- "Don't worry about Thermal -- he looks weird, but he's a fine fellow."
- ―Kitster Chanchani Banai
- "Smooth! You got the data? Thanks. This weather out here was about to repave my exterior. I gotta get this onto the 'Net, thanks."
- ―Thermal Det
During 1.5 ABY, a slaver named Drik Bandrik became upset with Kitster Banai's persistent attempts to improve the lives of slaves on Tatooine. In order to ruin Kitster, Drik Bandrik framed him with a large number of fake crimes, including the supposed murder of moisture farmer Krin Vel.
However, a spacer working for Kitster managed to find Krin Vel, who then proceeded to help Kitster compile evidence clearing his name. Kitster tasked the spacer with delivering this evidence to Thermal Det, a slicer who proceeded to put the information onto the HoloNet. Jabba Desilijic Tiure soon learned of Drik's misgivings as a result.
Behind the scenesEdit
Thermal Det was a Non-Player Character (NPC) in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies prior to it's closure on December 15, 2011. Players who performed a series of quests for Kitster in Mos Espa had to find Thermal Det and give him evidence clearing Kitster's name.
Thermal Det appears to have been named after the thermal detonator.
