Droid (Star Wars)

Robot in the "Star Wars" franchise

A droid is a fictional robot possessing some degree of artificial intelligence in the Star Warsscience-fiction franchise. The term is a clipped form of "android",[1] a word originally reserved for robots designed to look and act like a human.[2] The word “android” itself stems from the ancient Greek word “androīdēs,” meaning “manlike.”[3]

Writer/director George Lucas first used the term “droid” in the second draft script of Star Wars, completed 28 January 1975.[4] However, the word does have a precedent - a writer named Mari Wolf used the word in her story “Robots of the World! Arise!” in 1952. It's not known if Lucas knew of this reference when he wrote Star Wars, or if he came up with the term independently.[5]

The word "droid" has been a registered trademark of Lucasfilm Ltd since 1977.[6][7][8][9]

Behind the scenes[edit]

Droids are performed using a variety of methods, including robotics, actors inside costumes (in one case, on stilts),[10] and computer animation.

Trademark[edit]

Lucasfilm registered "droid" as a trademark in 1977.[6][7][9] The term "Droid" has been used by Verizon Wireless under licence from Lucasfilm, for their line of smartphones based on the Android operating system. Motorola's late-2009 Google Android-based cell phone is called the Droid. This line of phone has been expanded to include other Android-based phones released under Verizon, including the HTC Droid Eris, the HTC Droid Incredible, Motorola Droid X, Motorola Droid 2, and Motorola Droid Pro.[11] The term was also used for the Lucasfilm projects EditDroid, a non-linear editing system, and SoundDroid, an early digital audio workstation.

The name "Omnidroid" was used with permission of Lucasfilm for the 2004 Pixar movie, The Incredibles.[12]

Fictional types of droids[edit]

The franchise, which began with the 1977 film Star Wars, features a variety of droids designed to perform specific functions. According to background material, most droids lack true sentience and are given processing abilities sufficient only to carry out their assigned function. However, over time droids may develop sentience on their own as they accumulate experience. Periodic memory wipes can prevent this from happening, but those who manage to escape this fate will begin to develop their own personalities.[13]

Within the Star Wars universe, a class system is used to categorize different droids depending on their skill-set: first class droids (physical, mathematical and medical sciences), second class droids (engineering and technical sciences), third class droids (social sciences and service functions), fourth class droids (security and military functions), and fifth class droids (menial labor and other non-intelligence functions).[14]

Protocol droid[edit]

A protocol droid specializes in translation, etiquette and cultural customs, and is typically humanoid in appearance.[15] Protocol droids are used to aid in communications during diplomatic or business negotiations and often function as personal assistants to their owners. Protocol droids are also used for military service, whether as administrators, couriers or spies. However, they do have a tendency to be eccentric and fussy.[16][17][18]

The most notable example is C-3PO, introduced in Star Wars and featured in all sequels and prequels.[19]4-LOM is a protocol droid turned bounty hunter who responds to Darth Vader's call to capture the Millennium Falcon in The Empire Strikes Back (1980).[20][21]TC-14 is a droid with feminine programming that appears in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999),[22] and ME-8D9 is an "ancient protocol droid of unknown manufacture" that resides and works as a translator at Maz Kanata's castle on Takodana in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).[23]

Astromech droid[edit]

An astromech droid is one of a series of "versatile utility robots generally used for the maintenance and repair of starships and related technology".[24] These small droids usually possess "a variety of tool-tipped appendages that are stowed in recessed compartments".[24] On certain spacecraft such as X-wing starfighters, astromech droids also double as the ship's navigational system. In addition to assisting with piloting and maintenance, astromech droids work in conjunction with the ship's hyperdrive to plot a safe course when traveling at faster-than-light speeds.[18][25]

R2-D2 is an astromech droid introduced in 1977's Star Wars and featured in all subsequent films.[26] The malfunctioning droid R5-D4 also makes a brief appearance in Star Wars.[27]U9-C4 is a timid droid sent on a mission with D-Squad, an all-droid special unit in Star Wars: The Clone Wars,[28]C1-10P (nicknamed "Chopper") is an oft-repaired, "outmoded" astromech who is one of the main characters of Star Wars Rebels,[29] and BB-8 is the astromech droid of X-wing fighter pilot Poe Dameron in The Force Awakens.[30]

Battle droid[edit]

A B1 battle droid as shown in the prequel trilogy and Clone Wars-related works.

