AO - stands for Adults Only

Apophis - a Goa'uld with a history with SG-1, he stole two very important people of SG-1's - Daniel's wife Sha're and Jack's friend Ska'ara. Not only that, but every time SG-1 thinks they've destroyed Apophis, he always appears again... except when he was truly destroyed by Replicators

Asgard - a nice species of aliens that just so happens to resemble the Roswell aliens, anyway, the Commander of the Asgard Fleet is Thor (the god of lightning), he is friends with Jack O'Neill and prefers the yellow cubes over the other colors... they have saved SG-1's asses more than once and saved Jack's live at least twice. They are part of the Four Great Races spoken of in Torment of Tantalus

Atlantis - the water based city that the Ancients built a VERY long time ago... it flies too, it's about 10,000 years old and it still has the original plant decorations...

Auf Wiedersehen - German for goodbye... also said by Jack in Urgo


B/C - shorthand for Beckett/Chair

BecKay - (Reckett) Beckett/McKay this resulted from Duet

Beckett, Dr. Carson - the Scottish doctor on Atlantis... fave quote "I'm just a bloody doctor!" Refined the delivery of the ATA gene and has it himself, though not with the control that Sheppard does. He is scared of operating things he knows can hurt something or that he doesn't understand i.e. the Chair at Atlantis. Is a very good doctor who knows what he's doing when it comes to medical situations

Beckett/Chair - the odd ship that includes a love/hate relationship between Dr. Beckett and the Chair of Atlantis, created by yours truly...

Bon voyage - French for "good trip" probably said by Jack... in Urgo

Daniel/Vala - the love/hate ship of season nine

DHD -  short for Dial Home Device, it's the big round thing that dials up the gate - has a big red hemisphere in the middle

GDO - short for Garage Door Opener, opens the iris on the human Stargate

Goa'uld - an evil race of aliens that has claim over much of the galaxy, the Goa'uld are interesting in a way... the Goa'uld themselves are long white/black snake-like symbiotes and they inhabit a host by nesting in his/her brain. They believe themselves to be gods because they have many powers due to a metal called naquadah that the symbiotes introduce into the host's blood


Hammond/Red Phone - ever noticed how much he uses it? another inani ship...

Harlan - the pesky human-like android in Tinman, Comtraya means hello and he turns SG-1 into androids without them knowing - it turns out that Harlan only made clones of SG-1 and that the real SG-1 still lived, he comes to see the SGC in Double Jeopardy regarding the other SG-1 which had wandered through the Stargate, he is approximately 11,000 years old or exactly 99,270,000 of our hours

Jack/P-90 - oy... yet ANOTHER inani ship... soooo didn't make it, again!

Jack/Sam - the most prominent ship of the SG-1 world

Jackson, Dr. Daniel - wacky, but very cute archeologist, got laughed out of the academic community because he claimed that the pyramids were built by aliens... he was right! Figured out how the Stargate operated in the movie Stargate after many hours of coffee and studying the coverstone. Found archives that showed that the gate had been opened before in the 1940's. Died during season 6 from radiation poisoning (Meridian) He ascended with the help of Oma Desala - an Ancient

Jaffa - a race of people that were slaves to the Goa'uld, they hold the symbiote in an "X" shaped pouch, the larval symbiote is their immune system - without it, they would die. Many of them now live using a medicine called tretonin which was developed offworld and refined by Earthlings to use in jaffa

Janet/Hammond - ew. this is a ship i stumbled across one day...


Kawalsky, Major Charles - one of Jack O'Neill's best friends and an officer in the Air Force. Did work in the SGC until The Enemy Within when the Goa'uld symbiote he acquired unknowingly at the end of Children of the Gods reared its ugly head and killed some people. The doctors tried to do brain surgery to try and get the symbiote out of him, it seemed successful until they realized that a symbiote, without its body, can still act in the host. He died with his head half in an open Stargate that was shut down by Jack

Kinsey, Senator Robert - a sly, back-the-scenes, double-talking politicians who contradicts what he says by his actions. He has a history with Jack O'Neill and SG-1, in short, he doesn't like the whole SGC and how it's kept a secret from the world. He would rather see the program completely shut down than let SG-1 roam the galaxy and save Earth. He is a God fearing man and is an asshole - he believes everyone is trying to keep his from his presidency and he only worries about his own hide. 

