Imperial Department of Military Research

For instructions on entering a project in the Imperial Department of Military Research, click here.

Designation: What your completed design will be called. This is not necessarily your project name. (for example, Project "Twin Ion Engine" may produce a design with the designation "TIE Fighter")

Purpose: State the purpose of what you are designing, why it should be designed, why you are designing it.

Application: State how your design is used.

Schedule: In Star Wars time, how long it will take to design. You may create the finished project the next minute in real life, however it may take longer to actually design it. The average schedule is from 1 week to 2 months. If you wish, you can reply to this message with a description of your progress on different days/weeks (based on your schedule) leading up to your prototype completion. When you are ready, reply again with all of the information on the prototype. This should be posted as a reply to the original message, and contain the following information:

Visual Description: Simply describe what the prototype looks like. A picture is appreciated but not required (except for vehicles, fighters and capital ships).

Technical Specifications: State all of the properties of your design, for example, if it is a fighter you should include its speed (MGLT), hull rating (RU), shield rating (SBD), weapons, etc. Also, if at all possible, indicate the Star Wars technology used in the prototype and for what purpose.

Weaknesses: Realistically, every design should have some.

Projected Upgrades: Self-explanatory. You have to ability to reply to this topic as many times as you wish to upgrade your design. Always reply, only one topic per project.

NIF Brand Chew-Chews

Designation: NIF branded Candie "Chew-Chews"

Purpose: To create a tasty snack by using a mixture of sugar, gum base, natural and artifical flavouring and a bit of food colouring.

Application: Mixing the sugar and gum base together and adding some of the flavouring into a tiny pill shaped mold, we can create small little tasty candies that will be chewy instead of hard (though we'll apply some heat to create a candy shell around the chewiness). We will then stamp the letter "K" onto each of them with a white edible ink in honour of the current Emperor, Emperor Kane. We then package them and sell them for public consumption.

By mixing the flavouring and the colours, we can create a whole prism effect of colours and flavours such as Corellian Sour Apple, Dathomirian Spice, Copabanana banana, Kuati Wine, etc. etc.

Schedule: Depending how long and creative we get with the flavouring, we could probably get a test batch made up in about a week. The rest of the schedule will depend entirely upon sourcing a company to mass produce the candies and what not.

Visual Description: Something like this...


Only with more colours and flavours and with the basic letter "K" instead of the strange character stamped onto these ones ;)

Technical Specifications: The following are all Per serving which is ~54 pieces or 2oz

Calories: 231
Calories from Fat: 22
Total Fat: 2.49g
Saturated Fat: 0.495g
Polyunsaturated Fat: 0.068g
Monounsaturated Fat: 1.687g
Cholesterol: 0g
Sodium: 9mg
Potassium: 5mg
Total Carbohydrate: 51.66g
Dietary Fiber: 0g
Sugars: 43.33g
Protein: 0.11g
Vitamin A: 0%
Vitamin C: 64%
Calcium: 0%
Iron: 0%
Zinc: 0%

Weaknesses: Without proper oral hygine, can lead to numerous oral problems like cavities and gingivitis. While consuming them can provide a quick burst in energy, consumption of too many could lead to a sugar rush and subsequent crash. Has no real nutritional value and, as such, should not be relied upon as the sole source of nutrition for the consumer.

Projected Upgrades: Provide nutritional value, perhaps by making a Chew-Chew using nutrient paste.

OOC: Jace asked for me to put Skittles into the SW universe ;) So here it is! This is loosely based off both skittles and jelly bellies!
