lewl, I doubt it. Gua'ulds were made to infest the host to take complete control. This thing didn't really take control, it just made him sick =\ I don't think it had any intention of staying.

You could call every parasite a Goa'Uld cousin...

We'll probably find out that the Ancients created this thing...

They likely aren't related to the Goa'uld, but they are just as creepy! If not more.

If that parasite and a Goa'uld are somewhat related, then so is a cold...

I think it was more a proto-Goa'uld (the Goa'uld version of the Missing Link) than a cousin.

But still. You read my mind. ^^ The way it grows through the brain, depressing cells but not destroying them and suppressing personality... Maybe in 10,000 years the parasite will be able to take over the host instead of just hogging nutrients from the bloodstream (since that's what other parasites of that nature do).

Thank you!

I am tired of people screwing it up. The Goa'uld are the BEST enemy Stargate has ever had.

The Pegasus galaxy seems to be where quite a few things that ended up in the Milky Way originated.

We've already seen the Pegasus replicators.

These aquatic parasites could serve as a way to get factions from SG-1 involved in the pegasus adventure. Tok'ra and Jaffa would be interested in these things if they do turn out to be related to Goa'uld.

Maybe there is a Goa'uld cousin out there that evolved from these exact same things and carries symbiotic/parasitic relationships with sentient species in a different kind of way than the Goa'uld or Tok'ra.

I don't think so, they only relation they have to the Goa'uld is that they are internal parasites and thats a category shared by most internal parasites. They also did not seem to share any characteristics with one another. A Goa'uld are somewhat larger serpentine creatures that penetrate the neck of a host or go through the mouth in order to take over the host body and demonstrate a high level of intelligence.

Contrast this with the Second Childhood parasite which is a very small mass of tendrils that grow in the host body to the point that it slowly kills it as it grows throughout the nervous system. It also shows no form of higher intelligence and seems to be somewhat simple in its thinking which is to infect a host and grow.

So.. no similarities between the two anymore then an Unas being distant cousins to Humanity or the bugs from SG-1's Bane episode being related to the Iratus bug or the parasite from that planet Morgan le Fay visited in SG-1 which infected the brains of the user causing them to sleep and die being related to the Second Childhood parasite.
