    The Ancients had weapons. The Nox don't.

It was something like "to defeat evil you must deny it battle"? I say that's probably what the Nox think. And I think it's a very valid way of life. If the Goa'uld couldn't fight people because they hide very effectively they'd be stuck.
    That's a good point. Also, many other posters on this forum believe the Nox are more advanced than the Asgard. Since we don't see much of their technology, it's hard to make a fair assessment, but you're probably right. I wonder if the Nox are also more advanced than the Furlings? Hard to say.

Ancients and Nox both have mastered Stargate technology, have the ability to cloak stuff (abliet, using different means), have the power to heal and are kinda human.

    What is life like in the Nox floating city? Is it an 'Atlantis' class city? Was it a gift to the Nox by the Ancients? Are those who live in the city less 'naturalistic'? What is the relationship between the Asgard and the Nox? The Ascended Ancients and the Nox?

    Face it, we know nothing of these people. They are boring because they have been ignored by TPTB. I would love more stories about these people; but that seems like it will never happen.
    All good points. I don't think they are offshoots of the Ancients, and I don't think they are all that similar to the Ancients, so I would bet that their tech is different. The Nox are probably pretty unique, unless they are similar to the Furlings.

    I must say that i do like the nox they add a little bit of spice to the otherwise usually human alien races.

    Earth Symbol Re: Anyone else dislike the Nox?

    I just thought of something, if the PTB didn't make the nox one of the members of the alliance, we for the most part wouldn't care about them too much. They'd just be another race that hat was seen a few times and forgotten about.

    Cool Re: Anyone else dislike the Nox?

    The Nox, at least the ones on the ground, remind me of Druids back in my days of AD&D. I never much liked treehuggers! Now the ones in the sky city...those have potential!

    The Ancients had weapons when they weren't yet ascended besides, why should the posession of weapons be a measure of advancement. We consider warring societies primitive, don't we? If we follow through on that then obviously the most advanced societies have to be the ones which are the most peaceful. In this case it's the Ancients (who even though had guns in the past, now have a policy of complete non-interference) and the Nox. I think that what is stopping the Asgaard from advancing even more is that they are in danger from the replicators therefore don't have the luxury of turning themselves to more lofty ideals.

I'd bet if the galaxy was getting demolished around them, they would turn invisible and hide in their safe little world. Honestly, they were/are one of the four great races, but evidently only interested in the safety of their world.

    However, they are fairly interesting & I'd be interested in seeing more about their lifes and culture.
    This isn't directed at you sgtgary, just using the quote as a jump off point.

    1)Hiding is exactly what the Ancients did too, they are just hiding on another plane of existence. Not only that, the enemy that the Ancients left the rest of the universe (humans) to deal with, the Wraith, are far worse/stronger than the Goa'uld. And the Nox may figure if a people are ignorant enough to be dominated by the physically and spiritually parasitic Goa'uld with their message of fear and worship, then you aren't worth saving because you will just go on to bow down to someone or something else in the Goa'uld's stead.

    2)If the Asguard hadn't needed some stupid humans to hurl projectiles at the replicators we wouldn't have gotten much help from them either. They were bluffing the Goa'uld and really had no intentions of enforcing the protected planets treaty. As for their help, everything SGC has received from them was out of gratitude for various deeds against the replicators. They didn't help Earth with tech just to aid human development as an end to itself - it was payback.

    3)The Nox dont need weapons for defense, you cant hit what you cant see. And even if you think you kill them, they can come back to life. And they can do all that with a wave of a hand or two. That's power.

    4)And the Furlings, I dont know but I just want to see THOSE DAMN FURLINGS

    They are good considering the powers that they have, but they are pretty lame and weird.

    Default Bring back the Nox

    The Nox (Season 1) is still one of my favourite episodes of all time. Does anyone know if they'll be coming back in any future episodes?

    The Nox reappeared in 'Enigma' in Season 1 and 'Pretense' in Season 3. Since then they haven't been seen. Remember they've buried their gate so we can't contact them. Although our relationship with the Nox may have changed in 'Pretense' we haven't contacted them or vise versa. And "The very young do not always do as they are told."

    I too would also like to see more of the Nox. But they live in their floating invisible city and houdinied their stargate. If we tried to talk to them, they would probably make our heads disappear or something.

    I feel that the Nox will show up again. Now 6 seasons later we've only met the Nox and Asgard... you'd hope that writers would get with the program and enlighten us more about these other races before the show comes to a complete close. Below the statement I am referring to:

    During Season 2, episide 'The Fifth Race' One of the Asgard (thought it was Tho) said:

    "There was once an alliance of four great races in the galaxy. The Asgard. The Nox.."
    "Met them."
    "...the Furlings..."
    "Don't know them..."
    "...and the Ancients, the builders of the Stargates."
    "The alliance was built over many millennia. Your race has much to prove before they may interact on that level."

    I wonder if the Nox cloaking thing works against the replicators. that would be an interesting story, the Nox are attacked by the replicators, carter figures everything out, then they all go home.