A battle droid is a class of military robot used as an easily controlled alternative to human soldiers, most notably seen in the Star Wars prequel trilogy of films and the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series, in which 'B1' and 'B2' models are frequent antagonists. Due to their ubiquity, the terms 'B1' and 'battle droid' are used interchangeably; 'B2' models are also referred to as 'super' battle droids.[31][32] These droids are mainly used as the primary troops of the Confederacy of Independent Systems or Separatist Alliance, acting as the counterpart to the clone troopers of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars.

The tall, thin B1 model resembles the Geonosian species, whose Baktoid Armor Workshop designed and built the droids for the Trade Federation and later the Separatists. Standing 1.93 m (6 ft 4 in) tall, B1 battle droids were given a humanoid appearance so they could operate existing machinery and weaponry, and are meant to be cheaply mass-produced in large numbers. During the Battle of Naboo, battle droids were controlled from a central command computer as a cost-saving measure. By the time of the Clone Wars, this drawback was rectified by giving them the capacity for limited independent thought.[33][34][35][36] The B2 super battle droid, introduced in the Battle of Geonosis, was designed by the Techno Union and manufactured by Baktoid as an improvement of the original B1 model. Heavily armored and capable of limited independent thought, it features an integrated dual laser cannon in its right arm.[37][38]

B1 battle droids have been criticized for being ineffective and boring opponents in the Star Wars films, easily destroyed and devoid of any personality. However, Rafael Motamayor of SyFy Wire argues that the 2008 Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series rehabilitated their image by giving them distinct personalities. With the in-universe explanation that battle droids were upgraded to have independent thought, battle droids in the series are shown with self-awareness of their cannon fodder nature. This is often used as comic relief as battle droids comment on their tragic situation and even question orders that would get themselves or other battle droids killed.[39]

Beyond the B1 and B2 models, multiple other types of specialized battle droids have been featured in the Star Wars fictional universe.[34][40] The droideka is a three-legged heavy infantry unit designed by the Colicoids, a bloodthirsty insect-like species which it resembles. It is equipped with twin blasters and a deflector shield generator and can transform into its wheel form, allowing the droideka to roll towards the enemy at speeds of up to 75 km/h (47 mph).[41][42][43] Commando droids are superior versions of the B1 battle droid, built sturdier with armor to withstand blaster fire and more advanced combat programming and battlefield awareness.[44] The T-series tactical droids serve as advisors to Separatist commanders or command groups of other battle droids, while super tactical droids serve as generals of droid armies and fleets.[45] Droid vehicles and spacecraft include Vulture droids, Dwarf spider droids and Hailfire droids. After the Clone Wars, the Imperial Senate banned the manufacture of battle droids, but with loopholes for the building of "security" droids. This includes the Imperial military's KX-series of which K-2SO is an example.[17]

Probe droid[edit]

Probe droids first appear in The Empire Strikes Back as the Empire deploys thousands of them to locate the hidden Rebel base. They are described as traveling via hyperdrive-equipped pods to almost anywhere in the galaxy in order to search for their target. Also called probots, they are 2 m (6 ft 7 in) in height, floating above the ground on repulsorlifts and propelled by silenced thrusters. Probots are equipped with a variety of sensing equipment, including motion detectors and ultraviolet sensors, a blaster for self-defense, and a HoloNet transceiver to transmit any discoveries to Imperial forces.[17][46]

During the production of The Empire Strikes Back, Joe Johnston drew storyboard panels influenced by Dan O'Bannon and Moebius's short comic "The Long Tomorrow" (1975), one of which repurposes a pose Johnston admitted he borrowed from said work.[47] The same panel of the comic features a robot design by Moebius, which may have been the basis of the probe droid (or "probot") design that concept designers Johnston and Ralph McQuarrie created for the film.[48]

Other droids[edit]

