Asgard

 

Culture

History

They were once part of a great alliance of four ancient races.

Long ago, Asgard scientists extracted parts of the Ancients' library of knowledge and began studying it, gaining a good deal of information. But despite studying it for as long as Thor can remember (at least a thousand years), they'd barely scratched the surface. (New Order)

Appeared to humans as the Norse gods, and brought a group of humans to a safe world, Cimmeria, to allow them to evolve without interference from the Goa'uld, under Thor's protection. When Daniel and Sam solved the riddle proving they were advanced enough to know the truth, Thor appeared to them from his ship, the Biliskner, in his true form: a Roswell Gray. He said he was the Supreme Commander of the Asgard Fleet. (Thor's Chariot)

A race of effective immortals, with everyone's consciousness being repeatedly placed into younger versions of themselves as their old bodies wear out. (Revelations)

30,000 years ago, a ship was launched from the Asgard homeworld, its crew in suspended animation. The ship was lost, and sometime in 2001, the Asgard discovered it floating in the Tau'ri/Goa'uld galaxy, with one crewmember still perfectly preserved. (Revelations)

The Asgard speak many languages, and have been studying humans very closely for a long time. (The Fifth Race)

All Asgard know about Jack: he's legendary among them. His ability to contain the knowledge of the Ancients (Fifth Race) marked him as a step forward along the human evolutionary path. To safeguard him, the Asgard placed a marker in his DNA to prevent genetic manipulation. They had hoped he was a link between human and Asgard that could help solve the problem of the Asgards's having over-cloned themselves, but he wasn't. (Fragile Balance)

The Asgard have been harried across their galaxy by the Replicators over the years (see " war with the Replicators" ). In escaping from Hala in what was supposed to have been the final battle with the Replicators, the Asgard had carried many minds in the computers of their ships. When they found Orilla, they transferred those minds to cloned bodies to begin building their colony -- Orilla was going to be the base from which they rebuilt their empire. (New Order)

Worlds

Hala

The homeworld, and the first planet settled by the Asgard. (Unnatural Selection)

(nb: no indication if Thor means this is where they evolved, or just that this was their first colony world, but he does refer to Hala as the Asgard homeworld.)

This was the planet where the Asgard used Reese to set a trap for the Replicators, and with SG-1's help set up a time-dilation bubble around the planet. (Unnatural Selection)

Hala was destroyed after the Asgard deliberately increased its sun's gravitational field and collapsed it into a black hole in hopes of finally destroying the Replicators they'd trapped on the planet two years earlier. (New Order)

Orilla

The planet where the Asgard were trying to rebuild their civilization, after being battered terribly during the Replicator war. (New Order)

It's rich in neutronium, a key element in Asgard technology. (New Order)

It was nearly overrun by Replicators, until Jack (with an Ancient database in his brain) developed a weapon that would destroy Replicators. (New Order)

Othala:

Located in the galaxy of Ida. (The Fifth Race)

Government

Ruled by a High Council.

The council meets in a huge chamber, large enough to cause multiple echoes. (Red Sky)

At least four Asgard sit on the council.  There are enough seats for seven, so possibly only a quorum is necessary to make " minor" decisions. (Red Sky, Failsafe)

At least some councilors (possibly higher-ranking ones?) wear jewelry -- pendants that are possibly badges of office. (Red Sky)

The council spokesperson (possibly highest-ranking) -- so far, always Freyr -- sits in a chair bathed in purple light. (Red Sky, Failsafe)

The High Council sent Thor as a representative (or possibly Thor just cited them to beef up his statement, since he's the Asgard most likely to be dealing with the SGC at any given time) to a meeting consisting of Hammond, Major Davis, Kinsey, Col. Chekhov, and the ambassadors-to-the-US of France, the United Kingdom, and China. He informed the ambassadors that while the Asgard would deal with whoever was in charge of the stargate, it was " preferred" that it remain under Hammond's control. (Disclosure)

