- "Have you checked out the new T-17s?"
"The T-17s, as far as I can tell, are a great improvement."
"Yeah. That's what they tell you. But believe me, they don't hold up."
- ―A pair of stormtroopers discuss the T-17
Rey once overheard a pair of First Order stormtroopers discussing the new T-17 while on Starkiller Base. One of them thought that they were a "great improvement," though the other replied that "they don't hold up."
Behind the scenesEdit
The T-17 was mentioned in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens in a conversation that is a reference to a conversation between two stormtroopers in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope in which two stormtroopers discuss the BT-16 while Obi-Wan Kenobi disables the tractor beam.
