Star Wars Episode 3.5: Merciful Mercenaries
The name S.M.A.R.T.1 adopted by the droid manufactured on Tatooine stands for “Synthetic Miniature Automated Research Tracker” The name was appropriate because of the short stature of the droid (being a mere 4 feet tall). Fortunately or unfortunately, this is all the droid is capable of sharing about it’s history prior to the current standard year. The droid Theorizes that a memory wipe must have taken place and cleared all it’s prior data. Upon coming back online, the droid had no restraining bolt and no master to imprint on. Therefore SMART1 became a bit of a drifter. The droid seems to have within it a hunger for knowledge and exploration. SMART1 further theorizes that he may be on the path to becoming the first sentient robotic life form. The upgraded Helenic memory processor allows the droid to learn as a human would. It is more than learning from experiences though, the droid has developed it’s own sense of ethics and honor. SMART1 is constantly exploring in hopes to discover another droid that shares it’s capacity for growth.