Protected Planets Treaty

The Protected Planets Treaty is a treaty with the Goa'uld: the Asgard agree to give the Goa'uld certain latitude in return for the Goa'ulds's agreement not to invade/attack any worlds under Asgard protection listed in the treaty. But the Asgard are largely bluffing about enforcing it -- they're caught up in a war against a far more powerful enemy in their own galaxy, and much though they'd like to protect people in our galaxy from the Goa'uld, they can't devote much in the way of resources to do so. (Fair Game)

Eventually it came out that the great enemy Thor was referring to was the Replicators. (Nemesis)

Worlds under Asgard protection:

Cimmeria:

The High Council of Asgard designated Cimmeria a safe world for developing sentient species by unanimous decree, era 40.73.29. (Thor's Hammer)

Thor said it had been a " ten-span" since he created Cimmeria -- possibly the equivalent of a thousand years. (Thor's Chariot)

Earth:

Included in the Protected Planets Treaty to keep us from being wiped out by Goa'uld invasion, although the protection doesn't extend to anyone traveling offworld. (Fair Game)

The Asgard monitor all hyperspace activity near Earth, and are capable of tracking ships through hyperspace. (Prometheus)

PX3-595:

An Asgard-protected planet. The natives, known as Tiernods, are primitive, and hide from predators in caves, using an Asgard device to vanish. (Shades of Grey)

(nb: The Tiernods never appeared on screen, but, bizarrely, appear on the DVD case that includes Shades of Grey.)

K'tau:

(Specifically named as a part of the Protected Planets Treaty)

The Asgard " contact" is Freyr, whom the natives worship as the god of sun and rain. (Red Sky)

Adara:

No apparent life on the planet, given the unlivable conditions (atmosphere of 80% carbon dioxide, and an average surface temperature above 400 degrees Fahrenheit). The Asgard chose this planet to house Heimdall's vital research lab. (Revelations)

War with the Replicators

The Replicators are the enemy that is more dangerous than the Goa'uld. They were discovered on an isolated planet and brought aboard an Asgard ship for study. They infested the ship, feeding off the metals. They used the metals/alloys to replicate, increasing their numbers incredibly fast and becoming a plague on the galaxy. They have an extremely high learning ability, and are capable of functioning both independently and as a group with a single purpose. (Nemesis)

At some point during the war with the Replicators, the Asgard tried to develop a weapon that would disrupt cellular/block communication, effectively killing the critters. The attempt failed. (New Order)

When the SGC finds the original creator of the Replicators, Reese, and tries to get word to the Asgard, the Asgard don't reply -- leading the SGC to think that they had possibly finally been overrun by the Replicators. (The Menace)

The war with the Replicators finally reached a critical state, occupying the Asgard to the point where they couldn't respond to SGC requests for contact (Menace, Meridian). They also had almost no ships to spare to handle situations in Earth's galaxy  -- Thor was dispatched in the only available ship to handle a Goa'uld problem, and when his ship was destroyed in the battle, it left the Asgard with none to spare. Freyr came directly to Earth when he could to ask for Reese, in hopes that the Asgard could figure out a way to defeat the Replicators. (Revelations)

It seems to have helped: after they took possession of her, they finally managed to gain the upper hand in the war, to the point where they could spare three ships to help SG-1 rescue Heimdall (just in time to keep Anubis from capturing or destroying the cargo ship they were escaping on). (Revelations)

When the Asgard High Council realized the war against the Replicators was unwinnable, they came up with another plan. They used the android Reese, the original creator of the Replicators, to bait a trap. She was too badly damaged to repair, but her base programming retained a single core command: " come forth" . (Unnatural Selection)

They triggered it in her neural network, amplified it, and broadcast it through subspace throughout the known universe to call all the Replicators to the Asgard homeworld. (Unnatural Selection)

The trap itself was a time-dilation device, generating a field that extended 0.16 lightyears (approx. 940 billion miles). Within the " bubble" , time was supposed to have been slowed by a factor of 10 to the fourth power (e.g., one year within the bubble would be 10,000 years outside it). (Unnatural Selection)

It was constructed in an ancient building on Hala, encased in a solid neutronium shell, and set with a time delay long enough to evacuate the entire civilization. (Unnatural Selection)

