- "Kheb is an untouched wilderness with great mountains and a single temple in a valley distant from the Stargate."
Kheb is one of the many planets in the Milky Way to hold a Stargate, and was where Oma Desala had established a retreat to teach others the ways of ascension. Long ago, Jaffa who could no longer take a prim'ta discovered Kheb. Believing that it held instructions on how to enter the afterlife, they informed a limited number of their elders. Unfortunately, the Goa'uld learned of the planet and sent a team there to investigate, which was subsequently destroyed.
It was also rumored that the Goa'uld Isis and Osiris took refuge on this world after being betrayed by their brother Setesh. Kheb was declared off limits and its Stargate address taken off official lists; however, its address was still passed down in Jaffa legend. Amaunet later took Shifu to Kheb to hide him from the System Lords. While searching for him SG-1 learned of the planet's location. While exploring Kheb, Dr. Daniel Jackson made contact with the Ancient Oma Desala, thus becoming known to the Ancient. It was Oma Desala who set Daniel Jackson on the road to ascension. (SG1: "Maternal Instinct")
- It was at Kheb where Anubis ascended after tricking Oma Desala to help him. After the Others discovered this, they sent Anubis back to the mortal plane of existence, thus making him half-ascended. (SG1: "Threads")
