Solar Ionization.... what is it?

Recommended Posts

Okay, as we've seen in various Star Wars books, video games, and other media, vessels in SW often use a type of power called "solar ionization".  But what IS this "solar ionization"?  And how can we reconcile it with what "Solo" showed us - that SW ships tend to have fusion cores as their main power supply?  Not to mention all that liquid fuel we see going into starships (which is what formed the basis of Jedi Master Spock's old "diesel fusion" theory).

 

Well, it seems I've found a solution that could answer all these problems.  Behold, CNO Fusion!
