Goa'uld 4 was part of a group of Goa'uld that traveled through the Trial of Ra together and got trapped on the fourth planet for a hundred and forty-seven years.


Background information[]

In about 1852, this Goa'uld joined a group of six others that undertook the Trial of Ra together to gain a position in Ra's upper ranks. Together, the group made it through the first three planets of the Trial, but were unable to complete the fourth planet in time for an unknown reason, possibly being unable to find the Stargate address and password in the allotted time. Due to the nanocyites in their blood and the rules of the Trial, the group was unable to leave the planet in their current hosts without dying. Over time, the group located the spot on the back of the Sphinx's head where the address and password were hidden and did their best to erase the symbol signifying its location to strand anyone else that came through so that they could have an escape route.


In 1999, SG-1 was forced into the Trial of Ra by the System Lord Mat in an effort to get revenge for the death of Ra. While walking across the planet, SG-1 discovered the presence of other Goa'uld when one of the group, driven insane with desperation, attacked Colonel Jack O'Neill to take him as a host and was killed in the process. As SG-1 examined the Sphinx for clues, three of the others attack, firing at them with a sonic weapon that created explosions near the team. After Teal'c opened fire with his staff weapon and Colonel Jack O'Neill with his MP5, the Goa'uld retreated into the nearby gullies. As Dr. Daniel Jackson worked on the riddle, Major Samantha Carter spotted two more Goa'uld at their rear and they were quickly driven off by fire from O'Neill.

Laying down covering fire, the team retreated into a nearby gully and determined that they were facing five Goa'uld, three of whom were between them and the planet's Stargate. For better safety, SG-1 headed for a group of trees nearby, but were attacked by two Goa'uld as they made their way across the last open ground. Once more laying down covering fire for each other, they made it to the trees and the two Goa'uld retreated. However, they returned shortly after and the Goa'uld chased SG-1 for three and a half with neither side having any success in harming the other side. Finally, one of the Goa'uld attempted to ambush Daniel alone, but was killed in the attempt.

After Carter and Teal'c located the address and password, this Goa'uld and another ambushed them on the way back to the Stargate. As this Goa'uld attacked with the sonic weapon, the other Goa'uld attempted to attack Carter and Teal'c from the rear as the hid in a clump of rocks. Sensing the Goa'uld's approach, Teal'c spun around and fired upon it with his staff weapon. Teal'c's fire first sideswiped and then finally cut the Goa'uld down. As this Goa'uld advanced, Carter fired on him with an MP5, but the bullets bounced off of a personal shield emitted by his kara kesh.

Finally, to conserve ammunition, Carter ceased firing at the Goa'uld. Seeing this as an admission of defeat, the Goa'uld leapt onto a rock, ordering the two to bow down before their god and accept the gift of eternal life that was their blessing. Instead, Carter flung a grenade at the Goa'uld. The blast knocked the Goa'uld off his perch, sending him rolling on the ground. Before he could recover, Teal'c threw a knife into his kara kesh, disabling the Goa'uld's personal shield. With the Goa'uld now defenseless, Teal'c killed him with a blast from his staff weapon. As they departed, Carter recovered the knife from his corpse. (SG1: "The Barque of Heaven")
