yt 1300

anonymous asked:

Approximately how long, with hyperdrive, would it take for a ship (let's say the Falcon) to get from the outer rim to Coruscant? Thank you, wise Jacen!

While travel time will vary quite a bit between ships and specific destinations, it would take approximately 48 hours for the Falcon to get from the Outer Rim to the Core Worlds (like Coruscant).

This chart (from this post) shows the base travel times between different regions of the galaxy. The post also has a map of the galaxy so you can see where the regions are, but I prefer to use this interactive map because you can click on different planets, sectors, regions, etc. and zoom in and out. It also shows hyperspace routes and the like.

To find the final travel time, you take the base time and multiply it by the hyperdrive rating of the ship (usually, you can find this on its Wookieepedia page). For example, a standard YT-1300 (hyperdrive class 2.0) would take about 96 x 2 = 192 hours to make the same journey. The Falcon has a hyperdrive rating of 0.5 due to various alterations; there are very few ships faster than this. The lower the rating, the faster the ship.

I also know of a website that shows a navicomputer and has you click on planets you want to travel between, enter the hyperdrive class and the skill of the pilot, and comes up with a travel time for you. However, the map is a bit outdated and uses a vastly different system of rating hyperdrives which I don’t know how to use. It’s here, in case you want to experiment, but I think you’ll have more luck finding the approximate time yourself.

I hope that helps!

SOUL MATE MASTERLIST


The sound of Kylo’s boots stomping against the cold metal ground of the First Order’s new base gave off a warning to those in a nearby radius. It was obvious he was one of those moods, each time his strides were rather swift and miscalculated, with the fact he had balled fists and a slight hunch in his back was a dead giveaway that something was wrong. Ever since his return, he hadn’t spoken a single word to Phasma nor Hux–aside from that slight interaction early. Hux was well aware of Kylo’s change in demeanor, along with the fact that he had actually been in his quarters for longer than an hour like he usually had. There was something up and Hux was afraid it had been about that girl, Kylo had only feared that maybe the General was the reason why Snoke had sensed something off about Kylo. After all, not even the Supreme Leader could read his own pupil that easily.

THE NEW LIGHTSABER IS NOT CRAZY

THIS IS TO ADDRESS EVERYONE WHO’S COMPLAINING ABOUT THE STAR WARS TEASER AND THE NEW LIGHTSABER. SO LISTEN UP YOU STUCK UP, HALF-WITTED, SCRUFFY-LOOKING NERF-HERDERS BECAUSE AMATEUR HOUR IS OVER AND I’M ABOUT TO DROP SOME SERIOUS NERD FLOWS.

*ahem*

Some background: 

Most Sith lightsabers were constructed with an artificial synthetic crystal, aka: synth-crystal.

Since these crystals were man made, they could easily be made wrong. Which makes them highly unstable. This exchanged blade control for stronger cutting power.

If you’ve played The Force Unleashed, then you should know of unstable crystals and how they flicker and look more jagged and chunky.

As for the design itself, this is not the craziest lightsaber ever conceived. Darth Nihl’s lightsaber consisted of a standard length blade and an extra long hilt. Not exactly conventional is it?

“But Rishi,” I hear you say, “The design of the handle doesn’t matter as long as the blade remains the same.”

WRONG. A HEAVIER AND LONGER HANDLE WOULD OBVIOUSLY CHANGE HOW YOU HANDLE THE SABER ITSELF. THE LENGTH, WEIGHT AND DESIGN OF THE HANDLE ALL HAVE AN EFFECT ON HOW YOU FIGHT. 

And let’s not forget the Saberstaff. Wielded by one of the coolest yet short-lived villains ever: 

“But Rishi,” you say again through my pointless rant, “Darth Maul’s double-bladed lightsaber is not that unconventional. A lot of people have used one.”

I FUCKING KNOW. BUT WHAT I’M GETTING AT IS THAT IT’S DIFFERENT FROM THE NORM. BUT IF THAT’S NOT ENOUGH, CHECK OUT EXAR KUN’S LIGHTSABER: 

A standard saberstaff right? 
 
WRONG.

His lightsaber was double ended yes, BUT IT ALSO HAD AN AVERAGE LENGTH  HANDLE UNLIKE THOSE OF DARTH MAUL AND OTHER DOUBLE ENDED BAD ASSES LIKE SATELE SHAN. IMAGINE CONSTANTLY TWIRLING THAT SHIT ABOVE YOUR HEAD WITH ONLY ONE HAND. FWI LIGHTSABERS ARE GOD DAMN HEAVY.

