Lt. Aiden Ford is a male Tau'ri, a former member of the United States Marine Corps and a former member of the Atlantis expedition.


He was stationed at the Antarctic outpost serving as security. When the location of Atlantis was discovered, he joined the expedition and said goodbye to his grandfather and grandmother. As he was about to go through the Stargate, John Sheppard asked him what it feels like and Ford told him that it hurt like hell, before jumping through and smiling. After arriving on Atlantis they learned it was underwater and protected by a powerful shield but power was dropping. He joined a team led by Colonel Marshall Sumner to go offworld to search for a safe evacuation point and they went to Athos and met the Athosians. He went to the Stargate, to check on the two stationed there, when it activated and three Darts came through. When they were coming back, Sheppard said that their people were aboard and Ford needed to look at the Dial Home Device and remember the symbols that pop up. A rescue plan was formed and Ford joined Sheppard's team. He mentioned calling the Puddle Jumper a "Gateship" and Sheppard shot it down. When they arrived, he went with Ford to find the prisoners. Sheppard went after Sumner but Ford grew concerned so he went after him and rescued him from a Wraith. They rescued everyone and returned to Atlantis. Ford joined Sheppard and Elizabeth Weir in a toast to their expedition. (SGA: "Rising")

When Jinto went missing, Ford helped search for him. An energy entity was found in the city and Ford and Stackhouse were trapped in a corridor and Ford was injured when the entity touched him. He later told Stackhouse, who was upset that he didn't prevent Ford from being injured, that there was nothing he could have done. He later told Jinto, who had accidentally released the entity, that what had happened wasn't his fault. (SGA: "Hide and Seek") When gathering intelligence on the Wraith, Sheppard had an Iratus bug attach to his neck and Ford took command. Their Jumper became lodged in the Spacegate and Ford reported to Weir what had happened on the mission. He and Teyla Emmagan began using various things in their possession to try to remove the bug and later he used a defibrillator to stop Sheppard's heart so Teyla could pull the bug off and Ford shot it several times. He tried to resuscitate Sheppard but could not so Teyla dragged him into the event horizon to keep him safe. Meredith Rodney McKay managed to get them free but the ship remained still and Ford attempted to ram into the bulkhead door but McKay said it wouldn't do anything. In order to push them, Ford blew the rear hatch and held on to prevent himself from being sucked out. (SGA: "Thirty-Eight Minutes")

After finding a door that allowed the Jumpers to get outside, Ford bribed Sheppard with a Turkey Sandwich to take him with him to fly around the planet and they discovered the Lantea mainland. When on a mission, he went with Teyla to find the natives when the others were attacked by the Wraith and had to retreat. He missed being shot but a Wraith stunner but fell and hit his head so Teyla had to drag him back to Atlantis. After it was discovered that Teyla's necklace was a Wraith Transmitter, a trap was set for the Wraith and Ford took part. (SGA: "Suspicion") When McKay was being bothered by some children and yelled at them, Ford took them aside and gave them some chocolate to make them feel better. (SGA: "Childhood's End") While transporting a Wraith aboard a Puddle Jumper, Ford remarked to the Wraith, who was smiling, that it wasn't supposed to be fun for him. (SGA: "Poisoning the Well")

A planet was discovered which offered a return to Earth and Weir and Sheppard's team went through. Ford visited his family and was then told that he was being transferred back to Antarctica. He went to party Sheppard was having and witnessed Sheppard claim that two guests had been dead for years. Hammond revealed the world was created by the Mist on the planet they had been on as using the Stargate harmed them. They convinced the Mist to release them as they would leave and not come back. (SGA: "Home") Ford helped evacuate Athosians from the mainland when a Hurricane was approaching. He, Teyla and Beckett remained on the mainland to wait for some missing Athosians but by the time they arrived, the storm had arrived so they decided to wait it out. They learned from Sheppard that a Genii strike force had arrived and Ford wanted to go and help but the storm prevented them from leaving. (SGA: "The Storm") When the eye of the storm reached them, Ford had Beckett fly them up and over the storm to reach Atlantis. He led Teyla and Beckett through the city to help Sheppard, heading to a Naquadah generator room to rescue Sheppard from an ambush. He went with Sheppard to rescue Weir and McKay and fired on Genii soldiers as they were evacuating. (SGA: "The Eye")


