C-3PO’S SACRIFICE

It looks like after being a part of the franchise since the very beginning, we will see the last of everyone’s favorite protocol droid, C-3PO. In the trailers, we saw C-3PO hooking his mind up to something and that he was taking one last look at his friends. That implies that what he is about to do will either wipe his mind again or destroy him completely. I think I know what C-3PO is going to do. Due to the losses the Resistance sustained in The Last Jedi, they are in desperate need of weapons, warships, and soldiers. There is one one army the Resistance could summon that would give them a numerical advantage over the First Order: the Separatist Droid Army. In this image, you can clearly see a dormant B1-series battle droid behind C-3PO. At its height, the Separatist Droid Army numbered in the quintillions before they were collectively deactivated after the Clone Wars. It has been more than half a century since the Clone Wars and it is likely the Droid Army is still dormant and scattered across the galaxy. There have been cases where some battle droids did not deactivate or were reactivated through rogue parties, but the majority of the droid army is still dormant. You might ask how C-3PO could raise the entire droid army by himself. I think the answer is Attack of the Clones, which showed C-3PO switching heads and bodies with a B1-series battle droid. I think something else happened when this happened to C-3PO. I think he also formed some kind of connection with the droid army and now C-3PO might be accessing that connection in order to give the Resistance the army it needs to defeat the First Order once and for all. However, even though the droid army outnumbers the First Order, the First Order’s forces are more advanced and in better condition. The droid army has not fought a single battle in over fifty years, which means most of them must be rusted to a pulp. Still, what they lack in maintenance and advanced weaponry, the droid army makes up for in sheer numbers, which means they could overwhelm the First Order. On the downside, it will be sad to see such a favorite character die after all this time, but I know he will give his life for the good of the galaxy. C-3PO, the Force will be with you. Always.

A REAL LIFE R2-D2!

While visiting the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, I came across a robot that reminded me of R2-D2 from Star Wars. Like R2-D2, this robot operates in space in order to repair the exterior of space crafts. What was even more amazing was the robot’s humanoid appearance. I cannot wait to see what new innovations NASA will create to bring us closer to a Star Wars-like world. Who knows? One day they may create a real-life lightsaber! You never know!

STAR WARS: K-2S0

This is one of the new characters in Star Wars: Rogue One, K-2S0, who is a former Imperial enforcer droid working for the Rebel Alliance. If this droid calls someone a “meatbag”, I will be completely happy because it would be a reference from HK-47 from Knights of the Old Republic. Plus, being an enforcer droid, K-2S0 can serve as extra muscle because he is programmed and equipped with the best of Imperial engineering, which would make him a valuable asset in the Rebels’ mission to steal the Death Star’s plans. I hope he will be as lovable as BB-8 from The Force Awakens.
