Best supporting character

Postby Captain Seafort » Thu Apr 29, 2010 7:24 pm

One of the best things about Stargate is the fact that it's usually the same people in the background, rather than one-episode wonders. Moreover, they're usually as well-written and fleshed out as characters as the main cast, even if they only appear for a few episodes. So, of these background people, who are the best? For these purposes I'm talking about those who never got their names in the titles so people like Carson Beckett, who went from background to main cast, are excluded. The usual rules of nomination and seconding apply, and I'll put a vote up in a week or so.

That's her. I had to disagree with O'Neill referring to her as ol' doc Fraiser (she was hot)

Walter, of course.

So many good choices. Every one nominated has been great. I'll throw out Bra'tac.

None. They always surrender right before they finish the job and never tell you why.

Standard rules mean one nomination each unfortunately (although you can second as many as you like) - you'll have to pick one.

I'll nominate Radek Zelenka

Nominated:

Janet Fraiser
Major Lorne
Radek Zelenka

Seconded:

Bra'tac
Walter Harriman

I forgot which way it worked. Since I already nominated Lorne I strongly suggest someone nominate those two ;)

Anyway, no more have been seconded, so the poll's going up.
