There are 39 glyphs
on a Stargate, each representing a star constellation, and
seven such glyphs are used to form coordinates for the destination
Stargate address. The first six coordinates are used to identify
the destination in three-dimensional space, and the seventh
is the point of origin, unique to each Stargate. The SGC's
Stargate on Earth has glyph number 1 as the point of origin.
These are the 39 glyphs
found on Earth's Stargate in the SGC :
The following are the
addresses for Stargates, and the significance of each to the
Goa'uld is given. No point of origin is given, if the SGC
were to dial out to each Stargate they would use glyph 1 as
the seventh symbol.
Abydos was the destination
of the first mission by the SGC, lead by Colonel Jack O'Neill,
it was to identify and eliminate any possible threat to Earth.
Ra, the Goa'uld System Lord, was killed by the tactical nuclear
bomb they had brought with them.
Abydos was a human world
enslaved to mine the element naquadah, with a known population
of five thousand. The Abydonians no longer serve the Goa'uld.
Apophis' homeworld was
the destination he escaped to with Amaunet, during SG-1's
first mission to Chulak.
Humans, 'The Chosen',
were placed on Argos by the Goa'uld Pelops. Their life-spans
were shortened to a hundred days by nanocytes.
Chulak is the Jaffa
homeworld. Many of the human inhabitants serve the Goa'ulds
Apophis and Klorel. There are many Jaffa soldiers and priests
who have access to shrines containing larval Goa'ulds for
implantation in the Prim'ta.
On SG-1's first mission
to Chulak, they were captured by Apophis and escaped only
due to the assistance of Teal'c and other SG soldiers. Chulak
was later destroyed by Apophis in the search for his Harsesis
In the alternate reality
experienced by Daniel Jackson, General O'Neill sent a nuclear
bomb through the Stargate to Chulak whilst the SGC was under
attack by the Goa'uld.
Cimmeria is an Asgard-protected
planet, designated as safe for the development of sentient
life. All Jaffas know the Stargate address to ensure no Goa'uld
goes there, as they would face death by Thor's Hammer.
The SGC Stargate was
unearthed at Giza in 1928. The 'beta' Stargate, found in Antarctica
by the SGC, has an identical six-coordinate address but the
point of origin is obviously different.
The 'beta' Stargate
was used for various nefarious activities outside of the military
whilst in storage, but is now used in the SGC after the destruction
of the 'alpha' Stargate aboard the Beliskner, Thor's replicator-infested
Humans were placed on
Edora thousands of years ago by the Goa'uld as the ground
is rich in naquadah for extraction. The planet passes through
an asteroid belt every 250 years, and there many meteorite
collisions, some catastrophic, during each encounter.
