    Nice... A race using the Goa'uld rather than the other way around.. Too bad she/it wasn't really a Goa'uld.

    It was pretty freaky to see that may Goa'uld in those tanks in that episode. It had some neat points including the Queen and Tok'ra aspects. I think I will watch it again to refresh my memory on this one.

    I guess, in my opinion, it is implied that you have seen the episode if you are here reading about it? I will be more careful in the episode threads if this is not the case.

    The way I understand it the threads for the individual episodes are going to have spoilers in them and as long as the spoilers are for the episode that the thread is about you don't need spoiler space. If however you start mention stuff from another episode then you do need spoiler space, assuming the episode falls under the spoiler guidelines. (currently SG-1 s6,7,8 and Atlantis s1)

    Edited to say: I'm talking specifically about the episode threads.

    If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will correct me

    I've got a question......where do Queens come from? That sounds so lame but I'm curious. If all Goa'uld have no gender (according to Martouf at least) then where do the Queens come from?

    The mommy goa'uld and the daddy goa'uld... err nevermind

    I'll throw out a guess.

    I'd guess that just like the genetic memories the queen can choose which traits to pass onto the child. So one of the traits that the queen can choose to pass on is the ability to spawn more goa'uld.

    It just so happens that the very first goa'uld chose to NOT pass that ability on to the vast majority of it's children.

    What do you think?

    Sounds reasonable to me that once a queen has reached a certain age that she/it would have too in order to keep the lines going.

    I do remember something about an animal/insect (memory fails me here) that any one of a certain type can become the queen, but only one shall be queen. But since the Tok'ra didnt do anything like this, then that explination makes sense to me.

    Sorry.. One thought one was meant to talk about an episode within the official thread for that episode.

    I always assumed that select Goa'uld had the ability to become queens. I guess that they are scarce. We've only encountered what, 3 so far?

    Dark Helmet: No, it's not what you think. It's much, much worse!

    Col. Sandurz: Prepare for light speed.
    Dark Helmet: No, no, light speed is too slow.
    Col. Sandurz: Light speed too slow?
    Dark Helmet: Yes, we'll have to go right to...Ludicrous speed!
    Col. Sandurz:Ludicrous speed! Sir, we've never gone that fast before. I don't think the ship can take it.
    Dark Helmet: What's the matter, Colonel Sandurz...CHICKEN?!

    I assume that even on their primal homeworld the bulk of the Goa'uld are infertile drones; only the minority breeding Queens. I also suspect that Goa'uld in their primal state - especially non-breeders - have a very short lifespan, hence the mass of larvae produced.

    Whether Queens are spawned sporadically in response to biological imperative, or perhaps as a result of a deliberate change of diet - like a bee's royal jelly - I don't know. I suspect the former, as this would explain the shortage of Queens among the modern Goa'uld. The life expectancy has gone through the roof and the population has spent millennia in boom; there's been no need for new Queens.

    On the other hand, a steady course of cannibalism in early life might be the key.

    I was woundering if goa'uld queens were similar to a honey queens. The bee queen every so often births another queen that eventually depart the hive for to start new hive.

    Perhaps Egria had birthed a queen before Ra enslaved her in the tomb and hid her on another world. What do you think?

    Nice idea. Oooh, that could make things interesting for the Tok'ra.

    That's a good though, because a queen has to die sometime

    Oddly, I just watched this one. I taped it last night, and watched it tonight. It was a good one. I thought it was fitting for the Tok'ra to get sort of an answer, sad though that it was so final. I wonder what happened to 'ole boy who got snagged by the symbiote?
