Tollan Curia

The Tollan are a race of humans from Tollana.


The Tollan are highly advanced with interstellar communication, phase shifting technology, emotion recorders, spaceship technology, and Ion cannons. (SG1: "Enigma", "Pretense")


The Tollans developed on their planet and eventually made contact with another civilization on a nearby planet, sharing energy generation technology. The people used the technolgy to make war and in a single Tollan day they had destroyed their world. The destruction caused Tollans orbit to shift and a number of volcanoes to begin erupting on the planet, slowly making it uninhabitable. The Tollans left their world and planned on sealing the Stargate to prevent anyone from going there. SG-1 arrived to find the team sealing the Stargate dead or dying around the Stargate. Later a flow of lava covered the Stargate. A small number of Tollans were evacuted to Earth but later went to live with the Nox. (SG1: "Enigma") They became friends with the Tok'ra at some point, sharing some of their technology with them. (SG1: "Serpent's Song") With help from the Nox, the small group of Tollan managed to get to Tollana, working with them to build a Stargate for Tollana. When the Goa'uld Klorel crashed on Tollana and both Klorel and Skaara wanted control over Skaara's body, a Triad was convened to determine who would get control. SG-1, the Goa'uld Zipacna and the Nox Lya served as each side of the Triad. After voting in favor of Klorel, Zipacna launched an attack on Tollana, but luckily Teal'c and Lya had hidden one of the Ion cannons which destroyed the attacking ships. (SG1: "Pretense") The Tollan were later asked by the SGC to send a ship to Edora to rescue Jack O'Neill but they couldn't have a ship anywhere near the planet for over a year. (SG1: "A Hundred Days")

When the Rogue NID had stolen technology from the Tollan, they approached Stargate Command and were planning on severing ties with them, but were convinced to let the SGC find those who had stolen their property. A plan was developed to have SG-1 go to Tollana to try to negotiate with the Tollan for technology but they would refuse and O'Neill would get annoyed and steal some technology, to make the Rogue NID get into contact with him. After their technology had been recovered and the rogue NID had been caught, the Tollan stated that they had regained their trust. (SG1: "Shades of Grey") Jackson contacted the Tollan about rescuing O'Neill and Teal'c aboard the X-301 as it headed away from Earth but they said they couldn't have a ship near them for over a year. (SG1: "Tangent") The Tollan were forced by the Goa'uld Tanith, who now had shields that resisted Tollan ion cannons, to build Phase shifting weapons for them. The operation was done in secret and when the weapons were destroyed, Tanith attacked Tollana. The Tollan began to fight back and escape but their efforts were not going well. (SG1: "Between Two Fires")
