- ―A pair of stormtroopers discuss the T-17
Rey once overheard a pair of First Order stormtroopers discussing the new T-17 while on Starkiller Base. One of them thought that they were a "great improvement," though the other replied that "they don't hold up," and implied he knew from personal experience.
Behind the scenes
The T-17 was mentioned in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens in a conversation that was referenced in a conversation between two stormtroopers in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, in which they discuss the T-15 before being knocked out.
