"Don't get me wrong, I like crazy. That's why I signed up for this job!"
—Cameron Mitchell

Cameron Mitchell, or Cam is the current leader of SG-1, having been in the role since 2005 after taking over from Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter. He was a talented United States Air Force pilot where he was given the callsign "Shaft", and led forces in the Battle of Antarctica in 2004, where he was grievously injured.

After recovering, he requested to join SG-1, only to discover the other members, Carter, Teal'c and Dr. Daniel Jackson, had all left the unit to follow different paths. However, after a few months, he eventually got the team back together. For most of his time as commander of SG-1, he fought the Ori, as well as the Goa'uld, particularly Ba'al.

He was promoted to full-bird Colonel in 2008 and continues to lead SG-1 to this day.

BiographyEdit

Background informationEdit

Young Mitchell

A ten year old Mitchell.

Cameron Mitchell was born in 1970 to Frank and Wendy Mitchell. He grew up in Auburn, Kansas, and had at least one brother, who was younger. He also had a grandmother, who was a very devout Christian, and was described by Mitchell as a "Bible thumper"; she often taught him several religiously-related stories, though Mitchell often just nodded his head until she gave him macaroons. His grandfather was the Captain of the Achilles, which transported the Stargate from Egypt to the United States in 1939, to prevent the Nazis from getting their hands on it at the brink of World War II. His father was a test pilot. However, one day one of the tests cost Frank both of his legs, almost killing him. He later began using prosthetics. Cameron decided to become a pilot, just like his father. (SG1: "Origin", "Collateral Damage", "Line in the Sand", "Continuum")

During High School, he was very infatuated with a fellow student, Amy Vanderburg. She was unaware of this, while Mitchell was unaware of her infatuation for him, even being oblivious to some signs, including dumping her boyfriend so Mitchell could ask her out to the prom, so he ended up not asking her out. In college, at the Air Force Academy, he took fencing but flunked it. He also learned to speak some Mandarin at some point. (SG1: "Avalon, Part 2", "Ripple Effect", "The Scourge", "Bounty")

He then became a pilot. While he was only a Cadet, he made friends with Bryce Ferguson, and both of them wanted to eventually join the Space Program. However, in 2002, Ferguson saved Mitchell's life, leaving himself injured by a piece of shrapnel, which lodged against an inter-cranial artery in his head. This later caused an aneurysm. While Mitchell was Captain, he was flying F-16s over the Middle Eastern desert. In one mission incident, he thought he was targeting insurgents, but, due to an error by local allied intelligence, he mistakenly bombed a vehicle full of innocent refugees rather than the enemy. This incident would haunt him with guilt and would cause him to even consider resigning his commission, but in the end he decided against it. (SG1: "Collateral Damage", "Stronghold")

Eventually, he joined the Stargate program and became an F-302 fighter-interceptor pilot and leader of Blue Squadron on the Prometheus, where he was given the callsign "Shaft". (SG1: "Avalon, Part 1")

2004Edit

Mitchell 302

Mitchell in the hot seat for the Battle of Antarctica.

Mitchell led a squadron of F-302 fighter-interceptors to hold off Anubis's forces during the Battle of Antarctica. His primary concern was the protection of SG-1, who gained access to the Antarctic outpost, where they found the weaponry powerful enough to destroy Anubis and his fleet. However, in the process, his 302 was hit twice by Death Glider and Al'kesh fire, the second time knocked out his co-pilot Lt. Adam Banks, and the 302 made a crash landing on the Antarctic ice, with Mitchell gravely injured. He was out cold when a swarm of Drone weapons destroyed Anubis's fleet. He was eventually found and was given the best care Earth had to offer. During his long recovery, President Henry Hayes awarded him the Medal of Honor, and he was promised any position in Stargate Command by Brigadier General Jack O'Neill. His chances of walking again were slim, but against all odds, he was able to walk again and eventually made a complete recovery. (SG1: "Lost City, Part 2", "Avalon, Part 1")

Cameron Mitchell

Cameron Mitchell looking at the Stargate for the first time.

After his full recovery, he requested to join SG-1, which Major General Jack O'Neill granted. Mitchell managed to read every mission report that the team filed, as he was given the highest security clearance. However, O'Neill didn't tell him that the rest of the team had moved on; Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter was transferred to Area 51, Teal'c chose to leave SG-1 and become a full-time member of the newly formed Free Jaffa Nation on Dakara, and Dr. Daniel Jackson requested to travel on the Daedalus to its next journey to Atlantis. He tried to convince the old SG-1 to resume their activities, but failed to do so. He realized that to lead SG-1 he would have to choose new team members, despite wanting the old team back. However, after the arrival of Vala Mal Doran caused Daniel Jackson to miss his flight, Mitchell managed to persuade Jackson, Teal'c and Vala to follow Vala's clues for Ancient treasure on Earth, and Jackson traced the clues to a cave underneath Glastonbury Tor, England.
Mitchell Knight

Mitchell fighting the holographic Knight.

