Halagad: Indiana Jones in space? A novel I'd say is a long shot. Jocasta Nu was a Jedi explorer, though. Raiders of the Lost Holocron! Corellia Antilles and the Temple of Dromund Kaas! Corellia Antilles and the Last Ar'kai! The Young Corellia Antilles Chronicles! *Cough* Ahem. Sorry about that. The term Force-sensitive actually comes from Splinter of the Mind's Eye, though the question remains the same: is one born Force-sensitive, or more importantly non-Force-sensitive, or is everyone Force-sensitive, and thereby potentially Force-strong? Another possibility, the one suggested by the game mechanics of the two Star Wars roleplaying games, is that one can be born Force-sensitive, but one can also spontaneously develop Force sensitivity later in life. Training isn't even necessary, it seems: "When a character becomes Force-sensitive, they simply are suddenly in tune with the Force's mystic ways" (SWRPG2, p. 15). As long as we're discussing the implications of game mechanics for Force users, there's also the concept of "Force attunement" seen in the game mechanics of the old SWCCG; it's a sort of "middle ground" between true Force sensitivity and the complete lack of Force ability among the nameless masses. I'd venture to say that this "attunement" is what the Anzati sense when they find a non-Force-sensitive like Han Solo to have particularly enticing "soup." Connecting it with other game mechanics, I'd also say Force attunement is comparable to having a character with "the full 18d of attribute dice" in WEG's roleplaying game, or having one's first level in a Heroic class in WotC's game. Given the progression in the CCG, if such a state as "Force attunement" does exist outside of the mechanics of the CCG, it's probably a necessary first step for someone to gain that spontaneous sensitivity.
