Avenger is a computer program, named after a comic book character, developed by Jay Felger, a scientist based at the SGC.
SG-1 have encountered various races with the technology to preserve life through different methods of stasis.

The virus was sent to P5S-117, a planet occupied by the System Lord Ba’al. When the entire gate network was affected, it was thought that the virus had moved through the gates through automatic correlative updates designed to compensate for stellar drift. When Felger and Carter went to the planet to fix the problem, Felger realised that the virus wasn’t the virus he had written, and Carter suggested that, because he had the most to gain, Ba’al had modified the virus to affect every Stargate.

|valign="top"|While on P7J-989, SG-1 were trapped in a virtual reality by devices that acted as a sort of stasis. The technology linked their minds to others, as well as kept the mind active through the virtual reality and sustained their physical well being.  The people of the planet had been in suspended animation for 1022 years. It was explained by the mock version of Dr Fraiser that the machines provided oxygen, fed the occupants, removed waste and controled the nervous system, all this through a series of punctures in their temples, spinal cords and abdominal areas. These punctures were created by tubes, that wrapped themselves around the occupant. These tubes were attached to the large black chairs that the sleepers were seated in. (2.04 "The Game Keeper")

|valign="top"|When Hathor captured SG1, O’Neill, Carter and Daniel were frozen, using the Goa’uld form of Cryonics. The freezing process involved lowering a tank into a pit, which lowered the temperature of the body. Once the tank was taken out of the pit, the person frozen inside would revive automatically. Colonel O’Neill had been taken as a host, but before the melding could take place, he was frozen. The Goa’uld died. Teal’c was not frozen, perhaps because this form of cryonics had a damaging effect on the symbiote. The process had an affect on the human body, after being brought out of the stasis, the user would feel disorientated and cough for a few minutes. (2.22 "Out Of Mind", 3.01 "Into The Fire")

The Goa’uld Marduk was trapped in his sarcaphagus with a creature, which ate him alive. Because the sarcophagus did its best to keep the Goa’uld alive, the death would have been much slower.

On the outisde, the canopic jar was a simple ceramic jar, on the inside was a Goa’uld naquadah power source, emiting an electrical charge and keeping the symboites alive, and a liquid sedating it. Osiris remained alive for thousands of years in stasis. When the seal to his jar was broken while being studied in Chicago, the Goa'uld was able to take a host and seemed to be able to control her
 
without difficulty. (1.14 "The Curse")

Information on the sleepers could be accessed through a computer screen just inside one of the two chambers the sleepers were kept in. The stasis chambers were supplied energy by reactors powered by heavy water, also refered to as deuterium oxide. (4.02 "The Other Side")

In this form of stasis, the consciousness of the sleeper cannot survive in the mind. To prevent loss of memory and intellect, the consciousness would have to be stored separately from the body. An active matrix memory module sustained the mind of one sleeper, the module also sustained the body of that sleeper. If the body perished, the consciousness could be purged from the system.

As explained by Dr Rodney McKay, the sleeper is ‘in a state of metabolic stasis.’ This means that the sleeper does still age, but the aging process is significantly slowed. The stasis is described as a ‘deep, dreamless sleep.’ Two operational Ancient stasis chambers have been found in the Milky Way Galaxy: one in the Antarctic Outpost, the other, on the planet P3X-584.

Summary

Avenger is a computer program, named after a comic book character, developed by Jay Felger, a scientist based at the SGC.
