03.15 Episode 59 (#6527)
Airdate: January 21, 2000

Klorel, the Goa'uld in the host body of Skaara, crash lands on Tollana, the new Tollan home world. There he is detained for "Triad," an ancient ceremony of justice, to determine which personality will retain control of his body. O'Neill and Daniel will argue in defense of Skaara, while the Goa'uld Zipacna will speak for Klorel. But during the proceedings, SG-1 suspects that the Goa'uld are preparing for an attack, and they must fight to defend not only Skaara, but all of Tollana. With help from Lya, of the Nox, Skaara is victorious, and the Goa'uld attack is successfully thwarted.

Destinations & Inhabitants


Destinations & Inhabitants



  • The Tollans were relocated with help from the Nox, to their new home world of Tollana. Outside the original gate system, they built their own stargate there.
  • High Chancellor Travell is head of the Curia, highest governing body of the Tollan.
  • The Triad is an ancient Tollan ceremony of justice, similar to a trial, in which two "seekers" (defendants) select "archons" (attorneys) to represent them until a decision is reached by a third neutral party.
  • Lord Zipacna, Klorel's archon, was one of Apophis's most loyal underlords.
  • Klorel crashed on Tollana while fleeing two mother ships dispatched by Heru'ur, knowing that they would be destroyed by the Tollan defense grid and ion cannons.
  • The Tollan detachment device, worn around the chest, suppresses a Goa'uld's ability to silence his host, thus allowing each to speak at will, indicated by the red light for a symbiote, blue light for the host.
  • The Tok'ra removed Klorel from Skaara, to be sent to another Goa'uld planet.


  • Ours is bigger. [O'Neill]
  • Is that a money-back-if-you're-not-completely-alive guarantee? [O'Neill]
