      I don't know. Do you have examples in canon of when a First Prime *didn't* go on a mission? I know that Apophis, for example, had a large army, but he always accompanied that army in any battle, and his First Prime was always with him.

      Why in every fiction is it the FIRST prime who's leading every single
      mission no matter how piddly it is?

      First Prime is equivalent rank to a Joint Chief of Staff in the
      American military. They're mostly occupied with running the army.

      Granted, Goa'uld FPs also sometimes have bodyguard duties to the head
      Goa'uld, but they don't go on EVERY MISSION!

        I can't THINK of any at the moment, just going by logic, and the vague
        impression of memory that there were.

          Look at it this way, The Goul'd in charge blames him for every error his forces make and then tortures him. I know I would take every chance to be out of the presence of someone who acted like that.
           
          He also likely leads every mission that is taking place in a star system where the Goul'd he is working for is currently located. Just to make sure that nothing goes wrong within his masters sight. Or if something does go wrong, he stands a good chance of being able to fix it or dying for his "God".

            Ah, I think you're mistaken. There can only ever be one active First Prime (Teal'c to Apophis) though there is an apprentice system in place, like Bra'tac who retired from that aspect. As anyone who had an important position for a long time, you'll still have the respect of others and will be on call - for council and as a reserve First Prime.

            Remember that First Primes are the only ones whose marks are gold and not just a tattoo. Of the Jaffa who appear in the ninth season, I don't remember seeing any with golden marks except for Teal'c and Bra'tac.

            Doubtlessly there's more to Jaffa hierarchy than that. Who's in command of a Ha'tak will no doubt be trusted more than the bloke guarding the rings. But that's not something I remember being talked about on screen.
