Why did the Goa'uld leave Earth alone?

Why did the Goa'uld leave Earth alone?

Postby McAvoy » Sat May 18, 2013 10:13 pm

In the series we heard that Ra and Goa'uld were driven off by a rebellion. However these seems to be indications that they came back afterwards such as Goa'ulds taking on names that did not exist during that time.

The only explanation is that the Asgard protected Earth for awhile before the Goa'uld gave up and left Earth alone.

I assumed that they visited off and on but no one every cared enough to take the plant as their own. Other than humans the Earth didn't offer them anything that they needed/wanted. Eventually the Asgard stepped in to help the humans.

I alwyas wondered that as well, it shows half a dozen Goa'uld that have taken personalities from Earth culture up to a few hundred years ago, when we would of had a large population. The only thing we dont have in Naquida.

Well it could have been mined long ago by the Ancients. Remember the Ancients were on Earth before Atlantis left and then returned afterwards.

I think the last let's say 500 years (I would have to look up the 'youngest god a Goa'uld would be) Earth was forgotten as a backwater planet. It could have also been inside Asgard sphere of influence and while not directly protected by the treaty, it could have easily made Goa'uld's life difficult.

As far as a desire for humans goes... The Goa'uld seemed to have relatively little use for humans other than very low level slaves, and they had tons of those already. They had the Jaffa for their main source of "power"

Pretty much. I wonder how many humans they had to take off Earth to populate the dozens if not hundreds of worlds the Goa'uld had.

The planets were not very population heavy and had been "seeded" quite some time ago so population growth was happening by itself. plus, I would think that they would be more likely to relocate people from seeded planets as opposed to "new" humans from Earth because the seeded planets would already have the worship and fear in them.

Well yeah. But we have seen populations on other worlds. You would need a certain number of humans for genetic diversity and so humans can populate the planet on their own without help.
