First appearance Stargate

Earth, also called Terra by the Ancients, Tau'ri by the Goa'uld, and Midgard by the Cimmerians, is the home planet of the Earthlings or Tau'ri (name given by the Goa'uld and the Jaffa), and second cradle of humanity.




Around 8,000 BC, the Goa'uld enslaved the indigenous and took some on other planets in the Milky Way galaxy using the Stargate network (Stargate, SG-1: "The Enemy Within").

Detailled evolution[edit]

Stargate (1995)[edit]

When Ra discovers that the Earth Stargate has been reopened, he decides to send back a naquadah-enhanced nuclear bomb through the gate in order to destroy it. The bomb eventually exploses inside Ra's mothership located on Abydos' orbit, thanks to Colonel Jack O'Neill and Doctor Daniel Jackson who use transportation rings to send the ticking bomb from the Abydos pyramid to the ship.
