Quick Question for SG-1 Folks  
Do the Asguard have the capability for time travel?

(and don't no wise-acre say 'only if they're traveling with SG-1') *g*

I'm not sure if I'm remembering correctly or mixing up fanon in my head.

To our knowledge, they don't. They might be *able* to, but given the events with Heimdal studying the preserved remains of a distant ancestor as a means of resolving their cloning issues, if they have the ability, they've chosen not to use it even to save their species.

Damn. *tries to find a work around to idea*

Thank you. :)

What tejas said.

On the other hand. Since Ba'al was able to come up with a time machine all on his lonesome for Continuum..... I'd say it's reasonable to think that they could.

*nod* That's what I was thinking. I just need to think of a plausible work-around. Thanks!

One word: Loki :-)

There could be a scientist out there who disagrees with the Council on the time travel thing.

They do know how to manipulate time. They created the time-bubble trap for the Replicators (when we first meet Fifth) in S6 - I haven't watched the ep, so I can't give details. And Sam used a modified version of that in Unending.

So, at the very least, we know they've been playing with the concept. Hope that helps!

Ah ha! That's what I was remembering! Thank you kindly. :D

heh, I'd imagine the question isn't so much "can they do it" but "why do they chose not to do it." Which would leave you with what is an extremity of need that would overcome their reasons for never travelling.
