PostSubject: SW Technical Talk   Mon Jan 04, 2010 12:40 pm

First topic message reminder :

This topic is for talk about the Star Wars technology, like lightsabers and stuff.



To start us off, let's discuss jetpacks. I think the jetpacks in Star Wars are powered by highly compressed gas, which upon ignition provides the thrust in the form of kinetic energy for lifting off the ground. Starting the jetpack ignites a small amount of gas, then the output and steering are controlled by a power lever and by adding more power to either side of the thrust nozzles. Does that sound good?

What about black lightsabers? Where do u think they find the black crystals?

Black lightsabers? Do you mean the blade that the death watchers had from the jedi temple? Found during , i believe, the sith wars?

Hmmm...... those sound interesting, I think there might of been multiple colors in the crystals., other then the ones that are most popular.

I am assuming we are talking about the same saber so:

The Darksaber was an ancient lightsaber that was stolen by the Mandalorians during the downfall of the Galactic Republic. It was eventually passed down to the Mandalorian Death Watch member Pre Vizsla. It had a unique black blade that was flattened and came to a point like a traditional vibroblade, rather than the rounded beam of more standard lightsabers; it also hummed at a higher pitch than a standard lightsaber.

This lightsaber had many unique features that distinguished it from almost all other known lightsabers. The hilt was slightly longer than the standard saber length. The blade was flattened and pointed making its general shape closer to a vibroblade in appearance. The blade color was black which is unique in itself. However, the more interestingly, the core of the blade was black and the edges glowed white. This is opposite to all other known blade colors, where the central core is white and the edges glow in the specific color

Since it doesn't say where the crystal came from here is my theory behind it.

If you study the origin of Diamonds you will know that diamonds are white in nature, the clearer, the better. But where do they come from? Compressed coal over a long period of time.

Now these are 2 theories since I don't know if anyone used a diamond in SW yet for there sabers so it will be one of my theories.

I believe, since the dark saber also takes on a different form, that instead of a crystal at the core it has a coal. The black center with the white glow around it is because of the black coal and the white is from the diamond center.

Another idea is that it is just a white diamond and when focused all the colors that the diamond produces is focused into a black beam.

I like the coal idea better:P.

Anybody know how the Death Star lasers work? And where are that things engins?

i think it sounds spot on, one of the other things about the jetpack is that there is a special retainer mandalorian bounty hunters wore and they would use thier tongue to controll their path with the retainer, i thought that was cool too

The Death Stars, the Galactic Empire's ultimate terror weapons, were battle stations several hundred kilometers in diameter and mounting a directed energy superlaser capable of completely destroying a planet with a single shot along with 15000 lasers, ion, turbolasers batteries, and heavy turbolasers in all plus an additional 768 tractor beam emplacements. However, the first Death Star's defenses were not tight enough to stop starfighters from penetrating them.

also:

The 501st Legion was sent to Mygeeto during the Clone Wars to collect an ancient Mygeetan crystal which was an experimental power source that the Chancellor required for a top-secret tributary laser-stream project codenamed "Hammertong," which would be used on the first Death Star.
Darth Sidious later ordered the Death Star's construction after the Galactic Empire was formed, in order to secure his new-formed absolute power. Wilhuff Tarkin was appointed to mastermind the secret development project, though other stories have it that Raith Sienar was the superweapon's creator. Tarkin's creative work and thought resulted in the realization of the Death Star as the Empire's ultimate weapon.




Facilitating the Death Star's realspace propulsion were a network of powerful ion engines that transformed reactor power into needed thrust. In order for the Death Star to be a deadly threat, it needed to be mobile. Using linked banks of 123 hyperdrive field generators tied into a single navigational matrix, the Death Star could travel across the Galaxy at superluminal velocities. The incredible energies harnessed by the station combined with its great mass gave the Death Star magnetic and artificial gravitational fields equal to those found on orbital bodies many times greater in size.
The Death Star's superlaser derived power directly from the hypermatter reactor. Its faceted amplification crystal combined the destructive power of eight separate tributary beams into one single blast with the intensity of a stellar core. Though the energy output of this blast could be scaled to fire at smaller targets such as capital ships, as was the case during the Rebel assault on the second Death Star, the two major instances in which the superlaser was fired were at full power at planetary bodies.

My understanding would be that the engines were around the trenches in the death star.

The Death Star's main superlaser was actually composed of several powerful lasers which all shot at once, then merged togther at a precise focal point. Then the enormously powerful main laser which was formed would fire at its target. However, very accurate and precise calculations were needed, otherwise the firing could be skewed and one or more of the lasers might not merge with the focal point, thus lessening the power and debilitating the accuracy of the superlaser.

Yeah, as you can see in the Lego Death Star set, all the beams come together at one point, then go out as a single laser.

Where are the Death stars' engins? How does it move?

I am not sure where there are exactly. I think there is a engine room which propels the ship.

Yeah, the engines in back. Then there is a main reactor, which, you recall, the Rebels flew into the Death Star to destroy.

Well that is helpful. Thanks. Still, that thing must be slower that a bantha with a broken leg.
