Fragments from the Rim
B1 Battle Droid
B1 Battle Droids made up the backbone of the Trade Federation Droid Army and the Separatist Droid Army.
B1s were perhaps the most numerous – and expendable – soldiers in galactic history, and, unlike most organic soldiers, they were capable of action in hostile environments such as underwater or in space. They were designed, for the most part, to defeat their enemies through sheer numbers, not through their ability to think (they were very vulnerable to tricks) and utilize combat skills (unlike clone troopers).
Early battles involving the droids required a central computer for the droids to “think” from, but this was mostly removed post-Battle of Naboo after an attack destroyed the mainframe stationed there, resulting in all the droids on the planet being deactivated.
Our heroes came across 24 unpacked B1 Battle Droids and told Jabba the Hutt that they had been jettisoned into deep space.
One can only imagine what Jabba will do once he finds out.
