Any opinions about the individual table (I thought the page needed one as it makes it look neater than before. I also tried it on Jack O'Neill, Samantha Carter and Daniel Jackson)--GingerM 21:21, 26 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I think it will be even more useful for the less major characters. Thanks for creating it! There's a similar table for the user pages, if you're interested. --CocoaZen 02:49, 27 Oct 2005 (UTC)

More About Teal'c[edit source]

I don't know much about SG-1 so I couldn't do this, but could anyone try and add a section that goes more into detail about Teal'c himself? It seems to have a relatively detailed history of his actions but not an accurate description of who he is.

i just wanted to know what the apostrophe represents

Surely, a detailed history of his actions is who he is. He's a Jaffa, who was first prime to Apophis before defecting to the Tau'ri. That pretty much sums up who he is, I'm not sure how else to say it. Also, I'm not sure about the apostraphe bit, several Jaffa have apostrophes in their name, like Rya'c and Bra'tac. Plus I realise two people have asked two different questions, so I thought I'd "kill two birds with one stone" as the saying goes and answer them both. -- Matthew R Dunn 16:45, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

About the apostrophe: It's probably a pronunciation mark. The symbol ( ' ) is often used to indicate a glottal stop. Since English does not have this phonetic feature it is often dropped in pronunciaitons. Some characters in the show indicate it in their speech by a pause (or possibly they are pronouncing the stop, but it just can't be heard). The most obvious example is "gou'ald" with some making an abrupt stop after "gou" and than pronouncing "ald" and others pronouncing it as "guld" and just blending it all together.

Teal'c "Misquotes"[edit source]

I think those quotes are really funny, but the quote "Are considering the tactict I am considering?" is actually "Are you considering the same tactic as I?" so should we change that? edit: or is that on purpose?

Indeed[edit source]

Is there anyone who's even nerdier than me who knows the exact number of times Teal'c has said 'Indeed' over the years? Otherwise I think I better start counting.. Assmaster 3000 14:54, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Chief Master Sergeant?![edit source]

Chief Master Sergeant?! What the ....! Since when Teal'c is serving in the U.S. Air Force? Maybe Daniel Jackson and Vala Mal Doran have military rank too!! Vilnisr T | C - 18:32, October 2, 2010 (UTC)

He was given the honorary rank of Chief Master Sergeant in the novel Stargate SG-1: Four Dragons. Quite a good story, too. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 18:51, October 2, 2010 (UTC)

Then, as it's not a real rank, I suggest to remove it from infobox, you can mention it in the article. Richard Dean Anderson have the honorary rank of Brigadier General of the United States Air Force, but he still in not a U.S. General. Vilnisr T | C - 08:40, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

He actually makes use of his rank during the novel, which is why I added it to the infobox. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 11:36, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

But he can't use honorary rank, he is not a USAF military, honorary rank have no real power, like RDA can't use his rank of General. To have a rank of Chief Master Sergeant, Teal'c would have to be a U.S. military, but he isn't! Vilnisr T | C - 12:46, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

Yet he does, so it's not really up for discussion. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 18:42, October 3, 2010 (UTC)
Acording to the stargate canon page, " Bill McCay's Stargate novels are set in this universe, but, as in the SG-1/Atlantis/Universe canon, novels are not considered canon", this means is novels are not set in canon.
But we should add a note that makes it clear that the writer of 4D was an idiot who didn't do his research. Jauh0 (talk) (Contribs) 16:42, April 24, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm not very good at doing this so I hope I am doing it right.
I think it should stay, here is why.
I just watched the episode "The Enemy Within" General Hammon calls Teal'c Sergeant right before he embarks on his first mission with SG-1. It's near the very end. So, he coudl have been anything from E-5 to E-9. The General called him Seargent. I'm sure the writers forgot about it, and it's probably because they made a lot of mistakes in th ebegining, but there it is. 173.56.50.46 06:02, March 9, 2012 (UTC)
I checked this for myself, and Hammond says "Welcome aboard, son," not "sergeant," at 42:33. I move that "Chief Master Sergeant" be removed from the info box. 72.161.202.252 03:10, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

name[edit source]

why add "of Chulak"? isn't that more of a title instead of his name? ASDF1239 DISCUSSION 08:45, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

dont bother trying to change Jaymachs mind, he accepts any stargate material Unsigned comment by Escyos (talk • contribs). (talk) (Contribs) 11:12, January 2, 2011 (UTC)

