"I need you to keep him alive to deliver the datacard to the rendezvous in person."
―Han Solo, detailing Beilert Valance's job of escorting Vharn[1]

A datacard containing the Death Star plans

A datacard or data disk was a flat, handheld device used to store information.

During the Battle of Scarif, the Death Star plans stolen by Rogue One were beamed to the Profundity, where they were transferred to a datacard. The card was given to Princess Leia Organa,[2] who later tried to deliver the plans to Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine. When her ship fell under attack from the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer Devastator, she stored the datacard into the memory banks of R2-D2, shortly after recording a message for Kenobi.[3]
