Summary

Kull Warrior Nullifier technology was developed to counteract the life-giving energy of Anubis' Kull Warriors, humanoid creatures created in a lab, animated with technology similar to the Ancients' Telchak Device, and implanted with brainwashed Goa'uld symbiotes. (Concept introduced in 7.11 "Evolution Part 1")

With the Jaffa Rebellion going strong, Anubis needed a more faithful servant who knew no mercy and would maintain a one-track mind in the fulfilling of his goal. The Kull Warrior's humanoid form was created in a laboratory where Anubis "grew" the body and gave life to its inanimate tissue with a device derived from the technology of the Ancients since referred to as the Telchak Device because it was the Goa'uld Telchak who used it to create the first sarcophagus. Once the warrior's body was animated, it was implanted with a Goa'uld symbiote which had been brainwashed to be completely loyal. (7.11 "Evolution Part 1", 7.12 "Evolution Part 2")

Bra'tac and Teal'c encountered their first Kull Warrior on a planet where the minor Goa'uld System Lords Tilgath and Ramius were holding a summit. Anubis sent this lone Warrior to kill these two so that he could absorb their domains. Their Jaffa were also killed, showing that Anubis had no intention of absorbing them into his army as had been the practice of the System Lords for thousands of years. The Kull Warrior exhibited its relentlessness and strength, but died suddenly. Upon examination, Jacob Carter/Selmak determined that the Kull Warriors were engineered for strength and loyalty, but not for longevity. Selmak also recognized the energy signature of the Warrior's tissue as being very similar to the sarcophagus, a technology that itself had been derived from the Ancients' original healing device. The Goa'uld Telchak used this Ancient device as the basis of his technology, and Anubis himself coveted it, but was never able to locate where Telchak had hidden it. Selmak said that the only way to develop a weapon against these Warriors was to find the original Ancient technology. (7.11 "Evolution Part 1", 7.12 "Evolution Part 2")

It was necessary for the team to capture a live Warrior in order to interrogate it to find out its base of operations. With the help of Rebel Jaffa within Ramius' ranks, they captured a Warrior who had been sent to finish what the other Warrior had started. The Kull Warriors were "born" on Tartarus, and Carter led her team there to gain more information on their number and perhaps even destroy their laboratory of origin. In the meantime, Dr. Daniel Jackson and Dr. Bill Lee went to Honduras to find the Telchak Device, assuming that Telchak was the Mayan god Chac and that his technology was the origin of the Fountain of Youth myth. They found the device and brought it home at about the same time that Carter and her team returned after having destroyed the Goa'uld queen that was spawning the Warriors' symbiotes. They also reported that the Kull Warrior army was comprised of thousands of these creatures and that it was indeed a high priority to develop a weapon against them soon. (7.11 "Evolution Part 1", 7.12 "Evolution Part 2")

The Device was taken to the Alpha Site where Jacob/Selmak could study it. Carter also aided in its development. They modified one of the Tok'ra's Transphase Eradication Rods (TERs) to emit the counteractive energy blast, but it was only working at 70% efficiency. While Carter was recalibrating the power unit, the Alpha Site was attacked by Anubis' forces that included Kull Warriors. The nullifier prototype didn't kill the Warrior that targeted their lab, but it did slow it down some. Carter finished her calibration and the two took off for the woods with the Warrior chasing them close behind. When the Site was overrun, the commander initiated the self-destruct to protect the prototype's development. Anubis had attacked the Site specifically to destroy the research, and this was why the Warrior was relentlessly chasing Carter. (7.16 "Death Knell")

O'Neill and Teal'c found Carter after she had been running from the Warrior for days. They quickly upgraded the TER that Jack had with him and killed the Warrior. The design was 100% effective! (7.16 "Death Knell")

Kull Warrior nullified
The next step in the Nullifier's development was to make a unit to attach to the Tau'ri's weapon of choice, the P-90 personal defense weapon. These adaptations were mass produced and became part of the standard equipment used by the SG teams as long as the Warriors were still out there. They attached near the weapon's scope and had blue flickering LED indicator lights. The energy blast was also blue. Key uses of the attachment:
  • Used against the Kull Warriors sent by Anubis to the Antarctic Outpost where SG-1 were priming an Ancient weapon to destroy his fleet that was in Earth's orbit and in the skies of Antarctica. (7.21 "Lost City Part 1", 7.22 "Lost City Part 2")
  • Part of the equipment given to those being trained in the virtual reality program designed to simulate an infiltration of the SGC base by Kull Warriors. (8.06 "Avatar")
  • Used by Daniel Jackson against an apparent Kull Warrior that had boarded the Prometheus while en route to the Pegasus Galaxy to determine the status of the Atlantis Expedition. As it turned out, the weapon didn't work because it was a human inside the Warrior's armor. (8.12 "Prometheus Unbound")
  • P-90s fitted with the Nullifier were given to the Rebel Jaffa and were used to defeat the Kull Warrior army at Dakara. (8.17 "Reckoning Part 2", 8.18 "Threads")

Anubis had sent his entire Kull Warrior army to defeat the Rebel Jaffa on Dakara, so after the Rebels terminated them using Nullifiers, it is doubtful that any Warriors remain alive. If there were survivors, they would not have lasted long since the Warriors were not bred for longevity. The Nullifier is no longer need as a regular attachment on the SG teams' weaponry.
