|Portrayed by||Michael Shanks|
|First mention||"There But For the Grace of God"|
This alternate Jackson was a linguist and an Ancient Egypt historian and was well known because of some radical ideas. On July 23, 1990, Catherine Langford approached him during one of his seminars and offered him a job, yet he refused it, and according to Langford, was "quite rude". She supervised the team who translated the Giza cartouche, using some of Jackson's work. This Jackson didn't see the Stargate, traveled to Egypt, and lived there as of 1997. (SG1: "There But For the Grace of God")
When Daniel Jackson is trapped in an alternate reality after touching a mirror, he encounters Catherine Langford who was not supposed to be at Stargate Command, but at home with her fiancé Ernest Littlefield. Upset, she explains to him the alternate Jackson's history, much to Jackson's confusion.
Later, Jackson checks his self's files on a computer and discovers that he was living in Egypt. Then he verifies on the world map and states that "he" (his alternate self) must be dead, as the Giza area is red-dotted, meaning bombed by the Goa'uld spaceships.
- Only a computer picture of this alternate Daniel Jackson is visible (SG1: "There But For the Grace of God").
- On the Catherine Langford's computer file, Daniel's last known location was Egypt and the file was updated in 1997. This file also mentions that Jackson's address and phone number are unknown.
- Doctor Daniel Jackson, the main reality counterpart.
