R7-T1, nicknamed Artee, served as Luke Skywalker's in-flight astromech droid when the Jedi Master borrowed an E-wing escort starfighter from the New Republic Defense Force for a brief time during the Black Fleet Crisis. However, Skywalker never became comfortable with either the new starfighter design or the newer-model droid, and soon abandoned them in favor of his usual T-65 X-wing starfighter and his old friend and trusty astromech droid, R2-D2.
Behind the scenes Edit
The visual representation of R7-T1 was first created by Hasbro through their "Droid Factory" promotion where one part of the droid would be found packaged with several action figures in 2008. The figures that contained the individual parts are Saesee Tiin (right leg), Padmé Amidala (left leg), Mon Calamari Warrior (main body), and Quarren Soldier (head and middle leg).
