I am a big fan of the 2000's Battlestar Galactica series and watching it had inspired me to want to write fan fiction set in that universe. I had never did it before but however, when I had finally sat down to try and write something a while back I just couldn't start for a number of reasons. The most important one is that the writing of the TV series is so good that even though I'm only writing for fun, there is no way I could compete with it's brilliance and I was just too intimated to go any further. I've just watched the new Star Wars film and revisited the recent ones and the thought occurred to me to possibly write some Star Wars fan-fiction using the ideas and themes I had at the time when contemplating writing BSG fan-fiction. It sounds a good idea to me because they can be transferred to the Star Wars Universe and because the SW Universe is open ended and a lot of world building has already been done, hopefully I should easily slot in what I want to write without too much continuity errors. The stuff from BSG that I liked and I wanted to write about was politics and military aspects of the series and there are a lot of elements in the Star Wars universe that can be covered by that. With the political side of the SW universe, I am not really interested in the 'big picture' of the mighty clashes between the Republic and the Empire. I find minor politics just as fascinating as well the 'office politics' of the various factions as seen by Krennic and Tarkin in Rogue one. There is plenty of scope to be able to write there within the confines of established political events in the SWU. In terms of military, that is a bit harder as there is so much to take in with the SW universe, particularly with the various military units/branches of both the Empire and the Rebel alliance which I will need to research to see how I can slot my ideas into them. Is there any links that can give in-depth detail of the SW military?
