Where is this? Edit

I'm wondering, does it ever say in the radio drama that: "TK-421 and his unconscious comrades were found aboard the Falcon. After attempts to revive him came to naught, TK-421's fellow stormtroopers brought him to the nearest medical bay."

Because it sure isn't in the movie. --Darthvadersnewmaster 22:02, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

  • It's in the ANH novelization. I'm going to go look through it and see which chapter it's in.Muuuuuurgh 04:32, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
    • OK, it's on page 156 in my copy. Given the likelihood that there are varying page numbers for different editions of the novelization, you should be looking 2-3 pages into Chapter 10 for the paragraph that starts with "Someone finally discovered the two unconscious guards..."Muuuuuurgh 04:50, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
      • Well, if this helps, in the 1981 Star Wars Radio Drama, which is considered canon, the following dialogue took place between several stormtroopers and the security chief upon the discovery of the bodies aboard the Falcon. --jedijbp 20:03, 3 January 2010
Stormtrooper 1: "One of the duty crew's been shot, and the other's been knocked cold."
Stormtrooper 2: "A couple of you get them down to sick bay."
Stormtrooper 1: "Patch me through the security commander."
Security Commander: "What's your situation there?"
Stormtrooper 1: "The [unintelligable] and the command officer were looking through the captured starship; the scanning crewmen on the ship were knocked unconscious and the gaurds have been shot."

Clone? Edit

I see he's in the list of clones, but I can't see any info about that on this page. Can anyone source this?... Klow 15:28, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

  • I've got a hunch that there is no source. Unit 8311 15:35, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
    • It's on his CCG card 18:13, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
      • I think you mean his SWTCG card, but it does say on that he is a clone - Kingpin13 18:16, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

TK-421's armor Edit

I think his armor is worn by Han. Note the themal detonator on his back when he walked off the Falcon. Luke took the one with a comlink on his back.
So, that picture actually is not of TK-421. Because when this trooper turns his back, we can have a clear view of his comlink, but no thermal detonator.

First Appearence Edit

I believe the article is incorrect in TK-421's 1st appearence as it says that The Star Wars Episode 4 book. However I know this to be wrong as I have a copy of the origonal book that came out before the movie and he is not called TK-421, his number was changed for the movie and later books.

Jedi OutcastEdit

If I'm not completely mistaken, TK-421 appeared in the multiplayer mode of Jedi Outcast, at least the Gamecube version, which I possess. Can anyone confirm/deny this? {{SUBST:User:Xavius/Signature}} 12:05, 16 October 2008 (UTC)


Why are we using the nickname template? He is a clone (see above), and TK-421 is his designation, isn't it? Also, someone needs to put the BHS section more into prose. SoresuMakashi(Everything I tell you is a lie) 10:44, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

  • As I proved with the battle droid O.M.5, this is his correct name because it is his designation in the Stormtrooper Corps. Template removed. End of story. Thank you.--RC 1138I hate bugs! 02:53, December 12, 2009 (UTC)


Yeah doesn't he die on the Death Star making his death 0 BBY/0 ABY? --Darth R2-D2, Dark Lord of the Droids (talk) 11:24, March 5, 2013 (UTC)

Today is April 21st. So, today is 4/21. I came to his talk page. Today is TK-421 Day! :D

Maybe Not A Serial Number Edit

TK-421 could have been a comms code/callsign. 07:00, December 23, 2013 (UTC)

  • You know what? You're actually on to something. "Serial number" sounds more appropriate for a product than a person. Looks like it only appears in the article's "Behind the scenes" section (the rest of the article just uses "designation"), but I'll change it anyway. Menkooroo (talk) 07:12, December 23, 2013 (UTC)

What's all that about going off-duty, a bag, and so on?Edit

Is this stuff from the book? Because it obviously wasn't in the movie, nor do I think Robot-chicken is a source...Anyone?-- 12:40, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