After arriving there, Cam was trapped in a chamber with Teal'c, but solved a puzzle before the ceiling could crush them. He pulled the holographic Excalibur out of a holographic stone and managed to defeat a holographic Knight and uncover a mass of treasure, including a Long-range communication device, which later caused Jackson and Vala to have their consciousnesses transferred to the Alteran Home Galaxy. However, when the Ori found out about Jackson and the Milky Way Galaxy, Cam was ordered to assist SG-12 on P3X-421 to retrieve a Prior, and later found out the truth about the Ori and exposed the Prior, before the Prior set himself on fire. Cam later had Teal'c help him carry the communication device and destroy it by throwing it into the unstable vortex of a Stargate, which saved Jackson and Vala's life, as they were in the process of being burned for "heresy". (SG1: "Avalon, Part 1", "Avalon, Part 2", "Origin")

After Dr. Daniel Jackson and Vala Mal Doran collapsed again, even after the Kor mak bracelets were detached, Mitchell and the two needed help from Arlos Kadawam, but because of Vala's history, they had to take back Arlos' mother's necklace, by getting back a power coil from Inago and bringing Caius his Tel'tak back from the Lucian Alliance, where Mitchell posed as a bounty hunter. (SG1: "The Ties That Bind")

After a Prior attempted to get the humans of P8X-412 to worship the Ori, SG-1's attempts to denounced them failed after the Prior unleashed a plague, and Mitchell was one of those who was taken ill and almost died, if Dr. Daniel Jackson didn't convince the Prior that his team would leave. (SG1: "The Powers That Be")

After the loss of Vala Mal Doran, who was transported to the Alteran Home Galaxy after destroying the first Supergate at the Battle of Kallana, Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter eventually returned, and Mitchell managed to convince the team that since a new threat had arisen, the team reunited.(SG1: "Beachhead")

The first mission the newly reunited team had done was to track Ba'al, who was secretly hiding on Earth after the defeat of the Replicators and Anubis at the Battle of Dakara. Their hunt ended after they find cloning equipment, and Ba'al has disappeared from the face of the Earth. (SG1: "Ex Deus Machina")

Babylon

Mitchell fighting with Jolan on Kel shak lo.

He was once captured by the legendary Sodan on P9G-844, after he managed to have wounded Volnek, one of the strongest Sodan, though the rest of his people assumed he was killed. During Mitchell's recovery, he was trained for Kel shak lo, to fight another Sodan to the death. However, unknown to Mitchell, Jolan, his trainer challenged Mitchell after finding out he was Volnek's brother. Meanwhile, Mitchell discovered that the Sodan may have embraced Origin after a visit from a Prior named Damaris. He convinced Jolan enough that the Ori were not Gods, and so Jolan managed to drug him during Kel shak lo to give the illusion that he was killed in the fight. Jolan took him back to Earth, and since then, he still kept most of the Sodan fighting techniques on future missions. (SG1: "Babylon")

He and his team uncovered Khalek on P3X-584, after Stargate Command experienced trouble in actually dialing to the planet. After discovering that Khalek was not a prisoner, but rather an experiment of Anubis, he proposed killing him, or sending him back to the Stasis pod. However, the International Oversight Advisory wished to study him for a way to defeat the Priors somehow. Eventually, Khalek's power gained so much, that he escaped and planned to return to 584 to finish his evolution on the DNA resequencer and become the "second" Anubis. Fortunately for the Tau'ri, Mitchell and Dr. Daniel Jackson were able to kill him despite his powers. The little time spent studying Khalek actually provided the team with a means to fight the Priors by building a Prior disruptor. (SG1: "Prototype")

He was investigating an Ori plague which seemed to have infected two SG team members. He led the investigation, and discovered that containment has been breached, and the cases in the US grew rapidly. However, after learning that the same Prior from P9G-844 arranged this, he convinced the Sodan to help them, since they ignored the Prior's order to exterminate a peaceful civilization. After capturing the Prior, he was forced to kill after the Prior disruptor no longer had any effect on him. (SG1: "The Fourth Horseman, Part 1", "The Fourth Horseman, Part 2")

2006Edit

Mitchell Mind device

Mitchell being hooked up to the mind altering device.

