Does anyone know the general rule regarding holographic technology? Cos in Category:Holographic technology on the site there is a hologym, which would presumably use solid obstacles (otherwise its use is greatly reduced - think like a holodeck or the EMH for all you Star Trek fans); yet simultaneously, in Legacy of the Force: Exile, Admiral Limpan calls for a sitrep of Commenorian and Bothan forces breaking the Corellian blockade, it says that she is standing in the middle of the hologram.
Can anyone provide answers??
My guess: Inconsistent use across a broad range of stories. LFL licenses dozens of authors for multiple projects; therefore, there's a good chance that small inconsistencies will slip through the cracks. --School of Thrawn 101 10:44, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
I would say: no. If there is anything that depicts holos as being solid, it's probably a mistake. Unit 8311 11:49, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
I assume that with a hologym, if an AI kept track of the actions of the real participants, it wouldn't be beyond SW tech level to have interactive holograms which adjusted to their actions, making the experience every bit as good as one with real people (sans physical presence).

While the hologym may not be explicitly solid, the projections experienced at Hologram Fun World are. Presumably, there are additional technologies at work to give solidity, either illusory or real, to so-called holograms, as the majority are indeed not solid (nor should they be). jSarek 09:21, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
