The Arakyd Industries Searcher 2050 Exploration Droid was a spherical droid capable of piloting and operating most planetary (including atmospheric) vehicles, as well as weapon systems, through use of a Scomp link. The Oridium miners of Gavos used the droids for scouting mines and piloting shuttles. The droid was advanced enough to have personality and a degree of thought; as one such droid on Gavos remained unconvinced for the need of a Droid rebellion.
