Jason was a hero in Greek mythology. He was a captain who set on a long quest for the Golden Fleece, which he found hanging on a tree at the end of the world. His crew were called Argonauts. The Fourth Doctor called Jackson "Jason" when he said goodbye to him; when Leela asked why, he told her about the myth, then wondered if it was also a prophecy. (TV: Underworld)
