    There was one asgard in Failsafe that had an eye necklace, it might refer to Odin, the one-eyed god. Maybe they were beamed into space? It could be a disintegration ray.

    1: No news yet - who is to say thoe we hear about him in season 9. Maybe Thor will introduce him to O'Neill

    2: Thor possibly beamed them to a planet occupied by Her-ur or Her-ur's home world, or possibly killed them, but I think the first option might be correct.

    These are just my thoughts I could be wrong.

    That would actually be really cool to include Odin as a character. maybe as head of the asgard high council or something.

    Nice one. Keep that grey matter ticking

    Norse mythology did not come from Norway; it came from all of the Scandinavian countries, including Sweden and Denmark. Finland is not a true Nordic country. Also, Norse mythology has its true origins in Germanic mythology. The Germans were the original Norse and their tribes settled the north of Europe as well as present day Holland, Germany, Austria, parts of Switzerland, part of Belgium, and even England. Germanic religion, mythology, and culture followed the tribes. So to say Norse Mythology came from Norway is not only ethnocentric, but incorrect. The Germanics all shared in the mythology with some localized distinctions, similar to how the Greek mythology basically became the Roman mythology (e.g., Poseiden = Neptune; Zeus = Jupiter).

    1. Not sure about Odin, but I don't think there will be. Asgard don't really have parents anymore, but Thor may have had a biological father back in the day, a few hundred or thousand years ago. It's possible, but I don't think they chose their names based on the exact mythology, but chose them out of roles. Thor was a defender, so is Asgard Thor.

    2. It was a transport beam used on Cimmeria in Thor's Chariot. The Jaffa, and presumably the Pyramid, were probably beamed up to Thor's ship and who knows what happened to them. I don't think the Asgard would have killed them, but they could have removed the symbiotes and restored them to being human and dumped them off somewhere. They may have killed Heru'ur if they had caught him.

    Here's a question: do Asgard have emotions like humans? Can they feel fear?

    Well, Thor didn't seem scared to me when Anubis was going to torture him in Revelations.

    Well, maybe not scared, but he did seem surprised and not as confident as usual. It was a nice change!

    I don't know if this has been discused before, but:

    Why have the Asgard such large ships. There is always only 1 asgard piloting the ship, but it is almost as big as a Ha'tak, where you have up to 5000 jaffa (I think I heard that number somewhere)

    Asgards are so little they wanan feel important thats why they each get one ship...

    They dont pick roles. where did you hear that? That was their real names, its not like they chose to be batman or spiderman, They were the Asgard before the Norse religion started. Thor came told them he was thor, they called him thor. Same with gouald, Ra came sai he was ra, he became Ra, the sungod. pick roles? im not gonna say anymore...

    Asgard were once Humanoid, They do feel, if they didnt feel they wouldnt protect humans or help out earth, and the milkyway when their own people and galaxy are being destroyed.

    I always felt that the Asgard may have much more control of how emotion affects them. I don't see why they would have no real emotions, just a much better capacity to control them. After all they do have that massive brain power thing going for them....

    *shrug* just an idea.

    because it would extremely ackward for SG-1 to have to crawl around every where when they get beamed up to save the day. have you ever tried fighting replicators off while on your hands and knees? very very ackward

    I would imagine that their ships all have oodles of technology of all kinds on them too. I could see that requiring space.

    I'm sure at times they need room for a lot of individuals. They do look after a lot of planets and their people(s).

    I thought thor said in the episoed where his ship gets infeseted by replicators that they first get rid of the crew than shut down the sensors. But I do not know.

    The whole naming thing depends on who you ask. Some say primitive humans named their gods after the aliens who landed, while others say the aliens adopted pre-existing personas when they came down, so as not to alarm the natives too badly.

    are you kidding the asgard motherships are not nearly as big as a hatak there about 20x larger! lol, in unatural selection the asgard mothership's landing pad bas bigger than the prommie and the prommie about half the size of a hatak ( by landing pad i mean the O thing at the bottom of the vertical engines.

    Yeah, they probably DO have a crew, just not a very big one. Assuming that the Asgard ships are pretty old, they probably DID have larger crews once upon a time but now they're pretty minimal due to their population troubles. Also there are a lot more Asgard back in their home galaxy. Maybe when the ships are tooling around there they have bigger crews depending on what they're doing than when they're out gallavanting around the Local Group of galaxies.

    They stated in one of the eps. That they have very huge engines. So that alone would take up alot of space. And I am pretty sure those Jafa where killed or beamed inside a mountain where they had a choice to leave but the simbiote will die or just stay there and die.
    And NO, that is not Thors Daddy.

    "Odin" may never be seen as an Asgard but we have seen they "Eye of Odin". It turned red for a few days.

    Yes Thor did say that he transported his crew off the ship before disableing the outbound transporter system. So there has to have been some crew. but I imagine that the crews are small because most of the systems are automated and there's probably not nearly enough Asgard to deal with all the day to day business of their people as well as send about the galaxy to keep up the "Asgard presence" which ensures the Go'auld don't get out of line in the protected planet's treaty. Plus I don't see the Asgard with a Marine Corps, as it were, of foot soldiers. They probably evolved beyond the need for that, or so they'd say.

    As for where did the jaffa go, well the beams probably converted the Jaffa, the pyramids, and other such Go'auld things into energy...then put the energy to work by making Thor's ship go. Cheap renewable powersource for the Asgard, Jaffa bodies and Go'auld technology turned directly into energy. Nummy.

    All joking aside, they probably just converted them to energy and left them like that. Or scattered their energy patterns into the atmosphere rather than tried to transport them into a mountain, or make them prisoner inside the ship or whatnot. Or maybe the beam wasn't a transporter at all but something that just caused the atoms of their bodies to break apart leaving behind a bit of Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen and other base materials. Less messy and less complicated that way. Probably more merciful as well.
