Lightsabers by Chris000 Lightsabers by Chris000
My little tribute to the series! I always thought they were badassery, but they have a surprising history behind it. The first lightsabers were merely for ceremonial purposes, as they had to be plugged in and overheated quickly, but soon, power sources were smaller and they could be recharged when they were turned off.

The implimentation of a double blade by the fallen Jedi Exar Kun during the Great Sith War brought new forms of combat to the galaxy. Two blades for the price of one!

The multiple forms from the Shii Cho to the Makashi to the Vapaad created by Mace Windu turn lightsaber combat into an art and ballet as much as actual fighting.

The Lightsaber might be scoffed at by strangers to the series, but they will always be central to the storyline. We know it, we love it, and it will always be there for us!

There is no emotion, there is peace
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge
There is no passion, there is serenity
There is no death, there is the Force

25,000 BBY, not 15,500 BBY...

I'm basing this after the 'Modern' lightsaber's creation in 15,500 BBY which were much more widely used than the protosaber in 25,000 BBY. This was the time when it was a true lightsaber due to the fact that it was a reciprocating energy current, which is used by contemporary sabers, minus the belt-mounted power packs.

That Barrett M107, or any ballistic weapon can beat an opponent with a lightsaber. Here's how:

As you fire a bullet into either the wielder's face, or a lightly-covered part of his/her body the wielder will naturally bring the lightsaber forward to intercept the bullet, like a blaster bolt. Unlike a blaster bolt that bounces off though, the bullet will go into the plasma, melt, and spray the wielder with molten lead and copper. Obviously, this will be a great distraction, if only for a second, in which you can shoot another place on the wielder's body without the lightsaber interfering.

Game over, technology older than the lightsaber wins.

actually they do have real life guns, there know as slugthrowers and jedi lightsabers can deflect them but the heat they produce is so high it just instantly vapes the bullets but its good to use a slugthrower as you don't have to worry about the shots comeing back right at ya

Peace is a lie there is only Passion.
Through Passion I gain Strength.
Through Strength I gain Power.
Through Power I gain Victory.
Through Victory my chains are broken.
The Force shall set me free..

Your vaunted Sith Code has destroyed many lives.

Destroyed is such a pessimistic word..
It has weeded out all but those with true passion for the Force, true strength in it, true power amongst the few, true victory even in death.
