Hebridans

General info

Home planet is Hebridan. (Forsaken)

The culture is a combination of Human and Serrakin, and is truly mixed, including inter-species marriage and breeding. (Forsaken, Space Race) (nb: the listing here covers both human and mixed for pure Serrakin, see the Misc. Aliens page.)

The news/sports announcer says that " Major Samantha Carter's participation will mark the first inclusion of an alien in Loop history." -- clearly, both human and Serrakin Hebridans are considered Hebridans first. (Space Race)

The human half of the culture is apparently descended of ancient Celts. (Forsaken)

Their world has no stargate they achieved interstellar travel with ships, and thanks to an alien race -- the Serrakin -- that joined forces and cultures with them to help them advance. (Forsaken)

Gambling was perfectly legal, with betting kiosks scattered around. (Space Race)

" Eat greeven" is an insult. (Space Race)

The Loop of Kon Garat:

An annual space race sponsored by Tech Con Group (the largest corporation on the planet), which awards a lucrative contract to the winner. The theory is that it's the best way to find the most qualified pilot with the best ship. (Space Race)

The race has resulted in deaths in the past. (Space Race)

The race is open to anyone who wants to enter. (Space Race)

The rules are simple: the winner must arrive first, and intact. (Space Race)

No smaller prizes are awarded winner takes all. (Space Race)

The Loop is a course that consists of four distinct stages: defense, navigation, maneuverability, and speed. (Space Race)

Defense: Tested each ship's defense capabilities as it flew through a field of armed drones attacking it. Both shields and apparently weapons (to destroy the drones) are acceptable methods of passing through. If a ship becomes disabled, the drones stop firing on it. (Space Race)

Navigation: The ships must fly trough the coronasphere of the local sun, which disrupts communications and navigation equipment. (Space Race)

Maneuverability: Flying through an asteroid field. (Space Race)

Speed: A looping run for the finish line. (Space Race)

At the starting line, the competing ships line up in space (along a single [horizontal] plane) behind a temporary force field waiting for the start signal. (Space Race)

In 2003, the 59th race was run for the first time, an offworld alien participated, as Sam signed on as Warrick's co-pilot on the Seberus. The prize for this Loop was a contract for deep space exploration. Ten ships competed in the race. (Space Race)

After the first phase, one ship was out (Shibo's Tritan). Muirios had the lead, followed by La'el Montrose and Golon Jarlath. (Space Race)

Ships began dropping out or falling behind because of sabotage. (Space Race)

The Seberus lost its primary engines while flying through the local sun's coronasphere if it weren't for the naquadah generator, which allowed them to bypass the damaged power converter and supply power directly to the engines, Sam and Warrick would have died as a result of being pulled straight into the sun. (Space Race)

The Oran lost almost all of its oxygen Jarlath would have died if Warrick and Sam hadn't been behind him and willing to stop to pick him up. (Space Race)

After stage two (navigation), only six ships remained out of the original ten, with the Seberus in last place. (Space Race)

After stage three (maneuverability), the Seberus had regained almost all the ground it had lost, but was forced to drop out of the race after Muirios complained about it to Del Tynan, who called Warrick and Sam to tell them he had Eamon and Teal'c hostage. (Space Race)

During stage four (speed), La'el Montrose took advantage of the few seconds that Warrick, Sam, and Jarlath bought by jamming Muirios's instruments after Eamon and Teal'c were freed, and won the race. (Space Race)

Tech Con Group:

The largest corporation on Hebridan. Motto: " Tech Con Group -- People and progress, working in total harmony." (Space Race)

Miles Hagan was its president. (Space Race)

Del Tynan was Eamon's supervisor. He had been passed over for advancement three times he believed it was because he was a human in a Serrakin-dominated culture, but in reality it was because he was under investigation for corruption. The investigators couldn't prove anything until he made a deal with the pilot Muirios and tried to rig the Loop of Kon Garat. (Space Race)

Tech con had gaming/gambling kiosks in urban centers everywhere, to facilitate betting on the Loop of Kon Garat. (Space Race)

