The Asgard (Second Human Empire: unknown) were a benevolent, extremely advanced race from the Ida galaxy that visited Earth on many occasions, giving rise to Norse mythology. Part of the Alliance of Four Great Races, they were among the most advanced races in the universe, matched only by the Ancients, the Nox, and possibly the Furlings. They assumed the role of the Ancients as protectors of the Milky Way when the latter passed from this plane of existence and in turn passed that role down to the Tau'ri, to whom they gifted all of their knowledge and latest technology. The Asgard joined the Alliance of Nations
