  1. 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 Fusion rocket6.) Halo drive Solar sail8.) EMdrive Photon rocket10.) Magnetic sail11.) Vacuum energy sail12.) Nano electrokinetic thruster Quantum vacuum thruster Plasma drive15.) Beam powered propulsion Nuclear photonic rocket Pulse detonation engine Mach Effect Drive Unruh radiation propulsion drive
  2. 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?
  3. 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?
  4. 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?
  5. 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?
  6. I’m making one last round on all the forums I posted on. I’m looking for something highly advanced.
  7. Yes you are right but I still think Hyperspace science has a few unexplored avenues.
  8. Someone on 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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 liquided!!!! Why can’t I find an idea that works and hasn’t been done already?
  15. 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.
  16. I like the balloon thing on starfighters. Odd they don’t have them already. I found an idea in archeology. Thanks for all your help guys!!!
  17. I was down to 3 ideas. A Guided recirprocating deflector shield from someone on abovetopsecret forums, Synthetic coaxium from FFG forums and The Dynamics of an Asteroid Field on Sjgames. I decided against the shield because it was too wordy and could be a game changer. The coaxium I felt ruined the rarity of hyperfuel and the asteroid belt analyzation was good but their are likely billions of asteroid fields in the galaxy. Who the hell cares about plotting one.
  18. He has a decent budget. But yes I see your point.
  19. Even though I wanted to stay away from midichlorians I am potentially interested. Someone on reddit suggested antichlorians, something that negates midichlorians. What are midiflurions? The same concept.
  20. Antimatter weapons appeared in Legends. In canon it’s mainly focused on hypermatter.
  21. Im trying to write a story about a scientist who is working on something in the era of the New Republic. He does not believe in the Force. I just need something for him to be researching. It really isn’t that important to the story; 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.
