I LIKE this idea (except for the StormTroopers, who are too much of cannon-
fodder to be Sp. Priests). The Spelljammer paradigm needs to be a bit changed
for this to work, though. For example, spaceships in SJ tends to be a bit
on the big and expensive side, and that doesn't quite suit the Star Wars
universe with hundreds of fighters. But, I'll try to find the time to start
working on it.

Also, I think the Jedi would be best suited to Psionics:

* No mumbo-jumbo phrases, gestures or components.

* Seems based in belief in oneself.

* A lot of Jedi-like psionics can be found in both The Psi.Net.Handbook (old
version) and the DS.Net.Handbook.

That would leave the question of where to put the mages and priests. But, I'll
try to find time to work on it.
