Thanks. :) I'm happy to criticize the things Star Wars doesn't do well, like representing distance in space, and hyperdrives don't match up well with any hypothetical FTL I'm aware of (its acts somewhat similar to creating wormholes, but isn't quite consistent with them to my layman's knowledge, and the descriptions of how it works are pure nonsense - Star Trek's warp drive, OTOH, mimics an Alcubierre drive very well both in behavior and description), but the weapons fit well into actual science and are consistent in their use.

Yeah very true. Most of Star Wars science is pure bollocks, but they did have good explanations for weaponry at least. Sadly, when I try to discuss things like this with anyone else but folks on this forum I either get the glazed eyes or the lecture about how I sap all the fun from things.

I'll still give Star Wars flak for getting the names wrong, though getting them right would've made them sound even more nerdy.  Lasers, turbo lasers and blasters should be the ion cannons, since ions are charged atoms, while ion cannons seem to be electron cannons, given that they specifically overload electronics and result in electric discharges across the target.

Speaking of names...

Well technically plasma and Ion. Because it varies from sources

Probably the same one who brought ducks to the Star Wars universe (Episode IV novelization).

Have any specifically in mind?  Not doubting you, I just can't think of any time where a blaster acted like a plasma weapon.  Vong volcano cannons definitely did, spewing super-heated matter and all.

Edit: Huh, seems Poe's gun in the beginning of TFA was supposed to be a plasma blaster.  Fair enough.

Hey, hey, hey... what if in the Star Wars universe there is a series called "Earth"? :D
