Locations Modifica

Main Throne room Modifica

Throne room-0

This room is apparently close to the top of the ship. This can be deduced from the fact that when the armor at the top retracts it allows natural light to enter the throne room. If one enters the room through the Transportation rings there will be a throne visible at the other side of the room and the ring platform is nearly encircled by the arms of a statue. 

Dungeon Modifica

The only part that is shown in the movie is a deep pit, in which prisoners are forced to stand in chest high dirty water with the only way in or out being a grate at the top.

Death Gliders Bay Modifica

Glider bay

There is a small Death Glider bay at the 'front' of the ship which can hold at least two Udajeet style Death Gliders.

Sarcophagus room Modifica


The Sarcophagus room is a room where aSarcophagus is built into the floor. Unlike with other Goa'uld ships the side at the head of this Sarcophagus also contains the ship's control console normally found in a Pel'tak.

Bathroom Modifica

A room with a large bathtub in the center, found off to the side of the main 

Bedroom Modifica

Bed room

A room connected to the bath room with a large bed at the center and a long table to the side for holding items.

Landing Clamps Modifica

When the Cheops Class lands the lower parts of the ship clamp on to the pyramid underneath. The purpose for this is unknown.

History Modifica

Part of Dr. Daniel Jackson's academically rejected theories about ancient Egypt was that the pyramids were landing sites for alien spaceships, which turned out to be Goa'uld (or specifically Ra's) Pyramid ships. In 1995, Colonel Jack O'Neill and Daniel destroyed Ra's Cheops class warship, along with Ra, using aNaquadah-enhanced Nuclear warhead, which Ra had been planning to send back to Earth through theStargate. Ra seems to have used the ship almost exclusively, using it even during his time on Earth. Heru'ur also had similar ships which were used to invade Cimmeria and land on Abydos.
