"TK-421, why aren't you at your post? TK-421, do you copy?"
―Imperial officer Pol Treidum[src]

BiographyEdit

TheFollyOfTK421

TK-421 was ambushed inside the Millennium Falcon.

TK-421 worked in maintenance, and with help of the mouse droid MSE-6-G735Y, delivered supplies and equipment to different sectors of the station. On one occasion, a mishap with G7's holorecorder playback caused him to catch the attention of Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin, who develops an interest in the trooper.[4]

When the Death Star captured the Millennium Falcon, TK-421 was ordered to guard the ship while an Imperial scanning crew determined if anyone was aboard. Responding to a call for help from inside the ship, TK-421 and another trooper were ambushed by Han Solo. Solo and Luke Skywalker then used the two troopers' armor to infiltrate the Death Star. Not too long afterward, the Battle of Yavin commenced, which ended with the Rebel Alliance destroying the Death Star.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

TK-421 was portrayed by Stephen Bayley in Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope, but was not given credit.
