Stargate SG-1: Why Janet Fraiser Actor Teryl Rothery Left the Show

For seven seasons, Dr. Janet Fraiser (Teryl Rothery) dutifully served the newly formed Stargate Command as Chief Medical Officer and was a beloved member of the crew. Throughout Stargate SG-1, which ran from 1997-2007, she saved the lives of every member of the SG-1 team. Even though she exuded confidence and authority, she was also kind and benevolent and unafraid of risking her life if it meant saving the life of another. Tragically, Dr. Fraiser is killed in an enemy crossfire in the Season 7 two-part episode, “Heroes,” in which she rushes into the field of battle to stabilize an injured airman, Simon Wells. Dr. Fraiser died as she lived, working tirelessly in the line of danger to save lives.
