- "FN-417, hold position!"
- ―FN-417 receives orders
The First Order stormtrooper FN-417 was one of many deployed to the planet Takodana in 34 ABY to recover the Resistance astromech droid BB-8. As the First Order's forces attacked the castle of the pirate Maz Kanata, where the droid had been spotted, FN-417 moved into the surrounding woods, where the scavenger Rey spotted the trooper. After Rey failed to fire an initial shot from her NN-14 blaster pistol due to the weapon's safety still being on, the stormtrooper fired off one shot before being killed by the scavenger.
- "Oh, safety."
- ―Rey realizes the safety of her blaster is still on while trying to shoot FN-417
FN-417 was a human stormtrooper who served in the military group known as the First Order's FN Corps during their conflict with the New Republic–backed Resistance. In the year 34 ABY, the trooper was amongst many deployed to the planet Takodana in order to recover the Resistance astromech droid BB-8, who had been sighted in the castle of the pirate Maz Kanata. As the attack on the castle began, FN-417 moved into the surrounding forest but was ordered to hold position via radio.
Overhearing the order from nearby, the scavenger Rey attempted to shoot the stormtrooper, but failed in her first attempt as the safety of her NN-14 blaster pistol was still on. Before she had another chance to shoot, FN-417 turned and opened fire but missed. Rey then fired off two more shots with her pistol, the second of which hit and killed the trooper, allowing Rey to escape.
Behind the scenesEdit
FN-417 was portrayed by an uncredited extra in the film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, which was released on December 18, 2015. The voice on FN-417's radio was that of Matt Lanter, the voice of Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
