Jota is an Ancient engineer who worked on Destiny.


Background informationEdit

Jota worked on Destiny prior to the ship's launch from Earth's space dock. He was a part of Vasi's engineering team. While trying to fix an issue with the power flow regulator, Destiny's automated launch sequence was activated, causing the ship to begin it's journey, leaving the team stuck onboard. With their location too close to the Earth's Stargate and the shuttles unable to make it to them safely, the group was advised to enter stasis and wait for the expedition teams arrival.

Later, Jota and the rest of the team awoken to find the Destiny expedition. When the engineering team began to fall ill, Vasi sent Jota with Eli Wallace to get the Tau'ri's doctors from stasis, to see if they could help them. He awoke Dr. Nicholas Rush, Lt. Tamara Johansen and Lt. Matthew Scott. When Scott was revived Eli used Colonel Everett Young's code word "Lucian", which prompted Scott to attack Jota. Lt. Johansen checked on Jota after the fight and noticed he was running a fever. Eli and Rush took him to the infirmary. (SGU: "Back to Destiny 2")

It was soon revealed by Dr. Gary Guzzo that the Lantean's sickness was the common cold, but all the years spent in stasis made the Ancients immune systems unprepared for the bacteria's evolution. A synthetic Tretonin was made to help them. After the Ancient's were cured, they integrated with the Destiny crew.(SGU: "Back to Destiny 3", "Back to Destiny 6")
