- "Since this is your first time, sir, a quick word of advice. It's better to exhale just prior to crossing the event horizon. One's instinct is to inhale immediately upon arriving on the other side."

Major Stan Kovaceck was an attorney and Major in the United States Air Force who was the second to lead SG-9. Kovaceck was designated to be the liaison between the Judges of Hadante and the Tau'ri during which Major General George S. Hammond and Kovaceck tried to reason with the Judges to let SG-1 free. They were unsuccessful but SG-1 later escaped on their own. (SG1: "Prisoners")