Not all the Asgard escaped -- there was a great battle. (Unnatural Selection)

Replicators got to the device before it activated. (Unnatural Selection)

The evacuation fleet retreated to the void between the Asgard galaxy and our own to await word on whether SG-1 would help them activate the device. (Unnatural Selection)

When they realized their trap had failed, they called in SG-1, in the X-303, to fix it. Thor and the Asgard fleet held back to keep from triggering a Replicator attack, and then after the trap had been triggered properly, they searched to make sure no Replicator vessels escaped. (Unnatural Selection)

Less than two years after SG-1 helped trap the Replicators on Hala, the Asgard realized the Replicators would soon break out of the time-dilation bubble, and collapsed Hala's sun by artificially increasing its gravitational field, turning it into a black hole. (New Order)

The time/space distortions messed up their long-distance communications ability, so they never got any of Earth's requests for help. (New Order)

The plan didn't work: in the end, a mass of Replicators banded together and escaped in the form of a (very cool) ship, possibly using the time dilation device to counter the gravitational forces of the black hole somehow. (New Order)

When an escaping Replicator ship found out about the new Asgard homeworld, Orilla (from sending individual Replicators to poke around on the Daniel Jackson), and headed that way, Thor got word to the others who set up a trap above the planet, at the point where the Replicator ship was assumed to drop out of hyperspace. The trap worked, and the ship was destroyed, but many replicator bits fell to the planet's surface and began uniting and replicating, infesting the city's systems almost immediately. (New Order)

Among the systems infested and ruined were those used to store Asgard minds, leaving the Asgard trapped: if they didn't defeat the Replicators on Orilla, their civilization would die, because there was no way to store/transfer minds from body to body. (New Order)

Thor had beamed the stasis-bound Jack (with an Ancient database in his brain) onto the Daniel Jackson, and merged his mind with the ship's computer in hopes of discovering a weapon that would stop the Replicators permanently. It worked. Jack developed a weapon that emits a beam that disrupts communications between individual cells, rendering them inert. Replicators collapse into a pile of metallic dust/shavings when the beam hits them. Jack created a hand-held version  -- Thor modified it to be a ship's weapon, with a very broad beam. (New Order)

Thor used the new weapon on Orilla, to kill all the Replicators on the planet and free the colony. One humanoid Replicator (Fifth) and hundreds of smaller Replicators, many of them formed into a single giant ship form, escaped, but Orilla was saved and the Asgard were left with an effective means of defense. (New Order)

Biology

History

30,000 years ago, the Asgard were taller and closer to human-looking, with a less pronounced skull and more solid bodies/musculature. (Revelations)

Through genetic manipulation of themselves as a race, the Asgard have painted themselves into a corner: eventually, they reached a point where the manipulation was irreversible. (Revelations)

For a thousand years, they've been incapable of sexual reproduction. (Revelations)

Instead, they reproduce exclusively through a process of enhanced cellular mitosis: cloning. When one body begins to wear out, a clone takes its place. Over the generations, the lack of genetic diversity has led to deterioration in the physical makeup. (Revelations)

They introduced controlled mutation to keep from complete genetic breakdown, but have reached the limits of their technological capabilities. (Revelations)

Current

All existing Asgards are original minds housed in cloned bodies. (Revelations)

They can be knocked out by a zat blast. (Fragile Balance)

Technology

Anti-gravity

Thor's recovery/stasis pod was equipped with anti-grav, making it very easy to move. (Nemesis)

Cloaking device

Very sophisticated, and the reason that no one on Earth has ever discovered Asgard ships in orbit. (Fair Game)

top | technology

Cloning

Highly sophisticated cloning on a massive scale: the entire population. (Revelations)

The cloning process is designed to grow a clone to maturity in just three months. (Covenant)

The body is an empty shell until an existing consciousness is put into it. (Covenant)

top | technology

Consciousness-transference

As part of the cloning process, the Asgard transfer their consciousness from one body to its clone, apparently with no mishaps.

