Ritual of Life

From The Stargate Omnipedia


A Nox practice of healing and / or resurrection, which the species is able to accomplish when working together as a group. It is effective on both Nox and members of other species, and it a part of their culture in keeping with their value of pacifism.

In the ritual an injured or deceased individual is placed amongst a multitude of flowering plant life. A group of Nox will cross their arms and, using various gestures, disappear to begin the healing process of the injured. During this time there is a brief period where they become vulnerable, and any other actions that take place around them are not perceived by the working healers.

Within a few moments later the injured individual is restored to full health, and the Nox reappear.


The Nox - SG-1 awakens after being dead, learning they have been saved by the Nox' Ritual of Life.
