Certainly one of Earth’s most effective allies, the traditional and benevolent Asgard were conscious of the Tau’ri for a while. They assumed the personae of Norse gods on the majority of worlds, including Cimmeria (paid by Thor’s Hammer), and K’Tau, a far more progressive world but nonetheless heavily immersed in Norse beliefs.
The Asgard were once people of the ancient alliance using the Nox, the Furlings and also the Ancients. The species was controlled by the Asgard High Council, which monitored activity on protected worlds and created decisions on actions taken against aggressors.
Physiologically, the Asgard averaged about one meter tall, with grayish skin color, small, skinny braches, large heads and black eyes — bearing an uplifting resemblance towards the Roswell Greys described in numerous UFO abduction tales. The Asgard were not capable of meiosis (sexual reproduction) for centuries. They resorted to some exclusively enhanced mitosis (cloning) existence, forcing them lower a way that eventually brought for their extinction. Before that point, some Asgard required drastic steps to guarantee the survival from the species, including kidnapping individuals from Earth to review human development.
Regardless of the Asgard’s small physical stature, their size wasn’t any comparison for their intellect. They effectively developed numerous advanced technologies that dwarf individuals from the Goa’uld, including faster-than-light travel that may launch an Asgard vessel in one universe to a different within a few minutes.
The Asgard established a Protected Planets
Agreement using the Goa’uld System Lords, keeping planets for example Cimmeria, Earth and K’Tau protected from direct invasion. However the Goa’uld Anubis’s advanced technologies (taken or adapted in the Ancients) rivaled the Asgard’s, allowing him to eventually disregard the agreement altogether and render it unofficially void.
An opportunity encounter with Colonel Jack O’Neill of Earth forced the Asgard to reexamine humans as well as their role within the universe. They’d studied people carefully, figuring out the species has great potential. However, O’Neill demonstrated for them that humans were, actually, prepared to explore a larger galactic picture, and also the Asgard then designated him their representative from mankind.
All the Asgard’s technologies and intellectual abilities forced these to a deadlock inside a fight by having an artificial species within their universe: the Replicators. The Asgard, getting exhausted all possible alternatives, greatly relied on the Tau’ri to render help to the species in trying to defeat this enemy. It had been ultimately the efforts of humans that put an finish towards the chapter from the Replicators permanently once the machines joined the Milky Method to wage war using the Goa’uld.
Through the potential for Jack O’Neill, the Asgard acknowledged they considered humanity is the fifth race. When their genetic degradation brought to some extent where their last make an effort to halt it introduced in regards to a debilitating disease, they made a decision to put this towards the test.
Before retreating for their planet, the Asgard endowed our planet vessel Journey having a library computer that contains the sum of the their understanding and technology. To avoid the remainder of their technology from falling in to the wrong hands, they detonated Orilla’s core, completely eradicating the Asgard footprint in the world — approximately it had been believed.
At least a year later a splinter number of Asgard, who’d damaged off and away to solve their genetic degradation problem using less ethical means, were found within the Pegasus Universe. They weren’t surprised once they discovered the dying of the siblings within the Othalla Universe, which appeared to simply strengthen their resolve to repair their cloning problem at all necessary.
The fate of the splinter group remains unknown.
