- "My assignment, sir?"
"Recipes, Becker. For the love of God, recipes."
- —Becker and Everett Young
Becker worked in the officers' mess hall and was cooking when the base was attacked by an unknown enemy. He, along with the majority of the personnel of Icarus Base, were evacuated to the Destiny. (SGU: "Air, Part 1", "Air, Part 2")
Once aboard the Destiny, he measured and served rations to the expedition members. When it was discovered that the ship was on a direct course with a nearby star, a lottery was held to determine the 15 people who would board a Ancient shuttle and leave to what was believed to be a habitable planet. Becker's name was the first to be drawn in the lottery. (SGU: "Darkness", "Light")
- In an alternate timeline, he chose to return to Earth with everyone else but like everyone else except for Colonel David Telford, didn't make it to Earth and was presumed dead. However, he ended on a planet that he and other survivors called Novus, 2,000 years in the past. (SGU: "Twin Destinies", "Common Descent")
