Midi-chlorians - George Lucas and ‘Star Wars’: 7 of His Biggest MistakesMidi-chlorians

One of the key distinctions between Star Trek and Star Wars lies in the difference between science-fiction and science-fantasy. The former leans into the “science” side of things, attempting to explain even its more fantastical elements with some semblance of real-world logic. For the latter, there’s more room to move around, and less concern for the laws of physics, chemistry, and biology.

So when The Phantom Menace took the mystical power that governs the Jedi’s life philosophy and boiled it down to microscopic organisms in our blood, things felt a little … off. There was never any real need to explain how the Force worked outside of Obi Wan’s mystical reasoning in A New Hope, making the introduction of midi-chlorians an ill-fated left turn for the canon.
