The Alket is a Jaffa scout/attack vessel inspired by the original Goa'uld Al'kesh design and refitted with lower level Alterran technology to create a more powerful and more versatile small scale ship for use in the new Jaffa fleet.

System Lord Bra'tac was in charge of the redesign, and as such added his considerable battlefield experience with the Al'kesh and space warfare in general to the design process. Though similar in appearance, the Alket packs a much stronger punch than its predecessor.
