A Goa'uld cargo ship. Also known as a "scout ship," the mid-sized vessels typically carry four escape pods, a set of transport rings, and are unarmed. Some models are equipped with a stealth device, allowing the ship to become invisible. The Tel'tak also has the ability to self-destruct.
The ship is divided into two major sections -- the flight deck, onto which the main entrance opens, and the cargo area. They are separated by a bulkhead, which is removable to allow for more space during flight.
The vessel is also equipped with a bathroom.
