Sparta, designated P9A-2736 by the Tau'ri, was a planet in the Milky Way galaxy which held a Stargate. At some point in time, the Goa'uld System Lord Pelops took the planet as his own and immigrated the Spartans of Earth to Sparta. Creating a stronghold world, Pelops created a fortress near the Stargate as well as placing the capital city of the planet nearby.
Home to most of Pelops's Spartan Jaffa, Sparta housed fifty military barracks—which in turn housed one hundred Jaffa each—which were arranged in a ring around the capital city. Placed among these barracks were six hangars, each capable of housing two Al'kesh bombers, though they did not always meet their full capacity. Each military installation on Sparta was heavily guarded, having a dozen squads of one to four Jaffa patrolling their perimeters. In addition to this, similar forces guarded Pelops's research facilities which also featured blast doors equipped with electronic keyboard locks in order to keep unwanted people out. Although this was already a sizable army, even more Jaffa guarded Pelops's fortress which had squads of one to six Jaffa patrolling both the interior and exterior of the castle.
