Address
Address.jpg
Any combination of at least seven glyphs required to generate a destination through which one may travel through the Stargate to another world. The first six glyphs pinpoint a three-dimensional location in space. The seventh represents a point of origin. An eighth, and extremely rare, glyph denotes a different galaxy, akin to dialing a different area code.

Addresses are not random. One could stand at a D.H.D. for considerable periods of time, entering thousands of various combinations and never lock into a destination. It is believed there are a probable 63 billion combinations (ten Stargates for every person on Earth). This means an equal number of Stargates could potentially exist in the galaxy.

There are nine chevrons for the Stargate to engage glyphs. The purpose of the ninth chevron is presently unknown.