I'm perfectly aware of Jaymach's policy, i was asking for his rationale in this case. ASDF1239 DISCUSSION 06:02, October 5, 2010 (UTC)
Stuff like that is the reason why this wiki is considered a joke on Gateworld. --D Toccs
Maybe I should join Gateworld then. Jauh0 (talk) (Contribs) 18:58, January 2, 2011 (UTC)
But seriously, I think just "Teal'c" should be enough, the latter part is just a kind of differentiation from all the other Teal'cs in the galaxy. And we don't change "Jonathan 'Jack' O'Neill" to "O'Neill of Minnesota" Or George Hammond to "Hammond of Texas". Jauh0 (talk) (Contribs) 23:00, January 2, 2011 (UTC)
Yea h i dont get it either. He wasnt refered to as Tealc of chulak ever. Unless im wrong Togggggl (talk) (Contribs) 07:37, January 3, 2011 (UTC)
::The reason it was moved to "Teal'c of Chulak" is that Stargate SG-1: Roleplaying Game states that the "of <whatever>" of a Jaffa's name is their formal Jaffa name, rather than just an affectation. As such, because Teal'c is called "Teal'c of Chulak" in several episodes, along with Stargate SG-1: Four Dragons, the page was moved to his most formal name. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 00:10, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
But the Jaffa practically don't use anything but their first names, and they don't even seem to have any family names, so I think it's just unneccesary. As I remember both Teal'c and Bra'tac are "of Chulak", so I really think it's just a jaffa way to say peoples home place, like O'Neills Minnesota and Hammonds Texas(Though both of them should be "of Colorado", since Teal'c is "of Chulak" even when it's not his original homeworld.). Therefore I think it's unneeded, uncared for and unloved. Jauh0 (talk) (Contribs) 11:26, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
As I've said elsewhere, we go with character's full names regardless of personal feeling. Do I think "of Chulak" is silly? Yes. Given source material, is it the character's more formal name? Also yes. Thus I moved the page. Also, had Hammond or Jack been Jaffa then yes I would have moved their page to "Hammond of Texas" and "O'Neill of Minnesota" but, as they're not, they use their full names. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 14:35, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
I agree with Jaymach - I also don't see what all the fuss is about, it's hardly going to confuse anyone. It's Teal'c of Chulak, that's what his name is. Jack has this interesting "O'neill" word stuck on the end of his name, but we don't just call him Jack on the wiki, despite him very rarely being called the full Jack O'Neill in conversation. I know that's a bad example but, in a formal/professional style wiki, you give people full names. Sman789 (talk) (Contribs) 18:22, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
Well as Jaymach said we use peoples full names, but my point is that Teal'c is his full name. But thanks to Sman for bringing me back to ground level. Jauh0 (talk) (Contribs) 18:35, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
His full name would be "Teal'c of Chulak" as per the Jaffa naming conventions set out in the Roleplaying Game. If it had just been an affectation used by Jaffa to refer to each other then I wouldn't have moved the page. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 18:55, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

Teal'c of Chulak" is a title not a name. The way this wiki dictates it might aswell be called "Brother Teal'c of Chulak". No wonder this wiki is considered a joke, you can't blame them. --Anythingspossibleforapossible (talk) (Contribs) 19:00, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

If it weren't for the Roleplaying Game specifically stating that the "of <whatever>" part of a Jaffa's name was their full formal name then yes, it would simply be a title. As source material states otherwise, however, we have to go with the Jaffa naming conventions which were approved of by MGM. "Brother" would be a title seeing as it is not included in the naming conventions. If you want to consider the site a joke, then go right ahead. It won't change the fact that we use all licensed material as source material rather than fan's opinions. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 19:06, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
The article's title is a fan's opinion. Someone said it was considered a joke. Anythingspossibleforapossible (talk) (Contribs) 19:27, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, it's not anyone's opinion. When Stargate SG-1: Roleplaying Game says that "of <whatever>" is part of the Jaffas name and Teal'c is called "Teal'c of Chulak" then there's absolutely no other way to take it. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 19:37, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
If you insist on standing by this ridiculous name change. Then by your own standards it should be Teal'c of the Tauri. In Threads when he and Bra'tac are made bloodkin of all jaffa, they are inducted as Bra'tac of Chulak and Teal'c of the Tauri. --D Toccs (talk) (Contribs) 02:02, January 6, 2011 (UTC)
I agree with Jaymach on this one, even if we think it's a bit ridiculous, the wiki should use all officially licensed material, I'm pretty sure there's a fanfic wiki if someone prefers otherwise. I wonder Jaymach, if you could quote the section of text where it states information about this? It would certainly assure other people that you're not misunderstanding it. Also, I'm interested in how the naming convention works, and when the book/game is based (Before the threads episode? Where they honoured Teal'c as "of the Tau'ri"). As "D Toccs" is right that at the ceremony on Dakara, Teal'c was deemed "Teal'c of the Tau'ri", does the naming convention require birthplace? Or can it change based on what the Jaffa is known for, I know this is speculation on my part, which is why I asked for the quote from the game for clarification. Sorry for bringing up an old topic, just felt I needed to address the specifics of this. Supertrinko (talk) (Contribs) 10:09, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
The exact quote relating to using "of the <whatever" is "Family Names: Jaffa that belong to a larger tribe may be called by their Family names and their place of origin. This form is normally used only in formal ceremonies or in instances where there their identity must not be mistaken. Drey'auc of the Cord'ai Plains and Fro'1ak of the High Cliffs are both examples of a formal Jaffa name." which would seem to suggest that, as Chulak is where he's from, it would still be his full formal name. You could perhaps argue that the Tau'ri are now his family, but I'd be tempted to leave it at Teal'c of Chulak myself. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 15:25, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
Teal'c isn't from Chulak he and his mother where forced to go there after his father failed cronus and was killed . A scotsman (talk) (Contribs) 18:14, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
Stargate SG-1: The DVD Collection 54 confirms that Teal'c is indeed from Chulak. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 22:11, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
in Fair Game it states that teal'c and his mother were exciled to chulak--A scotsman (talk) (Contribs) 22:36, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, all it says is that Cronus exiled them. They then go on to say they fled to Chulak, which would make sense if it was where they were born. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 01:17, April 20, 2011 (UTC)
given the fact that his father was the first prime of Cronus he would have been born of a planet under Cronus' control. He could have gone to Chulak to become the first prime of Apophis, to get revenge on Cronus for killing his father.A scotsman (talk) (Contribs) 16:39, April 20, 2011 (UTC)
This is just getting dumb. We've had dumb debates before, but look at what we're doing now. We went back to one of the oldest pages on the wiki to change the name because it is "technically correct."
Personally, I blame the writers. Cuz we no longer have anything better to do. Lol Seriously though. I realize its right...maybe....but is it necessary. -Phoenix304 (talk) (Contribs) 18:52, April 20, 2011 (UTC)

Age[edit source]

I know the story in unending made him 50 years older but doe did not severly compromise him as he was allready older and now they have added another 50 years to the man's life. thats funny by the way making him a SG-1 member for over 63 years:P
