How in the heck can the residents of the SW universe possibly know about the theory of relativity? Adamwankenobi 18:54, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

  • But the article is not bad at all. I think we should keep it under any circumstances. Perhaps it's a little bit scientific as it is worded, but I like it. - TopAce 18:58, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
    • Bosbit Matarcher's backstory explicitly refers to relativistic effects. I suppose it was developed/discovered by someone on Corellia or Coruscant rather than Einstein in their galaxy. —Silly Dan (talk) 19:00, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
      • Hmmm. Perhaps that should be added to List of references to Earth in Star Wars if it is not already there. Adamwankenobi 19:02, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
        • I don't know, relativity is a basic scientific fact. That's like claiming things in the GFFA are red, just like on Earth, so we should add that. —Silly Dan (talk) 19:04, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
          • Not the concept, the name. Adamwankenobi 19:05, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
            • Oh, sorry, I see what you're getting at. I suspect it's just another case of simple translation, though. —Silly Dan (talk) 19:06, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
              • Well, wouldn't that list end up being too long, since nearly every word used to describe an object or idea in the SW universe is the same as ours? Adamwankenobi 19:10, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
                • Exactly. —Silly Dan (talk) 19:50, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
                  • Then perhaps we should remove things like Duck. Adamwankenobi 20:01, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
                    • There's a difference between "scientific things which work in Star Wars the same way they do here" and "creatures which are apparently exactly the same as Earth creatures." After all, if I went to another planet, I'd expect general and special relativity to work, but I'd be surprised to meet up with ducks, rabbits, Humans named Shawn, or spaceships called Halifax. —Silly Dan (talk) 20:11, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Technically the doppler effect can be heard by all passing vehicles in the movies. But does that mean that they accept that or recognize it as such? The explicit existence of an Earth exclusive idea, such as Theory of Relativity, would be categorized in the Suspension of Disbelief is Strained Dept. -- Riffsyphon1024 05:16, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
    • My Suspension of Disbelief is more strained by the idea that a civilization with 30+ millennia of interstellar travel under its belt hasn't discovered a universal principle that we Earthlings figured out before we even launched anything into space. And beyond the name, what about it is Earth-specific?--Valin Kenobi 21:06, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
      • It's only our humanocentric view of the universe. -- Riffsyphon1024 04:30, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Time Measures Edit

in the Clone Wars tv series, Season 3,episode 3: The Suply Lines, Bail Organa mentions the supplies are "only enough food for one, maybe two, rotations." I found it to be very self explanatory, given that each planet has it's own rotation time (Ryloth being the case), but I couldn't find any mentions of that anywhere else.

I fixed a bit of grammar here. "Cergl-units" would be plural, while "cergl-unit's" would be possessive.--Been L'toth (talk) 20:32, September 21, 2013 (UTC)User:Been L'toth
