Fisher is a male Tau'ri and a Senator in the United States Senate and chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee that decides over which resources should be transferred to which programs.

He was very reluctant in continuing to give the Stargate program its full funding and had the budget reduced to 30% of its original income. He believed that the funding should go towards the Atlantis expedition and the pursuit of Ancient technology in the Pegasus Galaxy. He was resistant to the idea that the Ori and the Prior encountered were a threat to be taken seriously.

Fisher accused Stargate Command and Major General Henry Landry of manufacturing a whole new enemy in the wake of the Goa'uld's defeat as a means to deceive him and continue receiving their full funding. When he remarked that Earth was fully capable of defeating any threat against them, Vala Mal Doran openly mocked the senator about what she perceived were his short comings while he was in the room. Eventually, a compromise was made to allow the SGC more funding, but under the authority of the International Oversight Advisory. (SG1: "The Ties That Bind")
