Physics schmisics.... Razz

Have any of you read recent studies that show that the speed of light (that is, "c") may not be constant? If that turns out to be true, certain basic things, lik ...

I suppose it matters how far "into" a system the jump is supposed to take you. If it takes you right up to the planet, you'd have to worry about where it's moons are and any other satellite ...

Sci-Fi doesn't care about Occum's razor, after all. Razz

It's great to see all the theories on what it might be or how it might "work."

Ships must make near lightspeed in order to get into hyperspace.

Not sure where I read that. I've been doing a lot of SW reading lately.

But, that's why we see them zip off to a visual horizon ...

Yes. I've always interprted the blue and white swirly stuff as "speed blurs" just like is done in (for example) The Fast and the Furious when they use a shot of NOS.

In other words, the ...

No, I said the slingshot would save fuel.

Is there a film dialogue wherein hyperspace is defined as you have presented it? In film we see ships litterally accelerate through real space to such a ...

I see what you mean. However, you're not considering certain otherrelevant facts. A blaster pistol does 4D damage. A heavy blaster 5D. A rifle does 5D damage,etc. There are weapons that should be ...

On the bowcaster, I find it silly that a wookiee's minimum strength (for the species) is higher than the damage of a brand new bowcaster.

It's like Conan the Barbarian using a slingshot. Not sayin ...

Well, since you put it that way....


In any case, for SW purposes, I throw out all the technobabble. Hyperdrives push a ship at whatever speed through real space. "Hyperspace" is not a ...

Spaghettification. If the gravity gradient's too steep, that's what happens. Also, we know it happens in hyperspace because that's what the technobabble says.

To quote Wookieepedia:

Except that the ships are traveling at dozens or even more than 100 times the speed of light, which mitigates the influence of gravity. It's likely that ships traveling in hyperspace are traveling we ...

It's a good question. Other good questions are, "when is the universe", "why is the universe", and "is the universe"? All of these can have non-trivial answers.
To which ...

Yes, our little primate brains can't really conceive of the largeness of space. It's huuuge.

I get where garhkal is coming from. The footage of hyperspace travel shows changes of direction through the view port of the millenium falcon.


Nevertheless, the arc of the curve must necessarily ...

Also, I like the idea of a higher initiative giving more opportunities for actions. It adds a simple mechanic that helps to differentiate characters by way of their baseline capabilities, rather than ...
