  1. I’m just trying to pick just ONE idea for my Star Wars campaign and I can’t choose. I’m trying to pick something that would be GROUNDBREAKING and NEW that a scientist can create in the Star Wars Canon galaxy. CANON only. Based on my observation, Star Wars canon seems to lack a bit in biotechnology. The Vong really introduced the Legends to Biotech. Canon really doesn’t have it. So here’s my list. Choose the best one that fits the criteria. I will give my thoughts on each entry. Their are not too many entries. 1.) Black Panther suit- This would just be armor that has the ability to absorb kinetic energy. Not the rest of the Black Panther stuff. I think some Legends armor could absorb kinetic energy but not to the degree T’challa did where he would use it as a weapon by harnessing the stored energy. It would be cool but also their isn’t a lot of hand to hand combat in Star Wars. Everyone just fires blasters so I don’t know if this is not useful? 2.) Cultured plant cells- This would be like making meat in a laboratory with cultured cells but this is plant cell culturing where you can make all sorts of wacky things like a meiloroon “Steak”. Meiloroons are those fruits from Rebels. Star Wars Canon does have GM crops. It was mentioned in Servants of the Empire so I don’t know if this could be easily done. 3.) Ionic wind pum This is something that can replace fans to cool computer CPU's. It uses ionic wind which hasn't been made commercial yet. I got this idea after the Bad Batch arc of Clone Wars, since the Techno Union uses a special room to cool the massive computer that they hooked up Echo to. This would be much smaller. Its useful but it may seem a little too utilitarian and they use ion engines in Star Wars ubiquitously, so maybe this would be a piece of cake. 4.) Universal soil- This would be soil that could have any type of crop in the universe grow in it so you could always grow stuff. Yet this may be already very commonly done with certain fertilizers. 5.) Synthetic microbiome- A microbiome is the vast colony of bacteria that lives on and in your body. This would be a specially made synthetic one, that could help make a person healthier. Could be very useful since besides bacta; their doesn't seem to be a lot of medical stuff in Star Wars. Yet, their is bacta which covers a lot. 6.) Neuralyzer-type device- This is the Men in Black pen shaped device that flashes a light and wipes a person's memories. While it may be a rip off of MIB, I don't know if erasing memories is still easy to do in Canon. It was easy in Legends. Could also be too dangerous to wipe memories instantly though. 7.) Orgasm drug- This would be a drug that could help a species achieve orgasm. It might not work for all species. 8.) Thought recognition interface- This is a computer that activates with an owner's brainwaves. May be great for security but it isn't really more than a novelty. We are almost their with this technology here on Earth but Star Wars tends to stick to buttons for computers. Yet I don’t know why this is true. 9.) Geo-seismic stabilization system This would make building's earthquake proof. They had problems with earthquakes on the moon of Gorse in A New Dawn but maybe they have the tech, but are just too lazy to build this around the mining facility. 10.) Massively multiplayer virtual environments- This would be a VR world for a child or other being to interact with others in and play games. True VR is rare in canon, but they did make a mention of virtual holoscapes in the Aftermath books. 11.) Graser- Instead of a laser, this would be a Gamma ray laser BUT grasers are invisible so its no fun to fire them at people. I was thinking of using it to create micro black holes but that also might suck a ship in and be dangerous 12.) Digital instrument 3D sound casting- This would be putting someone in a "bubble" where only they could hear a certain music. Might be utilitarian. 13.) Flotation surfactants- This would be things you could put in the water, that would help you float to the surface of water. Yet, they may have mastered this already. 14.) Brainship- This would be plugging in a disembodied brain in a jar to be able to control a spaceship. The B'omarr monks transplanted brains into jars but this would be one controlling a ship. They probably could do this? It would be cool but maybe unecessary when you could use droid brains? 18.) Full sensory recording- A full recording of all a being's senses and experiences. I don’t know if their brain-computer interfaces can do this. 19.) Stillsuit- A suit that helps conserve every drop of water and allow you to survive in a desert. From Dune. However they had coolth suits on Tatooine though? This is more easy to wear though but it would only be needed if stranded in the desert. 20.) Cognitive combat augmentations- Brain implants that give a being the ability to fight. They do have brain implants and I think Greivous had this installed. 21.) Solar sunshade- A giant sunshade that could block a planets sun from beating on it. A way to reduce a planets global warming? Could be constructed since they built a Death Star but since they have a ton of planets to choose from; they might not care to build this. 22.) Liquid breathing- This is breathing an oxygen rich liquid instead of air. I think the Gungans do this already and they had rebreathers in Episode 1 and another similar device in Resistance so this might be useless. Just pick the very best ONE that is something that would be a new advancement in technology.
