Carson Beckett's mother is a female Tau'ri and the mother of Dr. Carson Beckett as well as Danger Beckett.



She was seen serving food to Dr. Carson Beckett before he left for the Pegasus galaxy. (SGA: "Rising")


He later recorded a message for her where he reminded her to walk daily, get plenty of sleep and hoped her fungus had cleared up by this time. She was also mentioned to have been growing Petunias. Despite being reluctant to, Beckett closed out his message by telling his mother he loved her. (SGA: "Letters from Pegasus")


After Beckett was killed, Dr. Rodney McKay stated he was going to be the one to tell Beckett's mother. He later told a hallucination of Beckett about the funeral and how his mother reacted. (SGA: "Sunday")


When the Atlantis expedition found the clone of Beckett and he was told that his mother had been told he had died, he was distraught and wanted them to tell her they had made a mistake. He later wrote her a letter and told the team to tell her they'd found it in his quarters. (SGA: "The Kindred, Part 2")


Beckett's clone reveals to Teyla that he is still legally dead. When asked, Beckett tells Teyla that though the SGC offered to help him effectively come back to life, he chose not to, primarily because he couldn't make his mother lose him twice. Beckett explains that he feels his place is in the Pegasus Galaxy so whether or not he dies, he is unlikely to return to his mother. (SGA: "Legacy: Homecoming")
