Exactly what I was thinking. If it's that convincing and it's portable... that seems pretty advanced for Star Wars hologram technology.

This game takes place 3000 years before the movies.

If you go a little further into the timeline, about 1000 years before the movies, there was a galaxy wide war between Dark Jedi who had taken up Sith Teachings and the Republic that spanned for centuries that essentially pushed the entire galaxy into a dark age where much of their technology was lost.

There is technology in plane sight in Star Wars that nobody even understands how it works anymore because it was made by some civilization that no longer exists, but it still functions. Star Wars is full things like that.

Jiindo, Power Tech, Level 27, Squadron 367

In addition, the technology shows up (briefly) in other classline quests. And earlier on in agent quests. (Hello Tattooine! And Watcher One!)

Holograms projected by the Holo-coms are used to communicate instantly across the galaxy, maybe have they don't ADSL (SW version) and are stuck to low debit.
