Planets/Systems and Designations and Addresses

Recommended Posts

Here’s a list, compiled by galaxies, including planet name, address and sgc designation where these are known: https://stargate.fandom.com/wiki/Stargate_Network

These are from the shows, books, the unfinished computer mmorpg, and the old tabletop rpg. I don’t think anyone has added the ones in this game yet.

Not really. They started with naming them P3x-xxx most of the time, then around season 4 they started using season number as the second number. The designations in Atlantis mostly start with M.

There were some fanon explanations that P stands for planet, M for moon, K for kuiper object, but that doesn’t exactly hold if you check them closely. However, if you are looking for a formula to come up with new places, it’s a good way.

I would use something like: Letter to denote where the gate is: Planet, Moon, Kuiper object, Orbital

Number to specify which orbit of it’s star it is on.

Letter to denote the status of place: uneXplored, Goauld base, Civilized

And a several numbers to denote ”something”. (Maybe galactic grid)

So P3X-345 is a third planet  of it’s star and currently unexplored. 345 ”something”.

its, hick.  The initial does work for Milky Way.  All of the designations afterward were computer-generated blind so there is no orbit.  The numerical initial does not indicate season.  Can’t believe others liked your bullshit.  The same suffix and literal final can share a prefix so the two designations that differ in the numerical initial can’t be different orbits of the same star as stargates can’t resolve that closely.

The first designations only had five digits.  There’re stated only 1000s of stargates rather than millions.  The literal X was added I think as a filler for Abydos list addresses whereas the other literals for other sources, kind of like how initials denote textual criticism sources.  The numerical initial refers to the chapter or column of the source.  The suffix is randomly distributed, other than vanities like triples and 1492.