When Sheppard, McKay and two scientists were across the Lantean System, Weir had Ford put together a team to head out there to provide backup just in case. They arrived in time to rescue them from a Wraith. (SGA: "The Defiant One") He was providing security for a research team when two of them suddenly died, they found they had been exposed to a nanovirus and Ford and Radek Zelenka were next to be exposed and so would soon die. They were saved when an EMP was detonated and disabled the virus. (SGA: "Hot Zone") While searching for a ZPM, Ford was hit with a tranquilizer dart but pretended to collapse which allowed him to attack the Genii who came for him, killing one of them. He helped set up a trap for the others with Sheppard and Teyla. (SGA: "The Brotherhood")

Ford helped record video messages from the expedition members to be sent back to Earth in a message, recording one himself for his grandparents. (SGA: "Letters From Pegasus") He helped set up a list of addresses to be checked as possible locations of the Alpha Site. When Sgt. Bates was attacked, Ford mentioned that he and Teyla did have an altercation the previous day and later mentioned he was concerned that maybe the Wraith had gained control over Teyla. (SGA: "The Siege, Part 1") After a military team arrived from Earth to help defend the city from the Wraith, Ford overhead that one of the railgun positions had gone dark so he headed there to man the gun and defend the city. During another attack, he and a group of soldiers were surrounded by Wraith. (SGA: "The Siege, Part 2")

They were attacked by the Wraith and one of them began feeding on Ford but was killed when a Grenade exploded, sending the Wraith and Ford over the edge into the ocean. Ford's system was flooded with Wraith enzyme which helped him survive being under the water for so long. He was treated in the infirmary but left to go back to duty. When Dr. Beckett wanted him to come back he grabbed Beckett by the throat but was talked down. Beckett wanted to wean him off the enzyme but Ford, who's hearing had been increased because of the enzyme, overheard. He took out a marine and threatened to kill someone until Beckett handed over all the enzyme he had. Ford escaped and avoided capture until he was found by Sheppard, but he refused to stand down, even withstanding a shot from a Wraith stunner. He escaped Atlantis in a Jumper. (SGA: "The Siege, Part 3")

While hunting a Wraith to extract its enzyme, he stopped Ronon Dex but when Ronon was stunned, Ford went after the Wraith. Sheppard's team arrived to search for him and he saw Sheppard and Teyla being captured by Ronon. He stunned Major Evan Lorne and took McKay with him to find them. He had McKay follow him around, not really knowing where to go until McKay refused to go on and shot Ford in the arm to try to stop him. He chased McKay who ended up struck in trap. He was intending to kill him when Ronon arrived and the two fought. When Sheppard showed up, Ford stepped into a Wraith Culling beam to escape. (SGA: "Runner") The enzyme allowed Ford to remain conscious when he was beamed out and he killed a nearby Wraith, took his enzyme and escaped. (SGA: "The Lost Boys")

He went to a planet and told others about the enzyme and began recruiting others to fight the Wraith. After getting information about a Hive ship and stealing a Dart, he had Sheppard's team captured to get them to help with the plan as well as put some of then on the enzyme to convince others on Atlantis that it was safe. He told Sheppard that he wanted to go home but wanted to complete the mission to destroy the Hive first. When they got aboard, they were captured. (SGA: "The Lost Boys") He went through withdrawals and was taken away by the Wraith only to escape and get more of the enzyme. He rescued Sheppard from the queen and covered him while he freed Teyla and Ronon. Ford was aboard the hive ship when it was destroyed but Sheppard said he believed survived somehow. (SGA: "The Hive")
