- ―EG-57's stored memory from Kessel
EG-57 was a green-plated GNK-series power droid manufactured by Industrial Automaton that in 10 BBY witnessed a slave and droid uprising in one of the Pyke Syndicate's spice mines on the planet Kessel. During the event it stored an internal data record consisting of an image of the mine's control room, showing the freed droids P6B-LT2, P1-SZE, C00-L05C, P4T-GM, S1D6-SA-5, and DV-4D4.
By 34 ABY, EG-57 had come to serve in the Resistance, and was part of its forces stationed on the planet Batuu during the world's occupation by the First Order. EG-57 worked in Resistance Supply in Black Spire Outpost, where it stood storing power for the Resistance next to a long-range antenna with fellow power droid EG-58.
Behind the scenes
EG-57 first appeared as a prop within the themed land Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, which opened to guests at Disneyland Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios Park in 2019. The prop is capable of emitting various sound effects. The droid simultaneously appeared in the Star Wars: Datapad application launched alongside the themed land, where it was first identified as EG-57, although Galaxy's Edge staff were originally told to refer to it as VD-57. Only the Hollywood Studios datapad confirms that EG-57 is the green GNK droid.
