- "This R2 unit has a bad motivator, look."
- ―Luke Skywalker, inspecting R5-D4
A motivator was a type of device found in R5 series astromech droids such as R5-D4, GNK-series power droid such as EG-30, and starships such as the Millennium Falcon. If defective they could blow out explosively, potentially sabotaging the entire droid.