  2. I think I found all of them. Did I miss any? Enjoy my list. I did a lot of research and I think I found everything their is to find on Wookieepedia when it comes to sci fi Ideas. Did I miss any?Here’s my research- Extra-dimensional space.

  3. Someone on another forum brought up the intriguing idea of how a healthcare system would work in Star Wars. Let’s just assume the system is for the Old Republic or New Republic. (Empire probably wouldn’t cover non-humans). I was thinking maybe universal healthcare. How could this system be created and what would it entail? I’m not great with economics.
  4. Does anybody remember anything from legends or canon that they said could not be done with their current science and technology?
  5. Does anybody know where I can find a site that generates ideas for sci fi technology? I can’t kick my obsession so I’m just going to try feeding it.
  6. Do any of you recall reading a Star Wars book (Legends or Canon) where you recall them implying or downright stating something that could NOT be achieved with current science and technology
  7. I’ve been obsessing over technology in Star Wars since 2011. 2020 is coming next week and I want to quit this obsession and stop pestering people on this forum and other forums for stimuli. My therapist is next to useless. I’m on the highest amount of meds for OCD but it is a very powerful disorder. I’ve never been this addicted to something. I just love speculative science and I’ve been a Star Wars fan since I was 6. Literally 20 years. That’s fine but this 9 year old obsession needs to end. I’m not going to post on this forum anymore unless it’s something unrelated to tech. I just need to close the book. I need something in my head to hold onto when I think about the scientists in Star Wars and what they are working on. Here’s what I know. -FTL Tech is extremely mature and almost equivalent to an internal combustion engine. -Matter replicators, Time machines and Teleporters do NOT exist in canon and since those 3 things are wants that any sentient being would dream of since the beginning of time (free food, undoing past mistakes, saving energy traveling), the fact that they don’t exist leads me to believe they tried (many times possibly) and they just can’t achieve it with technology. Through the Force though; it is possible. Star Wars has nanotech but never anything smaller. I don’t think that pico and femtotech is possible because of midichlorians. Things that go even smaller than nano are just not in the realm of science. Anti-aging doesn’t really work either or Plaugeis wouldn’t have strived for it. Simulated reality like the Matrix is possible but it’s very likely they achieved it, it was a fad for a couple of decades and then determined to be unhealthy and fell out of popularity. Instant knowledge is available in flash training but it is likely expensive and school is viewed as a healthier way to learn. Lastly dark energy and dark matter are well known and dark energy/quintessence is harvested for Starkiller Base’s solar system obliterater With all that being said “What do you think scientists are working on at the end of the Sequel Trilogy?”
  8. I understand but Mandalorian Season 2, Clone Wars Season 7 and the Obi Wan Kenobi series all take place before 35 ABY. I think the quote from the article I provided says a lot. Something gamechanging is going to happen with Episode 9.
  9. Well according to the article, I think that Star Wars will be no more as we know it past 35 ABY. Stories can still be told that take place anywhere before that time. I don’t think their will be any Jedi or Sith post-35 ABY.
  10. According to this article https://io9.gizmodo.com/the-sentimental-reason-it-was-so-hard-to-write-the-rise-1840216994/amp “I think the reason you and J.J. can’t write this scene is because you don’t want Star Wars to end.’ And I looked at J.J. and we knew he was right and then we had to go and write it.” What on Earth can this mean? I don’t know how Star Wars could possibly end? How do you think the story can reach the Omega Point where their is nothing left to be a story in the timeline post 35 ABY? Some theories I have include 1.) The Force will “break” and no new Force-sensitives will ever be born again. 2.) The people of the galaxy will ascend the mortal plane and vanish into the Force. 3.) The First Order will fall and their will be absolutely no government and it will be a lawless galaxy. 4.) Everyone will migrate from this galaxy in search of a new one. 5.) The galaxy will be completely destroyed What about you. How can Star Wars “end”?
  11. I watch Isaac Arthur and John Michael Godier but I’m looking for an online blog, sthat talks about a future science tech or idea every week (or every month) to help me generate ideas for science in my role playing game. It should be •Ongoing and consistently at once a week or month •Postulates SPECIFIC and oftentimes creative ideas •Amateur stuff is highly recommended
  12. But I’m shooting with the wrong question. I will change it. Which of these techs could best fit into Star Wars?
