“We are not Goa’uld.”
—Garshaw of Belote

The Tok’ra are a group of symbiotes who object to the ways of the Goa’uld and more specifically, the System Lords, deriving their name from the Goa’uld words “tok”, meaning “against” and the name of the Supreme System Lord Ra, who was killed by Colonel Jack O’Neill and Dr. Daniel Jackson on Abydos in 1995.

Unlike the Goa’uld, the symbiotes only take volunteer hosts, often those who are sick or injured, and do not suppress their minds, allowing both entities full consciousness and control over the same body.
