  1. I’m trying to write a Star Wars story about someone who figures out a way to travel FTL between galaxies. Hyperspace doesn’t work in the Intergalactic Void, and there is a hyperspace disturbance at the edge of the galaxy blocking travel anyway. I was trying to think of an alternative method of traveling the distance. This drive I envision could ONLY be used in the intergalactic void (so it can’t replace hyperdrive). It allows travel through the void very quickly but NOT instantaneously and there is a weird quantum glitch where the inhabitants of the ship need to wait 2 hours before piercing the veil of another galaxy or weird quantum things could happen to their ship.Anyway I originally thought of a superfluid vacuum drive but I did a lot of research and it’s unlikely the universe is a superfluid. I know Star Wars science is soft as a marshmallow but I want some fake science that sounds realistic. Can anyone help me? I can’t think of anything.Wormholes already exist in Star Wars.
  2. Lets just assume that everything I list below is possible (because some will be based on unknown energies). I have provided some links.Take into account when choosing the drive1.)How efficient and easy to maintain is it?2.) How fast it can go?3.) Anything else that can go wrong.Here are the options1.) Antimatter rocket2,) Ion drive3) Bussard ramjet4.) Dipole drive https://www.nextbigfuture.com/2018/...ss-space-propulsion-concept-dipole-drive.html5.) Fusion rocket6.) Halo drive https://arxiv.org/abs/1903.034237.) Solar sail8.) EMdrive https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RF_resonant_cavity_thruster9.) Photon rocket10.) Magnetic sail11.) Vacuum energy sail12.)

  3. I’m really excited. On August 22nd, Isaac Arthur is doing a special episode for his 200th talking about things he feel will never exist. I can’t wait. What do you think he’ll talk about?
  4. In todays society, we speculate about Faster than light travel, time travel, and teleportation. In Star Trek; these things are completely commonplace. They can easily replicate anything or create a simulated reality. Wormholes, parallel universes and super-sophisticated A.I. would be considered emerging technology. What would be a good science or technology that a scientist could study only in theory in the Star Trek universe. We study the theory of the Alcubierre Drive in 2019 but we are far from creating a warp drive. What would a scientist be studying in Star Trek that is far from being realized?
  5. I know I’ve been going nuts with these posts but I’m very curious about what a scientist could do in SWI was asking for ideas on what a scientist could be working on in the Star Wars galaxy. However my list of can nots are more akin to what an engineer would be working on. Then I guess that’s what I really meant. So that being said I ask. What can an engineer in the Star Wars galaxy be working on?. He works for the canon New Republic.Things he can’t be working on1.) Dyson sphere- Believe it or not it already exists in SWTOR2.) Matrioksha Brain- Computers aren’t that advanced. (HOWEVER, if you have a generic Star Wars name for this- I will take it. Matrioksha is Russian nesting dolls and would obviously not be applicable for Star Wars3.) A Giant Underground City- Sullust has tons of these.4.) Kransnikov Tube- Would be too much of a gamechanger for travel5.) Ford-Svaitar mirror- Too much of a gamechanger for travel6.) Nicoll-Dyson Laser- We already have the Death Star and Starkiller Base7.) Space elevator- They have those8.) Shellworld- Waste of time. Plenty of planets to work with9) Alderton Disk- Too big10.) Ringworld- Exists on Ringo Vinda11.) Underwater cities- Plenty of those12.) Any type of space habitat.Any ideas?
  6. For my story, my scientist is studying sub-Hyperspace, the dimension in which quintessence can be turned into Phantom Energy and then travel to destroy star systems in real time. This is how Starkiller Base fires it’s weapon after draining a sun. (I’m sure Disney will explore it more in due time). However, in the mean time; I wonder what other things my scientist can study about it. Applications I’ve considered would be a sub-hyperdrive which would allow for instantaneous travel like Star Trek: Discovery’s Spore Drive. It also could be used for instant communications. Good stuff but too much of a gamechanger to tinker with. What else could my scientist be studying about sub-hyperspace?
  7. I’m making one last round on all the forums I posted on. I’m looking for something highly advanced.
  8. Yes you are right but I still think Hyperspace science has a few unexplored avenues.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. My Star Wars story will now involve a scientist who is studying the ancient servers of the Holonet. As he learns about its beginnings, he thinks of ways he can make the Holonet better for everyone. What improvements can he make to the Holonet?
  12. Yeah I posted on a lot of forums. I can’t think of ideas on my own. I’m going to stop on Saturday and try to work on my story.
