Er... a megajoule is 1000 joules in Star Wars? Could someone check that? 03:16, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

What is this nonsense that the metric system is based off earth measurements? The system was redefined to be based off the 5 constants since 1983. Meter is based off the speed of light in a vacuum and thus will be constant where ever one goes. Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

A meter is the distance light moves in an arbitrary fraction of an arbitrary time period, as defined on Earth. The speed of light may be a physical constant, but 1 second, meter, kilo gram, etc. are entirely human constructs. 21:39, February 18, 2016 (UTC)

Recent changes Edit

Someone changed the standard week from 5 days to 7, and the standard year from 368 to 365 days. They are both incorrect if I'm not mistaken. Fank 11:56, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

  • I have reverted this erroneous information. The user was assuming that their year is identical to Earth's. -- Riffsyphon1024 22:36, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Joule = Erg Edit

It always bothered me on Star Wars that the output of weapons on screen seems to be in the terajoule range, but is quoted in literature as being in billions of tons of TNT... either a ton is a lot smaller in SW or a joule is the term in Galactic Standard for an Erg. Food for thought! :-) 21:41, February 18, 2016 (UTC)