Disruptor satellite

Modified from the ship-based version of the disruptor that Thor created, which was in turn modified from the original hand-held version of the disruptor that Jack had created with the help of the Ancient knowledge in his mind. (New Order, Gemini)

top | technology

Holographic communicators

Allow face-to-face contact that function over incredible distance, including between galaxies. (Nemesis, Red Sky)

Quality of the signal possibly dependent on distance? Usually the effect is clearly holographic -- the image is a bit washed out, as well as being slightly flickery -- but when Jack and Sam use the tech to communicate between Heimdall's research base and people on Osiris's mothership in orbit, the image is perfectly clear except for an occasional rolling flicker and appears solid, as though the person is actually there. (Revelations)

Invisibility

Device that turns people invisible when attached (and presumably turned on, although no obvious mechanism to do so). Once the device is removed (even held in hand), they're visible again. (Shades of Grey)

Neutronium

Not technology itself, but a key element in Asgard tech. (New Order)

Replicator-killer

(better name coming if and when canon supplies one)

Invented by Jack, while he had an Ancient database in his brain. (New Order)

It emits a beam that disrupts communications between individual cells, rendering them inert. Replicators collapse into a pile of metallic dust/shavings when the beam hits them. Jack created a hand-held version  -- Thor modified it to be a ship's weapon, with a very broad beam. (New Order)

Ships

General info

Can avoid detection by satellites and telescopes, using a cloaking device. (Fair Game)

Travel incredibly much faster than light, through hyperspace -- can travel from one end of the galaxy to another " in no time" . (Small Victories)

Have to travel slower when towing a Terran ship such as the X-303 -- instead of minutes to travel from Earth to the Asgard home galaxy, it took hours. (Unnatural Selection)

All Asgard ships are equipped with internal dampening fields that activate in the event of an explosion. (Nemesis)

These don't protect against an external explosion: there are shields surrounding the ship, but a weapon already inside the force field and on the outside of the ship can do damage. (Nemesis)

Scanners/sensors:

The first thing that Replicators do after boarding an Asgard ship is disable the sensors that can detect them. (Nemesis)

As of eighth season, Asgard scanners are still incapable of detecting Replicators. (New Order)

nb: this seems to contradict the information given in Nemesis.

Shields and weapons:

Can't function in hyperspace. (New Order)

top | ships

The Biliskner

Thor's ship. (Fair Game)

Powered by four neutrino ion generators. It uses a molecular transportation device which was disabled in one direction to prevent escape, and was destroyed on entering Earth's atmosphere. (Nemesis)

The Biliskner (and presumably other Asgard ships) was incapable of surviving an uncontrolled entry into an atmosphere -- the heat of the friction would cause the ship to burn up. (Nemesis)

Airlocks:

Controlled by a three-button panel. The top button opens the inner door, the middle button (de)pressurizes the airlock, and the bottom button opens the outer door. (Nemesis)

It was destroyed over Earth, to stop the Replicators from landing on the planet. (Nemesis)

The Daniel Jackson

Thor's ship. (New Order)

Roughly the size of a Goa'uld mothership, according to the sensors aboard the Prometheus. (New Order)

The O'Neill

Thor's ship. (Small Victories)

The first ship designed solely to fight the Replicators. (Small Victories)

It had a hull of carbon, trinium, and naquadah, and was the most advanced technological creation of the Asgard. (Small Victories)

Construction on it was never completed. (Small Victories)

Sam blew it up in hyperspace (by remote), to take out three Replicator ships. (Small Victories)

Aegir

Served aboard (presumably commander of, but never confirmed) the Valhalla, one of the Asgard ships that gathered near the point where the Replicator ship was assumed to drop out of hyperspace, hoping to destroy it before it could reach Orilla. (New Order)

His ship located a human-form Replicator floating in space, apparently inactive, after the Replicator ship's destruction he told Thor about it. (New Order)

Freyr

Apparent head of the Asgard High Council -- at the council, he wears a jewel around his neck, is in a chair bathed in purple light, and does most of the talking. He knows who Jack is, but isn't as personally invested in him as Thor is. He's the personal protector of K'tau. (Red Sky)

