Since they and the Ancients were one race, it is safe to say their technology would be identical to what the Ancients left behind in the Milky Way galaxy. Saved by K.J.

The Ancients instilled in primitive man a healthy fear of fire, associating it with demons, to ensure humans’ freedom from Ori influence. Adria, appearing before Vala Mal Doran from the Flames of Enlightenment as an ascended being, confirmed that the Ori were indeed killed by the Sangraal, however she alone inherited all of their power.

One Ancient named Merlin, however, was aware of the threat the Ori would one day present, and designed a weapon capable of neutralizing an ascended being, killing it. [3] Cooper said the Priors have "these incredible, superhuman powers",[6] which allows them to perform deeds which they convince people are miracles,[2] attack enemies,[2] and resurrect the dead.

[4]In Season 10, the Ori sweep through the Milky Way galaxy, forcing SG-1 to start from scratch again to find technology, resources, and allies to fight against them. (SG1: "The Fourth Horseman, Part 1", "The Pegasus Project"), While the Ancients will attempt to stop the Ori from interfering in the Milky Way and possibly Pegasus, they won't stop the Ori elsewhere and will not attempt to stop their human followers. [6] As such, they do not interfere on lower planes of existence at all, not even to save their own kind from being exterminated by the Ori,[13] or to prevent all life in the Milky Way galaxy from being exterminated by Anubis. [5], Producer Brad Wright believed the Ori are still within the overriding theme of Stargate, as they are "aliens playing gods" and "false gods" and the relationship between aliens as gods and ordinary human folk. [3], Season Nine was about wiping the slate clean and resetting the story to where Stargate SG-1 was in its first season. The prior also told Tomin the truth about the child as "the will of the Ori", who would later be the Orici. Through Stargate Command and the Atlantis expedition the Tau'ri were able to make a connection between the Supergate and a Stargate in Pegasus, managing to destroy one of the Ori ships. Having had good experiences with the first season of Stargate Atlantis, the producers hence decided to revamp the series in more fronts than just adding new characters by introducing new villains and new missions.

Since the eighth season of Stargate SG-1 was intended to be the last, the producers finished it with the defeat of the Goa'uld and Replicators. The Priors have scarifications on the chin and the cheek, while the Doci also have them on their forehead. [6] If, as "The Shroud" suggested, the Ori were actually destroyed by the Merlin's Ancient weapon, the real issue for the SG-1 teams became the followers. [4], If Stargate SG-1 had gone on, the producers would have considered the search for the Ark (of Stargate: The Ark of Truth) as the overriding story for an eleventh season, similar to the Sangraal in seasons nine and ten. [7] Cooper considered Adria becoming host to a Goa'uld "the marriage of the old villains and the new villains" and compared it to the episode "Enemies", the first where both the Replicators and the Goa'uld first appeared together.