He and his team traveled to Galar, the homeworld of the Galarans, who created technology to manipulate people's memories. He had a relationship with the head of the project, Reya Varrick. However, after he woke up, he found blood on his hands and discovered she was murdered. He also confessed to the crime and was arrested by Galaran authorities, but due to diplomatic relations, he was released. However, he chose to find the real murderer, as his memories were faked so the authorities would not turn to the real murderer. By using the same mind altering technology, he eventually found out that Marell, a member of the project, and Reya's ex-husband was the real murderer. However, the Galarans chose to ignore this, by altering Marrell's memories, believing Reya died in an accident. Mitchell was angered that there was no real justice to the murder and left, after his memory of Reya's murder was deleted. (SG1: "Collateral Damage")

After various SG-1s appeared from several Parallel Universes, Mitchell of this reality, as well as the team, particularly Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter eventually figured a way to stop more SG-1s from traveling to this Universe by using closing the breach responsible at a black hole. He worked with one alternate counterpart on board the Prometheus, who was revealed to be responsible. He and his team managed to trick the alternate SG-1 before they arrived in Atlantis to steal the Zero Point Module and protect their Universe from the Ori. (SG1: "Ripple Effect")

He later had some time off, and decided to see his old friend, Bryce Ferguson. However, despite being given the best possible care, the doctors could not remove the aneurysm. He caught up with his time with his friend, but after Bryce went suspicious that Mitchell is "fighting aliens", he decided to use the Galaran memory device to allow Bryce to see what he had been through since he joined the Stargate program. Mitchell apologized that his actions caused Bryce to slowly die, even thought Bryce himself told him not to be. He then left to participate in a mission to P2M-903 and rescue Teal'c, who was captured and may have been brainwashed by Ba'al. He found Teal'c and discovered that he was not brainwashed at all, and killed the Ba'al clone. (SG1: "Stronghold")

Shaft

Mitchell posing as "Shaft" to learn more about Kassa.

While investigating Kassa, a heavily addicted crop engineered by the Lucian Alliance, he and the team went to P6G-452, one of the major suppliers of Kassa, where he posed as a "drug dealer" known as "Shaft" to make a deal. However, after Worrel attempted to kill him, he and the team tried to escape, only to get captured again after Ba'al inconveniently stole the planet's Stargate. After a day of torture, he and his team were rescued by the new Earth ship, Odyssey the successor of the Prometheus, which was destroyed by the Ori satellite over Tegalus. They tracked down Ba'al's Ha'tak and retrieved all the missing Stargates, and escaped through one of them before the Lucian Alliance destroyed the ship. (SG1: "Ethon", "Off the Grid")

He and his team was later forced to look after a group of International Oversight Advisory delegates to the Gamma Site, where the R-75 bugs the personnel had been researching began taking over the surface. He managed to hold them off until Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter worked out a way to leave the planet alive, by contacting the Odyssey. (SG1: "The Scourge")

Both he and Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter were sent "out of phase" after accessing Arthur's Mantle, one of the devices from Avalon. Not being noticed by anyone else, He recalled the mission report on Dr. Daniel Jackson and the Crystal skull and attempted to talk with him, but Jackson did not notice them. While Carter tried to find a way back, Mitchell followed Teal'c to P9G-844, where he discovered the Sodan had been wiped out by a ravaged Volnek, who is using a Sodan Invisibility device to remain hidden. With the cloaking device, Teal'c was able to see Mitchell, and then thought of a plan to kill Volnek, by using A-M18A1 Claymore mines and lure Volnek to the location. However, in the process, Arthur's Mantle deactivated, though Teal'c assisted Mitchell from being killed by Volnek, before he was killed by the explosion. (SG1: "Arthur's Mantle")

Mitchell escaped Korolev

Mitchell narrowly escaping the Korolev's destruction.

After Vala Mal Doran returned to warn that the Ori were coming to the Milky Way via building another Supergate, SG-1 found Camelot to acquire a weapon capable of destroying ascended beings, (later known as the Sangraal), their attempts activated Merlin's security system, another holographic guardian. Mitchell attempted to dispatch it like he did with the one on Avalon. However, the guardian was more lethal and would have killed Mitchell, but was saved when Dr. Daniel Jackson had to shoot the control crystals that disabled it. After discovering that the Sangraal was nowhere to be found, Mitchell and Jackson were beamed on board the Korolev, a Russian 304 and was sent to the second Supergate, where the Ori went through and wiped out most ships defending the Milky Way. The Korolev was destroyed, but Mitchell narrowly escaped by flying an F-302 fighter-interceptor, where he was soon picked up by the Odyssey, he piloted the ship to retrieve Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter, and went with her, Teal'c and Bra'tac to stop the formidable Ori warships from taking Chulak. However, their attempts failed, though they were beamed aboard the Odyssey, including Jackson and Vala, who were on one of the ships and escaped. (SG1: "Crusade", "Camelot", "Flesh and Blood")

