  1. I love it! Thank you so much!!!
  2. I’m writing a story about a scientist who is called to investigate the sudden expansion of the supermassive black hole in the center of the galaxy. In the meantime, he is working on a project. I asked John Jackson Miller himself what he could be working on and he said something to do with improving navicomputers. That meshes well on what I’m looking for as I want him to do something related to Hyperspace and navicomputers are used to make Hyperspace jumps. What could the scientist be working on in order to make navicomputers better or more efficient?
  3. I’m thinking about doing something related to Hyperspace. What science can my scientist study about Hyperspace before he’s called away to deal with the supermassive black hole?
  4. Someone on writingforums.org knocked some sense into me. The Star Wars galaxy has had 1,000’s of years to develop stuff so all science left to do is theoretical or observational. I’m going to have him study asteroids. Thanks for putting up with me.
  5. Im going about this all wrong when it comes to asking what idea I want. Im looking for a science thing that my scientist could study. On Steven Jackson games forum, someone suggested the migration patterns of Purgills. It would have been perfect except for the fact that it might lead someone to Ezra and Thrawn. That story will be told in the future. I want something unique but also a science that my scientist can study as his main work. Not an invention.
  6. I don’t know how old the Holonet is in Star Wars Legends or Canon but I am intrigued with it possibly being ancient and social scientists studying it. Perhaps digging through centuries of information to do a little bit of sociology studying how people lived 100’s of years ago but I don’t know. Could someone access the old Holonet? What could be done to see the first Holonet transmission?
  7. I decided to go with a quark 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 shields? Sure. We haven’t seen them but they can easily be done. I’m looking for something that would still be an emerging field of science. Something a Type II/III civilization would do next. Any ideas?
  8. I like the restraining bolt for organics. I searched Wookieepedia and the closest were the kill switch in Darth Vader’s suit put their by Dr. Cylo in canon and an offhand hypothetical comment in one of the Legacy of the Force books. This technology is EXTREMELY viable for Star Wars and I think you uncovered a plot problem. Why didn’t the Empire and First Order implant their stormtroopers with this technology or cybernetic kill switches? Their would never be defectors.
  9. Youre right. I’ll give the story another shot.
  10. I am an extremely big Star Wars fan thank you very much. I read all the Wookieepedia articles and science is their; it just isn’t mentioned much. Read Catalyst. Or Gallandiums Fantastic Technology I want to tell an authentic story. It’s bad enough Han Solo doesn’t know what a Parsec is. I could always make the black hole a wormhole but then again that’s problematic.
  11. Okay someone on Reddit informed me that a supermassive black hole could never do what I want it to do. I’ve decided to scrap the whole story.
  12. My idea was perfect. I got it from Mythic Scribes. Intermetallic energy alloy plating. Then I found something like that existed on Wookieepedia. I’m so pissed!!!! Why can’t I find an idea that works and hasn’t been done already?
  13. This time I found an idea. For real this time. Thanks for all your help!!!
  14. 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.
  15. I found an idea in archeology. Thanks for all your help guys!!!
