    Default Does anybody remember this from a Canon or Legends Star Wars source?

    Does anybody remember from Legends or Canon in a situation where a character downright stated or implied that something couldnít be done scientifically? Here is a list of stuff Iíve gathered.

    1.) Cybernetic liver- In Lost Stars, it was said Cienaís liver could not be replaced as it was one of the few organs that couldnít have a substitute. [Canon]

    2.) Pill or injection to replace the need for water- This was mentioned in Tatooine Ghost by Han Solo [Legends]

    3.) Wormholes- Said in the Han Solo comic that scientists couldnít figure it out [Canon]

    4.) Telescopes that can see people (beings) on exoplanets- This was mentioned by Prince Isolder in Tyrants Test [Legends]

    5.) Matter transporter- Finn mentioned this didnít exist when they need to escape in the Force Awakens novelization. [Canon]

    6.) The Infinite Empire- Motti referred to it as (believe it or not) Science fiction [Legends]

    7. Food assembler- This is from MedStar as part of a future fic holodrama about a device that could assemble a meal from basic ingredients. Really weird since they have Food synthesizers [Legends]

    Time travel is possible- just rare.

    Sure! Here's a couple.

    This is my new favorite Star Wars trivia.


    4.) Telescopes that can see people (beings) on exoplanets- This was mentioned by Prince Isolder in Tyrants Test [Legends]
    This could just be an acknowledgement of real-world physics and the lack of any in-setting science or Force-voodoo to circumvent those physical limits.

    Did they define "food assembler?" Based on how complex droids can be, I am assuming that a cooking droid doesn't count since that would be trivial to make. I would guess that a "food assembler" might be something like a replicator, only instead of turning energy into an arbitrary object, it would take basic matter and manufacture arbitrarily complex meals on the spot.

    I don't know the explicit limits of a food synthesizer, but I always got the impression that it basically mashed sugar, carbs, proteins, etc. together a GoodRx bar worth of species-specific basic nutrition and seasoned it to not taste horrible. I guess the holy grail of space food in Star Wars would be a device that could take those sake basic components and create a nerf steak, or a replica of some fruit, given enough information.