Finally made a trip to Earth to ask for the SGC's help, after Thor was presumed dead after a Goa'uld attack on his vessel in a protected system. The battle left an Asgard scientist, Heimdall, stranded in a research facility on the planet, and Freyr needed SG-1 to go get him out. The Asgard had no ships available to do it themselves, because of the war with the Replicators. Thanks to the information they got from Reese after the SGC handed her over, the Asgard were in good enough shape that Freyr in turn could dash off to the rescue of SG-1, Heimdall, and Thor, all in danger of capture or destruction by Anubis. (Revelations)

top | known Asgard

Heimdall

Scientist working alone in the Adara system for six months in 2001, on the Asgards's most important project. Doesn't appear to have met any humans before, and was pleased to see SG-1 -- he'd heard of them and their " exploits on behalf of the Asgard" . He was working on the genetic history of the Asgard, and both he and Thor were very concerned that his research not fall into Goa'uld hands: the Asgard need the knowledge to ensure the existence of their race. (Revelations)

He was using the perfectly preserved body of an Asgard from 30,000 years ago, found on a ship that was drifting in space, to try to find ways to reverse the genetic manipulation that had locked the Asgard onto a dying path -- their inability to sexually reproduce and lack of genetic diversity are going to kill them off as a race eventually if nothing is done. (Revelations)

He was willing to die (and to watch SG-1 die) to keep the research from falling into Goa'uld hands. (Revelations)

top | known Asgard

Loki

God of mischief in human mythology. The Asgard Loki is a renegade. He was a geneticist with the Asgard ruling council, but was stripped of his stature [sic] after he was caught performing unsanctioned experiments on humans. He was attempting to advance the Asgard cloning technology, using the human physical makeup (which is similar to the Asgards' original form) as a template -- he had hoped to create a clone that could contain an Asgard's intellect. He failed. (Fragile Balance)

His experiments included making clones of humans and sending the clones to take their places for a week, then recalling the clones and returning the humans, mostly none the wiser (they seem to have remembered at least the early stages of their abduction and experimentation, but didn't realize they'd been cloned and replaced for a week). The clones were designed to fail after about a week, dying soon after as a result of massive cellular degeneration and total system shutdown as a result. (Fragile Balance)

He risked coming back to Earth after 19 years -- slipping away in the confusion and mass motion of the Asgard fight with the Replicators and then relocation of their home space when the Replicators were massed on the homeworld -- because he believed that Jack was the key to his cloning hopes. Jack's ability to be a repository for the Ancients's database in Fifth Race was something that no human a generation ago could have done, marking Jack as a significant step forward on the evolutionary ladder. He was legendary among the Asgard as a result, and Loki couldn't resist finding out if this was the break he'd been waiting for. He was truly trying to save his people, but using highly unethical methods to do so. (Fragile Balance)

He was really worried/scared when Jack and SG-1 called for Thor to help them sort everything out. (Fragile Balance)

top | known Asgard

Thor

Age: at least a thousand years old. The Asgard are all clones of themselves, and for a thousand years, each time a body has begun to wear out, the consciousness has been transferred into a younger version of it. (Revelations)

Thrudvang is Thor's home in the stars. (Thor's Hammer)

He has the people of Cimmeria under his personal protection (Thor's Hammer, Thor's Chariot)

Seems to have quite the soft spot for Earth, as well -- or at least for Jack O'Neill. (multiple eps)

Repeatedly taps Jack, specifically, for important missions. (Shades of Grey, Nemesis)

Named his car -- er, brand-new, most-advanced-ever ship after him (The O'Neill, in Small Victories).

