Also, maybe Iīm getting a little too X-Men here, but how about mini lightsabers that attach to your fingers - basically like having little lightsaber claws.
I donīt know...just my ideas...
Yeah, Iv'e seen that weapon a few times in the comics as well as novels. I just wonder how in a galaxy far, far away you would be able to get laser energy to do that. Hell, laser swords stretch the imagination but light whips!?
*sigh* I must surrender to the suspension of disbelief.
Light whips have actually been described two ways: as a pure energy beam that is flexible or as a malleable whip made of energy conducting material that when activated becomes surrounded by laser like energy.
Speaking of hand mounted lightsabers, I remember seeing a piece of concept art for Episode III where Plo Koon has a wrist mounded weapon similar to what you described HOP.
