|R-8009 utility droid|
|Chronological and political information|
Unlike other utility droids of that era, the R-8009 had the skills and hardware to directly interface with other droids and computers, which allowed the owner to program the droid to return to a designated computer terminal and receive new instructions without the need for another droid to constantly update the R-8009's programming. Cheap, relatively skilled, and capable of operating quietly, subtly, and unobtrusively around living beings, the R-8009 could be found everywhere from the Deep Core to the Outer Rim.
