Escape pod

A Goa'uld escape pod from a tel'tak.

An Escape pod is a small, usually single-manned vessel used for escaping a larger vessel in case of a serious emergency. The Prometheus is known to have escape pods. (SG1: "Grace")

Goa'uld Tel'taks are also known to possess escape pods, which resemble sarcophagi. They are equipped with heat dampening shields and anti-gravity wave generators that allow them to slow their descent and enter the atmosphere safely. (SG1: "Jolinar's Memories", "Deadman Switch")

Anubis' mothership possessed a larger escape pod that was able to travel through hyperspace. (SG1: "Homecoming")

Wraith hive ships possess escape pods. Ronon Dex used one to flee a hive ship with Doctors Jennifer Keller and Rodney McKay. The three ended up stranded when both the friendly and enemy forces left the area, but McKay was able to land the pod on a nearby planet with a Stargate which they used to return to Atlantis.
