What can a scientist in my Star Wars fan fic be working on?

Recommended Posts

Im trying to create a story about a scientist who is working on something in the era of the New Republic. He does not believe in the Force. He believe in an energy field that can be manipulated by some people but doesn't believe it controls fate or binds the galaxy together. Anyways, I just need something for him to be researching. It really isn't that important to the profile; it just has to sound cool and scientific. Also it can't have already been done in Legends or Canon. I want a fresh idea.

 

It cannot be

 

A time machine

 

A teleporter

 

A matter replicator

 

Synthetic tibanna gas

 

Synthetic coaxium (hyperfuel)

 

A singularity Weapon

 

Any type of droid

 

Anything to do with holograms

 

A food synthesizer

 

Anything to do with the Force or Midi-chlorians

 

A shrink ray

 

A freeze ray

 

Pico and femtotechnology

 

A Dyson sphere or any type of megastructure.

 

Liquid metal armor or a nano morph

 

In canon, during the Empire, scientists were researching methods to control droids, lasers that can punch through deflector shields and ship scale disintigrators. These ideas are therefore taken.

 

I'm trying to look for something that was never researched until the era of the New Republic like kyber crystals weren't until the Empire used them for a superlaser and even then, they had been used in weapons formation in the past. I'm looking for something that presumably hasn't been thought of in the 25,000 years of time where almost everything has already been done.

Riddle me this; if a force user were to provide a blood transfusion for a non-force user, would the mitoclorians transfer?

And right there is why the prequels ruined Star Wars. 

 

 

 

 

Well... bad acting, writing, a specious concept, and a complete rethinking of the backstory really didn't help either.

No. Or at least presumably no based on their analogue.

 

(Red Blood Cells don't have mitochondria as they lose them along with the cell nucleus at hmm, erythrogenesis (iirc), so they- presumably- don't have midichlorians in SW either. You would get some mitochondria from WBCs but there are far fewer of them than RBCs in a blood transfusion)

Does anybody read Darths & Droids? Midichlorian transfusions are a major and hilarious plotpoint in that.

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

I imagine there will still be a booming research industry for erectile dysfunction.

More specifically he's captured another Waru alien and is experimenting with its healing properties. :p

Aren't you a little short for a... erh, never mind.

Uh, please don't tell me that's still going? I was a (bigger) fan of the DM of the Rings series that it apes, but I followed D&D for probably a year or so when it first started before I realized that I simply like reading and watching stuff in a big chunk rather than piecemeal weekly and decided I'd wait a few years before coming back...and I never did. It's been many years now.

Sorry, I don't have any good ideas mostly because my knowledge is limited to the movies and a few games.

science, even in a galaxy far, far away, will never explain the greatest mysteries o' the universe. what happens inside a black hole? concepts such as love, justice and God will necessarily forever elude the grasp o' science.  and why did the tor developers have to go and ruin revan?  some questions is too terrible for science to contemplate. 

 

HA! Good Fun!


"Those who won our independence by revolution were not cowards. They did not fear political change. They did not exalt order at the cost of liberty. To courageous, self-reliant men, with confidence in the power of free and fearless reasoning applied through the processes of popular government, no danger flowing from speech can be deemed clear and present, unless the incidence of the evil apprehended is so imminent that it may befall before there is opportunity for full discussion. If there be time to expose through discussion the falsehood and fallacies, to avert the evil by the processes of education, the remedy to be applied is more speech, not enforced silence."--Justice Louis Brandeis, Concurring, Whitney v. California, 274 U.S. 357 (1927)

It's still going.  :yes:  Although they're bidding their time right now until the current trilogy is complete and post fluff once a week. 

 

As for fanfictional scientist, he might look into the curious phenomena of nothing f†cking changing throughout ages upon ages in that universe, ever. Seriously, everything -- guns, aircraft, fashion, British accents on Imperials -- is the same for Old and New Republic. And Empire.

On the no mentioning holograms, how about better holograms. ;)

Well, they have finished both the prequels and the OT at this point. Essentially until the next flick it's in maintanance mode, and Return of the Jedi felt like an ending.

Okay so my archeology idea didn’t work. My scientist is called upon by the New Republic to investigate why the supermassive black hole is more active than usual and sucking in things from a further range. I just need something for the scientist to be studying before he is called away. It has to sound fresh and cool.

He was probably studying the deterioration of hyperlanes when exposed to prolonged solar flares and electromagnetic radiation when close to massive astronomical objects.

I decided to make my story about a quark star; a hypothetical star. It’s better than a black hole because we don’t even know if they exist. Perfect for expansion However, I still need something for him to be working on before he deals with the quark star. I’m looking not for a gadget or piece of tech. I’ve decided everything technological that we can think of, can be done. Speeders with deflector shield. Sure. Never seen it appear but it could easily be done. See what I’m driving at? I’m looking for something he can work on that would be still an emerging field of study. Any ideas on what someone in a Type II/Type III civilization could be looking to do?
