Ancients

Ayiana of the Ancients
The Ancients are the builders of the Stargate. They were a race of humans who lived millenia before those on Earth. The group known as The Others are the Ascended Beings of the Ancients. Those Ancients who did not ascend with The Others died of a plague that swept their galaxy a very long time ago. The Ancients are the ancient ones whose language evolved into Latin and Dr. Daniel Jackson identified them as those who were the builders of the roads spoken of in ancient Earth writings.

Ascended Beings

Daniel Jackson as an Ascended Being
The Ascended Beings exist as a form of energy on a higher plane. They can shape themselves into a form familiar with those with whom they interact, much like Daniel Jackson did for his friend Jack O'Neill in the Season Six episode Abyss.

Aschen

Molum of the Aschen
The Aschen were first introduced in the future Season Four episode 2010. They are a highly developed people and considered very patient, but under their calm exterior lies the mind of those who would slowly and methodically kill an entire world's population in order to conquer it.

Asgard

Thor of the Asgard
The Asgard were first met by Dr. Daniel Jackson and Captain Samantha Carter on the planet Cimmeria. They are called the Roswell greys by Carter. The Asgard aligned themselves into a group of four races to share knowledge and fight the Goa'uld. The other three races were the Ancients, the Nox, and the Furlings.

Furling

We have never met the Furlings
The Furling have been mentioned as being a fourth race in an alliance with the Ancients, the Asgard, and the Nox. We have never met the Furlings and don't know what they look like or even if they still exist.

Goa'uld

The Goa'uld are parasitic creatures who have evolved into highly intelligent beings. They require a host, such as a human being, to fully use their intelligence. Their first hosts were of the Unas species, but eventually the Goa'uld found that human beings were preferable. Through the stargate network, the Goa'uld spread across galaxies and transplated humans from Earth to various planets suitable for humans to thrive. Humans were "harvested" to further the Goa'uld's race. Many of the Goa'uld who established themselves on Earth 10,000 years ago took on the persona of the mythological gods and goddesses.

Jaffa

The Jaffa are genetically altered humans of Earth, designed to carry a Goa'uld symbiote in an abdominal pouch. By incubating the larval Goa'uld, Jaffa are given extended lives (some beyond 135 years), formidable strength, and an inhanced immune system with shortened healing periods. Because of these benefits, some Jaffa become warriors in service to a Goa'uld System Lord. Other Jaffa service the Goa'uld in their temples.

Nox

Lya of the Nox
The Nox were introduced in the Season One episode The Nox.

Replicators

First Generation Replicators
The Replicators are artificial life forms which are built on nanotechnology. At first, they were created by an android named Reese as toys, but soon they became independent with the highest priority being survival through replication, hence their name. An attempt by the Asgard to stop their devouring of technologically advanced civilizations (they used the technology to create more of themselves) unintentionally led the Replicators to evolve from bug-like to humanoid. The Advanced Replicators hold the intelligence capability of their creator, Reese.

Serrakin

Warrick of the Serrakin
The Serrakin are a technologically advanced race of humanoids. They are genetically compatible with humans and many of their race have intermarried with the humans of Hebridan (Hebridians whose ancestors they freed from Goa'uld enslavement.

Unas

Chaka of the Unas
According to a theory developed by Drs. Daniel Jackson and Robert Rothman, the Unas evolved on the same planet as the Goa'uld and were, therefore, the first hosts to the symbiotes. Eventually, however, the Goa'uld preferred to take human beings as hosts because their bodies were more easily maintained. Because of their physical strength, however, the Unas became slaves of the Goa'uld, primarily used to mine the precious mineral naquadah upon which the Goa'uld's technology depends.
