I realise the inclusion of roleplaying elements adds an awkward dimension to an in-universe encyclopedia, but I'm sure we all also realise that much of these roleplaying elements are mechanical reflections of non-game material. And, as we already have the scoundrel article, it seems that some precedent has been set—so long as the title is mentioned in-universe. Which leads to my impetus for writing this. In Dark Forces: Rebel Agent, the character Rolanda Gron is described as a "technologist". Entertainingly, defines technologist as "a person who specializes in technology". I was therefore wondering whether we feel a technologist article would have a place here. I bring up the question here because it is entirely likely that the specific title is restricted to its appearance in Rebel Agent; is there a different title corresponding to "Tech Specialist" that appears more frequently in the Star Wars universe? -BaronGrackle 01:03, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Technical specialists working in the galactic fringe are referred to as "outlaw techs," and shipboard techs are called "engineers." Other than that, they're mostly called mechanics, I think. jSarek 01:52, 11 February 2007 (UTC)
    • I think "tech specialist" deserves its own article because it crosses over into KOTOR II, with Bao-Dur being that class. I also think "Force adept" deserves its own article, which I've been procrastinating on. Enochf 22:15, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
      • Do either use that term in-universe, though? jSarek 02:33, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
        • Does the name of a Star Wars Miniatures figure count (the Iktotchi Tech Specialist)? If not, perhaps we can slip it in with a "conjecture" tag? Upon inspection, it seems that we already have articles for Scout and even Noble, so something should probably be done one way or another. I'm inclusionist, myself. -BaronGrackle 15:25, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
