Cimmeria, designated both P3X-974 and P3X-794 by the Tau'ri, is a planet under the protection of the Protected Planets Treaty, with the dominant race being the Cimmerians, who are descended from northern Europeans. The Cimmerians firmly believed that the Asgard were gods that protected them until the Asgard decided that their deception was no longer necessary following their contact with the Tau'ri.
Also on this planet is the Hall of Thor's Might, which is a cavern where the Cimmerians are tested for the determination on their level of advancement as a society in a whole in general and as individuals in particular. (SG1: "Thor's Chariot")
As a result of the incident where Thor's hammer was disabled, and Heru'ur's subsequent invasion and defeat, an Asgard teacher was left on Cimmeria to assist them in rebuilding the planet, and educating the people. It is unclear how much the Asgard would educate the people. (SG1: "Thor's Chariot")
Behind the scenesEdit
Stargate SG-1: The DVD Collection issue 10 had a misprint which gave the address of this planet as being the same as that for Memphis. In addition to this, issue 14 gave an address which contained the point of origin for Abydos, which is impossible because that symbol is unique to the Abydos Stargate.
The name "Cimmeria" may be a reference the works of Robert E. Howard in which Cimmeria is a fictional land of barbarians in the Hyborian Age, and the homeland of Conan the Barbarian.
