This article's subject originated in a source that was released outside of the Lucas Licensing process, and its licensing status was never confirmed by Lucasfilm Ltd.

Memory diskettes were droid parts that functioned as the central processing area of a unit.[1] Such pieces of technology were similar to the droid brains and the verbobrains.[2] Professor Cantebarius H. Broom, a deranged scientist, was known to deactivate droids by removing their memory diskettes.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The memory diskettes were first mentioned in Troublesome Outing,[1] a Spanish story of undetermined canonicity that was published in 1986.[3] Abel G. Peña, who translated the story in English for the first time in 2013, referred to the use of the word "diskette" as a "quaint anachronism." In the 1980s, massive-memory cloud storage and flash drives were still inconceivable. But nowadays, diskettes look out of place in the futuristic Star Wars universe.[4]
