The J.R. Reed Space Terminal was an advanced facility housing the Stargate in Washington D.C. in an alternate timeline in the year 2010. The facility was equipped with an advanced visual communications device, powerful Aschen defense drones and terrorist alarms.
Visitors regularly disembark to various worlds, including Chulak and the Aschen homeworld, much as would be done in an airport terminal. Weapons were not allowed in the facility, and those brought through the Stargate are immediately confiscated. Detection grids mark entrances to the Stargate area, where luggage must be inspected if the alarms are sounded.
On July 28, 2010, Samantha Carter, Teal'c and Dr. Daniel Jackson were awarded medals of valor for their service in bringing the Aschen into Earth's list of allies, but were later forced to commandeer the terminal to get a message into the past to prevent the alliance, killing all three, as well as Jack O'Neill.
