The System Lords


The System Lords are the mysterious group of Goa’ulds who proclaimed themselves System Lords and rule over what is left of the Goa’uld Empire.

“We have no right to play God, but neither do the Goa’uld. Now I know none of this seems real to you on paper, but trust me, they’re pure evil.”
—Daniel Jackson1

The Goa’uld (pronounced “Go-wah-oold”) are a race of sentient parasitic beings that take over hosts. Several species can serve as hosts, including humans and Unas. They originated on the planet designated P3X-888. They are also extremely egomaniacal due to their genetic memory and the adverse mental effects of the Sarcophagus technology. Goa’uld means “god” in the Goa’uld language. Races which will not serve them are completely destroyed without compromise or mercy whatsoever.