After Dr. Daniel Jackson discovered Vagonbrei, he took his team there to hopefully find the Sangraal, only to find it empty and everyone dead from a sleep parasite, which the locals called "Morgan's curse". The parasite infected the team including Mitchell, who was with Teal'c, looking through the caves. They are able to hear a lizard, which was unaffected by the sleep parasite, being the only known creature on the planet. They trap the lizard to find a cure for the parasite, but Mitchell was too fatigued to continue. After a hazmat team found Teal'c outside the caves, they found Mitchell, who was later cured, as well as his team, after examining the lizard. He then welcomed Vala Mal Doran to the team, as she was given clearance to do so. (SG1: "Morpheus")

Mitchell and Sheppard

Mitchell and John Sheppard in Atlantis.

A clue to find the Sangraal led the team to Atlantis, where he was on board the Odyssey, along with Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter and Dr. Rodney McKay to use one of Pegasus' black holes and a Stargate to dial a connection to the Supergate to prevent any more Ori warships from getting to the Milky Way. The mission was a success, and was given news by Teal'c that not only was a Hive ship was destroyed, but an Ori ship was destroyed as well. However, Dr. Daniel Jackson failed to find the Sangraal after Morgan Le Fay was taken by the Others. (SG1: "The Pegasus Project")

When Ba'al arrived on Earth via Al'kesh, he offered to help find the Sangraal in exchange that SG-1 kill his clones, who had apparently turned against him. SG-1 decide to capture them for information instead, and Mitchell interrogated one, where he claimed to have found a way if he is the real Ba'al or not; the real Ba'al wouldn't care about the guard while killing him. After a brainwashed Agent Malcolm Barrett freed one of the Ba'als, who held everyone on Levels 15 to 17, Mitchell led a team to free the hostages while Dr. Bill Lee planned to use canisters of symbiote poison, though most of the Ba'als escaped with all the Stargate address they have to find the Sangraal to defeat not only the Ori, but the Ancients as well. (SG1: "Insiders")

Poker

Mitchel plays poker with the rest of his team.

He later spent his time off with Major General Henry Landry alone in O'Neill's cabin. However, at the same time, interdimensional parasites from the Sodan Invisibility devices, which were used by The Trust to spy on Mitchell and Landry, terrorized the local hunters after taking the Minnesota wildlife as hosts. Fortunately, through tracking them, Mitchell and the team were able to dispatch them through plenty of firepower. He and his team found enough time to play several rounds of poker at the end. (SG1: "Uninvited")

He and the team were later asked by Martin Lloyd and Major General Jack O'Neill to overlook the script for a supposed movie version of Wormhole X-Treme!. Mitchell originally planned a zombie sequence, but after Lloyd thought that no one does this anymore as "zombies have been done to death", Mitchell lost interest in it, but still went through the meeting until he was able to celebrate his 200th trip through the Stargate, including leaving Earth, returning to Earth, and other times stepping through an event horizon. (SG1: "200")

Afterwards, he and his team went undercover as simple villagers on a planet enslaved by the Ori, and encountered an adult Adria, Vala Mal Doran's daughter. Suddenly, the planet was attacked by the Dakara superweapon, and they were beamed out before they were killed. He then led his team to recover the Ori warship on the surface, until discovering it was a Jaffa plot to commandeer the ship and use it to fight the Ori. Mitchell was stunned and captured by Bo'rel. When Adria was revealed to have survived, both the Jaffa and Mitchell worked together in a futile attempt to stop her and was beamed back on board the Odyssey before Adria destroyed the Dakara superweapon. (SG1: "Counterstrike")

Mitchell in pursuit

Mitchell pursuing Vala's captors on a freeway.

When Vala Mal Doran was captured by Athena and The Trust, Mitchell and his team went to find her. He commanded a team to storm one of several known Trust-operated warehoused, but his was empty. They discovered her in a Police station, but she was extracted by a Trust member posing as Carter before they arrived. Mitchell commandeered a motorcycle and pursued on the freeway, and found the car crashed by Vala. He was shot by one of the Trust members before he was killed, and was captured by Vala. Mitchell was held at a motel, trying to convince her she's one of his, though she doesn't believe him. He was later found by his team, who caught him with his pants down a second time. Eventually, Dr. Daniel Jackson convinced Vala, and welcomed her as part of SG-1. (SG1: "Memento Mori")

