Artificial life-forms composed of nanites, introduced in episode “Progeny” of season 3 of Stargate Atlantis. Asurans are similar to the human-form Replicators of Stargate SG-1 and so are called that in the show. The Asurans were created by the Ancients to combat the Wraith but were ultimately abandoned, and seemingly destroyed by the Ancients, for being too dangerous, although they were not the weapon against the Wraith the Ancients believed they could be. Extremely aggressive, a small number of nanites thrived and eventually built an advanced civilization.
The Asurans operate out of the Pegasus galaxy, attacking the wraith, whilst also being hostile toward the Tauri, but no the Ancients.
Players may join and become an Asuran themselves!
Players who wish to stir up trouble and benefit from the increased strength and survivability of being a Replicator (Asuran), access to certain ancient technologies as well as to not have to worry about picking a habitable planet.
