** {{Invoked|Trope}} -- the Arn, a species adept at genetic modification, purposefully altered themselves so that they cannot be infested by a [[PuppeteerParasite Yeerk]] without rupturing a blood vessel and dying. They assumed this would make the Yeerks leave them alone; instead the Yeerks made the Arn slaves and used them for target practice. By the main events of the series [[LastOfHisKind only one is left]]. They also can't infest a species called the Hawjabrans because their brains are spread in bits throughout their bodies instead of being centralized.

* The SGC's stargate dialing system in ''Series/StargateSG1''. They did not find the original Egypt Stargate's Dial Home Device,[[note]]"[=DHD=]" for short; a more streamlined usable operating interface than the integrated manual dial in the Gate itself, as well as a power source for the gate[[/note]] so the US Air Force kludged together their own system that works on the gate's integrated manual dial. The SGC's gate dialing system has a very incomplete set of error code report interpretations, and is far slower to dial out than the "touch-tone" dialing that [=DHD=]s provide, and requires a rigged up system to power the gate from the local electrical grid. However, this kludged system made the SGC's gate the only operable gate left in the galaxy after the Goa'uld System Lord Ba'al infected a vast number of [=DHD=]s in the galaxy with a virus that corrupted their dial-out protocols and made them gate to random incorect addresses. It spread through a "correlative update protocol" that helps the Stargate network compensate for stellar drift, and since the SGC's gate ''has'' no such DHD...
