Death Knell is my last episode in EVERY rewatch, still pissed at Cooper for ruining the show!

Just a lousy honorable mention when it was the start of the show going downhill? Heroes literally killed the show.

Janet for me. I still wish I had Stargate to watch every Friday night. The charecters all became family that I just had to catch up with every week. Meeting many of the cadt members at our conventions here in CO has been a joy. All of them are warm, lovley people.
