Vidrine2.jpg

A competent and no-nonsense U.S. military officer, Lieutenant General Vidrine oversees Earth's interstellar spacecraft development program. He supervised the failed first flight of the X-301 Interceptor. Not pleased with Jack O'Neill's sense of humor, he paid little attention to the Colonel's handling of the situation, though he was impressed with potential that the X-301 initially demonstrated.

General Vidrine is probably stationed at the Pentagon, and has occasional dealings with the Stargate program, on a special projects basis. He was placed over the BC-303 construction program, the first stage of which was to locate a rich naquadah mine to supply raw material for building a fleet of interstellar battle cruisers for the defense of Earth. This became Vidrine's top priority, and he was not unwilling to relocate a tribe of Unas who stood between the S.G.C. and the mine.

Under Vidrine the program eventually produced the Prometheus, Daedalus, Odyssey, and several other Daedalus-class deep space carriers.
