Repeat this contains a Stargate SPOILER. A member of the Stargate team is leaving this season, and that is Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks). I can tell you he will not be killed of but something does happen to him, and he will not be the same, and I dont mean changed into an other actor. The reason for his leaving the show is that he feels the plots are needing his character less. Can anyone remind me how Colonel Harry Maybourne went rouge, was he running an other Stargate and pinching artifacts off other planets? I must say the show seems to get better and better, I like the role of Maybourne and I love Jack ONiel sardonic humour, oh yes the plots. Ruby quartz shades.
