If you could pick one droid to have at your side, which one would it be?
That's right, one droid. From any point in time, which would you pick?

My dream choice would be a non-cyborg General Grievous droid. Just replace the organic parts with machines, make it a full droid, and then I'd slap a blaster on each of the four arms.

My actual first choice would be a YVH droid. If they can take on Yuuzhan Vongs, they can take on the regular thugs of the galaxy. I'd probably slap on some cosmetic changes so it doesn't look like a skeleton.

MachineCult 08-19-2006 06:19 PM

The first droid that comes to mind is Guri, lol. But after some thought a HK, IG, Magnaguard or even a protocol droid would come in handy.

RC-1162 08-19-2006 06:36 PM

HK-47 without a doubt. i want nothing else :D

Terran I 08-19-2006 06:50 PM

R2-D2 He saved many lives in both trilogies, so I think there is no better droid than R2!

R2-D2 for me aswell.

PoiuyWired 08-19-2006 07:29 PM

Depending on your definition of Droids.
Guri is the obvious choice.
Iron Knights. :3

Then its HK47, and artoo, and IG88, and the hard-wired droid on Inferno.

If not a nice G*NK is also good.

Great Scott! 08-19-2006 08:16 PM

Dang, I thought I'd be the first to say Guri...

Well, Guri! ;P

Jeff 08-19-2006 10:26 PM

Probably HK-47, he's just awesome to have a conversation with as well as his combat skills :D

Commander Obi-Wan 08-20-2006 12:54 AM

I'll take 3PO. Just the fact that he can speak more languages than I can. And I wouldn't have to study for many years to learn some languages. Though, I'd make him more useful, edit his parts so he can move quicker and make his way around easier. And maybe strap on a few defensive weapons.

Darth_Terros 08-20-2006 04:01 AM

Im suprised no ones said I-Five he's probably my favourite droid out of all the EU i'm hoping he' gonna show up in the new Coruscant Nights series.

MachineCult 08-20-2006 05:41 AM

Terros, what is I-five and what is Coruscant Nights?

swphreak 08-20-2006 08:59 AM

I-5YQ is a heavily modified 5YQ protocol droid. He has hidden lasers in his index fingers, a hidden compartment for smuggling, and other dothingies. I-Five appears in Shadow Hunter and the Medstar books. And Coruscant Night is a new novel written by the same guy who did Shadow Hunter and the Medstar books. So it's possible he will return.

Darth_Terros 08-20-2006 09:02 AM

Coruscant nights is a upcoming series of books set in the Dark times its strongly rumour I-five will show up and hopefully Lorn Pavan's *I-fives former owner killed by Maul* Jedi son.

As for who is I-five i'll just qoute Wookieepedia


I-5YQ, or I-Five, was a wise-cracking 5YQ-series protocol droid that had his creative dampeners disabled, rendering him quasi-sentient. He possessed several unique talents, including the ability to project a variety of pitched sounds that could do everything from curing sentients' hangovers to sonically cleaning dirt off of his coverings. Also, he had the presence of mind to alter the brightness of his photoreceptors in an attempt to visually display emotions. He was owned by information broker Lorn Pavan, who treated him less like a droid and more like a business partner, and who installed several modifications for I-Five, including small lasers located in the droid's index fingers.

The partnership would not last, however, as Pavan was murdered by the Sith Lord Darth Maul after the duo became involved in Trade Federation officer Hath Monchar's plot to sell details of the impending Trade Federation blockade of Naboo. Knowing that he would not survive the ordeal, Pavan entrusted I-Five to Sakiyan restaurant owner and small-time criminal Tuden Sal before his death, but was betrayed, as Sal had long coveted the droid and immediately set about reprogramming him.

Years later, during the Clone Wars, I-Five showed up on Drongar, working as a medical assistant at RMSU-7. There he befriended Sullustan reporter Den Dhur, surgeons Jos Vondar and Zan Yant, nurse Tolk le Trene, and Jedi Padawan Barriss Offee. Under the tutelage of the hard-drinking Dhur, I-Five successfully got himself electronically drunk one night at the Rimsoo's cantina and managed to have one of his arms pulled out of its socket by a Wookiee.

Slowly but surely, I-Five was regaining his lost memories, and by the end of the Battle of Drongar, he remembered nearly everything about his past, including a promise he had made to Lorn Pavan, which was to watch over his son who was in training as a Padawan at the Jedi Temple. Upon hearing of this, Barriss Offee gave a sample of the wonder drug bota to I-Five and ordered him to deliver it to the Temple for examination so that the droid would have a plausible excuse for shirking his medical duties. I-Five then left Drongar for Coruscant with his new friend Den Dhur by his side.
There you go buddy a breif history of the awesome droid I-Five!