After the Lucian Alliance captured the Odyssey, and Vala Mal Doran and Dr. Daniel Jackson were also captured on a separate mission by the Alliance, Mitchell planned on posing as Kefflin, a close friend of Netan and get inside his circle. He used the Reol chemical to make Netan believe he was Kefflin, and since no one else saw his face, he went undetected. He discovered that Anateo has captured the ship for his own benefit. When Teal'c was captured, he also posed as his torturer, until he let him escape. When Netan and Tenat found the Odyssey to get Anateo to surrender, he also made Tenat believe he was Netan in an attempt to get the two Ha'tak vessels to fight each other; Tenat lost the battle. He was beamed on board the Odyssey, which was retaken by Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter and the crew. (SG1: "Company of Thieves")

When Adria gave Vala Mal Doran dreams on the location of the Sangraal, he and the team traveled to the Sangraal planet, but were quickly followed by Ori soldiers. He used the librarian Osric, who was Adria in disguise and a trapped Ba'al. When they found the mountain, Adria forced him to get the Sangraal, after passing Morgan's puzzles inside. When they unleashed a dragon, Mitchell planned to use C-4, make it swallow it, hopefully destroyed the dragon; Teal'c took his place, but it didn't work. It was stopped by Dr. Daniel Jackson saying "Ganos Lal" (Morgan Le Fay in Ancient). After they returned and experienced through Morgan's planetary circuit, Jackson sacrificed him mind to build a Sangraal, with Merlin's memories, compared the physical resemblance between Mitchell and Perceval. Mitchell confronted Vala and lectured to her that being a member of SG-1 is not about taking chances with their lives, but to witness fellow members doing it, and remarked that Vala was finally member of the team. When the Ori finally caught up, thanks to Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter and Ba'al's help, they were able to return to Earth, though Jackson was captured by Adria. (SG1: "The Quest, Part 1", "The Quest, Part 2")

2007Edit

Mitchell prepares

Mitchell awaits an Ori attack in the village of P9C-882.

Despite the loss of Dr. Daniel Jackson, he and the team used Arthur's Mantle in order to protect the people of P9C-882 from the hands of the Ori, by sending the village out of phase, but this breaks down before the Ori arrive. The solution came too late, and Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter was wounded, though Mitchell was able to kill him. Mitchell was able to hide the building they were in, and tended to Carter, who eventually found a way to save the village before it was wiped out. Mitchell was able to follow Carter's instruction by using an Ancient crystal power cell from a dead soldier's Ori staff weapon as an alternate power source. The plan worked, with the Ori fooled that the village was destroyed. He then baked some macaroons to a recovering Carter, but she didn't like his cooking. (SG1: "Line in the Sand")

A few weeks later, he witnessed Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter experimenting on Arthur's Mantle, and disappeared to an alternate reality. Thinking she was just stuck out of phase for two weeks before her return, Mitchell and the rest took shifts with Sodan Invisibility devices, though Mitchell decided not to tell her what he was talking about. (SG1: "The Road Not Taken")

When he eventually found Dr. Daniel Jackson, who was turned into a Prior of the Ori (albeit a peaceful, non-threatening one), he heard claims from Jackson that he was just getting Adria to trust him, so he could finish the Sangraal, disengage the Supergate from Pegasus and send an Ori warship to go into the Alteran Home Galaxy and destroy the Ori. Mitchell and the team boarded the mothership and shot their way through several soldiers. He and Vala Mal Doran finished completing the weapon, and after Jackson disabled Adria (he overrode the Prior disruptor, but she hadn't) he piloted the ship through the Supergate after they were beamed to the Odyssey (piloted by Major General Jack O'Neill). Not knowing it actually worked, he witnessed the Supergate activating, sending an addition six Ori ships to the Milky Way, making the total up to eight. (SG1: "The Shroud")

Mitchell and Amy

Mitchell together with Amy Vanderburg.

He and the team intervened in the Lucian Alliance distribution of Kassa by destroying three Kassa transport trains. On the third, he was met with resistance, but escaped before it was destroyed. Little did he knew, he was tagged with mild radiation, so he and the team could be tracked. This forced Netan to release a bounty on the team's heads. After destroying the trains, he earned some off time; he planned on using it to visit Auburn for his High School reunion. He was forced to take Vala Mal Doran with him, who had nothing to do. They went to his parents' home, where Vala feigned that she and Mitchell were involved in a sex-filled relationship. He also saw his old friend, Darrell Grimes and crush Amy Vanderburg (recently divorced from her husband) for the first time in years, where he learned that other than him having a crush on her, she had a crush on him. During the reunion party, he was discovered by bounty hunter Odai Ventrell, who planned to use him to lure the rest of the team. After this was foiled and captured Odai, Mitchell convinced him of an opportunity to be far richer; assassinating a weakening Netan and take his place. In the end, he and Amy finally shared a kiss, before leaving back to Stargate Command. (SG1: "Bounty")

After Dr. Daniel Jackson thought he'd found the location of the Clava Thessara Infinitas, the team traveled to P4M-328, where they find that their Stargate was a museum peace. Mitchell was forced to pretend they were members of the planet's growing terrorist faction, until they uncover a power source to return home. When they finally do, they were surrounded by the authorities, though Mitchell convinced Quartus who they were and to contact Earth if they feel they are ready for relations with Earth, though in the end the planet chose to bury their Stargate and "stick their heads in the sand." (SG1: "Bad Guys")

Sg1-s10e17-0

Mitchell attempts to stop Teal'c.