Kloral - the symbiote that was in Ska'ara



Ma'chello - a brilliant alien scientist who made many devices to help destroy the Goa'uld, the Goa'uld tried many times to find him and when they found his world, 2 billon people died in order to save him. He first shows up in Holiday when SG-1 finds him in suspended animation and his body switching device made Daniel and him swap bodies 

Mal Doran, Vala - a thief, spy, former Goa'uld, and in love to Daniel Jackson. She trades weapons to shifty people and makes a living by stealing and trading. Is thought to be dead, but not certain. Loves playing around with people and has a tendency to lie... a lot

Malikai - an alien archeologist that specialized in Ancient technology, appeared in Window of Opportunity trying to go back in time and see his dead wife again, instead it resulted in a time loop. He didn't realize that fourteen other Stargates were also time-looping

MALP - short for Mobile Analytic Laboratory Platform, in short that rover that goes through the gate and checks things out on another planet before the SG teams go through

Maybourne, Harry - an ex-colonel in the Air Force and an agent of the NID, a scheming and sly person. You never know whether he's on your side, the other guy's side, or his own side. Always watches out for his own interests

McKay/Betty - hehe, this is McKay/Watch ship... not me again...

McKay/Carter - another doctorate ship that is extremely love/hate

McKay, Dr. Rodney - rather arrogant, perhaps insecure astrophysicist - brilliant man though if not loud and the fact that he claims he's perfect caught often... a good guy overall, claims that he is not as good as a scientist as Sam Carter is - doesn't take leaps of faith he said, but he does - with the guarantee that it (whatever it is) won't fail. Is loyal and brave at heart

McWeir - McKay/Weir ship... shorthand

Mitchell, Lt. Colonel Cameron - a colonel and pilot in the Air Force, fought in an F-302 in Antarctica and got seriously injured in a crash after getting shot, now controls SG-1 (season 9+), is rather ignorant about the whole thing and somewhat unserious - learns by experience


Narim - a Tollan and was in love with Sam Carter, Sam had rescued him from his planet and they fell for each other, Sam got over him, but Narim remembered her. Sam gave him her cat, Schrödinger - they remained good friends even so

naquada(h) - a heavy metal that the Stargate is made out of, generally associated with the Goa'uld - many Stargate associated things are made of this metal

NID - a shifty and interrupting civilian run branch of the government, is involved with many secret projects like the Stargate program and has a significant military "force." Was seen as bad, but some agents worked to correct that image.... NID is kinda like the CIA or the FBI - civilian run

noromo - not a shipper

Nox - a friendly and pacifist race of people, they live in peace from the Goa'uld and have the ability to be invisible. They are short, have messy hair, long-lived, and have lots of tidbits of wisdom, they can heal any wound or bring people back from the dead, part of the Four Great Races mentioned in The Torment of Tantalus

Omaroca - a member of a fish-like people, specifically the wife of one of these people who captured Daniel Jackson and made SG-1 think he was dead. Omaroca's husband wished to know what happened to his wife when she went to Earth - Daniel found out that she was dead... the husband had Daniel look at cuneiform and a phrase that read: "Fate Omaroca." First appeared in Fire and Water

O'Neill, Colonel/General Jack - an officer in the Air Force, was the commanding officer of SG-1, then the commanding officer of the SGC, then he went to Washington to work in the Pentagon (bad idea!).

Reckett - see BecKay

Replicators - a nasty mechanical bug species that is made out of cell blocks. Each block can get together with another block and form a shape - they seem to like the bug/spidery look. They consume metals in order to make themselves stronger - the stronger the metal, the harder they are to destroy. The Replicators were first made by a child-like android named Reese

Rodney/ZPM - hehe, I know, another one.... INANI! totally not me again... its between Rodney and a ZPM this time...

Sheyla - Sheppard/Teyla ship

Shifu - the child of Apophis and Ammonet/Sha're, has the genetic memory of all the Goa'uld before him, but because Daniel stole him at birth and 'gave' him to Oma Desala, he turned out a good person and not evil.
