Dr. Meredith Rodney McKay, better known as Rodney McKay, due to his dislike of his real first name (he is called 'Meredith' or 'Mer' by his sister and briefly 'Rod' by Dr. Daniel Jackson), is a brilliant astrophysicist, and one of the leading experts on, not only the Stargate and wormhole physics, but also Ancient, Edanian, Sith, Vorlon, First Human Empire, Borg, Forerunner and nanite technology in the multiverse. Having been involved with the Earth Stargate Program for many years while even helping the Tau'ri-Jaffa Alliance as well, McKay eventually joined the Atlantis expedition after expressing an eager desire to be a part of it.
Biography Edit Edit
Personality Edit Edit
Contrary to the 'Polite Canadian' stereotype, McKay is often one of the most arrogant and condescending people known to the Stargate Program as well as members of both Stargate Command and the Atlantis expedition. He often verbally abuses his peers, particularly Dr. Radek Zelenka, for their perceived "lack of intellect" or imagination. His attitude is one of exasperation, wondering that they can hold down a job, and yet, he is occasionally forced to admit that his colleagues are useful. However, despite his irritating demeanor, almost everyone on the Atlantis expedition is either a friend, or on friendly terms with him. He even demonstrates a certain "B team" inferiority complex when dealing with the members of SG-1, particularly Samantha Carter and Dr. Daniel Jackson.
