History

The Ancients were once known as the Alterans and evolved in another galaxy before coming to the Milky Way. (SG1: "Avalon, Part 2") The Ancients were present on Earth over 3 million years ago. (SG1: "Frozen") The Ancients discovered evidence of a structure within the Cosmic microwave background radiation so they launched a number of Seed ships and Destiny to go out into the universe. (SGU, "The Greater Good", "Air, Part 1") The Ancient used to meet on PB2-908 with others from the Asgard, Furlings and Nox and created the Alliance of Four Great Races. (SG1: "The Fifth Race", "The Torment of Tantalus") They left the Milky Way area a long time ago but left behind the Repository of Knowledge to pass on what they knew. (SG1: "The Fifth Race") They were building a great city on Vis Uban when they were afflicted by a plague. They had a city that they made lost to anyone who might try to find it. (SG1: "Fallen") they built a device on Dakara which was used to recreate life in the galaxy after the plague. (SG1: "Threads") They tried to stop it but in the end had to accept their own deaths. (SG1: "Window of Opportunity") Some of the Ancients ascended and became the Others. (SG1: "Full Circle") Many Ancients left for the Pegasus galaxy and became the Lanteans. (SGA: "Rising")
