Re: Episode 1.1 Talis

Talis is no lawyer, but he is fairly sure a temporary shutdown from an internal reboot does not call for claiming a droid as salvage unless that reboot causes a memory wipe. On the other hand, a droid is intelligent enough to feign a shutdown in order to trick someone into helping it. Talis will wai...

Re: Episode 1.1 Talis

Droids are an interesting case, they are sentient, capable of making decisions and even feeling emotions, but they are not alive. They have no more presence in the force than a rock or any other normal machine (things like Lightsabers that are crafted using the Force do not count in that statement)....

Curiosity prompts Talis to move closer. An error message in binary and a location along the projected rout his ship was on. Possibly one of the droids from that craft, which had a problem with not coping well with the unexpected. The question is, how did it wind up here, if so?
