In the episode of Stargate SG-1 called "The Fifth Race", there are 4 advanced races which are listed, namely the Asgard, the Ancients, the Nox, and the Furlings. The Asgard and the Ancients were extensively mentioned, the Nox had a few episodes that they were mentioned, but so far as I know, the Furlings never appeared, nor were heard from. Who are they?

The Furlings never did make an appearance on SG-1, but there was mention of them in several episodes, and Furling ruins were found and explored.

The length of time that the Furling nature has remained a mystery in the series has given the producers the opportunity to tease fans with a running gag. When Executive Producer Robert C. Cooper was asked "Will we ever meet the Furlings?", his answer was "Who says we haven't?"

There is also a lot of information on the sg1 wiki.

    The furlings make a pretty funny appearance in the 200th episode, totally what I envisioned. Feb 24 '11 at 22:33
  • I actually imagined that the creature that kidnaps Daniel Jackson in the season 1 episode 'Fire and Water' to be a Furling - advanced technology coupled with hatred of Goa'uld. But this is just my own theory, not grounded in any rumour or fact.

    yes, the 200th episode, "Wormhole Xtreme!" featured the furlings in the TV show within a TV show parody of itself. It was a pretty brilliant episode, depicting the furlings like ewoks.
