Jup, an Oranian, is a notoriously unscrupulous trader and smuggler. Crafty, devious, and untrustworthy, although not especially clever, Jup and his partner Tenat operated in conjunction with the Lucian Alliance. Tenat and Jup had made an arrangement with Vala to trade refined weapons grade naquadah in exchange for her ship, however Vala had lost her ship in battle, and she hijacked the Prometheus to trade instead. Her deal fell through when Daniel regained control of the ship and Prometheus escaped under fire from the Goa'uld.
Tenat and Jup had lost both the ship and the naquadah in the botched trade, a failure that did not sit well with the Lucian Alliance, and a price was put on Vala's head, dead or alive. Tenat and Jup were ordered by Vosh to bring back Vala, and they proposed to trade naquadah for her capture. Meanwhile, SG-1 needed to acquire Tenat's cargo ship, and Mitchell and Teal'c posed as bounty hunters offering to trade Vala and Daniel for the naquadah. Jup ringed aboard the cargo ship with Vala and Daniel as prisoners, intending to ring Tenat up after him to make their escape, but Vala and Daniel overpowered him as planned and deposited him back on the planet, ringing up Mitchell and Teal'c instead. SG-1 escaped in the captured cargo ship, leaving Tenat and Jup behind and empty-handed once again.
