    For those of you that don't know latin, Terra means Earth and is probably what our system would be named if we ever go interstellar.

    I've recenty read a novel* that describes Atlantis of myth as this giant , zero-point-energy-powered machine that was built by our ancestors to protect our planet from gravity waves. It puts the date of construction of this machine at 12,000 years ago or so, and the machine is built out of a carbon-60 ("buckyball") alloy.
    Taking this further, if such technology existed, then our fictional ancestors could have had some form of interstellar transport and some of them would have opted for leaving Earth and chancing it out in the galaxy, instead of pouring all resources into a machine that might not have worked. (note: all fictional!)

    Which brings me to my second point. The map of the galaxy in NJO books has an entire quarter of the galaxy listed as '"Unknown Regions". Humans widely populate the Republic/Empire regions, but no home planet has been named. taking into consideration my previous paragraph, could the Terran system, the home planet of humans, be lurking in the Unknown Regions? And, as NR forces are pushed further back into these Regions, would they eventually discover Earth?

    Oh my god. This is what I was searching for. A way to bring Earth into the Star Wars universe. This is the history of one of my fanfics. This is perfect.

    Dude, this is just like what my friends and I came up with one night after a lot of drinking.



    We figured that Earth could be something of a long lost penal colony from about 20,000 years BBY. Basically, some people rose up against the Republic, maybe using the dark side of the Force. Anyway, they were exiled to Earth, but not before being genetically manipulated so that we couldn't access the Force. So we were sent to Earth, and left in isolations.

    But shortly after we were put here, something catastrophic happened, and the 5th planet, right past Mars, was destroyed. the debris totally decimated Mars' ecosystem, and took out most of the technology on Earth, centered around a place called Atlantis. The survivors were scattered, and began civilization all over again.

    The Republic, having detected the destruction of the 5th planet, assumed that all inhabitants of Earth had been killed, and we were forgotten.

    So, after millenia, the debris of 5th planet eventually formed the asteroid belt, and civilization grew out of the ashes. The pyramids, the Sphinx, all of it was created with long lost technology.

    As I said earlier, our genes were messed with, and we couldn't access the Force. But every now and then, the Force breaks through a little, and we make huge advances in literature, science, medicine, etc.

    We even went so far as to say that GL, as well as all of the SW authors, were inspired by the Force to create this story of SW.

    Now, 20,000 years later, the Vong are on the prowl, and it's only a matter of time before we are rediscovered.



    Like I said, we were drunk when we thought this stuff up, but boy is it fun to speculate. :p

    So it's possible the New Republic could come here and take us back to the GFFA? Or that the Vong could come here and obliterate us? Maybe Y2K was in anticipation of the Vong's arrival, but Czulkang Lah instead directed the Vong to the GFFA...

    Hooah. ;)

    You think anyone who wasn't drunk could come up with that? :p

    Well, if we are in the GFFA and VOng are preparing to invade that would explain bush...

    Yeah, it would, because if we were to be invaded, I'd want a Republican in the Oval Office. Kick ass! :D

    Both of my parents were in the Air Force, as were 2 of my uncles, and my grand father was in the Army Air Corp.

    My brother's going to join after college.



    Anyway, I'm liking the story so far.

    "It was all very much like an episode of Star Trek mixed with Flash Gordon and a dash of Dungeons and Dragons thrown in for good measure."

    At the risk of sounding incredibly stupid, what the puck is GFFA?!

    PS: just read 3 of a kind. Good fic, but if they'd just listened to me, they wouldn't have to've gone out of the galaxy! DUH!

    Sounds interesting. Maybe someday it'll actually happen. After all, most sci fi, no matter how far removed from Earth they may be at a given time, almost always go back to Earth in the end, at least figuratively if not literally.

    I came up with something similar, except we are the Yuuzhan Vong. We get into some huge civil war with technology (a la every recent Sci-fi movie that's not a sequel or prequel) (Terminator, Matrix, etc), the moon is destroyed, and we somehow genetically lose our noses. We learn shaping and set out among the stars.

    We come to another galaxy via a wormhole (for the long time ago part), etc. Read Vector Prime for the rest... :D

    Oh and I don't intoxicate myself in any way. (honest!)

    Oh, sorta, like the Butarlian Jihad from Dune.

    Interesting thought.


    But I don't wanna be a Vong.

    You won't. You'll be dead.

    Most likely.

    Well, all very interesting ideas! I like the idea about it all (star wars)actually happenning, many years ago, and Earth (Terra) somehow being part of it. It reminds of that saying (or whatever you may want to call it)...if you put a monkey in a room with a typewriter for an infinite amount of time, eventually the monkey with type out the entire bible (or fill in whatever religious or philosophical book here). So, with the thought of infinite time and infinite space, the whole star wars saga would have or will some day eventually happen. Yes, I know that this is a stretch, but as it's been said..."it sure is fun to speculate"!!!
