Power cell




12.9 metric tons

A Ring Transporter is a piece of Ancient transporation technology.


Physical description

The Ring Transporters have a power cell that can be recharged. (SG1: "The Other Guys") The transporters platform mass weighs 12.9 metric tons. (SG1: "The Other Guys")


The Ring Transporter can send people and items over short distances. (SG1: "Children of the Gods", "The Serpent's Lair") They convert matter into energy and transmits it, but if another Ring Transporter is situated in the matter stream, it can intercept it. (SG1: "Jolinar's Memories", "The Devil You Know") Shield frequencies can be adjusted to allow Ring Transporters to work through them. (SG1: "Revelations") They can be used underwater and will transport everything within its radius. (SG1: "Descent") Rings on a Tel'tak can operate with about 5 meters distance. (SG1: "Fail Safe") The rings are set to drop to a certain point rather than just stack upon a surface. (SG1: "Tangent", "The Serpent's Venom") The rings need a stable platform to be formed on otherwise they will move. (SG1: "Evolution, Part 2") Wrist devices can be used to access certain secure Ring Transporters. (SG1: "Fallen", "Zero Hour") Rings will seek out the nearest set of rings when set properly and connect to them. (SG1: "Beachhead")

Other functions

The Ring Transporters can have a self-destroying mechanism in them. (SG1: "The Tok'ra, Part 2") The matter stream can be used without the Rings and can cut through certain materials. (SG1: "Lost City, Part 2")


The Ancients first invented this technology. (SG1: "Lost City, Part 2") One of them was installed in the Glastonbury Cavern. (SG1: "Avalon, Part 1") Jack O'Neill, when he found with the Anubis guard, used a Ring Transporter pin him down and kill him, sending his head and neck up into Ra's ship. O'Neill and Daniel Jackson used the Ring Transporter to send a Nuclear bomb into Ra's ship, destroying it and killing Ra. (Stargate) Apophis used a Ring Transporter to send him and his entourage to the Stargate on Chulak. (SG1: "Children of the Gods") SG-1 and Bra'tac used the Ring Transporters to go from Klorel's Ha'tak to Apophis' Ha'tak. (SG1: "The Serpent's Lair") The Tok'ra used Ring Transporters to get into their underground facilties. (SG1: "The Tok'ra, Part 2") Teal'c positioned a Tel'tak between Netu and Sokar's Ha'tak to intercept the matter stream containing SG-1, Martouf and Jacob Carter. (SG1: "Jolinar's Memories", "The Devil You Know") Dr. Jay Felger, Dr. Simon Coombs and Meyers studied Ring Transporters on at least two planets. When SG-1 were captured by the Goa'uld, Felger recharged the platform and he and Coombs used it to go to a Ha'tak in orbit. (SG1: "The Other Guys") The Kelownans found a Ring platform when digging at Goa'uld sites which ended up in a warehouse. When Jackson and Jonas Quinn used it to get off Anubis' Mothership, one of the rings caused a nearby crate to go flying and knock down a Jaffa. (SG1: "Homecoming")

A Ring Transporter was used to trap a Kull Warrior inside a Tel'tak. (SG1: "Evolution, Part 1") When another Kull Warrior boarded their cargo ship, it was drawn to the Rings and sent below the ship, which was accelerating and the rings fell apart and pulled the warrior away. (SG1: "Evolution, Part 2") When O'Neill had the Ancient Repository of Knowledge downloaded into his mind, he used a Naquadah generator to provide extra power to a Ring Transporter so its matter stream could be used to cut through the thick ice in Antarctica. (SG1: "Lost City, Part 2") Vala Mal Doran tried to escape a Tel'tak using its rings and the matter stream was pulled through a black hole. (SG1: "Beachhead") Daniel Jackson attempted to use a Ring Transporter to send a nuclear bomb to an Ori Warship from the Korolev, but the ship was destroyed and he managed to use the Rings to escape. A Goa'uld Bomb was sent from a Ring Transporter to try to destroy a warship but it appeared to fail. (SG1: "Flesh and Blood")
