A type of warship used by the Asurans to complement their fleet of Aurora-class warships. While the Aurora-class is used as the primary warship of the Asurans, these ships are presumably used as support ships. At least one of these ships can cloak, though it is likely all of them can. Little is known about these ships as they have not been encountered very often. They are armed with drones, and possibly some kind of energy weapons. Due to the Asuran's ability to mass produce ZPMs, it is possible that these ships are powered by them. (ATL: "Lifeline", "This Mortal Coil") Several sterns of these ships can be seen during the cleansing of Asuras, so it can be assumed that the Lanteans had developed and utilized these ships during the war.

The Daedalus is the first 304 produced by the Tau'ri, and the second generation of interstellar capital ship developed by the United States military and its allies, assigned to the Fast Attack Wing. Commanded by Colonel Steven Caldwell, her standard mission has been to ferry equipment and personnel between Earth and Atlantis, assisting the expedition team there as needed.
The Daedalus is now armed with 32 railguns, Mark-8 and 9 tactical warheads, Asgard plasma beam weapons, and a bay of F-302 fighters. It also possesses Asgard shielding and beaming technology. Unlike its predecessor, the Prometheus, the Asgard defensive equipment was installed during the ship's production rather than added after the fact. However, the Daedalus was not equipped with Asgard weaponry, until it was incorporated during a refit after the extinction of the Asgard race. Originally, to ensure that their technologies were not abused, the Asgard provided an engineering expert to monitor the ship's systems for the first two years of its operation. That role was filled by the Asgard Hermiod. Propulsion consists of standard thrusters as well as an Asgard hyperdrive engine, capable of traveling one way between Earth and Atlantis in 18 days without the use of a ZPM.
