    Again, you are the writer.
    It's not like we don't want to help, but you are not asking for help, you are asking for ANSWERS, and we cannot know what is in your head, we just can't.

    Chaka said magnets, but in a broader sense, that's gravity. Perhaps your scientist can be working on the effects of creating artificial gravity wells and it's effects on hyperspace lanes and finds that by using interdictors, it alters the lanes themselves?
    What if one gravity well reduces speed, but he discovers by applying four or five, it actually increases speed by narrowing the hyperspace lane?
    It's relatively boring, but potentially a game changer.
    What you call that, that MUST be up to you.

    Thanks. Yes. I will consider this idea. Picking a name for it will be hard.

    Well now we have found something scientific sounding that YOUR scientist can work on, obviously your next question is to ask us all what you can call this research.

    Just magnets, of magnets research.

    I was asking for ideas on what a scientist could be working on in the Star Wars galaxy. However my list of can nots are more akin to what an engineer would be working on. Then I guess that’s what I really meant. So that being said I ask. What can an engineer in the Star Wars galaxy be working on?. He works for the canon New Republic.

    Things he can’t be working on

    1.) Dyson sphere- Believe it or not it already exists in SWTOR

    2.) Matrioksha Brain- Computers aren’t that advanced. (HOWEVER, if you have a genetic Star Wars name for this- I will take it. Matrioksha is Russian nesting dolls and would obviously not be applicable for Star Wars

    3.) A Giant Underground City- Sullust has tons of these.

    4.) Kransnikov Tube- Would be too much of a gamechanger for travel

    5.) Ford-Svaitar mirror- Too much of a gamechanger for travel

    6.) Nicoll-Dyson Laser- We already have the Death Star and Starkiller Base

    7.) Space elevator- They have those

    8.) Shellworld- Waste of time. Plenty of planets to work with

    9) Alderton Disk- Too big

    10.) Ringworld- Exists on Ringo Vinda

    11.) Underwater cities- Plenty of those

    12.) Any type of space habitat.

    Any ideas?

    I haven't seen transporters in Star Wars.

    This is one of my favorite movies of all time. A cult classic.

    The Rakata had teleportation devices. However, it’s too much of a gamechanger.

    Just because he’s working on a project or even on the verge of a breakthrough it doesn’t need to be useable. Even getting to the stage of successfully teleporting a microbe would be a massive achievement.

    I’m trying out many different avenues of Star Wars technology and I think the best bet is to go with droids. They are almost eponymous with Star Wars and I’m sure scientists are still working on stuff with droids. What can be done with droid technology that hasn’t already been done in Legends or Canon? They did a planet wide droid intelligence in The Force Unleashed that was able to possess PROXY, who he himself was a very unique droid. They also explored AI uprisings and droid free will many times. What can a scientist do with droids?

    April 3 you changed tack & wanted ideas for an Engineer, now you have gone back to a Scientist.

    Will that make him a Scientific Engineer?