Labor droids are used for a variety of tasks, from the very simple such as lifting heavy objects to the complex such as repairing machinery or administrating entire facilities, though their programming is very task-specific. Examples include mining droids which extract valuable resources, often from hazardous environments, and power droids, mobile fusion reactors which recharge ships, machines and other droids.[49] Interrogation droids utilize a variety of devices, chemicals and techniques to exploit a prisoner's weaknesses in order to extract information from them.[50][51] Assassin droids such as the IG-series act with ruthless efficiency to hunt down their targets; while some serve other masters, others may operate independently.[50][52] Medical droids on the other hand work tirelessly to heal people who have been harmed, whether as medical assistants, midwives or doctors. Many possess an encyclopedic knowledge of different species' physiologies so that patients can be properly diagnosed and treated.[53][54]

10 best Star Wars apps for Android

Disney Plus

Star Wars is one of the largest stories humans ever told. It spans multiple decades, multiple movies, multiple books, and multiple video games. You can literally engage in Star Wars content for years and not repeat anything. As such, you would expect a ton of great apps for it, right? Well, there definitely are some good ones to help your Star Wars experience even more. Here are the best Star Wars apps for Android.

The best Star Wars apps for Android


Disney+

Price: Free trial / $6.99 per month / $69.99 per year

Fandom by Wikia is one of the better information sources for Star Wars fans or fans of anything, really. You can find information about various characters, settings, story arcs, and very nearly all of the canon stuff in the series. The app is super basic and worked well in our testing. You simply search for the topic you want and the app shows you articles. You can access this information from your web browser as well if you don’t want to deal with the app directly.

Get it on Google Play


HoloCanon

Price: Free

Joe Hindy / Android Authority

HoloCanon is a bit of a wildcard on this list. It contains nearly every movie, show, and novel in the Star Wars universe. You simply run through and check off the stuff you’ve experienced. Now you know what’s left for you to find and engage with. It even includes Star Wars Battlefront II and Jedi: Fallen Order, two of the most popular video games in the canon universe. It’s a simple app with a simple premise, but we do hope the developer adds the ability to sync between devices at least (maybe via Google Drive backup) in the future. The developer has a Discord channel as well if you want to make suggestions or talk about the app.

Jedi Lightsaber Simulator

Price: Free

Everybody likes a good Jedi Lightsaber Simulator. This one is about as good as any other one. You can create your own little lightsaber and change the color if you want to. This isn’t an overly functional app, but it’s fun for a few minutes at a time and great for kids. Disney has a Jedi Challenges app (Google Play link). It lets you engage with the Star Wars universe with augmented reality. However, Disney’s app hasn’t seen an update since 2019 so we’re not sure if it’s abandoned or not.

Get it on Google Play


Movies Anywhere

Price: Free / Varies

Joe Hindy / Android Authority

Movies Anywhere is an excellent app to watch the Star Wars movies. You can purchase the movies on any one of a number of services and watch it with this app. The supported servers include Google TV, Amazon Prime, Microsoft Movies & TV, Vudu, and Apple TV. This is a good route for people who don’t want a monthly subscription like Disney+ but still want to watch the movies whenever they want. The app also comes with the ability to download movies for offline play and share a synced viewing experienced with up to nine other people.

Get it on Google Play


Reddit

Price: Free / $3.99 per month / $29.99 per year

Let’s face facts, you’ve always wanted to do the text crawl at the beginning of Star Wars but with something you wrote. This app lets you do it. You simply open the app, enter all the details, choose your scroll direction, and then let it ride. There is also the option to save the video so you can share it on social media or use it for whatever you want. Obviously this app has no function, but sometimes apps don’t need a function. They can just be fun to use.

Get it on Google Play


Star Wars Official

Price: Free

The official Star Wars app is an obvious recommendation for a list like this. It’s straight from Disney and has all kinds of news, experiences, and other media to explore and engage with. You can theme the app with a light side, dark side, and droid interface, play sound clips, watch official videos and movie trailers, and get official Star Wars news straight from the source. There is even a 5-day weather function if you want to use it. There is a lot here and it’s all mostly useful for Star Wars fans.

