Transport rings platform

From The Stargate Omnipedia


Storage base that houses Goa'uld transport rings when they are inactive. Ring platforms can be installed in the ground, or above in ceilings, or other confines. They are portable, and are equipped with sensors to detect the location of other rings.

Ring platforms are commonly installed in Goa'uld ships, and on Goa'uld controlled-planets. The Tok'ra also use the rings to transport into their underground tunnels.

An Ori-made ring platform

As the Ancients were the ones to originally develop the technology, their age-old kin the Ori also possess it. An Ori version of the platform can be rapidly deployed on a planet's surface using a fighter craft. It includes its own self-contained power source and is ready to receive troops immediately when used for a rapid planetary invasion.
