P3X-118 was a planet visited by SG-6. While there, the team encountered an alien race who overpowered them, accessing their minds and mimicking their appearance. The aliens returned to the SGC impersonating SG-6 and took over the SGC. This gave the aliens a foothold while they could determine if Earth was a viable new homeworld. Impersonating General Hammond, one of the aliens got Major Davis to arrive where he too was mimicked, presumably in an attempt to infiltrate the Pentagon.
At one point the alien impersonating Fraiser refers to the Goa’uld as the “dominant parasitical species of this galaxy”, implying that the Milky Way is not the aliens’ home galaxy and therefore P3X-118 was not their original location. Nothing more is known of either the conditions of P3X-118 or the size and nature of the aliens’ presence there.
Samantha Carter and Teal’c were immune to the aliens’ technology due to the naquadah in their blood. Eventually Mjr. Carter came up with a countermeasure to the mimicking device. Col. O’Neill and Mjr. Davis, who were freed from the aliens’ control when their mimicked counterparts died, with Teal’c launched a counteroffensive. Col. Maybourne and reinforcements arrived, and several aliens retreated back through the Stargate, presumably to P3X-118. Mjr. Carter shut down the wormhole before all escaped, but the remaining aliens self-destructed.
General Hammond ordered the coordinates to P3X-118 locked out of the dialing computer to prevent encountering the alien race again.