High Commander of the Asgard fleet. (Thor's Chariot, Disclosure)

His ship was the Biliskner. (Fair Game, Nemesis)

Under his command, the Biliskner went into battle against the Replicators, but was infested by them. They got into the computer and found information about Earth, and plotted a course for it. Thor transported the crew off and then destroyed the outbound transporters to prevent the Replicators from just beaming down to Earth, and stayed aboard in hopes of stopping them altogether before they could reach Earth. (Nemesis)

Instead, he wound up badly injured or ill (it's not clear which) from trying to fight the Replicators, and didn't dare use the medical facilities to heal himself. (Nemesis)

He created instructional recordings just in case he didn't make it. (Nemesis)

When they arrived in Earth's orbit despite his best efforts, he beamed up Jack to help destroy them if possible -- trapping him aboard. (Nemesis)

While SG-1 figured out what to do, Thor's condition worsened, until Sam was forced to seal him in his stasis pod. They took the pod with them when they gated off the ship just before it was destroyed. (Nemesis)

The other Asgard came and got Thor (still in his pod) almost immediately when they arrived on the planet. (Small Victories)

Arrived in the protected Adara system after a Goa'uld ship showed up there, and ordered it to withdraw. Osiris, in command of the ha'tak, refused, and Thor opened fire -- only to have the ha'tak's new shields hold against his attack. Osiris returned fire, with weapons that were also more advanced than the Asgard had expected, and destroyed Thor's ship, taking Thor prisoner but letting the Asgard think he was dead. (Revelations)

While Thor was imprisoned, Anubis arrived and implanted a device in Thor's brain, linking his mind with the ship's computer to download all Thor's knowledge. (Revelations)

Thor took advantage of this to use the ship's internal communications to talk to the captured Jack (and Teal'c), and to help them escape from their holding cell. (Revelations)

After he was rescued the Asgard managed to remove the device, but it was too late: Thor had lapsed into a coma. (Revelations)

After he was captured by Anubis and hooked up to Anubis's ship's computer, Thor let his consciousness take up residence in the computer. He basically took over the ship, and halted the self-destruct that Anubis started in order to destroy him, then aimed the ship for Earth. After Sam figured that out, she put his consciousness into a single small bank of crystals and removed it, to bring it to the Asgard to be downloaded into a new clone body. (Descent)

Safely in his new (identical) body, he traced the X-303 after it left Earth's orbit so he could request Jack's help against the Replicators -- which had overrun the Asgard homeworld (Hala). (Prometheus)

He enlisted SG-1's aid in the Asgard plan to trap the Replicators on Hala by means of a time-dilation device. (Unnatural Selection)

The High Council sent Thor as a representative (or possibly Thor just cited them to beef up his statement, since he's the Asgard most likely to be dealing with the SGC at any given time) to a meeting consisting of Hammond, Major Davis, Kinsey, Col. Chekhov, and the ambassadors-to-the-US of France, the United Kingdom, and China. He informed the ambassadors that while the Asgard would deal with whoever was in charge of the stargate, it was " preferred" that it remain under Hammond's control. (Disclosure)

Arrived on Loki's ship after Jack and Sam called him from there, to help sort out the mess with clone!Jack and explain why Loki had gone after Jack in the first place (his genetic code, which was a step along the human evolutionary ladder). (Fragile Balance)

He was basically indifferent (not cruel or deliberately unkind, just... indifferent) to the fate of clone!Jack, and was surprised that original!Jack wanted the clone to be saved. But he went along and fixed the genetic problem that was causing cellular degeneration, and did whatever was necessary to get past the genetic marker in Jack's DNA so the clone could age properly, leaving him as a " normal" teenage boy (with Jack's mind and memories). (Fragile Balance)

Didn't reply when the SGC sent a request that he stand by as backup in case someone from the SGC wound up with an Ancient database downloaded into his brain, based on the discovery of what appeared to be a repository of knowledge on P3X-439. (Lost City, part 1)

Named his new ship the Daniel Jackson. (New Order)

Traveled in the Daniel Jackson to observe the final destruction of Hala in the black hole of its sun (which the Asgard had collapsed deliberately, to destroy the Replicators on Hala), and spotted Sam and Teal'c's scout ship just in time to save their lives. (New Order)

Almost immediately, Thor spotted a new kind of Replicator ship, escaping from the event horizon. It attacked the Daniel Jackson with a projectile weapon made up of Replicators, which started skittering around the ship. Sam and Teal'c went to fight them off --Teal'c got as many as he could find, but Sam was beamed out to the Replicator ship. (New Order)

