|Out of universe information|
Pangarans are a race of human from the planet Pangar that have been free of the Goa'uld for many generations. They were exploring their history through the ruins and found a Goa'uld queen without knowing what she was. However, they discovered that they could use her offspring to create Tretonin, a powerful healing drug.
About this time, they were contacted by Stargate Command. The Pangarans were friendly and open to the initial contact. As a result of the contact, they found out about the Goa'uld. The Tok'ra were called in, and together they discovered that the queen was Egeria. This caused some initial friction, but by the end it was resolved. The discovery of Tretonin led the way to freeing Jaffa from their symbiotes. They had little knowledge how the Stargate works. (SG1: "Cure")