But I’m sure you wanna talk about blades and not the handle itself at this point. Alright. I’m game. 

How about Githany’s infamous lightwhip? 

Not exactly a conventional ‘blade’ now is it?

It was also wielded by a person by the name of Lumiya, who basically had a cat o’ nine tails version of it:

“But what if he/she cuts his wrist off with one of the lightsaber crossguards?" 

BITCH YOU THINK A JEDI WOULD EVEN CONSIDER WIELDING THAT THING IN BATTLE WITHOUT MASTERING EVERY ASPECT OF IT FIRST? DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH TRAINING AND PRACTICE IT TAKES TO WIELD EVEN A NORMAL LIGHTSABER?

IMAGINE WIELDING A STRING OF PLASMA, LET ALONE SEVERAL, FLOPPING AROUND IN EVERY WHICH DIRECTION. THAT TAKES SOME SERIOUS SKILL. SO MUCH SO THAT LUKE MOTHERFUCKING SKYWALKER EVEN HAD TROUBLE WITH IT AND HAD TO BUILD A SHOTO LIGHTSABER (basically just a shorter lightsaber) TO DEFEAT LUMIYA: 

Any more questions before we continue?

"But the smaller side blades have no purpose. If a lightsaber hits the base of the side blades, it’ll just cut right through.”

WRONG AGAIN.

There exist several materials that can withstand lightsaber strikes. Such as cortosis, which only lasts for a few slashes. A lightsaber would eventually make it through. And Mandalorian Iron. This shit will block a lightsaber indefinitely. There are a handful more. The list isn’t long, but my point is that there are things that a lightsaber cannot cut through.  

“Then why don’t they make armor or ships out of Mandalorian Iron or these other materials?" 

I WAS GETTING TO THAT. THEY’RE RARE AS FUCK. FORGET CRAFTING FULL BODY ARMOR LET ALONE AN ENTIRE SHIP WITH THAT STUFF.

But a lightsaber handle, or even just the bases of the smaller horizontal blades would be easy to find enough Mandalorian Iron for.  

Now let’s finally move onto the trailer. I’m gonna say that J.J. Abrams’ attention to detail is absolutely amazing. Let’s look at the famous controversial lightsaber shall we?  

Look at the way lightning arcs off of it and how jagged and chunky it is. Very much like the screen shot of The Force Unleashed, no? It even sounds different from a conventional lightsaber. If you’ve seen the trailer, you know how it sparks and crackles. 

Or what about the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy? 

See the new square radar dish? Remember how the old round one got knocked off in Return of the Jedi? 

The details don’t stop there. The new X-wings?

Pay attention to their wings:

And how they’re different from the T-65’s we’ve grown to love. This clearly hints at a heavily upgraded version. 

Same with the TIE Fighters. The original:

And the new. Notice how the color palette is completely reversed. Again, hinting at a major overhaul.

IN CONCLUSION, THIS TEASER WAS AMAZING AND ALL THE CHANGES EVERYONE IS COMPLAINING ABOUT ARE TOTALLY FAIR AND MAKE SENSE. BUT HEY, WE ALL KNOW YOU’RE GONNA GO SEE THE MOVIE ANYWAY. I’M FUCKING EXCITED AND YOU SHOULD BE TOO. 

THANK FOR TIME.

BTW - had a bit of a crazy plotbunny lately; I thought you might find it amusing, so - ObiAniDala OT3 soulmates! With the generic trophe of your soulmate's first words to you marked on one's skin. Bit of a dark!fic idea, though, so be warned - it's an OT3 in a wildly different universe where the Purges were moved up, and Lord and Lady Vader have never managed to locate their Third, the one who's words are inscribed across their skin. (cont)

(cont) Only in this case, Obi-Wan is one of the few Jedi remaining, with an existence that is equal parts running and hiding - it’s been so *long* since he felt remotely safe, and he’s worn to the bone. He’s never found his matches - the two people that he’s irrevokably bound to, and he’s not sure he wants to anymore - after all, what could he possibly offer them? Only then - only then he get captured by the Empire. Except the officers overseeing his ‘processing’ catch a glimpse of his (cont)

(cont) see his soul-marks, and one of them if high up enough to *recognize* Lord Vader’s handwriting - Obi-Wan quickly becomes Somebody Else’s Problem as he’s bounced up the chain of command until, tired, confused, and just too *fatigued* to feel fear, he’s standing in front of Lord Vader himself. Only Lord Vader speaks. “Mine”. And Lady Vader smiles, gently correcting her husband - “Ours”. And Obi-Wan can only gape at them, feeling his life crack and crumble around him for the second time.

