Atris's handmaidens and sith assassins look like they're using quarterstaves, not force pikes. Force pikes have a narrow tip. --Linkman95 17:28, 26 June 2006 (UTC)
Were the Geonosians actually using Force pikes or where they using Static pikes? If it is the later then we should correct that and add a link to the static pike page, methinks. --beeurd 01:25, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
Central nervous system? Edit
If I could make a point, I'd like to say that the central nervous system controls things like your heart, lungs, and digestive tract. If pikes really overloaded it, the victim would die. 220.127.116.11 18:16, 16 December 2006 (UTC)Master Kentroid
- Not necessarily true weapons like stun-gun's and a taser's overload the central nervous system without killing, it all has to do with voltage (actualy amps) Voltage dose kill but by changing the amps you dont need to waste as much energy! - "Awar 10:26, 25 February 2007 (UTC)".
Ah, aha. I hadn't thought of that. Master Kentroid
- Sorry Darth, you're mixing up your electrical terms. Think of it like this: an electrical circuit is composed of moving electrons. Voltage is how fast the stream of electrons is moving, and amperage is how many electrons are actually getting there. Voltage is what decides how excitable and "fast" the electrons are going, but unless there are enough actual electrons moving (amps), nothing is going to happen.
Your average lightning bolt contains around 100-megavolts, more than any other single source on the planet, yet most people hit by lightning don't die. It's insanely energetic, so it'll happily jump from the ground to a tree, to the sky and back, but it doesn't often have the electron flow (ie, amps) to really kill. Compare this to a high-tension electrical wire, which despite having 10-times less voltage than a lightning bolt will generally instantly fry and ignite anything that completes a circuit due to it's insanely high amperage.
Tasers work by using high voltage (up to 50,000 volts) and very low amperage (just enough to affect the peripheral muscles). The result is that the high voltage ensures the amps get rapidly spread throughout the body in amounts low enough only to induce the muscle fibers to instantly contract. Most crappy stun guns don't do this, I might add...this is why a guy hit with a Taser will do the "stiff as a board" pose and fall over, regardless of where he's hit.
resident to lightsaberEdit
could the force pike resist a lightsaber or would they simply be cut in half User:Kami-Sama

KOTOR II image Edit
Can someone upload an image showing the kind of force pike available in Kotor II? It had two long ends and looked like an electrostaff but was a force pike. Cyfiero 03:30, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

- Wait, but that doesn't look canonical since the handmaidens aren't wearing their usual clothing and it must be a mod. Also, the force pikes aren't that clear. I meant, could someone upload an image of one the Exile's companions holding a force pike him or herself. Marco Lam (Contact) 04:03, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
