- "She's this fully loaded droid, and what are your programmed skills?"
- ―Stuart Zissu, comparing C-3PO's skills to that of a science research droid
Science research droids were a line of astromech droids that were produced during the early Galactic Civil War. As their name implied, those droids were designed to collect specimens and conduct scientific research. By 0 BBY, their design was considered top-notch. In order to be adaptable to any terrain, they could retract their wheels and use feet instead.
