"How Do The Frakking Things Work Anyhoo?"
In recent email conversations I've been having with some fans I've started to realise that perhaps I ought to have a set of pages, an area of Chrome if you will, that has some in-depth information on how the technologies of Star Wars work. As I see them, anyway. This is the root page of that project, and contains the index.
Please note that we're talking about a fictional universe and there may be areas where these technologies have significant fudge. Most of these systems rely on a Deus Ex Machina to some extent or the other and being fictional it would never be possible to give the 'truth' of the thing.
As a preface to the work, it might be an idea to discover the 'Fundamental Jack'.
Also be aware that this area is very much under construction. There are many pages which will require re-working and illustrating. Having said that I would appreciate getting feedback on any of these entries, both suggestions to tweak and improve them as well as identifying areas I need to improve to make them more understandable.
