see more lost tribes of Asgard scattered about the universe in "Stargate Universe"?

I hope so. But I would be more happy, if Asgard v2.0 get the Asgard Core and they save Thor and his buddies. Maybe they can download them to new bodies. ;)

Maybe they could show us their drones too, what will be used in the Stargate : Worlds game. :cool:

I wouldn't let them ANYWHERE near the core! Who knows what they'd make from it! I mean like when Merrick created the Replicators who knows what kind of monster they'd make to rid themselves of Earth.

I was thinking...

What if other Asgard out in the cosmos who were lost like the group in SGA, but they are a bit farther in their research? In other words, what if there is a group out there that is somewhat recognizable as Asgard, but they have already taken some new steps with their DNA and began alterations, however that has created a new series of problems? So they end up having to take more genetic material in order to sustain themselves.

Just a thought...

I don't think so

SGU needs to avoid using any known races from Atlantis or SG-1 as a main race, either bad or good. Especially right at the beginning, when it'll be the most important time for SGU to make itself different than Atlantis or SG-1. If they start reusing characters and races from previous series as main characters/plot devices then everyone will be screaming that the writers can't come up with any original ideas.

So please...no former races that we've seen a thousand times before or characters who were leads on SG-1 or Atlantis moving to SGU. I like Rodney and Jackson just fine on Atlantis and SG-1...if they move known characters/races to SGU and reuse races like the Replicators, Wraith, or Asgard, and reuse characters who have already been lead characters on one series...then what's the point of making a new series?

The only way I could see a lead character/race appearing in SGU, is if its a case like Rodney, where he was only in a few episodes of SG-1 so he didn't seem overused. Or maybe a case like ST:TNG/DS9 - where they come up with a believable excuse for having a character come over (O'brien wanted the change because he felt needed on DS9, even accepting being demoted in rank). I hope they don't just put a favorite lead character on SGU just to say "hey look, its so and so from SG-1."

I could be wrong about this, but if I were the writers, that's the angle I would take. I would want to differentiate the series from SG-1 or Atlantis before introducing known characters or races as primary plot devices.

For all we know the Asgard in our local group are the lost tribe, there could be billions of worlds filled with trillions of asgard on each. Some may even have genetails still ;)

Point is we dont know enough about the form or distribution of life in the universe to guess

If they ran into Asgard that were equally or more advanced than the Asgard High Council, then they could simply ask them to give them a ride home to the Milky Way.

as much as i did like the episode, i think it would have made things alot more interesting if they would have introduced these asgard in there original form before they started cloning.

Then they'd just look like people. And if they were similar to people a lot of the plot points would have been lost--like Daniel's outrage that they experimented on humans to perfect their cloning.

I agree that they shouldn't use any former races at the beginning. They need to create a unique image for themselves; like you said.

But when they do use old races from SGA and SG1, I'd like to see Asgard as antagonists. They aren't necessarily evil, but their intentions are clearly immoral; like we saw in the last episode of SGA. I think the mistake TPTB made with the Ori was they made the story to black and white. SGC = good and Ori/Alterens = evil. With the Asgard there might be a little more grey area. We sympathize with them because they are trying to survive, but at the same time they try to survive at the expense of human life which creates the conflict. I don't think the rest of the SGA season is time enough to fully take advantage of these interesting characters properly.

What about the Furlings?

They are a known race that has been talked about, but no one has met yet.

Could they be out there somewhere along the Destiny's path?

Its more than likely that there are other groups of Asgard out there, loads of people thought there would be when there planet went pop in Unending, however as mentioned it's gonna be bad to use them from the get go as SGU is meant to be new.
There is the chance for characters from SG1 to be there, Cadet Hailey has been mentioned by myself and a few others, or at least people from that kinda level.

As for the Asgard in Lost Tribe and the Asgard Core, there not the Asgard we know, there not our allies and its fair to say that theres no reason to give them access to the core, however if they did learn of us having the core then theres at least a 2 parter in itself, perhaps this could make an SG1/SGA crossover film as you could bring the LT Asgard, Jack, the Jack clone and SGA all together in one, I'm sure loads of people will shoot the idea down but I think it could make for an actual 2 hour movie instead of 2 hours(inc ad's) in TV show time..