PoiuyWired 08-20-2006 10:26 AM

so I-5 is basically like C3PX? Or will he BECOMES C3PX?

Davinq 08-21-2006 12:43 PM

HK is a must. If you've got some thugs pickin' on you...

"Master, may I dispose of these pesky meatbags?"

Prime 08-21-2006 12:57 PM

T3 or R2, I can't decide. On one hand, T3 is an astromech with mad combat skills. On the otherhand R2 ****ING FLIES AROUND!!!11oneone

RC-1162 08-22-2006 12:44 PM

and dont forget, R2 pwned 2 SBDs on his own :D

PoiuyWired 08-22-2006 01:48 PM

R2 may not be that combat oriented on average, but he is a l33t h4x0r.

Speaking of which, I think I might make a poll out of this topic, the following Droids should be on it, other suggestions??

G*NK (Just cause these guys formed a religion)

DarthMuffin 08-22-2006 01:54 PM

It's a tie between an astromech and a HK-type for me.

Astromechs (especially R2 :)) are nice. They're useful in many situations and can fit in most starfighters. An HK-type is both a bodyguard, agent to do the hard work and a protocol droid. Of course, I'd program him so that he uses "meatbag" often.

Davinq 08-22-2006 07:18 PM

Oh yeah, that's right! Might have to tip my vote now in R2's favor :)

Nagru 08-22-2006 07:24 PM

If there's any droid that I'd like to have it's a YVH droid. It can take a direct hit from a starfighter and keep on going. Plus it has all the weaponry and sensors anyone could ever want.

Davinq 08-22-2006 07:39 PM

But not a coralskipper from Star By Star, IIRC.


RC-1162 08-22-2006 07:43 PM

i dont think anything without shields can stand against a plasma round from a coralskipper

Nagru 08-22-2006 10:23 PM

Actually it took THREE direct hits from a coralskipper without fully dying. On the first shot it's slightly damaged and desides to sacrifice itself as it has become a liability to the mission. It gets hit TWO more times and still is able to direct itself into the coralskippers path and self destruct. By testing, it can take one coralskipper blast in the chest without breaching, but needs less than 24 hours to repair plus a new laminanium ingot and energy recharge.

igyman 10-07-2006 07:31 PM

To answer the original question of this thread:
HK-47, of course. There's nothing better than to have your own maniacal assassin droid.

PoiuyWired 10-09-2006 11:26 AM

Wonder if anyone would actually choose G0T0... :3

MachineCult 10-09-2006 11:56 AM

^^^ Lol, no way, G0T0 freaked me out.

Diego Varen 10-09-2006 04:06 PM

I'd say either 3P0 or R2, since 3P0 could translate languages for me and R2 could save my life now and again.

Jason Skywalker 10-09-2006 07:00 PM

Hmm, this is a tough one. I'd say... either HK-51 (that's right, 51!) or N.K. Necrosis.

Davinq 10-09-2006 08:01 PM

What is it with all the activity in the Star Wars forum this last week?


Prime 10-10-2006 03:01 PM

If a coralskipper is alive, is getting hit by its plasma round equivalent to getting hiy by a loogie?

Necrosis is not all that cool really. How about a pet Droideka Mk.II ?

jomaster 10-11-2006 01:31 PM

i would have to say fidelis personally 'gentlemans personal gentle thing' and then suddenly turns into a killing machine!!!

Doctorjones 10-12-2006 02:37 PM

I would probably say N-K Necrosis.

Darth_Velrogh 10-12-2006 02:55 PM

I'd choose HK-47! Hes the best. Its fun the way he talks and his combat skills are great. Follow the link to see a cool comic about kotor:

lordzack 10-23-2006 12:43 PM

A Protodeka or B-3.

TKA-001 10-24-2006 09:16 PM

I would take either HK-47, or an HK-50/51. Just think how useful it would be to have a badass assassin droid following you around.

Emperor Devon 10-25-2006 03:03 AM

I can't believe no one thought of a World Devastator. :xp:

RC-1162 10-25-2006 03:31 AM

a World Devastator won't fit in that opera you're going to :xp:
and anyway, its not a droid, just a hovering building, from what they showed in Rogue Squadron

Sabretooth 10-25-2006 03:50 AM

Ah well, the GG non-cyborg looks cool, and my first thought was IG-88, because he's just ultimate.

But yes, nothing beats the awesome sexiness of Guri.