After a Jaffa settlement on Dar Eshkalon was bombed by Ori-aligned Jaffa, Teal'c set out to kill in revenge his old enemy Arkad, whom he believed was responsible for the attack. However, Arkad had already contacted Stargate Command and placed the blame on a radical group called the Illac Renin and offered to stop any attacks on Earth in exchange for the Tau'ri leaving the Jaffa on both sides alone. The International Oversight Advisory was concerned about the threat of an Ori/Jaffa fleet against Earth and tasked SG-1 with stopping Teal'c from killing Arkad. Once on the planet, Teal'c subdued the rest of the team with a stun grenade, and Mitchell was forced to fight Teal'c with his Sodan hand-to-hand combat techniques. Teal'c defeated him and made his way to Arkad, succeeding in killing his nemesis but taking severe injuries himself. Mitchell and the other members of SG-1, who had recovered from the stun grenade, rescued Teal'c and brought him back to the SGC where he recuperated. (SG1: "Talion")

Weeks later, when Vala Mal Doran's father, Jacek sought sanctuary on Earth, Mitchell monitored his activities, and realized that he attempted to con people numerous times, including hosting a teleshopping program for "stardust". When he discovered that Jacek set a deal with members of the Illac Renin, he and the team decided to con the con man, where they gave him a Tel'tak with nothing but lead bars instead of weapons-grade Naquadah. After this, Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter mentioned he was going out on a date. (SG1: "Family Ties")

Mitchell granted a mission to plant false memories in Vala Mal Doran so she can lure a fooled Adria to a planet so they can capture her. However, this failed when Ba'al's Jaffa arrived on the same planet to capture Adria, so Ba'al can implant one of his cloned symbiotes. Mitchell and the team arrived at Ba'al's Ha'tak to recapture Adria, and Mitchell killed the Ba'al responsible. The idea of replacing the symbiote within Adria to a Tok'ra have failed, and Adria ascended to control the Ori, since the Sangraal did indeed destroy them. (SG1: "Dominion")

After some time, he and the team went on board the Odyssey to visit the Asgard on Orilla, who announced that they are dying, and plan on giving their legacy (their latest technologies and historical records of the Asgard) to the Tau'ri before they destroyed themselves in a mass suicide. However, the Asgard technology on the Odyssey has alerted their position to Ori warships, who arrive just minutes after exiting hyperspace. Eventually, with the help of the team, who spent 50 years in a time dilation field, they disconnected the Asgard hyperdrive and escaped in time before being destroyed. After returning to Earth, Mitchell led a team on another mission to another planet. (SG1: "Unending")

Mitchell commands Odyssey

Mitchell commands the Odyssey on a mission to the Alteran Home Galaxy.

Sometime later, Dr. Daniel Jackson uncovered clues to the location of the Ark of Truth, a powerful Ancient device that has the ability to convince people the "truth" of what was programmed in it. The team went to the ruins of Dakara to search it, but the Ori Army, led by Vala Mal Doran's husband, Tomin arrived. Mitchell failed in his attempts to hold them off, but anticipating a Prior would support them, SG-1 activated a Prior disruptor; Mitchell managed to kill the Prior, and the soldiers surrendered. After returning to Earth, they learn that the Ark may be in the Alteran Home Galaxy. With the watchful eye of International Oversight Advisory agent James Marrick, Mitchell is granted to command the Odyssey to the Ori galaxy and retrieve the Ark. However, little did he knew, Marrick had a secret agenda; he used the Asgard computer core to rebuild a Replicator to infest the galaxy, hopefully sending the Ori to their knees. Enraged at Marrick's actions which would endanger the Odyssey and everyone on board, Mitchell sent Marrick to the brig. While Jackson, Vala and Teal'c attempted to stop the Ori, Mitchell attempted to stop the Replicators infesting the ship, while Ori warships were tracking the ship with the active computer core. Mitchell eventually found the Replicator Queen, but was distracted by Marrick, who had been infected and had also become a Replicator. After getting beaten by Marrick, Mitchell eventually momentarily disconnected the Replicators to Marrick, who tells him the code to shut down the Asgard computer was on the rear of his crystal. While the ship was attacked by the Ori, he was able to destroy the Queen, and Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter was able to shut down the Replicators. He later limped to the bridge and announced surrender to the Ori, but was denied. Fortunately, before they could be destroyed, Jackson, Vala and Teal'c activated the Ark of Truth, stopping the Ori once and for all. After returning to Earth, Mitchell recovered at the Stargate Command infirmary, and was given some of Carter's homebaked macaroons, and heard that the International Oversight Advisory wish to apologize to Mitchell. In the end, with the Ori threat over, he commanded another mission to P3K-546. (Stargate: The Ark of Truth)

