09:34 am - Character Profile: Catherine Langford

First appearance: Stargate The Movie Last appearance: S2 1969*


Career: Born either in 1923/24, Catherine pursued a career in archaeology following in her father’s footsteps. 

It may very well be that a visit from Daniel Jackson and Sam Carter in 1969 prompted her to approach the Air Force to reopen the experiments on the Stargate (*this is Catherine’s last onscreen appearance). 

She was the Head of the Stargate Programme until the success of the programme meant it became subject to military command (Stargate The Movie).

Unlike an alternate reality version of herself, Catherine evidently retired in the wake of the first Abdydos mission but briefly joined SG1 on a mission to rescue Doctor Ernest Littlefield (S1 The Torment of Tantalus).  

Catherine died in the original timeline leaving much of her archaeology estate to Daniel Jackson (S8 Moebius). It allowed him to find a ZPM in Ancient Egypt. It is likely (if unverified) that Catherine died in the reinstituted timeline.     

Family: Her father Professor Langford discovered the Stargate at Giza (Stargate The Movie) and continued to experiment with the gate into the 1940s. He died during her adulthood.  She has a niece Sabrina Gosling indicating that she has either a brother or sister but as they were not at the funeral, it is assumed they are also dead.      

Female Friendships: During the programme, Catherine befriended a young Samantha Carter.

Romantic Others: Catherine was engaged to Doctor Ernest Littlefield but believed that he had died in an experiment. She remained unattached and was later reunited with Ernest when she joined SG1 in his rescue (S1 The Torment of Tantalus). She and Ernest lived out the rest of their lives together.        

AU/Other Versions: Doctor Catherine Langford (S1 There But for the Grace of God).

Scientific Method by [info]zinke 
Summary: The first time Catherine Langford met Sam Carter.  The last thing Catherine needed right now was another over-eager, starry-eyed officer whose only concern was making Major before her next birthday.
