* NeverMyFault: Depending on your perspective, this could apply to Telford; [[spoiler:whenever his supported plans to allow ''Destiny'' to dial a wormhole back to Earth fail, he repeatedly acts as though the only explanation is that someone sabotaged it, rather than just accept that the plan he supported didn't work]].



* OlderAndWiser

to:

* OlderAndWiserOlderAndWiser: With over a decade of experience with the Stargate, it's hard to surprise him with anything.



* BrainUploading: [[spoiler: this is what the chair did to him. His body's disappearance is still a mystery.]]

to:

* BrainUploading: [[spoiler: this [[spoiler:This is what the chair did to him. His body's disappearance is still a mystery.]]



* DeathSeeker: In the pilot, he was so desperate to escape Destiny, that he was willing to strand Scott, Eli, Greer, and everyone who was looking for lime to use on the ship's CO2 scrubbers, not to mention doom the crew on Destiny to a slow death of asphyxiation, and had to be shot. As the series progressed, he grew only more and more angry and desperate until the he learned about "the chair" and happily used that device that he '''knew''' is deadly dangerous, twice.

* AscendedExtra: Originally intended to be a simple side character, the actor' portray impressed the showrunners enough to make him a more in-depth and involved character. Probably a CMOA for the actor considering how little most side characters have to work with.

* ForWantOfANail: Relates to Ginn how his parents bought him a hamster to teach him responsibility, but he accidentally left the cage door open and his father stepped on the escaped hamster. Since then he's been unsure of himself and refused any kind of responsibility put on him. This lead him to drop out of MIT and spend all his time video-gaming, where he solved the Ancient code that stranded both the expedition, and later, the Lucian Alliance on ''Destiny''. Ginn points out that without that hamster, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming they would have never met]].

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: "Malice"

to:

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: "Malice""Malice." And Rush doesn't just kill Simeon; oh no. Rush kills him with ''[[ForScience SCIENCE]].'' SelfDemonstrating/GLaDOS would have been proud.

Added DiffLines:

* SemperFi: Greer is dangerous, but tightly controlled, and he is also the man who is asked to do things that no one else can or will do. He defends those he is loyal to with his life, kills those who he views as enemies without flinching, and more importantly, is able to emotionally cope when someone who was formerly in the first group, becomes a member of the second.

Added DiffLines:

* RefugeInAudacity: Most of Rush's ideas are completely removed from conventional reality. Generally speaking, his ideas either work, someone gets killed, or sometimes both.
** [[spoiler: When Scott gets infested with an alien organism in ''Cloverdale'', Rush tells Colonel Young to give him all of the available medical supplies, alien tick venom which had been used in the past, hydrochloric acid, and "something that can cut through bone."]]

Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceTurn: This happens gradually over time. Although Camille is never a genuine monster, she eventually stops playing her earlier power games and becomes a genuinely kind person.

Added DiffLines:

* MasculineFeminineGayCouple: It is extremely subtle, but her partner, Sharon [[ButchLesbian wears the pants]].


* TokenEvilTeammate: While not really evil, Rush is [[TheUnfettered quite willing]] to sacrifice people for the greater good. Or what he considers the greater good anyway. Others might describe it as "his own convenience". He plays it much closer in the second season, where people keep getting harmed while he plays with his secret bridge. This is an occasional source of dark humour, when enemies of the ship first learn that Colonel Young is a relative pushover, and are then horrified to learn that Rush is (at least until the '''very''' last minute) extremely casual about letting people die.

This is an occasional source of dark humour, when enemies of the ship first learn gain the impression that Colonel Young is a relative pushover, compassionate and can therefore be manipulated, and are then horrified to learn that Rush is (at least until the '''very''' last minute) extremely casual about letting people die.


* TheStarscream: Frequently, although in a low key and subtle way. As a member of the IOA, Wray thinks she should be the civilian administrator aboard the ''Destiny'', in the same way that Dr Wier was aboard Atlantis. Unfortunately, she has neither Wier's competence nor integrity. Wray is (at least initially) a short sighted, [[CorruptBureaucrat power hungry bureaucrat]] who repeatedly conspires with Rush and Telford to undermine Colonel Young. She and Rush stage a literal coup early in the series, but after that fails, her attempts to subvert Young are generally less direct.

to:

* ShootTheDangerousMinion: Averted, although Greer nearly does this to her when he is bitten by a tick which injects psychedelic venom, which causes him to believe that she and Rush are again conspiring to take over the ship.

She and Rush stage a literal coup early in the series, but after that fails, her attempts to subvert overthrow Young are generally less direct.


* DirtyCoward: Averted, Wray isn't a coward, (which she proves more than once) she's just afraid to die. The show makes certain to draw a clear line of distinction between those two things.

to:

* DirtyCoward: Averted, Wray isn't a coward, (which she proves more than once) she's just afraid to die. The show makes certain to draw a clear line of distinction between those two things. Wray fights primarily via intrigue, however, and she is very quick to dive behind cover when fighting starts.


Added DiffLines:

* NominalHero: Although she frequently claims that she is only interested in the [[TheNeedsOfTheMany Greater Good]], it is never completely clear whether or not this is true, or simply what she tells herself in order to justify her actions.

She and Rush stage a literal coup early in the series, but after that fails, her attempts to subvert Young are generally less direct.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodIsNotSoft: Pretty much everyone accuses him of being a pushover early on. He becomes much more violent later, and possibly does so specifically in order to dispel other characters' belief that he is weak.


Added DiffLines:

* ShellShockedVeteran: Is in his quarters crying, while drinking copious amounts of diluted [[GargleBlaster moonshine]] in a few scenes.

Others might describe it as "his own convenience". He plays it much closer in the second season, where people keep getting harmed while he plays with his secret bridge.

Added DiffLines:

** Despite being a small man physically, however, he is more a wrestler than a boxer; he bodily throws himself at people with ferocity when he fights.


* AscendedFanboy: Eli played an online game loosely based on the {{vaporware}} ''VideoGame/StargateWorlds'' game (which in-universe was probably based off of ''Wormhole X-Treme!''). Plus, he's an avowed science fiction geek who makes constant references and shows the most genuine glee about being on a spaceship.