The company philosophy encourages mutual trust no one locks their office doors. (Space Race)

Relations with Earth:

Diplomatic channels with Earth were open, but progress in developing relations was slow. (Space Race)

During the diplomatic visit Warrick had arranged for SG-1, Jack and Daniel managed to negotiate a deal whereby Earth would help bring a stargate to Hebridan, and in return would be given an ion drive to study. (Space Race)

Known Hebridans

Athea:

Wife of Warrick, a Serrakin member of the Hebridan culture. (Forsaken) When she thought Warrick was dead, she remarried and had children. (Space Race)

Coyle Boron:

A two-time winner of the Loop of Kon Garat. Before the 59th Loop began, he picked Muirios to be the winner. Mixed Serrakin/Human ancestry. (Space Race)

Aden Corso:

(" Aden" after his uncle Aden who died swimming drunk across a river on a dare." Corso" means " smells like a dead bird" in ancient Hebridian.)   (Forsaken)

" Captain" of a group of escaped prisoners. Their ship (the Seberus) had been forced to land after being caught in an asteroid storm while transporting three prisoners to a prison colony, and the captain, Warrick, had been forced to free the prisoners from stasis to keep them from dying. They had overpowered six of their eight guards and killed them (the other two were off looking for food), taking control of the ship and its defenses. (Forsaken)

They were busy still trying to find and kill their remaining two guards when SG-1 found them three years later. The three prisoners concocted a tale of being attacked by " aliens" , hoping to enlist SG-1's help in killing Warrick and his first officer.   (Forsaken)

He managed to sound credibly like the ship's captain at first, conning SG-1 into helping him and his people. He claimed that the " aliens" (his original captors) had killed five of his crew since the crash, skinning them and hanging the bodies in the trees. He spent a lot of time alone with Sam while she worked on repairing the Seberus's engines, flirting with her for most of it.   (Forsaken)

He almost lost control of his con when it became clear that Sam had indeed repaired the ship's power supply -- he began accusing her of helping them for no other reason than to gain access to the Hebridans's technology. He kept trying, though -- a while later, when Sam had discovered that the Seberus had been a prison transport, Corso spun a tale of how he'd allowed the prisoners to escape during the storm, when life support when out in the cells. He claimed that the " aliens" who had been attacking them on the planet were prisoners of war. (Forsaken)

Eamon Finn:

See Eamon Finn. (Space Race)

Warrick Finn:

See Warrick Finn. (Space Race)

Ardal Hadraig:

Sports or news announcer for TCNN, a Hebridan " television" network. (Space Race)

Miles Hagan:

President of Tech Con Group -- mixed Serrakin and Human ancestry. (Space Race)

Golon Jarlath:

Captain of the Oran, and one of the pilots racing in the 59th Loop of Kon Garat.   (Space Race)

He was once caught running illegal weapons to the outer mining colonies  -- Warrick had thought him in prison. There was no love lost between the two, with a fair amount of personal sniping back and forth whenever they came into contact.   (Space Race)

His ship lost oxygen during the race, and he was going to die, but idiotically decided that would be better than accepting help from anyone, particularly Warrick and the Seberus. He got very pissy when Warrick and Sam ignored him and saved his life anyway. He spent most of the rest of the trip telling them that they were insane to keep trying to win, then eventually helped by rigging the communications system through the naquadah generator, so he could send a directed communications blast at Muirios's ship to temporarily disable its command controls. (Space Race)

La'el Montrose:

She was an independent cargo runner from the parallel colonies, with a very fast ship she raced in the 59th Loop of Kon Garat. Despite Del Tynan's sabotage, she stayed in the race, finally winning it when Jarlath managed to disable Muirios's ship temporarily near the finish line. (Space Race)

Muirios:

One of the racers in the 59th Loop of Kon Garat his piloting skills were legendary. He was flying a crooked race, aware that Del Tynan had both outfitted Muirios's own ship with experimental Tech Con boosters not available to any other pilots, and sabotaged the other ships as added insurance that Muirios would win. (Space Race)

