- "In the twelve years that I have ricocheted around this galaxy like the legendary Roon Comet, I have encountered a great many interesting personalities."
The Roon Comet was a comet that moved in a way that resembled a ricochet. In the year 20 BBY, the protocol droid I-5YQ compared his travels throughout the galaxy to the motion of the Roon Comet, which by that time had become legendary.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Roon Comet was first mentioned in the 2004 novel MedStar I: Battle Surgeons, which was authored by Michael Reaves and Steve Perry. Although Tail of the Roon Comets, the 1985 episode of Star Wars: Droids: The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO, established the existence of comets in the Roon system, MedStar I: Battle Surgeons did not provide a connection between the Roon Comet and that star system.