2008Edit

Sometime after the Ori threat he was, together with good friend Samantha Carter, promoted to full Colonel and continued to be in command of SG-1 with Dr. Daniel Jackson, Teal'c and Vala Mal Doran. In 2008, he along with SG-1, Samantha Carter (who has now returned to SG-1 after being relieved of command at Atlantis), and Major General Jack O'Neill finally tracked down the last Ba'al clone and sent him to the Tok'ra homeworld, where they witnessed the Extraction Ceremony, which succeeded without incident in this reality. After the extraction of Ba'al succeeded, they returned to the SGC where Daniel and him pondered over what Ba'al meant about his "plan." As they leave the locker room, Mitchell closes the door to his locker, showing he has hung up a picture of his grandfather and his alternate version of himself together. (Stargate: Continuum)

Alternate realitiesEdit

The Two Ronnies

The alternate Mitchell wearing black.

  • In an alternate reality, Cameron Mitchell was the leader of an SG-1 who wore black uniforms, as opposed to the green ones. In 2006, he was ordered to travel through to our reality with the goal of obtaining a power source, namely a Zero Point Module, since theirs was depleted, leaving Earth unable to power the Ancients' Drone weapons against the Ori and therefore defenseless. That Mitchell pretended that he was confused about being sent to another reality, though at first acted as he believed that his SG-1 were a victims of a deception, since in his reality, several events, including the Hathor incident in 1999, and the Atlantis expedition being influenced by the energy beings of M5S-224 in 2004, had likewise occurred. Many additional alternate SG-1 teams also arrived. When the original SG-1 took steps to stop additional SG-1s from arriving, the alternateCAM led the operation to capture the Prometheus and steal the ZPM from Atlantis. Eventually, the original Mitchell outsmarted him, so his team was captured. The original SG-1 was able to use the alternate SG-1's methods to send the various SG-1s back to their own realities. Defeated, and before leaving, the alternate Mitchell told the original that, "When the time comes, cut the green one." (SG1: "Ripple Effect")
  • In another alternate reality, Cameron Mitchell was leader of an SG-1 - which consisted of Dr. Janet Fraiser, Dr. Daniel Jackson and Martouf/Lantash - who became stranded in this reality in 2006. In their reality, Earth was attacked by an Ori plague, though the team was given the anti-virus to combat it, since our reality had already combated the plague. In this reality, Brigadier General Jack O'Neill was still the commanding officer of Stargate Command. (SG1: "Ripple Effect")
  • In another alternate reality, Mitchell commanded SG-1 who wore Blue Digital Tiger Stripe uniforms. In 2006, he and his team were under heavy fire, and ended up in our reality. Eventually, he was sent back to his own reality. He spoke with a heavier Southern accent than the Mitchell of our reality. (SG1: "Ripple Effect")

  • In another alternate reality, Mitchell commanded an SG-1 who wore Digital Woodland USMC MARPAT uniforms. His teammates were Daniel Jackson, Samantha Carter and Teal'c, who unlike his counterpart in our reality was still bald. In 2006, he and his team ended up in our reality but were eventually sent home to their own. (SG1: "Ripple Effect")
AlternateHazmatSG-1

Mitchell from an alternate reality

  • In another alternate reality, Mitchell commanded an SG-1 who wore Hazmat suits. In 2006, he and his team ended up in our reality. While in the Stargate Command of our reality, he passed its versions of Daniel Jackson, Teal'c and General Henry Landry in a corridor. He turned around and smiled to himself before proceeding on his way. Like the other alternate SG-1s, his team was eventually sent back to their own reality. (SG1: "Ripple Effect")
  • In another alternate reality, Mitchell commanded an SG-1 who wore green jungle fatigues. In 2006, he and his team ended up in our reality but were eventually sent home to their own. (SG1: "Ripple Effect")
Alternate Mitchell

