Geopolitical and Structural History

Nothing about the atmosphere or topography of the planet is known. The Stargate was stored inside a structure and SG-1 never explored outside.

After Ma'chello escaped the clutches of the Goa'uld, he set up a lab on the planet where he could work on his inventions to fight the Goa'uld (2.18 "Holiday"). In the curtained areas, he kept several pieces of advanced technology including: false Goa'uld page turning devices for Goa'uld tablets that released organisms that would poison symbiotes, a hibernation chamber that kept him alive despite an advanced age, and a double handled device that switched the consciousness of the people that held it.

When SG-1 arrived on the planet, Ma'chello came out of a curtained area to great them. Later, Captain Carter discovered his hibernation unit and conjectured it was coded to awaken him if anyone arrived. Ma'chello greeted the visitors and pretended to be an addled old man, convincing Daniel Jackson to "help him" move the double handled device.

The shock of transfer knocked Ma'chello's body unconscious and caused Daniel Jackson's to stumble. Concerned, SG-1 returned to Stargate Command with the pair, not realizing the device's function had caused Daniel's consciousness to be transferred to Ma'chello's body and vice versa.

After Daniel awoke in Ma'chello's body and convinced his friends of who he was, the rest of SG-1 returned to the planet to investigate more. Sam Carter found several notes on various devices, but they were all in a strange coded language. Teal'c and Jack O'Neill used hazmat gloves to try to handle the device that caused the change to Daniel, but the effect occurred anyway, now switching O'Neill and Teal'c's minds. However, they were able to transport the device back to Earth for further study—where Captain Carter eventually figured out a way to put everyone's minds back where they belonged.

Although Ma'chello died of old age at Stargate Command, all the contents of his lab on P3W-924/P3C-599 were brought back to Earth and transferred to Area 51 for further study (3.04 "Legacy"). SG-1 later visited PY3-948, and discovered the planet was a meeting place of the Linvris. Afterwards, Daniel Jackson showed symptoms of schizophrenia. Later he unwittingly transferred the organism to Teal'c, and heard Ma'chello's voice. Checking an inventory of everything from P3W-924/P3C-599, it was discovered Ma'chello had planted one of his false Goa'uld tablet page-turning devices from his lab as a "land mine" to infect Goa'uld.