Get it on Google Play

Zedge

Price: Free / $0.99 per month / $4.99 per year

Zedge is easily the best ringtone and wallpaper combo app on mobile. It has a ton of ringtones, alarm tones, notification tones, and wallpapers to choose from. Based on a cursory search, it has over 18,000 Star Wars wallpapers, over 5,800 ringtones, and over 3,100 notification tones from a galaxy far, far away. Those numbers go up a whole bunch if you just search for The Mandalorian. In any case, if there’s a sound effect or song you want your phone to play, this app probably has it. The wallpapers could be better, but there is enough of a selection to appease most people. The subscription is entirely optional and removes the app’s admittedly obnoxious advertising.

Star Wars: Rivals

Star Wars: Rivals is a third-person shooter where you take control of some of the most popular Star Wars franchise characters. This title comes as no surprise for Star Wars fans who can opt to play with over twenty-five different characters in total, including names like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Darth Vader, Princess Leia and Boba Fett.

In Star Wars: Rivals, the game's control system is also very well suited to touch screens. With your left thumb you move the camera to aim your weapon, while on the right side of the screen you have to deal with triggering buttons, finding cover and launching special attacks. Pressing either side of your screen, you can also move to other areas to get covered.

In Star Wars: Rivals, you choose going solo or facing off against other online players. That being said, 1p campaigns have you reliving some of the most epic moments of the saga with your favorite character. Online mode, on the other hand, gets you the ability to measure up your skills against other players in exciting PvP duels. In this type of clashes, each player controls three different characters, switching off between one character and another as you please.

Star Wars: Rivals is an entertaining 'third-person' shooter, which has come to be expected from Star Wars games among well-versed fans of the popular space opera. Overall this Star Wars: Rivals makes for a good game to play alone exploring each campaign mode, or just for competing against other online players.

Top 5 best Star Wars games for Android

Star Wars is a franchise that’s been around for quite some time - and we’ve seen a lot of games take place in the Star Wars universe. You’ve got Lego Star Wars, pinball games related to Star Wars, games where you can play along with the story itself or games where you can put yourself into the Star Wars universe and see how you’d fit among the likes of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.

If you aren’t aware of the franchise already, this Star Wars games list is probably not for you. But if you are a fan of the Star Wars franchise and are looking for the best Star Wars games on Android, you’ve come to the right place.

Let’s get into the list.

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE LIST »

1

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is a turn-based game set in the Star Wars universe, where you can pick the dark side or light side and become the master of the galaxy. You will need to improve your strategy and build the best team you can so that you can take on other players in an attempt to conquer the galaxy. It’s got loads of challenges to test your tactical nous.

2

Star Wars: KOTOR II

Star Wars: KOTOR II sees you enter into the universe after Jedi have been basically taken out by the Sith Lords. You will need to start making important decisions, as a lone Jedi, to help your struggling people and reconnect with the Force. Everything in the world is stacked against you, but if you make good decisions and are determined, you might be able to survive.

3

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens

In Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you can find yourself playing as a bunch of the iconic heroes from the movie - Finn, Han Solo, C-3PO and more, the choice is yours! You will be making your way through the story, which has been given a Lego-inspired twist. As you battle enemies or explore the world, you are shown lots of lego-versions of the world, and can actually create Lego builds to solve puzzles or play around with. It’s a fun take on the franchise.

4

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is a card battler styled Star Wars game, where you will be building up a team of characters from across different areas of the franchise, and use them in RGP-style, turn-based battles, hoping to come out on top. This game is one of the more complex on the list, with a levelling up system that some people struggle with, but once you have played the game for a while and understand it better, you will be able to easily power up Jedi and tool up Clone Troopers - you’ll just need to sink some time into this game!

5

Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga

Though the title The Complete Saga might be misleading, as the franchise has grown and continued since the release of this game, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga is still well worth a place on your Android device. This game is funny, simple, and has a lot of great action bits that are also family-friendly if you have little ones interested in the series. You can play through all six of the movies, changing characters, making Lego buildings, and playing around in a slightly goofier version of the Star Wars Universe.