  • In another alternate reality to which Carter accidentally traveled with Arthur's Mantle in 2007, the public became aware of the Stargate Program during Anubis' attack on Earth. That Mitchell also crashed his F-302 fighter-interceptor, but unlike our reality, he didn't 100% recover. Initially, he was treated as a hero, even participating in a number of PR events. However, he eventually criticized the program for its martial law, and as punishment was given no more medical treatment. As a result, he was unable to walk again, and was confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. He became embittered and turned to drinking and became a shut-in in his apartment, where he would not have to worry about curfew or being detained without being charged by the increasingly fascistic government. (SG1: "The Road Not Taken")

Alternate timelinesEdit

Mitchell and Mitchell

  • In an alternate timeline, Ba'al changed history and massacred the Achilles crew in 1939, including Colonel Mitchell's grandfather so that he was never born. After Vala Mal Doran and Teal'c disappeared and Major General Jack O'Neill was killed during the Extraction Ceremony in 2008, he killed Ba'al, before the rest of the team gated to Earth. The wormhole protected them and they were sent to the Arctic, where the Achilles was sent to instead of the US. Eventually he was found by O'Neill and after a frustrating several day interview about the non-existent Stargate program in this reality, he was forced to split off from the team. He spent the next year working on a car and befriending some neighbors. In 2009, Ba'al, who conquered the other System Lords, arrived with his fleet over Earth. He reunited with the team, attempted to fly to Antarctica, somehow reach Taonas to acquire a Zero Point Module and power Earth's Control chair to wipe out Ba'al's fleet. However, Qetesh took control, killed Ba'al, and learned of his Solar observation outpost on Praxyon. SG-1 had a change of plan and used the Stargate on the Achilles, which was confiscated by the Russians. Ba'al's First Prime Teal'c eventually assisted them and gated to Praxyon. As Qetesh closed in, Mitchell held off her forces, Carter was able to find a solution, but would send them to 1929. He was the only one to gate through alive; Jackson, Carter and Teal'c were all killed. In our reality, he spent the next ten years preparing for the return of Ba'al. Finally in 1939, he boarded the Achilles, and got the help of a sailor named Bosun in the cargo hold by using his resemblance to his grandfather to confuse him. When Ba'al and his small Jaffa contingent came through the gate, Mitchell was able to kill the Jaffa, and he shot the final Ba'al in the head which killed him. Afterwards, he met his grandfather and the two apparently covered up the incident which led to them apparently became friends as the two are in a picture together on the correct Mitchell's locker (where before there was just his grandfather). He later lived his life until he died of old age sometime between 1939 and 2008. (Stargate: Continuum)

Personality and traitsEdit

Like his predecessor, Jonathan J. O'Neill and his Atlantis counterpart, Lieutenant Colonel John Sheppard, Mitchell is someone who takes his leader duties seriously and who like O'Neill and Sheppard believes that no one under his own command should be left behind.

RelationshipsEdit

Bryce FergusonEdit

Hank LandryEdit

Frank MitchellEdit

Cameron had a close relationship with his father . Though scared after first seeing his father after the test pilot accident, he smiled for his father and was embraced by his dad. Somehow, his father's attitude made him feel like everything was going to be okay. Mitchell's father was also his confidante after the F-16 incident that almost made Mitchell quit his commission. Mitchell keeps a picture of himself and his father in his locker at the SGC. (SG1: "Collateral Damage")

Lionel PendergastEdit

Mitchell served with the commander of the Prometheus at one time, presumably during his stint as commander of a squadron of F-302s. It was from Pendergast that Cameron's call sign of "Shaft" was revealed. Pendergast and Mitchell had a cordial relationship, with Pendergast even referring to him by his nickname "Cam". After Pendergast was killed in the destruction of the Prometheus, Mitchell made a point to go in person and extend his condolences to Pendergast's wife and children. (SG1: "Beachhead", "Ex Deus Machina", "Ethon")

Teal'cEdit

Raya VarrickEdit

Mitchell shared a mutual attraction with the Galaran scientist Dr. Reya Varrick . His interest was first noticeable by his team right after he had been implanted with a memory from the Emissary Varta. During this memory, the Emissary indicated an unreciprocated romantic interest in Varrick. It is unclear if this implanted memory had any influence on Mitchell's own attraction, but unlike with the Emissary, Reya returned his affections. Cameron walked her to her home after she became upset at an official reception. Once there, they shared drinks and kissed before Mitchell was knocked unconscious by some type of electrical charge. Reya was killed and Cameron framed for the murder, even to the point of having the murderer's memories of striking her down implanted in Mitchell's mind. Cameron was later cleared of the crime, and was able to have the false memory implants removed. He mourned her death and was pleased he still remembered her after his trauma with the Galaran memory device. (SG1: "Collateral Damage")
