"There is no Chet!"
―Chuck on Richard Woolsey's poor knowledge of Atlantis' staff.[src]

Chuck is a Canadian member of the Atlantis expedition, holding the rank of Sergeant. He was part of the original expedition team that departed from Earth in 2004, and has since served as a technician in Atlantis' control room. He was usually seen in the background of the control room, but following Peter Grodin's death, he took over the running of the Stargate, usually informing Weir of an incoming wormhole or an unscheduled off-world activation. He later begins sharing this duty with fellow tech Amelia Banks.

BiographyEdit

2005Edit

When a piece of technology in Stargate Operations began malfunctioning, he called Dr. Radek Zelenka to find the problem. It turned out that to be the Long range sensors detecting three Wraith Hive Ships. (SGA: "The Brotherhood")

Chuck mans one of the control stations as McKay, Miller and Peter Grodin attempt to use the Lagrangian Point satellite to destroy the three hive ships. When Grodin destroys one with the weapon, Chuck cheers with everyone else, but is left somber by the news of Grodin's death. At Weir's signal, Chuck activates the PA system for Weir to inform the entire city of the development. (SGA: "The Siege, Part 1")

During the Battle of Atlantis, he manned the sensors and coordinated the strike teams in search of the Wraith that had beamed into the city. When Sheppard destroyed one of the hive ships, Chuck somberly reported it to Weir, McKay and Beckett before unexpectedly picking up the arrival of another ship on sensors, one that was broadcasting an IFF. To everyone's relief, the ship is revealed to be the Daedalus which had rescued Sheppard. As the Daedalus fights it out with the Wraith, Chuck informs Weir that he has lost contact with three of the Wraith hunting teams and then reports the destruction of the last hive ship by the Daedalus. (SGA: "The Siege, Part 2", "The Siege, Part 3")

After the Stargate is dialed but no one comes through or sends an IDC, Chuck calls Weir to report. Both figure it was Sheppard's team, but are confused by the lack of people arriving. Weir orders Chuck to dial Olesia and attempt to establish radio contact with the team. (SGA: "Condemned")

When Lt. Colonel John Sheppard's team discovered the Doranda outpost, he transferred data from the outpost to Dr. Rodney McKay's lab at McKay's request. (SGA: "Trinity")

When McKay returned from being missing for days, Chuck informed Weir of the incoming wormhole and that it was McKay. Later, Chuck receives a message from the Daedalus and somberly tells Weir that the ship has called off the search for Sheppard's team as there was nothing to search for and would be back to Atlantis by 19:00 hours. Moments after Chuck returns to his station, there's an incoming wormhole and an excited Chuck informs Weir that its Sheppard's IDC. On Weir's command, a grinning Chuck lowers the Stargate shield to let Sheppard, Ronon and Teyla through. (SGA: "The Hive")

A few months later, Chuck began dialing Earth as part of Atlantis' weekly dial-in when McKay got a transmission from Earth through the Daedalus warning that a bomb was set to go off and destroy Atlantis when Earth was dialed. McKay yelled at Chuck to stop moments before he would've activated the Stargate. Awhile later, Chuck noticed the Stargate dialing Earth and warned McKay, but as the ZPM had been disconnected, the attempt failed. However, it turned out to be a trick so that a distress call could be sent out to draw in two nearby Wraith cruisers. (SGA: "Critical Mass")

2006Edit

When Lt. Colonel John Sheppard and Dr. Elizabeth Weir were taken control over by Phoebus and Thalan, Chuck helped Colonel Steven Caldwell monitor the situation, watching with horror when Teyla Emmagan was nearly forced to kill Sheppard. (SGA: "The Long Goodbye")

When Ladon Radim contacted Atlantis, Chuck alerted Weir and Sheppard and put the transmission up on a monitor. He then monitored the open wormhole between Atlantis and M6R-867 for transmissions from Cowen with no success. When they suddenly received McKay's IDC, Chuck alerted Weir and lowered the Stargate shield long enough for Sheppard, McKay, the missing Atlantis teammembers, Ladon and his men to come through. Chuck then raised the shield again on Sheppard's order moments before a nuclear blast hit it. (SGA: "Coup D'etat")

When the Taranis Stargate falls into a pool of lava, McKay orders Chuck to raise the Stargate shield. When Weir demands to know why, Chuck explains McKay told him to and attempts without luck to dial back to Taranis. (SGA: "Inferno")

When a hive ship approaches Atlantis, Chuck monitors the situation and informs Weir that the hive ship has not powered weapons. Weir orders Chuck to keep an eye on the ship and switch from cloak to shield without waiting for her order if he detects the ship powering weapons. Chuck then reports on an audio transmission coming in and puts what they realize to be Michael on speaker. As a relay is set up using the Daedalus, Chuck monitors the Wraith transmission and wryly notes that the Wraith are getting impatient. He later downloads the Wraith jamming code and "Wraith encyclopedia" to non-networked firewalled computers when they are sent to Atlantis. When the "Wraith encyclopedia" is downloaded, McKay gets so excited he shoves Chuck and his chair across the Control Room. (SGA: "Allies")

When a hive ship approaches Atlantis shortly after the departure of the Daedalus, Chuck monitors the sensors tracking the ship and is relieved along with everyone else when its discovered that Sheppard is in control of the hive ship. (SGA: "Misbegotten")

When Lucius Lavin comes to Atlantis, Chuck falls under his influence with everyone else. Upon returning from a scouting mission, Sheppard and McKay find Chuck alone in the Control Room and he directs them to the mess hall where everyone else is listening enraptured to a story Lucius is telling. When Sheppard kidnaps Beckett and steals a Puddle Jumper, Chuck fails to close the roof in time to prevent his escape. Along with everyone else, Chuck rushes to the balcony to watch Lucius' Puddle Jumper flight in awe. While Lucius is away with Sheppard, Beckett cures Chuck and the rest of the expedition of their Lucius addiction. (SGA: "Irresistible")