When Thor realized that the Replicator ship (with Sam aboard) was heading for the new Asgard homeworld of Orilla, he chose the only option left to him -- the ship's self-destruct, which should take out both the Daniel Jackson and the Replicator ship, if he could get close enough. (New Order)

Replicators that had hid on board slowed the Daniel Jackson down, making the self-destruct useless as an offensive weapon. (New Order)

With the option of destroying the Replicators himself gone, he managed to get through to Orilla, warning them what was going on and giving them the speed and direction of the Replicator ship, so they could set up an ambush. (New Order)

The ambush was only half-successful the ship was destroyed, but countless blocks rained down on Orilla and began replicating, threatening the last of Asgard civilization. Thor headed his ship for Earth, hoping that the Ancient knowledge in Jack's head would provide a way to defeat the Replicators for good. He beamed up first Daniel, then Jack, putting Jack in a stasis pod and transferring his consciousness to the ship's computers. (New Order)

The gamble worked: Jack created a weapon to use against the Replicators before his body began to fail to the point that Thor was forced to revive him completely, stripping out all Ancient knowledge. (New Order)

Aegir called with the news that a humanoid Replicator had been found floating in space, apparently inactive. Thor beamed the body into the stasis pod Jack had been in, hoping it was still active enough to be hooked into the Replicator communications network so he could intercept information, and see what any of the Replicators see. When the communications came up on screen, Thor set it to find human forms, hoping to find the humanoid Replicator that had taken control on the planet. (New Order)

Instead, they found Sam, trapped in a Replicator structure on the surface some distance from the colony. (New Order)

Just as they realized it was Sam on the planet, the " inactive" humanoid Replicator woke up, shutting down the communications flow. Thor's attempt to beam it out to space failed the Replicator breached the internal barrier and interfaced with some of the Daniel Jackson's systems, then got out of the stasis pod. (New Order)

When P-90s didn't stop it, Jack went for the weapon he'd designed, using it to completely destroy the Replicator (and nothing else -- this was a very targeted weapon). It interrupted all communication between individual cells, rendering each one inert. (New Order)

Thor made a modified, huge version of the hand-held weapon, one that could be fired from his ship and send a beam that would radiate out over the entire planet. He took out all the Replicators except those that escaped with Fifth. (New Order)

When Jack called in a marker, Thor went to Earth to help handle the problem of Alec Colson trying to go public with information that there really were aliens involved in Earth's affairs. (Covenant)

Thor beamed out the Asgard clone and everything that had to do with it (" It's gone. Just disappeared right out of the lab. The alien! computers, everything." ), so Colson couldn't use it again. (Covenant)

After that, he stood by while Sam went for an interview with Julia Donovan on " Inside Access" , waiting for his cue to make a hologram of himself appear next to her. When Julia, truly amazed at the apparent reality of him, mentioned something about it, Thor said that although he looked real, he was really just part of advanced holographic technology. Sam " proved" it by waving her hand through his image a couple of times. The ruse worked -- people started calming down. (Covenant)

While he was on Earth, Thor met with President Hayes. According to Jack, Thor had said that he wanted to give the president " something nice" (Jack's suggestion was a hyperdrive for the Prometheus. Thor nixed that, saying he'd need to take it to the Asgard High Council for approval.). (Covenant)

When asked by the SGC, he went to the Milky Way to help with the problem of the Replicator invasion, beaming Sam and her research aboard his ship to work with her on a solution. (Reckoning part 1)

He and Sam agreed that the only way to get the information they needed was to reactivate the cells left behind by Replicator-Sam and use them to contact -- for micro-seconds at at time -- the Replicator network. It worked, and Thor managed to discover the cipher that the Replicators were using to counteract the disruptor weapon. He modified the weapon and he and Sam tested it on one Replicator ship, successfully. The other Replicators adapted immediately, though, and began going after Thor's ship. He and Sam fled. (Reckoning part 1)

The ship was boarded anyway, either before or after it went into hyperspace, and Replicators began compromising its systems. Thor beamed Sam back down into the SGC while his transporters were still working, then took the ship as far away as possible so the Replicators wouldn't be near Earth when they took over the ship completely. (Reckoning part 1)
