- "Your Brilliancy will recall that [the protocol droid] was, ah, reassigned when his translation of your joke about the three Hardex and the bantha failed to amuse the Hardexian ambassador."
- ―Steggus, to Craw
The Hardex were a sentient species native to the planet Hardex in the Jubilar sector of the Outer Rim Territories. Prior to 5.5 BBY, the Hardex sent an ambassador to the Targonnian leader Craw. Craw told a joke involving three Hardex and a bantha which was poorly received by the Hardexian ambassador. Consequently, Craw had the protocol droid who translated his joke deactivated and turned into a water fountain.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Hardex were created by Jan Strnad and received a mention in his comic book Star Wars Droids: Season of Revolt 2, published by Dark Horse Comics in 1995. Their homeworld was later included and placed in The Essential Atlas.