(Um. The idea is that in that ‘verse, the Purges were moved up and Obi-Wan never met Anakin and Padme. Sorry for the confusion!)  

So you sent me these ages ago and I thought to myself, “oh, I can write that!” Only apparently I was being optimistic because this has been stuck in ‘development hell’, as you might call it, for a really really long time. I finally got it somewhat finished, though, so here it is! I picked stuff up from the snippets you wrote as well. (Fair warning: I proofread this tonight while really sick, so there may be errors. In the end I just wanted to post it xD).


build a heart made of armour

Kolyaa is a world with far too much rain for Obi-Wan’s taste. He has hated every moment spent here.

But that doesn’t matter now. It’s time to move on again.

He doesn’t run when the first stormtroopers appear, as he knows some fugitives do. He’d be living out in Wild Space if that were the case. But when they get too thick on the ground, when they start building official garrisons, when they begin to enforce taxes and patrol the roads, then he knows it’s time to move on.

Trouble is, there aren’t many planets left in galaxy where the Empire doesn’t have a presence, these days.

Pica responde: Star Wars

Hola, genial el ultimo post de los soldados de asalto. A ver si puedes contestar a estas pregunta. Podría buscarlo por internet pero tus textos son muchos más divertidos.
- porque conde dooku es conde y no darth.
- en la pelicula hace referencia a una carrera donde el halcón la hizo en no se cuanto “pasert” o algo a si. Podría explicar algo de ello. Y que es eso de “pasert”
- podrías explicar de una forma mas pausada quien mando hacer a los clones.
Prefiero a que contestes una y enrollándote mucho a que me contestes las 3 cortamente.

Un saludo y gracias por el entretenimiento

@lahuevera


Pues muchas gracias, nunca me voy a acostumbrar, de verdad te lo digo mi arma me sacáis siempre la sonrisilla y me llena de orgullo y satisfacción poder echaros una mano en algo tan tonto como esto.

Jajajajaj y no te preocupes yo te contesto a todo, eso sí, lamentablemente las preguntas tienen respuestas no muy largas pero algo podremos hacer.

CONDE DOOKU

- Éste no es nuestro camino. Los condes de Serenno no se quejan ni lloran. Hemos nacido para cuidar de los demás. No esperamos que otros se hagan cargo de nosotros.

El título de Conde procede de su planeta natal, Serenno, uno de los planetas industriales más ricos de la galaxia, el título conlevaba gran poder y riquezas así como enormes redes de información e influencia a nivel galáctico, pero al ser reclutado por los Jedi, todo eso desapareció.

(Mansión de Dooku en Serenno)

Dooku estuvo aproximadamente 70 años al servicio de los Jedi, trabajando de forma activa con la Orden (llegó a rechazar un puesto en el Consejo aduciendo que de aceptarlo, perdería de vista los problemas reales de la galaxia), entrenó a dos padawan, Qui-Gon Jinn y Komari Vosa (no llegó a convertirse en caballero por recomendación del propio Dooku que veía mucho conflicto en ella) y fue alabado como uno de los epítomes de los Jedi en su tiempo. Sin embargo, tras los conflictos acaecidos en Baltizaaar y Galidraan, Dooku se sentía cada vez más alejado de la Orden Jedi, estaba desencantado y abandonó formalmente la Orden, pasando a formar parte de Los Perdidos, una serie de veinte Jedi que abandonaron la Orden por conflictos ideológicos con la misma y a los cuáles se les rendía homenaje en la biblioteca del templo con bustos de sus rostros para recordar el fallo de la Orden.

(Busto de Dooku junto a Jocasta Nu, la bibliotecaria del templo Jedi y Obi-Wan Kenobi)

Una vez abandonó la Orden, y desencantado con la misma, Dooku trató de meditar y retirarse en paz, sin embargo, la inacción del Senado y la Orden tras la muerte de su antiguo aprendiz Qui-Gon a manos de un Lord Sith y otros conflictos, tensó aún más las relaciones entre la Orden y Dooku, lo cuál provocó que Palpatine utilizara sus melífluas palabras y convenció al ex-Jedi de unirse a él para formar parte de un cambio galáctico real.

Así, Dooku reclamó su herencia, el título de Conde y todo lo que este conllevaba y a su vez, fue bautizado por Sidious como Darth Tyranus.

CREACIÓN DEL EJÉRCITO CLON

Éste señor es Syfo-Dyas, miembro de la Orden Jedi, amigo personal de Dooku que destacó por sus habilidades de precognición.

