Well, this hunk of junk finally has an image. My first article edited. Constructive criticism would be nice, as I'm still new at this, and would like to learn how to get better. Dewback rancher 17:40, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Hi, Dewback Rancher! You know me from the Forums. Incidentally, thank you so much for finally getting us a kinetite image. Great panel, too, incidentally. However, I'm just going to adjust the article for factual accuracy per one of Pablo Hidalgo's Q. and A. columns: turns out the kinetite, despite its resemblence to Force lightning, is actually a mechanically generated power. In any case, thanks for ameliorating the article with the picture! Grand Admiral Sean8 22:32, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Kinetite Vs. LightningEdit

Looks like authors are messing with the universe again. The Rise and Fall of Darth Vader now names this as, and I quote "Force energized lightning," and says that Vader was able to summon it due to his close proximity to the Kaiburr crystal. Now what? Does the interview take precedence over a C-canon novel? In any case, at least there's little debate about it being a Force power anymore... Din's Fire 997 03:04, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

Either way, I can't believe they removed the image... seriously, whether it's screwed up or not, it's the only image of kinetite we have- it NEEDS to be in the article, right? I STILL can't believe that the FIRST time I put it up, it was under Force Destruction and not here. Dewback rancher 19:40, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Well, looks like The Rise and Fall of Darth Vader has been overruled on its attempted retcon- or at least, it tries to reconcile the two accounts. The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force (real-life book) states that Kinetite is a variant of Electric Justice/Emerald Lightning, but is a separate power (it even uses the Kinetite name and keeps the 'restrained sphere of pure kinetic energy' description), and an annotation by Luke Skywalker specifies that this is what Vader used on Mimban. Page 134 for reference. So, can we keep this article or what? Dewback rancher 21:54, October 19, 2010 (UTC)

Response Edit

It doesnt matter. Splinter of the Minds Eye trumps the Rise and Fall of Darth Vader in terms of canonocity. Im changing the page.Darth Grieve 04:58, May 3, 2011 (UTC)

Sek'nos Rath and Shaak Ti Edit

In Dawn of the Jedi: Force Storm and The Force Unleashed comic, it looks like Sek'nos Rath and Shaak Ti, respectively, each use this ability, though it wasn't named as such (Sek'nos just called his balls of lightning, Shaak Ti's was unnamed). Should this be added on the page? ZeroSD (talk) 06:56, October 19, 2014 (UTC)
