Hoff was a planet in the Pegasus galaxy, which held a Stargate and was visited by the Atlantis expedition during its first year in operation.

When Major John Sheppard's team visited the planet, they were at first shown around the city, until the leader of the Hoffans informed them about the cure against the Wraith feeding they were working on. The Atlantis expedition decided to help them and with the help of Dr. Carson Beckett they were able to complete the cure and tested it on Steve, the Wraith which the Atlantis expedition had captured earlier. It however turned out that not only did the vaccine kill the Wraith who fed on a person using the substance, but that it also only worked on 50% of the people which were using it, while the other half died. Nevertheless, the Hoffans decided to use it despite Sheppard's warning them that the Wraith won't let them live with such a cure. (SGA: "Poisoning the Well")

It later turned out that the Atlantis expedition was right since the Wraith killed the entire population of the planet after they found out about the vaccine. When the drug was mysteriously administered to random planets in Pegasus in 2008, the expedition investigated the planet, only to find their repository of knowledge missing (stolen by Michael Kenmore), and only children apparently remain in the ruins of the Hoffan city.
