I am preparing to play a Sage in our upcoming campaign, and was reading through the talent tree when I came across the One with the Universe talent. Summary: Spend several minutes meditating and then make a average Astrogation check. If successful may add extra light or dark side points during the encounter depending on how you roll.
I like the power thematically, but Astrogation? I realize that's the power you use to navigate the universe, but it really doesn't seem like one somebody would use to open oneself up and become "one with the universe." Astrogation has always struck me as being more about star charts, mathematical computations, and computers, not getting into a meditative mindset. I don't see how being able to plot a course to Hoth will better help me get in touch with the force.
I would think something like discipline or even vigilance would make more sense. Even perception seems better then astrogation Thoughts?
