- "Cybernetics are such a pain. Look at this: the 66K needs a novic patellar to power the joint, but BioTech only sells it in the Core and Colonies."
- ―Riley, in the Smuggler's Guide
BioTech Industries was a company that produced cybernetic technology, including the novic patellar, which powered the joint of a 66K cybernetic leg. They sold novic patellars only in the Core Worlds and Colonies. Because of this, although she needed a novic patellar for her cybernetic leg, the smuggler Riley did not have access to one. In place of the BioTech novic patellar, she used a Lotho Junker omnislug. She recorded her frustration over the limited availability of the company's product in the pirate Maz Kanata's Smuggler's Guide.
