The Asgard are a highly developed, philanthropic race with colonies in both the Ida and Othala galaxies which visited and protected humans on Earth and elsewhere. When interacting with early humans, they posed as beneficent protective gods, eventually giving rise to the Norse mythology on Earth.
Part of the Alliance of Four Great Races, they were among the most advanced races in the known universe, matched only by the Ancients, the Nox, and possibly the Furlings (not including the Planet Builders). They assumed the role of protectors of the Milky Way galaxy and later passed that role down to the Tau’ri, to whom they gifted all of their knowledge and technology. (SG1: “Thor’s Hammer“, “Thor’s Chariot“, “The Fifth Race“, “Unending“)
