|Played By:||Michael Shanks|
|Planets:||Machello's Planet (P3C-599)|
An enemy of the Goa'ulds, Ma'chello is an inventor who developed various weapons to use against the Goa'uld. When the Goa'uld learnt of Ma'chello's homeworld, over two billion citizens of the planet died rather than turn him over to them.
The Goa'uld eventually managed to take Ma'chello's wife as a host, using her to capture Ma'chello. They tortured him for information but got nothing from him. Scheduled to become a host himself, Ma'chello managed to gather his strength and killed several Jaffa managing to escape.
Now with nothing else to live for, Ma'chello's sole purpose became the destruction of the Goa'uld. He created a device with which he put himself into suspended animation, in the hopes that he can live on. When SG1 arrived on his planet the device woke him and he saw his chance at destroying the Goa'uld. Hoping to regain the energy stolen by his old age, and to hide his face, wanted by all Goa'uld, Ma'chello tricked Daniel Jackson into switching bodies with him.
In the body of Daniel Jackson he returned to the SGC where he left the Cheyenne Mountain complex to experience a new world, however he was quickly caught when he used a Credit Card. Back at the SGC he told them that he wanted to body so that he could continue his fight against the Goa'uld, however Daniel in the dying body of Ma'chello convinced him that if he was to keep the body, then he'd be no better than the Goa'uld.
Seeing his mistake, Ma'chello told them how to return to their original bodies, thanking Daniel for the holiday.
