Thor considers some unusual sensor readings of Earth.Timing:
SG-1: at the very ending of "Fair Game" (303); BtVS: immediately after "Graduation Day Part II" (3x22)Spoilers:
After all this time?Disclaimer:

Thor studied his ship's sensor records curiously. The event that had taken place was something the Asgard had not seen in a very long time, although he supposed it shouldn't have been entirely unexpected with spending so much time around the homeworld of the Tau'ri.
The multiple species of usually non-humanoid, often part- or wholly-supernatural beings generally known to the younger races as 'demons' were not exactly uncommon throughout the known galaxies - indeed, most Tau'ri would probably have considered the Furlings to be precisely that - but for reasons still unknown Earth was the planet on which they were most common. The Alterans had at one time nearly eliminated them, but with their Ascension they had returned in force.
And it was another kind of ascension, a human attempting to become
a demon, that he had witnessed as the Tau'ri and Goa'uld had bickered over the possession of Earth's Stargates. The consequences had it been successful would have been disastrous for the planet; Thor had, in fact, nearly decided to intervene in the matter. It was the fact that an Asgard cruiser firing its main weapons at the planet in the middle of the diplomacy would not have been good for said diplomacy that he'd hesitated long enough for a large blast of primitive explosives to successfully kill the beast (Thor mused that there would probably have been some sort of sarcastic remark had Colonel O'Neill been aware of the fact that the 'demon' had, in fact, been a rather large snake).
This was what had him curious; the Tau'ri had, apparently, been expecting the event, and had taken steps to counter it - primitive steps, true, but successful ones, and with a surprisingly low loss rate considering their opposition.
His follow-up scans had detected that there had been present at the scene a human female who registered as different somehow. There had been another, fairly close by, but fainter. Thor wondered if they were hok'tars of some sort, and if so did the SGC know about them? And, if they did not, was it within his rights to tell them? After all, the Asgard High Council disliked interfering in the affairs of others, potential Fifth Race or not, and some of the things he already did for O'Neill were pushing the boundaries of their policies just a bit.
Sighing, Thor dismissed those thoughts and directed his ship to return to Othala. He would have to address these issues later; the Replicators were, at the moment, a more pressing concern.fin
