Star Wars – Droid Data File
Droids – Mechanical life, despite being something of a contradiction in terms, is common throughout the galaxy. Droids have been utilized by countless planets and civilizations for centuries, perhaps longer, in order to make life easier. From simple labor droids that do little more than move cargo around to advanced medical droids that diagnose and treat the most serious injuries and diseases, the variety of droids in the galaxy is almost as diverse as the organic lifeforms they serve. Invariably, droids have found themselves involved on both sides of the Galactic Civil War in a number of different capacities.
The majority of droid models lack the capacity for independent thought. Only the most advanced models can achieve true sentience, and then only if their cerebral circuitry is allowed to develop for long periods of time without regular memory wipes. Droids are also divided by class, depending on their function. Class One droids are intended for medical use, and as such have extremely advanced brains. They are capable of quickly developing self-awareness if regular memory wipes are not employed. Class Two droids are intended for engineering and maintenance, and rarely have the capacity for meaningful communication with organic beings. These droids include the ubiquitous astromech droids popularized by the enormously successful R2 series. Class Three droids are designed primarily for interaction with organic beings, acting as servants, translators, or caregivers. Like Class One droids, they are quick to develop self-awareness. Class Four droids are designed for combat. As such, they are tightly restricted in terms of both creation and use. Class Five droids are the simplest droids of all, designed for physical labor in a number of different environments.
From Age of Rebellion
Medical droids see extensive use on both sides of the Galactic Civil War, though in different ways and for different reasons. Although expensive, medical droids cost less and are quicker to produce than organic doctors. The Empire employs them for this reason, and because less sophisticated droids can be counted upon to make critical decisions without permitting emotion to come into play. The Rebellion employs them because trained medics and physicians are in extremely short supply, and the more sophisticated medical droids can display not only significant expertise, but a bedside manner that promotes quick recovery for Alliance personnel.
From Edge of the Empire
Medical droids take a variety of forms, from simple attendant droids capable of dressing flesh wounds or diagnosing basic illnesses up to the elaborate and incredibly advanced surgical droids that can be found on military starships and major urban centers throughout the galaxy.