When Dr. Daniel Jackson, Dr. Elizabeth Weir, and Vala Mal Doran were using the Holo room, he determined they were using no power, proving it was Morgan Le Fay using the hologram. Weir later had Chuck dial Earth so she could relay a warning to the Odyssey about an approaching hive ship through Teal'c. (SG1: "The Pegasus Project")

After the Daedalus rescues the Ancient crew of the Tria, Chuck reports that Sheppard's team and the Ancient delegation is ready to beam down. He is then kicked out of the city by Captain Helia along with the rest of the expedition. (SGA: "The Return, Part 1")

2007Edit

When Sheppard's team is overdue calling in from the Moon Base, Weir has Chuck dial the Stargate so they can contact them. After Sheppard asks for a rescue team, Weir orders Chuck to assemble Major Lorne and a team, an order he immediately complies with. (SGA: "The Ark")

After a deadly explosion near the gym, Chuck reports on the event to Weir along with the casualties. While Weir questions if it could be a malfunction, Chuck admits that he doubts it and suspects a bomb. Later, after the death of Doctor Carson Beckett, Chuck stands on the Control Room balcony with his hands folded respectfully behind his back during the memorial service. At Weir's signal, Chuck dials the Stargate to Earth to send through Beckett's casket for the funeral and burial. (SGA: "Sunday")

When Sheppard's team visits the Taranian settlement to discover what has happened to the Taranians, Weir asks Chuck if they have checked in yet, but Chuck informs her that they are not yet overdue. Weir orders Chuck to dial the Stargate anyway and then to assemble a team of Marines when Sheppard asks for help. Chuck later informs Weir that they have received a data transmission from Lieutenant Negley stating that the Taranians have moved ten kilometers inland and that is where his and Sheppard's team are. When Weir questions the pod and life sign Sheppard mentioned, Chuck states that Negley didn't mention it and had been nearly out of range at the time of the transmission. When Sheppard's team returns, Chuck alerts Weir of the incoming wormhole and lowers the Stargate shield for them on her order. (SGA: "Vengeance")

When the Apollo arrives at Atlantis, Chuck alerts Weir, Sheppard and McKay, leading to Weir thanking him by name for the first time. After the arrival of a small object from hyperspace, Chuck alerts the command team and informs them that he doubts its Wraith since the new arrival is very small. Chuck is manning his station when the Asuran Stargate satellite fires an energy beam at Atlantis and warns that its a continuous beam. On the order of Weir, Chuck activates the intercom so she can broadcast messages about Atlantis being submerged and the fact that Atlantis is leaving Lantea. Chuck maintains his station as Atlantis is launched into space and can be seen smiling as the city achieves flight. Though the Control Tower is brushed by the energy beam briefly, Chuck is only slightly injured by the flying glass and debris and remains at his station as nearly everyone else is taken for medical treatment. He is at his station when Atlantis drops out of hyperspace and McKay announces that they are lost with 24 hours of power left. (SGA: "First Strike")

After the attack, McKay assigns Chuck to repair subspace communications. However, Chuck doesn't have any luck and is hit by a shower of sparks while trying. A short time later, when the city starts to collapse the shield to conserve power, Chuck warns McKay and Sheppard that the outer buildings are losing gravity and are decompressing. After three men die as a result, Chuck listens with a grim look on his face as Sheppard orders McKay to have his other teams hurry so they won't suffer the same fate. Later, after Sheppard agrees to collapse the Atlantis shield all the way to the Control Tower, McKay signals Chuck to do so. (SGA: "Adrift")

When Todd arrived on Atlantis, he detected the Wraith Hive Ship that was headed toward Atlantis. (SGA: "The Seer")

2008Edit

He was in Stargate Operations when a quarantine lockdown was imposed by an ionospheric storm the previous night. Before the city's self-destruct was activated by a supposed breach, he tried but failed to shut down the cities Subspace communications. (SGA: "Quarantine")

When Teal'c and Ronon Dex were sparring in the Atlantis gym, he was seen placing bets on the outcome. When Colonel Samantha Carter stopped the fight, Lt. Colonel John Sheppard took his money back. (SGA: "Midway")

When a Daedalus from an alternate reality appeared in orbit above Atlantis, he detected it with the sensors. Later, he contacted Earth and informed Lt. Colonel John Sheppard that the real Daedalus was in the Milky Way. (SGA: "The Daedalus Variations")

He detected the Vanir spaceship's hyperdrive signature and contacted Lt. Colonel John Sheppard in his quarters by patching into the PA system. (SGA: "First Contact")

When Shen Xiaoyi came to evaluate Richard Woolsey, he attempted to impress her by being able to name the staff in Stargate Operations but incorrectly referred to him as Chet; he quickly tried to cover himself by saying "Chet" worked the nightshifts. After Woolsey left Stargate Operations Chuck said "There is no Chet!". (SGA: "Remnants")

Shortly before he notices the approach of the Vanir spaceship, he is seen in a relaxed pose, his feet resting on the console and reading a book about World War II fighter aircraft. This happens during the night which might imply that he actually is also partly working the night-shifts, or at least this particular one. When the Vanir ship passes through the Atlantis shield, Chuck is shocked and confused by this occurrence. (SGA: "First Contact")

2009Edit

After Atlantis was finally allowed to leave Earth again, Sheppard asked Chuck to call McKay for him. Chuck agreed to do so, but informed Sheppard that he would not be returning to Pegasus as his mother was sick with cancer. Sheppard wished Chuck luck and hoped to possibly see him again in the future as a member of the expedition. (SGA: "Legacy: Homecoming")
