Anthropologist, member of SG-9 alongside Captain Jonas Hansen and Conner. Initially Frakes followed with Hansen in allowing the natives of a sun-poisoned planet to believe that the team was gods. But after Hansen began believing it himself, he and Conner attempted to escape. He bought Conner the few precious moments he needed to contact Earth while he himself was shot down by a native dart.
Not long after, Frakes was taken before Hansen and killed. His body was burned, leaving his dog tags as the only way to identify the corpse.
The First Commandment - Frakes and Conner attempt to escape to Earth, but Frakes is captured and dragged back to Hansen where he is killed and later burned.
