A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far, Far Away… Eons before the creation of Earth, vast civilisations have evolved, and ruling the galaxy is an interstellar Empire created from the ruins of an Old Republic that held sway for generations.
With the up and coming release of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the epic space opera franchise has kicked started itself after a 10 year break, entering another cataclysmic battle of Light and Dark.
Thirty years after the Rebel Alliance's victory over the second Death Star, the galaxy is still at war. A New Republic has arisen, but the First Order has sprung from the ashes of the Galactic Empire. Many of the heroes of before, Leia Organa, Han Solo, Chewbacca, R2-D2 and C-3PO are all still alive and fighting in the Resistance.
With this data visualisation we explore the incredible skills of Force Sensitives, Jedi Master's and Sith Lords that populate the Star Wars universe. These skills are put into 1 of 3 categories 'Core', 'Light' and 'Dark' to easily represent their alignments and who they're used by.
