Stargate Universe - Technology in Stargate - Netflix
In the fictional universe of Stargate, a number of technologically advanced races and societies have produced a variety of highly advanced weapons, tools, and spacecraft. By liaising with these races and learning from them, Earth too has begun to create its own futuristic technology. All such technology is SCI-classified top secret, and is used solely by the SGC and its SG teams, or in Atlantis.
Stargate Universe - Asgard technology - Netflix
The Asgard are an extremely advanced race who become allies of Earth, and provide many of their technologies to the SGC. They were once contemporaries of the Ancients, and learned much from them. The Asgard are no longer capable of traditional reproduction and instead perpetuate themselves through cloning, as they have the technology to upload and store Asgard consciousnesses and transfer them to new bodies. Unfortunately the repeated cloning process has resulted in degeneration due to the lack of genetic diversity. To solve this, the Asgard developed a form of controlled mutation to introduce variations into their gene pool. Neutronium is a key element of Asgard technology. Prominent Asgard technologies include: Battle Armor 6-foot-tall (1.8 m) metallic suits worn by a rogue group of Asgard in Pegasus. They possess a built in shield-wall generator that can hold back weapons-fire from conventional weapons for several minutes and an EM dampening field that negates any scanning equipment used on them. They also have a preprogrammed self-destruct in case anyone tries to remove the suit by force. The interior of the suits mould to the wearer, allowing normal humans to use them in addition to the much smaller Asgard. As seen in Stargate Universe, these appear to be in fact an old Ancient technology. Beaming technology Teleportation system that allows people and objects to be moved nearly instantly across long distances, capable of handling objects as large as an entire skyscraper. The Asgard have shared beaming technology with Earth, and it is installed on Earth battlecruisers. The technology also falls into the hands of the Goa'uld after Anubis probes Thor's mind. Beaming requires a sensor lock on the subject; members of SG teams are equipped with locator beacons, and later locator chip implants, to facilitate emergency beam-out. The Wraith have developed countermeasures to prevent beaming aboard their ships. Beaming is not possible through shields. With a slight modification, Asgard beams can convert energy into desired forms such as air and food. Computer core Computer containing all the knowledge of the Asgard, including their entire recorded history. It is installed on the Odyssey as the Asgard's final act before their self-destruction. The core can generate a holographic representation of any Asgard for interaction. It has its own power source that is tied into the systems of the ship. The core is very user-friendly, allowing IOA agent Marrick to create a Replicator simply by giving it a chip with the base design (the core filled in the blanks). Dialing device Small stone-shaped device capable of activating a Stargate to a predetermined destination without the need for a DHD. Directed energy weapon Asgard starships are armed with energy weapons. Kvasir loans an energy weapon to the SGC in order to return numerous alternate universe SG teams to their respective realities. In “Unending”, the Asgard install plasma beam weapons, their latest technology, on the Odyssey. These beams are capable of overcoming the shields of an Ori mothership. The weapons are later installed on the other Daedalus-class battlecruisers and are shown to be highly effective against both Asuran and Wraith ships. Hologram system Technology that allows the remote projection of three-dimensional images. The Asgard use holograms to disguise themselves as Norse gods on primitive planets. Asgard communication systems use holograms to facilitate conversation. The SGC has developed its own version of an Asgard hologram system, called “Chimera”. Anubis acquires the technology after probing Thor's mind. This technology may also have been shared with or acquired from the Ancients as shown in Stargate Atlantis, aboard the Ancient battle ship Tria. Intergalactic hyperdrive Asgard hyperdrives allow travel between galaxies in days or hours, given a sufficient power source. The Asgard have shared their hyperdrive technology with Earth. Invisibility device Technology given to the Tiernod to hide from predators. Several are stolen by rogue NID agents. Replicator disruptor satellite Application of the Ancient Replicator disruptor designed to function on a planetary scale. One is provided to the Alpha Site to defend against Fifth. Earth is developing its own version called the “Planetary Wide Anti-Replicator Weapon” (PWARW). Shields Asgard starships are equipped with energy shields. Asgard shields are capable of enduring all sorts of weapons fire from every existing race. Goauld weapons do virtually no damage to it, while the much feared Ori weapons require several direct hits to penetrate. Also Asgard shields have been the only known defense against even the Ancient's drone weapons. Asgard shield technology has been shared with Earth. Thor's Hammer Device installed on Cimmeria to protect it against the Goa'uld. It scans incoming travelers through the Stargate and beams those harboring a symbiote into a prison, which allows humans to leave but not Goa'uld (nor Jaffa with juvenile symbiotes). SG-1 disables the Hammer to rescue Teal'c, and later Thor provides a new Hammer to Cimmeria which provides an exception to one Jaffa, Teal'c. Time dilation device Technology that manipulates the passage of time. One is used in an attempt to trap the Replicators on the planet Halla. Another is loaned to Earth to seal an interdimensional gap in a black hole. The Asgard core on the Odyssey has a built-in time dilation device, used to escape the Ori in “Unending”.
