Craw's droid

Craw's protocol droid was deactivated after translating a joke about three Hardex.

"Your Brilliancy will recall that [the protocol droid] was, ah, reassigned when his translation of your joke about the three Hardex and the bantha failed to amuse the Hardexian ambassador."
Steggus, to Craw[src]

The Hardex were a sentient species[1] native to the Hardex system in the Jubilar sector of the Outer Rim Territories.[2][3] Prior to 5.5 BBY,[source?] the Hardex sent an ambassador to the Targonnian leader Craw. Craw told a joke involving three Hardex and a bantha which was poorly received by the Hardexian ambassador. Consequently, Craw had the protocol droid who translated his joke deactivated and turned into a water fountain.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Hardex were created by Jan Strnad and received a mention in his comic book Star Wars Droids: Season of Revolt 2, published by Dark Horse Comics in 1995.

Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. This article treats the Hardex system as the location of one such homeworld with regard to the Hardex species.