Tanto es así, que Syfo-Dyas aventuró la llegada de tiempos oscuros en los que la República necesitarían más ayuda de la que pudieran otorgarle los Jedi.
Esta inquietud y tirantez con las prácticas inculcadas por el Consejo Jedi, ya le habían colocado en el punto de mira de Darth Sidious, una vez éste perdió a su aprendiz, y con poco tiempo para formar a otro desde cero, por lo que trató no solo de seducir a Dooku al Lado Oscuro si no también a Syfo-Dyas.

Sin embargo, las dudas de éste no eran tan acuciantes ni su enfrentamiento con la Orden de la magnitud que Sidious y Dooku (ahora también conocido como Darth Tyranus en secreto) pensaban, por lo que finalmente fue asesinado en combate por su viejo amigo, y su cuerpo congelado y conservado (una cuestión a matacaballo entre la culpa y la necesidad). Cuestión que vendría MUY bien al usar la sangre del mismo (poderosa en la Fuerza), para salvar al señor de la guerra Qymaen jai Sheelal, lo que junto a unos implantecillos de nada dieron lugar al cyborg y señor de la guerra definitivo Grievous años más tarde (por cierto, el primer sable láser que tiene Grievous se lo da el propio Dooku, siendo éste el de su asesinado difunto amigo).


Pero volvamos a la parte en la que Dooku se lo carga. Pues eso, que una vez éste señor la palma, no era extraño que los Jedi desaparecieran por la galaxia realiozando misiones, y menos uno con las inquietudes de Syfo-Dyas, por lo que Dooku, bajo la tutela de Darth Sidious marchó a Kamino y encargó el ejército clon bajo el nombre de su antiguo amigo, para tratar de evitar sospechas.

De hecho, que alguien como él hubiera realizado dicha acción resultaría menos sospechoso debido a las ansias independientes y aventureras del Jedi, aún con la desaprobación del Consejo, y por otro lado, desviaba totalmente la atención tanto de Dooku como de Palpatine.

EL CORREDOR DE KESSEL


- ¿Una nave rápida? ¿No habéis oído hablar del Halcón Milenario?
- ¿Teníamos que haber oído hablar?
- Es la nave que hizo la carrera Kessel en menos de 12 parasegundos.

A muchas personas es probable que se les caiga el mito del Halcón Milenario, otras muchas ya lo sabrían y otras seguirán pensando que es el trozo de chatarra más rápido de la galaxia (entre los que me incluyo).

La palabra correcta es pársec, no pasert ni parasegundo (como se tradujo al español originalmente y uno de los motivos por los que ha llevado a tanta confusión, aunque también en inglés al ser sec una abreviatura de la palabra second).

El pársec o parsec (símbolo pc) es una unidad de longitud utilizada en astronomía.En sentido estricto pársec se define como la distancia a la que una unidad astronómica (ua) subtiende un ángulo de un segundo de arco.

Ya está, solucionado el problema, los pársecs son una medida de distancia, no de tiempo. Por lo tanto, el Halcón no es que sea especialmente rápido, si no que sabe tomar atajos.

M’esplico:

Éste es el corredor de Kessel, una ruta de 18 pársecs utilizada por contrabandistas para sacar especia brillestim destrangis sin que los controles imperiales pudieran hacer nada.

El problema y la dificultad del Corredor de Kessel radicaba en que, para evitar las patrullas imperiales, había que pasar cerca de Las Fauces, un inestable cúmulo de agujeros negros que dificultaba tremendamente la navegación, y que obligaba a salir del hiperespacio para poder pilotar por la zona conocida como El Pozo, una peligrosísima zona del espacio repleta de asteroides, pero obviamente más transitable que Las Fauces.

Por tanto, la fanfarronada de Han no es que fuera capaz de hacerlo muy rápido (de hecho Obi-Wan sabe que les están lanzando un farol), si no que gracias a su computadora de navegación y sus cojones como melones, pudo tomar un atajo peligrosísimo y salir de una pieza con su carga.

ESO es hacer el Corredor/Carrera de Kessel en menos de 12 pársecs (11′5 de hecho).


Como dato añadido y para congraciarme con los descreídos, mencionar que las naves en Star Wars, tienen como máximo un hiperimpulsor a x1 (siendo superior en naves mucho más grandes, siendo éste a x2, x4 o x15 incluso con los hiperimpulsores de reserva). Pero el Halcón tiene uno de x0′5, así que sí, es la puñetera nave más rápida de la galaxia, que no solo vence a cruceros pesados imperiales, si no a las naves de tipo Corellia. ¡BOOM!

