Tollan (Stargate)

From Academic Kids

The Tollan are a fictional human culture in the sci-fi television show, Stargate SG-1.

The Tollan was the first advanced human civilization encountered by SG-1. In the first-season episode "Enigma", the Tollans' original planet, also called Tollan, was being destroyed. They had given technology to a less advanced human society which used it to make war. The destruction of that planet knocked Tollan out of its standard orbit and caused it to be destroyed. It was evacuated, and the final Tollan team was going to destroy the stargate, but due to volcanic activity were incapacitated before they could. SG-1 saved them, to the inexplicable dismay of their leader, Omoc. However, another Tollan, Narim, took a liking to Samantha Carter. It soon became apparent that their technology was overtly sought after by the US Military, as they could walk through walls and send messages faster than the speed of light. With the help of the Nox SG-1 managed to get the Tollan survivors to safety.

The Tollan's technological knowledge was so advanced that they were able, with the help of the Nox to build their own stargate on their new planet, since the planet they had moved to did not have one. The Tollans stargate was smaller than that of the ones built by the Ancients which prompted a remark from Col. Jack O'Neill "Well our one's bigger".

Their new planet Tollana was protected with Ion Cannons and housed their peaceful society until Anubis with the help of his acquired knowledge of Ancient technology was able to protect his ships from them. Anubis wished to use their phase-shifting technology to send bombs through defenses like the Iris protecting Stargate Command. SG-1 discovered this plot with the help of Narim after the death of Omoc – possibly killed by the Tollan Curia. Anubis attacked Tollana and it is believed he wiped out the Tollan society.

Tollan's designation is P3X-775. Tollana's gate address is kept confidential by the SGC.Template:Stargate Racesfr:Tollan (Stargate)
