Okay so we know that 'Goa'uld queens' function much like an ant or bee queen in the sense that they're the ones largely responsible for the species reproducing since they spawn all the offspring and in large quantities. After obtaining the 'code of life' from Daniel Hathor immediately began spawning. Does this mean that a queen is capable of having offspring without the need of another Goa'uld seeding her, or were her eggs already fertilized?
Also what does this mean for the Goa'uld culturally? Apophis seemed to have some affection for Klorel, which makes sense to us humans who get attached to our children, but presumably Apophis probably had a bazillion babies when he seeded Amaunet. Why would he give such deference to Klorel as opposed to some other random larva still inside a Jaffa? My guess is that for reasons pertaining to pragmatism a Goa'uld might chose to knowledge the first to have reached maturity, or the first few as their child. In some ancient cultures usually the first born son inherited his fathers property. It simply wasn't feasible if you had five kids to split a tiny farm into 5 pieces. However humans are tribal we tend to ideally love and care for every member of our family, and cooperation has been one of our species greatest survival strategies. The Goa'uld on the other hand seem to be competitive by necessity back on P3X888 the opportunity to find and take a host was rare. This is probably also why they're so sociopathic and back stabby towards each other, and don't hesitate to kill a Jaffa by killing his or her symbiot.
I also noticed that queens seem to be rare and so I'm guessing it's ordinarily the likes of a System Lord that get the privilege of having a queen, thus insuring that only the most vicious Goa'uld get to reproduce. So yeah I'm wondering if you guys have any head canons about this somewhat strange topic, or if I'm the only odd ball that has thought about these things? I'm also new to the Stargate fandom. (I'm on season 6 of SG1 but my husband and I want to slowly work our way through the whole franchise.)
