Other technology

A Ha'tak is a Goa'uld attack vessel.


The ships are as large as the Great Pyramid and are installed with hyperdrives that allow them to enter subspace and journey across the galaxy. The ships have Ring Transporters aboard. The ships have advanced sensors that can detect when the ship is being view, even by a telescope. (SG1: "Within the Serpent's Grasp", "The Serpent's Lair", "Singularity") The hull can resist intense radiation for about an hour. (SG1: "Enemies")

Known Locations


The peltac is the control room of the ship. A control console sits in this room in front of a viewing window covered by a force field. (SG1: "Within the Serpent's Grasp")

Shield generator room

A large room that permeates through various levels of the ship. The shield generators are located at the bottom. (SG1: "The Serpent's Lair")


A series of cells are located aboard to store prisoners. (SG1: "The Serpent's Lair")

Glider bays

At the bottom of the ship are the glider bays where the Death gliders are stored. When needed, the gliders drop down and exit through the bottom of the ship. (SG1: "Within the Serpent's Grasp", "The Serpent's Lair") Force fields are installed across the outer door to allow gliders to enter and leave without depressurizing the bay. (SG1: "Descent")

Computer core

The ships have large room where the computer core is located. (SG1: "Descent")

Auxiliary relay room

There are rooms where controls can be activated. (SG1: "Descent")

Storage room

Large storage rooms allow supplies and even a Stargate to be stored aboard. (SG1: "Within the Serpent's Grasp")




Ha'tak's have hyperdrives for travel between planets. The hyperdrives can typically travel about 87 light years per day. (SG1: "Enemies")

Sublight engines

The ships used sublight engines for movement and slowing down after exiting hyperspace. (SG1: "Enemies")

Escape pods

The ships have numerous escape pods that are sent through pressurized tubes. (SG1: "Descent")


A Ha'tak used by Nirrti was left near Hanka to observe what happened after Nirrti killed all the people; when the ship was detected by Jack O'Neill and Teal'c they launched death gliders to attack. (SG1: "Singularity") Apophis' Ha'tak and Klorel's Ha'tak journeyed to Earth for an attack, but C-4 destroyed Klorel's Ha'tak and Apophis' Ha'tak which was without shields was destroyed as well. (SG1: "Within the Serpent's Grasp", "The Serpent's Lair") The System Lords launched two Ha'tak's to attack the Tok'ra when their location was revealed. (SG1: "The Tok'ra, Part 2") Two of Heru'ur's Ha'tak's were destroyed by Tollan Ion cannons in orbit of Tollana and one of Zipacna's was later destroyed as well. (SG1: "Pretense") A Ha'tak being constructed on Erebus was held up with anti-gravity devices and one of them was destroyed which caused the ship to sink to the ground and be destroyed. (SG1: "Orpheus")
