Stargate Enemies

It's rather sad that Stargate has ended, but we guess it's better to end on a high. Over the seasons there have been a wide range of enemies, here is what we consider to be the best for both SG-1 and Atlantis.

The Goa'uld are serpent parasites that forcibly take human hosts, and possess a thirst for power and worship. They have enslaved countless worlds, using their inhabitants as hosts, soldiers, miners, and personal slaves. The Goa'uld have incredible regenerative abilities and are capable of living thousands of years in the body of a human host. The Goa'uld pose as various gods from Earth mythology, so that the masses (people whose ancestors were transplanted from Earth thousands of years ago) will follow and obey. The most powerful Goa'uld System Lord was Anubis. He was banished by the others because his actions were deemed unspeakable, even among the Goa'uld. The picture shows Anubis, for pictures of other Goa'uld click here.

Jaffa from Stargate


Slaves of the Goa'uld, the Jaffa are humans from many different worlds, most of whom have been implanted with larval Goa'uld symbiotes. Jaffa have a great sense of honour and nobility backing their oppressed history. Because of their genetic manipulation by the Goa'uld, Jaffa are forced to receive a symbiote upon reaching the Age of Prata (puberty), or die from a failing immune system. Without a symbiote, an adult Jaffa cannot survive more than a few hours.

Replicator from Stargate


Replicators are composed of hundreds of individual blocks, which are comprised of whatever substance the original Replicator has consumed. It takes only a few blocks to replicate new blocks, and in a few hours Replicators can breed into thousands. The Replicators seek and absorb advanced technology. Goa'uld technologies are too inferior and are incapable of stopping Replicators. The technologically advanced Asgard empire entered into war with the Replicators and resulted in a technological race. The Asgard have, on more than one occasion, come to Earth seeking help.

Ori from Stargate


A race of ascended entities who demand the worship of mortal beings. The Ori were once the same civilization as the Ancients, but believed in religion, where the Ancients relied more heavily on science. Due to the origins of their ancestry the Ori believe they are the creators of human life. They use their ascension and knowledge of the universe as justification for praise and worship. They are still aware of the Ancients and shun them, for they abandoned the "path". The Ori conceived the Origin faith, one that puts them in the centre of creation, and wrote down their word in the Book of Origin to be administered to followers through Priors. The entire purpose of Origin is a lie, as the Ori do not actually offer enlightenment. This simple belief creates a transfer of energy from the worshipper to the Ori. Only by having beings believe and worship in them can the Ori thrive, feeding off this energy field. The Priors are not aware of this truth, but most are so programmed in Origin that they are hopelessly lost.

Prior from Stargate


Envoy of the Ori and teacher of Origin. Priors are governed by the Book of Origin, which they often carry with them to give to individuals or entire peoples. Priors have been given the secrets of the universe by the Ori to spread the word of their godliness. This gives them great strength. With a single look they can choke and kill, manipulate the wind or pin someone to the ground.

Over the seasons we don't feel there have been too many really good enemies in STARGATE ATLANTIS, we feel the best are given below

Wraith from Stargate Atlantis


A hive-based species that harvest humans for nourishment. Countless worlds in the Pegasus Galaxy live in constant fear of the Wraith, who return periodically to cull their human herds. The Ancients first encountered the Wraith many thousands of years ago. Although the Wraith have advanced technology, it is interior to that of the Ancients. However, have vast numbers and although an Ancient battleship can defeat several Wraith battleships, the Wraith could would have hundreds of battleships for every Ancient one. Ultimately, only the Ancient city of Atlantis was all that remained. The Wraith attacked Atlantis with their most powerful weapons, but the Ancients' shield held, but defeated, the Ancients decided to submerge the city and leave through the Stargate to Earth. The Wraith have a frighteningly efficient regenerative mechanism in their genetic makeup, allowing their bodies to heal themselves. Even bullet holes quickly seal themselves like evaporating water. Their regenerative abilities are so powerful that it is unlikely that the Wraith ever die from natural causes.

Human Form replicator Atlantis


Created by the ancients to fight the Wraith but became so dangerous that the Ancients turned on them and attempted to destroy them. However, with just a few blocks left and 10,000 years to replicate they rebuilt themselves.
