The ASP-series labor droid, also known as the ASP general-purpose droid or simply the ASP droid, was a series of labor droids manufactured by Industrial Automaton and used to perform manual tasks throughout the galaxy. There were 20 different models of ASP droid available from the outset, including the ASP-2, ASP-7, and ASP-19.

An ASP droid known as K0-5D was extensively modified for gladitorial combat.

History[edit | edit source]

Manufactured by Industrial Automaton, for a great many years the ASP general-purpose droid was a popular choice for many first-time droid buyers. This was thanks to its relatively low price point of only around a thousand credits, as well as featuring a simple structure that offered the real possibility of being able to tinker with the droid. In spite of their shortcomings, ASPs were both popular and successful, ultimately spawning almost as many home-grown variants as they had owners.[1]

During the Clone Wars, ASPs were employed as support droids by the Separatist Droid Army to perform heavy labor and tasks that B1-series battle droids and B2-series super battle droids were valuable or fragile to waste on.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The ASP-series labor droid first appeared in Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire, a 1996 Star Wars Legends multimedia project.[6] The model became canon when it appeared in the 1997 special edition re-release of the 1977 film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.[7] It was first identified as the ASP-series labor droid in Knights of Fate, a 2018 sourcebook for the Star Wars: Force and Destiny roleplaying game.[8]
