Orban is a planet in the Milky Way galaxy, which held a stargate. The planet is the homeworld of the Orbanians, an Aztec civilization transplanted from Earth via crystal skull millennia ago. Orban is a proof of that settlement and civilization's attempt to rejuvenate their lifestyle, which can be seen in the structures that abound in riches Aztec history. Technology has become a triumph. Orbanians created their nanite technology in 1950.
It is Dr. Daniel Jackson's theory that the Teotihuacan civilization was destroyed by the Goa'uld. Orban might be one home of very few settlements of Aztecs which have survived Goa'uld oppression, if not the last. (SG1: "Learning Curve")
Behind the scenesEdit
- Stargate SG-1: The DVD Collection issue 8 identifies the missing glyph for this planet as the point of origin for Abydos. However, this could not be possible due to the fact that the point of origin appears only on that gate. To further compound the issue, issue 10 had a misprint which gave the address of the planet as being the same as that for Memphis.
