The Protected Planets Treaty was an intergalactic armistice between the Asgard High Council and Goa'uld Empire.


The treaty ensures that certain planets remain free from Goa'uld oppression. The Goa'uld view it as simply recognizing that the Human race exists solely to serve as hosts and slaves for them. The System Lords are expected to enforce the treaty on all Goa'uld. In turn, the Asgard may not use their technology to advance a race living on one of the planets, even to prevent a natural disaster. Limits are also placed on the development of the populations of the planet to prevent them from becoming a threat to the Goa'uld. Definition of "threat" rests solely with the High Council of System Lords. {{Cite|SG1|Fair Game|Red Sky|Fail Safe|New Order, Part 1}}
In case of disputed claim to treaty violation a commission of inquiry would assemble to look into the matter, the commission will include an equal number of Asgard and Goa'uld. {{Cite|SG1|Fail Safe}}
As of 2004, there were 27 planets under the protection of the treaty. {{Cite|SG1|New Order, Part 1}}
The treaty was nullified with the disintegration of the Goa'uld Empire and with the Battle of the Asgard Legacy|extinction of the Ida Asgard. {{Cite|SG1|Reckoning, Part 1|Unending}}

Alternate timeline

  • In an alternate timeline where SG-1 never returned to expose the NID's rogue operation, Earth was abandoned by its allies, ending its inclusion in the Protected Planets Treaty. As a result, the Asgard did not intervene when Earth was destroyed by Apophis. Though the Biliskner was in orbit at the time, the Asgard onboard were unable to intervene despite their wish to. (Stargate SG-1: Apocalypse: Stargate SG-1: Hostile Ground|Hostile Ground)
  • Treaty Details

  • Treaty Law Section 326 states that no human planet will be allowed to advance technologically to a point where they may become a threat to the Goa'uld. {{Cite|SG1|Fair Game}}
  • The Passage of Nilor was previously banned from Goa'uld use until the inclusion of Earth into the treaty under Addendum 10815. {{Cite|SG1|Fair Game}}
  • Subsection 42 states that the people on the planets cannot be artificially advanced through Asgard technological means. This prevented the Asgard from interfering in natural disasters and use of their technology in such circumstances would nullify the treaty entirely. {{Cite|SG1|Red Sky|Fail Safe}}
  • After Earth was included in the Treaty following the SGC exposing Nirrti's attempt to kill Cronus during the summit, Lord Yu and Cronus affirmed that Earth itself would be off-limit to Goa'uld assault, but with the understanding that any SG teams encountered off Earth would be fair game. {{Cite|SG1|Fair Game}}
  • Asgard protected planets

  • Adara II

  • Galar
  • K'tau

  • Violations by the Goa'uld

    In 1998, Heru'ur made an attempt to occupy Cimmeria- previously protected by Thor's Hammer until it was damaged the previous year in order to save Teal'c- but was stopped by Thor after SG-1 was able to contact him through the Hall of Thor's Might. {{Cite|SG1|Thor's Chariot}}
    The Goa'uld have attempted to circumvent the Protected Planets Treaty on a number of occasions to launch attacks against Earth. The first such attempt, in 2001, was the result of Tanith (on Anubis' behalf) blackmailing the Tollan (people)|Tollan Curia. Under threat of Tollana being attacked, Phase-shifting weapon|weapons of mass destruction were built with the Tollan's Phase device|phase shift technology, with the intention of using these weapons to bypass Stargate Command's iris and destroy the Earth gate. The Goa'uld System Lords denied any knowledge of the incident, thus allowing it to appear as though rogue elements of the Tollan had committed the attack. {{Cite|SG1|Between Two Fires|Fail Safe}}
    The second attempt to circumvent the treaty occurred in 2002 when a meteorite whose mass was 40% pure Naquadah was dragged into the solar system by the Goa'uld and set on a collision course with Earth, knowing that the Tau'ri would attempt to stop it with a nuclear warhead- such an attempt would cause an explosion equal to that in force of a small supernova with enough energy to set the atmosphere of Earth on fire and boil the oceans- while also aware that the Asgard, under the terms of the treaty, would not be able to intervene to prevent what would simply appear to be a natural disaster. SG-1 thwarted the attempt by using the Selmak's Tel'tak|Tel'tak they flew the bomb in with to open a hyperspace window through Earth to avoid collision, taking the asteroid from one side of Earth to the other. {{Cite|SG1|Fail Safe}}
    In 2002, Osiris, underlord of Anubis, headed a fleet of two Ha'tak vessels which attacked Adara II. She was able to defeat Thor's ship and take him hostage. Anubis arrived and Mind probe|probed Thor. SG-1 was able to rescue Thor but were caught trying to escape in a Tel'tak. Luckily, Freyr arrived in three O'Neill-class ship|O'Neill-class ships and Anubis retreated. {{Cite|SG1|Revelations}}
    In 2004 the System Lord Anubis Battle of Antarctica|outright attacked Earth but was defeated by the Ancient drone weapons of the Antarctic outpost. {{cite|SG1|Lost City, Part 2}}

    Violations by the Asgard

    In 2001, SG-1's trip to the protected planet K'Tau caused damage to Eye of Odin|K'Tau's sun; their attempt to fix the problem failed, and the Asgard refused to help as it would be a violation of the treaty. However, after a second attempt involving the Stargate that was highly unlikely to succeed, the damage was mysteriously fixed, apparently with the Asgard's help, although the evidence available could also suggest that Stargate Command's earlier attempt to fix the damage simply had a 'delayed reaction'. In any case, Stargate Command's attempts would have provided the Asgard with plausible deniability, in case the circumstances were ever to be challenged by the Goa'uld. {{Cite|SG1|Red Sky}}
    The Asgard have provided the Tau'ri fleet|Earth fleet with a number of Asgard technological upgrades such as Asgard weapons, Asgard shield|shields and Asgard hyperdrive|hyperdrive, albeit primarily as thanks for Earth's assistance in helping them deal with various Replicator incursions, suggesting that the Goa'uld were left ignorant of the upgrades' origins due to their lack of knowledge of the Replicators. {{Cite|SG1|Disclosure|New Order, Part 1|Covenant}}
