Okay, so I was having a conversation with someone when they said the following. After reading it, I'd like your opinion on how right this person is, and if he's not right, how. As a huge fan of both, this is bugging me.
HIM: Here's another thought - in the Star Wars EU, anything that is not touched by the Force cannot be killed with a lightsaber (because in the EU lighsabers are only possible because of the Force) or "Force pushed' etc. So in a Star Wars vs Star Trek crossover, all the Jedi powers would be useless against Captain Kirk!
ME: Why not? Isn't the force "all around us" and therefore in everyone? Including the Kirk?
HIS FRIEND: Woah bro!! Just woah!!! You're taking this to a whole new level of nerd!
ME: No, wait, this is serious. Why not???
HIM: Because midi-cholrians only exist in the Star Wars galaxy. Anything outside the galaxy does not have them, so there is no Force power.
HIM: The Force works like magnetism, if an object is not magnetic, there is no connection.
ME: Hmmmm. I'm gonna have to get back with you on this.