Espero haber respondido a tus preguntas, gracias por hacerme feliz respondiendo a estas cosas y que la Fuerza te acompañe caballero.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens #2

Publisher: Marvel Comics
(W) Chuck Wendig (A) Luke Ross (CA) Mike Mayhew, Chris Samnee

The saga continues! Desert scavenger Rey and ex-stormtrooper Finn are being pursued by the evil First Order! But can they escape Jakku in an old “hunk of junk” YT-1300 freighter? And what new threats will they find in a galaxy far, far away? 

(Release date: 27th July 2016)

101 Droidmations: Finn is a former code writer for the First Order who decides to break free of the stiflingly boring job and freelance while traveling the galaxy in a refurbished YT-1300 freighter. His constant companion is a BB droid who tires of the solitary life and looks to find Finn - and themselves - a mate. 

Enter Rey, a speeder mechanic on the desert world of Jakku who lives a lonely life with a BB-model droid of her own. One day, Finn arrives on Jakku to get some needed repairs to his craft and his BB droid spots Rey and her droid and sparks fly - literally, when the refueling station explodes. Rey decides she’s had enough of Jakku and asks Finn for a lift to the outer rim. Along the way, they and their droids fall in love and they decide to settle on the rebuilt Hosnian Prime where they settle into married bliss and their droids create a life of their own.

Meanwhile, Finn’s ex-boss, the wealthy and evil Kylo Ren, hears of the creation of a third BB unit and travels to Hosnian Prime to offer to buy the droids, which Finn and Rey refuse much to Ren’s humiliation. Ren is not the type to take no for an answer, and along with his henchmen Nines and Zeroes, he plots to steal the droid family and get his revenge on Finn and Rey for once and for all.

The Scoundrel and the Thief (Part 1)

Summary/backstory: You are a street kid, born and raised on the smuggler’s moon, Nar Shaddaa. Your days are spent pickpocketing, conning, and occasionally gambling with your small group of “friends”. You’ve been dreaming of getting off this rock ever since you were old enough to fly. When your so called friends challenge you to the most stupid dare in the galaxy, you naturally can’t resist, but you just might get more than you bargained for.

Mild Star Wars Spoilers

So here’s the thing, if you’re going to ship Reylo (Kylo Rey? Kylo Ren x Rey? Idek), please, at least do so in a way that is true and respectful to the characters. Don’t give me some 50 Shades bullshit where Rey enjoys being physically and mentally tortured and finds it a kink. Don’t devolve her character to someone whose only purpose in the ‘ship is to ‘fix’ him, who can forgive the torture and his sins easily, who falls for him as instant as he takes his mask off. Don’t give me emo trash about two tortured souls who slip into darkness together. Don’t make her a creature at his mercy who, even worse, enjoys it!

Give me independent Rey, who condemns his actions, who hates him for them, or pities him, until he gives her reason not to; who focuses on her training and the tasks at hand rather than pining or spending most her time wondering about him. Give me redemption Kylo, struggling with his choices and decisions, who /regrets/ and knows deep down the wrongs of his actions, but who strives for power and respect, who comes to revelations about his behaviour, who doesn’t make weak excuses for it all. Give me the Kylo who was intrigued by 'the girl from Jakku’, who herself almost seems legendary. Give me the Rey who has purpose and determination, hope and loyalty, and who knows how to fly and fix a Corellian YT-1300 light freighter she found in a junk yard.

Give me Rey who won’t put up with Kylo’s outbursts of rage and destruction, who would fold her arms and raise a brow in an 'are you done yet’ way, making him look like the rebellious temper tantrum teen he is.

Give me consequences, like Kylo haunted by her nightmares because he dared to force his way into her mind, Storm Troopers who don’t respect him because he implied the use of rape (physically and mentally) in his torture techniques.

Give him chances to /earn/ her respect, her forgiveness and to learn about each other.

Give him a chance to grow up and grow beyond these behaviours, knowing they were wrong.

Give me a hero/villain arch nemesis arc, where they are reluctant to kill one another, where they are aware of a greater destiny, and where things aren’t as black and white as good and evil, but where things are not forgiven and forgotten so easily. Where 'I could teach you’ is just as easily countered with 'you could leave this path’, while the strength and resolve of their fight remains.

Give me a slow burn, where changes in character and relationship are gradual. Give me them forced to team for survival, neither quite trusting the other, fingers forever ghosting over sabres as they argue about rights and wrongs.


Give me all of these things and more…

But most of all give me a 'ship which is well rounded and not based on sexualising non-consent, torture and abuse of both mental and physical aspects. Do not give me a 'ship where these things are easily excusable and forgiven because of an instant 'connection’, and do not give me a ship where either character is cheapened to make way for lust and 'love’.
