How did O'Neill guess there would be a raid in "The Nox?"

O'Neill recognised that the reason that Apophis injured but didn't kill Nafrayu (and then left him in a clearing where he could easily be found) is that it's a fairly unimaginative ruse. The Nox, ...

What is the effective maximum range of a ring transporter?

Based on what we saw and heard in multiple episodes, it would seem the transporter rings' maximum effective range is the orbit of a planet. At least, that's the further they've been used on screen, ...

Why do Goa'uld and Asgard continue to use names from Earth mythos?

The Goa'uld and Asgard are the origins of Earths religions. The show doesn't necessarily flip-flop; the team's understanding of the facts evolves over time, like anywhere else. E.g. for the majority ...

What is the effective maximum range of a ring transporter?

TLDR We don't know of any firm upper limit to the distance the rings can transport. It would seem to be limited roughly from the surface of a planet to a close orbit of the same planet. The rings are ...

Why would Goa'uld blood be both toxic and be able to neutralize itself?

Goa'uld blood is not toxic. They release a toxin when they die. They can prevent this, but it requires their conscious will to do so. What is likely the case that they have 2 sacks somewhere that ...
