Jedi and Bene Gesserit - Coconut Ent - June 28th, 2012

Supposing they had a student exchange program? What would they like to learn from each other?

Jedi (women) would be curious about the Spice Agony and Other Memory I suppose. The power of "Voice"... redundant, when you have the Jedi Mind Trick.

But where would this leave Jedi men?

A Mentat Jedi sounds awesome, except you already have droids galore in the galaxy, making Mentats a bit redundant.



Bene Gesserits would sniff and mutter about lightsabers and pocket them anyway. They might be curious about Force Ghost techniques to consult their male ancestry and supplement the female-line-only Other Memory.

Bellonda would invite Master Yoda for tea... and try to sexually Imprint him. Yoda escapes, mentally unaffected but a bit dishevelled. (when 800 years old you reach, immune to sexual seduction you become Smile )

Mentats are adaptations to the fact of the Butlerian Jihad that had eliminated computers, droids, & suchlike. I should think visitors from the Dune universe to the Star Wars' milieu would have to get over a lot of superstitious horror. (Unless they were Tleilaxu or suchlike!)
Combining Mentat with almost any kind of people you could imagine, from Tolkien Eldar (Elrond?) to Star Trek Vulcans, would have interesting possibilities.
Yoda could be in for a surprise, tho. When 600 years since anybody's tried it's been, down your defenses might be...

B-G would be immune to superstitions, IMHO. They'd be curious how people adapt to sentient droids, although disdaining to have one.

I also believe they'd be immune to temptations from the Dark Side, rightly recognizing the dangerous self-delusion and loss of self-control.... unless a BG is overtaken by Abomination. A Baron Harkonnen Abomination Sith Dark Reverend Mother might make even Palpatine cower under his bed.

Especially if she tries to Imprint him. "He has such a lovely body." Wink

Of course, the big question in any SW/Dune crossover would be whether the Kwisatz Haderach can bring balance to the Force? Wink

I think it might be more productive to cross Highlander with Dune. "There can be only ONE Kwisatz Haderach, Feyd, and he shall not be YOU."

"I call that bold talk for a one-eyed fat man!"

Okay, maybe Dune with "True Grit".

Send a certain ghola to the Jedi Academy...

Jedi Mentat Swordmaster Duncan Idaho!

Awesome.

Not to mention, a stud in bed! Smile