Lyle Pender:

" Navigator" among a group of escaped prisoners. Their ship (the Seberus) had been forced to land after being caught in an asteroid storm while transporting three prisoners to a prison colony, and the captain, Warrick, had been forced to free the prisoners from stasis to keep them from dying. They had overpowered six of their eight guards and killed them (the other two were off looking for food), taking control of the ship and its defenses. They were busy still trying to find and kill their remaining two guards when SG-1 found them three years later. The three prisoners concocted a tale of being attacked by " aliens" , hoping to enlist SG-1's help in killing Warrick and his first officer. He killed an " alien" (actually, one of his guards) that Jack had shot and wounded, in hopes of getting information from him later. He was the least successful at acting like respectable ship's crew  -- his determination to kill the " aliens" was too blatant. (Forsaken)

Tanis Reynard:

" First officer" among a group of escaped prisoners. Their ship (the Seberus) had been forced to land after being caught in an asteroid storm while transporting three prisoners to a prison colony, and the captain, Warrick, had been forced to free the prisoners from stasis to keep them from dying. They had overpowered six of their eight guards and killed them (the other two were off looking for food), taking control of the ship and its defenses. They were busy still trying to find and kill their remaining two guards when SG-1 found them three years later. The three prisoners concocted a tale of being attacked by " aliens" , hoping to enlist SG-1's help in killing Warrick and his first officer. According to Corso, Reynard didn't like men nevertheless, when Jonas took her back to the SGC for medical treatment after she was injured during a battle, she did her best to seduce him into giving her access to the SGC's computers. (Forsaken)

Shibo:

Captain of the Tritan (Space Race)

He was one of the racers in the 59th Loop of Kon Garat. His ship got disabled during the first phase, when it failed to defend adequately against the drones firing on it. He had to drop out of the race. (Space Race)

Taupen:

A parts supplier for space ships, who sold Warrick a reconditioned long-range scanner unit when Warrick's credit was too overdrawn to get him a new one. (Space Race)

Del Tynan:

Eamon's supervisor at Tech Con Group. He had been passed over for advancement in the company three times. He was a racist who believed that the Serrakin were steadily undermining " pure-blood" humans, and who intended to dominate the planet just as the Goa'uld had done long ago. He was convinced that he had been passed over for promotion because he was human, and it made him angry enough to want to do something about it. He planned to sabotage the Loop of Kon Garat to ensure that a full human won it, and had schematics of every ship in the race to make it easier, so he could sabotage each one differently. He also outfitted " his" pilot's ship (Muirios) with experimental Tech Con boosters that no private sector pilot should have been able to lay hands on. Tynan definitely sabotaged the Seberus himself, and possibly all the others as well, rather than sending a flunky to do it. When Warrick and Sam managed to repair the Seberus and make up most of their lost ground, Tynan resorted to blackmail he called them and told them that he had Eamon and Teal'c as hostages (which he did), and demanded that they drop out of the race. As it turns out, he was passed over for advancement because he had been under investigation for corruption for more than a year. (Space Race)

Technology

Ships capable of interstellar flight. (Forsaken)

Equipped with sonic defenses, clearly meant for use on planets. It emits a deafening noise in a bandwidth that affects the alien half of the culture more strongly than the human half (although humans are also definitely affected). (Forsaken)

Engines far more advanced than anything anyone on Earth could build. They use liquid nitrogen to fuel an ion propulsion system. (Forsaken)

Photographic technology very similar to ours. (Forsaken)

Lots of air traffic, both small craft and things that look like airborne trains. (Space Race)

Television or some other audio/visual broadcast technology huge floating screens that carry it (which make no sense, since one of the ones that's visible appears to be pointing at empty space over water a second appears to be between two buildings in the nearby city, which makes more sense.). Commercials are run during the regular programming, at least during news/sports broadcasts, as the announcer makes pitches for products and companies. (Space Race)

Power sources to rival naquadah generators -- but too expensive for the average pilot to get hold of. (Space Race)
