Robert Makepeace was a Colonel in the United States Marine Corps and a member of Stargate Command up until the year 2000 where he was exposed as being a member of the rogue NID who were illegally stealing technology from numerous allies of the SGC.
Originally, Makepeace was the commander of SG-3. He and his team provided backup for SG-1 on a mission to P3X-797. Upon his return to Stargate Command it was discovered that he had come in contact with a disease and became one of "The Touched." (SG1: "The Broca Divide")
When Jacob Carter began to lose his fight with cancer, Major General George S. Hammond sent him and SG-3 to retrieve Captain Samantha Carter. They were captured by the Tok'ra and imprisoned with SG-1. When it was discovered the Goa'uld were on their way, they were released and helped evacuate the Tok'ra base in an attempt to secure an alliance. (SG1: "The Tok'ra, Part 1", "The Tok'ra, Part 2")
On a mission to P3X-254, he was approached by several members of the Tok'ra. They informed him that SG-1 had been captured by Hathor and gave him their location. He returned to Stargate Command and informed Major General George S. Hammond who put him in command of SG-3, SG-5, SG-6, and SG-11 on a rescue mission to save SG-1. Once they arrived on Eskal, they came across Captain Samantha Carter and Dr. Daniel Jackson being held by several Jaffa. They freed them and they informed him that Colonel Jack O'Neill had been taken as a host by a Goa'uld. When the remaining members of SG-3 lost control of the Stargate, he ordered a retreat. When they reached the Gate they were attacked by Trofsky and the Sentry gun posts. They fled into the Tok'ra tunnels that had been opened by a Staff cannon blast. Once inside Carter headed back to the facility to shut down the shield generator. Later, he and the rest of the team were captured by the Jaffa and taken to the Gate. They were freed when Hammond and Teal'c came through the Gate in the Needle Threader followed by Bra'tac and several Jaffa on foot. (SG1: "Into the Fire")
In 2000, Makepeace was assigned by Major General George S. Hammond as the new commander of SG-1 after Colonel Jack O'Neill's temporary resignation. At the same time, O'Neill joined a rogue NID team overseen by Colonel Harold Maybourne which was also dedicated to acquiring alien technology by any means. However, unknown to everyone but O'Neill and Hammond, this was a plan to expose the rogue NID agents. O'Neill was subsequently able to identify Makepeace as the NID's double agent within Stargate Command and have him arrested. Makepeace protested that Earth was in need of those technologies to defend against the Goa'uld; O'Neill countered that they needed allies. Makepeace was arrested and ultimately jailed for treason. (SG1: "Shades of Grey")
When the SGC learned of a secret NID operation to collect offworld technology using android duplicates of SG-1, based on the technology from Altair, Harold Maybourne made discreet contact with Jack to suggest talking with Makepeace as a source of intel on the new threat. Although Makepeace's knowledge was out of date, he confirmed that the NID were responsible for the creation of the androids, allowing the SGC to narrow the list of options when finding the renegade android teams (SG1: "Hydra").
